A Few of My Favourite Things: December 2017

I love a good favourites post but I’ve come to a realisation that I’ve actually never written my own favourites post. So, what better time to start than with a Winter themed favourites full of wonderful festivities?! Try saying that five times fast. I think these posts are a great way to get to know bloggers through the things they love and have helped me to discover some amazing beauty products as well. I’m thinking of doing these as monthly posts so let me know in the comments if that’s something you’d like to see on my blog in the…

Would You Rather: Christmas Edition

I love a good game of ‘Would You Rather’, I’ve even got an app of the game on my phone and I can easily end up spending hours on it. So when I was tagged by the absolutely lovely Lily from Covet Luxe to do a Christmas style ‘Would You Rather’, I got extremely excited. Make sure to go and check out Lily’s blog as well, her content is consistently amazing. Let’s get down to business (to defeat the huns). Eat brussel sprouts or cauliflower cheese? I’m actually a big sprouts lover, especially when they’re fried with little bacon bits.…

Must-See Movies of 2017 | AD*

One of my favourite things to do is go to the cinema; I love the high quality images and sound, seeing what’s new in the filming world and snacking on all of the popcorn. I was very kindly contacted by Panasonic to talk all about my favourite films so I thought I’d share some of my favourite releases of 2017. Panasonic have recently brought out the Panasonic Oled 4K TV – now, technology isn’t something I would usually blog about because I’m slightly uncool when it comes to those kinds of things. However, after taking a look at this TV…

Turn Over a New Tea Leaf with teapigs*

Tea is one of my favourite things; if I need some comfort, have a headache, I’m feeling a bit chilly or want something sweet I’ll always reach for a mug. I’ve always been a traditional English breakfast tea lover (strong, lots of milk and two sugars please) but there are so many different amazing flavours out there in the tea world now that I fancied broadening my horizons a little bit. I’d heard of a brand called teapigs through word of mouth so I checked out their website. teapigs have the hugest amount of variety; there’s liquorice and peppermint, popcorn,…

7 Simple Tips for Saving Money

Saving money is something I’ve always been absolutely dreadful at. I buy so many things on impulse and since working in the city centre, I’ve managed to develop an unhealthy habit of walking around the shops at lunchtime buying things out of boredom. However, my boyfriend and I are planning on going to Japan next year with a couple of friends which is something that I’m super excited for. I really want to be able to afford to go and have an amazing time. Japan isn’t the cheapest place to get to so I need to start saving big time.…

3 Easy, Affordable Halloween Make-Up Looks

Dressing up for Halloween is honestly one of my favourite things to do so I’ve come up with three looks that are fairly easy to recreate and don’t require you to break the bank in order to achieve them. These are really great if you’re a student or struggling for money and still want to look like you’ve made some creative efforts. They’re also really good last minute ideas because you can pretty much use resources that you’ve already got or that are easily accessible. Wednesday Addams from ‘The Addams Family’ Wednesday is such a simple look to achieve yet…
