A LOOK BACK ON 2017’S CONTENT

31st December 2017

At less than 300 words, this is probably one of the shortest and to the point posts I’ll think I’ll ever write. There’s not an ounce of sarcasm when I say 2017 thank God that’s over. This year has been nothing but drama and to be frank, more often than not, this year has been […]

ON CONFIDENCE, AND A LACK OF

14th December 2017

JACKET: BERSHKA (SIMILAR) | PLAYSUIT: M&S Would you believe me if I said I don’t actually have much confidence? Not many people do. I’ve started writing this post more times than I can count and yet I somehow have always found myself struggling to get what I want to say down… I mean you wouldn’t […]

HOW TO SPEND 72 HOURS IN BRIGHTON

11th December 2017

As much as I love London, and it’s super easy to travel around, find something to do or explore new places to eat, sometimes I just need a little break to escape all the business that is the capital. Brighton is literally the easiest place to do this because one of the perks about living […]

CHECKING IN; GRANGE ST PAUL’S HOTEL, LONDON

10th November 2017

Regardless of my income I totally live for the 5-Star luxury life, and boy does my bank statement reflect that, but you know what sometimes a girl needs to treat herself!  Last month I checked into the Grange St Paul’s Hotel for a spa day, a little treat for surviving without a job for so […]

AJALA SPA, ST PAUL’S

17th October 2017

For some unknown reason, I’m getting less sleep now I’m unemployed than I ever did with a full-time job and a commute 90-minute either side. The truth is I’ve been exhausted recently, and seeing as it was my mum’s birthday last week I decided to book us in for a little spa day at the […]

BUDGETING WHEN YOU’RE NOT SO GOOD WITH MONEY

11th August 2017

Working out how to budget has not been a mentality I’ve been thinking with for the past few years. I love the idea of having money, and hate being broke but there is just one problem – I’m so used to living payslip to payslip. In fact, the idea of needing to budget for a […]

CAN I START AGAIN? MY MID(ISH)-YEAR REVIEW

SIX THINGS I’VE LEARNED AS I’VE GOTTEN OLDER

29th July 2017

Getting older, growing up, adulting… however you prefer to say it it’s all the same. As scary as it can be, especially when you don’t really have a plan, It’s not a bad thing – I like to think that people can be like wine and get better with age; but that only works if […]
