5 Tips For Your Mental Wellbeing During The Lo…

Hello! I hope you all are well and safe during these uncertain and scary times. I’ve been home and abiding to the lockdown rules for over a week now, since my retail workplace closed last weekend and from when the UK officially went into lockdown.

Whilst we’re looking after our physical health, staying in to minimise the risk of spreading and contracting Coronavirus (COVID-19), it is also…

Let’s Try It On: House of CB

Let’s Try It On: House of CB

Hey! Last week I visited the House of CB store in Westfield Stratford, London to try on some pieces that I’ve had my eye on for a while. Being a petite girl with a larger bust, I tend to find it hard to fit into certain things, sometimes the fit can be way too long or not big enough in the chest. With these thoughts in mind I thought it would be a good idea to try on some outfits before ordering.

5 Tips For Being More Confident Taking Pictures

Often times when I’m taking pictures with friends, they’ll comment that I look really confident and ask how I don’t worry about other people around me. Being completely honest, confidence when shooting is still something that I struggle with at times! If I catch someone looking over at me or it looks like they’re talking about me I’ll just feel anxiety wave over me and want to stop.

BUT creating…

Regular

Hey! Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and the best time this festive period! This is one of my favourite times of the year; I love spending time with all my loved ones. Before the new year I wanted to reminisce a little bit on Christmas and the exciting lead up to it.

Ruxley Manor

My boyfriend and I have made it a little Christmas tradition to go to Ruxley Manor Garden Centre; it’s one of his favourite places to go at Christmas and it’s becoming mine too to begin the Christmas period. The Christmas decor is such an inspiration for my future home when I have a Christmas tree in all rooms!

In the centre there’s a Santa’s Grotto and Reindeers and an ice skating rink which we didn’t attempt to go on because I constantly fall. (Literally like Bambi on ice!) I found a cute little cabin to take some pictures in and I normally feel confident taking pictures in public but I spotted a guy who pointed at me to his friends and laughed. In the moment I wanted to stop but after some reassurance and remembering that I don’t care about other people’s opinions and I went back to take more pictures!

Winter Wonderland

Every Christmas it is a must to make a trip to Hyde Park Winter Wonderland – Even Rihanna went this year! This year we got tickets to the Magical Ice Kingdom and saw the Charles Dickens ‘A Christmas Carol’ ice sculptures; which was so worth getting tickets for even though it was so cold in there.

After multiple attempts at trying to win a Pokemon soft toy at the fairground games, we settled with the little soft toys we won previously and went on the rides. I don’t like heights so rollercoasters and me don’t go well together but I did go on one ride that wasn’t high just so fast. At first I was fooled and believed it was a nice slow ride and then there was a loud countdown and before I knew it I had to protect my lashes flying away!

Covent Garden

One of fave spots in London at Christmas, and honestly one of my go to places all year round. This year there were pop ups in the area, Glossier Store and Tiffany & Co. that definitely made it worth while to visit. At Christmas London is truly beautiful with all the lights and is also super close to Regent Street and Oxford Street to check out those lights too. I’d also recommend going to the Maddox Gallery, just off Regent Street, to see the decorations there it’s always so amazing.

Christmas Day

The day we’ve all been waiting for! I love spending time with my family and being the eldest of my siblings I love watching my brother and sister enjoy the day and their gifts. The gifts aren’t my favourite thing of the day, in my family we actually leave it until very late in the day to open our gifts. My favourite time of the day (apart from food thats just an obvious choice!) is game time – the chosen game this year was charades and it’s taken very seriously in our house. We played various rounds on Disney characters, Top 90’s Songs and Movies. Then the day ended with the annual watching of Eastenders (having no idea whats going on), a Marvel film and FaceTiming my boyfriend – perfect ending to the day!
