If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that I’m no stranger to Collection Cosmetics and in particular, their lipsticks.
I did a post about their Taffeta Bloom lipstick back in 2016 (which you’ll see later on in the post) and honestly, they’re my favourite drugstore lipstick.

It is only after her mother’s death that Luna begins to discover her secrets. While in New York to settle the estate, something impossible happens to Luna. She finds herself in 1977, face to face with her mother as a young woman, in the week that changed her life forever. If time can be turned back, can it also be rewritten? Luna becomes convinced she can save her mother from the moment that will eventually drive her to suicide. But in doing anything – everything – to save her mother’s life, will Luna have to sacrifice her own?
Does anyone else write a to-do list and it turns out to be ridiculously long?
That’s my life right now.
The craziness has only just begun…
Date night is one of my favourite nights with Mike.
Essentially, it means going to a restaurant and not reaching for our phones.
At the beginning of May, Yee Rah got in touch with me and asked if I’d like to review their new menu. I used to eat there quite a bit during my third year at University but I haven’t been in about five years.

When a stranger asks Jo Blackmore for a lift she says yes, then swiftly wishes she hadn’t. The stranger knows Jo’s name, she knows her husband Max and she’s got a glove belonging to Jo’s two year old daughter Elise. What begins with a subtle threat swiftly turns into a nightmare as no one believes that Elise is in danger. But Jo knows there’s only one way to keep her child safe – RUN.
Fun fact: I’m not a bride and I’m nowhere near one.
BUT, when I was in TKMaxx a few weeks ago, I spotted the Essie Bridal 2016 Collection for £4.99 and well, I just had to pick it up.
Another fun fact: TKMaxx is flipping brilliant for beauty bargains.
I wanted to start off today’s post by saying thank you.
After I briefly mentioned that I was starting a new job, you all flooded me with congratulations tweets, blog comments, Instagram comments and even brands sent me emails. I’m overwhelmed and feel very supported.
I didn’t go into a lot of detail about my new role but essentially, I’ll be working in Marketing for the same company that my Mum works for (no travel expense for me!) and right now, we’re giving it three months before seeing how my new boss likes my style and how I feel about working there.
It’s all rather exciting and I start on Thursday, so wish me luck!
“Homeware is my weakness.”
Said by every blogger on the planet.
We can’t help it. We can’t help buying it. They make great props.
Especially when the products are long lasting, like the ones from Feather & Black.
When their lovely PR team got in touch and asked if I’d like to review some of their pieces, I took a look on their website and was instantly in love with pretty much every single item.
And then they said I could choose what I wanted.
Is this real life? Is this a fantasy?
10 points to Gryffindor if you can name that song.

When Lewis Harley has a health scare in his early forties, he takes it as a wake-up call. So he and his wife Charlotte leave behind life in the fast lane and Lewis opens the antique shop he has dreamed of. Bonnie Brookland was brought up in the antiques trade and now works for the man who bought out her father’s business, but she isn’t happy there. So when she walks into Lew’s shop, she knows this is the place for her. As Bonnie and Lew start to work together, they soon realise that there is more to their relationship than either thought. But Bonnie is trapped in an unhappy marriage, and Lew and Charlotte have more problems than they care to admit. Each has secrets in their past which are about to be uncovered. Can they find the happiness they both deserve?
My makeup very rarely changes.
I have the same day-to-day look, but I change the products up every now and then.
A few weeks ago, I was raiding my Mum’s beauty stash (as you do) and I came across this Clinique blush and seeing as she very rarely uses it, she kindly passed it onto me.
Naturally, I’m writing a blog post about it.
