Things to do in the summer holidays

The summer holidays are fab, especially when you get to year 11 and onwards because you get months off. However, you can quickly run out of ideas for things to do and become bored – which is still better than being at school/college/uni, but I’ve put together a list of fun things to do in the sun! I don’t actually get a summer holiday this year as I’m working full time, so I’m going to live my summer through this blog post instead – be sure to let me know what you’ve got up to so far this summer!

May favourites

This month I’ve been loving a lot of things so it’s been really difficult to narrow it down. First up would definitely have to be Sainsbury’s new marble/rose gold stationery range. If you follow my Instagram you may have seen my story where I was going on about wanting to buy every single thing – and this was no word of a lie.

Favourite five lipsticks

I really love how creamy and moisturising this lipstick feels and at the same time is really long lasting. Not to mention the colour which is just…

MAC vs bareMinerals

You may have seen my review a couple of months ago about MAC‘s Studio Fix Fluid foundation (if not you can check it out here). After two and a half months, it has almost ran out and so I decided to invest in another foundation. Not that I really had any issues with the Studio Fix – in fact I really liked it – I thought I’d just experiment and see if there was anything better out there. I’ve heard some really great things about the bareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum foundation and the reviews were all raving. At just…

Huge holiday haul

If you follow my Instagram for my blog you may have seen that I recently went on holiday to Devon. While I was away I ventured in to Exeter for a day to check out their shops – I wasn’t disappointed. I started off in New Look, which is a shop I’ll always end up back at. I first picked up this gorgeous watch. I already have a more expensive metal watch but wanted something that wouldn’t be tapping on the desk every time I typed something at work. It was an added bonus that the watch is actually really…
