Gemporia Jewellery

You guys know how much I love jewellery. It's one of my purchasing loves, mostly because I have a magpie like attraction to all things pretty! I also love jewellery because my fashion style is very much along the lines of: basic clothing, styles and trends, using jewellery to spice up my outfits. Jewellery can add a twist on any outfit, and the better the jewellery, the better you're outfit will look. So with that said, I'm always on the lookout for new brands who bring a little something different to the jewellery table...


The A-Z Of Me

I love the posts that show you more of the face behind the blog, they're always some of my favourite things to read. So when the very lovely Jennifer Helen blogged about the A-Z of Me I felt inspired to write my own, just because it sounded like a really fun post to write! Plus, I love to share insight into some of the weird and wonderful ways of my world. So without further ado, here's my very own A-Z of Me... (I'm pretty pleased that I managed to get something for all but 6 letters, and obviously they were the really hard ones!)

The Truth About Young Mums

I recently got to thinking about young mums. Partially because a debate started amongst friends in which the question of 'what age classes you as a young mum?' I was intrigued to know what the general opinion is regarding this and so I started a Twitter thread, which showed that generally speaking everyone agreed that women under 25 years old classed as a 'young mum'. With a vast number of those who took part, saying that under 23 was a specific age point for this. I wasn't surprised, as generally speaking, that's also my personal opinion.

Charlotte Tilbury First Impressions

So as a blogger, one name we're all exposed to frequently on the beauty circuit is Charlotte Tilbury. Until then, I'd never heard of her, or her brand, and was sweetly ignorant to the cult classics she has been making for quite a while now... Sadly for my bank balance, this changed with a recent visit to Selfridges in Birmingham...

First Quarter Look Back

Unbelievably we're now approaching Easter. How, how, did that happen? It literally seems like last week that I was getting my turkey and stuffing thang on and celebrating Christmas, but here we are, the first quarter of 2016 already down. Funny huh? Here's what's been going on for me...

Things Every Twenty-Something Girl Knows

So, I've come full circle.

And that's not as dodgy as it sounds! I've basically gone from loving being in my twenties (the early years) then to hating them (the middle bit) to now loving them again as I approach the big 3-0 next year. I guess it's kind of like a chronicle. But I have now found happiness in being a woman in her twenties. Well, okay, I wasn't unhappy before, but I guess I'm just more content nowadays.

The journey hasn't been short of discoveries (some good, some bad, some tragically embarrassing) but I have learned that there are some staple bits of knowledge that accompany your twenties, and I feel it's my duty to pass this on to the next generation of twenty-somethings...

Blog Promotion - Pick A Blogger

Like any other brand, the key part of increasing your blog audience is marketing and promotion. The more people who know about your blog, the more views you'll get, as well as an increased social media reach. All of which contributes to your blog's organic growth.

There's lots of strategies and methods to promote your blog and maximise exposure because without good marketing and promotion you are severely limited to the natural reach of your blog. You could have the best flat lays, the most brilliantly written posts and the best level of social media interaction but without promotion and marketing then you're restricting, or at least slowing, your rate of exposure. After all, you want the biggest audience possible for your blog, right?

Mother's Day

I'm not one for public declarations but there's one person that deserves all the love, adoration and praise...and that's my little man.

The day I became his Mummy was the day that defined me, that completed me and showed me what life was truly about. The day he came into the world was that day that made me.

My Beauty Shelfie

If like me you're constantly trying new products for your skin, body and hair, then you've probably got a bathroom shelf as loaded as mine - lets hope yours isn't on the brink of collapsing too though! However, despite the fads, phases and testings that go on, there will always be a small selection of trusty products that have pride of place - never to be replaced by another product, and only swapped over for a full bottle or tube when empty. You know what I'm talking about. So without further ado, here is my Beauty Shelfie...
