Lola's Cupcakes

Yummmyyyyy, I could JUST eat one of these bad boys right now!

Lola's Cupcakes has made it's way to Manchester and they have their very own cutesy cart at the Trafford Centre! I genuinely think they could be the BEST cupcakes I have ever eaten so if you are heading to the Trafford Centre then be sure to stop by!

They even do vegan cupcakes and gluten free :)

Charlotte's Trinkets, Treats & Treasures
Be. Still. My. Beating. Heart.

Oh Charlotte. You have done it again. On Tuesday I had the most wonderful day and met my makeup mogul idol Charlotte Tilbury at the Trafford Centre!

Charlotte talked us through this years gifting options and I genuinely would be so happy to receive any of them. They are stunning. Prices start at £29 and go all the way up to £220, but each gift set is thoughtfully curated and beautifully wrapped which makes the gift of makeup a reality!

Charlotte is so refreshingly real and honest that spending time with her is just such a great experience. It was one of those moments where I feel pretty damn proud about where my corner of the internet has got me. Charlotte is SO right when she says that makeup benefits both the wearer and those they encounter as the person wearing it often feels so much more confident and I have to agree. I adore makeup and after Tuesday I think I actually love it even more!!!

Tanya Bardo Jewellery Launch
On Tuesday evening I headed to Hale to check out Cheshire Housewife Tanya Bardsley's Jewellery Collection; Dreams to Reality.

Hosted by Ledigo PR and held at The Garden, guests mingled, were pampered and treated to the musical delights of Sam Burrows.

I absolutely love the concept of the jewellery line. As you know, I am a big fan of to do lists, objective setting and having goals. With each piece there is a cute little accompaniment and the idea is that you write down your goals/aspirations etc and then the jewellery is a visual reminder every day.. now, for me this could be perfect come January when I do my annual, let's get gymming routine! They would make such cute and thoughtful presents for Christmas so be sure to check them out.

I was DROOLING over the long chain rose gold angel wings necklace but all of the collection is really pretty. Prices range from £39-£99 and they are plated sterling silver :)

Thank you both to Tanya and Ledigo PR for a really lovely Tuesday night!!!

Manchester Arndale #VloggerChristmasEdit

Soooo I was up bright and early on Saturday morning and I headed to the Manchester Arndale to take a look at my fave vlogger babes doin their thang and recording an interactive Christmas Gift Guide for all of us clueless Mr and Mrs Claus' this Christmas!

They have counted down their top ten in a number of different categories so if you are stuck for ideas then head on over to Manchester Arndale TV on YouTube and prepare to be inspired.

There is also a wonderful competition if you are around the Arndale this week! Just visit one of the gang outside Next and River Island to be in with a chance of winning a £250 gift card! :)

Offering a combination of salon type treatments alongside medical treatments, the clinic is a private, comfortable and accessible place for all your beauty needs.

Last Saturday I popped into House of Fraser Manchester to check out Regis' new salon hidden in the depths of the store.

It is the most amazing oasis of calm offering hair and beauty treatments, with direct access to the HOF Car Park, meaning no ruined new do :)

I had a lovely blow dry ready for the Hoop Ball last Saturday, I shared a few pics on my Instagram and I was really happy with how it turned out!

It's getting cold. And dark. And wintery.

So most mornings I need coffee and this is where my brand new Thermos is a god send! Keeping hot liquids hot for 5 hours and cold things cold for up to 9 hours, my thermos keeps my lovingly handcrafted brew nice and warm during my commute to work and beyond!

You can buy Thermos products from a variety of stockists and they would make a fantastic Christmas present for those reaaalllllyyyy hard to buy for friends and family!

Monica Vinader Rose Gold and Labradorite Stacking Ring // Viktor & Rolf Bon Bon // Charlotte Tilbury The Gift of Red Carpet Skin // Marks and Spencers Heart PJs // Charlotte Tilbury Eye Pencil // Michael Kors Gold Coin Purse // Zoeva Rose Gold Cosmetic Brushes
A small but expensive Christmas List for me this year.. (whoopsies) there also seems to be a rather shimmery theme to them aswell!

The ring is a nice little stacking addition to the hammered stacking rings I got for my 30th from my sister and it's a nice nod to my gorgeous pooch who is a labradoodle.

I smelled Bon Bon the other day and if there was ever a perfume that is the scent description of SweetieSal it is this!!!

Charlotte Tilbury is just my idol so I obvs had to get some of her amazing makeup bits on my list, thought I would give the skin care a whirl, plus add to my ever growing eye pencil collection.

I love this little purse so much. Michael Kors is my fave and I don't care how basic it makes me... haha.

The Zoeva Makeup Brushes seem to be on just about ever Bloggers wishlist and I am jumping on that bandwagon!

What are you asking for from Santa this year??

Runway: Reformer Pilates Altrincham

A couple of weeks back I attended the opening of Runway Reformer Pilates Studio in Altrincham!

I haven't had a chance to try it out as yet but it looks amazing, most of the class is done on one of the machines pictured above and the workout method is a firm favourite with the Kardashians and the VS Angels so naturally I am interested in what it can do for me!

Stay tuned for when I head down to the Studio to give it a whirl!!

For further info please visit Runway's Website.

Gahhhh for winter lighting and having artificial lighting yellowy tinges to my pics! Anyways.. had to share these gems with you now didn't I?!

Despite the flack they get for being a bit copy catty.. Makeup Revolution is fast becoming a firm fave of mine due to them bringing professional style products to the masses. The bonus also being that they are very competitively priced too.

Their stand out products in my eyes are the palettes that are the cheaper alternative to the MAC Pro Palettes that everyone loves but realistically can be hard to justify the price of if you aren't an MUA. I love the concept of having lots of different shades to get my mitts on but my bank balance certainly doesn't love the prices of the MAC equivalents!

Whilst the two above palettes are technically blush palettes, the golden sugar one in particular is awesome as a multi-use palette and I have been whacking those beautifully shimmery and pigmented colours all over my face!

For £6 I really think these palettes are a bargain. You can contour to your hearts content, have a different colour blush every day or just be your beautiful self but with an extra sprinkle of sparkle all for a very cheap price.

So if you are out shopping this weekend definitely pop to your local Superdrug to check them out! You will not be disappointed!!!!
