Which fake tan is best for your skin type?

If you are mulling over going down the self-tanning route, you might still be concerned about the extent to which you could truly benefit from fake tan. After all, if your skin tone is fair, you might hold off applying fake tan out of a fear that you will end up looking orange or patchy, as The Sun notes. All the same, overly dark skin could tempt you into ruling out using any kind of fake tan at all. However, people of a broad spectrum of skin tones can actually benefit, as this article attests… What if you are pale…

My (late) Summer 2018 Fashion Wishlist

It’s been a while since my last fashion wishlist but I haven’t half done a lot of window shopping recently. It’s pretty late in the game to be looking at Summer items but I’m planning to book a holiday at the end of September. So I’ve obviously been looking at some clothes for my holiday and seeing what catches my eye. With all this lovely weather in the UK that we’ve had, it seems strange to be thinking about Autumn but I am ready for the boots and cosy jumpers! Back to Summery items for my holiday, the wishlist just…

Simple Tips to Improve Your Blog

When I was 15, still at school writing about Mary-Kate & Ashley, I never thought this was the direction my blog would be going. Since then, the whole blogging world is a completely different place. I’ve learnt so much throughout the years from how to use Photoshop and Lightroom to SEO tips & tricks. I’ve teamed up with Click Consult to share some of my top tips on how to take your…

A Luxury Stay and Dining Experience at Hipping Hall

Last month, my boyfriend and I spent a couple of days exploring the Lake District. We stayed at Hipping Hall which is just on the outskirts of Kirkby Longdale and a short drive to the Lakes and the Yorkshire Dales. It’s in a good location for exploring so many different areas, we were mainly focusing on visiting the Lake District and it took around 30 minutes from Ambleside. Hipping Hall is actually quite a small residence with every room whether it’s one of the six rooms in the main house, stables or cottages being different. On arrival, we were greeted…

Six Beauty Products I will ALWAYS Re-purchase

I’d say that a product really has to impress me to re-purchase it again and again, especially if it’s quite pricey or high-end. I thought I’d do a little blog post with my top six products I will forever be keeping in my makeup bag. You can see from the photo’s that some of these products I’ve already purchased multiple times and are very well loved. First up is the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. Although I really rate the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer at only £4.19, I think this Nars one is just a touch better. I’ve re-purchased this concealer…
