Book Wishlist!

We all know I have a book problem. I went to Manchester for the weekend, read one book and bought one more. I went to Cheltenham for a week, took one book with me (which I didn’t read) and brought 6 books back with me (also none of which I have read yet). I buy…

Stranger Things Review & other Netflix Spookies

Eeeek, I missed 5 days of Blogtober, sorry guys! I thought it was only going to be 2 days whilst I was visiting friends for the weekend, that’ll teach me to be more organised in future! This post is for other people like me that tend to avoid bandwagons when they come along. Whilst I…

#18 – Teen/YA Books for the Spooky Season!

Up until about 6 months ago when I had to convince my manager that I was a serious bookseller who reads serious books, my main literary love was the teen section in bookshops. Sadly, I haven’t read a YA book in the past 6 months, but, figured it’d be a great springboard for Blogtober as…

#14 – SPOOKTOBER Scary Book Review – Hex by Thomas Olde Heuvelt

So I should probably start this by saying that I am not good at scary films or scary Buzzfeed articles or scary anything, in all honesty. I am what you might call a big fat wuss. But, I have always been oddly fascinated with these scary things, perhaps like a fear-fascination catch-22. You can often…

#13 – LUSH Seasonal Products Mini Haul & First Impressions

I told myself that I was going to be restrained when it came to Lush Christmas/Hallowe’en products this year…but we all know I was never likely to stick to that! Their seasonal range has been out since the 6th October in stores, and less than a week later I have a pretty good haul going…

BLOGTOBER #11: LUSH Jelly Masks Review!

I can’t believe I haven’t written this post already! I’ve owned a few of Lush’s new jelly masks since they came out a few months ago and I absolutely love all of them! I own Bunny Moon, which is the first one I purchased, as well as The Birth of Venus and 1000 Millihelens.  …

BLOGTOBER #10: My High-End Make-Up Collection

A completely unrelated point to this blog-post, but I’m currently working at Cheltenham Literary Festival for the week (incredibly spontaneously, only having been asked about it yesterday!) and I may have to skip a few days of Blogtober as I’m likely to be working 15hr+ shifts every day whilst I’m here. I’m trying to schedule…

BLOGTOBER #9: Daily Make-Up Routine

I remember when, less than three years ago, my entire make-up routine would take a maximum of 5 minutes. No contouring, no highlight, no brow products. Those were the days! And, actually, perhaps surprisingly, I don’t look too bad in my graduation photos, or the photos from any night out at university. Maybe there’s something…

BLOGTOBER #8: Lord of Misrule LUSH Shower Cream Review

I can’t wait to get my hands on Lush’s new seasonal products when they’re released in my local Lush store next week, so I thought I’d do a review of a product I’ve still got left over from last year’s Christmas haul. I’m one of those mad ‘lushies’ that stockpiles Lush seasonal products so we…
