My Must-Have Summer Beauty Essentials

So, it’s official. Summer in the UK has finally arrived. And despite last week’s heatwave instigating a number of frustrated groans coming from my general direction (ahem, we’re not equipped for 32 degree heat unless we have a pool in the garden and a cocktail in hand), inside I was revelling. Are we finally away with the rainy afternoons and dull, dark evenings? Is a long, hot summer of social barbecues and ice cold concoctions at swanky rooftop bars ahead? Er, that’s a rhetorical question. Because I’m not quite ready to check BBC weather yet (I think those clouds look darker…

The Blonde Edit: 3 Summer Trends You Need to know about

This post is a paid for advertorial in collaboration with L’Oreal Professionnel. How often do you change up your make-up? Chances are, it’s pretty frequently. If you’re anything like me, then you’ll switch up your blusher, bronzer, eye shadow and lipstick to suit your outfit and match the season.

There’s something so wonderfully magical about summer. Something that brings out the best in all of us, even if it’s just the little things. It brings people together, takes us outside and forces us to connect with our world. As you might be…

Why style transcends trends

I’ll be completely honest with you here. Despite being a full-time fashion and lifestyle blogger, I know very little about fashion. I wouldn’t consider myself trendy, nor particularly stylish and I truly believe I’ve made so many faux pas that I should win some kind of award. I will never let myself forget the time I turned up to a family outing at a garden centre in a black leather skirt, knee high fluffy boots, a feathered jumper with a sequin rabbit emblazoned on the front and an equally flamboyant headband. I thought I looked like Blair Waldorf. The pictures…

How to be your own Wonder Woman!

I’ve always been very hard on myself and for so long, I thought this was a positive attribute of mine. I believed that by not celebrating my successes and instead, pushing harder for more, I would motivate myself to achieve and be a better person. Tough love, as they say, is sometimes needed. However recently, I’ve come to the conclusion that while a little self-assessment is necessary, being consistently self-critical is actually counter-productive. It was a session with a therapist that opened my eyes to just how self-critical I actually am. “Don’t you think you deserve some kindness?,” I was…
