STUCK FOR INSPIRIATION ON NYE? | Beauty ideas for your night

Its New Years Eve! Blooming hell, where did this year go? I swear it was summer last week... or what England had of it anyway. Hopefully 2016 is a year that brings everyone all the things they hope for and here's to the future! But I honestly hate New Years Eve. Its definitely one of my least favourite days of the whole year because I am ALWAYS struggling to make the right plans and to be with the right people - plus I HAVE TO PLAN AN OUTFIT. Ugh.

2015 BINGEWORTHY SHOWS | My Netflix top picks

(photo credit goes to

Ah Netflix, what would I do without you? I'd probably be doing something productive and actually being a somewhat normally functioning human being, but that is besides the point.

This past year, I've had a lot of time to binge watch so many shows that are on Netflix this year. I've seen so many new things and tried shows I'd never thought I'd be interested in. With all that in mind, I'm going to give you my top 5 binge worthy Netflix TV series.

ALL ABOUT CHRISTMAS | The Christmas tag

I can't believe its Christmas Eve! This year has flown by and today is my last day of Blogmas, which I found highly enjoyable for my first month of blogging! I managed to stick it out and post everyday and I never thought I'd make it past the first week but I pulled through and I learnt a lot about blogging along the way.

December 23, 2015


2015 has been a pretty okay year, but I'm happy to see the end of it. 2016 is the year where I've set myself some pretty big goals blog-wise and life-wise and I'm making this post to remind myself of where I started and where I end up when I check back again in a years time! So without further ado, lets take a look at what I want from my 2016.

LETS GO BACK IN TIME | A review of my 2015

(warning: this post is wordy as heck. TW: depression)

2015 has been quite the journey for me. I've gained some amazing friends and I've removed toxic ones. To be fair, when I decided to write this post, I was hesitant because I didn't do anything particularly amazing. I didn't travel abroad, I didn't donate a bunch of money to charity, I didn't even start a university course.

THE BOXING DAY BLUES | How to cope with post holiday sadness

(trigger warning - depression)

Do you feel lonely and/or sad around Christmas? You aren't alone in that. Depression rates, whether clinical or brought on by a sudden loss of any sort, sky rocket in the festive month.

Depression is a mental condition where you experience intense emotions like sadness, hopelessness and loneliness. It is made worse at this time of month usually by stress and financial worries and can  be devastating to some when the wave of depression washes over them. 
So with all that, I wanted to share with you some tips on how to try to keep your mood up around this festive time - after all it is the season to be jolly, right?

WANT SOME ICE WITH THAT? | Christmas cocktails

 (photo credit goes to The Latin Kitchen)

If you know me in real life, you would know that I am a massive fan of cocktails and trying to make them. With money being tight this year, I haven't had the chance to splash my money on fancy alcoholic drinks and mixers to create my own exquisite drinks that taste as good as they look.

CHRISTMAS SPIRIT | Yog Nog bath bomb review

If you haven't already noticed, I love bath bombs. So when my boyfriend told me he was going to Meadowhall (a big shopping centre in Sheffield), I immediately begged him to pick me up a bath bomb of his choice from Lush, as long as it was Christmas themed - I am doing Blogmas after all. So he came back with the Yog Nog Bath Bomb

CRUELTY FREE | A gift guide for vegans

This year, one of my closest friends decided to turn vegan. She was brought up to be a vegetarian by her mother and at the age of 14 she decided to try meat for the first time and for a while she enjoyed it. Now at the age of 19, she made to change to go fully vegan - the complete opposite of what she was for the past five years. I am personally not a vegan, but I think what she did and what she is doing is amazing. Its definitely changed my outlook on life and has made me think a lot more about what I eat and what I buy.

JINGLE BELLS JINGLE BELLS | My Christmas playlist

 What is Christmas without the music that goes with it? It definitely makes me feel a lot more in the mood for Christmas dinner and a glass - or three - of Baileys. Unless of course you work in retail, where you've probably overdosed on Mariah Carey at this point.

(photo credit goes to H&M, PLT, Boohoo, Tesco and Next)

New Years Eve is probably the one night where everyone wants to go out and drink, dance and have a fabulous night to welcome in the next year. Sometimes though, picking out a dress is one of the hardest parts of sorting that night out. I know I've become completely stressed out by not knowing what to wear. So I've trawled the internet to find some of my top dress picks for you to shimmy in on New Years Eve.

SANTA BABY | Lush lip scrub review

'Santa baby, hurry down the chimney tonight♫'

For the past two weeks, I've been using this little Lush lip scrub on my lips. As it's winter and the weather is miserable and cold, they've gotten so dry and flaky and plain horrible, and pair that with my love for matte lipsticks, my lips are in some serious need of TLC.

TRAVELLING TO SPACE | Intergalactic bath bomb review

I'm putting this out here now - I'm not the first blogger to review this gorgeous Lush bath bomb, and I certainly won't be the last. The 'Intergalactic' bath bomb is a treat for the eyes and the skin and I am absolutely head over heels for it. When I went to Lush for a mini haul, I ran straight to this one as it is the one bath bomb I have been longing for since forever.

Buying gifts for the guys in your life can sometimes be difficult. You ask them what they want and they give you a blank stare and say 'I don't know' or 'I don't need anything'. Of course this isn't the answer you want to hear, so you're left stumped on what to get them. Here I've picked a few items that I know the boys/men/etc in my life would want, so maybe the ones in yours do too!

FATHER BLISSMAS | Bath bomb review

Hey guys! Today I'm giving you a glimpse into what a great little bath bomb this guy turned out to be. You can grab this bomb from Bomb Cosmetics, who have made him especially to go in to a bath set. To use the 'Father Blissmas' bath bomb, just drop him in to your bath and watch him fizz up and create a gorgeous, bright pink and white froth. Once settled, the white froth will clear and you will be left with a lovely pink with bits of shimmer in the water.

144 SHADES OF FUN | Make Up Revolution 2016 palette review

Hello everyone! First of all, I should mention that I absolutely love eyeshadow and experimenting with colours. Applying eyeshadow has got to be my favourite part of my make-up routine because you can be so creative with your style and colour combinations. So of course when I saw that Make Up Revolution had brought out a 2016 palette that contained 144 different shadows, I just had to get my hands on it!
