A pretty little LUSH, Beauty & Lifestyle blog.

LUSH Ethics #HappyAndHandmade Blogger Event

Last night was a huge first for me - I went to my first ever blog event! To make it even better it was with my absolute favourite skincare brand, LUSH.

I was so excited when I received an invite to the event at the LUSH store in Sheffield, and rightly so, I had an amazing time.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams VS Lime Crime Velvetines

I first intended this post to simply be a review of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams I bought on Saturday, but I felt a little bit like they have been done to death in the blogging world.

Instead, take a little peek at this comparison between the NYX soft matte lip creams and my Lime Crime Velvetine in 'Cupid'.

Embracing My Curves In Summer

I've always been so used to eating whatever I want without putting on weight throughout my teen years, but it's finally starting to catch up with me. When I saw I'd put on almost a stone of weight, I simply sat in the bathroom and cried.

However, the compliments started pouring in. My family told me how good I looked for putting on some weight, my boyfriend loved my new curvy bum. Yes everyone is obsessed with having a 'bikini body', but I've just started to realise that doesn't mean being teeny-tiny and it's more about being confident with who you are.

Self-Improvement & Staying Positive Whilst Blogging

After countless late nights hunched over my laptop, crying over coding, I'm finally happy with the direction in which my blog is growing. I love my theme, my photos and my content, but I didn't always feel this way about my blog. It's so easy to be drawn into feeling inadequate in the competitive world of blogging.

I have however come to realise that self-improvement and positivity is the key to maintaining a beautiful blog, so I've decided to share with you all some tips I've learnt along my blog's journey.

Everyday Beauty Staples

Every so often I discover a product that makes me wonder how on earth I've managed to live without it. It quickly becomes a staple in my beauty routine and I find myself not being able to go even a day without using it. These are those products - my everyday beauty staples.
