5 Books to Read This Summer

As I am 100% swamped with exam prep (#prayforCodie) and wedding planning (www.quirkynuptials.co.uk) and general life, I asked the lovely Maisie to write me a guest post and, of course, it was about books! I haven't read any of these, so I will be downloading a few for the honeymoon (62 days and counting!)

NumNoms: Crazy Creation*

NumNoms challenged me to create a #CrazyCreation and so - I grabbed some of our niblings (Did you know that’s the plural for nieces & nephews?!) and borrowed the mother-in-law’s kitchen and with an overly-extravagant video set up (perks of having a videographer as a future husband!) we got to work. 

Whitewash Nano: Tooth Whitening Review

One of my biggest insecurities is my teeth. I’ve had braces twice but the little buggers don’t want to stay in their place, and with paying for a wedding, I can’t afford to get them done beforehand. So while trying to love (or at least accept) the little gap in the front and the slightly goofy look that comes with it, I knew I wanted them white. The problem with that is knowing where to start! 

YeeRah Liverpool - Restaurant Review*

I’ll be honest, when YeeRah slid into my inbox and asked if I wanted to review their new menu (note to companies: always yes!), I couldn't for the life of me recall having ever seen them before. It wasn’t until we went the escalators in Liverpool One and I saw the restaurant that I remember passing by so many times thinking “Ooh, that place looks good”, before being boring and going with a trusty often-visited place instead. 

Homesense Haul - Wedding & Garden Inspiration*

You all know how much I love Homesense, so when they offered me a giftcard to check out their new ranges in store, I was over the moon!

Because the summer is creeping up on us, there are so many garden items that are new in and I was set the challenge to look for things that could work for doing up our garden (eventually! Come on good weather and motivation!) as well as potentially the wedding too. With the wedding being outside it ties in perfectly, so here is what I got...! 

Blog Events 101

April is set to be a busy month for me in terms of blogger events (#humblebrag) and I thought it might be useful to write a little post about the various types of events and my top tips for attending, to hopefully help some newer bloggers, or those who have yet to venture to an event

Cruelty Free Make-up

I'm a veggie for a whole host of different reasons, but animal welfare is a pretty huge one. So it would seem silly for me to not try to make cruelty-free choices when it comes to my makeup and beauty choices. After all, I'm against animals being bred and slaughtered for my tummy, so why would I want them to suffer for my face? 

Pizza Express Formby: Review* (All the food!)

On Friday, Steven and I were lucky enough to be invited by Pizza Express (total babes) to check out their new restaurant in Formby. So, Slimming World be damned, we headed off (dressed far too fancily for pizza, but we don’t go out much…!), ready to eat all the food. 

The (Broken) Vagina Monologues - An Introduction

I am an unashamed over-sharer. Whether it be ingrown hairs, repulsive (but hilarious) farts, or embarrassing moments, I’m not afraid to have a chat about the things that others shy away from. I’m not sure why this is - perhaps I just have no shame - or where it stemmed from, but one thing I have noticed, is that for every one person who is horrified and vows never to speak to me again, there are several who find it hilarious and one that finds it useful. That’s where the idea for this series came from. 

What Am I Doing with my Life: 2017 Edition

I feel that this is a running theme in my world. Like, what actually am I doing with my life?!

The answer at the moment is working too much and neglecting my poor blog(s) and Youtube channel. When writing is your job, and you make vlogs for a client, it's easy to forget about the OGs like your own personal blog - which is exactly what I have done for the past year!
