How To Prepare For The Holiday Season As A Blogger

The festive season is in full swing, with some of us getting snow! We've had about a foot in good old Coventry and it hasn't stopped, remember to always drive slowly in the snow!!!!
So today I wanted to share with you my top tips on how to prepare for the holiday season as a blogger.


Plan ahead and take your photos at the weekend, we all know the dark evening struggle for bloggers

Try to make your posts festive, even if that is just adding the word 'Christmas' in here and there.

Make the most of the snow if you have any! Bloggers posts in the snow is a standard and makes your blog even more fun.


If you struggle to write your posts try doing a little every evening, and write two posts a week - that way you'll always be prepared! 

Struggling with ideas? Pinterest is the source of all fabulously festive ideas!!

Add reminders to your calendar for a certain time everyday that you can dedicate to a kick ass Instagram.

How to Full Proof your Dinner Party

How to Full Proof your Dinner Party 

Dinner party season is upon us and we're getting just a tiny bit excited for Christmas, so today I wanted to run through all the best ways to full proof your dinner party. The best ways to create minimal washing up, and how to get the ultimate cosy feels.


Plastic plates and cutlery will be your best friend when it comes to an easy clean up!

Want to be warm yet festive but cater to all? Get 2 slow cookers and fill one with Mulled wine and the other with Hot Chocolate! You can even do a little station for the kids to pimp their chocolates

Soft furnishings like bean bags, blankets and cushion corners are an easy comfy yet fun way to get everyone comfy


Christmas films on in the background are a super easy way to continue the festive theme without your Aunt Jane blasting out Jingle Bells in full swing

Jars filled with battery operated fairy lights are an easy and super safe way to make your home cosy!


Grab and go foods are a party must, no one wants a full sit down meal unless your being formal! So cheese's are always a good idea 

Use unexpected items in your décor. Think a vase filled with cranberries or ball ornaments!

Don't rely on red and green to show off, try mixing metals into your decor for a more luxe look!

This weeks post was meant to be a skincare one but I feel like it should be a motivational inspirational one, so instead today I want to just show your my favourite quotes and the ways I stay inspired to be positive.

Arbonne Skincare | Sample Review *

Arbonne Skincare | Sample Review *

I was recently gifted the Arbonne RE9 Advanced Skincare sample line and not knowing anything about the products or the brand I delved straight in! This little pack is claimed to be the best at home facial, so keep reading to find out my thoughts ... 


Arbonne creates products that are pure botanically based ingredients in scientifically tested products, helping to encourage pure but balanced skin. They combine the best of nature with leading techniques to create the best ever-evolving products. 
In this sample pack you get 5 miniatures to create your at home facial step by step, now each product is numbered so there's no chance of any mix ups! 



Staring off with the facial cleanser to clean the skin of any impurities, following on with the toner to give the skin a boost and then onto the serum. This is the start up of creating your perfect base and will help to rejuvenate your skin alongside the other products! 
Next up, is the day and night cream to help to boost your skin, followed by the eye cream to help prevent premature wrinkles. 
Following all the steps in the pack, I can honestly say it's literally like having an at home facial! My skin felt like new after, completely new, it felt retextured and smooth but rehydrated at the same time!
