    Beauty Queen, Drama Queen, Trap Queen, Nap Queen? 10 signs that you’re nap royalty.

    Are you ready for the best news you’ve ever heard? Napping is 100% good for you. I’m serious. Naps are actually good for lots of reasons, which I could tell you about, but hey, I’m no scientist, I think I’ll leave that one for google. OR if you’re like me, then the reasons why naps are good for you are pretty irrelevant, you just love to nap. You are a self-confirmed nap queen and this is how you know… 10 signs that you’re nap royalty. FOMO, no no. You’re so over FOMO.

    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 don’t really remember how I felt about this at the time but all feelings were soon a distant memory when regular trips to visit became a staple part of my every year. 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. Well as it goes, nothing seems to work and I was still waking up every day to discover another addition to my face, questioning why my body was doing this to me, and feeling…
