How I'm Battling My Acne

I've always been open with you concerning my acne. I've talked about all of the different medications and creams that I've used, how somehow my acne always returns. Now, I'm left with a scarred face, there's lots of ice pick scars from where I've picked and squeezed my spots and I hate them.

Top Free Apps All Bloggers Should Have


As a blogger, having different apps for different things is how we live our lives. There's an app for everything now-a-days but I'm going to walk you through the best free apps that all bloggers should have on their phones.

Keep Your Hands and Feet Moisturised with Flexitol**

Over winter, my hands and feet have been getting very dry so when Flexitol asked to work with me, I jumped at the chance! Just before Christmas, I received their Heel and Hand Balm to trial and I'm pretty sure my mum has stolen them now!


I've been using these for a little while and have been loving them. I think they're great if you need something to combat the dry, sore skin you get from the harsh wind if you're not wearing gloves in the winter.

Zoella's All Four You

I've never really made an effort to try Zoella's Beauty range but when my mum came home with her All Four You set, I had to give them a go. For £4.99 in Superdrug, I don't think my mum could resist them. Zoella Beauty is something that is always coming up on my feed from fellow bloggers and it's something that I've been meaning to give a go. As a birthday present, last year, I received some of her Bake My Day range which I loved so I don't know why I didn't buy any more of her products sooner.

I know it's no longer Christmas, but I don't think that these mists will ever be just for Christmas!

Let's Get Pretty Curious**

Choosing what you want to do when your older can be difficult. I remember when I had to pick my GCSE options and what I wanted to do after them. It’s really important that you choose something that you'll enjoy, be that a new subject or one that you've already done. Don't think about what everyone else is doing, for example, if you want to do Computing do it. Just because a subject is male dominated, doesn't mean that you should avoid it completely. Girls, go for something you're going to have fun learning. 

They Really Are Created By Magic**

I was kindly sent my very own print for my room the other day, a print that I had personalised. Created By Magic are a print company that can produce a personalised or generic print especially for you. They have an array of different designs, quotes and colours to choose from - which makes the decision making very difficult! Not only do they do prints, you can also buy their personal storybook which is for little children to enjoy and connect with their bedtime story. There is also a chance to buy some personalised jewellery too!

Why My Imperfections Make Me Who I Am

Nobody's perfect - Hannah Montana taught me that when I was 10! But then Selena Gomez came along and started asking who said I wasn't perfect and things from then on got a bit messed up. When you're going through a hormonal change, you look at yourself in a different light and begin to start hating things about yourself. In this post, I'll be discussing my imperfections and why they make me who I am.

Hogwarts In The Snow // My visit to the Harry Potter Warner Bros Studio

On January 6th, I went to the Warner Brother's Studios to see The Making of Harry Potter, and for the first time, Hogwarts in the Snow. I love this place, I've been plenty of time before and this time it was even more magical. We took a coach trip and spent a few hours around the studio. I did film the day, you can watch my vlog here.

I Got Access to the Capital FM Studios

On the 4th of January, I headed to Nottingham for the night. This was to celebrate my birthday and go to see Tom and Claire from Capital FM. I last met Tom and Claire when they came to Leicester for the Leicester College X Capital FM X JP Cooper event where I interviewed them. The event was very fun and they invited me to the studio to get a little tour and sit in on one of their shows.

GUEST POST: Creating the Perfect Flatlay from a Photographer's Perspective

Many of you won't know me so I will begin by introducing myself. My name is Joe and I run my own website/ blog at www.pixproductions.co.uk. I focus on the behind the scenes on photography, videography and postproduction. Sophie has recently asked me to write a guest post going into the technical aspects of taking a flatlay photograph. So that is what I have done. Without wasting any more time here are 3 tips to taking high quality flat lay photographs.

Happy Birthday to me and One Unique

The past three years have flown by. One Unique turns three today and I'm turning 17! This is so strange, I always knew that I would be writing this post and I hope that I will be writing them in years to come still.

Top Pick of the Week - Fickle Friends

I'm a big fan of these guys, their music is so catchy! From Brighton, this indie band are always on my playlists no matter what. They're releasing their debut album in March and I'm excited to be heading down to one of their shows on their UK promo tour.
