As I’ve gotten older, I can’t help but notice that dieting, get slim fast pills and workout DVDs are a hot topic amongst adults. Slimming World has become one of the most popular dieting programmes and getting into that size 10 dress seems to be an addiction. But, for me, I can’t get my head around it: Why all the fuss on weight loss? Read more
Okay, let’s be honest. I’ve never talked about sex on this blog. It’s a topic I’ve deliberately steered away from. But recently I saw a pretty great blogger talking about why women shouldn’t be afraid to talk about sex, which really resonated with me.
iPhone “culture” is probably the wrong phrasing here, but I couldn’t come up with another name and frankly, it just feels right to say. But, I’ve been noticing it quite a lot lately and bloggers have even began a conversation on it: The SLR, flatlay, overly planned instagram format we had going on for a while, has started to lose us engagement, and has thus returned the iPhone feed.

You’ve known me now for two years, you’ve never seen me get all dolled up and you’re probably used to my “tomboy” (ugh), style. To me, it’s normal, but after searching around the internet this morning for inspiration for a blog post, I saw the phrase used on quite a popular underground magazine website, “Dressing down is the new dressing up,” what do I make of this you ask?

I recently had my hair toned Grey (it’s actually more purple though which I loove), for the third time, and I went out straight after to get some shopping done. When I was in one shop, the sales assistant asked me how I got to it. “I just bleached and toned it. I go blonde first and then tone it grey.” Her face said it all: Pure annoyance. Read more
Ever since I started to become myself, you know, the pre-teen years where you start to discover who you may or may not turn out to be for the rest of your life, music played a massive part in how I dressed and felt. I’m not ashamed to admit my music taste hasn’t really changed and that it still affects my look.
I have spoken before about how much I love dogs, I have had two dogs throughout my lifetime and it’s true what they say: They really do become part of the family. However, it’s become a bit of a social trend to be obsessed with these furry companions. Over Christmas, charities and vets warn you not to buy or adopt a dog just for Christmas, because shelters become over populated and it’s just frankly sad on the poor pooches. Same goes for any pet really. So here’s a few things to consider before jumping in and buying a dog. Read more
This is actually a question that has been quite on the front of my mind lately, does my appearance match up to the things that I like? I realised after letting it get to me a bit that it’s actually quite a childish thought I was having, so writing it out is where I’m at. Read more
The transition from Summer to Autumn is always fun, throughout September you start to get into Autumn and introduce your Autumn routine back into your life. Warmer clothes, a different skin routine and some fun makeup looks are some “perks” of Autumn. It’s been a really long time since I wrote up a monthly favourites, I realised my routine for the most part was staying the same and I was using a lot of the same things throughout the months, so now that I’ve left it a bit I now actually have acquired quite a few “new” favourites this month.
