Going Bananas for The Body Shop


I have been a big fan of The Body Shop for a long time now and they recently came up with something a bit different that really caught my attention. Banana scented shampoo and conditioner. Yes, you heard me right. Banana. To me banana is right up there with marmite, it seems to be one of the ultimate love it or hate it scents. I personally love it and this brilliant haircare set has become a permanent resident in my shower. It gives me all the summer feels and has been just what I have needed to brighten these grey August days.

August Anthems: A Summer Playlist


I recently talked about my love of discovering new music (read more here), but something that I haven't talked about, and had forgotten about really, is how equally exciting it is to rediscover old music that you used to love. Isn't that also the greatest feeling? I certainly think so. Certain songs or albums can so easily transport you back to different times in your life and I love that music has the power to bring back memories, happy or sad. This playlist is the best of both worlds (before you ask, no it isn't Hannah Montana themed), it encompasses old and new music to create a fun summer vibe, and I can't wait to share it with you.

How I Work Well from Home


I have been working from home now for about six months and I love it. During that time I have learnt a lot about what works and what doesn't when it comes to working in a home environment and so I thought I would share my five top tips with you. I hope that this might help some of you who are new to working at home to focus your time and become more productive. It is worth noting that I am by no means an expert and am still learning myself, but I know if I had known the following when I started then, let's just say, I would have saved a lot of time and got a lot more done everyday.

July Favourites


I cannot believe that July is already drawing to a close, can someone please explain to me how that happened? It has gone by in a whirlwind and along the way I have discovered some really great new favourites that I think you are going to love. I can't wait to share with you what I have been wearing, watching, listening to, reading and just generally loving this month, so let's get started, I mean I have a lot to get through so if we don't get going who knows how long this will take!

Style File: Dots & Pleats


I don't know about you but I have always found dressing for summer really difficult. Here in Britain we are lucky if get a few days of sunshine, so the month long heatwave we have been experiencing has really made me re-evaluate my summer style. Now, don't get me wrong, I love the summer, but I am definitely more of a winter person when it comes to fashion, I am all about the layering and bobble hats! However, over the last few weeks I have had no choice but to venture into my (tiny) summer wardrobe and try to put together some relatively cool but collected outfits, and today I thought I would share one of my favourites with you.
