S M O O T H  O P E R A T O R:  3 weeks post my first laser hair removal treatment @birminghamprivateclinic and my legs are still smooth AF 🙌🏾 I haven’t needed even a quick trim since. ⁣My only regret is why didn’t I go this SOONER?! My first session dispelled a lot of misconceptions I’ve always had about laser treatments. ⁣⁣1. It can definitely be done on dark skin. ⁣2. You can still get your bikini area (full Hollywood 😜) done on your period as long as you are comfortable 🙌🏾👌🏾 ⁣⁣What a weight off my shower routine this has been especially as my regrowth  is normally super quick. Have you ever had laser treatment?  #ad #gifted #laserhairremoval

E M P T I E S: (SWIPE LEFT) Something different for the feed...🤍Thought it’d be helpful to put together a list of my #empties. There’s always a lot of different products being inboxed, advertised and shown in tutorials. But what are you actually using through and through? These are products I use on the regular and would definitely repurchase because they’re all so good!👌🏾 More empties on my stories (this is limited to 10 unfortunately) and all links to products are on my blog (link in bio). Let me know if you want to see more content like this regularly. What are your empties?? I love to know what everyone’s loving 🥰😍😍 xx .#SelfCareSunday #SkincareEmpties #beautyempties

OOTD: Pull & Bear

Have you ever tried explaining what a blog is to a 84-year-old?

Mathew’s Nan has the coolest backyard garden in Rugeley so when I found out we were going over to hers for Sunday dinner, I packed my camera and lens kit in my bag and off we went. After lunch, I whipped out my camera and asked Matty to snap away. She spied me from her kitchen window breaking into all these poses and obviously got curious. She asked me what the occasion was and I said I was a blogger…

But before the very confusing conversation of explaining what a blog/blogger was ensued – (What is a blog? Why do people give two dams what you’re wearing or where you bought it? Do you KNOW these people? Why don’t you just keep a REAL diary? Didn’t they teach you not to talk to strangers?) ; Mathew jumped in and clarified; ‘She has a website and she loves taking pictures.’ Simples.

Which really is what I usually say as I’ve come to realise that despite the apparent saturation of blogs in this new age, many people still do not know what a blog is. I won’t even try with my parents. I’m still trying to get them to join Facebook and WhatsApp…

Do your friends and family know about your website or are you keeping it all alter-ego-ish and under wraps?

Bought this Pull & Bear grey knit ribbed co-ord in Spain in the summer. It’s my best holiday buy yet. Too comfy and chic. And chic is always a winner.

PS: This is the other bag I got my vintage trip to Cow Vintage. So many finds, so little money!

OUTFIT: Pull & Bear grey knit knot jumper and trousers, Hotsoles sandals (current faves), Bag from Cow Vintage Birmingham.

    That story was too funny! I can understand people of a certain age unaware of our “social world”. My immediate family knows about my blog, but older relatives are not too familiar with my hobby (case in point). LOL.

    I LOVE when comfy clothes are paired with sexy heels. You look amazing, and the pop of color adds that extra oomph. That backdrop is gorgeous! Question: When can ship those shoes to me? Ha!

    Enjoy the rest of your week love! xx

      hahaha, I’m always amused by how much/little older people know about what’s trending these days and how underwhelming they find it. hahahahaha

    I ADORE (!) this look! You look great 🙂

    I usually call my blog “my website”. I find that people tend to assume that if you blog you are putting your whole life online. If you say “website” people are more inclined to ask what kind of content you work with and release on said website instead of assuming you’re sitting around all day posting artsy photos of every meal, haha.
