Advice to My Younger Self – Lessons Learnt So Far

My Thoughts

I am 22 years old, and although that may not sound old enough to have very much hindsight and retrospect, I made it through my teenage years and I experienced a lot. I have learnt many lessons in the (relatively) short time I have lived, and if my advice and guidance can help even one person on their life journey then I’m happy with that.

BLACK IS MY HAPPY COLOUR! – How to wear black through the summer months:


It’s mid-July and with highs of 30+ degrees, you might think it would be ridiculous to try and style black outfits. Black is not a colour typically associated with summer – it’s more of an autumn/winter thing. Summer months are for yellows, blues, greens… Actually pretty much any colour other than black!

But sue me, I’m a rule-breaker!

How to be Happy – Six Fundamental Rules

My Thoughts

I think I speak for everyone when I say that, at the end of the day, all we really want is just to be happy.

Happy people live longer – this is a fact. You can quote me. I also truly believe in the law of attraction, which essentially means that the happier you are and the more positive energy you put out into the world, the more positivity you will attract. So happy people live happy lives, and negative people, well… they don’t!

Social Media – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

My Thoughts

Hello and welcome back to another episode of ‘thinking out loud’ (I think that’s what I am going to call these little ranty opinion pieces…) do you think Ed Sheeran will mind?

Today I really want to talk about social media, and the amazing but also devastating impact it can have on peoples’ lives.

So get comfy because I have a feeling this could be a long one!

Social media platforms are incredible. Things like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. They keep people connected, and they help people form new connections. They give people a place to be authentically themselves, a place to express their opinions, their style, and their ideas about life. It’s amazing and honestly one of the best things to come out of the internet (other than internet shopping, which is also pretty great).

The Ordinary Skin Care – My Honest Review

Skin Care

In this blog post I am going to be reviewing The Ordinary skin care products, as well as their make up range. I have tried LOTS of their products now, so I will be posting my honest opinion and rating each product out of 5.

For those of you that don’t know about The Ordinary, erm, where have you been?! This brand has been everywhere recently and has really taken the skin care industry by storm. Part of the Deciem group, their tag line pretty much sums them up “Clinical Formulations with Integrity”. They specialise in high performance, specifically targeted skin care treatments – they have a scientific approach which means that all of their products look like they have come straight from the lab. Which isn’t a bad thing – in fact it makes the brand more appealing in my opinion. There’s no fuss, no fancy scents or unnecessary ingredients. It’s not supposed to be indulgent, it’s just supposed to work.
