Are you ever too old for Work experience?

18622335_10154465653936373_2328347357753723469_nI’m just coming to the end of a months internship, and I’ve been feeling really lazy in terms of blogging. I think it might be the thought of sitting down day after day searching for any possible hope of a paid job that really makes me not want to even look at my computer let alone touch it – so I haven’t.  Continue reading

Try a Tea Time Tasting

I was thinking the other day about how often through our lives we stick with our safety zones.

We know what we like and what we don’t like, and we begin to set ourselves boundaries. I do it. I know that if I’m ever eating out I tend to order the same things – especially if it’s a curry or Chinese take-out, because I know I like them.

Why risk trying something new that I might not enjoy? Continue reading

Home Tours: Hampshire Cottage

I’ve just begun a month internship in Hampshire so I’m staying with family friends who have kindly agreed to grin and bare me for the duration – brave people, I know.

Now I’ve been here for a week I’ve started noticing the various bits and bobs that look amazing around the house and gives me all kinds of feels.

Is there anything better than accessories that work with a house?! Continue reading

I was listening to a podcast recently during which it was said that finding three positives every day, even on the crap days, can really change your minds negativity.

So I decided to give it a go starting today. It was meant to be Monday (yesterday), but I decided to write that day off as a practice. Okay, I decided to sleep and eat bad food instead of blogging – don’t judge me. Continue reading

15107341_10153963386076373_3928062401790352197_nWhilst travelling the Thai islands I had heard a lot about the diving schools in Koh Tao. It’s known for being the easiest and cheapest place to qualify as a certified diver. Now I know that usually suggests that the quality of the diving school is poor, but I’m happy to say that was not the case.

I didn’t have a lot of time to shop around and decided to go with Crystal Dive; a friend’s recommendation who had been there a few months before. Continue reading

I do only have little lips, but that doesn’t mean I can’t dress them up a bit. I mean they’re not THAT little, but don’t expect any Kylie Jenner pouts here. Sorry.

I’ve never been a big lip product kind of person due to cold sores. I went through a stage of anything that would go near my lips used to bring out a cold sore and it felt like I couldn’t get away from them.

It’s only been recently that I’ve started to use lipstick again, but already I’ve found a few favourites for both day and evening wear. Continue reading
