Review: Muru Jewellery

Review: Muru Jewellery

I love fashion, but am notoriously picky when it comes to accessories. If my mum wants to buy me a handbag for Christmas, for instance, she’ll ask me to send her a list of ones I do like. It’s a similar story when it comes to jewellery. When an email arrived in my inbox from Muru jewellery I went to have a peek at their site, sceptical about whether there were many pieces I would like. So, what was my verdict? View Post

3 things in 15 minutes to feel more “you”, less “mum”

3 things in 15 minutes to feel more “you”, less “mum”

As wonderful as motherhood is, a lot does change and that takes some adjusting to! I often find myself putting on the same combinations of jeans and t-shirts or jumpers each day. Once I’ve finished work, I slap on some concealer and foundation, quickly put a brush through my hair and rush off to collect Autumn from her childminder. With all the additional things to do in my daily life, I’ve definitely not taken care of myself as much. I’ve been meaning to paint my nails for weeks now, but they’re still bare. Does this sound like you?

It’s so important as mums to give ourselves a bit of self care, in whatever form that comes. This post is about 3 things I  do to feel a bit more like “myself” in 15 minutes and hopefully it will inspire you too! After all, surely 15 minutes is achievable every once in a while? View Post

Review: Esqido Gin & Tonic Lashes

Review: Esqido Gin & Tonic Lashes

I’ve been a big fan of false eyelashes for years now. Occasionally I wear them in the day, but I mostly wear them for a special occasion or if I’m going out somewhere. With some lashes, I feel a little too aware that I’m wearing them and sometimes they look too much or too little. When Esqido approached me to try out some of their lashes, I was intrigued. With celebrity fans including Rihanna and Victoria’s Secret angels including Gigi Hadid, I had to see what all the fuss was about. View Post

Different Jewellery to Suit Every Personality

Different Jewellery to Suit Every Personality

Have you ever wanted to treat someone special with a piece of jewellery but couldn’t decide on what suited their personality? Not everyone likes a pair of earrings and some people are averse to wearing certain precious metals, whether due to specific allergies or personal preference.

There are many styles of jewellery available from organic materials such as wood and fibres to special metals and semi-rare gems such as gold, platinum, rubies and emeralds to name a few. View Post

My Sephora haul from New York City

My Sephora haul from New York City

Over Christmas and New Year, my sister-in-law went on holiday to New York. She asked us if there was anything we wanted. As a make up lover, my first thought was “OMG, SEPHORA!” and I transferred her some money. We used to have a Sephora at Bluewater in Kent, but that closed years ago. It was an amazing smelling shop with red carpets and I live in hope that one day Sephora will come back to the UK. In the meantime, the products my lovely sister-in-law picked me up will have to tide me over! To my amazement, she picked up everything I asked for (except for one thing that was out of stock) AND surprised me with another palette I’d wanted for my birthday! Anyway, that’s enough teasing. Let’s take a peek! View Post
