This prediction I reaaaaally hope comes true. I'm a big fan of bright colours, rainbows and all that jazz. I've seen a great emphasis on unicorns and mermaids lately, and we all know how much I love unicorns..


Why I’m now a Summer gal rather than a Winter gal

Chill Insurance

 For most of my life, I’ve always thought I was a Winter kinda gal. I still love the cosy nights in, the hot chocolates, the winter clothing, the German markets, Christmas, my Birthday, the list goes on… But, this year I realised that the Winter makes me kinda depressed and down, and seriously unmotivated. I think I might have a case of SAD! So, when Spring arrived I couldn’t be happier, just seeing the sun makes me more motivated and more energised, I can’t explain it. It’s a mahoosive and weird change for me, as I normally love staying in with Netflix, crappy food and a big chunky knit and fluffy socks, but last year I hated doing that every single night, it depressed me and I got seriously bored. I craved for the day where I could leave the house and not be cold. And now the time is here, all I wanna do is sit in a beer garden and go for nice country walks. Who’s joining me?!


Discussing Blogger Bitchiness ft Mental Health

This post is inspired by the lovely Ashleigh's blog post, all about how she's sick of bitches on the internet. This topic has been running around my head for a few months now, and after reading Ash's post I decided it was time to write it. When I first started blogging in 2012, there wasn't such thing as blogger bitchiness (well, if there was I wasn't aware). Everyone was focused on building everyone up, commenting on eachothers posts and generally having #GirlPower. But recently, I swear as soon as I open up the twitter app, I'm bombarded with bloggers having bitchy comments at eachother. Whether it's direct or indirect, and the best bit is, most of it is petty shit.


A Trip To The Stable - Birmingham

The Stable Birmingham

The Stable Birmingham

Me and the boyf were invited to review The Stable* restaurant in Birmingham. I was so blady excited as I've always wanted to visit, but just never got round to it! We decided to go on a Thursday evenig as it was a bit quieter, but to be honest, it was still very vibrant and busy! Guess that just shows how good of a restaurant it is eh! We were greeted by the lovely Becca, who would be our host for the evening. She really made sure we felt comfortable, gave us all the information we needed and she was super friendly and smiley! 


What I've Learnt About Myself So Far in 2017

I kinda wanted to do a more 'old-school' kind of blog post. When I first started blogging 7 years ago, I used to just blabber to it like a diary, sat with a cup of tea and bullet point everythanggg. So here we go, I've bullet pointed what I've learnt about myself so far in 2017:

5 Ways To Make Sure You're Safe In Your Car

Slater and Gordon

I have been the proud owner of my little car for 2 years now and can’t believe how reliant I have become on it to get me from A to B on a daily basis. But I must admit driving in a big city like Birmingham (have you ever wondered how spaghetti junction got it’s name!) every day makes me prioritise car safety. It can be like wacky races during rush hour and unlike Penelope Pitstop, I aint got the anthill mob to get me out of a fix! However, I am fortunate that my lovely Grandad has always been interested in cars and a visit to him is not complete without him checking my oil and water. However, if you do find yourself in an unfortunate accident, Slater & Gordon* are your guys! I have put together my top 5 car safety points which hopefully may be of use to any of you who drive or are learning to drive, or even just to remind myself some days!


4 Ways To Update Your Bathroom

Pebble Grey

As seasons and trends change, it's easy to start tiring of your bathroom decor. Completely redecorating can take time, effort and money but there are other ways to get a fresh look. Upcycling has taken off as a recent trend, it involves DIY to give your furniture a new lease of life. This proves that even on a budget and with limited skills, you can create unique items from your furniture. There are other ways to keep your home on trend and just updating your cabinets can make a huge difference! So I thought I'd tell you guys my 4 fave ways to update ya bathroom..


Threads Beauty: Eyelashes Review

Threads Beauty

Even though I am blessed with naturally long and thick eyelashes (not tooting my own horn here), I still love to put on fake eyelashes. They just make me feel more put together, ya know? I'm pretty sure I'm not the only gal who feels this way! Yes, I still haven't mastered how to easily put falsies on, but at least I've mastered how to put them on evenly. I think...


Can A Hair Straightening Brush Really Straighten Your Hair?

Irresistible Me Hair Straightening

I have been graced with frizzy, tangled and knotted hair. It takes a hella' lotta product to tame it (see this post), and about 30 mins with the Tangle Teezer. Even then, I can never get it perfectly straight. So, when Irresistible Me got in touch asking me to try out their straightening brush, I couldn't say no!


OOTD - Casual Monday

I'll about starting fresh at the start of a new week. What's better to start a new week with a comfy yet stylish look? After all, comfort is key! I find I work a lot better when I'm comfortable, so I usaually just chuck on a t-shirt jeans and a pair of comfy trainers. I've been obsessed with this Unicorn T-Shirt* this month, as everyone who knows me well knows my obsession with anything unicorn related!


How to Stay Happy, Healthy & Stress Free

Phizz Tablets

Now, before I start, I am by no means a health/stress expert. This is just what works for me! Recently I've hit a bit of a slump. I'm in my final semester for my degree, and although I am on track with my uni work, I can't help but feel about bleugh and stressed about my degree and where my blog is going. Basically, I just can't wait till May 13th hits and I can get into the working world and focus on what I actually want to do! But, for the mean time, I've dealt with my stress and the overwhelming feelings by using these few tips..


How Rush Birmingham Transformed My Hair

Rush Hair and Beauty Birmingham

Probs for the past 2 months, I've had gross, dry and ridiculously knotted hair. I've threw my hairbrush at a wall numerous times, made my friends, my mom and my boyfriend de-knot my hair (whilst swearing profusely). Basically, my hair was just getting ridiculous and a hella' lot painful. So, when I was invited to have a hair cut by Rush in the Birmingham store, I immediately said yes and wanted an appointment ASAP!


5 Ways To Treat Yourself This Valentines Day

Treat Yourself Valentines Day

Yep, it's that time of year again. Valentines Day. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of Valentines Day I always think it feels forced & is just a big money maker. But, I still love to go out for dinner and treat myself and the boyf on Valentines Day so hey ho, guess I do like it! Normally, this day is about treating your loved ones, but as you do this all year (well, you should do), I personally think you should treat yourself into buying some new items that make you feel good or even having a relaxing pamper day/evening to clear your mind and focus on yourself. 


I Don't Care Anymore

River Thames

I recently just watched Mark Ferris' video on 'Why I Don't Care Anymore', and it kind of sparked a light bulb in my head. I used to care so much about what people think of me, what people thought of what I did and people's reactions to my actions, especially on Social Media. It used to get me so down and it made me feel so anxious. It also stopped me from doing things I wanted to do, in case I got a nasty comment. I even stopped putting tweets and blog posts out in fear I'd get ridiculed for it at college/uni.  


9 Ridic Things That Have Made Me Cry Whilst On My Period

Things That You cry about on your period

As gals, we all know that the time of the month brings spots, binge eating, crying and pain (and if you're a lad, stick with this post as it'll probs make you realise what hormonal weirdos we become when our period comes to visit). Personally, when I'm on my period I literally cry or get annoyed at anything. It's true, just ask the boyf lol. I've been thinking for the past few months, that it might bring some humour to peoples lives, to write down the ridiculous things I cry about when I'm on my period. So, I started writing them down on my iPhone notes and here we are. And, if you don't find it funny, at least I've humoured myself..

1. I couldn't find a matching sock. Yep, really. I sobbed and sobbed, until I just had to wear two odd socks. What a disaster.


My 8 Goals & Resolutions for 2017

Watkins Publishing

Here it is, the time for those good ol' New Years Resolutions! I had a pretty good 2016, considering how shit it was, and you can read all about that in my previous post all about my year last year. But, this year, I want to carry on bettering my self. I feel I done so well last year, considering I was in such an extreme Mental Health rut over the past 3 years. So, now I'm in an even better frame of mind, I feel that 2017 is my year, and I can tackle anything that comes my way, and really reach my goals! 2017 I'm comin' for yaaaaa.

1. Drink More Water
I reaaaally don't drink enough. I think you're supposed to drink around 2.5 litres a day, and I probs drink about 500ml a day at a push (I know, slate me all you want). I think my skin and energy levels have really suffered from it. I've bought myself a fancy (lol) litre bottle from Primark, which should hopefully encourage me to drink 3 litres a day! Booooom.
