• 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 [AD]

    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!

    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.…

    Secondhand Style #1 – What an egg-cellent dress

    As I mentioned in this post the majority of my wardrobe has been bought in charity shops, eBay and Depop. As a huge bargain hunter and savvy secondhand searcher, I want to start featuring these more often in my outfit posts. So I’ve decided to begin a little feature called Secondhand Style so you can see all the fab bits and bobs I’ve managed to pick up, and believe me there are loads. I thought there would be no better way to start this off than with my best Depop purchase to date. The White Pepper was one of my favourite…
