Fab or Fad? Beauty Pie Beauty Buyer’s Club

I've had this post brewing for a good few months and I've spent the whole time mulling it all over and trying to process what my thoughts are on this new way to buy beauty products.  I'm sure you've seen the multitude of posts introducing you to Beauty Pie, but just to give you a quick overview, it's a subscription service that allows you to buy top range (unbranded) beauty products at considerably reduced costs whilst paying a monthly membershi[...]

A Quick Update and Bath Product Recommendations Please!!

Oh my gosh, I cannot believe how little I have blogged in the last my defence, I have just moved home (I'm still doing the crossover now - never have you seen so many beauty products boxed up; I keep squealing at things that I thought were long gone - Hello By Terry Light Expert Click Brush!) and I have really struggled to get everything done as I've moved into a property that was completely bare, so I've had to get carpet, furniture, m[...]

My Week in Review #2

It hasn't been the most exciting week, but there are a few things I thought I'd share... Listening to Amazon Prime 90's Radio Station - I blimin' love Amazon Prime; I love the quick deliveries, I love the choice of film and TV available, and I love the music app which is just phenomenal as it allows you to download full albums from a huge selection, or listen to radio stations of which there are thousands - you can fast forward tracks you don't[...]

A Belated Happy New Year

Ever since the year started (a whole week ago) I've been in a state of limbo waiting for certain things to occur so that I could crack on with my 2017.  Many of you will know that I've been trying to move home for literally years (since I was 8 months pregnant, Teddy is now 3...) and I've finally found somewhere suitable which I was supposed to move into before Christmas, but there have been repeated delays and I'm still not there which is so ann[...]


Where did you go, blogging mojo?

Could I BE any more self-indulgent today? Please forgive me, I've been really struggling for a few weeks and I finally feel like I can start writing again, so I'm going with it and I hope that normal activity will resume shortly! I'm sure you've read plenty of posts recently moaning about blogging and the down here's another one. I've always believed that blogging needs to come from love and passion, so whenever anyone writes to me a[...]


I always feel a bit rubbish when I become inconsistent with my posting schedule, as I feel like on one hand I spend months trying to convince you to read and follow my blog with the understanding that I'll update regularly and try and share as much beauty and lifestyle news as I can possibly cram in, before then disappearing for the majority of July! July is probably the busiest month of the year for beauty events as we get to check out all the Ch[...]

Hello New Blog!

New week, new blog! I've finally finished the design of my blog and I'm pretty happy with it - it's not perfect, nor will it ever be, but I feel like I've done all I can to get it to the point that I'm happy with it and I've learned a lot of handy little skills along the way, so it's been a very exciting, and surprisingly not-scary experience redesigning my own blog! I used a template design from PipDig before doing lots of little tweaks and add-o[...]


#LightsCameraCurrys Camera Workshop

Last weekend I did something I very rarely do on a Saturday, which is get up early, get dressed and actually leave the home to do something practical and beneficial, rather than sit around in my PJs watching Breaking Bad and Friends reruns.  I went off to (not-so) Sunny Kings Cross with a group of bloggers to a day of learning all about photography and how to put our DSLRs to proper use....Basically the idea was to claw our stubborn fingers away[...]

Beauty Blogger Awards 2015

Beauty Bloggers 2015 is going to be a very exciting event held at Kensington Olympia in October, focusing on all things Beauty Blogger, so obviously I'm a fan already.  There'll be workshops, inspiring talks and basically a couple of days where you're completely free to immerse yourself in the Beauty Blogging world, asking all the questions you've always wanted to and meeting some of you favourite bloggers, if you fancy it.  Plus, there's an a[...]

BeautyCon London

In just over a week's time, Kensington Olympia will transform into a beauty lover's dream, with some of the very best online talent descending on the West London venue for fans and fanatics alike to mingle, chat and take pictures to upload to Instagram.  Some of my very favourite beauty bloggers will be making an appearance - too many to mention here - so if you fancy seeing who's going to be there, have a look here - link. If you've seen[...]

No Smoking Day and How I Quit

Today is No Smoking Day, meaning there's lot of promotion and advice on how to go about kicking the habit.  Pre-Teddy, I used to smoke 25-30 fags a day and even though I kind of wanted to quit (I liked the idea of it, at least) I never really thought I would.  Then I found out I was pregnant and didn't want to risk anything horrible happening to my baby, so I quit.  That was almost 2 years ago and I haven't had a cigarette since. That isn'[...]
