THE STYLE EDITION: WHY 2017 TRENDS ARE FAST BECOMING UNATTAINABLE

The fear of being labelled as a style blogger for me (although admittedly self-titled) is the expectation that comes with that title, the hope that my wardrobe is bursting with brand new, totally trendy, 90% designer threads. Let me tell you something up front, if that is the idealistic wardrobe for a twenty something female, I welcome you to a world of disappointment. This for me is completely unrealistic and I’m sure for some, very much unattainable. I cannot and will not bankrupt myself just to earn my cool girl Instagram stripes. I have always been a lover of affordable style. I think this stems from my…

THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: TURNING 28 AND FEELING GREAT

I remember turning 23 and at the time thinking that was terrifyingly old, five years later and I’m practically a spinster! Joke! (My mum will tell me off for that one). Turning 28 is something I feel like I don’t want to say out loud, it feels like a whole heap of seriousness to me. The idea that I’m ever so nearly out of my twenties fills me with complete dread. I’m in panic mode. I should have got my life together by now, right? Wrong! I’m single, I’ve bunked back at home with my parents and frankly, I don’t know where the heck life is taking…

THE STYLE EDITION: WORKPLACE FAIL SAFES

Looking ‘the part’, so to speak, within the workplace is something that I have never had to give a second thought to. I’m very fortunate that working within a creative role, my look speaks for itself. My self-labelled marmite fluffy Gucci inspired mules, an array of slogan t-shirts (some with obscene language) and garish orange eye-shadow have all made an appearance without a second glance. Everyone just assumes it goes with the territory. Being the ‘social media girl’ means I can rock pretty much whatever I like. Having enjoyed this luxury for almost two years, this is now all about to change. In a few weeks time I…

THE BEAUTY EDITION: GLOSSIER HYPE AND HAUL

Hands up, who’s aboard the Glossier train? No doubt we’ve got a packed out carriage, right? When Glossier announced they were coming to the UK we all freaked. Girls, guys, make-up enthusiasts alike, all patiently awaiting the beauty drop of the year. I don’t know what we were more excited about, slapping the stuff on our faces or our Instagram pages. From product to packaging, the brand is a total bloggers dream. Rightly so, I’ve seen tonnes of pics all over social media. Safe to say it’s been a Glossier haul galore. Naturally, it only felt right to throw in my two pence. I made a small…

THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: WHO TO DATE WHEN YOU’RE NOT DATING

Here is an opening line you probably didn’t expect; I go on dates ALL the time. Now, before you go and get all judgmental on me, I’m not talking in the romantic sense, those ones don’t happen for me all that often. Admitting to this in a recent conversation made me realise that dating isn’t just for those who fancy the pants off of each other. This all stemmed from an Instagram poll I saw believe it or not. A guy asked his followers if they would give a date a second chance after they vomited post drinks on the first one (side note: what people put…
