A few of my pals - from Kirsty to Roisin (click to see their answers) - have been doing 'The Blogger Tag' recently, so I thought why not? I haven't actually been tagged cause they're the worst (kidding, love you guys), but this tag basically reminds me of ye olde MySpace or Livejournal surveys, so I am a keen bean for re-living my 13 year old self's favourite thing. Anyway, on we go with my input! I'll tag some of you at the bottom of this post to complete it too.. and, you better! I'll be waiting! ;)

So! I've covered some of the exciting parts of winter, what with cosying up in your best jammies; investing in a winter coat & playing about with the new beauty looks, but what about your winter parched skin? I thought I'd give you a little run-down of the skincare products that are rocking my world right now for their amazingly hydrating properties - and their glow-giving abilities!

My Dream Sunday with OnePiece (& a Special Offer!)

19 October 2014

My Dream Sunday with OnePiece

One of my favourite times of the week is that blissful feeling when you're waking up on a Sunday morning knowing you have a day ahead of you filled with whatever you want - and, let's be honest, 9 times out of 10 it's going to involve your onesie and catching up on American Horror Story. So, when I was contacted by OnePiece who've launched their AW14 range and wanted to send me some items, I was sold. It was time to give my Sunday morning lazy routine a well deserved shake-up!

My Top 3: AW14 Beauty Looks

16 October 2014

My Top 3 AW14 Beauty Looks
As I was spouting on about in my earlier post when I told you what I've picked up to wear this AW14, it's officially autumn!! Hip hip hooraaaay.. the time where my dark berry lip doesn't look out of place and I can swipe lots of gold glitter on my lids... yep! I'm officially in beauty heaven, if you hadn't guessed already. I've actually stocked up on lots of new L'Oreal Color Riche beauty bits, so expect a lot of that in these mini tutorials as I fancied giving them a go the day I bought them.. definitely wasn't sponsored though!

So, I've compiled a post filled with my top 3 most wearable AW14 beauty looks, which can fit around every eventuality in life (I hope). Let's crack on..

Hey guys :)

As my flatmate and all-round top pal Gillian works at Made From Scotland, I felt I should probably tell you guys reading my blog about how much I love their beaut homewares, accessories, art & jewellery, instead of just gushing to her all the time about it. All of the items on the website and in-store - in the pop-up store on Rose Street, Edinburgh - are Scottish in origin or theme and are aimed at showcasing the creativity of Scottish produce, without all the cheesy tackiness associated with those tourist shops on the Royal Mile.. (you know the ones.)

Autumn tartan and biker coat New Look
Haha, such a weirdo.
Hey you lovely lot!

I've been taking lots & lots of pictures for upcoming posts this past weekend, so I feel so much more prepared and happy for what's in store on the blog this week. I've been spending the past month settling into my job writing amazing cultural content all day & brainstorming for social media ideas, and now I'm ready to focus on my own wee digital hobby! Look out for my pick of the AW14 beauty looks, new makeup releases and how I'm keeping my skin nourished as the harsh winter weather approaches Edinburgh. First up, here's what I'm keeping myself cosy in now that the cold is firmly here to stay!

15 Little Things That Have Made Me Smile

2 October 2014

Recently, I've realised that I've become probably the happiest I've ever been. It's been a gradual process, what with finishing Uni and gaining my dream 2:1; moving in with one of my pals, Gillian, who has been a welcome breath of fresh air & always makes coming home a fun part of the day; and getting a dream job. I've had a few ups and downs as I've tackled making things work, and I'm still trying to make sure this dream job lasts.. but, on the whole, I'm feeling the very best version of myself these days!

So, here's a little list of those things that have made me smile recently. Why not comment with your own list?
