I like to think I’m somewhere in the middle when it comes to being high maintenance about my appearance. I definitely care, I wear makeup pretty much everyday and I spent money on getting my brows, hair and nails done. But, I feel like I’m fairly relaxed because I don’t spend hours and hours on it and I don’t want to look like I’ve just walked off Love Island. Basically, I unashamedly love beauty and I find it really fun to experiment with makeup and beauty trends. Here are my four rules for getting perfect lashes and brows because sometimes that’s all that makes you happy sometimes and that’s OK.
After a crazy week which involved no blogging at all we headed to Lincoln for what we hoped would be a sunny, spring-like cute day out. Unfortunately, it ended up being -2 and snowing but it was still lovely to visit somewhere new and having some time out. I love checking out new cities in the UK that we haven’t been to before and it was even nicer to just travel somewhere just for the day. Lincoln is only 55 minutes from Nottingham on the train and the train station is literally around the corner from the town centre.
This time of year can suck. It’s cold, we’re all trying to keep to our New Year’s resolutions of spending less money and working out more and all we want to do is wear cute spring dresses and drink cocktails. Well, this is me anyway. But, alas, we can’t do all of these things all the time and I’m definitely not wearing a cute spring dress any time soon. I am the thermal queen and I am proud. So, I’ve been having a think about a few things that can still pop a smile on your face (or at least make you happy inside if you’re heartless like me) that are really simple!
What does workwear mean to you? I mean, when I was little I always thought you had to either wear a uniform or a suit when you ‘got a job’ and obviously we know this isn’t true!
Workwear is only something that I’ve started to really think about now that I’ve moved to a slightly more professional office. Not gonna lie, I used to wear dungarees when I worked at UNiDAYS and it was totally normal. Now, I have a lot more client meetings and I don’t feel as productive if I’m not wearing what I class as my ‘workwear’. I feel like I’ve said ‘workwear’ way too many times now but let’s just roll with it shall we. I have three staples when it comes to getting dressed for the office and I wanted to share a little inspiration with you babes just in case you fancy a workwear wardrobe update!
Here goes the last blog post of February – where’s the time gone? This one is all about my number one babe, brunch. Brunch is serious stuff in Berlin and that’s what I like to hear! Brunch is *probably* my favourite food group and I am all about breakfast food at any time of the day. When we headed to Berlin we were really excited about the coffee culture and the tasty brunch treats. Here are my fave three destinations that we hit up whilst we were in the German capital.
Say hey to 3INA, (pronounced Mee-Nah!) a guilt-free beauty brand which is vegan wherever they can be and they’re cruelty free as well as using recyclable materials in their packaging. So, all’s good so far, right? Plus, they’ve got super cute branding, an amazing range of products and colours and they sent me these gorgeous matte lipsticks to have a look at and I wanted to share them with you babes.
Heading away on city breaks is one of my favourite things, I love to see new cities and cultures. We plan our city breaks around food, I won’t lie to you! I’m a massive foodie and finding little gems in new cities is so much fun. I wanted to share three of my finds from Krakow in Poland because they were seriously good. These are all dinner places as Krakow was less of the brunch and coffee scene and more dinner and beers.
You all know how much I’ve been obsessed with this aviator jacket this winter and I’m looking for a new spring time version to fill the void! Here are 9 of my favourite jackets on the market right now, the high street has so many awesome jackets, coats and denim delights so… enjoy!
It’s my 25th birthday tomorrow and that sounds super old. I know it’s not really but you always say when you’re little “When I’m 25 I’ll have blah…” so it sounds like a serious age! I think anything from 20-24 sounds quite young still but when you hit 25 it’s BAM you’re on the way to thirty now babe, sort your life out. Here are 25 good things that I’m loving from the past year / things that I’ve learnt over the years. 25 is an age where you should *probably* have your shit together and I almost feel like I do!
Without it even being Valentine’s Day pink and red have been all over the high street recently! I for one am loving this combination that used to be a total fashion faux pas. Remember the days when pink and red should never have been seen together? Well, no more.
Basically, these days if you’re not wearing pink and red together, who are you? I posted this super cute Primark sweatshirt on my Instagram the other day (£5 might I add) which is baby pink with “Love Will Save Us” written on the front and it inspired me to seek out some other cute bargain-ous pieces from the great British high street. Everything is frilly, statement or textured and I love all of these piece. I hope you like ’em!
