THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: FIVE REALISTIC RESOLUTIONS

The clue is in the title! I’m going for realistic resolutions this year. I have said before that I’m a little uneasy when it comes to resolutions, the idea that we should change ourselves doesn’t sit well with me. I prefer the words; grow, develop, progress, learn. I recently made an ode to appreciating small gestures in 2018, which if you haven’t already read then you can do here and it ties in quite nicely with this follow up post. Life is fucking tough sometimes. So, I’m stripping it back for this one, leaving out the usual witty one liners and getting stuck straight into the resolutions,…

THE BEAUTY EDITION: NYE GLOWING SKIN WITH TRINNY LONDON

‘You’re a dirty blonde’. Um, okay? Safe to say when I entered the Trinny London head office after having this shouted at me across the room, I had absolutely no idea what to expect. Reassuringly, it all made sense pretty quickly. Happy to report that no, I was not having abuse thrown my way but I was in the process of having my very own Match2me personal colour profile consultation. Don’t worry, it’s not as confusing as it’s sounds. Trinny London has a simple yet ever so effective concept. Beauty products, tailored to your complexion, all in handy stack pots to bring along wherever your busy schedule takes…

THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: HAS OUR GENERATION KILLED ROMANCE?

This blog post comes from my usual late night Sauvignon Blanc thoughts, a heart to heart if you like, or so it may seem. This post calls for some serious reflection. For me to confidently go full speed ahead into 2018 and tick off what’s left on the list, I think I really need to get a few things off my chest. Those things, being in relation to relationships, or the lack of them in my case! ‘THE ONLY PEOPLE UP AT 3am ARE IN LOVE, LONELY, DRUNK OR ALL THREE’ Give me any topic to talk about and off I go, easily,  but when it comes to talking about…

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…
