The Liebster Award

Sunday 13th April 2014

So I've been a little absent for a couple of weeks now, obviously as a new blogger it's not a great start but I've honestly been dying to get stuck in and I've got so many ideas for blog posts. It's so frustrating that I've not had the time! When I started this blog it really was in preparation for the summer as I knew that's when I'd have some free time and able to get into my stride, blogging frequently and fully enjoying being part of the blogging community. Until then I was hoping to squeeze in a post a week but unfortunately that's not quite been the case. As I'm now just two months away from graduating, it's been hectic trying to balance all my coursework, my job and actually getting two minutes to spend time with my boyfriend, I've not even had time to shop which is really unlike me! 

The other day when I got an email saying that the lovely Phoebe from Phoebe in Wonderland had commented on my blog about nominating me for the Liebster award I was really intrigued. With a little google I soon learned that it was similar to a chain mail and a clever little way of getting to know new bloggers. I thought it sounded like a really sweet idea and I'm so grateful to Phoebe for nominating me as I honestly didn't even think anyone was even reading my blog yet! So let's get stuck in…

A Little Bird's Boots Purchases

Monday 24th March 2014

So as we all know as beauty lovers it's pretty much impossible to walk past Boots when they have their huge 3 for 2 on. Today I want to show with you the products I picked up and my first impressions of them...

A Little Bird's Shoeholics Obsession

Friday 7th March 2014

So I'm finally taking the leap into blogging. After years of following the beauty and lifestyle community both through blogs and on Youtube I thought it was about time I built up the courage to join in (although I doubt I'll ever have enough confidence to star on Youtube!)

I suppose I should start by introducing myself, my names Amanda and I'm a final year Graphic Design student from Newcastle. With the scary reality of graduation looming just around the corner and the almost certainty of a long, jobless summer I thought it was the perfect time to get another hobby to keep myself busy! I fill my spare time with baking and experimenting with lots of crafty bits and bobs (some of which I hope to share with you here). But one of my ultimate favourite past times is trailing the 'bloggersphere' to find the best beauty and fashion 'must haves' as well as hunting down my own discoveries on the high street. I hope this little blog will prove to be the perfect platform to share with you what I find. 

So enough chit chat and onto the beauty, lifestyle and fashion posts (with perhaps a few baking bits sprinkled in too!)

I hope you come back and visit again soon.
