Take a day off, I say to my friend. He’s not worth it. If you love it, wear it. Why don’t you just ask your boss about that pay rise first? I’ve got too much to do, I say to myself. Maybe I’m not good enough for him. My legs definitely look fat in this… Continue reading Why is it so hard to take our own advice?
Bergen is marketed as the ‘Gateway to the Fjords’; it's where countless excursions to glaciers, Fjords and mountains depart from, and the ease of getting to some of Norway’s most incredible landscapes was probably the main reason we wanted to go there. The city itself is wonderful though, so it's well worth making sure you… Continue reading 10 things to do in Bergen, Norway
I’m all about buying laundry baskets and toasters at the moment, so more than ever this year August has been the month that I need to make the most of the clothes I already own rather than buying everything that takes my fancy. With that in mind, I thought it was about time I did… Continue reading Making my wardrobe work harder: the floral tea dress
I’ve written a whole post on the reasons why I loved Oslo so much and why I think everyone should go there.

There’s no getting around it, it's almost guaranteed that you… Continue reading Oslo on a budget
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
