I feel like I haven't really been in the UK much in the past year so now I'm back, I feel like it's time to explore my beautiful country. There are so many amazing places I want to visit in the UK and it's so easy to do so with a car. That's my mission this year; See more of the UK. I couldn't say no then when I was invited to Newcastle recently with my lovely friend Kayleigh. I decided to take my new coat, shoes and two-piece for a swing. I've never visited Newcastle before but it's such a lovely city and I'll most definitely be going back.

Hello! So a little bit of a different post from me today and a few things I wanted to talk about to you as the new university season is upon us. Yikes. That came around quick. For those of you starting university, it's a crazy, big step. I don't want to scare you because it's not just scary, it's exciting, exhilarating and you'll change as a person. It's amazing, you should be so proud if you got into university (but equally if you didn't, who cares, it's not for everyone!). Most of you will be leaving home for the first time (unless you did a gap year) so I just wanted to give you a few little words of wisdom (or things I wish someone told me before I started university). Let's go...

Last week I headed to London Fashion Week to see what was going on and catch up on some shows. Naturally I wanted *needed* to share my outfit with you. I can't wait to share some of these photos with you taken by the amazingly talented Oscar May.

Hello hello! I haven't really spoken about my latest skin care routine for quite some time but I thought I'd touch on some new exciting products I’ve been trying out. We're about to hit that time of year where our skin changes along with the weather. My skin hates going from warm weather to cold weather and as today is the first day of Autumn, we should probably be looking at what we're putting on our skin to keep it hydrated...

Ah Ibiza feels like forever ago but I've still got this one final post to share with you eek, my apologies for the delay in posting this one. I'm currently sat in rainy England and writing this really isn't helping my wanderlust. Get.Me.On.A.Plane. It's crazy, once you start travelling you never want to stop. Don't do it to yourself. Well, do it, but be prepared to forever want to be on the move afterwards. Anyway, let's talk about my day at Formentera, aka an incredibly beautiful place.

Hello hello hello! If you follow me on Snapchat/Twitter/Instagram (you can find me as 'emshelx' on them all so do come say hello!) you'll know that on Thursday evening I headed to London for a pretty exciting event. The lovely Fleur De Force recently announced her new make up collection eek and it was time for the launch party with FeelUnique on Thursday! I can't wait to show you what we got up to at the party but also, show you the new Fleur De Force Beauty range!

Autumn is my favourite season, give me crisp leaves, fireworks, marshmallows by the fire and hot chocolate before bed any day. That goes for Autumn fashion too, it's absolute my favourite. Think chunky knits, big long boots and over-sized coats - count me in. For that reason I'm really excited to be offering a glimpse at two pairs of shoes from a new collection today. As Marilyn Monroe said "give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world."

When an email dropped into my inbox inviting me to Leeds Festival over bank holiday weekend, I couldn't say no. I was sad that I hadn't visited any festivals this Summer (all I wanted to do was go to Coachella) and that I had to turn down V Fest the previous weekend so let's just say this email came at the right time. I was suffering from why-haven't-I-visited-a-festival-this-Summer blues but Relentless Energy Drinks came along and saved the day. I grabbed some new wellies, panicked over what to wear and then headed down to Leeds fest, let's see what I got up to...

When I was asked if I'd like to do a photoshoot for ASOS I squealed a little bit, okay, a lot. ASOS have long been one of my favourite websites and I'm pretty sure they're one of yours too! ASOS have taken the world by storm and provided us with amazing fashion right at our finger tips (I personally make an order on there at least once a week oops). I felt honoured to be asked to shoot with them so off I headed to London for an exciting late-night photoshoot with the most talented team!

Hello hello hello! So I haven't done a brand spotlight post for a little while but do not fear, I am back and today I am talking about one of my favourite brands ever; Palmers so I am super excited! As much as I am a lover of high-end beauty brands, there are some household names that will just never get old. I'm pretty sure you'll know how much I adore Palmers if you read my blog often. I am a sucker for Palmers and I blame my Mum. You may have seen me talking about my love for Palmers on my recent favourite body oils video (watch it here if you missed that) but basically, my Mum has always sworn by it and has kind of engraved that in me. Let's talk about Palmers today but also, you've got the chance to win everything on this post too hooray so keep reading!!!

Hello hello! If you're subscribed to me on YouTube (if not it would mean the world to me if you could quickly click here and subscribe!) you'll probably have seen my top body oils video and heard about how much I love moisturisers and body oils. I am hooked to making my body feel smooth, happy and moisturised. After this video, the lovely people at AromaWorks contacted me with a body oil I actually hadn't tried and I jumped at the chance to give this one a go. I also feel like my blog has been lacking beauty recently so it feels oh-so good to be writing about beauty again. Let's discuss...

Ah another Ibiza post from me yay. Last month I visited the beautiful Ibiza for the first time (read about my trip here if you missed part 1). Today I'm sat in cold England, missing the sunshine and longing for a pretty sunset so I decided to put up another little Ibiza post. I wanted to share one of my favourite outfits from the trip with you today, this simple little white top and skirt but I also wanted to show you the most beautiful sunset too...

When Wahanda kindly sent me a voucher to book a spa trip/beauty appointment a few months ago I was pretty excited. I've not really taken time out or a day off in a long long time. Social media is constant, it's 24/7 and as much as I adore it (I would not change it/my job for the world), it's sometimes really nice to just switch off. My Mum is the most incredible woman in the world, she is my inspiration, my rock and my best friend so any opportunity to treat her makes me extremely happy - she deserves a break! It took me months to finally use the voucher as I just haven't really had a spare second but last week me and my Mum finally decided to log onto Wahanda (you basically can choose thousands of beauty appointments and spa trips all around the UK and book online - it's so easy) and book somewhere last minute. I'm excited to have a chat about my day!
