Pills, Apps & Adidas – February Faves

There’s been a few things I’ve been loving in the month of February. Let’s just jump straight in.

Instagram Stories

Late to the game as always (plus I used to be a hardcore snapchat fan) I’ve recently fallen in love with the Instagram stories feature. In fact in case you haven’t noticed, what I tend to do is take the actual pic on Snapchat and then upload it to IG, add the stickers, location, etc.

Recently I haven’t done anything particularly Insta worthy. However the stories feature allows me to regularly update my audience with slightly more ‘real’ snapshots. The stuff I wouldn’t necessarily want permanently on my feed.

Pill Mate

Having recently had an overhaul of my medication regime. I’ve been finding it rather difficult to keep track of what to take and when. Not only that but sometimes I take my tablets only to then forget wether I’ve taken them or not, and then take them again.

I recently bought a handy organiser by the brand pill mate, from Superdrug, for around £13. A whole week of clearly labelled compartments, with easy to access sliding windows and a flip open cover to keep everything sealed and safe.

Money well spent.

Pandora Jewellery

Hey I’m basic. I own way too much pandora Jewellery as it is. Did I own the rose gold bracelet though? No. Well now I do. Plus some beautiful new charms too.It’s gonna sit pretty on my wrist next to the other two bracelets I own. Every charm a memory, occasion or sentiment. I’m not sorry in the slightest.AdidasMy January faves contained a super comfortable Jack Wills hoodie and this month I’m including a super girly and fun Adidas one.Ok, so technically it arrived in March thanks to the snow. I bought it in February though so it still counts right? It’s definitely more of a statement piece. Printed and pretty pastel for spring. It’s also on the thinner side so definitely one for when the weather warms up a little. I haven’t managed to get a decent pic of myself in it yet, sorry you’ll have to make do with a stock image.Pancakes & ValentinesIt’s was a month of food and love, that even myself as a single Pringle managed to find joy in. My Grandad turned out to be the only valentine I needed (also the only person sweet enough to give me a card). Plus who doesn’t love pancake day? Pancakes are awesome. Especially smothered in Nutella and strawberries. Of course the presentation might need work. It tasted amazing though. Weight watchers what? Where? Who?What did you love in the month of love?Let me knowCharlotte xxx

13 Random Personal Questions – Blogtober #14

Blogging in general is hard and Blogtober is like the ultimate blogging challenge. Coming up with interesting content to post everyday is definitely a struggle at times. So today in a totally non original post I’m going to do a tag post. For those who don’t know tags are basically trends of questions / challenges that sweep around the internet.

Here we go.

What do I order at Starbucks?

This varies depending on the weather, my mood and what takes my fancy. If it’s hot outside then frappachinos are my go to. Coffee based not cream. Usually with sugar free caramel syrup. Alternatively I love a good caramal macchiato or white mocha. When the seasonal drinks appear I’m a total basic bitch and love a pumpkin spice latte or Peppermint mocha.

What’s one thing in my closet I couldn’t live without?

Not one thing but a collection. My sneakers / trainers for sure.  Although my Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac handbag is a second.

What’s one thing most people don’t know about me?

How close I am to my family. Good luck trying to keep a secret, it’s near impossible. People always seem surprised that I’m totally happy hanging around with family at the weekend rather than going out and getting drunk.

What’s one thing you’d love to do before you die?

I’m going to be totally boring and say have children and then become one of those mums who’s crazy into arts and crafts and over decorating at the holidays. I know lots of people will have probably answers this question with travel, but honestly I’m not that bothered. Home is where the heart is.

A food you can’t live without?

Not a food but a drink. I couldn’t go on without a cup of tea. I’m a British stereotype in that sense. #sorrynotsorry

What’s your favourite quote?

“Life’s not a competition, we’re all in a different race” It’s so easy to compare yourself to the person next to you, it’s easy to forget we all have different starting points and obstacles in the way.

What do you like and dislike about the blogging / YouTube community?

I hate how competitive it is and how as blogs/vlogs have become more popular, and more of a money earner, people basically become walking adverts. 

I love how it connects people. I find it so hard to talk to people in ‘real life’ so having the Internet as an outlet and way of meeting others, is just amazing.

Number one song on my iPhone right now?

My Spotify is a real mix. Go check out a whole post I did on it here. I’m loving a lot of noughties tunes right now. Old Skool as they say.



How would I describe my style?

More pajamas than clothes. I’m not getting dressed unless I really have to. Comfort is my main priority.

Favourite Number?

7 !! Haha I have no idea why

Name two hobbies you have?

Does sleep count ? Um blogging / livestreaming? I have no idea what to write. Oh god is this why I’m still single?

Name two things you can’t stand?

Just two? Are you sure? I mean I have a whole post if you’re interested (here). I dunno I’m just stupidly petty and have such a short fuse at the minute.

Do you have a guilty pleasure?

The whole Teen Mom Franchise. I’m so over it yet can’t stop watching. 

So there you have it. If you fancy answering the same questions. Why not tag me so I can see.

Hope you enjoyed

Footwear Friday – Week 1

So in my time off, I had a good think about the type of content I wanted to include going forward. Right from the get go I was pretty adamant I wanted to include some sort of footwear segment. Trainers / Sneakers, whatever you wish to call them, are a true passion of mine. Whilst I’ve only been collecting since late 2016. I feel I’ve built up quite the selection already.

So without further a due I present to you week 1 of ‘Footwear Friday’.

Puma by Rihanna Fenty Bow Sneakers in Sweet Lavender


Absolutely stunning right? Since RiRi hooked up with Puma they’ve constantly been producing knock out (and sell out) products. There’s no denying the popularity of Puma as a brand overall, has sky rocketed.

Part of Rihanna’s 2017 and second collab with them. Fenty fans knew to expect the Creepers and the Slides. These beauties however, are something a little different….actual sneakers.

Satin and bows feature heavily throughout the whole collection. Clothing, bags, hats. The slides, that may feature in a different ‘Footwear Friday’ are one of the most affordable and wearable items the bow is the main focal point of. 

Back to these though… A true statement piece I’m truly glad to have these in my collection. A true head turner and an almost certain way to grab those Instagram likes. Check out my Instagram here 

Their only downfall?? They’re so damn impractical. I live in Cornwall and there’s absolutely NO WAY these will survive the sandy beaches and muddy countryside. I’m not even going to try them. Satin and the rain don’t particularly go either unfortunately..Living in the U.K. we aren’t often blessed with sunny days.

So as beautiful as these are they’ll be staying in their box for now. Thankfully Fenty always pack their products amazingly and also include a dust bag.

I don’t regret buying them at all. They just aren’t an everyday type of shoe, at least not where I live.

Thoughts? Let me know 🙂
