My friend said to me yesterday 'it's like Black Friday never ended, there are sales everywhere' and that's when I realised, Monday 14th December marks 10 days until Christmas Eve, aka, the final week to get Christmas presents and for my last minute shoppers, if you missed out on Black Friday sales, this is the week for pre-Christmas sales. I hope you find this useful, bookmark it and keep checking back for updates but it's a great way to get some discounts on things you already had on your list.

How To Get A Better Nights Sleep - 6 Sleeping Tips

Pukka Night Time Tea / Chunky cardigan / fluffy lounge set / Ad affiliate

Advertorial post - Hello hello. How is your sleep at the moment? Has it been impacted this year? When I’ve discussed it with friends and family I’ve received mixed views - some have slept through the entire period as much as possible in the hope that they will wake up and life will have returned to normal and others have found the lack of their ordinary day to day activities and added worry about their livelihoods, children, the situation etc etc has meant that they are not as settled as they used to be and can hardly sleep at all. Many friends are lacking in sleep from stress and even having the weirdest of nightmares, to say it's a weird time would be an understatement. It’s so sad that something so natural as sleep and something that can make us feel so much better when we get enough of it can be so easily disrupted by stress, hormones, alcohol, and so many other variables. Today I am here to talk to you about sleeping tips as I feel like I am finally in a good routine with my sleep and trust me, the benefits are well worth it.

I’m a sucker for all seasons to be honest but there’s something about the twinkle of Christmas lights, seeing parcels beautifully wrapped, eating my first mince pie of the season and of course, all the Christmas movies... honestly, I am just here for some positivity and sparkle this year. Another reason I love Christmas? Advent calendars. If it’s a chocolate advent calendar you’re after this year, this is for you.

Gucci Belt Buying Guide - Gucci Belt Sizing Guide And Review

Ad affiliate throughout - One of my most asked questions is 'what width should I buy in a Gucci belt?'  so today I thought I would write up a blog post reviewing the sizing and different styles of Gucci belts in the hopes that it helps you decide which Gucci belt to buy. Gucci Marmont belts came into fashion and they're here to stay, years down the line, they are a great designer staple. Whether you decide to go understated with a small Gucci belt or big and bold, there's an option for everyone. Hopefully my Gucci belt buying guide and Gucci belt sizing and review will help you decide which Gucci belt to buy and no, you're not too late to the trend to get a Gucci belt as lucky for us, they keep bringing out new designs and sizes in the belts.

With less than 50ish days until Christmas at the time of publishing this, it's fair to say, Christmas is creeping up on us very quickly indeed. My Christmas gift guides are starting earlier this year as it seems more people are shopping online earlier this year and trying to get organised so I thought it was the perfect time to start with my first gift guide of the year. I'm bringing you some of the best Christmas gift ideas for everyone... rather than making this particular guide gender specific (don't worry, they're coming too) I thought I’d put together a little guide to universal Christmas gift ideas so you've got some Christmas gift ideas for even the hardest person to buy for… the kind of gifts your Mum/Grandma/Dog/Grandad/Mother In Law and boyfriend will love, one of these will definitely tick that box. 

If you’re not thinking of Christmas just yet, these will be great for ‘I’m thinking of you’ gifts too. Keep an eye out for more Christmas gift guides coming soon and don’t forget to bookmark this blog post and come back to it. 

P.S Don't miss my gift ideas for everyone post I wrote up earlier this year for even more amazing gift ideas and the best promo codes, if you're looking for discounted Christmas gifts! Oh and of course,

10 Best Beauty Advent Calendars 2020

best beauty advent calendars

Ad affiliate throughout - photos by Marta Ferenc 

Tis the season for advent calendars, yes, really, love it or hate it, they’re back. You may think I'm crazy for blogging about beauty advent calendars in October but many of them are already sold out, the world just goes wild for beauty advent calendars. Now, I'm a big believer in sprinkling glitter wherever you go when the festive season comes around and we all have our special traditions; for some that may be having a mince pie every day until Christmas, for others, that may be putting Christmas decorations everywhere, for some, that may be opening the door of a shiny advent calendar every day in December. I'm personally a sucker for advent calendars, I'm a chocolate and beauty kinda advent calendar girl and don't like to get rid of the traditional advent calendar, so I guess I'll have one of each. -  a beauty advent calendar and a chocolate one. SO many brands now do beauty advent calendars so I thought I would put together a blog post of the top 10 beauty advent calendars to buy this Christmas.

The Best Body Moisturisers To Buy - Top 11 Body Lotions And Moisturisers

Ad affiliate throughout -
I got an email the other day asking which luxury body moisturiser someone should buy as a gift for Christmas and that got me thinking, isn’t it time I write up a guide to the best body moisturisers? Firstly, we're getting closer to Christmas and some of you may be thinking about Christmas presents (a lovely body lotion makes such a good Christmas present for literally anyone on your list, we all need to moisturise) but secondly, I'd like to think 2020 is the year of self-care: go and run yourself a long hot bath and get ready to lather your body in something lovely afterwards. I’ve upped my moisturising game recently, I've always been a body oil kinda girl but I think they're more Summer friendly. You can read my blog post about the best body oils if you are a body oil kinda person. I feel like body moisturisers and lotions have more oommfff and definitely give better results, an oil soaks in quickly but a moisturiser gets in deeply and feels more firming I guess. Open up for my blog post featuring the best body moisturisers and the best body lotions, perfect if you're looking for something new for yourself or, as a gift for someone else. Here is my guide to the best body moisturisers and body lotions to buy. Bookmark this and come back closer to Christmas if you're looking for Christmas gift ideas.

Kiehl's Advent Calendar 2020 - Kiehls Holiday Advent Calendar Review

kiehls advent calendar 2020

Ad affiliate links + Ad Pr products - Tis the season for advent calendars, yep, really. I know it seems crazy, we haven't even had Halloween yet and honestly, I was always taught not to talk about Christmas until after Bonfire night but in the wild world of beauty, beauty advent calendars sell out pretty quickly and usually, by November, they're gone. The Kiehl's beauty advent calendar 2020 launches on October 16th so I thought this was the perfect chance to review the new Kiehl's holiday calendar 2020 before it sells out.

Tis the season for knee high boots and I'm not mad about it, it’s my favourite season. I love wearing knee high boots or thigh high boots because: 1) they go with literally every outfit - 2) look great - 3) they keep me warm but also 4) save me from shaving my legs - quadruple whammy. I keep getting so many messages on Instagram about my knee high boots so I thought I would write up a blog post reviewing Stuart Weitzman knee high boots but also, include some more affordable, dupe Stuart Weitzman knee high boots too.

5 Best Hair Products For Growing And Strengthening Damaged Hair

best hair growing products

Ad affiliate & Ad PR samples throughout - 

Lockdown was weirdly kind to my hair, giving it a proper rest for the first time since I came out of the womb pretty much. I didn’t colour my hair for over 20 weeks, considering I usually colour it every 1–012 weeks, this was a much needed rest for my bleached locks. Over the years, I’ve had to learn the art of being kinder to my hair, goodbye full head of bleach and extensions, hello au natural, shorter hair with highlights. Am I happy with my hair length and strength? Getting there. Is it where I want it to be? No. Is it better than what it was? You cannot imagine how much stronger my hair is now. I’m not saying my hair is perfect, far from it after a traumatic few years of damage and reactive alopecia however, my hair is growing, it is stronger and hairdressers say it’s in good condition now, I’ll take that. Over the years I have written so many blog posts on the best hair growth products an d the best hair strengthening products. I thought I’d do an update today with the top 5 best hair growing and strengthening products I love. 

The good thing about all these brands I've mentioned is they work from within, rather than just coating the hair in silicone and making it 'feel' shiny.

Top House Buying And Money Saving Tips

notting hill houses

- Advertorial post with The Nottingham - Ad affiliate - pink trousers / sunglasses 

Hello hello! For my long time followers, you may remember the drama I had with trying to buy my first house when I was 23, I thought I’d found the London house of my dreams but we hit A LOT of roadblocks along the way, I was eaten by the London property market straight away and realised house buying really isn’t easy. Looking forward to now, I recognise that purchase was a lesson learnt and I am so glad I didn’t get that house. Life has a funny way of working itself out. Before I moved to rent in London I was looking to buy there and I recall my mum saying that I will find house buying a lot more difficult than I think and that even with the most straight-forward of property purchases there are always issues. As usual, mum was right and although I haven’t talked about the details but 3 house purchases have now unfortunately been abandoned for one reason or another. I always get to that final stage and then POW – something goes wrong...

Now if you guys have been reading my blog for sometime, you'll know I love writing guides, whether it's my guide to the best trainers, the best sports bras to buy, the best workout leggings or even the best fitness tracking watches. I was asked on Twitter to recommend some good shoes to walk in during summer, but not necessarily trainers and I totally understand, often when I am abroad or even in London, I will have a 30 minute walk somewhere to dinner but I don't want to wear trainers as I want whatever shoes I'm wearing to look good with my outfit, ensure I adhere to dress codes of restaurants but be comfortable too (as comfy and lovely as trainers are, they don't always pass the restaurant test), alas, this blog post was born. Here are my top comfortable Summer shoes, ones you can comfortably walk in, but they'll look great popping into restaurants etc too.

Hey guys hope you are so well, it was my boyfriends birthday yesterday and I have had hundreds of messages on instagram (@emshelx) asking what I bought him and asking for gift ideas for loved ones. It seems a lot of people are in the same situation as me during this lockdown, ordinarily I would take Matt abroad for his birthday, spoil him with his favourite restaurants and do lovely experiences together, this year, not so much. When you're someone who loves experiences, it's hard to be locked in a house during someones birthday but that doesn't mean you can't make it fun. I hope this gift guide will help you, whether you're just looking for a gift for a loved one because you miss them (I sent my Mum presents through lockdown) or maybe you have a birthday coming up.

5 Ways To Be Motivated To Workout At Home

 Ad affiliate throughout - Ad press products featured - Union Jack sports set /

I started lockdown feeling hyped to do home workouts, I impressed myself to be honest as I've always been a real gym bunny, loving my classes at the gym as they inspire me, push me and motivate me so much so I shocked myself for the first few weeks of lockdown, training most days with live workouts and absolutely smashing them. To be honest, I've had no other option so in my mind, I just had to get it done. I always felt a workout wasn't hard enough unless done in the gym but I totally proved myself wrong. If like me, you're now 18+ weeks into no gym and some days lacking the motivation to work out from home, I feel you and I am here for you. One of my most asked questions on Instagram is how do you stay motivated to work out?! So I thought I'd pop a quick blog post together with 5 ways to get motivated to workout at home. I know gyms are soon to re-open but I understand if you have anxieties about going back to enclosed indoor spaces.

I know you probably think I'm crazy publishing a post reviewing a Burberry scarf  in July but we all know that Autumn/Winter items go on sale in Summer and vice versa, it's the way the world works and I noticed it was in the sale this week and have had an influx of messages with questions about the Burberry scarf so I thought I would write this up and answer any Burberry scarf related queries. If you're wanting a designer bargain, you usually have to buy it out of season and store it away for when you want it. A Burberry scarf is an absolute forever, iconic piece so I thought I'd finally get my written review up for you whilst a few of them are on sale at the moment.

It seems lockdown has got everyone even more involved in their self-care and beauty regimes and I'm here for it. I've always been utterly obsessed with skincare, yes I am incredibly loyal to certain brands but I really do think it's all about mixing it up, depending on your skins needs that day or week. There are so many factors that can change how the skin looks or feels: hormones, diet, sleep, stress, weather, aircon! So it really depends on the week to be honest. I thought I'd write a blog post about 5 of the best skin serums right now, these are 5 I am using at the moment and I hope you find this useful. I am so happy with my skin right now!

Growing up I had no idea just how important it is to wear a facial SPF every single day, even in the UK, even if it's cloudy! I used to think just having SPF in my foundation is enough, but it’s not enough as it isn’t spread all over your face evenly. You should be applying an SPF every single day, 30 minutes before you go outside, underneath your make up. Not only does it protect us from skin ageing, but it protects us from skin cancer too. I wanted to talk about the best sun creams particularly for the face as many are different to those for the body. I find facial SPFs are great as they don't make my skin itch, sore or dry and they don't clog my pores making me break out. I hope you enjoy this blog post, the best facial or face SPFs and sun creams to buy.

Hello hello, I hope you are all so well right now. It’s a given that not one of us would choose to be enduring a global pandemic but here we are and we have to get through it somehow. That somehow could mean giving into the grief of it all and letting it get the better of us, or it could mean accepting that we are in it together whether we like it or not and trying to find a way to make the best out of it. The future is bright. We have so much to look forward to. Making the best out of a bad situation is not something anyone wants to do but I have to say throughout this, making the best of things is something I am seeing happen all over the world and it makes me so proud of us as a human race. When we have to dig deep we do and we have the resilience to deal with anything. It's important to remember sunshine always follows the rain! I'm someone who always makes my to do list longer than my arm and always finds a way to keep busy, I'm not saying that's a good thing as I think it's equally as important to stop and rest, however, we all deal with things in our own way. A challenge for me is taking it slowly and doing nothing at all. I have had a lot of messages from people saying they're bored or want some ideas of things to do during this period, so I hope this post will inspire you.

*AUGUST 12TH UPDATE* 20% off extra on top of sale asos

Not gonna lie, asos has always been a fave of mine. It's one of those websites I've grown up with, from the days when they showed you how to copy a celebrities style, to now, one of the biggest retailers of all time. It's exciting and I just love them as a company, I was even lucky enough to visit their factory a few years back and totally fan girled. I spotted they've got a pretty epic sale on so I keep updating this blog post with their latest promo codes and sales (not sponsored, I wish, asos take all my money lol) it was where you got 20% off everything when you spent £100. It was perfect if you already had your eye on something or you were saving for one of the big brand names but now can get 20% off SALE prices today - maybe you just want some comfy clothes or new trainers. Open up, I've put together the best buys. If you were wanting something from asos anyway, you may as well do it with 20% off! Shop asos.
