Fantasy Shopping - September Wish List

Hey guys, I hope you're well!

Autumn is my favourite time of year, I love everything about it! Especially the fashion, but with my due date only a couple of months away I can't justify splashing out on expensive maternity-only wear. I will be picking up a few bits of pregnancy friendly clothing but for the most part I'm making do with fantasy shopping. I thought I'd share with you an outfit I'd love to be wearing if I wasn't rapidly expanding.

This is the piece that inspired this post, I love it! And it would look super cute with a white t underneath.

A great basic thin jumper for under the dress, perfect to keep warm without being bulky.

These are 200 denier, I rarely buy anything less in the cold winter months.

Easy and comfy, I don't think you can have to many pairs of ankle boots and these are cute. Hopefully they'll still have them when my feet have gone back to normal!

Small but practical, could be worn with so many things. A good investment I think, it's a shame it wouldn't fit many nappies in!

As the weather got colder I would pop on a black leather jacket too, I haven't found one that stands out to me yet this year but I'm sure there are plenty of great ones out there!

Let me know what you think of the outfit and the post! Have a great week and keep an eye out for my SLS free hair care routine coming soon!

Grey Beach Day + Natural FOTD

Hey guys, I hope you all had a great weekend! On Saturday, I joined some friends on a camping trip by the sea, naturally it was rainy and grey but still so much fun! Here are a few snaps of the beach and then I'll get into what I wore on my face!

My face: sorry about the photo, I found it really hard to picture this makeup!

Under eye concealer: Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch. I actually don't like this very much, it seems to drag a little and so blends badly, you also need a lot of product to see any difference, but I was wearing it so I'll pop it in

Face concealer (around nose/chin): Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer. I like to use this on redness, it's not quite the right shade for under my eyes but I'll use it if I'm in a rush as it's super easy

Foundation: BareMinerals Original SPF 15 Foundation. As you can see the summer has left me all freckly! I actually love them so I only used a light layer of base products but they can all be built up a little more if need be

Bronzer: Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder. Just a tad over the cheeks and forehead

Brows: Rimmel Brow This Way. I really like this for my blonde brows, cheap and easy!

Eye primer: Too Faced Shadow Insurance. Not as long lasting as I'd expect for a higher end product, I found the shadows creased slightly and faded but it's better than the shadows on their own

Eyeshadow: Urban Decay Naked Basics. Faint across the lid and Crave along the upper lash line, I wanted to keep it super simple

Mascara: Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara. Nothing special but it does the job!

Lipstick: Revlon Matte Balm Enchanting. Hurruh! I finally found it on the books website! I'm going to go back for 'Complex' as I really enjoyed wearing this but the sea air and the campfire wrecked havoc with my lips leaving them very sore so this has been put to the side for now.

I hope you like this post and have a great week! Love, Robyn x

Beauty Haul!

Hey guys,
My first proper post back is a haul! I didn't get too much but to stop this post getting too long, I'll jump straight in.

Nuxe Reve De Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm £9.50
I have too many lip balms so I had put off buying this for such a long time, but I spotted it in France at a reasonable price and couldn't resist! I've only used it a handful of times but I already love it. I've noticed that my lips look fuller after applying so although it's thick it's great in the day time as well as an over night treatment.

Lush Ultrabland Facial Cleanser 45g £7.25
A rushed repurchase as my last tub was running dangerously low! This has been my go to cleanser for years. It's a nourishing balm cleanser which removes makeup easily without irritating my eczema prone skin, my little sister also used it for a while when she had acne and it worked well for her too. A great little product and cheap compared to a lot of balm cleansers on the market.

Bio Oil 200ml £19.99
I had given up caring about my awful stretch marks over the summer, forgetting that I'm likely to get so many more as the months progress. I'm hoping this combined with the Palmers lotion will improve the old ones while stopping any more from popping up!

Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer £6.99
I've been without a highlighting concealer for quite a while now so I thought I'd try a new one, especially as I'm having trouble sleeping at the moment!

Revlon Matte Balm Enchanting 255 £7.99
I went in looking for Complex and couldn't see it! Then, I found this in the draw and it looked pretty similar but I couldn't see any mention of it on the shelf. Or on the Revlon website for that matter. It's existence is a mystery but a beautiful one! Update: I can now access the Revlon page on and this lipstick is listed! A mystery no more.

Cussons Mum and Me Baby Lotion £2.15
My skin has been super sensitive recently so I picked up a cheap baby lotion to moisturise my body, it smells nice but very strong, I don't think I would put this on a young baby!

Boots Body Polisher £1.99, Foot Polisher £1.59 and Exfoliating Gloves £2.69
Not very exciting but I love getting new scrubby things... especially when they're 3 for 2!

That's pretty much it guys! I also picked up a Mitchum roll on deodorant (which I'm sure I'll mention again if it's great) and some more antenatal vitamin but I didn't think you'd want a whole paragraph about them!

I hope you're all enjoying September! To those of you back at school today or off to uni very soon, good luck! Love, Bobby x

New Laptop Resolutions - I'm back

Hey guys, long time no post!

 I'm really sorry for my absence, I've had a busy summer filled with technical difficulties but now, I'm back! Thank you so much to those of you who still check my blog now and again, it means the world to me.

 I'm currently writing on a brand new laptop, my old one bit the dust back in July due to a corrupt motherboard apparently. I'm not entirely sure how this happened but I'm amazed it lasted as long as it did, so I have decided to treat this one much better. Here are my New Laptop Resolutions:

  • I shall never use my laptop as a plate, or a table for that matter
  • I shall never drink tea over the keyboard
  • I shall never fall asleep cradling my laptop and therefore it shall never fall off the bed
  • I shall actually back up my hard drive, at least once

 Okay, four seems doable... any more and I'm setting myself up for failure! Plus I'm still trying to get to grips with the new keyboard so this post is very frustrating to write.

I have a haul to write up so you can expect more posts from me soon... I promise! 

Love, Bobby x
