Daytime Handbag Essentials & Aspinal Mayfair Mock-Croc Leather Bag Review

grey faux fur guess jacketAfter the amazing response to my Gucci swing bag review post, I thought I'd introduce you to a new designer handbag today. My Aspinal Mayfair Mock-Croc leather bag. This gorgeous little cutie has followed me everywhere recently, it's my first ever grey bag. I decided to go for less of a traditional colour (I stick to blacks when it comes to bags) and something a little smaller. It's compact, beautiful and a true classic. I wanted to show you what's been in this bag recently, some serious essentials and new daytime favourites so get ready!

Small Things I Did To Lose Weight & Tone Up - What Is Barrecore?

barrecore
Hello hello! I realise I haven't done a fitness post in a few weeks (more coming your way this month, don't you worry) so today I wanted to talk about the little things I have been doing recently that have helped me to tone up, as well as a few new products I've been loving wellness wise. I'm a sucker for well-being and that's totally okay because I think putting our health and well-being first is so important. Let's discuss the little things I've been doing recently to tone up and stay in shape. I'm also including a pretty amazing new antiperspirant I've discovered and an amazing little kit from Neom to boost your workouts on these low energy/chilly Winter days!

Titanic Spa, Huddersfield Review & The Best Quiet Spots In Leeds

My life is pretty hectic, I'm okay with that. I split my time between Leeds and London, often abroad too and sometimes, I just need to recharge my batteries. I'm sure you'll know that if you've read my travel posts. I'm a motivated, life-loving person and love nothing more than making good use of my time. It's safe to say I am a little bit of a workaholic but it's something I've been working on recently (you can read about what my job actually entails here). The best thing for me about being busy is that it means I appreciate my 'me' time, and quiet time a lot more. Whether that's an hour in the bath, an hour at the gym or an hour on the sofa doing absolutely nothing, I cherish those moments of calm now. Recently, I got the chance to explore a venue not too far from home for a little bit of relaxation. Challenged by Virgin Experience days to find a little bit of calm in the city, here is my ultimate guide to relaxation in the North of England and you know what? As much as I adore London, the North really needs shouting about, it's so underrated. Let's change that and shout about it!

A Moment Of Calm; My Weekend Breakfast

Life is really busy, for most of us. We all have those days where we're rushed off our feet and completely forget what calm feels like. If you've read my blog post about my job, you'll know that whilst I love it, the blogging world can be very full on. I recently wrote a blog post about how best to juggle your time, because I feel like I've become the queen of having no schedule, it really does change every day. When Lindt challenged me to do something for me, and share a moment of calm, I decided to take you for a healthy breakfast with me. Apart from the gym, which is my one hour of relaxation a day (if you can call the gym relaxing), the only time I actually sit, breathe and spend time with my loved ones is breakfast (when I'm at home!). Even if we go out for breakfast, breakfast is such a big part of my life. I'm sure you've read some of my fitness posts where I talk about why breakfast is so important, but it's not just important from a health point of view, I find it such a calm moment too and it always starts my day in a great way.

How To Spread Goodness This Christmas And Give Back

Hey guys, so today it's a post all about spreading goodness. I'm totally upping my blogging game at the moment, that means, blogging a lot more frequently and I hope you're enjoying. I don't know anyone who doesn't feel great when they're giving back which is why actually, I have been giving back a lot recently. Every month I give bags of things to charity but for the last few Christmases I've been giving lots of things away to a local children's home, it means the children get Christmas presents. Anything that doesn't go to them is then raffled off to raise money for Easter eggs etc. I get such a great feeling when I give back and that's why I'm a little bit in love with this campaign. FeelGood drinks invited me to host my own little party in my house (or online) to celebrate spreading goodness and I've decided to turn this into a post about how I'm going to be spread goodness this Christmas and give you some tips too. I wanted to talk to you about a few ways you can give back this Christmas and spread some goodness in ways you didn't even think of. Remember, a little something may mean nothing to you but it may mean everything to someone else.
