I used to subscribe to Birchbox, but after Christmas I decided that I would stop my subscription with them. The useability of the items I was getting started to decline, and I wasn’t prepared to spend £13 a month if I wasn’t getting the most out of the box. Of course, I could have left it there, but no. I had to go and find myself another subscription box to subscribe to. I’ve been eyeing up Papergang by Ohh Deer for ages now (as you probably know, I love stationery) so, naturally, I chose them. Here I’ll be showing you what I got in my March Papergang box, as well as another 2 bonus boxes!
I say two bonus boxes, but really I mean the March and February boxes, as well as 1 bonus box from a few years ago. I got my first subscription in February, however they had a deal on for 2 boxes for the price of one. How can you resist double the stationery for half the price? I was given the 2017 November box as my extra one – the monthly diary they gave was for November, which sucks as I can no longer use it, but the products in there were gorgeous so all is forgiven.
I’ve never done a makeup look on my blog before, nor am I a makeup guru by any means. I enjoy experimenting with my eyeshadow when I wear it but that isn’t often! I’m either bare face or everything but eyeshadow – it’s a lot quicker when I’m going to Uni to leave out that stage completely. It’s a shame because I think it’s the best part of doing your makeup!
When I was approached by FalseEyelashes.co.uk to review some of their eyelashes, I jumped at the chance! I thought it would be a perfect way to integrate makeup looks onto my blog, and give me an excuse to play around with eyeshadow again. In the end I decided to go for a pink glittery makeup look, as I love defying the old “redheads can’t wear pink” mindset – I think it’s a gorgeous colour for redheads, and I hope you like it, too!
Last summer, my boyfriend and I decided to go to Iceland for our (first) summer holiday together and had an amazing time! We went to Reykjavik for 5 days, and it was plenty of time to explore the beautiful city, and take a day trip out of town. With uni, writing other blog posts and life getting in the way, it has taken me ages to narrow down the photos I wanted to use, edit them, and actually compile all my thoughts! However, since we will all be thinking about booking our summer holidays soon, it seems like a perfect time to bring out my recommendations on what to do in Reykjavik.
My first tip is to dedicate some time to walking around the city centre. There is so much beauty from street art, cute buildings and interiors, amazing food and gorgeous landscapes. It’s a great idea to plan out your days and activities before you leave for your travels, but I have always found that you find the cutest, quirkiest spots when you take some time to follow your feet and see where they take you.
