30 Signs You’ve Lived in London Too Long

You proclaim with glee how cheap everything is as soon as you’re 10 miles north of Watford You find yourself telling your parents that they haven’t lived until they’ve tried sourdough pizza You spend £12 on a Whole Foods salad for lunch and die a little bit inside You roll your eyes every time you get […]

In Defence of ‘Clean Eating’

I want to preclude this post by saying that I am a lifelong fan of gluten in all its forms. I adore cheese, I can polish off a Five Guys burger like there’s no tomorrow, and chocolate is my BFF. I am a fan of all food generally (except mushrooms, but let’s not get into […]

13 Things to Do in Valencia

So you might have seen from my many gratuitous Instagrams that I spent a long weekend on the continent last week, in the sunny city of Valencia. We packed quite a lot into four days and I fell a bit in love with the place, so I thought I’d share my top tips and recommendations […]

Imposter Syndrome & Not Being “Interesting”

I’m fairly sure that everyone has these days. Days where they feel blurred in the background, like the real you just isn’t being seen. When everyone on social media seems to be having big discussions and you can’t think of one measly tweet. You’re not especially sad or miserable. In fact, you’ve got it pretty good […]

My Love/Hate Relationship with Facebook

Warning… It’s Complicated. Sorry, had to make that joke. Anyway, time to talk about my all-time favourite social media platform, Facebook. YEY. That was irony btw. Cause most of the time I can’t stand Facebook and its aggressive ads, annoying videos and mostly mindless news that I just can’t effing stop consuming. I’m so glad that social […]

Holiday Reading Recommendations

I don’t know about you but I am a BIG FAN of beach reads and will quite happily spend the day ignoring everyone else I’m on holiday with and getting lost in a book instead. Admittedly in the past few years my reading concentration has rapidly declined (thanks social media old buddy old pal) and […]

A Night at #IRLPanel

This week I had the pleasure of attending the brilliant #IRLPanel, the brainchild of bloggers Emma Gannon and Laura Jane Williams. The aim of their event is to bring together women from the internet for a night of meaningful conversation, self-empowerment and connection IRL (in real life for those who don’t like acronyms). Emma and Laura guided […]

My Favourite Spring Wellbeing Products

When I first started this blog (nearly two years ago now – say whatttt) I was all about the experiences over the things. For example, I never really found beauty products, fashion or material stuff that interesting. Partly because I wasn’t that bothered about following trends, but mostly because I was poor LOL true story. I […]

Babe, bae, bbz & other Terms of Endearment

“Alright my divas!!!” trilled the aerobics instructor in a broad East London accent. I instantly cringed and thought this was a mistake. I don’t, and most likely never will, identify as being a “diva” in either the positive or negative connotation. I told myself to just get through the exercise class with as little awkwardness as possible and […]

Easter Special – Peanut Butter Cups Recipe

It’s Easter! The season of great food. Chocolate eggs, chocolate bunnies, roast lamb, hot cross buns, more chocolate eggs… You can see why I love it, right?! Before heading back to the parents for the long weekend and going hard on roast dinners and windswept walks, I’ve been celebrating Easter a little bit differently this year. On Sunday […]
