Wow it's monthly favorites time again! Doesn't feel that long since I wrote my last one! Crazy! As you can see from the title of this post I've decided to combine both beauty and non-beauty favorites in this post as I didn't go out too much and I didn't really tend to shop much this month which is very unusual for me. There are a few things in the non-beauty favorites that I wasn't able to photograph either so bear with me whilst I try and do my best to describe them for you. Now that the ramble is over let me get back to the point of this post which will be a long one so grab a cuppa and enjoy! 

BEAUTY

Naked 3 Palette: I go through stages of loving and hating this palette for some reason. Sometimes I absolutely love the looks you can create from this and then other times I get really frustrating and I'm just not keen however this month I have obviously been loving it. My favorite color to wear from the palette has been Buzz which I find is a gorgeous rose gold shade. I think it is so pretty and really compliments my skin tone and I find it's a shade I can wear no matter what I'm doing or where I'm going. I also find that the shadows are really buttery and easy to work with from this palette. It's just perfect.

Nuxe Rev De Miel Lipbalm: This month I have had such incredibly dry lips. I have been very dehydrated this month and I have also been suffering from a really bad cold so the past few days my lips have been really flakey and horrible. This little pot has made that all better though. This is such an incredible lipbalm. I apply it before I go to bed and in the morning when I wake up and it's just kept my lips dry all day. I also love the honey scent to it as well. If you haven't tried this yet I'd highly recommend it. It'll be a godsend this winter.

Real Techniques Powder Brush: First of all I'm sorry for the state of my brush in the photo. I literally took these photos in the morning just after I had done my make up so I didn't really had time to wash it. This was one of the only brushes from Real Techniques that I hadn't actually tried yet. I know, I know where have I been...however I absolutely love it. I love how fluffy it is and how it covers your face and just feels really soft as you are applying powder. It took me a while to get used to the size of the brush as I'm used to the slightly smaller sizes however I absolutely love it and definitely makes the process a lot quicker in the morning.

MAC's New York Apple Lipstick: I did a review of this lipstick the other day which you can find HERE so I won't go into it too much. I will say though that this lipstick is so incredibly moisturizing, has great color pay off, is long lasting and will suit most skin tones as well. I also love the deep pinky burgundy shade as I think it's perfect for this time of year. It's definitely not a lipstick I see mentioned a lot in MAC collection videos or blog posts but I would definitely highly recommend it. 

Nails Inc 'Kensington High Street' Nail Polish: Oh looky here, another burgundy product. Oops. I told you I'm a tad obsessed with this color for the autumn. I'm currently sitting in a burgundy shirt and shoes from New Look too. When it comes to my nails I have an awful habit of being a nail biter. It's not good at all however this shade has made me want to grow them and have pretty nails. I'm quite restricted with what colors I can wear on my nails thanks to my job however this is just the right color so I'll definitely be wearing this non-stop throughout the autumn/winter season.

'Per Una Opulence' Perfume: I've been obsessed with perfumes and scents recently and this perfume is actually a perfume my Mum uses but I just love the scent so much. It's so fruity and floral and pretty and the scent lasts all day. I don't really know how else to describe it really but it's a really beautiful fragrance.

NON-BEAUTY

The 'I Can't Sleep' Coloring Book: One of my favorite things to do in life is to color and draw pictures even though I'm useless at drawing. I just find it so therapeutic and I was particularly drawn to this one after seeing the lovely Jess over at Coppergarden mention it in a recent favorites video. As someone who suffers with insomnia quite badly I'm always on the look out for things to help relax me more and I've found it definitely helps. I love making things look pretty and hey, you're never to old to color! 

Journal: Another favorite thing to do is write in my journal. I've kept a journal since I was very young and I will admit occasionally I go through stages of not writing in anything at all and then I just write down everything I'm thinking and feeling and also document everything amazing that happens to me. It's just such a special thing to do and I love reading back on it when I feel sad as it always reminds me that my life is pretty damn amazing and even though I moan I'm extremely lucky. Forgive the sappiness but it's true! 

365 Blog Topic Ideas by Dana Fox: It's no secret that things are slowing down on my blog at the moment due to the fact I have a new job and recently when I've had days off or evenings off when I do want to blog I've just felt so unmotivated. If that makes sense. Like I really want to type up a post but then I lose all motivation or I don't know how to word it and it's not something I really want to force so I've just been leaving it. However this book has been a godsend the past few days as I've got my motivation and love for blogging back and I'm super happy with the content I've produced lately even though it might seem a bit samey. If you haven't got this book and suffer with bloggers block I'd highly recommend it. There's a blog post idea for every day of the year! You're pretty much sorted! 

Gold Mesh Bracelet & Pandora Rose Gold Charms: I turned 24 a month ago and unfortunately my parents were not at home so I didn't get to see them on my birthday as they were on holiday in France. However when they came back they gave me this beautiful gold mesh bracelet which is just stunning. The gold mesh covers these little crystals and it just looks stunning when the light shines on them. I've been wearing them non-stop. Recently I decided to treat myself to some rose gold charms for my pandora bracelet and I've literally been in love. I absolutely love them. I'm planning on treating myself to a ring when payday comes around but the rose gold charms are just so incredible beautiful. I got the little rose gold butterfly and its just so incredibly beautiful and sparkly. 

'Smash' The TV Series: If you love musical theatre and singing then you will love this TV show. I absolutely love it. It basically follows the lives of a group of people trying to make it in to the musical theatre industry and what it takes to put on a show and get it to broadway. It's incredibly eye opening and really inspirational and I just love it. The music in it is just stunning and the talent on this show is just incredible. I'd highly recommend it. There are only two seasons as sadly it got cancelled but I love it! 

Edges The Musical: It's no secret that I'm a musical theatre fan so when I found out 1/5 of the musical theatre boy band Collabro had started his on productions company to put on a show for three weeks I was instantly intrigued. I absolutely love this show. I've seen it twice already and I just can't get the songs out of my head. It's an amazing show. It's ending it's three week run this Saturday which saddens me as I absolutely love it and the talent is just incredible. I am however going to see it two more times. I'm not obsessed or anything I promise. 


Phew, that was a long post. Definitely longer than I thought it would be but I love reading posts like this and I know other people to. I think it's a great way to find out about someone and also discover new products and items you probably wouldn't consider otherwise so I hope you all enjoyed this. Let me know in the comments below if there's anything in this list that you love too! I love finding out I've something in common with people!

September Beauty & Non-Beauty Round Up

What are your favorites of this month?
Hugs and Kisses

As I'm sure you all know by now I'm a huge Autumn/Winter fan. I absolutely love this time of year because X Factor is back, candles can be lit a lot more, everything is salty caramel related and it means that it's a lot closer to Christmas! Yeah I love it. However because I've been so busy with work lately (I literally have not had more than one day off in god knows how long) my blog has kinda taken a back seat. However I thought I would sit down and talk to you about all my beauty, fashion and a few random favorites for this time of year. ENJOY!

BEAUTY
Lips: When it comes to lipsticks I am actually incredibly fussy. I find it so hard to find a lipstick that actually suits my skin tone and when I do find one that I think suits my skin tone there's that little voice in the back of my head that says 'Are you sure you can pull that off?'. Just me? Anyway three of my favorite lip products to wear in the autumn months include Revlon's Berry Smoothie, Sleek's Cranberry and MACs New York Apple which I reviewed last week over on my blog and haven't stopped wearing. I just love all these lip products. To me they just seem a lot more balmy than actual lipsticks and I just love them for this time of year as the color pay off is just beautiful. 

Blushes:  I absolutely love that cold outdoor glow that we get on our cheeks so I tend to opt for more rose golds, pinks and reds in the autumn months. Gotta be careful though otherwise you could end up looking like a clown and that isn't good. However two of my favorite blushes to use at the moment have to be rose gold by Sleek and NYX Diva. I just absolutely love these two for Autumn. Both very different with one being slightly more pinky orange and one being a burgundy red shade but both do the job and give that just flushed appearance which I love. I also love the sleek by three palettes in the shade pink lemonade. I absolutely love all three of the blushes in this palette as they add a really nice flushed glow to your cheeks which I think is perfect for the autumn months. 

Nails: Because of my job I'm quite restricted in what colors I can wear on my nails. I can only wear reds and nude colors so when I apply nail polish (to what ever nails I have because anxiety causes me to bite them non-stop...horrid habit...any tips let me know below) I'm now opting for the more burgundy shades because as you know I am obsessed with burgundy. My favorite one to use at the moment is one from Nails Inc called Kensington High Street which is a gorgeous oh what a massive shock burgundy shade. It's just so pretty and looks gorgeous on the nails during Autumn/Winter. I love it. 


FASHION
Oversized Jumpers: I absolutely love everything oversized pretty much the whole year round anyway but when it comes to winter I go that extra mile and just get pretty much any jumper that's oversized. Jumpers are just a perfect autumn/winter fashion choice as they will go with practically everything and are so easy to wear too. You just need to reach into your wardrobe, pull out a jumper and pair of jeans and voila you're good to go. I just love them! 

Rollnecks: Another one of my favourite things to wear are rollnecks. Whether it's a crop top or just a normal top or just a roll neck jumper I just love them. They are so cosy. My favorite rollneck at the moment is this green knitted jumper that I bought from topshop last season. It's just so warm and cosy!

Ankle Boots: I love ankle boots in winter! I think they are so comfy and I love the fact they come heeled or flat so no matter where you are heading there's always a pair that you can just throw on and it will look amazing with whatever you are wearing.

RANDOMS 
Cinnamon Hot Chocolate: Oh my gosh, this stuff is literally a god send. I absolutely love cinnamon hot chocolates. They are just so good and really get me excited for the Christmas Seasons. I love it! 

All Things Salted Caramel: I love everything salted caramel and recently tried the salted caramel lattes from Starbucks and absolutely adore them. They are just so incredible! But I don't just like salted caramel in drinks I absolutely love it in other foods as well such as chocolates and cookies which I know are pretty unhealthy but hey, a girl's gotta treat herself sometimes!

Lush Baths: There's nothing better than getting in from a long day at work when it's really cold outside and running a bubble bath full of lush cosmetics bath bombs. It's just so relaxing and really warms you up and makes you feel relaxed. At the moment it's still to warm for baths so I'm more of a shower girl however I can't wait for it to get more chilly so I can indulge into a nice lush bath, literally!

Candles: Candles are something that are lit in my house and room all year round however my favorite scents normally tend to be released around this time. I love all the wintery scents like cinnamon ,and apple spice related candles. I'm just so excited to go on a massive candle shopping spree soon so I can get my house and room all set up for the winter months!

Ice Skating: I don't know about you but I am really excited to go ice skating in the autumn/winter months. I've already been getting emails about Winter Wonderland which is a huge Christmas market with rides and a massive ice skating rink in Hyde Park in London. I'm so super excited as I love ice skating. It's just the perfect Winter night out. 

So there are just a few of my Autumn/Winter Essentials. I hope you enjoyed reading this post and you got to know a bit more about me and things I love about this time of year. I'm like an excitable puppy it's ridiculous! I just love Autumn/Winter. Be sure to let me know in the comments what season is your favorite and why!

Hey Everyone! Today I thought I would do another little home haul on a really lovely brand I discovered a while ago called Lily Rose Co. I came across this brand through the lovely Corrie from DizzyBrunette who also did a haul on their products and I just absolutely loved how cute and adorable everything was but every time I went on there everything I wanted seemed to be out of stock. However I finally managed to log on and get everything I wanted which I was so pleased with. Keep reading to find out more.


The first thing I bought was this adorable White and Blue Polka Dot Mug. I absolutely love this mug however it's not the sort of mug that I would actually use to drink in. I think it will look so lovely and classy on my desk. I also love the gold handle and the gold F which is obviously for Fleur as I just think it looks so classy and pretty. The mug was only £9.20. 

The next thing I got was these Pink Peonies and Big Dreams Set Of Pencils. Being a blogger and someone who likes to write lists and keep a journal having pens and pencils is always a must to have near by. I think these look so pretty and I love the gold foil writing on the sides of the pencils which just make them so cute and classy. These pencils were only £5 for a set of four which I know some people will consider pricey for some pencils but I just thought they were so cute and I just couldn't resist. 

The next thing I go was this 'Make Today Beautiful' Hanging Sign*. This product was actually sent to me as a little extra because they forgot to include one of the prints that I ordered at first which I thought was so lovely of them to add that something extra and this is so me. If you have seen my room tour posts then you will know I have a lot of these hanging signs around my room that just give me that added bit of positivity in the morning or throughout my day if I am just feeling a little bit down. I just love it and I'm so grateful to Lily Rose Co for being so thoughtful with a mistake they unintentionally made. 


I absolutely love having prints in my room and I've recently decided to revamp my desk and work area to have a few prints on it so I decided to order these two gorgeous prints. If you've been following me on twitter or know me in real life then you will know just how much I love New York and travelling in general. I mean I studied tourism for six years and now work for one of the biggest travel companies in the world so to have something on my desk that reminds of that and increases my wonderlust is definitely something that will make me happy! Both of these prints are £9.00 each and you can find them in the prints section HERE. Now all I have to do is fine a frame to put them in.


Lily Rose Co are an amazing company that do so many different homeware bits and pieces and it's definitely a great place to go if you are looking for gifts for your friends and family. I would highly recommend it. Their customer service is incredible and they products are extremely good quality and reasonably priced too. I would highly recommend it to all of you looking to spruce up your rooms especially if you are at uni or heading off to uni soon! Let me know in the comments if you know of any other homeware online stores like this as I always love a good home shopping spree. 

Have you bought anything from Lily Rose Co before? 
Hugs and Kisses

Lily Rose Co are an amazing company that do so many different homeware bits and pieces and it's definitely a great place to go if you are looking for gifts for your friends and family. I would highly recommend it. Their customer service is incredible and they products are extremely good quality and reasonably priced too. I would highly recommend it to all of you looking to spruce up your rooms especially if you are at uni or heading off to uni soon! Let me know in the comments if you know of any other homeware online stores like this as I always love a good home shopping spree. 

Have you bought anything from Lily Rose Co before?

Hey Everyone! Hope you are all having a lovely weekend so far. I've decided to set this weekend aside purely for blogging as I have so many ideas in my head and a fairly reasonable amount of time off. I am back to work full time from the 1st of next month so I'll barely have any time off which is why I want to get as many posts written up in this period off. Bloggers who manage to blog as well as work full time...tell me your secrets? Anyway today I wanted to do a bit of a light hearted post. Recently I've been talking a lot about my blog to people at work and their reaction has been absolutely hilarious so today I thought I'd do a post talking to you about things only us bloggers will understand. Enjoy!!

- Going to an event or out to a beautiful place and not having your camera to take photos and blog about it. Like why am I even here then? 

- The struggle for the perfect selfie/outfit shot. Yes us bloggers will pose in pretty much every position you can think of which can cause injury until we are completely satisfied. 

- When people ask you what a blog is. 'So you write about make up online'. Yes. 'And people actually read it. 'Yes'. 'Why?'....And that's when the problem starts. 'Because people prefer to hear honest opinions from people who buy the products rather than read magazines where people are paid to big up a product even though it may be rubbish'. But why do we still have magazines then. Question after question after question sometimes every single day! It can become quite exhausting. 

- Getting the perfect instagrammable meal at a restaurant and trying to take the perfect shot or the perfect cup of coffee and having to post it to every form of social media before actually eating or drinking it at which point it's normally cold and puts us in a bad mood for the rest of the day even though well...it was our own fault. 

- Putting on an awesome outfit that looks great when you look in the mirror but poo when you're actually trying to take photos of yourself in it. Why...just why?! 

- When you post something to instagram and other people start coming and having a random conversation about it...in another language! It's times like this I really wish instagram had a translate button! 


- Waking up early on a day where it is a beautiful day and there is perfect lighting. Yay for being able to take hundreds of pictures for my blog in advance! Good light in the UK is definitely a rare thing, especially now winter is creeping in on us! 

- Having people secretly think you're vain because you take hundreds of selfies of yourself and post them onto the internet! I didn't look the same last week as I do today okay?! 

- Having the postman actually know you by name and when you're in due to the amount of packages you receive throughout the week....erm....oops? I don't have a shopping addiction I promise! 

- When you hit a new milestone on bloglovin and get super happy that people automatically think you're in it to gain fame! No! But having almost 1600 people read my blog and are actually interested in what I have to say about different things is pretty damn amazing thank you very much! Go and be an unwanted rain cloud elsewhere please and thank you! 

- Struggling with writers block every day all day and then suddenly having a billion ideas enter your head at once at like 1AM. Well I guess I won't be sleeping tonight! 


- Getting emails from PR companies wanting you to trial and test their latest ironing board because it 'fits in with the theme of your blog'. Yes an ironing bored definitely fits in with a lifestyle and beauty blog. 

- Always getting worried about promoting your blog on social media as you're constantly in fear of being known as the 'spammer'. I promise you I'm not, I just have a new post that I would like people to read. 

- Having at least a dozen posts saved in drafts that have been there for months because you just do not know how to word them properly or are in constant fear of getting judged because you've chosen to talk about a topic that's not seen much on the blogosphere. 

- Taking a million photos for a post, going to edit them and seeing that only one has come out decent. Just why?! 

- Shopping purely for the purpose of blogging becomes a thing. And I'm not just talking about things to blog about. Yes those flowers will look lovely in the background when I take that photo. Oooo I must have that marble wallpaper as it'll look amazing in photos. 

- You start to call other bloggers you've never met your friends purely because they do not judge you and have very similar outlooks and interests as you! Yay for team internet! 

- Blogging is constantly on your mind. It's literally a 24/7 thing and something we cannot switch off from no matter how hard we try. 

- Portable phone chargers become a must have item purely because of the amount of time we spend on our phones due to taking blog photos, reading blogs, tweeting and other things that make us seem like we have an unhealthy addiction. 

- You forget what having a ton of phone memory is as you never have any space for anything thanks to perfecting that instagram shot. Oops. 

- Blogging will be become a place you can go to when you're feeling down. You will meet so many new people with the same interests as you who will want to speak to you about different things and not judge you! I have come across and met so many amazing people since I started blogging and I wouldn't change it for the world. 

So there we have it. Just a few things that I know only us bloggers will understand. It can be a tough old place at times but looking back at these things has definitely made me laugh and giggle a little bit as it's also a place where friendships are made and where people always have each others backs. I love blogging and the community and everything that comes with it and I definitely wouldn't change it for the world.

Can you think of anything else to add to this list?

Hey everyone! Hope you are all well and are excited for the weekend ahead! I cannot believe it's coming up towards the end of September. Where is this year going?! I now have a week off work which is absolutely lovely as I haven't really had any time off since I had training in June! It's been crazy and I've so much overtime that I decided this month I would book some time off and have a bit of a break. I think I deserve it. I also think this is the perfect time to get some blog posts written for you all as I have been really awful with it however thank you all for your comments and tweets about my blog. I really appreciate it. Now to get back into the point of this post! 


When I started this blog almost three years ago now, I remember the one brand that I would constantly see being talked about was MAC. Whether it was foundations, powders or lipsticks there wasn't a post I would read where MAC wasn't mentioned. As I was unemployed at the time I used to sit there and silently cry (not really) at the fact I couldn't afford them. However now that I have a bit more money coming in every month I can afford to splurge on a few products here and there. One lipstick that I had my beady eye on for a while was New York Apple. I had a bit of free time at work one day and decided to wonder to the MAC stall in duty free and just browse the lipsticks but I knew I wanted this shade and the girls were absolutely lovely which is a rarity in MAC stores so I had no hesitation in purchasing New York Apple. I absolutely adore the color and I think it is the perfect shade for Autumn/Winter. Keep reading to find out more. 


New York Apple is a frost finish lipstick which I absolutely love. This is basically a frost like shimmer effect once it has been applied to the lips. I didn't think I would like it as I have seen other frost finish lipsticks and I haven't been overly keen on how they look but I've found this one to be just right. One thing I was super excited about when purchasing this lipstick was the packaging. I absolutely love the packaging of MAC lipsticks. I find the black and silver combined, although extremely simple, just makes the lipstick appear that little bit more luxurious on my dressing table or in my make up bag.


The main product itself is absolutely incredible. The color is an extremely beautiful pinky red shade which is absolutely perfect for the autumn/winter season. I love how shiny it looks on the lips and sometimes when it catches the light it looks light it has tiny specks of rose gold in it. And I'm sure you all know how much I love rose gold. It's also the perfect shade for everyday wear whether you are going to work or to school/college/university or even on a night out this is just one of those shades that is perfect for every single day and occasion. It's one of those lipsticks that you can apply quite lightly and still get a good color from. However you can also build it up nicely to how you want it to look on the lips which is another bonus point,

When it comes to the texture of the lipstick it's definitely something I was very impressed with. I find that it is very creamy which is what I love in lip products. I think it's super easy to apply but doesn't make it that slippery which is always a worry of mine when it comes to lipsticks. I love how moisturizing this feels on the lips too. It definitely reminds me of the Revlon lip butters which happen to be some of my all time favorite lip products. Also if you hate sticky lipsticks then do not worry as this is just incredible and definitely doesn't make your lips sticky which to me is definitely an added bonus.

I find that this product also lasts quite a long time on the lips as well. I love the pink tint it leaves on the lips before you need to reapply it as it doesn't disappear completely which is definitely a bonus point as when I'm at work I definitely do not have time to keep touching up my make up so I love the fact my lips are always tinted a little bit. If you're looking for a perfect autumn lipstick I'd highly recommend this shade.


Overall I absolutely love this lipstick. I think the color is just beautiful, the lasting power is amazing, it's moisturizing and I love that it doesn't feel that heavy on the lips too which can be the case with some lipsticks. If you are looking for your first MAC lipstick that's perfect for the autumn/winter months I would highly recommend New York Apple as it's a shade that suits all skin tones and just the perfect color. Have you used New York Apple before? 

What are your favorite lipsticks for Autumn/Winter?

Hey everyone! Hope you are well! First of all let me just apologise for being so slow with blog posts lately. I've been so busy with work and family stuff that I have barely had time to even sit down and breathe. However I have a day off today so I thought why not sit down and get a few posts typed up. I thought I'd start off talking to you about a new show I've seen recently called Edges The Musical.

Edges is originally a musical by two guys named Benj Pasak and Justin Paul. I had never heard of this show until around a month ago when the productions company 'Peak Productions' set up by the lovely Michael Auger from Collabro caught my attention. As I'm sure most of you are aware I absolutely lovely musical theatre and the way it can relate to different aspects of your life and transport you to a completely different place. I also love Collabro so when I found out Michael was producing it and Jamie Lambert was the vocal coach to the four cast members I knew it was something that I really wanted to support and be a part of.

I've been keeping an eye on Michael's twitter and the Peak Productions twitter (Peak Productions) since he announced that he was the one behind this new company and found out more about the show by listening to interviews he has done about it. I love how he's presented everything on social media from introducing us to the cast members to showing us snippets of the songs in the show to even the cast in rehearsals. Because of this it definitely wasn't one I had any intention of missing. The show basically follows the story of 2 girls and 2 boys growing up and how they deal with different aspects of every day life, both the good and the bad such as family and relationships which is definitely two things most of us can relate to! I bought my tickets straight away for opening night which was the 16th September and wasn't disappointed.

The cast of Edges consisted of Lauren Allen, Chris Barton, Claudia Karuiki and Robert Woodward. Amazing is an understatement for how good this group of people are. Lauren has the most lovely voice and her version of the song 'Man Of My Dreams' was just stunning. She has such a quirky character and that really comes across on stage which I love. Chris Barton not only has the most incredible voice but his acting is amazing and he made me laugh loads during his version of 'In Short' especially as it's a song most of us can somehow relate to. Claudia is just a power house! The voice on this girl is just incredible. I had goosebumps and a lump in my throat every time she performed. Her version of 'Ready To Be Loved' is amazing and is the one song that I haven't been able to stop singing as it has been stuck in my head since Wednesday evening. I relate to it so much! Robert has got a beautiful tone to his voice too and the song 'Boy With Dreams' is so beautifully sung and takes you back to a time where you were in that exact same position in your life. I also loved the duets throughout the show as well especially of the songs 'I Hmm You' and 'Caitlyn and Haley'. These four cast members are going to be huge one day and I can't wait to see where their involvement with this show eventually takes them!

If you love the sound of this show then it is currently running every evening from now until the 1st of October at the London Theatre Workshop in Fulham which is a small fringe theatre above a pub on New Kings Road and then it finishes in the St Paul's Actors Church in Covent Garden for a 2 show day on the 3rd October. All you have to do is just click the link HERE where you can buy tickets. I would highly recommend it if you love shows with good music, talent, humor and emotion or just want to experience something new. It's just amazing and I'm definitely heading back to see it again before it closes. I also can't wait to see what Michael decides to do with the company next as he has done such a fantastic job with this show. I'm excited to see where this will take him!

I'll end this post here by saying Edges is an incredible musical, with an insane cast and amazing team behind it. I absolutely loved it and reckon that you would be seriously crazy to miss it. So go on...click the link above and buy your tickets now before it closes on the 3rd October. You can also keep up to date with Edges by following Peak Productions on Facebook HERE and on Twitter HERE.

Ever questioned what your life used to be like before Netflix was invented? I do all the time! Long gone are the days where I would struggle to find a decent link to watch my favorite TV shows (Putlocker anyone?) as now for only £5.99 a month it's all on Netflix and with one click of a button I can sit and chill and not have to worry! It's just amazing. I love reading posts and finding out what other people have been watching and what they love to watch so I thought why not tell you my favorite things to watch on Netflix at the moment are. Enjoy!

Pretty Little Liars: Now I can't do this post without Pretty Little Liars being at top of the list! It's definitely one of my favorite TV shows ever and I am so excited for the second half of season six to come on netflix! If you haven't watched it before I'm sure you've heard a lot about it from friends who have watched it and from social media. It's honestly amazing. Girly but quite scary in parts (depending on your definition of scary obviously but it's pretty jumpy I find!). Main overview is about 4 girls who are reunite after a summer apart to find their friend who has gone missing. If only they knew what lay in store for them...definitely watch check it out if you haven't already and prepare to be hooked.

Gossip Girl: If you're looking for a fabulous city, incredible hot guys and are looking for some new style inspiration....Gossip Girl is definitely the place to go. I absolutely love this show. I didn't actually start watching it until last year but I absolutely love everything about it. It's basically about New York's teenage elite. It's definitely not a show I thought I would love but definitely one I've become hooked on! It literally has everything and there's never a dull moment on the show. I've watched the seasons about 5 times each now and I just love them so much.

Once Upon A Time: I absolutely love Disney. I love everything about it. It just makes me so incredible happy. I knew about this show ages ago however again it was one of those shoes I avoided because I thought I wouldn't like it. Boy was I wrong. It's just incredible and if you love your Disney princes and princesses and thought you knew them....think again! I love the story lines so much. I'm currently half way through season 3 but I can't wait to watch the rest.

The Vampire Dairies/The Originals: I'm going to be honest here, I absolutely hated the twilight films so when The Vampire Diaries came onto the scene I definitely didn't watch it as I thought I would hate it. However I was introduced to it one night and ended up watching about 13 episodes in one night. I've become hooked. I have season 5 and season 6 still to watch. I'm also obsessed with the Originals which is basically a spin off of The Vampire Diaries but one that's equally as amazing. However you can't watch this until you've go to at least the end of season 3 of the vampire dairies as you won't understand what happens. Definitely two shows I'd highly recommend.

Orange Is The New Black: This is definitely a show I found hard to get into at first. However after watching it a couple more times and getting into it more I absolutely love it. It's very funny and will leave you wanting more which is a good thing. I'm half way through the third season and I definitely don't think it's as good as the last two but I'd still highly recommend it.

90210: I honestly wish the original series was on Netflix as I absolutely love that too but I'm all for the modern version that's on netflix. Basically gossip girl but in LA. Filled with the same teen drama we all know and have been a part of ourselves. I love it. I still have to watch the final season but I'm obsessed with the first four! Definitely check it out if you haven't already.

So those are my favorite tv shows that I love on Netflix. I know these are probably the standard girly ones that everyone has watched but still. If you know of any other shows I should check out then feel free to leave them in the comments below. Suits and Game Of Thrones (which I know isn't on Netflix) are next on my list!

My Favorite Things To Watch On Netflix


Ever questioned what your life used to be like before Netflix was invented? I do all the time! Long gone are the days where I would struggle to find a decent link to watch my favorite TV shows (Putlocker anyone?) as now for only £5.99 a month it's all on Netflix and with one click of a button I can sit and chill and not have to worry! It's just amazing. I love reading posts and finding out what other people have been watching and what they love to watch so I thought why not tell you my favorite things to watch on Netflix at the moment are. Enjoy!

Pretty Little Liars: Now I can't do this post without Pretty Little Liars being at top of the list! It's definitely one of my favorite TV shows ever and I am so excited for the second half of season six to come on netflix! If you haven't watched it before I'm sure you've heard a lot about it from friends who have watched it and from social media. It's honestly amazing. Girly but quite scary in parts (depending on your definition of scary obviously but it's pretty jumpy I find!). Main overview is about 4 girls who are reunite after a summer apart to find their friend who has gone missing. If only they knew what lay in store for them...definitely watch check it out if you haven't already and prepare to be hooked.

Gossip Girl: If you're looking for a fabulous city, incredible hot guys and are looking for some new style inspiration....Gossip Girl is definitely the place to go. I absolutely love this show. I didn't actually start watching it until last year but I absolutely love everything about it. It's basically about New York's teenage elite. It's definitely not a show I thought I would love but definitely one I've become hooked on! It literally has everything and there's never a dull moment on the show. I've watched the seasons about 5 times each now and I just love them so much.

Once Upon A Time: I absolutely love Disney. I love everything about it. It just makes me so incredible happy. I knew about this show ages ago however again it was one of those shoes I avoided because I thought I wouldn't like it. Boy was I wrong. It's just incredible and if you love your Disney princes and princesses and thought you knew them....think again! I love the story lines so much. I'm currently half way through season 3 but I can't wait to watch the rest.

The Vampire Dairies/The Originals: I'm going to be honest here, I absolutely hated the twilight films so when The Vampire Diaries came onto the scene I definitely didn't watch it as I thought I would hate it. However I was introduced to it one night and ended up watching about 13 episodes in one night. I've become hooked. I have season 5 and season 6 still to watch. I'm also obsessed with the Originals which is basically a spin off of The Vampire Diaries but one that's equally as amazing. However you can't watch this until you've go to at least the end of season 3 of the vampire dairies as you won't understand what happens. Definitely two shows I'd highly recommend.

Orange Is The New Black: This is definitely a show I found hard to get into at first. However after watching it a couple more times and getting into it more I absolutely love it. It's very funny and will leave you wanting more which is a good thing. I'm half way through the third season and I definitely don't think it's as good as the last two but I'd still highly recommend it.

90210: I honestly wish the original series was on Netflix as I absolutely love that too but I'm all for the modern version that's on netflix. Basically gossip girl but in LA. Filled with the same teen drama we all know and have been a part of ourselves. I love it. I still have to watch the final season but I'm obsessed with the first four! Definitely check it out if you haven't already.

So those are my favorite tv shows that I love on Netflix. I know these are probably the standard girly ones that everyone has watched but still. If you know of any other shows I should check out then feel free to leave them in the comments below. Suits and Game Of Thrones (which I know isn't on Netflix) are next on my list!

Hey Everyone! Hope you are all okay! I writing this post from my brand new laptop which I am loving! I've managed to get so much blogging today so make sure to keep an eye out for posts that will be heading your way in the next couple of weeks. Today however I wanted to inform you of a new social media addition that can make it easier for all of you to find this blog. Keep reading to find out more.

If you have followed me for a while then you will know I am always blogging on here and always on twitter. Twitter is where I can share my blog with like minded people who won't judge me even though let's face it the minute you put yourself online you are judged but that's okay! Facebook used to be a place where I shared everything. I was a tad obsessed I admit it. Oops, however since starting my blog I've never really been on there. I've never shared any posts and only a few close friends know about my blog because I've been too worried about what other people think which I think looking back is a bit silly.

I will always care about what people think of me. It's something I cannot help unfortunately, however I want to stop hiding things and be a little more open about what I'm passionate about and I think facebook would be the perfect way to do that. I've been debating for a while now about whether or not to set up a facebook page for my blog and I just thought today to just go for it! I know there's a lot of people who read my blog who perhaps don't have bloglovin' or twitter so find it hard to keep up to date with blogs. I know the majority have facebook so I thought this would be a perfect way for other people to just keep up to date with my posts.

I won't make this post too long but the reasons above are why I decided to set up a facebook page and I would be so so grateful if you could head on over there and support me and my blog. The link is https://www.facebook.com/fleurdanielle24 and I'll start posting on there practically straight away so be sure to head on over and give it a quick like! If you have a facebook page for your own blog be sure to link it in the comments below and I'll head on over and support you too as I think it's such an easy way to keep up to date with blogs.

Hey Everyone! Hope you had a lovely bank holiday weekend! As it's officially September and the beginning of the autumn/winter season I thought it would be a perfect time to do a post like this and tell you reasons you should be excited! Yes summer is over which means no more barbecues or late night picnics in the park and of course there's the definite increase in rain (especially if you're from the UK) but it's my favourite time of the year. I love everything about this season so I thought why not do a post that can help all you non-autumn/winter lovers look for reasons to love and make the most of this season. Enjoy!

CANDLES. Now I know this is something that most people have all year round however I prefer to have candles lit in the winter. Everything just seems so much more cosy and warm and welcoming. I just absolutely love candles and I love the different scents that come out around this time of year as well especially cinnamon and apple cider scents. Just yes!

ROLL NECK JUMPERS/BOOTS/SCARVES. One of my most favorite things about the autumn and winter months has to be the fashion! I absolutely love roll neck jumpers as they are so easy to throw on and they always go with absolutely everything. I love the variety of different scarves and boots available in the shops as well! I've already been scouring the shops for autumn/winter wear and I haven't been disappointed so far! New Look in particular seems to be amazing.

BURGUNDY/PLUM. Two of my favourite colors to wear in the autumn/winter months are burgundy and plum. I absolutely love them. Plum lipsticks in particular are amazing and I love everything burgundy when it comes to clothing. It's just such the perfect color for this time of the year.

FROSTY MORNINGS. Okay so I guess this could be more of a winter than autumn one but I absolutely love waking up and looking out my window and seeing the grass covered in a thin layer of frost. I just think it looks so incredibly beautiful. I'm definitely more of a cold weather kinda gal.

X FACTOR RETURNS. The addictive show that we all love to hate or consider a guilty pleasure (like me) returns! It's literally become a Christmas countdown for me! Who else is excited to see the Coca Cola advert appear through ad breaks the closer it gets to Christmas? I know I am!

HOT DRINKS: Hot chocolate & pumpkin spice lattes anyone?! Or even the delicious salted caramel returning to your lives?! I absolutely love going into a costa or starbucks throughout the day and buying a hot drink and I love the variety of different drinks that they bring out! I'm mega excited for the 'costa v starbucks' christmas cup battles! Who do we think will do the best ones this year folks? Costa won by a mile last year!

HALLOWEEN. There's nothing better than grabbing your boyfriend/best friends, baking a few autumnal treats and watching a ton of horror films and scaring yourself silly! Truth be told as much as I don't like scary films I love being scared and the fear factor! It just makes things 10x more exciting I find!

BATHS. I'm definitely a shower girl in summer and a bath girl in winter so the fact that I can start to run a ton of baths and dip into the growing pile of lush products I have in my bathroom excites me so much!

FIREWORKS. Remember, remember the 5th of November! I absolutely love Bonfire Night/Guy Fawkes night whatever it is you want to call it. I love seeing the sky lit up with different colors and patterns. This year I'm going to make it my aim to go to as many firework shoes as humanely possible! Purely so I can have a hot chocolate and eat candy floss whilst watching them. Big kid right here okay?! I promise you I've just turned 24!

LONGER LAZY DAYS/MOVIE NIGHTS: Autumn/Winter means more bad weather and longer nights so what better way then to have your hot bath then grab a selection of your favorite films and have a movie marathon complete with popcorn or even just watch your favorite TV show all evening! I think this is the thing I'm most excited for especially as I'll be working most of the time!

ONESIES. Onesies are literally a godsend in autumn/winter! I love them! I mean who doesn't want to look like a grown up baby? They always look so cosy and comfortable and content with life so why can't we?! I'll take 10 this year please!

WINTER WONDERLAND: One of London's biggest events from Late November to the beginning of January. It's basically a huge Christmas Market complete with a mini theme park and a huge ice skating rink...erm yes please?! What a perfect way to have a day out with a boyfriend/girlfriend/best friends?!

WALKING THROUGH THE PARK. I love Autumn purely for all the beautiful colors that appear on the trees so walking through a part where you can just kick through the leaves (I told you...big kid right here) just excites me so much. Whether it's by yourself or with your family and friends it's just the perfect way to wind down in the afternoons I reckon.

FIRES: Whether this is lighting a fire in your living room or just going camping around a bonfire with your friends and family there really is nothing more relaxing and cosy! Especially if you have a good book at hand and a mug of your favorite hot drink! Yes please!


So there we have it. I told you Autumn was my favorite time of the year! If you weren't excited for Autumn and were dreading it I bet you are looking forward to it a lot more! It's my absolute favorite time of the year. I like the summer but I love the Autumn so much more. If you have done a post similar to this then please leave me a comment below as I'd love to read why you are excited about Autumn.
