A free 5* holiday to Switzerland? Yes please!

Image credit | Gstaad Palace Hello everyone! As you may know if you follow me on Twitter or if you read my first Let Me Tell You This post, I was incredibly lucky and won myself a 5* holiday to Mexico (I know, it’s amazing, I still can’t quite believe it!). I’m always entering giveaways on Twitter, and have been lucky enough to win a fair few, but nothing as big as holiday… until now of course! And seriously, now I feel like I have lucky dust and can win more… If I win a holiday to Mexico, I can…

Let Me Tell You This #2

Firstly, a quick apology for this post going up a tad late today. You may have seen on Twitter that I was a little drunk last night – whoops! From Friday to Monday, I trialled Herbalife’s four day healthy breakfast plan. After finishing the trial, I’d lost 3 and half pounds (yes, in just four days!), gained a whole pound of muscle, as well as losing 13.5cm from various parts of my body. Result! The lovely Chloe shared with us what exactly goes on in her head when she worries – and man could I relate. I live in constant…

Alone this Valentines? Have a date with yourself!

As you all know, the day of love is just around the corner. A day when red rose sales are at an ultimate high, jewellery is flying off the shelves, and restaurants are overflowing with happy couples. But what if you’re alone this Valentine’s? Your partner might not believe in the holiday (*cough cough* Damian!), or you could live apart. Maybe you’re happily married with children and time together seems an impossibility, or maybe you’ve just not found the special one yet. Then what? Then you have a date with yourself for the night, and here are some fabulous ways…

Taming Tangles with Tangle Angel | Review + Giveaway

Hello guy and gals! Let me introduce you to these beautiful brushes which are now a beauty must-have for me. I first stumbled across these little babies after receiving one in my #HBAlPorto goodie bag last year, and after getting another two in different designs, Tangle Angels have quickly become some of my favourite detanglers (and let me tell you, my hair does get hella tangley). The first thing you’ll notice is the gorgeous design of these brushes. Each one is shaped like the back of an angel, with a beautiful wing design, and a sleek handle which allows you…

Living with Marfan Syndrome

For those of you who might not know, February is Marfan Awareness Month, and so today I am lucky enough to have a special guest post from the lovely Shona. You might not have a clue what Marfan Syndrome is – and that’s okay! I was unaware of the details until recently, and that’s exactly what this month is about – spreading the word and raising awareness. Keep on reading to learn more and hear Shona’s story… Before I introduce myself I first must thank Ashton for letting me guest post on her blog about this. It’s a topic that…

Let Me Tell You This #1

Happy Sunday guys and gals! Today I’m starting a new feature on Beauty, Books and Babble which is all about sharing things with you. I wanted to start a short, weekly post where I simply sum up important parts of my week I feel I want to share, fill you in on amazing blog posts I’ve read throughout the past few days, as well as link you up to the things I’ve been loving – basically a weekly round-up. And thus begins Let Me Tell You This… Last week, the holiday angels up above blessed me with some lucky dust…

The Pestilence: Blog Tour + Giveaway

Finally, there is harmony in the Middle East, but whilst young Samuel Srour is tending to the animals on his small family farm, influential forces set out to demolish the peace. A rocket attack is launched, resulting in the the destruction of the Srour family farm, and a mysterious electrical storm shoots through the skies, travelling the world and originating at the destroyed farm. “The lightning which comes from the east, shines as far as the west, turning night into day.” Whilst Samuel should have been annihilated in the explosion, he instead finds himself with an incredible gift – the…

A #LeedsXmasMeet and the #LaRedouteBloggerXmasParty

My January exams are finally over and thus I am emerging from beneath mounds of mathematical notes like a Phoenix rising from the ashes, which means I can finally update you on two big, fat, fabulous blogger events I went to in December. You may have seen me and a whole bunch of other bloggers tweeting the hashtags #LeedsXmasMeet and #LaRedouteBloggerXmasParty multiple times a day last month. We were pretty excited (as if you couldn’t tell)! Both events were on the same day and so I had a nice, long, fun-filled day with some lovely ladies. After a pretty horrific…

Planning My Year with Stick to Stigu

Let me start with a happy belated new year, and apologies for the lack of blog posts! My January has been incredibly hectic due to it being that horrid time of the year – semester one exams. I’m half way through them now and so wanted to show you what I’m using to plan my 2016. Stick to Stigu kindly sent me their planner* to start my year with, and I can safely say I’ve not loved a planner so much in my life. It’s been kept by my side daily, and I’ve enjoyed planning my days week by week.…
