ARE WE SOCIAL MEDIA “OUTRAGED”?

ARE WE SOCIAL MEDIA “OUTRAGED”?

Just lately I’ve found myself tweeting less and posting to my stories on the ‘gram less too. I’m feeling less inspired and spending more time watching Netflix originals in my pyjamas than actually spending time working. I’ve also completely locked out my Facebook so you can’t find me and even though I’ve never used my surname on my blog or my Instagram, if you look hard enough you’ll find it. I…

THE NEW FASHION RULES I’LL BE FOLLOWING IN 2019

THE NEW FASHION RULES I’LL BE FOLLOWING IN 2019

Last year I wrote a blog post talking about what 2018 taught me about dressing, and although I learned to embrace new styles, mix and match and slap a lot of colour into my wardrobe, in hindsight, there are only three or four outfits that spring to mind that I loved in 2018 – and all of them conformed to a few rules that I’d actually been intentionally not following. So, when I thought…

MY 5 BLOGGING GOALS OF 2019

MY 5 BLOGGING GOALS OF 2019

January 1st is almost like hitting RESET and refreshing – we all have a sense of starting over, making changes and making a start on new beginnings. For me, these feelings have been more focused towards my blog this year, I realised last year that planning my personal life just didn’t work because you just don’t know what’s going to happen in the world, but with my blog, at least…

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…

MAKEUP I GENUINELY LOVE

MAKEUP I GENUINELY LOVE

This year has been the year of loving makeup and trying new things, for me anyway. Last year I was opting for a very basic eyeliner-only look, but this year I’ve spent the past twelve months trying new products, trying new looks and improving my makeup skills. I’ve found products that I genuinely love and I’ve found products that I genuinely hate – but all that aside, here’s what I loved this…

THE LAST MINUTE GIFT GUIDE FOR YOUR NIECE

THE LAST MINUTE GIFT GUIDE FOR YOUR NIECE

To be honest, this year I’ve spent a lot of money on Christmas presents, and most of that has gone towards my little niece. I’ve found shopping for her to be insanely easy, because everywhere you go, there’s things for babies that you know they will love. My niece is one and a half years old and she’s in the stage of her life where she loves sounds, colours, music and anything…

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…
