10 Signs Your Boyfriend is a Keeper

Image
Dating nowadays is so hard. You have to go through so many stages of 'talking' and then 'seeing each other' and then 'dating' before committing. And half the time, the boys you're talking to bail before you even get further than talking anyway! They either end up ghosting you completely or revealing their true fuckboy colours and forcing you to cut all ties (even if you do end up calling them every time, without fail once you've had a few voddy and cokes- sigh). 
However. It's not all doom and gloom.
If you're lucky, then soon enough you'll find someone you think is 'the one'. A boy- or, rather, a man- who sweeps you off your feet and proves to you that actually, all men aren't the same. The problem is, these guys are so few and far between, how are you supposed to know when you have found a genuine keeper? 
Don't worry, girls. I've got you covered. Here are some handy signs that will indicate to you whether a boy is stay…

DORKFACE Shop | A review!

Image
Jemma, the blogging queen, more commonly known as Dorkface, is one of my favourite bloggers ever. Not only is she incrdibly supportive of everyone, a talented writer and the founder of the awesome community that is The Girl Gang, she's also an incredible artist who creates absolutely amazing and one of a kind products that are sold on her Etsy store. A few weeks ago, Jemma asked me if I'd be interested in reviewing some of her products- and I, of course, jumped at the opportunity! I love all of her products so was thrilled to be gifted some, especially when the package turned up and it turned out everything she sent me were items I had planned to buy anyway! 
The Packaging
Packaged in an envelope with cute stickers on, the actual products inside of the envelope were sealed in a plastic packaging filled with sparkly glitter and brightly coloured, polka-dot confetti! It was basically Jem in an envelope! She left a very sweet note on the front too, which really made me smile- jus…

My Career Plans for 2018

Image
Anyone who knows me will know that I am incredibly career-orientated. I'm all about being a girlboss, I'm always trying to make more money, looking into new business ideas, learning how I can further myself and become better at what I'm already doing. I am definitely a go-getter and that's not something that's going to change in 2018- in fact, it's only going to become more apparent. 
I've got so many ideas whirling around my brain about things that I'd like to achieve over the next year in terms of my career. I'm not going to set myself any solid goals (for one of the first times in my life!) because I don't want to feel disappointed in myself if I don't achieve them. However, I am going to make a list of these plans (in a notebook as well as in this post!) and speak them into existence and just hope and pray that they spring to life!

So, what do I want out of my career in 2018?
1- A book Yep, thats right! I want to at least have started- if…

Flying the Nest

Image
If you follow me on social media, you'll probably be sick to death of hearing about me moving out. Sorry, but I'm not done talking about it- and probably won't be for a long time either! 
Finally, I am flying the nest!
I have wanted to move out for as long as I can remember- since I was about 17. I remember being so determined to turn 18 and thinking that that would automatically make me an adult and able/ready to move out. HA! How wrong was I? I was nowhere near ready, and nowhere near rich enough either! However, a few years down the line I am now more financially secure than I've ever been in my life, I'm in a wonderful relationship with a partner I'm happy to be moving out with and I have just turned 22, so have a bit more adult independence under my belt! (Some might debate this... but I'm gonna roll with it). 
So the time has come...I am leaving home to embark out on my own life with my boyfriend, to start building our lives together, and I could not be …

Why It Might Be Time to Kiss THAT Friend Goodbye

Image
I haven’t even begun to go into what this post is about and already I bet you know exactly what friend I’m talking about. You know I do! They popped into your head as soon as you read the title, didn’t they? Because you’ve been thinking about them for some time now, haven’t you? Thinking about how they add nothing positive to your life, about how drained you feel after spending any time with them and how you just wish…well, that you could get rid of them to be honest!
2018 is the time, sis. You’ve got to kiss that friend goodbye- for good! Do you want to know why? Let me help you out by opening your eyes...

Their presence will exhaust you Their presence will leave you feeling drained, and this will begin to take a toll on your mental, emotional and even your physical wellbeing! Life is far too short to spend it with people who leave a toxic taint on your life. You only want to be surrounded by people who lift you up, make you glow with happiness, give you nothing but love and laughter! …
