Drugstore Haul January 2016

Every time I find myself walking past Boots or Superdrug, I cannot help but wander in. Lured by the bright lights and beauty essentials inside, I find myself walking over its threshold convinced there are multiple products I need stocking up on or testing out. This time I walked into Boots and ASDA for a mini drugstore haul and this is what I picked up.

My Chanel Lipstick Collection

There's something about lipstick. I have always picked up drugstore lipsticks for convenience and budget, but over the recent months, I have branched out a little experimenting with high end lipsticks. Chanel has always been a brand that instantly comes to mind when I think of quality make up and often find myself perusing their counters, so it comes as no surprise that I've built up a little bit of a collection for myself.

House of Tilbury | Charlotte Tilbury Store | Covent Garden

Ask any beauty blogger what beauty brands hit the top of their wishlist and chances are Charlotte Tilbury features quite prominently. I personally only heard about Charlotte Tilbury quite recently, mainly thanks to YouTube videos praising her Pillow Talk lip liner and her lipstick line highly as well as seeing her beauty stand at Selfridges. So when Charlotte Tilbury announced she was opening a standalone store in the heart of London in Covent Garden, I had to of course pop along and check the store out.

Episode B: Biosciences and Banking

As far back as I can remember, the one thing that was repeated constantly in my childhood was "I don't care what you do, just make sure you go to university and graduate". 

Welcome back to Episode B of my A-Z series - Biosciences and Banking.

Southampton | Photo Diary

A while ago I had booked a weekend away to Southampton to get out of the big smoke that is London, clear my head and refresh myself. Unbeknown to me, I would get struck down by food poisoning a day or so before which meant I was in two minds about actually going. But I carried on, travelled on a two hour coach journey and made it down south enjoying a wintry January weekend in Hants while it snowed up in London.

Episode A: All About Andrew

I've had my blog for coming up to 2 years and time sure does fly. My first post when I decided to start writing on a more regular basis was back in May 2014 after my first holiday overseas to Barcelona, Spain with my other half. Since then, he's featured in more than a couple posts so for today's A episode I'm going to turn the spotlight on the guy who I've referred to as my OH, the boy, and Mr LGD - Andrew.

Coco Chanel Rouge N°432 Cécile

I feel like 2016 will be the Year of the Lipstick for me. It was something I started enjoying towards the end of 2015 purchasing MAC's Twig and Brave, being gifted Velvet Teddy and spontaneously picking up Charlotte Tilbury's Hepburn Honey, and looks like something that is definitely set to continue in 2016. It only seemed right for me to start looking for a new lip product and what better start is there than browsing the Chanel counter?

How To Have a Fresh Start in 2016

We are exactly one week into 2016 and within the last 168 hours, I have lost count of the number of people who have hashtagged the life out of #newyearnewme, signed up for a new gym membership or are genuinely considering actually visiting the gym (guilty as charged) and started dry January all in a bid to make ourselves healthier and have a positive outlook on life. While we don't necessarily need to wait until the 1st January each year to kick start ourselves into action, here are some tips to get you started on the right track to achieving your goals

Riding House Cafe | London

Nestled on the corner of a quiet street in London is the infamous Riding House Cafe. Less than 10 minutes walk away is the busy Oxford Street in central London, which we left behind in the middle of December to eat on a Thursday evening when one of my friends was visiting London for the festive period. I heard a lot about the breakfast, not so much about the dinner but with all the reviews of this place, it sounded like I was in for a treat.
