My Halloween Look

Hi Guys,

Halloween is one oy favourite holidays of the year as I love all things creepy and I like to think of myself a little edgy at times.

This year I dressed up as Caroline from the vampire diaries. She’s organised, confident, a great group leader, sassy, smart, gorgeous and occasionally edgy! I can try and pull that off right?!

The perfect girls night in

Hi guys,

I don’t know about you but I haven’t had a sleepover or a movie night in with the girls in ages. Me and my group of friends often go out clubbing, to gigs, shopping or out for lunch. I haven’t had a sleepover with a Disney movie, chocolates and face masks in a long time and I miss that. You are never too old for Disney!

This blog post is all about how to achieve the best night in and sleepover with your girlfriends. Just like the good old times with chocolates, face masks and gossip about boys!


Step one: Get in your pyjamas and apply a face mask

This is the best way to start your girly slumber evening. Pampering is always a treat and it’s even better when shared with a friend.

I am wearing Lush’s coffee face mask in the above picture. The mask smells strongly and deliciously of coffee and it claims to detox and exfoliate your skin. My friend Kayleigh  (Featured in the image below) got me this mask because she knows that I’m a total coffee addict. If you’re a coffee addict like me then you can get the mask HERE from Lush at an affordable price!

Step two: Music

Whilst the face masks sets I like to set the scene and listen to music whilst I catch up with my girlfriends. I am lucky enough to have a Bose speaker which my Dad kindly got me as a gift. It was a very lovely present for working hard and moving into my flat.

Bose produce very high-quality speakers at a premium cost but I can guarantee you that Bose are well worth the cost. You can get this exact speaker from places like Currys, John Lewis and Amazon.

I made a playlist especially for my girls night in that you too can follow and listen to. This playlist includes some girly hits such as “Run the world – Beyonce“, “We got the world – Icona Pop“, “Love Yourself – Justin Biber” and many more girly top hits.

Go check it out and let me know what you think of it! I’m adding to the playlist as I go along and find more tunes!

Step three: Chocolates

You can’t have a girly night in without some junk food. I just love Cadburys chocolate over Ice cream and crisps any day – sugar all the way! This Cadburys selection box is the perfect treat for a sleepover as there is something for everyone to enjoy!

Who doesn’t love a good chocolate selection box?

Step four: Disney Movie

The fourth and final step after removing your face mask and making a start on the yummy chocolate selection is to snuggle up in bed with candles and fairy lights and watch a Disney Movie.

My favourite Disney movie has to be Tangled. I can relate so much to Rapunzel in the sense that she has a creative and shy personality. I’m totally in love with Flynn or as his real name is Eugene and Pascal totally reminds me of my friend Amy – Sorry Amy!!

Autumn/Winter pamper routine

Hi Guys,

I haven’t done a routine blog post before and seeing as Autumn is my favourite time to get cosy and motivated I thought that I would share with you my Sunday routine.

This routine helps me to get prepared for the week ahead and enjoy some cosy pampering too!


Sunday:

Time for some pampering: I like to start off my Sunday by having a bubble bath and taking some time to pamper my skin, body and mind. A bubble bath really helps me with this as I like to lay in the bath with a face mask, book and soothing scents.

Bath time is the time where I like to reflect on this week positives and negatives, detox my skin and prepare my body and mind for the week ahead.

Skincare: When it comes to my skincare in Autumn/Winter I like to use a lot of moisturising products. At the moment I’m loving the Moisture Bomb moisturiser from Garnier alongside with a lip balm from The Body Shop!

Early Night: Before bed, I like to apply some essentials. This includes lip balm, hand cream and a pillow spray. Recently I’m loving The Body Shop’s NEW Pumpkin Spiced Lattee. It’s the perfect deep nourishing and spicy smelling hand cream!

Lip balm is another key essential for me in winter as my skin dries out so much at this time of year sadly! EOS lip balms are a great one to keep your lips soft and plump!

Time for bed: I am always a granny when it comes to my sleep. I like going to bed early and getting as much sleep as I can. I am definitely not a night owl and I especially enjoy an early night on Sunday to make sure that I am ready for the week ahead.


See you next Sunday for a new blog post.

St. Kitt’s Herbery Review

Hi Guys,

If you’ve been following my social media then you will know that I was in Cornwall a few weeks ago enjoying the beautiful scenic walks, hunting down the Poldark cast and enjoying some retail therapy.

It feels like forever ago now that I’m back at university in my final year working hard!

ST Kitts Herbery is one of my favourite shops in Cornwall. You can find anything from herbal migraine remedies to delicious and unique chocolates. The prices are mid-range but offer high-quality products and packaging.  The staff are very friendly and helpful.  The shop is also easily found on a satnav.

My Purchases and Review:

 Lavander Oil: A migraine and stress relief

I am very unlucky when it comes to getting regular migraines and I’ve found that this helps massively with releasing a migraine before or once it comes on.

Lavander is also a very relaxing and soothing scent that helps with anxiety, stress and panic attacks. All of which I personally struggle with occasionally alongside my intensive two-year marketing degree.

 

Facial Exfoliator: A natural exfoliant your skin

In terms of the facial exfoliator, I found both the texture and ingredients to be very gentle to my sensitive skin.

The exfoliation gel comes out as a light green colour with small black exfoliating beads. The gel has an oily and moisturising gel feel to it. Once washed off the exfoliant leaves a moisturised feel to your skin. The scent is very herbal but in my opinion non-offensive and not too highly scented either.

Body wash and conditioner: Rosemary and bergamot

When it comes to body wash I am not too fussy. I will use anything nicely scented and this body wash did not disappoint. It smells very relaxing and fresh which Is perfect for a nice warm shower in the evening before bed.

As for the body conditioner again it has a lovely warming scent and sinks in quickly. I found it to be very nourishing on my skin which is very dry at this time of year.


I would highly recommend these products if you are every lucky enough to visit both Cornwall and St Kitts Herbery. I am a huge advocate or natural products that aren’t tested on animals. I like to help small business where and when I can!


See you next Sunday at 6pm for a new blog post!
