Marianna Boutique Spring event

Marianna boutique is a sophisticated and modern fashion store located on St Peters Street in Ipswich, Suffolk. Having recently been taken over by the gorgeous fashionista, Arabella Brown, the store has since been given a bit of a revamp, and I simply cannot resist to enter as I pass the ever changing gorgeous window displays!

To celebrate the first day of spring, Arabella held an exclusive event offering shoppers 20% off selected brands, plus a chance to sip on some bubbly, nibble on some canapés, and take a peek at the new collections featured in the store.

As you can see, there was a pretty impressive display of seriously delicious canapé's and, of course..champagne!!

After sipping on some bubbly, I then had a quick browse through some of the collections- which were simply divine.
The boutique is decorated so tastefully, and definitely puts other Ipswich boutiques to shame!

Beauty: The Benefit "that gal" Brightening Face Primer

I have only recently become a fan of the benefit makeup, I think for me their pricing and slightly OTT packaging had me thinking that there stuff was just a bit of a gimmick, and perhaps not as good as MAC. However, since buying their promotional stocking offer recently, and picking up a few minis from the range, I have succumbed to the hype and would now say that I am a solid fan of the brand. This product is a particular favourite of mine, after using a tester size and squeezing every last drop out of it, I just had to pick up the original size one, and with 10% off this weekend, It didn't break the bank too much.

Skincare: Origins Out of Trouble Facial Mask

I am a bit of a sucker when it comes to face masks, to me theres nothing better than spending a sunday night pampering yourself with a bubbly bath, a glass of Pino and a hard working face mask. I particularly love the Origins face masks as for me they really work in terms of deep cleaning and ridding the skin of any excess dirt and oil. I normally use my origins charcoal mask which is fab for deep cleansing the pores, however recently on a trip to boots, origins were doing a great offer where you buy 3 masks in one set, the charcoal one, their intensive overnight mask and this one for just £20! And considering I hadn't tried the Out of trouble* mask before, I wasn't going to miss this opportunity.

Lifestyle: 7 tips to boost your CV and secure that dream job

After months of emails, cover letters and CVs I have finally managed to secure myself a job, and not just any job, a proper, grown up and slightly nerve racking marketing job. After studying PR and Journalism at University, Marketing was always a strong career option for me, I felt like I fitted in better with the whole social media and business aspects of it as opposed to the cut-throat world of Journalism.  I know I am incredibly lucky to have secured my first job, however luck was just a portion of it. I feel that I wouldn't have gotten anywhere without my degree, various different work experiences and above all, my blog. For someone wanting to go into Journalism, marketing, PR or advertising having a blog and relevant work experience is imperative in boosting your CV and putting you ahead of the other thousands of graduates looking to get their foot in the door. I want to put my experiences to good use so in this post I will be giving you some tips on how to ensure your CV is put to the top of the pile.

Lifestyle: Burning Yankee Candles The Cheap Way

I absolutely adore candles, I love that lighting a simple candle can create such a gorgeous atmosphere and leave a lovely warm glow and subtle scent. Like most other woman my age, I am a massive fan of the Yankee candles, specifically because their candles are so well scented and they have many different types to choose from, whether that be fresh scents such as clean cotton or sweet and sickly scents such as vanilla cupcake, their products will cater to everyone at any age.
