Nothing’s gonna touch you in these Golden Years

So, it’s that time of year again where we reminisce about everything we’ve been up to over the past twelve months (yep you guessed it, this is another “Year in Review” post). Personally, I just love this time of year – although I’m not quite sure why. Perhaps it is the thought of a fresh new slate – new year, new me and all that or maybe it is simply the idea of picking up a fresh new journal with all of the trimmings … I’m leaning  ...

Best of Beauty 2017

Over the past week or so I have admittedly spent quite a lot of time catching up on some of my favourite Youtube channels (whilst finishing off the last of the Christmas Quality Street, of course).  Lately, I have really been enjoying watching everyone’s “Best of Beauty, 2017” roundups, I just love hearing about other people’s holy grail beauty bits. These videos have also prompted me to think a lot about the products that I have used and loved over the past twelve  ...

Christmas Gifting with T2

As sad as I am that Autumn is well and truly over, there is definitely something pretty magical about this time of year. From festive party nights to winter gift-giving, the lead up to Christmas has always been one of my favourite times of the year. However, as the winter weeks pass, frosty car scraping mornings and icy dark evenings seem to become all too familiar. Around this time of year, you will most likely find me wrapped up in a zillion layers and drinking copious amounts of toasty  ...

So long, October

So today is the last day of October? Surely this has got to be some sort of drill? I don’t think I’m quite ready to say goodbye to pumpkins and crispy autumn leaves just yet.

Over the past few weeks I have had so much fun creating new and exciting content for my blog and have quite honestly surprised myself with how much I can achieve when I really make the most of my time.

5 Sunday Rituals to make Mondays less… Monday.

Ahh Monday, we meet again! Like most people, the thought of that dreaded Monday morning alarm can sometimes seem a little bit daunting. Especially when you have a busy week ahead and a million and one things on your to-do list. For me, the past few weeks have been pretty hectic between blogging more regularly, working a few extra hours and seeing to general life admin (oh, and maintaining some sort of social life). However, I am a big believer of the old cliché a Sunday well spent brings a  ...

Blogger Productivity Tips and Tricks

For me, checking all of my to-do list boxes and feeling as though I have achieved a lot in a day has to be one of the best feelings ever. Throughout my time at university, I learned that you can almost always achieve a lot more in a day than you initially expect. The past month has really reinforced this thought for me. As you may have read, throughout September, I was struck by a flu that completely drained me of energy and led me to feel a little demotivated in the old blogging  ...

Detoxing your Wardrobe

Like many people, I would describe myself as a little bit of a hoarder – especially when it comes to clothes. With this in mind, you can only imagine how cluttered my wardrobe can be.  If you are a bit like me, there’s a good chance that there are more than a few pieces lurking in your wardrobe that you haven’t worn since god knows when e.g those disco pants from 2012 (you know the ones). Additionally, you may find that there are also a few pieces in there that no longer  ...

Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Bun Recipe

For me, this month has been about challenging myself and trying out new content. As you may have spotted, last week I published my DIY pumpkin spice recipe post – which was the first of its kind on my blog. Although I thoroughly enjoyed writing and photographing the post, I wasn’t completely sure how appealing this would be to my audience. However, to my absolute delight, it seems that it actually went down pretty well and has quickly become one of my most viewed posts ..ever! Who’d  ...

Autumn / Winter Skincare Saviours

During the winter months with chilly days and cold air, I feel that my skin begins to lack two things – luminosity and hydration. Therefore, as I mentioned in my recent glowing skin post – I tend to switch up my beauty routine accordingly. Over the years I have come to realise that having a good base to work with makes makeup application a breeze. It also makes me feel that bit more confident on non-makeup days too.  As I have just recently switched up my skincare routine, I  ...

Bloggers Guilt and Silver Linings

As you may have spotted on my Instagram or Twitter, over the past few weeks I have been plagued by some sort of demon super flu. I don’t usually get colds or sickness bugs all that often but when I do they seem to come with full force. First came a few days of sickness and fever, then two weeks of sinus headaches and congestion. Three weeks on and I am finally beginning to see the light of this never-ending virus of doom (ok that is a tad dramatic). Anyway, the point I’m trying to make is  ...

The Dreamy Stationery Post

September 2017 marks the first year that I will not be returning to any educational institution. To be honest the thought of this is pretty daunting.

However, there is one particular “back to school” ritual that I  missing the most – stationery shopping. Yep, I have no shame, I am a self-confessed stationary enthusiast / hoarder.  I’m almost  ...

72 Hours in Copenhagen

As you may have spotted from my latest Instagram posts, a fortnight ago myself and my friend Karen headed to the Copenhagen – the land of cinnamon buns and dreamy interiors for a sneaky birthday getaway. Having previously researched the city, I had an inkling that it would be right up my street and what can I say? It more than lived up to my high expectations. From the city’s beautiful scenery and epic food markets to the laid back, super chilled vibe of its residents, it was  ...
