The Body Shop: Store Restyle and Product Preview

Wednesday, 29 July 2015

I think the first thing I ever bought from The Body Shop was a hairbrush. It was pink and yellow with a polar bear on it and I thought it was the bomb. Fast forward about ten years I never would have believed my first blogging event would in fact be at The Body Shop store in Meadowhall, Sheffield. A look at their restyled store and a sneak peek at some new products. As I walked into the store I was greeted by the cheerful body shop staff I hoped I looked sassy, calm and like an established blogger (whatever that looks like?) but really felt quite hungover and a little nervous.

Why I Loved #KimNoFilter

Thursday, 23 July 2015

Kim Kardashian a name we all know and all love to hate or hate to love. Known primarily for presenting her life to us on TV and did someone mention a sex tape? I’ve always thought it interesting that on Keeping up With the Kardashians Kim doesn’t come across as the larger than life brunette Barbie doll who takes herself nearly as seriously as Kanye that the media portray. Okay maybe she can be a slight drama queen and she has a ‘Glam Squad’ and naming her child North West didn’t exactly help her on how seriously she brands herself. Nevertheless I genuinely believe she gets a lot of stick in the press unnecessarily and she still wanders around in her pyjamas with no make-up on like we all do and that is why her recent shoot with Vogue Spain was actually pretty genius.

Pootling Around Padstow and Other Cornish News

Saturday, 18 July 2015

It’s the penultimate evening of my week in Port Isaac, Cornwall. It’s so easy to forget how beautiful England is and Cornwall really makes me appreciate this. I’m currently writing with a glass of Merlot looking out to the Port Gaverne cliffs which frame the idyllic Cornish sea. The only thing that bursts my novel-written-scene is that I have The Millionaire Matchmaker on in the background but I’m a twenty first century writer and have a slight reality TV addiction.

What They Wore: Wimbledon

Friday, 10 July 2015

It’s that typically British fortnight of the summer. A glass of Pimms, maybe a spot of afternoon tea complete with strawberries and cream and a tennis match…or six hundred. I have to admit I’m not a big tennis fan. I don’t massively follow Wimbledon but you just can’t argue with the spirit that it brings. And I’m definitely not arguing with all of the chic outfits on display in the audience. Wimbledon calls for sophistication and maybe just a little summer playfulness and year after year celebrities don’t disappoint. Here are a few of my favourites from this season.

 Last week my boyfriend George*, his mum, sister and I trundled up to Whitby, North Yorkshire seaside town, to spend some time in the sun and eat too much ice cream.

*George requested upon reading this that he be known to you as ‘Lord George’.
