Wardrobe Essentials

Bag, £10-Primark 
Boots, £20 (in sale)-Topshop

There's some things in your wardrobe that are just essential, for me it's a good pair of boots and a backpack. Walking to and from uni every day means I need some waterproof, comfortable shoes and a bag I can carry my laptop in, which is what makes these two perfect for me.


Macadamia Deep Repair Masque

Deep Repair Masque*, £27.99 (here)

Macadamia natural oil is a brand I've heard some amazing things about. I've tried one of their products before, and unfortunately it just really didn't work for me! Luckily, this one does, it's a hair mask that you pop on after shampooing, leave for 5-10 minutes, then rinse off.


Bliss Fat Girl Slim

Bliss Fat Girl Slim*, £29.50 (here)

I've heard lots of good things about Bliss in the past, in fact, one of my Mum's friends was a big fan of theirs, so even from a young age I was intrigued! The fat girl slim cream is kind of a cult favourite, it's one that I'm sure the majority of women have heard of. It claims to make skin look and feel firmer and more toned, now although I've got no cellulite to reduce, I was interested to see if it would leave my skin feeling more toned.


Zuzka Natural Skincare

Zuzka Organic Precious Oil*-£18 (here)

Since I started using more natural and organic products for my skincare regime, I've noticed a real difference in the appearance of my skin. So, I was really excited when Zuzka sent me over their precious oil for oily/problematic skin to try out. Using facial oils to combat oily skin initially seems a bit ironic, but it really does work!


Taking a break from YouTube

Unfortunately, I think I'm going to have to take a break form making videos right now! I'm getting into the final few weeks of this term, and as it's my final year I just really don't have any spare time to make them. I've got three pieces of coursework as well as my dissertation to work on right now, and while keeping up with blogging is difficult but doable, making videos just really isn't!


Laura Oakes and Ron English Press Days

Laura Oakes for Debenhams

Slap on the wrist for me for not writing this up sooner! I went to a couple of press events when I was back home two weeks ago, and I've been so busy with uni work I completely forgot to write a post about them. First up I went to the Laura Oakes event at Debenhams press office then I headed down to Shoreditch to hear Ron English talk about his art and see the mural he painted at BOXPARK.


Candy Kittens||Possibly The Best Sweets Ever!

Candy Kittens*-£3 each 

I was invited to a Candy Kittens tea party a week ago, and unfortunately I couldn't make it! Luckily, the girls in the office sent me a box full of their sweet treats, and I have to say I'm really impressed. It's easy to dismiss the brand and see it as just a gimmick, but after learning a bit more about them and trying them out for myself, I have to admit I'm sold.


Roller Lash||Is it worth the price tag?

Roller Lash-£19.50 

As you're probably well aware, the beauty blogging community has been whipped into a bit of a frenzy over the latest Benefit release-a curling mascara. When I first heard about it, I was pretty excited myself! I love adding volume and curl to my lashes, and the plastic curved wand looked right up my street, so like every good blogger I bought myself a copy of Elle and set to work testing it out.


Lilash Eyelash Growth Serum

LiLash Growth Serum*-£52.41 (here)

I've always been lucky enough to have fairly dark, long and curled lashes, as you'll see in the photos below, so I'm typically sceptical of if lash serums will really make a difference to them. I've tried out the LiLash growth serum for a full month now, so I'm ready to share my results, and unfortunately for me, there's very few!


Blue Vanilla Polo

Yes, I stood outside in the freezing cold to take these photos, and it's surprisingly hard to get a good photo when you desperately want to be inside in the warm! I really love the high wasited, cropped polo look, and this is definitely something I would wear out clubbing with my friends or to a event. This polo is really lovely, it's got shimmery red flecks to it and looks great with a strapless black bra underneath (I forgot to pack one for my trip home, when I took these photos, oops...)
