My April Favourites!

Hi Friends,

I've got SO many favourites this month because I feel like I've fallen back in love with beauty and make up so make a cup of tea, pause your TV show and get comfy - I apologize NOW for the length of this post!

Brand Focus: Nars

Hi Friends,

Today I want to talk about my top 5 things from the brand Nars! The concept of this series is that I pick a brand and then talk about 5 of their products that I love most. I wish I was able to read something like this when I started to get into make up because I remember going up to different make up counters and feeling overwhelmed with all of their products and not knowing what to look for! Hopefully this means next time you walk up to the Nars counter you'll have a couple of things to look out for.

5 Healthy Snacks!

Hi Friends,

I want to talk about 5 of the super quick and healthy snacks that I've been having for the past couple of months. I've really changed my eating habits and routine generally. I used to snack on much worse things but I've got into 'healthier' snacking. It's quick and easy because lets get real, who has time to make snacks?! Don't get me wrong, I don't snack all day long, I normally have about 1 snack a day to keep me going at about 4pm when I think I'm going to eat naughty food e.g. cake and biscuits.

Revision Tips!

Hi Friends,

Let's talk about revision. Who loves revising? no one. Okay, I like it more than I admit. But it's definitely not my favourite thing! I feel like by this point I've kind of got revising down. I know that at this point SO many people around the country are revising. I see so many students doing their revision towards their GCSEs, A-Levels, degree exams... the bunch! The first thing to note is that this is a long-ass blog post. I've written the ways that I find easiest to revise but please please please realise that everyones brains work in different ways, these things may not work for you but they're perfect for me. I just hope that this can even help one person revise!

Studio Sunday!

Hi Friends,

Art was one of my favourite things for the month of March because I felt I was really able to express myself creatively in my journal. I know that most people my blog posts that are about make up or exercise or...'trendy' things, but art is my passion and I love writing about it!

April on Instagram!

Hi Friends,

Recently I've been loving Instagram. As an artist I always find Instagram to be my favourite social media site to post on because, obviously - it's so visual! So I thought I'd give you a quick round up of my recent instagram posts...

Top 5 Essie Polishes for Spring!

Hi Friends,

I've been having a rough time recently and wanted to write some refreshing posts, that would make me feel Spring ready and refreshed. It's been a rough few months and it's SO easy to tell if I'm having a difficult time because it means that my nails are not painted.

Top 5 Make up Items for Spring!

Hi Friends,

SPRING HAS SPRUNG! Which makes me super happy. Today I want to talk to you about my current top 5 Spring make up items. I felt that my favourites this month weren't very 'favourite-ish' (this is not a word). I had quite a stressful month but now that I'm back on my feet a bit I'm falling in love with products all over again and thought I would do some sharing!

Quick and Delicious Butternut Squash Recipe!

Hi Friends,

Today I wanted to share a super duper quick recipe which I have loved recently. I found it in the cookbook Persiana but this version is a tiny bit different. Their version makes pesto from scratch but I'm trying to include super quick, easy meals because when work and my degree gets crazy I need time to focus on that, rather than making a meal.

My advice to anyone in their early twenties...

Hi Friends,

I love writing thoughtful Thursday posts because they're a bit more personal. I feel like I've said that a lot recently, but I love it. Today I want to briefly touch on some of my advice to 20 year olds. Now... at the ripe old age of 22 some of you may be thinking 'hang on a minute, how can you have advice when you're still in your early 20s?!' well... WATCH ME. You learn a lot in a couple of years and I just thought I'd share what I've learnt so far. I know I have SO much more to learn but this is just a bit of fun! Of course most of these apply to people of all ages, but it's what I've learnt in my early twenties.

48 Hours in Florence...

Hi Friends,

So last week I had an AMAZING trip to florence from Tuesday to Thursday morning. We set off bright and early and made it to Florence by about 2pm. We then left Thursday morning at 12 so I thought I'd sum up what you can fit into 48 hours in Italy, Florence!

Haul Time!

Hi Friends,

New type of post for me - a haul! I haven't done one of these before because it's not really my thing but I realised that I'd got lots of things recently that I was really excited about so I thought I'd do a quick post about them! Obviously this won't turn into a regular thing because this isn't really my style, but I thought it would be fun every once in a while.

What's in my journal?

art, journal, sketch, artist, drawing, creating,

Hi Friends,

I thought today I'd give you an update on my journal circle! I've been working in my colleagues book for the past 2 weeks and I'm REALLY enjoying it. Although it's been a super stressful month, doing this art work has made me feel so much better and so much more relaxed. I find it incredibly therapeutic and it's the thing I love most in the world!
