How to stay healthy while travelling

So the past few months have been a whirlwind of planes, trains, beaches and sandy shoes. And I wouldn’t trade in a single second. I’ve strolled along the Miami boardwalk with my girlfriends, enjoyed the sunset on a Caribbean beach with my boyfriend and even taken part in a spot of snow yoga with new friends, high in the Swiss alps. But as much fun as travelling can be, it does also leave you feeling a little bit out of sync. All the time differences, jet lag, dinners out can leave you feeling, for lack of a better word, sluggish.…

April Beauty Favourites

It’s that time of the month again, where I chat all things beauty and attempt to justify the reasons why I’ve spent at least ten hours in April researching, trialling and purchasing a variety of different make-up items. But hey, if you manage to glean a few insights into a couple of new beauty launches, then it’s all worth it? Right? Trilogy Skincare One of my favourite things is discovering fabulous new skincare brands, because as you probably know by now – I have rather troublesome skin that seems to have a dislike for routine, so I often have to switch…

How to spend 48 Hours in Athens

I’ll be totally honest here. Until recently, I don’t think Athens had ever really been on my radar as a city break. Greece as a destination is overshadowed a little by the very Instagrammable islands of Mykonos and Santorini. We sort of forget about what the capital itself has to offer. And this is such a shame, because when I visited recently, my eyes were opened to how much it truly has to offer guests! Beautiful winding side streets filled with blooming flowers and secret restaurants. Centuries old history combined with street parties, flowing wine and delicious food. It really is an incredible place…

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…
