Sunday #6 Flatlay Inspiration.

Sunday, 8 January 2017
Black & White // Monochrome Pinterest Board
In my previous post I mentioned how I want to really work on my photography and get to know my camera a little better. I don't want to post just because I have too, I want to post because I love the content I have created. I thought it would be a good idea to put a moodboard together of flatlays and shots that I love. It's a post that I will be able to come back to for fresh ideas and hopefully it will inspire you too! 

I have linked a few of my Pinterest boards too, there is more inspiration over there!

What site gives you the most inspiration?

What's Next On PRK?

Wednesday, 4 January 2017

Happy New Year Guys!! I hope you had a magical time! I spent mine curled up in front of the TV watching Jools Holland's count down with a Southern Comfort and lemonade, mmm. Now I read that sentence back I realise that I sound like an old lady don't I? Haha! I didn't really feel like doing much as I was working over new years. But anyways lets get on with the post shall we? Todays post isn't a 'goals post' (I bloody hate the term goals) or any of that jazz, its just simply a round up/whats coming up on prk.

So, the first thing I want to talk about is my schedule. I am planning on posting every Sunday and Wednesday. I say planning because lets be honest it is probably going to change! I find it hard to take good pictures with this rubbish weather and I have to find the time to blog around my work schedule. So for now, Sundays and Wednesdays it is!

Speaking of pictures, I am really going to try my best with my photography. I got my Canon 700D months ago and I have never really learned how to use it to its upmost potential. I want to work on my flay lays too, and purchase some new props (any excuse for shopping, eh?). I feel like I have kind of found my style a little more recently, I am not completely there yet but I am slowly on my way. 

As for content, I am going to carry on with my '3...' blog series. They are one of my fave posts to work on.  
(3...Basics. 3...Favourites. 3...Songs.)
I am going to carry on with the Sunday mood boards, testing cheaper make up alternatives & finding fashion dupes too. 

I am also going to add a new kind of post to my blog. I am thinking of calling it, 'One Thing A Month:' Or maybe just using the month as the title like this 'January:' then whatever I have done that month. 
I basically want to do/try/experience something different each month and document it here, on poppyrkay. I am trying to experience new things and I feel like setting myself up with the idea of having to post one thing I have done each month will give me the motivation to actually do it. It sounds sad I know but whatevs. I have something planned for February already which is reallllly exciting so keep ya little eyes peeled! Oh, and if you can think of any better names for the blog post idea, please help a girl out!

Oh and my little old young blog is 2 in March, woo! I feel like there is only one way to celebrate it and that is with a giveaway. I did one last year for the 1st birthday too!

Thats all for today kids. I hope you have an amazing year and I hope to see you around here a lot more!

A Lush Haul! (What I Got For Christmas)!

Thursday, 29 December 2016
In todays post I wanted to share the Lush products I got for Christmas. They are either bath bombs or bubbles bars, my two fave products from Lush. 
So, lets start with the Happy Daze gift set. This gift contains:
From left to right (Image & descriptions from Lush)
 The Experimenter bath bomb, an enigmatic and comforting romance of... deep, complex vetivers notes that enthral your senses before creamy vanilla and tonka provide a sweet antidote. It has popping candy in it too, yaaas!

Fizbanger bath bomb, releasing first a citrussy apple and then a cinnamon, apple pie like scent with a hint of ylang ylang. Petitgrain is used in aromatherapy to calm the breathing, slow the heartbeat and reduce feelings of anxiety. Yang ylang produces a feeling of joy, and cinnamon leaf oil helps you let go.

Bright side bubble bar, an uplifting bubble bar containing Sicilian mandarin, bergamot and tangerine essential oils to help you look on the bright side of life!

The Comforter bubble bar, which is my favourite bubble bar (I've mentioned it here & here). This contains cassis absolute which gives a distinctive blackcurrant fragrance, while bergamot adds an uplifting note.

I've had all of these product before, apart from The Experimenter. I always look at it in store but for some reason I just never pick it up! I am glad to have it now though and I can't wait to give it a try!

I also received a Santa printed scarf filled with smelly treats from my sister. She picked them all her self (with a little help from the Lush staff, haha)! I think its a lovely idea, it really makes the gift feel personal. This contained:

Stardust bath bomb which contains vanilla, rosewood and bergamot expertly blended to give it an intoxicating scent even before it hits the water.

Butter Bear bath bomb which is moulded into a friendly bear which has a generous helping of cocoa butter to give you the softest bear hug imaginable.

Pumpkin bath bomb, which is Halloween product (well done sissy, you obviously didn't leave your Christmas shopping till last minute haha). I've had this before and all you need to know is that it is amazing! It smells super warming and wintery.

Northern Lights, which again is a seasonal product I think. In the product description its says, cheery slang ylang bobs and weaves with sensual jasmine in the air to light up your spirits, it soundslovely!

And finally to finish off this Lush haul, Candy Mountain bubble bar! Lush's description of the product says this lustrous pink bubbler will send your mood into the stratosphere with its sweet vanilla perfume. 

I have got a lot of products to get through, I think I'll either start with The Experimenter or Northern Lights. I haven't used either of these before so I am excited to see what they are like!

I couldn't find all of the products online so some are linked to the UK website, and others are linked to the US website. I thought I'd still link them, just so you can see what they look if you wanted to go and purchase them in store.

I hope you liked this slightly longer post, sorry if it was toooo long!

Anyway, what is your favourite Lush bath bomb?

A Peaceful Nights Sleep.

Thursday, 22 December 2016

A few days ago I ventured to TK Maxx to pick up a few last minute Christmas presents. Somehow I ended up on the beauty aisle (I lie, I headed there first, haha!). I feel like TK Maxx is hit or miss with their beauty products, most of them are out of their packaging or smashed up. I did find this pillow spray though, and it was in perfect condition, win!

Organik Botanik Australia's Breathe Easy Pillow Spray promises a fragrant night sleep. When I first tested this product I could definitely see why, the smell of eucalyptus and aloe vera is so calming. I have tried this spray a few times now, I don't feel like it has helped me sleep better, but it deffo makes getting into bed a whole lot nicer. I feel like it would be great to use after a busy day of Christmas festivities, we all know we are knackered by the end of the jolly season. 

I do want to buy and compare a few more pillow sprays here on prk, just to see if they really do work. The This Works Pillow Spray looks interest, I've heard loaaaads about it!

Also, I did try to link the product but I couldn't find a site for it. If you head to TK Maxx I am sure you will be able to find a few knocking around though. I got it from the beauty aisle for around £3.99, which is a bargain, right?!

Have you ever tried pillow sprays?
