Sleep – How to Nail That Bedtime Routine

Sleep – the universal activity that all humans need to survive; an essential activity to rest and recoup the body and mind. With the average adult recommended to get between 7 to 8 hours of restful sleep per night, for a poor sleeper like me, this requires a lot of commitment in a carefully timed pre-bedtime routine! If this scenario sounds familiar to you, or you’re also a poor sleeper/insomniac,

Things to keep you occupied this May!

This is not the best of post, just more of things that I have been enjoying over the past month that are going to see me well into May, being that it is nowhere near summer weather here in the UK ( I mean we had hail stones on May Day!). So with sandals, sunshine, picnics and BBQs in the near distant future, here are my recommendations for the imminent

Awaken those taste buds at Rawduck Hackney

I’m a fully fledged breakfast girl. I need my fuel and those precious few moments in the morning over a cup of tea to get me set for the day ahead. I’m that much of a breakfast girl that I actually feel unwell if I don’t eat something pretty much within half an hour of walking up. So what happens when talks of brunch start floating around? Well you sleep

Four eyeshadow pots by Ciaté that have made me put that eyeshadow palette away!

It’s quite rare these days that I step away from an eyeshadow palette. It’s not the colour or the pigment that wins me over but the pure convenience of having a selection of colours at your fingertips that you can mix and experiment with.

The post lunchtime gym session moisturising fix!

When you work in the industry that I work in, you’ll grasp that there is A LOT of chat over fitness, wellness, fashion – mainly our shopping addictions – beauty, food, and dry skin (or ‘skin flake’ as we often refer to it). It is not uncommon to see a stampede of Sweaty Beatty leggings power walking out of the office at 12pm sharp ready to burn some serious calories

There is nothing more indulgent than sitting in bed with a hot cup of tea or coffee, surrounded by papers, magazines and books – simply the perfect lazy Sunday morning followed by some brunch. So, in case you’re looking for some reading inspiration, below are some of the books that have turned me into a bit of a book worm this past month. The Girl Before by J P Delaney

Oh K! Fruit Enriched Peeling Foot Mask review.

Everywhere you look, someone is raving about Korean beauty! And now I’m about to turn into one of those people. With cute packaging and eye-catching colours, it’s hard not to pick something up although after looking at the price tag of a few items, I quickly put them back down as quickly as I picked them up. Oliver Bonas is one of my favourite high street shops and on one
