No More Smudging! – L’Oréal Beauty Tubes Mascara

November 13, 2016 Review

It isn’t very often that I get this excited about a beauty product. I have suffered from smudgy mascara for as long as I’ve been wearing it. Following beauty guru’s advice, I have purchased countless mascaras from Rimmel to Dior all with the promise of being un-smudgeable whilst still providing length and volume. Each and every time I am let down with transfer from my lashes to my lids and a ‘panda effect’ beneath. I have actually never been brave enoughRead More

Links of London -A Gift Idea for Her

November 11, 2016 Review, Uncategorized

My boyfriend is appalling at buying presents. I found this out relatively early into our relationship when he took me to buy my own Christmas presents a week before the big day, as it was just all too confusing for him (despite me having written a very specific list on his request). As a result, I  purchased myself some glittery Lush bath bombs and some intensely dark chocolate from Hotel Chocolat and left feeling a bit cheated out of the magicRead More

Parkin – Gluten and Dairy Free

November 8, 2016 Recipe

There are certain recipes that I read and think to myself “that would kill me”, such as macaroni cheese and butter shortbread. When my dad requested that we make parkin cake for our bonfire celebrations I had one of those moments. Not one to be beaten I decided to treat this recipe as though I had a normal digestive system, simply substituting in my usual Vitalite for butter and gluten free versions of the flour and oats. I have to say thatRead More

Apple Crumble – The Healthier Way

November 3, 2016 Recipe

At this beautiful autumnal time of year, nothing beats the smell of apples and cinnamon. Coming home to the countryside from London left me in no doubt that this was one of my favourite times of the year, as the train sped from city to open pasture I watched as the countryside seemed to change before my eyes into a red and golden paradise. Pulling up at my childhood home the first thing to greet me was my bouncing ball of tawnyRead More

LALALAB – A Review and How To

October 29, 2016 Review, Uncategorized

Earlier this year I became one of many to purchase an instant camera, specifically the Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 (review soon). They were everywhere! For the first time at festivals along with iPhones in the air, there was also the unmistakable click and whirr of the instant camera, taking Instagram to a whole new level. I love my instant camera but I didn’t love the cost of the film or my poor ability to capture a great shot. I’d say that aroundRead More

Pai Skincare – Review

October 12, 2016 Review

Skincare has been the bane of my existence from puberty onwards. Waking up one morning to a face full of spots and skin that couldn’t decide whether to flake off or become an oily mess meant that the days of bare faced goodness had gone. I have tried so many skincare brands from high street to high-end and always ended up back at square one. Although my skin has matured a little over the past 10 years and for theRead More

The Great British Summer

September 26, 2016 Uncategorized

We’re pretty hard on Summer here in England and I thought it about time to put foreword the 10 reasons why I love it, just the way it is. SURPRISE – Our Summer never lets us get bored of all that hot weather, she’s always on hand to sprinkle some entertainment or blow our socks off when we least expect it. CHARACTER BUILDING – My parents ensured that I got to go to the beach, even if it was raining…andRead More

Highgate Cemetery

September 20, 2016 Review

Otium, Otii –  At peace, leisure A little history:  The cemetery was initially established in 1839 by a private company as an answer to those seeking to bury their dead outside of church grounds and according to their own rites. To ensure that the upper classes were tempted away from the convenience of burying their loved ones at local churches the cemetery set out to be a place of architectural splendour and beauty.  However this profit making situation soon encountered aRead More
