double denim with shein ♥

I am so excited to write this post, I am finally back on the fashion train and I am looking forward to branching Fairytale Kiss into the fashion genre even more. I spent the weekend taking blog photos and eating (a lot), but one of my weekend outfits included this double denim number. I was kindly sent this denim skirt from Shein* - I fell in love with the ripped design and after finding some inspiration from my beloved Kim K, I thought a denim shirt would make the perfect partner in crime.

#tiptalk - feeling guilty ♥

Hi guys, I hope you are all having a lovely start to the week. The weekend whizzed past as usual and I spent the majority of my time eating. A lot. I haven't been feeling that great recently so I've been absent from the gym, I dragged myself to the gym for a swimming session last week and I felt really poorly afterwards. I feel like my diet has gone from bad to worse but I'm starting the week with a positive attitude and mindset towards my diet. I used to really put myself down about my eating habits and when I joined the gym I felt less guilty, now I am absent from the gym again I was starting to feel that familiar feeling of guilt creeping back. I think for today's #tiptalk, I wanted to talk about finding the right balance in things, whether it is diet, blogging, work or friends.

food time - hutong ♥

Hi guys, I hope you are enjoying your week. I am diving right into today's post with a food review on one of my favourite restaurants. I really want to include more lifestyle reviews on Fairytale Kiss, especially food and I think Hutong is a perfect place to start. I wanted to start with my outfit rather than the resturant itself. I find it quite tricky dressing for meals during the daytime but I fell in love with this Reiss jumpsuit and I thought it would make a perfect outfit for a lunch. The dress code for Hutong is smart/casual so wearing shorts or trainers is a no-no. I paired the jumpsuit with my gold Zara sandal heels and my giant fur coat - I looked slightly like one of the mob wives from VH1 but I really liked the outfit because I still felt dressy but not too out of place.

the male gift guide ♥

Hi guys, I hope you are all having a nice week. I thought it would be a really nice change to focus on a male gift guide. I previously made a Christmas male friendly gift guide here but I wanted to get up close and personal with a few products today. I actually used Ollie as a guinea pig for a few of the skin care products and overall, I am really pleased with my gift idea suggestions so I hope you find this post helpful! I wanted to mix a few luxury items in this post because I'm slowly starting to appreciate luxury gifts compared to high street finds. Although I've always been a high street girl, I do think some items just can't be beat by a higher end brand, especially when it comes to wallets, watches, sunglasses or aftershaves. That being said, I have included a few purse friendly options too. Let's get started!

life update #003 ♥

Hi guys, I hope you are all having a lovely week. I have just finished watching Vogue's 73 Questions with Selena Gomez and I felt like doing a blog post version about it for myself. I have mixed up quite a few questions and although I have done a few posts like this in the past, it is always nice to introduce myself to new Fairytale Kiss readers. When I get around to editing my overdue 5-6 Youtube videos, I think it will be really nice to go through these questions in a video. Let me know if you have any questions to ask me, I have settled with 57 questions instead of 73. I would love to tag Ellie from FoxyTravels to answer these questions in a video, you can find her Youtube channel here and you can also find my answers below...♥

#tiptalk - staying organised with printiki ♥

Last November I wrote a #tiptalk blog post about keeping organised, now that March is almost over, I think a little update might be useful. We are only human and although I tell myself that it's okay to forget things - this really annoys me! I wish I could say I am totally organised and I know exactly what I need to do but without my iPhone or notebook, I am pretty lost. I find it really hard sticking to a routine of using a diary and when I see perfectly planned journals and blog planners I start to sink down in my chair. I've decided to do something about it and stop the vicious circle, I think I need to be stricter with my routine and this isn't just for blogging. I was contacted by Printiki* a few weeks ago and if you don't know, they can print hundreds of photos for you - whether you want cute polaroids or a thick album to flick through.

netflix - the kids playlist ♥

Image credit: Tumblr
It is time for another Netflix post! This week I wanted to talk about a kid friendly Netflix playlist - when I say a film/TV list suitable for children, I also mean me. I was going to write a Buffy episode guide but to make things easier for Netflix users, (sadly Netflix removed Buffy from their TV list), I will stick to a kids playlist for this Sunday. I have put together quite a few Netflix playlists, including superhero films, thrillers, musicals, feel good shows and even a tearjerker list. Let me know if you are looking for a particular genre, I love putting this Netflix post together! You can see my previous Netflix posts here. Let's get started!

gosh spring/summer collection ♥

There are certain beauty brands that you grow up with and there are some brands that always stick with you. For me, GOSH is definitely one of them. I pretty much grew up in Superdrug, I would spend ages looking at the make-up displays after school and I vividly remember being amazed by the GOSH eye shadow colours. Fast forward quite a few years and GOSH is still surprising me. Although my beauty knowledge has hopefully improved since my early teens, it is really lovely to watch a beauty brand grow and give you a feeling of nostalgia. I was lucky enough to be invited to their S/S 2017 launch but unfortunately I was stuck in a hospital bed but the lovely Sophie was kind enough to send me the new products to test.

current favourites - march ♥

I'm starting off today's blog post with a list of my favourite beauty/hair/lifestyle products, I've narrowed the list down to four key products that I've been using over the past few weeks. I really love looking back on these posts to see what type of beauty/hair products I have been using and this month, my most used product is the Dorco Eve razor. Until I finally get lazer hair removal, I will forever use razors. They are simple to use and quick and I've been using disposable razors for years. My leg hair grows back really quickly so I am forever having to touch up my legs before a night out or while I am in the shower.

makeup revolution skin kiss range ♥

If you follow me on Instagram then you'll know that I am a big, big fan of Makeup Revolution. From the packaging to the product, they have never really let me down and as the brand has expanded over the years, I think the quality has too. If you have ever had a peek inside my handbag (what a great idea for a blog post!) then you will also know that I love being prepared. I always carry a gigantic mirror around with me but lately I want to lighten up the weight of my bag. I was in for a big surprise. The Makeup Revolution Skin Kiss range* arrived on my doorstep last week. It was totally unexpected and I instantly filmed a first impressions video on my Instagram story. The three highlighters and cream bronzer arrived with a very large mirror attached to the product.

brand spotlight - chanel ♥

Chanel gives me a really big tingly feeling. What is it about luxury brands that make you go 'Oooo!'. Is it the packaging? The shades? I wanted today's brand spotlight post to focus on Chanel and talk about why I really admire the brand and why the beauty appeal has lasted for so many decades. Lily-Rose Depp is currently the face of Chanel and she is certainly rocking the new spring campaign. Even if some people claim she is only the face of Chanel because of Johnny Depp, you can't deny her captivating aura in the Chanel photographs and I really think she keeps the brand fresh. With an iconic brand like Chanel, I personally think they don't need to dish out new and revolutionary products. I love the iconic perfume bottles, that are classic and elegant and I also love the packaging throughout the range.

milly bridal wishlist ♥

Hi guys, I hope you are all having a lovely start to the week. I am super obsessed with dresses at the moment, with my Las Vegas trip right around the corner, I am constantly scrolling the internet for lavish outfits. I stumbled across Milly Bridal a few months ago so I was really excited when they contacted me for a collaboration. I thought it would be a nice idea to create a wish list post of my favourite dresses, including the beautiful lace sweetheart prom dress. Whether you have a wedding lurking around the corner or if you have a prom date set, I definitely think you can find something on Milly Bridal online, there is certainly a style to suit anyone. Let's get started!

life update #002 ♥

Hi guys, I hope you have all had a lovely weekend. I wanted to write another post update today and talk about my latest outfit purchases and what I've been up to. I am currently sipping on hot chocolate right now, I've been slightly overindulgent over the past few weeks so I am back to the gym this evening - my Las Vegas trip is not too far away. I visited Hutong on Saturday and the food was just incredible, I will be writing a separate review about the Hutong menu this week! I also watched John Wick 2 at the cinema on Friday night, although the script is not very strong, I really enjoyed the plot and the fight scenes. Shopping wise, I have been loving the Lavish Alice collection, I have ordered the khaki collar neck tie midi dress last night so hopefully this will suit my nude stilettos and black Zara shoulder bag. Let me know how you spent your weekend, have you been to Hutong before? If you would like more restaurant reviews, let me know!

netflix - the sci-fi playlist ♥

Image credit: Tumblr
It is time for another Netflix post! This week I wanted to talk about the sci-fi genre. This isn't my favourite genre but I have found quite a few gems on Netflix this week. Equilibrium is certainly my top pick from this list, if you haven't seen it, I really recommend you grab your popcorn and duvet! I have put together a large list of Netflix playlists, including superhero films, thrillers, musicals, feel good shows and even a tearjerker list. Let me know if you are looking for a particular genre, I love putting this Netflix post together! You can see my previous Netflix posts here. Let's get started!

problo curlme ♥

Please ignore my hair colour at the moment (I really want it back to brunette so please ignore the roots), I wanted today's post to be about how I style my hair. I am certainly not an expert, I feel more confident with make-up brushes than I do using hair tools so I was really happy when the Pro Blo Group sent me the CurlMe device*. We all know I love a blow dry and unless I visit a salon, I find it pretty much impossible to blow dry my own hair. I find it very tricky to clip, style, pull, twist and dry at the same time. I have been sitting in a hair salon for hours with hundreds of barreled hair brushes or rollers stuck in my hair and I certainly don't want to spend £150 on 20 hair brushes to try and do this at home. I do not have the co-ordination or the patience to blow dry my hair so I'll be honest, I didn't have high hopes for Pro Blow purely because of how clumsy I am.

sebamed collection - super sensitive skin ♥

Last year I reviewed the Sebamed hand and nail balm and today I am back with another Sebamed review. I was kindly sent a selection of Sebamed products, including the Cleansing Bar*, Lip Defence Stick* and the new Limited Edition Grapefruit Shower Gel* - if you are new to reading Fairytale Kiss then you can have a read of my other beauty product reviews here. If you follow me on Twitter, then you would have seen me constantly moaning about my lips for the past few weeks. They were incredibly dry and sore so I reached for the Lip Defence Stick. I've been using this for the past week and as lip balms go, my lips have stopped cracking and I can get back to wearing lipsticks again. The cold weather played a huge part in my lips cracking and becoming dry so I am very thankful Sebamed was able to improve the condition of my top lip. There is no strong scent or taste so it is perfect if you want something plain.
