Collective Haul | New Look, Boohoo, Ikea & More!

 I've had quite a few hauls going on in the last month or so, clothes for my upcoming holiday and some bits and pieces for my home. The spending hasn't stopped, unfortunately, but that isn't always a bad thing because I've welcomed some seriously nice additions into my life. I'm pretty sure they'll be another haul come early October so keep a look out for that!

Makeup Revolution Romantic Smoked Palette | Review

I can't express how much I've wanted this palette since the release of Makeup Revolution over 6 months ago. I keep asking myself why I didn't get it sooner, looking at the palette now I'm sort of glad I didn't. Romantic Smoked is the most beautiful palette with a mix of mattes and shimmers. There's 12 shades in total, each beautifully pigmented. I think the shades are just perfect for Autumn, and even nicer for weddings.

OTTD | Pre-Autumn

Autumn it feels is just round the corner, though, it seems the weather has other ideas. I can't remember a time when the weather was really this glorious when we're leaving September and heading towards October. I didn't expect the weather to be so wonderful yesterday and headed out in a coat - which ended up being swapped for a cardigan. I did, however, mix it up with various Summer/Autumn styles; Tights, boots, dress with cut out, flowers prints in Autumn shades.

Knowsley Safari Park | Our Day Out

 A British Sparkle seemed to have turned over a new leaf at the moment, it very much seems to be goodbye beauty hello lifestyle, personal posts. I've really enjoyed sharing with you what me and the children have been up to over the Summer holiday's and hopefully giving you some inspiration to visit these wonderful places yourself. I hope you have enjoyed reading them just as much as I've enjoyed writing them. Now the holiday's are completely over, and I have a little more spare time, I'm going to pay more attention to my blog and even more attention to you. I've not so much neglected my blog and definitely have been paying attention to it in the back ground still, just writing a little less. I'd like to say I'll be writing more posts, but I won't, not because I don't want to but because there's just not enough hours in the day. I've been putting idea's together to write a novel and I want to start concentrating on that, with that blogging does take a little back seat but it's never far from my thoughts and I shall be posting at least 10 posts a month, if not more, when I can. Like blogging, writing stories is very much a big hobby and something I'm deeply passionate about - something I've done all my life - but don't fear beauty is here and I have some beauty related posts planned in the very near future, a few days away in fact.

A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That | Haul

 It's safe to say I've been on a little bit of a splurge recently and treated myself to a few bits and pieces. If you follow my blog you'll have seen my Summer sale haul, if you've not read it then you can do so here. I'm back today with another haul this time it's a little bit of this and little bit of that.

Lifestyle: Day trip to Scarborough

 This particular day we woke up and had planned to go to Southport. Typically, this was the day it decided the heavens were going to open, cancelling our trip to Southport with the downpour set for the day. So, we got in the car and drove to the sunshine that awaited us on the East coast up in Scarborough, almost 3 hours away from out home. The thing's we do for a little bit of sunshine in the UK, or maybe that's just us!

Summer 'sale' Haul

Tops both from Primark. The first, Light Weight Swing Cami - £1.00, Seamfree Cami - £3.00
I recently embarked on a shopping spree and treated myself to a new Summer wardrobe - when Summer is almost over, I know - using money I made from my most recent blog sale. I chose the right time, really, considering the sales have begun and I'm going on holiday soon!  Summer maybe coming to an end but judging by the news of 13 weeks of sunshine (unsure I believe this one), maybe, just maybe the Summer sunshine is here to stay, just for a little while longer. We can only hope. Right?
