THE LIFE DIARIES: Exploring FriendsFest



Anyone who knows me is fully aware I am a huge Friends fan. You can't sit and watch and episode with me without me basically saying every line. It's just one of those shows that always makes you feel happy and makes you laugh. So when ComedyCentral first started doing their FriendsFest I was dying to go - but always missed the boat. This year however my lovely husband signed up for early access and voila! We got tickets straight away.

THE LOCAL DIARIES: THE DOCKYARD



I love food. It's no secret that it's my soul mate and it's an up and down relationship. We are getting to a good place though, don't you worry. Because of this relationship, I love going out for food and finding new places to try - so when I was invited to the new kid in town, The Dockyard, I knew I had to give it a go.

THE STYLE DIARIES: AUGUST WISHLIST - FLORIDA EDITION



Just warning you, you may hear and see quite a bit about my upcoming trip to Florida on here, my channel and my socials. I am very excited... Adam and I are going to Orlando Flordia in September over our Anniversary, but it's mainly to celebrate our 30th birthdays. We thought do we put on a big party for everyone, or go away and do something epic... Epic holiday won.

THE HOME DIARIES | Planning my Gallery Wall


When we first moved, over two years ago now, and I found out I would have my own office I knew I wanted a gallery wall. First of all because I just think they look ridiculously cool, but also because I wanted something creative and fun in my office - and something that would inspire me.

Be prepared for a few holiday-themed posts coming your way over the next few weeks... And here is a beauty-themed extravaganza. I feel like everyone has the must-have products that they can't travel without, whether it's long haul plane essentials, or hot weather make up musts. So here's some of mine...

THE HOLIDAY DIARES: French Riviera 2019 - Where I Went



France is always one of my favourite places to visit. I've been so many times with my family over the years and I don't think I'll ever get bored of it. The French Riviera is well known, and places such as Saint Tropez, Cannes and Nice are hugely popular. However, we stayed just outside of the usual hyped areas and visited some beautiful places.

THE HOLIDAY DIARIES: French Riviera 2019 - What I Wore

 
It's always depressing coming back from a lovely holiday, and being faced with reality. All those things you put on your to do list when you're back and suddenly you have to do them. So much fun. Something I did want to do while I was away was film a what I wore holiday edition, but to be honest - I didn't want to when I got out there. So I thought instead it'd be fun to do a round up of my outfits on here.

THE LOCAL DIARIES: Kayaking in Summer



I feel like I'm posting a lot lately around things to do and lifestyle, but it's what I've loved exploring and writing about lately so hope you don't mind! From next week I'll have some holiday themed pieces coming your way, but for today I wanted to share how you can get a little bit of holiday here, on the south coast.

THE BRUNCH DIARIES: Josie's in Bishop's Waltham

 
 
I've been debating about reviewing Josie's in my little brunch diaries series. Mainly because it's already popular, and I don't want other people to know about it because I always want a seat. It is my favourite brunch place, mainly for the pancakes. It's usually our stop on the way to a day at Marwell Zoo and it's amazing.

THE LIFE DIARIES | Marwell Zoo's Brick-o-Saurs Event

 
 
Anyone who knows me, knows I love the zoo. I always have, and whenever we go anywhere new, chances are I'm going to drag that person to the zoo with me. Adam even took me to the zoo in London on the day he proposed. We actually live near a great zoo, and we usually go every year on my birthday and that's our annual visit. However, my in-laws very kindly got us an annual pass, so we've been visiting a lot more - and were incredibly excited when Marwell Zoo also launched their brick-o-saurs event.

THE HEALTH DIARIES: Working with a Personal Trainer - FAQS

 
 
Today will mark my 6th session with my personal trainer, and it's definitely been an experience. Since telling people I signed up with a PT, I've had a few questions asked - and I also reached out on my socials to see if anyone had any questions and I had a few back. So for today, I thought I'd do a little FAQ post around my experience.

THE LIFE DIARIES: A New Southsea Hangout



I always feel like I'm finding new gems in Southsea. I live outside of Portsmouth, so don't usually find myself wondering around and exploring - however, when I try somewhere new down there I'm generally in for a good surprise. So when I asked to head down the Scarlet Tap, a new bar in Palmerston Road, to try their menu, I picked up my bag and went exploring. I also took some of the fam with me.

THE STYLE DIARIES: June Wishlist - ZARA Special

 
 
It's been FOR-EVER since I've done a wish list on here, but I've found myself almost obsessively browsing high street stores and adding things to my wish lists lately. So, I thought I would start a new little series on here to show what products I'm coveting that month.

THE LIFE DIARIES: A Weekend in Port Solent

 
 
Port Solent is many things to me. It's where we go for a last minute date night, it's where we go to see the latest film, where we pop for a relaxed lunch in the sun, and generally where my best friend and I go for our annual Christmas Eve lunch. However, not many people realise that amongst all the tasty restaurants and cute shops, there's an afternoon tea gem hiding.

The Style Diaries | Spring '19 Trends - The Midi Length



 
I spent half a day swapping over my Winter wardrobe for my Spring items, and I feel like I'm vibing off my wardrobes so much more now. But as I was looking through my current wardrobe, and then did a little (a lot) of online browsing, I found some definite trends that were reoccurring across different high street brands, and my favourite style influencers, so I thought I would pop together a series of posts on my favourite trends, how I'd style them and where you can find the best pieces (in my opinion).

The Health Diaires: Getting a Personal Training

 
 
I feel like I have always been one of those people that needs a stick shoved up their arse to get them to do anything remotely physical. Not literally, obviously, but it's true. My husband, and probably my Dad, will quite happily verify this. It's not that I don't enjoy it, it's just the will to get up and do something when my bed is so very warm and cosy. I've definitely gotten better, and I've certainly lost the majority of the weight I wanted to loose - but I just can't seem to get across that finish line.

The Brunch Diaries: The Salt Cafe



If you live in the area, I'm sure The Salt Cafe isn't exactly new to you. It's blown up in popularity since it's launch, and has continued to grow and grow. However, I had to include it as part of the Brunch Diaries as it is one of my favourite places to go.

LIFE | Working From Home - FAQS

 
 
Around two years ago I started working from home, as opposed to an office. It feels like yesterday, but also feels like I haven't ever known anything different. I will say this - this is probably the thing I get asked about the most with regards to my professional life. As soon as people hear I work from home, I get soooo many questions. So I thought I'd pop together a little post on the most frequently asked...

ZoellaxColourpop Collab: My Top 3 Picks

 
 
Whenever a big collab, or collection comes out there's always a rush of people wanting to try absolutely everything, or wanting to know exactly what's worth the hype. The truth is, you're not going to get a true reflection on what's worth it straight away. However, I'm exactly the same - somehow I ended up buying the entire collection from Zoella's recent collab with Colourpop, but I have to say... Not all products were worth the rush.

LIFE | Welcome to April Madness

 
 
So it's April on Monday, which means one thing ... Hello April Madness. What is April Madness? So, it's me being a loon and deciding to do a heap tonne of videos and posts throughout the month of April. Why, why you ask? If you even asked... Even so, I'll still tell you and explain what we're doing...
 
So, it's been a little while since I've even really done a blog post, and it's mainly because life is just being life. I've been doing videos, and it was about all I could handle at that moment with everything else going on. But, I have really missed writing and I feel so inspired to create lots of different content across both channels, as well as my social media (especially Instagram) that I just want to let it all go and experiment in April. Once that's done, I can then come up with a proper schedule and create content that not only I love, but you guys love it too.
 
So what can you expect from April madness?
 
YOUTUBE
I am going to be doing 5 videos a week, Monday to Friday. See - I'm insane. I've done a lot of prep already and filmed and edited a few, but I'm basically spending my lunch breaks at work and weekends filming and editing. Thankfully - I love it. Usually I focus on beauty on my channel, but there's going to be vlogs, style videos, food videos and so on. I'm so excited to try different types of video - especially style ones - and I can't wait to get your feedback and see how you respond to it as well. Video's will be going live at lunch time each day!

BLOG
I feel like my little blog has been somewhat neglected over the past year, but it was where I started and writing is what I love to do. So, we're bringing it back. And we're going 5 blogs a week, Monday - Friday as well. Told you - MADNESS. Again, we're going to be doing lots of different topics as I've always done on here and we'll be doing some more personal posts as well around PCOS, friendships and so on, so I'm excited. I'm also quite excited to get back into taking photos for the blog, I always feel like they're never good enough - but I need to remember this is for fun. Not to get stressed! Blog posts will be going live in the evenings.
 
INSTAGRAM
I love Instagram, it's where I spend most of my time on my phone and I love taking photos. But - I want to do more stuff on stories, and be a bit more regular with my photos as well. Sharing more of my beauty looks, outfits and such. So - I will be more regular with posting on there too, which will be good! I don't have a specific schedule, but definitely go and follow me on there if you don't already as I will be sharing behind the scenes photos and such from filming and blogging etc.
 
 
And then... at the end of April Madness I'll be doing a giveaway to say thank you for all the support over the month - so stayed tuned and make sure you subscribe on YT and follow me on Instagram to be able to enter!
 
And there we go! Are you excited? I'm scared, and excited. Let me know if there's anything specific you want to see on any of the channels, and I'll work them into April madness.
 
Thanks for all

The Brunch Diaries: Bread Addiction



Brunch is one of those meals I feel like people love to love, but always feels a little bit like a luxury. Do you have it for breakfast, or lunch, or both? I love a good brunch. It's quite possibly one of my favourite meals, so I'm very excited to set out on a mission to find some of the best brunch spots in my area - or wherever I am on the weekend!

My 2019 Goals



So yep, 2018 is officially over - hello 2019. Where on earth did you come from? 2018 was an interesting year for me, there were some really low low's, and also some really great highs. It's been a weird one - I'm not even sure how to describe it. But, that's not what today's post is all about...
