    Vegan Olive Scones

    When I was about eight years old my Grandparents decided to sell up in the UK and opt for a sunnier life in the South of Spain.

I know what you’re probably thinking, ‘good for you Jaime, but what has this got to do with scones?’. Well amid the excessive tanning (it’s true, I am a self certified sun worshipper), the outrageous tapas consumption and the reading of as many books as possible, I became completely obsessed with…

    Tropic Skincare Product Review

    After completing my teenage years without a single breakout and skin as fresh as a babies bottom, I headed into my adult years pretty clueless about skincare products. Seriously girls, I didn’t even moisturise. Sod’s law at the ripe old age of 23 (haha) I had a massive breakout. Panic kicked in and I was literally covering my face in toothpaste/tea-tree/any cruelty-free skincare product that google suggested in attempt to restore my skin to it’s previous state.

If they don’t experience it themselves, I’ll bet you a long island ice-tea and a fancy dinner that they know someone who does. Anxiety is almost as normal as brushing our teeth for many of us; we encounter it almost every single day of the week. Our brains tick over faster than a chicken can cross a busy road as we adventure through a thousand super crazy scenarios. That is until we work ourselves up to the brink of a panic attack.…
