Christmas Gift Guide 2018: For Beauty Lovers

It’s time! December is upon us and I’m finally posting my first Christmas Gift Guide of the year. Of course, I’m starting with beauty. Usually my Christmas wish list is ever growing with the latest releases, sparkliest palettes and luxury treats. Although I’m personally on a huge make-up ban where I’m really trying to use up everything I already have, that doesn’t mean I can’t treat my nearest and dearest and maybe sneak a few items into my collection! Christmas beauty releases are always my favourite. There’s always the prettiest of packaging and sparkliest of products. What’s not to love?…

The Biscuiteers Christmas Collection & Advent 24 Luxe Biscuit Tin

Christmas time means cracking out all the delicious treats and enjoying countless foodie delights. I’m super excited about today’s post as it’s a dream collaboration for me. The people over at Biscuiteers recently got in touch with me to let me know about their Christmas Collection and see if I wanted to sample one of their biscuit tins. Of course I said yes! I’m sure like myself, you’ll have seen the heavenly treats that the Biscuiteers have created on social media and their Christmas Collections are pretty incredible.

With all the chilly weather we are having it’s more important than ever that we take care of our skin. It’s also the perfect excuse for having a cosy pamper night in with a few face masks.

Miu Miu MU52SS Sunglasses from SmartBuyGlasses

Hi, I’m Rachel and I’m a serial Sunglasses Hoarder. I have a thing with sunglasses and throughout the years, I’ve kind of grown quite the collection of shades. I’m that girl who will take 7 pairs of sunglasses for a 5 day trip. You gotta have options, am i right? For a very long time, I’ve dreamt of owning a pair of Miu Miu Sunglasses so when Smart Buy Glasses sent over a pair of the Miu Miu MU52SS shades, I was over the moon. I thought I’d do a post all about these dreamy sunglasses, also because I know…

The Champagne Afternoon Tea at The Ivy, York

Ever since The Ivy opened their doors in York about a year ago, I’ve been desperate to visit. I was kindly invited to visit a couple of weeks ago to try their Limited Edition Poppy Afternoon Tea with my Mum and it was well worth the visit. Throughout November, there was an incredible installation outside of the restaurant with over 2,000 poppies to commemorate 100 years since the end of the first world war. The Limited Edition Poppy Afternoon Tea was been served alongside the installation to support The Royal British Legion’s North East and Yorkshire branch.  You’ve probably heard…

Swimwear Saviours for Winter Sun at Simply Beach

It may be November but I’m talking about Swimwear! Even if it is pretty Baltic outside, I’ve got you covered for swimwear if you’re heading on a Winter Sun break or just looking for something new for a trip to the Spa! I’ve always hated shopping for swimwear. There has been many times that you would have found me in a department store’s fitting room in tears that nothing would fit. I’m quite short, average build with big boobs. The high street is quite terrible when it comes to finding something that doesn’t make me look like either a Glamour…
