Next Nail Polish Review - Rose Gold

As a beauty blogger who loves a good cliche (see my new marble effect desktop), I was beyond excited to see these nail polishes by Next in a rose gold colour. Add in a 3 for 2 deal and I was hooked. (I bought two rose gold glitters and passed one on to a good home!)

Lake Garda Holiday Diary Part 2

In August, I was lucky enough to be taken to Lake Garda for ten day holiday in Sirmione. I absolutely loved it, Italy is one of my favourite countries and Lake Garda was simply stunning.

I blogged the first part of my holiday over at Lake Garda Part 1 which includes some highlights of a trip around the lake and a review of Hotel Olivi.


In this post I'm going to go a little more in depth about an excursion to another beautiful lake that we did while away.

Birthday Wish List

I've made a discovery which has made my (and Mr T's) life a LOT easier. Wishlistr. I've been using the Wishlistr extension for Google Chrome to add all sorts to my birthday list, then last month, emailed the list to Mr T with a couple of hints about mt favourites and relevant sizes. He'll thank me...haha!

You can find my wishlist here My wishlist (Mr T....! This is your SECOND friendly warning) which you can share via email, Facebook or Twitter. You can also choose a template to personalise it. Seriously! It's my latest love!

Which is the best budget Autumn lip? | Tori Tests

Eeeeek! It's that time of year again - Autumn is here! It's my favourite season for so many reasons.
1. Autumn weather never disappoints the same as Summer weather does.
2. I LOVE hats. And scarves. And coats.
3. ALL the birthdays - I've had to buy over 10 birthday cards just for September. Not to mention my birthday in October. Yippee!!!
4. Berry shades galore. On my nails. My clothes. On my lips... Here's my top 5 Autumn lipsticks.

GRWM: Brunch Girl Date

I've done a sort of GRWM post before when I went to Ladies Day at Aintree and it was a popular post so I thought I'd do another! This time a brunch date with some of my besties!

Tori Gets Organised: Dressing Table

I've been watching a lot of organisational videos on YouTube recently and decided to get organised myself, leading to the latest series on my blog - Tori Gets Organised.

The latest area to get organised in my house has been my dressing table.

Pink/Gold glitter ombre nail

My favourite nail colour combo is still the Barry M Nail Gelly in Pink Lemonade combined with Barry M Nail Paint in Gold. I used it in my Spring Nail Art look  and I've used it again here now! Except this time...I've added glitter. Everything's better with glitter, right??

Packing for a long weekend with cabin baggage only

I recently spent a long weekend in Spain, flying with EasyJet and literally only having cabin baggage. We were there for four days in total and were doing a mixture of chilling by the pool, a bit of sightseeing and a day at a reservoir swimming. I needed a lot of different things in other words! And that's before I decided on the toiletries I was taking in that little plastic bag!!

Here are my top tips for packing a cabin bag holiday.

The suitcase

First of all - make sure you maximise the bag you take. A cabin bag sized case is actually bigger than you think. My top tip is to buy a specifically cabin bag sized case and then you're not panicking about it being too big and not losing out either. I went for a Tripp cabin luggage suitcase that fit most airlines size requirements. Mine is extremely old now but you can find all sorts out there.  These are my current favourites!

Tori Gets Organised - Shoes and Bags

A short while ago, I made a promise to myself and to you lovely readers (and to Mr T...) that I would FINALLY get organised. You can see my post Tori Gets Organised: The Promise here.

I wrote the post as much to MAKE myself do it as anything else and guess what, I actually started!!

My shoes and bags used to be in a pile underneath our lift up bed. I could never find the bag I wanted or a matching pair of shoes... but now - drum roll please...!

(Please excuse the photography - how do you make organisation look pretty?! Tips in the comments please!)
