A Lil’ Life Update

It’s been a while lovely ones, but I’m so pleased to say after a few hectic weeks I’M BACK (woohoo) and I’m feeling more inspired than ever. It feels so good to be back sat writing a post again for what feels like blooming forever, even though it was only a few weeks ago. Still, taking any time off blogging is very rare for me and is something I always look forward to doing each week so to have no new posts for a while was very strange and I can only start with apologising for my absence lately. Since cooking up some choc chip cookies in my previous post, a few things have happened which made me realise that taking a lil’ bit of time off would be the best solution. I’m dying to get back into it now I’m refreshed and get my camera out again to create hopefully better content and put all the effort in I can more than before. Taking some time off to make time for school work with it being the start of my final school year (gulp) and to generally sit back and give myself a bit off me time has reminded me how lucky I am to have such an amazing community of followers (you guys) and how much you have enabled my blog and our community to grow from where I am now to where I was a good year and a half ago when I was a total newbie to blogging. It’s really made me realise how much I missed blogging and how I want to continue to improve and pursue it.

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

What better way to make your cosy autumn evenings catching up on your fave TV show sat by the fire more delicious than munching on a rather delish choc chip cookie?? (or two…) Especially when bake offs on! I thought I would have a go at making them the other afternoon and trust me, this recipe is SO quick, easy and most importantly fun to make which are the perfect (admittedly slightly unhealthy) snack which I’ve been craving ever since. They are soo good! For me, a cookie has to be gooey and a decent size (no messing around here guys & gals) and these definitely tick those boxes! It was my first time having a bash at baking these and I would definitely bake them again! The recipe also requires very little ingredients to make so no fancy expensive ingredients are needed! Let me know if you do, I promise you will not regret it!  View Post

Botanics Skincare Review

Skincare is something that although I don’t speak about as much on my blog compared to makeup, it is the main priority for me when it comes down looking after your skin which I feel is so important. Before makeup, skincare always comes first. Every night when it’s that time to finally take your makeup off after a long day, I always, always make sure I clean my face before going to bed and do my skincare routine. This is the same for mornings, the first step when I get ready is doing my morning skincare routine before I think about applying makeup. This may seem tiresome and time consuming for those mornings when you are in a rush to get ready or on a night when you just want to get to bed and quickly take your makeup off but I can’t stress enough how important looking after your skin is guys & gals. I’m no expert but sticking to a skincare routine and looking after your skin will help you keep beautiful skin for the future & comes with lots more worthwhile benefits. View Post

New Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colours

As a liquid lipstick lover, whenever a brand releases a new range of liquid lippys I’m straight there to get my hands on them so recently when Rimmel released their own range of ‘Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colours’ I couldn’t resist picking up a few and adding them to my basket! Since the liquid lipstick trend, I have been practically converted to matte liquid lipsticks over a lipstick. 99% of the time I’ll be wearing a liquid lipstick so if I can find one that I love that doesn’t dry out my lips, I’m onto a winner! After trying these lippys out, I thought I would share with you my thoughts & opinions and if I would overall recommend them! View Post

Ginger Biscuits Recipe

It’s impossible to eat just one of these rather delish, moreish biscuits from my childhood! Especially ‘dunked’ in a good old British cuppa! A few days ago when I fancied something to do, I had a go at baking these ginger biscuits and thought I would share with you how I made them for this months bake! If you’ve run out of biscuits in the house and fancy something to grab for a snack, these crumbly but soft in the middle biscuits with a kick of ginger that are super quick and easy to make are perfect! These also don’t require much skill or need any fancy ingredients to make so anyone can have a go at baking them!
