A Slice of Christmas with bakerdays*

The one thing that I really wish I was good at is baking. I’m not absolutely awful, I can make something edible but I’d love to be able to make incredible cakes that everyone falls in love with. I actually used to watch a YouTuber called Rosanna Pansino for years who used to do a series called Nerdy Nummies. Her baking was always video game themed and she always looked so perfectly put together – I just end up sweaty, red in the face and covered in flour. I’ve always thought baking would be an especially useful skill around peoples’…

A Festive Photography Masterclass ft Viking Direct

Picture this; a cocktail bar, canapes, Christmas decorations galore and a room full of bloggers with cameras let loose on props, lights and other photography tools. That’s a brief insight into how last Wednesday night was. Back in July, the lovely Jennie from Search Laboratory invited me to a giffgaff event and she very kindly invited me back this month for a Christmas themed photography masterclass sponsored by Viking Direct. This invite came at the absolute perfect time as I was feeling a little bit in a rut with my blog photography. I felt like I just kept recycling the…

NIP+FAB Kale: A Winter Skincare Fix

NIP+FAB are one of those brands that I rarely buy from but when I do, I immediately wonder why I don’t try more of their products. Flashback to August 2017 and I was literally in love with their Viper Venom primer – it’s still one of my all-time favourites now. They recently had a huge sale on where a selection of products were being sold at just £5 each which is a pretty decent saving. Of course, I had to jump on this sale – a lot of the kale skincare range was included in the reduced selection so I…

Everyday Autumnal Make-Up Looks with benecos*

Autumn is my favourite season for so many reasons; the fresh cold air, big woolly jumpers and pumpkin spiced everything. What’s not to love? In my opinion, one of the best things about Autumn is all the darker colours that start to come out through fashion and make-up – burgundy being a firm go-to of mine the second it hits October. With that being said, the cold also makes me want to stay in bed all snug for as long as I possibly can. For this reason, I like to keep my make-up as quick and simple as possible whilst…

Gym Bag Essentials with Ben & Anna*

Without pretending I’m totally enthusiastic about fitness and having a healthy lifestyle regime, I have actually started going to the gym before work. I know, I shock even myself. Joking aside, it has genuinely really helped me to feel a bit better about myself. Now at least if I eat that big pizza on a Friday night I can feel a little less guilty about it. Aside from packing the obvious change of clothes and tissues to wipe away my tears about being up early to exercise, these are some of my absolute musts that I always keep in my…

Say Goodbye to Dry Winter Skin with Hempz*

There are many things that I don’t make the time to do on a regular basis that I probably should, moisturising being near the top of that list. Regularly going to the gym is probably number one but we’re not here to talk about that today, let’s focus on one issue at a time. I’m a self-confessed procrastinator and I don’t often realise how much I’m neglecting my skin from proper nourishment until it’s too late. When Winter approaches, I quickly get very dry and irritable skin that needs some proper TLC. As the colder season is fast upon us,…

Useful Mailing Lists for the Modern Millennial

I think anyone with an email account can understand the frustration of mailing lists, particularly when you know that you definitely didn’t opt into the majority of them. With all of the GDPR laws that have now been introduced, I was holding out hope that I’d stop receiving so many unwanted emails but I swear I’m only getting more. I recently had a massive clear out of my inbox, unsubscribing to the vast majority of unwanted automated emails and it took a lot more time than I even thought it would. Although there are plenty of mailing lists that I…
