New Year, New Blog Goals


Hello lovelies! I hope you have all had an amazing Christmas and New Year, I know I certainly did. It's been a little while since I posted, and I'd really wanted to get this post up on the 1st, but I was stuck writing an assignment and just didn't manage to get around to it. I'm ready to get back on the blogging bus though, because lets face it... I haven't blogged consistently since I went back to University really, so I figured what better way to get myself back into and motivated than by setting myself up some goals for the coming year!

#UrbanNCL: Urban Decay Blogger Event

So last week I was lucky enough to attend an Urban Decay event in Newcastle and I couldn't have been more thrilled. I am a die hard Urban Decay fan and have all the Naked palettes bar the original (I know, I don't know how I never bought that). This is my first makeup orientated event so I know you all know how exciting that is!

Amazon Brush Haul and Reviews


A few months ago I did a pretty big brush haul on Amazon to find out whether cheaper brushes were actually worth buying. I'd previously bought a set of four blending brushes before for £1.20 and was really impressed with them so figured why not try some others! I've made sure to actually use them for a good month and a half before writing this so I can be as accurate and honest as possible with my reviews.

Life Update: Why I've Been MIA



Hi lovelies, I've been pretty quiet here for the past month or so so thought it would be a good idea to give you all a bit of a life update before I get back to posting. I've seriously missed actively blogging and have to admit I'm a little miffed that I've struggled so much to post... especially when I have so many completed posts just sitting waiting!

Recipe: No Bake Rocky Road




My name is Samantha, and I, am a food addict... or at least a girl with a serious sweet tooth which has been sabotaging my weight since 2011. Is it worth it when my fix is Rocky Road though? Hell yeah it is! Rocky Road is so super indulgent that one piece is enough to satisfy the neediest sweet tooth... and that is a promise.

My Unconventional 'Five Year Plan'


Have you ever had a family member or a friend asking you what you plan to do next with your life, or whether you plan to settle down soon? Have you had that look of shock, or pity when you've said you aren't sure, or when you've said you don't plan to do what they hoped? Yeah, me too! Lets face it, pretty much everyone is expected to have a five year plan... or at least something similar to show the world that we have some sort of the plan for the future so nobody has to panic... or worse pity us.
