Those of you who follow me on Instagram will have seen that I was fortunate enough to be able to go and see Wicked as part of a Christmas present from my ever so amazing mum last night at the Hippodrome in Bristol.

When we got there, the whole building was glowing green and they'd even put out a green carpet to celebrate the occasion, which I thought was a really lovely touch! There were also posters and banners dotted all around the city which myself and my friend Sophie squealed at every time we saw. It seemed like the whole city was getting excited for the show!

Mac Quad

I realised I haven't posted many make up bits and bobs lately so I thought that for today's post I would show you my Mac quad so far.

Galentine's Day!

(Image courtesy of Clockwork) Now I have never seen Parks and Recreation so I feel bad calling this post GALentine's Day after realising it was meant to be yesterday but I'm sure you can forgive me and my lack of wit for not being able to come up with another title...

Sweet Treats Popcorn*

I was recently contacted by a company called Sweet Treats on Twitter (@Sweet_Tree_Co) and was sent a sample of some of their popcorn to try and let you know what I think!

The Body Shop's Camomile Cleaning Butter

Today's post is one that I promised in my January Favourites post last week and it's a review of my new Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter! I bought this after seeing a lot of rave reviews from bloggers and I thought I would add my opinion to the mix.

If you read my January in Review post last month then you'll have seen that on the 15th and then again on the 31st, I took part in a public speaking competition run by an organisation called BPW UK. I am really grateful to have been able to participate in this as I feel like the whole experience taught me a lot, and it introduced me to BPW and what they do, so I decided to write a post about them today!

The Handmaid's Tale

Hello everyone, today I'm back with another post about the book that I'm currently reading, which is The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood! 
This book is one of my three coursework texts for my English A Level (I'm doing the AQA English Literature A Love Through The Ages course - is anyone else doing that? Let me know, it would be so cool to find someone else!) and the other two are Romeo and Juliet and On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan, both of which we studied in class. This text has been an independent study so I've had to devote a lot of time to it, hence why there weren't many #CurrentlyReadings in January - I think I only managed to read two books in the whole month because of this!

Sighh Designs Phone Case

For those of you who follow @pollyvdsz on Twitter, you may know about her online shop Sighh Designs and her cute phone cases. I've seen them all over Instagram for years - I even remember when she made a personalised one for Velvetgh0st that people could buy - but it wasn't until she closed her shop over Christmas that I decided I finally wanted to take the plunge and buy one. As usual, the heart wants what it can't have!

January Favourites

What a month January has been! If you're interested in seeing a glimpse into what I got up to, I posted a Month in Review post on Saturday talking about some of the things that have happened, but this post is all about some of the beauty products I've been loving throughout the month!
