Easy Ways To Save Money When You're Shopping Online

I have a love/hate relationship with online shopping. I love it because I can literally do it at any time of the day, in my pyjamas whilst eating a tub of Ben & Jerrys. But it's also the reason I'm constantly poor. Because what do I do whenever I'm feeling down in the dumps or just a bit bored? I'll have a leisurely browse of the Topshop 'new in' section and abuse my bank balance in the process. So, if you're a fellow online shopping addict, here are a few easy ways to save a bit of money in the whole process...

What To Expect In Your First Few Weeks At University


Sooo, it's the last week of September and, probably, the first week of university for many people. Unless you're one of those lucky ones you doesn't even start until October! Or an unlucky one who started at the beginning of September. Either way, if anyone is heading into, or in the middle, of their first few weeks at uni - here's some of the things you can probs expect...

Why We Should Embrace Change

I'm scared of change, terrified even - there, I said it. I like my routines, I like being in my 'comfort zone' and I just hate the thought of not knowing exactly whats around the corner. But I realised recently that, if you're not totally happy, then change is actually really necessary and there's no need to be scared of it at all. In fact, we should embrace it. Here's a few reasons why which, hopefully, might help anyone else out there who's contemplating making a change (however big or small) and needs a lil bit of reassurance...

9 Topshop Pieces You Need In Your Autumn Wardrobe


Now we're officially in a new season, I feel like it's about time my wardrobe reflected that. Out with the old, in with the new and all that. I talked about starting a capsule wardrobe a couple of weeks ago and I've slowly but surely been adding some bits to it but there's still room for way more key pieces yet. I've become obsessed with checking the Topshop 'new in' section at the moment as their Autumn additions are seriously on point. Like, honestly, I want it ALL. But I've restrained myself and picked out just 9 pieces that I really love and think are perfect for any Autumn wardrobe...

18 Reasons Why Autumn Is Awesome


It's official: Autumn is here. Although, to be honest, it basically felt like Summer ended weeks ago (or like we never really had one!) Overall, I really like Autumn. I mean, there are shit bits like having to defrost the car, piling on the pounds because I can't say no to whipped cream on my PSL and an increase in the old electricity bill. But then there's the good bits that make Autumn pretty awesome, which I thought I'd share with you today. Apologies for the super cliched photo, by the way. I wanted one of pretty, brown fallen leaves and all that jazz but, since we're not quite at that stage of the season yet, you'll have to make do with an Autumnal Starbucks cup instead...

Where To Get Blog Inspiration From

Ironically, I'm actually writing this post because I've been completely uninspired with blogging lately. I just could not, for the life in me, think of anything to write about for the past few weeks so decided I needed to get some inspo - pronto. So, I thought I'd share with you some of the places I turned to, in case any of you guys are going through a similar situation at the moment...

All About Antipodes

Antipodes Products
Antipodes is one of those brands that I've always admired from a distance. Probably because it's just not as mainstream as other skincare brands like Clarins or Clinique, so  I wasn't completely sure on how well their products would work. However, after trying out a couple of different products from their range, I am completely sold. And, since it's organic beauty week at the moment, I thought it was the perfect time to share some of my favourite products from Antipodes with you because, you guessed it, everything of theirs is either completely organic or packed with natural ingredients...

When You're Too Busy To Blog...

Being too busy to blog is a problem I see people constantly talking about and it can be a real pain in the arse. When blogging isn't your job and is just a bit on the side, so to speak, it can't always take priority and - even if it is your job - sometimes life can just get in the way. I'm in a similar scenario myself, at the moment, so thought I'd throw together a couple of  things to do and what to remember when you find yourself just too damn busy to blog - but don't want to completely abandon your baby altogether...

The Summery Things I'm Not Saying Goodbye To Just Yet

Summer may almost be over and I may have done a post just yesterday babbling on about all the products I'm lusting over in preparation for Autumn, but, there's still some 'summery' products I definitely won't be shunning, despite the new season setting in...

The 'Getting Prepared for A/W' Beauty Wishlist

Now that we're saying goodbye to summer and getting ready for Autumn, I feel like my make up and skincare collection is due a major switch up. I tend to take a 'less is more' approach when the weather is warmer but, as the colder weather sets in, I'm all about thick moisturisers, face masks, dark nails and the ever sought after berry lip. Here's some bits and pieces I'm adding to my Autumn/Winter beauty wishlist...

A Little Getaway In The Lakes

Ullswater Lake
Wahoo, it's Fri-yay! Although, this week has absolutely flown by for me because I've had a bit of time off before I start my placement on Monday. So, since I had a week free, Josh booked 3 days off too, and we decided to have a little UK getaway in the Lake District as we've been itching to have a mini holiday but didn't want to venture too far away...

A Few Blog Organisation Tips

I'm very hit and miss when it comes to blog organisation. Sometimes, I'm like "yes, lets make all the lists and schedule lots of posts" then, other times, I just type things as I go. To be honest, I prefer to be spontaneous usually as I often think I end up forcing posts when I try to think of them in advance. However, if you are wanting to get your arse into gear and be a bit more organised on the blogging front then here's a few tips which have helped me...

How To Start A Capsule Wardrobe


During my (far too regular) Pinterest sessions, I kept coming across a shit ton of pins about 'capsule wardrobes' - and I was intrigued. For a while now, I've been unhappy with my wardrobe and felt like I didn't really like anything in there and wanted to do something about it. Which is why I love the idea of a capsule wardrobe. Essentially, a capsule wardrobe is a collection of versatile pieces - all of which you really love. Pieces that you didn't just buy 'cos it was on sale' and you're not just keeping 'incase you lose 10lbs next summer'. It does mean that you may have a much smaller wardrobe, yes, but everything in there will be able to be mixed and matched with each other and put together to create various different outfits. So, I decided to make this a new mission of mine: to get rid of all my old shit and create a dreamy capsule wardrobe. Here's some tips on  how I'm getting started with it...

The Etsy Shops You Absolutely Need To Visit


It's official: I'm obsessed with Etsy. And I'm probably a bit late to the bandwagon because I only really started to pay attention to this marketplace of dreams about a month ago. I know, who am I!? So, since I now I lose many hours of my days browsing through the various shops within the world of Etsy, I thought I'd share with you some of my fave ones. I apologise to your bank accounts in advance...

10 Things I'd Tell My Younger Self


Admittedly, by younger I basically mean like, y'know, 16. But although 6 years doesn't seem like a lot, in the grand scheme of things, I feel like there's still so many things I'd love to tell my 16 year old self, now that I'm a 22 year old wise owl. So here goes...

Festival Hairstyles With The Glamoriser Free-Styler

When I think about festival bag essentials, lots of things come to mind ranging from wet wipes to dry shampoo to wellies to, well, a tent, duh. But a straightener/curler/any kind of heated hair tool was definitely not on that list. Until now...
