My 3 favourite highlighters!

Hi Friends,

Today I want to talk about my top 3 highlighters! I won't lie to you, I prefer the high end ones. I prefer the quality, the finish... all of it! I do still like drugstore products, but if you're wanting a post on cheap highlighters this is not the one for you.

I quit sugar!

Hi Friends,

Don’t worry, I didn’t ACTUALLY quit sugar, but I’m slowly being convinced! This week I didn’t want to do a recipe because I’m just NOT in the mood. In stead, I wanted to introduce you to my new recipe book: I quit sugar: Simplicious! (simple and delicious). It’s by Sarah Wilson and contains 306 sugar-free so-nutritious-it-hurts recipes! Now, most of the time I seem to buy recipe books and not actually USE them, but throughout March I'm determined to use this book!

Lets talk about: PCOS!

Hi Friends,

When I originally made the thoughtful Thursday category on my blog my initial thought was that I wanted to speak about slightly more serious topics which I'm not actually used to, or necessarily good at!

5 Ways to CHILL OUT

Hi Friends,

This week has been half term which you think would be nice and relaxing but actually I found it really stressful. This next week I want to find lots of ways to help me relax and reduce anxiety so I started to make a list of things I want to do! All of these photos are from when I've genuinely done all of these things to relax, I didn't want to do all of them in one day and take photos just for this blog post because it didn't feel very genuine.

Journal Circles...

Hi Friends,

I'm in a journal circle with colleagues at work and we've all swapped! I told you I'd give you an update once this happened so I wanted to post some photos of it! I've worked on this book now for 2 weeks but I've been so busy at work that finding time to do this has been hard but I really love it. One thing we decided to do was to start one page but not complete it and leave it for the other person, which you can see below as I have a page in progress which the previous artist started.

Brand Focus: Benefit

Hi Friends,

Sorry I didn't get round to posting on Saturday, I had some personal things to deal with and I'm afraid blogging was the last thing on my mind. I might manage to sneak in the recipe I wanted to do at some point this week but I'm not promising anything.

Travel Make up Essentials...

Hi Friends,

I've already started thinking about where I want to travel this summer and I'm getting really excited. I wanted to post some of my make up essentials for when I go away for a week trip! They're products that I think are perfect for the summer and any hot weather. I know some of you might be thinking 'Lucy what are you chatting. It's bloody freezing'. I don't think I even care, I'm beyond excited about spring summer and now is the right time to be thinking about these products - my traveling starts next month!

If I could only have 1 product from...

Hi Friends,

I was looking at my eyeshadow palettes and thought 'If I could only have ONE thing from the Marc Jacobs make up brand it would be this palette...' and then the blog post idea clicked! So this post is called 'If I could only have one product from...' and the idea is that I list my lots of brands and then pick one product I would have from them! This way, if you go up to a make up counter and have no idea what to buy, this can give you a little bit of inspiration.

Arty coffe table books...

Hi Friends,

Recently I feel like I've been ordering lots of amazing coffee table books that I thought I needed to share them! I absolutely love having a couple of creative books out and on the bookshelves in my living room. I think they're a great conversation starter and just beautiful to look at. They're not all based on art but a lot include beautiful photography and are really creative, so here we go!

Brand Focus: Charlotte Tilbury!

Hi Friends,

For this what I love Wednesday sunday post I wanted to talk about my all time favourite make up brand...can you guess it? yep, the title probably helped, Charlotte Tilbury. Even if you DIDNT' read the title I feel like I actually mention Charlotte Tilbury make up in maybe EVERY post on my blog and this is why...
a) Charlotte Tilbury is a redhead make up artist so the colours she creates are perfect for my colouring
b) Her make up is really high quality and is totally worth the price in my personal opinion
c) The packaging... okay it may sound sad but IT'S GORGEOUS!
