Monthly Favourires | April

How are we quarter of the way through the year already?! Normally around this time of year, I would be replacing some of my makeup for summer colours ready for my awesome tan… instead I am restocking my winter colour foundation and pulling on the hoodies and scarves to keep warm. Then in try British style, it snows,and five minutes later its glorious sunshine! I love this country!

What is the cost of my daily face?

The time to be an adult has fallen upon me (sob) and Gareth & I need to buy a house! First, I need a whack of cash for a deposit, and that means some serious saving. I find myself scraping through every month, spending the last week in the run up to pay day counting my coppers asking myself "where does all of my money go?" One look at my bank statement and its very clear; makeup and clothes.  Oops.

This got me thinking, how do I spend so much and have such a little makeup collection? Then I started adding up the cost of things I use daily... and purchase every few months.

Homeware Haul | B&M

As a serious shopaholic, it's rare to find a shop in town that I haven't been to. After spending so much time at home recently due to being poorly, I finally found the time to have a clear out and make some space in my bedroom. My room is Mums old office, so the hard wood flooring can be quite chilly on my tootsies. I wanted... no, needed a rug!

My favourite shopping partner, Mum, knew she'd seen a rug shop somewhere over by Sainsbury's. Feeling a little deflated after finding an empty warehouse, we turned back to stumble upon B&M. Having heard a few things, I'd built up the assumption that it was a place to buy cheap tack. How wrong was I! Its big brands at small prices... and I bought more than just a rug! (Insert monkey covering eyes emoji here!) Here are a few things I bought that add a little character to my room:

Grey Chenille Rug from The Natural Collection £14.99
I don't have much floor space in my room, so this rug is the perfect size to fill the main gap.

We Went To The Zoo

As soon as the sun appears in the UK, we head straight outside to make the most of it! The first words that Gareth said to me this morning were "lets go to the zoo!". Living in the Cotswolds has many perks, one of them being that we are only 45 minutes away from the Cotswold Wildlife Park.

We seemed to be in luck today, with the weather, the traffic, and all of the animals! Every time we got to a different animal they'd either start to play or get in the perfect position for a photo! We even witnessed feeding time for the 12ft anacondas, which I'll admit made my skin crawl!
Check out my snaps!

Monthly Favorites | March

This post marks the start of my first 'series' on the blog... My Montly Favourites! Below you will find a selection of things I have been loving this month!

March is almost over, and Spring is here... Yippee! While I love the winter, cold weather, Christmas and high neck jumpers , nothing quite excites me like Spring. The weather (eventually) starts getting warmer, we wear less layers and pastel colours are everywhere! As a month, its been a bit of a weird one. I started my blog, uploaded my first YouTube video & was poorly for almost a fortnight. I have eaten so much chocolate and ice-cream I may explode though I think I can get away with using Easter as an excuse for why my jeans are too tight! Maybe I should have featured creme eggs as one of my favourites! Damn...

The TMI Tag

Having been bed bound since Friday, I have either been sleeping, watching Netflix, or working on my blog & YouTube channel. Whilst trailing through BlogLovin' looking at fellow bloggers sites, I came across Sian (The English Everygirl) and saw that along with some great reads, she had recently submitted a blog post titled 'The TMI tag'. 

Back in the day, we would fill out questionnaires like this on Bebo, or Facebook, then tag our BFF's to do the same. Feeling a little nostalgic, I thought I would give it a go, and let you all nosey in on some personal details..

1. What are you wearing? My disney PJs. I've been in bed with tonsillitis for the last 4 days. 

2. Ever been in love? I fell in love at 12 years old and at 22 I am still in love with the same person, my future husband. 

3. Ever had a terrible breakup? Kinda, but it ended up all good in the end! 

4. How tall are you? 5" and a half (don't forget the half!)

5. How much do you weigh? 21,120 teabags.

Review | Aurelia Probiotic Skincare: Miracle Cleanser

If you google 'Probiotics' you will discover that they are live, good bacteria with various health benefits. I myself had no clue what they were exactly, thinking they were mostly found in yoghurt!

PLL - What Do I Do Now That Season 6 Is Over?!

As a complete Pretty Little Liars addict, I am now feeling a little lost after the Season 6 Finale. And what a finale it was! The last episode made up for what I thought was a slow half season, and now we have to wait months for Season 7 to start!

MyShowcase: At-Home Beauty Shopping Experience

How would you like to be able to shop for beauty products from the comfort of your own sofa? Sounds fab I know!

In the past, I have found that buying beauty products can often be quite daunting. I would buy my products from either the high-street stores or online, and then search on YouTube for hints on how to use these products to make sure I got the best out of them. I'd pray that I had bought the right colour foundation, and hope that I'd not wasted money on cleaners, toners and moisturisers that would cause reactions with my sensitive skin.

I Found My Big Girl Pants!

Happy Monday Lovelies!

Over the weekend, I found my big girl pants, put them on & set up the blog you see before you! As a complete beauty product junkie, I have wanted to do this for a while, but my inner technophobe caused me to chicken out every time I loaded Blogger and clicked 'create'. A recent decision to work with a beauty/skincare supplier and a particular video uploaded by my favourite YouTuber has given me the push I needed to JUST DO IT! The products I have been discovering need to be shared with the world!
