    High Street Sustainable Fashion: 5 Affordable Brands with Sustainable Clothing Items

    Hope everyone enjoyed the long Easter weekend! Since switching up my content and lifestyle to include more eco-friendly aspects, I’ve paid close attention to fashion and the origins of my clothes. The damaging effects of fast fashion are being exposed more, and it’s made me want to start developing my wardrobe more environmentally and ethically. The only problem here is the price. As a student, most sustainable brands are out of my price reach, or so I thought. I’ve recently discovered great affordable high street sustainable fashion brands that have clothing lines that don’t break the bank! This doesn’t mean the whole brand is sustainable, but they offer some products…

    Selfie Bag by Cotton Bag Co. Review

    I thought it was about time I did a fashion post as they’ve been pretty non-existent on this blog. Needless to say, when the opportunity to review the Selfie Bag by Cotton Bag Co. came around, I couldn’t wait to try it. Whilst not a major handbag enthusiast, I love tote bags. University open days definitely made me want to see how many tote bags I could collect. At first glance, the Selfie Bag looks just like a normal tote. There are 2 designs to choose from. A colourful flower print, or a black and gold pattern. I went for the black and gold as I felt that was more…

    Autumn Beauty Favourites | Makeup Routine

    Hello! How are you all? I’m not feeling 100% and am pretty sure I’m coming down with a cold. Autumn must definitely be here! I honestly have the worst immune system ever, so bring on the hot water and lemon. Anyway, enough of me moaning. I recently acquired some new makeup and thought why not do an Autumn beauty favourites post? Whilst I don’t wear makeup too often and opt for natural looks, there are some products seeing me through Autumn, now that the summer tan has faded, and I go back to my extremely pale complexion. Here’s my current makeup routine. I skipped a couple of products that are…

    Skincare Routine – Products I’m Loving

    Hello everyone! Over the summer, I found myself wearing less makeup and focusing on my skincare routine. I don’t know about you, but I swear that whenever I research skincare, the results are always different. There’s always a different order to apply products and something you should/shouldn’t include. Combining various articles and YouTube tutorials, this is my current skincare routine featuring a few favourites of mine. *Disclaimer: Some of these products may have been gifted in collaboration with a brand, or free from an event. I will mark these products with an (*). I will always give an honest opinion of a product. My Skincare Routine Simple Purifying Cleansing Lotion…

    Body Confidence: Thoughts, Advice and More

    Hello everyone! I noticed that I hadn’t published a ‘proper’ beauty or fashion post for ages. My favourites posts might feature a beauty product, but beauty is the main focus today. I decided it’s time to talk about something very much an issue in modern-day society. That is, body confidence. I mentioned body confidence in my Matt Haig book review, but after writing, I still had a lot to say. In a world of modelling, magazines, mannequins, and media, it’s no surprise that body confidence and self-love is hard. I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t noticed the pressures. Just before my holiday, I uttered things like “I can’t wear…

    July 2018 Favourites | What I’ve Loved

    It’s time for my July 2018 Favourites. Before we know it, the end of August will arrive! One thing I notice with favourites posts is that beauty products feature heavily. My July 2018 Favourites prove this doesn’t have to be the case. My July 2018 Favourites Devon           Considering I spent the middle chunk of July 2018 in Devon, it’s definitely a favourite! We were lucky with the weather, which made a difference. In July, Devon and Cornwall are susceptible to rain, but not this time. My days involved admiring coastal views, swimming in the sea and eating A LOT of ice cream. Notes on a…

    June 2018 Favourites

    Welcome to my attempt at keeping a regular monthly feature on the blog! After my May 2018 Favourites post, I am now having a look back at June, a month that has flown by. Despite the time disappearing before me, I still realised that I had a few favourites this month which I couldn’t ignore. Blogging Kind of an obvious one, but it’s true! After not blogging for months on end in 2017, then posting once in a blue moon in early 2018, I have really regained the blogging love! First and foremost, my reason for blogging is writing. I absolutely love writing, and whilst my freelance work is so…

    May 2018 Favourites

    I’m not typically one for the whole monthly favourites posts, mainly because I see so many out there already, and so why not do something different? Nevertheless, this month I have noticed myself using a few things quite often and decided I wanted to share.  e.l.f Tea Rose Matte Lip Colour Whilst I love the longevity of matte liquid lipsticks, I always the colours are way too strong for my complexion. However, my first e.l.f purchase has proved to be a success. The Tea Rose Matte Lip Colour is more subtle, ideal for everyday wear, and is just as long lasting. The pen style applicator also makes the product really…

    Liz Earle Blogger Event

    Hello! Has everyone had a good bank holiday? I know the thought of going back to work after a long weekend seems annoying, but look at it positively, you only have to work 4 days this week not 5. As I mentioned in my catch up post yesterday, on Thursday evening, I went to a Liz Earle blogger event at my local Boots store. I didn’t know much about Liz Earle, it’s always been one of those brands where I’ve walked past the counter under the assumption it was quite expensive. When the opportunity arose to find out more about the brand, I decided it was time to break this…
