#tiptalk - things to do in london ♥

You know when you have a light bulb moment? I was scrolling through my blog posts and I realised that I have never really talked about why I love London so much. Living in Bromley makes me pretty lucky because I am 20 minutes away from Victoria so I can always get to London pretty quickly. I thought it would be quite nice to write about my favourite things to do in London, whether I am having a date night with Ollie or having a food session with the girls. I've kept this list pretty budget friendly too but I will do a jazzier and expensive version soon but personally, I do love this list - you don't need to spend a fortune in London to have a great time. Let me know what you think of my picks and what your favourite London activity is!

halloween costumes - dog friendly ♥

Okay this blog post is slightly different to my usual fashion and beauty posts but as soon as the Halloween season approaches, all of the rules go out of the window. For some reason, Halloween just adds a touch of magic to my routine and I was even more excited when I saw that natural dog food suppliers Feedem* have created a list of Halloween costume ideas! Yes, you can actually dress up your pet for Halloween - dreams really do come true. If you are looking to read a fun and light hearted blog post today, grab your hot chocolate and prepare to scroll through quite a few Halloween costume ideas for yes, your dog. Let the Halloween season begin!

the luxe link - floral lace dress ♥

As promised, this is part two of my Luxe Link blog post. This Floral Lace Dress* is from ABS and I fell in love with the unique lace pattern. This is definitely suitable for the summer nights on holiday or you can dress this up as a winter/autumn gown. With part one of this blog post, I explain how the Luxe Link service works and I was lucky enough to review this dress as part of the service, I picked this dress because the detailing and style is classic but still stylish, I don't think this dress will go out of season anytime soon and I certainly think Prue Halliwell will approve. The fur coat is actually from Zara, I wanted to make this outfit more winter friendly, especially now that we are in the colder end of 2017.

september beauty wish list ♥

It feels like I haven't been shopping in forever. Pay day is slowly around the corner but it is taking forever. I have seen so many exciting new launches in the beauty world recently and I thought it would be nice to create a classic wish list. I haven't made a beauty focused shopping list for quite some time so I hope you enjoy looking at my picks. The Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eye palette is already causing quite the stir on my Twitter and Instagram feed, everyone is talking about it. The colours look incredible and I am dying to see what the swatches look like. Hair product wise, Redken have pretty much saved my hair, it was in quite bad shape a few months ago but the Extreme range has put it back on track, now my hair is healthier the Redken Soft range is now at the top of my wish list.

The slight temperature drop can leave my hair feeling dry and brittle, I have read so many amazing reviews about the Soft range for rescuing dry hair types. Make-up wise, of course I had to include the Fenty highlighter in this post, the Trophy Wife shade looks out of this world and the swatches that I have seen online speaks for itself. What do you think of my beauty picks this month? Let me know what new beauty product you have been dying to try? On a side note, my house is being decorated so it is making filming pretty tricky, but you can catch up with my recent Youtube videos here

the luxe link - little black dress ♥

Black Dress: LIKELY Elizabeth Black Velvet Dress*
There is something magical about a little black dress, it never goes out of fashion and whether it is the summer or winter season, I always have one close by. I was incredibly excited when The Luxe Link contacted me about their services, if you haven't heard of Luxe Link, prepare to be bedazzled. If you spend your time glued to Instagram looking at beautiful clothes from designer stores in the Big Apple stores like me, then you will understand how excited I was when an email from The Luxe Link arrived, they specialise is achieving the impossible and they make your shopping dreams come true. If you have found your dream dress in New York, Luxe Link will post it over to you without the usual hefty shipping fee.

the bioderma sensibio range ♥

I spend my time running around London or trying to jog in my gym and as you can imagine, this doesn't have a nice effect on my skin when I am trying to cram in my to-do list as well. I personally believe that our skin reflects our lifestyle and mood, if you are constantly tired or stressed, this reflects on the appearance of your skin and usually my skin is pretty oily but lately it has been very sensitive, dull and messy. Now I know that most people have heard of the Bioderma Micelle Solution H2O - this make-up remover is praised heavily so I was thrilled when the Bioderma Sensibio collection* arrived at my door to try out for myself. My skin was in a slightly different mood when I started testing this range out so I was very curious to see how it would react to new products, especially ones that are designed for sensitive skin types.

spicing up your autumn wardrobe ♥

When it comes to my autumn and winter wardrobe I used to really struggle feeling comfortable wearing layers or big jumpers. If you scroll through Fairytale Kiss then you will know I love wearing fitted outfits and I pretty much copy anything from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Now the weather is slightly colder and the leaves are turning a crispy, golden brown I wanted to write a blog post about how I still wear fitted clothes without catching a cold and freezing to death. Of course there is nothing wrong with wearing jeans and baggy jumpers but I personally love wearing mini dresses and bold boots. If you want to browse different brands and styles, Lyst is a pretty helpful website.

makeup obsession glitter brushes ♥

Hi guys, for today's post I wanted to talk about a particular set of make-up brushes. I was very excited when the Makeup Obsession Trend Glitter Set* arrived at my door and it inspired me to write about my first impressions of the Glitter Set from Makeup Obsession. As first impressions go, I was pretty amazed when I opened this package. The brush designs hit me instantly and I think they are fresh, funky and definitely suitable for someone who loves a dash of glitter. The brushes arrived in a large silver box so I immediately thought this set would make a great gift. - I think a large box adds a nice touch to present wrapping. The set includes four different brushes that are designed for your face and eyes.

youtube - let's visit rush hair salon ♥

Hi guys! I am back with a brand new video, I finally got to take my new camera out with me and I have always wanted to film my experiences with make-up and hair treatments. I travelled to Chiswick to the Rush Hair salon* and I had a cut and finish. I have actually put together a blog review about my experience but I have also published the video too. I hope you enjoy watching, let me know what you think of my hair! I am thinking about getting the chop but I'm not too sure whether I should keep my current length. Have a lovely evening girls and I hope you are enjoying my Youtube videos so far! ♥

rosegal wishlist - autumn coats ♥

Hi guys, I hope you are all having a lovely start to the week. Besides from drinking a few gin and tonics at the weekend, I actually spent a few hours shopping in town yesterday. I have probably said this 100 times but we all know I hate the winter weather but I really love autumn/winter fashion. For today's blog post, I wanted to do a fun and fast wish list from the coat section at RoseGal. They have such an amazing list of options and I thought now would be a great time to start writing this post. My favourite coat has to be number 6 and 7, they are pretty bold but I love the faux fur and the brown material. What do you think of my Rosegal picks? You can find the full list of autumn coats here and if you are not ready for autumn coats yet, they also have a selection of gorgeous long chiffon dresses ♥

#tiptalk - the perfect night's sleep ♥

Mattress: Leesa*
I don't know about you but I really used to struggle to get enough sleep. I would often find myself yawning at my desk and I needed coffee to save me. Whether you are scrolling through your Twitter timeline or your Facebook news feed, I think you will find this is a really common problem. I was really tired of feeling tired during the day so I decided to put my detective hat on and find out exactly what makes you tired and how you can improve your sleeping routine. Sleep is so important and not only does it make you feel more alert during the day but it can really benefit your health, it allows your body to heal and repair itself and I didn't actually know that sleeping can reduce the risk of more serious health conditions including heart disease and high blood pressure.
