Peanuts and Eggcups by Sara Mendes de Costa

I've been lucky enough to be invited to take part in the Blog Tour for Sara Mendes de Costa's new novel Peanuts and Eggcups. When the email invitation popped up in my inbox, I was super intrigued by the novel, and jumped at the opportunity to take part in the blog tour. Today, I'm sharing my thoughts on the novel, as well as a short extract from Peanuts and Eggcups, to hopefully tempt you into picking this up too.

Walt Disney World 2016 Haul

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll probably know that this April, I went on a family holiday to Walt Disney World. And if there was one thing I was particularly looking forward to when I was out there, it was the shopping. I love a bit of Disney merchandise, so having it all in one place was just the dream. I knew I’d come home with plenty of bits and bobs, and I thought I’d share what I picked up. There's quite a bit, so grab yourself a drink and a snack, and we'll get started.

A Michael Kors Treat

As soon as I walked through the doors of the Michael Kors store at the Orlando InternationalPremium Outlets, I knew I’d walk out with something. I probably would’ve been quite content with a keyring in all honesty, just to say I’d shopped there. But of course, once I started wandering around, I fell in love with so many items, before setting my eyes on this beauty.

#Blogival - The Anti-Ageing Food & Fitness Plan

As my final post as part of the Clink Street Summer Blogival, I'm sharing a little Question and Answer session with Rick Hay, the author of The Anti-Ageing Food and Fitness Plan. Offering the opportunity to "tune up, tone up and rev up with an inspired but easy-to-follow twelve-week healthy eating plan that unlocks the remarkable power of superfoods, and high-intensity exercises, for all fitness levels." Now I'm intrigued by the opportunity to improve my physical well-being, and want to learn more, so I jumped at the opportunity to pick the author's brains.

Review - L'Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation

When the hype for the new foundation release from L’Oreal first started, I was a little apprehensive. A foundation cushion? How does that even work? I put off trying it because I was sure that it wouldn’t suit my skin type or foundation preferences. But when I finally headed into Boots and gave it a little swatch, I was more than pleasantly surprised.

Springtime OOTD

We all know that dressing for spring in the U.K. can be rather tricky. You want to whack out all the summery clothes, but you can’t go out without a jacket, tights, an umbrella. So when we sotonbloggers got together to celebrate Jess’s 21st birthday a few weeks ago, I had to wrack my brains for an appropriate outfit. Something cute and as summery as I could get, but still weather appropriate.

#Blogival - How to be a Yogi


As this week's #Blogival instalment, I have been lucky enough to share a guest post by Vimla Lalvani, author of Real Yoga: A Pure and Simple Journey. I've always been interested in yoga and have wanted to learn more about it, so to have the opportunity to hear something from the author themselves on the subject was something I was thrilled to have the opportunity to do.

Sephora Haul

When visiting the United States, it’d be rude not to take a sneaky little trip to Sephora right? So on my recent holiday to Florida, I managed to wangle a trip into the store of beauty bloggers’ dreams. I’d spent a fair amount of time before we flew out researching people’s favourite products, so I had a wishlist of products to search for. As expected, I was slightly overwhelmed by it all, but obviously I came away with a bag full of goodies, which I thought I’d share with you today.

Giorgio Armani Beauty Event

I’m lucky enough to attend various events with the sotonbloggers and when the email dropped into my inbox inviting me to an evening spent with the lovely ladies at Giorgio Armani in my local John Lewis, I couldn’t resist. I’ve never tried anything from Armani’s beauty range, so I was looking forward to seeing what they had to offer and learn a bit more about the brand. When we arrived at the counter, we were greeted by the lovely Kayley and Steph with a glass of Prosecco, a bloggers’ favourite. After a quick mooch around the counter, we were guided over to our little area for the evening, where we were talked through Armani’s summer look.
