Why It’s Okay Not to Stick to a Niche

Hey everyone! If you’ve been following this blog since the beginning, you’ll know I originally intended to stick to themes of beauty and fashion.

February: New Job, New Projects, New Challenges

Hello everyone! Long time no see. So…in case you haven’t noticed, I haven’t blogged for about 3 weeks. THREE. WEEKS.

6 Little Ways to Help the Environment

Hello everyone! After another hectic few weeks (I say hectic, but what I really mean is I was trying to make the most of my time chilling at home…) I’m back in Mexico with A LOT of time on my hands to finally get my sh*t together and produce A LOT of content. So, without…

Last Year’s Favourites

Hello everyone! And a very Happy New Year! 2018, the year we’ve all been waiting for, has finally arrived. I personally didn’t find 2017 as painful as 2016 (a historically awful year by anybody’s standards) but that doesn’t mean I’m any less excited to get on with the New Year. It might be a bit…
