Makeup Revolution Advent Calendar: My Thoughts

Makeup Revolution Advent Calendar: My Thoughts

This year I bought myself a beauty advent calendar. With so many on the market these days it was so hard to choose which one to buy, but since I have recently fallen in love with Makeup Revolution this was the obvious choice. I managed to get it on offer for about £25 at the end of November and I felt like a kid again! Now I can’t remember exactly what I got on each of the days but here…

How I Take My Blogmas Photos

How I Take My Blogmas Photos

Before embarking on blogmas I had no clue how I was going to make my pictures all Christmassy and really didn’t want to rely on stock images all month. Because of this I took to twitter and got some advice! Turns out it’s actually super easy to do and you don’t have to rely on having good flat lay skills (thank god!!). Props… You can make any photo festive with the right props! For someone who didn’t own any Christmas…

My future with The Body Shop

My future with The Body Shop

So I haven’t been with The Body Shop as an At Home Consultant for very long but I have some big plans! As opposed to just trying to flog individual items from the catalogue I am going to try and create ‘kits’. Each kit will come with a random makeup bag and look super super cute! So these kits are not completely set in stone but this is what I have been thinking so far! Makeup remover kit! It really shocks…

Whilst preparing for Christmas, buying mass decorations and…

Time To Be Real

Time To Be Real

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been telling everyone how excited I am to be spending Christmas alone this year and that I can’t wait to be able to spend the day without arguing with my uncaring parents. But the reality is I’m just deluding myself. Telling myself this story in order to reassure myself that I’m going to be ok because, in reality, I’m bricking it. The thought of being on my own on a day that is meant…

Winter Self Care

Winter Self Care

Winter can be such a miserable time of year. The weather is cold and dreary, the days are shorter and we all have a little less money thanks to Christmas. Because of all this, it is important we take a little bit of time out to look after ourselves! At least once a week I like to give myself a pamper evening of such. This can be something as simple as having a bath or doing the full works. So…

Yanto’s Pancake House

Yanto’s Pancake House

Christmas shopping can be seriously hungry work, so what is better than a little break in Gloucester’s newest pancake house! In the old offices of the Citizen newspaper on The Oxbode is where you can find this little delight! When entering the pancake house you are greeted by friendly staff who inform you to sit where you like. Me and my friend Mark chose a spot by the window. On the table, we found a selection of menus filled with delicious…
