Monthly Blogger Love - March ♥

Okay so this post didn't go very well considering that my last one was in August. Seeing as I am really back to blogging now, I figured now would be a good time to get this monthly post back up and running. I have seen so many new blogs and they need a mention, some I really have no idea why they don't have the millions of followers that they deserve. Anyways, I figured I would show my love for them this month and show off the blogs that I have really been enjoying in the month of February.

My Top Tips For New Bloggers

I have been blogging now for almost 4 years (in August) - I cannot believe it has been that long, it makes me feel quite old. I am 26 next month and I can't ever see myself giving this little beauty up any time soon. Over the years I guess I have gained some knowledge, and I have decided today I want to share that with you all.

Black & Grey With SheInside

SheInside OOTD

I know Spring is supposed to be here and with it being the first day last week, we are supposed to be seeing some sunshine right? Well in England we have had a few days here and there, but nothing to write home about. Nevertheless I am still much a very black and grey kind of girl and this is usually my go to kind of outfit.

No7 Brush Cleanser Review

Real Techniques Core Collection Brush Set

Hello lovelies! Today I'm going to be talking to you all about one thing most of us girls know all about. Make-up brushes. I know not everyone uses them and for a long time I didn't either. It wasn't until I began blogging that I heard about Real Techniques and decided to buy some. These came highly recommended and I have not regretted it one bit.

Lush Henna Block Review

Just in case you haven't already guessed, I am a self confessed Lush addict. I have loved Lush since I was introduced by a friend in high school. Roughly when I was around 12-13. She loved it and now I'm completely obsessed and have been since I can remember. There used to be a few shops, the Chester one was the closest to me, so my mum used to take me now and again. Now we have two shops in Manchester and one at the Trafford Centre! 

Today I'm going to chat about one of my favourite products and why I love it, also a little bit of detail about how I use it.

Life Update

Happy Sunday Beauties!

It's been a while since I've done one of these kinds of posts, I used to really enjoy writing them. As I usually post on a Wednesday, Friday and Sunday I figured I would try and do one now and again. My Word of the Week posts (WOTW) are really important to me, I like to share my faith as its who I am. Even if not everyone necessarily agrees. So I've decided to sit down get a brew and have a good old chat with you. Looking back over the last month or so, to let you know what I've been up to and what I've been thinking about.

Essentials For My Gym Bag

As I've been at the gym so much lately, when I'm there I always take a bag and apart from the obvious water, sweat towel and gym lock there are so many other items I always have handy. Here are just some of the bits that I like to have in my gym bag, and why I feel like I need to have these.

When it comes to hunger, I am terrible for feeling super peckish and I am so tempted to reach for something easy like chocolate or crisps. So I like to have a healthy treat in my gym bag for when I'm out and about or when I first come out of the gym. Instead of eating bad stuff I usually have something full of protein like a shake or protein chia bar.

Lush Golden Handshake Review

I have been wanting to write about this product for such a long time, it has been sat by my bed  just waiting to be used. I finally got a chance to do it and my hands are definitely thanking me for it. So here are my thoughts on it!

I first popped into Lush just to get my usual Henna block to dye my hair. As usual I ended up wandering around the shop and spending half my wage. I find it impossible to just go in Lush for one thing without having a good look around. So when I spotted this little beauty near the hand creams, I snapped it up. Its the Lush Golden Handshake, which I picked up for only £2.95. I thought that was  a great price for such a good product. The Lush hand creams are great so since my hands have been really suffering this winter, I figured I may as well give it a try.

February Favourites

 As March is now upon us already (how scary is that), I figured now would be a good time to do my February favourites for last month. I've been using so many things this month that it may be a long one. So grab a cuppa and sit back and get ready for a good read.

Spring Wishlist

Spring is upon us and with so many cute items on the high street I couldn't not do a wishlist of all of those little beauties. So here are some of the picks that I have spotted whilst looking online and in stores too. With winter and autumn being my favourite seasons I'm not overly keen on it getting warmer. I love the colder months but I am also still looking forward to spring/summer. I love watching the seasons change, the gorgeous colours of spring and also it's my birthday in spring!

So here are all the lovely items I've been drooling over!

I got this from the lovely Steph over at Hello, Steph. Go over and check her blog out, give her a follow you won't regret it!

This post is all about appreciating the little things that make you happy in your day to day life. Sometimes the most simple nice things can happen, and it can make such a difference to your day. When you are nice to someone also it can do wonders for them, you can be so much happier all day long. Do a good deed and see for yourself.
