The Lifechanging Magic of Tidying

If you watch Essiebutton's videos, you will have probably heard of 'The Lifechanging Magic Of Tidying', a book written by a professional organiser (yes, that's a thing) from Japan. Since I've been desperately trying to declutter and become more organised, I obviously picked this up straight away.

How to create an inspiration board

I think that an inspiration board is something everyone should have. They're aestetically pleasing, easy to change and just provide that extra push sometimes. Mine hangs above my desk so when I look up from my work, it's the first thing I see. Obviously you can put whatever you want on your inspiration board and it will be different for everyone, but here's what I put on mine.

The Breakfast Club Brighton

Since the Breakfast Club opened in Brighton, it's all I've been hearing about. Being a huge fan of breakfast foods myself, I decided to take my sister there while she was visiting from Germany. So last Thursday, we headed down to the lanes to meet Lauren for brunch.

The Backless Playsuit

I love playsuits- they're comfortable but they look dressed up and most importantly, they don't fly up in the Brighton wind like dresses do. I recently got this new one from asos and I just love that it's backless! The top half is very 90s with the halterneck and the open back and everyone knows that I'm a fan of backless clothing!

Wearing Ede & Ravenscroft

So last Friday morning I did a thing... I graduated. No biggie! I got up at 6am and slathered ridiculous amounts of makeup on my face to make myself look acceptable for photos and then walked down to the Brighton Dome for my five seconds of fame. 

Blogging Equipment Wishlist

No matter how many blogging related things I have, I always want more. Especially now that I'm blogging more seriously I think that I need to upgrade my equipment a little and invest in some pieces that will help me improve my blog!

Project Life Starter Kit

As you probably know, I love scrapbooking. It just makes me really happy to have all my memories in one place and I quite regularly sit and flick through the pages of my scrapbooks. While I make proper creative scrapbooks for things like holidays, I also like to keep a Project Life book of just my everyday life where I document little things like concerts, small trips, etc. I find most posts on Project Life quite overwhelming because there's a lot of people out there who take it very seriously and do it really creatively with embellishments and lots of journaling, but I personally like it because of the simplicity of it. When I first started out I didn't really know what to get, so I thought I'd do a little post on things that I would recommend you get if you're starting out with Project Life.

My planning essentials

It's another planner post! I'm just absolutely in love with my filofax and the whole planner community (yes, that's a thing), because I have become so much more organised and motivated since having a planner. A lot of people will probably look at my planner and say 'Why on earth do you need to decorate it so much can't you just write things down' but I find that decorating it and making it look pretty really makes me want to use it more. So today I thought I'd share my planning essentials with you!

Body Confidence- Accepting things you can't change

I think body confidence is something we all struggle with- whether you're a size 6 or a size 16, we all have things that we'd like to change about our bodies. Sometimes this can be a positive thing, because it can encourage you to lead a healthier lifestyle, but it can also have a negative impact on your confidence and feelings of self worth, especially when there are things you can't change.

IKEA Haul // Video

When I was in Germany for her graduation, my sister and I went on a cheeky little IKEA trip because she wanted to get some things for her new flat and I'm always up for buying homeware! I also introduced her to meatballs, because she had never had them in her life!
This video also contains some interesting language issues, as well as a debate about the difference between a cushion and a pillow- I hope you enjoy!

Maybelline Lash Sensational Review and waterproof test

After using up the last of my They're Real samples which I've been using for the past year, I finally bit the bullet and bought a new mascara. Since my beloved L'Oreal Telescopic Waterproof has been discontinued, I turned to Maybelline. The mascara that caught my eye was the Lash Sensational, as I remembered hearing good things about it (something about it being a dupe for the Benefit Roller Lash I think?). Now I'm not a fan of the Roller Lash because it doesn't hold a curl on me at all, but I thought I would give the waterproof version of the Maybelline a go- and while I was at it, I tested how waterproof it really is!

My favourite summer nail polish

It's no secret that I'm not usually one for colour. The only exception to that rule is normally my nail polish- I do love a nice bright colour every now and then! Blue is my favourite colour and I think bright blue nail polish looks so pretty, but also kind of edgy (I'm not sure why, maybe because I saw it on Claire Marshall once).

Mini Paperchase Haul

The other day I popped into Paperchase to pick up some things for my planner, so I thought I'd do a little haul! I am still very much in love with my Filofax and I wanted to get some more sticky notes, because I use them a lot for preplanning and to do lists.
