Am I a Lush Cosmetics addict?

I've been thinking recently about what it actually is that makes me so mad about Lush. Thinking about whether or not it's just a hyped up brand by many bloggers out there (including myself) who snap away and get that gram whenever they take a soak, making me want products, or do I actually love what the products are and appreciate the products for what they do? 
Being a company that don't test on animals is a bonus, and something I'm now trying to live buy as a new addition to my resolutions (post HERE), and knowing I can buy anything under the roof of Lush is just easy. But it's not just the fact they don't test on animals. It's just as amazing how they recycle bottles and make a head scarf out of them, and that you can take your empty bottles in to recycle if you want. There are so many different ways that Lush are trying to help the planet and a reason why I respect and love what the company is about. 

Of course I'm not going to forget about how every…

Sunday kintwear | Fashion OOTD

The perfect Sunday outfit for me, is one thats easy to wear. Everything from quick to get on, comfortable, cosy and just effortless. To reach this Sunday perfection, I like to go for knitwear and jeans. That's just me. I know some of you out there will be like WHAT? Jeans? Yes, I find them one of the most comfortable items. A part from joggers and leggings of course but, theres a time and a place for those bad boys. 


Sunday morning was a bit of a rush if I'm honest as we were off to Brighton for the day and decided to have a chilled morning with a coffee in bed watching some easy TV, so it literally was a grab and go situation. The jumper is one of my most favourite pieces right now and was a Christmas present from my mum. As soon as I saw Lily Pebbles wearing it in one of her vlogs I just had to have it. Anything grey and I'm there really, but, I also fell in love with the knitted pattern and the high neck but seriously, Marks and Spencer is killing it with knitwear right …

What I'll be reading in 2017 | Lifestyle

Reading is something I would love to do more this year as it's been proven to help all sorts of things, but most importantly, a time to relax and get away from the world. Last year my job didn't really allow me to have much time other than school holidays to read, so hoping this year with a new job will allow more reading time. Of course I'll try to read more than this collection, but these are my latest buys and books I was gifted as Christmas presents. 


I treated myself to book one and two of 1Q84 in the latter part of last year (still feels weird saying that) so have only just started it. So far, I love it and it's written in a really cool way and is constantly chopping and changing the focus on the characters and storylines so really does keep you on your toes. Opening book three on Christmas day was a lovely surprise and is making me want to read the first two asap but, its a huge book so will take me ages as I'm a super slow reader....... pass the endless amou…

Career change and my 2017 resolutions | Happy New year

So, its New Years day and the majority of us are sporting a nice hangover I'm sure. I'm pretty luck as I never get hangovers (touch wood) but today I have to say, I feel a little ropey. As its a new year and everyones chatting about their resolutions etc, I thought it would be a good opportunity to share with you guys a little up date and what I'm planning for the new year.


I recently made a huge decision regarding my career, resulting in me leaving the teaching profession. Granted I never thought I would ever do it but health struggles, no professional progression and life/work balance got all too much for me and had to take the plunge. Teaching is hard but my god I was totally in love with it (I still am) but I think it just doesn't feel real yet until later this week when I start my new job. Having danced my whole life and been involved within the performing arts since the age of 4 it's going to be tough for me, I can feel it now. But on the positive side it will…
