#MothersDay | Comedy Cards, Love Layla Style*

I absolutely love Love Layla. Being someone who appreciates a good bitta filthy humour [and a lotta swearing] I've never found a brand that aligns so well with my passions before now - but Love Layla have got it going onnnn huns.

This is [admittedly] a little last minute / the moment has now bloody passed, but I wanted to show you some of my fave picks from their site for Mother's Day 2019 & ultimately just make sure you're familiar with the Love Layla brand itself, so you too can indulge in terribly inappropriate humour & shocking your friends / Mum alongside me πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I had such good intentions in getting this post beasted out & done ahead of today... butttt the new postman ran away with my parcel even though I was in & then it was held hostage in the depot and LIFE and omd. Sorry Love Layla huns. But not sorry for how much these fab designs are gonna make you guys roll on the floor laughing.

Prepare for some serious lolling gang - sprinkled with a few cutesy bits. Whether you're a Mum, are buying for your Mum / another Mum, are a brand new Mum orrrrrr up the duff; there's an option to suit.

AD | Desk To Dancefloor Beauty* #BootsNYXRoutines

I love NYX Professional Makeup. Always have, always will. So when the news dropped that this fab brand was going to be stocked in Boots - and I witnessed the fitness of the stand in my local store - it was one of the best beauty developments of my life. Me? Dramatic? Never. But rly.

NYX boast a huge range of affordable products, which are:

πŸ’ Affordable
πŸ’ Versatile
πŸ’ Long-lasting
πŸ’ Cruelty-free

ticking all of my [proverbial] boxes - they're a brand I've shopped, supported & loved for years. I tried my first ever NYX product back in 2013 [which was a pink lip butter lipgloss] and from then on; I was sold - and it's been the best 6 year relationship of my life. Ever. Shots fired.

NYX are one of those brands I'd class as accessible, affordable & extremely versatile - and celebrating this [and their launch in Boots stores & website] I'm here today in collaboration with Boots to share how I use NYX products in my varying beauty routines... from a simple day-to-day look, to a full on out-out makeup look.

Who's The Most Stylish Member Of The Royal Family? Regal Fashion Trends From Around The World*

Since Kate & Meghan got involved, the British Royal Family have become much more interesting to me - there's something nice about these two young gals going in the Palace & refreshing things with our Liz. The Royal Family are no longer just a bunch of ded unrelatable oldies anymore; but pensioners now mixed with these babes with style, sass & personality. 

We can rely on the British Royal Family to impress us with their immaculate and enviable style choices - the gals not only flaunt some of the hottest high-end fashion labels; they also whack out a bitta high-street, which I love. Meghan & Kate have thrown out several stand-out looks in 2019 ALONE - but I guess on this note, it then gets you thinking; which other countries [aside from our British baes, of course] have similarly stylish royalty? This post will take a look at some of the best-dressed royals from around the world.

#LiverpoolGuide2019 | What's Going On at Liverpool ONE?*

If you're not familiar with the city / northern AF like me, you might not know much about Liverpool ONE & the city of Liverpool itself. And I guess even if you are - there's loads of stuff in this amazing city, fab shops, bangin' bars & events they put on that you might not be aware of...

Today's list - you may be pleased / devoed to learn, is just gonna be a mash-up of things to consider when deciding whether you want to be in a relationship; or continue enjoying single life & one night stands.

What Are Fashion Labels Doing To Make A Change?*

In the midst of current global economical & social issues [wow, that was the most deep / political sentence I think I've ever written], the spotlight has been shone on fashion labels & big name brands. And some of them are stepping up



These select few are making the headlines for other, positive reasons [rather than yet another scandal or outrage off the back of a documentary] - for things like making a difference in terms of the wider community and tackling social issues. For example, Lacoste recently announced that they'd be adopting a temporary logo to help raise awareness for endangered species; offering limited editions of each animal adorned garment in relation to how many of the species there are left in the wild.



Let's have a lil nose at who else in the fashion world is out there trying to fight for good.

Optimise Your Office Space / Blogging Area*

Whether you’re studying, working every hour under the sun like me or right into blogging; considering and optimising the surroundings in the workspace you have around you can be crucial in smashing your to-do list [and not driving yourself slowly insane / getting distracted AF by Cooking Fever like me.] 

Procrastination - a familiar, lifelong friend of mine, costs businesses approximately 76 billion quid each year... which is just cray-cray; isn't it?! As well as the obvious - that procrastination is a HUGE reason why we don't always learn or perform to the best of our abilities as well as we could.

One great way to better focus our minds on the task at hand is, as mentioned, by optimising our space. Regardless of whether you're trying to learn new skills or put old ones to good use, being in the right environment can make the world of difference in what you can achieve; and go a long way in helping you successfully complete your objective. Here's a few of the best ways to optimise ya learning / workspace [one for you aspiring full-time bloggers out there.]

I dunno about you, but that unexpected burst of Spring-esque weather the other week has got me wanting to do ALL THE ONLINE SHOPPING to update my wardrobe & get a bit of a glow up in some new garmz.

10 Of My FAVOURITE Places To Go On Dates*

Oh dating. That old chestnut. On the rare occasion you locate a nice, non-gobsh*te of a fella; dating can be quite sweet. Almost [dare I say it?]... tolerable. I was thinking before about some of my favourite places - those street signs with rude names I've posed next to, the clubs I've stumbled out of - smashed, the pubs I've guzzled out of cider in the Summer... nostalgic AF.

Which then, chronologically, lead me onto thinking about some of the best dates / almost successful romantic interactions with boys I've had in my three decades on this planet. And I decided I'd compile a list - possibly for bae in training's benefit, possibly for future bae's benefit or possibly of no use to anyone at all ever of some of the best places locally I can think of to visit on a date. So here we are. In no particular order.

Matching Your Fragrance To Your Outfit – The Easy Way!*

Why is it that we often treat out perfume as an after-thought? We take ages making sure our make-up’s on fleek, figuring out what clothes to wear... all to then grab the nearest fragrance to spritz on; without thinking about it.

This is especially strange when you consider how important smell  actually is. We’re talking pheromones to be exact; the chemical substances that have a powerful effect on people around you. And how our choice of scent makes others perceive us.  

You may find yourself asking... aren’t all perfumes basically the same? And the answer is a resounding NO hun! Wanna learn more? Keep reading, cos I've got some fab tips to share with you today huns.
