#lifegoals - september ♥

Dress: Zara (Similar) Heels: Topshop (Similar)
I am always trying to improve my blog and my life - I think we all are, right? It is no secret that I am awful, awful, awful at keeping organised and on top of things, whether this is life or creating content for Fairytale Kiss. Now that I have started Youtube, I have another area of my life that I want to grow and succeed in, I am really excited to start Youtube but I don't want to let my personal goals slip either. I was having a read through my old posts and I noticed that I haven't looked at my New Year resolutions in a while. We are a day away from September and I thought it would be a nice idea to set a few goals for myself, for each month. I have started with September and I will reflect on them every month. Let's hope I can keep on track!

youtube - asos & missguided satin haul ♥

Today I have posted my latest video. I am quite proud of the editing and I was really eager to film my first haul. For today's haul I wanted to focus on satin dresses. I am loving this trend right now so I was very happy when my parcels arrived from Missguided and ASOS. The first dress I try on is from NaaNaa clothing, it is a gorgeous, deep navy shade. You can actually find the full list of outfits in my video bio. I will also be starting a haul series that focuses on different trends, I think my next haul video will include a few PVC outfits. Let me know what you think of this video and don't forget to subscribe for instant updates from my Youtube channel ♥

the gentleman's drive charity ♥

You can donate to my dad's charity page here: Ralph Leech
I am incredibly proud of my dad. I'm very lucky that my mum and dad have always supported me and this week, my dad really needs my support. After beating cancer, he is healthier than ever and he has actually joined a organisation called The Gentleman's Drive Charity. Thousands of bike owners will drive around the world to raise money to fight prostate cancer and to beat mental health. I am incredibly proud that my dad is taking part and I wanted to write this blog post to share his donation page, you can donate here. Whether it is £1 or £100, it would really make a difference to donate and help fight this battle against cancer and mental health.

brand spotlight - chloé ♥

I have always said that I will feature brands that I love on Fairytale Kiss. I want my blog to be positive and honest and I have kept true to this for years. With my brand spotlight series, I love talking about brands I really love and I always buy from but today I actually wanted to write about a brand that I haven't bought from before. This post is a mixture of a brand spotlight and also a first impression post. I have never bought anything from Chloé but I visited the store a few weeks ago and I thought this really would make an interesting post. If you take a look through Fairytale Kiss, you will know that I am obsessed with YSL, Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Versace.

#tiptalk - how to smile more ♥

After attending a beautiful wedding at the weekend, I was surrounded by my friends and family. I think I spent 99% of my time laughing and smiling (or eating). My phone was hidden in my clutch bag and I enjoyed being around everyone without thinking of social media or any unneeded drama. Currently I am the happiest I have ever been but rewind back to 2014 and this certainly wasn't the case. I thought I would write this post to talk about how I stay positive and how I always try to see the bigger picture. It certainly isn't easy and I am definitely not an expert but after surviving heart surgery and dealing with my dad having cancer, I thought I would share my tips about how I still keep smiling.

youtube - vlog #02 alicante ♥

Hi guys, I hope you have all had a lovely Wednesday. I am really excited to share with you my latest Youtube video. This is actually my second vlog but it is my first travel vlog to Alicante. Ollie and I travelled to Alicante a few months ago and I thought it would make a lovely video, we travelled to Elche and took some gorgeous photos of the buildings and we also did some much needed shopping. We also travelled to Valencia afterwards but I am actually saving this for my next travel video. I really hope you enjoy watching today's video, let me know if you want me to film something in particular. I will be posting my next video next Wednesday

current skin favourites - august ♥

For today's post I wanted to write a short and sweet review about my current favourite beauty products. When it came to picking my favourite skin care products, I wanted to include products that have given me fast results. If you haven't caught up on the beauty side of Fairytale Kiss, then you can find my past reviews on the Skinchemist range here. I have been very lucky to try a few products from the Skinchemists range and I was really excited when the skinChemists Rose Quartz Hydrating & Illuminating Day Moisturiser* arrived at my door. I wasn't expecting this type of moisturiser so I was eager to start testing it. Like I've said previously, I am not a big fan of rose scents but the Rose Oil that I had previously used was not overbearing. When I removed the bottle from the packaging, I was relieved that the scent was not too harsh either.

#tiptalk - treating yourself ♥

Lace Vest and Shorts: Boohoo
After spending my weekend as a maid of honour, it was an incredible experience getting ready with the bride. It gave me inspiration to write today's blog post, I wanted to talk about how you should really treat and pamper yourself. We started the morning nice and early with a glass of prosecco and then the pamper session began. From face masks to fake tan, it made me realise how relaxing beauty products can be and I don't think I spend enough time switching off my phone and enjoying treatments. I think once in awhile, you should allow yourself to be totally selfish. Treat yourself to those silk pjs or book yourself that massage - not only will you benefit your wardrobe or skin but I think it can help you mentally.

food time - pizza express ♥

When it comes to writing my Food Time series, I thought it would be nice to talk about Pizza Express. I have been eating at Pizza Express for years (who hasn't!) so I was particularly eager to write this review after trying the new summer menu. I have been three times over the past few weeks and I have been ordering the new Pollo Milanese constantly. I visited the Pizza Express on Kings Road on Monday and honestly, I felt so relaxed after my visit. I had my own private table and I was able to catch up on my blog emails and sit in sunshine. I don't like to visit restaurants just for the food, I love the overall experience of eating out and if you can't cook, like myself, visiting a restaurant is always a slice of heaven and relief.

youtube - vlog #01 ♥

Hi guys I hope you are all having a lovely week. I have just posted a brand new video on my Youtube channel. You can find my channel link here. For today's video I wanted to film a vlog, I thought it would be nice to move away from my dressing table and show you what I get up to on a weekend. Ollie was away on a work trip so I had a very chilled and relaxed few days which included editing, dog walking and eating! We also went house hunting and went to the most beautiful pub, again...there is quite a lot of food in this video. I hope you liked my first vlog and if you would like me to film anything in particular, let me know. You can find the full video below ♥

rush hair salon - chiswick ♥

Yesterday morning I was kindly invited to the Rush Hair salon in Chiswick*, the store is a simple tube journey from Victoria station. As soon as I arrived I felt instantly welcomed by the team, I was treated to fresh apple juice (my favourite) and a selection of chocolate and biscuits. I was seated and my personal consultation began. I actually brought my camera with me so I was able to film the entire appointment! I will be editing that this week and posting the video on my Youtube channel soon. Now when it came to the consultation I was quite worried about my hair losing thickness and body, I still wanted to keep my length but my ends were slightly damaged - okay...they were really, really damaged.

the range ♥

My best friend is a huge fan of B.Makeup*, I remember she was patiently waiting for Superdrug to bring the revamped products back in store and voila, I was kindly sent a delicious selection from the newly designed range so I can now tell her all the juicy details! When it comes to Superdrug, I have been a loyal supporter since I first started buying make-up at the age of 12-13, to have them send over B. is a big pinch me moment so I am really excited to write this review! I think one of the reasons why B. is such a loved brand is because it is designed with vegans in mind while also being suitable for all skin types. My make-up is always based around warm, neutral tones and the selection of shades that I have been testing have really matched my taste and style.

august shopping picks ♥

Last night Ollie and I went to Tesco's. It was absolutely freezing so I grabbed one of my faux fur coats and trotted around the aisles. Considering it is almost the middle of August, the weather is slightly confusing my wardrobe. We went to see Dunkirk on Sunday and it was incredible, before we made our way to the cinema in Notting Hill, we popped into a small vintage shop. At the back I spotted a giant rack of fur coats, some real, some fake. Although I love the look of real fur, I personally don't feel comfortable wearing it. As I was trying on the faux fur coats on Sunday, it made me want to create a big shopping list.

youtube - the titanic quiz ♥

When I first decided to film Youtube videos, I knew I would have to grab my best friend Jenny and film a Titanic quiz. We have been watching this film for years and I even grabbed two white boards to prepare for this video. It took us quite a while to film because we couldn't stop laughing! This is just something silly and lighthearted to watch, I thought it would make a nice change to include some film and TV on my Youtube channel and this film is a pretty amazing place to start because we have watched this film 1405405 times. I hope you guys enjoy watching and let me know if you want us to film something else. You can see my other videos here

#tiptalk - managing my blog ♥

Dress: Zara Heels: Zara (Similar) Bag: Zara
For today's #TipTalk post, I wanted to talk about my blog routine. I've had quite a few messages lately asking how I manage my blog and social media channels so I thought it would make an interesting post. I have been writing Fairytale Kiss for about 6 years now but I would say that over the past year and a half I have really pushed myself and given my blog 100%. One day I would love to be able to blog and film Youtube videos full time and I am very lucky that my current job gives me an incredible amount of freedom and time to make Fairytale Kiss a priority. I am not an expert in blogging, I have a combined following of around 9,500 followers across my blog and social media so I am not hitting the million mark just yet but I am amazed that people follow my blog and I can't believe Fairytale Kiss has been viewed over 1,148,000 times.

youtube - what's in my travel bag ♥

Happy Friday girls! I hope you have all had a lovely week. I wanted to share my second Youtube video with you. I am talking about what I carry in my travel bag. After my first Youtube video, I wanted to dive in with my holiday bag, it was still packed with a few items from Las Vegas so you can get a real insight into how much stuff I take with me! From sunglasses to beauty products, I cover quite a bit. I really hope you like this video, you can click 'read more' to see the video below. Let me know if you would like me to film a particular topic ♥

brand spotlight - jo malone ♥

It has been a while since I made a brand spotlight post. I have covered quite a few brands and I love talking about my favourite beauty and fashion shops, from the brand style to the actual products. Today I wanted to talk about one of my favourite brands, Jo Malone. I popped into the Sloane Square store yesterday and I had a peek at the new launches and I also admired the iconic and classic products. The store interior has always made a lasting impression on me, it definitely matches the product packaging and the luxurious and elegant designs look flawless as soon as you step inside.

romwe yellow bikini ♥

Yellow Bikini: Romwe*
I am looking out of my window right now. It feels more like a chilly, October afternoon than the second day of August. I have been browsing through my holiday photos from Alicante and Valencia and I found a few bikini photos that we took before we caught our flight home. I am really craving the sun right now but a few photos will have to do while our British weather turns around. I was lucky enough to get contacted by Romwe*, a rather hip and trendy clothing site. I was pretty overwhelmed by how many clothes they had on the website but luckily everything is easily organised with a touch of a button.

redken extreme range ♥

I am way overdue to get a hair trim, I am desperately trying to keep my hair length but sadly the ends are becoming more and more damaged - because of this, my hair is pretty dry and weak. I've tried quite a few hair products to keep my hair strong and less brittle but to be honest, its been pretty hit and miss most of the time. I was kindly sent a care package from Redken* and yes, I did have an excited squeal when the products arrived, most salons stock Redken and they have always been known for their high quality results. With all of the products I test and review on Fairytale Kiss, I like to use the products for a few weeks to really see how well they work. I started using the range straight after I came back from Alicante, the sun had left my hair incredibly dry and flat so I was excited to see what the Extreme range would do.
