True North De-Stressed Serum 4.1 Review

When it comes to skincare, I have to confess: I’m not very dedicated. I’m a bit of a bog standard cleanse and moisturise kind of girl. I tone occasionally and will do the odd exfoliating mask, but anything else is usually new territory to me. Okay, sometimes I don’t even cleanse and moisturise. I go for the baby wipe. There. I said it. 😳 Recently, however, I’ve been trying a couple of new products, and I’m totally digging them. (And I’m trying to up my skincare game, I swear!) You may have seen recently that I reviewed a SKN-RG product…

SKN-RG Ultra Marine Collagen Creme Review

  Before being sent this product to review, I had never come across SKN-RG before, so of course, I did my research, and was pretty pleased with the info I found. SKN-RG is an organic skincare brand which, after years of research and discovery, was founded by Robert and Deborah Scott. Using natural ingredients combined with scientific advances, they have created a wide range of organic products for numerous skin concerns. I was sent the Ultra Marine Collagen Creme* and immediately fell in love with the packaging. The creme comes in a sleek red box and is presented in a…

Guest Post: Brianna and Angelina’s Favourite Not-So-Popular books

This post is a guest post by Brianna from Fable’s Library. 🙂 Firstly, we want to thank Beauty, Books & Babble for letting us guest post 😀 THANK YOU SO MUCH THIS IS SUPER SUPER EXCITING! Angelina and I have a tendency to read not so popular books, well Angelina has this problem a lot more than I do, but she’s not alone, ok?! There are a lot of hyped books that do so well, then there are the other books that come out at the same time and survive on only 500 reviews and ratings! Today’s post is all…

"Okay, wait, so bloggers actually PAY for followers?!"

  It’s no secret that followers can be bought on the Internet. I often have people favourite my tweets or Instagram photos with the display name “BuY Mør3 f0LL0ŵëRżŽ“… Umm, nah, you’re alright, pal. But is it true? Do bloggers actually pay for their followers? The answer is yes. Yes they do. They pay in hard work, effort and dedication. They pay in late nights finalising posts and long days waiting for the sun so they can get the perfect photo. They pay in trying to wrap their head around HTML, CSS, no-follow links and SEO. (Gah, I’m still clueless…

Down the rabbit hole to a Mad Hatter Afternoon Tea with Hallmark Hotel

If you like Disney, food and cute things (and who doesn’t?!), then you will love today’s post. A couple of weeks ago, some of my fave Hull bloggers and I were invited to try an Alice in Wonderland afternoon tea at the Hallmark Hotel in Hull, and being an afternoon tea virgin (shocking, I know), I couldn’t wait to get stuck in and try everything out. The lovely staff guided us outside as soon as we got there, and we couldn’t have chosen a better day to meet up for our afternoon tea. The sun was beaming down on us…

Dreaming of a life in Tenerife #BlogYourWayToSpain

  I was a bit of a late starter when it came to sunshine holidays. My parents never had passports, and so caravan parks were where we spents our weeks off from school (and they were awesome by the way!). Finally, at the age of 18, I had my first holiday abroad. And my oh my, that was the spark that started my slight obsession with sunny holidays. Being in a different country was so new and exciting that I vowed to visit a new destination every time we booked a holiday. That plan worked for a while, until something…

8 Reality TV Shows I Can’t Help But Get Addicted to Every Year

Reality television is a bit like marmite – you either love it, or hate it. For me, I can’t get enough of it. There’s nothing worse than having no Saturday night TV in between reality series finishing and starting. What am I supposed to watch whilst I munch on my takeaway and gobble some sweeties?! I’ve slipped in and out of pretty much every reality series out there, but there are eight in particular I watch every year without fail…   The Apprentice I do hope that the theme tune to The Apprentice is now running through your head. Because…

The book that broke my heart: Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

It’s no secret that I adore a book that draws me to tears. There’s something quite magical about words on paper that have the ability to stir such strong emotions, and so when multiple people recommended Me Before You and insisted I would cry my little heart out, I couldn’t resist grabbing myself a copy even though I had no idea what the bloody thing was about. (And in case you’re wondering, they were right – I sobbed into my pillow the entire night after reaching the end.) Me Before You tells the story of quirky and colourful Louisa Clark,…

I’m happy with who won BGT, and trolling is not okay

The Britain’s Got Talent final was on TV last night (if you didn’t know that, where on earth have you been?!), and what a magnificent show it was. The finalists were spectacular – dancing, magic, death stunts, comedy, animals, music, madness – and the night was definitely a good one. I mean, the 10 year celebration that Ashley Banjo set up? In-cred-i-ble. But I’m not here to talk about the night in general. I’m here to have a good old babble about our winner. (Sooooo, if you haven’t watched it yet and don’t want a spoiler, you should go away.…
