My Everyday Silver Collection and My New Gemporia Ring

If you follow my blog or Instagram then you might notice that in all my snaps I pretty much always have a ring on. Call me obsessed but I can't seem to go a day without wearing at least one piece of jewellery, whether that's a ring, earrings or a necklace (but usually the delightful combination of all three). I thought I'd give you a look at the pieces that have withstood the brunt of daily wear, as well as a new piece kindly sent over to me by the people at Gemporia that I absolutely love the look of.

Now Playing: Sleep Playlist

Now Playing / Sleep Playlist

Sometimes I need a little help to fall asleep and when that happens I like to turn to my trusty Sleep playlist. Here I've cut it down to the four songs that are almost guaranteed to knock me out. I dare you to get to the last song on this list without yawning - in a good way, of course.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water


Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water review

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water review

Sorry if you're all fed up with the countless micellar cleansing water posts across the Internet, but I've been using this one by Garnier for a while now and thought it was about time I shared my thoughts. If we used to think BB creams were infiltrating the market then these all-in-one, no-water-necessary cleansers seem to be an equally invasive relation.

Bath Heaven: Creightons Vanilla Macadamia Bath & Shower Cream

Creightons Vanilla Macadamia Bath & Shower Cream

Stress levels are high in Leeds right now. Dissertations are being dissertated, the libraries never sleep and everyone hates you if you say 'Nah, I'm not that worried about work. How about you?' One day when I was in my home away from home (the library), my friends surprised me with this little treat as a pick-me-up and for that I'm eternally grateful. I'd never heard of Creightons before, but you can find them in budget friendly places like Morrisons, Home Bargains and Iceland. I've seen prices for this particular bath and shower cream vary from £1 to £2.49, so you'll be happy to hear it's not going to cripple you with debt.

Book Review: The Goldfinch

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt Review

I picked up Donna Tartt's The Goldfinch a while ago without knowing anything about it apart from that it won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize and it weighs about the same as a small brick. I've only just gotten around to finishing it and my feelings are mixed. With 864 pages it's less of a goldfinch and more of an ostrich (only without the speed) and I'm going to try to keep spoilers to a minimum here, but the sheer size of the thing means I can't say anything without giving away 100 odd pages or so. Bear with me.

Berlin Street Art

Hackesche Höfe, Berlin

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram then you might know that I just got back from an incredible few days in Berlin. I went with six of my friends for one of their 21st's, so I only managed to take my iPhone with me as it was all go go go from start to finish. I did, however, manage to take a few photos of Berlin's amazing street art tucked away behind the Hackesche Höfe courtyards in Mitte, as well as some sections of the Berlin Wall's East Side Gallery.

NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder

NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder

I'm a massive NARS fan so it pains me to write this post, but I've actually found a product of theirs that I don't like. I always rant and rave to friends about how NARS is the best make up brand out there, yet each time I fail to mention this powder I picked up a couple years ago and why I didn't get on with it. So the time's come for me to 'fess up and explain what I found so disappointing about the Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder.
