An Autumn Wishlist

I really enjoy putting together wishlist-style posts so I thought I would sit down and have a look at some websites and see what catches my eye and put together an autumn wishlist. I've made sure to include an array of different things from clothing, skincare, makeup, body care and homeware.

Fashion can be fleeting or permanent. But you must know how to understand your body type to buy assertive pieces. Also, it's important to identify what your personal style is. Investing in body shaping dresses can be an interesting option for different women, as they are timeless pieces that go beyond trends. Also, shapewear can come in many designs. They are highly adaptable so you can include use in your day-to-day life and also combine with pieces you already have in your closet.

If you’re a regular reader of my blog then I’m sure by now you’re aware that I like putting together a wishlist post but I thought that I would do something a little different this week and do an Etsy Wishlist. I try and shop at Etsy fairly often whether it’s for myself or if I’m looking for a gift for someone as I find that you can get quite unique things on there and it’s obviously important to try and support small businesses where possible too. So in today’s post, I want to share what’s currently on my ‘Etsy Wishlist’ as there are a couple of things that are gift ideas but most are things that I like the look of for myself and my home. 


I’m back again with another wishlist post and this time I’ve put together a summer wishlist that includes an array of clothes and beauty products that I’ve got my eyes on for the summer. I've had yet another big declutter recently so I know what I want/need in my wardrobe for the summer and also what new makeup I want to try.

It only seems like 5 minutes ago when I was putting together my last Father’s Day Gift Guide but I’m back again with some gift ideas if you’re stuck on what to get your dad or the father figure in your life this Father’s Day.

I wanted to talk about some affordable changes that you can make to become more environmentally friendly. I definitely think people should be thinking more about the planet and the changes that they can make in their day-to-day lives. I think if everybody makes an effort to make some changes in their life, it will hopefully it’ll have a positive impact on the planet. I’ve made sure to cover a variety of things from cutting back on waste, beauty product switches you can make, a couple of sustainable period product recommendations, how to get a new wardrobe of clothes for free and more.

Mother's Day lands on the 19th of March this year in the UK so I thought now is the perfect time to post my annual Mother’s Day Gift Guide. I’ve picked out some beauty, lifestyle and home bits which I think would make lovely gifts for your mum or any mother figure in your life.

I'm back again with another wishlist and as always, I've put together a list of different things from beauty, fashion, homeware and even a few fitness and health-related things as I'm planning to go on a bit of a health kick which I'll talk more about later in the post.

It’s that time of the year again and I’m back with my annual Christmas gift guides! In this gift guide, I’m going to be sharing some main gift ideas and I’ve got a mixture of beauty, homeware, tech, and cosy clothing as well as a couple of practical gift ideas too.

Fast fashion is a relatively new phenomenon in the fashion industry that focuses on rapidly producing high volumes of low-quality fashion, as cheaply as possible. It is causing serious damage to the planet, exploits workers and can potentially harm the health of those who wear it. 


Fortunately, the sustainable alternative is slow fashion, which takes into consideration all aspects of the supply chain and in doing so, aims to respect workers, the environment, and animals. Slow fashion retailers will often use linen, organic cotton, or tencel to create sturdy, high-quality pieces that last and are gentle enough to keep the environmental impact low.


But slow fashion boasts more than just sustainability and to support this, here are 6 reasons why slow fashion is so important today:

It’s been a while since I did a favourites post, so I thought it would be the perfect time to talk about what I’ve been loving recently and by recently I mean any time between my last favourites post back in April to now lol. I’ve got skincare, hair care, makeup and even a new fave chocolate brand to talk about, some have been favourites for literally months now and some are pretty new discoveries.

I thought I’d do a favourites round-up kind of post as I haven’t done one in a long time. I’ve tried to include a mixture of things from home/lifestyle, fashion and beauty as I know my blog is quite beauty-heavy again at the moment but it’s because I’m still playing catch up on my beauty reviews. I do have plans for more of a variety of content which should be coming soon which I'm really looking forward to getting started on.

I’m back with another Mother’s Day gift guide and this one contains an array of different gift ideas from beauty, lifestyle, home and fashion. So hopefully it will give you some ideas on what to buy your mum or the mother figure in your life for Mother’s Day this year. I also have another gift guide that’s already up which is a lot more beauty-focused with a few lifestyle gifts thrown in too. You can check out that blog post here if you’re interested. 

 
It's been a bit quiet around here lately, hasn't it? Having over a month's break from my blog and Instagram wasn't the plan at all but I've been dealing with some new health issues since the end of last year on top of my existing ones and I'm currently waiting for some blood test results and then I've also been ill with potentially COVID (the lateral flow was positive but PCR was negative so idk). But if it wasn't COVID then I really don't know what it is was but all I know is that I've never felt so unwell with a migraine before and then I also developed sinusitis and an ear infection and I was put on antibiotics that made me feel like I was on a completely different planet. FUN. But I'm back now, well, that's the plan anyway but we'll see how I go. I thought I'd start off with a Spring Wishlist as I haven't done a wishlist in ages and it's kind of fun to do because it basically means online window shopping and then writing a blog post all about it haha. So here's what I've currently got my eyes on...

If you’re still looking for some Christmas gifts which you can pick up easily both online and in-store at places such as your local supermarket and Next then I’d highly recommend Baylis & Harding. There isn’t a year that goes by when I don’t buy at least a couple of gifts from Baylis & Harding for loved ones at Christmas. They are cruelty-free and vegan-friendly and they have gifts for all ages including bath and shower gifts, luxury slipper gift sets, candle gift sets and more. They recently kindly sent over some of their lovely gifts from this year’s Christmas range for me to talk about on my blog.

I can’t believe I’m sitting here writing my first Christmas gift guide of 2021. I feel like I say this every year but how is it almost December?! My first gift guide is going to be about main gift and stocking filler ideas and I feel like there’s a decent mixture of things in this blog post if you’re stuck for ideas.
