Make-Up Review | Xenca Perfection Lipstick in 'Cherry'*

A while ago now, I had the fantastic delight of attending the #NorthernBloggerMeetUp in Sheffield. The day ended up being one of the best events I've attended since starting blogging, as I managed to socialise with a lot of fellow bloggers, and even made firm friends with some.

Halloween | Horror Films #1 - The Classics

As Halloween is fast approaching (it's tomorrow now, where has October gone), I figured I'd do a quick little post to share with you all my favourite horror films. And what better way to start with the classic horrors that pretty much defined the genre as we know it today?

TV Review | The Walking Dead S05E02: 'Strangers'

Since the preview we got last week, I've been impatiently waiting for this weeks episode. And what with such an action packed episode, it could only get better right? I'm going to apologise now about this being up a bit later than usual - I've been seriously ill for the past week and this is the first chance I've got to write it, so thanks for your patience!

Autumn Beauty Haul #2

I seriously need to inflict a shopping ban on myself. But I just can't help it - I see so many nice things when I'm trying my hardest to curb my spending. Especially in TK Maxx (which I have just recently discovered do amazing beauty brands at really low prices). Sooner or later I can see myself like Isla Fisher in 'Confessions of a shopaholic' in being sent to shopaholics anonymous! But for now whilst I keep spending, I may aswell show you what I have...

TV Review | The Walking Dead S05E01: 'No Sanctuary'

Dino's Beauty Diary - The Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 1 No Sanctuary Review

Hallelujah, ITS BACK. Yes it's that time of year again when AMC's 'The Walking Dead' graces our screens again. For months now I've been waiting for this moment, stalking twitter feeds and constantly googling TWD for any insight or dare I say it, spoiler, into what has become of our beloved characters.

Birchbox | October 'Work It!'

You know what time it is. That time of the month where every beauty blogger with a birchbox subscription is either sat on the stairs or pacing around in the hallway waiting for that special delivery. Each month I get an email stating my birchbox is on its way, and until it come's I'm forever asking my mum 'have I got a parcel yet?'.

A very #LUSHChristmas | Nottingham

Dino's Beauty Diary - Lush Nottingham Bloggers Event -

A couple of weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to get a lovely email from Urika Chiu, who works in PR at Lush, inviting me to their Christmas launch at the Nottingham store. I was so excited to be invited to such a fantastic event, as my love (and lets face it, obsession) with Lush has been growing huge amounts recently.

Autumn Beauty Haul #1

Amid all the planning for the #BloggersSecretSanta14, it was quite clear some retail therapy was needed! So when Hannah traveled to Nottingham to look at the venue, we knew we'd have to do some shopping! After all, planning such an event is hard work, right? ;)

Skincare Review | Lush 'Cupcake' Face Mask

Dino's Beauty Diary - Lush Cupcake Face Mask Review

A while ago now, I did what was to be my first ever beauty haul (which can be found here). My friend Carrie picked up the 'Cupcake' face mask, and since then I have been pretty much haunted by how good it smelt! As such, I knew I had to get it myself at some point.

#BloggersSecretSanta14 - Venue Announcement

Hey everyone!

So as most of you know, myself and Hannah are currently in the midst of arranging our blogger meet for the 15th November, how exciting! We have quite a few things in the works and we're so excited for you all to come along :). The day we set on planning a meet I sent just a couple of emails out to potential locations, inquiring if they wouldn't mind us using their venue rooms. Imagine how amazed I was when I got an email from Tom, the person in charge of things at some of the branches of 'Great Northern Inn's' in Nottingham! He was absolutely lovely and ever so friendly that me and Hannah we're immediately excited! He even offered for us to go and view the venue of our choice, which we can now announce is;
