A reason to exercise, that has nothing to do with looks
I used to be, quite firmly, anti-exercise. I was literally the nemesis of exercise. Sure, I knew in theory that it was supposed to make you feel better, look better, blah blah blah. But hating exercise became a part of my personality so deeply ingrained that it was almost a reflex to wince at the thought.

5 Ways to Stop Hating Mondays
Almost everyone hates Monday. It's the first and official sign that the weekend is over and we pretty much have to go back to reality. We have to turn on our alarm back and go back to work which is not the ideal situation when we are tired and we necessarily don’t want to go.. However, there’s always something positive in each negative situation, so here are 5 reasons why we should not hate Monday and start embracing it!

Antioxidants – Why you need them and how to get more
To say the world of nutrition is confusing is a bit of an understatement.  The sheer quantity of disease-fighting superfoods and life-changing diets has got out of hand (in my opinion).  We not only have too much choice but a whole host of conflicting advice.  This can add pressure to our already over-worked brains, and it’s all too easy to lose motivation (if we don’t see results by the end of January) and resort to old habits.

5 things I’ve learnt since becoming a beauty blogger

It's been almost a year now since I first dipped my toe in the water of the online beauty community. I’ve been an avid skincare and make-up fan for far longer than this, but as I believed I knew SO MUCH, it was clearly time to shout about it right? Wrong! My biggest lesson was just how much I didn’t know and how much there is to learn when it comes to beauty. However, despite never calling myself an expert, I thought I’d share a few learnings from my 2019 beauty journey. So here goes…...

Why Telling Your Story Matters

Today is World Storytelling Day. A day that is marked across the globe by people from different cultures, speaking different languages, as they tell each other the stories that matter to them. Think of it as a global campfire that happens every March equinox. To me, these personal stories have always been the best kind of tales. Growing up, my Mum would tell me about the places that connected me to my roots; the fauna of Antigua, the people of Liverpool. I used to walk around in an imaginary world, fuelled by the oral stories of my family, often passed down through generations....

Compelling books across centuries by Females, for Females

Literature by women has developed across centuries. Once, society set ongoing pressures on women’s writing - it was considered an act of rebellion against societal norms; yet women have been able to produce some of the most iconic and inspirational novels that have made a permanent marker in transforming history. To celebrate International Women’s Day, I’m going to share with you some jaw-clenching, eloquent and meaningful novels that have been written by some of our best feminist authors across generations....

International Womens Day: Women in Beauty

Without a doubt, women have been revolutionising the beauty industry, right from the early days of even the 1900s when Elizabeth Arden bowled onto the scene waving the flag for women everywhere. With her outspoken nature and scientific makeup formulas, she got the world on board with the idea that women can wear makeup for the sheer delight of it, for themselves and not for a man! What a thought!...

Getting the Perfect Brow in 2020

Brows are, in my opinion, the most important thing on your face. They shape and frame your eyes and, let’s face it, bad brows can make a BIG difference; I would know… I over-plucked mine in the ‘90s when I was at school, the time when it was ‘cool’ to have super slim, line brows. Since then, all I’ve done is try to get fat, fluffy, gorgeous brows. I’ve tried pretty much every hack, tool, tip and trick, so I thought I’d pass on what I’ve learnt to help you get fluffy brows for 2020....

Beauty Recycling: How to get involved

We've all been there - at the bottom of our favourite lipstick or the pan of our beloved bronzer, unsure what to do with the empty product. Whilst the beauty industry is increasingly promoting sustainability and recycling by developing eco-friendly products and packaging, it’s likely the majority of us are still just throwing empties in the bin totally unsure of the consequences....

Staying Sane in Isolation

It’s now been – ahem – a while since Boris announced the country-wide lockdown, with the entire of the U.K.’s non-essential workforce suddenly working from home full time.   After the initial giddiness at the prospect of an extra half an hour in bed, not having to battle the rush hour Northern Line twice a day, and a new work wardrobe comprising mainly loungewear and sliders, the reality of the situation settled in.  ...

Vegan Makeup Isn’t Just For Vegans

2019 was dubbed ‘The Year of The Vegan’ and by now a quarter of millennials identify as vegan or vegetarian. Whatever your views on the vegan diet might be, you may still want to consider more deeply about what you're putting on your face. Our skin absorbs around 60% of the products we apply to it, so it’s probably a good idea that we research carefully into what we want to slather on....

Stepping Out of My Comfort Zone

This New Year, I took the phrase ‘start as you mean to go on’ and ran with it. Ending 2019 working in retail left me feeling a bit deflated. I knew that I was never going to let it become my life, but I’d graduated university in the summer and I guess I expected more. So, when the opportunity to venture abroad arose, I knew it was my ticket out of this slump and to somewhere I could really push myself....

How to Plan a Cohesive Instagram Feed

Fancy stepping up your Instagram game or just get into something new? Last year (still sounds weird!), I decided that I wanted to do something a bit different with my Instagram to make it stand out more and to just look unique to other people’s really. I am a really creative person and love coming up with ideas and concepts for my content, so I thought sticking to a strong theme would be good and push me to be much more creative too!...
