From microbladed eyebrows, to fake lashes and acrylics, to lip fillers - I feel there's very much a "look" for many influencers nowadays, which has definitely affected my mental health. And then there’s the comparisons of success and the isolation…
As someone with a Westie (shout out to my boy Dexter!!), I'm a big fan of Radley bags... My mum and I even have matching Radley passport holders - the quality is always great for the price point and who can resist a cute little dog logo? Find out all about their new collaboration with the British Heart Foundation!
SURPRISE - there's a part 2!! I also have a mini PrettyLittleThing haul to share with you, as their holiday shop is filled with great bargains and gorgeous pieces. You can shop PrettyLittleThing's holiday shop by clicking here!
With so many shops on the high street, and retailers online, it's hard to know where to start when it comes to looking for your holiday wardrobe. So I've compiled my Insta-wardrobe into one handy little blog post - there'll be a few surprises in here, so stay tuned!
Have you ever tried Tequila Rose? Ever since I worked in a bar that served it, I've been in love with the strawberry cream liqueur! I was lucky enough to be invited to an exciting pampering session with Tequila Rose at Lipstick and Gunpowder in Brighton.
I'm often asked on social media how I manage to exercise so much with my ME and Fibromyalgia - so I thought I'd write a blog post with all the things that help me. Of course, everyone is different so not all of these tips may work for you but I'm really loving being more active within the chronic illness community!
As much as I want to live in cute sandals and flip flops right now, British weather isn't really feeling my vibe. Thankfully, colourful boots are the perfect way to keep your feet warm and dry, whilst still rocking a cute spring outfit!
Who doesn't love a bit of festival fashion? It's a great chance to express yourself and your personality through outfits that you may not feel comfortable wearing on a day-to-day basis. I was so excited to receive a festival fashion haul from PrettyLittleThing so I've spent the last week pretending I was at Coachella!
What do me, Alice Liveing and Where's Mollie have in common? We all attended the Cosmopolitan Self Made Summit! This post is filled with my key takeaways from the day, organised into three bitesized categories - 'how to grow your Instagram following', 'how to work with brands' and 'how to cope mentally'. I really hope you enjoy, and if you have any tips you'd like to add then please leave a comment!
Since booking a holiday to Mexico in June, I have been so motivated and excited to get into the gym. This motivation was doubled when I received some gym goodies from SKINS Sportswear! Before I get into my review, I NEED to share with you my favourite glute activation move!
Have you been considering adding swimming into your exercise routine? As summer approaches, swimming becomes a key part of my fitness regime - I love a cooling dip in the outdoor pool at my gym and there's so many reasons why!
Spring has SPRUNG and I am loving all of the new trends that it's bringing. Goodbye faux fur coats (well, maybe not, it is England after all!) and hello polka dot playsuits, cute co-ords and all of the pastel colours. Amongst all of the new spring trends coming out, Boohoo released their Zendaya Edit - which I am LOVING.
For me, a good night's sleep has never been more important! This is a bit of a follow on to my 'Self care starts with a good night's sleep' post as I have some more tips for you and (of course) lots more books to recommend!
Following the backlash against CancerResearchUK's latest campaign "OB_S__Y is a cause of cancer", I decide to explore the potential effect of the campaign and whether it should be deemed as fat-shaming.
I'm a big believer in self-love and often think that we should spoil ourselves a lot more. February has been a bit of a rubbish month for me so I've been treating myself A LOT! I thought I'd share with you all some of my favourite things that I've bought, or received, that would be perfect if you're in the mood to treat yourself too!
Spring is almost upon us and I'm definitely feeling a little mushy after Valentines Day. I don't have any weddings to go to this year, but I know the struggle of finding that perfect spring wedding dress / graduation dress / posh party dress. Coast have a beautiful range of dresses for spring occasions.
I cannot resist a nice hoodie or sweatshirt and this one is definitely the NICCEst (see what I did there?). My outfits have been a little 'extra' recently so I thought it would be nice to share the sort of thing I'd wear on a normal day out
I can't believe that Valentines is tomorrow! Whether you want an outfit so good it'll make your man start looking at diamond rings, or one so bad it'll make your ex cry from losing you - there's so much to find on Mercari!
I listen to an odd selection of music at the gym and I thought it would be funny to share it with you guys! From musicals to rock to pop, I have a real mix of genres and tastes when I'm working out and will often be in HMV looking for new tracks to add to my collection. I hope you guys are ready for this - don't judge!!
I remember seeing a clip of Ricky Gervais using M.E as part of his stand up comedy act... "Oh no, M.E, that's the one where 'I don't feel like going to work today'", he says, miming calling in sick and pretending to go back to sleep. How can I identify as disabled, when many people still don't recognise the seriousness of my condition as they do others?
I'm now out of my brace (and into some hot-pink tape!) and able to exercise again. What's more motivating than new gym gear? Nothing! So when New Look got in touch with the chance to try out some of their new sportswear collection, I jumped at the chance! (At least, I would have if I could jump right now!)
It's so important not to underestimate the power of a long and deep sleep on your body - both mentally and physically. Inspired by Georgia Knight's post 'Too Scared To Sleep | My Struggle With Night Terrors', I thought I'd share with you all some new products I've discovered, and some old favourites too, which contribute towards getting a good night's sleep
If you're looking to really make a splash this summer, perhaps you'd like to join the celebrities by wearing Melissa Odabash designer swimwear. The former swimsuit model definitely knows her stuff when it comes to creating gorgeous pieces, so I thought I'd put together a little wishlist! Everything shown is available on SimplyBeach.com!
As my confidence grows, I feel more comfortable trying different trends to find my own unique style. The amount of time I’ve spent housebound due to chronic illness over the past 6 and a half years has left me with a lot of anxiety - especially when it comes to what I’m wearing.
I was always that kid that rolled their eyes whenever their mum told them to take a coat, but it's now 2018 and I CAN'T STOP BUYING THEM!! I found two gorgeous coats in New Look and couldn't decide between them so (of course) had to buy both!
Standing at a whopping 5 ft 2 (and a half), I'm always looking for ways to make myself look taller. I'm a firm believer in high waisted EVERYTHING and so, when the palazzo trouser trend came about, I was definitely intrigued.
