Biscuiteers, Sleek highlighting palette, embroidered jackets and Instagram are just a few of the things I’ve been loving lately. ‘Favourites’ are posts I love reading and watching because these are the products, shows, food, places to eat, music and books that people genuinely love enough to remember all year round.
I’ve had a love affair with The Biscuiteers since I popped into an icing workshop last year with some blogging gal pals. Their biscuit tins are amazing presents for birthdays, engagements, new babies, weddings… just about every occasion. I also couldn’t agree more with their strapline ‘why send flowers when you can send biscuiteers‘. The Good Life biscuit tin is a gorgeous collection of seasonal veg biscuits . THEY. ARE. BEAUTIFUL. Delicious too – I’ve basically lived on these all week! Other favourites from the collection:
Best In Show – Puppy biscuit tin
So funny story.. My other half sprung a dinner with his sister on my at the last moment and I looked a wreck. So I popped into the local pharmacy raided the testers (don’t judge me) and then picked up a new mascara and I bloody love it.
I saw the hype over the Space NK Artis brushes and the step-change is base application and though.. nah. can’t be that good. OVAL BRUSHES ARE THAT GOOD. Because I was hesitant to invest in the real deal I thought I would try out a Korean one from Amazon. I picked mine up for around £3 but I’ve noticed that they now sell it in a set of 4 for around £4 which is incredible. The quality was so good I really haven’t felt the need to invest in the pricier option.
I stumbled upon these scents when I was wandering around boots spending my hard earned money on things I definitely didn’t need. But as soon as I smelt this little number my heart skipped a beat and I couldn’t resist. Light, crispy, sweet and incredibly summery.
I’m love every single recipe that I’ve made so far. I am utterly addicted to her cookies (recipe here) and her savoury food is amazing. If you are looking for a book which will help you create delicious, quick and healthy meals I highly recommend this one.
This is something I picked up on one of my many visits to Gatwick over the last few months – my Mary Loumanizer by TheBalm broke so I was in dire need of a replacement. I definitely didn’t need 4 highlighters but the palette was just so beautiful I couldn’t resist it especially as it was only £9.99. The pigment is great but it’s intense so you need to take care not to end up looking like a disco ball!
The beauty industry is going absolutely nuts for Vitamin C Serum at the moment for it’s gorgeous anti-ageing properties. I picked up mine for a fraction of the cost – it’s often on offer and costs around £15 which is a lot cheaper than most facial serums.
I don’t know anyone IRL that uses snapchat that isn’t a pre-teen or a youtuber. I don’t get it, I can’t be bothered – Snapchat is effort. I don’t want to spend my time trying to find out who to follow so I was delighted when they launched the insta-story lark. Want to see me gurning, talking rubbish and showing you what I eat. Follow Along!
It’s one of those trends that comes around every year and I can’t resist any longer. The highstreet is awash with absolutely gorgeous embroidered pieces. Here are my favourites:
