Celebrate our differences

This is a bit of a random post, but one that’s been brewing for a long time. And it involves opinions. Something that everyone has I suppose, but not all are alike. And I believe, this is something to be celebrated. If we were all the same and upheld identical views and values, the world would be a very mundane place. Maybe the world would be a much kinder sphere as a whole, but we wouldn’t have the wonderful diversity that we have today. We can learn from one another, teach each other, hold discussions and really evoke new considerations about…

Capturing or living the moment?

Blogger or not, I’m sure you can relate to the fact that we now live in an age where if an event isn’t photographed, technically it didn’t happen. We are bombarded with images on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram and even Whatsapp, documenting our lives for all to see.

The city for me, usually is such a hive of activity – with me heading in for meetings or events – so to be able to enjoy wandering round, without any particular rhyme or reason, is actually such a wonderful change. When you’re running late for an appointment or even meeting a friend for coffee, often you don’t stop to take things in – or realise what a beautiful place the capital really is.

My Own Secret Jewellery Box

When it comes to jewellery, I’ve always been a bit underwhelmed. In my experience, it’s either been very expensive and worth it – but as an investment piece, or affordable but stains your skin and falls apart. So it’s either the option of blowing your bank balance on having a few options or having loads of options but having to wash your fingers at the end of the day because they’ve turned green. Yes, really. So, when I started working with jewellerybox.co.uk last year for the #BloggersFestival, it was delightful to come across a brand that merged both quality and…
