Topshop t-shirt
Fiorelli bag

I've always been a tee and jeans kind of girl, ever since I can remember, so when I saw this t-shirt on the Topshop website, it had to be mine. It's from the Tee & Cake brand, and I can't seem to stop wearing it. Also, can we take a minute to appreciate how pretty my bag and shoes are? I've been wanting a pair of shoes like this and when I lost out on the River Island version, I pretty much pounced on these. This outfit is pretty much my every day outfit, comfortable and stylish. My fave.

It's been a while since I've posted, let alone done a haul post. I'm not going to lie, I think I've gone a little mental the past month or so and I think I need to go on a spending ban very soon. As for the purchases, I think I've gone a little adventurous, with two tops showing a little midriff. The Primark long chiffon t-shirt hides my middle slightly with the chiffon so I'm very happy with it, especially with it being maxi. I don't have anything like it in my wardrobe. The Warehouse cable knit crop top is from a co-ord and is absolutely stunning but I am a little tentative about getting my belly out. Moving on from my belly, I'm so glad I popped my head into Urban Outfitters. The necklaces are just what I was looking for, pretty chokers that can be worn as necklaces too. Just lovely! Now, my favourite purchase is definitely the New Look leather peep toe heels. They are beautiful just to look at and I cannot wait to get my toes out for these babies. 

What do you think of my haul?

Korres Sunflower & Evening Primrose Eyeshadows in Bronze Brown and Golden Bronze (£12) - House of Fraser

When I went to Skiathos a while ago, I picked up a few Korres products and by far my favourites were these little pots of joy. I use bronze/gold eyeshadows as my everyday base and these as a duo usually seem to find their way onto my lids on a daily basis. The pigmentation, especially on Golden Bronze, is incredibly good and I find they last a good 6 hours but will last until I take it off with a eye primer. £12 may seem a little steep for a single eyeshadow, but these are definitely up there with MAC and I would probably say I prefer them. They are veltet smooth, and have no fall out whatsoever. The sunflower and evening primrose oils within the product also care the delicate eye area, something we all need to keep an eye on!

Have you tried any Korres products?

Goodbye 2014, hello 2015



Today we said hello to a new year and many of us have decided that today will be the day that we change ourselves. I've done this every year and to be frank, I've never stuck to anything that I've said. I'm not going to say that this is year is going to be different but I've decided that my changes are going to be small, but enough to make a difference in my life. 

1) Positivity 
My other half has always called me a pessimist, and he's 100% right. I worry about every part of my daily life and take everything the wrong way and to be honest, it's absolutely exhausting. I'm going to try and look on the bright side and find something the be happy for each day. Pay a compliment, smile at a stranger, enjoy my life. It's a small step, but for me, this could be a massive leap forward to a happier life.

2) Reading
Most of you know that I'm an English Literature graduate and I absolutely love books but since I started working working shifts that find me starting at 6.30am 5 days a week, I'm conked out by 9pm. Not exactly great for a reading schedule. Now, I want to get back into reading so I've decided to read every day, even if it's just a chapter a night. I've done my Goodreads Reading Challenge and I've set myself a challenge of 30 books to read in 2015, let's do this.

3) Blogging
Back to the 6.30am starts, these early shifts genuinely get in the way of blogging, especially this time of the year. I barely see daylight 5 days a week so taking my blog pictures is an absolute pain in the rear end. I have decided that this isn't going to stop me anymore. I'm going to have to find the time to do this because it's a part of my life that I enjoy and miss desperately.

What are your 2015 changes?

Juci Wellbeing: 3 Day Detox: Review

Juci Wellbeing 3 Day Detox* (£94 introductory price) - Juci Wellbeing

Now, I'm guessing we've all had that point in the year (or many points) when we need to detox and have a body clear out and I made mine known publicly on Twitter one night after quite an amazing intake (if I do say so myself) of pizza. The next day, Juci Wellbeing, a new detox juice company from the North West of lovely ol' England came to my rescue. They heard my plea and asked if I would like to give their 3 day juice detox a go. I had an extensive look on their website and took the plunge and here I am telling all. I'm going to come clean straight away, a detox isn't for me. I have horrific stomach problems and a myriad of different problems stopped me completing the detox but I am here to tell you how lovely the juices and the company is. Juci Wellbeing provide fresh cold pressed detox juices which provides you with 30% more nutrients and minerals than your average juicer. They offer free delivery on a Tuesday and the juices must be refrigerated immediately, showing just how fresh they are. You start the cleanse on the Tuesday or Wednesday and boom, fresh as a daisy. Juices 1 and 4 are both Juci Boost, a juice made of cucumber, celery, broccoli and lemon which was probably my least favourite of the bunch. Juice 2 was Juci Shine, made with carrot, apple and ginger, this baby was absolutely dreamy, I could drink it all day.It gave me the energy I was craving and I was happy after drinking it. Juice 3 was Juci Lift, a beetroot based juice, was pretty satisfying and strangely good, and that's coming from a beetroot hater! If you are looking for a detox, I would recommend Juci Wellbeing. They are extremely professional every step of the way and the product is absolutely fantastic.
