*Shadow Switch

The Shadow Switch is the amazing dry eyeshadow brush cleaner by Beauty Essentials.


The brilliant makeup tool now has a firm place in my daily makeup routine. When creating an eyeshadow look it can be annoying to constantly keep using new eyeshadow brushes for different eyeshadow colours or shades, and this brush cleaner is the perfect solution to this problem. Also it's generally an amazing way to clean all your eyeshadow brushes.

Red Hot Chili Peppers | 6th December 2016, London

Ahhhh! A few days ago I was lucky enough to go and see one of my all time favourite bands play live at the O2 Arena London!


I have so much love for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and I was so excited when I found out that my auntie had got me tickets to go and see them on their 2016 UK Tour following their release of 'The Getaway' (a frickin' amazing album). After spending the day at Sixth Form, I quickly got ready at home, met my mum, and headed up to the O2 Arena!

*Being Organised with Mason Jars


I confess that I am...how should I say it...not the tidiest person I know. As much as I love the idea of being organised, neat and tidy like the amazing bedrooms splattered across Pinterest, I tend to be too lazy and messy. On the contrary I would like to share with you a great method to keep you're little bits and bobs tidy. But first, if you are someone like myself who tends to have too many clothes, makeup or just 'stuff', and if you are one of my American readers, MakeSpace may be exactly what you need! MakeSpace come to your house with some nice green bins, take the items you want stored away, pack it all up for you, and bring them back when you are ready! So maybe you wanted to store away you're summer clothes for next year, or if you're heading off to university, then this app would be great! As I don't live in the USA and therefore cannot use MakeSpace,  I have to create new ways of staying organised, and one of the ways I keep my makeup and beauty bits organised is by using mason jars.

Two Weeks in Loire Valley

Bienvenue to my little post all about my two weeks spent in the beauuuuutiful Loire Valley! My family and I went to Loire Valley last year, and we loved it so much that we decided to return again this year. I have spent these two weeks relaxing, unwinding under the sun, and spending time with my wonderful family. We have been out for days, lounging around the pool, out for walks and bike rides, and just having a lovely time.

So here's what I've been up to over the last two weeks...

Babe, Just Relax!

I'm currently writing this post whilst listening to chilled music and swinging in a hammock in the beaaaautiful Loire Valley sunshine (36°C at the moment!). Let's just say I'm feeling very relaxed and this is what has triggered me to write his post. As an A Level student, the past year has been very busy for me and at some times highly stressful, and now I have to do it all again for my second year (peak for me!). I believe that all of us carry stress and worries a lot of the time, and many of us are constantly too busy to enjoy the small things in life or moments of relaxation. I decided to write this post to highlight to you the importance of taking time out for yourself and your loved ones.

A Little Day in Brighton

Last Thursday my family and I took a spontaneous trip to Brighton for the day; me, my auntie and my sister. We headed off relatively late but arrived in Brighton around lunchtime. We started to walk along the promenade into the town centre. As it was about 12.30/1ish we looked for somewhere to have lunch, and as my sister and I really fancied pasta we decided upon Jamie's Italian.

The Minimalist Necklace

I am a huge lover of dainty and minimalist jewellery. The brand Orelia create the most beautiful and simple jewellery pieces but I find that they can be quite expensive so I rarely make purchases. Although on a recent visit to Whitstable, Kent I came across this beautiful necklace in the sale in the boutique Noa Noa and I couldn't resist it!

All Star Lanes | Brick Lane

My friends and I headed up to Brick Lane, London on Tuesday a.k.a the most miserable and rainy day of summer so far! Whilst walking through the lanes we were quickly becoming drenched so we decided to take cover at All Star Lanes. I have been once to the lanes at Westfield Stratford, but my friends had never been before so we were excited to have a go at bowling.


All Star Lanes offers a new bowling experience in a classic American style. Rock n Roll music is pumped through speakers and the themed interior looks fantastic. The food on offer is lovely with options such as waffles, pancakes, chicken nibbles, cocktails, milkshakes, alcoholic beverages and much more. Overall I would say that All Star Lanes provides high class bowling!



My friends and I arrived looking like drowned rats, but we were happy to take down our umbrellas and take off our soggy coats and jumpers. All Star Lanes at Brick Lane offers bowling, private lanes, karaoke booths, a restaurant and a bar. We decided to just do bowling for now so we opted for Lane 4 for two games (for the special price of £10 each!). We grabbed our ''super sexy'' bowling shoes and started the game. I must admit I am definitely not the best at bowling but I do enjoy it! My friends though are very good and we had a great time!




Once bowling was over we headed over to the bar seating area to have some drinks to wait for the rain to blow over outside. I opted for a lemonade vanilla float and it was delicious. I must admit the service wasn't that great at the bar, but I think they were understaffed on that day. After finishing my float we returned our bowling shoes and headed out into Brick Lane.



I had a lovely experience at All Star Lanes and I'd love to return again, perhaps to the Westfield Stratford alley with more of my friends.


Have you ever been to All Star Lanes?

14 Reasons Why I Shop Online

I love shopping online! As a blogger I spend a lot of time online, so it seems fitting to shop online too. I understand that online shopping comes with return issues and the inability to try items on, and don't get me wrong wandering in and out fashion stores, boutiques and markets looking for items to purchase is still very much a favourite pastime of mine, but there are so many great things about shopping online and that's what I'm going to talk about in this post!

I've tried lots of different brands and I was excited to try this new one from Botanics All Bright range.

The Garden in the Sky | London

Walking through an exotic garden over London's skyline...




Last Tuesday my friends and I took the lift all the way up to the 37th level of London's Walkie Talkie(155 metres up) to experience The Sky Garden. This free all year round event is amazing and I certainly recommend it to anyone.




Due to the fact that The Sky Garden is spectacular and free it is incredibly popular so you have to book tickets in advance - and tickets get booked up quick! We booked our slot for 4 o clock on Tuesday, we wanted to visit during the day in the sunshine to get the most out of the beautiful views over the capital.




As soon as we arrived at Level 37 we walked out on to the balcony to take in the amazing views over London (and it was very windy which wasn't great in a short dress,,, 😂). The huge windows gives you a 360 º view of London, and most of London's famous landmarks can be seen including The Shard, Tower Bridge and The Gherkin.





The Sky Garden is covered in exotic plants, trees and shrubs, and small seating areas, paths and bars are situated in admist the garden. We sat down and had an iced juice and a snack. My friends and I decided to go on the hottest day of the year (silly I know) and we were sweating very badly so we were dying for a refreshing drink! I had a fresh cranberry juice and a packet of berry popcorn - which was delicious and definitely needed!





We wandered around the garden taking photographs and having a lovely time, and then decided it was time for dinner. We walked to the nearest Bills restaurant at London Bridge (the birthday girl's choice) and it was delicious! I ordered the Mojo Chicken Skewers with cous cous salad, and finished with an Eton Mess. Oh and I ordered the most amazingly refreshing Watermelon Cooler! I had a delicious meal and overall a great day with my friends.
