Knowing When It’s Time to Hit the Unfollow Button

Knowing When It’s Time to Hit the Unfollow Button

Something that I have always been a big advocate of – whether you’re an Instagrammer by career, by hobby or by ‘haven’t even bothered to upload a profile pic yet’ – is making use of that big blue unfollow button the moment someone isn’t floating your boat.

That Hotel With a TV in the Bath Tub…

That Hotel With a TV in the Bath Tub…

A few months ago The Arch hotel welcomed me in to starfish one of their glorious king-sized beds and wallow in a bath tub watching the inbuilt tv, a glass of prosecco in hand before awaking the following day to munch on eggs and bacon in bed and catch up with Holly and Phil on This Morning. Or at least, that’s how I interpreted the invite…

It’s About Time We Stopped Using ‘Bossy’ as an Insult

It’s About Time We Stopped Using ‘Bossy’ as an Insult

I think the use of ‘bossy’ as an insult probably falls in the same Camp Bullshit as the ‘she loves herself’ and the ‘she needs bringing down a peg or two’ descriptions. I’m struggling to understand why we as a society feel so threatened by someone who is self-assured. Is it because it makes us doubt our own confidence? I’m not sure, but I think it’s time that we stopped calling one another bossy when we’re not in control of a situation and they are.

A Little Life Update

A Little Life Update

Being a full-time blogger was not something I ever set out to be and when I first started writing it wasn’t even really with the intention of it being read. I feel so privileged to be able to wake up every morning and make a living from something that I actually have a real passion for, which just about masks the ‘oh holy fuck I am actually a real life adult now’ butterflies.

Why Are We in Such a Hurry to Rush Through Life’s Milestones?

Why Are We in Such a Hurry to Rush Through Life’s Milestones?

I’ve recently come to a realisation, and it’s pretty profound. Your life is moving at the exact speed it’s supposed to. I don’t know if I believe in fate as such, but I do think that everything happens for a reason and steps of my life that I’d have happily hit fast-forward through are integral to the person I am today, and to where I’ll be in the future too.

BTS at The Cosmo Influencer Awards: The Glitz, The Glamour and Forgetting My Knickers

A few weeks ago an email landed in my inbox that made me slam my laptop lid shut and proceed to have heart palpitations for the next twenty minutes. I had been shortlisted – out of an incredible 36,000 talented individuals – as Biggest Drama Queen Best Newcomer at the Cosmopolitan Influencer Awards.

I Never Had a ‘Girl Gang’, and it Made Me Feel Like a Failure

I Never Had a ‘Girl Gang’, and it Made Me Feel Like a Failure

I largely floated between various friendship groups, feeling as though I had to choose one to gravitate toward, but never truly feeling as though I fitted in. That sense that I didn’t really belong made me feel very uneasy and I started to wonder if I was missing out on a Sex in the City style squad. I began to crave it, and worse still, I began to wonder if people didn’t want to be friends with me.

My Microblading Experience: What is it and does it hurt?

My Microblading Experience: What is it and does it hurt?

The quest for the perfect brow is very, very real. I blame Cara Delevigne. Eyebrows have the power to totally alter a face whilst simultaneously being a royal pain in the arse; something I mutter to myself as I try desperately to get them looking more like twins and less like distant cousins each morning, a £30 pot of pomade in hand.
