Fashion Wishlist: Night Out/Date Night Inspiration

Even though I'm currently and frantically trying to save money for my travels, I have still been busy making wishlists online and dreaming of the things that I would buy if I won the lottery. There are so many amazing items around at the moment and I really wanted to do a little round up for you. I love writing wishlist posts and seen as I've already done a February wishlist, I thought I'd do this as more of a 'date night/night out inspirtion' post. I'm always up for getting dressed up and going for drinks with my friends or equally, dressing up for a date night so here are a few outfits that I'm loving at the moment for those occasions...

Top Skin Care Products: My Updated Skincare Routine

Skin care is something that everyone uses and it's something that really is different for everyone, I was having a really bad time with my skin this time last year until I asked my Mum for some help. My Mum recommended an incredible bar of soap which completely changed my skin and I really haven't looked back since, it's taken me quite a while to venture onto using new things for my skin and I've come across some incredible things recently which I've added to my skincare routine and I really wanted to share them with you because I'm so happy with how these items have transformed and are still transforming my skin...

Urban Decay Naked Ultra-Nourishing Lipgloss and Naked Ultra Definition Loose Finishing Powder Review

urban decay

I was just a little bit excited when some of Urban Decay's new products landed in my post box. I absolutely adore trying out new products, particularly when they're from one of my favourite brands - I've loved Urban Decay for as long as I can remember, everyone knows that they're the best when it comes to eye palettes, they're pretty much unbeatable, so I was excited to review something which wasn't an eye palette for once, just as incredible though, let me introduce you to their Naked Lipglosses and their Naked Ultra Definition Loose Finishing Powder. I'm doing a joint review of the two products on one blog post because they're both new exciting releases from one brand. You're in for a treat...

Tanya Burr Lips and Nails Review

When I heard that Tanya Burr was bringing out a make up range, like I'm sure most beauty lovers did, I  got very excited. I've been lucky enough to meet Tanya Burr twice, first at the Savoy hotel when we both got our hair styled by Charles Worthington for the 2013 BAFTA's and then at the Lipsy VIP party. Both times she was lovely and it was a genuine pleasure to meet her, she's such a genuinely lovely girl and I am so glad that she is proving to be incredibly successful. I knew that I had to make an order when her products launched on FeelUnique - how could I not? I realise that this blog post is quite late but they actually only arrived a week ago because so many people had ordered it took quite a while but better late than never! It was so hard choosing what to go for but I'm loving neutral things at the moment so I chose one lipgloss and two nail varnishes, read on for swatches and to see how I got on...

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Light Deep Treatment Mousse Review

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Light Deep Treatment Mousse Review
When Aussie contacted me and asked if I'd like to get involved in their 'perfect match' campaign (you'll have seen it all over my Twitter and Instagram) I jumped at the chance (and squealed quite a lot). I have loved Aussie for as long as I can remember, I swear by Aussie haircare, particularly their miracle moist products and hair insurance collection. Both me and my Mum have been true Aussie fans for quite some time now and I just can't get enough. As most of you will know, I am desperately trying to grow my hair back after a not-so-kind experience with bonded hair extensions, so when I heard about their new deep conditioning miracle mousse's, I knew that they were for me. Firstly, because I am trying to leave my hair in its natural state so a nice little mousse will make it look a bit less offensive and secondly, because they're deep conditioning and therefore, good for my hair. Let's see how I got on...

London Fashion Week 2014: Day 2. LFW!

I spent this time last year seriously upset because I wasn't allowed time off work to go to London Fashion Week, even though I don't work there anymore, I didn't really think about London Fashion Week this year because I've been so busy but a few weeks ago, The Body Shop invited me to their backstage lounge and I knew that I had to go this time. I didn't want to go by myself and all of my girlie friends already had plans, so I called upon a friend of mine, Oli White (Oli White TV) to come and be my plus one for the day. Find out all about what I got up to here! (It was pretty exciting).

*not my photo - all photos on here taken from Pinterest 

Beyonce has always been and continues to be a women that I adore. It's hard to say that I aspire to be like her, because I can't sing and there's no way that I could ever even look half as good as her, but in terms of her attitude towards life and her incredible success, she really is an inspiration to me. This year for my birthday, my Mum wanted to surprise me with tickets to see Beyonce, it's been a life long dream of mine and hers but unfortunately it didn't come true, the tickets sold out pretty quickly (it is Queen B after all). But, earlier this week, my luck changed and I got an email from Phones4U offering me 2 tickets to see Beyonce at her World Tour later this month, naturally, I've chosen my Mum as a companion. I wanted to share the love and tell you how you can also win tickets, there are 5 more pairs up for grabs and I'd love for one of my readers to be a winner. Read on to find out more...

Joni Check Jeans and London Retro Frames: Outfit Of The Day

I thought it was time for an outfit of the day, I particularly wanted to post this look soon before these jeans go out of fashion, they only came into Topshop recently but I've seen so many people wearing them already so I think they may be short lived! I feel like they make me look a lot bigger than I am though (these are a size 6) but I guess patterns are just hard to wear and not that flattering...

Hotel Chocolat's Roast And Conch Restaurant Review

hotel chocolat

Last night I was lucky enough to try the full cocoa experience at Hotel Chocolat's new restaurant, Roast and Conch. Roast + Conch have restaurants in both London and Leeds and I was very excited to experience real chocolate in my home city, Leeds. The restaurant is a new addition to Leeds and I feel very proud to have such an incredible restaurant/bar and experience available to everyone in the city. The photographs will hopefully help share my experience with you, all I'm going to say is, this is so much more than just a restaurant or bar, you're in for a delicious ride...

Now it's the exciting part, time to show you what's inside...

Valentines Day Gift Guide For Him & Her!

So Valentines day is nearly here, only 12 days to go! I guess it's probably time to start thinking about gifts, I personally don't think Valentines day is really about big gifts as such, for me, it's about cute personalised items and things which are personal to you and your favourite person. But, lucky for you, I LOVE writing gift guides (and I just love Valentines day) so you're in the right place, also, don't worry if you think you've left it too late, you haven't, most of these are things that you can buy online. Without further ado, here's my Valentines day gift guide...

Neon Skirt and Sequins: Outfit Of The Day

It may be cold outside, but when there's a little bit of sunshine shining through, Winter really can be beautiful.

Here's my neon outfit of the day, let's brighten up these dull Winter months...
