Things I’m Loving Right Now

As we slowly go into Autumn, I’ve changed the things I carry around with me. Now the schools are back, work is super crazy and my life is completely on the go. Here are a few things that have been making my life easier right now.

Kirakira Studio sent me this amazing AHA face cleanser* to try. It’s completely natural, not tested on animals, and removes all makeup in a flash. I use it with a muslin cloth, so my face is squeaky clean and fresh right away. You only have to use a little, so the £19.99 bottle is lasting me ages. I’ve seen an improvement in my complexion since starting using it, so this is absolutely a keeper product for me.

The school year started with a bang this week – that bang was heard from my inbox as all the teachers I contact came back to me from all the emails I sent over the summer!

Roll on the weekend…

Let’s linkie!

John Lewis, though still advertising in the Daily Mail, decided to take away gender labeling from its children’s clothes, which is wonderful. Nicole has written a fantastic post on why this is important.

I’m still finding my feet on Pinterest, but if you’re a noob like me, here’s a great post on how bloggers can get set up there.

Ollie has been cooking up prawns this week!

There was a blogger picnic this week and it looked so much fun! Maria J has written such a relatable post about what it’s like going to your first few blogger events.

Everyone and their aunt listens to Ctrl ALT Delete podcast, but I really loved Emma’s recent episode with Will Young. He has a new podcast out now, too! Go listen, it’s all about stories within the LGBTQ+ community.

BRB going to Norway.

Making cheese looks like so much fun!!!

I had no idea that New Look’s prices for their plus size clothes were so much more. Em wrote a tweet about it…which kinda exploded!

Have an awesome weekend!

I wrote this week about how social media makes me happy as I was sad about the stick I get for it, and I was so touched by all your responses. Comments on the post itself, and messages directly to me on Instagram and Facebook told me that I’m not the only one who feels like this, and I was so happy to hear other people share amazing stories of how social media makes them feel more positive. I love my online gang and I’m so happy to be able to connect with you all.

This is my favourite clothes blog since Look at My Fucking Red Trousers, the Zara Blue Off the Shoulder Dress Tumblr.

On a diet and in London? Emily has you sorted as always.

Amanda has some amazing tips for seasonal eating. I’ve signed up to her newsletter to get more seasonal eating tips!

ASOS has a new visual search tool – looks pretty cool!

I love a good networking post, as it’s something so many of us need to do better. The Stripe has some excellent tips.

Uh, I totally didn’t spot the dick in this picture…

For those looking to prove that their Instagram following is authentic, here’s an excellent post on all those stats.

I love interviews with people about their jobs, especially when they are anonymous.

A bit of stationery porn for you (how I wish I could buy all the Kate Spade stuff)

Have an awesome Friday!!

Social Media Makes Me Happy

It seems that every day, there’s a new report out on how social media is having a negative effect on our lives. That it’s damaging our mental health and frying our brains.

It may be the case for other people. But for me, social media has completely changed my life for the better.

This time last year, Sian explained over brunch how to “do” Instagram. Previously, it had been a place for me to dump random photos of my life – photos that hadn’t been thought about, that had no purpose other than “lol, we did this”. [Read more…]
