Beauty // Four Fave Burgundy Make Up Products

I haven’t shared any new additions to my make up bag for a while, so here we go with a new beauty post of the products I’m loving at the moment. Burgundy is the perfect wintery shade and whilst we normally reserve it for December, I’m putting this handful of products to work well into…

Beauty // January Birchbox x Ohh Deer Review

I’m back with another Birchbox review – this time it’s the January box in collaboration with Ohh Deer. I’ll admit, my views are mixed as my subscription rolls on… The Good Ok, so I adore design. It’s very kitsch and playful, which I love and I’ve spotted Ohh Deer designs on Instagram so it’s good…

Recipe // Porridge Bowl With Coconut, Blueberries & Pago Drinks

Since the turn of the year I’ve swerved the idea of eating well as part of any new years resolution, but I’m back in the Slimming World zone with my meal planning and variety of meals. So, I thought I’d kick off getting back into the swing of recipe posts with a new recipe post….

Fashion // Buying The Handbag Of My Dreams

Ok, so I’ve always been a handbag girl. Ever since I can remember, I’ve lusted after new bags and for years I was always working towards my next bag. Back when I was 16 and got my first job, I remember heading to Debenhams to the Fiorelli concession when I’ve saved up to treat myself…

Food // Heavenly Desserts, The Strand, Liverpool

I don’t know about you but when going out dinner, along with the routine of reading the menu hours in advance I also like to take a look at the desserts on offer. You know, I case I have room. (Jokes, I always have room for dessert). But Heavenly Desserts makes the choice super simple……

Beauty // The Beauty Rooms, Ormskirk Review

You may have read my latest beauty post about the fabulous Urban Calm shopping event in the Met Quarter, back in December, when I mentioned the brand had a smaller store tucked away in Ormskirk, West Lancashire? I’ve lived in Ormskirk for two years now and I love a regular pamper sesh as much as…

Drinks // Mocktail Hotspots in Liverpool

I don’t know about you but the start of the New Year and the welcome of January signal many of us deciding to swerve the alcohol for the foreseeable future. It’s the month for getting re-acquainted with soft drinks, H20 and steering clear of alcohol for a while. Dry January is a real and whilst…

Life // Can We Really Plan Goals for 2018?

When it comes to looking ahead to the next year and planning what I would like to achieve, I’m afraid I’m heading into it as blind as I did 365 days ago. 2017 was an alright year but not one to mark off in the record books. Nothing drastic happened, but we did move house…

Beauty // Urban Calm, Met Quarter Event

A couple of weeks ago I was invited along to an open evening store event at the Urban Calm store in the Met Quarter, Liverpool. I’d heard great things about the brand and already following the Aintree store on Instagram, so couldn’t wait to see what they had planned in-store! The event took place a…

Blogmas // My Favourite Xmas Tree Decorations

I can’t believe we’re half-way through Blogmas already! The month seems to be flying and Christmas Day is just over a week away! I’m sure you’ve noticed that I’ve done Blogmas my way – a mix of content and the type of posts you’d usually find on Ruth Writes, just a lot more frequent! But…

Blogmas // Festive Party Looks with Sleek Cosmetics

It’s that time of the year when Instagram is awash with photos of Christmas parties. The annual works do is such an event in the calendar with all your pals planning what everyone’s wearing, are pre-drinks happening beforehand and who’s going out-out afterwards. But for me, the party starts at home when I start doing…

Blogmas // Malmaison Festive Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea is something that’s enjoyed by many. Your parents, grandparents, get together with the girls…mini sandwiches and savoury eats will even put a slight smile on the face of your grumpy boyfriend. It’s just lovely. So, when the lovely guys over at The Malmaison Liverpool got in touch to invite a guest and I…
