My Personal Experience with Anxiety and Panic Attacks

This blog post has been a long time in the making and when I say that, I mean I've literally wanted to write this post since the day I started my blog three years ago but couldn't find a way to gather my thoughts and reign them in enough to be able to form coherent sentences. This post is going to be very raw, real, and from the heart and also a bit rambly. On another note, if you're not in a stable enough position or you feel you're not strong enough mentally to read this and feel it may trigger an attack, I send all of my love and support and I understand wholeheartedly if you need to click away.

Rimmel London x Influenster VoxBox | Lasting Finish Foundation and Concealer

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Influenster VoxBox Review
Hello my lovelies, today I want to share with you all the very first Influenster VoxBox I received full of Rimmel London goodies to test and review. I was actually away in Surrey visiting my momma bear-in-law and having the time of my life at The Making of Harry Potter when I got the email telling me I was going to be receiving my first ever box, my day honestly couldn't have gotten any better, and I was super excited to see what was waiting inside when I got home!

The Lasting Finish Foundation and Concealer both claim to be a lightweight and breathable formula with SPF whilst still giving a buildable light-medium coverage. This foundation comes at the perfect time for me, as my skin seems have finally gotten the memo that I'm no longer a teenager and my acne has officially cleared up completely, leaving me with super soft and clear skin albeit with a few scars and discolourations. Obviously, this duo won't be everyone's cup of tea (or coffee) as they are pretty sheer and natural looking but after only a couple of times of wearing it, I'm totally loving it!

This foundation comes in thirteen shades which isn't bad but it also isn't that great either. Hopefully, Rimmel brings out some much needed darker shades in the near future.

10 Reasons Why I Love Autumn

Hello lovelies, it's been a while since I've written a blog post and I apologise for that. I feel like I have to apologise at the start of every blog post because they're so far and few between and for that I'm sorry. I really should find a schedule that works for me and my blog and stick to that but sometimes life just gets in the way, ya know?

Anyway,  how exciting is it that we're now in October? I'm a little shocked at how quickly this year has flown by. Soon it will be time to wrap up warm in cosy knitted jumpers, bobble hats and chunky scarves and carve out of pumpkins ready for Halloween but in the meantime, while I eagerly await the crisp weather, here are 10 reasons why I love Autumn.

Meet My September Advertisers!

Right off the bat, I want to apologise for not getting this out on the 1st Sept like it was supposed to be. My fiance and I had a bit of bad news that has taken a little while to sink in and get our heads around and we also just celebrated his birthday yesterday so I wasn't able to hop on the computer and get this out like it should have been.

On another note, wow it's September already and Autumn is literally just around the corner. I can't tell you how excited I am for the leaves to start changing their colour and for the chilly weather to roll in so I dig out my favourite jumpers, boots, scarves and my awesome leather jacket. Not to mention... Pumpkin spiced lattes, hell yeah!

Anyway we have yet another wonderful advertiser this month so...

Say hello to my September advertiser, Harry Lee from HarryLeeWrites!
HarryLee is an adventurous British lifestyle, opinion, and Disney blogger over on as well as a keen social media geek (like me)! 


There's still time if you want to advertise with me for the month of September, just pop over to my Advertise With Me page and check out all of the packages I have to offer starting from just £1! Alternatively, if you want to work with me you can email me at

My Thoughts on the Shadowhunters Season 2 Finale

Shadowhunters Season 2 Recap
If you haven't watched the season 2 finale of Shadowhunters then I highly suggest you stop reading this post right now and go and watch it ASAP so you can be equally as lost about what to do with your life now season 2 is over. I also apologise in advance if this post is a bit rambly and all over the place, I just have so many thoughts and feelings.

You're back! Did you watch it? Good! (If you haven't then please stop reading because this post contains spoilers and I don't want to be that person who spoils an awesome tv show for someone). Come back when you're ready or you know... Continue reading and spoil it for yourself. Don't say I didn't warn you!

I Hate Waiting for Packages to be Delivered...

We all know the struggle of waiting in all day for a package to be delivered, only for it to finally turn up at quarter to five in the evening. Right? Mr Postie seems to take an eternity to turn up on your doorstep with a box you've so patiently waited all day for, the contents of which you've probably already forgotten about because if you're not unlucky enough to have Amazon Prime it feels like you ordered it years ago and now you have to wait even longer to find out what you ordered...

Say Hello To My August Advertisers!

Meet my August advertiser/sponsor
I can't believe it's August already, although you wouldn't think it where I live as it's currently chucking it down. Seriously though, where has this year gone? I'm not complaining though, you know why? Because it means Autumn and Halloween are right around the corner and I'm super excited to dig out all of my cosy jumpers, boots, and beanies and grab a pumpkin spiced latte!

Anyway, you're not here to read about how excited I am to carve a pumpkin and scare myself half to death with a horror movie, you're here to meet my August Advertiser. Right? Well, I hope so!
