My Top 4 Moisturisers

When it comes to moisturisers, I'm quite the picky one. I'm forever striving to get the perfect concoction which makes my skin feel silky smooth and leaves me feeling slightly pampered as a result. I cannot (like most) stand dry hands and find that, especially in the winter, my hands (and face for that matter) get so dry from the cold weather and cool air. So, this year I finally came to my senses and made an extra effort to get my act together, give my hands some love and purchase a tube that I could carry around with me in my handbag/school bag.

Mini Lemon Sponges

I've been wanting to write a baking blog post for ages, so today I thought I'd give it a go and what better place to start than with these cute little lemon sponges. The recipe is pretty simple, and produces wonderfully lushes light cakes, so I'll do my best to take you through it step by step and make sure to check out the photos below the method for clarification! Enjoy!

Tanya Burr: Nail polish review

(Tanya Burr nail polish in the colour 'Mini Marshmallows', 12ml)

As soon as I heard that YouTuber and beauty, fashion and lifestyle blogger Tanya Burr (one of my favourites ever) was going to release a line of nail polishes and lip glosses, I couldn't wait to get my hands on them and give them a whirl. On the day they came out I rushed online to feelunique to get choosing a product. In the end I went for the oh-so-gorgeous nail polish range, settling on the pink one of the bunch named 'Mini Marshmallows' (completely adorable or what!), priced at only £5.99 each! (pictured above). Due to the overwhelming popularity of the products, I had to wait around a week until I had it.

Creating my blog

'I want to start a blog'. I've been thinking this very thought for little over two months now and decided yesterday that today would be the day I would enter the blogging world. I couldn't wait to get started and present my views and recipes to the world! But little did I realise just how hard creating the perfect blog I had pictured in my head would be. The templates were there, all I had to do was choose the colour scheme, add some info about me and generally make it look pretty and appealing. I mean, how hard could it be? How wrong I was.
