Reed Diffuser

Having grown up in a house that was always filled with candles, flowers and thought-out details, I find great enjoyment in filling my own space in our university house with similar homely touches. There’s no easier way to bring a lovely fresh scent into a room than with a reed diffuser and this Ö Diffuser from Skandinavisk does the perfect job.

Breakfast in bed on a Sunday morning, with a catch up of my week. This time I’m talking about getting back to yoga, the Valentine’s Day hype and passing my driving test.

Make-up bag

The majority of the products that fill my everyday make up bag are on their 5th, 6th, 7th… re-purchase but there’s also a couple of new additions that have made the cut straight onto my essentials list. These are my go-to products for creating an everyday look, although there’s a couple of variations for a day-to-night transition. In other words, all the essentials!

Well it was certainly a very different kind of night out. When the lovely team at Clue HQ Manchester invited me to have a go at their latest ‘live escape room’, I wasn’t short of volunteers to join in. As a group of first-timers we were challenged with the Detonation game and despite little knowledge of what to expect, we all thoroughly enjoyed our hour of laughs, frights and challenges.

skincare products

Despite swearing by a handful of drugstore skincare products for over two years, the last few months have seen me switch-up my daily routine multiple times in search of a solution for my grumpy, winter skin. I’ve been moaning about spots and dry skin despite following all the skincare golden rules (drink enough water, get enough sleep, skip the make-up… you know the drill) so I decided it was about time that I turned to some new products. I’m really happy with how this trio of products have been helping me out recently.

I can’t stop dreaming of going shopping. Like actual, feel the fabric and try stuff on shopping. Maybe it’s the endless hours I’ve spent at my laptop reading strategy textbooks that have me fantasising of real-life interactions and a chance to wander around shops guilt-free. As a consolation, my revision breaks consist of online shopping or more specifically, scrolling the pages of ASOS in search of my latest fashion obsession: a suede biker jacket.

yoga

I’ve always held the idea of practicing yoga in high regard, with massive respect to those who power through hours of balance, stretching and movement. In 2016 I got the yoga bug and began discovering the far-reaching benefits for myself. Hey, I even got my own yoga mat!

Blogger EventA new clothing brand on the scene always gets me excited, especially when I get the opportunity to find out more at a Christmas themed launch (complete with mulled wine and cupcakes, may I add).
