The Perfect Grey Bag: Featuring KoKo Couture*


I am a monochrome girl, through and through. I very rarely wear colour and all my bags (bar one beige one), are black. The lovely guys over and KoKo Couture contacted me to see whether I wanted to review one of their handbags. Being the massive handbag fan that I am, I jumped at the opportunity.

Sunday Round Up


Today's a chatty post as I felt like writing something more laid back. The last couple of weeks have felt super grown up. I had a week off of work to do an intensive driving course, and I passed!

How I Got 1000 Blog Followers In 6 Months



I am not claiming that my blog is the most popular thing in the planet, in fact, it's a relatively small fish in a big pond. However, my blog has grown from 100 followers to over 1000 in around 6 months.  This isn't something that I expected, and I definitely thought it would take a lot longer to hit quadruple figures. I am very proud of my blog and although there has been some, lets say, 'critics', it's something I really enjoy. I've always loved to write, I just never liked being told what to write about and how it would be deemed as successful (aka, school grading). 

This post is based on what I did to get to this point in my blog. You may have a lot more followers than me, or a lot less, numbers aren't everything. However, this may just spark a, 'oh I might try that', moment for you. I suppose this is also for me, a way to remind myself of what to keep on top of and how to help grow this platform further.

Anastasia Beverly Hills: Modern Renaissance Review / Swatches


I finally have it. I have been after this palette since it came out. But, living in England means that getting hold of many 'cult' products, often proves to be very difficult. I considered shipping it from the US and paying the charges but it worked out pretty pricey and it was still out of stock a lot of the time. I went to Los Angeles in February this year and dragged everyone to all the stores I could think of that stock it, still with no luck. However, Anastasia Beverly Hills has launched a UK website, which I squealed out loud about. I wanted to get a few liquid lipsticks, but they were out of stock, however, this bad boy was in stock. I purchased it without even thinking, and I do not regret it. Keep reading to see the modern renaissance palette review with swatches

Favourites of 2016


I tried to narrow down my favourites from 2016, I didn't really do that well, so this might be quite a long post. Saying this, a lot of items were stand out favourites for me so, it didn't feel right to leave them out just to shorten the post! So, grab a cuppa tea and continue on to find out what my 'go to' items for 2016 were!

Goals For 2017 / New Years Resolutions


I use the term, 'resolutions' loosely. I've never been one to make New Years Resolutions, mainly because I forget them almost instantly. However, I love listening to other peoples. With this in mind, I've spent the last few days reading peoples goals and plans which inspired to set some myself this year. I mean, there's no harm in having a little hope! Plus, if I write a post on it, I have it right here in writing, so I cannot forget!
