Friday Feeling: Album of the Week

rljlowe | Friday Feeling: Album of the Week

I've know, I've been a bit absent from the blog this week. Now it's starting to get darker earlier on in the evenings, taking blog pictures has become a bit of a nightmare! Figuring out when to take pictures is next on my list... But I'm back with my album of this week!

Friday Feeling: Album of the Week

rljlowe | Friday Feeling: Album of the Week - Jack Garratt

I've been thinking about doing a weekly "feature" on the blog for a while now but I wasn't really sure how to go about it or if it would work on rljlowe. The other day I decided I need to stop worrying and just do it, give it a try. So here we are. My car doesn't have an aux cable or the radio, so I rely on CDs for my entertainment on the drive to work and it's helped me discover some new music and also re-discover some old favourites...

Every now and again I love to have a nice, calming pamper evening and Lush is definitely my company of choice when it comes to pampering...

Weekend Wash Bag Essentials

rljlowe | Weekend Wash Bag Essentials
With living an hour away from Rob and driving to his house almost every weekend, I like to think that I've got my weekend essentials down to a T. When I first started packing for a short weekend away, I would always forget things or pack the unnecessary so I thought I would try and save you from the same mistakes...

Sleek Matte Me Lipstick Review & Favourites

rljlowe | Sleek Matte Me Lipstick Review & Favourites

The matte, liquid lipstick hype seems to have died down a little bit now. Things got crazy when Kylie Jenner released her own line (to be honest, I would love to try them but I just can't afford it!) and I think a lot of brands realised how popular these lipsticks would be. When trying to find a cheaper alternative to the Kylie lip kits, I came across the Sleek Matte Me lipsticks and decided to pick a few up to try...

The Best Drugstore Red Lipsticks

rljlowe | Best Drugstore Red Lipsticks
Whenever I think about makeup in summer, I always think about a bold lip. I tend to sway towards a bright orange or red but I think vampy lips look so nice when you've got a bit of a tan, hence the cheeky purple lipstick making its way in...

What to Take to University - 2016 Checklist

rljlowe | What to Take to University - 2016 Checklist

It's coming to that point in the year where University offers are coming through, everyone's choosing where to study and trying to get everything they need for halls. I remember scouring through various different websites and blogs trying to find out exactly what I should take with me but I eventually ended up having to mostly guess. So I decided to put together a list of the things I took to Uni with me.

My Favourite Nude Lipsticks Under £10

rljlowe | My Favourite Nude Lipsticks Under £10
When I'm wearing lipstick I usually end up smudging it or forget to reapply to keep the colour fresh, so nude lips are an easy wear for me. Whenever I'm makeup shopping, I'm always drawn to the nudes and pale pinks so I thought I'd share with you some of my favourites for under £10.

Back to School Essentials

rljlowe | Back to School Essentials

It's that time of the year again, schools and colleges are starting back up and every stationery shop in the world is reminding you of that. I used to love going stationery shopping for school and I'm actually quite sad that I don't have a reason to do it anymore. Nevertheless, I've written about what I think are the essentials for going back to school.

September Goals

rljlowe | September Goals
I seriously can't believe how quickly the year is going! September usually means getting ready for school, college, university or graduation for me, so it's really strange that nothing academic is happening this year. Rob's birthday is in September though and I love thinking up ideas to celebrate with him and how to spoil him...
