Brunch At Bourne And Hollingsworth with Sure Antibac & Dr Christian Jessen

pink shift dress boohoo
I'm not the kinda girl to turn down an epic breakfast opportunity, particularly when it's at one of my favourite places, with one of my favourite brands. Bourne and Hollingsworth in London is exactly the kinda place I like to brunch; peaceful, quirky and just serious interior goals, it's Pinterest and Instagram heaven. Couple that with one of my favourite brands (Sure), brilliant food and fabulous company and you'll have to force me to leave. On Tuesday morning, I was lucky enough to learn some top tips from Dr Christian Jessen himself as we giggled, ate and chatted all things Sure. Come join me for the morning.

How To Spend An Afternoon In London, Me Time In London With Starbucks Teavana

starbucks teavanaLife can be crazy and so busy that often, we (me included) forget to stop and take some ‘me time’. I’m all about ‘me time’ because it keeps me sane but actually, I’m not very good at doing nothing at all so instead, I took an afternoon to have some ‘me’ time but in more of an energised way. I grabbed one of the new Starbucks Teavana lattes (the mint and matcha one is absolutely delicious) and then ran some very nice errands and had more of an active ‘me day’ and wanted to take you along with me to see exactly what we got up to.

Finding The One: How To Find The Perfect Hair Dresser & The Importance Of Finding A Good Hair Dresser

how to fix damaged hair

So today I had a meeting and we ended up discussing how much we love our hairdressers and how fabulous we feel every single time we walk out of the salon door. Interestingly, I was told that women are more loyal to their hairdressers than their doctors (definitely true for me). I seem to naturally either love or hate a hair experience, there's never really any in-between. For me, getting my hair done is something I wish I could do every single day. If it was up to me, in an ideal world, I'd never wash my hair and instead would have three blow dries a week. That's how confident and fabulous I feel when I leave the salon. Obviously, finding 'the one' e.g., the dream, perfect hair dresser who knows whats best for you, wants you to look your absolute best at all times and wont go and chop it all off when that's the last thing you want, is very important. As my Mum has always said, a good hairdresser is worth paying for because your hair is seen every single day. I've done a lot of blog posts about my troubles with growing my hair, make sure you read my top hair growth tips, and also, I recently wrote about how my damaged hair ruined my confidence. I'm happy to say that every single time I visit my hairdresser, my confidence grows and finally, my hair is growing too after years of thinking it would never grow. Day by day I am impressed with not just my hair growth, but how strong my hair is getting too. Today, I wanted to give you a little hair update but also give you some top tips about finding the best hair dresser.

Top Handbag Essentials And Gucci Swing Bag Review

So today I wanted to give you a little update on my top handbag essentials. I am often called Mary Poppins because I cram so much stuff into my handbag (all necessary of course) so today, I wanted to show you what's made it into my daily handbag at the moment.  I'm also writing this post because a few people have asked for a review of the Gucci Swing Bag. I bought the Gucci Swing about two weeks ago and I'm head over heels in love. I feel so sad to have replaced my Burberry but this is now my kind of 'every day handbag'. I change what's in my bag every week really but I wanted to show you my handbag essentials at the moment. Let's go!

Learning To Love Fitness And Exercise

I say it all too often, "we need to learn to love fitness". I know I keep saying it on my fitness posts, but, it's true. I see so many people trying to find quick ways to lose weight, including starving themselves, doing crazy fad diets and trying to avoid doing exercise. Equally, the world of social media can be dangerous (read my post on the dangers of clean eating). I like to think I'm pretty balanced. It's my mantra. Exercise is hard work, exercise burns and tires you out but in a good way. We shouldn't hate on something that makes us feel fabulous. You never regret a workout and you feel great afterwards. I don't work out to lose weight, I work out because it makes me feel great, it boosts my confidence, boosts my mood and actually, means I don't have to feel guilty for enjoying my food either (not that you should ever feel guilty for enjoying food anyway but that's a whole different blog post). What's great to see is how many people are really embracing exercise nowadays, I definitely think social media helps with that. I'm forever seeing strong, fit women inspiring others to eat better and move more. That's what it's all about, moving more and eating better - not less. Today, I want to have another fitness ramble because you guys seem to like them! Let's go!
