Moons and Stars Image

It's been a while since I have shared my faves as I fell into a bit of a routine when it comes to products, gadgets, foods etc so I didn't feel like I had much to tell you!

I have been trying some new things and I thought now was the perfect time to tell you all about them.

I'll split them into categories so they make a little more sense and where I can, I will pop a link in. Please note that some of the links will be affiliate links, they will not make the product any more expensive for you but I do receive commission should you decide to buy the item.

Let's GO!


I am LOVING my Amazon Echo Dot. Timers, radio, music, controlling the lights and SO much more, it is the Gadget I didn't know I needed but now can't live without! Along with the Echo Dot, I have also invested in Smart Plugs which means I can put the lights on with Alexa, pretty lazy but actually really useful if you are coming in with your arms full and need the lights on!

My Apple Watch is also high up there on the Faves List this year! It is really helping me be more active and I am enjoying clocking up those steps now that I have a bit more of a commute via public transport. As well as all the fitness functionality I also really love the 'Breathe' function on it which helps you concentrate on regulating your breathing if you are having a slight stress. 

Can you tell I 💖 Apple? My next fave has been my AirPods Pro. Now these are expensive. I admit. BUT. For those of you who find the normal apple headphones to be uncomfortable like me, these are such a better shape IMO and the sound and settings are incredible. It has really blown any other headphones out of the water for me as they have noise cancelling and transparency mode so you can completely immerse yourself in your music OR using the microphone be a bit more aware of the noise going on around you. I much prefer being able to hear what tram stop I'm at or hear general noise when I want to be aware of my surroundings but be able to block out the music at the gym so that I can enjoy my own. I really do love them and I feel like they have been worth every penny.


I have been loving stacking bracelets and personalising my jewellery so that it means something to me wherever I go.

There are a few brands who do this well but my faves have to be Missoma, Astrid and Miyu and Monica Vinader. I can add all the moons and stars to my hearts content!


Where do I start?! SO MUCH GREAT BEAUTY STUFF!!!!

Charlotte Tilbury has read my mind and the new Pillow Talk additions are simply divine. The Pillow Talk Eyeliner is a new fave - it's such a beautiful colour, so easy to wear and really makes the eyes pop. The original Pillow Talk Eye Palette is something I use EVERY DAY and Legendary Lashes has now become a firm favourite!

Another new fave has been the IT Cosmetics Illuminating CC Cream. I really like that it is great for my skin as well as evening out my skin tone but not feeling cakey. I really notice dry dehydrated parts of my skin during the winter and this has been a god send for not accentuating it!

My lips have been SO sore and dry recently so I bought the Bioderma Atoderm Lipbalm on a whim and OH EM GEE. Holy Grail beauty product right there. It is a game changer if you suffer with dry lips!

Much as we all have to ensure the 'pale and interesting' look at times, everyone feels better with a glow and the brand new Skinny Tan Wonder Serum Express is fantastic! You can leave on for 1 hour for a quick glow, 2 for a deeper colour and 3 for a gorgeous bronze tan. I love this as you don't have to sleep in it and it's perfect for impromptu weekend plans!

I am just going to talk about The Ordinary in general as I am seriously loving their products at the moment! Like I said, I have dehydrated skin and I have been able to use all the potions to reduce this dramatically and hopefully avoid looking like my grand old age of 35 years 😂


The only thing I want to talk about is the Topshop Four Skinny Jeans. I have been SEARCHING high and low for good skinny jeans and I have seen many people rave over Topshop jeans so decided to give a few styles a go. The Four Jeans are SO GOOD! Available in 3 washes - they are the perfect weight to suck you in but comfortable and NOT saggy after one wear - I am a convert!!!


If you haven't heard about Cheer or Love is Blind then WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? Both are amazing - reality style but not your usual scripted shhhhhh.. give them a go and you will not be disappointed!!


If you follow me on Twitter you may have noticed my disappointment about being unable to source Quorn... since having to reduce my sugar intake, follow a low GI diet and generally try and eat less meat, I have been eating a lot of quorn and meat free products. 

I work really near to 8th Day Vegetarian Health Food Shop and have been loving all the options I have to still enjoy some of my favourite comfort foods. 8th Day stock brands that make them with less refined ingredients. Particular fave has to have been sweet potato gnocchi by Biona... I've been enjoying being more creative with my cooking and introducing foods that I haven't had so much of before with more natural ingredients!

What have you been loving so far this year?
