I can’t quite believe it’s February tomorrow! Which means it will be my birthday really soon! Exciting 🙂 But seriously, January has gone scarily quickly. I find lots of people put extra pressure on themselves throughout the month, whether that be to make it a success, to stick to their resolutions, to diet and do lots of exercise. Don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely not against setting goals and being healthy, but for me personally I find this kind of behaviour just puts more pressure…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 31st January 2016”

Eeeeeeee it’s nearly December!! Even though I’ve been listening to Christmas songs for a week or two now, it’s going to be great to finally get into the festive season properly, with advent calendars, present-buying, and of course putting the Christmas decorations up. I can’t wait! Here are my favourites for the last full week of November, I’m off to daydream about my first pay day tomorrow… (!!) 1. Day off! I was lucky enough to be allowed a day off on Friday (unpaid, of…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 29th November 2015”

I’ve had quite the eventful weekend, which I’ll be doing a post on soon, so I’ve not had the chance to jot this down until 4.30pm on a Sunday! I also had Friday off, which was my first day off so far and was pretty awesome. I’m really getting into Christmassy stuff as well, which I know is pretty early for most, but I love getting excited about it all. The earlier I get excited, the longer everything lasts, because I never want Christmas to…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 15th November 2015”

This is going to be a deceivingly political post I’m afraid, so anyone here just for the make up chat should probably check back soon for a different type of post! I was inspired to write about the current plans, due to be released in the Budget tomorrow, for extended Sunday trading hours. Amateurly diagnosed as a shopaholic by almost everyone I know, this is something that interests me. However, this really jumped out at me due to my time spent working in retail, which…Continue Reading “To Shop or Not To Shop”

It was a few days late, but last night I went out to a bonfire and fireworks night. It was out by Woodstock – which is in Oxfordshire for most of you reading this who don’t live anywhere near me – in a massive field, and despite the constant drizzle it was a great evening. There was fantastic food, a classic pig roast perfect for a cold night, and plenty of hot drinks on hand to keep us toasty. They had a huge fire, which…Continue Reading “Fire, Food, & Fireworks”

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you’re all having great weekends. Mine is relaxing more than anything else, which suits me just fine! Toady’s favourites were a tad difficult to pull together, as I’ve not really been discovering much new lately, but here’s what I’ve managed to scrape together for you guys 🙂 1.Comfy & chunky jumpers It’s that time of year again when it’s cold enough to be wearing thick, woolly jumpers, which is awesome! Although I love the sun, there’s nothing better than just…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 17th October 2015”

This is going to be a super quick favourites I’m afraid, as once again I forgot! It’s Sunday night and I’ve had so little free time this weekend, which is really unusual for me! Anyway, keep reading to check outs week’s favourites. 1.Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette I know, I know, I only posted about this a week or so ago. But actually I’ve really been enjoying this so far. I’ve only done one really smoky eye with these shadows, as I’m mostly doing make…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 11th October 2015”

Back to my weekly favourites this weekend! Most of these are probably going to be holiday related (sorry!), but I can almost definitely promise that I’ll stop talking about Bratislava sometime soon.. 🙂 1.Real hot chocolate In quite a few places that I’ve been to in Europe, they have amazing chocolateries where they have real hot chocolate, which tends to basically be pure melted chocolate. That you drink. Yup. They’re awesome. The combination I had in Bratislava was white melted chocolate with mint liqueur… *drools*….Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 20th September 2015”

Okay, so I know my last post was also a shopping haul, but it was also a Youtube video which I filmed at least a week ago (I had to wait for someone to help me with the editing :’) ). Today is my first weekend back in Oxford, and because I actually had a (sort of) free day today after my exams yesterday, me and Matt decided to pop into town this afternoon for a bit of a wander. Unfortunately, I’d already thought of…Continue Reading “Sunday Shopping Spree”
