New Look Wishlist

Recently, I've been doing really well on my spending ban. Thanks to avoiding the shops like the plague and deactivating my 'shopping email address' from my phone (and yes, I do have a whole email address dedicated to online shopping and their pesky sales/deals/promotion newsletters), on the whole I've been pretty good.

Until this week when I had to pop out to buy some bedding for our new bed. Armed with my bedding, I left Debenhams and made a beeline for the exit, but my subconscious had other ideas and before I knew it I was in the door of New Look out of total habit. Honestly, not a conscious decision.

They're not silly New Look, their best pieces of course were in the front of the store pulling me in and once I was in, I was hooked. I wanted everything.

Their stock right now is amazing from bikinis to bomber jackets. Phoning a friend (literally) to distract myself, I managed to walk out with nothing but couldn't stop thinking about everything I saw in store that day so of course, what better way to online window shop than to write a wishlist.

What's in my makeup bag - Vlog

Slowly but surely, I'm getting through the points on my 2016 plans and goals post. One of them was to start YouTube, which I have now finaaaaaaally done! Wahoooo! It only took me a year...

This video was requested via Twitter; a look into my makeup bag of my everyday skincare and everyday makeup. It's a topic I always love when watching other people's vlogs, everyone loves a peak into someone else's makeup bags!

Cosmopolitan, The Fragrance Review

I'm always slightly nervous trying out a perfume that I haven't previously smelt before, but when I heard about Cosmopolitan's new fragrance to encapsulate their reader's, the fun, fearless female, I had to test it out.

Cosmopolitan describe their new fragrance as,  
"The Cosmopolitan woman’s zest for life is captured in fresh sparkling top notes of mandarin, bergamot and red berries. Then comes the surprisingly seductive heart: hypnotic night- blooming jasmine and the powdery sweetness of heliotrope. Pimento berries give it a rich shot of spice, while carrot seed offers something earthy and unexpected. The base will linger on your skin long after you’ve sprayed, with powerful patchouli, comforting vanilla and the tobacco-like qualities of tonka."

Merumaya Gentle Exfoliating Toner Review

Since I started blogging, I've been much more interested to learn more about skincare and find a proper routine that actually works for me, and stick to it. After a lot of experimenting, I feel like I almost have my perfect skincare routine but the only thing missing was a toner. I've tried out quite a few and I have to say, I've found them all a bit meh. I haven't felt like I've found out that genuinely makes a difference to my skin so it tends to be the step I always miss out.

I had recently reviewed the Merumaya Iconic Youth Serum (you can read it here) and fell in love with the brand, so when I was told about their Gentle Exfoliating Toner, I definitely wanted to give it a try.

Slutty Blondie Brownie Recipe

I could sit on Pinterest for absolutely hours pinning amazing dessert recipes. My obsession with brownies has been a long love affair, but only recently have I become obsessed with cookie dough since I made the big mistake of going to Creams cafe.
My family are all seriously into food and baking is a love we all share. When I'm back at my parent's house, I love to bake with them (mainly because they're better than me!), so whilst at home this weekend, my brother and I made these incredible Slutty Blondie Brownies.
This absolutely amazing dessert consists of a layer of gooey cookie dough on the bottom, then a layer of Golden Oreo's followed by a big thick layer of golden brownies (blondies) with white chocolate chips.

You'll need a sweet tooth for these but I have to say, they are absolutely delicious!
