4 Reasons to Visit Turks and Caicos | 30 Before 30

I'm not one for New Year's Resolutions, my theory is if you don't make 'em, you can't break 'em. So, to avoid disappointment and commitment because I'm super lazy, I've created my 30 Before 30 list instead, giving me just over 5 years to get things ticked off.

Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide / Beauty

I know i'm more than a little bit late to the party and most of you may have already finished your christmas shopping. I know that I have bought the bulk of the gifts for my loved ones already but I still have a few outstanding gifts to plan, purchase and wrap!

My approach to gift shopping is basically shopping for myself, because I know that if i like it my friend/sister/etc will like it too. This beauty round up of last minute gifts may be just in the nick of time to inspire you to grab some great gifts, or even just as a bookmark for boxing day presents for yourself.

Winter Hair Care Routine

I love the idea of winter so much- cosy jumpers, candles, thousands of blankets and all the trappings of the Christmas season give me all the feels. I am less of a fan of the toll the weather takes on my hair and skin.

Beauty Fail | Soap & Glory SUPERCAT Liner


The Soap&Glory SUPERCAT Liquid Black Eyeliner Pen is probably one of the first products (especially from S&G) I can say I definitely won't be buying again.

Why we're abandoning pods to grow our following

You will all have heard about the horrible, not-so-recent changes to Instagram with its algorithm of doom. For many this has been disastrous for engagement and we have seen lots of you on Twitter talking about how your following growth rate has died and influencers have reported massive drops in likes and comments. The non-chronological feed is certainly a prime culprit, and there is little motivation to post and even keep up with new content when you cannot even be sure you will see your fave account’s most recent pics on your feed. It is so demoralising, and as Instagram is reluctant to revert to how things were we explored alternative methods of growing our following and improving engagement and joined some Pods.

How I Got My Smile In Time For My Wedding

You will have read my post on my ceramic adult braces, so you'll know just how long I have wanted straight, white teeth. For years I felt ashamed of my smile, not just because it was wonky and my front teeth stuck out, but also because they were a bit yellow and it just meant I never smiled - like, ever.

I'd tried pretty much every teeth whitening trick out there, from Crest strips to a Hydrogen Peroxide and Baking Soda paste, but nothing gave me quick enough results or long-lasting enough whiteness.

Introducing Beefeater's Summer Menu | Stevenage

This post has been a long time coming, and it's mainly due to our super incredibly busy schedules what with the wedding, holidays, new jobs, uni etc. So our backlog is getting crazy! This post for example was due to go up about 2 months ago! Such bad bloggers we know! Rather than admitting defeat and accepting it won't go up in time, we feel like this one really has to as the food was just so damn good!

I'd never been to Beefeater before this, that I know of. A branch opened 2 minutes from my house over a year ago and I still didn't go, for literally no other reason than not being able to find the time and it was always booked up whenever we did decide to go. I mean, the idea of a restaurant dedicated to beef, literally sounds like my kind of heaven, so when Beefeater* told us about their new Summer menu, we jumped at the chance to sample it!

How I Chose the Perfect Wedding Ring

I can't stop looking at it now the wedding's over. It all went by in a bit of a haze and I kind of feel sad that I've not got the wedding to look forward to anymore. What am I going to do with all my time now?

If you read my post on Buying an Engagement Ring on a Budget, I outlined the 4 C's of diamond buying - Cut, Clarity, Colour and Carat. All are very important when finding the perfect ring for your big day and also need to be taken into consideration if you're looking for a wedding band with stones in. Of course, the 4 Cs only really apply to Diamonds, so if you're just getting a plain band, don't give yourself the added stress!
