Blogmas Day 14 // 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 Day 13 // 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 Day 12 // 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…

Blogmas Day 11 // Winter Candle Picks

It it even Christmas if you don’t light all your candles in your house and buy a dedicated Winter/Christmas candle to burn whilst you’ve got the tree up? Yeah, I thought not. I bloody love a candle. When we see people talking about candles on telly, Darren often says, you love a candle you don’t…

Blogmas Day 10 // Your Good Skin 28 Day Review

If you’re regular around here you’ll know that I’m a huge skincare fan. I like to take care of my skin; removing my make up as soon as I get home from work and using a variety of cleansers and toners, before applying serums and moisturisers before bed. I really like giving my skin that…

Blogmas Day 9 // Festive Cookies Bake-along

It wouldn’t be December and Christmas time without getting into the kitchen and baking! I had a day off work to take recently so I took full advantage and got my bake on. Whilst it would make more sense to make gingerbread or mince pies, you can’t wrong with chocolate chip cookies! If you’re a…

Looking for small gift ideas or stocking fillers for your work Secret Santa, your little Sis or even a little something extra for your best mate? Well, I don’t think you can go wrong with retro lip balms. I don’t know about you but this time of year I’m constantly reaching for my lip balm…

Blogmas Day 7 // Bistrot Pierre, Southport Review

A couple of weeks ago I received an email, sharing the news of a new restaurant opening in Southport, on Lord Street. I’m not sure if you know but I’m originally from Wigan and currently live in Ormskirk, so Southport is somewhere that I visited regularly as a child and it’s somewhere me and boyfriend…

Blogmas Day 6 // Bedside Table Essentials

I’ll admit, I can be quite a nosey person. I love watching programmes like Cribs and Through the Keyhole (lolz) cos I like to see what’s inside a person’s house. The segment on Come Dine With Me when they go and nosey around to find incriminating stuff is my fave. So, I thought why not…

Blogmas Day 5 // Kiko Milano Cosmetics First Impressions

I’ve wanted to try Kiko Milano Cosmetics for a while after having a nosey in the Covent Garden store earlier in the year, but due to the location of the store it was just too busy to even consider getting matched. So, on a day-trip up to Glasgow last month I spotted my chance and…

Blogmas Day 4 // SW Healthy Snacks

The festive season can be quite tricky for us Slimming Wolders. I’ve spent the last 6 months taking drinks, off-plan snacks and cheat days into consideration, but Christmas signals the month of overindulgence, after-work drinks and the small bowls of Roses appearing around the house! As it stands I’m just half a stone away from…

Blogmas Day 3 // Birchbox v Vogue

I’ve blogged about beauty subscription boxes many times in the past because I love the idea of receiving a variety of new products or brands to try each month. I actually receive my Birchbox through work and when I heard it was a collab box with Vogue I couldn’t wait to get my hands on…
