Dr Seuss Stationery ☺

Okay, so I was a bit keen and already bought some stationery for my second year of uni in September. I just finished my exams, and had nothing to do so I went shopping in T.K Maxx and couldn’t resist these cute notepads. 

Tinder for Fashion ♡

  Oh hey there! I feel like I haven’t set aside any time for blogging in forever, because of my university exams. They’re finally over now, so I’m excited to start blogging again properly. Today I’m writing about my favourite app for fashion, Mallzee. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you might be feeling de-ja-vu, because a while back I wrote a post explaining what Mallzee is and why I love it (back when my blog was called La Carmella). 

Alice in Wonderland Nails! ♠

I can’t get enough of these Alice in Wonderland nail decals! I mentioned them in my Aliexpress post, but I didn’t show them on my nails or anything, and I thought they deserved their own review. I haven’t had much experience with nail art (except those glitter / crackle top coats you can buy, if that even counts), so I didn’t really know what to expect from these. For just over £1, I wasn’t bothered if they were crap, but I was pleasantly surprised! As you can see from the pictures, I got sent loads of different Alice in Wonderland designs, varying from…

Penguin “Little Black Classics”

Penguin “Little Black Classics” This is my first blog post since changing my blog name! It feels weird, but awesome. Anyway, I briefly mentioned in my book giveaway blog post that I ordered a load of the new Penguin “Little Black Classics”. Penguin have released 80 classic books for only 80p each to celebrate their 80th anniversary. Did I mention that they’re only 80p?! Insane.  I would probably order all of them if I could, but for now I decided to get several Classics (Greek and Roman) books because I study Ancient History at Uni, and a few other books that I’ve been…

Penguin Platform & YA Fiction Giveaway! ♡

I was recently introduced to Penguin Platform, an awesome online community across social media for young adult readers like myself. Penguin Platform provide book recommendations for teens, interviews with authors and other exclusive and fun book-related content. I was also given the opportunity to hold a book giveaway on my blog! 

My experience with Aliexpress

Aliexpress is a somewhat controversial website similar to eBay. They sell *very* inexpensive items from China, such as clothes, stationery and cute kawaii toys. I’ve seen several wishlist posts from bloggers featuring items from Aliexpress, but I’ve never seen a review, which made me slightly sceptical of the quality of products and the reliability of receiving items from sellers. I decided to go ahead and order a few items from my wishlist to see how long they would take to arrive, and judge their quality then write a review post… The things we do for blogging! I didn’t spend much…

Cute Accessories from Prairie Charms! Yesterday I received the most adorable package in the post: a mystery bag from Prairie Charms, a handmade accessories boutique. The mystery bag cost me only £5 plus delivery, and everything I got was really cute!
