Finding A Space That Works For You.

Thursday, 24 August 2017

It can be hard to create a space that works as both a bedroom and creative zone. Whether its somewhere to do your make up, to work or a cosy reading nook, there needs to be a divide between that and your sleep space (which can be hard to achieve in one room)I recently moved my bedroom around and I am finally starting to feel like it's the perfect mix. Today I wanted to show you my desk space. I have switched it up slightly, adding more golden and earthy tones in the form of decor. 

I have been picking up trinkets for a little while now, some you may have seen on Instagram and others are new. Most of the bits are from TK Maxx but I do have items from Primark, Laura Ashley, Ikea and local carboot sales too. It's important to pick things up along the way, rather than buying everything in one go. I just feel like everything seems a little bit more personal that way. Oh, and my plants. I can't live without those can I! My fiddle-leaf fig is from Lidl, believe it or not it was only £10.

So yeah, that is my current desk situation. It is forever changing so the next time you see it, it will probably be completely different. But for now it inspires me and for that, I love it.

Where is your work space?

Skin Kissed Skin & Facial Serum.

Tuesday, 15 August 2017
Main active ingredients contain: Vitamin C + Hyaluronic Acid  + Collagen
I think I may have spoken about this before but I always tend to steer away from serums and oils. I just imagine them being greasy and sitting on top of the skin, but not this one. Skin Kissed promises to plump and hydrate the skin, remove acne, reduce fine lines, wrinkles and blemishes and leaves the skin feeling soft. The biggest difference I have seen though is when applying my make up. It makes blending the foundation soooo much easier and gives a flawless finish. My mum has been using it too and she loves it. She's into anything that softens the skin and reduces wrinkles & fine lines.

So I usually apply this serum in the morning as soon as I wake up. I use 4 drops and massage it into the skin, concentrating around my nose and forehead (my trouble areas). By the time I head down stairs to do my make up it is completely dry and soaked into the skin. It gives the skin a super soft and almost matte feeling finish. I haven't noticed a massive difference with my spots yet, but I did end up squeezing them the other day (stupid I know!) so I probably haven't helped. I really want to focus on getting rid of these spots, so I'll deffo update you with my progress. It has reduced the redness around my nose and forehead though, that seems to have calmed down a lot.
Oh, and can we talk about the bottle? I am loving anything gold and antique looking at the minute. It fits right in on my dressing table full of trinkets and plants.

definitely think this serum is worth trying out and if you're not happy with your results they offer a 30 day money back guarantee. Win!

Have you ever tried the Skin Kissed serum?

Sunflowers, Nobody's Child & Insta.

Tuesday, 8 August 2017

Currently sat here munching on an apple (pink lady, obvs) wondering what the heck to write. I feel inspired photography wise, but I haven't got a clue what to waffle on about. It's the worst thing ever!! Well, not ever but 'blogger' wise it is. So yeah, who knows what this post is going to be about. 

I know, lets talk about some things I have been loving recently... Like sunflowers. I didn't realise how cheap they were! I got mine from Asda for like £3 and they lasted ages. I also love gypsophila too, they are so delicate and also really cheap. I hate paying loads for flowers, just because they die so quickly. Well, they usually do from the supermarkets anyway. Wow, this is fab content Poppy, haha! What else have I been loving? Oh, so I found this clothing website called Nobody's Child. You may have heard of them before but I only discovered them a few weeks ago. I purchased some trousers from them and they fit me perfectly. I usually struggle with trousers/bottoms because of my height and body shape but these fit like a glove. They are a tiny bit shorter on me than on the model but I don't mind that, they kind of look better that way I think. That might be an idea, I could do a post on 'How To Find The Perfect Trousers'. That's one to put in the blog post memory bank. They have a cute Instagram feed too. Talking about Insta, I am loving my feed at the minute. My style has changed, againnnnnn. I go for a lot more richer colours, like the touches of yellow and gold you can see on my feed at the mo. I am also loving shadows, there is a post about that here. At one point if an image of mine had any shadows in it, it wouldn't make it on my page. Now, I wait till the sun is setting to take my photographs. The lighting hits my desk perfectly and causes the most beautiful shadows.

So yeah, thats what I am loving at the minute. Flowers, clothes and Insta. Nothing has changed haha!
