How To Pack

As I am writing this blog, I am sitting in a room of boxes ready for moving things across to the new residence. The whole prospect of moving to a different part of London is so exciting but it does come with a lot of stressful times… and part of that includes the mammoth task of packing. For a one bedroom flat, we didn’t think we had a lot of belongings but even we are struggling to find enough hours in the day to get everything done. That said, working as a team has been so lovely… as well as playing music in the background to dance along to whilst putting things into boxes. Continue reading How To Pack

The Perfect Pamper Evening

An evening to yourself… your choice of film, pamper products at the ready, your choice of dinner…. bliss! Sometimes we all need a little pamper and time to let our thoughts feel less cluttered, as busy millennials. As much as I love to be around people, sometimes an evening to myself is all I need to feel more relaxed and refreshed. Then, I can enjoy meeting up with friends and family all the more. For me, when I visit people I like to be dedicated to giving them my full attention and so that can be quite exhausting when you have a busy multi-tasking brain. Here are my tips on how to have a perfect evening. Continue reading The Perfect Pamper Evening

Date Night Makeup Look

I love going out for dinner and getting ready is all part of the experience. Me and my boyfriend decided to have a little “date night” and I always enjoy doing my hair and makeup for them. I decided to keep it fairly low key as it was still a hot summer’s day. So, I chose items like SPF and powder foundation, instead of a heavy liquid base. My skin had been quite good that day and so I didn’t want to put too much makeup on. That said, I think I have created a look that makes it seem like I have made a little more effort. I am loving the Eylure Fleur De Force Brow Launch at the moment and decided to make my brows more of a feature. I love the way that good brows can elevate an eye look and give me a little more confidence boost whilst enjoying a cheeky cocktail. I also rediscovered my gorgeous “Birthday Suit” eye palette by Tanya Burr. The shades in this are lovely and they blend really beautifully. Continue reading Date Night Makeup Look

Lemon Polenta Cakes

We are moving home soon… I’m so excited! With that in mind I’ve been trying to use up food we have in the cupboards and I thought I would use some polenta to make little fairy cakes! I haven’t done any baking in a while but I really enjoy it when I have the time. We all deserve the occasional treat too! I got out my baking items and got started on these lemon polenta fairy cakes. The texture of them was divine with the moist lemon and crumbly polenta. You need to try these. I went all out on the lemon too and put it in the glaze AND icing. I hope you enjoy the recipe!

The Importance Of Using SPF

Summer is in full swing and the beautiful sun rays are a constant reminder that we must look after our skin. Skin damage is all too common and although you may not be able to visibly see all the damage, constant exposure to UVA and UVB rays can be worrying. By protecting your skin, you can prolong the ageing process and help to maintain healthier skin. I’m not saying “stay indoors” as vitamin D that we need from being outside is important too. That’s the beauty about SPF, we can put our mind at ease and we can still enjoy the beautiful outdoors happily. Continue reading The Importance Of Using SPF

SourcedBox Review June 2017

SourcedBox is still surprising me with their delicious healthy featured snacks and when I opened the June box I couldn’t wait to dive right in and try the yummy products. The Ombar chocolate straight away stood out to me and I felt this month there were a bright array of different products amongst the bunch. I love subscription boxes like this and it is such a great way of trying products which are hard to get hold of or are things I would not have normally chosen myself. See my thoughts below… Continue reading SourcedBox Review June 2017
