I'm Getting Married!


It's been a while since I've blogged but I have been so busy recently! Anyway I wanted to let you all know that I've got some pretty exciting news, I guess the title was a bit of a giveaway! Yep that's right, Olly asked me to marry him! We have been together for 2 and a half years but we've actually known each other for almost 9 years. 

We went for a picnic in Richmond park a few weeks ago (which actually turned out to be the hottest day of the year so far, so perfect picnic weather!) and Olly got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. We love going for picnics in Richmond park and have a little secluded spot we always go to, so that made it extra special. We then ate lots of food and drank lots of prosecco! Olly knows that I would want to choose my own engagement ring so he proposed with a beautiful floral Pandora ring and then let me choose my own 'proper ' ring. 

Since then I have been in full on wedding planning mode and have already booked the church, reception, photographer, florist, furniture, sent out all invitations, sorted all the bridesmaids dresses, sorted all the groomsmens and grooms suit...phew! I am an extremely organised and decisive person so planning a wedding seems to come naturally to me! Let me know if you have any wedding planning tips, I'd love to know.

Summer Flowers With Prestige


I'm not one to turn down an opportunity to review a bunch of flowers, especially when they are as beautiful as this lovely bouquet from Prestige Flowers. I chose to review the bouquet of 40 roses as I loved the mix of colours and I was not disappointed when they arrived. The gorgeous mix of orange, yellow, fuchsia, red and white roses make these the perfect flowers for summer and they have certainly brightened up our flat over the past few days.


I was really impressed with the delivery, I ordered on Thursday and asked for Saturday delivery as I am out at work during the day and they were delivered at 9.30am which meant there was no waiting around for them to arrive. They were packaged in a big cardboard box so they were well protected and I was also impressed that the delivery man managed to find out flat (which has proved extremely difficult when getting flowers and parcels delivered previously!). So all in all a very easy and hassle free process. This particular bunch costs £34.99 usually but there is a special offer on at the moment which means they're only £19.99, what a bargain! And what's better is that you get a little box of chocolates free with every order, and what girl doesn't love flowers and chocolate?! I'd definitely recommend Prestige Flowers if you're looking to order flowers online. What's your favourite type of flowers?

A Sephora Haul


It's a fact that you can't go to America without spending an obscene amount of money at Sephora, which is exactly what I did in Florida. I had a list of a couple of bits that I wanted but as usual that increased once I was in store! 


The first section I headed for was all the Beauty Blenders. I've been using my beauty blender for about 6 months now and can't imagine life without it however I have neglected it a little bit so it was time to invest in a new one. There were loads of different colours available and I decided on the limited edition 'red carpet' in the end. It's the same as the regular pink BB, just in a pretty red! I also got the solid cleaner as this will ensure I keep the sponge looking nice and new. Finally from BB I bought the new liner designer which I'm super excited to try. It is a flat piece of silicone that you use when applying your eyeliner to create the perfect winged effect. There are 3 different ways you can use it. Goodbye to uneven eyeliner!


I bought quite a few different lip products as I am loving trying different lipsticks recently. I went straight to Anastasia Beverly Hills as I've been wanting one of her liquid lipsticks foreverrrr. Unfortunately most of the colours were sold out which was a shame but I did manage to get my hands on the gorgeous Sarafine shade, which is perfect for me as I love a bright red lip. I also bought the lip primer from ABH which will hopefully help keep the lipstick in place all day. The next lipstick I bought was from the limited edition Minnie Mouse range. The whole range is so cute and I love he packaging, again I couldn't resist the classic red. How cute is the little Minnie head on the actual lipstick?! Finally for lip products I bought the Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme. My friend asked me to pick one of these up for her as she'd read great reviews so I got one too. Three words...Kylie Jenner lips!


I am a bit of a mascara obsessive, so when I found this set of 5 miniature best selling mascaras I was very excited to try some new brands. I've already tried Lancome Hypnose and Benefit They're Real but I've heard great things about Too Faced Better Than Sex. Of course I had to stock up on my holy grail product - ABH Brow Wiz, although ya know what I worked out it's not any cheaper to buy in the US! I also got the clear brow gel to keep my brows in place and looking their best all day! 

So there we go, my (big) Sephora haul! Have you tried any of these products before? What would you like to try from Sephora?
