HELLO THERE, FOXY LADIES (and foxy men too). I was invited along to the new Smashbox store in the Bullring a couple of weeks ago, but unfortunately because I haven’t tricked a rich man into marrying me yet and still have to work the 9-5, I wasn’t able to make it down. However, the lovely folk at Smashbox very kindly sent me a few of their new releases to try out – and what absolute beauties they are. I thought I’d put together this quick first impressions post so we can get get all loveheart-eye-emoji over the products together, and then you know what you need to rush out and buy immediately.
I don’t know if I’m alone in this (don’t you dare let me down and say I am), but I kind of hate having to shower. Taking my clothes off and being all cold and then getting in the shower and being all hot, and then getting out and being all cold again while waiting to get warm… it’s just straight-up HASSLE. And don’t get me started on how red and blotchy I go after a shower, because I genuinely thought that might ruin my relationship when me and the BF went away together for the first time (who wants to go out with a blotchy tomato?).

Last month, I showed you 10 Unreal Things You Can Buy In Primark Right Now, based on their handy New Arrivals section on the website. I really enjoyed putting that post together (mainly because I’m a top Primark pervert) and you seemed to find it useful too, so I decided it might be an aiight idea to make it a bit of a monthly feature – I know right, because I’m soooo good at those. Nobody ask me where my February Round-Up is because I DUN KNOW. View Full Post
Happy Valentine’s Day, one and all! Now, rather than waste a post on nause-inducing romance, I decided that today was the day to tell you all about one of my favourite, most-loved (great link, see?) experiences of recent weeks: my visit to Foofed. ‘Foof?’ you ask, ‘Isn’t that another word for a vagi-‘ – yes, yes it is, dear readers. But Foofed is also a gorgeous new blow dry bar / ultimate pre-night out destination in Sutton Coldfield. I was recently invited along to try out a treatment, and as I had an event to go to, I decided that a curly blow dry was definitely something I needed in my life. View Full Post
If you’re anything like me and like to go into a Primark with a solid idea of what you’re looking for, then you’re in for a treat. I’ve scoured the New Arrivals section of the store’s website and whittled down 10 of what I think to be the very best things that have apparently recently landed in store. Whether or not you’ll be able to find these beauties in your local Primark is of course just one of the risks you have to take when shopping in Primark (along with the risk of getting your foot ran over by a pram/getting trapped inside a dress in the changing room etc) – but if you can find any of them, then it’s going to be so worth it. Without further ado, here are the 10 things you can currently buy that I think are UNBELIEVABLY good: View Full Post
It probably won’t come as any great surprise to you that I don’t know much about cars. In fact, when it came to shopping for my first car, I nearly gave my dad a nervous breakdown as I insisted on ignoring all of his suggestions about mileage, running costs and road tax and always ended up saying “Yeah, but I don’t like the colour”. However, when I was contacted by the Vantage Motor Group in Solihull about whether I fancied test driving the brand new Toyota C-HR for a weekend, it was a definite yes. I might not know my horsepower from my headlights, but I do know I like the chance of being one of the first in the UK to take a brand new model for a spin.
