Teaching | Dear Year 1

As it's coming to the end of the school year, I thought I'd share with you some letters I'd like to write to the classes I've worked with this year. Though I started my volunteering slightly earlier and with an older class, I thought I would write to the little ones first. So, here it is!

Am I Getting Bored With Social Media?


It sounds a strange title for a blog post doesn't it? I mean - bloggers are supposed to be the most social people on planet if you believe the media.

Review | Nip and Fab Glycolic Fix Cleanser


It's a little while since I've written about skincare here, which really just isn't right! So today I'm giving you a review of the Glycolic Fix Cleanser from much-loved drugstore meets high end brand Nip and Fab. It's something I've seen reviewed a couple of times but actually haven't heard that much about in the blogosphere. So when I saw it in Boots recently, my previous cleaner being on its last legs (Avene Extremely Gentle Cleanser Lotion, review here if you're interested), I decided to give it a go. I'd been looking to try something from Nip and Fab's range for quite a while so the Glycolic Fix cleanser seemed like a good choice.

Inspirations | Granddad Tiffs


Welcome to the second post in my new 'Inspirations' series, where I'll talk about people in my life who have or do inspired me. This second post is about my dad's dad, and if you read the previous post, my grandma's husband. He passed away just over three years ago but he still inspires me every day, so he was a natural choice.

Reading List Update 1



So, last month I wrote about starting a new six month long reading list. You may or may not remember that I said I would read three books each month, then mini-review them in an update the following month. Here's the first one!

Achievements | June


I really look forward to writing these posts each month - I can't wait to look back on them at the end of the year! I've not been up to that much this month, but I have done a couple of things I'm pleased with, so I'll tell you a bit more about them now!

Love, Lipstick and Life #18


This June has been one of those simultaneously long and short months - I'm sort of wondering where it went but at the same time it feels a while since I wrote May's version of LLL. Want to see what I've been up to anyway?
