A Controversial Topic – Are Bloggers Bribing People??

August 11, 2018

Organic growth. Real following. Engaged audience. All terms banded about in the blogosphere every day. Now, this one is a post that has sat in my drafts for about 10 months.

Urban Decay BackTalk Palette – A Perfect Holiday Makeup Item

August 5, 2018

So, for fear of being one of those people, can I please start this with a blatant beg?? I have finally, after about eight months of trying, managed to implement a newsletter onto the blog. I cannot tell you how happy this makes me, as me and technology are not usually friends! But, I did it all by myself, and I am happy about that…

If We Were Having Coffee…

July 17, 2018

I decided I would write one of these posts, inspired by my gorgeous friend and fellow blogger, Janelle from The Nelly bean. You must check her out, she is amazing.

July 3, 2018

Well look at me, all fancy, having just had a mini break to Salzburg! I booked this trip as an impromptu last minute treat for Nik’s for his birthday last month.
