The kitchen for me is definitely my favourite place in the house. When we were house shopping last year, if the kitchen was small or ugly it was a definite no. When I imagined us in our own house, I always pictured a lovely big spacious kitchen with everything organised. I love cooking and I cook every night, so the kitchen for me is an important spot in the house. It’s always the gathering point when we have guests round for parties and the place where the cocktails are waiting and the buffet is displayed. If this is the case for you also then you may wonder how you can design a kitchen that’s fit for these purposes.
Breaking News!! I’m going vegan! Yes, this cheese loving, Nandos addict is attempting the big change. Now, everyone who knows me have said that I won’t last longer than a day. Please guys, have a little faith in me. But to be honest, I do understand where they’re coming from. I do love food, all food, of any kind. But I am actually going to try this and see how I get on. Today is day two of vegan life and I’m feeling very positive about it.
It is definitely easy to get into unhealthy habits with your lifestyle. Recently I’ve a lot of plans lined up every weekend, which either involve eating out at restaurants, or drinking alcohol at parties. This 100% can take its toll on your skin. Dermalogica retailer Pure Beauty examines what effects our lifestyles are having on our skin.
I’m one of most forgetful people ever and if I haven’t written something down then it is 100% erased from my mind. I always have to make a checklist if I’m going somewhere or otherwise I’ll arrive, with half of the items I should’ve packed still at home.
Most places you’re going, whether it’s on holiday, or just a weekend away from home, it tends to be okay if you forget something as there’s shops nearby to grab the essentials. However, when it comes to festivals, you really are screwed. Stuck in a field, in the middle of nowhere, in need of whatever it is you’ve left at home and no way of buying anything.
I’ve always absolutely loved cooking, from a young age it has always been a passion of mine. I love trying new things and pretty much like all kinds of food, I’m not fussy at all. Except onions in quiche, I feel that is the only thing I can think of that I wouldn’t want to eat. However, during the week I tend to make the same two/three meals over and over again, I know, very boring….
Now this has to the best ever trend to come around! I do like getting dressed up and going out, however I much prefer throwing on my ‘gym clothes’ and being comfortable. Leaving the house in leggings, T shirt, trainers (and most of the time even a sports bra) is my ultimate favourite outfit. Leaving the house in ‘chill clothes’ and not taking ages to get ready is just exactly what I like.

After moving home from London at 18 and getting a job I decided to buy myself a car. I’d been saving during my time at sixth form and always seemed to save any Christmas or birthday money I received. When I was in Sixth Form a lot of people were bought cars for their 17th and 18th birthdays or for no reason at all but everything I have I’ve saved for and bought myself which I personally think makes you appreciate things more if they haven’t been handed to you on a plate.
I’m not someone who refuses to leave the house without makeup, I wear it for work and going out but I do love having a fresh face and being able to rub my eyes without getting mascara in them. I do have a makeup routine which I follow step by step using my handful of my favourite products. I never vary this routine unless I’m going ‘out out’ and then I will use eye shadow and false lashes.
After finishing sixth form, I decided not to go to University, unlike the majority of my friends. I didn’t like the thought of choosing my lifetime career at the age of 18 when I wasn’t 100% sure what I wanted to do as a job. I didn’t want to waste 3/4 years of my life doing a course for the sake of it, just because it was the next step to take after sixth form. After humming and harring about what to do, I ended up making the most spontaneous decision I’d ever made, and moved almost 300 miles away to London!
