If you've followed my monthly playlists then you'll know I LOVE my music. I've been trying to keep at the gym during the winter months and not let the dark mornings put me off and to keep me motivated I've been listening to some great workout songs (obviously including the Christmas tunes too!) I want to maintain my fitness rather than letting it slide during December and then having to start all over again in January and it's bloody freezing in England so if anything going to the gym at least keeps me warm!

I know it's only the second week of November but I'm way too excited for Christmas and couldn't wait to share with you the new Christmas ranges from the Body Shop.

September 2017 marked four years since I met my boyfriend Jay and today is our official 4 year anniversary. I can't believe it's been four years, it's gone so quickly! Back in my second year of uni I met jay in what used to be the most hilarious nightclub in Sheffield; Embrace on the sticky dance floor with a double vodka and lemonade in hand, and the rest is history so they say!

Some of my favourite blog posts to read are those that focus on different brands. It helps me to know what products bloggers are loving and also gives me an insight into brands I may not have tried before. Today I'm doing a brand focus on L'Oreal Paris because it's a brand I've tried and tested numerous times and some of my all time favourite drugstore products come from L'Oreal. L'Oreal Paris is a brand you can find readily available in your local supermarket however it also has numerous subsidiaries such as luxury brands like Lancome, YSL and Giorgio Armani. When it comes to beauty and skincare I think it's safe to say that they're up there at the top and they know their shit; which is why I love their products.

L'Oreal Super Liner
I won't lie, I'm not much of an eye liner girl but when I wear lashes on a night out I can't go without a good flick. I love the L'Oreal Super Liner as it's like a felt tip nib and helps those of us out who aren't a pro when it comes to putting on a liner! I find it dries really quickly but doesn't budge when it's on the eye either. I highly recommend.

L'Oreal Lumi Magique Foundation

If you've read my blog for a while or have checked out my previous posts about my skin type then you'll know I suffer from quite dry skin. I always used to struggle to find foundations that kept my skin looking dewy but didn't dry me out. I stumbled across the L'Oreal Lumi Magique foundation one afternoon a couple of months ago and I'm so happy I did because it's certainly a firm favourite in my collection. I've got a light shade for when I'm pale and a slightly darker shade for when I am tanned or on a night out. It applies really evenly and it buildable too. I find it gives a medium to full coverage and is definitely a dewy finish.

L'Oreal Paradise Mascara

This is hands down one of my all time favourite drugstore mascaras. In fact, I'd go as far as to say it does get top place! I purchased this because I heard so much hype about the Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara and was looking for a drugstore alternative and lots of people recommended this one. It gives my lashes volume, thickens them and gives them so much length. I find that mascaras that volume can sometimes make my lashes look clumpy, but this one does the opposite and helps separate my lashes whilst still making them full. I have repurchased this already and will be continuing to when my next tube runs out. I couldn't recommend this enough!

Over the last couple of years of blogging I've seen my photography game change. Now I'm not by any means saying that my photography is amazing because lets face it I know it's not, but I have started to explore different ways of making my photography stand out a bit more and use different props and materials to give my photos something a bit different. I recently shared with you my blogging essentials which got a lot of love and this post is hopefully going to help you when it comes to making your photos stand out and be even better so that you can improve the quality of your blog.

I really love photography and since I've purchased my Olympus Pen camera I've started to fall in love even more. If I could go back in time to Sixth Form I'd love to have done a photography course. I've booked onto one in the new year in order to help me become better at it and I'm very excited for it.

Anyway, It's not all about the camera you have! I've been taking my blog photos over the years using my iPhone and although the quality isn't incredible, it's definitely ok and using different props definitely helps so I thought I’d share with you a few of my favourite props in the hope that it might help some of you guys!

The autumn season screams burgundy and I absolutely love it. If you know me well then you'll know that my favourite colour is burgundy! Whether it's nail varnish, jumpers, handbags or lipstick. I love the colour and it suits my skin tone too. I do Ebay Wishlist posts every now and again and they prove to be very popular so I thought I'd combine my favourite things; Ebay and Burgundy to bring you an Ebay Wishlist - The Burgundy Edit!

The months are literally flying bye and I can't believe we're already in November! It's only 55 days until Christmas day! (I promise I'm not excited or anything!) This month I've been loving lots of bits and pieces; both beauty and fashion and a few random favourites too (of course). I have been loving all things autumn and been trying to get ahead on my blog too by writing and scheduling posts because I'm attempting blogmas in December which is always a challenge! Anyway .. onto my October favourites!

It's nearly November which means it's time for another playlist post. I have had quite a busy October and its gone extremely fast but I don't mind because it means it's nearer to Christmas. I've got lots of exciting plans in November and December too including going to Radio 1 Xtra concert in Manchester so I've been listening to a few tracks from artists who will be playing there.

In hindsight all you need to blog is a laptop or phone and your ideas however there are some items that you can use to help make blogging easier and help develop better content too. When I started my blog over 3 years ago, I had no idea what I was doing! I just wanted to write my thoughts down somewhere and be part of a community I'd loved for so long. All I had was my blogger account, my iPhone 5 and a notebook and away I went. Now I'm not saying you need to have the best cameras and a Macbook Pro to blog because that's not true, there is no right or wrong to which equipment you use. However I thought it would be nice to share with you what I use to run my blog now that it's evolved over the years.

It's no secret that I'm a beauty addict. I love all things beauty and have collected a fair amount of make up over the years. Having tried and tested lots of products I've grown to love a few items more than the rest and I'd go as far as saying I couldn't live without them. They're my go to holy grail items and if you've not tried them yourselves then you need to head down to your local beauty store to test them out.
