New Loves

August 31, 2015

Firstly, how in the world is it the first day of SEPTEMBER tomorrow? 

2015 , I implore you please slow down a little bit during these last 4 months...

And secondly, I would like to share some of my favourite new purchases/discoveries I've made this rather grey, wet and gloomy August. Hope you enjoy!


MAC Bombshell

Quite literally the most perfect shade of pink lipstick I have ever laid eyes on. I was out looking for a suitable replacement for Avon's Pink Quartz (after finally admitting that scraping out the dregs with a lip brush in public is really not a good look, nor is it at all convenient) and I ended up finding the perfect match only, like, better. It's the most beautiful, subtle pink but still has that little shimmer to it to - ideal for everyday wear without being at all boring. Did I mention it's perfect

Photo Diary: Bloggers Market + Landaan

FYI - The Hoxton Hotel - NOT in Hoxton. Who'd have thunk it? (Hint: not us)

So after a lovely little bus journey from Hoxton to Holborn (to The Apartment at the Hoxton Hotel, in Holborn, not in Hoxton, FYI) we arrived at the Bloggers Market hosted by the lovely Carrie (WishWishWish), Olivia (What Olivia Did), Dunya (Dearest Deer), Kristabel (I Want You To Know) and Lucy (Shiny Thoughts).  Cue a whole load of cuteness.

Photo Diary - Shoreditch

August 09, 2015
The joys of living on the outskirts of the greatest city in the world (this is an opinion formed almost entirely on bias, however, of all the cities I've been fortunate enough to visit so far - London is by far the most quirky, versatile and downright loveable of the lot!) is that when it comes to finding things to do on the weekend you don't have to look, or travel, very far.

After a quick Saturday morning hunger-fuelled Google sesh I soon decided Urban Food Fest was the destination. Destination taste-bud blessedness

PayDay Wishlist

August 04, 2015

Currently in the process of trying not to do the whole spend-all-my-money-within-one-week-of-payday-and-be-all-kinds-of-broke-for-the-rest-of-the-month thing. But let's be honest it never happens! GIMME.

The Inspo Post

August 02, 2015

"The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without the work."

Up until a few weeks ago I pretty much put the pro in procrastination; the joke was I'd always considered myself an ambitious person who thrives on being busy and having something to show for my time. Yet, in actual fact, all I'd do is get home from work, crawl into bed and watch countless episodes of That 70s Show - the only products of my free time ended up being a flat iPad battery and square-eyes. 

And then last month, whilst moping over my bowl of Rice Krispies one Monday morning, I realised I'd had enough of the routine. I realised I want need change - that all the goals I so "passionately" want to achieve and the dreams I want realised aren't going to materialise from binge watching Netflix in bed. I have this drive to be successful and do all the things I've ever wanted to do and, for the first time (in foreverrrrrrr), this drive is so strong it's overpowering insecurities that, up until now, have always crept in the way. So, in order to keep this motivation going strong, I've been fuelling it with the help of Pinterest and thought I would share some of the quotes and images that have been keeping me inspired.
