I am so guilty of painting myself orange nearly every day in order to not be as day-glo white that is my natural skin colour. Unfortunately, I’m not yet rich enough to have a constant natural glow from days spent sunbathing at the beach. I only get four weeks holiday a year and many of that is used for necessary odd days here and there. So, it falls on the bottle to make sure I don’t terrify children with my vampire-like skin tone. I did use t...

Taking care of your skin is so important, and yet people still neglect to pay proper attention to the biggest organ of their body. Your face is what you present to the world and some people are fine with the bare minimum that really isn’t giving it the love it needs. I often find that it’s men who neglect their skin the most, citing it as something too girly and unnecessary for them and their testosterone. This is wrong! Guys, you should take ...

The Best Fake Tan to Buy

I am so guilty of painting myself orange nearly every day in order to not be as day-glo white that is my natural skin colour.

How to Train Your Naughty Puppy
Dogs , Lifestyle / 14th February 2018

Both of my dogs were rescues from the kennels near to where I live. They were not puppies when we adopted them, they were full grown dogs and had picked up a lot of bad habits from their previous owners or from lack of discipline. Bear in mind that both of our dogs are bully breeds, we have a Staffordshire Bull Terrier and an American Bulldog and those breeds are known to be big and boisterous dogs. Discipline is essential in raising...

How to Find the Perfect Holiday Package
Lifestyle , Travel / 21st January 2018

Holidays are the thing I look forward to every year. Whether I’m going abroad to an exotic beach, exploring a city, or just getting to know my homeland better, it’s so exciting to get away from work and responsibilities and just relax and enjoy myself. As I don’t get too many holiday days with work, it’s so important that I get the right holiday package and that it is going to be one that I enjoy and that isn’t going to break the ban...

The Cheapest Alcohol with the Best Taste
Lifestyle , Social / 18th December 2017

I am a sucker for cheap alcohol. I am so far from an alcohol snob that I’m perfectly happy to drink Lambrini out of a wine glass and have that be my drink of choice for the entire evening. I always go for the cheapest wine at a restaurant and I always go to bargain shops to look for cheap-brand alternatives to the big names. Trust me, there are a lot of knock offs out there. So I decided to an investigation to find out how different ...

Easy Ways to Save Your Change
Lifestyle , Professional / 15th November 2017

Growing up in a middle class household, I never really stressed too much about money. Sure, I always wanted more and sometimes I would throw a paddy because I couldn’t afford lots of new clothes on my papergirl wage, but on the whole we lived in a nice house, went on regular holidays and I was oblivious to what adult life was going to throw at me. Then, I went to University and personal finance problems ht me like a tonne of br...

Alternative Bonding Activities for the Modern Couple
Dates , Lifestyle / 30th October 2017

Being a millenial is hard, a big part of the shift in attitudes is with regards to relationships. Many people have been turned off monogamy and it’s really starting to affect how our generation is growing up. With that being said, I’m very lucky to have met a partner who is going against the grain of our generation and is very happy with me and just me. We do have to mix things up occasionally though to keep things interesting and we...

Workout Tips for a Girl on the Go
Lifestyle , Social / 6th September 2017

I like to think that I stay pretty healthy. I eat fairly well, workout at the gym as much as possible even though I do still like to have alcoholic drinks moderately regularly. With that being said, I also work full time, take care of a three bedroomed house, a boyfriend and two dogs so sometimes I am a little tired and cannot dedicate as much time as I would like to the gym. BUT, I do still do mini workouts wherever I go because it’...

My Obsession with Candles has Gone too Far
Home , Lifestyle / 9th August 2017

Is there anything better than coming home after a hard day at work, getting into your jammies and curling up with a glass of wine in a cosy home? There really isn’t anything better and I’ve always known that candles are a key factor in making a house feel homely. I’ve always had candles in my room, ever since I moved out of my shared bedroom with my sister and finally got my own space. I’ve moved homes several time since them but one...

Designing My Perfect Dressing Room
Home , Lifestyle / 24th July 2017

I am very lucky at the moment that the house that I live in is very spacious for me, my partner and our two dogs. So spacious in fact, that I have a room that is entirely dedicated to me getting ready. Yes, I have my very own dressing room. For a 23 year old girl, having your own dressing room is the absolute dream. I have all of my clothes laid out exactly how I want to, without them being crushed and all my make-up is ready to go a...

Budgeting to Buy a House
Lifestyle , Professional / 18th June 2017

Being a millenial sucks. Don’t fight me about it. It just does. Job security isn’t a thing any more, relationships don’t exist and don’t even THINK about being as privileged as your parents were at your age. One of the biggest downsides to living in this generation is the total unlikelihood of ever getting on the property ladder. We’re living in generation rent and it is not a good place to be. THe housing market suffered massively i...
