Oops..where have the last few months gone? I have no better reason or excuse for my absence other than that life and working 9- 5 (.30) got rather in the way. Sometimes when you're brain is ticking away all day it's hard to make the time to sit and type away. BUT, I want to get this little blog back up and running because I've missed it! I've been inspired by some of my favourite blogs recently so I knew I wanted to start tip tapping away again. 

I thought there wasn't a better place to start other than getting you up to speed on some of the highlights over the last few months (if you don't follow me on Instagram!). 

Back in August, my friend Charlotte and I went along to The Bloggers Market which was the second year running. We had a lovely day filled with doughnuts and Appletiser. We got to meet the lovely Olivia and you can even see a cheeky shot of me over on Carrie's blog here

A little time before The Bloggers Market I attended my cousin's wedding and I had to share this photo as the decor was beyond gorgeous. This image would have to sum up my dream wedding. *sigh*

Back in August Dan and I celebrated our 9th anniversary and he surprised me with a trip to Norwich, one of our favourite places. I'm not sure why Norfolk holds such a special place in my heart, but it does. I love the city and I love how close to the pretty seaside you are too. If you do visit Norwich any time soon, make sure you grab an Oreo brownie from Cupcake and Co in the market..nom nom. 

Last month I was lucky enough to be invited to Fleur De Force's beauty launch and it was one of the best events I've attended, bravo Feel Unique! All the ladies I spoke to were so so lovely, including Fleur herself. I had a lot of love for Jade, Chelsea, Megan and Carly that night! Check out the vlog here

Me and my best pal Charlotte became 13 year old fan girls when we went to see One Direction last month, who by the way were AMAZING. It was such a good night and the boys did good. Plus, we were super close. If you want to see us get up close and personal, watch my vlog here

I haven't particularly enjoyed the darker mornings and evenings, but I have been enjoying the fashion that Autumn brings. It's meant I can don my favourite Topshop jacket (here's a similar one) and new shirt from New Look (which I have lived in recently). 

And phew, we're back up to speed as here's some pictures from last weekend when I went to London with my lovely sister and mum. We went to the Fashion and Textile museum to see the new Liberty in Fashion exhibition which was rather good. It was such a lovely day, albeit a little cold! 

I'm looking forward to getting my blog back. I hope you are too. Let me know in the comments what you've been up to recently!

Feel Unique were kind enough to give me a voucher recently so I decided to treat myself to a few bits and thought I would show you! 

The first item on my wish list had been the Benefit Roller Lash mascara. I’ve had the mini tester for a while and I have been using it every day as I just love it. It makes my eyelashes look long, thick and curly…what could be better? Although I do find it expensive for a mascara, I think the packaging makes up for it. I love the cute chunky pink lid too. 

The next item that has been on my wish list for a while is theBalm Mary Lou Manizer Luminizer. Two of my favourites Alix and Estee are always raving about this so I couldn't wait to treat myself. I've used this once already and it is gorgeous; it's such a subtle shimmer as it doesn't have any glitter. I am in love with theBalm FratBoy blush so I definitely think the brand is becoming one of my favourites. 

Another Alix enabled purchase is the Bourjois ColorBand eyeshadow pencil in Brun Dadaiste. When she used this in a video I knew I had to get my hands on it. I actually have the Beige shade of this but I haven't been impressed with the colour pay off. I'm hoping this one will change my mind on the product though!

The Origins GinZing moisturiser is actually a repurchase as this is an old favourite of mine. I used to use this so much but my pot started looking a bit sad so I stopped using it for a while. I like to use this in the mornings as it gives me a bit of kick and I love the refreshing feeling it gives. I also love the scent! 

The last product that I have been eyeing up for a while is the Rimmel Moisture Renew lipstick In Love With Ginger. This is another product that has done its blogging rounds but I finally decided to give it a go. I think this is probably better used more subtly and applied using the finger or a lip brush as I can imagine it would bleed quite badly if you were to apply it with the stick all over. I can't wait to start using this though.

I hope you like seeing my latest purchases and let me know in the comments what beauty products you've been loving recently.

Wow, hello again blog. I think this is the longest (unplanned) break I've taken from my little writing space on the internet. I wish I had a good excuse but really, having a full time job, running a home and uploading weekly videos to YouTube has taken its toll on me the last few months and has meant my little blog has slipped away from me. I've got my inspiration and motivation back now though so I want to get you up to speed. Before I do that I want to share my recent holiday with you as I had a rather lovely time. Let's get started. 

Dan and I went away with his family a couple of weeks ago and we went to the rather beautiful Crete. We stayed in this lovely villa just outside Elounda village which we found on Owner's Direct. I love staying in villas because it feels so luxurious and so peaceful. The first photo is one of the best beaches I've ever been to- Istro. It was a small, quiet, tucked away beach with lovely sand and such clear blue water. We spent most of our days lazing around here.

A few of our evenings were spent in Plaka, which was such a cute little seaside village, over looking Spinalonga Island across the water. There were under ten restaurants there so it had a really lovely intimate feel to it. I loved all the little touches in the restaurants and in the shops.

One day we actually took a little trip to Spinalonga, getting a boat across from Plaka. It was a pretty eerie place but it was interesting to see a bit of culture and history, as well as the gorgeous views. 

We spent a bit of time in another little seaside town called Sissi and we played a fun round of crazy golf (had to be done!). It would have been nice to eat here of an evening but it was a bit far to drive back. 

Our other evenings were spent in Elounda and Agios Nikoloas. Elounda was such a great place for dinner as it was relaxed, but also had enough buzz for an enjoyable evening. One night we visited Rady's Cocktail Bar which was so lovely but the cocktails were the strongest cocktails I've ever drunk. Unsurprisingly I had a good night! This last photo was taken in Agios Nikolaos. The photos make it look like a little Venice, but unfortunately we weren't too impressed with the places to eat, it didn't have a nice feel like the others. 

One of the best days was spent on Chrissi Island which was such a magical place. I love finding a good beach and this was beautiful. The sand was so lovely and the water was so clear and blue. If you're visiting Crete, I would definitely recommend a day trip to the island! 

I loved writing this blog post as it took me back to the lovely holiday! Although now I really want to book another one! I hope you enjoyed my pictures and reading about my holiday. Let me know in the comments if you've got a holiday planned this year. Thanks for sticking with me! 

I've just uploaded my holiday vlog and lookbook so I'll put that below too!

This weekend I feel like I fell in love with our flat all over again and it was definitely something to do with all the pretty flowers and chocolate dotted around. I felt inspired to take photos of all the cute additions and I thought I would share them with you.

Dan surprised me with the most gorgeous flowers for Easter; I hadn't even got him an egg so I felt rather guilty! He knows my favourite flowers are tulips and I just love how the white, yellow and pink colours all compliment each other. The cute colourful eggs were a lovely surprise from Feel Unique and I thought they were too lovely not to have out in a bowl! 

This weekend finally saw us find the rug we have been searching for since we moved out. I never realised how pricey rugs were before I started looking, so we struggled to find one within our budget that we liked. We happened to pop into our local TK Maxx and we stumbled upon this beauty of a bargain; I wasn’t 100% when we got it home but after asking on Instagram and Twitter, I knew I had to keep it. I love the gorgeous colours and how it compliments the room. 

I had the loveliest Easter weekend which was filled with hot tub fun with my friends and an Easter egg hunt with my family. I even baked brownies which you can see here too! You can see what else I got up to over on my Instagram

Primark pineapple candle | Primark pink & gold candle | Flamingo Gifts Mr P kiss mug | Primark flamingo cushion | Primark triangle cushion | Primark duvet cover | Flamingo Gifts Enjoy the little things sign | Flamingo Gifts sticky notes | Flamingo Gifts glasses case

Now that we have our own little flat, I've got a bit obsessed with home stuff! I just love adding little touches to create our own stamp on the place. Primark are really killing it with their home stuff at the moment. I started off by finding the cute cushions and we thought they'd be perfect on our grey sofa, mixed with our other colourful cushions. I think the patterns on the cushions are super cute and for £4, I knew we had to have them. I then discovered they had this geometric duvet cover, which is perfect for what I've been trying to get recently. I cannot wait to put this on our bed. 

I also can't believe how cheap (£2!) and cute the Primark pineapple candle is; I've been after something Pineapple for so long and I couldn't believe I managed to get it in Primark! The pink and gold candle will look great against my makeup storage and I didn't even realise till after I'd got it that it was a smelly candle too! 

When Flamingo Gifts asked if I wanted to choose a few items from their site, I was immediately drawn to the Mr P kiss mug as I love this little collection, I have a tea drip one which I adore, so now they can be friends! I've also recently joined the four-eyed gang so I really wanted a nice case for my glasses and this Vintage Ivy one is perfect. I'm also a bit of a stationary geek so I decided to go for this cute little set of sticky notes; I can't wait to start sticking pretty notes everywhere! This Enjoy The Little Things sign now hangs in our kitchen; I love quotes and I especially like this one.

What do you think of my little home additions? I rather like them.

My friend Charlotte and I ventured off to London to get involved in the Fashion Weekend action. After a disastrous (but hilarious) hour long tube journey, we finally made it to Somerset House! As well as getting to peruse all of the lovely (but expensive) pop up shops, we got to sit second row at the Halston Heritage show, which was filled with a mix of flowing pastels and tailored pretty pink shorts. 

After getting a bit disgruntled that we couldn’t squeeze into hear the talks (and losing my phone), we decided to head to Covent Garden to get a bite to eat! We decided to give Wahaca a go and it was SO delicious, especially the guacamole. 

Once our bellies were full and we'd accidentally drunk our neighbouring table’s drinks, (which is a whole other story), we popped to Oxford Street to brave Topshop. On the way though we had to stop and look at the pretty Liberty flower stand! After having three goes in the Topshop Photo Booth, after a couple of funny failed attempts, we decided it was time to head home! 

I had such a lovely day in London and I realised I had really missed London! I vlogged the trip which will be on my YouTube channel very soon.
