Seafood Paella Recipe

I can't get enough of seafood lately! This little dish is the perfect feel-good meal to use up anything left over in the fridge and fill you up.

MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter in Light Boost

Working a ten hour day has been a bit of a shock after spending three years at uni taking mid-day naps and waking up half way through the day, and the biggest tell-tale sign is the bags under my eyes.  I am still loving my Estee Lauder Flawless Finish Double Wear concealer for coverage, but I was definitely needing a bit of glowy goodness.

Recipe: Moules Mariniere

Since moving out of my parents house and into my little flat with Rob, we've both enjoyed trying out different recipes and this is one of our new favourites. We have been to the South of France a few times with my family, and we both really enjoy eating mussels while we're there, so we had a search on the internet for a recipe to make our own at home.  We ended up mashing a few recipes together to suit the ingredients we had at home, and it turned out to be delicious! This recipe is suitable for two people.

Dipping My Toe into Chanel

I have loved beauty for a good five years, but I have never been able to justify the price of Chanel products (as much as I've wanted to!).  Back in December when I unwrapped this little beauty, I'm pretty sure my face lit up - my first peep at a Chanel product and I'm certain it won't be my last.

Surviving the First Term of Being a Primary NQT

This picture basically sums me up 99% of the time since September.

Back in September 2014 I walked into my new classroom with a fully stocked pencil case, a packed lunch and a grin on my face looking like an absolute fool.  After 20 minutes I realised I wasn't even close to ready for this - a degree in Primary Education hadn't prepared me in the slightest, and I was out of my depth.  There were children climbing out of windows (thankfully not in my class), staff yelling orders at me and stacks of marking to battle through before morning break.

Urban Decay Full Frontal Lipstick Stash

Lately I've fallen head-over-heels for Urban Decay.  Until recently I never looked twice when passing the stand in Debenhams, but now I just can't help myself.  As soon as I spotted this little beauty on Instagram I knew I wouldn't be able to resist and it definitely hasn't let me down!
