Hey my lovelies, how are you all? It’s been ages since we had a catch up and I shared a little bit of life lately. So let’s do it – you make the coffee, I’ll slice the cake! Being a Girlboss (most of the time) On an average week I work a full time job (doing my best to Girlboss it) then in the evenings and on weekends I produce 3 blog posts a week. I also travel around the country for blog events or to catch up with friends. Most of the time this non stop hectic lifestyle is… View Post

It hasn’t escaped my attention that the 90’s are now back in a big way. Chokers, all black everything, tees under slips and ankle boots. This is one fashion trend that I can most definitely get on board with! Somewhat depressingly I was around the first time this trend was in, though back then I had very little money and no sense of personal style. If you’ve watched Stranger Things, then think of Barb.

Every so often I head down to London for a day out with my friend Fran and being avid foodies we always try and find a delicious venue for a chinwag.

The Liz Earle skincare range has taken on something of a cult status in the beauty world in recent years.

As a result over the past few weeks I’ve ramped up my skincare routine to previously unseen… View Post

Now that I’m in my 30’s I’m beginning to notice changes in my skin. It’s thinner around my eyes, more susceptible to creasing and when I frown the lines on my forehead don’t always smooth out again. (Note to self – stop frowning Laura!). I’ve tried lots of different creams promising to ‘turn back time’ and whilst I’ve found some brilliant ones that do help, I’ve become more open to exploring clinical treatments for longer lasting results. I’ve got nothing against anyone who wants to go down the surgery route but it’s definitely not one for me. The thought of… View Post
