Happy Saturday, friends!

I hope you've had a great week.

Some of you might remember that a couple months ago I ran a huge 'Student September' series, which featured some amazing guest posts and some really lovely sponsored content. I really just wanted to give something to the students of 2020, who have had so much taken away from them. However, I am more than well aware that university is not for everyone. I know a number of people who dropped out of uni because it had a seriously negative effect on their mental health, and there should be absolutely zero shame in that. So this Saturday, I want to honour those of you who did not (or will not) go to university, with a guest post written by the fabulous Emma Wells...

My All Time FAVOURITE Oversized Plaid Shirts | Ad Gifted

Saturday, 14 November 2020

 Happy Saturday, friends!

I hope lockdown isn't getting you down... but if it is, check this post out for some self-care tips.


I love me a good oversized shirt- any day, and any season. They're just such a VIBE. So when Femme Luxe Finery sent me an email asking whether I would like to review their new oversized button-up shackets, I was so down. Mind you, I had no idea what a 'shacket' was- but as soon as I read the words "oversized" and "button up", I was in...

Styling The New Season Trench | Ad Gifted

Wednesday, 11 November 2020

Happy Wednesday, friends!

I hope hump day isn't hitting you too hard.


If you've been anywhere near Instagram over the last month, you'll have seen an absolute FLURRY of gorgeous dogtooth trench coats. Maria J Blogs practically broke the internet with her insta post wearing this black-and-white coat, but when I went to purchase it, I soon realised that it was just that little bit too pricey for my strict student-teacher budget. Thankfully, after a bit of a hunt on the internet, I found this LUSCIOUS dogtooth coat on the Katch Me website, which is currently priced at £44.

Happy Friday, friends. 
I hope you are looking after yourself this week.

Damn. 2020's been a rough year... and it's still going. Now, not only is it SAD season, but a second lockdown is just on the horizon where I live in Scotland. I know how tough it's been for a lot of people, so for today's post I've decided to partner with Femme Luxe Finery to bring you some amazing self-care tips for the Autumn & Winter months. 

I hope this helps.

5 Happy Things | October 2020

If you read the post that I wrote back in July about the '3 Good Things That Happened During My Break From Blogging', you might remember that I talked a little bit about a regular feature that I used to have on my blog, called "5 Happy Things". At least once a month, I would sit down with my bullet journal and list all the things that had made me smile or filled me with joy... and then from that I would hand-pick the 5 most significant things which I would write about. Sometimes I would write about things as simple as the weather, or the TV shows I was watching. Other times, I would write about more intimate, personal things.

Well, today I decided to revisit that old tradition.

A Letter To My Younger Self | Guest Post By Nadine Krill

Today's post comes from my good friend Nadine, who I incidentally met on TikTok, of all places. I actually featured on an episode of her podcast (the 4:14 podcast) last month to talk about all things blogging, so click here if you want to check it out!! Nadine is a really strong, passionate, and caring young woman who has a real heart for ministry, and so she has written a letter to her younger self... and I truly believe this letter is a beautiful reflection of Nadine's loving soul. Enjoy...


Jolie Beauty Second Skin Collection Review | Ad Gifted

Saturday, 10 October 2020

Happy Saturday, friends! 
I hope you are feeling beautiful this week. 

I haven't always been keen on using blusher. But long gone are the days where we would all pack on an ungodly amount of contour & bronzer every day, and finish off with a heavy matte lipstick. Nowadays, I'm a lot more comfortable with myself, and my makeup routine definitely reflects that. Most days, all it takes is a couple dabs of concealer to brighten my face, a bit of bronzer & blusher to sculpt, and I'm good to go. 

It's taken me a while to find an affordable blusher/bronzer combination that sits well on my skin without appearing too harsh, so I was over the moon when Jolie Beauty reached out to me asking if I could review some products from their brand new Second Skin collection.

6 Lessons I Learnt While Reading 'A Love Letter Life' by The Roloffs

Saturday, 3 October 2020

Hey friends! Happy Saturday.

I just want to kick off today's post by letting you all know that this is NOT an ad!! I genuinely love this book deeply. Actually, the six 'lessons' I'm going to be talking about were originally noted down in my bullet journal waaaaaaay before I even returned from my blogging hiatus. 


Jeremy and Audrey Roloff are an incredibly inspiring Christian couple who live in Bend, Oregon (in the US). They met 10 years ago, in January 2010, on a blind date set up by mutual friends. But believe it or not, they didn't actually hit it off the first time they met. Not that you'd ever be able to tell that looking at them now, with their seemingly picture-perfect family.
