Monthly Favourites | August

Monthly Favourites | August

It's monthly favourites time again. Christmas is slowly starting to appear throughout the retail world which is really freaking me out as it doesn't seem like 5 mins since i was last flapping around buying presents for everyone. Anyways, i don't have all that many favourites this month as I've really been sticking to a routine and using the same products. So if you want to know what I've been loving this month, keep reading!


Review | Irresistible Me Hair Extensions

Review | Irresistible Me Hair Extensions

Review | Irresistible Me Hair Extensions

I wanted to delve into the world of hair extensions for the longest time; I've tried really cheap options but never really know enough about them to really invest in a set. So when i was contacted by a really lovely lady from Irresistible Me, i was absolutely over the moon to be given the opportunity to try a set.

Learning to Sew #2 | Cushion Covers, Make Up Bag & Refashioning

Learning to Sew #2 | Cushion Covers, Make Up Bag & Refashioning

If you read my last Learning to Sew post (here) you'll know that I've been setting myself a project a month to help me with learning to sew. Last month was a write off as i was away on holiday and i didn't get chance to pick up some supplies - this month however, i set myself the challenge of making myself some cushion covers ready for the autumn time. I also managed to make and alter a few other things too.

Review | Estee Lauder Deluxe All Over Face Compact

Review | Estee Lauder Deluxe All Over Face Compact

I almost didn't buy this product; i got the Estee Lauder Deluxe All Over Face Compact from the car boot sale (see here) a few weeks ago for £4 and at first i walked away, the woman selling it was a bit rude and i didn't want to give her the satisfaction of buying something. However, i just couldn't stop thinking about it so i caved and picked it up - and I'm so glad i did.

Review | BRYT Skincare

Review | BRYT Skincare

When it comes to skincare it's very rare that i stick to a proper routine; i want something quick and easy otherwise i start to get bored and started skipping steps. I was contacted by a really lovely lady, asking me if I'd like to try out some skincare products from BRYT, I'd never heard of this brand but i fell in love with the packaging - just look at it, and i couldn't resist giving them a try.

Sewing Tutorial | DIY Make Up Bag

Sewing | DIY Make Up Bag

If you've been reading my blog for a little while you'll know that I've decided that i want to learn how to sew and each month I'm setting myself different projects. I also have a monthly series (see here) dedicated to the process, showing you all the different things that i create. 

Alongside the Learning to Sew series, I've decided that I'm going to do individual posts showing you how I've created something. One of the projects i set myself for this month was to try and make myself a little make up bag. I'm a total beginner when it comes to sewing and this took me about 1-2 hours to complete.

Review | Pearl Drops Lasting Flawless White Toothpolish

Review | Pearl Drops Lasting Flawless White Toothpolish

Like most people I'm sure I'd love to have a set of pearly whites; I have tried so many different toothpastes and whitening kits that claim to whiten the teeth and give impressive results, all of which very rarely do what they claim to do. Pearl Drops is brand I've used many times before so when i discovered their newest release the Pearl Drops Lasting Flawless White Toothpolish*, i really wanted to try it out.

Review | Smashbox Step By Step Contour Kit

Review | Smashbox Step By Step Contour Kit

I love to contour; it's something i only really do in my routine if I'm making more of an effort but i love how it can really transform your entire face. Contouring is not something I've mastered so i love trialling out different contour product to see which works best for me. The latest addition to my collection is the Smashbox Step By Step Contour Kit.

Love Me Tender | Liverpool Empire

Love Me Tender | Liverpool Empire

I went to the theatre last night to watch Love Me Tender; other than the fact it used Elvis Presley's music for the soundtrack, i had absolutely no idea what the story was about or what to expect.

Wishlist | Beauty, Interior & More

Wishlist | Beauty, Interior & More

I was a bit stuck for a post idea today; usually i post my Car Boot Sale Hauls on Sundays but i only got two things and i didn't think it justified a full post. So instead, i thought I'd do a wish list - i don't normally do these but there is a few things that I'd really like to get my hands on.

Recently Read #6

Recently Read #6

I'm rather proud of myself for how much reading I've done lately. I've read 7 books within the last 3 months and whilst that may not be much for some, it's more than normal for me. I've been making more of a effort to take the time to sit down and read and it's definitely paying off. If you'd like to keep up to date with what books I'm reading, feel free to add me on goodreads.

My TV Show Recommendations #2

My TV Show Recommendations #2

My last TV Show Recommendations post (here) seemed to go down pretty well so i thought I'd do another, i may even turn it into a little series as I'm forever watching a TV series of some kind and i know just how frustrating it can be when you don't know what TV show to start, so maybe i can help.
