Working & blogging

I do work full time as well as blogging and I've been blogging for almost a year now (watch this space). I've been working full time for almost 2 years now, I think I've accumulated a few tips over this past 11 months. That's what I'm going to talk to you about today. Hopefully, you'll be able to fit these around your lifestyle.

Take advantage of your day off
Taking a day just plan posts, write, take photos, edit, take part in a Twitter chat. Just do what you need to do, Instead of just leaving everything last minute which I've been known for.

Laur recommends: blogs #1

I promised this post ages ago and it's about time I actually published it. Here are some of my current favourite blogs, I couldn't fit all of my favourites into one post. Otherwise, we'd be here all day so I thought I'd just post about my favourite blogs from time to time.

So here's my 5 current favourite blogs for you to check out.

Book buzzwords

I originally saw this Little Book Owl book tube, all about her book buzzwords. What makes you pick a book?  I found this harder than I originally thought.

Gone Girl made me fell in love with Thriller books, I love not knowing what comes next and not actually guessing what happens

Love Me Beauty: April 2017

My first Love Me Beauty post if you haven't heard of this subscription service. It's definitely worth checking out. With a total of 13.95 monthly, we get 60 credits to spend in the shop. The fact you can pick what you want in your little makeup bag is awesome No products will go to waste, products you're actually interested in

Oh yeah, how cute are these little bags, so much better than a box. I'd get more use out of a makeup bag. Check LMB out here.

Getting out of a funk

Do ever just feel as if you don't enjoy the things you used to? Or feel yourself? This is how I felt these past few weeks, I couldn't have been annoyed to do anything. Blog, watch YouTube, write in my bullet journal, nothing.

I wanted to let you guys know, how I got out of feeling this way. I'm still getting myself out this funk. But I'm definitely on my way to feeling myself again.

Top 20 under £20

I wanted to do this for a while now and I finally whittled it all down to my top 20 under £20. I could've picked a whole lot more products not going to lie. 

Have you tried any of these products before? 

Shall we get stuck into it shall, it's me you all know once I get started I don't stop rambling lol. 

Book haul

So if there's one thing you need to know about me, I have a slight shopping problem. Especially when it come to books and makeup. I've done a lot of makeup hauls, so today you guessed a book haul. These are some books that I've been eyeing up for ages.

Check out my book tour here, if you want to have a look at what other books I have,

If there's one thing you can learn from this post don't go onto Amazon after a day of drinking. Wee surprise in the post for me, filled with books. The majority of these books are from that order apart from two of the books, that I recently picked up.


I think it's about time for another doggie post, there isn't enough on the internet. Don't forget you can catch up and here the story of my pets down below.

After Snoop passed away, we still had Fizz but the house was still very quiet. We were always used to having the two dogs in our house. So Missy came along, she came along at the right time for us. Her past owners didn't have the time for her as they thought they would, she was only 2 at the time.

Makeup evolution

I saw this on Sophie Foster's channel, makeup today vs past makeup. I thought it would be fun to take my own spin on it. Throwback Lauren's makeup is all eyeliner and eyebrows, nothing much has changed, to be honest. I just learnt how to somewhat do both, I try anyway.

The right side of the face, makeup now. The left side of the face is the throwback makeup. I know there doesn't seem to be an awful lot of difference, trust me there is.
