June Favourites 

Hi, hope you all had a lovely June. First of all I’d like to apologise for the lack of posting new material. These last few months have seen lots of changes in every aspect of my life. At the end of May, me and my former partner of 6 years and father of our 11 month old daughter decided to call it quits. So I’m back like living with my parents with a baby.

First night back at home I remember feeling upset and down about the thought of moving back home and been a single parent. I suppose it’s the stigma attached to the single parent status and being 25 theirs that added pressure that you should have a career, be settled down and moving out and here I was doing it all opposite. But then came on the news about the terrorist attack in Manchester, where 22 innocent people lost their lives many of them young children. I spent most of the night crying for those people and their families. Being a new mum one of my biggest fears is anything happening to my child or anything happening to me what prevents me from taking care of my child. As I kissed my child goodnight that night I realised I was blessed and we all are blessed for every moment we get to share and spend with our loved ones. It completely put things Into perspective for me no matter what happens in your life as long as the people who matter to you are alive and healthy, does anything else really matter that much?


Fashion Favourites

Pink Oversized Tailored Blazer with Ruched Detailing on Arms – Primark

The “IT” colour of the season is Millennial Pink. A few year ago if people would have said that I would even buy pink items yet alone love wearing them, and feature them in a favourites, I would have said shuuuutttupp (in my best Essex accent). This blazer instantly brightens up any outfit and makes it look put together with the blazers tailoring and detailing on the sleeves. You can wear this jacket with jeans, dresses, wear it at the office, and on a night out. It’s also lightweight for this seasons weather.

Pink Circle Buckle Shoulder Bag – Primark

Shock horror! Another item in the “IT” season of the colour. This bag definitely looks more expensive than its £7 price tag, with the bird detailing on the buckle. It’s also a great size for carrying my handbag essentials.

Gingham Black & White Checked Crop Top – Boohoo

This top has become my go to when in doubt on what to wear. It looks great on, fits like a glove, comfortable to wear, and is made from good quality material. I’ve been wearing this top with everything from jeans, shorts and skirts. I’ve also dressed it down in the day with a pair of flared hem jeans, and dressed it up at night with a pair of suede black lace up shorts.


Beauty Favourites 

Sleek lipstick in VIP night spot shade red 

I’ve been wearing this red lipstick for the last month. A bright red lipstick instantly brightens up any look and can take you from day to-night. I love this colour on me as before I bought this lipstick I would never have worn a red lipstick but I feel this colour suits me. It’s a long-lasting bright matte lip colour that’s not too drying. I will definitely be purchasing more sleek lipsticks in a variety of different colours.

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Very Black

This mascara is a firm favourite of mine I try others but always try this one again and fall back in love. The formula of the mascara is dark and covers all my lashes it makes them look longer without clumps and doesn’t dry and flake throughout the day. The tiny brush also coats all the lashes and separates them. This mascara also doesn’t irritate my eyes like some other mascaras can do.

Nip & Fab  Dragons Blood Serum 

This serum makes my skin feel so moisturised and dehydrated. I definitely feels that it plumps up my skin, calms any redness and stops it from looking dull and dry.  I use this serum in an evening after cleansing and before I use my moisturiser.

Lifestyle Favourites

Feast Of Fools – The Morganville Vampires book 4 – Rachel Caine 

I love all things supernatural so after reading and watching vampire diaries, twilight and Harry Potter I needed something else, that’s when I discovered the Morganville book series.  The morganville book series revolve around a group of friends trying to stay alive in a town where no ones what their seem especially after dark. I’d definitely give this a read if you liked the vampire diary’s.

Pukka Night-time Tea 

This tea is the perfect drink to have before bed as it’s caffeine free, contains lavender and chamomile both known for their calming effects on the body. I dunno how to describe the taste of this tea but when I drink it, I just feel calm and de-stressed and all cozy and ready for bed.
