The Battle of the Micellar Waters

A few years ago micellar water wasn't even on the radar, apart from for the French - lucky things. However, nowadays it is a completely different story, suddenly it is everywhere and I for one am a huge fan. As someone with super sensitive skin this magic product has been a lifesaver. Why? Because the micelles in the water act like magnets to cling to all the dirt and makeup on your face without you having to rub your face until it's sore! It cleanses and removes makeup all with the swipe of a cotton pad making it easy, quick and soothing. The winning combination. But which of these magic waters is the best? I have put three different brands to the test, using an entire bottle of each (maybe two of some!) to see which one would come out on top... and here are the results!

Style File: Florals for Spring. Groundbreaking.

One of my favourite lines from the film Devil Wears Prada is uttered by the character Miranda Priestly, the editor-in-chief of a high-flying fashion magazine, and is her response to someone suggesting they do a feature on florals for Spring. Her reply? In her classic, sarcastic fashion, "Florals? For spring. Groundbreaking". For me this line sums up exactly how I feel about Spring fashion, which year on year seems to be dominated by pastels and pretty flowers. You all know that I like pastel colours and I am a huge fan of flowers (because who isn't), but that doesn't mean when the sun comes out I want to deck myself out head to toe in 'pretty' because it just isn't me. No thank you! That's not to say that it is wrong to love these classic Spring trends, it isn't, but today I thought I'd share a different perspective. Today let's chat about how I am dressing MY way this spring and how you can do the same.

How to become more confident in yourself

Confidence is something that a lot of people struggle with and we all have moments in our lives when our belief in ourselves will take a hit for one reason or another. Not fun, but probably inevitable and it is important to remember that it's ok! There are things that we can do to help ourselves, and each other, get back up and build/re-build our confidence from that not so fun place - and with that we can all feel that little bit more awesome! On that note, today I thought I'd share a few confidence boosters that have helped me over the years. I hope that these top-tips can help you have a little more faith in yourself - *gotta have faith, faith, faith* - and get your mojo back if you are struggling. So, in no particular order...
