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…

THE STYLE EDITION: DRESSING FOR YOUR MOOD

Warning *expect moodiness* Lads, I suggest you steer clear of this post. A little warning, it’s cranky AF. All thanks to a girls best frenemy, Mother Nature, I woke up this weekend just passed feeling like utter shit. I was tired, all-round moody, spotty, feeling like I wanted to cry at every given moment and best of all, much to my personal trainers despair, I was craving chocolate cake for breakfast. Dressing for your mood is one of the most important things to get right, it’s a fast forward to starting your day on the right side of the bed. Getting it wrong is not an option. Feeling…

THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: SOCIAL SOCIETY HOME TRUTHS

A couple of months back I was heading back home on a train journey from London where disaster struck; my phone had died. Furiously searching for my portable battery pack, I discovered this had lost all juice too. Frankly, I was stuffed. In a society of digital hysteria, what on earth would I do for the next forty minutes of my journey? No emails, no Spotify and even more horrifying, no Instagram. Fuck! I actually started to feel a little uneasy. With seats full of people, eyes down, headphones on, I preceded to awkwardly stare out of the window in an attempt to feel less outta place…

THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: TATTOO Q&A

Post summer I’m always refreshed and reminded that I’ve got a load of ‘ink’ (I hate this word) slapped across my legs. I had my first tattoo at sixteen, a whole eleven years on you can imagine I barely clock them anymore, they’re very much part of the furniture. They’re big, bright and bold so I understand why they create a fair amount of attention, sadly not just from fellow tattoo admirers. So many times have I had the oh so original line of ‘oi, nice tatts babe’ shouted at me from across the street, usually from a dodgy building site on the corner. I always politely…
