Treat Yo Self

The other day I found out that I had gotten a scholarship for my master's degree, so naturally I had to go out and treat myself to something nice! I've been wanting to go to Boux Avenue for a while so I decided to finally go in and get a bra fitting and treat myself to something nice!

My Happy Planner

Oh planners... I used to laugh at people decorating their planners because it just seemed so silly, but then I got a filofax and recently I changed over to a Happy Planner, because I wanted more space to track different things. The Happy Planner is very similar to the popular Erin Condren Life Planner, but it's a lot cheaper, plus it's disc bound so you can take pages out and add things (I've currently got my eye on the home extension pack for budgeting, cleaning, etc.). If you're wondering why mine has weird marks on it, that is due to a recent leak situation in my flat... but that's a story for another day.

The Capsule Wardrobe Experiment

Minimalism has become quite a big theme in the blogging world and recently I've been trying to reduce the amount of stuff I own. While I've had quite a lot of success using the KonMari method (read about it here), the one area where I always struggle is my wardrobe. I have a lot of clothes but nothing to wear. So today I decided on a whim to see if I could do the whole 'capsule wardrobe' thing.

A look into my Project Life Photo Album

After my recent post about what you need to start a Project Life album (read it here), I thought I'd share some of my favourite pages from my own album. I'm about eight months behind on my album (oops), but I've recently gotten all my new photos printed so I will be catching up soon... So most of these pages are about a year old, but I still love them. I don't really do any journaling in my project life books because I prefer to just fill them with pictures, and I just add journalling cards when I have empty spaces.

Looking sunkissed with Sunkissed

As I write this post I am sitting on my sofa wrapped up in a blanket, looking out at the rain- the British summer certainly leaves a lot to be desired! Thankfully there are ways to look like you've just been on holiday for a week even if you actually haven't seen the sun in god knows how long!

Apartment Details- My Gallery Wall

I'm finally pretty much done with decorating my flat (althoug I don't think I'll ever be completely done), so I thought I could start a new series called Apartment Details, showing you my favourite bits of my flat! I will do a complete flat tour video at some point, but I don't think I'm quite ready for that yet!

Taking care of your jewellery

I love jewellery but there are only two pieces that I wear every day- my Michael Kors watch and this ring my grandma gave to me for my college graduation when I was 17. I wear this ring every time I leave the house, so in the last few years it has gotten quite dirty! I didn't really realise this until my mum pointed it out last time she visited, so I thought I should probably go get it cleaned.

The Brow Repurchase

As a blogger, I love trying out new products so I rarely ever repurchase anything. I actually don't run out of products often either, because I have quite a large collection so I use a lot of different things. So when I not only use up a product but also repurchase it, that definitely means that said item has reached holy grail status!

The Job Interview Primark Haul

This week I have my first interview for a 'proper' job. This meant I had to get together a professional looking outfit, and I was missing some bits so I took a little trip to Primark. I think it's perfectly fine to wear some cheap pieces and as long as you mix them in with some bits that are better quality, no one will know. I already had a grey blazer and a burgundy skirt, so I just had to buy some small bits like a shirt.

My MAC Lipsticks

MAC lipsticks have a cult status in the beauty world, mainly because of the large range of colours and finishes available. I've been slowly growing my MAC lipstick collection over the past year, because they are not the cheapest (but at £15.50 also not the most expensive by far) lipsticks. I do tend to gravitate towards the more unusual colours when it comes to MAC, because that's what I feel makes them worth the money, so I wanted to share my small collection today.

Hello Sailor

I'm currently trying to build a slightly more mature wardrobe and deviate from my usual ripped jeans, tshirt and broken books look, so I've picked up some new things lately that I wanted to feature in a post! I love fashion but am still lacking a boyfriend/photography slave, so the lovely Jordan from Hello Miss Jordan (who does stunning fashion posts by the way, check her out!) took some photos for me!
