A MOISTURISING AND MATTIFYING PRIMER?! THE ORDINARY

I don't often reach for make-up primers. I find they either make my skin feel oily or dry and don't do a lot for filling in my pores or keeping my make-up in place. Primers just don't excite me, to be honest. I'm not sure why I decided to try The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer, but I did.

IKEA POÄNG Chair DIY & Other Hacks

About three months ago, myself and Matt moved into a gorgeous apartment. It's both of ours' first proper flat - no student digs or house sharing - therefore we've both been super into making the flat our home. Many Ikea trips, lots of house plants, and some DIY later, we're getting there! I thought I'd share how I updated this corner of our living room. It was looking a little bland, and I wanted to add in the dark blue/navy shade that is our accent colour.

PizzaStorm Summer Party

Last week I was invited along to PizzaStorm Summer Party in Eldon Square, Newcastle. I'm not the biggest pizza fan, but myself and Alice decided to pop along and join in the party.

Funday | A Bit of a Red Obsession?

As I mentioned in my Slogan Tee post, I can't get enough of red right now. I may have just had a delivery of a gorgeous red Fila tee. Oops. I first saw this New Look jumper on Kate La Vie. I fell in love with the colour and the statement font. It's such a versatile piece, too. I wore it to an event a couple of weeks ago with skinny jeans and black loafers, a great throw-on outfit.

The Purple Bear | Newcastle

A couple of weeks ago I was in Newcastle city centre doing a spot of shopping and decided to go for lunch. My Mam spotted The Purple Bear sign which was advertising a £5 lunch deal served until 5pm, so we decided to give it a go. The Purple Bear is situated on Prudhoe Chare - just off Northumberland Street, next to the entrance of Eldon Square.

Not Another Slogan Tee | Isn't it funny how trends work?

Slogan tees. They're everywhere, aren't they? Especially those with red writing emblazoned across the chest. It's funny how trends work. Not that long ago I just wasn't into t-shirts, they weren't really my style. But now? Now I have to stop myself from buying yet another grey t-shirt with a red slogan across the chest. Who decides what's going to be in fashion? And why do we all jump on the bandwagon so quickly?

The Essentials I'll be Taking to Kendal Calling Festival

When this post goes live, I'll be getting sorted to drive over to Kendal for Kendal Calling Festival with my best friend and her son. As I'm writing this, I'm listening to a playlist I put together on Spotify with all the artists I'm excited to see - you can check that out here. As I was packing up my bag, I thought I'd put together a post about the Festival Essentials I'll be taking with me. So here they are...
