My Favourite Binge Worthy TV Shows ♥

Friday, 3 November 2017


 ♥ So, it's been a while. As most of you guys know it's been a little crazy, at all things Sharna HQ of late, with the house move, renovating, etc, etc and much to my disappointment I haven't just been binge watching Netflix during my absence. Nope. Not at all. No seriously, I've been really busy, but I'm back today sharing my all time favourite binge worthy TV shows with you all, as I know you all love a good binge watch, just as much as I do! These shows will have you snuggled up in your duvet, in bed, this Winter, accompanied by your favourite share size bag of chocolate, with a hot chocolate topped with whipped cream and marshmallows in hand, not leaving the house for days, they're that good. I purchased a new TV recently for the new house, because I thought, why not, treat yo'self and all that, I'm not usually into gadgets or anything, but I've found myself noticing that the type of TV you watch your fave shows on, definitely makes a difference to your experience. I bought a Panasonic TV as they never do me wrong, I've been purchasing from their brand for years and will continue to do so. The next TV from them, that's on my wishlist has to be the Oled 4k TV Panasonic, it's just TV goals and would totally add to your viewing experience with professional picture performance, you're sure to get the most from your Netflix binge.

I decided to feature shows that I'm currently binging, as well as shows that have a special place in my heart, that I've binge watched previously. These are shows that will interest and suit all likes/interests/preferences. I have something for you girly, girls who love a Rom Com/Chick Flick, as well as those of you that love a good laugh after a long days work with shows that don't take themselves too seriously, to you Murder Documentary loving nerds (like myself), I hope there is something for everyone.

 In no particular order, prepare to binge...

 ♥ 1. Breaking Bad - Crime Drama

10 Things I Love About Autumn ♥

Sunday, 22 October 2017

OHMYGAWD. It's AUTUMN!!! My most favourite time of year! (bar Christmas, of course) From October through to December, I'm just so happy, these months really do bring out the happiest and most content, excited Sharna, as there's always so many exciting things going on, and despite how much I prefer the sunshine, compared to colder weather, theres something so lovely about crisp, Autumn mornings, and the cosy dark, evenings, before it starts to get way too cold during the Winter months. I just get so excited about this time of year, and I cannot wait to make the most of it this year, by appreciating all of my favourite Autumnal things! :) Today I thought I'd share 10 things that I love about Autumn, with you all, because despite it being the biggest blogger cliche, I just thought why not? Everyone loves a bit of Autumn in their lives! ♥

 ♥ 1. Lighting all the candles-  there's just something so Autumnal and cosy about lighting candles, and settling in for a relaxing, cosy night full of Autumnal scents. 
 ♥ 2. Going for crips, autumn walks - one of my favourite things to do is to wrap up all lovely and cosy, and step out into the fresh, crisp Autumn breeze, and going for a stroll in the crisp leaves, before the weather gets ridiculously cold. It's so relaxing and I just love seeing the change in season!

 ♥ 3. Transitioning all of my homeware, and making everything look autumnal: cushions, duvet covers, accessories etc - this is another one of my favourite things to do in Autumn. I really love changing up my homeware, so that it is that little bit more Autumnal. Gone are the bright Summery shades, and in come more moody, Autumnal, berries, and neutrals! 
 ♥ 4. Reading - you all know how much of a bookworm I am. There's nothing I love more than getting lost into a good book, so of course any old excuse I have to sit down, chill and read, I grab with both hands. Autumn is the perfect excuse to wrap up all lovely and cosy and get lost into a good book! With candles lit and a hot chocolate in hand of course. 
 ♥ 5. Cosy evenings, with your favourite, comfy, fluffy blankets - Autumn is the perfect excuse to dig out your favourite most fluffy, cosy blankets and to just relax. These types of evenings are my favourite. 
 ♥ 6. Buying & Wearing Autumn clothing - Any old excuse for a touch of retail therapy? I love the transition from Summer to Autumn and stocking up on cosy jumpers, and buying my new A/W coat is just the best. I love putting together Autumn outfits and searching Pinterest for A/W clothing inspiration. 
 ♥ 7.  Sipping on all the hot chocolates - Of course?! With marshmallows, whipped cream and chocolate shavings!!! 
 ♥ 8. Getting to wear cute matching hats, scarves and gloves - I mean is there anything better? My favourite place to shop for cute Autumn/Winter hats, scarves and gloves has to be Accessorize. Although it's slightly on the pricey side, they do the loveliest quality pieces, that are so unique! 
 ♥ 9. Halloween & Bonfire Night - I mean who doesn't love Halloween and Bonfire Night?! 
 ♥ 10. Getting Autumn nail shades - as you know one of my favourite treats, is to get my nails done in the salon every month, and I really love to celebrate all things Autumn by going for really neutral, nude shades to all things Berry and Dark. Gone are all things bright and Summery! 


I hope you all feel super cosy, and Autumnal right now. I know I do :) Bring on the next few months. I cannot wait!

Have a lovely day!

Hello October. October Goals. ♥

Sunday, 8 October 2017


Oh my goodness. I feel like I've been waiting for Autumn, forever, and it's finally here! For me, as soon as it hits October, it's officially Autumn. I cannot believe it's October already, it honestly feels like it was January like 2 weeks ago. This year is going so quickly. I find myself saying that so much as I get older, and I hate how fast the years are flying by. Life is SO short, which is why I've been trying to make the most of every single day, setting myself small challenges and really living life meaningfully. Last month, at the start of September, I really loved setting myself 5 goals for the month, to work on. I must say they were actually rather successful, albeit I missed a few work outs here and there just because of the craziness of the new house, and life getting in the way, but I tried my best, and I read SO many amazing books, which was another one of my goals! I also blogged throughout the whole of September, despite the craziness of buying a new home, the stress of work etc, which I'm rather proud of myself for, as it did get a little crazy, but I didn't just give up. I thought I'd write an Autumn inspired list of goals for October. Eeeek it's Autumn guys, from here on out it's literally the BEST time of year! ♥♥♥


♥ 1. Continue to read, every, single day - Over the past month I've absolutely LOVED spending some time out of my day, even if it's just a short time, reading! It's sort of like my escape, into a different world, and I love getting lost into a good book! I've really enjoyed reading Nicholas Sparks - See Me, which was a really beautiful novel. I managed to read that in just 2 days, because it was that good. Nicholas Sparks has always been one of my favourite authors. I'm currently reading Two by Two by him also, and I'm really enjoying that at the moment. I also enjoyed reading Charlotte Crosby's new autobiography, Brand New Me, yep, I'm a Geordie Shore fan, don't judge me, it's awful trashy TV, but I can't help but watch it. If you're a fan I totally recommend her new autobiography! Anyway, I really want to keep up with the tons of reading that I've been doing, even as things start to get a bit crazy as we move into the new house! I adore reading, and there's something so cosy about it, especially during the Autumn months. If you have any book recommendations, do leave them in the comments for me. It would be much appreciated :)


♥ 2. Enjoy and make the most of all the Autumn Cosininess: hot chocolates, cosy nights in, lighting all the candles - ahh how could I not include this as one of my goals? This is the craziest time of year, especially for work, and often as much as I adore this time of year, because it's the best, I forget to enjoy the little things. Like having a tasty hot chocolate, and allowing myself 5 minutes peace, lighting all of my Autumnal Candles, enjoying cosy nights in rather than working myself to death. I really want to go on more crisp, autumn walks, and enjoy all of the classic autumn traditions, that I adore, but struggle to make the time for!


♥ 3. Continue to work out, 3-4 times a week - I did slack a teeny bit when it came to working out last month, because things did get a little bit crazy. But I really want to try and stick to my target of working out 3-4 times a week, this month. I really do love working out, despite it being hard work, I always feel so amazing once I've completed a work out, and it really is a release for me, and sort of a stress coping mechanism. Even as the mornings get colder, and darker I must remind myself to drag myself out of bed, and get moving because it really is worth it! :)

♥ 4. Move into our new home - YES!!! October will be the month that we finally get to move into our new, dream home! It feels like we've been waiting absolutely AGES to move in, and I'm really excited for the next chapter in our lives. We still haven't finished all of the renovating as there is still so much to do, but we have to move out of our current property, as our buyer has been really lovely to us, and let us stay for as long as we'd like, plus the new house is liveable, despite the renovations, so we're ready to take the next step! It's really exciting but also really nerve-wracking. This is just an October goal in itself, to move into the new house, with as little stress as possible and make the most of every second, making memories we won't ever forget. I'm beyond excited! :)


♥ 5. Make time for myself, despite all of the craziness going on - So it's going to be yet another crazy month in my life, but I am really going to try and make a conscious effort, to not let things get to me, and stress me out too much. Whether it be work, or the new house, I'm just going to take each day as it comes and indulge in lots of self care, to keep myself grounded. I'm one of those people that worries about so much, so self care and taking time out for myself is really important for me. I want to schedule it in, make time for me, doing all the things I love, catching up with friends, blogging, spending time with family, sipping on hot chocolate and watching Jane the Virgin, reading, having lots of bubble baths! I think it's really important to make time for ourselves, so I'm going to follow my own advice this month, and do just that! :)


I hope you all have an amazing October! The best really is yet to come, and this is the most wonderful time of year. I love October through to December, it's full of all sorts of magic and fun! 

What are your goals for October? 
What is your favourite season?
What do you love the most about Autumn?

Have a lovely day!

Current Haircare Favourites. ♥

Sunday, 1 October 2017

Hiya, you lovely lot! Well, if you've been reading my blog for quite some time, you'll know that I'm a lady that is quite obsessed with all things Haircare. I've been on the biggest haircare journey, being every hair colour you can possibly imagine, letting my poor locks go through the stress of going from blonde, to brunette, to blonde to brunette, to red, to blonde, just one more time. Before finally settling on blonde, as I feel like it's the only colour that's actually suited me after all these years. Thrown into the mix is all the extra heat damage from the excessive straightening of my hair during my teenage years. Anywho, as you can probably imagine my hair has been left fairly damaged after everything I'd put it through, and over a year ago, I decided enough was enough. I needed to invest in some good haircare products and at least try to restore some health and love back into my poor locks. Fast forward to now, I can say it's finally worked and my blonde hair is looking a lot less dry and frazzled. As a beauty blogger, I'm forever trying new products, and never stick to the same old thing on my hair, so today I thought I'd share a few of the haircare products that have made a difference to my hair in the last few months, and ones that I've really enjoyed using! I hope you find something you love too! ♥

♥ Olaplex No3 Take Home Treatment - £32 - I would only recommend buying this from a salon, as there are a lot of fake options online that aren't safe. So pop into your local salon and see if they're a stockist. 

If you haven't heard of Olaplex before, where have you been hiding for the past year?! It's been the talks of the haircare/beauty world with major stars including Kim Kardashian using Olaplex to keep her hair in good condition as she went from dark brunette to bleach blonde in one sitting. Olaplex aims to repair and reconnect the bonds that are damaged through hair colouring. It promises stronger, healthier hair, with longer lasting colour and if you're going blonde, or maintaining bleached, or blonde hair, then this is a must in your haircare routine. My hair stylist won't even touch my hair without applying Olaplex, as she says the damage just isn't worth it. 

Olaplex No3 is the take home treatment that can be used at home. To get the full Olaplex experience you must get your hair dyed in the salon, where your stylist will mix Olaplex No1 into your hair dye, and apply it to your hair, this will then be washed away as you wash the dye away, and the second Olaplex treatment, you got it right, Olaplex No2, will be applied after rinsing. The No1 and No2 Olaplex Treatments are for professional use only, but the No3 treatment, which is an absolute life saver, can be used at home! 

You use the treatment by rinsing your hair first, and then you apply a generous amount of the Olaplex No3 treatment from roots to ends, combing through with a wide toothed comb to ensure even coverage. You can then leave the product on from anywhere between 10 minutes or overnight. Obviously the longer you leave the product on, the more time it has to work wonders on your hair. I like to try and sleep in the treatment where I can and then rinse away in the morning, followed by shampoo and conditioning my hair, as this is where I see the real results.

And wow, are the results amazing!! After using it only once, the results are immediate. Over time I've also noticed a dramatic difference in how my hair looks and feels since using Olaplex No3. My hair is much softer, shinier, hydrated, and there is much less breakage than before I was using Olaplex No3. My hair is so much stronger! I just cannot get enough of using it and I'm not sure how my hair ever lived without it, well actually I do...it lived a pretty lifeless, dry and damaged life. If you're blonde or not, I'd recommend giving this treatment a go, although it's pricey for the small bottle, the results really are amazing, and a little goes a long way! I find the bottle lasts me around 2 months, when applied weekly.  

♥ Lee Stafford Hair Growth Shampoo, Conditioner and Deep Conditioning Treatment (basically the entire range!) 
♥ Shampoo - £7.49 - available here
♥  Conditioner - £7.49 - available here
♥  Deep Conditioning Treatment Mask - £8.49 - available here 

I've been the biggest Lee Stafford haircare fan for as long as I can remember. There is just something so amazing about the scent of the products, and the packaging, that has me falling in love. I've always been a big fan of his protein based, Hair Growth range, and have recently fallen back in love with it again. Don't you just love when you rediscover products that you once loved, and the love affair starts all over again? I've been using the Hair Growth Shampoo and Conditioner alongside the Hair Growth Mask Treatment, every other wash, and I'm really impressed with the results. Every time I use these products together my hair just feels SO lovely: thoroughly cleansed, hydrated, silky soft, light, nourished and much stronger, even with a bit of added, extra volume. I mean what's not to love?! Overtime I can definitely say that the hair growth range from Lee Stafford has contributed to the growth of my hair, as it gets it in the perfect condition for maximum hair growth and I've always had good results over the years when using this range. If you're wanting to improve the condition of your hair and gain hair growth, I'd recommend the entire Hair Growth collection, it's amazing and the pinkness makes your bathroom look extra pretty too! 

♥ Kind Natured Colour Care Coconut & Shea 
♥  Shampoo* - £4.99 - available here
♥  Conditioner* - £4.99 - available here 

Another shampoo and conditioner combo that I've been loving recently is from a gorgeous brand called Kind Natured, which can be found in Boots! The packaging is so pretty, and best of all, Kind Natured is a brand that is 97% natural, with their products being free from Parabens, Sulphates, Silicones and Petrochemicals. They're also vegan and vegetarian friendly, and they don't test on animals. ♥♥♥ so they're definitely a brand worth checking out. You can find their website, and the full range of their amazing products here. Anywho, back to this amazing shampoo and conditioner which is perfect for coloured hair, they boast of colour enhancing Rooibos, with nourishing botanicals to keep coloured hair vibrant and protected.  

The coconut ingredients within the shampoo and conditioner offer amazing nourishment, hydration and moisture for your locks, as well as preventing fading of colour. And of course, the Shea within the products locks in moisture and helps to replenish hair damaged by colour, restoring health and vitality back into your hair. It's an almighty combo, and they work so well on my hair leaving it feeling thoroughly cleansed, vibrant, hydrated and super soft. Oh and the scent of the products is out of this world, almost good enough to eat! If you have coloured hair, these are well worth a try, and are often on 3 for 2 offer in Boots! 

Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette Review. ♥

Sunday, 24 September 2017

♥ Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette* - £39 - available here 

I'm SO excited to share todays review with you all, I've been desperate to rave about this eyeshadow palette for WEEKS and today is finally the day where I'm going to share my thoughts on it and explain why I'm pretty much obsessed. I've always been a huge fan of Too Faced make up, and their eyeshadow palettes forever have me falling in love. It was no exception when I tried the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons palette around a month ago. If you love a good, old, nude eyeshadow palette that has a slight pop of girly, colour, this is the palette for you! I've been wearing it pretty much every day, both for work, casual and evening occasions, as the palette is so versatile and the shade range means you can alter your look depending on the occasion really easily! So enough of the rambling, here are my thoughts on the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons palette, and why you all need it in your lives... ♥♥♥

♥ Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette* - £39 - available here

♥ Packaging 
Ok so lets discuss the packaging, I mean, if this isn't packaging goals I don't know what is? It's SO beautiful, incredibly, pink and girly, and basically my dream packaging with the pastel, baby pink casing, heart shaped eyeshadows and promising chocolate scent. As soon as I spotted the packaging, I was in love. It's very ME. I think it's my favourite make up product packaging - ever, and definitely my favourite Too Faced Palette. And that's saying something! It's just so pretty to have displayed, sitting on your dressing table and it's very Instagrammable. If you're anything like me and swoon over anything pink and girly - you'll be obsessed with this palette's packaging. It's beautiful and reminds me of something Barbie would opt for, for some reason. The packaging is also very durable, and has a metal tinned, outer shell, making it incredibly fool proof, and perfect for travelling. There is also a really handy mirror inside the palette, once it's opened up, which makes it perfect for applying the eyeshadows on the go.

♥ Scent
So once you open to the palette itself, almost immediately you're welcomed by the sweetest, most delicious scent of chocolate - yep, that's right, the eyeshadows themselves are actually chocolate scented. Too Faced really went to town with this beauty! I mean if the actual shades themselves weren't already amazing enough, they had to make them smell like chocolate too?! On many occasions when using the handy, compact mirror (which FYI is really nicely sized, and is fairly large for an eyeshadow palette compact mirror) I find myself just sniffing the eyeshadows themselves. They're almost good enough to eat, and smell so yummy! I mean who doesn't want chocolate scented eyelids?


8 Less Hyped, High Street Make Up Favourites ♥

Wednesday, 20 September 2017

Who doesn't love a bargain? I know I certainly do! I'm forever on the hunt for affordable make up, that ticks all of the boxes of high end products, but at a fraction of the price! Today I thought I'd share some of my favourite bits of make up with you all, but best of all these beauties are all highly affordable and can all be found in Highstreet stores including Boots, Superdrug and Wilkos! I thought I'd include products, that despite the fact they're amazing, they're not as hyped up as your typical Collection Lasting Perfection Concealers and are sort of like little hidden beauties in the High Street make up world. Hope you find something you love! ♥♥♥

♥ Essence Volume Stylist Curl & Hold 18 Hour Mascara* - £3 - available here 

So first up, is an amazing mascara from a brand I've become obsessed with over the past 6 months, Essence products can be found in Wilkos. If you haven't tried their products before, I recommend them 1000000%. They're such amazing quality products, yet they're so affordable, with most of their products being under £4, how insane?!  You see a full range of their products on the Wilkos website here. I couldn't write this post today without discussing the Essence Volume Stylist Curl and Hold Mascara which is just £3.... yep go out and buy 10 guys, it's only £3!!! You all need this in your make up bags. It boasts of incredible lash curl, and up to 18 hours of lasting volume. The wand is a fully loaded paddle brush, with long bristles on one side, and shorter ones on the opposite side.

 It keeps my lashes separated, and coats the lashes evenly, with no fuss, or problems and gives them that all important curl I'm constantly craving from a mascara!  The formula is stunning, it boasts of of micro styling waxes that give extra hold, volume and curl. The texture of the mascara is creamy and wet and it coats the lashes perfectly giving you a dark, black, bold finish that really does last all, day long! SO GOOD! It's a buildable mascara that you can keep applying to reach your desired finish,

 I find one to two coats of this enough to give me the full effect, and I'd only recommend applying two coats of this onto your lashes, before it starts to look a little clumpy for my own personal liking. This mascara doesn't start to come off throughout the day, it says in place really nicely, and doesn't flake. It's survived the long 12 hour shifts at work, which is witchcraft, as even some high end mascaras can't do that for me. I'm so impressed with it, and for just £3, I think it's a mascara we all need in our lives. 

♥ Revlon Photo Ready Insta-Fix Highlighting Stick 'Gold Light'* -£9.99 - available here 

A highlighter I've become obsessed with recently, and definitely one I'd recommend you all giving a go for yourself, is the Revlon Photo Ready Insta-Fix Highlighting Stick in 'Gold Light'.  It leaves me with such a lovely, natural, luminous glow that I simply cannot get enough of! The Golden shade gives you a gorgeous shimmer that's not too overpowering, just a lovely, healthy glow that makes you look amazing and feel confident! 

It's really simple and easy to apply to your skin. I tend to apply it to my forehead, cheekbones, bridge of nose, chin, underneath my eyebrows and anywhere my skin would naturally attract a bit of a glow! The stick function makes application easy and precise, especially for on the go top ups! Lasting power is fantastic, the glow lasts for most of the day, and will last my 9-5, with just one top up at lunch time - which is amazing right?!

Pigmentation is fantastic, as you can see from the swatch above, where I only swatched one coat. I tend to use just one coat during the day for a more natural, subtle glow but if I'm on a night out, or it's a special occasion I will build the product up for an even more glowy, luminous, strobed finish. The stick will last a fair while too, as a little goes a long way! Revlon also do another variation of this highlighting stick in the shade 'Champagne' - which I really want to get my hands on! For the price, amazing pigmentation, lasting power, finish and quality, you simply cannot go wrong! 

10 Ways to Boost Your Mood Today. ♥

Sunday, 17 September 2017

We've all been there, when no matter we try and do, or what anybody else does to try and help, we're in the worst mood ever, something sets you off and it sets the tone for the rest of the day. Those days are the worst. Or if you've had a really bad day at work, and you're just taking it on yourself and those around you. It sucks right? Often I find it's really hard to snap out of moods, and it's so easy to feel sorry for yourself and hate everything and everyone. Recently if I've been feeling like this, there are 10 things, based upon self care, and looking after myself, that will always make me feel better. In no particular order, here are 10 Mood Boosters that are sure to snap you out of that bad mood, in no time! Often it's just the little things that truly make a big difference to how you feel. ♥


Wear your favourite make up - I don't know what it is about wearing my favourite make up, whether it be a lip product, my all time favourite eyeshadow palette (as shown above!) or, just an amazing mascara that really makes my eyes POP. I actually love applying make up, you wouldn't have ever thought it would you? And it instantly boosts my mood whenever I use my favourite products because I feel more confident, and I just adore using my faves! I know your mood shouldn't be affected based upon your apperance and how you look, but let's be honest, are you gonna feel amazing and is your mood going to be increased if you look like rubbish? If I'm in a bad mood, a slick of a good, bright lipstick often makes me feel that little bit cheerier. Honestly it does work, try it. 


♥  Pamper yourself - Another instant mood boost for me, when I'm feeling down or I've had a really long, tough day at work, is to come home and have a good old pamper session. By this I mean quite literally turning my bathroom into a relaxing spa, candles lit, bubble bath, all of my favourite pampering products, a good book/tv show playing on my iPad and all of my favourite snacks on hand. Just thinking about this makes me happy! :) It's all about self care, slowing down and making time for yourself, and making myself relaxed, and pampering myself always does the trick. 


♥  Eat your favourite food - Please don't binge eat, that's not what I'm saying here. But everything in moderation is of course fine. Don't starve yourself of your favourite treats, sometimes the only thing that's gonna make you feel good after a really shitty day is a Dominos Pizza and a share size bag of Maltesers. That's ok... do what makes you happy! I don't want to be that person that promotes comfort eating, and rewarding your body with unhealthy good etc, but sometimes, just sometimes, the chocolate bar will make you feel good and it tastes bloody amazing. Don't deny it ladies...

 Work out - just to counteract all of healthy living police who are cursing me for allowing myself a treat on a bad day, I thought I'd include working out in this list too, because guess what, sometimes after a long day, and three chocolate bars, working out also makes me feel pretty amazing and boosts my mood. I never used to think I'd be that person, where I'd come home from work really stressed, and exercise would be my mood booster, and release, but honestly it does make you feel amazing and the endorphins (happy hormones) it releases in your body increase your mood massively. It can sound like a chore, and the last thing you'd want to do if you're in a bad mood, but believe me, try it, it can make you feel amazing: just do something you love, whether it be yoga, going to the gym, weights, a dance class, football, whatever type of exercise you love, do that. You'll feel amazing! For me, it's always Yoga it calms me and makes me feel SO good.


Read a book - There's just something so therapeutic to me about reading a book. Although as I start reading the book, I'll admit I'm in the worst mood, but as I begin to turn the pages and get lost in another fantasy, another world, another storyline, I feel as though I've escaped. It doesn't matter what I'm reading, it just instantly makes me feel better and I feel good. Accompanied by a strawberry milkshake, or a hot chocolate and you're on your way to feeling amazing.

Catch up with a relative/friend - I don't mean the type of toxic friends or relatives that you've been putting off talking to for months because they make you feel crappy, cut those sorts of people out of your life. I mean the kinds of people in your life that always make you feel good, that make you laugh, that support you and are there for you. Give them a text, or a call, better than that meet up if you can, it will boost your mood instantly! You don't have to talk about your problems, or theirs, just being in there presence will make you feel better.

 Listen to your favourite music - loud - is there any other way to listen to music other than LOUD, especially when you're feeling down! Create a playlist of all your favourite songs, and whenever you're feeling down, pop those headphones in and get singing at the top of your voice, the louder, the better. This one always works and makes me feel good.


Have a hot chocolate - especially in your most favourite, pretty mug. With all the toppings: marshmallows, whipped cream, chocolate shavings. Go for it! I mean whoever thought to create hot chocolates was clearly all about self care and indulgence because as soon as I sip a hot chocolate, with marshmallows and whipped cream, I feel good, cosy and in a much better mood. Allow yourself 5 minutes out, longer if possible. Drink your hot chocolate and don't dwell on bad thoughts, remind yourself that you have so many positive things to be happy about. :)

♥ Go outside - A breath of fresh air, big, deep breathes, and counting to 10, taking in the scenery always makes me feel better. It reminds me that everything will be ok. I love going outside, although I'm a real homely person, sometimes you've just got to escape and a 10 minute walk, away from the craziness can do wonders for the mind and soul.

♥ Stop feeling sorry for yourself - If all else fails, girl stop feeling so sorry for yourself. You've overcome everything in your life so far, what you're worrying about could be really silly, or it could feel like you've got the whole world on your shoulders. Talk it out if you can, but stop feeling sorry for yourself. You've got to get on with things, especially if you're worrying that you haven't got anything to wear in your wardrobe and it's stressing you the eff out... girl we've all been there. But we've just got to get on with it... Pinterest outfit inspiration, and put together a new outfit with something you already have in your wardrobe... problem sorted. In most cases, minor mood swings and problems can be solved with a little bit of self care and positive thinking. But if you're seriously worried about something, and feeling down a problem shared is a problem halved. Talk to people you trust and get some help. You don't have to struggle alone. ♥

I hope you've found something that helps you feel happier, and will boost your mood today!

10 Things I've Loved This Summer. ♥

Wednesday, 13 September 2017

It's been a really hard Summer for me this year, and not one I'll necessarily remember as one of the happiest Summer's of my life. As some of you may know, I lost my lovely Gran, read more here, which was incredibly difficult. But I've tried my best, despite the circumstances, to be happy, content and enjoy my Summer. It's really flew by, I know we're like mid September already, and Autumn is well and truly on it's way (my favourite time of year, bring on all the hot chocolates, knit wear, crunchy, Autumn leaves, candles, and cosy evenings!) and despite all of the sadness, there has been some pretty exciting, lovely and amazing things that have happened to me this Summer so I thought I'd share 10 of my favourite things that I've loved about Summer 2017, with you all, today. 


♥ 1. We bought a house - This is probably one of the happiest and most exciting times of this Summer. I mentioned it slightly in this post, but Mr B and I have bought our dream home, and we're currently in the process of renovating which has been all sorts of crazy but so much fun and excitement all at the same time - it's also meant that I get to go to Ikea and lots of pretty homeware places rather a lot, which I never complain about :) We're so happy and we cannot wait for this next chapter in our lives!

♥ 2. Reading in the garden - or just reading in general. Despite the lack of amazing weather in the UK this summer, I love reading in the garden in warmer weather, there's just something so relaxing about it. :) I've really enjoyed reading No Filter by Grace Victory this Summer and Thirteen Weddings by Paige Toon - what has been your favourite read this Summer?

♥ 3. Making the most of Summer Fashion & Make Up - I've well and truly made the most of wearing my Summer wardrobe, and rocked way too many bright lips this Summer. You only get the chance of wearing bright, Summery colours once a year so you may as well make the most of it right? I've loved wearing bright nail colours too, and wearing all the pretty, embellished sandals.

♥ 4. Working with amazing brands - So this Summer has been insane for The Perks of Being Sharna. I've been so lucky and fortunate enough to work with some amazing brands and collaborate on content that I never even dreamed of happening, on my corner of the web. I still sometimes have to pinch myself that I'm lucky enough to work with brands and I can't believe that they, actually want to work with little old me! :) :) :)

♥ 5. Weekends away - With the craziness of everything going on my life, a Summer holiday was the least of my priorities. I went away to Ibiza earlier this year anyway, but this is the first time in years that I haven't gone away over the Summer. I'm not gonna lie, I've been so jealous of everybody Instagramming photos of themselves tanned on the beach, but there's always next year, and we've enjoyed some pretty, special weekends away which have been really lovely! No matter where in the world it is, visiting the beach is always lovely and I've loved our weekends away this Summer! :)

♥ 6. Celebrating one year of being engaged - Summer 2016 was a major year for me, probably one of the happiest of my life as Mr B and I got engaged! One of my most happy and favourite moments of this Summer was celebrating one year of being engaged to my lovely Fiance. Once we're moved into our new home, I cannot wait to start wedding planning... eeeeek!!! :)

♥ 7. Spending quality time with family and friends - This summer I've tried to make an effort to spend quality time with my loved ones. If this Summer has taught me anything it's that life is so short, and you've really got to do what makes you happy, surrounding yourself with people who make you feel good. So I've been trying to do just that, and I've loved making memories with all of my favourite people.

♥ 8. Journalling - I've been journalling this Summer which is a new venture for me. I've always been into keeping a journal and writing my thoughts down, but this Summer I've been more serious about it, and have been trying to remember to do it daily, so far it's been a success, and I cannot wait to look back on my thoughts of Summer 2017 in years to come, I just need to keep it up! Next I want to try Bullet Journalling! :)

♥  9. Chilled days - Another thing I've loved this Summer is just doing absolutely nothing at all. It's been a CRAZY Summer to say the least and I've had SO much going on in my life, so I've been grabbing every bit of free time that I have and treating myself to lots of lazy time, watching my favourite shows on Netflix (see below), reading, painting my nails, drinking lots of hot chocolate and strawberry milkshake, just generally making more time for the things I love and it's really helped in terms of my mental health, especially on days where I've felt like I'm going crazy and there aren't enough hours in the day.

♥ 10. Jane the Virgin & Power - Finally two of my favourite TV shows that I've absolutely LOVED this Summer are these two beauties. They're so completely different but they're both available on Netflix. Check them out and watch the trailers if you haven't already, because you're seriously missing out.


I hope you've enjoyed today's post. It's been lovely to look back on Summer 2017, despite how crazy it's been there's been so much I've enjoyed. I'm really looking forward to Autumn and Winter though - it's my absolute favourite time of year! CHRISTMASSSS!!!! (Sorry. Not Sorry, to throw that in there Mid September, for all you scrooges!)

I just wanted to thank you all so much for your support this Summer, I couldn't have done it without you guys and I was really blown away by all of your kind words when I was having a hard time. You're the best. 

What did you guys love about Summer 2017? What was your favourite memory? What are you looking forward to about the following months in Autumn and Winter?

11 Things I'm Loving Right Now. ♥

Sunday, 10 September 2017

You guys know that I love sharing all of my favourites with you, and I haven't written this type of post in a while, so I thought I'd share a few of the things I'm loving right now, in no particular order. From mugs, to make up, to books, shoes, stationery, bags, purses and even fragrances! I hope you find something you love! ♥
♥ Cath Kidston x 101 Dalmatians Mug - £10 - available here 
I purchased this beautiful Cath Kidston mug a few months ago and I'm just obsessed. 101 Dalmatians has always been one of my all time favourite Disney films, so that fact that they've combined with my love for Cath Kidston is just the dream! 
♥ Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color 'Embrace'* - £8.99 - available here (see swatch below!)
♥ Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color 'Embrace'* - £8.99 - available here

Ok let's discuss how beautiful this Revlon lip colour is! I've always been a massive fan of Revlon's Ultra HD Matte Lip Color formulas, but this pretty, girly, soft, rose shade is just stunning and has become my go to lip colour recently! It's a really complimenting, wearable, pink shade, that would suit and compliment most skin tones. It's perfect for this time of year, as summer is drawing to a close, when you still want a touch of colour on your lips, but nothing too overpowering! The finish is matte, but not drying on your lips in the slightest. It's a dream to apply the lip colour, it's incredibly smooth, soft and velvety in terms of texture. You cannot feel the lip product sitting on the lips, and it's very comfortable to wear. 

Pigmentation is out of this world, with just one swipe over your lips, you are left with bold, pigmented, gorgeous colour. No need for two coats. At first, you will notice that the colour looks quite glossy, however, don't be fooled, this glossy finish disappears after around 5-10 seconds of drying and you are left with a beautiful semi-matte/matte finish.  

 I'm really impressed with the lasting power and the lovely stain it leaves on your lips, it lasts for around 3-4 hours before I need to top up. Best of all, the fruity, Vanilla scent reminds me of Summery days and is almost good enough to eat! I can't recommend the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colors enough -there's an amazing variety of shades available so be sure to check them out next time you're in Boots.  

 ♥ Revlon Photo Ready Insta-Fix Highlighting Stick 'Gold Light'* -£9.99 - available here (see swatch below)
♥ Revlon Photo Ready Insta-Fix Highlighting Stick 'Gold Light'* -£9.99 - available here 

Ok so you guys know, I'm a sucker for a highlight. Give me all the glow! I adore having a make up finish that is glowy, dewy and radiant. Recently I've been using the Revlon Photo Ready Insta-Fix Highlighting Stick in 'Gold Light' and I've become obsessed with the natural, luminous glow it gives my skin! The Golden shade gives you a gorgeous shimmer that's not too overpowering, just a lovely, healthy glow that makes you look amazing and feel confident! 

It's really simple and easy to apply to your skin. I tend to apply it to my forehead, cheekbones, bridge of nose, chin, underneath my eyebrows and anywhere my skin would naturally attract light! The stick function makes application easy and precise, especially for on the go! Lasting power is fantastic, the glow lasts for most of the day, and will last my 9-5 day, with just one top up at lunch time - which is amazing!

Pigmentation is fab, as you can see from the swatch above, where I only swatched one coat. I tend to use just one coat during the day for a more natural, subtle glow but if I'm on a night out, or it's a special occasion I will build the product up for an even more glowy, luminous, strobed finish. This stick will last forever as a little really does go a long way! I'm obsessed! Revlon also do another variation of this highlighting stick in the shade 'Champagne' - I'm really looking forward to trying that one. For the price, amazing pigmentation, lasting power, finish and quality, you simply cannot go wrong! 
♥ Academic Diary - £2.50 - Wilkos - available here 
I can't get enough of this cute, little, bargain that I picked up from Wilkos a few weeks ago! I thought the rose gold and pink design was gorgeous and I'm always looking for lovely, pretty, academic diaries at this time of year. At just £2.50 it was such a bargain! They also sold it in Mint Green which was equally as gorgeous! 
♥ Grace Victory - No Filter - £12 - available here
I've been a viewer of Grace's since she started her channel, and have always admired her honesty and amazing sense of humour, plus she's an absolute BABE. Look at her! If you're a viewer of Grace's or not, you really do need to buy this book - it's the perfect companion for young women and men. Grace openly discusses her struggles from Body Image, Domestic Violence, Mental Health, Anxiety, Sex, Food, and so much more, you name it - Grace discusses it and she makes you feel a whole lot less alone in your struggles. She gives advice, and by sharing her own experiences, she creates awareness for so many taboo subjects. It made me laugh and cry! Not only is it relatable, but like you're having a deep convo with your bestie - I read it within 2 days - it was that good!  Totally recommend! If you aren't already subscribed to Grace's channel - get yourself there girl. You can find it here. 
♥ Oasis Embroidery Espadrilles - was £28 now only £10!!!!! (Bargain!) - available here
As soon as I spotted these gorgeous black, embroidery espadrilles on the Oasis website, I had to have them in my life! I just loved how unique they were, and I hadn't seen anything as good as quality as them anywhere else online. Plus black goes with everything and they're really easy to style. I've been such a huge fan of the embroidery trend this summer - so I'm literally wearing these to death before Summer comes to an end in a few weeks! I originally bought them for full price, but now they're only £10, which is such a bargain because the quality is beautiful, and the design is even more stunning! Get yourself a bargain, girls! 
♥ Vitage Illuminating Tanning Drops* - £39- available here
You guys all know how obsessed I am with tanning products - I'm literally turning into a tanning product expert and I'm finally finding the ones that really work the best for me, my skin and give me the best results. I featured these lovely Illuminating Tanning drops on both my blog, here and on my Instagram page here, this past month and you guys cannot get enough of hearing about them, so I thought I'd give them a more in depth mention in this post and explain why I've become obsessed with them! The tanning drops are really simple, quick and easy to use. You simply add your desired amount of drops (more drops = more tanned) into your regular moisturiser, and allow the tan to develop throughout the day or overnight. Over the following days, you're left with flawless, natural, streak-free, radiant, tanned and golden skin! You can use this stuff on your face and body, and it's the perfect solution if you want to personalise your tan, and create a colour that's buildable and suitable for you! I really like using the drops on areas like my elbows, knees, feet, hands and face, where I want an even, tanned, glow but nothing too harsh, patchy or disastrous! I can't recommend these tanning drops enough! You need them in your life! 
♥ Micahel Kors Studded Bag* - Jules B - £169
♥ Michael Kors Studded Purse* - Jules B - was £74.99  now only £37.50 ... bargain!!!  

Ok let's talk about how beautiful this matching Michael Kors bag and purse are? These have literally been my go to companions of late, and they haven't left my side. I absolutely love the quality of them, and how easy they are to pair alongside different outfits. They're really classy, and will never go out of style! I'm a little bit in love...
♥ So...? 'Wild Berries'* and 'Floriental'* Body Mists - £3.99 each - available here 

For as long as I can remember, I've been a fan of So...? Fragrances and body sprays. When I was at school as a teenager, you were simply not cool if you were not equipped with the fruitest, So...? fragrance. I remember I would carry their So...? Sinful fragrance every where I went, and even now when I catch a whiff of it, it reminds me of being a teenager and brings back so much nostalgia. Recently, I fell back in love with So...? but this time with their stunning Body Mists. If you haven't tried these Body Mists already, you've been seriously missing out and need to get yourself stocked up, as soon as possible! First of all, how cute is the packaging? So girly, feminine and lovely to have sitting on my dressing table! So...? have 6 body mists available so there will definitely be a fragrance that we'll all fall in love with! The scents are also focused on either: Deliciously fruity or beautifully floral. Sounds amazing right? Best of all, the fragrances are not overpowering, and they're so fresh and easy to wear. They're also a perfect addition to your fragrance collection in Summer, when I like to keep my Body Mists in the fridge, so that they're cool and refreshing every time I spritz some onto my skin, in the warm weather! 

 Two of my favourite body mists from the So...? Body Mist range, have to be: 

Wild Berries - This is such a stunning fragrance, described as a wild scent that teases your senses! It's full of fruity, wild berry notes. I've been wearing this beauty almost daily, and I know it will be even more lovely to wear in the Autumn months. 

Floriental -  Again another beautiful fragrance, this body mist is a more floral based scent. Described as a cocktail blend of floral and fruity notes. Perfection from start to finish. With notes of mouth watering Manadrin, and Apple it awakes your senses before melting you into a medley of freesia and violet = heavenly! 

I can't recommend the So...? Body mists enough. At just £3.99 for 100ml bottles, they're an absolute bargain and the scents are just beautiful! 


I hope you've enjoyed todays post and that you've found something you love!

Bondi Sands Ultra Dark Tanning Foam Review. ♥

Wednesday, 6 September 2017

♥ Bondi Sands Ultra Dark Self Tanning Foam* - £17.99 - available here

Ok, so you guys have been asking me for ages to write a review of the Bondi Sands Ultra Dark Self Tanning Foam, which has been the talks of the beauty bloggersphere for the past year and for good reason too! Bondi Sands is a relatively new love in my tanning collection, for years I was using Gradual Tanners from High Street brands like Garnier, Palmer's, and Dove, and then I tried the Bondi Sands Dark Tanning Foam and it just changed the tanning game forever, for me. Read my full review of my favourite tanner, ever Bondi Sands, Dark Self Tanning Foam here. It's been the only tan I've been using since March, which is HUGE for me as I'm such a tanning addict and I'm forever swapping tans and trying new ones. Obviously when I heard that they did my most favourite tan, in an Ultra Dark shade, I had to see what all the fuss was about. So here are my thoughts: 

♥ Bondi Sands Ultra Dark Self Tanning Foam* - £17.99 - available here

♥ Price -
I thought we should get the price out of the way first! This little beauty is slightly on the expensive side. The Ultra Dark foam is priced at £17.99 rather than the Dark Tanning Foam which is priced at £14.99, which is a shame, but you're obviously paying for darker results, which is understandable, although the medium/light option of this tan isn't any cheaper than the dark shade, so I'm not sure why Ultra Dark is slightly more expensive! I know that this tan is obviously in the higher end section of tanners, however if you like the results and how dark, yet natural you look, you can justify the price tag, that little bit more.

♥ Scent -
The scent of the Ultra Dark foam is similar to that of the Dark tanning foam by Bondi Sands. It has a lovely scent which reminds me of all things coconut and Summer holidays!  Amazingly there isn't a trace of that biscuity smell, that we all hate, that is disappointingly, in so many other great tanning products! The scent also sticks around, which is a lovely addition to the product, leaving you smelling like fresh coconuts, until you wash the tan off in the shower, it doesn't develop into any other scent whilst the tan develops either = winner!


♥ Bondi Sands Ultra Dark Self Tanning Foam* - £17.99 - available here

 ♥ Application and Formula- 

I apply the Bondi Sands Ultra Dark tanning foam, with the Bondi Sands Exfoliating Mitt, which is £5.99 but is so worth the purchase if you want ease of application. It preps your skin for tanning, whilst applying the tan so it's a dual purpose tanning mitt that makes application a dream. I use the pump function, to pump out 2-3 pumps of the tan, onto my mitt, and then I apply the foam in circular motions. Like the Bondi Sands Dark Foam, Ultra Dark is a brown shade that is darker than my skin colour, this makes application really lovely because you can see any areas that you've missed easily, and apply more foam accordingly. The formula has green undertones in it too, which should ensure you don't go orange, but instead turn into a tanned goddess! More about that later! Anyway back to application, the colour is like I said, a dull, dark brown, don't be alarmed by this because this isn't the colour that your tan develops into. 

The texture of Ultra Dark is the same as the Dark version, it's quite velvety, smoothing really easily into the skin, with no fuss! Application isn't messy, and best of all, the foam doesn't stain everything it comes into contact with! Much like the Bondi Sands Dark Foam, this is a really simple, easy and fun tan to use, even if you're a tanning newbie and want to plunge into Tanned Goddess mode, you cannot go wrong with this stuff! I found the Ultra Dark Foam slightly stickier than the Dark Foam, which wasn't sticky at all, but it's not unbearable and after around 30 minutes there is practically no sticky residue at all. You can put on your clothes pretty much straight away, as the tan doesn't transfer at all. With the Dark tan, I do slightly have a red/brown transfer (not sure why it's red) especially on my sheets, but with the Ultra Dark I have no transfer at all - which is always fab!

I tend to apply just 1 coat of the Ultra Dark tan, as any more would probably look ridiculous on me! 

Once you've applied your tan, got your clothes on and are chilling with some magazines and a hot chocolate, it's up to you to decide how long you'd like to leave the tan on to develop. Bondi Sands say that you can leave it on to develop anywhere up to 6 hours, depending on your desired level of tan. Obviously the longer you leave it on, the more tanned you will be. I tend to apply this after showering and prepping my skin by exfoliating, and then leave the tan on overnight. Don't quote me on this, but I'm guessing the tan will just stop developing after 6 hours, so it won't go any darker than the maximum level of 6 hours, as this just makes application really easy for me being able to wear it overnight! I've had no problems doing this. 

Once you've left the tan on to develop for your desired amount of time, it will probably appear quite dull and darker than you'd imagine, however this is just the formula of the tan and not the actual tan itself. You simply wash it off in the shower with medium heat water. If it's too hot it will ruin your tan, if it's too cold it wont wash away properly. Don't use shower gel or anything, simply use the water to wash away the tan. Once you've washed the tan away, you're good to go!

♥ Results -
Although I'm naturally pale, you guys will know by now, I LOVE to be tanned! So I obviously was really excited to see the colour results of the Ultra Dark Foam and how they differed from the Dark Foam. Light to medium tan options, barely touch the surface for me. I always buy the Dark option no matter what tan I use. I was really impressed with the Bondi Sands Dark Foam. It gave me tanned results I could only dream of, it wasn't orange in the slightest and I just felt amazing wearing it as it was so sun kissed and incredibly natural, making me look naturally olived skin. The Ultra Dark tan results were pretty amazing too, and quite similar but obviously darker- but not massively darker! I would say I achieved similar results to using the Dark Foam twice on my skin, by just applying 1 coat of the Ultra Dark foam. Which is obviously amazing as it saves me time and I get basically the same results - the Ultra Dark Foam has a slightly different undertone once developed though, possibly aimed at the more olive skinned gals and guys, and not aimed as much at us pale folk! The Ultra Dark also has the teeniest, tiniest amount of orange tone in it once developed too, which I was disappointed by as the Dark Foam was the most natural shade of brown/tan ever and looked like I'd be on my hols for a month, with no orange tones AT ALL. Sadly, with just one coat on my elbows, and over my legs and feet I wasn't left with the same colour pay off or results as my beloved Bondi Sands Dark Foam, the results were slightly patchy and far too dark over my elbows/feet/knees. In all honesty, this is probably because I'm too pale to use this tan and I think the dark foam suits my natural skin colour better. I might even try only applying this for just a few hours, before washing away, and see if results differ.

 ♥ Lasting Power -
The Dark Foam has lasting power that is out of this world. Honestly I'm obsessed with that stuff can you tell? It is the best tan I've used both for colour results and lasting power. The Ultra Dark tan is also quite impressive, it lasts me around a week before fading, and starting to go slightly patchy in some drier areas, although nothing noticeable, (this is probably my fault because I don't moisturise as often as I should, it would probably last longer if I did) however the longer I wear the tan, the more slightly orange it gets - which is such a shame! Don't get me wrong, it's not noticeably orange, but I can see some tones of it, the longer I wear it which doesn't happen when I wear the Dark Foam - at all. I think I've just noticed this because I love the Dark Foam so much, and that can do no wrong in my eyes! When it starts to patch, I will  do the same routine over again, shower, exfoliate and reapply. It's really simple and straightforward.

♥ Bondi Sands Ultra Dark Self Tanning Foam* - £17.99 - available here

 ♥ Cons- 
So as you've probably noticed, I don't like the Bondi Sands Ultra Dark Foam as much as I do the Dark version. The Ultra Dark Foam is an amazing tanner - please don't be fooled. But once you try pure heaven in a bottle, that gives you the colour pay off, staying power & results that you've always dreamed of, there's no going back. I think that the Ultra Dark Foam is aimed at more olive skinned gals and guys, as the colour results once applied are slightly different and lean towards a finish that would compliment more of a slightly darker or olive skin tone. Nevertheless, try this for yourselves, I've read some glowing reviews on it, it's a good tan - it does the job well, giving you a sunkissed, dark, olive look, that lasts but at £17.99, I'm not sure if I'd repurchase! For me, nothing will beat Bondi Sands Dark Self Tanning Foam. Read my full review on that here and see why I love it so much! It's such a dream - honestly - hands down - THE BEST TANNER I HAVE EVER USED. 

I'm really looking forward to trying more Bondi Sands products (I'm loving their Tan Eraser at the moment - let me know if you'd like to see a full review!) I'm just not sure they'll live up to my fave Bondi Sands Dark Self Tanning Foam!!!
