Happy Christmas!

I know I say this every year, but I cannot believe 2017 is almost over as it has flown by.  2017 has been a bit of a rubbish year for me (and many others apparently - it's been a weird year all round!) and I'm really looking forward to starting fresh in 2018 with renewed enthusiasm and hopefully a more steady and stable time. Thank you everyone who's been returning to my blog, keeping in touch on social media and generally reading my posts; it[...]

Nuffield Health Beauty Suite Promo for #NationalSpaWeek

Another quick heads-up as there's so much happening this week with an impending expiry date, so I'm trying to flag everything I think might be worth checking out.  It's National Spa Week at the mo - I'm slightly fatigued with all the national-such-and-such days and weeks, but National Spa Week is here to remind us of the benefits of taking some time out for a bit of pampering...as if we didn't know! The plus side is that there are lots of spas an[...]

Merry Christmas!! Five Things I Can’t Wait to Do

I have been fantasising about this point in time for literally weeks and weeks, and now it's finally here! I'm giving myself a week or so off to really indulge in some R&R and prioritise all the things I want to do over the things I have to do.  As I've been waiting for this time off for a little while, I've had time to plan out a few things that I'm keen to get on with, so I thought I'd share them with you: Watch Rubbish TV It's a lame one[...]

An Ode to Seche Vite

Occasionally there are products that I just cannot get enough of; I know I've written about them before, but I want to write about them again, so I'm going to give them their very own ode...although not in the literal sense as I'm not sure I can put together a decent poem about a top coat. Still, what I can do is say that if you haven't tried Seche Vite and you paint your nails, you need to get yourself a bottle as you will never look back.[...]

Valentine’s Ideas: Flowers by Post

Ahhh flowers.  I used to receive them all the time when I was younger, yet I haven't received them for quite some time (*sigh*) up until recently when Debenhams very kindly sent me a bouquet to showcase their Valentine's offerings.  Just to clarify, I don't think Debenhams and I are going to be romantically linked anytime soon, but when it comes to Valentine's, I have to take what I can get. The flowers picture are kind of what I'd call[...]

Valentine’s Ideas: Soapsmith Step into London Collection

Yeah, it's that time of the year again, when all the smug couples become even more smug with their smug gifts and smug romance.  So. Much. Smug.  Obviously I'm not bitter at all and I'm very happy for them.  And their smug.  This year I've decided to offer a helping hand for anyone who doesn't know what to buy for Valentine's by putting together a few post ideas, some of which are traditional and others which will give you a bit of present-buy[...]

InPost #ShareTheBeauty Pass the Parcel

When InPost got in touch with me to see if I'd be interested in spending £200 on beauty products to send to another beauty blogger, whilst also having a beauty blogger spend the same amount on me, I had to do it really, didn't I? I quickly realised that I take just as much pleasure from buying make-up for other people as I do from buying it for myself, so it seems I just like to buy make-up! I was given Hayley at Tea Party Beauty to buy for, s[...]

Merry Christmas!

Merry, happy Christmas you lovely, lovely lot! This time tomorrow I'll be dressing Teddy, kicking and screaming, in an outfit that will make him look like a giant Christmas Pudding (it'll go on Instagram) before heading over to my mum's to start eating my entire body weight in unhealthy nibbles.  It's all about Teddy tomorrow, so we'll mostly be watching him open presents all day whilst eating, and eating, and eating, and eating.  I'll also be[...]

Don’t Panic! Last Minute Online Gift Ideas

As of last year, Teddy's first Christmas, our family have made the policy that we don't buy anything for anyone other than Teddy at Christmas, meaning we don't have a lot to worry about when it comes to forgetting presents.  Christmas is pretty stressful as it is, yet it can be made much worse when you realise you've forgotten a present for someone, so I thought I'd put together a few ideas on things you can purchase as last minute gifts, most of[...]
