The Weekly Edit #13

Welcome to the Weekly Edition #13! Honestly, it has been a quite a boring week this week, and I am really looking forward to a bit of excitement in the next few months.

Insta - Lately No. 7

Welcome to Insta - Lately no. 7! Gosh! These weeks are just flying by. Looking back on my previous week in pictures, my pre-holiday diet is going really well, right? Anywho, on to the snaps..

Bedroom Interiors

I have been itching to do a post like this for ages, but it has taken me this long to get our bedroom to near enough how I like it. I am planning to do a few more of these posts as I get a bit more confident. Basically a blog tour of my house, how does that sound? Just a forewarning; this post is going to be quite picture heavy.

Recipe: Chocolate Malt Cake

I have been a bit of a baking machine recently, although I have had a couple of disasters too. I have been absolutely loving whipping up new creations with the help of my KitchenAid, and this chocolate malt cake is absolute heaven. I recently made it for a colleagues birthday, and I think it was fair to say it went down a treat.

Reviewed: MAC False Lashes Extreme Black Mascara

I am going to try and post more beauty reviews, possibly on a more weekly basis. If you are a brand wanting to work with me, all my contact details can be found here. This week I am writing about MAC's False Lashes Extreme Black Mascara.

The Weekly Edition #12

This would be the 12th Weekly Edit and another exciting week in my world.. (insert dramatic pause) This week I learnt I had an acquired squint in one of my eyes. Weird, huh? As much as it bothers me and how it may affect my future vision, it just gives me an excuse to buy new glasses. Bright side, right?

Insta - Lately No. 6

Welcome to Insta - Lately no. 6. I was just saying to James how fast I thought May had gone, it has literally flown by. Scary eh? This week has been a bit of a nothing week really.  However! I am off into town today to get my passport renewed, and to possible do a little bit of shopping? I think I deserve a treat, or two. I did actually hear something about a Nyx counter opening in Liverpool..

Blog Tips: My Top 5 Blogger Tools

Not long ago I wrote a feature on starting a blog and I intended it to be part of a small series of posts on starting/maintaining a blog.  Whats on my iPhone 6s is another very handy post I wrote, and kind of ties in with this one.

The Lake District Diaries - Part 3

I have finally gotten around to writing my third, and final Lake District Diaries. If you haven't already read my other two, they can be found here and here. This final instalment covers days 5, 6 and our leaving day. To say I was sorry to leave would be an absolute understatement. We were so lucky with the weather, and had the most amazing time.

The Weekly Edition #11

Welcome to the 11th Weekly Edit! This week has been quite a busy one for me as I attended a blogger event on Thursday and then I had a to do list as long as my arm for this weekend. Joy!

Insta - Lately No. 5

I am thinking I really need to be more organised with my blog posts. Apologies again that this should have been up yesterday. I think I need like, a week off, just to catch up on 'blogmin'. Hmm, maybe that's what I will do. Anyway, better late than never they always say! So, onto my week in pictures.

Wishlist: All Things Disney

As you may, or may not know, I am probably your biggest closet Disney fan going. I say closet because, you know, when you reach 30, have a house, and a non-Disney boyfriend it's kind of unacceptable to sleep with a cuddly Pluto anymore.. Or at least harder to hide.

The Weekly Edit #10

I can't believe I am on my 10th Weekly Edit already! I have had a pretty busy week, life wise. This weekend I managed to do some interior decorating, and paint the garden furniture. It was also nice enough to do a bit of weeding and finally take some photos of our tulips.

Insta - Lately no. 4

So, I'm a bit late getting this post out. What can I say? The weekends just aren't long enough. Fact. Yesterday I was decorating and doing the garden, which actually equated to covering myself with paint and squealing every time I saw a worm. Believe me, I would have rather been working on Flourish & Blotting, but I sometimes have to do 'adult' stuff too.

April's Lipstick Pick

I have found this month quite a tricky one for lips. Even though it is 'Spring' I am still wearing quite vibrant red/berry tones. Well, let's face it, it doesn't feel like Spring with all the cray cray weather we have been getting. I mean, did you see the size of those hailstones?

My April 2016 Favourites

I'd be lying to you if I didn't think April had dragged slightly. It feels like ages ago I was writing my March favourites. April has been an ok month; we went away; I got my Macbook Air; I was invited to my 2nd blogging event (Which I am so excited for); and I went for a promotion at work - my fingers are permanently crossed for the next 2 weeks.

The Lake District Diaries - Part 2

 Welcome to days 2, 3 & 4 of my Lake District Diaries! Like I said in my previous post I think breaking it down into only a couple of days at a time makes everything a bit more manageable. I can post more pictures and there isn't massive, and unreadable, blocks of text.

The Weekly Edit #9

I think this is going to be a pretty boring weekly edit, unfortunately not much has happened. The week after a holiday is always the hardest, right? I think the highlight of my week had to be giving the house a good ol' spring clean. Watch out Ebay!

The Liebster Award

Firstly, I would like to thank the lovely Fern from Roses for a Sunday for nominating me. I was absolutely delighted that she thought of Flourish & Blotting when nominating. Any platform that highlights new bloggers gets a definite yes from me. As you may, or may not know, it is so hard to become established in an already very established blogosphere.
