You may have seen us girls with a pom pom on our keys or our handbags, they really do add stylish detail. At just £3.99 each they are the perfect stocking filler.

5. Real Techniques Deluxe Holiday Set
Currently, Superdrug are offering £10 off this make up brush set by Real Techniques, taking the price down to £20. Girls can never have too many make up brushes, especially around party season!

Nope, still don't care!

Okay, for as long as I can remember I have ALWAYS been extremely bothered about people's opinions of me and I am always trying to keep people happy! So..after buying this jumper, it got me thinking.. there is more to life than constantly trying to please other people! I have also realised it is impossible to please everyone, particularly in the blogging world! Saying that, I am finally starting to focus on me and I feel so much happier for it! 

Anyway, moving on! I am an absolute sucker for an all-black outfit and the below is very casual and perfect for those 'can't be bothered' days!

My HiSmile Experience...

Sunday, November 08, 2015

Like many of us, I am constantly trying out new products to prolong the whiteness of my teeth! There are a large number of products on the market and I'm sure you will agree that we are spoilt for choice! I hadn't previously heard of HiSmile but I couldn't wait to try it after carrying out a little research!

HiSmile offer a peroxide-free whitening system that doesn't contain any nasty chemicals; the most important factor to consider when purchasing whitening products!

As you can see, the kit is packaged in a lovely box complete with everything you need to boost that white smile! It contains an LED light complete with a mouth guard, 3 peroxide free gels, a whitening shade chart and an instruction booklet.

It is extremely simple to use and it takes just ten minutes per session - perfect if you lead a busy lifestyle! I have only been using HiSmile for a few days and I can definitely tell a difference already! I have to admit I am a little surprised, particularly because I am such a tea and coffee lover, but my teeth have really improved!

If you fancy trying out HiSmile for yourself check out their full range of products online here.

Thanks for reading!

Disclosure: I was sent a HiSmile kit for review purposes and all opinions are always 100% honest. 

Shine bright like a diamond...

Tuesday, November 03, 2015

In my opinion, an outfit is never complete without earrings! Whether that be a brand new pair or a trusty, classic pair! I recently collaborated with Diamond Boutique, fine diamond specialists, based in London. I was lucky enough to receive a beautiful pair of Diamond Boutique studded earrings and it is now safe to say that I agree with the statement.. Diamonds are a girls best friend.. 

Earrings can sometimes be a little overpowering but I feel these are just right; simple yet classy. Studs are a timeless piece, they are perfect for daytime attire or evening glam. Diamond Boutique offers luxury jewellery suited to a variety of budgets! Take a glimpse of my studs here

As some of you may have noticed I am a little fussy when it comes to jewellery, particularly with earrings! I very rarely blog/post about new earrings mainly because I suffer badly with allergic reactions and consequently wear the same pairs! I have had absolutely no problems with my ears since wearing these, which of course, is a big bonus! I am sure you will see more of these earrings in future blog posts!
