    SelfCareathon #2 – Obstacles

    Happy Friday. I’ve got WiFi and I couldn’t be more excited to finally be back to my blog.

    SelfCareathon #1 – 10 things about me

    I’ve recently signed up to Blurt’s Support Squad after coming across the #BlurtSelfCareathon hashtag on Twitter, in hope that I could show some love to a super important cause. You may not have heard of The Blurt Foundation – they’re a small charity who are dedicated to helping those who suffer from depression, and they are the brains behind the BuddyBox: A Hug in a box, a subscription box created for everyone and anyone who needs a boost, a pick-me up or a big dollop of self-care, how fab does that sounds? I’ll definitely be ordering myself a BuddyBox next time I need a bit of TLC, and I highly…

    She believed she could, so she did – 10 reasons why I love being female

    Happy International Women’s Day. Here’s to the strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.

    The 7th week of the calendar year has always been one of my favourites.

    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.
