Sugar Slug


Hi gang, hows it been going? I've been preoccupied for a while with my Masters (writing about the drug trade and warfare) but now that I'm finished and fully unemployed, I can turn my attention back to writing really important stuff on this blog. Like my drug addition....sugar.

My Living Room Decor


I have been meaning to do this blog post for almost a year now. I think it's high time I showed you around Flat 53. Well, not all of it. Just the living room as that's the only bit I have had a chance to do up so far. I'll get round to the rest of it eventually including #dressingtablegoals (sigh).

How to Kick Start Your Heath Kick



It's January guys and we are over the worst of winter and on the slow walk to summer. Some of you may have piled on a few pounds over the holidays like me (ho ho ho) or perhaps it's January and you have decided it's time to kick ye ol' bad habits.

7 Steps to Becoming Really Good at Small Talk


Small talk can be awkward for a lot of us. I don’t know anyone who has told me they enjoy it or even don’t mind it so, at least we are all in the same boat.

3 Kitchen Tricks to Speed up Cooking


Most nights, once I get back from work, I'm making dinner. I'm no Jamie Oliver but I can't possibly live off takeaways and I don’t think it would do my health any favours (it’s just you and me muffin top. Us against the world).

Busy Girl's Guide to Fitting In Exercise


Firstly, that is me in my happy leggings. I love colourful workout clothes even though I look like the candy floss girl next to all the sophisticated gym goers dressed in black. But hey, as Madonna once said, girls just wanna have fun.

How to Deal With Anxiety


I think everyone feels anxious sometimes. It’s pretty unavoidable and completely normal.

Blemish Buster Face Mask


I've come out with a few spots recently. Generally, I'm pretty lucky and I hardly ever get any spots but when I do, my face never has the decency to be subtle about it. It will always be right in the middle of my forehead.

How to Never Wake up Tired


Is it just me or does it seem to be that no matter how much you sleep, when it comes to waking up during the week, you are always tired!

How to be a Natural Skinny Girl


There are a lot of girls that look like they are just naturally slim. You know the ones I’m talking about. The kind that look like they don’t make any effort to maintain their weight and seem to eat whatever they like and still look great. It’s like a God given talent for them.

Lotions, Potions, Sunscreens and Young Skin


When it comes to looking after myself, I would give myself a 2 out of 10. I tend to stick to the bare minimum. Only urgent and immediate issues get my attention. My skin gets moisturised only because it physically feels tight after I've washed my face (and I have an expressive face; I like to be able to move it) otherwise that probably wouldn't happen either. You can imagine then, that as far as long-term skin care goes, my regime is non-existent.

Taking Up Outdoor Running


Historically, I haven’t been much of an outdoor runner (in my short 26 year history that is). I’d look at people jogging in the rain and think “wow that’s dedication” and then I’d want to go home and have a cup of tea because it’s winter and that’s what people do.

How to Become a Water Guzzler


Drinking more water has been on my “to do list” for pretty much my entire life. We’ve all come across articles explaining how you will die very quickly if you don’t drink water. Clearly, I like living life close to the edge because I’ve spent most of my life drinking next to nothing.

Confident body language: How to Fake it Until You Make it


Some people look really confident, I’m not saying they necessarily are deep down, but they sell it well, while others look nervous and unsure when that isn’t actually the case.

How to Stop Buying Clothes But Having Nothing To Wear


This has to be the ultimate first world problem. ASOS is tired of you and you have no space in your cupboard.  You seem to shop all the time but never have anything to wear! It's a real problem because it wastes your time and money.

7 Day Self - Esteem Bootcamp


Growing up part of an all woman family, like I did, means there is no shortage of discussions on insecurities, we love a good heart to heart.

Dragon Warrior or Dragon Worrier


I am the unsung queen of worrying. I’m so good at it that I could win Britain’s Got Talent if I showcased my skills. In fact, I was even quite a worried kid, so much so that I was given a book called “The Huge Bag of Worries” on my fifth birthday.

My Up-Cycling Fantasy (That was a Bit of a Nightmare)


I visited my family this weekend back in Scotland. I hadn’t been back in a while and mum was on another “I’m going to declutter everything!” rampage. In fact, she was on such a declutter frenzy that she even decluttered me right out the house. I was to pack my bags with all the extra things I had left there and get them out of the place.

How to Finally Make that Career Change


Careers are something that we start thinking about from the start of secondary school but oddly enough seem to be the thing that “happens” to us rather than it being something of our choice.
