"Thank you for your application but..."


If I had £1 for every time I've received a job rejection email, I would probably be so rich that I would no longer need to find a job. Ok, that may be a bit of an exaggeration. But I've had my fair share of "Thank you for your application but unfortunately you have been unsuccessful" emails. It's gotten to the point where I've received so many rejections that I'm struggling to keep motivated and positive because now I automatically think "What's the point in applying? It'll just be another rejection"...

Valentine's Day Makeup Look


Hey, it's me! In case the blog name confused you, I decided to rebrand from Emma Bought What to Emma Lisa because my blog has started to incorporate more lifestyle/travel posts and I felt like it's previous name limited me to only posting about products I had bought. So, now that's out of the way, today I've got a Valentine's Day makeup look for you. It feels like it's been ages since I've shared a makeup look with you and I was really excited to create this one.

Travel Bucket List

Follow my blog with Bloglovin


These cold, wet, rainy days have got me longing for warmer weather. I've been daydreaming about all of the destinations I want to visit in my lifetime - most of them have weather significantly better than England which is a bonus! So far, I've mainly visited places within Europe, however there are so many places I want to visit further afield so hopefully 2019 will be the year that I tick some of them off of my bucket list.

Sustainable Fashion Brands


Until watching Stacey Dooley Investigates Fashion's Dirty Secrets, I had no idea about the impact that the fashion industry has on the planet; it shocked me to find out that it is the second most polluting industry in the world. Everyone loves a bit of retail therapy and, particularly as a blogger, there's the pressure to keep up with fashion trends by regularly buying new clothes. However, it's important that us as consumers take a step back and reflect on our consumption habits before it's too late. There's recently been a surge in sustainable fashion brands so I've rounded up some of the brands that I've come across and how they're working towards sustainability in the industry.

Goals For 2019


Happy New Year everyone! Apologies for how quiet it has been on my blog recently. I feel like I fell out of love with blogging throughout 2018 - you can see how sparse my blog posts were by scrolling back through it... it won't take you long until you hit the 2017 blog posts! However, I've been feeling inspired recently (could be down to the whole "new year, new me") so I'm determined to try harder with my blog this year - without making it feel like a chore. Therefore, I thought that the best way to keep myself motivated was to write down some goals for 2019 and, by putting my goals out in the open, it'll make me more determined to persevere with them. So, what do I want to achieve in 2019?
