THE Diary

There is a new wave of interest in the social media app Snapchat (yes, I'm on there! Search seraemily), all of my favourite bloggers seem to be hightailing it over to fill us in on their recent purchases and bits they're loving, all in handy snippets of video. It's been fantastic to finally meet the personalities behind some of my own favourite blogs.

One drawback is, it's even more enabling if you're anything like me... It's easy to stay away from reading blogs when you've no money to indulge in pretty things BUT with Snapchat you see it unless you ignore Stories (which I have tried and failed at).

It's safe to say I'm laying the blame firmly at Snapchat's door for this product, after seeing it on Maria's story (catch it on her blog here) and then Michelle from Satchels & Pearls further enabled the need and desire to own such a beautiful piece of stationery.

Vamp London

I recently happened upon a brand that I've since fallen head over heels in love with. On discovery, a handful of items were instantaneously added to the wishlist, particularly from their Sahara Collection.

Vamp London have a number of collections worth casting your magpie eyes over, though it's the spirit of the Sahara Collection that has really grasped my imagination.

The written introduction to the Sahara Collection on the Vamp London website had me feeling incredibly wistful and full of wanderlust after reading it:

Recipe: Goats Cheese, Roast Pepper & Spinach Crustless Quiche

A lot of our meals here recently are geared towards helping us feed our minds and our body's. I'm becoming a convert to the notion ''healthy body, healthy mind'' and a big part of that is re-educating myself in regards to food. This has pushed us to be a little more open minded in regards to recipes and this particular dish was thrown together with whatever we had lying in the fridge. It turned out rather well and so I thought I'd share it with you as it's a great protein packed dish that is also very low-fat friendly, if you're adhering to that kind of thing!

I've also included a quick-fire recipe for a great homemade potato salad that hardly takes any effort at all, makes a great side for this dish and is always annihilated any time I make it. 


Makeup Revolution Anti Bacterial Makeup Brush Cleaner

I am absolutely terrible when it comes to cleaning my makeup brushes and I've recently vowed to get more on top of doing so... more often than I do now. In my endeavor to do so I invested in some makeup brush cleaner from Makeup Revolution and gave it whirl.

Healthy Body Healthy Mind

Starting a new chapter (or new blog entirely, as I've done here) means I get to catch you up on some things without muddying where I am now with where I was then. Long time readers of The Agoraphobic Fashionista blog will know that I went through a (well documented) journey with Slimming World. There were pros and cons to that journey and I really do wish to share them with you.

Through my time with Slimming World I was able to lose over 11 stone in weight. In my own personal situation, it was weight I had to lose for health reasons. This isn't always the case as size and health do NOT go hand in hand, this was my own personal set of circumstances, everybody's is different.


The Melt Crowd | Flamingo Candles

Everyone loves a subscription box, until you get bored of them (if you're anything like me, that can happen rather quickly!) but Flamingo Candles have come up with a way to combat the tired beauty box subscription services, by introducing a melt subscription box!
