My top tips for contact lens wearers

The day I got my first pair of glasses was magical. Although I desperately don’t want to reference Twilight here the book does describe the feeling of new sight so well when Bella first transitions to becoming a vampire and sees so clearly for the first time (Watch it here, skip to 3 minutes in). That’s how it felt to…

My promise to the planet

For this year’s earth hour I am making a promise to the planet. A promise to use less plastic and find re-usable alternatives to common plastic products. By 2050 there could be more plastic in the sea than fish! Even time I visit my home-town seaside I see the effects of this first hand, from fishing wire to sweet wrappers, plastic…

Fitness on demand with ESquared – a review

I’ve only ever held a gym membership once in my life, an expensive twin membership with my mum to our local health club.

The reality for many, however, is much different. My kitchen and bathroom are little more than a cupboard in comparison, with enough space to make them functional but far from the showrooms advertised online.…

Netflix series you need to be watching

I was definitely a latecomer to the Netflix party but now I’m here I don’t ever want to leave. Living on a budget in London comes with some sacrifices, we don’t have a tv and so all our entertainment is streamed off my laptop, though I’ve got my fingers crossed for a 4KTV Panasonic if the universe is feeling extra generous.?…

Just another spring wishlist

Although as I write this post the snow is still melting on the ground I’m confident that spring is on its way and my wardrobe needs to be ready for it. I’m not a massive colour kind of girl but have been loving pieces with bold colour accents as well as the usual pastel colours of spring. Without further ado, here’s…
