When Greek Mythology Meets Fragrance: Penhaligon's Luna & Endymion Concentré

Penhaligon's Luna Endymion Concentré


For me, perfumed blogger mail is always the most exciting thing to drop on my desk, as my passion for fragrance fuelled my desire to push this blog into new realms, and of course contributed to its renaming. As it stands, perfume makes up a small part of this blog, but for me, those posts are the ones that I put my heart and soul into, as writing about fragrance allows me to express my creativity in ways that a beauty post simply does not allow.

64 Lifestyle Blog Post Ideas to Kick Bloggers Block in the Butt!

64 Lifestyle Blog Post Ideas


I always hear of people saying that they struggle to find blog post ideas. That's something I personally find completely baffling as I always have a good couple of week's post ideas planned at any one time. I thought I'd put together a quick list of ideas for anyone that gets a case of bloggers block. Being primarily a beauty blog, I do like to keep things varied with a lifestyle post here and there, but it doesn't come as naturally as beauty. Knowing where to draw the line when it comes to a personal post is hard. I mean, will people even care? Are people even bothered what I eat in a day? Let's face it, the title of this post is a bit excessive. Kick-ass? Hmm maybe. Put it this way, posting one of these posts will guarantee a read from me anyway! 

Bodega Cantina Launch, Leicester

Bodega Cantina Leicester


Last week, us bloggers were invited to join Bodega Cantina for their launch night, and it was an event I'd been looking forward to for what seemed like an age. So the day came, and I stepped out  dressed for the occasion in my pineapple skirt. After a quick cocktail at nearby haunt, 33 Cank Street, the group assembled and we made our way to the venue, which is located in a prime spot in the popular St Martin's Square. The outside sure made an impact, with it's bright decor, and certainly gave a taste of what was inside.

Benefit Goof Proof Ready, Set, Brow


Benefit are renowned for brows. Women have been perfecting their brow arches at their bars for 30 years, but their brow products were always a little overlooked. I bought Brow Zings (one of my first high end beauty purchases) a few years back and while I liked the concept, the shade wasn't that great for my brows and the kit found itself at the back of my makeup drawer.

Big Blogger Night Out at Meridian Leisure, Leicester

Meridian Leisure Park Leicester


Last week we found ourselves with an invitation we could not refuse, a night of great food, drinks and bowling at the Meridian Leisure Park in Leicester. Now the Meridian isn't somewhere I usually frequent, as it is a little outside the city centre near Braunstone, but I was really surprised at how many great eateries there was, it's certainly changed since I last went there! I didn't manage to take all that many photos, because to be honest, I was having too much fun, but I did vlog the evening within my weekly vlog, so I'll leave that at the end of the post or you can click here to watch if you prefer.
