A Year of Blogging: 12 Lessons Learned

It’s been just over a year since I plucked up enough courage to start my very own blog. What began as my very own creative project soon turned into something bigger; I grew a sense of belonging within the community and began receiving more opportunities to work with amazing brands. It still baffles, scares and excites me in equal measure that so many people seem to be interested in little old me; the stories that I have to tell and the opinions that I share. Fear of failure and lack of confidence held me back from blogging for a long time,…

July Highlights

Apparently here in Britain we talk about the weather more anywhere else in the world. I guess we never get bored of it because typically, it constantly changes. On the most part, July was an exception. So far we’ve been blessed with a proper Summer, long sunny days like those we fondly reminisce about.

Korean Beauty : Glowing Skin with Klairs

Despite my status as a self-confessed skincare junkie, I’ve been rather slack in my approach to one of this year’s biggest skincare hypes; Korean beauty. K-Beauty emphasises the importance of skincare over make-up products, which is an approach that I wholeheartedly agree with. Don’t get me wrong, you know that I love my make-up, but thankfully the high-school version of me has evolved to use it as an enhancement rather than an attempt to cover-up problematic skin.
