You may have noticed recently - or not - that I've been quite absent on my blog recently, i took an unplanned break.

A Few Days in Scotland

A Little Trip to... Scotland

I recently went on a little trip to Scotland visiting family. I say little but until you actually drive from one side to the other you don't realise just how bloody big Scotland is. We stayed in Whitehills, a quaint little coastal town with very little there but it was absolutely beautiful nonetheless - somewhere i could easily picture myself retiring too when im older. Rather than a travel diary type post, i decided im just going to share a few photos with you as i didn't take very many - mostly, the scenic views we encountered on our daily walks which were beautiful - we even saw dolphins swimming along the coast.

Natural Collection #3 | New Releases

Natural Collection #3 | New Releases

The latest Natural Collection Beauty Box arrived the other week and i was very excited by its contents; for the past two boxes there has been a set theme but this time around the box was filled with some of Natural Collections new releases - their new brow range and their new instant glow range.

KISS Nails, Lashes & imPRESS Manicures

Kiss False Lashes and Nails

There is nothing i love more than to finish a full face of make up with some false lashes and a nice set of nails. I recently saw a tweet from KISS offering the opportunity to review some of their lashes, nails and imPRESS nails, so i decided to try my luck and a few weeks later a pretty impressive package landed on my door.

My 4 Must Read Books

My 4 Must Read Books

I enjoy reading and whilst i don't do it half as much as i wish i did, over the years there is a select few that are stood out for me, that everyone must read - or at least that i think everyone should read.

Review | Inglot Matte Lipstick

Review | Inglot Matte Lipstick

Inglot is not easy to get hold of here in the UK, or if it is I've not quite found an easy way to get my hands on it. When my family went away a few months ago, my sister very kindly bought me my very first Inglot product - the Inglot Matte Lipstick in the shade 419.

My Travel Make Up

My Travel Make Up

I'm heading to Scotland in the morning to visit family (hello, 8 hour drive), i've never been to Scotland before so i'm looking forward to see what it's like and to see some of my family too. As we're only going for 5 days, i'm trying to be as minimal as possible with my packing. I've had a bit of hard time deciding on which products i wanted to take but i think i've narrowed it down to the perfect amount with options too.

Review | Sleek Corrector and Concealer Kit

A few weeks ago Sleek had a 2 for £10 offer on so along with their beautiful Solstice Highlighting Palette (Review here), i also picked up the Sleek Corrector and Concealer Kit.

My Favourite Make Up Brushes

My Favourite Make Up Brushes

I talk about lots of make up products here on my blog but i don't always mention my make up brushes much - I've gathered a little bit of a collection over the past few years so i thought I'd share with you a few of my favourites.

Slimming World #3 | Recovery, Treats and My First Gain

Slimming World #3 | Recovery, Treats and My First Gain

I mentioned in my last SW update that I've been struggling with snacks and this is still the case. I think since starting Slimming World these past few weeks have been the worst I've been in terms of sticking to my plan.
