Ray-Ban Sunglasses Giveaway!


Hello and happy Sunday! I haven't done a give away for ages which just isn't okay, I like to say a huge thank you to my amazing followers and readers so I thought the best time to do that would be this weekend. Most people are probably feeling a bit down after having to go back to work now Easter is over and then for students, we've got exams, uhoh. I had such an amazing response to my last RayBan giveaway so I decided to team up with The Sunglasses Shop and give away another pair. You can choose any pair of Ray Bans that you like so I'll put some of my favourites below. Who wouldn’t want a pair in their life?

Easter Detox Guide


Hello everyone :) I've decided to write another fitness and health post for two reasons - firstly because I had a really great response to my 'what I do at the gym' post and secondly because I need to take my mind off all that yummy Easter choccie and get my mind on to fit and healthy thoughts for Summer - writing something on the subject for you helps me too! I'm calling this an after Easter detox post but really, it’s not a detox, it’s a way of life. After my fitness posts, I got a lot of emails from people asking me what I eat so I think this is an ideal time to show you/talk you through what meals I eat.  Obviously some of you really will not care what I eat at all, but I just hope that this helps some of you out. I hope that this will provide you with some healthy inspiration. I'm not saying I'm an expert but this stuff has really helped me so let's hope it helps at least one other person out too. So without further ado, let’s kiss goodbye to the chocolate eggs and say hello to our hot summer bodies…

Imperial Leather FoamBurst Review

imperial leather foamburst

Everyone needs to shower, (I hope you shower anyway) and whilst showering can be a bit of a pain sometimes, particularly for me as every time I shower I seem to be in there for an hour, I'm obsessed with body washes (particularly new launches!) They really do make showers more 'fun' and enjoyable. Well, after all, the reason I go in the shower is to make myself look and smell better... and I wasn't disappointed with this new affordable product from Imperial leather... not only did I smell great, my body has never felt so soft...

Easter Love!

em sheldon

Hello everyone! A massive Happy Easter from me and my favourite bunny, Blue (unfortunately I left him and Uni so he's not here to say hi). I thought I'd do an outfit and lifestyle post today, showing you what I've been up to over Easter. Expect fairy cakes, ice cream, the seaside and obviously, chocolate. I love writing lifestyle posts and I absolutely love Easter, I'm such a festive person so I'm really excited to write this post and share what I've been up to with you...

The Best Pamper Products

I realised this week that I've never actually done a pamper post, how silly of me, after all, who doesn't love to be pampered? Everyone loves to be pampered, surely and even more so, when it's in the comfort of your own home. With it being a bank holiday weekend, I thought everyone would have the time to wind down and relax so hopefully this list of my favourite new pamper products should come in handy. I thought I'd put together a post featuring all my favourite new pampering goodies, you're in for a treat...

Vietnam Vlog!



Eek, hello! I really wanted to put together a little video to show you a bit more about my time in Vietnam. I've truly been over-whelmed with the lovely comments, tweets and emails about my travel posts so thank you so much to everyone who took the time out to keep up with my updates! I hope that this video captures what the blog posts didn't...

When In London: Next New In and Katy Perry Prism Launch Events


Hello everyone! So I've been in London lots recently and thought I'd share what I've been up to with you. I went to an amazing event with Next to check out their new collection and then last night I went to the Katy Perry Prism launch with Claire's accessories. It's safe to say that it's been a hectic month so far and I'm back in London again next week for some more exciting events too so I can't wait to update you on those too!...

April Wish list!


April is here already (how quick is time going!) and I am seriously in the mood for Spring. I absolutely adore Spring as you may have guessed! You may have seen that I've added a continual wish list onto my blog on the top bar, so you can see what I'm admiring all day every day on there as it updates automatically,but, I'll obviously still do my monthly wish lists, they're my favourite kind of posts. I love having a look at what everyone else is lusting over and I love compiling my wish list every month! Anyway, I think this one is my best wish list yet, whilst in Vietnam (you can catch up on my travels here), I literally read so many magazines and wrote down all the products that I liked - oops, sorry bank balance... without further ado, let's see what I'm lusting over!

Spring blog sale!


It's that time again, Spring is here and I fancied a major Spring clean! Like most girls, I have too many clothes I no longer wear and realise that a lot of the things in my wardrobe have only been worn once or haven't been worn at all - I would love for these to go to a new loving home! Before I put the these items on eBay next week, I thought I'd give my readers a chance to grab a bargain as a blog sale is much easier than eBay faffing! Hopefully you'll find something that you like, please share this with your friends etc too if you think they'd like something as I do really need to have a major clear out and get rid of at least half of my wardrobe! Half of my clothes have gone to charity and these are some of the ones left to sell... Happy shopping!

Travel Update 4: Paradise at Emeralda Resort: Ninh Binh/Van Long


Hello everyone! So I feel like this may be my final travel update (boo) as I'm back from my travels now and even though I have so so much to talk about and so many memories, I don't want to bore you all too much. I'm sorry I haven't posted for a few days, I'm really badly jet-lagged and don't feel too well but I'm glad I can finally post this! Here is how I spent my final days in Vietnam, we decided to do something relaxing at the end of our trip after running around so much at the start. We really wanted to visit a famous place called Sapa to do some trekking but unfortunately it was just too far away and we didn't have time so instead, we decided to visit Ninh Binh to do some similar activities. When it came round to it, we literally just completely relaxed instead of doing many activities because the hotel was so amazing and we were so exhausted. Nevertheless, we still had the most unbelievable, relaxing time and I'm excited to share this update with you...

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick Review

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipstick review

New launches are always exciting, particularly so when they're from a high street favourite but even more so when they're as good as this. My ordinary Wednesday was transformed when these turned up at my doorstep (thank you so much Bourjois for giving me the chance to sample your new delights) and I am absolutely thrilled to be reviewing them for you. I am currently in Vietnam as I'm sure you're aware (so many Instagrams oops) but I've scheduled this for you as obviously whilst I'm loving writing about my travels, I still adore beauty too and couldn't not share this with you! I wanted to kind of do this as a date night theme post because these truly are the dream date night lipsticks, however, as you read on, you'll see that these are more than just 'night out lipsticks'. I am so excited to introduce you to Bourjois' new Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks... you really are in for a treat.

Travel Update 2: When In Hanoi

3wiseclothing

I arrived in the hustle and bustle of Hanoi, Vietnam just over a week ago and I promised you all lots of travel updates. Whilst I've been able to Instagram (@emshelx) and tweet (although Twitter is currently not working on my phone or laptop?!), it's been hard to get a strong wifi signal out here for a good amount of time so that I can really update you but finally, I've got wifi so I thought I'd share with you the first few days of my trip. Get excited, there's lots of food, sunsets and I'll even take you for a dip in the pool...
