Must-Have "Coffee Table Books"

Although I am a complete literature nerd, I also have an overwhelming love for "coffee table books", those beautifully bound, picture heavy books that you can just flick through to spark some inspiration. I am always drawn to pink and white, so my collection is rather aesthetically pleasing and I thought it might be of interest for those of you who have a gap in your life (or room) which needs to be filled with pretty pages of fashion and beauty.

Natural Products Which REALLY Work (GIVEAWAY)

I was recently contacted by a brand called Maple Holistics, a natural, cruelty free brand which specialises in haircare and skincare. Obviously I jumped at the opportunity to try out some of their bestselling products, as I'm always on the look-out for products which really work to show you guys! I have been testing these products out for about a month, so I have a pretty good idea of how they work and what benefits they actually provide. IMPORTANT: Read this post until the end to be in with a chance of receiving your own free products!

Nude Collection by Kate - Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks (with swatches)

The original "by Kate" lasting finish collection from Rimmel are my all-time favourite drugstore lipsticks, which is a bold statement coming from a beauty blogger and a self-confessed lipstick hoarder! I already owned every shade I could get my hands on, so you can imagine my excitement when I heard that Rimmel were releasing a whole new collection of 5 perfect nudes, plus a lip balm! I must admit that I rushed to my nearest Boots store as soon as these beauties hit the shelves, and started off with picking up 3 of the new products.

Sixth-Form Survival Guide: Checklist & Tips

I am one of those people who really enjoys organising things; from filing sheets of paper away neatly into ringbinders to colour-coding notes to writing detailed to-do lists. I can think of nothing more exciting than the annual back to school shop, when you stock up for the year on coloured pens, notepads, highlighters, pencil cases, folders and the all important academic diary (or is that just me?)

August Favourites

August has absolutely flown by and I can't believe it's already time to go back to college! I've had a proper "sorting my life out" kind of month; clearing out and reorganising my room, getting through my huge book pile, working out and eating properly. As well as that, I have made some fantastic memories with my closest friends, including drinking a little bit too much champagne at my results day gathering and having a great night! If any of you are wondering, I got 4 A's in my AS levels, in French, Maths, Philosophy and English Literature, surprising even myself! I'm planning to work just as hard (if not harder) next year to keep my grades up and get into my university of choice.
