The Glossier Dossier

Hey girls (and boys),

Hope you're all feeling fabulous as ever! I'm back with a post on the cult American beauty brand that's taken the UK by storm ever since they finally answered our prayers and started shipping to our side of the pond. I'm talking about Glossier of course. (I mean it was in the title, so you probably already guessed that..) If you've been living under a rock and haven't heard of Glossier, or you just hadn't got round to placing an order yet, stay tuned, cause ya gal's gonna share her favourite products with you! There's also a cheeky discount code too!

OOTD | Poolside Chic*

 Hey angels,

I love an Outfit of the Day post as much as the next girl, but I rarely do them. Why? I've been asking myself the same question and I've yet to find an answer! I'm consciously going to make an effort now to create more fashion content for both my Instagram and my blog, so hopefully you'll see some more of that very soon! Today's post is a fashion-themed one (yay me) and contains a couple of gorgeous pieces from UKSwimwear that I wore during my recent trip to the Algarve in Portugal!

Is there something interesting on the floor hun?

#FightTheFrizz | My Realistic Shower Routine

Hey my loves,

I thought I'd talk to you about something I'm sure you've all been dying to know: my shower routine.

(We'll call this segment "Behind the Curtain"... get it?)

I wish I could say that my shower and hair washing routine is as glamorous and effortless as the adverts you see on television. Sadly it's just not the case though - What with all the rogue shampoo droplets that make a b-line for my poor, poor eyeballs - as I'm far too clumsy/lazy/easily distracted for that. Nope, mine consists of a lot more procrastinating and singing for starters! But more on that later; first I'll talk you through a few products I've been loving recently!

Leicester Loves Boo! | Boo Burger Review*

Hey fellow foodies,

We need to discuss a burger I ate a couple of weeks ago, because quite frankly, I've not been able to get it out of my head!

I was invited for a meal at Leicester's newest burger joint, Boo Burger by the lovely people at Spottydog Communications. Situated on London Road, about a ten minute uphill walk from the train station, you might be wondering if it's worth the effort? Abso-friggin-lutely. Started up by two brothers with a love for burgers, you can see that their passions have been passed down to the whole team at Boo, as everyone we spoke to was so upbeat and friendly. They have an open kitchen too, so you can keep a watchful eye on your beloved burger as it's being made. (Although not for long, service is fast!) The menu is fairly simple, in that there are only 6 burgers to choose from, but they do everything on it so well that I'm not mad in the slightest.

Music To My Ears | Volume 1*

Hey loves, 

I’ve been wanting to write a music related post for a while now, a desert island ditties, if you will; and it’s finally reached a point where I have so many songs floating round my head that I need to share them with you before my head does indeed explode.

You’ll need to have a killer sound system when you’re listening to some of these; great music is nothing without a good set of speakers! The Panasonic Multi Room Speakers are a fab option, as they're wireless and come in a range of sleek designs so blend in easily with your decor. Then all you need is a great CD, your smartphone, or perhaps you can just use this little playlist I've put together!

So without further ado (and rambling, cause let’s be real, your girl knows how to talk) here are all my favourite songs right now, and a little bit about why I love each one.

Lingerie Lovin' with Little Women*

Hey honeys!

Apologies for being a little MIA lately, I've been working full time at Next HQ and trying to get into a good fitness regime, and have a social life, (I know, calm down Izzy) and I swear there just aren't enough hours in the day to fit everything in! If you're one of those people that manages to get their butts out of bed early enough to squeeze in a gym sesh/exercise class before work then I COMMEND YOU!!
