WEEK IN PHOTOS NO.88

It's been an interesting week; one day I was in my wellies searching for mine and Douglas' Christmas tree to reserve and collect next month and another day I was in London just chilling out with McBusted. As you do. It's been a good week though and I'm looking forward to get a little more festive next week because it'll be December and it's now socially acceptable to.

EMPTIES #7 • LUSH & THE BODY SHOP (VIDEO)

When your boyfriend tells you to do something about all the empty pots (particularly the black Lush pots) that he keeps knocking over in the bathroom, it's about time to film another empties video. I discuss some of my holy grail products as well as some new found favourites.

VERY.CO.UK SS15 PRESS DAY (CLOTHING & HOMEWARE)

I ventured over to London at the beginning of the week for a few bits in my diary, one including the very.co.uk SS15 press day. I've bought electronics from them in the past and have always been impressed with my overall experience but never have I thought about buying clothing and accessories from them. I found a handful of pieces that I will be buying as soon as they're available, one of them being a pastel pink faux leather jacket and I'm amazed at how affordable everything is. Oh, don't get me started on all the lovely homeware.

BAKING PUMPKIN LOAF #BAKINGWITHRHI (VIDEO)

I very much enjoy cooking, I have done since I can remember and recently I decided I wanted to start baking as well, so of course I thought why not make a new series on my YouTube where I try out new recipes for the first time and hope all goes well. So, here it is, my first (and not so great) attempt at baking pumpkin loaf.

WEEK IN PHOTOS NO.87

It's the last week of November and I'm officially getting excited for a month full of festivities. Anyone feeling me? I've been living in big cosy jumpers and munching on all the yummy festive treats Marks & Spencer have to offer; not that I don't do that all year round.. but it's totally acceptable now Christmas is a month away.
weekend begins with a new book, coffee and porridge • jumper from new look (buy similar) • the limited edition fighting 
animal testing soap from lush came through my letterbox today; all money (minus vat) spent on this soap 
helps support the fight against animal testing. YAY!

Tara, 16 from Australia

"Fashion has always been an integral part of my life - despite numerous fashion faux pas, but, I dress for the moment, how I am feeling and what I like. No regrets. I strongly believe in dressing for yourself, expressing yourself, your individuality and who you are as a person, through your style. I love to shop at markets and op shops as they are the key to uniqueness. You never know what you can find for the price of your lunch money. As for me as a person, I Instagram, make YouTube videos, I own an online store and I blog. I'm currently doing everything I love and I can't wait to see what happens in the future."

WEEK IN PHOTOS NO.86

I must admit, it's been a great couple of weeks. Last weekend started with an all-expenses paid mini cruise with my boyfriend (read post) followed by some lovely blogger events involving heaps of candy, cute pyjamas and girly movies. Continuing the fun, Douglas and I visited my dad this weekend down in Brighton which is always nice to have a change of scenery and catch up with him and my friends. Vlogs will be going up this week!

Can you believe this is the second to last monthly favourites video for the year of 2014?! No, me neither. I had quite a lot of homeware and clothing favourites during the month of October and I already have a nice list forming for my November favourites which I'm exciting to film. Tons of new discoveries.

MINI CRUISE WITH ROYAL CARIBBEAN: QUANTUM OF THE SEAS

Last weekend myself and Douglas had the opportunity to experience a two day mini cruise on Royal Caribbean's, Quantum of the Seas, the worlds first ever smart ship. Neither of us had been on a cruise before so it was exciting to try out something new as well as being the first ever guests on board the ship. Some of you may have already seen the vlogs here but I thought I'd also share some photographs I took during our trip to go alongside.
