March highlights

Over the last few months, this blog and my Instagram feed have become almost like an online diary for me. So today, I thought I'd do a summary post of some of my favourite moments from the last few weeks:

 On Friday, I had a lovely day out with Gemma and Jayne. The day started with dim sum at my favourite restaurant followed by an afternoon of make up and new trends at the #Bootsgiveitago event. I was treated to a raspberry Ted Baker manicure and I've since discovered a new favourite lipstick. If you'd like to try some of the new trends for yourself, then make sure you pop by a Boots store on 22nd March where they'll be plenty of new make up and in store advisers on hand.

Cocktail making with Yardley perfume

I love drinking cocktails on a night out, so when Yardley offered me the chance to attend a cocktail making masterclass, I jumped at the chance. We made 3 different drinks, and thanks to Gemma, I've now come to the conclusion that gin cocktails are actually quite nice. My favourite was Mint Julep, which consisted of rum, mint, lemon and apple juice. Yum!

Bumble & Bumble and Smashbox photoshoot

Despite being a beauty blogger, I hate being photographed and I'm about as unphotogenic as they come! That said, I did rather enjoy getting a set of professional photos done with Bumble & bumble and Smashbox. The make up artist choose a flattering peachy Mimosa lipstick and I was really impressed with Bumble & Bumble styling spray. Usually I stay clear of hairsprays, but this one didn't leave my hair too crispy and it managed to hold my curls all night long.

Finally, animal testing is now illegal in the EU. To celebrate, I was sent this beautifully decorated Victoria sponge. The Body Shop have been campaigning for years, so this is a real achievement them. I've been sharing it with my flatmates and we've all enjoyed it as an after dinner dessert. In fact, I may just go and treat myself to another slice, it is Sunday afternoon after all!

What's been the highlight of your week? Have you got anything nice planned for the rest of this month?


  1. You look gorgeous in your Smashbox photos! x

  2. I was about to say the same as Alice - lovely photos and great hair! Which of the Boots lipsticks did you like? Xx
