10 of the Best Designer Dupes on the High Street

Most of us would love a wardrobe overflowing with Gucci, Prada and that Chloé bag but the reality is that for many such designer labels come at a price that means well…starvation? rent arrears? soliciting? Thankfully that’s where designer dupes step in.

A Really Simple Guide to Using a Bullet Journal for Your Blog

A Really Simple Guide to Using a Bullet Journal for Your Blog

What I’m about to show you below really is bullet journaling in its most simplistic form. I know that some people are total whizzes but I struggle to remember what day of the week it is, let alone to number my pages and keep track of bizarre little symbols and a corresponding key. Hell, you can buy books that tell you how to bullet journal! There are reams and reams of Pinterest pages full of ideas that make me want to run and hide under the bed. It’s just not for me; what I have laid out is a set of 4 easy pages which can be replicated for different months and different purposes.

5 Steps to a Happier Life Online: Banish Internet Negativity

…Let’s face it, the internet is also a bit of a wanker. Whether it’s moany, attention-grabby statuses, the fact that every other person on your Instagram feed seems to have a Gucci Marmont and you don’t or because today all you managed to do was get out of bed and boil the kettle but your mate Susan totally #smashedit.

Why I Am Not Setting Strict New Year’s Resolutions for 2018

Why I Am Not Setting Strict New Year’s Resolutions for 2018

I’m never entirely sure where I stand with New Year’s resolutions. On one hand I love the idea of a fresh beginning, new stationary and a chance to grow, on the other I think January is a pretty awful time to attempt to achieve such things. Lets face it, we’re all a bit fat, a bit broke and wondering whether it’s still acceptable to eat brie and Quality Street for breakfast.

Accepting That I Can’t Do Everything

Accepting That I Can’t Do Everything

I want to do everything. All the time. I want to be good at everything, I want to have at least tried to have a go at everything and I get sad when I realise that I just can’t do everything. It’s physically impossible. It’s a realisation that has taken me a long time to come to terms with and although I know that it’s inevitable that there will still be moments when I want to say yes to things I don’t have the time for I feel good about starting the new year with a renewed sense of focus.

Hosting a Very Festive Bloggers Brunch with HEMA

Hosting a Very Festive Bloggers Brunch with HEMA

One of the best things about the festive season is undoubtedly the chance to eat, drink and be merry with loved ones. I get so excited in the lead up to Christmas, not because of the big day itself but because December means a chance for everyone to come together and make time for each other. It also means Quality Street and Bailey’s for breakfast and let me tell you, I am all about that life. Last weekend I hosted a very festive brunch for a group of fabulous, funny, inspiring women with a table dressed head to toe in beautiful pieces by the Dutch lifestyle and interiors brand, HEMA.

14 Things I Am Loving This Winter

I have been embracing winter in full force this year, even though it’s not usually a season that I’m friends with. When Quality Street and Baileys are acceptable breakfast items and Michael Buble comes out of hibernation, what’s not to love?

Can We Please Stop Pretending to be Busy All the Time?

Can We Please Stop Pretending to be Busy All the Time?

There is a crisis affecting our generation, and it is has to stop. No, it’s not the property market or the fact we spend all our money on avocados and Meal Deals, though I do wish I could solve the former by foregoing the latter. We have become obsessed with being busy. We moan about it, brag about it, feel guilty when we aren’t it and seem to generally feel the need to live our lives at a million miles an hour, fuelled by a Starbucks Venti Pumpkin Spice Coconut Milk Latte and a to-do list so long that it rivals the Great Wall.
