As a gal who’s pretty obsessed with interiors – as in, I used to browse the homeware section of the Argos catalogue as a child, just for bants (yes I was very cool) – I’ve spent most of my adult life not really being able to gain much practical experience.
This is mainly because I’ve moved around a lot over the last ten years. At 18 I went from my mum’s house to uni, where I lived in three different houses (all with increasing levels of ick, naturally), then moved to my dad’s before I started renting with Lauren aged 22. View Full Post
Watch: Nordgreen* | Co-Ord: Primark
The topic of this post has been rattling around my brain for a while; but without a sold thread to loop it all together, I ended up leaving it to tumble around with all of my other half-formed ideas and un-tweeted opinions on Love Island.
Then, as I was snapping these photos of the b-e-a-utiful Silver Mesh Philosopher* watch I was kindly sent from Nordgreen, I realised that this was the essence of the post: time and whether it’s ever ‘too late’.

Yes lads and lasses, you read that title right: I, the self-proclaimed chicken nugget queen and girl who once had a reputation at work for eating pork pie for breakfast (one time might I add, but some reps just stick with you), have stopped eating meat. It was a change I’d been slo-o-o-wly moving towards for a while, but for the last couple of months I’ve gone cold tofu and kicked my meat habit.
Okay, I can almost hear the eye-rolls from here. But I’ll kick off by saying that this isn’t intended to be a preachy post where I try to urge you all to start milking almonds – instead, I thought I’d share some of the things I’ve noticed since making the change from meat-eater to things-that-are-shaped-like-meat-eater.

If you’re struggling to find the perfect gift for your dad, boyfriend, husband, brother, brother-from-another-mother or whoever this Christmas then you can start to breathe easy. Why? Is it because men have finally started to appreciate Diptyque candles and Becca highlighters as much as we have and we can start sharing? Er, no. But I have found the perfect new luxury men’s brand, making finding that special present 320 times easier this year. Phew.

Cocktails and summer are the ultimate perfect pair (followed closely by cocktails and winter, and cocktails and always), so when I was recently sent The Tipple Box* it was absolutely fantastic timing.

So, God knows how this happened considering my Christmas dinner feels like it was last week, but we’re now more than halfway through the year. EEK. In order to distract myself from the sheer panic of how quickly time is going (and that I really need to start putting more money into pension, seeing as I’ll be 70 in about two months at this rate), I decided to focus on some of my favourite brand discoveries of the year. Of course there are still five months for me to fall in love with new products, but for now these are my winners of 2017… View Full Post
We’ve been a little bit hashtag-blessed with the weather for a couple of weeks, but of course when you live in the UK you know not to get too hyped about a long, hot summer. The chances are that there are still plenty of wet weekends ahead of us, so I thought it was worth putting together a little guide to my favourite TV shows at the moment. View Full Post
