Silk-Skin Review!

Yesterday me and my best friend Abby went to the Professional Beauty show in London. I had never been to this show before but Abby had been the previous year so had filled me in and I was pretty excited! I couldn't wait to have a shop around all of the different beauty stalls, meet some new business contacts, build some PR relationships and discover some new beauty brands!

We got to the show as it opened at 10am and straight away got ourselves a free, giant golden Moroccan tan bag which we used to pop our goodies in throughout the day. Walking around the first lot of stalls, I stopped and had my hair done, and me and Abby both got our lips done with a divine glitter lip kit that stayed on my lips for 29 hours without smudging, chipping or smearing! I was beyond impressed and bought four different glitter colours...the best part is, they can also be used on your eyes too! Anyway, that's another post for another day. Today I want to talk about the second product I bought, the Si…

I'd Love You But I Need Another Year Alone

Yesterday was Valentine's Day, a public holiday that people seem to have a bit of a love-hate relationship with.

Me? I love Valentine's Day! I love all of the cute trinkets, homeware and gifts that come out and have no qualms purchasing too much of it for myself, regardless of whether I do or don't have a boyfriend to share the day with. I actually blogged about why Valentine's doesn't suck for single people last year because I was so sick of seeing all of the single people bitch about the holiday, particularly when you know that most of them would think otherwise if they were in a relationship.

I feel much the same this year, of course. It's my second year of being single on Valentine's Day and I honestly couldn't give less of a fuck because I still love the day, I still love buying cute bits like heart shaped candles for myself and I still had a lovely day. My sister and I swapped gifts for each other, spent the day in London together and then ordered a…


I spent the whole of 2016 trying to lose weight, become healthier and fitter, and this is a journey that has continued into 2017 with me- and, I'm happy to report, is going pretty well too! I've written before how I don't struggle to adjust my eating habits, but do struggle with exercise. Thankfully, I've taken up Zumba now and it seems to be working wonders.

In my transformation post the other day, I shared how I struggled to curb my addiction to fizzy drinks- specifically, Coca Cola. I love the stuff and used to go through countless 2 litre bottles a week- which now seems repulsive to me because I can't even bear to think about how much sugar I was pouring into my body! I haven't cut Coke out of my diet completely but I have reduced my intake of it quite drastically, which is sad but it had to be done for my own health.

So, you can only imagine how happy I was when The Juice Shed Company got in touch with me about their Juicy Fuel Cola- a healthy alternative …
