M&S Beauty Advent Calendar Launch – Plus A Sneak Peek || Beauty

For the last few years, I’ve been tempted to invest in a beauty advent calendar. However, by the time December rolled around the ones I’d being eyeing up had either sold out or with buying gifts worked out too much of an expensive treat. (I mean, I love Charlotte Tilbury but I can not for the life of me justify £150 for twelve days of Christmas.) So safe to say, I was over the moon when M&S invited me to the launch of their Beauty Advent Calendar. Even better when I found out it would involve making a gingerbread house at the swoon-worthy Biscuiteers store. So, here’s a little sneak peak at the launch and what you can expect to find inside….

Tale As Old As Time Afternoon Tea ft PANDORA x Disney || #DoSeeTheMagic

As I mentioned in my 5 Happy Things post, one of my highlights for the month was attending the launch night of the Disney x Pandora launch which involved seeing the incredible projection near the London Eye before heading to the store for the launch party.  So imagine my delight when a selection of us were invited to attend an evening tea at Town House at The Kensington a few weeks later. But not just any tea, the Tale As Old As Time Tea themed around Disney’s The Beauty And The Beast.

5 Happy Things – #14 – October || Life Lately

Oopsy, so this 5 Happy Things is a little late. So, errm, sorry about that. It’s not at all like me to put off writing any of my monthly posts, mostly as they’re pretty theoretic to write in all honesty. But this has been sitting half written in my drafts for far too long so I thought I best get it published (and then start on looking back on November in better time!). I guess partly as I’d spent a large chunk of October feeling under the weather…

So without further ado, here’s a little bit of a delayed list of 5 things that made me happy in October.

10 Things About Living In London That Stress Me Out || London

Today has been, safe to say, one of those days. My plan for an early start at the office turned into rocking up late due to signal failure. I ran out of data on my phone with 10 days to go until it refreshes. I had barely any sleep due to some, errm amorous foxes in my garden. And, I dread to look at my pending transactions after a little too much food and drink this weekend. On that note – to vent my current frustrations I thought I’d share 10 things about living in London that leave my hair falling out with stress. View Post

Hometown Tourist #3 – Cheese, Catch-ups & Camden || London

I swear, the last “Hometown Tourist” post I did will have had pretty much the same introduction. At the time I wrote the first one I was regularly heading out with friends, mostly from outside of London and thought it would be a great chance to write about our touristy adventures. However, circumstances change and other than a few fleeting visits – I’ve hardly had a chance to see said friends. Even if we do text every day. So on that note when Sophie asked if I fancied heading down to spend a Saturday afternoon being tourists in Camden – well aside from looking forward to the catch up, I thought what a great way to restart this series I really do love to write. On that note, here’s what we got up to on our touristy day of Cheese, Catch-ups and Camden…
