I love where I live. I’m close to the coast and also the city, so if I want to escape or immerse yourself in the hustle and bustle, or chill out with a gorgeous coastal walk. I’m lucky enough that I can jump on a Metro and find myself in either destination within half an hour. I get the Metro almost daily, whether it be going to work, for meetings or visiting friends. It’s such…

We’re officially in November, entering the party season and scouring Asos for some new clothes with a hint of glamour for the festive period. It’s time to step up our hosting game and have our friends over (because you know, it’s way too cold to leave the house). Rekorderlig got in touch with me and asked if I’d like to host my own Swedish dinner party and show what types of food I’d pair the…

Inclusivity is something I’ve always been aware of. See, when you’re born differently you become aware of how the world can be pretty unfair and see it through different eyes. There are just those things that you process differently. It doesn’t matter how you’re different, you just know. If you didn’t already know, I was born with a facial disfigurement called Cystic Hygroma, which I still have now. It’s super rare and it meant my…

There’s one thing that really plagues our lives. Sugar. It’s everywhere and we really can’t avoid it that easily. We probably (well, at least I do) consume way more than I need to and it’s becoming a real problem. I just really love sweets, okay?! This is where this blog post comes in, Nestle has launched 30% less sugar in some of my favourite sweets! They recently sent me some to try and I’m actually…

It’s not really that often that I believe in fate, but sometimes life just works out in a way that you think it’s a little bit more than pure coincidence. A lot of my life is like that with music, it seems I stumble across musicians at just the right time. Rewind back four or so years ago, walking down Northumberland Street¬†and in front of M&S my ears were drawn towards a particular sound. I…

We all have those weekends where we’d much rather sit in our pyjamas than go out. I do love going out with my friends and taking the time to get dressed up, but sometimes a simple night in can be just as good. Armed with a Netflix account and some Night-In staples, I know just how to make my cozy night in a perfect one. Step One: Snacks No night in is complete without a…

When you grow up, and you’re born different to everyone else around you, you learn early on to embrace the differences. To accept who you are, be whoever you want to be and learn to love yourself. ¬†However, there’s always that aspect of you that wishes you didn’t have to suffer the pain anymore. You’ll always be petrified that you’ll have to go through it again, because life just isn’t that certain. Anything can happen.…

Every single summer I’d look forward to brand new stationery for going back to school. It’s actually probably one of the only aspects I miss about the place. My mam would go mad with the amount I’d spend on expensive fine liners, highlighters, pencil cases (I had a new one every month), erasers and more. When you’re 13, your stationery says a lot about you – especially the pencil case. It was the only form…

Living the life of luxury is usually all but a dream, but for a night I got to experience VIP treatment at the Hilton Hotel Newcastle Gateshead. Filled with champagne, amazing food and a spa, it was the evening fit for a princess. It was a pleasure to be able to review a hotel in the North East. We checked in at 3pm and I was quickly whisked away to my room. Situated on the…

It isn’t hard to find a women that inspires, and it usually starts from home. I’m so lucky to have grown up with inspiring women all around me and it has shape who I am today. I continue to be surrounded by women who are doing outstanding things with their lives and spurring me on to do the same. The new friendships I make are different now, it’s not based on interests – it’s based…
