| Lifestyle | Crazy for Copper

Hey hey beauties,

So it’s officially weekend number two back in Aberdeen and I’m slowly getting there with my wee flat. Its getting cosier by the day and I couldn’t be happier.

The only room I have completely finished and made my own is the kitchen. So I thought I would do a quick little post on ALL the copper pieces I’ve picked up to give the kitchen the Shonz effect.

| Beauty | Winged Liner – FOTN

Hello Beauties,

Time for OOTN/ Face of the Night post. So I thought I would share with you one of my latest night out makeup looks. Mainly because I have never been prouder of my winged eyeliner In.My.Life. And also because it was a special little night out as I had just got the keys to my new flat in Aberdeen and pre drinks were finally round at mine!

| Beauty | Cold Plunge Pore Mask by Ole Henriksen

Hello Beauties,

I’m currently sat here typing this post up surrounded by all my moving boxes. A break is seriously needed from packing. For those of you that have dealt with the stresses of packing up a flat and moving to a new city alone you will totally get my current feelings.

So all that being said, I decided to treat myself to a new face mask, my stressed out skin is so desperately crying for. And lucky lil me I actually had £25 worth of boots points on my card. Plus a face mask I had been excited to try had an offer on from its usual price of £28 to £23. So the choice was a super easy one.

| Beauty | January’s Empties

Hello my Beauties,

So time for my first empties post. I’ve never gotten round to doing one of these, mainly because once somethings empty its chucked away asap – I mean why keep it??

But I’ve decided for the purpose of this post I’l keep a few products after I’ve used them to let you lovely people know my thoughts and if I would re purchase.

So let’s get into it…

| Lifestyle | Homeware Picks

Hello lovelies,

 

So I’ve decided to put together a quick blog post on my current favourite bits and bobs for around your home. This is inspired by the fact that yesterday (Haha when I initially started this post *cough* September) I started my first steps towards becoming a home owner. Super super exciting!! I went into my first meeting with a mortgage advisor just to get an idea of where I’m at now, how far I need to get to get on the property ladder, and how much of a mortgage loan is possible for me.

I went into this meeting with zero expectations and I left on an absolute high. I had been looking at flats at the lower end of my mortgage range thinking that had been my highest range. So to know I can afford a much better flat/house is just fab!! Also on a side note, if you live in Scotland like I do and you’re a first time buyer definitely look into setting up a Help to By ISA. This is a government scheme that you can use to save your 5% deposit and when you go to buy the government will contribute a percentage (up to £12,000 + £3,000 from the gov).

 

Every little helps!
