Late to the NYX party

A beauty bloggers trip to London isn't complete without a, 'I don't need anything but I want to browse Selfridges beauty department'. I had seen all over our faithful friend social media so much hype on these lip creams. NYX as a brand is so affordable and of a good quality. It would of been rude to not have bought some, right?


The lip creams are so great for something to the have in your bag and reach for in times when you need that pop of colour. They're soft, creamy and dry completely matte. When I say matte I don't mean unbearably uncomfortable to wear, can tell you've got something on matte. Strangely, I found the darker shade to be slightly more comfortable to wear than the light one. I found that the lighter one, after time went quite patchy and a tad bitty around the edges. Chucking on a second coat over the top as soon as you realise this works wonders and goes straight back to looking lovely and fresh.



The face power is really fine and really nice …

Effortless Sloppy Sunday OOTD

Being comfortable is a necessity for me when it comes to fashion, and especially on Sundays. I really like the whole smart trouser and trainer combo (mixing smart with casual) and think it's just a great contrasting get up.
I am normally styling up outfits like this for those little trips into town for coffee and a mooch around, and an over the shoulder bag is a perfect starting point. Love a good tan accessory and this is the perfect size to carry around your essentials, IE , phone and purse. Although it was sunny, it was pretty nippy so a lightweight jumper was the ideal layer to chuck over my v-neck top. 
I'm a bit of a sucker for trends and find myself searching the relevant hash tags as soon as a new trend hits the fashion and blogging world. The whole blush pink is still everywhere and long for it to suit me, but it really doesn't (which I'm genuinely gutted about). When I spotted this pale pink jumper in H&M I tried it on straight away and was so happy with i…

A Sunday well spent, brings a week of content

The fear really does set in on the approach to the end of the half term, evaluating whether or not you've used the time wisely. With this thought lurking in the back of my mind a trip to the seaside to enjoy the last of my spare time was on the cards, heading to the two B's, Brighton and Broadstairs.

Spending the whole day Friday in Brighton was nice, however the weather wasn't on our side. A good few coffee stops to hide away from the non stop rain was broken up with seeing friends and family, which is always a heart warmer and incredibly fulfilling. I had three delicious coffees in and am actually considering doing a Brighton coffee stop post as there's some great places you MUST try as a coffee lover.


If you're ever in Canterbury and am into the healthy way of eating, then you must take a visit to Kitch. A weekend isn't the same without my little trip for a yummy vegan brunch and some bliss balls to take home. They're very much the same as som…

Reminiscing over some Easter treats

I'm pretty sure I spent the majority of the Easter weekend in the kitchen baking which I'm pretty happy about. Even though I'm dairy free and gluten free I really enjoy making things for others to eat. This means some of these baked treats aren't freefrom (which I'll label clearly). 

This major baking session didn't come out of the blue, it was spurred on by Zoe who put up an Easter treats video a few days ago. Minding my own business the other evening I watched it as I brushed my teeth and decided then and there that Easter weekend was going to be spent baking. 

The first treat I made were these Mini Confetti Meringues. I made these gluten and dairy free by using Vitalife dairy free butter and dark chocolate that contains no dairy or wheat. As they're small they're great for bite sized treats, but do still take an hour to bake in the oven. You can use whatever sprinkles you want, but if you are dairy free or gluten free make sure to read the labels!
