May Reading List: Katie Fforde and Clare Mackintosh


So far I have managed to keep up my resolution of reading more books and once again I have managed to read two books in May. 

Food, Fitbit and Thoughts from May


May has been a bit of a learning curve for me, I have been working on changing certain aspects of my life and basically trying to get my shit together. 

April Reading List: Sophie Kinsella and Austin Wright


From a young age I have always been an avid reader, I have my mother to thank for that. This was a trait that continued into adulthood and I would read anything, from any genre, there were so many books I would recommend to my Mother and vice versa. However as I approached my late twenties, I found my time being taken up by so many other things that months would go by before I picked up a book. 

Revlon ColorStay Creme Eyeshadow


We all have certain brands that we go back to for certain products. For me, Revlon has always been for the infamous ColorStay foundation, which is still part of my collection, and their variety of lip products. I had never considered Revlon for eye products.

Every Day Make-up for Work


When my alarm goes of at 6am in the morning the first thing I think of is 'more sleep' and then hit the snooze button repeatedly. This is probably why I have 9, yes NINE, alarms set to make me get up in the morning. That's also why I have perfected an easy 15 minute make-up routine that means I can catch those extra ZZZ's.

How do I deal with Migraines

I remember having my first migraine some 6 years ago, I'd never felt pain like it. Then I began getting them every damn week. The doctors tried to help, I've had my pill changed 3 times, been put on beta blockers and even tried prescription pain relief. Unfortunately, Migraines and severe headaches run in the family so I have no escape. I thought I would share my tips on dealing with Migraines and how I try and avoid them.

Be Bold In Blue - MS Awareness Week


 Today marks the beginning of MS awareness week, which is running from 24th - 30th April 2017. This year their campaign is themed BE BOLD IN BLUE, a colour naturally associated with the MS Trust.

Afternoon Tea at Stoke Rochford Hall


Afternoon tea is one of those quintessentially British things that most of us enjoy. The delicate finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam and of course, the pots of tea.   

2017, the year of me


With the start of a New Year comes the age old tradition of New Years Resolutions. The loose weight, join a gym, stop smoking etc and then we have those who stand by the saying page 1 of 365, new year new me type of affirmations. But not for me.

MAC Haul


When I heard that a new MAC store had opened in Queensgate, Peterborough, I knew immediately that I needed to check it out.
