10 Lessons I’ve Learnt In Therapy

I’ve never been ashamed to admit that I’ve spent periods of the last three years in therapy. It’s such a helpful and cathartic experience and one that I’d frankly recommended to almost anyone. Once you open yourself to the idea of it, talking to a professional can make such a difference. Therapy has definitely helped […]

36 Things I Can Now Do

I’ve written before about my experiences with abusive relationships, and whilst I don’t want to dwell on it as I think until recently in lots of ways the aftermath was still controlling my life, I do want to celebrate how far I’ve come. I survived and I’m happy. That deserves a celebration. Today marks the […]

Revolution X Tammi Tropical Paradise Palette

I came across You Tuber Tammi Clarke a while ago when I was looking to break out of my bronze/gold eye shadow comfort zone and try something bright and colourful.

Look Fantastic June 2018

I’m always glad to see a beauty subscription box arrive but this one really made me smile! Mostly because it contained an Elemis product and I’ve yet to find an Elemis product that I didn’t love. The problem being that they are unfortunately currently out of my price range. But yay for Look Fantastic as […]

Surprz Planner Stickers Review

My obsessions with Disney and makeup are well-known, what isn’t quite as well-known is my obsession with pretty stationery. Predictably, I love all things rose gold, pink and pretty especially planners. So imagine how excited I was when I was contacted by Surprz  to try their subscription service for personalised planner stickers. Of course I had to say yes! […]

Empties: Part 2

Dear Absent Father

To paraphrase Carly Simon, you probably will think this is about you. It’s not. I won’t lie, there are elements of your mind-blowing behaviour in this letter, but it’s not just about you because unfortunately there are so many absent, non-paying fathers out there and this is for them all. Dear Absent Fathers, I should […]

My London Photoshoot Experience

I am so unlucky. I’m that unlucky that my dad, who is a whizz on the fruit machines, won’t play them when I’m stood next to him as he never, ever wins when I’m in the room. So, imagine my surprise when I was contacted by the lovely Sareta from Kiki Blah Blah to be […]

Look Fantastic May 2018 Box

I’ve had such a hectic month of preparing to move house, decluttering and frankly just relaxing with my kids that I had completely forgotten about this box until it arrived. And that almost never happens. So, when the postman delivered the Look Fantastic May box, I was pleasantly surprised. Especially as normally I am stalking […]
