Spectrum Noir Colorista Haul*


I have to confess; I am a sucker for an adult colouring book. I wasn't so sure at first, thinking it was just a bit of a craze that would soon pass by, but as someone who suffers with anxiety problems I find colouring books a way to relax and unwind. There is something so satisfying with bringing someones drawings to life and is a great way to chill out after a stressful day.

The Colorista range by Spectrum Noir is a 'revolutionary colouring system' created by the team at Crafter's Companion. The range is designed to make colouring easy for everyone. Whether you're a complete beginner or a colouring expert, the specially designed markers and pencils are the perfect addition to a craft lover's collection. I got the chance to try out the Colorista range for myself and see if the brand could really bring adult colouring to a new level!

'Station Eleven' by Emily St. John Mandel


I finally finished Station Eleven. Station Eleven, by Emily St. John Mandel, is a hybrid book of post-apocalypse science fiction, people and relationships, and popular culture. Sounds messy, I know, but Station Eleven tells the intriguing stories of the survivors (and the ones less fortunate) of the Georgia Flu pandemic, and how the world is affected after the global disaster.

Station Eleven begins with the death of famous actor Arthur Leander. Shortly after Arthur's death, the world faces a deathly outbreak of the virus Georgia Flu that spreads rapidly across the globe leaving survivors few and far between. Station Eleven explores the lives of people surviving the world during and after the outbreak, and if I had to describe it as something, I'd say it is kind of the Love Actually of sci-fi books (in a sense that you're following lots of character's stories that intertwine with each other - does make sense?!).

LUSH Pumpkin Bath Bomb review


As I said in my last LUSH Halloween post, I've been quite impressed with the huge selection Lush have offered us this Halloween! It's normally a really small collection, overshadowed by the Christmas range, so I'm pretty pleased to see so many Halloween bath bombs for my collection!

Today I'm talking about Pumpkin Bath Bomb. This bath bomb promises pumpkin pie smelling bath time goodness, and is a brand new one for Lush so I was looking forward to trying this one out.

Paul Mitchell Ultimate Colour Repair Collection


Anyone with coloured hair will know how much of a pain it can be to stay on top of your colour and maintain a fresh-looking dye. I have been a bit of a hair dye addict for years now and the older I get, the more aware I am of the damage the chemical dyes actually do to your hair.

I find myself leaning towards products specially formulated for hair that has been dyed, so when I saw the Paul Mitchell Ultimate Colour Repair it was safe to say I was pretty intrigued by it all. One of the things that caught my eye was the fact that the products boasted 'quinoa' as on of it's key ingredients - something I'd never known was good for hair!

LUSH Monsters' Ball Bath Bomb review


It's safe to say I was pretty shocked, in a good way, when I saw how many Halloween bath bombs Lush Cosmetics had released this year. They usually keep it pretty low key and have a couple of products for the season but this year I was pretty pleased a wide range of spooky goods on offer!

This little thing here is called Monsters' Ball. It was love at first sight for me because, shallow as it sounds, he looks so darn cute. He kinda has that Mike Wazowski look about him with his big, chocolate button eyeball and I will pretty much be suckered into buying any bath product that has a cute face (I'm lookin at you Butterbear). So, despite being cute, was Monsters' Ball any good once I threw him to his watery grave in my bath tub?

Turning 24

Enjoy my childhood throwback,,, Also why is my Christmas dinner red?!
Somehow, after a year of complete shit being thrown at me from all angles, I made it to 24 years of age. And what a year it has been!

I always think birthdays are a good time to reflect on your achievements over the past year and this birthday I honestly feel really accomplished - a total turnaround to how I felt last year on my birthday. Last year I was happy enough, but scared and holding on tightly to the last bits of my sinking ship of a relationship. I poured everything into that person, so when it ended I was devastated.
