Money | Hacks to Save Money Shopping

Money | Hacks to Save Money Shopping Purse Magazine Glasses MacBook

One of the hardest things I've found with saving for a house and paying off debts is curbing my shopping addiction habit. Previously I was spending quite a lot when really I didn't have the money to spare and to just go cold turkey on that was pretty much impossible. So I found a way to be extra thrifty with my shopping. It works even if you're not saving or paying off debts and just want to be really thrifty too.

Cocktail Recipe | On Wednesday's We Drink Pink Gin

Gordons Pink Gin Fizz Cocktail Recipe Duo with Sorbet

Recently I have had major urges to watch films from my teens including Princess Diaries, John Tucker Must Die and Mean Girls. I'm not sure what it is that is giving me these urges, hormones maybe? The forever changing weather? Or potentially just a need for some girly indulgence where I can sit and recite the entire film.

Fashion | Summer Shoe Staples

Summer Shoe Staples Nude Shoes

So this might be a little late for the season but I thought I would share with you all the staple summer shoes which have seen me through the season. British summertime is always a struggle with the weather as you can put on your sandals, take 10 steps out of the house and be met with a downpour of rain. If you follow me on Instagram then you will know from stories that British summertime weather is the pain in my summer shoe style backside.

Bristol | Going to new heights

Bristol International Balloon Fiesta

I know that I am totally biased when it comes to my home town of Bristol because I really am a champion for the city. It is diverse, cultural and vibrant. It has so many amazing events, which I'm sure other city's do have and do well, but Bristol always seems to play the trump card.

Beauty | My Everyday Make Up Besties

My Everyday Make Up Besties

When it comes to my daily make-up routine I like to keep it minimal, simple and fresh. Not to mention I like to be out the door within 45 minutes of waking up. I tend not to focus too heavily on eyes with just a swipe of mascara and maybe some eyeshadow, my main focus is normally skin. The three products below are my everyday make up besties that I use everyday without fail.

Blog Help | Tips for Blogging and Working Full Time

Tips for Blogging and Working Full Time

Like many bloggers, my blog is a hobby so I have to work full-time alongside it. I'm also on a five year pathway to achieving a Bachelor of Science degree so study part-time too. All three, work, study and blogging take up a lot of my time and I often get asked just quite how I manage it. Well, the truth is I don't always which is evident from June's lack of posts when I was drowning in assignments. I do still try and aim to post on the blog twice a week, which is usually successfully done so I thought I'd share some of my tips for finding a good balance.
