Insta - Lately no. 3

Welcome to my 3rd Insta - Lately post and back to the mundane working week. However, I am still uploading beautiful pictures of my Lake District getaway, just to keep the holiday blues at bay.

Makeup Medley #3

It's been a while since I posted about what makeup products I have been loving recently, and with the weather being so up and down at the minute I thought it would be the perfect time to introduce another Makeup Medley.

The Lake District Diaries - Part 1

I am so excited to write this, I think me and travel writing have a sort of, infinity? Eh. I don't know. Anyway, I will be writing this diary in 3 parts, just because I don't want to bore you with reams and reams of text in one go. So, as you are probably already aware, I had been looking forward to this getaway for quite some time. It was definitely something different for us as we were going totally self-catering and actually renting a whole cottage, not just a room in a hotel.

The Weekly Edit #8

Why is it a week off on holiday goes by doubly quick than any normal week? How is that even fair? I think by this statement you can be assured that I had the nicest week off last week. We were truly blessed with the weather, and where we stayed was absolutely perfect. Anyway, enough of the gushing as I will be writing some diary style blog posts this week about our time in the Lake District.

Insta - Lately no. 2

Welcome to my 2nd Insta - Lately post. Ideally I want this to go live on Saturdays, but this week my posts have been a bit erratic because I've been on holiday (apologies in advance for all the holiday snaps) Fingers crossed for a more settled blog week, next week.

Review: Too Faced Hangover Primer

So, I finally took the plunge and purchased the Too Faced Hangover Primer. Yes, that's right, I gave in and splashed the cash a little. I was completely out of my Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser (which I repurchased as well) and I thought what kind of beauty blogger would I be if I didn't own anything by Too Faced.

The Weekly Edit #7

I hate the fact I am behind on all my blog posts, so I apologise that this post wasn't up sooner. I'm on holiday this week so I am hoping I will get a chance to write a bit more.

Insta - Lately no.1

I'm really busting out all the feature posts, aren't I? I just thought I would do a quick round up of my Instagram snaps from the week. Possibly a new feature to Flourish & Blotting, I don't know yet. At this rate I will be posting everyday!

Bloggers & Vloggers Who Inspire Me

I have been wanting to write a post like this in forever, more as a way of documenting my blogging journey than anything else. Admittedly, I haven't been in the blogging sphere for very long, but these people have had a major influence on it so far.

The Weekly Edit #6

This week has been a bit of a slow one. It's always the way before you go on holiday, isn't it? Starting next week, I was actually thinking of starting to vlog this particular feature. I am not sure a video of my weekly shenanigans would be that interesting though. Watch this space.

Recipe: Classically Delicious Victoria Sponge

I realised this weekend that I haven't uploaded a recipe in like, forever, and a lot can be said for an amazingly baked Victoria Sponge. I mean, it is the prominent feature of all traditional afternoon tea's across the world! And I have come up with a fail safe recipe for the most perfect one.

Wishlist: Beauty Products for Spring 2016

I thought I hadn't done a Lust List in a while. In fact, I think one is long overdue. There is a ton of stuff I have been wanting recently, so I thought I would split it up over a few posts. The products below are all the beauty bits I have been drooling over, and hope to someday get my manicured mitts on.

About Being 30

So, as I am sure you already know, I am probably a little bit older than your average beauty blogger. But hopefully, thanks to a proper night (and day!) skincare routine, it's not too obvious. Anyway, I just thought I would write a kind of 'life post' on what you might expect once you reach the oh so glorious age of 3-0..

The Weekly Edit #5

Another week, and another weekly edit. We seem to be flying through the weeks at the minute. I'm hoping everyone is enjoying reading these! I haven't heard otherwise, so I guess I will carry on.

My March 2016 Favourites

So, I have been loving quite a few things this month, and having to pick just a few things is definitely a bit tricky. It still feels like only yesterday I was writing my February favourites.
