L’oreal Color Riche Nail Polish

Three nail varnishs, pink, purple and blue by L'Oreal

Doing my nails was one of the first ‘beauty’ things that I ever really got into and at 15 whilst I was never interested in anything more than some wild blue eyeshadow and mascara I was already building up a collection of outlandish nail varnish. Not much has changed except that I own foundation, have […]

The Day I Went To A/W #CoopWineTasting

A small bottle of wine with colourful bites

I was so excited to receive an invite to the Autumn Winter Co-op wine tasting event in London for last month. After going to the one in May for the Spring Summer collection I had a rough idea of what to expect but was on the look out for that perfect red wine to enjoy […]

Lush Cosmetics Autumn Leaf Bath Bomb

Autumn is often the season of dread for me as the days get noticably shorter and the weather becomes increasingly gloomy. But the colours of the leaves, the shades of clothes it becomes ‘acceptable’ to wear and the shift in mentality towards snug evenings and thick pjs makes it that little bit better. And it […]

Seeing What Is On Offer In Cardiff

With not much time and my partner having his own thing to do the things we got up to were pretty limited but as well as going down to¬†Cardiff Bay. But I thought I would share a few things with you to help provide you with a bit more information should a trip to Cardiff […]

Rimmel’s The Only 1 Matte Lipsticks

Thursday was my day off. I had a missed parcel on the Tuesday so arranged for it to turn up when I would actually be around. Sure enough that package, shipped over from the USA, arrived but flung into my hand by the postman was a rattling red padded package. Nothing else was due to […]

Month Two Update On My August 2016 Aims

What a month! Not only have I settled further into work and started to get into new routines and more positive habits of making the most of my time off and days in general but, despite the nights closing in and the weather being a downer, I am still feeling pretty upbeat about life at […]

Cadbury’s Ghooost Egg

Usually Halloween is not my thing but if it means there is a chance to have a Creme Egg pretty much as far away from Easter as possible then I am listening. Of course creme eggs are very much a specific taste. For some people they can be far too sweet and sticky and for […]

ASDA Extra Special Melting Layer Smoked Haddock Fishcakes

When our ASDA shopping was delivered the other day we were more than delighted by what our really cheap and simple fishcakes had been substituted with. You normally end up with something slightly different or perhaps one notch up but instead we went from the cheapest chilled fishcakes in the store to some Extra Special […]

Month One Update On My August 2016 Aims

The day after my 22nd birthday I decided to do a blog post on what I want to achieve in the next 12 months. It includes places I want to go, things I want to buy and general life aims and to keep myself aiming for them and rewarding myself for my hard work I decided […]

Pigs Liver And Bacon With Mash, Veg And Gravy

A little while ago, when doing an ASDA delivery order, I decided to get some liver and opted for pig’s liver. Liver is obviously a very cheap element to a dish but it is something that I struggle to prepare and cook because the smell really is very strong. And now it is autumn and […]
