What I’m Wearing: Elephants & Exploring

Top: Forever 21 Shorts: H&M Shoes: Converse Bag: Zara Today I thought I’d dig one out of the archive, so here’s a major throwback to Madeira 2015. Embracing my inner child, sightseeing in an elephant tee. What can I say, I wanted to be carefree once more? I went to explore the highest point of…

Urban Decay ‘Naked Flushed’

John Lewis Clearance, you really did outdo yourselves. Okay, so it may have been a little chipped (photos are from day of purchase) but with it came a meaty discount, so I can’t complain. So let’s review! Bronzer: In short, this is my new go-to bronzer. It’s natural tones remind me of Benefit’s Hoola bronzer,…

What I’m Wearing: Madeira & Madness

Top: Primark Shorts: H&M Watch: Michael Kors Nails: Essie Here’s another cheeky archive post, I was so silly not to have posted these before! There’s plenty to follow too. Anywho, here’s a little OOTD from my trip to Madeira last summer, it was 40-odd degrees, so it was impossible to wear anything other than a…

MAC ‘Soft and Gentle’ Highlighter Review

Highlighter, love it or hate it. It’s the new craze in the beauty world. Strobing, contouring, you name it. You’ll need a highlighter. As a novice in this department, I went on a long and painstaking trip to Selfridges to learn the tricks of the trade. In MAC, I really did fall, head over heals,…

Initial Thoughts on the EU Referendum

Friday marked a sad, sad day for our nation. Regardless of whether you voted to stay or leave the EU,  I don’t think the any of us were expecting to be dropped into such a vast economic crisis overnight. In two hours, £350billion (40 years worth of EU funding) was lost, with the pound plummeting to…

Chilango Manchester

It’s a Wednesday morning. Still recovering from the Lakes, we decided to relax for a day in Manchester City Centre and grab a bite to eat (and find a holiday!). Needless to day that Oxford Road never fails to impress us with its diverse and truly delicious cafes and pubs. Two minutes from the station,…

Capital Creativity: National Gallery

After exploring the Tate Modern in my last arty post, I thought I would share my visit to the National Gallery with you all. contemporary art isn’t necessarily my thing, but we went along to have a look anyway, after all it’s a pretty iconic place to visit. In all honesty, I didn’t find much…

Lake District: 128 Hours

After 60km of mountain climbing and three nights camping, I’m back to my bed (and bathtub) and very worn out. Torver: We started our trip in Torver, quaint and quiet. Very quiet. But perfect for a days walking to Eskdale, (under 10km away). This isn’t to say that it isn’t hard work mind. Like the rest…

Capitalist Creativity: Tate Modern

Today I’ve been tidying up my blog, (who knew having a new design would cause so much work?) and for one reason or another, it made me realise what travels and explorations I’ve completely skipped over. Granted, when I visited London in March I was in the midst of a deep illness, and really struggled…

Love is Love

Love is love. Regardless of race, religion, gender or sexuality, we are all made up of the same balls of atoms; we all need to be fed and looked after; we all need a job and a home to live in. And to societies most vulnerable, it is especially important to help them feel safe…

Dating your Best Friend

My man is my best mate, and what’s wrong with that? Don’t get me wrong, I was once that girl who refused to budge out the ‘friend zone‘ for years, terrified of losing friendships, claiming ‘he’s just a friend‘, telling myself it was impossible, I mean it never works in Hollywood right? There are so…

Mental Health an’ that

It appears that in this day and age: if you appear confident and self assured, you’re arrogant, but if you put yourself down, you’re trying to get attention or faking modesty. It’s a truly disturbing world that we live in, everyday we are faced with all kinds of tragedy, illness, death and suffering surrounds us,…
