Did I need new make up? No. Did I want the entire @kandeejohnson X @toofaced collection when it was announced? HELL YES!
I managed to restrain myself and only nabbed the eye palette (the perfect collection of the sweetest most wearable everyday shades ever) and the Half Baked liquid lipstick (hello new favourite nude) but now I've got it and realised how amazing both of them are I wish I'd be extra naughty and got more!!
Kandee is such an amazingly positive shining star on the internet. She's one of the few YouTubers who I stop whatever I'm doing to immediately watch on her videos when they're published. She's just the best!! Congratulations on your collab Kandee. I love you!!!
And for those of you that asked, I bought these via the Too Faced website, shipping was a little pricey (£17 inc customs) but they do ship to the UK!

My babe @crownandglory_ married her Gareth this weekend. It was such a wonderful wedding - THE BEST in fact! We laughed, we cried, we did shots, we ate pizza and the spiciest hot dogs, @veronicadearly and I did a speech, we drunk danced (and some of us drunk fell over), we abused the photo booth, we stole the skull shaped candles from the centrepieces, we got covered in glitter...
It rained really heavily the night before and the whole morning while we were getting ready. We were all trying to think positively and hoping the clouds would clear for just long enough for their outdoor ceremony. Well not only did they clear in the nick of time (literally 10 minutes before we were all due to start walking out!) but the most spectacular rainbow appeared when they were doing their photos. Talk about the wedding gods shining down on them! The full wedding story and official photos will, OF COURSE, be published in the magazine soon, but I couldn't resist sharing this little sneak peek.
Sophie wore a star embellished gown by @jennypackhambridal. She looked every bit the galactic princess. She is obsessed with gold, glitter and stars so I don't think there was ever a wedding dress more perfect for her!
Before I leave, brush my teeth with a bottle of Jack 'Cause when I leave for the night, I ain't coming back!
Did you know that @JackDaniels_uk offer customised bottles of their Single Barrel Whiskey? Talk about the perfect one-of-kind gift for your bridesmaids, groomsmen or new husband/ wife! What would you have your bottle say?
Their Signature Single Barrel Whiskey makes the perfect spirit to share with friends, toasting to those once-in-a-lifetime moments. Only 1 in every 100 barrels are chosen as Single Barrel, each hand selected by their Master Distiller, making it a very special gift for a very special day. #ad#WeddingSpirit#JackDanielsWeddingSpirit#personalisation.

The internet has brought us many amazing things: Hilarious cat videos, 24 hour access to pornography, and for me anyway, a friendship with Sophie. Making new friendships as an adult can be really hard so I count myself very lucky to have not only met Sophie at all, but to have been able to form such a strong, amazing friendship, even though we live on different sides of the country. Thank you Facebook Messenger for keeping our friendship alive. I’m not sure I’d be able to get through the day if I didn’t have Sophie right there ready have a moan, squeal over the latest episode of American Horror Story or send a stupid Gif that perfectly sums up my feelings at that exact moment.
This total babe got married yesterday and it was THE BEST. We laughed, we cried, we did shots, we drunk danced, we abused the photo booth, we got covered glitter... Sophie, I absolutely loved being your maid of honour. I love you so very much. You are one of a kind, a truly remarkable, wonderful and thoughtful person... Gareth, you’re alright too I suppose.
Congratulations Sophie & Gareth! We love youuuuu #cookefest

Walking on sunshine? No walking on rainbows!!
Tell me about something that made you smile today!
There's no such thing as telling someone you love them TOO MUCH. Gareth and I probably say it to each other every single day. Even when you're stressed, angry, agitated or sad I still think it's really important to say those three little words. If you haven't said it to your beloved recently, make sure you tell them tonight!
You know what I also love? This neon sign by @loveincltd that I spotted today! Err how cute would this look above my fireplace in my office or front room!!??
I’ve had so many messages since I started sharing our home renovation from people who are either buying their first house, or buying a renovation project, and are wondering if I have any advice. If you read my first blog post in the series you will already know that we had a DOOZY of a time trying to secure this place (I’ll tell you all about it over something alcoholic one day) so actually, I do have quite a few words of wisdom/ warning (delete as appropriate) for you!
Head over to the blog (link in profile) where I've written six tips/ things for you to think about when trying to buy a project home. I'm not an expert by any means but feel free to hit me up with your questions if you have any and I'll try best to help!
Finally convince Gareth to take a selfie with me and I accidentally cover his nose in lipstick. Oops. Please note the twinning pink tops. He bought a pink shirt at the airport all by himself today, literally no input from me. Who even are you right now Gareth?
Off to a party in Dublin for my mum's 60th. Bring on the Guinness!
Spotted in WhSmiths today! I'll never stop being so excited to see our magazine in shops! I think the next cover needs a brightly coloured background, what do you think?
Issue 16 is now on general sale and is available to buy at WhSmiths, Smith's Travel, Sainsburys and selected newsagents. International babes and those of you that prefer to have the hard work done for you can order one online via the link in my profile.
Where the magic happens (no not that you kinky little thing) - my office! It's definitely my favourite room in the house right now, mainly because it's the closest one to being finished and the least resembling an actual building site.
I'm very nearly there with it. I ordered a custom neon sign yesterday (SOOO EXCITED) and I'm going rug shopping in Marrakech with @nubbytwiglet in November! I just need to find some art for the walls (hit me up with any recommendations!) and a cute but comfortable sofa bed for guests. I found one I love on @loafhome yesterday but it was £2000 Has anyone got any tips for good sofabed places (I really want a dark dark blue velvet one!) for under £1000? #rocknrenovation

Go grab a copy and don't forget, you can always order via our website (with free UK shipping and worldwide delivery) if you're not able to find one in stores!
I LOVE YOU COME BACK TO ME I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT YOUUUUUU.
@helenanderz came to stay and we had the bestest time ever. Disney marathon, going mad in Primark, buying matching house coats & taking her to HomeSense for the first time! Counting down the minutes until our next adventure...

I can't quite believe we've done 16 whole issues already!
Which is your favourite cover? Mine is always the latest one . It's really interesting (to me anyway!) seeing them all laid out like this. You can definitely see we've gone cleaner as time has gone on. We've cut out the clutter with less text and we're picking images that are more editorial (but still using only real brides/grooms!) I'm definitely feeling those lighter, brighter backgrounds too.
Issue 16 can be pre-ordered via the link in my profile right now & it goes on general sale on Thursday! Eeeek. #rocknrollbridemagazine
