Little Mix Beauty Collection!

The day has finally arrived...my favourite girl band have released their own beauty collection!

Little Mix have been an inspiration to me ever since they started and if you know me, you know how much I love them! I love their personalities, music, fashion, girl power and their makeup looks!



On September 13th Little Mix launched their beauty collection LMX on Boots and of course, I ordered some products straight away. The collection is now available in store as well as online, but this is a limited edition collection. I decided to pick up a few products to try as Boots had an amazing deal of 3 for 2. The whole collection is incredible, I really love the colour scheme and look of everything. It all looks high quality and the packaging is something that I think everyone will be drawn to. The range is full of a variety of things and the idea behind it is all about gifting. So, the majority comes as a set which I really like as you usually get more for your money. From palettes, lip kits, glitter sets, brushes and more!

To make everything a thousand times better, the range is Cruelty Free and Vegan! yesssssss

I turned 21!

So Thursday was a big day for me...I turned 21! I thought it would be the perfect time to write a new lifestyle post about 21 things that I have learnt in 21 years. I did this post last year for my 20th and it went down really well so I thought I would start a bit of a tradition and keep this going. I was at work for most of my birthday which wasn't a bad day believe it or not! My work friends decorated my desk and gave me some really lovely gifts. I really do work with the most amazing people and it makes such a big difference to the work! I spent the evening having a takeaway and watching Mamma Mia with the family...what a dream! I wanted the night to be quite chilled as it was the big party on Friday. I had a movie themed fancy dress party and got to dress up as one of my favourite characters...Wonder Woman! Everyone who came made a big effort and the room looked so amazing. From Jack Sparrow, to Mike and Sully, to The Greatest Showman...the room was filled with lots of my favourite film characters and it was an amazing night! 

After that rundown of my birthday, lets move onto the main part of the post! Here are 21 things that I have learnt in 21 years!

All photos in this post were taken by the incredible Josey Grace Photography! Josey has also just got her website back up and running with her first blog post so please go and check it out!




1. Why reaching out is important 

It's sometimes so easy to get caught up in social media and thinking you have caught up on someone's life just by looking at their Instagram or Facebook page. Liking their pictures and scrolling through their page isn't the same thing as giving them a call or going to see them and seeing how they are. I think it's something that some people often forget and need to remember how important things like this are. I always make sure I check up on people to see how they are, you never know when someone needs it!

I'm Back...and feeling more motivated than ever!

After not posting anything since April, finally figuring out what I want with my blog...I'm so happy to say that I'm back!

Firstly, I wanted to start off by saying thank you so so much to those people that have still continued to come onto my blog every day even though I haven't been posting anything for quite a few months! It blows my mind how many views I have still had, even though I haven't been active, so thank you! It has been almost 5 months since I last posted anything on here, which is a very long time, so I do have some explaining to do...





To make it super simple, I just needed a bit of a break from the blog. It got to a point where I was extremely busy, couldn't find anyone to help with photos and that I was just rushing posts which is not what I ever wanted. If I didn't have the time to create posts that loved and was posting things just for the sake of it, then I knew I wasn't going to enjoy it anymore. So, I decided to take some time off the blog to figure out what I wanted to do with it and work out a balance that could work for me.

Having a full time job and a social life and all of the other bits you have to do as well as running a blog...is quite difficult! But now I feel like I have worked something out that will work well for me and give me the right balance with everything else. I have figured out a plan that allows me to post regularly and have the time to create posts that I am proud of. It maybe doesn't take 5 months to figure this out...but having a bit of breathing space has given me more motivation than ever!
