HAPPY NEW YEAR IT’S TIME TO GET BACK TO WORK

HAPPY NEW YEAR IT’S TIME TO GET BACK TO WORK

So, it’s actually been a week and a bit since the last time I sat down and wrote a post. You probably can’t tell since Blogmas was going up (that I wrote in the midst of a Summer heatwave mind you), but it’s time to get back into the swing of things, put the thousands of wrappers of After Eights in the bin and get back into the swing of…

THE CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS THAT I’M ENCOURAGING YOU TO BREAK

THE CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS THAT I’M ENCOURAGING YOU TO BREAK

Christmas Time is upon us, there’s festive music on the radio, Christmas lights up in the streets and we’ve all got the festive bug. I’ve finished my present buying and now I’m waiting for the big day to arrive! (Also because I’m extremely excited to get a fortnight off from work), but there’s lots of traditions that we’re encouraged to keep up with around this time of the year too.…

LOOKING BACK AT 2018: THE GOOD

LOOKING BACK AT 2018: THE GOOD

2018 was a rollercoaster to say the least, a lot happened whether it was good or bad, I loved this year though. It was the start of many things for me, the year where I finally came out of my shell and found my comfort zone in life and then pushed past it, it was a successful year for my blog and was also the most fun for family events and work…

DOES THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT TRULY DIE AS YOU GET OLDER?

DOES THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT TRULY DIE AS YOU GET OLDER?

As we get older, things change. We’re not as excited about life or as naive as we once were, so this means that yearly traditions such as Christmas lose their sparkle, we don’t seem to get as enthusiastic about Christmas, and it’s more of a countdown to breaking up from work than it is a countdown to actual Christmas day. But is the Christmas spirit truly dead?

HOW TO GET OVER BEING SELF CONSCIOUS WHEN POSING FOR A SELFIE

HOW TO GET OVER BEING SELF CONSCIOUS WHEN POSING FOR A SELFIE

Selfies are everywhere nowadays, we take them on a daily basis whether we’re being serious about it or not, and we see selfies on a day-to-day basis, because that’s just our culture now and it’s what our generation is known for doing – maybe the trend will die out someday but right now it’s hot and we’re all doing it. My mum has actually nicknamed me “The Selfie Queen” because ever since I began…

TREAT YOURSELF THIS CHRISTMAS WITH THESE 5 GIFTS

When I last spoke about treating yourself, it was back in June and not in the context of buying – well this time it is. We get so caught up over Christmas buying gifts for everyone else, that we forget to treat ourselves. Here are five gifts that you can sign To me From me this Christmas.

THE INDEPENDENT BRANDS TO BUY FROM THIS CHRISTMAS

THE INDEPENDENT BRANDS TO BUY FROM THIS CHRISTMAS

The holidays are coming and consumerism is at its peak, we’re all running off to our local shopping centres desperately searching for something to give Mum or the lady in the office that you don’t really talk to that often but you’re just being polite, and opting for cheap candles and a box of choccies. Well, why not spruce up your gifts a bit this year? Why not get something…

TWENTY ONE

TWENTY ONE

Today is my twenty-first birthday, I actually don’t feel much different to how I was feeling last year, but also this time last year I was staying in a cosy AirBnB right in central Lisbon with my boyfriend and I’d flown in the day before so I was probably feeling a little bit more euphoric. Truth be told, lately I’ve been feeling a little worried about getting older. Not in the sense…
