How To: Save Money

I have had to really focus on not spending anything extra than what I have to since becoming pregnant. I am very aware of the super low income I will be trying to survive off whilst on maternity and all the things that I need to buy for the baby. Therefore, I have been trying and testing different methods to help save some money. This post is a list of things that I have found are quite useful for either saving money generally, or getting yourself a bit of a discount on items without having to completely go without.

Makeup Haul & First Impressions


I haven't bought myself anything for months (apart from a vacuum and other boring items). I am trying desperately to save money, but I also ran out of basically all my makeup whilst doing so. I managed to get myself out of my overdraft so I rewarded myself with purchasing some items (...logic). Kiko had a big sale on (they're a pretty low priced brand anyway) and a £5 off for subscribing so I went a bit mad on their website. I also caved and ended up on the John Lewis website buying a couple of items from Urban Decay, two guesses what I bought? Finally, the lovely guys at Glo Minerals sent me a few of their items, so I thought I would include those within this post as well! I also got the Tarte Concealer (finally!) and a gift set, but they are taking forever to be delivered and I am impatient!

Badass Bloggers That Inspire & Motivate Me


Blogging is a massive industry. In comparison to some, I haven't been writing for long (around a year), however, I have followed bloggers for years and years. There are a few 'stand out' bloggers that I have read their content for years and they continue to inspire me on a daily basis when it comes to my own blog. This is everything from personality, style, photography and content. If you want to know who these 'badass b******' are, then keep on reading...

What I Have Learnt Since Becoming Pregnant...


This post is not just for those who are expecting a baby. I've tried to include some humorous points, some 'please do not say this to your pregnant friend' points and some serious ones. Being pregnant is completely different for each woman. However, a lot of online posts about pregnancy are not my kind of 'thing'. They seem to be either terrifying or a tad on the cheesy side. I thought I would write a post of what I have encountered since being 'up the duff'. I'm not a very serious person so this is my half jokey/half serious take on being pregnant so far.

My Must Have Makeup Products


These are the items that I reach for when I want to look half decent, but not over done. None of these items are new loves, they are firm favourites that I have gone back to time and time again.

Pamper Session with CharlotteRhys UK*



I love a good pamper session, especially on a Sunday before that dreaded Monday rolls in again. My favourite thing to do is have a bubble bath, listen to music and light some candles. So, when I had the opportunity to try some items from Charlotte Rhys, I was very excited!

How to: Plan, Write and Promote a Blog Post


I love reading blogging tips from all the wonderful bloggers out there, both big and small. I don't think the number of followers has much to do with it, I just enjoy seeing the different ways people approach blogging. I thought I would write a post on the process I go through to plan, write and promote my blog posts. I'm not saying this is the 'correct way', it's just my way! Feel free to let me know what you do in the comments below, it may give me some ideas!
