My Honeymoon – The planning & Shopping…

by

Honeymoon planning and shopping...Shopping for summer /holiday pieces during winter is one of the hardest tasks ever! Why didn't anyone tell me? If you are following me on Instagram, you'll know I've been away for my honeymoon to sunny Thailand and rainy Bali. I'll come back to these 2 places in a second...but first...the planning. I started planning, sort of, just after my wedding in October. I had a clear idea of my destinations and when I wanted to go, it had to be January.

Looking Like A Model Is Actually A Doddle

by

When it comes to fashion and beauty, we live in an enlightened age. Women are starting to band together against unrealistic ideals in beauty magazines or other outdated mediums. The idea that models have unattainable levels of beauty is something you need to push out of your head. Looking like a model is actually a doddle; though, to clarify, this doesn’t mean we’re saying that you should look photoshopped. What we mean is that anybody and everybody should have the confidence to dress in fashionable clothes, doll themselves up, and simply feel good about the way they look in the mirror. You have that potential in you and here’s how to harness it. Posture and confidence. We’re grouping these two things together because they’re very closely related. Good posture will improve your appearance (and your health, without meaning to sound like a nagging mom). This might seem like an overly-simple piece of ...
