• Clubbing without Make up on…

    Now… I’ve done this a few times.. clubbing without make up on and it feels … so damn liberating.  I’ve done this a few times.  But after last nights adventures with JS to Berkleys, Delmonicas and Polo. (Documented some of it on my instagram stories – check  it out if you can. I apologise for my horrible singing in advance.) I realised I’ve gathered enough data to accurately report back on how it feels like. That sounds so clinical… because in a way it is.  I was worried that it would only feel a certain way once or twice – or because I felt one way when I was single…

  • The blood test results are in….

    I’ve been back to work for a couple of days now… and after being off for over 2 weeks I am trying to look into the consequences of the blood test results. I had been off with a viral infection.  Although my doctor initially wasn’t sure why I was so run down and achy. She initially thought it could have been glandular fever.  She hadn’t seen me since I went in to get my consultation for my anti-baby prescription several weeks previously.  This is my way of saying am going on the pill so I don’t have any unfortunate baby surprises being in a monogamous relationship with my boyfriend.  Anyways…

  • Is getting a sick line at work a silent taboo?

        That is something that is up for debate … is getting a sick line off work is deemed as a negative or a silent taboo?  What does taboo even mean? It is a word that everyone knows – as in all honesty I am not sure if I even need to explain the meaning of taboo.  We all know what taboo means don’t we? Forbidden, dark… unsavoury. Those are the few words that first pop into my mind when I think of ‘taboo’ … or it could be because I have a very dirty mind and whenever I think of taboo I just go to that side of…

  • My first collaboration with friends…

    As in with my tempo tea girls – my first collaboration and first gifted products… and it was with my friends! 🙂   When JL asked me to help with a fitness shoot for Tempo Tea I was very excited! I have been on a long and somewhat rollercoaster ride of my fitness journey and my friends asking to help them out was a lovely and much welcomed surprise. They asked me about a month in advance – which was amazing because it gave me a chance to get into prime fitness shape – for me.  I had slowly been letting myself slide cause I’ve been procrastinating. I haven’t been…

  • My One Year Blog Anniversary!

    Happy Birthday to Style Irregular, Happy Birthday to SI, Happy birthday to Meeeeee! Celebrating my one year blog anniversary by changing up my site. what do you think?   I’ve been debating changing the layout for a while but I wasn’t sure if I should or if it was the right thing to do … you know the whole if it ain’t broke don’t fix it type of mentality. But it’s been a whole year… a whole 365 days since I started this journey. I figure that since I’ve grown and changed so much as a person and as a blogger that it makes sense to change the layout of…

  • The 2018 Review: Part 2

    And the review continues on… this 2018 Review: Part 2 covers my posts from May to August!    May  The type of love I don’t want…   This post I talk about my first love, HM, and how I was so attached to him. In fact I generalise that nearly everyone feels that way about their first love, because you’ve never been in love before. You have nothing to compare it too and therefore you just fall.  Another fact I bring up is that I love to listen to sad songs when I am writing! Ahaha I have no clue why I’ve always been a person that listens to sad…

  • How a blog post cost me a job…

    GET THE LOOK Earrings: H&M, old. Alternative options here, here and here. Jumper: Primark, can’t find it. Alternative here. T-shirt: Primark Trousers: Zara, old. Alternative here, Trainers: Marks & Spencer, sold out. Alternative here. Photographer: Connull Drummond That is correct… a blog post I wrote cost me a job. And it wasn’t for the reasons I thought it would be…   Ever since I’ve graduated all I wanted was a job in marketing, working for a company I believe in and get along with the my colleagues. That has been my dream when I started and finished my Postgraduate in International Fashion Marketing.  And still is now.  But, like most…

  • How do you know your being brave?

    GET THE LOOK Jacket: H&M Top: Primark Skirt: Primark Shoes: Primark, old. Alternative one here. Socks: ASOS, old. Alternative one here. Photographer: Connull Drummond That is the question on my mind… how is bravery defined? Is being brave something that can be defined with in a blog post? Can you be brave when your scared all the time? I have my own definition of bravery… and that has changed several times throughout the years.  When I was younger bravery was loud, dramatic gestures – like running into a burning building to save someone. Or jumping into a lake to save a puppy.  These are all grand gesture of bravery… for…

  • Should the best defence really be an offence?

       GET THE LOOK Overcoat: Zara, summer sale find. Similar here. Cardigan: Miss Selfridge, old. Similar here. Dress: Next Boots: Zara, old. Alternative here. Scarf: Present. Alternative here. Photographer: Connull Drummond This is following from my previous post. The best defence/is offence mentality is so ingrained in us that we don’t even realise that we are even doing it.    By that I mean we do it before we even realise. The thoughts zip across our mind before we can even fully register it; that is what we are even doing. As I’ve said in the previous post Why am I a no make up blogger? This mentality, of putting…

  • Why am I a no make up blogger?

Alternative here. Trousers: River Island Shoes: Marks & Spencer, SOLD OUT. Alternative here. Bag: Present from Mum (No idea where its from sorry.) Alternative here. Why me doing me isn’t a dig at you doing you. The reason behind me deciding on being a no make up blogger came up the other day at work. Therefore I felt the need to write about it.    I decided to become a no make up blogger… yes thats right. From my…
