A VERY LATE WHAT I GOT FOR CHRISTMAS 2017!

Soooo... I er know it’s nearly March, but I’ve been meaning to do a What I Got for Christmas post since the day itself, but third year of uni has taken over, and I’ve been focusing all my time and effort into being a social media volunteer for a local Oxfam store! It’s been incredibly exciting!

I normally put the long disclaimer here, but hopefully you all know I just like to post these as a means of being able to look back at the lovely things I was gifted over the years. So get ready for a very photo heavy post, I think it’s appropriate here, pictures speak louder than words.

So my boyfriend kindly got me two French Connection underwear sets, one black and one white (hella flattering guys), the most gorg Puma joggers to lounge in whilst using the Movie night set!

MY SECOND BLOGGER EVENT! KARMA LAUNCH AT LUSH SPA LEEDS!

I was recently invited to my second blogger event, which excited me greatly as it was at one of my fave shops...Lush! As if lil old me got invited...I am literally still so grateful beyond words. I've only ever been to one other blogger event before, and that was at All Bar One in Leeds for a fabulous night which you can read all about . Lush Spa Leeds you held the best night ever, and it gave me the perf opportunity to take the most colourful photos ever!!


So yeah, my sister and I (took lil Maddy along cos she's a big Lushie, if that's even a thing), and we headed to Leeds, nervous but excited for the night to come...

I'M BACK!!! EXCITING NEWS!

Wow, this feels strange, to be writing my first blog post since December 2016. It's crazy how long I've been away, but I wanted to write something, I'm just in a Lush bath currently, feeling ever so inspired. I. Need. To. Write.


I stopped blogging because I became disinterested, I wasn't happy with it, I wanted to fixate on learning how to take the best flat lay, coming up with exciting beauty posts, keeping up with trends that were occurring in the blogger and YouTube community. But that's not me (I don't think I'll ever be able to get Kem and Chris out of my head). This is to an extent anyway... I'm just not great at photographing products, I don't have good lighting, and my bedroom is most certainly not Pinterest/Tumblr inspired... *yet, watch this space*.

FEELING FESTIVE WITH BOOHOO!*

I can't even believe I'm writing this post, nor the fact I got the opportunity to work with Boohoo on something?!?!? whaaaat. The lovely Faith contacted me in regards of some very festive and fun Christmas jumpers*, for not only me, but MY DOG!!! Like how could I pass that opportunity up seriously?



If you know me, you know I'm a Christmas and dog fanatic, so combine the two and you're onto a winner. Think me and a gorgeous little fluffy Maltese crossed with a Bichon twinning in matching Christmas jumpers. Nothing beats that.

LUSH | FROZEN BATH BOMB!

Let it go. Let it gooooo. What? You really expected me not to start off my blog post with a Frozen song? I've been waiting all too long to get my hands on this lil beauty, and I wasn't disappointed.



Ya know when you just crave a Lush bath? That's the feeling that occurred to me last night, I hadn't had one in a while, and I've been having some trouble sleeping recently, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to have a relax in the tub.

ONE BRAND FOCUS | TECHNIC COSMETICS!

Recently I received the most exciting package ever, I was literally like a child opening Christmas presents. were lovely enough to send me some of their makeup products, and I can't wait to share them with you!


Technic has been one of my favourite brands for years, I have so many of their products, so I was absolutely ecstatic to try some more! They offer such incredible products for a really affordable price. P.S Blogger has reduced my photo quality, and I'm not sure why, so please forgive me!

TENERIFE TRAVEL DIARY!

On the 24th of August my family and I headed to Manchester airport, where we would soon be getting on our flight to Tenerife. I mean, we nearly missed the flight...so potentially this post could have been non existent...


I had a lovely week abroad, leaving all my troubles and worries behind in England, no doubt in my mind that they would be there to welcome me back once I arrived home. I love writing travel posts, and including a rather long photo diary (sorry about that), so hopefully you enjoy this!

TRAVEL | HEBDEN BRIDGE!

Last week my sister, grandma, aunty and I took the train to Hebden Bridge, a market town in West Yorkshire. I'd never been before, but I'd heard glorious remarks about this little town from family and friends who promised it was lovely and very photo-worthy.


Safe to say I was not left disappointed, it was very picturesque and had a tranquil, relaxing atmosphere to it. We didn't get up to much, but we ventured into the cutest shops, and had the nicest meal ever, seriously you have to see the photos.

REBECCA READS | REVIEWS

This is so long awaited. No, seriously. I constantly buy a library's worth of books, and always forget to sit down and review one. When one book finishes, another one opens. 



I'm a literal bookworm. I have tons and tons of books, so I'm very excited to actually sit down and review some of my latest reads for you!

INVITATION TO ITALY!

I've been so excited to write this post for you, but I've been so busy lately, I haven't had the chance to sit down at home, open up my laptop, and begin to type, and let's not forget to add with a cup of tea at the side of me. Obviously got to have a cuppa to get the brain flowing.


On the 11th July I managed to mentally check off something on my bucket list, I visited the beautiful city, Italy. My bestie recently moved over there, so we made pretty quick and spontaneous plans for me to come visit. I even travelled there and back on my own, which was definitely an accomplishment. I'm so excited to share with you my adventure through words and photos, it was an amazing experience.

ANOTHER TRAVEL POST!

Recently I had to travel to Liverpool for a 1 day premium passport, as a week before my holiday I realised my passport had run out...can you imagine the mayhem and tears? I genuinely couldn't believe I had been so slack to not even check my passport, lolz.



On a more positive note, it meant I was able to explore Liverpool for the first time, and see what the city had to offer. And I wasn't disappointed....

YORKSHIRE SCULPTURE PARK!

I've been away from blogging for so long, I can't find the motivation or inspiration anymore, which upsets me, as I used to be so passionate about my blog. I decided it was time to write up a post, that was meant to be done at the beginning of this month. I visited Yorkshire Sculpture Park this month and had the best time, so naturally I had to document it for you.



I think the photographs speak for themselves, and have captured the beauty of the place pretty well, I also plucked up the courage to vlog there too, so if you want to check out my latest Youtube video that would be amazing and I'd love you forevs.

LONDON TRAVELS | AND MY FIRST EVER VLOG!

This post is long over due. On the 18th of May, me and my gals Natasha and Mariam went to London, and wow what an experience that was! We had the best time, but it was also really stressful, London is such a fast paced city, it's safe to say we spent most of our time travelling about.


However, we did manage to go to the Harry Potter Studios, Sky Garden, Ice Bar, and Madame Tussauds! And whilst I was out and about, I vlogged for the first time!

REBECCA READS | BOOK HAUL #2

I've decided to make 'Rebecca Reads' into a little mini series, I mean, it would make sense, taking into consideration how many books I buy. And last week was no exception. I went to Tesco's to go food shopping with my boyfriend, and I came home with six new books!


I asked you last time if you wanted to see reviews of the books once I'd finished reading them, but I have that many it's taken me a while to get round to doing that. However, I will get round to it, so let me know if you want me to do the same with these new ones too!

Hello everyone! Hope you're all well! I'm so excited to bring you this post, because I know like me, you love candles. You're a candle hoarder right? Yeah. thought so. So, after receiving the opportunity to try out a candle from, I jumped at the chance, what better to add another to my collection?

I normally opt for Yankee candles, however they are on the more expensive side, so I was intrigued to put this candle to the test, as it's priced at an affordable £5! And let me tell you, this candle is...

SHARING THE LOVE WITH BAKER DAYS!

I was recently contacted by the lovely people at , who asked if I would like to review one of their Letterbox gift cakes. How could I turn that down? I love food.


I opted for the cake, as the image of chocolate spread was just too cute to pass up, and the fact that you can personalise it, was a bonus. I can't wait to tell you how it tasted...
