Hello Lovelies!

It's that odd time of year again where the retail world seems to have decided that it's close enough to Christmas to send all the novelty merchandise our way. Now don't get me wrong I love Christmas, but can we please let Halloween have its day first?

Lifestyle | A Little Book Haul


Hello Lovelies!

A lot of things have changed since I've started my first job. For one I've become intensely aware of how many hours I waste commuting. When I was at university these hours would usually be spent revising Korean and Japanese, but post degree I've found myself needing to fill these hours with something because commuting can be so boring.

Lifestyle | The Struggles of Juggling Blogging and Work


Hello Lovelies! 

I'm writing this post after a rare productive day of taking blog photos for the week (mostly because I'm absolutely terrified of those shorter days and no good light) and it's got me thinking. Juggling blogging and work is a right struggle, and honestly I'm finding it so hard to keep up with it all.

Hello Lovelies! 

Last week I only managed 3/7 days of my posting every day challenge (the first three that is) so perhaps I've learnt that when you have a full time job it's perhaps best to just take it easy. In all honesty I had a bit of a bad end to my week, but it was all saved by a lovely weekend including seeing one of my favourite performers, G-dragon. His concert actually put a lot into perspective and I'm feeling very fresh and motivated to create some fun and engaging posts for you all (if you have no idea who he is, he is a very creative and quirky man). Just google him ok?

Lush | Marmalade Jelly Bomb


Hello Lovelies!

To jelly bomb, or not to jelly bomb that is the question! After first trying The Big Sleep Jelly bomb I've been wondering whether the jelly aspect is really worth it or is just a bit of a fad. So here's what I thought of the Marmalade Jelly bomb (£4.95) and whether or not I've started to go a bit wobbly on this whole jelly concept.

Hello Lovelies!

Oh my god. Saturday was amazing *breathes*. Let's just say I went peak Hello Kitty fangirl and I'm not even sorry.

Hello Lovelies!

Last week was a complete and utter write off. I'd been feeling ill for about two weeks so I spent most of it in bed after work completely exhausted. However this week since I'm feeling a whole lot better I've challenged myself to post every day. No promises I'll manage it, but it's definitely worth a try!

Lifestyle | How To Survive The Colder Months


Hello Lovelies! 

Autumn means a lot of excitement over fluffy jumpers, crunchy leaves and cosy nights in but for a lot of us it can be a really hard time. Don't get me wrong I LOVE AUTUMN but the days are shorter, colder and it can be hard to keep those energy levels up. So I've written a post with a whole range of tips on how I personally survive those colder months.

Beauty | Recent Beauty Buys Haul


Hello Lovelies! 

You know that feeling when your skin is a mess, you feel super meh and you just need a pick me up? That was me a couple of weeks ago when I completely splurged on all the beauty bits with a side helping of chocolate and fashion magazines. It's unlike me because I'm a bit of an anxious spender (except when it comes to overpriced coffee) so I thought I'd share this rare beauty haul with you all!

Lush | Cheer Up Buttercup Bath Bomb

Amongst Lush's new exciting release - the jelly bombs, it's easy to get lost. But Lush's Cheer Up Buttercup Bath Bomb £2.95 still stands out with its chirpy name and sunny exterior. With a simple design, it's reminiscent of Lush classics Avobath and Blackberry, that look simple but have scents that pack a punch.

For three years I have been blogging, pretty much every single week, creating new content and taking who knows how many photos.

Blogging has been really life changing for me, and I've definitely not lost the passion.

Hello Lovelies!

Recently I've been pinning like a mad woman, and my latest obsession is colour dedicated boards on Pinterest. I love the way in which colour can so easily make us feel things, and yellow is a colour that I've really fallen for. It's bright and happy, bold and unapologetic and so I decided to go all yellow this week with just a touch of red. Picks are from Unique and Unity, Ohh Deer, Debenhams and Amara.

Hello Lovelies!

Korean beauty is making its waves through the beauty industry - and it doesn't surprise me one little bit. If you've been lucky enough to ever visit South Korea, you will know that the beauty scene is completely ahead of its time. Think pretty packaging, amazing skincare, novelty items and iconic Korean brands like Etude House and you'll get why there is so much hype.

Hello Lovelies!

Somewhere along the line when I was struggling to think of blog post ideas, I thought why not write about novelty tea bags? And so here we are today talking about these A-dorable tea bags that I shipped all the way from France. Yes, I know someone needs to take my money away from me.

But to be fair they are super cute, so can you blame me?

Hello Lovelies!

Usually I take a lot of my inspiration from the seasons, with cute pastel palettes for Spring, tropical touches for Summer and cosy blankets for Winter. But this past week... well it's been very rainy and also humid. London has been like an awol rainforest, and hasn't felt like Summer or even Winter. So I've taken inspiration from the rain and gone VERY blue this week. Enjoy!

It's been a while since there's been a Lush review around these parts, but have no fear you will be seeing quite a few over the next few weeks. Those who saw my latest Lush haul video will know that Lush has discontinued a few products *sad face* including two of my faves: Frozen Bath Bomb and Fizzbanger. However that means that they've also released some exciting new products...

All of the products are actually from one site this week: Red Candy, who have the brilliant slogan: shut up, beige! That tells you all you need to know...

Lifestyle | The Start of A New Chapter...

Hello Lovelies!

This weekend I have found myself very much in the company of my own thoughts. I am the queen of over-thinkers anyway, but extremely dodgy internet connection, long country walks with Flossie and the absence of my boyfriend who’s away on a mini break have left me in a deep thought quarantine.

Life at the moment feels very much like one chapter has closed, and another has begun. After finishing my exams, I quickly got an internship in social media that has now been turned into a permanent job as a Marketing Assistant. My anxieties about getting a job, and more importantly fitting in at that job have suddenly flown out of the window and the pages of my life are turning over effortlessly. I will also graduate this Friday with a 2:1, and leave education for the first time in almost all my life behind me.

Fashion | Finding The Statement Ankle Boots Of Dreams


Hello Lovelies!

When it comes to fashion I am exceptionally picky, and when it comes to shoes I'm a whole other level of picky. I'm like Goldilocks - my shoes have to be just right or there's no way they're for me. Now, my latest love has been ankle boots. I cannot for the life of me stop buying them even though it's Summer and it's JUST TOO HOT. 

What I've noticed is that I only seem to buy my shoes from one place these days, and that's Topshop. The main reason is that I get blisters so easily, and if I get shoes that are even vaguely uncomfortable it's like a foot massacre. Topshop shoes however have never had any problems with my wide feet, so I can definitely vouch for their comfiness.


The pair on the right are my absolute favourite boots at the moment, and gosh I am so sad they are starting to fall apart. What I love about this pair of shoes is that 1) they are elastic (so no silly zips), 2) THAT STUD DETAIL THO and 3) The heel is the perfect height, not too high, not too short. Honestly I don't know if you can relate but isn't it the worst when you start to realise you'll need to get rid of your favourite pair of shoes? Definitely think I'm still in denial... 

The beautiful embroidered boots of dreams on the left are beautiful, but not so practical. To be honest I love them but I hardly wear them because I'm so scared they'll get ruined. That said they are the perfect shoes to make a casual outfit pop. When I first bought these shoes a girl chased after to me to ask where they were from so you can tell, they're really nice boots. My only issue with them is the zip at the back which never wants to close - so annoying!

Also, shoot me but I'm kind of over every shoe I see being embroidered. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE ALL THE EMBROIDERY, but is anyone else bored? 


The pair on the left I saw in my lunch break in a Topshop advert, and I KNEW I needed them in my life. They're basically the taupe, rose gold heart boots of dreams that are also totally impractical. Probably should have got the black version because adult life decisions, but they were just too pretty to say no to. 

My other pair were a complete sale steal at only £15.00! I'd actually seen these boots before and been a bit unsure but there was no way I couldn't get them for that price. I love that they're a bit different. They're pink but more of a salmon than a super girly pink, and I love the cute little floral details. 

Oh and Topshop seemed to like my snaps of these two pairs, so there's that! Wish Topshop credited their pictures but hey ho that's big brands for you. *They did ask for permission to use the photos though!


Basically as you can tell I really love Topshop shoes. They're comfy and a bit different, so I can't recommend them enough.

Have a great weekend lovelies! Love Vicky x

Lifestyle | Why I Love Pride


Hello Lovelies! Years and years ago when I was in primary school I remember two of the boys in school coming over to me and my friends. One of them asked me, "are you gay?" to which I replied no, and they started chuckling and saying but "gay means loving men, so you like girls." Of course this was your standard 'banter' in which being gay was a throwaway insult. I don't think it was until years after that, that I really understood properly what being gay was. Being gay was just one of those things that people didn't talk about.

Lifestyle | How I Deal With Being Tired All The Time


Hello Lovelies! Through my late teens right up to now when I've just ventured into my twenties, tiredness had always been a really big problem for me. The reason why is in short, my iron deficiency. Tiredness is a really frustrating thing to deal with, especially when you're juggling a relationship, a blog, an internship and Love Island (sorry I'm addicted too!). Sometimes you can feel super frustrated with yourself especially if you're bagging those hours of sleep you need, but tiredness is one of those things that we all deal with. So I thought I'd write a post all about feeling all ZZZ and how I deal with it.

Fashion | Paperself's Petals Temporary Tattoos


Hello Lovelies! When I think of temporary tattoos, it conjures up an image of childish rebellion. You know the kind where you think you're being really controversial by wearing tattoos, and your parents totally wouldn't approve when in reality they are actually the ones that bought them for you in the first place. And to be honest they were always pretty boring (even if they didn't seem so at the time). In reality you were just pasting Barbie on to your wrist half the time.

Lifestyle | The Truth Behind My Instagram Photos


Hello Lovelies! Ok I know this title sounds super dramatic, but this post is just a little bit of fun looking at the reality of my Instagram posts. Something you realise as a blogger is that there is a lot of fakery behind Instagram, and not even necessarily in a bad way. It's more meticulously planned themes, photos and selfies that took 100 takes. To be honest, I'm sure a lot of people don't realise that too so that's why I'm doing this post because you know my life is really not quite as pretty as my Instagram feed... Also p.s I saw this first on Grace's blog so all credit to her for the idea (and do go read her post!).
