A soppy moment | Blog's first birthday


Hello lovelies, hope you're all doing well. As you can probably tell from the title and the pretty picture, my blog is celebrating it's first birthday. (Well belated birthday-26th July) A whole year of blogging, wow. I know for some people, a year is nothing but I feel really proud in what I've managed to achieve in that small space of time. There are 515+ of you from bloglovin' and GFC alone, who have hopefully actually enjoyed reading my ramblings and stuck around, which I think is crazy, considering that is more people than in my school year, so I guess I owe you all a massive thank you:) *huge cyberhug* I really do appreciate every single one of you and as cheesy as it sounds, your lovely comments and emails actually do brighten my day and make me smile like a cheshire cat, so thank you all so much.

With my sentimental cliched but true piece over, I'll move on to some more boring blog bits and pieces; I recently made a facebook page for this blog so if you have a spare thirty seconds, please could you check it out and like talk pretty here? I'm also looking for some more people to do an ad swap with, so if you're interested, email me (talkpretty@hotmail.co.uk). Lastly, I'm thinking of changing the appearance of my blog or just "jazzing it up" a little bit, so if things start to look a bit funny, you know why.

Once again, thank you all so much and I look forward to the future of talk-pretty.com

Review | Nivea Creme

 Nivea Creme - £3.39 via superdrug & boots

Moisturising, love it or loathe it, I personally think it's one of the most important steps in achieving nice skin, yet so many people don't do it. Yes, sometimes it can be a bit of a chore but I honestly dread to think how horrible my skin would look and feel if I didn't moisturise, so I've decide to share the wonders of my favourite moisturiser with you all.

Nivea creme is honestly the best moisturiser I've come across so far, especially for my skin type -dry/normal. Every morning and evening, I literally plaster my face in this stuff and once it has sunk in, I'm left with soft, smooth skin.I also really like this because it doesn't break me out like some moisturisers I've tried. I just love it.

The only downside I can really think of is that the creme itself is quite thick so sometimes it can take a while for it to sink in, which isn't great if you're in a rush, but I don't mind because I usually have a lot of spare time on my hands;D 

I also think it's a fantastic price for it's size, roughly around the £3 mark, depending on where you go, so it's pretty cheap, which is always a bonus. They also come in different sizes, so you can always buy a small pot, just to try it out and then when you hopefully love it as much as I do, you can buy a big 'old pot, which usually lasts me around one or two months.

Overall, I think this is a fantastic moisturiser, especially if you're on a budget, and will probably continue to use it for the rest of the foreseeable future:) What's your favourite moisturiser? Are you a fan of nivea?

Travels | London

Hello lovelies, hope you're all doing well. Yesterday, for the first time in my whole sixteen years, I ventured into London. *insert over-dramatic gasps here* I know, it's disgraceful. However, I have now popped my London cherry and am going to share the experience with you all via very tourist-ey photos, that haven't been shown about a million times over, but I'm going to do it anyway, just to prove how bad-ass I am;D

Lets go...

Hello lovelies, hope you're all doing well. Today is the first of many: the first day of July, my first outfit of the day in months and my first ever outfit of the day outside. Check me out;D Please try to ignore the giant leaf in most of the photos, I tried to avoid it but it insisted on getting it's moment of fame;) I really like this outfit, I actually felt very summery for a change and I can see this skirt becoming one of my favourite pieces. What are some of your favourite pieces to wear?
