    Dear 15-Year-Old Me

    As 2016 is pretty much here and I am just days away from saying goodbye to my teens for good (eeek, so scary!) I decided to reflect on the past few years of my life and all the things I have learned along the way. I am aware that many of you guys, my readers are teenagers so I decided to offer you advice now. These are all the things I have become wise about over the years and don’t worry, many of them I learned the hard way and because of endless lectures from my mum! Life is full of ups and downs but it’s all part of the…

    Rant Of The Week: The Glitz And Glamour Of Christmas Nights Out

    Are Christmas nights out really as glamorous as we think? Or do we all just drag the sequins, high heels and faux-fur out of our wardrobes to distract from the ever growing Quality Street belly, pickled onion breath and turkey sandwich thighs? Looking around on St. Stephens night I noticed the pub was full of beautiful, dolled-up girls. I myself was even in a gold sequin dress with a bold pink lippie. However, in the eyes of the people around us we may appear to be perfect sparkling masterpieces, but in reality, this is all false. For me, my biggest concern on the night was my hair. What started out…

    Rant Of The Week: The 12 Loves Of Christmas

    Last night I had great fun, I went out with friends and did the 12 pubs of Christmas. Well, in my case it was only the one pub because my bank account couldn’t afford the other 11, and well, you know, I was afraid I might die. By pub three I can assure you it would have been ‘Don’t wait around for me guys, go on without me, but don’t forget to tell my family I love them… ‘ as I casually slide off the bar stool and become a drunken mass of Christmas jumper and mistletoe on the floor. So no, on this particular night I decided to be…

Eyelash tantrums‘I can’t do it, they won’t stick on, the corner keeps popping off, now my eye make-up is rubbing off, he doesn’t love me, I have jiggly thighs, I’m so poor, we’re going to be late. I’M JUST NOT GOING ANYMORE.’ 2. When you don’t look like AdeleIt’s a very stressful time alright, my personal motto…

    Rant Of The Week: Sleepless Outside Seattle

    After spending a lazy Sunday watching films, one struck a chord with me more than the others. This film was Sleepless In Seattle, a movie being all about love and signs. Due to this, I am now here at 12:30am, being very sleepless, outside of Seattle, believing watching that movie tonight was a sign in itself. I have known about this film for years and had seen it in bits and pieces over the years, but I had never sat down and properly watched (or totally over analysed) it until tonight. For any girl that is a complete hopeless romantic like me, you need to get your best friend over…

    Rant Of The Week: It’s All Over For Another Year!

    All of the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! fans know it wouldn’t be Christmas without the run up filled with cockroaches, animal testicles, and a load of random Celebrities thrown into the jungle, and this year did not disappoint! I am absolutely gutted tonight is the final, I feel like the time flew, although, I doubt Tony Hadley and Duncan Bannatyne would say the same… I am delighted with the final three so I don’t mind who wins.

    Do You Have Mr. Big Syndrome?

    Before reading this blog post, ask yourself if you are familiar with the character of Mr. Big in Sex and the City. If not, I would advise you to go and watch all six seasons and both movies, but if you really don’t have time to do all that today then I’ll update you. John James Preston aka Mr. Big is Carrie Bradshaws own Prince Charming. And sure he may have some of the prince qualities- lots of money, fancy suits, and a charismatic personality, but he’s lacking quite a few of the charming qualities. He can never commit to Carrie properly but enjoys stringing her along until he actually…

    European Fashion Styles: Looking Stylish on the Continent

    This is a piece that I wrote about fashion trends in Europe for The Spotahome Blog. Check out their blog for great posts and information about various European cities πŸ™‚ In Europe’s buzzing, ever changing cities, one thing is for sure – fashion never goes out of style.
