The Best Beauty Products Of 2019

Ad gifted PR products featured throughout (I have worked with some of these brands previously but this post is not sponsored) - Ad affiliate links used throughout - 

One of my favourite blog posts to write (albeit a mammoth task hehe) is my yearly beauty round up. I adore beauty products and I'm grateful I've been able to trial out so many incredible brands over the last few years. I have my favourite brands and there are always products that stick in my make up bag or bathroom shelf year after year (I'd recommend keeping an eye on my vlogs and the beauty section of my blog to see what I'm using and loving throughout the year) but then, there are newbies that creep their way into my life too. I wanted to write my 2019 beauty favourites blog post so you can see what beauty products are worth the money and which products I adored and grabbed over and over again over the last year, many, coming with me into 2020! As a beauty lover, I think it's so important to celebrate and rave about the brands I used the most throughout the year so let's do this. Let's go!

New York fashion outfit

Heading to New York for the first time? The 10th time? The 2nd time? It doesn't matter if it's your first or 10th, there will always be something new to see and do in New York. They say you could live there for 10 years and eat out 3x a day and still not get through all the new restaurants in New York! I thought it was about time I wrote an updated New York travel guide, with the best things to see and do in New York in one easy place. I've done all the hard work so you don't have to and you can just enjoy your trip, it can be quite stressful trying to cram in the best restaurants and things to do whilst trying to have a holiday on top. I'm always blown away with how many messages I get on Instagram (@emshelx) telling me you guys have based your trips on mine, I'm grateful to hear you trust in my recommendations. I already wrote a New York Guide and updated it after every visit but I thought it was time to bring all my New York knowledge into a new blog post, so here it is, this is my new hub for all things New York, whether you're wondering what time is the best time to visit New York, what area is the best area to say in when visiting New York or you're just wondering what things you should see and do in New York, this is for you. Get comfy, get this bookmarked, share it with your nearest and dearest and let's talk about the best things to see and do in New York.  Here's everything you need to know for your trip to New York (including where to get the BEST PIZZA in New York and where to get the best brunch in New York and the best restaurants in New York ha). Let's do this.

Edited using Ems Presets / jumper online here - Ad affiliate links used throughout 

As most of you will probably know by now, I adore New York. I feel very lucky that I've visited many many times now and actually one day, I would love to call it home for a little while. It would be a dream come true. I feel like I wrote my huge New York city travel guide a while back, then wrote my guide to the best pizza in New York and shortly after followed with the best places for breakfast and brunch in New York. I'm asked about the best places to eat in New York on a daily basis so I thought it only made sense to write an updated blog post with my guide to the best restaurants in New York. If you follow me on Instagram you'll know I take my food very seriously and do A LOT of research and cross checking before I try out any restaurant so you can trust this guide. Remember, you could live in New York for 10 years and still not eat at every single restaurant, it really is the foodie capital of the world, there are so many places I still need to try and add to this list. So here it is, my guide to the best places to eat in New York and all of my favourite restaurants for lunch and dinner.

8 Ways to Motivate Yourself to Workout This Year

 Yellow swimsuit Ad affiliate used throughout - 

Ah January, I've missed you. The road to warmer months is here... If you watched my 20 goals for 2020 video, you'll probably know that I actually don't mind January, it gets a bad rep as the worst month, but for me it's a nice quiet month and one where I can re-energise, get myself organised and honestly, it always makes me feel inspired. It's a chance to start fresh and start new habits. I'm one big cliche but 'New Year New Me', sits well with me. It's your excuse to start fresh so why not take it? On Instagram I'm often asked how I get motivated to work out, so as I sit here 3x carrot cake muffins down (no-one is perfect), I thought it was time to give you 8 ways to be motivated with your workouts this year. If you find this helpful, please do share it!
