Visiting London

Earlier this week I went to London for a few days to visit the Harry Potter Studios and see some other sights. I had been wanting to go to the Harry Potter Studios for ages and what better time to go than when all of the Christmas props are out! Whilst in London, I also visited the Sky Garden, which gave incredible views of London - it's free entry and I would recommend doing this if you ever get the chance. Borough Market had a massive selection of food (it took about 20 minutes to decide what to eat!) and I tried a Curly Whirly from Konditor & Cook, which is my new favourite thing and I'm definitely going to try baking this myself. On my final evening I went to Covent Garden to have a look round some of the shops and see the pretty Christmas decorations. This post is going to be quite photo-heavy as I have loads of photos that I want to share with you! Are you visiting London over Christmas?

November Favourites

I haven't been using very many new products this month so this is going to be quite a short post. Also, I'm undecided as to whether I'm going to carry on with the monthly favourites posts next year - I'm considering doing seasonal favourites posts instead. What would you prefer?

Lush Christmas Haul

Visiting Lush around Christmas has become a tradition of mine; I love using Lush products all year round but I get particularly excited when they release their Christmas range. This year I thought I would try some of the products that I haven't tried before.

Vampire Halloween Makeup

For Halloween, I'm a lot more interested in what I'm going to do for my makeup than what costume I'm going to wear. I came across this Halloween makeup look on Leyla Rose's Youtube Channel and knew straight away that this was what I wanted to recreate for Halloween. I used a few different makeup products to Leyla but I followed the same sort of method.

Autumnal Lipsticks and Nail Polishes

From top to bottom: MAC Mocha, MAC Twig, Rimmel 128 Starry-Eyed, NYX SMLC 10 Monte Carlo
Autumnal makeup is my favourite because you can play around with bold colours that just aren't acceptable in Spring and Summer. Today I thought I would share with you some of my favourite lipsticks and nail polishes to wear in Autumn.

September Favourites

Sorry for such a belated monthly favourites post - it won't be long till I'm posting about my October favourites! If you follow me on Twitter, then you would of seen that the wifi wasn't working properly in my new house for the first three weeks, which completely ruined my blogging schedule. Thankfully the wifi's fixed now so I can start posting weekly again. Anyway, lets get on with my September favourites...

Freshers University Advice

Over the next few weeks I'm sure many of you will be starting the next chapter of your lives; university. Heading to university is an exciting time - full of independence and opportunities - but it can also be a daunting time for many freshers. Next week I will be going back to university for my second year and I feel like I've learnt a thing or two along the way to share with you so you can make the most of first year.

Eyebrow Routine

With inspiration from Into The Gloss, I was encouraged to team up with them to write a post about my eyebrow routine and products. I was already planning on sharing this with you guys so the idea couldn't have come at a better time!

Three Nights In Brighton

Sorry for the overload of photos! Last week my family and I headed to Brighton for a few nights as none of us had been there before. Luckily, the weather was on our side and we managed to spend all three days on the beach. We also visited the Marina (which had an amazing selection of restaurants), went to the Pier, walked through The Lanes, and had a go on the British Airways i360. I hope you're all having a good summer. Are you going away anywhere?

Chocolate Orange Cheesecake

Tanya Burr is a Youtuber that I've been watching for years, so when she released her cookbook Tanya Bakes of course I was going to buy it! I've been trying lots of the recipes lately and my favourite one so far is the Chocolate Orange Cheesecake...

Caseapp Phone Case and Laptop Skin

The lovely Emilia from Caseapp contacted me a few weeks ago to ask if I would like to do a blog post on some of their products. This opportunity couldn't of come at a better time because I managed to smash my previous phone case not that long ago. I had a quick scroll through the Caseapp website before deciding that this was a brand I wanted to share with you guys.

Pink Toned Makeup

Due to working lots lately, I haven't had a excuse to apply makeup - hence this post!

What's in my hand luggage?

With a lot of you going on holiday over the summer, I thought this would be the perfect time to share with you what I take in my hand luggage on flights. This usually varies slightly depending on whether I'm going on a long-haul or short-haul flight, so I've focused this post towards a short-haul flight because that's what I'll be taking this summer.

Lemon Cupcakes

Lately, I've been doing lots of baking in my spare time. I usually stick to chocolate or vanilla cupcakes so I thought I would try something different and bake lemon cupcakes instead. The recipe I followed was from the Primrose Bakery Cupcakes book.

June Favourites

Another month has flown by - I've been so busy working and trying not to spend my money so I don't have many favourites this month. However, I will still share with you what I have been loving and I apologise for this being such a short post.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams

NYX Cosmetics are taking the UK by storm at the moment. When I (finally) saw an NYX counter in my local Boots I got a bit too excited and picked up as many of their products that I could/as many as I could justify spending my money on! I mainly bought the Soft Matte Lip Creams because I've seen lots of other bloggers raving about these ones.

Everyday Summer Makeup

I have been planning on posting an everyday summer makeup look for a while now and I've finally got round to it! During the summer I prefer to go for a more minimalistic look because I can't handle a full face of makeup in hot weather (although this isn't usually an issue in England!).

Chocolate-Topped Banana Cake

For my brother's birthday last week I baked him a chocolate-topped banana cake - using a Nigella Lawson recipe. The cake was a hit with my family so I thought that I would share the recipe with you.
