Travel Guide: The Amalfi Coast

My trip was in part inspired by (dare I say it) Instagram and the thought of eating yummy Italian food for two weeks. Over the years I’ve been fortunate enough to visit this wonderful country on several occasions and the beautiful images on social media really drew me to the Amalfi Coast. It was idyllic; everything I dreamed it would be and more.

Rather than making this travel guide an essay I thought I’d give you a little snapshot of my two weeks away and the places that I really loved. From the colourful houses in Positano to the Sapphire blue waters in Capri, all the important bits are in here for you to have a look at. Enjoy!

What To Wear Now: May 2018

This month’s ‘What To Wear Now’ post is all about yellow. It’s in every shop window I look in and I can’t stop buying it! All the fashion reports are saying the same thing, that Gen-Z yellow is the new Millenial pink and I think they’re onto something.

Before I started blogging and having my photograph taken I wasn’t that comfortable in my own skin, I was very set in my ways about the colours I wore; black, black, oh and more black. I was hesitant to try new colours for fear of being judged and being too noticeable. Whilst I still dislike being the centre of attention I have a new found confidence which has also shaped the way I approach my day-to-day style choices. With that in mind, here is why yellow is my focus of the month and why I think you should try it too…

Apps I Use To Edit My …

Instagram was part of my life in late 2012, back then no one I knew really understood what it was never mind how to use it. Little did many know, this photo-sharing app would become the platform it is today and a monetisation channel for bloggers like me.

I needed to find my theme; my aesthetic. I’d admired many accounts over the years, they all looked so cohesive, I’d scroll through my newsfeed and would instantly know that it was from such and such a blogger because of the posts’ visual identity.

A year after starting the blog, a lot of trial and error I finally feel that I’ve got there. Of course, it’s an evolution but I do feel happier that my Instagram feed is where I want it to be.

I get a lot of questions about how I edit my photos so I thought I’d share my favourite apps and the specifics functions that I love about them…

Why You Keep Breaking Out

Skin breakouts really are the worst. They love to crop up at the most inconvenient times be it just before an interview or hours before the first date with Mr Dreamboat from Bumble. Whilst my skin does play ball now that I’m in my early thirties (ouch – it hurts every time I say it!) it hasn’t always been an easy road. Like many teenagers, my skin went through a tumultuous time back then and I would LOVE to pick them! These days I suffer from the occasional whopper now and again but generally speaking my skin has been so much clearer in the last few years. Why? Well, a few tips I’ve received through work, from friends and a lot of trial and error.

So, if you’re after clearer, brighter skin, here are a few tips and tricks that may work for you…

Skincare To Fit Your Budget

The beauty market is saturated with products that are boxed in pretty packaging and plastered with extraordinary claims, but do they really work and is it worth dropping the cash for this seasons current must-have anti-ageing cream? Not necessarily, no. A higher price point does not necessarily mean that it’s more effective.

In this post, I’ve pitted similar products against each other, a splurge and a steal, talking about my personal experience with them and how they’ve helped to boost my skin. I’ve made some recommendations about where you should spend your money, taking into account that you lovely readers will have different budgets.

All the products in this post are products which I love; I’ve personally used and that I trust to deliver results.
