Vinyl Love!

Sunday, 27 August 2017

Yes, it's time for another music-themed post...

I do love my music, and as an avid record collector really enjoy letting you all know what records I have been buying, and what music I have been loving lately. This time around though, I thought I would just talk about three of my most recently purchased records...


'Aladdin Sane' - David Bowie

It's not unknown that I'm a big fan of David Bowie and his music, and therefore love a lot of his albums. Until recently, I only owned a couple of compilation albums on vinyl, so certainly wanted to expand my Bowie collection... and did so a few weeks ago by purchasing one of my favourite albums, 'Aladdin Sane'.

It's All About MeMeMe!

Friday, 18 August 2017

No, this post isn't actually all about me, but is instead about a makeup brand that recently came to my attention called MeMeMe Cosmetics...

I just love being introduced to new beauty brands, and so when MeMeMe asked me to try out a couple of their new Matte Liquid Lipsticks, I obviously jumped at the idea. The thing is, I had been on the look out for a new lip product or two for some time, but couldn't really decide on just what to get - therefore, when shown MeMeMe's collection of 5 new Matte Lipsticks, I just couldn't resist picking out a lovely nude shade and also a gorgeous red!



So far, I must say that I have really been loving trying out these lipsticks, as both shades just look really great and seem to stay firmly in place for hours on end. The nude lipstick (called Suede) is perfect to wear on a daily basis, whilst its red counterpart (called Temptation) is really vibrant and will therefore look lovely when worn of a night, so will definitely be coming with me on my upcoming holiday to Italy.

Getting Back Into Baking...

Friday, 11 August 2017

I have been vowing to get back into baking again for some time, so am constantly on the lookout for new recipes to try. Whenever I visit Waitrose, I like to have a peek at the monthly recipes that they display on a stand in one of the aisles to see if there's anything in particular that catches my eye, and a few days ago, I happened to notice a rather lovely looking recipe for a Peach and Almond Cake and thought that I would actually have a stab at making it myself...

Which is just what I did, and considering that the cake I made actually turned out looking half-decent, I thought I would share my take on the Waitrose recipe here today!

My New Favourite Shoes...

Sunday, 6 August 2017

Owning a pair of Dr Martens has been on my wishlist for such an incredibly long time, so seeing so many people sporting gorgeous pairs of them on blogs and Instagram has definitely made me feel pretty envious in recent months...

However, I can now proudly call myself a Dr Martens owner! 


I have known for some time that I would opt for a pair of the shoes that the brand sell, and whilst browsing through Schuh's range quite recently, I found a pair that I really loved...

The pair that I opted for are the 1461 Classic Black Flat shoes in patent - whilst I do like the classic boot style that the brand offer, I must say that the shoes suit me a lot more, and will probably work a lot better with many of my outfits. Therefore, I am already getting pretty excited about pairing my new shoes with all manner of outfits from black trousers and t-shirts, to jeans and big slouchy jumpers once the weather starts to get colder (although, it does appear that summer has pretty much vanished already).
