George at Asda Autumn/Winter homeware lust list


I am not a fan of the cold or Autumn/Winter in general so for me it's a perfect excuse for some interior changes to make my home cosy, so I can full on hibernate, trust me I would if I could.
George at Asda is always a favourite for homeware, but for me this time of the year is when they really excel themselves, helping me to up the cosy factor by 100%, and all at a very reasonable price.

So here is what I am currently lusting after from George homeware
George at Asda Autumn/Winter homeware lust list



As you can probably tell, I'm really into my neutral and grey shades at the moment, as my walls are prodimitly whites or greys these items will in fact go anywhere in the house, meaning when I inevitably get bored I can just move stuff around for a fresh look. 
We are about to start decorating our living room to freshen it up and bring it in line with the rest of the down stairs which has been decorated this year. I hate decorating, but I do love the bit after, when the rooms all fresh and we can arrange our furniture and add in the new pieces we have chosen, and all in time for winter and of course CHRISTMAS !

Do you like any of my picks?
Are you freshening up your home for Winter?

I've stopped taking the pill, here's why


I've stopped taking the pill, here's why
Not much to do with the pill, but a cute picture taken in Kos where my outfit matched the building 馃槆


I stopped taking the pill, here’s why


I’ll start with a little backstory to this statement, I started Cerelle, ten years ago after meeting my now husband. Cerelle is one of the progesterone only, or mini pill. I was given this particular pill, due to having issues when I was younger on the combined pill, I could never find one that suited me, many causing me side effects such as headaches, nausea, weight gain and horrible pms.

Clinique even better glow review


When it comes to my base makeup,

I am all about the glow, I am not one for heavy full coverage foundations, preferring a more sheer natural look to my skin, and that is exactly what Clinique promise with their even better glow light reflecting makeup. So if that sounds up your street stick around!

My Dream Teddy Jacket from Newlook




So far this Autumn I have resisted adding to my wardrobe, and have been wearing what I already own, in a bid to discover what is missing from my collection. Despite owning some colourful clothes, often when I do not know what to wear, a default of all black sets in, and for those days I wanted a Jacket that added not only warmth but personality and colour to my outfit.

Autumn plans five things to do this Autumn


Hey you guys, 

I have finally come round to the idea that Summer is over and it is in fact Autumn,  having a late Summer holiday meant I got to hang on to warm sunny weather for longer and tbh that was hard to let go of ! Controversially Summer is my favourite, I know bloggers have to love Autumn but I am a Summer baby, put me on the beach with the sun on my skin and I am happy, having said that I have come round to the idea that Autumn can involve some nice plans and activities.

Clean skin with REN


I have a confession, I'm a skincare junkie! There I've said it, I love skincare, I love trying new brands, new products and new ideas. I also love makeup, but if the canvas isn't at its best nor will the painting be, so for me beauty starts with skincare.

Recently I had the opportunity to try some products from REN, and I can honestly say I am shook, even after only a few weeks I can see and feel a difference in my skin.

So what have I been using ? carry on reading and I'll spill the beans........

Lakitira resort and village Kardamena Kos


We have been back from holiday, but a week and I am already thinking about getting away again. This years summer holiday was two weeks spent at the Lakitira resort, Kardamena, Kos. We love Kos and have visited several times, but this was our first time staying in such a swish hotel. So I thought I would share my thoughts on the hotel, the location, and the facilities.

LANC脭ME Grandi么se mascara 01 Noir Mirifique review


If you could use only one type of makeup product what would it be?



 LANC脭ME Grandi么se mascara 01 Noir Mirifique review

for me, it would be mascara. I just think mascara enhances the eye area and opens up my whole face, going from looking half asleep to looking bright eyed. I have over the years tried many mascaras, I mean loads, some I have loved some I have hated and others I could take or leave. Recently I felt like I wanted something new, like my current mascaras where just not making the cut, and with perfect timing I went on holiday, what better place to pick up new makeup then Stansted Duty Free. Upon a little research I decided I wanted to try  LANC脭ME Grandi么se mascara, so picked it up at the reduced price and took it on holiday, the perfect testing ground.
