An Advent Calendar with a Sexy Twist…

8th November 2018

When we think of advent calendars, we normally conjure up images of chocolates, savoury treats and even beauty and skincare mini-products. But what about a lingerie-inspired advent calendar? When I heard about the Lovehoney Lingerie advent calendar, my first thought was ‘WHY DON’T I HAVE A MAN FFS?!’ BABY when I tell you that the […]

Balans Soho Society, Victoria

7th November 2018

I’m one of those people who loves to scour the e-pages of Time Out and The Londonist during the week, searching for the newest restaurants to try in a bid to expand my palate and feel all cultured and stuff. However once the weekend appears, I find myself at the same local spots, ordering the […]

Support Black Female Authors

6th September 2018

Recently, I have been absolutely loving the plethora of fiction and non-fiction books that have been written recently by black women, especially within the UK. Throughout history, the literary contributions that black women have brought to the table have often been ignored and it’s such a shame. Black women, our stories, and our accomplishments are […]

WORKING OUT WHEN YOU’RE PLUS SIZE

2nd July 2018

Sooo…for the best part of 2 years, I have actively avoided talking about exercise/working out on my blog/platforms. Mostly because I did not want to deal with comments from HARRRRDCORE radical body positivity activists about ‘feeding into diet culture’ and ‘posting triggering content’, and while I can understand how some content/opinions can come across like […]

Why I'm no longer taking my health for granted

1st February 2018

  I’ve always taken my health for granted, to be honest. Growing up, aside from the Asthma I inherited from my Dad which is well under control and a bit of Anemia that manifests itself via rare bouts of tiredness and cold hands, I’ve always had relatively good health. I’m agile, pretty flexible (you wouldn’t […]

The Gift of Giving with Oxfam

13th December 2017

I don’t know about you guys, but Christmas over the years has become less important to me, to the point where we don’t really celebrate it. Don’t get me wrong, I love what Christmas represents (or what it was supposed to represent in the days before the Argos catalogue), however when it comes to the […]

GET INTO THESE FRAMES THO

28th August 2017

So..I’m kinda new to the whole sunglasses thing. Seeing as I’m someone who wears prescription glasses 90% of the time, the thought of getting sunglasses was something that never really occurred to me for two reasons: 1) sheer laziness at the prospect of having to pay £££ for prescription sunnies 2)I always found it difficult to […]

THE BACKPACK YOU'VE ALWAYS NEEDED

21st August 2017

I’ve been a part of #TeamBackpack for the last 10 years now, as they are just so easy to carry around and they don’t get in the way during day-to-day errands. Convenient. Accessible. Roomy. That’s what I like. Now, I haven’t really been into the whole unicorn trend that’s been sweeping the social media nation, […]
