It’s official, Spring is here!

Despite the rain I’m just happy it’s no longer freezing cold. March took a wild turn with the weather (hello snow) and I’m sure we can all agree it’s a pleasure to wave Winter goodbye. The longer days have filled me with energy and optimism. I’m ready to grab life by the horns and get things going. This means more exercise and a new food plan, not to mention a few other tricks I have up my sleeve. View Post

Spring is in the air and I couldn’t he happier. That final cold spurt we had a couple of weeks ago nearly did me in. So now that Spring is approaching I’m ready to dive into a new Spring wardrobe. For this post I teamed up with House Of Fraser to create a fresh new look incorporating lighter layers. View Post

Tata Harper Clarifying Moisturiser and Mask Review

Every skin type needs a deeper clean from time to time…

Whether you have spot prone or dehydrated skin I’m guessing it needs some unclogging now and then. Throughout the year my skin falls under the dehydrated category. In the summer it’s less compared with Winter when it’s thirsty as hell. But regardless of which time of year it is my skin still needs some detoxing. I’ve been testing out the Tata Harper clarifying range and I’ve got the low down for you. Tata Harper is a high end line of natural skincare products. Everything is made using ingredients harvested on Tata’s farm in Vermont. View Post

10 things I love to do at the weekend

Two days is never enough…

Working in a hair salon I spent many years working on Saturday’s. This meant Friday night’s out were a no go even though I often did end up going out! I shudder when I remember the commute to work on Saturday morning literally dying from a hangover. It has to be one of the worst feelings in the world, right? So now I’m a lil bit older and no longer in the salon every week I can finally enjoy a work free weekend. Who am I kidding? I’m always blogging at the weekend but when it’s something you love it’s not quite work is it?

lookin good feelin fine teddy jacket

Call me Teddy…

Hello from London! It’s been a very busy 10 days working in the salon every day and catching up with my mates in the evening. If you follow my insta stories you will know what I’m talking about. I’m having so much fun and hardly any sleep! When I get back to Germany I’m aiming for 8 hours sleep a night for at least a week. I managed to pick out some really cool clothes from ASOS and I love everything. This white teddy jacket caught my eye when I saw it. It’s so unusual for me to wear a white jacket. Let alone a fluffy one! It’s really cute though and not at all wintery. I’m craving lighter and fresher things for spring and this feels like a nice transition. View Post
