Zoella Beauty Christmas Collection Review - Zoella Cosmos Range - Snow'Ella

zoella Christmas cosmos collection 2018
Gifted items - Ahh, the time is here, Snow'Ella has landed! I was SO excited when the Zoella Beauty Christmas/Winter collection came through the door, it's fun, festive and affordable so makes the perfect pamper treats for stockings or as a treat for yourself. This is going to make my bathroom look so beautiful for Winter. Today, it's time for a review of the Zoella Beauty Christmas and Winter collection. I've said it over and over but Zoe Sugg is an inspiration to so many, what started as a hobby in her bedroom and now she has a whole team working alongside her to create beautiful ranges like the one I'm about to review. I'm such a fan of the content Zoe creates. I first tried Zoella Jelly Gelato range and it certainly didn't disappoint. Most recently, I fell in love with Zoella Splash Botanics and now, it's time to get cosy and festive. I love a Winter pamper.

Glossier Products Review

Getting spendy in Glossier always means it's time for a new beauty brand spotlight update post. If you remember rightly, I wrote about Glossier finally being available in the U.K back in October last year, how was that one whole year ago?! I reviewed a few cult products from Glossier and since then, my love has only got stronger. Today I wanted to write a little updated post featuring some new bits I've tried from Glossier recently, p.s, if you're in New York, make sure you head to the Glossier showroom - it's beautiful!

Must Have Jumper + Knit Dresses

I fell head over heels in love with jumper dresses a few years ago and I truly have never looked back; comfort, style, easy to throw on and you can dress them up or down. What's not to love? I think my most worn outfit during the colder months is a knit dress and they need shouting about more. I love throwing something on, feeling fabulous but feeling comfortable all day too. I realised I haven't written a fashion blog post in quite some time so today, we're talking must have jumper dresses.

The Best Pizza Slice In New York

joe's pizza nyc


New York is famous for its pizza but one of the main questions I’m asked? Where do you get the best pizza slice from in NYC? I’m very lucky to have visited New York many times and it truly feels like a bit of a second home now. Rumour has it, there are so many restaurants popping up in New York all the time that you could eat out every night for 10 years and STILL not try them all. If you've ever read my huge New York city travel guide you'll know that I absolutely love visiting New York and have tried many of their restaurants but I still have thousands to tick off. Here are so many different opinions on where to get the best pizza slice from in New York but I thought I’d share some wisdom on my top places for the best pizza in New York.

Everything You Need To Know About Doing A Year Abroad / Studying Abroad

I know I’ve written quite a few University themed blog posts recently but these posts seem to have been highly requested (thank you so much for your topic ideas on Instagram: @emshelx). It hit me recently that I never actually spoke about my year abroad experience or talked about the logistics of moving my life to another country. I guess back then, it felt so crazy and I did keep some of it private. I mean, there are some seriously old (really rubbish) travel vlogs on my YouTube from my time there but I rarely spoke about how to apply for a year abroad, the logistics of doing a year abroad and what it’s like to move your life to the other side of the world. I get quite a lot of messages about this so whether you’re thinking about doing a year abroad or thinking about starting a new life abroad or even just going away for a prolonged period of time, I hope you will find this blog post useful. You might also find my top travel tips and hacks blog post useful too. (Get ready for some old photos)

The University Experience


Hello hello! I’ve written a fair few blog posts about my time at university, including the motivation for deadlines/essays at University, how to get the most out of University and even a video called the things they don’t tell you about University. I haven’t however really ever just sat down and talked about my experience at University as a whole. On Instagram (@emshelx) I asked if anyone had any specific topics they’d like me to cover and one that came up many times? My University experience. Get cosy and let’s talk through my honest university experience. Whether you’re thinking about going to University, already at University or have graduated, hopefully this may help/resonate with you.
