#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. 



#HEALTH | Precious Pearl Enamel Remineralising Serum -Beverly Hills Formula

Another toothpaste I have been trying out, I feel there isn't any harm in trying out toothpastes because they pretty much all do the same job but with different flavours and textures. I'm not sure the texture of this was one of my personal faves as it was quite grainy and I prefer a much smoother texture, the flavour is quite subtle so its great if you are not a big fan of overpowering mint smells.

#HOME | Curiosity Corner Candle by Crabtree and Evelyn

My name is Sarah and i am a candle addict

Is there a word in the dictionary for a candle addict/lover/?..if not then there should be because its a real thing. Now, I cant say what makes the perfect candle, the smell? the packaging? the type of jar? It has to be a combo of all 3 right? I always think that it is but then over all the years and all the candles I have bought that doesn't always apply. Sometimes a candle can look so plain and bare but just have that scent that you could die for!!
Im going to put it out there im not a huge fan of Yankee Candles...I only like a select few of their smells.  A few of my fave smells are smoke, musk, sandalwood, cedarwood.  fir, fig, fresh cotton, oats and honey … I could go on, but you get the jist for the smells I like

The Curiosity corner candle has these top notes, cedarwood, leather and cade and they are suppose to help unleash your creativity. It smells soooooo gorgeous and if you like any of the smells I have listed above then you wi…

SKINCARE | REN'S Ready Steady Glow Tonic

Since I ran out of my current moisturiser I thought I might as well give another product a go. I have been wanting to try REN's latest product for a while so it was the right time to start using just this in a one step simple skincare routine. I wanted to use it on its own to actually see what kind of results I got and if it really does make my skin glow.


The first thing that hit me was the refreshing citrus smell, I thought I would test it on my hand first off just to see if I would be sensitive to it and to my surprise the cotton pad was really quite filthy aha but it left my hand super soft.
I took the plunge to try it on my face and again....filthy cotton pad but super soft skin. It leaves the skin sort of tacky which gives it that glow, to me its a similar glow as to when you put oil on your face but less oily obviously :)

I let it air dry which only takes a few moments then I either put my makeup on, or leave as is. I use it every morning as it is a great way to wake you up…

#NOSTALGIA | Icons reading books

ever dreamed of being a pretty young thing in the times of 'Grease', 'the Outsiders' or further back than that? 'breakfast at Tiffany's' or even 'the Great Gatsby'. I would give up all the wi fi, junk food and tv shows in the world to have experienced it. Well...maybe just to go back and experience it for a week or so, after having the human rights we do today and freedom of thought and choices maybe living through those times wouldn't be so fun. movies and books really do have an effect on the imagination don't they. If times gone by is one of my favourite things, so are books. even more so is icons from times gone by reading books! The greats reading the greats, so bask in the dreaminess of it all with me and feel some type of way after looking through the archives...










#BEAUTY | Banish dry skin and lips with natural products - CRUELTY FREE

Who would have thought having soft hands and skin was a luxury, dry hands are a lot more common than originally thought. I mean being a women who does everything herself, DIY, washing, cleaning ,more washing, painting, washing with chemicals, dying hair....you get the drift. All that adulting takes their toll on our hands, so its important we look after them. All products are natural and cruelty free!
 Here are some goodies I got sent from Avernaco, there are 2 hand creams and a lip butter.


Hand and Skin Shield - Liquid Gloves
The packaging at first is quite striking. Not fancy or over done, a packaging that says "I do the job, I'm not just here to be pretty" a product I would instantly go for off the shelf to solve my dry skin problem. The fragrance is refreshing and earthy with hints of aloe vera & jojoba, after putting on a little dab of cream my hands were instantly soft ...no kidding, its like a liquid glove. I cant help but rub my fingers over each other to ke…

#OOTD | Paris tee x Tweed Skirt

Today’s fit is considering the fact that it is now sunscreen weather and not coat weather, that reminds me I must stop putting oil on my skin otherwise I’m going to bake. I find I can be all over the place with my style, skincare routine and makeup when the weather suddenly changes. It never seems to be an easy transition, more like BAM its here! A simple Paris tee, because when is Paris ever a bad idea, this tee shirt is actually from the £ shop….yes, I said it, I did it ..I never thought I would wear anything from the pound shop but then at the end of the day it is still a t-shirt, it is still cotton and somebody still made it. I feel like I’m probably too old to really care about labels and what people think now anyway aha! The tweed skirt is a typical classic, one of those items you have for years and years because it goes with anything and everything (especially in a neutral colour like black) it can also be worn casual, smart or fancy. I got mine from www.soulandstyleshop.com so…
