I noticed when I was tidying round the other day that all of my favourite products at the moment are following a super cute orange and peach theme. I tend to leave my favourite products out on the top of my Muji drawers as I’m using them and this little line up appeared! There are tonnes of products here but I wanted to run through some new and old beauties that are right at the top of my routine at the moment.
This post is 100% not sponsored. I bloody wish. Matalan, hit me up babes – we’d be a collab made in heaven, not gonna lie. I’m simply just a homeware junkie, Pinterest addict and we’re in the process of buying our first proper home so as you can expect, I am all about shopping for budget-friendly buys to pimp out our new pad. Yas! Here are 10 of my favourite things that Matalan are stocking at the moment. I dare you to not click add to basket.
We’ve had a snippet of summer recently and it’s got me very excited for some sunshine as I’m sure it has for you guys too. Summer means barbecues, cute white tops, making a bee line for the beer garden after work and of course, upgrading your sunglasses collection. I headed down to Loxley for a lovely bloggers event last week to check out their new sunglasses launch, catch up with some lovely people and meet some new blogger babes too.
What’s your perfect Saturday? Mine is definitely something food and fun based and that’s exactly what the recent Bumble event organised by the gorge Jess was all about. A bunch of us blogger babes headed to Oscar & Rosie’s in Nottingham to create our own pizzas, learn how to chuck the dough about and basically have the best time ever.
For a while, it looked as though spring had finally arrived, following a ridiculously long winter. But, then it went back into hiding, and the grey skies and rain returned. This has left a lot of us feeling a little miserable or even depressed. Many people suffer from seasonal depression as a lack of sunlight and warmth affects their mood and their desire to go outdoors and this extended period of poor weather can start to get to all of us. So, whether you suffer from seasonal affective disorder or you’ve just had enough, it’s important that you find ways to beat the bad weather blues.
Facial sprays are one of those little luxuries that I just love to have in my skincare and beauty routine. They just start or finish off my base so perfectly and make my skin feel really comfortable and fresh. I have three favourites that are in my routine at the moment and they all have different uses so I wanted to share them with you babes.
Of all the cities in Canada, the one that you can’t go through life without visiting at least once is Toronto. It’s a social and artistic hub, brimming with life and endless things for you to spend your time doing. It’s the kind of place that you’ll be glad you spent time in, and when your trip draws to a close, you probably won’t be too keen to leave it behind. But what should you spend your time doing and seeing when you’re there? It’s time to find out, so read on.
Personally, I don’t think I’ve ever been as thankful for a trend than I have for self care. I’m going to put it out there and say that I do think it is a trend but that I definitely hope that it moulds its way into our lives. Relaxing has, fortunately for all of our sanities, become really popular and much more of a ‘thing’ that we all focus on. Brands are encouraging it, we’re buying more products that are helping us to indulge and we’re not feeling guilty about taking time off anymore.
You guys might have seen some fun times I was having at the beginning of March with McArthurGlen Designer Outlets on a little video shoot and some Spring Summer trend picks. I was working with some awesome other bloggers from the other regions where McArthurGlen have their shopping outlets – I was repping for East Midlands in case you hadn’t guessed.
Sleep is a funny thing. I think we forget how important it is and how much we need it until we have a bad night’s sleep. Then, all hell breaks loose and the day ahead can be a struggle. I’m definitely in this camp – I forget how much I need sleep until I have a poor night. I don’t sleep well when I’m stressed or have things on my mind so I always find that focusing on my evening routine can really help me unwind and relax. So, if you’re like me and struggle with the ol’ switch off then these three tips might help!
