Read/Wear/Listen/Want - January


I don't mean to brag, but 31 days into 2016 and I've already discovered something pretty life-changing. In recent years, it's become increasingly difficult for me to see a book through to an end. I felt pretty embarrassed to be constantly adding to my list of 'books I want to read', but never crossing any off. Until now. One word: audiobooks. Now driving to work, folding laundry and tidying my room can all be done to the soundtrack of whatever I've been meaning to read. This month I've already finished one book (Mindy Kaling's 'Why Not Me', in case you were wondering), and it feels utterly satisfying. A whole book! I'm sad to say this, but I can't remember the last time that happened. Here's to a year of crossing more books off my list!

Okay I know I *literally* just said that I'm going to be focusing my posts on ways to save money like one post ago and hauls can have quite the opposite effect on spending restraints BUT...:

Fabuleusely Frugal: Drugstore Skincare Favourites Under £5

UK Boots Drugstore Skincare Picks, Garnier Moisture Match, Simply Sensitive, Simple Kind To Skin

Let's face it, December has left our bank accounts somewhat...barren. With that in mind, I've decided to theme my next few posts around staying thrifty and making your dollar go just a little bit further.

Starting with skincare; it's pretty easy to spend a small fortune on supposedly 'miracle' products that promise to give you Instagram-filter skin IRL. Hence, I'm always pretty dubious when it comes to skincare as it can vary so drastically between everyone's individual skin types, and I'd quite frankly rather splash out on say, a lipstick (a less riskier purchase by comparison).

[CLOSED!] 3rd Blog-iversary Giveaway! Custom Tote Bag, Maybelline, Caudalie & Korean Face Masks!


At some point last year, my blog quietly reached its 3rd birthday! As my archive is a somewhat dubious indicator of my first post (I've long since deleted my first attempts at blogging, and for the best too I think), I decided now was as good a time as ever to give back to my followers! Plus, with my newly launched Facebook page & YouTube channel, I'm going to be honest & say I'm feeling pretty celebratory about all things blogg-y right now!

Find out what I'm giving away & how to enter after the jump!
