I have just completed my degree in Marketing at the University of Chester, and will be graduating with a first in November. I haven’t got a clue why we have to wait until November, I’m not looking forward to graduating in the rain! I thought I would share with you what I’d have told myself as a first year, having been through three years of it.
Magnitone have made a lot of claims about their Magnitone Lucid cleansing and exfoliating brush* and I was asked to try it out and report back what I thought. I know this has had some amazing reviews from fellow bloggers but I thought I’d give you all my opinions on it. Their main claim is that after 7 days of using this you’ll be left with softer, brighter and smoother skin – I was up for the challenge.
I’m not a huge skincare lover as I am incredibly lazy. I’ve had loads of body scrubs in the past that I’ve ended up binning or giving away because I just don’t use them.
The lovely Laura from Laura Lollipop posted a blog post with an idea that first appeared on Facebook. This idea was to post a photo related to your favourite memory, accompanied by the following caption;
‘’To help lead the fight against dementia, to end the distress it causes, take action and raise awareness and money for Alzheimer’s Society. The idea is to post a picture related to one of your favourite memories and make a donation by texting ‘ASFM90′ followed by the amount to 70070. So for example: ASFM90 £2’’
Laura decided this shouldn’t just be restricted to Facebook and instead shared a couple of her favourite memories in an attempt to raise awareness for the Alzheimers Society. The internet is such a powerful tool and for once, it can be used to celebrate the work this charity too and ensure they can carry on doing what they do. Dementia is a horrible disease and nobody should have to go through it, let alone without the help of charities like the Alzheimers Society.
In May, my mum married my step-dad who is one of my favourite people. It had been a long time coming and was a gorgeous day. This isn’t a memory from my child hood or anything, but will forever be a happy memory. I love this picture of my mum, step-dad, brother, sister, my boyfriend and I. Continue reading
I can’t remember the last time I stood in my garden for an outfit post, but here we go! I’m obsessed with patterned trousers and cami tops, throw them together and this is created. I decided to go with my coral cami from New Look with these spotty trousers from F&F at Tesco. As usual, I have my Jeffery Campbell flats on and finished it off with my new Primark necklace. I’m loving the weather we’ve been getting in England at the mo, hoping it continues so I can get out a pair of shorts, fancy that eh? Continue reading
Today I want to talk about my favourite Summer shoe, Toms. They aren’t the most glamorous looking shoe in the world, but they’re on my feet for the majority of the Summer months. Why? Because they’re super comfy, go with everything and come in a huge number of colours, patterns and textures. Their standard navy pair cost £34.99* and are my favourite. I pair these with jeans, leggings, shorts, trousers… everything really! I made sure I had a pair of Toms with me when I went to Mexico as I knew I’d need a comfy pair of shoes for walking – they were perfect. I know sandals can be really pretty and converse are great, but sometimes (most of the time in my case) you just need something to slip on, thats comfy and in my opinion looks pretty good!
These navy ones came from Cloggs who have an amazing product range and offer even better customer service! If you order before 7pm you get free next day delivery, and I can vouch that the delivery is suuuuper speedy! I’d definitely recommend this website if you are looking for a pair of shoes, they stock Hunter, Converse, Ugg, Vans, Clarks, Ted Baker, Joules… and the list could go on forever! They also stock accessories from Zatchels and Kipling to name a couple.
Are you a Toms lover?

I’m not usually one to post ‘tags’ but I was tagged by Gemma from Sunshine on a Cloudy Day to complete a list of things I want to do this Summer. I’m already on my ‘summer holidays’ as I’ve finished Uni and now just waiting for Graduation in November.
As I complete these, I’ll cross them out – some have already been crossed out since I jotted down the list in my notebook, which I can only take as a positive!
1. Buy myself an Olaf teddy from the Disney Shop
2. Have a BBQ with my best friend Nadia
Get a job (I start in August – so exciting!) Continue reading
I’ve have accumulated a few beauty items over the past few weeks, some purchased in duty free, others in the Cosmetic Company Store Outlet and a couple of bits from Boots.
