This palette was a lot more out of my comfort zone as it has actual colour!! not just browns, taupes and bronze but bright blues and pinks ...woah right!? - I just couldn't resist, it looks so pleasing to the eye and holds a whopping 20 colours.

When it comes to phone cases I am pretty fussy.. I don't want crazy bling or 3D animals on the back of my phone; although that trend is very popular with cases at the moment, and don't get me wrong they can look cute, it's just not me and I don't find them very practical.
I look for something chic and stylish, after all my phone is always out so I want it to look good too, I do find it really hard to find a case I like in my local shops.
That's when I discovered the site Iconemesis, I don't think there is a case on their site that I don't like. They have something for most tastes - Floral, Edgy, Cute and Chic and they aren't tacky what-so-ever.

LollyRocket is a locally run business located in Northamptonshire, they did have a lovely and very popular little store in my town centre that sold the most quirky, vintage looking items for your home. Unfortunately they sold up and its now under another name, but I was chuffed to see that they now have their very own online store.When I spotted on their Instagram page that they where hand-making candles, I was all over it! you should see the amazing scent range they do, its impressive. They even stock candles that are specifically for gifts, such as the ones labelled 'New Home' and 'Thank You' - it's such a lovely and unique idea.
I have always loved accessories, hence my job working with them for a good 6 years before I left for maternity leave.
You could have the most plain outfit on, add a few special pieces of jewellery then it all comes together and can completely transform your look.
I don't know if anyone else follows this rule, but I like to either have a statement necklace on OR earrings - not both, just because I find it can be a little too much sometimes.
So I have for you a mixture of two stunning pairs of earrings, from one of my favourite accessory companies at the moment - Ultimate Collections.

This months Birchbox theme is Cosy at Home, and boy is it a good one! I really love how Birchbox incorporate a theme to go with the products each month. The Cosy at Home edition includes a load of essentials that are perfect for that pamper night in; Just because sometimes all you want to do is relax in your huge, snuggly dressing gown after a hard days work with a good book or your favourite film.

If you follow me on twitter you would have heard me whining about feeling ill...again! I'm still pretty iffy now but trying to solder on and keep my baby blog running haha.I didn't want to post unless my heart was in it really, so I decided to write this post all about my Sick-Day Essentials that have been making me feel a little more 'human' lately, and if your unfortunately in the same boat it may give you some ideas too.

I received a small sample of this One Love Organics Skin Saviour in a Birchbox a good few months back, I loved it that much I savoured every last drop. I even kept the pot so that I wouldn't forget to re purchase the full size.
I had never heard of the brand One Love Organics since trying it through Birchbox, and this is exactly why I think these beauty boxes are a great concept.. just because you get to discover new products, and brands that you would never have normally come across.
