Beauty | The Lipstick Diary

I saw this idea on Tumblr and it seemed to good to not try myself. The idea is simple, every time I wear lipstick I just kiss the page in my notebook then write the date under it. It's not looking very impressive at the minute with just four marks and a lack of continuity in formatting but eventually it will become a gorgeous visual documentation of my life in lip colours. I love finding new ways to use up my notebooks and think this is such a pretty idea... remind me to keep it up!

Life | CBT - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Antoine Beauvillian
Every other blogger seems to have anxiety these days so I'm not going to sit here and talk about my experiences with it. My opinions on anxiety blogging can wait for another day but, in short, I think the number of bloggers claiming to have anxiety following Zoella's confessions makes it difficult to be taken seriously when you start talking about your own experiences with it.

Instead, what I'm talking about today is CBT - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. CBT is a form of counselling shown to be particularly helpful with anxiety disorders though many people have never even heard of it.

Beauty | My Little Box by Diane Von Furstenberg

I'm sure you remember how excited I was last month when I unboxed the first UK edition of 'My Little Box' - a beauty box concept that originated in Paris and brings with it all sorts of french goodies. I couldn't wait for my next box but when I found that designer Diane Von Furstenberg had curated this months edition I can't say I was over the moon.

Music | The End Is KIGH

Gigs can be a pretty bittersweet feeling. On the one hand you get to experience being in the same room as a bad you love (maybe even one of your favourites) singing along to all their songs, whilst on the other it's all pretty much over in one night. So, with that in mind you can imagine what it's like to go and see one of your favourite bands on their farewell tour!

Haul | Stationery

First off I ought to apologise for the fact that my blog activity has basically been at zero for the past week. I've just started my last year of university and, being a third year who is also in one of the most time-consuming society committees out there, I have had no time at all to even sit down and read some blogs, let alone get something written for my own!

I have however been collecting a small amount of stationery which I thought might make a topical come-back post. Being in my last year of uni I feel like this is my last chance to buy stationery in large amounts for legitimate reasons so I might as well make the most of it!

Beauty | Barry M Showgirl Volume Mascara

Let's file this under 'Products I Bought For The Packaging'. Barry M are spot on with this pretty pink tube... it looks extremely high end with a girly yet not tacky design. Between the two finishes the only difference comes between colour - pink for volume and silver for length. I would have bought both but my local Superdrug only had the volume tube, which is fine for me as I am a volume girl through and through. The question is, will it perform?

Megan Reads | Fangirl - Rainbow Rowell

After loving Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor and Park I was full expecting to enjoy this. It seems to have rave reviews everywhere so hopes were set high - how could the 93 5 star reviews on Amazon be wrong?

(spoiler alert: they were)
