I am sooo ready for autumn/winter fun! Who’s with me? ☺️Long woodland walks on the crunchy leaves🍁, pumpkin and cinnamon flavoured everything, jumpers, boots, hot chocolate☕️, Halloween fun 🎃 and all the twinkling lights of Christmas🎄..ahh I love it all! This amazingly comfy jumpsuit is by @newlook
and I spotted it in store still at @intumiltonkeynes
just the other day if you fancy it ☺️ #intuMKBlogger
Sad that I only managed to go to 1 out of 4 LFW invitations this time around, but oh well. Here's my OOTD on last Sunday. Still managed to smile in this picture despite feeling so unwell, but honestly enjoyed looking through the "new" @burberry
flagship store in Regent Street, thanks to this awesome staff @al3xng
(who was hogging me to himself up to the 5th floor, aha just kidding. You're an awesome staff, Alex! Love chatting with you. And also, thank you for taking pictures of me)! 😊 #latergram #burberry #lfw #lfw2018 #londonfashionweek #burberrystore

Livin’ our best life 😎🌴 Yesterday I found out I got a $3,000 raise on my check in ONE month! It’s not about luck, it’s about deciding you want to own your time! I rather work wherever whenever I want for 60 hours a week, than 40 hours and for someone else, anticipating one vacation a year. 👎🏻 So many on my team messaged me freaking out! Doubled their checks, raised in the thousands, and THAT makes me know I’m in the right place. We know here that our income is based on US. Not someone else telling you how much you can’t make. Stop watching! You CAN do this! Text “opportunity” to 605-759-7098
Slowly but surely my weight has been creeping on mainly due to stress and worry.
Today signals the start of a new era ( a tad over dramatic) the healthy eating books that I brought and allowed to gather dust have finally come out of storage ie. drawer.
I’m looking to lose 14lbs so any tips would be gratefully received! ❤️
Is being too positive making me unhappy? My blog post debunks why I currently feel like my positive attitude can also be a flaw (clickable link in bio} #happyselves
Still swooning over the facades in Monte Carlo. Can we paint our house pink please?? And add some window shutters, balconies and charming decor? In fact, let's just buy a house in Monte Carlo...#whenwearerich #montecarlo
We went to the new local Creams dessert place last night. I had this Oreo waffle and honestly I was so disappointed! My waffle looks so PLAIN?! I know you have the choice to add extra sauce etc but I thought it would be a bit more amazing than this 😳 to top it off, the service was awful. The staff were so rude and didn’t crack a smile. The worst part though was the fact they apparently serve all the warm desserts first and then the cold so there were 4 adults that had theirs and my poor little two year old nephew had to watch us eat ours for FIFTEEN MINUTES until his was brought out but only after we’d asked for it twice. Are all Creams branches this dire or is it just our local Hereford one? Honestly had such high hopes! 😩
Before autumn takes over, I thought I’d share some pics of our last summer hurrah - a little family weekend spent by the seaside indulging in all of the things that make seaside holidays so great. Think fish and chips, ice cream, boats, cute cafes and a toddler in a stripy dress!
A new blog post featuring more postcards from our trip to north wales is up this week (click the link in my bio to read!) 🍦☀️🏖 | #visitwales #familyholiday
New Blog Post: this is going to divide opinions, but I don’t care 😁 it’s 99 days until Christmas and I am excited, I’ve started Christmas shopping & the countdown is on 🎅🏻for anyone who isn’t a Grinch, take a read of my blog - link in bio 🎄
she don’t believe in shooting stars, but she believes in shoes and cars 🖤
wearing @misspap #misspapped
Since everyone loves these @newlook
leopard print sliders, I thought it was a good enough reason to upload another photo of me wearing them. I don’t ever want to stop wearing them. But maybe I need to exchange these for some leopard print boots for A/W. 🍁
I wore my super comfortable and stylish @callashoesuk
sandals this weekend. They really are heavenly on the feet and I can’t recommend them enough! You really should check them out ♥️
It’s never going to be linear
But it’s always going to be honest.
It’s National Eczema Week, the National Eczema Society is sharing a lot of helpful tips, information and support. @nationaleczema
Eczema has been one of the things that triggered my realisation that I struggle with Mental Illness. It’s led me down a hole of depression since I was a child.
It wasn’t just the bullying and people’s frustrations around my eczema that affected me. But a huge part has been how having eczema made me feel about myself. It’s been something I could never escape, I can’t just switch off from my skin or throw it to one side, my skin is me.
Escaping mirrors, dreading up waking up in the morning wondering what damage I did during the night, blood everywhere & being in pain.
Sometimes it isn’t as obvious someone is suffering, you can’t judge wellness on how a person looks. Somedays you can manage to paste a smile on your face, sometimes it’s impossible.
Infections, scars and open wounds, it’s totally alien to me how people belittle eczema like it’s just being itchy.
I’m going to spend the week sharing life with eczema, some sensitive stuff but I think it’s important to be honest and create awareness of the reality. ❤️

Give a damn 🙌🏻 sometimes all you need is a sassy white tee to feel on top of the world (inspired by Alex Turner). While I’m here, did you see my blog post on being your own friend? Link’s in the bio 💕
Today’s thought: things are not always as they may appear.
Instagram is 100% not all of my reality. It’s only a snippet, my favourite bits brought together. A place where I get to be creative - an expression of myself. But, I’m definitely not immune to hard times. This picture for example, seems as if I’m having the easiest time in the world keeping this balloon up. But really, most of the time, it was just attacking me and would barely stay up because it was so windy 😂 thanks to my friend @jessbantleman
for keeping up that patience to get this photo for me 😂
Needless to say, instagram isn’t reality. Don’t compare yourself to others on here because we all struggle through real challenges, we just don’t like to post them (they don’t really make for the best photos, now do they?!). But be encouraged by others, keep pursuing your dreams, keep honing in your talent, keep being kind & generous to others. Keep running your OWN race 💖

My relationship with face oils are of the lazy kind. I use them right after cleansing after a very long day or I mix it with a moisturizer when I wanted nourishment without the tackiness. For someone with #oilyskin
, face oils is applied at a specific night for a certain need. .
Using Juniperberry, Neroli and Rose Oils, the Pure Bliss Original Beauty Oil from #skinirvana
promises to detox, rebalance and rehydrate the skin. It works to regenerate the skin and heal any damage from exposure to environmental toxins, as well as the natural aging process.
At the first application, this #faceoil
instantly nourishes and restores the skin. Aside from being chemical free and 100% natural (which I do really adore), it gives you this relaxing feeling after every application. I tried use this twice a day right after cleansing my face morning and night. Applying 4-5 drops of oil and massaging it for 2-3 minutes at night with a jade roller is really the best for my skin. I also like mixing this with a moisturizer if my skin is looking dull, which using happens in the middle of the week. It leaves my skin soft and gentle and I wake up with glowing and plump skin in the morning. For those with dry skin types, this will be a good base before applying a foundation. I also let my friend who has sensitive skin to give this a try and it worked great on her skin.
Today marks the first birthday of my business, the content consultant! 1 year ago today I sat at my laptop for the first time as a business owner, filled with excitement and fear. The life of a freelancer is a rollercoaster, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I get to be creative and learn new skills everyday. Here’s to many more years to come! .
ps. yes I did do my own photoshoot in my garden with a cupcake and candle I bought myself, and yes I did scoff said cupcake immediately afterwards 🐷
Collecting more apples by the postbox from our neighbours garden - my Apple & Blackberry Crumble recipe is done step by step in my highlights! 🍎
I always go back to basics ✌🏼

H E L L O ➰ I hate when people text me “call me”.
You know what I am going to start calling people and when they answer I am going to say “text me” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Then hang up! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s only fair right?
