What I have packed for Paris

Packing in general has never been my favourite thing to do, it’s the effort of sorting out what you need and what you want to take. Then there is everything from the washing, ironing and folding of clothes, to buying those tiny bottles to transfer shampoo and conditioner into. However over the years I have…

Summer makeup with only five products

Personally, summer is the best of times, I love the heat, a summer wardrobe, lighter evenings and all the cider sipping-in-the-sun which comes with it! So with the all the amazing things to do in the summer, a face full of makeup is the last thing you want to be worrying about. It is okay:…

What I Ate Today: Work edition

It’s that time, for the first time, in a long time, when I share everything I eat in a day. Of course, this varies from day to day, but usually, I don’t stray too far from what I know… Breakfast ‘The most important meal of the day’, we have all heard that before once twice or a…

Today’s Wardrobe: A summer’s evening

Who doesn’t like to get dressed up and go out for dinner, its one of those things which can make you feel a little bit more special, especially if you have a new frock to go with it. This one from Zara (found here); which is currently in the sale (which I am not annoyed about at…

Today’s Wardrobe: Sunshine and florals

What is going on with this weather; England having an actual summer: madness. I’m not complaining though, I was made for this heat. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ So today was my first day off work in eight days, meaning I can finally enjoy the tropical weather the UK is serving, so…

7 faves: June

Long time, no blog is a bit of an understatement at this point; it has been a combination of not having any ideas on what to blog about and lack of time. I am back home for the summer and working pretty much most days as a waitress to try and rake in the money…

6 items to elevate your wardrobe

Fashion trends come and go, last year we saw the 90’s make a huge return in the form of mom jeans and bumbags, this year – the 70’s is all the rave with flared sleeves and bold patterns. However, it is easy to get lost in the fashion world we live in, where ever decade…

My go-to natural make up

I wish I could say I have people banging down my door for my opinion about anything makeup related but sadly I don’t. Don’t get me wrong, I love makeup like the next girl or guy who has 20 lipstick shades of a lipstick but each one is ‘a different shade’. But I have always…

Sticky toffee pudding: a British classic ‘veganised’

Before anyone jumps at me, I am fully aware that ‘veganised’ is not a word in the English dictionary. However it won’t be long before it shall be, we can ‘veganise’ anything: from our decaf-no foam- almond milk latte’s to our desserts (apparently), such as this British classic. I’m not a vegan myself but I…

Walks in Leek

Yesterday myself and two of my coursemates/ best mates decided to venture out of our Uni bubble and take a walk near-by in Leek, Stafford. It started a really lovely day; the sun was shining and in the Midlands, it’s quite a rarity as it is usually raining, but naturally, the sun decided three hours…
