Justification in the Blogging Industry

The 19th February 2017 was a blogging milestone for me. The week leading up to it L’Oreal launched their stunning Beauty and the Beast inspired lipstick range and I was willing to do anything in my power to get them. Launching only in Italy on amazon, I sucked up the shipping costs and purchased them for god knows how much. They were beautiful and worth it. When they arrived they were stunning. I had literally seen nothing like them. I instantly grabbed some white paper to use as a  ...

October’s To Do List

I haven’t written a to-do list in a hella long time. October is such a busy month for me at work and at home and this year.. it is even busier.

The Weirdness of Changing Your Name After Marriage

No one ever tells you about this bit… the total wipeout of the name you used to go by. All your life you have been called and answer to one name. Your family name. And within a few moments of saying the words ‘I DO’ you become someone totally different yet exactly the same. Growing up if you attended a British state school there would have been a least a dozen people in your year that were called almost entirely but their surname. I was pretty much one of those people.  ...

Impress Nails… 1 Year On.

Motherhood comes with its tests and trials that I have realised now. But one thing no one prepares you for is how much times you have to give up. If you are thinking about having children or do not have any children then you’ll know the only person you have to deal or be responsible for is yourself. You do not realise how selfish you are until you have a child. That is not said horribly. I was once the girl who would sit there all day in my PJs binge watching a series on Netflix not  ...
