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.

White Tassel Dress: Pretty Little Thing* | Denim Jacket: Boohoo | Earrings: H&M | Shoes: New Look
Oh my goodness, have you ever seen anything so sassy? And the dress is pretty cool too. I kid, obviously; there’s nothing sassy about me currently sitting in my bed wearing gym leggings with no chance of actually attending the gym, whereas this dress is 100% sass. View Full Post
I’ve got a few Kleenex to hand while I’m writing this because I’m prepared for it to get EMOSH. I’ve been back in rainy England for about a month now, but it’s finally time to reflect on my b-e-a-utiful holiday to Santorini – and what better way to reflect than with a little Santorini travel blog?!

Crop Top*: River Island | Fila Leggings*: Topshop | Shoes: Boohoo | Bag: Michael Kors
Flip me guys – it’s only bloody autumn already! Yes, it’s basically felt like autumn since May (what is this ‘summer’ you speak of?), but it’s actually, officially, properly here now. And while the colder season can be crap for a number of reasons – dark mornings, hat hair, DE-ICER – there are also some major advantages. Costa’s Christmas drinks menu, for example. Stollen, for another. Aaaaand an excuse to go shopping for a new autumn wardrobe! View Full Post
Now this might shock you considering I put out about, ooh, one whole post a month these days, but blogging is not my full-time job (or anything remotely close). Instead, I earn my
wine tokens money by working in the marketing team of a large hairdressing company, which means that although I usually look like a hot mess, I’ve learned a thing or two about hair. And as sharing is caring, I thought I’d share some of these handy tips with you.
If you’re anything like me then no matter how many shopping sites there are out there, you could still always do with one more. Yes we have the likes of Missguided, Boohoo and Pretty Little Thing, but one more tab open on the screen never hurt anybody, did it? Luckily, I’ve discovered three new brands that are already pretty big on Instagram and are sure to become household names soon.

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.

Now, you all know that I’m usually all about the positive vibes. Aside from when I have to drive past a cyclist or see shoes made out of denim – ugh- I generally avoid negativity and focus on the good. However, I do think there’s a time and a place for some constructive criticism, and a beauty blog seems like just that. I’ve recently found myself a little less than impressed with a few products in my makeup bag, and now that they’re used up I had two choices: 1. shake my fist at the sky, throw them in the bin and spit on them (dramatic), or 2. take some snaps, talk through why I was unhappy with you guys and then pop them in the bin sans-spit (sensible and mature).
