THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: 2018 AND MAKING SMALL GESTURES COUNT

It’s Christmas, the most wonderful time of the year and I’m physically and emotionally knackered. Not quite the blog post full of festive cheer you were more than likely expecting. Ever the realist. Don’t worry, I’m writing this with a glass of fizz in my hand, as appropriate as ever. I’ve always been your ‘live life to the full’ kinda gal, an outgoing, full speed ahead, intense, passionate extrovert. I don’t know how to stop and I don’t know how to say no. I’ve been off work since the 14th December doing all the usual build-up festivities such as shopping, socialising, gatherings, lunches, brunches, you know the…

THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: MY FITNESS JOURNEY

If you asked me a couple of years ago to list my top five interests then fitness would have never made the cut. Not in a million years. It all began for me when I started my London life career almost two years ago. Firstly, the beauty industry makes you look at yourself in ways you never thought imaginable, picking and poking at every little detail. To be completely brutal, it can be a savage industry. I try my hardest not to let it phase me to the point of total despair but being a female and naturally having body woes, it didn’t exactly help. So, as…

THE STYLE EDITION: ANTI-DRESS PARTY SEASON OUTFITS

I’ve never really been a fan of dresses, let alone party dresses. Truthfully, they’re not to my personal taste and not really suited to my body shape. I so desperately envy ms legs eleven who can sport a gorgeous mini dress and of course, why shouldn’t she! I’m not comfortable with labels, the thought that you should be one or the other when it comes to style. For the sake of making this blog post easier, if someone held a fashion gun to my head and forced me to categorise myself, I’d be forced to claim that my style was a mix of indie and edgy, if…

THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: LIVING WITH YOUR PARENTS

‘Um, I live with my parents’ I say softly (so unlike me) with my head down, feeling myself cringe as I tell the guy I really fancy that I currently reside with the mothership. Luckily for me, a ‘me too’ response makes me feel less like a 28yr old big human baby. So there, I said it. I live at home. The truth of the matter is, so many people (older and younger) I know still do live at home. There’s nothing abnormal about it. In the society that we live in, we all know too well how difficult it is to own your own home and…

THE BEAUTY EDITION: CHRISTMAS DAY BEAUTY TRADITIONS

The Christmas Day make-up ritual is something that excites me year after year. The prospect of getting all dolled up simply amplifies my Christmas cheer. A sprinkle of sparkle, a touch of glitz, I welcome this all with open arms. I also salute the pj crew, the ones who take Christmas with a big gulp of chill pill. For me though, I do want to spruce up with my brand new, freshly opened beauty gifts from loved ones (not before a traditional ‘look what I got’ snap for the gram of course). There’s something about a sweet smelling shower on Christmas morning, a cocktail of various shower…
