I recently wrote a post giving away my best tips for saving money, if you haven’t already read this post you can do so here. One of my main points was to switch to drugstore beauty products and make it a little challenge to find affordable products that work just as amazingly as higher end products. Recently, I’ve been running low on all of my skincare so I needed to stock up. This was worrying me because I need to be strict with my spending so I had a browse on the Superdrug website to find some affordable products. Superdrug…

You may be wondering why the title says ‘October’ when it’s now November. I’ll be honest with you, it’s because I’m forgetful as hell. I’ve been paying a lot of attention to producing my upcoming Blogmas posts and completely forgot to post my monthly Look Incredible review. I should be receiving my November one sometime around now so this is very overdue. Alas, here we are. If you don’t already know, Look Incredible is a beauty box subscription service that costs £25 a month for a regular box or £35 for a deluxe box. I’m subscribed to the regular £25…

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,…

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.…

October has definitely been a busy month for me! I took on a little personal challenge for myself by promising that I will post regularly and work harder to produce content that I can be proud of. I set myself three main goals for the month; to blog more consistently, to broaden the topics that I blog about and to continue to support other bloggers. Working full-time, trying to maintain a gym routine and blogging two times a week has proved to be tricky at times but I feel so good for doing it. I know two times a week…

I thought this would be a very apt post for the lead up to the big day of Halloween because one thing I really love to do either on actual Halloween or in the lead up to it is have a scary movie marathon. I thought I’d share my top ten favourite scary films with you as I’m a massive lover of them. Some of these are not really that scary at all but they’re all perfect to watch on Halloween. I’ve watched SO many, it was actually really hard to filter it down to just ten but these are…

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…
