Photo diary | York.

York, United Kingdom.
York - Elizabeth Anne

Warning! Photo-heavy. Please allow time for photos to load.

Last weekend I visited the historical and beautiful city of York where I spent the day sight-seeing, visiting the wonderful attractions, tasting local produce and immersing myself in the colourful history of York. York is rich in history, full of charming cobbled streets, exquisite architecture, an array of local attractions including historical buildings, museums, tours and so much more. The city offers so much, it's hardly surprising to see why its such a popular destination and the perfect break for families, couples, and groups alike. The Romans knew York as Eboracum. To the Saxons it was Eoforwick and the Viking invaders called it Jorvik. The city is bursting with character including the marvellous medieval architecture, glorious Georgian town houses and the handsome Victorian railway.

Photo diary | My 27th birthday!

Kniveton, Derbyshire.
Birthday Elizabeth Anne
I cannot believe I am the grand age of twenty-seven and yet I still feel like my sixteen year old self inside however, I take solace in the fact I am always mistaken for being twenty (the best time has to be awarded to the gentleman who thought I was eighteen and told me to buy the young-persons train fair) or being ID'd; even when purchasing a lottery ticket or a scratch card! For my birthday I had a surprise weekend booked in beautiful York. I loved exploring the little streets, getting lost in the array of shops and cafes, watching the world go by and stopping by for tea and cake. The whole weekend was perfect. I shall be writing a separate blog post about my time in York and share some beautiful photos I managed to take.

Rufford Abbey Country Park.
Rufford Abbey Country Park - Elizabeth Anne
Spring is my favourite time of the year. A hive of activity; flowers bursting into bloom, wildlife emerging and undertaking preparations and warmer, sunnier days. One of my favourite poets John Clare sums up Spring in his sonnet; On a Lane in Spring:

Review | Rimmel London - Brow This Way (Brow Shake Filling Powder).

Ashbourne, Derbyshire.

Rimmel London Brow Shake Filling Powder - Elizabeth Anne

Rimmel London - Brow This Way (Brow Shake Filling Powder) £5.99* (Link).


A new launch from Rimmel London from their Brow This Way collection, Brow Shake Filling Powder lands in stores and online. The 3 in 1 soft powder promises to shape, define and line brows. I remember a time where filling in my brows was a menial task consisting of adding a few strokes of a brow pencil or powder and combing through with a spoolie. Today, there are brow bars and products galore dedicated to those two, expression-giving features on our face. This new collection ensures our brows are groomed to perfection.

I wanted to share blogging tools and resources that I use regularly and thought it may be useful to other bloggers. Most of the tools and resources are free but some will require a purchase ( I have tried to keep this to a minimum). I hope this will be useful.
