Classic Gingerbread Men...

Wednesday, 23 December 2015


Here we have it, the last Christmassy baking post of the year, I've loved baking all these Christmas recipes and next year I will defo be doing it again.
If there'e one thing I bake every year its these Gingerbread men. They're so simple to make and they're pretty much a blank canvass so if you're making them with little kids they can decorate and you can bake them. I usually make these with my baby sisters and they love to decorate them.

Christmassy Oat And Cranberry Cookies...

Friday, 18 December 2015


These may look like normal oat and raisin cookies but they have a slight Christmas twist, Cranberries instead of raisins. These are the best cookies I make. they're so chewy and the cranberries make them taste so Christmassy I love them, especially with a hot chocolate.

Gift Guide For Him...

Wednesday, 16 December 2015

Following on with the gift guide theme from my last post, I thought I would put together a little gift guide for the boys. Sometimes shopping for girls can be such an easy task if you like the same things but you can't go and buy a boy a lipstick can you so it can be a little bit more on the tricky side, I know this from personal experience, my boyfriend is the hardest person to buy for in the world!

First up are Candles. This can be a little bit of a hit and miss gift idea to be honest, not all men like candles, my boyfriend isn't a massive fan of them at all but he doesn't mind the more manly a sent. At the moment he's loving the Shearer Amber Noir Candle, it's only about £8 and it smells amazing, it also has such nice packaging.

If the man in your life is a bit of a gamer like mine a Game would be a perfect idea! My boyfriend is a Playstation lover and sometimes I have to peel him away from the TV so he can interact with other humans. At the moment he's obsessed with FIFA 16, he loves football so this would be a perfect addition to his gaming collection if he likes footie too, although they can be a little pricy.

Luxury Gift Guide For Her...

Monday, 14 December 2015


If you're like me, leaving presents to the last minute and then can never think of anything to get anyone, well I've got your backs! I wanted to make a little gift guide, I made a gift guide for Valentines day and I loved it so I thought why not make one for Christmas, following my Christmas themed December posts. These are pretty much all my fave luxury bits that any girl will adore.

So to kick off my little guide for you guys I've got Calvin Klein undies. Getting underwear for that special someone for Christmas is a given really, but although lacy undies are amazing sometimes a girl wants a bit of comfort while still looking beaut. My boyfriend bought bought me some of these Calvin Klein undies when he last went to America and I just love them! They're so comfortable and I don't feel like a slob in them at all. The crop tops are about £28 and the knickers are about £18, they are quite expensive but for the comfort they're so worth it.

Next up MAC make up. Make up in general is always something to think about for a girls gift, but if you're buying for someone and you don't know their skin tone a lipstick is always the way to go. I'm sure all you girls are with me in saying MAC lippies are the bomb, they're so moisturising, even the matte ones leave my lips feeling luscious and for £15 you can't really go wrong especially as some people probably wouldn't spend that much on a lipstick for themselves, so a gift is perfect.

It's defiantly not Christmas without CHOCOLATE. Personally I very rarely eat chocolate so when I do I like it to be something a little bit more luxury and expensive as it's such a treat for me. A cheaper more luxury choc is Lindt Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffles, they're only about £3.50 a box in supermarkets so they're super easy to find and sooo tasty.

5 Reasons Why I Love Christmas...

Friday, 11 December 2015


14 Days till Christmas! If you read my blog regularly you'll know that I'm just plain obsessed with it, everything from decorating the tree to eating my body weight in mince pies, but I thought I would only list a few reasons I love this time of the year because otherwise we would be here for days.

Food
Christmas is basically a time for food lets be honest. As you all know I'm a veggie so finding something for my Christmas dinner that isn't a nut roast isn't aways the easiest but this year my mums surprising me with something so I'm super excited for that. Let alone all the chocolate and cheeseboards there will be.

Presents
Now this just goes without saying, I love giving people presents and seeing their faces when they open something I've bought them that they love, especially my two baby sisters, they get way too excited. I obviously love getting pressies too as I love surprises! I've never been the type of kid to go looking for my gifts because I love it when  I have no idea.

Easy Peasy Mince Pies...

Wednesday, 9 December 2015


Is there really anything more Christmassy than a mince pie? I don't think so really, with a bit of Baileys cream is my fave, I've started to make my own but I don't always have time to make my own pastry so this is my quick and easy recipe for home made mince pies, which are soon tasty.

My Christmas Make Up Loves...

Monday, 7 December 2015


When it gets to Christmas time I love to mix up my make up routine a little bit, the basics usually stay the same like foundation and concealer but the more exciting things change like eyeshadow and lips etc.

So this year I've become a little bit obsessed with the red lip look. I'm seriously hoping I get MAC Ruby Woo for christmas but in the mean time I've been using a couple of the Topshop colours. First off I've been loving Topshops Velvet Lips in 'Velveteen Ribbon', the only annoying thing is that they don't actually sell this anymore because I got it last year, so I've been savouring it. These lip velvets are such a perfect matt and they stay on all night long, I don't usually use this with a lip liner because it doesn't really need one, but sure it would still look amazing with one.
The second Topshop lip I've been loving is their Matte Lip Bullet in 'Motel'. I love these lip bullets, they're so easy to apply and they last so long, this is the perfect christmassy red, although it's a matte colour with a bit of clear lip gloss over the top makes it look so shiny and cute.


Next up we have some eyeshadows. I've featured both of these in two different posts before but I'm still so in love with them, starting off with Max Factor Wild Shadow Pot 'Burnt Bark', I featured this in my Autumn Essentials post and I'm still loving it. I like to use this eyeshadow for my crease because I think it makes the perfect shadow and its just so sparky I love it.
The second Eyeshadow love I have this season is my MUA Undress Me Too Palette. This little beauty had its very own post, and again I'm still in love with this bargain beauty. For the Christmas time I love using the sparkliest colours, my favourite ones are the gold and the rose gold colour.
Another sparkly little number is the Topshop glow pot which I featured in a very recent post.

Last but not least we have eyeliner. I'm never really an eyeliner kinda girl, my everyday make up never consists of it, but when it comes to christmas and my eyeshadow is looking on point I sometimes like to throw in a little flick to make it look extra special. At the moment I'm alternating between the Soap and Glory Supercat and the Maybeline Lasting Gel Liner, I usually use the gel liner more just because I think it gives a better more natural look, but if I'm rushing and want a super slick flick the supercar works perfectly.

Those are my favourite Christmas make up bits, what are yours?

Get The Perfect Christmas Nails...

Friday, 4 December 2015


When it comes to nails you all know how much I love my nudes, but at this special time of the year I like to mix it up a little bit and put a bit of colour in my life, although it has to be a Christmassy colour otherwise, whats the point aye.
My favourite colours at the moment are from Barry M, I love their staying power, especially on acrylic nails, I do find that with my acrylics I find it really hard to find nail varnish that doesn't wear away at the ends all the time, but Barry M is my lifesaver.


My first nail colour of choice is Barry M Nail Paint in 'Gold'. This is such a christmassy colour because not only is it a really amazing bright gold its super sparkly. I usually find that with a sparkly gold colour it takes me about 4 layers for it to actually come out gold and look nice, but with this gold I do 2 layers and its perfect.


The other favourite colour of mine is Barry M Gelly Nail Paint in 'Red'. Christmas is literally the only  time I ever wear red nail varnish, it's one of those colours that really don't suit me at any other time of the year, I don't know why but it just doesn't work on me, but for Christmas time it seems to just fit. The shine of this red is so glossy and shiny, sometimes when I use this colour I will paint one of my nails with the gold colour too because I think it just really goes well and is of course, the perfect Christmas combination.


There it is, my fave Christmasy colours, what are your favourite nail colours for this time of the year?

Christmas Shortbread Biscuits...

Wednesday, 2 December 2015


It's officially December and you know what that means... CHRISTMAS! This is by far my favourite time of the year so I thought, what better way to show you all than with a month of Christmas themed posts! Cracking off the month of December with a little cheat treat for you guys, these little shortbreads make for such a nice treat, they also make a great little gift for kids, wrapped up in a cute little christmas bag.

Ingredients

  • 175g Unsalted butter (MUST be at room temperature)
  • 225g Plain flour
  • 60g Caster sugar
  • 1 Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 Tsp Vanilla extract
  • Black food colouring
  • Red Skittles
  • 66g Icing sugar
  • 1 Tbsp milk
Method
  1. Chop up the butter into a bowl. Iv in the flour, sugar, salt and 1 tsp of the vanilla (leave the rest for the icing) and rub all together with your hands to form a ball of dough
  2. Iv some flour onto your workspace where you will roll the biscuits out
  3. Roll out your dough, quite thin but not so much that its going to break when you pick it up, then cut out your shapes. I just used a glass to get a perfect circle
  4. Grease your tray with some butter, or you could use grease proof paper
  5. Put your shapes on the tray and put in the fridge for about 20 mins
  6. While they're chilling, pre heat your oven to 180° 
  7. After they've chilled, pop them in the oven and cook for about 8 minutes, or until they're golden brown on the top
  8. Take them out of the oven and cool on a baking tray, in the mean time you can start on making your icing.
  9. For the icing, mix the icing sugar, the rest of the vanilla and the milk in a bow until all combined, super easy and super tasty using milk instead of water
  10. Keep some of this icing in a separate bowl for the noses, but after you've separated it you can mix in the black food colouring
  11. Now the hard part, using a tooth pick because this makes it easy, dip it in the black icing and carefully draw some antlers and some eyes, you can use my images as a guide
  12. Then take another tooth pick and dab some of the white icing and make a little nose, then you can stick on a red skittle as a nose.
  13. Repeat that on all the cookies and leave to dry
  14. ENJOY!
I hope you enjoyed this christmasy recipe, I would love to know what you thought and if you make your own.

Cream Highlighter vs Powder Highlighter...

Monday, 30 November 2015


The age old question I ask myself is which highlighter shall I use? If I'm 100% honest with you ladies, before I started blogging I didn't even know what highlighting was let alone weather I should use cream or powder! So recently I've started using them every other day, so one day I wear my creamy one, one day I just wear my powder and sometimes if I'm feeling extra fancy, I'll wear both.

Powder Highlight
My current powder highlight of choice is the Sleek Face Contour Kit in 'Light'. I picked this up because it came with a contour kit, which is also pretty good but, as you can tell I don't really use it much anymore. This highlight is has a very subtle glow so its perfect in the summer with that amazing tan. The one thing I do find with this highlighter is that if you're wearing the powder alone it doesn't really stay without a setting spray, even with that I still adore it.

Creme Highlight 
The creamy highlighter I'm using at the moment is the Topshop Glow Highlighter in 'Polish'. I love this highlighter its such a nice glow all year round, it also makes the perfect base glow. Unlike the powder highlight it stays on really nicely all day and all night with or without a setting spray. You only need a little bit on your cheekbones to have that perfect glow.

Both Together
I am obsessed with using these two highlighters together, I think it gives the perfect amount of sparkle on a night out. It makes me look like my skin is seriously glowing, as the creme works perfectly as a glowy primer it makes the powder stick perfectly, I love them, they're definitely my must have beauty item this year.

What are your favourite highlighters?

My Early New Years Resolutions...

Wednesday, 18 November 2015


When it gets to this time of the years many things run around my head and I start thinking about my New Years resolutions, saying that, I always want to start them early, so here goes...

Up my cardio game
I workout about 3-5 times a week at the moment, I usually weight train which kills me by the end of the week, although I love it. I recently purchased Tammy Hembrow's Fitness Instagram which is amazing, it works out to about £20 but it's honestly so easy to follow especially if you usually have trouble following guides. 
One thing about it is if you're like me and you need to lose quite a bit of weight before toning up the non existent muscles, you'll know cardio is a massive factor in losing the weight. Because I follow her weight training so religiously I've started to slack on my cardio so I've not seen a lot of weight loss in agessssss. So that's defo number 1, more cardio, so more running and swimming, maybe a cheeky bike ride here and there, lose that weight finally.

Take more photos
Now, for a professional photographer I am shockingly bad at taking photos in my own time. Christmas and events like that is an exception but everyday life I ned to document more.
My Instagram is one of my social media accounts that I love to browse through, liking photo after photo, but I never have any interesting images to post, which is actually getting a little bit annoying. So one thing I need to do a lot more of is that, maybe buy a new Instagram only camera to take beaut images on, or maybe learn to use my phone camera a lot better.

Plan my blogging diary
My organisation skills are terrible, there is nothing else to say than that. As you've probably noticed I've been missing a day of blog posts here and there and I've even dropped my Sunday posts for the time being while I'm trying to get through this term of Uni.
So while I'm on my Christmas break I intend on getting my act together, writing posts early so I'm not having to do them the night before, which I may or may not be doing right now.

Get more sleep
One of my major tasks is to get more sleep. I'm so used to waking up early that on my days off I seem to wake up early too, the only problem with this is when I know I have a day off, I usually stay up till the early hours of the morning watching episode after episode on Netflix, this needs to stop. My aim is to get at least 8 hours sleep a night with out fail, lets see how long this lasts.

Eat completely clean
If you read my blog you know how much I love to eat clean, although I can sometimes get really stuck and have no idea what to eat and what to do, like after summer and loving life, eating what I want and drinking way too much alcohol I've found it really hard to get my head back in the game.
My aim is to eat a completely clean diet, no excuses with one cheat meal a week so I have something to aim for.

Drink more water
Last but not least, drink more water. I'm probably one of the worst people to drink enough water ever, I'm lucky if I drink a litre, I need to start drinking at least 2.5l a day so I can lose weight and feel better in myself, also my skin is having major breakouts recently so I'm hoping this will help with that.

Do you have any early New Years resolutions?

Claris Daily Energiser Cleansing Gel...

Wednesday, 11 November 2015


If you read my blog you will know that I love to try out new cleansers. This Clarins daily wash was actually one that I picked up at duty free for my mum on the way back from Barcelona, but she's useless with beauty products so she gave it to me. 
It was quite expensive for a small bottle of face wash but it was so worth it, I bought it from duty free for about £10.50 but I think you can get it in boots for £13. I love this face wash, its so kind to my skin and I usually have really sensitive skin so it's so nice to find a good cleanser, which is why I rarely spend a lot of money on one.

I use about a pea size of it every morning, as it's an energising face wash it makes my skin look so awake and healthy, I absolutely love it, it makes my skin bright and actually makes me look alive on my early morning starts.

Have you tried out any new cleansers recently?

French Toast With Strawberry And Lime Sauce

Monday, 9 November 2015


I usually eat a completely clean diet but once a week I like to treat myself to a cheat day. This is one  of my favourite breakfasts to make on cheat day, although you can get around if you don't like to have a cheat day, for example you can change the sugar to coconut sugar to make it clean, although it is always good to have a cheat day, it gives your metabolism a little spike to make it work a little bit harder instead of it getting too used to your usual routine.

For the strawberry and lime sauce:
Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 Cups of fresh chopped strawberries
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Cornflour
  • 1/2 Fresh lime juice
  • Pinch of salt (tiny)
Method
  1. Put all the ingredients into a saucepan and heat on a low heat, simmer for about 10 minutes continuously string until the sugar has dissolved and its a syrup consistency
  2. While its cooked leave to the side still in the pan, once your toast is cooked add to a little jug
For the toast:
Ingredients
  • 1/2 Tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp milk
  • 1/4 Tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 Slices bread (I like fresh sourdough but you can use any that you like)
Method
  1. Add the cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, eggs, milk and vanilla extract to a bowl and whisk together
  2. Once mixed pour the mixture into a flatter dish, like a flan tray or something
  3. Add the butter to a frying pan and melt
  4. While the butter is melting, dip the bread slices into the mixture and cover all over 
  5. Add the bread to the frying pan and cook until both sides are golden brown
  6. Tower up the toast and pour over your strawberry sauce and ENJOY.

Chili Avocado, Halloumi and Hummus Toast

Wednesday, 4 November 2015

In my eyes there's nothing better than some avocado toast for that quick but filling lunch. But sometimes it can get a little bit boring so I've created this beauty for  a little twist.

Ingredients
  • 4 Slices of halloumi
  • 1 Whole organic avocado
  • 4 Slices fresh rye bread 
  • 1/2 Fresh lime
  • 1 tsp Dried chili flakes
  • 1/2 tsp Rock salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 1 tsp Hummus (per slice)
  • 1 tsp Coconut oil
  • Dribble of balsamic vinegar
Method
  1. First up prepare the avocado. Cut up into cubes and add to a bowl, squeeze in the lime, add salt, add pepper and add the chilis and mix, put to the side.
  2. While thats to the side, add the coconut oil to a pan and melt, then add the halloumi and cook
  3. While thats cooking add the rye bread to your toaster and toast lightly.
  4. When toasted, spread the hummus on to each slice 
  5. Spoon on the avocado and leave in chunks
  6. Once the halloumi is nice and brown add on the top
  7. Dribble the balsamic vinegar over the top, not too much just a little, and enjoy!

Original Source Daily Scrub, Blood Orange...

Friday, 23 October 2015


I've been using Original Source products for ages now, they're so affordable and they're so amazingly scented, they're also vegan which is a major yes in my books!
Although I love their usual body washes when it gets to this time of the year my skin gets so dry and it needs a good ol' scrub. They're are so many body scrubs I'm majorly obsessed with but some are quite expensive and having to use them every day would just rinse my bank account of money, so when I came across this daily scrub from my favourite high street brand, I had to snap it up.

The Original Source Daily Scrub in Blood Orange is a very subtle scrub so its perfect for the everyday scrub in the shower, the sent is so amazing such a strong orange scent, I love it. It's made with all natural ingredients and the scrub is made with grounded up almonds so it's not good if you have a nut allergy.
This is honestly my favourite scrub for everyday, whats yours?

Autumn Essentials...

Monday, 19 October 2015


Its officially the best time of the year, I love this weather because it just reminds me of the start of Christmas, well in my mind anyway. When it comes to this time of the year my skin usually needs a lot more care than in the summer, my skin goes dry, I break out and my make up always looks a little dull. So these are just a few of my essentials for this chilly autumn time.

As soon as this weather hits its like my tea tastebuds automatically change, I never fancy normal tea or a green tea, I always want a cosy hot chocolate or a cinnamon tea and this tea certainly ticks that box. I'm so happy I could actually find a tea like this because I'm allergic to caffeine so I find it really hard to find a really nice cosy herbal tea that doesn't contain even a tiny bit. The tea is literally Autumn time in a mug I'm obsessed with it, not only that but its zero cals so whats better than that.

If you read my blog you will know that very recently I wrote a post about my favourite Autumn lipsticks so head on over to this post to find out more about why this lippy is in my faves.

I am obsessed with nude nails! I just think they go with everything and they just look so chic, to be honest this isn't really an Autumn essential, it's more like a 24/7 every season kind of essential.
At the moment I've been obsessing over these two colours, the first is Boujour's nail enamel in the colour 'Beige', one of the main reasons I'm loving this at the moment is the brush and staying power. I love that the brush on this nail varnish is so big it fits perfectly to either side of my nails and covers the whole thing in one brush, and I usually find that quite hard as I have acrylic nails so they're very long. Another thing about this colour is the staying power, it's amazing, it doesn't chip at all and as I said before I have acrylics I usually find that the ends of my nails, the colour kind of wears away and I have to top up a lot but this one doesn't do it at all I love it!

My second nail love at the moment is the O.P.I nail liquor in 'You're So Vain-illa', also love the names of these varnishes. I wrote about this nail varnish ages ago on an earlier post of mine, but I'm still obsessed with it. Its such a thick colour that stays on forever, I love.

This season is the perfect time for those dark sparkly eyeshadows. I love wearing eyeshadows on a night out or a nice meal, I don't usually incorporate them into my everyday make up routine, mostly because I just can't be bothered with putting it on just to sit in a lecture all day.
This shadow is just the perfect colour for everything, when I use a lighter colour on my lid its the perfect colour to put in my crease but it's also perfect to wear on its own if I want to go for the darker look. It's so nicely subtly sparkly too which I love, I hate wearing a shadow that looks like I just dunked my head into a bowl of glitter, I like it looking subtle in the light shimmer. Perf.

Last but not least one of my all time forever favourites is this Lush face mask. When it gets to this time of year my face can get so dry and I can get breakouts galore which is the worst. I usually find that using a face mask maybe twice a week really makes my skin wake up and feel alive which is what I really need. I love all of the lush face masks as they're all natural and you can really tell when you use them they're defo my fave ones to use when my skins looking a little on the dull side.
What are your Autumn Essentials?

My Top 3 Favourite Bloggers...

Monday, 12 October 2015


One of my favourite pastimes as a blogger is reading other peoples blogs. If you see me on my phone I'll most likely be sitting on Bloglovin, saving post after post obsessively, so I thought what better way to share my love of blogging than to share my love of bloggers with you. I wanted to just share my top 3 faves, because lets face it, we would all be here for hours if I shared them all, they're not in order of numbers just listed, I love them all equally hehe.

1.) That Pommie Girl
I am obsessed with Sarah Ashcroft's blog. Her blog is mainly fashion but she does do a bit of travel and inspo posts which I also love.
Her fashion sense is pretty much my exact style I wish I could dress like, if I had the money and body. I would honestly tell anyone who wants some style inspo about her blog, in fact I actually have told a few people about it. She has one of those blogs I will check everyday just to see what new clothing items she's got that week, I've ended up spending an illegal amount of money because of her blog, thanks Sarah haha. Love it.

2.) Mollie Manning
Mollie is actually the person who originally got me into blogging in the first place. She mainly blogs about beauty, so her blog is always the first one I go to if I need to get a review on a product before I buy it. Her photography is so clean and so perfect, her use of lighting and positioning is just so engaging, I love her blog.

3.) Kate La Vie
Formally known as Gh0stparties, I've been reading her blog since way before I was even a blogger myself. Her interior posts make me so sad that I don't have my own place, all she makes me want to do is go home shopping and fill a flat with coper and everything her style. I love her photography too, so unique and engaging, so beautiful. Her travel posts also make me want to jump onto the nearest plane and jet off for a week or two.

Who are your favourite bloggers at the moment?

Sunday Inspo #4

Getting That Summer Tan In Autumn...

Friday, 9 October 2015


Does anyone else get so down in the dumps when it comes to Autumn? Now I love it when it gets nice and cozy and you can just curl up in front of the TV with a hot chocolate, but I still want to look like I've been in the Bahamas for 2 weeks.
I was never really a massive fan of fake tan, it was just something about having to exfoliate and apply it all trying not to get orange hands, I just thought it was so much effort, but recently I just feel like I need my tan back! 

The first product I have been obsessing over is this tanning mist. It's so easy to use, I make sure I moisturise my dry bits, like my knees, elbows and ankles, and then I just spray it on my body and then work it into my skin with a tanning mitt. One of the reason I love this tan so much is because it's instant, so you can see the colour straight away so you know if you're a streaky mess or not (which before this, I was).
I usually buy the colour medium because I think it matches my skin perfectly and doesn't make the tan look fake, it looks nice and natural. I only use this fake tan on my body because I think it looks a little bit too harsh on my face, and I sometimes find that if I'm having a bad skin day I think it gathers a bit round my spots so I tend to use something different on my face.

This is the fake tan I always use on my face. I don't really like to use it on my body because I don't think it gives a good enough tan, I like using it as a moisturiser on my body when I already have a tan, but to give me a tan isn't really the best thing. If anyone has ever smelt cocoa butter you'll know that the smell is amazing, it was the whole reason I bought it in the first place but I'm so glad I did.
This is quite a light colour tan so its perfect for that natural glow on the face, it also doesn't gather around spots or dry patches which is perfect for a face tan, I rub this in with a mitt too just for perfect coverage.

What are your favourite Autumn tan essentials?

Essentials For The Perfect Cozy Night In...

Monday, 5 October 2015


I love to go out clubbing and partying but I sometimes have those days where all I want to do is cosy up in front of the TV all night long, but of course I need my cozy night in essentials.

Facemask
This is one of my most important essentials to one of these nights. Most of the time when I feel like having one of these nights, it's usually when I feel really run down or it could be that time of the month so when I'm feeling like this my skin is one of the major things that feels crappy.
I have two favourite facemasks at the moment first being Nip+Fab Cleansing Fix this isn't actually really a face mask its more a cleanser but you can also use it as a face mask, don't wanna give too much away as I'm going to write a post about. My other fave at the mo is Lush's Catastrophe Cosmetic mask, this mask is amazing, its so natural and works wonders with my skin, especially when its feeling a bit run down from a heavy week. 

Movies
This is the most important thing you need! Getting curled up in front of the TV with a cheesy chick flick under a massive duvet is the best thing. My fave movies for this kinda night are 'The Other Woman', 'Mean Girls' (obviously) and anything else that makes me cringe with happiness will work too. 

Chocolate
Well how else would you have a lazy night? Especially if it's that time of the month. When I was younger my mum would go to the shops and buy loads of random little chocolate bars and cut them all up and it would be like a surprise bowl of goodies, so this is what I always do when I want to just chill and pig out, especially with the Dairy Milk.

This is really my idea of heaven, such a chilled night, perfect.

What do you like to have for a cozy night in?

For some reason, I find it so nice to look at a load of black and white images, its one of my fave types of photography, so I thought I would share my fave ones of the week that I've stumbled across.
