Life Lately

D'you know what, June has been pretty good to me. So many wonderful/unexpected things happened, big and small, so I thought that instead of trusting my memory to remember them, I'd write up a little post and share my happy things with you guys, too. A few of the photos above were actually taken in May (the first three, definitely. The one of Luna was taken back last September (!) but I Instagrammed it in June so ya know.)

Lush Ultraviolet Bubble Bar

It was my blog birthday last month, and aside from the present that I bought for my blog (my header), I didn't expect anything else. But on a trip into town to visit my Stepdad in hospital, my boyfriend slipped into Lush and emerged with a special present for me and my blog!

Bookshelf Tour 2015

It's been a long time coming, but I'm finally doing a bookshelf tour! It wasn't until the end of last year that I even had a bookshelf, my books were just piled up in every corner of my room with no home & in no particular order which annoyed the hell out of me. I'm a bit shy to be showing you guys this, actually, mostly because all of the other bookshelf tours I've seen are beautifully displayed and consist of about 4 separate shelving units. I only have one unit, partly because my bedroom is too small for two, partly because I hide away all of the other books I own that I haven't read for a long time. I'm not 100% sure where this unit is from, but here is a very similar one from Ikea. I'm going to replace this shelf with a plain white one eventually, but I don't see the point in doing that until this one is un-useable! It's the eco warrior inside me. I might attempt to cover it in sticky-back white plastic, but we shall see.

NEW IN: B. Cosmetics

Last Tuesday marked the beginning of something very exciting for me: my first order of all vegan make-up arrived! After lingering around on the Superdrug website for a little while, I realised that the B. cosmetics line was on sale so I grabbed a few things in order to replace some of the my non-cruelty-free products that I've finally finished. Since purchasing, I have actually used all of these products so let me know if you want a First Impressions/review of any of them!

5 Tips For Reading More Books

Now that I'm a fancy, one-year-old Book Blogger, I thought I'd share some tips for ways to read more! I'm very specific (ie fussy) about the way that I read and recently I think I've finally worked out the best ways for me. Hopefully after reading this post you'll be able to say the same!

Boho Moon Crystal Necklaces

Allow me to introduce you to the prettiest necklaces in my jewellery collection...
A few weeks ago, the most tantalising competition come up on my Twitter feed: a chance to win 3 necklaces from bohemian jewellery brand Boho Moon. I entered instantly and then was amazed to find out that I'd won! I quickly requested my favourites, and after a bit of a mix-up on my part (which they were completely wonderful and patient about) and not even two days (!) my necklaces arrived in the post.
