    Pre-Christmas Checklist | Blogmas Day 11

    Christmas is creeping up on us at an alarming rate and with just 2 weeks to go it’s time to be thinking about those last minute preparations that somebody always forgets. This year I’m feeling reasonably organised, I’ve wrapped all my presents and written most of my cards so hopefully there will be no last minute present buying for me! So here’s a little reminder of some things you might still have left to do! Wrap all your presents Some people will already have everything wrapped, others will leave it all until Christmas Eve, each to there own. I sit firmly in the first camp, me and Amy sat and…

    3 New Brands I’ve Discovered This Year | Blogmas Day 10

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I am a creature of habit, I’ve got my beauty and skincare regime down and I rarely alter it or add new items. However this year a few new brands have sneaked into my routine and indeed my blog posts. I thought that for Blogmas day 10 I’d do a roundup of my favourite brands I’ve discovered this year. First up is a haircare brand, for the second half of the year I’ve been loving the Maui Moisture Haircare range. It’s free from parabens, Silicones, sulphates etc etc the list goes on and it’s also vegan! I love the Coconut Milk…

    Cruelty-Free Gift Guide | Blogmas Day 8

    You may have picked up in a few of my blog posts that I try buy as many cruelty-free cosmetics and toiletries as I can rather than items which have been tested on animals. There are also plenty of people who are vegetarian or vegan so I thought it would be quite nice to put together a cruelty-free gift guide to help you buy for the animal lover in your life. First up, and this has got to be the most obvious one, is Lush. You will know by my hauls that I adore all of their products, there really is something for everyone whether it be an individual bath…

    An Evening With Neal’s Yard Remedies | Blogmas Day 7

    Hello! We’ve made it to Day 7 a.k.a a full week of Blogmas! I won’t lie I know what day of Blogmas it is but I’ve actually lost track of what day of the week it is, I’ve been going with Thursday for the past 2 days. Anyway moving on, last night (which was Wednesday btw) I went for a lovely evening at the new Neal’s Yard Remedies store which has recently opened in Meadowhall. Myself and a few other bloggers went to learn a bit more about the store and their products whilst enjoying a few nibbles and drinks. The store was absolutely beautiful and it smells AMAZING!! The…

    A Week in Outfits: No Jeans Edition | Blogmas Day 4

    Happy Monday people, today for Blogmas I thought I’d share with you a week in outfits. I’ve done one of these before but you my remember it was mostly jeans and a jumper as I’m not very adventurous. So this time I thought I’d attempt a no jeans edition- no jeans for a whole week!! Anyone that knows me will be aware I live in my jeans and comfy knitwear so this was sure to be a task and I managed to pick the coldest week of the year so far to attempt this little fashion challenge. However in an attempt to be adventurous I’ve accidentally worn the same style…
