A Little Homeware Haul

Would you believe it? Me doing a homeware haul! In the whole time I've been blogging I've never done a homeware post, but hey, there's a first for everything, right?
Technically this isn't all from one big shopping spree but over a course of a few weeks and I thought it would be quite nice to save up all the things I've bought to go in my bedroom and actually write a blog post. You may have seen a few of these already on my instagram but I wanted to put them all together in one place.
Now i'm just dying to show you what I got.

Dinki Belle Nail Wraps

If you know me by now, you'll know how much I love doing my nails with my favourite nail polish. However, I don't always have the time, or the patience, to sit and wait for each coat to dry for my perfectly manicured nails.
I've always wanted to try nail art, but me doing something that fiddly would most probably end up a disaster. So you can imagine how excited I was when I got hold of a set of Dinki Belle Nail Wraps.

The Autumn Outfit with Sammydress*

I always find Autumn to be quite a tricky season to style an outfit as you're never sure what the weather's going to be like when you leave the house in the morning, freezing temperatures and drizzly rain one minute or a blistering heatwave the next.
I've been wanting to update my wardrobe for a while now after having a huge clear out of items that I no longer wear. I needed to add a few key pieces in Autumnal colours that would see me through the next few months. And I've found just the most perfect dress!

Hydro Face Mask by Vitamasques

I've been so excited at the thought of trying out a sheet style mask ever since they came on the beauty scene a while back. They are wonderful little masks full of amazing ingredients and promise to give super hydration to the skin, which is just what I need when we're going into a new season where my skin can start to feel a little bit drier than it normally does.
The Vitamasques Hydro Face Mask has been designed to give super hydration thanks to the Artificial Moisturising Factor (AMF) which enhances the skin ability to retain moisture for up to 120 hours, that's nearly a whole week! It also contains extracts of Rose of Jericho for an extra moisturising boost, which is fabulous if you're like me and can suffer from dry, dehydrated skin.

October Goals

It's not only the start of a new month but October is officially the start of Autumn, with hot chocolates, cosy nights in and pumpkin or gingerbread candles creating that warm, homely smell.
As I start a new page in my diary I thought it would be quite nice to share 7 goals I'd like to achieve this month.

September Beauty Favourites

Well, here we are again, another month has passed by and I'm searching through all of my beauty products to see what I've really enjoyed using the most throughout September. Can you believe that Summer has been and gone, and we're now going into Autumn which I'm really looking forward to so much this year, it could be my new favourite season. My pumpkin candle has already been lit a couple of evenings this week and I've been eyeing up all the gorgeous new coats and knitwear that are in the shops right now. And I've even been making plans for Christmas, which is so organised for me it's unreal! One thing I can't bring myself to enjoy is a Pumpkin Spice Latte, yuk, it's just too milky for my liking, no I'll always be a cappuccino girl!

I have a lot of new additions this month so I'd better stop chatting and talk you through what's made it into this month's beauty favourites.

Tea and Cake at Molly's

You know those times when you walk down the same street you've walked down a hundred times before and you're in your own little world, thinking about a million and one things you have to do. Well it was one of those occasions when a friend, who I'd not seen in ages, stopped me to say hello. We chatted for a bit and caught up with what was happening in each other's lives, when she suddenly asked me if I'd ever been in Molly's Tea Room and she pointed towards the shop that we were standing right outside. I had to admit I didn't even know it was there! She asked me if I'd got time for a quick cup of tea and it just so happened that particular day I was on top of my very long to do list. So in we went.
