OUT WITH THE GOLD IN WITH THE SILVER

Saturday, 27 February 2016


If you'd have told me this time last year, I'd be posting about my love of silver, I would definitely have laughed in your face. I used to loathe silver hardware - I was all about the gold. I still really like gold, but there's something about silver and black and white that's really got me going at the moment. It also might have something to do with the fact that silver looks so good with my all time favourite colour, lilac. I thought I'd show you my fave pieces, and share the love. If you want to freshen up your wardrobe for spring and add a little sparkle, definitely consider adding silver!

H&M HOMEWARE HAUL

Monday, 22 February 2016


After hosting a Twitter chat about homeware, it seems I got a little spendy spendy on the H&M website. I've told myself it's fine, since I've got two rooms (uni & home) and you guys love home stuff. Right? Plus it all photographs together really nicely. I definitely didn't browse the website and colour code my basket hoping they'd all look nice together in a blog picture. Nope. Anyway, here's what I got!

NYX LIP COLLECTION & SWATCHES

Tuesday, 16 February 2016


Move over Mac, Nyx is now officially my favourite lipstick brand. They're affordable, long wearing and come in a huge variety of colours and formulas. The only downside for us UK folk is that they're not available in many shops, so we have to rely on ordering online...which with lipsticks, is basically like ordering with your eyes shut. The little cartoon paint splurge of the colour NEVER SHOWS THE ACTUAL COLOUR. Never. So that's why today I'm going to be showing you my little collection, including lip swatches, so you can see how they look on the lips!

FREE ADVERTISING

Sunday, 14 February 2016


A little change in post type today - I'm going to be explaining my free advertising system, starting in March! I think advertising blogs on blogs is a really great way to keep the community together and support smaller bloggers. I definitely don't have a huge audience, but it's growing consistently, so I thought it was about time I gave something back!

UNFAVOURITES #1

Saturday, 13 February 2016


Hey loves! Bit of a negative post for you here today...an unfavourites! I wanted to do a little something different to the usual monthly favourites, so I thought I'd start an unfavourites series. I try a lot of new products, and shock horror...I don't actually like them all! Some of these might work really well for you, but personally, they kinda suck. 

VALENTINE'S DAY AFFORDABLE GIFT GUIDE

Friday, 5 February 2016


Okay, okay. I'm using the term 'gift guide' pretty loosely. This post is essentially just the random mushy Valentine's Day crap I've bought for my boyfriend this year. But I asked if you guys wanted to see it, and everyone said yes, so here we go! And on the plus side, it all photographs really well

USING SNAPCHAT TO INCREASE BLOG TRAFFIC | ADVICE

Tuesday, 2 February 2016


Hello lovelies and welcome to February! I thought I'd kick this month off with an advice post - January was the month where I found my blogging feet, and decided on the type of style best reflected me, so this month is one where I'll focus on producing content that I'm proud of and that you want to see! If you fancy connecting with me, collaborating, or even asking for a type of post, you can find me constantly on Twitter here

Now, on to the post. It's no secret that most of us bloggers are social media mavens - we're all over Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest...you name it, we've probably tried to turn it into a blogging platform. But one app we're neglecting at the moment is Snapchat. You might think it's for the big time vloggers, or for sending mugshots to your friends, but there's so much more to the app that can be useful for us and our traffic!
