Beauty Haul from Chemist-4-U.*

I spend a large proportion of my day online browsing beauty products. So when I was given the opportunity to turn browsing into shopping, I couldn't resist. I was given £30 to spend on Chemist-4-U, which was extremely exciting for me as I'd seen one of my favourite bloggers, Jenny, get a load of goodies when she worked with them on her own postChemist-4-u is an online pharmacy that sells beauty, skincare, toiletries, fragrances, dental and sexual wellbeing products, while also offering an online prescription service, making it possible to have your medications delivered straight to your door. Pretty much everything you could possibly need in one place - ideal!

Bourjois Holiday VoxBox from Influenster.*

I was recently extremely lucky to be sent a VoxBox from Influenster. Influenster is a platform where members can review products, share photos and find out what makeup and beauty items are hits and misses. Influenster often sends out VoxBoxes - a box of products that are gifted to members for review purposes. I've been an Influenster member for a while now but this was my first box. When I heard it was Bourjois, I was delighted. And when I finally got a peek at what was inside, it was definitely worth the wait!

Edinburgh Christmas Foodies Festival.*

Last week I got to indulge in two of my favourite things - eating and blogging - when I was invited along to the Edinburgh Christmas Foodies Festival. The Foodies Festival is in its tenth year and is the UK's biggest celebration of food, drink and wellbeing. The festival travels to ten different locations throughout the year, and over a weekend showcases a host of local and national brands, demonstrations by well-known chefs and bakers, and masterclasses in how to find the perfect tipple to complement your culinary creations.

Glossybox November 2017.

I know it's November but is there any need in how cold it's getting? I'm freezing while typing this. Winter really is coming, and frankly, I'm ready for it. This month's Birchbox was fairly average, will Glossybox be any better?

Birchbox November 2017.

As soon as Halloween was over the temperature here dropped. I am constantly cold now and I've bought many fluffy fabrics to combat it (including the grey tartan throw in these pictures). I don't actually mind the sun setting at like 4pm or the fact that the countdown to Christmas has already begun, but I do feel a bit sorry for November. It's quite a 'meh' month (no offence November babies) - after the autumnal excitement of October, this month tends to get overlooked in favour of December. But will the same be said for the products in my beauty boxes?

Five Relationship Lessons I'd Give My Teenage Self.

As much as I do tend to spend a lot of time worrying or fretting over things I can't change, I really have learnt a lot about relationships and people in the last 15 years (FIFTEEN YEARS since I became a teenager, grim). When I look back at it there are a few lessons I wish I could give to my younger self about dealing with others...

Glen Etive.

I don't live in the Highlands and it's pretty much the most unfair thing that's ever happened to me. So instead I have to make do with forcing my husband to drive me up to beautiful places whenever I can. The issue with making a two- or three-hour drive to somewhere pretty is that when the weather inevitably changes (this is Scotland after all) you have to battle through it.
