My past week on Instagram in a nice little bite-size frame. Follow me here.
Can you believe it’s already 5 days into May? I was just getting used to the idea of April and then May came along and punched me in the face. Almost half way through the year and I feel older by the second. I moved home from uni this week and after much (and I really mean much) effort in packing two cars full of my belongings, I came back home where I realised nothing had a place in my room anymore. My clothes had nowhere to go, my shoes were lined up around the edge of the room and the makeup…. Ah the makeup. Makeup is my weakness, my guilty pleasure. No matter how many times my mum will try to convince me otherwise, there is always a need for nine shades of red lipstick right? Right?!
Having grossly misjudged my hoarding capabilities, I finally decided to sort out my
(life) makeup once and for all, the results of which are shown below. All I can say is, all hail Muji and Home Sense.
As I sit here in my tiny, cramped room at uni, surrounded by paperwork, chargers, leads, pens, makeup and everything else that can’t seem to make space for; I scroll through my Pinterest feed and see tons of amazing, organised and fresh-looking desks and workspaces in which I dream of requiring.

Back in February I was invited to attend Blogger’s Fashion Week as a VIB (Very Important Blogger!), hosted by Blogger’s Love… and I had a ball, I even had a drink (alcoholic!!!) which, anyone who knows me will know, I don’t drink. So anyway, there were tons of brands showcased at the event which was held at The Penthouse in Leicester Square, which by the way has incredible views over the whole of London!
Brands showcased included: BassBuds, Vita Liberata, Umberto Giannini, Sleep-In Rollers, Bravura, Hi Brow, Nadia Minkoff, Maro, My Tights, UUnique, The City Rack, Dukes, Rachel Black, Boomf and tons more.
This is my friend Hayley getting eyebrow extensions (???!!!) who knew?!
These were the personalised marshmallows created by Boomf. If you haven’t heard of them you should definitely check them out, you connect the site to your Instagram account and create marshmallows out of them! Such a perfect birthday gift!
First drink of the year so far…. steady.
Fun in the photobooth! Thank you to Blogger’s Love… for inviting me, I’ll be updating my blog with more posts on some of the brands that were featured and that I really liked over the next few days so stay tuned!
I’m loving the tough-girl-with-a-twist theme coming from Nicole Miller’s show this season. The all black colour palette with vibrant accents of prints with peacock elements gave a subtle contrast to the textures that included leathers, studs, chains and fur. The hair and makeup contrast also worked well with the strong eyes and contoured cheekbones paired with the softness of loosely pinned up hair. Warrior girl next door was the girl of the moment.

After a long bout of HUGE adoration across the pond, Mabelline’s Baby Lips range has finally made it’s way to the UK! Introducing six shades onto our market, Baby Lips offer “intense care and 8 hour hydration, and is nourishing for baby soft lips”. With an SPF of 20 and costing only £2.99 you can’t really go wrong with these. I’ve heard great things about them and plan on buying the shades “Pink Punch” and “Cherry Me” at the weekend!
