Holiday time!

Hello everyone and happy Friday! I’m off on holiday now until the 8th so there will be no posts during this time. I did try to schedule some for when I was away, however life got in the way and I didn’t manage anything worthy of publishing. Thanks to all of you lovely readers and…

ASOS Autumn Wishin’

I know we’ve barely had a summer, but I can’t lie, I cannot wait to say goodbye to smooth, tanned leg anxieties & humidity giving me volume not even John Freda wants. The reunion with my baggy jumpers, jeans and boots will be something out of a love story, and as we prep for the dark…

Desigual Launch Their New Fragrance range: Have Sex, Fun or Love Every Day

Desigual are best known as a worldwide fashion brand, but they’ve recently launched a new fragrance range which mirrors their fun, vibrant ethos. I was lucky enough to receive a sample from their range, the “Love” fragrance, and I haven’t touched my other perfumes since! The fragrance itself is absolutely perfect for summer. It’s light and…

Tumblr Tuesdays

My teenage years seemed to be spent either trying to be older than I was, or endlessly scrolling through Tumblr in a blanket on teen angst. I recently re discovered my little adolescent dashboard of reposts, and selected my firm favourites that I still love today. I will definitely be using Tumblr more regularly again…

What the fuck is up with Social Anxiety?

It’s so very difficult to write about social anxiety without alleviating the seriousness of the condition, yet when thinking back on my own incalculable experiences of freezing up in public due to unexpected questions/conversation,  perhaps at times, laughing about it, is the best medicine. A personal anecdote you’re free to laugh at… Sitting a family meal, having spent a…

Contouring: The Craze I’m Just Not Feeling

The world seems to have gone contouring mad. Direct contouring. Lip contouring. Boob contouring. Even Bloody CLOWN CONTOURING! What on earth is going on? Anything promoted by Kim Kardashian (in my eyes) should be vastly ignored, but it seems every day, women are literally following in her footsteps, and painting their faces on. I’m not so naive that I…

Book Review: Jodi Picoult – Leaving Time

I’m not someone who takes a month to read a book, whether it’s good or bad. But when I find a good book, I know because I am unable to have a spare two minutes when something’s in the microwave, without picking the book up again and losing myself yet again in a few more…

OOTD: Easy Boho Vibes

“Bohemianism is the practice of an unconventional lifestyle, often in the company of like-minded people, with few permanent ties, involving musical, artistic, or literary pursuits. In this context, Bohemians may be wanderers, adventurers, or vagabonds.” Thanks to good old Wikipedia, we see the Bohemian lifestyle to be something to be admired and desired, and your clothes…

Sale Picks: The best of the Summer Sales

Hello hello hello! Mid week = sadness that it’s not the weekend yet. Mid week thus = Shopping! I’m sure you deserve a treat, so I’ve popped together my favourite crackers from the current summer sales. Sod having to trawl through to find the best bits on offer, I’ve done it for you! Did I…

Foodies Festival Clapham Common

Myself and a friend braved the British Summer time weather (also known as grey skies and pissing it down,) to visit the Foodies Festival over at Clapham Common on 26th July. Despite the unrelenting rain, I’m so happy we went, and you won’t be disappointed if you get some tickets for next year. The foodie…

The basic rules of hair care

On a daily scroll of Instagram and Twitter, we’re introduced to dozens of new “must have” hair care products, but many of us are neglecting the basics. My mum taught me good hair practices, than mean despite lacking the motivation to spend hours on my hair every day, it maintains healthy and strong, without much…

A Lazy Girls guide to wavy hair

I love a short cut. If there’s something I can do the night before that means I can wake up 10 minutes later- I’ll do it. When it comes to my hair, if it takes longer than 15 minutes, I’d rather go looking like a homeless person. It’s an hour task just for me to…
