#TRAVEL | A cafe with positive vibes in London? ...Age Exchange

Are you looking for a place where you can sit for hours on end without feeling like you are being eye-balled by the staff that you have over stayed your welcome? Maybe a place that's like a treasure trove once you enter? Where the good times roll, and there is marvellous food to top it all off? Well look no further than this little place in the South East of London; in the heart of Blackheath there is Age Exchange! https://www.age-exchange.org.uk/
Whether is for a spot of lunch, a coffee with a friend, a place to get your work done or even just a home from home, say hello to Age Exchange.  The home of Reminiscence, this dementia arts charity has it all.

#FASHION | Classic style dresses

I only ever want to wear dresses that make me feel like Audrey Hepburn or Rita Hayworth tbh...so these 2 dresses from Femme Luxe really did just that! The black one is very much the LBD that I can see Audrey wearing - im getting all the Givenchy vibes! The red one is a timeless classic style that I think would wear well on all the old Hollywood starlets. The open neckline is somewhat glamourous and cheeky.

#BEAUTY | Skincare tips for combination skin

Hello January/February! I want to say I cant believe how fast January has gone, but its only been the last week that it seemed to have whizzed by. The weather is once again getting involved in my skincare routine and I have to change what products I have been using. 

I have been drowning myself in Mac's strobe cream more than anything since the sun went into hiding. Im pretty certain MAC superfans will have this as their all time staple for the perfect glowy base. It is quite the little miracle and can add a woken up look to the dullest skin. I think its worth the little investment if you're into glowy skin.


La Roche-Posay is somewhat of a new brand for me. Having first tried it out as another blogger recommended it. I have got their makeup remover which I spoke about in my recent youtube vid. This anti pore matt moisturiser I have started using as I like the consistency of it, its more of a serum. It can be used as a base for the skin as it has a little tacky feel to it. I l…

#TRAVEL | Liverpool

Its been a month since I visited Liverpool for the first time, its only right that I share my trip :) First of its a very friendly place, but I have come to learn that most places apart from London are....sorry London but its true.  I stayed for 2 nights and 3 days and I would say that it was enough time to explore the main parts of Liverpool and get a vibe for it.
Im happy that I can now sing "ferry across the mersy" and constantly shout.. I've been there! I've been there! Its the little things that make it worth it aha
Im a sucker for being near water and also in the city centre and the hotel I stayed which was called the tune hotel was the perfect walk away from the river as well as the city. A 5 min walk to the famous Cavern Club.
Museums are a plenty and I visited them all! My fave being the museum of Liverpool, lots of interactive fun things to do and to learn.

I would recommend taking a part of the day to go on the bus tours of which you can jump on at many a…

#BEAUTY | Faux Mink Lashes for a Natural/Flattering Look

Lashes don't always have to be worn just for a dramatic effect, they can also be worn to accentuate your eye in a natural yet defining way. I don't wear falsies everyday ( if you do..how do you do it?!) but sometimes when my mood permits me to wear them on an average day I go for a natural/wispy lash or just an accent lash for the outer part of my eye. Buying lashes isn't as an easy job as you may think, you really have to consider the brand due to mink lashes! Luckily I can present to you a brand which have just brought out a line of faux mink lashes as well as their other natural lashes. From fluffy, natural and salon style see how you can get the look below! All lashes from Kiss
Faux Mink - LBD Lash
Give me all the Hollywood starlet glam! I cant help but feel like Audrey Hepburn or Elizabeth Taylor in these lashes. They are fluffy, wispy yet add a little drama. This lash can be re-used up to 10 times if you look after them im sure they will last even longer than that. T…

#BEAUTY | Effortless and Drastic glow for under £10!

Recently I got sent some amazing glow products from my faves over at essence. For me nothing beats glowy, rosy skin all year round but especially in the summer. There was one stand out product for me, but all in all you cant go too wrong with any of these products because they are so affordable!


These little chubb sticks really pack on the glow! Its so annoying that the one I want to really show up on camera doesn't! The swatch you can see is the HOLO WOW stick which is for those who are not afraid to have a very bright holographic highlight or equally as good for specific makeup looks e.g. drag makeup, futuristic makeup. If you want a real effortless  glow, you need the 3D DEWY LOOK, it kind of feels like an oil when you apply it but its not sticky or smudgy - it stays exactly where you place it and is amazing on top of cheekbones!


If you want to intensify your glow even more, then add a little bit of highlight above your brows, on your nose and cupids bow. As you can see from t…

#OOTD | Summer Dress of Dreams

I hope all is well with my lovely readers, I have just been busy soaking up the sun whilst we have it and trying to adult! Thought I would share with you the dress I am loving at the moment.

Here it is, the summer dress of dreams. Its floral, floaty and has beautiful colours,..oh and its a steal at only £13 from Primark. There is a few summer styles to choose from at the moment in Primark, they have open backed, maxi, this style in different colours and patterns. Obviously I had to talk myself out of buying more than one! I just added a few accessories from Soul and Style . I have had a few comments on the dress, saying it looks a lot more expensive than it is and general compliments of how beautiful the pattern is. Its def a summer steal, so I would race down to your local Primark and grab it now.
