For the fashion conscious, there can often be a great deal of pressure to stay up to date with the very latest style trends and ideas. Of course, if you are into fashion, this can be exciting and interesting, allowing you to discover fresh new concepts, designs and developments, but it can also bring a downside – the financial aspect.
I bloody love Winter. After Autumn, Winter is my second favourite season as I adore the cold and thrive in these colder months. I love wearing cosy jumpers, freezing cold walks with the dog, hearty food which warms your stomach, all the twinkling lights and starting my Christmas shopping. Although I’m not mad about Christmas Day too much, I love the Christmas and Winter ‘aesthetic’ – it’s truly the prettiest and cutest time of the year. So I’ve put together a little Winter wish list of things which are super cute which I would love to own this time of the year. You can find links to each product below! Happy shopping!

For people like me who aren’t raking in thousands of pounds each month, it can be incredibly difficult when you want to show someone you care about them when you don’t have the money to spare. I treat my mum, dad and boyfriend on their birthdays and spoil them as much as I physically can without being unreasonable but for the rest of the year, I simply can’t afford to buy things for people on a whim or book tickets to see a show as a surprise or anything like that. It’s a shame but obviously that’s reality for a lot of people – unless you’re Zoella and have all the money in the world to spend on others without being in financial difficulties yourself (no hate towards Zoella here, I admire her greatly as an entrepreneur).
I’m a keen series watcher and always have been. Most of the time I’ll prefer watching a series than a movie because I find you can get so much more invested in the characters and the story of a show compared to a film (unless it’s like 7 films long cough cough Harry Potter). There’s nothing I love more than finding a brand new series that I’m hooked on from the beginning but there’s also something super special about re-watching your old favorites. My boyfriend and I were talking about our favourite shows the other night which is what prompted this post and I can’t wait to chat shows and series with you in the comments! Here are some of my all-time faves.
When a lot of Brits travel on holiday to Spain, they often do it for the sun, sea and sand. And while these are all perfectly good reasons to visit, there is so much to the country beyond these basics. Dig a little deeper and you will find a country that is rich with history, culture and an incredible love of life.
When I started private counselling for my anxiety, I was in the midst of one of the worst periods my mental health has ever seen. I barely left the house. My thoughts were so irrational. The thought of going anywhere left me in a state of dread and that first therapy appointment? My gosh, I thought I was going to die. But starting private therapy was invaluable for me; my counsellor and I got along really well, I trusted her and felt I could fully open up to her. She really did help me in so many ways and I often wonder where I would be today had I not gone to see her in that time when I was so desperate for anything to help numb these unbearable feelings of constant dread, anxiety and fear over everything and nothing all at once.
There are many different types of holidays and destinations across the globe and one of the most popular are beach breaks. Spending a couple of weeks lounging on soft, white sand and enjoying a good book and better cocktails is a better way than any to spend a trip away from the difficulties of life at home.
Finding paradise is not an easy feat, especially when your idea of paradise will differ hugely from the ideas your friends have. But if there is one place long-haul that can absolutely be called paradise, it’s Thailand. Beaches, culture, food and fun are all part and parcel of a trip away here, but try not to go it alone. Part of the fun of a decent holiday away is going as a group and enjoying exploring new places and trying new foods together. Finding the best spots away is easier with companies that specialise in Thailand Tours & Travel – G Adventures. There’s no need to wonder about the best places in Thailand to go when you have the right company on your side to organise it all for you. Continue reading
I’m not writing this for your benefit. I doubt you’ll ever see it. I’m writing it because I feel I need to for my own sake. I feel like I need to, to finally get all my thoughts out and in a way, find closure. Because that’s all that’s left now, isn’t it? There’s no salvaging this one anymore.
I decided to go ahead with a “bit of everything” Q&A today and I have a bunch of questions below, which came from people on Twitter, some serious, some really, really not. I always enjoy doing random Q&A type posts sometimes for no other reason than I can’t think of anything else to write but I do enjoy reading them as well as you always learn something new about the blogger behind the blog!
