Make up bag: These aren't products I use every single day. Sometimes I just use a bit of concealer, blush and mascara

But, these are always in my make up bag;

Rimmel BB Cream

YSL Babydoll Mascara,

Nars blusher in Douceur

Mac studio fix concealer

YSL Touche Eclat (limited edition version)

Real Techniques brushes and sponge

MAC lipstick in Ruby Woo (Always have a red lipstick in there)

2. Whats your outfit for today?

I'm loving simple items paired with a statement piece at the moment. A plain white t shirt and Boyfriend jeans paired with these gorgeous heels is a favourite right now. Plus, the heels are surprisingly comfortable!

ASOS boyfriend jeans

GAP tshirt

Zara jacket

Kurt Geiger London 'Samantha' shoes

3. It was recently NYFW who was your favorite designer ?
My favourite show at NYFW was Oscar de la Renta - classic, stylish and very girly. 

4. Whats your daily fragrance?
I love all the Marc by Marc Jacobs perfumes - I collect the bottles and have so many on my dressing table at home! The one I'm wearing a lot of recently is Dot. I just love the scent and always get compliments. It's just lovely and fresh.

5. mini quiz: heels or flats?
Red lippy or pink lippy?
Night in or night out
lashes or nail polish?

heels - although, I'm wearing flats a lot more than I used to! 

Red lippy

Night in (with prosecco, yummy food and a good film)

6 -your heading to LFW what do your wear?
 LFW outfit

ASOS metallic pleat midi skirt

H&M denim shirt

7 - what were your high lights of LFW and why?
I was only at LFW for a day as I was away for 3 of the days but, I always love hanging out at Somerset House people watching and getting inspiration for my wardrobe. I think London has the best street style (then Paris!) Simone Rocha was my favourite show. She's so talented. 

8 - if you could collaborate with any designer who would it be?
 I would collaborate with Simone Rocha. I love her collections each season - they're very feminine, with a classic but up-to-date edge.

How to Declutter your Home and Keep it that Way

Time to declutter What helps me destress, be productive and keep myself organised is getting rid of all the bits and bobs i keep laying around the house. Yes, that drawer full of crap and all the kids toys that keep mounting up after Christmas and birthdays. I start with 4 bags; charity, selling, friends/family and bin. You don't have to do all of these in one day, pick a room or an area for one afternoon while the baby sleeps and the toddler is settled with snacks and a colouring book and get busy. *Rooms* Bathroom- the cabinets, products you dont use or are out of date, bath toys, etc... Kitchen- food packaging, out of date products, pots and pans you don't use or need to replace Living room- the mounting of paper work hidden in drawers, kids toys, shoes, etc... Dining room- ( same as above) Bedroom- clothes you don't wear, brought but never used, old bed, bedroom drawers and tables, worn out shoes (good quality shoes can be repaired fairly cheaply s

Money saving Hacks | Christmas | 2020 edition |

It's that time of the year...   Remembering all the kids Christmas activities, nursery and school nativity plays, Christmas gift shopping, scheduling friends and family to come over during the holidays, teacher gifts, phonics, cooking the Turkey....   1- Plan Christmas a year to 6 months in advance  I know this sounds nuts but honestly knowing what is happening and who you're visiting makes it a lot easier and less stressful.  2- Buy gifts in the boxing day and January sales. Buy and stock up throughout the year on all the sales. It's amazing how much money you can save by doing this. I manage to save up to £200/£300 by doing this each year.  3- The things you don't think of buying in those sales. Wrapping paper, christmas cards, tape, gift tags, gift bags, Christmas arts and crafts for the kids, stickers, advent calendars (the non-chocolate ones) I brought the Harry Potter charms bracelet advent calendar and frozen 2 advent calendar in Sainsburys

5 creative ways to make extra money

1- sell unwanted items Is it time to do a clear out? Need a little extra money? Sell those trousers you've not worn in 3 months and sell the dress you've only worn twice.  Make sure all items are washed, no marks and no rips etc... these are all things that will help you in the selling process. Take lots of photos of the items, compare on other selling sites to make sure you check out your competitors. Good places to sell are facebook pages, Ebay, depop, Amazon, car boot sale and friends or family  2- creative skills  Are you creative with woodwork, clay, jewellery making, etc... if so put these hobbies into a place online and sell them! Don't forget to charge for materials, hours per day, time to take photos and uploading,etc. 3- teach another language  If you have a second language then good on you, another skill to write down on your cv! Launch a new website of what you can provide, zoom language classes, work sheets, online courses, etc. Make it clear on what you can pr
