A Chat About Happiness

It's crazy how the minute you step away from a toxic situation, the better you feel. I've talked about the issues going on in my life recently a few times now (you can read here and here if you're interested) so I'm not going to talk about it here, but I do want to write a bit about how I'm feeling now. It's been two weeks since I left that place and those people behind, and I feel so much better for it.

Giving Green Eyeshadow a Try

We all know I'm not the most adventurous with makeup. More and more I've been upping my confidence, such as wearing nude lipsticks (I always used to think I couldn't pull them off and now they're practically all I wear) or warm eyeshadows (I always thought orange or rust colours would look awful but I love them), but one thing I've never really done is wear a colour on my eyes. As in, an 'unnatural' colour. Such as green...

Merci Mon Cheri

Yes this tee is everywhere, yes I still had to have it. What can I say, it's a lot cheaper than the Gucci tee it's obviously modelled after! Anywhere, here's another outfit from my trip to Barcelona. I ditched the floaty dresses and playsuits and went for a classic tee and denim combo...

A Purifying Cleanser to Try

I've been faithful to the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel for nearly two years now, but as I was running low I had the bizarre notion to try something new. As you guys might now, I've been struggling with a lot of breakouts on my skin recently, and even though I don't think the Oskia is causing it at all, I didn't think it would hurt to try something that supposedly helps with problem skin. And guess what, I actually really like it...

The Bardot Dress of Dreams

This post is a shout out to all the people out there with big boobs who just can't wear bardot tops or dresses. You know the struggle - you can't wear them with a normal bra, strapless bras suck (or maybe that one is just on me!), and often going braless means a weird shapeless mess that ruins that style of the top. But your prayers have been answered folks, because this dress is a good'un...

That Midi Skirt Again

Let's kick off my Barcelona outfit posts with something you've seen before. Yep, it's that skirt again. I know I posted an outfit featuring this midi skirt not too long ago, but I like to keep things real here and show you all what I actually wear. And I actually wear this skirt a lot because it's so damn pretty and effortless. Here's how I styled it...

Barcelona in Snapshots

Of course I had to put a post together about my trip to Barcelona! I wouldn't call this a guide, as I've not got a big list of everything we did, but I do still want to share the trip and offer a few suggestions (and an excuse to share pretty photos). I've tried to limit the pictures as much as possible but it's such a gorgeous place, I couldn't resist throwing a lot in! It was a lovely trip and I really want to go back already, so it was fun to reminisce over the sights. Here goes...

Barcelona in Outfits

As some of you may know, I went to Barcelona! I've got a post coming up telling you all about the sights (and food), but for now I wanted to do a little post on my outfits. There will be some upcoming posts with all the deets on my personal faves, but for now here's a glance at everything I wore in the prettiest city...

Holiday Beauty Essentials

As this post goes live, I'm getting ready to head back to Scotland after a week in Barcelona! While I'm in the midst of packing, I thought I'd give a run down of my favourite beauty bits I'm taking to deal with the heat. It's mainly an excuse to show off the travel minis...

The July Post

So June was a weird month. I handed my notice in at work, booked a holiday (which I'm currently on!) and finally started packing up my bedroom in the flat I can't stand. It was filled with some gorgeous sunny days but also some downpours in which aforementioned work flooded. So, while I sun myself - thank heavens for scheduled posts - here's a look at the month ahead...
