How Everyone Can Benefit From A Personal Brand

Quite often the way that others see us has a very real and direct effect on the way that we feel about ourselves. The fabulous thing about that is that we have almost full control over the way that others see us.

Why We Should All Be Buying Supermarket Flowers

Few things bring me such simple joy as fresh flowers around my home. I recently decluttered my bedside table and moved away the empty perfume bottles, abandoned books (I never get into bed with enough energy left to read) and excess electricals and replaced them with something far nicer to wake up to - a beautiful bouquet of white roses. The best thing about them? They cost just £3.50.

Summer Drinks Done Right

I'm obsessed with this sunshine that we've been having in England. I know that it's probably a product of global warming and thus a hideous sign that the world is ending, literally, but since it's here I figure we might as well enjoy it eh? 

My favourite passtime at the moment is to play hostess and have people over for sunset drinks on our balcony. Why pay ten times the price to stand in a sweaty, packed bar when you can play mixologist in the comfort of your own space? I'd much rather invite people into my home and put the cash towards a new pair of shoes or holiday savings.

Two Minute Banana Breakfast Muffins | Recipe

I'll admit it, I'm not the best at waking up early. The lure of the snooze button is often too much to resist and it's on mornings like these that I'm ever grateful for these quick and healthy breakfast muffins. They take less than 5 mins to whip up and at under 150 cals each, they're the perfect way to start a busy day on the go. Read on for the full recipe.

Morning Luxuries: My Pretty Makeup Setup

One of the ways that I like to make sure that my life feels that bit more luxurious every day is to inject even the smallest moment with an element of elegance. From waking up underneath nice bedding to using a rich, beautifully-scented shower cream to making sure that my makeup desk is pretty and pristine.

Metallic Body Tattoos: The Summer Accessory You're Missing

These gorgeous metallic hand tattoos are the summer accessory that you just may have overlooked and, never one to see an opportunity missed, I had to come on here to bring them to light again, I mean - HOW GORGEOUS ARE THEY?!?! Can you believe this one was only £2.50 and I still have some left. 

Body tattoos were first revived a few summers ago, delighting fellow 90s kids in the nostalgia of pressing a damp transfer sticker to our shoulder and peeling it away to reveal your new temporary 'ink'. Fast forward 20 years and gone are the Chinese symbols and butterflies. Simple brown Henna tattoos of 2014? We're way past that. The gold upper arm tat? That's soooo 2016. Nope, in summer 2017 we're offered ornate hand tattoos in many molten metallic shades that look like luxurious jewellery that has become one with your skin. From beautiful bohemian imagery to intricate tribal sketches and ornate art deco designs.  I, for one, am down.
