Review // Dior Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation

At the beginning of the year, I wrote a list of beauty brands I want to try in 2016 and Dior were high on that list, specifically the Diorskin foundations. When House of Fraser asked me to review some make up from their site, I seized my chance and went straight to the sizeable selection of Dior products to choose a foundation. Eventually, I settled on Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation simply based on the novelty. As the name would suggest, this is a spray-on foundation. Intriguing, right?

Review // Lush Breeze on a Sea Air Toner Water

I have a thing about sea salt. Breath of Fresh Air toner was amazing and, when I recently finished it (by which I mean, lost the bottle somehow), I turned my thoughts towards which toner I would try next. As luck would have it, Breeze on a Sea Air popped up in the Kitchen and, as it seemed so similar to my previous selection, I decided to give it a whirl.

Meeting the Pointless Chaps

Everyone loves Pointless right? I know I definitely do. In fact, I've applied to be on the show. Twice. I didn't hear back either time so maybe I should just take the hint. One of the reasons I want to be on Pointless- aside from wanting to assert my authority as a bloody amazing contestant and winning that coveted Pointless trophy- is because I love Richard Osman more than I love my own husband. True facts. Turns out, I didn't need to be a contestant to meet the love of my life because I only went and bloody did it anyway!

Book Wishlist // Victorian Society

It seems crazy to me that so many bookworms aren't into non-fiction. For me, there is nothing more fascinating than developing new knowledge, and learning is the best way to do that. The vast majority of my Amazon wishlist is non-fiction and, in fact, around 41% of my TBR (yes, I did the maths) is factual. It will come as a surprise to nobody that the topic I read about the most is death but I'm also completely enamoured by Victorian society. For a time, I planned to study Victorian history at university (until I realised I'd have to complete both years of my tedious Tudor history A level and I was not down with that!). I have a fair few Victorian-themed books waiting to be read, but also have a lot more on my wishlist.

How to visit Amsterdam for £200

As you may have already seen, Ami and I recently visited Amsterdam. We chose the Dutch capital predominantly because it's so affordable. As much as we both would have loved a trip to Paris, since Ami is a student and I'm in a weird unemployed-before-studying limbo, we don't exactly have the funds to visit the more expensive destinations. We set ourselves a budget of £200 for flights and accommodation but, remarkably, we pretty much managed to keep our entire trip below this figure. If you're looking for a super affordable European city break, Amsterdam is the one! Here's how we did it...

Review // Lush Ice Blue Shampoo

Lush haircare is one of my favourite things. It takes a lot of willpower not to buy every single shampoo and conditioner that pops into the Kitchen. Sometimes I just have to yield to the tempation, and when Ice Blue appeared on the menu, I had to have it.
