MRI Scan: The Day Of


I've been hella lucky to have two MRI scans (sense the sarcasm?) within six weeks of each other. I usually have at least one per year and have done since I was a teenager, yet they still bother me. I'm claustrophobic and they freak me out; so a few weeks ago I wrote a post including some valuable tips on how to prepare for an MRI, you can find that post here.

June Favourites



June hasn't been an eventful month for me. In fact I've hardly blogged as I've been in so much nerve pain with left arm that even looking at my laptop sets it into spasm, so apologies for the lack of content. I also haven't been wearing a lot of makeup as I've lived in my pyjamas and only left the house for the odd appointment.

Firsts: First Alcoholic Drink


Do you ever have those memories that are so clear you can almost see them in your mind as if you're an outsider looking in? As if they happened yesterday? This is how I remember my first experience with alcohol.

June #Paperhaul Stationery Subscription Collection


The June #Paperhaul arrived today and I knew I had to photograph it and show you all immediately as it's so bloody beautiful. Yes, in today's heat I sat with my camera taking these pictures because I'm so dedicated...I also felt guilty because there was no new content up today and I always post on a Monday. Anyone else just completely unmotivated when every part of you is sweating?

Worried About an MRI Scan? Tips and Advice


I've had MRI scans every year since I was 13; I'm now 30 so I've had quite a few. However, because I'm very claustrophobic, I always get anxious before the scan, and sometimes work myself up for a few days before despite knowing what to expect.

Tarte Takeover


I've been having a bit of an affair with Tarte Cosmetics lately and although I've not worn makeup in a few weeks (combination of crap health and staying at home in my pjs) when I have decided to slap something on, these are the products I've been reaching for.

5 Planner Essentials



So I have this thing with planners, and you can see my collection here but I thought I'd share five things I use all the time in my main A5 Duck Egg Filofax. If you're a stationery fan, you probably want to check this out too.

Nip+Fab Beauty Review: Why The Liquid Lipsticks Aren't My Favourite



Nip+Fab have recently extended their line and released a large selection of makeup that I knew I had to get my hands on. I popped into Northampton a few weeks ago and the Nip+Fab stand in Superdrug was pristine, with not a fingerprint in sight; very dissimilar to the Nyx display in Boots that looked like a group of toddlers were using it for finger painting. Anyway, I decided to be restrained (I don't know who I am anymore) and only picked up three products; the white foundation mixer, and two liquid lipsticks.

I Changed My Name: One Year On


A year ago (almost to the day) I wrote a post about how I changed my surname at almost 30 years old. You can read the how and why I did it in my original post here. But I thought I'd do a little update and let you know why it's one of the best decisions I've ever made.

May Favourites and National Smile Month



I'll hold my (very sore) hands up and admit that I've been a shit blogger for the month of May. To be honest not only have I been in a lot of pain, especially with my hands and arms, I've just not been in the mood. I'm hoping since I've blogged twice this week it means I'm back in the swing of things but only time will tell - and since my hands are pretty painful typing this, I'm not going to make any promises.
