I recently saw these new Garnier face masks in Boots and thought I had to give them a go. Well i've tried and tested them and I can safely say they are so good. I love the brand Garnier anyway and have used a variety of their products for a while, so I had no doubt that I would also love these as well. They do a couple more new face masks but I picked these three up as I thought they would be the most appropriate for my skin. 
I have to say my favourite is the Volcano mask which targets pore minimisation - I did resemble looking like an Umpa Lumpa once I had applied it though. 

I will definitely be re purchasing these I think they are nice and they are gentle on my skin too which is something I always look for in face masks. After this weekend of hot weather I think my face will definitely need the Anti-Thirst mask.

Have you tried any of these new Garnier masks? If you have which one is your current favourite?

Hey Everyone, 

It has been an extremely long time, and well let me just say I have certainly missed blogging. However, I think I will do a complete update blog post later on, but today is going to be a fun one. 

I have been busy baking Easter Cupcakes over on my youtube channel, and I must say they taste super delicious, so chocolatey and they have cute mini eggs on top. 
I know, I am sure you are enjoying the sound of them, so I will share the recipe and photographs with you. They were super easy to make, and would have been even easier if I had an electric whisk, but alas I have just moved house, and sadly that is still something on my list of things to purchase. 

The recipe is as follows: 

For the cupcakes:
100g Plain flour
20g Cocoa powder
140g Caster Sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
40g Unsalted Butter
120ml Milk
1 Egg
1/4 tsp Vanilla extract

For the Frosting:
300g Icing Sugar
100g Unsalted butter
40g Cocoa powder

I would love to know if any of you guys decide to bake these or if you have made anything similar for easter.

birthday trip to austria

Hey Everyone, 

So if you couldn't work out from the title of this post I actually spent my birthday in the mountains of Austria. My boyfriend took me out there for a few days, it was my first time visiting, but he goes a lot with his family. I was so amazed by the beauty of this place, it was just incredible. 

We flew into Munich and then got the train to Austria close to where we were staying in Wörgl, and then got a lift up into the mountains of Niederau where we were staying in a cute and very Austrian looking chalet.

I was gutted that I came down with a cold for the entire trip, but that was not going to stop me having the most amazing time, and I even made it up a giant mountain. We spent a lot of time hiking, as there wasn't enough snow to ski (but there was snow, yay). The view from the top of the mountain was absolutely incredible, it was so worth struggling to breathe for. 

I vlogged the whole trip, so you can see what I got up to in more depth, and hear my manly ill voice (it's not attractive, I warned you), but to sum up, I had the most amazing time, I watched the sun rise and climbed snowy mountains, and relaxed in the sauna after the days we spent hiking. It was honestly the most perfect get away for my birthday, there was so much time to chill out and be in a beautiful calm and quiet environment, which is just what I needed, from the stresses of working life and the hustle and bustle of London.

Winter skincare routine

Hey everyone, 

Today I wanted to talk to you about my current skincare routine. Now that the winter is here and lets face it, its bloody cold. So what better time than to discuss how I try and keep my skin looking fairly decent and hydrated through those dreaded winter months (I actually enjoy winter, but my skin definitely doesn't). 

I try to use oil based products, such as the oil infused micellar water from Garnier, as it gives alot more hydration to my skin and stops it feeling so dry. Just bare in mind that if you have oily skin, you shouldn't be put of by oil based products, I too have oily skin, mainly on my t-zone but I swear by this product. 
I also talk about my love of Origins and their drink up intensive mask, oh my gosh it's so good, I can't tell you how amazing my skin feels after using this, when I wake up in the morning. 

I recently spoke about all of the products I am currently using, and what I think about them, in my latest youtube video. 

I hope you enjoy!

organising your life

Do you ever feel unorganised? 

I definitely get times where I feel as though my life is all over the place. However, come December time I get so excited to re purchase a new diary for the upcoming year, that my organisation goes into full swing. 
I have been searching for the perfect diary for a while now, and I kept seeing advertisements for Kikki.K on Instagram and thought their products looked so aesthetically pleasing... and then they opened a store near where I live. Well I could live in that store, its a stationary girl's dream. I routed through the different 2017 diaries and finally decided on this one. It's in my current favourite dusty pink colour and it's got the perfect week view layout, but even better it comes with stickers! 
At the back of the diary, it has pages where you can jot down your favourite movies, restaurants/bars, books, tv programmes. I think that is such a cool idea, because I always make a mental note of the places I want to try out, or the books I want to read, but they very easily get lost among the rest of my thoughts. 

Are you like me and love the excitement of purchasing a new diary, ready for the new year? I feel like i'm talking about the cliché 'New Year, New Me'.

Hey Everyone,

I recently shot a lookbook over on my youtube channel, and I thought I would share with you the outfits. I had so much fun shooting this, although let me tell you, behind the scenes is not so glamorous, its bloody freezing in November, but I'm so pleased with how it turned out. 
I'm completely obsessed with this dust pink colour I have in my top and bobble hat, that I teamed with my current favourite dungarees. 

My third outfit was the zara faux suede coat with the most beautiful bell sleeve jumper, which is just so cool I absolutely love it. And the final outfit, was a super casual cream oversized jumper with of course black jeans and my trusty vans. 

 all of the clothes shown are all linked in my youtube description box, let me know what your favourite outfit is.

a weekend vlog

Hey guys, 

Sometimes I have fun weekends, which are often few and far between, but hey they are there none the less. I thought that since I have been doing alot of sit down chatty videos recently, it would be nice to do more of a raw vlog, so you get to see more of my personality and who I am. I can't say for my first attempt it is brilliant but hey, this is a learning curve, right. 

I spent the weekend with my boyfriend, where we spent the morning roaming around Richmond park, in search of deer (yes we found them). We also came across a rope swing, which I had far too much fun on, I am pretty much a kid at heart. 
We then made our way into London, so that my boyfriend could get the train home *cries*. I then chatted about the struggle of long distance relationships, so if any of you would like a full video/ blog post on this, then please do let me know, and if I can help someone else out there going through the same thing, then that would be amazing. I know too well how lonely it can often be. 

Anyway, enough of my rambles, I have included the vlog below if you would like to see the things I got up to. Let me know if you like it, and you would be interested in seeing more.
