I feel like I've been cheated of Summer this year. The weather has been all over the place for one thing, frequently giving us what seems like four seasons in a day, and even when it does stick to one, it seems to be going more for dull and grey than bright and balmy. I’ve… Continue reading With the rest of Summer…
I spend a significant portion of my time on my phone. It’s more than I would care to admit, that’s for sure, and it’s also more than I want to. I while away hours a day in scrolling and tapping, but I’ve noticed a worrying theme recently; I am completely failing at keeping in touch… Continue reading It’s easier than ever to keep in touch – so why am I so bad at it?
I remember using e.l.f products while I was at university, and let's be real; it's because they were cheap. When I say cheap, I mean like the same price as a VK for a mascara, so you didn't have to give up one or the other; you could have nice lashes AND get sloshed on… Continue reading Rediscovering e.l.f; Beautifully Bare concealer stick and High Definition powder
Isn't it wonderful when you put on an item of clothing and instantly feel great? Those moments have been rather lacking for me recently, as I'm in a sort of limbo right now – we've moved out of one flat and are waiting to move into another, so I’m writing this from my parents' house,… Continue reading The dress that made my day
Last week I posted part one of a two-part post on the Norway in a Nutshell tour that I did a couple of months ago while we were in Scandinavia (it's taken me ages to get round to writing about it, sorry). This will be part two, where I'll cover the second half of the… Continue reading Norway in a Nutshell part 2: Flam to Bergen
Yes, that's right, I've used a Little Mix song title (with a one word difference) as the name of this blog post. Entirely intentional I assure you, and feel free to sing it because I totally did. So let’s talk about my legs. They are my biggest physical insecurity, and just writing the sentence before… Continue reading Shout out to my legs
Scenic railways, a fjord cruise and picture-perfect landscape; Norway in a Nutshell is the most popular tour in Norway and it’s easy to see why. It covers a LOT, including two of the must-dos in the area - the Flam Railway and a Fjord cruise - so it's perfect for those with limited time, and… Continue reading Norway in a Nutshell part 1: Bergen to Flam
In case you haven’t noticed, there are a lot of retailers having their summer sales right now. This is great (unless you happen to have bought something at full price very recently which is now a lot cheaper) but I’ve had to ban myself from them because I realised that I turn into some kind… Continue reading Confessions of a girl who lost her mind (and her money) in the summer sales
I’ll say this at the outset; I LOVED Oslo (probably wouldn’t be doing this post if I didn’t, would I). It's beautiful, there's plenty to do, and it's one of those places that just has really nice atmosphere. Here’s why you should put it on your travel wishlist.
Since I’ve now been blogging for 3 months or so and am just about in the swing of things (although I don’t know if I will ever get used to the levels of tired involved with doing this around a day job), I thought it was about time I considered what my aims are for… Continue reading My blogging goals (and they aren’t numbers)
