VEGANUARY: MY EXPERIENCE

Hello everyone!

Today I thought that I would share my experiences with Veganuary that I took part in last month. This is something that about 3 years ago, I would never have thought I would have done, however after coming across a lot of bloggers, vloggers, documentaries and my own research, I have seen that there are lots of benefits to becoming Vegan. I won't delve into them now, but I will leave some resources at the end of the post. In August 2016 I tried being vegetarian for a month and actually really loved it, and whilst I hadn't been strict for the last year and a half, I had dramatically decreased my meat in take. After really over eating at Christmas, January was the perfect time to start Veganuary.

GETTING MY MOJO BACK


Hello Everyone!
I hope that you are all doing well. Today I wanted to write about how I'm going about getting a bit more of a "pep in my step" this year. Unfortuneately, just before Christmas, I found myself feeling very uncomfortable about myself, my looks, my personality and my abilities.I found myself constantly worrying about not looking good enough, not being talented enough or having a bit of a rubbish personality. Those that know me, will know that this is pretty rare for me. Usually, and for such a long period of time before Decemeber 2017, I am pretty confident in myself and who I am as a person. I don't normally let things faze me and just go about life as best I can. Obviously, I had my down days too, but last month was one of the first where I just felt awful, low and lacking in energy for an extended period of time (which was actually awful as Christmas is my most favourite time of year).




HOW TO HAVE A GOOD START TO THE DAY

Hello everyone!
Happy 2018, I know we're already 2 weeks in but better late than never. I haven't really set any new years resolutions this year - just a set of goals that I would like to accomplish by the end of the year (I might write a post on this!) ,However, I am trying to focus on keeping up the good habits that I started in 2017 as I was definitely making good progress by the end of the year. One of these is my morning routine habits that I feel set me up for the day in the best way. I've found these really useful so I thought that I would share them with you today!



A WEEK IN MALAGA


Hello everyone!

So this post is quite long overdue, but I really wanted to share it with you all. At the beginning of September, my boyfriend and I travelled to Malaga in Spain for a relaxing week away. I hadn't really heard of this place before until I watched a vlog by Louise Pentland who went there herself. Automatically I knew that this was the perfect place to pick for my boyfriend and I.

CAN WE SAVE MEN FROM THEIR NO. 1 KILLER?

Hello everyone! I have a bit of a different blog post for you today. One of my last university assignments for second year was to write a feature article for a magazine. Since this is what I want to be doing for a career when I graduate I was extremely excited for this project and decided to do it on a topic I feel extremely passionate about. Ths assignment gave me so much stress trying to find interviewees and making sure I had all the facts right for such a sensitive topic but I really found it rewarding in the end and wanted to share it with you all - not least because this is a topic that needs to have awareness spread about it.



OOTD: SUMMER PICNIC

Hello everyone!
Feels like such a long time since I have posted my outfit! However the other day, I was wearing an outfit I loved in a beautiful location and I couldn't resist! 


A WEEKEND IN COLOGNE

Hello everyone! 
I can't believe its already August! I feel like this year is flashing before my eyes - probably because life has literally been non stop since 2017 started! One of the main things that I can say about this year is that I have definitely caught a bit of a travel bug, I've already written about my trip to Budapest which was so fun, and then in June, my family and I took a little weekend break to Cologne in Germany.
