Prada Candy is a White Floral fragrance with notes of sweet pea and citruses. I haven't stopped wearing it.

It's got a lovely creamy scent and I love all things sickly sweet so this is perfect. It has a great lasting power and I can still smell it hours after wearing it. I've had lots of compliments when wearing this scent too which is always nice.

The bottle is simply stunning. A powder pink shade with a black lid and gold lining and font. It's gorgeous - perfect for any girl's dressing table.

If you're in the market for a new perfume and are also a lover of creamy sweet scents, I highly recommend this one! Go go go!

Ocean Salt (not self preserving) by Lush - Ocean Salt is a face and body scrub containing avocado to soften the skin as well as sea salt to scrub away any dirt. I absoloutley love this! It leaves me feeling refreshed and my skin feeling super clean.

Clearasil Rapid Action Pads - These little pads are great for oily skin. They help to reduce the oiliness of my t-zone whilst also reducing the appearance of blemishes.

Neutrogena Micro-clear Spot Treatment- This out of all of the spot creams I have tried usually works the best. If I ever have any blemishes, I always head to this to sort it out and I'm usually left feeling a lot better about my skin. This helps to dry blemishes out and reduce their size.

Now as you probably know, I am a lover of basics. Whenever I set out on buying clothes I always remind myself that monochrome and plain and simple is the way for me.

I tend not to buy patterns and prints as I find them harder to wear and to be honest I just love a good block colour.

Recently, I picked up this lovely jumper from H&M. It's a beautiful light grey shade, but also comes in bright yellow, a powdery pink and baby blue! I remembered seeing The Vintage Vision style the blue one in one of her lookbooks and loved it! I grabbed hold of a grey one and knew it had to be mine!

The jumper is lovely and soft, easy to wear and cosy. It has a this interesting detail where the seams are almost 'inside-out' which I really like.

This jumper is something I feel I can dress up or down by adding a statement necklace and a bold red lip or simply just pairing with some denim jeans.

It's a bargain at £14.99 too! Buy yours here

Philosophy is one of my favourites when it comes to skin and body care. The scents they create are delicious and the packaging is just lovely and simple.

Two of my favourites from Philosophy have always been the Sweet Creamy Frosting body lotion and the Christmas Cookie shower gel/shampoo/bubble bath.

The Sweet Creamy Frosting body lotion is my favourite. The scent is sweet and sugary, something I really like in a fragrance. It applies nicely and the smell barely fades, leaving you smelling like a yummy cake! It's great for keeping my skin hydrated and has lasted me such a long time.

Christmas Cookie smells equally as yummy. I use it as a shower gel more than a shampoo. As a shampoo, I find it to be slightly soapy, leaving my hair with an unusual feel. However, as a shower gel I adore it. The scent is incredible. Really sweet...I almost want to eat it.. seriously.

I loved these so much that I had to get some spares even before I'd barely run out. They're lovely!

This foundation is the best budget foundation I have EVER tried. Truly brilliant.

Bourjois Healthy Mix is a light and airy foundation with excellent coverage. I use the lightest shade Light Vanilla, which matches my pale complexion perfectly and tend to blend it into my skin using my Real Techniques expert face brush. I find that this way I achieve the most natural look but also the look with the most coverage.

It's super long lasting and gives the skin a dewy glow, making your face look bright and 'healthy'.

At the moment I am absolutely smitten with this foundation, wearing everyday above all of my higher end products. Definitely a must-have for your make up collection.

After years of eyeing up other peoples stunning palettes, filled with the most sparkly and creamy eye shadows, it was finally time I got my hands on one.

I have not yet begun to fill in my palette, so I'm looking for any suggestions you guys might have?!

I'm a lover of neutrals and coppery tones - not one for a smoky eye really...any help would be seriously appreciated. Let me know down in the comments what you think I should try out, I would love to hear!

Time to start my MAC Palette...

New Moon is a glittery iridescent copper shade with a metallic finish. The pigmentation is pretty good, although the texture when applying it becomes less creamy due to the glittery texture causing the colour pay off to be a bit less than I'd hope.

It last a good few hours on me but I imagine wouldn't last too long on oily eye lids. The shade looks great with blue/green eyes, really making them 'pop'.  It's great for that one swipe eye shadow look, very quick and easy but a lovely result.

This eye shadow is beautifully sparkly, great for an evening out or a more dressed up day time look. It can easily be applied with either fingers or a flat brush; simple!

Girl Online, Christmas best-seller of 2014, follows the life of a teenage girl named Penny. Penny struggles with anxiety and panic attacks, causing her to find some of the things that happen throughout the novel quite difficult. It follows your traditional girl-meets-boy storyline but also really helps to highlight issues such as anxiety and cyber bullying.

The book is by Zoe Sugg, Zoella on YouTube, and it is so clear when reading it. You can see Zoe's personality and ideas intertwined in the story line, so much that I actually pictured the character of Penny as a younger Zoe. Zoe's love of Brighton and the lanes, as well as blogging and many other things, really shines through, giving the book a really heart warming touch.

The book is easy to read, split up into small chapters and is printed in hardback making the book really sturdy. The front cover is lovely and vibrant, really eye catching.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It really struck a chord with me, due to it's relatable attributes. I am huge fan of Zoella, and this book just makes me love her even more! The romance combined with such real life problems makes this a great read for any teenager.

The K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipsticks are Charlotte Tilbury's signature range, created with icons in mind. In this case, Marilyn Monroe.

I'm a HUGE Marilyn lover, as well as a red lipstick addict, so this product just screamed my name. The lipstick is a beautiful red carpet/Hollywood red, just like Marilyn would wear. The consistency is somewhere between firm and creamy, not at all drying and the pigmentation is stunning. This leaves my lips hydrated but still bold and making a statement. So eye catching! It has good staying power, but would need to be re-applied.

The packaging is also lovely. It comes in a beautiful rose gold, reflective of a vintage era. The price is £23.00, which is a little on the pricey side but I would say it is worth the investment.

Something that I have been thinking about a lot recently is other people. What other people are doing, what other people say and what other people have that I don't have.

In life, you may have to face some struggles and make tough decisions. The decisions you make need to come from what YOU individually feel and think. Don't let others influence you or sway you, unless it's for your benefit.

For example, going to University or College, many people do it. It seems like the logical way to survive in this world, but it isn't necessarily for everyone. Not everyone enjoys education, not everyone needs a degree and millions of 'A's. If you are subjecting yourself to something you won't enjoy, then stop. Someone who really doesn't enjoy that academic side of life might persuade themselves that going to University is the only thing they can do. Not true. Do what you love. Don't do anything you don't want to do.

I am in no way saying that University or College are bad. Of course not! They're perfect place for the right people. But... if they're not, you don't need to worry.

The way I'm starting to think of it is that 'Everything HAS to work out'. You must just come to a point where things slot into place, whether that's due to education, a job, a person, it must just happen.

It may seem scary to not know what you're doing, where you're going. That's where I am right now. However, as long as I continue to do things that I enjoy or have interest in, then I can do no wrong because that can only lead you to do something or be somewhere you like. Somewhere you are happy.

What I'm trying to say is that it's okay to not follow the norms of life. It's okay to be different, in what ever way that may be.

I love photography, beauty, fashion, blogging, so I subject myself to those things rather than anything else. No one has to do something they hate, no one.

Do what is right for YOU.
