The Walking Dead Ruled Journals

We’re now almost one whole week into The Walking Dead’s mid-season break (was anyone else totally disappointed with the mid-season finale by the way?!), and if you’re a super fan like me, you’ll be getting impatient already. I have to wait until February? February, really?!  Meanwhile, however, I may have something here to cheer you up just a little bit whilst you wait. Insight Editions have released these undeniably awesome The Walking Dead journals*, and PGUK were kind enough to send me some. They come in different colours with different images on the front, and I am super happy with…

Christmas Clothing I Want to Wear All Year Long

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve never been one to go out of my way to buy some particularly festive fashion on the run up to Christmas. Sure, I’ve got the odd pair of Christmassy socks and I’ve had the occasional pair of pants that feature animals in knitwear (thanks M&S!), but I’ve never gone out of my way to find a cheesy festive piece to take me through December. This year, however, for the first time, I will be spending Christmas in my very own house with my boyfriend – eek! – and I decided that I…

5 Make-Up Magicians You Should Follow on Instagram

Sadly, I am not blessed in the make-up application department. It’s not like I’m really bad and end up with lipstick all over my face and mascara in my eyebrows (not all the time anyway, lol), but neither can I create a wicked smokey eye blend nor chisel my face with exceptional contouring. This doesn’t stop me enjoying make-up or reviewing products that work well for me, but if you want to look for someone with incredible make-up skills, then these are the accounts you need to check out on Instagram… Maya Mia (@maya_mia_y) Of the five make-up extraordinaires I…

Guest Post: Summer Sale Haul – Dos and Don’ts

Today’s post is a guest post by beauty/fashion writer and stylist, Peter Minkoff. Keep reading for some handy sales tips! Fashion has always been a way to project a sense of self. This wearable form of art (and I do dare to call it art as it is nothing but!) has an amazing impact on human psyche, human figure and the overall presentation of someones individuality with all its perks and flaws. By emphasizing the importance of fashion and referring to it as art I am in no way trying to diminish the great artworks in painting, architecture, sculpture, drawing,…

The candle I’ve been reaching for recently is the [M]Botanicals Sandalwood Soy Wax Candle*. This 100% soy wax candle uses high quality, phthalate free fragrance and essential oil blends, and each and everyone is hand poured and made with love. It has a burn…
