Something Old, Something New: Excerpt and Blog Tour




After a long couple of weeks with no posts thanks to ruddy exams (one down, three to go!), I have something fun and exciting for you all. Today marks the start of the blog tour for Darcie Boleyn's Something Old, Something New, and after reviewing her Wish Upon a Christmas Cake last year, I jumped at the chance to get involved. Sadly, I haven't time to read the book yet due to the joys of university (#notreallyjoyousatall), and so today I have an excerpt from the book to whet your appetite.

So, I didn't follow you back on Twitter?



I'm pretty sure it's happened to us all. You get a new follower on Twitter at, let's say, 8pm one night. Cool. Hey there, maybe we'll end up being friends. But if you haven't followed them back by the next day, well, they don't hesitate to click the unfollow button. And sometimes it happens with the same person a few times. You've done nothing to offend them overnight, except not follow them back straight away. But what is so wrong with that?

Lusting After Dresses I Can't Afford (And Praying I Win £500 to Spend at Maje!)



Summer is just around the corner, and I have plenty of events coming up - three holidays, my graduation and two weddings - all of which I have to find some gorgeous dresses for. After stumbling across Maje, a brand I'd not previously heard of, I fell in love with four fabulous dresses that would be just perfect. The downside? They're pretty far out of my price range, and I can't afford a single one. The upside? Maje happen to be running a competition to win £500 to spend. Yes please!

Meet my advertisers | April 2016



Already April has passed us by and summer is creeping up on us (and I can't bloomin' wait!). I had some wonderful bloggers advertise on my sidebar last month, and with shopping addicts, beauty lovers, bookworms and lots of pink, there's definitely some great content for us girly girls to browse...

Preparing for Summer Holiday Style with Aldo (plus a chance to win £500!)



I am a self-confessed holiday addict. And I'm proud of it. We all deserve to take some time off to relax in our perfect holiday setting and calm our minds. For me, a sunshine holiday is favourite, (though I do love a city break too!) and with Benidorm, Dominican Republic, Mexico and Tenerife coming up for me in 2016, I have plenty to look forward to. So when I saw that Aldo were running a competition to win £500 to spend with them, I jumped at the chance and browsed their site to pick out some of my summer favourites. 🌞 (Don't worry, I'll let you know how to enter too!)

Having a well-deserved #CalmDay



"Calm the mind, change the world."
It's no secret that I am stressed. Whilst juggling two part time jobs, a mathematics degree, numerous deadlines, plus blog posts and social media, my mind is constantly working overtime, even when I'm settled in bed ready to sleep. I struggle to find the time to put life on hold, breathe and just relax for a moment. Until, that is, Calm came into the picture.
