Sometimes All You Need Is A Little Splash Of Colour

I'm a big fan of finding outfits that are a bit different to what people normally wear, I love to be individual. So what better way to be individual than wearing my all time favourite colour, pink? I took a shopping trip into Leicester with my mum after I had finished my GCSEs and she persuaded me to buy this outfit from Dorothy Perkins, I'm glad I did, I love it. 

Get Those Billion Dollar Brows With This One Product **

Good brows are essential to looking amazing, let's all be honest here. Everyone has different shaped brows, some people have even shaved them so they can sculpt their own, whatever style eyebrows you have, every girl needs a brilliant eyebrow product. And this is where my tip to getting billion dollar brows comes in.

Why A Smile Can Change Your Life

Smiling. We all do it at some point in the day, whether its laughing with friends, smiling about going home after work or fangirling over your favourite band. I'm sure you've all seen the fact that it takes less muscles to smile than to frown. But what difference does a smile actually make? Nobody really notices, do they? Smiling is just an ordinary thing and it's nothing special. But what if it is? What if I told you that smiling makes a massive difference to your life?

BUXOM Lash Mascara Review

I have been following BUXOM on Instagram since before they had any stands in any stores and so was super excited for when they came to Leicester. The other day I decided to pay a visit to their stall in our Debenhams, I only had £20 because I'm broke, sad times, so I had to get my friends to hold me back from buying any more.

Embroidery Is Everything

When I went shopping a little while ago I decided to go a bit out of my comfort zone and try on some things that I wouldn't usually buy. It turns out that I actually loved some of the things I tried on, included a few pieces that were embroidered. Since then, I've been all over this embroidery trend. I think it adds something to an outfit, especially if the design is a gorgeous design.

Q&A: Club Drive's Latest Single - 'International'

A little while ago, I had the opportunity to chat to British pop band, Club Drive. Since the interview the lads have been bringing out some new music and hitting the festival stages, their latest single, International, has been gathering quite a bit of attention.

Interview With FØNX

FØNX is a new and upcoming artist that I'm sure you'll be hearing more of in the next few months. His pop-R'n'B style is sure to get you nodding your head when his songs are playing. His latest single, Can't Get Enough, is a banger, with it's electronic sound, the guitars and beat are bound to get you hooked from the moment the song begins.

Noughty but Nice**

I was in Superdrug the other day and I couldn't help but notice a new brand that had found its way into their shelves in the haircare isle. I'm one for trying out new brands, especially when it comes to my hair, I'm always looking to try new treatments because my hair is in a right state - it's a dry ball of frizz half of the time. Noughty caught my eyes and so I had to email them about collaborating. When I was choosing what range, I knew it had to be one that was going to give my hair the TLC it needs so I went for the To The Rescue range and was delighted to start using them as soon as they landed on my doorstep.

Interview With Oli from Marsicans

Over the past week I've been in touch with Marsicans. You may recognise their name since they are pretty much on all of my Spotify playlists. The band have been featured on BBC Radio 1's playlists too, with their single 'Friends', Marsicans have also just released their latest single, 'Too Good,' which has caused quite the stir, if you haven't heard it yet, you can do here. Made up of Oli (guitar), Rob (bass and keys), Cale (drums) and James (lead vocals and guitar), Marsicans are on the edge of becoming a big name in the industry with this cool, edgy, upbeat indie sound. After hearing that they were in Leicester I decided to get in touch, unfortunately I couldn't make the date to see them but I sent over some questions for their guitarist, Oli, to answer.

Tough On Fridays - Little Italy: Single Review

Tough On Fridays is made up of two girls, Katie and Caleigh, from Georgetown, Texas. Formed in 2015, the girls developed a sound similar to Blink-182 and Nivarna, they have recently released their single, Little Italy. At the moment, they are currently in the studio recording their second song, Retrospect. The girls met in middle school and since then, began working on their music together. Both Katie and Caleigh play guitar, Katie is about to begin her first year of college whilst Caleigh has graduated and is focussing on Tough On Friday's future.

Leave your skin feeling refreshed and clean with Sensse **

A brand called Senssé recently got in touch with me about reviewing their Silicone Facial Cleansing and Exfoliating brush. I love new ways to change up my skincare routine so, gladly, I accepted their offer. These facial brushes, I have been seeing more and more of, are what everyone seems to be loving at the moment therefore when it arrived on my doorstep I was eager to take it out of it's packaging. I mean, look at it! It is every girl's skincare dream.

Interview With Scarlet Kill

Scarlet Kill are a band from Gold Coast, Australia and create some great original rock/pop music as a foursome. Made up of twins, Matt and Will, younger brother, Mitch, and friend Bryce, the lads have been smashing it with their EP, She Draws The Heart Out Of My Love. This is band that no doubt you will fall in love with, and for those fans that are reading, I'm sure you can agree that Scarlet Kill are destined for big things.

Dance Through Your Day With MyVQ **

I am a massive fan of music, there's no doubt about it. So when I got the opportunity to collaborate with radio company, MyVQ, I was ecstatic. I was given the chance to choose what radio I would like to receive, and let me tell you, it was a tough choice! In the end, I went for the Retro MK II as it had so many ways to listen to music. I've never bought a radio, I've either used my alarm clock radio or my phone to listen to music. So I'm sure you can understand how excited I was to unbox this beauty.

Betty Box: The Period Saviour**

The other day, a lovely lady emailed me about a subscription box for young teens when they're on their period. I actually met the founder of this company at The Clothes Show last year and was very interested in what they had to offer. Betty Collective are an amazing company that post articles for teenage girls, including advice sections, beauty and much more.
