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

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).

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

Go on….Treat yourself!

Today’s post is not about a Day, birthdays, pay day or any other sort of “day”. It’s simply about treating yourself! We often feel that there needs to be a reason when it comes to doing something nice for yourself, or a secret currency exchange that occurs where you tell yourself if you do X then you can have X. Well today, I wanted to throw that notion out of

LFW and The Runway Edition

With London Fashion Week kicking off yesterday for yet another season, all eyes are firmly focused on the runway where fashion and beauty trends are set for seasons to come. My focus today is on the models that walk the runway and how they keep their body and skin looking healthy and fresh. In a recent interview between Rosie Huntington Whitely and Sali Hughes (I’ll link the video below), it

Bioactive Beauty Drinks from Beauty & Go

When you hear the word beauty, what instantly comes into your head? I firstly think of makeup products and skincare purely because I am surrounded by them in my day to day life. But then I think of beauty that comes from within and the beauty that surrounds us. Some of us wear out our Nutribullets by juicing to get our daily dose of our five-a-day, and some of us
