Hi! I'm Mel, welcome to my blog.

I'm a 22-year-old teacher living in Portsmouth with my better half, although I'm from South Wales and I spend quite a lot of time there visiting my friends and family.  I love buying, talking about and applying makeup; shopping; losing myself in a good book; getting addicted to trashy TV shows; going out for food and being close to the sea.

Lilies and Lipbalm is a blog filled with beauty, book reviews, good food, a bit of travel and a few lifestyle posts.  I post a few times a week about things that inspire me.

Here are a few of my favourite posts:

YSL Rouge Volupte in Peach Passion
