What’s On My Desk.

I’m keeping up with the flow of the bedroom posts for a while and showing you what’s on my desk and how I go about the organisation. I have a cute little desk from IKEA. My parents got me it especially for my new uni room & its just so fantastic.

A Late Weekly Obsession #4: Knee Highs.

Bonjourno people! My posts have been a little late recently because my boyfriend came to visit me (he's still here now), but I have managed to get some time to write about my weekly obsession... knee highs.

TK Maxx Cosmetic Storage.

If you didn't know already, TK Maxx is great place for us to get some really good quality stuff for not so good quality prices. Even though it can take a while for you to dig out something of value, when you find something, you really find something. I have happened to discover a cool range of acrylic cosmetic organisers that I think you'll love!

What's On My Bedside Table.


Since my uni room is nearly all done and dusted and organised etc. (too as much as it can be, that is), I thought it was time for one of these posts. I really love the cute little bedside table I got from IKEA, it looks really nice and it was only £15, bonus!

My University Room Tour.

Hey people, today I’m giving you a little tour of my room at university. I told myself that I was going to do one when it was all completed and ready, but I then realised that I don’t think it will EVER be completed because I’m not rich, sadly. But here we go anyway, with my semi-completed room!

Hello again, I promise you I haven’t left! I have moved in to my new flat in Newcastle and I only managed to get the internet today, how tragic!

Benefit's Sugarbomb Blush.

Hello everyone! I'm sorry its been a few days, I've been distracted + busy sorting out my uni stuff. I'm going up on Saturday so things will probably be all over the place until then, I hope that's okay! Today I'm coming to you with my review of Benefit's Sugarbomb blush, I was lucky enough to receive this for my birthday, and I love it, so I thought "why not do a review?".

Why You Should Start Blogging.

Blogging is an absolutely brilliant way to help you improve yourself, your skills and your interests, whilst doing something that you adore. However, many people struggle with those first steps of taking the plunge and signing up. If you're one of those people, then today I'm here to tell you why you should take that plunge and enter the blogosphere!

September Mood Board.

So here it is, my awaited September Mood Board! I say awaited because I've been picking up bits of inspiration for anything Septembery, if that's a word, and I've had no idea how to piece them together properly. As an introduction to the series, I would like to say that this won't be a long post or anything too hardcore. I feel like a bigger impact is sometimes made from just having the pictures explain themselves, and its easier for me to produce too! I will, of course, be explaining things in a little paragraph, here it goes...

The Top 10 Tag.

The other day I was nominated by Millie at Corkscrew Curls for 'The Top Ten Tag' (thank you, Millie! go check her out!). Even though I'm not too fond of doing tags, I thought this one was pretty interesting so I thought I'd give it a go! If you don't know what the tag is, all you do is list your favourite product from each of the categories. I'm pretty nosy when it comes down to peoples favourites and stuff because I can discover new products, I'm sure most of you who are reading this will be similar.

So finally, here it is, my review of CHANEL's VITALUMIÉRE foundation. I've wanted to do this review ever since I got the foundation a few weeks back, but I didn't because I wanted to fully test it out and make up my mind... and I think I have come to my conclusion.

My Hair Styler Collection.

Hello readers! I've wanted to share my hair styler collection with you all since I started blogging but inspiration for other posts got in the way. Since I'm (kind of) getting back into the swing of things since coming back from Turkey, I've decided to post this now as inspiration is a little low!

MAC Lipstick - Hue.

I once loathed nude shades because I used to think they looked kind of trashy and a little bit slutty. I have no idea why I came to this conclusion, it was all in my head, of course, but I just never was attracted to nudes for that reason, and what a fool I was. Since I wasn't one for nudes, I hadn't even tried it on before until I went into MAC looking for a shade to try out. My friend Kathryn already had Hue, and it looks really nice on her so I tried it on, and I loved it.

Signature Scent - CHANEL NO. 5.

Many believe signature scents are what make people different from one another, and I happen to be one of them. Signature scents aren't just there to make you feel and smell nice, in fact, in my opinion, the better your perfume the classier you are.

My Weekly Obsession #2.

Here I am with my second weekly obsession, I really like this series up to now, even though I'm only the second post in! I think I like it so much because I don't have to sit down and have a good think or plan before I write. I just write. I find that in "just writing" I end up spilling out a load of babble which needs to be edited, of course, but I end up with better content. I might try that method when I write my next post and see how it goes.

IKEA Wishlist.

September 22nd is looming. That's the day when I officially start my second year of university. Even though I am excited to go back, the amount of work that I'll be doing is dreadful, but it'll all be for a good cause! To get me in the mood for going back, nothing works better than a good trip to IKEA. I go on one every year before I go back so I like to plan what I want to buy so I don't get too distracted by other stuff (cause then I'll just spend loads on stuff I don't really need, and no-one wants that).

August Favourites.

Hey readers, today I'm back with my August favourites. Sorry its an hour late, if you noticed, that is! Even though August is over, I'm so excited for what my September favourites will bring, and what new products will be released. Let me know if there's anything you think I'll love.

Blog News.

Hello glorious readers! If you've read my last post (Summing Up August) you would have noted that I'm planning on some schedule changes and new series' to try and reshape my blog. I thought I'd describe in a little detail more about these, and why I've decided to do them!

August Sum Up.

Happy September to you all! Here in England I'll be trying to buy the last of the summer clothes for bargains so that I can wear them next year, and I'll also be adding more layers to my outfits later in the month to protect me from cold weather (which I'm kind of looking forward to, TBH).
