The Best Facebook Groups For Bloggers


Facebook groups are a blogger's best friend. They're filled with opportunities, comment swaps, like-minded people and they're great for helping each other out. Today I'm sharing with you my favourite and most useful Facebook groups!

UK Bloggers
This group is my favourite, if you're ever in doubt of something then UK Bloggers is the group to ask. It's full of bloggers from every niche, with helpful documents, a thread to share your latest blog posts and opportunities from PRs, both paid and gifted. UK Bloggers was so useful to me when I created #BBLOGGERS Magazine as so many bloggers were willing to help me out.

Bloggers Helping Each Other
A side group to UK Bloggers is Bloggers Helping Each Other, this group has daily threads that will help you boost your engagement. From Instagram like swaps, comment swaps and Facebook shares.

UK Blogger Opportunities 
As the name suggests UK Blogger Opportunities is a group for UK Bloggers to find paid and gifting opportunities.

Blogger Opportunities
Similar to the last group, Blogger Opportunities is open worldwide to bloggers and features both paid and gifting opportunities.

UK Instagram Support
UK Instagram Support is a group based on increasing Instagram engagement, with weekly like swaps and comment swaps it's a great group where participation is taken seriously.

Regional Groups
There are blogger groups for different cities and regions, if you just search on Facebook I'm sure you will find one local to you. These groups are great for events around you and meeting fellow bloggers. As I lived in Sunderland at University I joined a few North East groups, now I'm back in Leicester I have joined East Midlands groups. I'll list some down below!

East Midlands Blogger Society, Leicestershire Bloggers, North East UK Bloggers, North East Network of Brilliant Bloggers

MAC Lipstick - Mehr | Review & Swatches




I'm sure it will come as no surprise that I'm completely obsessed with lipsticks, MAC and matte in particular. Today's post is a review of the popular MAC lipstick in the shade Mehr. 

On the MAC website Mehr is described as a "dirty blue pink" which is a pretty accurate description. Mehr is a "my lips but darker" shade on my pale skin tone and it looks gorgeous.

Its in the same colour family as MAC Brave but it is a tiny bit darker and matte. Mehr is an everyday shade for me as it is so easy to pull off. It pairs with a neutral eye or a smoky eye and it never looks too much.

The matte formula glides along the lips full of pigmentation and wears well before fading. It can dry your lips out as it is a matte lipstick so the lips are better off prepared with a scrub and lip balm beforehand.

I'm yet to be disappointed by any MAC lipstick and I love the shade Mehr.

What's your favourite MAC lipstick?

Primark Wish List | September



Primark is one of my favourite shops and it has definitely upped its game recently, here are my picks for September.

Black Floral Bardot Top
Bardot tops are so on-trend. I love that the floral detail will be perfect for autumn (it's creeping upon us).

Blue Racer Back Denim Pinafore
Pinafore's are so cute, and this denim one paired with a long-sleeve black top would look gorgeous!

Black Gold-Tone Zip Backpack
I've fell in love with backpacks and this one would be perfect so I can bring the kitchen sink everywhere I go (#girlproblemsright)!

Gabriella Spotty A5 Notebook
Ever since Gabby (VelvetGh0st) announced her stationery line with Primark I was dying to get my hands on it. How cute!

Glow Instant Radiance Serum
Primark have a pretty solid beauty line-up and now they've added skincare to the range. I even saw PS Love toothpaste the other day, crazy!

Gabriella Geo Stationery Set
Again, how cute is this range!

The Weekly Top Five #9

Another week has flown by - it's September already! That means that in just under three months I will be 23 years old. Mental. So let's get into what I've been loving this week...

Possibly the most expensive oil I've ever heard of (£50, gasp) Show Beauty Hair Oil leaves my hair feeling so soft and nourished. I received this in a beauty box but if I could afford to, I probably would splurge on another one. It is that good.

Justin Bieber - Purpose
I used to hate Justin Bieber but recently I've been obsessed with his songs! I might be listening to him right now...

The Good Wife
It's no secret that I'm obsessed with Netflix and my latest addiction is The Good Wife. The American Drama is centered around lawyer Alicia Florrick. After her husband (ex State's Attorney) lands himself in jail she goes back to work after 15 years to support her family. Each episode focuses on a different case where Alicia's team fight as the defence to win the case. It's such an addictive show!

I can't put this contour kit down, it's so affordable and gives me cheekbones in an instance. You can read my full review here.

Off the shoulder tops are a huge trend right now and I've been loving this gorgeous Khaki top from New Look.

What have you been enjoying this week?

Beauty Wish List | September


I haven't done a wish list in what seems like forever! And of course, I haven't stopped lusting over things. Today I'm sharing with you some new products that are on my September wish list.

Urban Decay Moondust Palette
I'm a huge lover of Urban Decay's Eyeshadows and I just need to catch them 
all (I'm obsessed with Pokemon Go, I'm sure you are too...right?)! 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette
Warm browns and burgundies are my favourite right now and this palette from Anastasia has everything I need and more.

Makeup Revolution Pro Artist Magnetic Palette
We've all established that Makeup Revolution are the Queen of dupes. This Z Palette dupe is no exception. The best part? It is £5! Yes, five whole English pounds.

Maybelline Master Contour V Stick
I love to contour and this new contour stick from Maybelline looks so innovative! 

Barry M Chisel Cheeks Contour Cream
Oh, another contour product! We're all addicts here right? This duo from Barry M looks amazing.

Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation 
Double Wear is my favourite foundation and this new release from Urban Decay looks so comparable and best of all, it claims to be waterproof. Need!

What's on your wish list this month?

Top Tips For Bleached/Silver Hair


As some of you may know, I jumped aboard the "granny" hair trend last November and my silver locks are still going strong. Bleaching your hair can be awfully damaging so here are my top tips for maintaining healthy hair.

Olaplex
Although I haven't had this treatment myself I hear so many great things! Olaplex is used whilst bleaching the hair to help protect the hair from damage. You can get an Olaplex treatment in a salon that stocks the brand and you get step three to take home and use as a treatment. It helps repair the bonds in your hair and it is something I'm definitely interested in trying!

Coconut Oil
If you are going silver at home (which I initially did too) coconut oil, - like Olaplex - will help protect the hair from damage. I tried this a few weeks ago when I re-bleached my whole head and it definitely helped lessen the damage!

Silver Shampoo
This is an essential step for me and it'll work for bleach blondes too. Silver shampoo is an intense dark purple shade, purple counteracts yellow so it'll take the brassy tones out of the hair. If you leave it on for 5-10 minutes on white hair it'll give a gorgeous silvery/lilac shade. Bleach London Silver Shampoo is my favourite!

Toner
Toner works the same as the silver shampoo, it'll give your hair intense nourishment and tone out the brassy parts. I love Jerome Russell's Silver Toner for this!

Hair Masks
Damage is part of the process when having bleached/silver hair so hair masks will become your best friend. The best masks are the ones you put on before you wash your hair. I love a coconut masks once every few weeks. Weekly I use Bleach London Reincarnation Mask, this stuff is incredible! 

Less heat
Obviously using less heat on your hair is going to help it! I need to take on this tip myself, my hair is always a mess when I wake up and I have to reach for the heat styling tools. Does anyone have any heat-free hairstyles that work?!

Cold water
Same again with heat, but instead of having a boiling hot shower try and have the water as cold as you can stand. If you can't, make sure you use cool water after conditioning your hair as it will seal the cuticles and lock moisture in.
So, there are my tips for bleached hair! If you have any tips please leave them in the comments as I would love for you to share.
