Birthday Bloopers!

Before I started blogging, I had no idea the work that goes into photographing an outfit! To achieve the perfection you see in my OOTD (yeah right), it requires at least half an hour of a very patient boyfriend taking upwards of a hundred photos of a blogger getting increasingly frustrated with her inability to smile on camera… Eventual result: five to ten fabulous photos!

Wanna see when it doesn’t go so well? Of course you do!

For starters, I call this one ‘The Awkward Ghost’… Continue reading

Happy Birthday To Me!

Good morning! It’s my birthday, and I’m 22 today!

There’ll be some amusing little treats for you up on the blog a little later today, but this is just a slightly more normal birthday post!

Since I’m actually fairly busy today (more on that later), I threw a little party on Saturday night – very small, by my standards, it wasn’t even fancy dress! A grown-up Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, with gorgeous cocktails in teapots and far too many desserts…

Apologies for the low quality pictures, I managed to forget my camera!

Nails of the Day: A England Fated Prince

Today I’ve got another gorgeous polish from my most recent A England haul: one from the Burne-Jones Dream collection: Fated Prince. This is a granite-grey polish, but it leans slightly olive-green, and has a beautiful gold-orange flash. As with all A England holos, it’s so difficult to capture how beautiful this polish really is, but I’ll have a go… Continue reading

If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you’ll know that I love rose products, so I was thrilled to be given this cute little Rose bubble bar in my Lush #Oxmeet goody bag – and to be honest with you, I’ve already stocked up on a couple more! Continue reading

Another Liebster Award!

So, I was recently very kindly nominated for another Liebster Award by two lovely bloggers, Ellie from theellieraeraeblog and Katie from A Circle of Beauty. Both these girls are relatively new on the blogging scene, so you should definitely go check them out!

I’m going to skip doing the facts, because as you know, I hate doing them, and also, I don’t want you to get too bored!

Just one quick note – I appreciate every award that is given to me so, so much, but I feel like I’m getting a bit too old for the Liebster award, which is intended to highlight new blogs with fewer followers. I love that you’re thinking of me, but I’d rather you saved the nomination to support someone newer if you can find them! 🙂

Still, on to the questions!

Review: Argan Dew Haircare*

 

Believe it or not, despite all the hype I’d never actually tried any argan oil products on my hair, so I jumped at the chance to try out some haircare from Argan Dew. Argan Dew were kind enough to send me samples of their Miraculous Argan Oil Daily Hair Treatment*, and their Replenishing Hair Mask*, both of which I’m really impressed by!
