Pixi has been one of my favourite cosmetic and skincare companies this year and I was lucky enough to be gifted with lots of their products to try out. My latest package screamed rose walled gardens and fairytales. This beautiful box arrived in the post with a rose gold lock and key. It opened telling a fairytale story like in the books you read as a child and I was filled with so much excitement. Inside my box of goodies were two new skincare products for me to try, the Rose Caviar Essence and the Rose Flash Balm however it also included their new range of MatteLast Liquid Lipsticks in five different gorgeous shades. The Rose Caviar Essence is suitable for all skin types and claims to hydrate, brighten, nourish and soften the skin. The product contains capsules which contain fresh rose and flower oils. They recommend you use this… View Post

The past month has been manic. I’ve had mock exams, and the dreaded UCAS application to do as well as building portfolios for university interviews but I am now back as the Christmas holidays approach to focus on my blog for a little bit. Christmas is a lovely time of year but it can be expensive especially if you have a large family. No7 have got a huge range of offers on this Christmas to save you some money this season. No7 are known for having 3 for 2 on all their skincare range which is on pretty much all year round. This is a great way to save money this Christmas as the serums and moisturizers can make a lovely gift for someone. Another 3 for 2 which is held every year is the Boots Christmas 3 for 2 Mix and Match which contains No7 gift sets including both… View Post

Autumn fashion will forever be my favourite purely because of my love of coats and jackets at this time of year. Teddy bear coats have been extremely popular this season and they are available in pretty much everywhere. I thought I would spend a bit this time and invest in a winter coat that I fell in love with instantly when Topshop shared the coat over on their Twitter account.     This coat retails at £79 which is a reasonable price to pay for a lined, faux fur jacket however with the handy use of 20% student discount I got this gorgeous statement piece for around £63. The coat also comes in cream as well as this gorgeous dusky pink.     I have paired this jacket with some bargain items in my wardrobe. Primark has released some high-waisted jeans pretty much identical to the Topshop ones except they… View Post

Last week I received a signed copy of Jim Chapman’s new book #147things which was kindly sent to me by this amazing PR team. I’ve never written a book review on my blog before so for this to be sent to be was a lovely surprise and I couldn’t wait to start writing this post. #147things covers a vast range of topics, the book is claimed to cover everything from ‘black holes to belly buttons’, what more could you want from a book?     Throughout the book without giving too much away Jim talks about wide subjects such as the human brain, life and death, birth, childhood, adolescence, the human body, animals, fears, annoyances and grievances, myths, lies and legends and finally reasons to be cheerful. Personally I love the way the book is written, it is written with loads of asides (a term for when the author talks… View Post

London Fashion Week has been and gone and I am still obsessing over my favourite street style looks from the week. The array of colours shown throughout the week was incredible and I loved the diversity that every fashion week brings. Cords are in at the moment and I am totally loving this red and hot pink combination. High-waisted flared trousers are my go-to at the moment they can be styled up with boots/heels or dressed down with a pair of trainers of slip on pumps. Red has also been a very popular and on trend colour this season which I am loving but yet to venture into. I love the simplicity of the red polo neck knit top as it can be worn with some many other components.     The trench coat is a classic jacket which will never go out of fashion. It is so versatile and… View Post
