Girls Night In – Hoar Cross Hall

  Hoar Cross Hall Last month I was lucky enough to head down to Hoar Cross Hall with Hannah, Helen and Chloe to experience the girls night in package and enjoy a little bit of pampering. This was my first trip to a Spa, shocking I know. So I was really excited to see what all the fuss was about – and I can assure you I was not disappointed. Hoar Cross Hall is a Luxury Spa Resort and Hotel based in Burton-Upon-Trent in Staffordshire. Because of this, we set off quite early as we expected the drive down to take about 3 and a half hours, unfortunately, due…

CarnLIVal – Hope Street Hotel Liverpool

Last month Yasmina and I jumped on a train and travelled down to Liverpool for the CarnLIVal event hosted by Katy and Sam. This is the first time I’ve ventured to a different city for a blogger event so was a little nervous, but I can safely say the 5.30am start and 7 hours of my day spent on a train were totally worth it. I think one of the main reasons I decided to make the trip was because I’m feeling quite disconnected with the local blogging community. With an influx of fake followers, Instagram bots and bitchy cliques, it doesn’t…

Yorkshire Linen Co: How to Refresh Your Bedroom on a Budget

As you may know, we recently changed our bedroom around a little. Our flat has two bedrooms and we previously had the larger one as our bedroom and the smaller as our office. But having house/cat sat for a neighbour a while ago I saw how she had the smaller room as her bedroom, and it looked super cosy. So we decided to have a move around and create a cosy peaceful little room to sleep. We kept the wardrobes in the larger room,  as I used to do my hair and makeup in the office anyway, so it just…

Feeling Fuchsia: Finally embracing colour in my wardrobe

These photos were taken by Yasmina on our recent trip to Liverpool for the CarnLIVal event. We were a little early for the event so decided to take advantage of the gorgeous Liverpool Philharmonic Hall on Hope Street. I must say this is probably the most public place I’ve ever taken photos as I usually hide down a quiet side street. But I really pushed myself to stand in the middle of a fairly busy street of an unknown city and I really think they paid off! Top: Primark (similar) Trousers: New Look Shoes: Matalan Handbag: Primark (similar) Watch – Rosefield* I think these…

Finally Trying Colourpop.

If you’re like me you would have been over the moon when Colourpop was finally available for delivery to the UK. So a little while ago myself, Chloe, Helen and Amy all took advantage of the deal for free UK shipping and shared a delivery, this helped split the cost of customs which was about £20. After many an hour scouring the inter-web looking at swatches I finally decided on three shades of their liquid lipsticks to try, Creeper, Tulle and Avenue. Firstly the one thing I noticed was the colours in the tubes looked different to what I was expecting.…
