Simple Ways To Transform Your Bedroom


Today I wanted to write a blog post all about my favourite tips to transform your bedroom. I've been holding this blog post off for a while as they're not my favourite photos I've ever taken in all honesty. I keep putting quite a lot of pressure on myself at the moment to make sure I'm only posting content I absolutely love but then I thought about it and SO many people have asked about these prints, I've decided to just with it. I am so excited to show you these, I may not be in love with my photography here but I am in love with these prints! Again, I am really sorry this has taken me so long.

10 Ways To Hit Your Health & Fitness Goals

It’s that time of year again, the ‘get beach body ready’ sayings are everywhere and people are upping their gym games. As far as I’m concerned, it doesn’t matter what month it is, but anything that inspires you to move more and eat better (not less). Is great. If you’ve followed Emtalks for a while, you’ll know I do not believe in deprivation or dieting, I know that message may be getting boring (I talk about it all the time) but it’s true. Today I wanted to share a few ways I’m motivating myself to workout more this Summer and make changes to my body in the hopes that they inspire you.

Why I Love Running & Run With Me!


I’m sure you’re all aware by now of just how much I adore running, feeling energised andgoing on adventures. If you read last month’s blog post about the best uses for honey, you’ll know that I talked about my exciting partnership with yoomoo frozen yogurt this year (I may have eaten a tub of Honey n Granola right before I stepped on the plane). At the start of July I’m going to be taking part in my first ever Color Run as yoomoo have partnered with them, and I want to invite you to come along with me and talk about running too!

Is Social Media Dangerous?

Dress, online here / cheaper option online here.

This is a blog post idea I’ve been toying with for quite some time now. The topic ‘is social media dangerous/making people unwell’ hits us on a weekly basis, with social media platforms and bloggers regularly getting bashed or, sometimes just debated. I really wanted to put my thoughts together on this topic in the hope that it helps someone or, just welcomes a healthy debate. Let’s do this. Do you think social media is dangerous?

Three Essential Summer Holiday Wardrobe Staples

Buying summer clothes is one of my favourite hobbies. I'm a little obsessed with light-weight, easy to wear, day-to-night summer dresses. Let's be honest, I have an addiction to ASOS and add things to my basket on a weekly basis. I grabbed my suitcase, selected a few must-haves, super light-weight, easy to wear from breakfast until dinner pieces and I hope you're gonna love them as much as I do. I'm all about wardrobe staples in Summer, these are serious holiday staples.

best products for perfect pedicureSummer is here in the UK (give or take) and one thing I’ve never actually spoken about on this blog, ever, is footcare.

Summer is the time where we want to get our feet out and wear sandals, peep-toes (I bought the most amazing Louboutins for my graduation), you name it so today I've pulled together my top tips for the best products to achieve the perfect pedi, as well as sneaking some in from top nail technician Marian Newman and Boots UK so you have the confidence to step out this Summer.

My Gym Tips - What I Do At The Gym

Hello hello, so today, I thought I’d write up an updated what I do at the gym blog post, as well as embed some of my fitness videos so you guys can follow along with me either at the gym or at home. I think we all know by now just how much I adore working out and going to the gym. It’s one of those things that I’ve learnt to love, once you stop seeing exercise as a chore, and appreciate it as a way to nourish your body and make your body healthier and stronger, you’ll enjoy it a lot more, it’s all about mindset. So many people ‘hate the gym’ but I honestly think its because they haven’t found the right gym/workout/environment for them. Today I thought I’d give some workout tips, whether you’re a total beginner or a fitness fanatic. Get ready.

A Weekend Trip To Margate, Kent. Dreamland Margate, The Reading Rooms and More! What To Do In Margate.

dreamland margate
To celebrate Matt finally finishing his masters dissertation, I organised a very special little break for us. Typically, he hadn't actually finished by this point in the end, but, we still went and explored anyway. We hopped on a Southeastern train to head on an ultimate little escape to explore the South East. It's crazy that before last week, I hadn't ever visited the South East. I spend the majority of my time in London, Yorkshire and everywhere else in the world but the South East? Never. It really offers the loveliest little day trips or mini break adventures so I headed to go and discover some hidden gems in Kent. I'm so excited to share these images with you and this wonderful place.

Summer Beauty Essentials

beauty flat lay
I placed a pretty epic Summer boots order before heading to the USA for a Summer road trip and just had to share with you what I'd bought. Boots hauls are something we all still get *pretty* excited about, I mean, how couldn't we? I love nothing more than rushing into Boots with my little basket and coming out with so many new wonders. This time, I actually bought the stuff online, it was dangerous that's for sure. Within a day my products had arrived, I left this way too last minute but I'm so excited by these bits. I've decided to do this as a Boots haul/absolute Summer toad trip essentials post and hope you'll love it as much as I love these products. Let's just say, Boots holidays section has everything I needed.

The Best Skincare For Flights And Traveling



Hello hello hello! Get ready for quite a lot of travel content this month, it’s June which pretty much means Summer is here or, people are planning for their Summer holidays at least. I mean, in the UK as I write this, it's raining (far too much) so hopefully this will at least make you feel a little more like jumping on a plane to the sunshine. As you read this, I’m about to get on a flight to San Fransisco and I couldn’t resist writing a blog post with my travel tips and beauty products seen as I've spent the last week packing them all together. After the success of my long haul flight tips and top long haul travel beauty items blog post, I thought I’d do something similar but all about my in flight, travel beauty must haves and I've thrown a few flying tips in if you're a nervous flyer...

How To Get Balance In Day To Day Life - Why Balance Is SO Important



Dress / 

Balance is a term thrown around a lot, particularly in the fitness and wellbeing industry. You either see people preaching entirely clean diets (dangerous, something I’ve touched on before and you can read my thoughts on clean eating) or, you see people preaching balance. I’m sure you all know by now that I live by the rule of balance. Not depriving yourself, enjoying life and being balanced in every aspect is key. I’m so excited to announce a partnership around balance with Yushoi, one of my absolute favourite guilt-free snacking brands to exist (if you follow me on Snapchat you’ll have probably seen me pick up some Yushoi every week) so expect lots more health related posts coming up. Today, I’m going to talk to you about how I try to be balanced in every aspect of my life.
