Lush Festive Blogger Night | Crawley

Ever since I was invited to the Lush event last year, it’s safe to say my opinion about Lush has definitely changed! I used to find there was too much choice, but now I know what I like and don’t like, I’m happy to spend a good half hour browsing for new products!

I was thrilled to get an invite to this year’s Lush event in Crawley; not only to get to see the new products coming out, but also to spend some time with some of my blogging faves; Katie, Charlie, Tania and Rosie 🙂

Instamatte | Smashbox

I absolutely love this time of year because it means I can start wearing a dark lip again and not look like a total weirdo.

The only issue I have, is that most of my favourite dark lips aren’t matte lipsticks, so I always end up smudging them or having to reapply them a lot throughout the day. (Generally though, I usually get so frustrated that I go to the toilets and rub the bloody lipsticks off, until it looks like I’ve been punched in the mouth!!)

Songmics* Makeup Storage Box

So I’ve previously written about my makeup storage, which you can read here, if you’ve not read it before. This was all going well and fine, until I decided to tip my lipsticks out onto my bed to try and find a specific one, not realising that the lid of one of my lipsticks had fallen off.

Cue hot pink lipstick all over the light grey duvet cover and over all my other lipsticks. Cleaning that mess up is half an hour I’m never going to get back!!

Finding Time To Relax

Working a full-on 9 to 5 job and then going home to make dinner, do some housework and try to find some time to blog as well, it’s sometimes really hard to switch off and have some me time.

But now I have some beautiful products to help me wind down in the evenings and they just help to make life that little bit easier 🙂

My Five Favourite Easy Hairstyles

There’s nothing worse in the summer than making an effort with your hair, only for the weather to play havoc with your locks. My hair used to go a bit Monica in the humidity, but now I find it just goes limp and lifeless, I wonder if that happens as you get older? 🙁

To stop my hair from looking boring and flat this summer, I’ve been using the John Frieda Luxurious Volume shampoo, Luxurious Volume conditioner and the Luxurious Volume in-shower treatment* to help my hair out.

I’ve also been experimenting a bit more with different looks, rather than just shoving it in a ponytail, so here are my top easy hairstyles 🙂

August Advertiser 2017

August really has been a ridiculously exciting month for me. I started a new job that I’m absolutely loving, J and I took a couple of trips to IKEA to buy some new furniture and bits for the house (most of which we’ve put up already), I’ve caught up with loads of friends and also celebrated my birthday!! The beginning of August also saw the start of me offering business advertising on the blog, so I’m going to introduce my fabulous August advertiser!

Staying Safe In The Sun

This summer I’ve been in the garden quite a lot. Unfortunately not sunbathing and relaxing, but digging holes and building walls. Oh, and that one day where me, J and my brother attempted to have a BBQ and it wouldn’t stop spitting with rain but we stayed out anyway because we’re quintessentially British 😀

It’s also been a really weird couple of weeks where the weather has been really humid with loads of cloud and not much actual sunshine.
