5 reasons I ditched daily make-up

Minimalist print clashing and accessories

I’ll be the first to admit I’m the worst when it comes to dressing appropriately for Winter. I always forget to pick up a jacket, despite owning so many, and I’m forever forgoing tights or exposing my ankles to the cold. But then, what’s the point of looking fab if you’re gonna hide it under […]

Why I gave up bras and will I ever go back?

A few of you will probably already know this, considering I regularly announce my lack of bra wearing in person on a regular basis. It’s mainly because a. It changed my life (dramatic much?) and b. I want other ladies to know the option exists. The first bra I ever owned was from Marks and […]

Festive Cheats; top 5 baking hacks

I’ve grown up around my Mum and Nan always baking in the kitchen. Freshly baked cookies, the scent of warm vanilla, it’s basically the dream… AND you get to eat at the end of it (win, win). But there isn’t always time, space or dollar for a kitchen aid lying around. So here are my […]

Festive Cheats; Christmas Tree Alternatives For City Centre Living.

Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree, why do you take up so much room in my already small apartment with limited storage all year long with your lovely but unnecessarily large branches? Yeah, I could buy a real one and throw it away to save space but a. pricey, b. not great for the environment […]

Festive Cheats; Baileys Chocolate & Salted Caramel Tarts

I’m a sucker for salted caramel… And millionaires shortbread… and anything with Baileys around Christmas time, as it goes. So these tasty little tarts are a new found addiction of mine.
