I posted one of the (awesome, thanks Anna) pics from this outfit on my Instagram this morning with a caption that was just exactly what I was thinking. What shall I write to go along with this outfit? I just felt like I didn’t have loads to say (for once, I know, parents evening flashback). Most of the time, I’ve got something to chat about, be it something great or the struggles of work, blogging, life, everything! But, this time I didn’t really know what to write.
That’s pretty much my life motto. Alongside all the other serious shit we have to put up with in life, why can’t we all just have nice eyebrows and be happy? Eyebrows are so important for the shape of your face, in my opinion they really finish things off and make you look more polished.
A bit of a rambly post today, all about blogging and the world of influencers! At the moment, it feels like everyone is a blogger and also, at the same time, everyone is making it seriously big! These girls are giving up their jobs to be their own bosses, travel the world and absolutely smash it. I love following these girls, I love blogging and I (obviously) love paid jobs with brands I love but, would I want to do it full time?
Staying hydrated is a huge thing for me. I’m constantly drinking water both to keep myself hydrated and I’ve also got into the habit of carrying water everywhere because if my Invisalign, incase I need a quick drink to make them more comfortable or after I’ve had a coffee and there’s no time for a full teeth clean! If you want to read more about my Invisalign course, check out my blog post with all the lowdown. Even if I’m just heading out for a coffee, shopping, into town or whether I’m travelling or going to work, you’ll always find me with a bottle of water. I find that I get headaches really easily if I don’t top up my beverage levels!
It’s official, say goodbye to your trusty skinny jeans (sob!) and welcome the old favourite straight leg denim back into your life. Straight leg jeans are the epitome of relaxed style, coming in and out of trends as time rolls on – but its official, they are back on trend for 2017.
Getting the right fit is vital. Make sure they’re slim, but not tight like skinnies. With a clean-cut but casual look, they look great with sweaters or relaxed tees. They are great for perfecting the chilled-out style. Whilst choosing the right top to match with your jeans is pretty easy – shoes however, can be tricky. They can make or break an outfit, so choose wisely when finishing off your outfit. Here are some of my favourite choices…
We headed down to Birmingham last weekend to see Lower Than Atlantis and Hands Like Houses at the O2 Academy which was pretty great! Before our gig we headed to Strada at the ICC for some pre-show munching so I thought I’d tell you what I thought. The ICC is just by Brindley Place and the canal so the setting is lovely as you can see out of the window. In the summer, I bet it’s amazing as Strada can open up the doors for a little al fresco dining.
Weekend coffees and brunches at home are one of those little luxuries that I’ll never give up. I love heading out for breakfast but nothing quite beats not having to get ready before you tuck into some tasty eggs or pastries and coffee in the morning. It’s just a little bit of at-home luxury that we love to kick off our weekend with. Do you have any weekend rituals that you live by?
I’ve finally finished my course of Invisalign! After 58 weeks of changing aligners, brushing my teeth up to 6 times a day, tears, complaining and sulking, it’s over. It’s taken me just over a year to finish and I’m waiting for my retainers to arrive. So, I thought I’d do a little run down of some things that have happened, basically my Invisalign story. If anyone has any specific questions then I’d love to be able to help, so either leave me a comment or tweet me!
I’ve started travelling a lot more within the past few years and visiting loads of new cities, both in the UK and Europe. I’ve discovered how much I love being a ‘travel blogger’ and how useful it is to other people to be able to read reviews of places and see real-life images of hotels, resorts and places to eat and drink. We always, always read numerous reviews about hotels, cafes and things to do before we hit a new city or holiday destination! I follow so many travel bloggers, I’ll do a post on my favourites soon but, if you’re a travel blogger or Instagrammer, I’ve found the best hashtags to make sure your content is seen throughout the channels and profiles that you want it to be.
When it comes to training and fitness, as much as we’re all going crazy with the HIIT workouts, getting up at crazy o’clock and morphing ourselves into ‘fitness and wellness’ experts, we all need time to chill out and basically not be in the gym. Here are three things that I always do to recover from training.
