Why I Chose Apprenticeships Over Uni

At the bittersweet age of 16-18, we are faced with a life changing decision – do we choose Uni life? Or do we just work sh**ty jobs hoping that life will sort itself out? As a strong believer in honesty, I’m going to tell you my story and the amount of times I tried being someone who wasn’t me, a studious life wasn’t the one I wanted – I just didn’t know it yet! When I was growing up I was constantly told that I HAD to go to Uni, to make a name for myself so I chose my…

City Explorer Fashion Outfit

Adventures are all about comfortable shoes, cute hair and a backpack – shared in excitement with the ones that you love. This month, the eclectic architecture and historical beauty took us to London and while we have obviously been to London quite a few times, we have failed to do touristy things like ride the pose for pictures at every attraction. And so, we got up at 6AM and headed to Birmingham to catch the earliest train out to London (which by the way, I booked last minute and I still paid £29 return!). After grabbing breakfast in a small…

Monthly Beauty Picks

Depending on how I feel about life, I will pick different products. For example, if it’s sunny I’m more likely to be rocking a tan and next to no makeup, whereas if it’s cold then you will find me cradling my go-to autumn eyeshadows for a strong smokey eye. #1 Loving Tan in Ultra Dark This month I’m going to start with my all time FAVOURITE fake tan, I’ve been using it for about 7 months and have no complaints so far, it just leaves an amazing tan and lasts about a week for me. There’s honestly nothing I don’t…

Stepping Out Of Sorts

  This last month, my style has been all about trying out new things and stepping out of my comfort zone. I’m soooo guilty of living inside my comfortable walls and only picking between 5 outfits which hide my body rather than embrace it – so I went out and bought something which I would never wear out. A bodysuit. I found this bodysuit in a big New Look in Merry Hill and bought it straight-away. It reads ‘Brooklyn’ in bold white letters and I liked it. I paired with my black ripped up jeans from Topshop amd a long…

Sunday Funday – a grey outlook..

They say that Sundays are days of rest, but for me, they mean a day for luxuries you can’t afford every day of the week. It might be a nice meal out or even a cupcake you can’t have! I spent this Sunday walking around, stopping by a cute cafe to have the best triple chocolate muffin I’ve ever laid eyes on. And I felt pretty great after having that muffin – and because I bagged this amazing waterfall coat for £15 from Misspap. That’s a victory in my books..       Coat – Misspap (get it here) Blouse…

Skin care routine – my way or the …

Everyone knows it’s just a pain at the end of the night to properly take your makeup off, when it means sacrificing time to cuddle yourself up in the warmth and comfort of your bed – butttttttt taking your makeup off in the right way will save you so much time in the future and your skin will thank you for it. So stick with me and let me show you a few hail mary’s when it comes to a skin-care routine! I don’t have a particularly dry or oily complexion, it’s just a mixture of everything throw in together…

New Year’s Resolutions

Did anybody else wake up asking where 2015 went?! Because I don’t even remember getting over Halloween, and next thing I know Christmas.. I’m still getting myself over this fact but I think I’ll get over it sooner if I start looking forward to 2016 and how much I want to progress as a person! I’m going to follow that ‘typical’ list and start with BE HEALTHIER. This doesn’t just mean body but also mind, I want to read a lot more and learn how to get out of always saying yes to everything, which is my biggest problem at…
