Lets talk about Goals, baby.

As with a lot of things in life from fitness levels to career advancement, I believe that goal setting is extremely important. I really feel that it is crucial to have a plan – or at least a rough outline of what you would like to achieve and exactly how you will go about this. I am a bit of a Monica Geller, can you tell? Personally, I find that setting goals really motivates me to work that little bit harder and challenge myself. I also find that setting targets and goals can be a  ...

My Personal Style Journey – An Update

As a huge fashion lover, I love reading pretty much anything style related from outfit of the day blog posts to articles on seasonal trends and high street fashion finds. However, over the past few years, I have become increasingly intrigued by the idea of personal style and how it can be defined. Since my teens, I have always had a rough idea of the general vibe I like to go for. However reading “The Curated Closet” by the wonderful Anuschka Rees has really helped me to define  ...

My Glastonbury Experience 2017 – Review and Photo Diary

Glastonbury Photo Diary 2017 So, last weekend I made my way to Worthy Farm to tick off my top bucket list festival – Glastonbury. As you may have read in my most recent post, I am a huge music lover and have dreamed of attending this legendary event for years. From a young age I have watched the highlights on T.V, read all the music press headlines and felt the fomo (big time) as festival goers shared their snaps online. However, on the 22nd of June 2017, my awesome friend Lottie and  ...

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  ...

Winter Lips with ColourPop Cosmetics

Now that Colour Pop are officially shipping to the UK (yayy) I thought that it was about time to place a little order and see what all the hype is about. Although international shipping is relatively new to the site, I did place a small order via a US postage company around this time last year which consisted of a few Lippie Stix, a cream highlighter and a few single eyeshadows. I was mega impressed by the overall quality of the products and so since the release of their popular liquid  ...

The FOMO is Real

    This is something which has been on my  mind recently and quite frankly has been getting me a little down . This month marks two years since the best summer of my life.

On June 4th 2014 I boarded the plane to New York on my first solo trip, to be introduced to 50 new people who I would  ...

The Magic of Unplanned Travel

When it comes to travel planning  I’m usually the first to get my Insta- stalking  game on in hope of finding the coolest “must see”,  alternative places to hang out. However, whilst on my last few trips I decided to mix things up a bit and just wing it. As a planning geek this initially seemed quite daunting, however deciding to just “go with the flow” has opened my eyes to a new kind of travel. I was reminded of the joys of unplanned travel a few weeks ago  ...
