Autumnal Must Have Nail Polishes

3 colours! This is all you need for this Autumn season nail polish collection. I selected for you the 3 colours that is a must have for any outfit from out in the the colder nights, misty mornings, or cosy evenings. Yet again I have to admit that I utterly love L'Oréal Nail Polishes Collection, it might not be the biggest one to choose from, but somehow they know what are the right shades that are going to fly off the shelves. Why providing hundred of shades when you can provide the best one instead?
Below is my little L'Oréal collection which lately have been well loved since the Autumn season began. And they are :

Why I love Autumn | Lifestyle

Autumn, that one season that I look forward every single year. I am always so happy when it start and so sad when it end. I really dislike Summer, I know I must be mad but I hate the heat, hate being tanned, hate feeling hot, not sleeping well at night because of the heat, never know what to wear especially when you are a big girl like me etc. The only thing I love about Summer it's that I know that as soon as it end my favourite season will start.

Essence Nail Polish collection

I have a little confession: I am a huge fan of Essie and I always been faithful to their product but when you do not always have the found to pursuit your addition then usually my second or third choice of nail polish, to add to my collection, is Essence
Essence is a very affordable make up collection but what usually draw me to their counter its their always very colourful nail polishes selection, They are almost like little sweet in a candy shop and whatever colour you like you are almost guarantee to find it and at around £1.60 you really can't go wrong. Also the quality is there, despite the price.
The past few weeks have been loving those 4 nail gel polishes by Essence. To be fair they are the only 4 that I own by this brand but I certainly will get few more in the near future.

How To Grow Followers

How to grow your following? This is the question that most bloggers will wonder at some stage of their blogging adventure (mostly at the beginning) & I'll be honest with you no one has the secret ingredients, even if many people will tell you otherwise by claiming they can double your followers in two days, honestly its much harder than that. Blogging is freaking hard work but one or two things that will help you immensely are to follow below along with also what you should not do. Also before going any further I would like to point out that the tips below are my own opinions from my 3 years experience as a blogger but I hope they'll come in useful and help you along the way.

Banbury Food Fair | Lifestyle

Well If you know me , then you would know that I love food and especially food market/ fair. What more is to love when you are surrounded of great foods from different corners of the globe! This year my little town organised (like apparently every summer) one of those event and, I'll be honest with you because I just left London (after living there for  about 18 years) I was not too sure what to expect from my new little town (Banbury- Oxfordshire) food market I knew how amazing they are in London but I was not too sure how my little town will compare.

The One That Was Dewy | Review

I am guilty, yes guilty to admit that I have been a little sheep (on this occasion anyway) and only bought the L'Oréal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation because one of my favourite bloggers keeps raving about it on some of her vlogs, blogs etc. and I fell for it so I had to have it. That blogger is Anna from The Anna Edit by the way. I don't know if I should say thanks you to her or not but in this instance because it is such a great product I 'll say thank you.

Morning Skincare Routine

I realised lately that I have never done a Morning Skincare Routine post. I know, where have I been? I can ensure you I've been around but definitely not on the trend wagon that's for sure ("please can someone wake up Marie on the back sit please?"). But lately I am definitely feeling that wagon and mostly the love that I have found again with my skincare routine. Skincare is my thing, although I love make up and I would never have enough lipsticks (despite my partner saying otherwise), I just really can't live without smothering my face with nice smelly lotions and potions! 
So what has been on my morning routine lately:

Soaper Duper | Review

Soaper Duper is the new kid on the block, the little one that I feel will soon be on the trendy wagon BUT here to stay.
It perhaps doesn't look like much but when you know their products are supporting the Water Aid & Clean The World foundations and that it is made without plastic microbeads, parabens, colourants, sls/sles or any of the other usual suspects you'll then know that whatever is in those bottles is good stuff for you and the planet.

So you want to start a blog | Part 2

This is my part 2 on my little series: 'So you want to start a blog'. On my first part that you can find here, I talked about finding the right platform for your blog, choosing a blog name, design and writing posts. Overall it was the blogging starting point a bit like if you were packing, getting your passport & flight ticket ready for a trip abroad if you like. But if you still new and you have now your brand new blog for few weeks in this fantastic world of blogging, or just curious to know more perhaps there is few bits and bobs that you should know and in my opinion follow. hence again I would just address that I am in now way a professional blogger as such but I been there a little while, almost 4 years for that matter, and I guess you could say I learned from my mistakes and also by observing, making note and interacting. I see it as a community and I like to share too. So here my second part and this time around I'll talk about Honestly in blogging, comments, posting or not posting & worrying about your blog.

Génifique by Lancome | Review

Lancome is for me a brand that we don't get to hear very often, and that is a shame. I've known this brand pretty much since I was at school and had pony tails on each side of my head (and trust me when I said this was many, many, many years ago) & when my mum had shelves full of this brand along with a few other iconic ones. I still remember the smell of her Lancome lipsticks and all her creams and potions.

The Past Few Weeks #5 | baby, Wedding & New House.

Its been a while since I have written a new chapter of my The Past Few Weeks series, the last one was in October last year which you can find here
So since end of last year, what have been happening?  As you may remember I announced my pregnancy last October. I was at the time about 5 months pregnant and now, obviously, I am no longer pregnant and I have, as I am typing this post, a 6 months adorable baby lying by my side. Her name's Émeline, she is our everything, a little bunch of pure happiness for my fiancé and I. She was born the 4th February at 38 weeks weighing no more than a little 2 kg 540  (5.5 pounds) a very little baby that made her even more precious to us. She is healthy, beautiful and we love her more than words can describe. 
I would love to show her to the world though my blog but I never agreed on plastering pictures of babies / kids in general on social medias so she'll stay off those platforms until she is big enough to decide for herself.

Wales | A Romantic Picture Tale

Wales...One of my favourite locations for a romantic get away. For the beaches, the colours, the nature, the wildlife and their people...
At the back end of last year my fiancée decided to take his pregnant lady as in : ME! To a week away far from London, work stress & city noises for a well deserve rest for the mind & body and what better place than the very lavish and green Wales. We stayed at Saundersfoot a pretty little sea side town with it's harbour on the South East Coast, it's long sandy beach, picturesque pubs & local delicateness.
