I think business cards are great, they are definitely an essential for any blogger or creative. When I first started out my blog I bought some business cards because I went to alot of blog events and found them really handy to pass out to other bloggers. I don't tend to go to many blog events now and most of the ones I do go to I tend to know alot of the bloggers already. I used to be an Art student aswell, I recently graduated but throughout my course I found having business cards crucial. They make you appear professional! You have all of your contact information handy for anyone who may need it. You could meet an investor in your field or someone who just so happens to love your art work, and instead of jotting your number down on a scrap of paper that they might loose you can give them one of your fancy business cards that they can pop in their wallet. My cards are quite plain and clean, but you can use the space to suit you, I had images of my art work on my university business cards which makes they more appealing to people. I had a card holder next to my work at my degree show and so many people took my card, this can open up opportunities with people who like your work or are looking for people to work with.

I'm really happy with the quality of my business cards from,* the card is a decent thickness and they look so clean and professional. I chose a matte finish but they also do a gloss finish. They offer a great selection of prints aswell, the business cards start at 100 - 5000 prints depending on the quantity you need.

Right now are offering 20% off on all orders and already offer free delivery on orders over £50. They have fast delivery, and even offer next day delivery if you order before 11am on some items. Fastprint also print banners, leaflets and many more products.

I'm so happy with my new business cards,  I always have some in my purse and my friends and family have them handy in their wallets incase theres ever a chance someone is looking for a blogger to work with.

The Lee Stafford WonderBall WaVer is a really unusual looking hair tool. Its like a tong with balls which are used the create a wavy beach look. 

The tong comes with a heat proof mat and a heatproof glove. Its really easy to use once you get used to it. I found it abit tricky to hold. You wrap your hair around the tong and hold it for a couple of seconds and when you let go you have amazing beach tousled hair. It's amazing and so easy ! I have other curlers but they curl my hair whereas the Wonderball Waver gives you amazing beach waves. 

I think it's really easy to use and you can quickly add a few waves to your hair to make it look abit different or you could add waves to all of your hair. Spray in some salt spray for that beach hair effect. 

The Wonderball Waver heats up really fast and the barrel is infused with Argan Oil so your hair is soft and shiny. 

The Wonderball Waver Retails at £30* which I think is a great price, its available here on the Lee Stafford website


Nailbox is a monthly subscription service. Each month they send out a selection of nail polishes which are a variety of brands and shades. They have a few different package selections so you can choose to pay monthly or you can choose to pay for 3,6 or 9 months. 

The box I received included in my opinion a great selection of brands and shades. First up is one of the Rimmel 60 seconds polishes, in the shade Lucky Lilac, going from spring to summer makes lilac a perfect shade, its easy to apply and a great finish. 

Next is Nicole by Opi in Alex by the Books which is a gorgeous mint shade again a perfect spring to summer colour. Opi are a really popular nail polish brand and they usually retail at £7.99 each so £15 a month for 4 polishes is a bargain already. 

Next is an Essie polish in Status Symbol which is a lovely bright pink. A really versatile shade, a great colour for any collection. The essie polishes again are really popular and retail at about £6 or £7 each. 

Finally the Orly Color Blast in fiery orange which is a gorgeous orange glitter shade. Orly is another popular nail polish brand and well know for their great quality. The glitter polish was easy to apply and looked great even after just one coat! I applied it onto a clean nail but I think you could apply it over another colour. 

Overall i'm really impressed with the Nailbox subscription. For just £15* a month you get 4 great nail polishes that are worth well more than £15. They have put alot of thought into the brands and the shades they have picked which is great!

The next box is the July Box which is being despatched the 22nd July and is called Tropical Treats! You can subscribe here at

I like to think my Brows are pretty good! I get compliments about my eyebrows all the time and even the lady at benefit says I have perfect brows! I thought i'd share some of my favourite brow products right now!

I've used brow kits for awhile, I love how everything is all together in a compact and its so simple and easy to use. I'm loving this Soap and Glory one right now! It's really straightforward so anyone can get perfect brows with this. You start with the Gel and apply this to the brow and then apply the powder over the gel for that statement brow. This kit even contains an arch highlighter to define the brow even more. I think this kit is well worth £12* its so easy to use and you create a natural brow for everyday or a more defined brow if you prefer.

I love my Anastasia Brow products! I got these whilst I was in America and I know I will be buying these again! I start by using the Brow Wiz Pencil to get the fine line and draw the shape I desire I then use the brush part of the pencil to brush the hairs upwards and smudge the line in so it looks more natural. I then use the Dipbrow Pomade to fill in the brows. I use my EcoTools Brow brush and start in the middle of the brow, I then apply product to and create my arch and then go back on myself to the start of my brow as this is where I like just a little bit of product.

Another favourite of mine is Eye of Horus brow define* which is really similar to the Anastasia Brow Wiz. Again I use the pencil to define my brow and get the shape right and use the brush to work the product in so my brow appears more natural. The pencil is so easy to use and you get a really good straight line. I use the brush to brush up the hairs which makes it easier to get an idea of the shape you will get when you add your brow product. You can buy Eye of Horus Brow Define at Beauty Bay 



It's June! It's Summer finally! I know the weathers been abit pants but hopefully things are looking up. I really want it to be hot and sunny, I love the UK when the weathers good! I like to make smoothies and have picnics at the park! I really love festival style fashion and always go for some versatile denim shorts and some fringe accessories in the summer. These Shorts from Topshop are a lovely vintage denim and would be perfect for the summer.You could wear these with so many different tops! These Birkenstocks are perfect for the summer! Birkenstocks are so comfy so would be perfect for those long walks in the park or for a summer festival. They are simple and versatile so great for every outfit. I like this new style of Birkenstock, they are abit more feminine and I like that they are silver, these are avaliable at Jones Bootmaker. I love this fringe bag from H&M, I just love fringe accessories in the summer, this bag is a decent size and the cross over strap makes it perfect for a festival this summer. I'm loving these knitted tops right now! They are so easy to wear, you can pair them with jeans or shorts and they look so good! I have a khaki colour one from New Look, I love this Orange one, it's such an amazing colour for the summer!

I love candles I have so many in my collection!  I love this new addition from Gordon Castle. The packaging is just so sleek and modern and very simplistic. It fits in really well in my room.
This candle is called The Orangery and from the name you could have guessed its an orange scented candle. The scent is strong but not overwhelming, its quite a nice subtle scent. I think the orange scent is a really nice friendly fragrance, and leaves the room smelling clean. The candle retails at £24* which I think is reasonable for a luxury candle. The box it comes in is quite nice aswell so it would make a nice gift for someone.

The Gordon Castle candles come in a range of scents including Herb Garden and Flower Garden. Gordon Castle also sell a range of other products including body wash and bath oils.

This is an outfit I wore whilst in Dublin, I wore this on the second day when it was so hot! This dress is from Primark and was a steal at £8, I love it! Its just so simple and easy to wear. I love it with my leather jacket.
I think it would look good with tights as well as bare legs!


Red Candy Uk is a really fun website! They stock some really amazing brands such as Flamingo Candles and Happy Jackson.

They stock everything from telephones to candles to kitchen utensils! All of their products are so bright and colourful and look great! I love this vintage style telephone, it's just so quirky and fun, This mint photoframe would be a lovely addition to any room. 

Red Candy recently sent me this lovely Flamingo Candle to review, I already have a flamingo candle in a Parma Violet scent but they are just so good. I'm so happy to add another to my collection. This is Strawberry and Champagne scent, its so good! It smells like those strawberry and cream sweets with the swirl. 

I was also kindly sent some Happy Jackson lunch boxes which I haven't photographed yet but you can see them here on the Red Candy website, They are so handy and fun. They come in different sizes so they are perfect for whatever you decide for lunch!



These photos are from Saturday, we went to Birmingham to do some shopping. Clint wanted to spend his birthday money and I wanted to take a little trip to the bullring. I got some new bits from Victoria Secret which I love! I also got a new dress from H&M and a new top from New Look so it was a good day! 

The dress i'm wearing in todays outfit is from Primark it was a bargain at only £5 ! I just think its so easy to wear. I'd seen a really similar one in Zara which you can see here and this ones £15.99


A couple of weeks ago myself and Clint went to Dublin for the weekend. We went for Clints 27th birthday. Neither of us had been to Dublin before but I had researched things to do whilst we were there so we had a very busy weekend planned. 

We arrived on the Thursday night so headed straight for our hotel which was quite far out of the city center however they have a tram which we took to our hotel. The next morning we headed into the city and had some breakfast. We just went to a little help yourself place which was quick and easy so we were ready to start our day! We started off by getting tickets for a sightseeing hop on and off bus so we could get around and find out where the main attractions were, we got off at Dublin Zoo as this is a little out the way so we thought we would do this first!

The zoo was about 16 euro each and it was massive. At first I thought it seemed small but there was loads to see. I got to see penguins!! We had a lovely time at the zoo! it's really big and a great value for money we spent a good couple of hours here! 

After the Zoo we headed to the Guinness Storehouse which was another popular attraction that we had planned to visit. It's a self guided tour of the storehouse, inside you find out all about Guinness and you even get to pour your own pint! You get a complimentary pint included in the ticket price!
This was 18 euro on the door however you do save 10% if you book online, the queue was quite long however there was no queue for people with tickets so i'd recommend getting your tickets online.

After this we had a little walk around and ended up in a shopping center we found a cute burger place called rockets which did amazing burgers, and we had fries covered in bacon and cheese it was so good. We then headed for Temple Bar which i'd heard was supposed to have really good live bands and a great atmosphere and it didn't disapoint. It was so so busy but we found a seat in the beer garden. There was a great atmosphere The drinks were really expensive we paid about 18 euro for two drinks. But we had a great evening, 

The next day we got up early and had a cheeky mcdonalds breakfast. The weather was amazing so we had a walk around and ended up at a park so we got ourselves an icecream and sat down in the park. It was such a gorgeous day so it was really busy. We had a wonder around and went into some of the shops. Primark in Dublin is amazing so much better than here in Birmingham. 

We went to the Hard Rock Cafe for dinner and then went to a few little bars and pubs and had some drinks before heading back to the hotel. This was the day that the results of the marriage referendum were announced aswell so everyone was so happy and chilled out! we went down to the castle but it was so busy so we couldn't get in. 

On our last day we got up and checked out early so we could make the most of our last day. We had to get the bus to the airport so wanted to make sure we had plenty of time so we didn't miss our flight.
We got up and went for a proper irish fry up, we ended up in a cute bar that was really fancy. 
Then we made our way to Dublin Castle so we could see it properly as we didn't get to see it the day before. Then we went for a cake and a cuppa in this cute little cafe it was lovely!

Finally we went to check out the timetable for the bus and right by the stop was a waxworks so we thought we would go inside. It was 12 euro each, I have to say I wasn't impressed I didn't know most of the waxworks and the ones I did know were abit naff, they didn't look realistic at all but it was still a good laugh.

We had the most amazing weekend in Dublin, i'd recommend it for a weekend away. It's quite expensive so wouldn't say its a cheap getaway but theres loads to do if you like to walk around and sightsee!
