THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: SUMMER WIND DOWN

BBQ’s, seaside spots, flirty skirts and laugh out loud moments, as we reach September, summer as it does, has simply flown by. I have to confess my summer was fairly tame compared to previous years. Maybe I’m getting boring? Maybe I’m just not eighteen anymore. Who am I kidding… there’s some stories banked to spill, no doubt saved for a white wine fuelled post (as per). Summer, whether that be chilled down or dialled up just feels so great, doesn’t it? The brighter mornings and lighter evenings, your mind-set and routine changes from the way you dress to the music you listen to. Weekends feel full, hazy and without…

THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: DIGITAL DETOX

‘DISCONNECT TO RECONNECT’ I never thought I’d be saying this, especially as a full-time social media executive slash side kick blogger but I’ve been feeling so numb to social media lately. Do you ever just scroll for the sake of scrolling? After a few quick and snappy reassuring ‘babe, you can do this’ exchanges over Whatsapp with my blogging bestie, I decided to cut the cord. Fuck it, I’m embarking on a digital detox. A week in and I’ve come off Facebook, Twitter and the toughest one of the lot; Instagram. Naturally, there are so many reasons why I love social media but I have to say more recently so, there are many more…

THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: LIFE BEHIND THE FILTERS

Two glasses of wine down and I’m reaching for the laptop. This could end in disaster, an entire blog post filled with words, all in no particular order that make no particular sense. I’ll try my hardest to portray these thoughts as eloquently (okay fine, expect some mild swearing) and as clearly as possible (expect typo’s also). ‘YOU WERE BORN TO BE REAL, NOT PERFECT’ I’ve been storing up some thoughts lately on the less talked about topic of filtering the fuck out of your life purely for the satisfaction that it comes across as cool on social media. Okay, we’ve gone straight in there haven’t we?…

THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: DOES MODERN DATING ONLY STEM FROM TINDER

The swipes, the super likes, the awkward one liners, the outright pervs, the guys with secret girlfriends, frankly the list goes on. Tinder, for me, is THE most pointless app on the planet. As a female using Tinder, I have to say, you guys have got some balls (not the kind we wanna see in our DM’s for the record). I can’t tell you how many times I’ve rolled my eyes and unmatched just within the first few exchanges of words, mainly for them being dull, rude or honestly, just a bit weird. It’s a cyber Russian roulette of dunno what card you’re gonna get. It’s just one…

THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: NATIONAL SOCIAL MEDIA DAY

I’ve been putting off dedicating a blog post to Instagram for a while now. Mainly in fear of being judged and naturally labelled as ‘self-obsessed’ or anything along those lines and then I simply realised something. A little light bulb moment swayed my decision and that being I DONT GIVE TWO F’s. Plus, with it being #SocialMediaDay it would be rude not to! I bloody love Instagram, even before it became ‘instagram’. There I’d be uploading my crappy little photo’s of my fish and chips or a Sunday morning cup of tea back in the day, days before the title ‘blogger/influencer/instagrammer’ even came along. Then I got…
