I’ve always thought that mismatched, crazy Christmas trees have so much more personality that perfect decorated, stuck to a colour theme trees. This post is short and sweet today but I just had to share the cutest Harrods Christmas decorations that I’ve added to my tree this year. I mean, how cute is Hugh the bear in ornament form? I’m also 100% obsessed with the sparkly tartan beauty and the purple, ivory and gold tear drop shaped bauble.
When shopping with my bestie this weekend we were looking for a lipstick for her and I introduced her to the world of long-lasting liquid lipsticks, something she hadn’t tried before so I thought I’d put together a little post all about how to find the perfect lipstick, from shade to formula and everything in between.
Is your subscription box addiction getting the better of you? Never mind! Here’s a new one that you need to know about! Bodymonth is the mother of all subscription boxes and it’s packed full of things that you will actually use and need. Instead of randomly coloured eyeshadows and teeny tiny lipstick samples, Bodymonth is packed full of body care and beauty products that we’re all always running out of or forgetting to buy. It’s super useful.
Shopping for the ‘rents can be tricky at Christmas but over the years I like to think that I’m getting better. Here are a few of my favourite picks and ideas for the main people in our lives! From beauty to bookmarks, I’ve got it covered.
Pressies For Mums
If you’re mum is a beauty and skincare junkie then she’s probably pretty easy to buy for and Christmas can be a great time to really treat her! I may or may not have already picked up the beautiful Clarins Festive Eyeshadow Palette which is a glorious palette of 10 ultra-soft eyeshadows in warm, nude shades in three different textures and finishes. Every woman needs a stunning eyeshadow palette in her life and this is one of the best things on the market right now in my opinion.
Christmas is well and truly on its way and it’s time to start thinking about gifts if you haven’t already. Who am I kidding, we’ve been thinking about gifts since September, right? I have anyway. I’ve already done a couple of wintery and gift-themed posts but this one feels really festive!
I’ll admit it, I’m one of those people that usually takes a picture of something I’ve ordered in a restaurant or a cafe before I eat it. I just want to remember how good it was and of course, I love to Instagram it. I’ve collaborated with The Furniture Market to put together a guide of all things Instagram from angles to flat lays, here’s some of my best tips for taking sweet Instagram food shots!
I’m always on the look out for tasty places for coffee, breakfast and brunch and when I discovered Bold Street Coffee in Liverpool it fast became my favourite place in the city. Hands down! I mean, I loved Slim’s Pork Chop Express for our evening meal but Bold Street Coffee was so good we had breakfast there twice in two days. I just couldn’t get enough of those scrambled eggs and bacon.
Winter is well and truly here and our minimalist bedroom can feel a little ‘cold’ as we haven’t quite finished our decorating and styling in there. I’ve taken the opportunity to have a little online shop around and pick some pieces that I’d like to add!
First up, the Miss Etoile Closed Eyes Cushion is super cute and would add some personality to the room. Some more personality-adders are prints and we don’t have any yet up in our room. This Wimbledon Print and Michelle Collins Mountain Print, both from John Lewis are so pretty, I love the colours.
If your bathroom isn’t a space that you’re in love with, then that’s got to change. How can you possibly relax and unwind in a space that you don’t love? You can’t! So, if you’ve fallen out of love with the design and decor of your bathroom, it’s imperative that you do something about it.
