Considering I usually have at least two Apple products with me at any given point, I burn through their batteries at a rather alarming rate. I’m not sure if I read a whole lot of magazines, or whether I’m on instagram too much, but my batteries usually hover somewhere at around 15% before conking out. So, for the past little while I’ve been on the hunt for a portable charger which isn’t too bulky and looks cute.
www.usbmakers.com has come to my rescue though, with their completely customisable chargers. All you have to do is select the type of charger you’re after (I picked the Card Power Bank) and then upload whichever image you want to decorate it. I’ve been on a bit of a marble binge at the moment, so I thought it would look cute on the charger. I made my image over at Polyvore.com, but they would look equally adorable covered in photos or even just a simple pattern.
I absolutely love how simple the charger is, and I cannot tell you how useful it is! Each of the Card Power Banks has over 500 charges, and thanks to how streamline the power bank is, I’ve just been slipping it into my handbag whenever I’m out and about. It’s a complete lifesaver! At night, you just plug the charger into your laptop’s USB for an hour or so, and you’re good to go!

There are an absolute tonne of reasons that anyone would love to live in London. The art galleries, the shopping, the theatre.. But now there’s a rather more high tech benefit of living in the big smoke – The Glam App has launched!
Basically, the Glam App is just about the handiest app you can download – with a couple of taps, it lets you order a whole range of beauty treatments performed by experienced and vetted artists, right in the comfort of your own home. Everything from a simple mani/pedi to a full makeup session is available to book, and since you’re ordering the service through the app, you don’t need to worry about who is going to be working their magic!
London is the first UK city to launch the app (my friends in New York are already regular users) and it was developed by actress and blogger Cara Santana, and celebrity hair and make-up artist Joey Maalouf in Los Angeles in February 2015, and it’s already available in 13 cities across the US and London!
I can’t wait until the next time I’m down south so I can order a couple of treatments – a blow out and my nails done at home sounds pretty much like heaven!

I updated my phone about a month ago (from iPhone 4 to 5S) and wanted to find a cover which was both pretty and practical.
If you find that your agendas are empty on Wednesday 18th September, I would high-tail it your nearest Space NK and buy a ticket for their Autumn Beauty Event. Entry is £15, but is redeemable, and if you splash out £150 or more at the event you will be presented with one of the most luxurious goody bags out there. Filled to the brim with £260 worth of niceties, this is worth the trip!
