Kate Spade Minnie Mouse Collection

1 comment

WARNING: This post may make you want to spend money. (A lot of it).

I'll admit that I've been a pretty rubbish blogger lately, but I'm hoping to get the ball rolling and finally get back into it. My favourite posts to create are always wishlists as I love finding new products to share with you, add to my wishlist and also jazz up my blog a little bit with new pretty items. Kate Spade NY is my favourite designer, if I won the lottery I would definitely go wild and order a crazy amount of items - especially anything with glitter on it! As I was browsing Kate Spade's UK website recently, I headed over to the 'New In' section and couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this beautiful new Minnie Mouse collection. Being designer items, they are most definitely not cheap - but you never know, one day they could be ours! Plus, free delivery means it's not too much of a splurge, right?!

Perfect Summer Dresses With House Of Fraser

Leave a Comment

We may be heading into Autumn any time soon, but there's still a chance that the sun will rear its head for us in order for us to finally wear a summer dress without receiving any strange looks! I love dresses as they are such a simple item of clothing to have in your wardrobe, are much more comfortable than wearing tight jeans and also makes you look like you made more of an effort than you actually have! With this in mind, I have worked with House of Fraser on this post to pick out some of my favourite picks of their womens designer dresses to share with you. I've tried to choose as big a variety as possible as we all have different tastes so we've got a mixture of stunning silver and glitter sequin dresses, maxi dresses and beautiful floral patterns. As there were so many gorgeous items to choose from, I decided to split it up into two separate wishlists - one for dresses under £50 and one for on the pricier side!

Seventeen Mega Matte Lipsticks

1 comment
I'm a huge lover of lipstick. Only recently have I started to realise that my makeup routine is not complete each day without a slick of different lipstick. I'm starting to become more confidence with the shades that I use such as bold reds, corals and paler pinks for a more neutral look. Seventeen are my favourite budget beauty brand thanks to their affordable pricing yet impressive products. Seventeen as a brand are exclusive to Boots and have recently released 12 new shades of the brand new Mega Matte lipsticks.


As you can see the packaging of each lipstick is pretty slimline, sleek black and really easy to fit more than one in your already jam packed makeup bag! With it being a matte lipstick, I was certainly expecting it to flake on my lips and not last very long - but I have to put my tail between my legs and admit I was wrong. On first application, I definitely recommend using a lip balm or exfoliator first as I did find that my lips were quite dry so that did initially make it a little harder to blend into my lips. This can be rectified easily by using a quick slick of lip balm before applying your chosen colour. I'm always a little sceptical about how long lipsticks are going to last compared to how long they actually do last - but the Mega Matte lipsticks honestly give a gorgeous bold colour to your lips and last a solid few hours before it needs topping up, which is just fine to me. There's nothing worse than realising an hour later that you're lipstick has completely disappeared but luckily this won't happen here! 


As I mentioned, there's plenty of shades to choose from. You can use Seventeen's 'Find your matte heaven' match wheel to help find your perfect shade if you feel that you'll need a little guidance. The stunning shades range from shades such as 'Violet Summer', 'Lava you a lot', 'Roses are red' and 'Nude News'. There's definitely a shade for everyone. The Mega Matte lipsticks are an absolute bargain at just £4.49 each and are available online at Boots or in store.

Feline Catty Wishlist

2 comments

I think that the blogging buzz has finally returned to its rightful owner after being out of action for way too long. I can't quite explain what it was that made me have such a long time between writing my posts but I felt that my interests were elsewhere and I just didn't have the time or concentration to sit down and focus. However, today I'm back with one of my favourite posts to create - a wishlist! Not any old wishlist, but in honour of my love of cats - its a feline frenzy wishlist! Cats are my all time favourite animals, they're so cute and snuggly and love to sleep just as much as I do. I think I've found some stunning items in this wishlist, I especially love the trinket trays and pink stapler. I hope you find some pretty bargains in this post - let me know if there's any other animals you think I should focus on too and I can create that too! x

The Ultimate At Home Chocolate Spa Experience.

Leave a Comment

I absolutely love spa days. I love being able to go somewhere to be able to completely relax and switch off and of course be pampered whilst catching up on a good book or magazine. I've also recently been listening to spa and meditation music on the internet, which I love listening to before I fall asleep at night. I would definitely recommend it if you're feeling a little on edge or anxious as I've always scoffed at the idea of music being able to help me, but currently I do find it really helps me relax.

Unfortunately, apart from the odd Groupon deal here and there, spa days don't come cheap and if I won the lottery, I think I'd be visiting one each week! So, with that in mind I recently got thinking about some lovely new chocolate body products that I've picked up recently and thought I'd recommend them to you so that you can create your very own at home chocolate spa experience! So to start off, I run a lovely hot bubble bath using my favourite Avon Chocolate & Orange bubble bath. Not only is this a bargain for a 1 litre bottle, but it creates plenty of bubbles and fills the bathroom and even the landing with a heavenly scent. I'll find myself my latest book or magazine and make sure that my spa music is playing on my phone too. There's loads of different varieties on Youtube to choose from and it really reminds me of being in a spa treatment room! As well as my usual shower and bath products, I'll treat myself to my Avon Planet Spa Chocolate Face Mask. It has a stunning scent of chocolate and applies to the skin smoothly and dries on to the skin quickly. After my bath, I'll wash off the face mask with warm water and finish off my routine by applying my 'Beautifully Scrumptious' chocolate body butter which I picked up from the pound shop. 

I also think that to complete the full chocolate spa experience, it's only fair that you've got a chocolate bar to nibble on too! If you're now in the mood for treating yourself to some lovely chocolate treats without the calories - check out my previous post here
