This is just a little blog post to let y'all know I'll be moving house over the next few days and, until I get into a routine, won't be blogging for a few days. I'm moving in with the boyfriend until my new flat is ready so I'll be like a little hobo, only with manicured nails and lashings of lipgloss!
Also, like this blog post suggests, I have some news. I passed my first year of my degree in Fashion Communication & Promotion with absolute flying colours! I'm so happy! I've had a bit of a tough year and I found it hard to adapt back to full time study after spending the last few years working as a freelance writer and PR assistant but it's all been worth it. My boyfriend is treating us to Dominos and champagne tonight to celebrate- hurrah!
So, whilst I'm gone for a few days, I thought I'd leave you with a few inspiration and fun images. These pictures, all from weheartit.com, are just a few things which make me smile! Which one is your favourite?

This is my first review on Hello-Barbie so I'm hoping y'all like it. I thought I'd write about a product today that I was sent in relation to my work over at English-Wedding where I'm Bridal Fashion and Beauty Expert (I'm on a break at the moment due to crazy busy times o'clock). As I haven't got round to mentioning this on English-Wedding yet, I thought I'd do a review on here.

Yes To Tomatoes Total Treatment Mask
Available from www.victoriahealth.com
♥ What they say ♥
"Time to treat yourself. Totally treat yourself. To Tomatoes. Yes To Tomatoes Facial Mask is a total deep pore treatment that refines, purifies and even moisturises your skin, while keeping your complexion clean, clear and balanced. Filled with potent anti-oxidants that fight free radicals, and bursting with powerful sebum (acne-causing oil) absorbers, you'll be tickled red with this tantalizing treat! Go ahead, take the time to treat yourself, your skin will thank you!
- Encourages a balanced, clearer complexion
- Absorbs excess surface oils (perfect for balancing skin)
- Adds moisture to dry areas without clogging pores
Potassium rich avocado improves the skin's moisture retention which is essential to keep the skin hydrated.
Directions: Apply a thin layer to your clean, smiling face. Use a circular motion to thoroughly cover your face, avoiding your mouth and eyes. Gently wipe away with a damp washcloth after about 5 minutes. Refresh your gorgeous self with a splash of cool water and pat dry. "
♥ What I think ♥
This is probably the best face mask I have ever used! I have quite oily skin and a lot of masks tend to irritate me or do no good but I was delighted to see that this was suited to my troublesome skin type. The pot is really lightweight so it means I can easily pop it into my handbag if I'm going over to spend the night at the boyfriend's place. The product smooths on easily and dries rather quickly. As it only has to be left on for 5 minutes, this is a fab product to slap on first thing on a morning before you hop in the shower. Once you remove it, you're left with beautifully matt and cleansed skin that doesn't feel tight but fresh and awake. If you have any problems with pores or oily skin, this is a total must!
♥ My rating ♥ = 5/5. I'd buy this a million times over!
