September Love List!





Hello lovelies! How has your first month of 'back to school' been? Even if you're not in school/uni (umm lucky you!) the non-summer routine has surely been a bit of a shock to get back into for most people, me included, and so I've basically spent September freaking out over how much I have to do now (...translation: How little time I have to watch supernatural episodes now hahaha!) I do love the Autumn though, it's one of my favourite times of the year for pretty much everything, clothes, scents, autumnal makeup, the weather (although you'd be surprised at how many people are looking to Christmas already!) Like woahhh we haven't even had halloween yet, but I kid you not,someone in my class was playing 'Deck the Halls' yesterday. Anyway, I'll stop blabbing now, and get on with my Love List for September, which has quite a few bits and pieces I can't wait to show you!

7 Ways to survive those 'Grey Days'

Sometimes we all have what I like to call 'Grey Days.' They pop up when you least expect them and to put it plainly... they absolutely suck. 
It's a mixture of everything for me, school stress, friend troubles and even insecurities of mine that wouldn't usually bother me day-to-day will feel 100x worse. It's those days where your best friends can't seem to cheer you up, your favourite hobby (even blogging!) isn't fun and you lack motivation to do anything other than hide under the duvet, sniffling, all day. It's also a day when your self-esteem just...plummets. I'm the kind of person that over-analyses everything, from a look someone gives me in the street to if I sense one of my friends are slightly 'off' with me. This is getting hella deep now, but I've always had a fear at the back of my mind that I'm too boring for people, average and unapproachable, and on grey days it really makes me panic about how I should act or what I'm saying even if it's just a casual conversation to one of my best friends. It's silly and pointless worrying about but feeling like this from time to time is pretty inevitable, and I know other people go through the same thing. So here's another post in my positivity series: '7 Ways to survive those Grey Days.'

Benefit HighBeam // Review + swatches!

Heyyy lovelies! What? Another review? Yep haha, I couldn't miss reviewing (or raving!) about this lil' gem on my blog since it really has become a staple in my makeup collection lately. I have quite a few Benefit pieces but surprisingly I had never tried High Beam until I popped it into my shopping basket online last month. Some people love liquid highlighters, others hate it but today I thought I'd share with you my thoughts on this Benefit Highlighter plus some swatches too!

Just Bee Drinks // Review!


Hello lovelies! So a couple of weeks back a little box of goodies arrived on my doorstep sent from Just Bee containing the three drinks I'm going to review today. I'm the kind of person who pretty much just lives off of tea and water (yes how very british!) the fanciest thing I ever do to my water really is pop a few lemon slices in so I'm always on the lookout for ways to spice up my water like this. Just Bee Drinks are a range of refreshing spring water drinks, 'enriched with a single drop of honey,' natural antioxidants and are under 50 calories. They come in three different delicious-sounding flavours, Apple and Ginger, Lemon and Green tea and Blueberry that you can see above which I've been trying over the past few weeks and well, this is how I got on! Oh and little note, all these pics seem to feature my baby succulents hahaha (but hey, they do look cute!)

A Complete Guide to Twitter Chats // Blogging Chatter 03

Hey lovelies! My last couple of posts in this new blogging series seemed really popular so I thought I'd get writing a 3rd for you all today : A Guide to Twitter Chats. I love twitter. A lot. In fact I'm pretty much addicted to it and I can't believe I  didn't join it sooner than because it introduced me to one of my favourite things about blogging...twitter chats! I know exactly how confusing the whole idea of twitter chats can be so in this post I'm just going to chat you through everything from the absolute basics of what it is, why I love it so much, and tips for hosting one of your own. There's even a lil' twitter chat weekly calendar that I've made later on so even if you're used to all of this you can still keep up to date with all the fun chats going on during the week! Enjoy lovelies, and I hope this helps a few of you out (since I really do wish I had read something like this first hehe!)
