SEPHORA US OWN-BRAND BEAUTY HAUL


I thought I'd share with you the Sephora-branded products that my friend Kate sent me over from California for my birthday. I am Sephora-obsessed as their range is so amazing, and i'm so annoyed we don't have one in the UK despite Europe having so many.

Happy Monday! It's the start of a new week, and I have a new giveaway for you. One reader of my blog will win all the beauty products photographed- a Vintage Cosmetics Company Essential Face Brush Set, a Lottie London handbag mirror and nail file, Sephora false eyelashes, a Stila Lip Glaze and a Topshop Limited Edition 5th Anniversary nail polish.

Mad Beauty are known for their quirky beauty product releases, and when I spotted these new cool-looking bath fizzes in actual soda cans, I just had to try them. I have two of the three scents- Lemonade and Cream Soda.

TARGET US STATIONERY HAUL

Target Dollar Spot Stationery

I have been eyeing up the stationery in the Target Dollar Spot section in US Target stores for a long time. Roughly 75p each for gorgeous notebooks, labels, tags and pen sets! Why don't we have anything this good quality for this price in the UK? Probably just as well we don't actually, as I would have a house full by now.

Phillip Kingsley Elasticizer

MY BUCKET LIST


As i'm sure you know, I am working with Jeep UK at the moment on promoting their #RenegadesWanted campaign, for the new Jeep Renegade car, on my blog and social media. They did some research into the top experiences most found on a modern person's bucket list. A bucket list is a list of experiences, ambitions and dreams that they want to achieve in life.

HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN INITIAL LETTERS

Hand-Crafted Initial Letters

I do love the initial letters made with lights, but I am loathed to buy into what is clearly a temporary trend, as they can be quite expensive. I may cave eventually though. However, in the meantime, I decided to make my own bright and eye-catching light-free initial letters. One for my bedroom, and one for above my desk.

BEAUTY REVIEW: LOTTIE LONDON MAKEUP BRUSHES

Lottie London Makeup Brushes Review

I had been keen to try the Lottie London makeup brushes since the brand launched; but I never got round to it until last month. They look so pretty with their brightly coloured handles and matching synthetic fibres.

ZIP-WIRING, ARCHERY AND OTHER SHENANIGANS


If you follow me on social media, or you read my blog post here last week, you'll know that I have been up to all sorts of adventurous activities as part of Jeep UK's campaign for their new Jeep Renegade car. Just like their new 'renegade' car, Jeep challenged me to be renegade too, and have some experiences that were individual, pushed boundaries and might just tick of some things on my very own bucket list!

HOW I RELAX AT HOME ON WEEKNIGHTS


As you probably know, I work from home as a full-time blogger and freelance journalist. This means that I need to create a very clear division between my working time and my own time; especially at night. Otherwise, I would never switch off- both literally and mentally. I wanted to take you through how I wind down at night after work and the things I enjoy doing in these free hours.

SUMMER BASICS FASHION EDIT

I do love a bright Summer print; but I think sometimes we get carried away with the current trends and forget about stocking up on essential, quality basics. I don't know where i'd be without my plain vest tops and simple light cardigans. I've put together an edit of some must-have Summer fashion basics that everyone needs in their wardrobe.

BEAUTY REVIEW: THE BODY SHOP CAMOMILE SUMPTUOUS CLEANSING BUTTER

The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

This balm cleanser from The Body Shop (www.thebodyshop.com) is simply delightful. The Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter comes in a flat metal tin (rather reminiscent of shoe polish), and is hard and white inside. The butter melts into a gorgeous oily balm when it meets the heat of your skin and a damp face.
