A couple of weekends ago I spent a few days down in Somerset with my boyfriend and I had such an amazing time. I'd never been to Somerset before and I was shocked at how pretty it was, there were so many beautiful landscapes. I stayed in a log cabin in Wells and the cabin was perfect, really unique features and it had everything you could possibly need for a few nights stay. The couple who own the cabin were also really welcoming and accommodating which made all the difference too.

It took about 3 hours to travel down to Somerset but it was well worth the drive as we had an amazing time. 

 The photos above are all from Bishop's Palace which is gorgeous and well worth a visit if you're ever nearby.

  The two above photos are from Vicar's Close.

We visited quite a few places including Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole, Wells Cathedral, Bishops Palace and Glastonbury
I realise there's quite a few photos in this post but I couldn't reduce the number of photos anymore, especially as I took over 450+ in just a few days!

Have you ever visited Somerset?

Primark Lip Liners £1 each // Essence Eyeliner Pen £2.50

The other day I popped into town and bought a few new beauty bits. It's only a small haul but nonetheless I still wanted to share it with you all as I'm really enjoying using them.

Primark Lip Liners - £1 each
I picked these up as I'd seen a couple of other bloggers mentioning them and how they were great for the price. In all honesty, if I hadn't read reviews previously I probably wouldn't have picked these up.
These lip liners don't have shades or numbers which is a little inconvenient but the shades are gorgeous. The formula is creamy and non-drying and surprisingly long lasting and I;m impressed and would definitely repurchase these again. 

Essence Eyeliner Pen - £2.50
If you've been reading my blog for a little while you may remember this post confessing Collection's Felt Tip Liner as my favourite liquid eyeliner. However, I think I may prefer this Essence Eyeliner Pen as it's more pigmented and is more long lasting. The tip is thin enough to create a thin liner or a thicker liner look, so it's very versatile. 

Have you tried any of the products I've mentioned above?


This week has flown by once again, and today is the last day of freshers. So tonight I have the freshers ball and I'm so excited! It's always a good night. 

I feel like I've been really busy this week with lots of uni work and being bombarded with a lot of deadline dates and assessment briefs. I've also spent a lot of time watching Scandal on Netflix, it's so addictive!

How has your week been? What have you been up to?

The other day I picked up the B. Sweet Popping Candy Highlighting Serum on a whim as I'd never read any reviews about the product, but it was half price and packaging drew me in - isn't it beautiful?! I've actually never tried anything from the B. Sweet range as I never really go into Superdrug and I've not seen many of their products mentioned on blogs but maybe I'm just oblivious!

I use this product in two different ways. The first way is by applying it as a base underneath my foundation and I do this if I'm after a more glowing look. If I'm after a more subtle glow I blend a little bit of the product in with my foundation on the back of my hand, the method I use really depends on how I'm feeling that day.

The product itself is pretty and really reminds me of the Guerlain Meteorites Base Perfecting Pearls but there's obviously a huge price difference. Although I will still say that this is on the more expensive side of drugstore products. 

I am really liking this serum and I would recommend that you try it if you like a glowy look. However, I'm not sure if I would pay the full price of £14.99 as I did purchase it when it was on offer. 

Have you ever tried this illuminating serum?

This has been my first week of freshers and I start uni again tomorrow and I'm quite excited. I've actually missed learning and although this will be my most stressful year as its my last, I want to learn again!

I've been slacking on beauty posts recently and I apologise but they are in progress and will be posted soon!

How has your week been?

I will be honest here, until a couple of years ago I had no skincare regime at all. Throughout most of my teenage years I was lucky enough to have fairly clear skin with the odd typical breakout here and there but nothing major so I didn't bother. I do regret this now as I'm sure I'll be paying for this later on in life but I do now have a skincare regime, it's still pretty simple but it's something.

All of the products I use are really affordable too as I'm a student and can't afford to be splashing out on luxurious skincare at the moment, but I love the products I use.

Garnier Micellar Water £4.99 | I can't rave about this product enough, I love it and swear by it and that's the end of it. Okay, well I'll tell you a little more but it's my favourite cleansing water I've tried and I recommend it to anyone I can and a few of my friends and my Mum have started using it after me going on and on about it! It's gentle on my skin and also removes waterproof mascara too. It's on offer quite frequently in Boots so keep an eye out for that. I've only tried the original formula but I know that Garnier have brought out a Naturals and Pure version which I'll try at some point.

Simple Revitalising Eye Roll On £5.19 | I bought this a few weeks ago whilst it was on offer and mentioned it in my haul here and I'm so glad I did. It's really soothing and moisturising and I apply it both morning and night. 

Simple Illuminating Radiance Cream SPF 15 £6.59 | I also picked this up whilst it was on offer and I'd definitely pay full price for it when I repurchase it. It's a lightweight moisturiser that doesn't leave my skin feeling sticky and clogged and it also has SPF 15 which is a bonus. Some illuminating products I've tried in the past didn't really do much for my skin, but with this I really can tell the difference. Alternatively, I used to use the Simple Rich Moisturiser which I swear by in the colder months. 

There you have it, my favourite skincare products that are also really affordable. Like I said previously, my skincare routine is pretty basic but that's how I like to keep it as I'm usually in a rush in the mornings. 

Have you tried any of the products I've mentioned?

I think most of us secretly (or maybe not so secretly) love watching hours of TV series, films and Youtube videos so today I thought I'd share with you what I've been watching recently.

Great British Bake Off | Who doesn't love this show?! I love Mary Berry and the recipes the contestants cook look delicious and make me want to run to Tesco to buy the ingredients to attempt them myself, although mine wouldn't end too well. I love Mel and Sue too, they're absolutely hilarious and I could watch them for hours.

Unit | This is a new series I started watching on Netflix recently about men who are in the army and also it includes stories about their wives who are at base camp. It's thrilling and so intense at times, but I just can't stop watching it.

Made In Chelsea | I have a guilty pleasure of loving MIC, I find it so addictive! Although I do get a little jealous of their lifestyle sometimes and I have a love-hate feeling about Spencer Matthews and a soft spot for Jamie Laing! 

What have you been watching recently? Is there anything you recommend me to watch?
