DIY Makeup Beauty Prints

Here's a DIY for the makeup lover and the home decor enthusiast! This is a really easy project to try that requires an hour of your time, some makeup (old or new, it's up to you) and a few picture frames. Wall art can be so expensive and although Etsy is full of beautiful beauty-themed prints it's cheaper and a lot more fun to make your own. If you've a blank wall at home that needs some love (perhaps above your dressing table) then these beauty art prints are just what you need. Plus, they are completely unique to you!

Lingerie this Valentine's Day

There's no better excuse than Valentine's Day to treat yourself to new lingerie. It doesn't matter if you're in a relationship, single or it's complicated. Pretty undies are for you! I love these longline lace bralets* from boohoo, I have both the black and white version. For lingerie that's very feminine and delicate they are still really comfortable. So in the words of Tom and Donna from Parks & Rec, treat yo self.

Valentine's Day Photo Gifts

Printed photographs make wonderful presents for that special person in your life. Whether that's your partner, wife, boyfriend, sister or best friend. I love sharing photos on Instagram or Twitter but once in a while it's a nice idea to get your favourite images printed. I'm always delighted to receive photo gifts and last week Cheerz offered me the chance to try out their new Valentine's Day products including the photobooth style Love Strips and a pretty pink twist on the classic Cheerz Box...

iPhone Camera Lenses

I received these iPhone camera lenses for Christmas from my wonderful boyfriend, who knows photography is not only my career but a real passion (as is my phone). I usually take photos with a beefy DSLR and heavy 24-70mm lens but I always have my phone in my pocket for taking snaps. The iPhone 6 camera is superb, I'm really impressed with the quality of images you can achieve, and I've been thinking about trying out phone lenses for some time but I wasn't too sure what to buy. There are so many on the market to choose from, some three in one lens sets are really expensive whilst others you can find on Amazon for between £5-£10. 

I don't know the exact make/model of this particular set of three lenses (as they were a gift) but Josh informs me they are from Amazon and under £10! In most sets you'll find a Fish Eye lens for fun portraits, a Macro lens for getting up close with lots of detail and a Wide Angle lens for landscape photos. It should be said that these lenses will work for many camera phone models (not just iPhone). For the past couple of weeks I've had chance to test them out but I'm still practicing. Here's my review on these lenses so far...
