13 Reasons Why We Need To Talk About Mental Health

So like many other girls and guys this bank holiday, I’ve spent 13 hours of my weekend binge watching Netflix’s latest box-set wonder, 13 Reasons Why. Based around the undeniably tragic topic of a young girl’s suicide, it documents the reasons behind her untimely passing and is thought to raise awareness of mental health in young people by providing (in graphic detail, I might add) the story behind her heart-breaking decision. It isn’t based on a true story but of course, for so many people, me included – it does bare a striking resemblance to real life. I’m sure everyone watching…

The Instagrammer’s Guide To Miami

With it’s art deco architecture, Cuban and Mexican fusion cuisine and platinum white sandy beaches, on paper Miami sounds like an Instagrammer’s dream. But I’ll be totally honest here, I wasn’t expecting to love it quite as much as I actually did. It’s telling of how much you’ve enjoyed a trip when the moment you return and flip open your macbook, your first Google search is to check how much return flights are. Em and I made the decision to visit fairly spur of the moment. We knew we wanted a girly break with plenty of sunshine – but equally, somewhere beautiful…

How To Plan Your Thailand Itinerary

Thailand conjures up images of baby elephants, pad thai, crazy Bangkok streets, beautiful beaches and the (in)famous full moon parties. It’s both a relaxing haven for romance and a party pod for graduates. I guess when I visited this time last year, I slotted rather nicely into both categories. David and I wanted a gorgeous relaxing break – our first official holiday as a couple, and yet I also wanted to visit somewhere with lively culture where I could celebrate the end of my University career, no more dissertation, exams or living 100’s of miles away from home. Yipee! And…

How To Afford Luxury Fashion

I’ll be totally honest here. I often stalk handbags on Instagram. Yep, you heard me correctly. I stalk certain handbags (though I like to think, in an un-creepy way) using the hashtags. My stalking sessions can sometimes run up to the hour mark. But I justify my behaviour by reassuring myself that any such expense requires extensive research. In December, I treated myself to two handbags that I’d been stalking for a good few months. I’d be saving up all year and purchasing them was a moment I’ll never forget. I treasure them and wear them on a weekly basis.…

How to Alleviate Stress Even When You’re Super Busy

I am in awe of women today. Absolute awe. A peek into just one industry - the blogosphere, shows a community of hard-working, conscientious and driven women who are utilising the tools of the digital world to create their own fully fledged businesses. And in other industries - women are pushing forward in their careers, all while completely bowling others over with their sassy fashion choices and social lives to rival Carrie Bradshaw. We live in an age where women are doing it all and succeeding (massively) in everything they set out to do. What a time to be alive, eh!
