Our MINI Adventure: A Beach Stay-cation in Aldeburgh

As much as I love my home, when you live, breath and work there – sometimes, you just need to get away. A change of scenery (for more than 24 hours) helps to refresh the mind, challenge your ways of thinking and inspire your creative patterns. In other words, it’s healthy for the mind and soul – and David and I probably don’t do it enough. There’s something rather freeing about going on a stay-cation, because there’s no scheduled flights, transfers or security checks. You can jump in the car, hit the open road and see where the day takes…

Why We Should Choose Fairtrade for International Womens Day

What does the term ‘Fairtrade‘ actually mean? It’s not a test, don’t worry. But when we were asked that question at an event last week, I’m slightly embarrassed to say that my mind went totally blank. I remember covering Fairtrade at school and appreciating its efforts in making sure that farmers in developing countries were paid fairly for their produce. However that’s pretty much where my knowledge stopped. Naively, I just assumed it was a small initiative that you could search out and buy into if you were so inclined. I guess I didn’t really appreciate the scale of how Fairtrade…

How To Boost Your Make-Up’s Radiance

I’ll be honest with you here, I’ve always been a sucker for high end beauty. While designer clothing has only just really reached my radar (I was never snobby about an all high street outfit), I’ve always saved and splurged on branded cosmetics – primarily because I had such troublesome skin and the more well fitting and luxurious the product, the better it seemed to look. One of my first high end purchases was the YSL Touche Éclat, a cult beauty product for over twenty years – it’s glittering gold packaging and promise of luminous radiance was enough to tempt me…

What to expect as a full time blogger

When I went full-time as a blogger last June, I still couldn’t really explain to the average person (ie: anyone not a blogger) what it was I actually did as a job without an eyebrow raise or two. And that was scary. I completely understood that the digital sphere was and still is, a very new industry. There’s no precedent over what the future holds for it – and so it’s quite a risk quitting the day job and pouring all your focus into your very own online space. But the scariness of a situation has never put me off.…

A Day in the Life: LFW

London Fashion Week this year was a very chilled one for me. I wanted to make the most of the networking opportunities and the fabulous events rather than squeezing myself into every show possible, so I planned ahead, got my outfits ready and purchased my rather exciting new vlogging camera, so that I could capture the day for you all. You can have a little watch of what I got upto here, or you can read on for a more in depth explanation. Because as much as I’m loving this whole new YouTube sphere, I do find that I tell…
