My April Goals | April 21

This year, I’ve found it helpful to set myself goals at the start of each month to keep myself on track rather than big resolutions. I find it easier to break things into chunks, with shorter periods. The weather is getting warmer, things are looking up but the turn of 2020 into 2021 feels like […]

Spring Home Decor Pieces Under £35

We’ve all been spending much more time in our home spaces in the last twelve months but the same scene day in, day out can get a bit repetitive, plus since I’ve not been accessorising my wardrobe, I’ve been focusing on on accessorising my space with the seasons. I like a neutral, grey palette where […]

Bondi Sands Pure Review | March 21

I mentioned in my buying beauty products online post about my love of Influenster and their VoxBox campaigns where you can test products in exchange for posting a review. I was selected for the Bondi Sands Pure collection VoxBox campaign and was sent the three products in the range to try. Just to disclaim, it’s […]

What I’ve Been Watching on Netflix | March 21

Since the country has been grounded for the third time, ‘what have you been watching?’ seems to come up in conversation with the limited human interaction we are allowed. Whether you’re bored, need to unwind or just escape for a while, it’s hard to imagine a world when Netflix wasn’t a thing. Bridgerton I finally […]

How To Save Money | March 21

With many people spending less in the last twelve months due to lack of a social life, commute or just skipping those mid-morning coffee runs, we should all have saved a fortune, right? Some people have been squirrling away their extra cash at the end of the month, other’s financial wellbeing, or priorities have changed […]

Ultimate Spring Lockdown Bralettes | March 21

In lockdown 3.0, we’ve gone for comfort. My days now consist of cosy loungewear and don’t think I could tell you the last time I wore a proper underwired bra. I’m all in favour of a bralette, which have come a long way since their introduction. What used to be reserved for smaller chested ladies, […]

Everyday Facial SPF | February 21

The sun came out this weekend, you could’ve taken your jacket off from the first time since September and it was a welcome reminder for all that brighter days are coming – hopefully figuratively and literally. If you’re in to skincare and frequently use acid products, you may be familiar with pink face that comes […]

What I’ve Been Watching on Netflix | February 21

Since the country has been grounded for the third time, ‘what have you been watching?’ seems to come up in conversation with the limited human interaction we are allowed. Whether you’re bored, need to unwind or just escape for a while, it’s hard to imagine a world when Netflix wasn’t a thing. Last month I […]

Is Online Dating The Answer?

I was about eighteen when I first heard of Tinder. At a work night out, one of the older girls showed us this new app where you could match with men/women in your area, that were Facebook friends’ of friends. I didn’t view it as online dating. At that time, I viewed online dating for […]

My Work From Home Routine | February 21

Working from home is my new normal, for the foreseeable and I mentioned in my post Let’s Talk About… Working From Home that I don’t think we’ll ever go back to a five day working week in the office. I went from no working from home, to blended working from home, to fully working from […]

Product Empties | January 21

Philosophy Pure Grace Fragrance This light floral scent smells so fresh, modern and clean, like stepping fresh out of the shower but with a distinctive note of leafy greens. It’s incredibly distinctive and luxurious. It’s not too overbearing so is a perfect summer or workwear fragrance. I equally love it on a crisp winter morning. […]

Buying Beauty Products Online

There’s not much I won’t buy online. From clothes, shoes, bags, jewellery, homeware, furniture, you name it. I don’t have the same anxiety about ‘seeing it’ in real life that others have, until it comes to beauty products. Foundations, lipsticks, even eye shadow palettes cause me so much stress when I need to buy them […]

What I’ve Been Watching on Netflix | January 2020

Rather than ‘what have you been up to?’ I’m now asking, ‘What have you been watching?’ With not much to do other than watch TV on cold and snowy evenings, I’m not the only one who’s been watching more Netflix than previously. I sometimes struggle to find things to watch, so find posts like this […]
