Autumn Favourites

 It's that time of year when the evenings draw darker and the days are shorter. Saying that Autumn is by far my favourite time of year. A great time to try new things, update the wardrobe and any excuse to just chill! This post will showcase a few of my favourite things... ENJOY! 


 Teddy Bear Coat

Faux fur coats are still trending. They are comfortable, cosy and keep you warm! The one below is from Mango AW19, however, I have linked a similar one.



Zara Blazers

A classic navy blazer is the ultimate wardrobe staple, I found the perfect one, a Balmain style dupe, from Zara last month. 



Topshop Dress

Looking for a dress that can take you from day to night? This gorgeous Topshop one will do just that. It is an extremely versatile navy floral dress, which you could pair with a denim jacket and boots during the day and blazer and heels by night.

 Mario Badescu Rose Lip Balm

Tis the season for chapped lips but 2020 style. With face masks now a part of our #ootd, is it even worth using a highly expensive tinted lipstick? This moisturising Mario Badescu lip balm is sure to salve your lip issues.

Bobbi Brown - Skin Longwear Foundation

I love this so much, not only is it quick and easy to apply but it is smooth and incredibly light. It makes your skin glowy and gives you that perfect finish.




Levis Face Masks

Talking of face masks, my favourites are these Levis ones. They are practical and super cute.

John Lewis - Taste of Britain Hamper

A wonderful treat for yourself or a gift for others as the festive season rolls in. 


 Tassimo Baileys Hot Chocolate

Searching for the most luxurious, velvety hot chocolate? I've got you.

Advice For New Year 11s

 It has been a funny year for us all. Exams were cancelled for the first time in over 60 years and it was a strange experience indeed. Here, I have a few tips that are specifically going to help the upcoming year 11s, although, I do think anyone can apply them.  I know that I would have loved to see a post like this, this time last year as it is worrying to think about! 1. Use Your Planner Whether it's an ordinary planner issued by your school or an academic diary it is really important that you use this. You will need it to write down dates for exams, deadlines for homework notes so you don't forget items. My planner was a huge help and I have no idea how I would have survived without it. They are issued for a reason so make sure you use them! 2. Keep Yourself Organised This kind of runs off from my previous point, but by simply ensuring that your folders are organised, you are saving yourself a lot of time. Maybe sit down every other week and organise any loose sheets so that

When Shadows Fall - Sita Brahmachari Blog Tour

 Welcome back! Today's blog post is an extra special one, dedicated to Sita Brahmachari's new book, 'When Shadows Fall'.  Aside, from its stunning cover, and the book focuses on the poignant tale of Kai, Orla, Zak and Omid, 4 friends who are in their youths. Sita takes you on a tale through their troublesome teenage years ending at the age of eighteen, post-A-Level Results Day.  The novel is illustrated beautifully by the talented Natalie Sirett , a great friend of Sita's.  The novel follows the lives of this friendship group, 13, 14, 15-year-olds with no place to go, who are outsiders from the rest of society. Sita's aim was to document the children she saw over a period of many years, being outsiders, having no place in the world. This is strongly seen through the character of Kai. Having become friends with Natalie over 25 years ago, when their children were young, this is Sita and Natalie's first book together. Sita described it as 'This book is the

Bi-DEN Trump

 This article is a little outdated but I thought I would post it to the blog this week as a different read, it is related to recent events in America. Enjoy! The article was written in November 2020, a week after a victory was declared for current US president Joe Biden. Image: NBCNews.com Well, what an extraordinary year 2020 has been for many of us, impacting us in some way or shape, and for many defining our future! One of the biggest news stories alongside COVID-19 has been the political events that have happened in the US; for many the biggest election in the history of the United States. That’s right, earlier this month over 155 million people voted and used their political voice, the biggest voter turnout ever in the US. Not only this, but a fantastic historical achievement was made; Kamala Harris became the first elected female vice president - an achievement definitely worth celebrating from across the pond! With it being the most talked about and publicised election ever you
