Decor Tips | Make your Rented Property Feel Like Home

As you may know from following us on Instagram and Twitter, I'm (Jasmine) currently in the midst of buying a house with my husband. We've gone for a new build and as we bought off-plan, we got to choose our floors, kitchen, carpets and really make it our own without having to do anything ourselves except pay for it. That's a post for another time, but having been renting for over 5 years, we know the struggle of moving into a rental property and having to put up with things that you're not allowed to change. I'm here however, to tell you that actually, you can make a rental your own, it just take a few tactically placed items of decor, some DIY and some elbow grease.

Payday Wishlist | It's Time to Treat Yo' Self

It's that time again - my favourite time of month! On a certain day, a little chunk of money enters our accounts as a reward for all the hours of our lives we dedicate to work. How that money is spent varies from person to person, from saving it all away for a bigger goal like buying a house or a new car you've been needing for months, to splurging on things you want like a new laptop or designer handbag, or just paying bills and getting the shopping in. Everyone spends money differently, but as it's recently been my birthday and my bonus is coming in this month, I'm torn between 'save it sister!' and 'treat 'yo self!'. To indulge my inner demons, I'm going to try and argue it out...with myself... and show you all the wonderful things you can buy with your payday pay packet.

Celebrating 6 Years of Sœurs de Luxe | Bill's, St. Albans

Having hit our 6 year bloggiversary this year, we never got round to actually celebrating it. Following Bill's Restaurant, St. Albans's recent relaunch party we attended a few weeks ago and sampling some of their starters, we really wanted to give the rest of their food a try. The meatballs were exquisite and the halloumi fries were divine, we just had to taste more. It's safe to say the diet's went out the window when we visited as we gorged on a three-course feast.

So everyone will have seen the hype surrounding Benefit's £10m #OutOfThisWorld launch of their new BADgal BANG! mascara across the web and rave reviews have been cropping up everywhere.

Superdrug's NEW Some Body Protein Range | Reaching My Fitness Goals

Source: Superdrug.com

Okay, I said in my previous post that I wasn't into the whole 'New Year, New Me' goal setting, but I guess I lied... a little. My goal within the last few years was to get back to my weight in sixth form. you'll see various posts from me in the past few years that try new exercises, diets etc in a bid to lose weight, get fitter and get my old silhouette back. This year, it's just a re-commitment to myself to be better, thinner, fitter.

DIY Lavender Themed Summer Wedding | How I Created The Wedding of My Dreams

7 months ago I married the sweetest, kindest, most generous man I've ever known. After 6 year being together and 3 years living together, on our 6 year anniversary on June 29th 2017, we got married in a barn venue in Hertfordshire.

My wedding took a lot planning, caused a lot of stress and several hours of online shopping to make sure we stayed in-budget. Luckily both our parents were very generous in helping us pay for our wedding, so the venue, food, registry fees, dress, music and flowers, being the most important purchases, were covered.  When it came to decoration and extras, it took a little more scrutiny with our self-funded portion of the overall budget to make sure we got everything we wanted, right down to the last little detail.  Bear with me, this is going to be a long post, feel free to scroll to the section most relevant to you!

NutriBuddy Breakfast Shake | First Impressions

So the 'New Year, New Me' posts have been cropping up all over the place in the past few weeks, with people promising themselves to be happier, healthier and better this year. For me, I find that setting a New Year's Resolutions is basically setting myself up for a failure; I know myself too well, I know I wouldn't last a week. If you don't make 'em, you can't break 'em! My 'do whenever' goal however does include losing all the weight I've gained since being in a relationship and I am always looking for ways to lose it, long-term.

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.
