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 ...

Date Night Essentials
Dates , Lifestyle / 13th May 2017

Date night is different for everyone. The essentials for each couples date night will obviously vary slightly, but it all depends on what you will be doing and the person that you’re with. My date night essentials are perfect for me, and I like to think that I’ve perfected what I need to be taking around and about when me and my man hit the town for some quality time.bonding together. What to Wear As I’m sure we’re all aware now as m...

The Path to Success Isn’t Always Smooth
Lifestyle , Professional / 1st April 2017

I’ve had my fair share of ups and downs career wise. I guess it’s because I never truly knew what I wanted to do with my life, I had some whims and fancies along the way but there was never truly anything that I felt I was destined to do. For example, my sister is super creative and was always the artistic one of the family, but she’s also super smart. It just made sense that she would end up doing something artsy but requiring a log...

Adopting A Rescue Dog
Dogs , Lifestyle / 26th March 2017

I have always wanted a dog. Every birthday and every Christmas, I would sneak ‘puppy’ onto my list in the vain hope that my parents would have magically changed their mind about their strict no dogs rule. We had a couple of cats for a little while, rodents were a common pet for a bit and I was permitted to have a snake and a lizard, but dogs were always out of the question. When I moved to Liverpool for university, I promised myself ...

Why I Will Always Choose Air BnB Over Hotels
Lifestyle , Travel / 4th February 2017

It’s no secret that travelling is becoming more and more expensive for services and accommodation that are sub-par. In the past few years, I’ve been charged ridiculous amounts of money for low-rated and low-ranked hotels that have just been an overall disappointment. Air BnB isn’t a new phenomenon, in fact the company has been a thing since 2008 and has grown an incredible amount over the decade it’s been in operation. The idea was f...

Travelling in Europe – The Best Bits
Lifestyle , Travel / 21st January 2017

As a native European, I have a lot of love for the diverse and colourful continent. Brexit aside, the countries that we share this bond with are beautiful and easily accessible (for now). I’m lucky enough to have travelled a fair bit in Europe throughout the years. The close proximity means that I’m never really too far from discovering a whole new culture. Some trips can take less than an hour and have been some of my favourit...

Finding The Right Skincare Routine for You
Cosmetics , Lifestyle / 11th December 2016

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.

Staple Bags You Need in Your Wardrobe
Lifestyle , Social / 19th November 2016

Us girls know that no outfit is complete until we had a little bag to hold all of our essentials. Unlike men, we don’t get the luxury of super deep pockets in all of our jeans, our dresses and skirts don’t seem to think we need to carry things and don’t get me started on the ridiculous size of jacket pockets in women’s jackets. And so, we need bags. I’m really not complaining though, I love a good bag and it really can help to finish...
