Korres Sleepover Kit Review.



Korres is a brand which I’ve always loved, I came across it in Harvey Nichols, I actually found it in the beauty gifts department section and instantly fell for their quirky yet beautiful gift sets and fell in love even more when I saw the price tags, affordable, luxurious, natural and delicious – what’s not to love? We’re getting closer and closer to the season of love, so I thought there was no better to time to introduce you to my new best friend, The Sleepover Set.

Valentines Day Inspiration

There are only 2ish weeks to go until Valentines day and whether you're single, taken or have given up on love all together, we may as well share the love, even if it's just with your best friend. I personally adore all things Valentines day, I'm such a festive person, Christmas, Easter, Valentines day - I just love them all, I am majorly keen. I thought I'd compile an easy read post including some of my favourite Valentines day photos, hopefully they might inspire you to do something cute this Valentines day or they might just brighten your day and get you into a lovey dovey mood, let's try this...

Be My Valentine: Pink Roses With Motel

A cheeky Valentines day themed post from me today. I am loving fashion posts at the moment so I was really excited to finally wear something a little bit more vibrant, the weather is dull and boring so I thought I'd brighten it up by wearing a bright pink skirt - perfect for the season of love which is ahead of us...

Hepworths Deli - Weekend Deliciousness

When I was invited to work with Barclays as part of their Barclay card independent retailer campaign I knew I simply couldn’t resist. I was asked to choose my favorite independent retailer (naturally I’d have said my own shop, LVNDR but I’m sure that’s against the rules and a bit bias) so instead, I went for the obvious option, a place which I rave on about and have long wanted to share with you, Hepworth's Deli. Now if you’re on a diet, or healthy eating, you’re in the wrong place and should probably head over to my detox post, however, if you like breaking the rules and are well into your food, then you’re in for a treat, as Instagram hashtags go, this place is serious #foodporn. Get ready for the best deli in town…

Pink To Make The Boys Wink: Pink Beauty Products

When I was tidying my room the other day, I realised that I have so many pink coloured products in my life, it's quite worrying actually. I absolutely love Valentines day too, so I thought that I'd do a little round up of my pinky, most girlie products, particularly because it's nearly the month of love as well. I hope you enjoy it!

Get Ready With Me!

So a little announcement from me today! As most of you will know, my New Year's resolution was to start YouTube properly (eek, runs away into a corner and hides of embarrassment and nerves). I've had many failed attempts at YouTube because firstly, I don't really like myself on camera, secondly, I feel it's super personal and scary, but I've decided to face my fears and I can promise you that I will be uploading a new video every Monday! I can't wait to properly get started with YouTube and your support would be incredible. Please watch my 'Get Ready with Me' video above! I'd love to know what you want to see from me in the comments section below so keep reading please...

Pretty In Pink: Leighton Denny Love


I’m all for discovering exciting new brands/products so when I put this Leighton Denny varnish on my nails, I knew that I had to rave about it and introduce those of you who haven’t used Leighton Denny before, to my new favourite nail varnish brand. Leighton Denny isn’t really a new brand, in fact, I was first introduced to it when I received a miniature nude L.D polish in a GlossyBox years ago but it still remains my favorite nude polish to this day and this varnish is no different…

A Worthwhile Beauty Box: The Glamour Beauty Edit by Latest In Beauty

There are always beauty boxes flying around the blog-world, some of them are brilliant and some of them really are just not that great, but that's part of the fun: you don't know what you're getting inside your box and it's an exciting treat every month. I used to pay £10.00 per month (and postage and packaging) for a beauty box and then came to the conclusion that I was never really 100% satisfied with the contents of the box (or the size of the samples for the price that I paid). But I'm not gonna lie, sometimes I really do miss receiving a box brimming with cute new goodies every month. When I heard about LatestInBeauty's Glamour Beauty Edit, I knew that this was a winner though...

Fazenda Restaurant Review: Meat Meat Meat

I haven't done any food reviews for a while so here's one for the boys (and girls if you like cocktails and delicious meat). Just before Christmas I ate at Fazenda, now if you're interested in all-you-can-eat high quality meat, then this is for you. When someone says 'all you can eat' I usually assume that the foods going to be really rubbish quality, but not at Fazenda, everything is cooked perfectly (and tastes incredible) and they really pride themselves on the quality of the meat - read on to see how it works...

The Mint Boyfriend Coat

hedkandy hair extensions dirty looks
I seem to spend half of my life searching for new coats, I ordered quite a few in the Zara sale and unfortunately none of them were nice, then, the other day, without even looking for a coat, I was shopping and happened to stumble upon this beautiful mint boyfriend fit coat. Bam, it was love and first sight and without even looking at the price tag, I went and bought it. Naughty me...

2014 Fashion WishList

Hello! So today I was thinking, how is it right that I wrote a 2014 beauty wishlist and not a fashion one? I've noticed in the past week just how lovely some of the new season items are that are slowly making their way onto websites and into stores (move away sales, I'm bored of you now) and I realised that I might as well write a 2014 fashion wishlist too. I absolutely love reading wishlist posts and I love writing them, although unfortunately, my bank balance doesn't share that love...

Filorga Eye-Recover Anti-fatigue Eye Mask Review: Look More Awake In 15 Mins

Filorga Eye-Recover Anti-fatigue Eye Mask review

You may have seen me raving on Twitter about Filorga, and rightly so, when I heard that a product had been invented which promises to absorb tiredness from the eyes, target all signs of swelling, under-eye shadows, puffiness, sagging skin, you name it, I knew that this was the product for me. Naturally, I was a bit apprehensive, but please do read on…

2014 Beauty Wishlist


New year new me isn't exactly my favourite phrase, but new year, new make up collection is. I love any excuse to revamp my make up collection so I've decided to make a massive list of all the things that I've had my eye on and tell you why I want them - these are the things that I'm saving up for this Christmas and as soon as Boots have a major 3 for 2 deal on, I'll hopefully be ticking a lot of them off my wishlist...

How To Detox After Christmas: Detox Tips


When an extra special package arrived through my door from Clinique, I knew that it gave me the perfect excuse to write a January detox post. If you're anything like me, I'm sure you'll have binged out over Christmas, we're talking mince pies, a glass of wine or 5 and far too much chocolate. Do not fear though, everyone's allowed a break and December was yours, it's January now, the start of a new year so there's no better time to get fit and healthy. People often ask me what I do at the gym or how I stay toned (not that I think at all that I am perfect - I've got a long way to go), but here's a little post with what I've been doing in order to stay toned and what I will be doing throughout January in order to get my summer body back in shape. I've seen so many people saying that they're detoxing already this month, so now it's my turn... (and yours if you'd like to join me) Let's do this together!

Winter Terrace At The Alchemist: Girls Night Out

It doesn't have to be Christmas to have a Winter cocktail, however, it does have to be quite chilly to justify something as a 'Wintery drink' and extremely chilly it is in England at the moment. Recently I was invited to try out The Alchemist's Winter Terrace and of course, I couldn't decline. We're talking fur throws, scrummy cocktails and gorgeous nibbles. What's not to love?

Benefit The Porefessional Agent Zero Shine Powder Review

A new launch from Benefit always feels like Christmas to me. Benefit are one of the brands who always seem to get it right, so when this exciting little package landed in my postbox, I was pretty excited. When it comes to powder, I am absolutely hooked to my MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural Powder and have used it and sworn by it for years, so it really is going to take something really really good to make me stop using that. Let's see if The Porefessional Agent Zero Shine Powder from Benefit did the trick...

My Every Day Make Up Routine



I thought it was about time I do a post about my every day make up routine. I recently filmed a YouTube video about it and thought I'd do a blog post to go with it. I love seeing what people's holy grail items are and with so many products around, it's difficult to distinguish between what I use every day and what I only use occasionally. I've got together the items that I use most of the time, this really is my standard, every day make up routine and I'd love to hear about yours too...
