Monday was the first day of Spring and the clocks went forward today, so it finally feels like Winter and those dark evenings may be over and done with. And, well, to be honest, it couldn’t come quick enough. With Spring finally here, I’ve been updating my wardrobe, digging out the blush toned lipsticks and on the look out for a new fragrance. So with that in mind, I recently picked up Yves Saint Laurent’s Mon Paris Eau de Parfum. Released mid last year by the French designer, it looks beautiful. But, more importantly, does it smell just as gorgeous? Will it last through those long Summer evenings?
Well, here are my thoughts;
Another month almost done and another month where I’ve read some awesome blog posts. So, as usual, here are ten blog posts that I really loved reading over the last 30 or so days!

I’ve started, once per week, putting an inspirational quote in my diary. Normally nabbed from Instagram or twitter and decorated with all sorts of doodles. A few days ago, I came across this one. Aside from adding it to my diary, I thought it would be a great idea to share the little things that have made me happy over the last month or so. After all, with the events that have happened in the city this week, it’s important to remember the little things in life…
If you can’t treat yourself on your birthday, when can you? (Or in my case, if you can’t treat yourself a week before so it arrives and you can try it out on you birthday..) Anyhow, this was my logic when I accidentally ended up buying myself a few Jeffree Star goodies from Beauty Bay. With the drama surrounding both Jeffree and his products, I’d held off buying for quite some time. But after hearing so many great things (and spotting Beauty Bay had 30% off some lines) I decided to bite the bullet and try it for myself.
Since this was my first time using anything by the, albeit slightly controversial, brand I thought I’d write about my first impressions.
At the end of February, the team at Generator invited myself, along with a selection of other bloggers, to stay at their London branch and celebrate National Public Sleeping Day. Confession time – when I heard the word “hostel”, I used to have a very snobby perception of what staying at one would involve. A grubby dorm with very little personal space, while having to keep an eagle eye on my belongings. This however all changed last week when I visited the Generator Hostel on Tavistock Place, London. (Spoiler alert: It’s gorgeous, modern and super friendly. The complete opposite of my original thoughts on what a hostel would be like.) After looking at the swoon worthy photo on their website I snapped up their invitation.
So here’s how my first ever hostel stay went;
This week was full of highs and lows. Moments I could scream at someone and moments I was so overjoyed I could cry. And of course, lots of lipstick. But enough about that, here’s my week in lipsticks.. View Post
