Morning Luxuries: My Pretty Makeup Setup

One of the ways that I like to make sure that my life feels that bit more luxurious every day is to inject even the smallest moment with an element of elegance. From waking up underneath nice bedding to using a rich, beautifully-scented shower cream to making sure that my makeup desk is pretty and pristine.

Metallic Body Tattoos: The Summer Accessory You're Missing

These gorgeous metallic hand tattoos are the summer accessory that you just may have overlooked and, never one to see an opportunity missed, I had to come on here to bring them to light again, I mean - HOW GORGEOUS ARE THEY?!?! Can you believe this one was only £2.50 and I still have some left. 

Body tattoos were first revived a few summers ago, delighting fellow 90s kids in the nostalgia of pressing a damp transfer sticker to our shoulder and peeling it away to reveal your new temporary 'ink'. Fast forward 20 years and gone are the Chinese symbols and butterflies. Simple brown Henna tattoos of 2014? We're way past that. The gold upper arm tat? That's soooo 2016. Nope, in summer 2017 we're offered ornate hand tattoos in many molten metallic shades that look like luxurious jewellery that has become one with your skin. From beautiful bohemian imagery to intricate tribal sketches and ornate art deco designs.  I, for one, am down.

Pretty, oh-so-summery and super selfie friendly! What better way to hide a summer bad hair day? Here's how you can make one for under £10:

How to Pick Yourself Up When You're Feeling Down

Since I posted about feeling down on Saturday, I've managed to pick myself up again so I thought that in today's post I'd share how I lift myself out of a bad mood.

 As I said in that post, there's nothing at all weird or wrong with getting down sometimes but I've learnt that it ultimately does no good to wallow or allow yourself to stay down if at all possible so here's how I avoid it.

For The Love of Lace

Happy Weekend everyone! I'm having to write this post sooo quickly because BT are going to cut off my internet in 12 minutes (long story but basically BT sucks in my opinion #dontsue) so please excuse any typos or weird formatting issues. I'll fix it tomorrow, assuming my internet works then. It's probably good timing anyway as, despite the earlier sunshine, I'm in a really weird funk today.

How To Make Cheap Clothes Look Expensive | YouTube

Hi everyone, I'm so sorry that I missed Monday's post - with all the madness that's been going on in the world lately I didn't feel much like writing a summery blog post on Sunday evening so I just spent the time watching the One Love Manchester concert and spending much needed quality time with George <3. I'll do an extra midweek post to make for it but first I wanted to remind you that I posted a new YouTube video last week all about How to Make High Street Clothes Look Expensive.
