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!
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!
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!
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!
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!!
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
Rather than the typical 'for him' or 'for your mum' gift guides, I've decided to write one to help you find the perfect gifts for the people that you NEED to impress, but don't really know. This could be your new partner's family, the new manager at work who you desperately need to wow, or your neighbour who feeds your cats whilst you're on holiday. I've prepared a range of gifts which aren't too intimate or expensive, but are sure to excite!
Launched at the beginning of summer, Pizza Express's Vegan Giardiniera pizza has been eaten over 200,000 times and has won the title of 'Best Vegan Pizza' in PETA's 2017 Vegan Food Awards. To celebrate this, and World Vegan Day, I was one of the lucky bloggers invited to Pizza Express' first ever Vegan Pizza party!
Southern Pursuits, located at Tulley's Farm in Crawley, offered me a fun day out and - of course, I jumped at the chance! Southern Pursuits has a whole range of activities, including clay pigeon shooting, archery and hovercrafts. I chose to do quad biking and axe throwing - an activity quickly growing in popularity due to Game of Thrones.
As you guys know, I moved house! Amongst the IKEA trips, bed building and unpacking, it would have been so easy to live off pizza and takeaways! Thankfully, the Nuttie Elves at Nutritional Organic sent me a lovely box filled with fruit and veg
I know what you're thinking, "Ali, I saw your graduation pictures!", but I made the decision not to attend my graduation ceremony! I touched on things a bit in my Instagram post - but I wanted to write a blog post about it to help others in my situation.
I love a good festival, but I'm also one of those people that hates camping / being dirty / going to the toilet outside. So here's my little festival essentials checklist - so you can enjoy the music without feeling like you're going to get dysentery!
I was kindly invited to try the new Franco Manca, at Brighton Marina.. and obviously opted for the cheesiest pizza possible! Safety first: if you haven't eaten then go get yourself a snack because this blog is about to make you HUNGRY.
Whilst hundreds of people took to the streets to run the Brighton marathon, myself and some of my gorgeous blogging gals bathed in the sunshine at Hotel Du Vin to eat afternoon tea and sip on champagne and gin!
