What I Watched in April

For me, April has been a relatively quiet TV month. I like to include only series I have finished in my monthly roundup posts, so really, there should only be two things to write about this month! However, it occurred to me I actually forgot about some things in my last roundup...

Pink Top, Grey Pinafore

It would seem there is a definite pattern emerging in my outfit posts this year. I'm pretty sure these grey boots have appeared in every single one and I seem to pick a focus piece and use that in a few posts before moving onto something new. My current focus looks like this simple grey pinafore from ASOS...

Holiday Time Primark Haul

The other week, I booked some time off work and flew to Spain with my sister for a much needed holiday. The prospect of a week away spent in hot sunshine on the beach was great but I soon realised I was missing a few "essentials" from my wardrobe because it has been such a long time since I had a beach holiday. So, naturally, it was time for a Primark haul.

Operation Supervixen: Finding My Balance

Already 2017 has been a transformative year for me. At the beginning of the year, I strongly felt like I'd had a good rest and time to learn things during 2016 and 2017 was the year of making stuff happen. Then, two weeks in, disaster struck and I was admitted to hospital. It's literally only the past fortnight or so that I've genuinely started throwing the word "recovered" around in my head. My pain has finally gone and I've noticed I'm not as lethargic and exhausted as I had been. My desire to start exercising and doing things other than chillout activities has started to come back.

However, if there's one thing that my experiences have taught me this year, it's that I desperately need to find some balance.

The Vixen Thinks: Are You Obligated to Use Your Platform?

In an age where we have instant access to more information than it's possible to consume in a lifetime, it's very difficult to remain unaware of the world around you. Breaking news is just that; we hear about events as they are happening thanks to the power of social media. As a result of this, we are a very politically aware generation and whatever side of the political spectrum you fall on, it's easy to share your opinion with a huge audience by using the internet.

Does this make us obligated to use our platform to speak up for what we believe in?

Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Combination/Oily Skin [Product Review]

Ah, foundation. I don't think I'm alone when I say it's the bane of my existence. I thought I'd finally found The One but unfortunately, although I loved it, I couldn't support that brand anymore. The quest for The One had to continue. Could it be Revlon's Colorstay Foundation for Combination/Oily Skin?

How To Style a Grey Pinafore

Today I'm sharing the outfit I wore when I visited Wentworth Castle. Of course, it would have made sense to take my outfit photos in the idyllic scenes of the gardens there, but clearly, I am out of practice when it comes to this blogging thing and I took my photos elsewhere. Ah well, I may not be surrounded by exotic plants but you still get a pretty good idea of what my outfit looked like!

Embracing my Glasses

Glasses were only something I started needing when I was 19. I was sat in a lecture at university when I realised I was really having to squint to see some of the detail on the Powerpoint slides. A few weeks later, I nearly missed a train because I couldn't read the screens at the train station. It felt like my perfect vision had disappeared overnight and I was horrified, I didn't want to wear glasses! In fact, a week after I received my first pair of glasses, I was right back in the opticians getting contact lenses instead.

But why was I so resistant to wearing glasses?
