The perfect summer dress

photo(8)Every year I am on the look out for the perfect summer dress, and this year I believe I have found it, this beautiful little number from Cath Kidston.

I have always been a fan of floral prints. I just can’t seem to help myself. I will be out shopping and will instantly be drawn to every floral item of clothing in the particular shop that I am in. View Post

Moroccan Inspired Tea

photo(7)

I came across this recipe through a friend. I have never actually been to Morocco (it’s on my bucket list) so I didn’t really know what to expect from Moroccan-style tea especially as it isn’t something I regularly encounter. Now that I have educated myself on all things tea, I can say that this particular one has a lovely refreshing taste and is so easy to make that I couldn’t wait to share it on my blog. View Post

The battle of the concealers

photo(5)

I am not one to spend too much time on my make-up. For work, shopping, grabbing coffee and general day-to-day wear, I use concealer under my eyes, blusher on my cheeks, a dust of powder on my T-Zone and add a few soft strokes of Anastasia Beverly Hills Perfect Brow Pencil to define my eyebrows. Then if I am feeling really fancy – or just have a spare two minutes – I may also use a bit of mascara on my lashes (currently No7 Stay Perfect Mascara). View Post

Ten reasons why New Zealand should be on your travel bucket list

Travelling has always been a passion of mine, and not to brag about it, but I class myself as being quite well travelled. Australia had always been somewhere that I was desperate to visit, and so I did… in fact I lived their for two years. While I was down that end of the world I decided to hop on over to New Zealand for a six week tour, and boy was I in for a treat. New Zealand completely blew me away and I have not been able to stop raving about this place ever since (it is now two years ago since I was there).

Four questions to ask yourself when buying red lipstick

The perfect red lipstick is like the little black dress, every woman needs one and once you have your perfect shade you will wear it over and over again. Now I don’t actually own a little black dress, but I do own a lot of red lipsticks, and I have definitely spent far too long covering the back of my hand in various stripes trying to find the perfect shade.
