The Favourites Edition: July 15

So, this months favourites probably seem a little vain as it’s very much skin care and beauty, but it’s more ‘medical’ if you like. The lotions and potions have a mention because I’ve had a bit of a nightmare with my skin lately and the beauty items are simply to cheer me up because of that – i’m a girl, it’s what we do! Considering summer is in full swing i haven’t experienced the usual ‘shine’ complexion, my skin has actually gone the opposite and it’s become really dry which is something i’m not used to at all so I’ve gone back to a name that i trust. I…

The Fashion Edition: Stella and Dot Light Bracelet* 

It was only recently that i thought to myself ‘girl, you need some new wrist candy’ after lusting over Pinterest pics of festival friendly bracelets, and then funnily enough the cutest most delicate parcel landed on my doorstep. Birchbox kindly sent me the Light Bracelet* by Stella and Dot, first of all let’s state the obvious reason why this piece of jewellery is perfect for me, can you guess? It’s silver hardware! There’s nothing i dream about more, it’s my absolute favourite, there’s just something so vintage to me about silver detailing. There’s a second reason why i adore this bracelet although i won’t leave you guessing this…

The Food Edition: Banana Bread Baking Fail 

**DISCLAIMER** I’m a much better photographer than i am baker. I’m no Mary Berry, i’ll hold my hands up to that. I attempted to make Banana Bread for the first time and i know you’re probably thinking easy peasy, well not for me. I’m good at following recipes but i often get distracted and miss out ingredients i.e the sugar – yup… complete fail. My way out of that one was to drizzle the whole thing in chocolate and in all fairness the end result didn’t taste too bad, especially guzzled down with a cup of tea. If you’re better at following recipes than me and also have…

The Beauty Edition: Try Before You Buy Miniatures 

As i mentioned in my previous post i’m all over mini products at the moment. I’m still very new to blogging and although thoroughly enjoying it i can see how costly it can be especially as it’s not full time for me, i’m just a normal girl with a day job that has an interest in beauty and make up. It’s not always ideal, or even within my budget to buy full sized products to review or try out so i have been leaning towards travel sized purchases. We have all been there before, we have all experienced that disappointment of buying something expensive and not enjoying it or…

The Beauty Edition: Pop Beauty Trio Eye Shadow Palette 

I’m having an all things ‘mini’ obsession at the moment and i’ll blogging in more detail about that soon, so keep your eyes peeled! This little eye shadow palette falls into that category just nicely, with three neutral shades this is the perfect travel sized product to take along with you in your handbag. This came in my July Birchbox and it was one of the products i wanted to try out most as i’m finding myself turning to eye shadows more than usual, especially with the summer months ahead i’m all in favour of a ‘pop’ of colour, as the name would suggest. I’ve not come across Pop…
