I discovered the Diptyque Rosa Mundi candle in Space NK last weekend when out doing a bit of shopping with my best friend. As soon as we picked up the candle to have a closer look, we totally fell in love with the beautiful scent, so when I received an email from Space NK to say I'd received an N.centive voucher I thought I would treat myself to this gorgeous candle.

Review: Collection Work The Colour Eyeshadow Pencil

The other day I was having a bit of a browse around Boots in my lunch break & of course the place to find me was amongst the make up. While there I made a pretty awesome beauty steal discovery: the Collection Work The Colour Eyeshadow Pencil in Hot Chocolate.

5 Lovely Little Things

I've thought about doing a 'lovely little things' post for a while now, to just highlight some of the things which have inspired me during the week so I thought I'd give it a go this week & try something new instead of 'My week in pictures'. Let me know what you think.

Review: Espa Yoga Detox Evening

In Liberty’s recent ‘Rush to Counter’ offer last week, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a bottle of ESPA’s Detoxifying Body Oil and while at the ESPA counter I saw that they were holding a Yoga Detox evening this week. It sounded like something I was really in need of so I quickly put my name down. I just had to pay a booking fee of £25 which was fully redeemable against any purchases I made on the night.

Review: Veggie Burger at Honest Burgers

As a mushroom hating veggie, I have to say I often struggle with burger restaurants as the main vegetarian choice is either a generic bean burger or a Portobello Mushroom burger, both of which are very uninspiring and boring, so the choice for me is very limited indeed. However, not that long ago at the 'Eat Yourself Young' workshop I met Ji from Pacman Chomps and we started to talk about one of his favourite subjects...good burger joints in London. When I told him about the lack of burger choice I have experienced, he recommended I give Honest Burgers a go as they do a really amazing veggie burger. So in the name of research I headed to the Soho branch with a friend, to give it a go and I am in total agreement with Ji!

Bargain nail polishes

I recently heard on the blogging grapevine that OPI nail varnishes can be found in Pound shops. I couldn't believe it! I love Pound shops for bargain cleaning & even gardening products but I wouldn't have ever imagined that you could pick up nail varnishes which retail for £12 in a Pound shop, so I had to investigate & look what I found!

Spending the afternoon at portobello market

On Friday I thought I would make the most of the last day of my holiday, so I headed up to London to have a bit of a potter around. I had a lovely lunch with a friend (a Friday Scampi and Chips treat) and then headed over to Notting Hill to have a browse, as it's one of my favourite parts of London. I couldn't resist stopping off at Jamie Oliver's Recipease and grabbing an amazingly delicious Raspberry Meringue Kiss by the Meringue Girls, before wandering down to Portobello Market and luckily I just about missed the rain!

Feature: Zara Faux Fur Wrap

A little while ago, when out shopping with one of my good friends, her little girl picked this faux fur wrap out for me in Zara. As soon as I wrapped it around me, I loved it! It's just gorgeously soft and  so cosy. Perfect I thought, for looking glam during the cold Winter months.

Review: Origins Facial

Just before Christmas I had a bit of a splurge at the Origins counter in John Lewis. I'd only popped in to pick up a new GinZing face cream and ended up getting quite a few other things too, which I'm currently trying out and I'll be putting up a review soon. With my Origins spend, I also received a complimentary appointment for a Origins facial and as I was lucky enough to have the week off work this week, I was really excited about heading up to John Lewis for my facial.

Feature: Statement Jewellery

I love all things jewellery related and I even make my own. I definitely have a bit of a weakness for jewellery so I thought I would show you some of my favourite pieces at the moment.

Christmas Gifts & Sale Bargains!!

I know that some people are really not a fan of 'What I got for Christmas' or 'sale bargain posts', but I really love reading them and as I got some lovely gifts and bargains this year I thought I would do a little round up post.

I got this stunning necklace from my Brother from Carousel Blue

As you know one of my 2014 goals is to shop less and save more, but that doesn't mean I can't indulge in a little window shopping without the purchasing, so I thought I would share some of the things which have caught my eye:

Goals for 2014!

For me New Year's Resolutions often don't last longer than a few weeks and most likely by the end of January despite my best intentions my resolutions have fallen away. This year however I'm not going to have resolutions as such but more goals for the year. I know that there are no shortage of New Year's Resolutions/Goals blog posts at the moment and I know there's nothing groundbreaking about my goals, but I really just wanted to write down and share my goals in order to help motivate me, so here you are:
