29 Things In 29 Years!

I've seen loads of blog posts where bloggers talk about their wishes and plans for the next stage of their lives; aka  "20 Things I Wanna Do Before I'm 20" or "30 Things I Wanna Do Before I'm 30" but I don't want to look ahead and plan too much so since I turned 29 at the end of last month, I thought I would share with you a little something different - 29 Things I've Done in 29 Years!

Could you survive on charity shop clothes for a year? | Guest Post

"When I found a jumper for 20p in a charity shop, it turned out to be my all-time favourite piece of clothing and it got me thinking; could I commit to a full year of only buying myself clothes from charity shops? I've been slowly transitioning to a less disposal mindset when it comes to clothes and I'm finally ready to wave goodbye to the high-street, eBay and vintage shops. So, can it really be done? Can I find everything I need in charity shops, regardless of things I'm invited to, such as weddings? I don't know the answer yet, but it's going to be fun finding out and you're invited along for the journey.  In my wildest dreams I hope I'll find something so fabulous that I get the chance to ask, "What, this old thing?", when asked where I got it from." - Amy

Benecos Translucent Powder | Review

A couple of weeks ago, amongst a bunch of bloggers mail delivery, I received the Benecos Natural Translucent Powder* and was truly thrilled. I've been after a translucent powder for such a long time but couldn't find one I liked in my price range so when I opened a package and this dropped out, I'm not ashamed to admit I let out a small squeal.

Are You Okay?

Mental health is still a huge taboo in our society and many people are afraid to speak out about their own mental health problems for the fear of being judged. For that reason, card company Thortful* has collaborated with fashion designer Gary James McQueen, the nephew of the late Alexander, to create a collection of exclusive cards to act as ‘moments of intervention’ to increase communication around mental health.

My Goals for 2018!

I can safely say that 2017 was definitely NOT my year, so much shit happened and I have never been so glad to see a year done and gone. However, on a positive note, I survived everything that was thrown at me last year and I am so thankful to everyone who stuck by me and helped me through it as without you (you know who you are) I wouldn't be here. Don't get me wrong my life is still far from perfect, but I'm happy with what I have and working hard to get where I want to be. Since it is January the 1st, and I've seen a couple of these blog posts going around, I wanted to share with you some of my own goals for this year.
