Hello! So today I decided to write an updated blogging tips and tricks post. I wrote a blogging tips post a long long time ago and really wanted to do an updated one as my last one feels so old now! I get a lot of emails asking for blogging and social media tips so I guess I just wanted to share some of mine with you. Recently, I've done quite a few talks for students about blogging and I really wanted to put what I've been saying in these talks into writing. I personally don't think you can tell someone how to blog or how to write, a blog is you, it's your space on the internet and it's totally up to you what you do with it so this is by no means a fool-proof: do this and you'll have a perfect blog style post. No-one is perfect. My blog is far from perfect. I'm really not actually a fan of being told what to do with my own blog so instead, I guess I can tell you a few things I've learnt along the way in the hopes that they may help even one person out! Whether you're just starting out, interested in blogging or already have a blog - maybe you'll learn something new! I feel fortunate that I am now able to blog full-time as my job, but let me tell you, it may seem glamorous and easy but it really isn't. Let's discuss...

Give me good company, good food and I'm a happy girl. That's exactly what happened when I ate at KuPP recently. There are so many incredible restaurants in London and even though I'm in London a lot of the time, I always end up going back to the same places. It's nice to try somewhere new so when I heard about KuPP, I knew I had to try it. You may recognise this outfit from LFW, I also wore it to KuPP, so here it is again... with a lot of great food.

Hello hello! A beauty one from me today because I couldn't not write about this chocolatey beauty treat today. Yup, a beauty palette, with a twist. It actually smells like chocolate, good enough to eat (but you can't eat it). As most of you will know, Too Faced are one of my favourite brands when it comes to beauty, their packaging is always beautiful, their products are always special and it's truly a brand I've loved for a long time. Let's discuss one of their newest launches and show you how gorgeous it is, in true Too Faced style...

When Jo Malone invited me to have a personalised fragrance consultation, I couldn't say no. Jo Malone is one of my all time favourite brands when it comes to smelling great, pampering and just generally feeling great. I've managed to accumulate quite the Jo Malone collection in recent years and I couldn't be happier with every single product I own. More on my favourites soon. Today, I want you to join me in their Regent Street store for a serious pamper (ps, anyone can do this!!!)

I needed to take my new boots and trench for a spin and this was the perfect opportunity. I'm excited to share this outfit with you, you may have seen this image feature on a blog post a little while ago but finally I can share the full outfit with you! This post contains a few of my absolute wardrobe staples; a nice, trusty trench, a lace floaty dress and obviously, a dreamy handbag. I hope you love this look as much as I do.

Hello hello! A foodie and date night post from me seen as my last 'date night' post went down so well! Yay. Recently I ate at One-O-One restaurant in Knightsbridge and I couldn't not share this meal with you as it's 100% one of the best meals I've ever had and trust me, that's a bold statement coming from me as I really like my food. Let's discuss the dreamiest date night to exist...

Too Faced are one of my favourite brands and have been for a long time. Their products are always quirky and fun, I usually have one Too Faced product in my make up bag at all times. I was pretty excited to try out their new Hangover Primer - mainly because I'm a little bit of a primer obsessive - I'm honestly obsessed with primers. I feel weird doing my make up without them. Primers are great because they act as a barrier between your skin and the make up but usually, make your make up last longer and look smoother and more flawless. Let's take a look at the new Hangover primer then and see if it passed my test...

Hello hello! So this is a blog post I've wanted to get live for a long time and one I've been promising you for ages. If you follow me on Twitter you'll know all about my yummy, healthier peanut butter cups! I am obsessed with making these and make a batch every week! Imagine Reese's peanut butter cups but Em style! Reese's peanut butter cups taste incredible but they're not too good for us unfortunately. These are my take on them, easy to whip up, delicious to eat, they bust those cravings but have a lot less sugar and badness as in the ones they sell in the shops! These are perfect if you're wanting a protein packed treat and they'll fuel you too. Big thanks to my friend Healthy Jon for showing me the way with these. They taste moorish and naughty but they're actually really not that naughty! Hope you love them as much as I do!

Recently I've been staying over in London for leisure as well as work. I usually head down to London every couple of days or week (depending on what my diary looks like) and then trail back home. It's really nice to spend weekends in London though, it means I get to actually put my phone down, do no meetings and just enjoy the city. London is full of incredible hotels, eateries and things to do, I'm always so busy rushing around that I often forget to stop and just enjoy the city which is why now, I try to focus on having more weekends away and celebrating London. If you read Emtalks a lot, you'll know I'm a sucker for nice hotels, I could happily live in a hotel. As a plush hotel lover, I have no idea why it's taken me so long to stay in a W hotel. I think the W are most famous for their incredible Barcelona hotel (the one which is basically in the sea) and I'm making it my mission to stay there this year (Barcelona is my favourite European city so it would be rude not to). I'm a fan of plush, modern hotels with good service, so let's see how I felt about my first stay at the W.

Hello hello, so Mother's day in the UK is a few days away (this Sunday) and I'm a little late with this guide but do not fear, you can get most of these things online with next day delivery and hopefully it will give you some nice inspiration anyway! For me, Mothers day is about more than gifts though, my Mum is happiest with some fresh flowers and a day of seeing me and my brother. I love nothing more than spending quality time with my Mum and surprising her with flowers but, I do love getting her the odd treat or two. This year, I'm excited to actually be home for Mothers day for once! Let's discuss...

Hello hello! So another personal post from me today and it gives me the chance to talk to you about something that needs celebrating more actually: YOU. Yes you, reading this right now. I often feel like women don't celebrate themselves enough or show themselves enough self love. We're so busy (I know I am anyway) constantly stressing or running around that actually, we don't always stop to take care of ourselves and just love ourselves. Let's discuss further...
