The Gran Canaria Photo Diary

That was all Georiga and I wanted when browsing numerous holiday websites back on a grey day in April. We were knee deep in university work, I was typing out of the last of my ten thousand words for my dissertation whilst trying to plan two more essays, write a weekly academic blog and it just hit me. I needed a break. A break that featured a healthy dose of sun, sea and sand.

Underarm Skincare with Dove

Growing up as a teenager, my one requirement for deodorant was that it would work it’s anti-sweating magic all day whilst I was at school. I just wanted something that worked and whilst I know that the risk of irritation has always been present (we have all been there) it is not something I particularly cared about until recently.

Bloggers Made Me Buy It

Reading blogs is a dangerous business I have you know! Full of beautiful imagery, wonderful words and then, the next thing you know, you have got a wishlist as long as your arm and you are thinking to yourself, ‘pasta for dinner this week then!’.

Beach Ready Nails with Rimmel Super Gel

Gel manicures have hit the beauty industry by storm and it is clear to see why. Beautiful, long-lasting colour finished with a stunning shine you just cannot seem to achieve with your standard polish. I love a gel manicure; I am a classic nail biter so the longer a polish lasts on my nails, the better. Typically, as soon as polishes start to chip or start to look a little on the dull side, that is when the temptation to bite kicks back in so for me, gel manicures are well worth the extra time and effort it takes to achieve them.

Dressing Up Simple Fashion

Dressing Up Simple Fashion

Simple fashion is the dream. The ultimate comfort. Not everything in my wardrobe needs over-the-top embellishment, crazy patterns or some floral print down the side. Do not get me wrong, I adore all that, but mostly, you will see me in much more simple fashion. Excusing the name, there are plenty of ways to dress up simple fashion so you can still wear that super comfy cotton tee with jeans but feel a little more glamourous and Insta-worthy. It’s all in piecing the outfit together.
