How To Pack

As I am writing this blog, I am sitting in a room of boxes ready for moving things across to the new residence. The whole prospect of moving to a different part of London is so exciting but it does come with a lot of stressful times… and part of that includes the mammoth task of packing. For a one bedroom flat, we didn’t think we had a lot of belongings but even we are struggling to find enough hours in the day to get everything done. That said, working as a team has been so lovely… as well as playing music in the background to dance along to whilst putting things into boxes. Continue reading How To Pack

The Perfect Pamper Evening

An evening to yourself… your choice of film, pamper products at the ready, your choice of dinner…. bliss! Sometimes we all need a little pamper and time to let our thoughts feel less cluttered, as busy millennials. As much as I love to be around people, sometimes an evening to myself is all I need to feel more relaxed and refreshed. Then, I can enjoy meeting up with friends and family all the more. For me, when I visit people I like to be dedicated to giving them my full attention and so that can be quite exhausting when you have a busy multi-tasking brain. Here are my tips on how to have a perfect evening. Continue reading The Perfect Pamper Evening

How To Spend A Weekend In Brighton…

Brighton is becoming one of my favourite seaside getaways. Being around an hour travel from London by train, it makes it the perfect place to escape for a weekend. I recently went to Brighton for a birthday surprise planned by my boyfriend and it was so lovely and relaxing. We had been to Brighton before and so knew a few places to visit…. which mostly involved eating, relaxing and strolling along the beautiful pebbled beach. So, I thought I would write about my top picks from spending a weekend in Brighton. These I think you will like… Continue reading How To Spend A Weekend In Brighton…

How To Budget

I feel like I am an expert at budgeting now since changing my career path a few years ago. I have always been a savvy person but until recently I have not had to be so cautious of what I spend. Now, I have to budget a LOT so that I don’t run out of money each month. I don’t have a massive pay check to live on. Hopefully this will improve in the future but until then I thought I would share my tips on how to spend smart and make sure you know where you are at with how much you have left in the bank each month.

Instagram… Life Behind The Lens

When we look at an Instagram snap we immediately see all the good in someone else’s presented life. The truth is it’s not all that rosy. Behind your favourite Instagrammer are problems similar to your own but they just don’t choose to share that with you… so it all looks perfect. Life behind the lens can be very different. People quite rightly want to present their life in a positive light. Even the top bloggers have things going on in their lives. Continue reading Instagram… Life Behind The Lens

Summer Goals

I always like reading other people’s blogs about their goals and how they are planning to achieve them. I feel like there are so many things swirling around in my head at the moment and I feel writing them down on “paper” will really help me to achieve them! I’m not saying I will achieve all of these ideas but it’s at least something to aspire to and it helps me focus on what I need to do to make them happen. I hope you enjoy reading these types of posts as much as I do… Continue reading Summer Goals

March Favourites

March has been a great month. Spring is finally here and I’m loving the fresh and sunny days we are having in the UK at the moment. A lot of my favourites are a mix of beauty and food this month.

On another exciting note, I went to my first blogging event this month and although I could only make the end of it, it was so amazing to go and also to meet other bloggers!

A Spring Clean Wardrobe

Sorting out that cluttered clothing can be a daunting task but I finally got around to looking through my clothes and giving my wardrobe a tidy. If you are anything like me, you will have a lot of clothes! I don’t know what’s wrong with me… I just seen to accumulate them. I haven’t actually bought many clothes in the last year but when something fits and there is nothing wrong with it I can’t bear to part with it! There are even things that date back to my school years in my wardrobe…. which was quite some time ago now! However, I thought enough is enough, let’s sort this out… Continue reading A Spring Clean Wardrobe

The Ups And Downs Of Working From Home

Most of the time my working life is pretty varied. I work from home and I also work around London. I teach violin and I work on my blog and so my CV is pretty ‘pic n mix’ but I love it. I used to work in accounts but since then I have changed from an office job “9-5” to a flexible way of working. But what is it like to be self-employed? Is it better for you? I thought I’d share the pros and cons of being self-employed with my experience of both worlds… Continue reading The Ups And Downs Of Working From Home
