The New Daily Habits I'm Trying To Master

As we’re slowly approaching new years resolution time I thought I’d get ahead of the game and try and take a serious look at my daily habits. Some of them are pretty great if I do say so myself but some, well some are pretty questionable and I want to change that. Weirdly, one of my favourite topics of conversation is the little things that everyone does daily as you never know what might work for you and your lifestyle. And this is everything that I'm trying to work on at the moment...

8 Beauty Products I Can't Get Enough Of Right Now

After browsing my own archives I noticed it’s been a good whilst since I’ve shared the beauty products that are tickling my fancy at the moment. I’m desperately trying to cut back on on the amount of stuff I have and that also means keeping my beauty stash to somewhat of a minimum, which is hard as I absolutely love the stuff. There is nothing that makes my heart flutter more than a good foundation or a new acid toner on the market that promises the smoothest skin you’ll ever know. So here are my current beauty loves, naturally there's a couple of familiar faces but there's also some new bits that have wowed me lately!

If Money Were No Question...

One of my favourite conversations to have with somebody is ‘what would you do if money was no question?’. Because although we might not like to admit it to ourselves or to anybody else money controls a lot of what we do. It might mean we’re forced to work a job that we cannot stand or we might have enough financially that we are completely free to do what we please and that is most definitely the one thing that money does buy; freedom. So think of this post of a conversation between friends about what you’d do if money wasn’t something you had to worry about and this is what I would do...

Styling The Classic Barbour Jacket

One of the first designer pieces I ever invested in was a Barbour jacket and it’s the most popular search topic on this blog. It’s something that I’d wanted for years and years but they’re not cheap but they are definitely an investment piece in an outdoor lovers wardrobe. I first became aware of the style in around 2008 when they were all the rage with the likes of Miss Chung and she’s still one of my biggest style inspirations to date and I've coveted one ever since. In 2016 I purchased my first Barbour jacket which was the Aeonium style and this year I purchased the classic Beadnell which actually ended up replacing my initial purchase as I prefer the fit a little more. So here are a few words about why I’m such a fan of the brand and my favourite way to style my sage Beadnell which has been my ultimate staple this autumn.

Why I'm Glad My 5-Year Plan Didn't Work Out

Hands up who has had a 5-year plan and it not go to plan? Well, my 5-year plan could not have been any more different to how my life is today and now I can look back at it and feel grateful that things didn’t work out. But at the time where I felt like my life was falling apart then I can’t say I was exactly thrilled. Hindsight really is the most wonderful thing! Anyway, here are all the positives that have come from a change of plans and ditching anything that remotely looks like a 5-year plan because life just doesn't work that way.

The Tale Of Our Bathroom Renovation

Part of me wondered if this day would ever come, but today I finally get to share my finished bathroom renovation with you. Although I took you along over on my Instagram I wanted to do a full round-up over here divulging all the details. As well as sharing the finished result I wanted to share about the costs, the materials, the builders and the general stress of a renovation as there is far more that goes into a project like this than I ever thought.

The Clothing Items That I've Had The Longest & Still Wear

After being absolutely horrified by the Stacey Dooley documentary on fast fashion (which every single internet human is rightfully discussing, I even put my own thoughts into a post). I’ve been taking a good look at my wardrobe and what pieces I’ve had in there the longest. No longer being a huge shopper means that means when I do shop I tend to only try and purchase things that I know I can get a lot of use from so here are the things that have really stood the test of time in my wardrobe over the years.

Why I've Not Enjoyed Running My Own Business In 2018 & Why It's Ok

This post needs to begin with a disclaimer, I realise how lucky and privileged I am to own my own business and be able to make a living from it. But I also feel this post is well overdue and might be of use to anybody in the same boat, so here we go. Without fail at this time of year, I always find myself looking back on what the year has bought and how I’ve felt throughout the last 10 months. And to be honest, 2018 hasn’t been my favourite year at all, there have been some amazing things happen of course, but there are also some things that haven’t been amazing. And one of those things for me has been running my own business, whenever I see people talk about having their own business and being their own boss. It’s typically all about the positives and rarely about any of the downsides. And even though the bad outweigh the good sometimes you can just have a bad month or even a few and that is what this year has been for me. So I thought today I would share why I’ve not always loved running my own business is 2018 and how I’m trying to change my mindset going forward and dig myself out of the rut that I’ve been trapped in.

Let's Talk; Fast Fashion & Why We Need To Make A Change

Much like most bloggers and online humans I recently watched Stacey Dooley’s documentary on the world of fast fashion and just like everyone else, I was horrified. Although I’ve worked really hard on changing my shopping habits over the past few years and been vocal about that online. I never realised just how much of an effect the world of fast fashion was having on the planet. And although there has been an abundance of posts on the subject lately, it’s something we need to talk about so here is my take on the world of fast fashion and an open conversation on the subject.

Why I Love Being A Little Bit Of A Loner

Even though I’ve written about loneliness so many times I still feel that edge of uncertainty about it. It’s still a word that has such negative connotations and try as I might there are just some mindsets that are harder to break than others. The reason why this post came into my head is because my boyfriend has gone back to touring and apart from a few days since August it’s just been me and the whippies. And to be honest, I’ve absolutely loved it and it made me realise just how much of a lone wolf I am and why it’s not a weird thing to be so happy in your own company.

Skincare That Makes Me Dare To Bare | Ad

-this post is in conjunction with Boots but all thoughts are my own-

Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about not only my skin but how there are so many factors to take into consideration when it comes to skincare. Not only is it key to find products that work for you, your skin type and your budget but you have to take your lifestyle into consideration too.

Everything I've Bought Lately That Was Worth The Money

In a somewhat recent blog post, I said I wanted to start sharing the things that I buy in the month as I love sharing little wish lists but more often than not I don’t buy everything that’s on it. I’m always trying to cut back on what I’m buying and I only want to purchase things that I ever need and I know will last as fast fashion is such a huge problem. And I think by sharing what I’m purchasing it makes me far more accountable as well as getting the chance to share some things that are very much worth the money if you're in the market for them.
