#BloggersFestival 2015

So, as many of you will know, in addition to running my blog – I also organise several blogger and journalist networking events throughout the year (you can read more about this here). I started putting them together on a smaller scale about three years ago, eager to meet other like-minded writers, in turn banishing the feeling of turning up to future brand events feeling like a complete lemon and not knowing anyone. Several years on and they’ve been vamped up a notch, with brands coming on board to provide activities and a larger venue to host the hundreds of…

Neville Hair & Beauty, Knightsbridge

Located just steps away from Knightsbridge station, among the glitz and glamour of Chelsea (yes, it does exist almost exactly as shown on the popular E4 show) lies Neville Hair & Beauty, the secret (or not so secret) little black book contact that everyone in the ‘know’ simply refuses to give up. A firm favourite with celebrities all over the world – who may or may not travel hundreds of miles in order to make their hair appointment, refusing to go anywhere else – it’s the ‘original pearl’ in a sea of salons and provides a welcoming, friendly atmosphere for customers looking to…

IBS Diet Overhaul

As you might know if you follow me on Instagram, I’ve recently undergone something of a diet overhaul. My chocolate cheesecakes and cheesy pastas have been replaced with ingredients I hadn’t eaten heard of until a month ago.

In aid of this, I thought I’d put together a little post regarding why I’d done this – in the hope you might be interested to have a read yourself or see what I’ve been up to. It all started with York Test, an allergy and intolerance testing…

IBS & Getting Through

April was IBS Awareness Month, and this has spurred me on to talk about my personal experience living with the condition a little more. It is a rather embarrassing problem to talk about – characterized by periods of diarrhoea, constipation, bloating, nausea, tiredness and severe abdominal pains, however it is something that affects 1 in 5 of us in the UK – and surely with so many suffering in silence, it’s worth talking about and breaking down the stigma. I kept my IBS a secret for 6 years, with only my close family knowing about it – however last year,…

Living with IBS

I’ve spoken about IBS before on my blog – however as far as health related content goes, I’ve been a little quiet recently. I had an overwhelming response to my IBS and Anxiety series last year (which you can read here, if you like) and it helped me immensely to understand that I wasn’t alone in suffering. However, since then – my posts have been fairly infrequent. I’ve been having a bit of a tough time generally, which has led to a massive flare-up, not just affecting my life intermittently, but every waking moment – even disturbing my sleep on…
