A Ripple in the Ocean – Self Pep Talk

So I’ve moved to London. Perhaps the most daring thing I’ve ever done was commit to renting a property for a year on a temporary two-month intern salary with only the hopes and dreams of a job to rely on. Some might call it a very stupid idea, and I have to admit at times I’ve thought that myself. But…

London Food Month – The Food Truck Festival

  June is officially London Food Month, a month-long celebration of food across the capital. With over 400 events taking place you’re bound to catch one of them and today, after work, I headed over to The Food Truck Festival, at Westfield Stratford City.

Free Returns – this is at the top of my list and is something I wish every…

The Summer Trend That I’ve Been Loving – Bardot

The off the shoulder Bardot trend, however, is one that I have whole heartedly been adoring. Exposing the shoulders and collar bones adds instant femininity,…
