Spring Favourites! Peaches, Makeup & Unicorn Mugs


Hello, my loves! Today, I am very excited to be sharing with you my spring favourites and this time, we will be talking about a lot more than just beauty products. Spring is by far my favourite season - I love the sunshine, blossoming flowers, and watching the whole world come to life after those gloomy, cold winter months. Spring is also the season when me and my better-half celebrate our anniversary, and we always make sure to do something really special for it. This year, we will relaxing on the sunny beaches of the Algarve in Portugal, and I honestly couldn't be more excited! It's going to be my first 'proper' beach holiday, so expect a lot of photos! Anyway, onto the favourites - I hope you enjoy them, in a slightly new format!

Why I Lost Interest In Blogging & How To Get It Back


Hello there, my beauties! It's been a little while since my last post; and if you follow me on Twitter, you might know that it's because I decided to take a short break from both blogging and social media. For anyone that's been blogging for a while, you are probably familiar with the feeling of burning out, and hitting a 'creative wall' with your content. This is something that I have been experiencing quite a lot, especially in the recent months. Blogging can be so awesome - it's a passion, a labour of love; but sometimes you get a little tired of it, and it becomes a chore. Maybe you aren't getting the traffic you want, or maybe you are struggling to come up with fresh ideas for your content (this is definitely something I am guilty of). At the same time, you don't just want to abandon it all because of all the time, energy and love that you have put into it. It can be disheartening, especially when you feel like it's all going nowhere. This is why I decided to take a little break from the virtual world, and try to figure out some ways to rekindle my love for blogging. A week of soul-searching later, and I feel a lot more positive about it all, which is what I want to talk to you about today. So, the question of the day is - how to fall in love with your blog again?

A New Modern Classic? Guerlain 'Mon Guerlain' Perfume Review + First Impressions!


Hello there, my beauties! It's been a long while since my last 'Unboxing and First Impressions' post, mostly because so far this year, I haven't actually bought a single perfume! I am quite happy with my collection as it is now, and I promised myself to only purchase a new fragrance if I really love it. Mon Guerlain is the most recent launch by one of my all-time favourite, classic designers - Guerlain. I have talked about their perfumes quite a lot in my  prettiest bottles post and  various fragrance recommendations. I was really excited for this new launch, and my wonderful boyfriend was kind enough to buy it for me as a surprise gift! Today, I will be sharing with you my honest thoughts on this fragrance. Hope you enjoy!

Recent Skincare Discoveries + Mini Reviews!


Hello, lovelies! Today, I wanted to share with you some of my latest skincare discoveries. It's quite rare for me to feature skincare reviews on my blog, mainly because I don't consider myself to be that knowledgeable in the subject. I love reading about skincare on other blogs, but when it comes to my own product choices, I kind of just go with whatever seems good (or has cute packaging!). Today, I thought I'd share with you some general thoughts on my recent skincare acquisitions. Hope you enjoy!

I Heart Spring Tag!


Hello there, my lovelies! Spring is just around the corner now, and I decided to celebrate it with a little spring-themed tag! This 'I Heart Spring' tag was originally created by Ingrid Nilsen on YouTube, and it includes all sorts of interesting beauty, fashion and lifestyle related questions. I have really enjoyed reading this tag on other blogs, and thought that it could be a fun way to welcome the upcoming season. Hope you enjoy!

Spring Perfume Recommendations 2017!


Hello there, my lovelies! Spring is just around the corner, and I honestly couldn't be happier! British winters aren't very exciting - the days are cold and gloomy, and we don't ever get any real snow (just a lot of rain). Spring is probably my favourite season - I think that there are just so many things to love about it! Longer days, more sunshine, blossoming flowers and fluffy ducklings...  Aside from finally ditching the heavy winter boots, one of the main things I look forward to the most is changing up my perfume wardrobe. Whilst winter is perfect for fragrances that are quite intense, bold and sweet; spring is all about floral, light and refreshing scents. Today, I'd like to share with you a few of my top picks for springs. Hope you enjoy!

Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Modern Renaissance' Detailed Review + Swatches!


Hello, jelly beans! Today, I am very excited to be bringing you another makeup review. If you have been visiting Shoes and Glitter for a while, you might know that eyeshadow palettes are my biggest weakness when it comes to makeup. I already have way more than I could ever need, but I simply cannot resist a pretty palette! Anastasia Beverly Hills' Modern Renaissance (£40, BeautyBay) has been incredibly popular in the blogosphere, and also on my radar ever since I found out about it. I was immediately drawn to the warm, rich tonality of this palette, inspired by the vibrant colours of the Renaissance - berry reds, pinks and rich taupes. Today, I am very excited to share with you my honest thoughts on this palette - hope you enjoy!
