My Hen Weekend

Last Friday (the 22nd of May) me and five of my bravest (!) friends hopped on a train to Edinburgh for my hen weekend. And it was absolutely fantastic! I went with my friends Cheryl (who has been mentioned on this blog before), Lynsey (who you may know from Allsorts and Anecdotes), Anna, Samantha and ...

10 Wedding Dresses Under £500

I think it's pretty obvious to anyone who read my Buying Two Wedding Dresses post that I spent over £500 on my wedding dresses. However I didn't blow my wedding budget and I don't believe you need to break the bank to buy a gorgeous wedding dress. So here are my top 10 Wedding Dresses ...

Arbonne Product Reviews and Comparisons

Arbonne is a company that, until recently, I only knew a little about. You may not have even heard of them because they don't do any traditional advertising and grow their consumer base using network marketing (marketing by word of mouth or referrals). I was given the opportunity to review some Arbonne products and thought ...

Beauty Confidential with House of Fraser

I was lucky enough to be invited to House of Fraser's Beauty Confidential event in Glasgow last week, and I had an absolutely fantastic time. It's been a wee while since I've been to an event as I took a (fairly unintentional) break from blogging a few years ago and as a result I was a ...

Easy One Pan Chicken Recipe

Another simple recipe for you today! The challenge has ended but I'm having too much fun with these new recipes to stop now, and as I mentioned in my update I'm feeling a lot better for it! Chris and I are loving this dish, and it's so easy to make. You only need one pan! Easy ...

Poorly Dog and a Treat from the Petshop.co.uk

My oldest dog Ollie hasn't been very well lately. He jumped off my bed (despite the helpful stool there to stop him from jumping!) and has ruptured one of the ligaments in his knee. He's been told he needs strict rest, which isn't easy for him! He's also had an infected tooth removed and is ...

My 40 Day Healthy Living Challenge UPDATE

Bad blogger alert! It has been OVER FOUR WEEKS since I started my 40 Day Healthy Living Challenge and I haven't posted one update on the blog despite promising to. I have posted a selection of recipes, which you can view by clicking the 'Lifestyle' category in the main menu (if I post a few ...

Asian Style Tuna Steaks Recipe

This has definitely been one of the best recipes I've made so far in my challenge. I think my quick Teriyaki Chicken with Vegetables Recipe only just beats it! This is a really quick meal to make (you can't even marinate the tuna for longer than 30 minutes - perfect for fast food!) and is ...

Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless Review

Last weekend I was on the hunt for a new mascara that wasn't going to cost me an absolute fortune (my most recent mascaras have included Soap and Glory, Chanel and Benefit's 'They're Real', none of which are worth the price tag) and spied Rimmel's Lash Accelerator Endless, in Extra Black. I've actually used this ...

Honeymoon Inspiration

You may have read about my honeymoon plans already on the blog (if not you can see them here) and got a sense of how stressed I was organising it. Honestly, it should have been a great experience but our collective indecisiveness and attempts at budget planning made it extremely difficult. In hindsight, it might ...
