Ethic and Style from Esty

Back in January I planned a birthday gift for my friend who lives in Japan, so I went on a hunt and discovered this cute little shop on Esty that sells handmade phone cases, Kindle cases, ipad cases and Macbook Pro cases.

Thursdays OOTD

I believe I have had quite a productive day today. I set out to film 3 YouTube videos, take some photographs for my blog and take photographs of my OOTD - which really comes under the umberella of taking photographs for my blog. Hopefully I will edit the videos tomorrow and have them up by the weekend. 

 Anyway, here is my OOTD for today and yes it rained again. What is up with the weather? It needs to sort itself out as I hate the rain. Roll on the summer with sandals, dresses and sunglasses.

My favourite Hand Creams, Body Butters, Moisturisers and Face Creams.

I have decided to make a post all about moisturisers seen as they are my favourite beauty product to use as the London water dries my skin out a fair bit. So finding the best moisturiser is key. 
I also get dry hands as well so I will include hand creams in this post as it could be useful to you guys. 

My parents came to visit me in London from Wales, sometime last year and my mum had chapped hands and paid £10 for this citrus hand softner from Neal's Yard.

I have found the Company High Street Edit

YES! I have found the Company High Street Edit again. I popped into W H Smith on my way home this evening and went in to pick up another magazine and saw this on the shelf and I abandoned the other magazine I intended to buy and ran to the till with the Company High Street Edit. I don't think the male cashier really  understood. 

Here is what is contained in the magazine, go go buy it. Why wouldn't you want to read about 10 hot watches, earrings, hats and sunglasses. These features are neat and handy to take a snap of for when you are out shopping next.

30 Day snap

Now as a regular reader of Sprinkle of Glitter, which btw, I cannot get enough of. I love reading her blog. She writes so eloquently and to the point, I wish I had her writing style. I also love watching her main YouTube Channel and her Sprinkle of Chatter Channel.

Anyway, the point of mentioning Louise, that's Sprinkle of Glitter, is that for the month of June she has instigated 30 day snap, which in a nut shell is take 1 photo a day and upload it to your blog, twitter, facebook, instagram or other online area you like to upload to. Here is her original post if you don't understand what I am going on about.

With Louise's permission I have uploaded this image

What's in my handbag - competition

I was flicking through my daily Bloglovin email and saw this post, what's in my handbag, by Marmalade. Where she blogs about what is in her handbag and the reason why she did it, a competition of course! and for the rest of us nosey people to have a look what's in her bag. 

So lets get started folks and have a look what I lug around each day. This may highlight why I have a bad back.

My lovely Fiorelli bag I picked up in a Dorothy Perkins closing down sale for £10 - was originally £80 - This bag is big enough to fit the kitchen sink in. It has an across the body strap but I always carry it on my shoulder.

Tuesdays OOTD

So my aim is to blog every day for the month of June. I have sat for a while trying to think of a witty title or tag line to call it something cool, but nothing has come to mind and it escapes me. What wanted to say was these little OOTD posts are my test for trying to blog everyday. So far I have failed, but every other day is good enough right? 

I have also just discovered the labels section so I will be adding those to my posts from now on. 

Anyway, lets get on with what you came to see...TUESDAYS OOTD!

£5 well spent

On Friday I was browsing through my Bloglovin feed, at the blogs I follow, and saw that Michelle from Beauty and the Blog was advertising - £5 advertising space on her blog for other blogs, no matter how big or small. So I have given it a whirl. Here is the advert I saw on her blog and now my blog is being advertised to the right, can you see?

Saturday's OOTD

My second attempt at this feature - 

I having stayed in all day today and thought I would try my Primark Maxi skirt. I like wearing maxi skirts, but I'm not sure whether it suits my shape.

My first attempt at OOTD

I have seen OOTD on some other blogs and I thought I would give this feature a go myself. 

I recently bought these trousers from Primark for £9, when purchasing them I wasn't sure how to style them, but as I loved the pattern I thought I would push the boat out and get them as they are not normally an item I would wear. What do you think, hit or miss? I thought they would be good for holiday as they are a thin material and are stylish.

Nail Board Arrival

 A few weeks ago I wrote on my Twitter about how my nail board had arrived in the post. This was a very exciting day as I had ordered it back in April and had to wait a good month before it arrived as it came from abroad. The only thing I hate about internet shopping is the long wait before the item arrives.

This is the shop I bought it from on Amazon 

I bought this plate after going to the Ideal Home show and saw something similar, just with different designs and was £60. I thought £60 was a tad expensive and I searched google, whilst still at the Ideal Home show. I thought things were mean to be cheap at the Ideal Home Show, but it turns out they are not. 

It came wrapped in bubble wrap and the plate hat this blue film over it.

My London

Having wandered around London for a few days I thought I would share some things I have seen, as I think it would be a shame not to show you London's beauties.

I would like to take more pictures of interesting items, but as I spend most of my time either in work or at home I don't really get to take many interesting pictures. However, I have seen a few things which I will share below:

ASOS sunglasses review

If you are a regular follower of my blog you will know that I accidentally scratched my favourite sunglasses around Christmas time 2013. I love to wear sunglasses all year round especially when I am driving as there is nothing worse than driving with squinty eyes.

Primark shopping trip

At lunch I popped down to Primark with a colleague. It was a nice change to go shopping with someone else that isn't my boyfriend. My friend picked up 3 tops - one was reduced to £2, so she was pleased. She also got some 3/4 length jeans. Then to what I picked up -

These lovely shoes - £10

Glossy Box Birthday

I am disappointed to find out that Glossy Box were handing out Glossy Boxes in Covent Garden last week on the 8th to celebrate Glossy Box 2nd birthday. Great for the people who were able to attend, but I am sad that I missed it. From what I read on other people's blogs they were handing out small Glossy Boxes and full size Glossy Boxes intermittently throughout the day.

My Nail Polish Collection

Photographing my nail polishes I have noticed that my brother has bought me more than half of them. I like the ones he's chosen. He has good taste...you'll see what I mean below.

Barry M. I discovered Barry M in 2007 at the Clothes Show Live Birmingham. I didn't know what it was but it was the busiest stand in the building. I picked up 2 green shades of eye shadow and that was it. I used to wear them all the time and then decided I looked like a clown and I stopped wearing them. Anyway, my nail polish collection. Barry M I like these polishes as they are opaque and they have a large range of colours. However, they only seem to last a day or 2 for me. Maybe its the job that I do, but I just wish they lasted longer.

Up, up, up and away!

A few weeks back, I still haven't got the hang of blogging on the day or the day after, so please bare with me. So my friend came to London for a dental conference, she's a dentist, and I met up with her. 

On Friday night we went for pizza at this lovely restaurant in Soho, they had a clay oven and offered samples of pizza whilst you waited in the queue. Like that wasn't enough to tell me this was the right place to eat, they also gave you drinks as well.

Buying on eBay

This was a separate page on my blog, but I have chosen for a cleaner look and have removed the page and placed the post here. 

I seem to have a love hate relationship with eBay. I enjoy selling things on there and buying, however, I do get disappointed when items arrive and they are not as I imagined. That is not saying that the description is incorrect or wrong, just that I guess I expected more.

Fragrance Oil review

I recently bought some bubble bath and fragrance oil for my oil burner from Marks and Spencer. I purchased them on a whim, whilst my boyfriend was in the queue, from the queue barrier. The Marks and Spencer we went to has a normal Marks and Spencer on the ground floor and a Marks and Spencer  Outlet on the first floor, this was where I bought my items. 

1. Rose fragrance oil - £1.50

Turn that frown around

So from my earlier disappointment of the blogger template, that I was using, not working. I have spent the evening searching for another blogger template I could use. Last time I was on the free blogger templates page I examined every possible design and only found one I liked, which was my memories. But I guess this template breaking was a blessing in disguise as I have now found an even better, stylish, more grown up background for my blog. I did find that most of the templates on Btemplates were either dated or childish, hardly the stylish look I was after.

Battersea Carboot Sunday 28th April 2013

Finally made it to Battersea boot after two weeks of waiting. I had anticipated in going to Battersea boot 2 Sundays ago when I went to Capital Carboot, but I spent so much time there I was too late to go to Battersea, but this Sunday I made it.

On my way there I stopped off at Tescos to get myself some breakfast/lunch in the form of a meal deal. I ate this whilst in the queue. I arrived at 1pm and was practically at the front of the queue. Depending on what time you arrive, the price is dictated on the wall. I cannot remember the price times, but they can be found on the Battersea Boot website. I know that if you go in after 1:30pm you only pay 50p, which is what I did.
