‘Gifted’ is a word that is popping up everywhere on social media recently and the subject is something I feel is worthy of its own blog post firstly to allay any confusion and to explain what ‘gifted’ really means. I love listening to what people have to say on different subjects, one of the most amazing things about the whole social media world is that everyone gets an opportunity to share their views and those views are often so varied and different which absolutely fascinates me. The perception I get from listening to a wide community of followers on the subject of things being ‘gifted’ is that when the word gifted is used then bloggers must be receiving everything for free. I’ll be honest, it’s for this reason I don’t personally like the word ‘gifted’ and the reasons for that will hopefully become clear throughout this post but in a nutshell, unlike a present given by a friend or family members, media ‘gifts’ usually require some work before deciding whether or not to talk about them.

Erborian CC Eye Cream Review - The Low Down On BB and CC Creams

Erborian CC Eye Cream Review
Press sample featured - We're all busy and always on the go plus with my job I'm quite often in front of a camera for photo shoots so I’m always looking for ways to ensure I can make my skin look good without endless hours of effort. I'm also always looking for ways to hide my tiredness as I usually have quite puffy eyes. I'm definitely a quick-get-ready kinda gal and would rather have an extra ten minutes in bed.  One thing that has helped me tremendously over the years is the range of CC/BB creams on the market and I rarely wear make up without applying them first in the warmer months. I definitely feel as if I up my CC/BB game in Spring, as soon as the weather starts to get a little nicer I slather it on. In fact, on non-make up days I often use them to even out my skin tone and give me a healthy glow without popping any foundation over the top. Today I'm going to talk to you about an epic new CC eye cream, Erborian's CC Eye Cream, yep, I've used BB and CC face creams for years but never an eye cream version. Let's discuss.

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Midnight Eau de Parfum Review

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Midnight

Gifted press sample featured - It was a very exciting day when the postman arrived at my door with the brand new Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Midnight. All of this lovely early spring weather (finally, hello!) is getting me in the mood for beaches, holidays, eating outside and just generally enjoying the lighter evenings. Trips away always make me think about my favourite scents and if you're a long time Emtalks reader you'll know, one of my absolute all time favourite fragrances is the original Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf. There are a few scents I've grown up with, Juicy Couture being one of them, Marc Jacobs Daisy of course and Flowerbomb being another! It only felt right then to review the brand new Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Midnight fragrance today, a sensual take on an old favourite of mine but something that's quickly become a new favourite. Let's discuss.

Mothers Day Gift Ideas & What To Do On Mothers Day

Leeds uni graduation post

She carried me for 9 months, hers was the first face I saw when I came in to the world and the first hand I held to guide me through life and she’s provided my brother and I with the most solid relationship and the greatest love story on earth. I'm sure most of you are aware that my Mum is literally everything to me, we have the closest bond and I am so grateful to have such a powerful, strong, incredible Mumma. If I could choose family, I'd choose my Mum, brother and grandparents a million times over. I got really lucky with them. It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday 31st March and while we try and show Mumma Shel lots of love every day of the year, just like most Mums she is very worthy of this special day being dedicated to her each year so that we can go the extra mile. Of course, she’s a typical selfless Mama and doesn’t see it that way. Every year she says the same thing ‘don’t think you have to spend lots of money on me for Mother’s Day. I’ve got all I need with you two'... Well hard luck Mama because we’re gonna ignore you and spoil you anyway haha. Open up this blog post for lots of Mother's Day gift ideas and things you can do with your Mum or loved ones/Mother figure this Mother's Day. Whilst Mother's Day is called 'Mother's Day' traditionally, it goes without saying that you can do these things with anyone you love, I always spoil my Nanna on Mother's Day.
