Those Beauty Holiday Staples

Guess who goes on holiday tomorrow?


After the tragic month that May turned out to be, I’m very much looking forward to disappearing for a good week or so to enjoy time in the sun with the Mr.

Of course, I’m semi-packed already and seeing as we have a 4:00am wake up call tomorrow, I’ll be doing zero makeup for the airport / flight but I still plan on making myself look semi-decent for our evenings out.

My In-Flight Essentials

Thursday, please hurry up.

With all that has gone on in the past month or so, I need this holiday more than ever. If you’re new to my blog (hi, hello, welcome), you may not know that I am heading to Crete on Thursday with the Mr.

When it comes to trips, I’m very organised in terms of packing and having a rough idea of where I’d like to visit next. Recently, I have seen many bloggers purchasing a backpack on EBay for an absolute steal of £13 (John Lewis sell them for £80+), but when I spotted this gorgeous “dark mole” backpack in H&M last month, I knew that it would be perfect to travel with.

6 Summer Holidays Reads

This time next week, I’ll be in Crete.

We only have four more days lefts in work before we jet off bright and early on Thursday morning and I can not wait.

On a weekly basis, I’m very surprised at how many people ask me for book recommendations but now that the summer holidays are creeping up on us, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to share six book suggestions with you all.

Celebrate Fathers Day With bakerdays

Am I living the blogging dream by writing about cake?


You may know that I often collaborate with bakerdays who are a company who send a range of personalised cakes through your letter box for any occasion whether it’s a birthday, wishing someone good luck, sending your congratulations to a friend or allowing your Dad to eat all the cake for Fathers Day.

Spoiler: He didn’t eat all the cake. We shared.

Fathers Day (01)

Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart


Published: 5th September 2017
Publisher: Hot Key Books
Pages: 272


Imogen is a runaway heiress, an orphan, a cook and a cheat. Jule is a fighter, a social chameleon and an athlete. An intense friendship. A disappearance. A murder, or maybe two. A bad romance, or maybe three. Blunt objects, disguises, blood and chocolate. The American dream, superheroes, spies and villains. A girl who refuses to give people what they want from her. A girl who refuses to be the person she once was.

The Mother’s Secret by Clare Swatman


Published: 22nd February 2018

Sisters Kate and Georgie have always shared a close bond. While Kate enjoyed the freedoms of youth, Georgie remained at home. But now Georgie is grown up, it’s time she started exploring. Their mother Jan loves her daughters with all her heart. So what if she kept them out of sight when they were young? She just cared for them so much. She wanted to protect them. Maybe there was another reason for Jan’s protective behaviour? If they ventured too far afield, it might destroy the façade of their childhood. This family’s about to discover that while lies can cause pain, the truth could destroy them all.

The Slogan T-Shirt Trend

I’m not one to follow fashion trends.

Since being a teenager, I’ve worn what I’ve wanted to wear, I’ve dealt with the girls who mocked my choices but I’ve always stayed true to my own fashion style.

However, I have 100% jumped on the trend that is slogan t-shirts and it is safe to say that New Look have well and truly been slaying the game for the past few months.

The May Catch Up

It has been a month since I typed out one of these catch up posts.

If you’re new to my blog (hi, hello, welcome), these used to be a regular occurrence every single Sunday but since the middle of March, they’ve taken a back seat as they were beginning to feel force and there was a lot of pressure to create this big, juicy catch up but in reality, I just wasn’t in the mood to write them weekly.

Consider this your all things end of April and 99% of May catch up.
