Picture Perfect Pier

Sunday, 24 September 2017

One of my favourite things about where I live is having the pier within walking distance of my house. You can the pier and lighthouse perfectly from my bedroom window but it's about a 15 minute walk along the promenade. Everything is so photogenic whether it's overcast (like in these photos) or bright and sunny. You've got the arcade and cute 1920's seaside themed cafe conjoined together and there are a few smaller gift shops dotted around. The cafe is so cool and has around 6 of the enormous vintage chandeliers which I think are the originals. It has such a nice vibe with a self playing piano sounding out piano jazz. It's so nice to sit in the bench booths by the window and eat their amazing sundaes. So dreamy. It would be the perfect date setting (if only I wasn't so very very single). 

Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette

Tuesday, 19 September 2017

After months of trying to stop myself from making this purchase, I gave in. I have no will power. It was only £18 though which I think is a right bargain but I didn't really need it. I've used to be someone who didn't buy unnecesarily (cuz I'm mega tight with money) and I would only buy a new palette/makeup item until I'd used up the previous one. Like for example, I won't try a new foundation until I've run out of my current one. I've accumulated quite a few eyeshadow palettes and I hate the thought of having a load that are just sat in my draw collecting dust because I've bought a newer one. I'm telling myself it's good to have options though so I don't have buyers remorse. I mean, can a person have too many eyeshadow palettes?

Things I Wish I'd Been Taught In School

Friday, 15 September 2017

Ahh school. Everyone's favourite place. For me, secondary school was just about bearable and I came away with a good set of GCSEs (not blowing my own trumpet or anything). Now I'm in college, things are a little less personal and you only show up for your hourly lecture and that's it. You choose what you learn. There are some really important things that were never taught at school that I think would have been really helpful. Here are 5 of them:

Easy At-Home Hair Dye Kit | Garnier Olia Hair Colour Review

Friday, 8 September 2017

I wish I was someone who was brave enough to change my hair often. I had a sudden urge about 3 years ago when I decided to dip dye my hair bleach blonde but that's about it. I bought one of those Bleach London Ombre kits and me and my sister pretended to know what we were doing in my room one evening. Even though she did a pretty good job, it definitely wasn't the pinterest ombre I'd been hoping for. I loved it for about a week but then completely despised it and wondered why on earth I ever wanted to do it. 

No Bake Peanut Butter Protein Bites

Saturday, 2 September 2017

I'm well and truly on the "no bake bar" bandwagon. I'm obsessed. It was actually my Mum who found this recipe and was the first to test it but after coming home from work one day to be her guinea pig taste tester (I'm not complaining) I was amazed. I love peanut butter so these are definitely my cup of tea but all of the ingredients combined make them so so yummy. They are so simple with only 4 ingredients and are full of protein.
