Embroidery styling 

Embroidery has been such a huge statement in fashion over the past few months and it doesn’t seem like it’s ending anytime soon. I love the colours in this shirt and wanted to pair it with white jeans but as it isn’t even spring yet and we are still getting winter vibes I decided to add some timberlands to it.

My skincare routine

Having a consistent skincare routine is so so important to keeping your skin looking fresh and glowy. I’ve decided to share the products I am using at the minute and absolutely loving.

After trying out so many drugstore products that just do not work for me I decided to splurge on some more high end products. I feel like you can’t really put a price on skincare as it is so important. Of course if drugstore stuff works for you then go you! but for me it just doesn’t work on my skin. I picked up this Liz Earle set specifically for dry/sensitive skin in my local boots store for £45 which includes the very famous cleanse and polish, skin tonic, moisturiser, an exfoliator and two muslin cloths.


I don’t use makeup wipes to remove my makeup as they do not remove all the product at all and also they’re just so so drying on my face. So the first thing I do is just wash my face with water to remove most of my makeup then I pump some of the cleanse and polish on to my fingers and rub it in to my face and then wipe my face with a wet muslin cloth.


The next step I do is take a cotton wool pad and pour some of the tonic boost on to it and rub this all over my face, this step always shocks me as you look at the pad after and see how much makeup is on there even after you thought it was all off, another reason why makeup wipes are no good!!


Then I use the moisturiser and oh my god my face feels amazing! It leaves your skin feeling so hydrated but it also soaks in quite quick which is what I like. I think this is now my holy grail moisturiser, up until now it was always the benefit one for me but this one is 100 times better!


I do this routine every night but not every morning as my skin is quite sensitive I don’t like to overload it with products. Sometimes I will do it in the morning it all just depends on how my skin is at the time but usually I just wash my face with water and apply my moisturiser.

I don’t use the exfoliator everyday, I use it about once a week it depends on how my skin is as although I got the set specifically for dry/sensitive skin the exfoliator is just for any skin type so I don’t want it to be too harsh for my skin.


Aswell as using these liz earle products I also drinks lots of water, at least 2 litres a day and I wear factor 50 suncream every single day on my face, so many people underestimate how much damage the sun actually does to your skin even in the winter , wearing suncream will help keep your skin looking youthful. I do also suffer from an allergy to the sun causing my face to come out in a rash which is why I use such a high factor. I have the sunsense sun cream which is not oily at all it leaves your skin with a slight glow and it can be worn alone or under makeup, I really recommend it for a face suncream!


Thanks for reading and feel free to leave a comment telling me your best skincare products! I’m looking for some good face masks at the minute so please recommend!!

Christmas gift ideas

Christmas is literally around the corner so what a perfect time for me to create a christmas gift list full of ideas of presents you could get for someone else or things you want to ask santa for! I always look for inspiration of what other people ask for when it comes to buying gifts for people so hopefully this will come in handy for you all and hopefully there is something for everyone!

Okay so the first present just has to be this Too Faced Grand Hotel christmas gift set which comes with three christmas scented eyeshadow palettes and a mini better than sex mascara. Oh my god when I first came across this in debenhams I wanted to cry the colours in the palettes are soooo beautiful!! This is perfect for any Too Faced lover and just any girl who loves makeup! It is £46 which seems a lot but for the amount of products you get it is such good value. Unfortunately it is currently sold out on debenhams website but they are restocking!! Or go and check your local store!


This next one might seem quite random but if you have a girlfriend or mum etc a nice watch is a lovely present (obviously depending on your budget) personally I think a good watch is such an investment! I have been eyeing up this Marc Jacobs rose gold one forever it is just so pretty and I love the big face! It is £159 which sounds like a lot but when you compare that to the price a mans designer watch is it’s crazy!! Also, watches like this will last a lifetime. They’re timeless pieces.



Now of course a perfume just had to be included, what’s christmas without a new perfume!! And this is the one that is definitely on my list. My friend has just recently purchased this and I was with her when she got it and ohhhh my god it is amazing ever since then it’s been on my christmas list! I have had other paco rabanne perfumes like black xs and they’re just always so nice and fresh smelling. I always change my perfumes but I still have so many that I love. I don’t really like overly expensive perfumes as for some reason to me personally they’re always too musky smelling and I prefer sweet smells. Another perfume to consider is Jimmy Choo/Blossom I have been using that for over a year now and I still absolutely love it!


If you’re from the UK then you probably already love boots christmas gift sets so I have just picked out a few that I think make lovely presents that are so affordable! So first up is this soap and glory she’s the gloss kit. It includes 4 of their sexy mother pucker lipglosses which are really really good! at £14 it is a perfect stocking filler.


The next one is this little Ted Baker ‘double the dazzle’ lipstick and nail varnish duo, again this is a perfect stocking filler and is only £8! It comes in different shades from pink to red and the packaging is so pretty and makes it seem pricier than it actually was!


I will do some more of these types of posts in the run up to christmas perhaps one targeted at men, another about presents you can get on a budget etc! I hope you enjoyed reading this and it has helped you if you’re struggling with present ideas!

Thanks as always for reading X

My gym routine

Okay so for todays post I thought I would do something a little different and post about what I do at the gym. I am by no means trying to tell you this is what you should be doing I am not a professional just sharing what works for me! Before I started the gym I found it helpful to see what other girls do. I am not trying to lose weight just tone up and build muscle.

I don’t train different parts on different days like I know most people do as I don’t have the time so I just do it all at once!



So to start with I like to warm my body up by doing about 5 minutes on the cross trainer, I don’t spend too long on here as truthfully I find it quite boring but it’s really good for so many different parts of your body and helps warm you and your muscles up.

Then I like to do some arm workouts, most gyms will have a few of these machines and they are so good! I like the fact you can change the weight as I am so weak (lol). If you don’t feel comfortable doing such exercises in a room full of men then see if your local gym has a womens only part, mine does and it is so useful sometimes when the main gym is too intimidating!


I then like to go back to cardio using the treadmill, I have always been a huge lover of running ever since I was little I was part of my schools cross country team so I love using this machine. Interval training is my favourite way to use this machine as for me personally I get better results from doing a fast sprint for a minute and then doing a fast incline walk rather than staying the same. I don’t want to loose much weight so my main reason for using this machine is purely to keep up my fitness levels.



After this I will finish off with some hip abductor workouts, sit ups, plank, weights etc..



I am aware my following is mainly for beauty but please let me know if you enjoyed this post and I will happily do more!

Also any tips and workouts will be highly appreciated!

Thanks for reading.
