December Favourites ♡

Hey Guys,

What's an end of the month without a good ol' favourites. It was quite hard to pick a few favourites this month because its been a tough month for so many personal reasons. None the less, I've managed to do so. Although the bunch that I've listed are very random and I mean very random, they really don't go together haha, oh well its what I've been loving!

My Christmas Makeup ♡



Hey Guys,

I'm going to keep this post pretty short and sweet because it is Christmas Eve and we've all probably got preparing to do and quite frankly, we need to get our eve on, I'm not sure what I meant by that haha, it did make sense in my head! I thought I would share my Christmas face with you all today, I like to keep it pretty minimal, because I want to spend as much time enjoying Christmas as possible. So I need it done pretty quickly, and like I said before we host Christmas every year and I cook the main, so I need to get in that kitchen asap!

3 Christmas Day Must Haves ♡


Hey Guys,
 
Ah, time for another Christmas post, I'm pretty excited about Christmas, mind you I have been excited since like September, talk about keen! But it's my favourite time of the entire year, I think I love it more than my birthday. It's just the whole atmosphere, it's all festive and warm, I've kinda gone off on one! Right, let's get on with what I must have on Christmas Day! 
 


 
Red lipstick: This is kind of obvious, no? It's the perfect day to wear a red lippie, your surrounded by red tinsel, baubles, basically red is everywhere so it really couldn't be more perfect! I personally like to wear a classic red, nothing bright or over the top, just a simple deep red and of course, I always opt for Rimmel 107, it's a staple in every beauty lovers collection. It's drugstore, pretty long lasting and designed by Kate Moss, what more could one want?
 
Chocolate and lots of it: Christmas is the ultimate pig out period, and trust me when I say I do not hold back on any form of chocolate except dark lol, I haven't quite got my tastebuds around it, even though it's meant to be healthiest! For this time of year in particular, I love Terry's chocolate orange, I've loved it ever since I was a kid! I'm not sure whether they're available around the world but honestly they're soooo good! Plus they contain pure orange oil, ooh yeah I'm getting that 1/5 a day haha!
 
Christmas jumper: I mean how can you not! I love wearing Christmas jumpers in the lead up to the 25th but I always wear my favourite one on the day and because we host Christmas every year I like to be super comfy! 

That's it for todays short post, see you on Thursday!

Chocolate Bowls | Christmas Dessert ♡


Hey Guys,

Right, I know this is the Merely Healthy section and this is pretty much a chocolate dessert but there is a little fruit involved ( from your side ☺) so that's kind of healthy right, haha, lets just go with that. I saw this dessert whilst casually browsing the internet and thought OMG I have to make that so I youtubed it and it honestly didn't seem so difficult. I gave it a go and majorly failed so I learnt from my mistakes and tried to make it again, it didn't go so bad this time! It can get quite messy, so if you do try this recipe out, just be sure of that. I'm pretty sure this will be our Christmas dessert this year!

My Everyday Essentials ♡

Hey Guys,

For todays post, I bring you my everyday essentials, I wanted to write up a winter essentials but I back tracked and thought I'll save that for Jan and plus I've seen a lot of these posts floating around in the blogosphere, so I thought I would give it a go.

MAJOR Beauty Haul + Mini Reviews ♡

Hey Guys,

So, I may have had a little, major splurge in Boots, but to be honest I hadn't been into boots for ages, at least that's what I keep telling myself. But there have been a few things that I've been wanting to try out, so I kind of thought hey I'm here now, let's just do it and got carried away. It's the biggest beauty shop I've done in 19 years of life. Oh wells, I've gotten a post out of it and most of the products haven't been a let down, and instead of this just being a haul, I thought it write mini reviews too.

Outfits Of The Month | November ♡

Hey Guys,

So, I have realised that the fashion segment of the blog has been slightly slacking, I do have a perfect explanation for that ..  nope I really don't! But I have found a solution to give it a little kick start, outfits of the month! I thought I would share my favourite outfit of each week of the month with you guys! Now, I do post OOTDs on Instagram so a few outfits here and there will probably overlap but hey, I ain't no celebrity, I'll be seen in the same outfit more than twice, *hair flick* I feel all sassy now haha. No, but seriously I really like styling what I'm going to wear and clothes like any girl make me happy. I only thought of this idea I think a week into November which is why there's only three outfits and I honestly am in such a rush most days to even think about taking a picture but when it comes to December, I'll be on it! And finally, these pictures are super casual, literally right in front of my bed room mirror because that's the feel I was going with and frankly, no ones home to take a picture of me with a nice background during the day and natural daylight is so bad here in the UK it honestly goes dark at like 2, anyway I'm rambling, let's on with the first outfit. 

Jumper: New Look £10.00
Coat: Topshop £80.00
Jeggings: Dorothy Perkins (Eden) £20.00
Converse: Brought like 5 years ago
Hat: Accessorize £14.00

November Favourites ♡

Hey guys,
 
So as another month comes to end, I bring you another favourites post (I think I wrote that line in the October Favourites, lets just pretend I didn't haha). I love these posts because it rounds up the month for me and I get to share everything that I've been loving. I don't have a lot of favourites but its a mix of everything really.

My Ultimate 'No Makeup Makeup' ♡

Hey Guys,

Quite recently, putting on makeup has been annoying me, I know it's just a phase but I get annoyed at the fact that I put it on most mornings, my initial thought is always 'urgh do I have too'. But after twenty minutes I feel so glad I did it because you all know my skin isn't the best so wearing it gives me a little boost. However, quite recently I've accepted that my skin isn't great and pretty much don't care about it how it looks or how people may perceive it. I feel liberated putting that out there to the world *punches the air*. That's where this post comes into it because you can still see my skin and scares through the concealer and does provide a little coverage; its my current go to look. It's super simple and honestly takes less than 5 minutes. Let's get on with the post before I actually go off on one haha.

10 Reasons Why I Love Blogging ♡

Hey Guys,

So todays post is pretty short and quick and I was hesitant to write it because I only launched my blog late July, so I don't have as much experience as opposed to someone whose had a blog for a year or more. But never the less, I was pretty eager to write it because I really love blogging.

Garnier Micellar Water Review ♡

Hey Guys,

Today I bring you all another review, one that I've wanted to write since I launched this blog but got too excited about publishing other posts so put them first! There was so much hype about the Garnier Micellar Water a few months ago and that's when I brought a bottle and have not stopped using it to initially remove my makeup. And I can hands on heart say I absolutely love it and it really just does the job. I'm so glad that Garnier sell it in a little bottle, that's meant for travelling but I always just buy that instead of the bigger bottle because every time I need a new a bottle, there's always some kind of offer or its a £1 so I'm drawn to buying that!

No Go Zone | Disappointing Products ⛔

Hey Guys,

Today's post is about two products I have purchased that didn't quite live up to their expectations. There's nothing worse as a Beauty lover than hearing or reading about a specific product that has amazing reviews and you getting excited about purchasing it, but completely does the opposite for you, that's the worst. This post, will probably be a major rant so lets get on with it!

Hour By Hour ♡

Hey Guys,
 
So for today's post, I thought I would try something new. Now, I never knew 'Hour By Hour' posts were a thing but after seeing them on a few other blogs, I thought I would try my hand at it because I really enjoyed reading them and satisfying that nosey part of me, which wants to know what someone does throughout the day haha. If you guys know of vlogs, which I pretty sure most of you do ☺, I think these style of posts truly epitomise them, in the sense that vloggers vlog every now and again throughout a day, and an 'Hour By Hour' post, is blogged about one's day through every hour, hopefully that made some sort of sense! Anyway, lets get on with post before I start rambling!

How I Wash My Makeup Brushes ♡

Hey Guys,
 
Is it weird that I like to watch YouTube videos on washing makeup brushes. I just like to gain the idea of finding new and effective ways of washing them because at the end of the day, that thing is going on your face! Now, I aim, I say aim to wash my brushes at least once a week, I never do and its so bad because of all the bacteria etc, so I'm trying to get onto the band wagon of doing it more frequently.
 
You may know that I was a late bloomer to makeup, so I don't have a huge collection of brushes because I don't apply a wide range of makeup to my face, hence not needing the brush required for it. But I know one day it will expand and the task of washing brushes will become even more tiresome and tedious than it is now! I like to follow a particular routine, just because it makes the whole process easier and I feel my brushes are squeaky clean straight after! Lets get on with it ☺

My Earring Collection ♡

Hey Guys,

Today's post is going to be pretty short and pretty much full of pictures. But ever since my earring collection started expanding, I just knew this post had to be done. Early summer, I think it was, where my earring collection began and honestly hasn't stopped. I genuinely cannot leave Topshop, New Look, Dorothy Perkins, or any other shop for that matter without have a browse as the jewellery section. I tend to skim past the necklaces, rings, stay at the bracelets for a few a while and then reach the earrings part, where I can hands on heart say, I can spend up ten minutes there, just admiring all the earrings. What can I say, I'm in my element lol. Hopefully, you get the gist of my very clear earring obsession. I do have other earrings, that have come in packs, but those I brought years ago and probably wouldn't still be stocked, so I decided to leave them out. These are the ones I've brought this summer!



Forever 21: £3.50
 

Also from Forever 21: £3.00
My favourite, River Island: £4.00
 
Ear Cuff, Dorothy Perkins: £3.00

Eclipse shaped ear cuffs, Dorothy Perkins: £6.50

Rose gold ear cuff and stud, Dorothy Perkins: £3.00

I think we've all well and truly witnessed my earring obsession!

October Favourites ♡

Hey Guys,

So as another month ends, I bring you another favourites. I was supposed to post this last Thursday, but then I was kindly nominated for  Liebster Award, so I decided to write that post up a day before and just go with that! There aren't a lot of products or things but I don't think this month would have felt complete without a favourites post!

The Liebster Award ♡

Hey Guys,

I was pretty shocked and excited to find out yesterday morning whilst reading a few comments that I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely Caroline at Caroline vs. World whose blog, by the way I simply adore, its so cute and quirky. Thank you so much for the nomination ♥. I absolutely love reading these style of posts because, essentially you get to know the blogger a little bit more and once they have nominated other bloggers, you have a few more blogs to read and enjoy ☺ It's a little like a chain message in the blogging world, once you have been nominated, you answer the questions given and make 10 more up for the bloggers you nominate to answer, and the chain goes on. I definitely don't want to break the chain, so lets get on with it!

DIY Terrarium ♡

Hey Guys, 

So it's no surprise that I absolutely love flowers and plants, I mean I grow my own vegetables for god sake! And over the past few weeks I've been obsessed with terrariums, if you don't know what they are; they're basically little plants/succulents potted in some sort of container and made to look all fancy and pretty. I don't know where these can be brought, but I know they can be made so I thought I would give it a go! 
I popped into Homebase and brought all the things I needed!

Get Ready With Me | First Day Of Uni ♡

Hey Guys,

So, I had got the idea of writing this post way back in September so I'm super excited to finally be writing and sharing it! I started uni two weeks ago and because I started quite late in the day 13:00 to be exact lol, I would make most of the time I had before I left for the journey.

First Impressions | Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue ♡

Hey Guys,

I think I mentioned that this post would be up soon in my makeup routine post last week! So, ever since this product came out, I've wanted to get my hands on it, because I love Bare Minerals as a brand and I was looking for something new to wear as my base. I wrote this post the very day I properly used it, (its the Bare Minerals Complexion Hydrating Tinted Gel), which was a few weeks ago, but I was eager to get My Makeup Routine ♡ before this post came out! Also, if this post feels like its written in present tense, it is because as the day went on, I made notes of how it felt on my phone. So I've just taken them and written it up more formally, shall we say ☺

No Go Zone | Mineral Magic Powder Review ⛔

Hey Guys,

So todays post, I am relived and excited to write because I get to let off everything I HATE about this product (I warn you now, this entire post is a major rant), but also, I feel slightly disappointed because any beauty lover out there will probably say the same thing, in the sense that we all hate being super excited to purchase a product and then feel extremely let down if it doesn't live up to your expectations. You've built your feelings and excitement up during a certain period and the product just completely disappoints you in every way.

My Makeup Routine ♡

Hey Guys,

If you've read Tuesday's post, you would've known this was coming. This is pretty much what I have been wearing for a few months and it is quite minimal in the sense that I don't use blusher, bronzer or highlighter but its what works for me!

My Mascara Routine ♡

Hey Guys,

Today, I bring you my mascara routine! Mascara is my favourite item of makeup, and if I was stranded on an island and was only allowed to take one item of makeup, without hesitation it would be mascara. I will post my full makeup routine on Thursday, but I thought I would write about this routine separately because whenever I apply makeup I think of it as a completely separate routine for some reason :)

My Evening Skincare Routine ♡

Hey guys,

I don't know about you, but skincare videos and posts are my absolute favourite to watch and read. There's just something in me that gets excited when I know someone's routine, or possibly because skincare is my all time passion ☺. Now, if you're a frequent reader of the blog, you'll be thinking, hmm, this is a evening skincare post but she hasn't told us her morning skincare routine. That's because I haven't written one purely because my morning skincare is so minimal and boring, in the sense that I literally wash my face with the Nip+Fab Glycolic Face Wash and follow up with the Olay Beauty Fluid Moisturiser and whack a little bit of Carmex lip balm and I'm all done! But my evening skincare routine is a little bit more intricate!

September Favourites ♡

Hey Guys,

September, it has gone by pretty quickly, just like the rest of the year has. It has been a month of running round; gathering things needed for uni, really enjoying blogging and planning posts as well as the usual, visiting relatives ☺️  
In the midst of all that I have managed to figure out what I've really been loving this month, whether they are beauty related or just a few miscellaneous and random items.

Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel Review ♡

Hey, Guys
 
I'm just going to get right into writing this post because I'm super excited to write it eeepp!! 
A little background of how I came to buying the product, so for months on end, I had seen so many positive reviews, but was completely hesitant to fork out £28 on a face wash because I had never ever spent that much money on an skincare item. So after doing my research throughout January and onwards, I thought I would finally give it a try and brought it in April.

Pamper Routine | Uni Week ♡

Hey Guys,

So we all need a pamper evening every now and again to revive and refresh ourselves, and everyone needs a little bit of me time. And if you are starting uni again, its a great way to take time out of that stressful 'getting ready for uni' schedule and I can guarantee you that after giving yourself a little pamper you'll be ready to take on the year, hang on, the pamper evening will get you ready for the first day never mind the year! And you might even want to treat yourself to another pamper evening at the end of week, knowing the assignments and exams you have ahead *sigh*.

These products aren't essential; they're just what I like to use. And the best thing about a pamper evening is that you can tailor it your taste, if you hate painting your nails, leave it out, if you want to use a homemade face mask, go ahead. It's your evening!


P.s that's not my hand!

Stationary Haul | Uni Week ♡

Hey Guys,
 
As another academic year approaches, the stationary game gets stronger and all stationary lovers find themselves stocking up on all things stationary and with all the sales and deals on, I for sure couldn't resist. 
The only thing that gets me excited for the beginning of uni is being able to use stationary again. Sad I know haha! Even when I was at school, stationary shopping was the highlight of my holidays.
I still have a few bits and bobs from last year, such as notebooks and folders so I'll continue to use them too!
Okay, I've already exhausted the word 'stationary' now let's get on with the haul! 
I try to purchase inexpensive stationary I.e from the high street because it's what I've grew up with and to be honest it works perfectly well. 
Most of the items are from Wilkinsons and the odd few from other stores.

Quick And Easy Natural Makeup Look | Uni Week ♡

 
Hey Guys,

Okay now that you've read that really long title, we can get on with the post ☺
This is perfect for those wanting a natural, quick look and pretty good for when you're running late, we've all had those late nights and super early lectures! And if the night before you're already worrying about those dark circles, girl, I've got you covered! I timed myself and it honestly takes no less than 10 minutes providing you're in that running late mode where you just want to get everything done.

Back To Uni Week ♡

Hey Guys,

Sundays are not my normal upload days but I thought I would write a quick introductory post explaining the posts that will be up during this week. (14th - 19th September).


      

I wanted to take the plunge with blogging and see what it feels like to post every single day for a week. And with most students either returning or starting uni, what better way to take the plunge than with blogging about posts relating to university. For example, a quick and easy makeup routine, stationary haul etc.

Obviously I don't know when the semester starts for every single university but I know most start mid-end September and a few, like mine start the term early October. So, if you've already started, I hope you can still relate to the posts and if you are yet to start the posts may be of aid to you. Well, hopefully!

Tip ♡

P.s if you're in school or work, a few of the posts may help you too!

ZSL London Zoo | Photo Diary ♡

Hey Guys,
 
If you have already read Tuesday's Post, you would have known this post was coming. I'm just going to get on with this post because it is a long one. I tried to take as many pictures as I could and I was super glad that the sun came out during the day because in the morning we were absolutely freezing and wishing we had worn warm clothing, but once we got into the city, we started regretting not bring sunglasses. I warn you, there are loads of pictures!

OOTD: London Zoo ♡

Hey Guys,

So last Sunday, me and my two best friends paid a visit to ZSL London Zoo. If you've read my 50 Facts About Me post you'll know that it is a tradition to visit the zoo every year. Our summer just doesn't feel complete without paying a visit. I have taken loads of photos of our day out, but I thought I'd save that for Thursday's post. It'll be more of a photo diary than a written post! Seen as since, this year I have a blog and a Fashion section on my blog, I would make most of the scenery and take an OOTD (outfit of the day). I'm still not super comfortable with posing but hey, we've all got to start somewhere!

Summer Favourites 2015 ♡

Hey Guys,

So its coming to the end of summer (not that we got much of a summer in Britain, mother nature has been chucking it down with rain recently) and I thought I'd share the items that I've practically put before everything else in my life because I love them that much. I should have written this post mid summer but I didn't feel as if I had a sufficient amount of favourites and who says they just have to be summer favourites, I'll definitely be using these well into autumn and winter.

My Rimmel Kate Moss Collection ♡

Hey Guys,
 
I'm just going to put it out there, I love Rimmel lipsticks, they are by far my favourite drugstore brand for lip products, especially the Kate Moss collection. The lipsticks are really pigmented and long lasting, not to mention affordable. When the Kate Moss Nude Collection was released it was like someone handing me heaven on a plate; anyone who knows me knows that my favourite colours are Nude and Pink, even more so the shade in between; nudey pink. I dislike bright or barbie pink, I'm more about the soft, pastel pinks. I digress.
 
I went into Boots recently and purchased two shades from the new collection and the classic shade 107, its one of the most wanted Rimmel Lipsticks. Before I started using the lipsticks I thought it would look prettier in a blog picture if they look all brand new, but I have worn them since☺
 
Yes, the shades are similar, what can I say, Nudey pink is my fave colour!

On - Trend Acai Berry Bowl ♡

Hey Guys,

I thought I'd share the recipe of one of my favourite breakfasts, which doesn't have to be eaten as a breakfast; I also like to have it for lunch or as a snack, The Acai Berry Bowl. I've eaten this for quite a while now and since healthy eating and super foods are pretty much on trend, this recipe will fit into that bracket. It takes well under then 3 minutes and there's no fancy cooking involved. Not to mention it contains 3/5 of your five fruits a day, I mean if that's not wining in life, what is!

Acai berries are tiny berries found in the amazon forest and deemed a super food. (We can't get the berries in England but powdered versions are available). They contain amazing nutrients that benefit your body in various ways, such as a crazy amount of antioxidants (brilliant for the skin), a load of fibre, a ton of healthy fats and act as a natural energy boost and when blended with a few sweet fruits, they taste pretty amazing too!

Desk Transformation ♡

Hey Guys,

I wasn't really sure of what I should name this post because its not really a big transformation but it sort of is in a sense because I've changed my desk layout. Anyway, I've been wanting to change the layout of my desk for quite a while because its where I'll spend most of my time when I start uni again, and I wanted to make it pretty and inspirational in a sense so I'll actually be bothered to study.

Before: My desk was pretty bland.

Hey Guys,

I have yet to introduce the fashion section on my blog, so I thought what other way to do then write a post about what's in my bag! Well, I could've done an Outfit Of The Day (OOTD). But I haven't quite mastered the art of a 'blog post pose'. I'll get there one day ☺
