Britney Spears 'Private Show' - unboxing and first impressions

Hello there, my loves! It's been a little while since my last unboxing and first impressions posts, mainly because I haven't actually bought a lot of perfumes this year! There haven't been too many exciting fragrance launches lately, although I have seen quite a few of my blogger friends rave about the new scent by Britney Spears, 'Private Show' (£15 for 30ml, allbeauty.com). I'm not typically a huge Britney fan, but I do enjoy her perfumes - they're always so girly, likable and sweet. My lovely boyfriend got me a bottle of this as a surprise gift, and today, I will be sharing with you my honest thoughts on this fragrance. Hope you enjoy!

Autumn favourites 2016! Lipsticks, toffee lattes + tamagotchis!

Hello there, my sweet muffins! I know that everyone's been saying this already, but how are we already nearly in December?! This year has to be the quickest one yet; I remembering talking about my November 2015 favourites like it was yesterday! Christmas is just round the corner now, but since we're still in autumn, I wanted to share with you some of this season's favourites. Today, we're going to talk about everything from makeup and skincare products, to retro 90's toys - hope you enjoy!

Blogging organisation tips, shortcuts + the ultimate blog post checklist!

Hello there, my beauties! I hope that you're all having a wonderful week. Today, we're going to talk about what's likely one of the least fun (but also one of the most important!) parts of being a blogger - planning, scheduling and organizing your posts. If, like myself, you are a busy person with a full-time job, you may find it a little difficult to always keep your blog organised and stick to a posting schedule. I still find it quite challenging at times, but there are a few practical tips and tricks that help me stay organised, especially during busy periods. Today, I'd like to share them with you - hope you find them useful!

Korean beauty haul!

Hey there, my beauties! I hope that you're all having a wonderful weekend. Today, I'm bringing you another (and hopefully slightly less awkward!) YouTube video! When I saw that my local TK Maxx opened a Korean skincare section, I got really excited and went on a little shopping spree! Korean beauty products get a lot of attention and praise in the blogosphere, and I was really happy to finally be able to try some of them for myself. In this video, we're talking about face masks, eye patches and banana-shaped night creams! Hope you enjoy!

Blogger Recognition Award! Why I started blogging + some blogging wisdom!

Hey there, beauties! I hope that you're all having a beautiful week so far. Today, I'm really excited to be doing the Blogger Recognition Award tag. I'd like to thank my fellow blogger and a dear friend Andrea for nominating me! I wholeheartedly recommend that you check out her lovely blog, A Glimpse of Glam. She writes the most amazing fashion posts with a personal twist, and is a true inspiration for myself and many other bloggers! I was so excited to be nominated for this award tag, as it does look quite interesting and different from the usual beauty tags. I hope you enjoy!

Urban Decay Vice Metallized & Comfort Matte lipsticks - review + swatches!

Hey, beauties! Today, I'm really excited to talk to you about these gorgeous Vice lipsticks by Urban Decay (£15, Debenhams). I was always intrigued by the Vice range - with over 100 (!) shades and six different finishes to choose from, it seems that Urban Decay have really catered for every preference and taste. It was difficult to pick out only two shades for the review (I wish I could afford all of them!), but I decided to go for Moshpit from the Comfort Matte line-up, and Peyote from the Metallized range. Urban Decay claims that these lipsticks offer 'unbelievable pigmentation in just one swipe', and nourishing formula enriched with avocado, aloe vera and jojoba oil. It definitely sounds very promising, and I could not be more excited to try these. Hope you enjoy!

I'm on Youtube! + 'Get To Know Me' tag

Hey, lovelies! I have some very exciting news for you today - I've finally started my own YouTube channel! YouTube is something that I always wanted to branch out into, but for the longest time I felt too shy, and didn't think that I'd be any good at it. I'm still very nervous about publishing my first video (I'm really not used to being on camera!), but I'm also excited and happy to have finally given it a shot. Today is just a little introduction video, combined with a 'Get To Know Me' tag, which I thought would be a fun way to start. Hope you enjoy!
