March Roundup

My God, is it April already?? Where has the time gone! Spring hasn’t even properly sprung and yet we’re coming to the end of the first quarter of the year! Cripes. Anyway, I’m starting a new kind of post, a monthly round-up. As you can tell by the pictures above, this isn’t about one particular area, but a multitude. From TV and film to beauty and fashion I will be talking about my favourites, loves and new discoveries. WARNING: Serious geekiness is about to ensue… Doctor Who OH EM GEE it’s back!! I know we had the traditional Christmas episode, but I’ve been SO looking forward to this! I love Matt Smith more than is probably considered decent and to top that off the new companion, Oswin, is a character I’ve already grown to adore too. I wasn’t a fan of Amy Pond (I’m aware I may have lost some of you already, but bear with me), but this assistant is sassy, intelligent, brave and a challenge for our beloved Time Lord. The chemistry between …

Figs & Rouge Lipbalm

Figs & Rouge Coco Vanilla Lipbalm Review

Okay, so I know I’ve been a bit MIA at the moment, but there is a very good reason for that. I’ll go into more detail at a later date… Preferably when I’m not sitting at my computer falling asleep against the keyboard. I just wanted to do a quick review on this little gem. I’ve been using it for a few months now and it’s actually a joy to have! It is a scrub for the lips that when rubbed in gently, turns to a kind of Vaseline/gloss. One thing I particularly love is that it isn’t one of these lip products that lasts all of 5 seconds – this balm is wonderful as well as softening and moisturising; it stays on your lips for ages and stops mine from cracking, which is a HUGE issue for me in Winter. It also makes a great base for a lipstick or tint. The only thing that makes it even more amazing is the smell of vanilla. It’s one of my favourite scents and it isn’t …

I’m Loving… Knits

If it’s one thing my mates will always say about me, it’s that I love a good knit. A cardi, a jumper, a dress… I’m all over it. I saw this absolute BEAUTY on the Oasis website, and quite frankly, I need it in my life. I love the neutral colours – browns, creams, greens and greys and this is a perfect example! Plus, it’s fluffy AND, yes, it has SEQUINS. My life is complete. It’s available here at for £55. (Just leave a size 8, please).


I’m Loving… Oasis

I won’t lie, I’m going to end up probably buying all of the above. That’s right, EVERYTHING. If it’s one brand that I love, it’s Oasis. Whether it’s a fluffy jumper (and we all know I ADORE knits), or a dress with an intricately designed print, I love all the products they have to offer. When I buy an item (or 6) of clothing, I expect to get quality for a good price; and you always do with Oasis. I have followed the company since I was about 13 years old and have always particularly loved their knits and party/going out dresses. I wore a beautiful dress that, to this day, I still can’t define the stunning colour. It’s one of my favourite items of clothing I’ve EVER owned, and when wearing it to the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards 2011, I got nothing but compliments. My wish list on their website is growing out of control, but hey, it’s Christmas soon, so I know exactly what I’ll be asking for…! ‘Dear Santa…’

I'm Loving... Kerastase

I’m Loving… Kérastase

It’s been SUCH a long time since I wrote on here. I have full respect for bloggers who can juggle full-time jobs, relationships, social lives, kids and STILL find time to write on their blog! I’ll be posting a lot more soon, though… more info to follow soon! (Oooh, how secretive of me). My post today is on the four Kérastase products that I’ve been using the past 3 weeks. My hair has been to hell and back since the beginning of June, and these products have helped bring it (and me) back to sanity. I made the mistake of trying to dye my hair back to a medium/dark brown. Only, it went black. Not brown/black, but JET black. As a girl who flies her pale flag with pride, I looked just awful! You can imagine what a state it was! I looked like I was barely alive, which is not a style I usually go for. I found a hairdresser who, THANK GOD, managed to bleach my hair and get rid of it. The …


I’m Loving… This Skirt!

I WANT this skirt SO much. I very rarely wear skirts, simply because I believe my legs should be covered for public-decency (har har), but I can’t actually resist this one. They don’t actually have here in Chelmsford, but Im going to get it online. With a pair of kitten heels, and my Benefit Betina to make my legs look smooth and shiny, this is the perfect day skirt. It’s so elegant! I must have it!
