20-something wine-downing, cat-snuggling, over-sharing, reluctant "grown-up".
Come along for the ride!
One of my biggest insecurities is my teeth. I’ve had braces twice but the little buggers don’t want to stay in their place, and with paying for a wedding, I can’t afford to get them done beforehand. So while trying to love (or at least accept) the little gap in the front and the slightly goofy look that comes with it, I knew I wanted them white. The problem with that is knowing where to start!
I’ll be honest, when YeeRah slid into my inbox and asked if I wanted to review their new menu (note to companies: always yes!), I couldn't for the life of me recall having ever seen them before. It wasn’t until we went the escalators in Liverpool One and I saw the restaurant that I remember passing by so many times thinking “Ooh, that place looks good”, before being boring and going with a trusty often-visited place instead.
You all know how much I love Homesense, so when they offered me a giftcard to check out their new ranges in store, I was over the moon!
Because the summer is creeping up on us, there are so many garden items that are new in and I was set the challenge to look for things that could work for doing up our garden (eventually! Come on good weather and motivation!) as well as potentially the wedding too. With the wedding being outside it ties in perfectly, so here is what I got...!
This is the slightly crappy, intense one. The normal hilarity will return next time, but I felt it important to get this bit out on paper (or pixels) to give a true and honest representation of the whole condition. TW: rape, abuse, police incompetencies etc.
I'm a veggie for a whole host of different reasons, but animal welfare is a pretty huge one. So it would seem silly for me to not try to make cruelty-free choices when it comes to my makeup and beauty choices. After all, I'm against animals being bred and slaughtered for my tummy, so why would I want them to suffer for my face?
Steven, my future husband, is a very attractive man. The most attractive, I would say, and when we first got together, I was insatiable. We would rock up to everything, slightly late, with sex hair and that glorious haze that follows new couples around post-coitus. It was amazing. He was amazing and, fuck it, I was amazing too. Everything was wonderful.
If you follow me on Twitter (which you totally should), you will have seen that last Thursday I passed my driving test! At the age of 25, and having had my provisional for eight years, I passed on my first attempt with 5 minors. Yes mate.
I am an unashamed over-sharer. Whether it be ingrown hairs, repulsive (but hilarious) farts, or embarrassing moments, I’m not afraid to have a chat about the things that others shy away from. I’m not sure why this is - perhaps I just have no shame - or where it stemmed from, but one thing I have noticed, is that for every one person who is horrified and vows never to speak to me again, there are several who find it hilarious and one that finds it useful. That’s where the idea for this series came from.
I feel that this is a running theme in my world. Like, what actually am I doing with my life?!
The answer at the moment is working too much and neglecting my poor blog(s) and Youtube channel. When writing is your job, and you make vlogs for a client, it's easy to forget about the OGs like your own personal blog - which is exactly what I have done for the past year!
A few weeks ago, I reviewed the Mad Beauty Advent Calendar which was full of make-up gifts. Today is the 12 Days of Christmas Beauty Advent Calendar, which is completely different but utterly adorable!
