A Girls Trip To Ibiza With Barry M Cosmetics! Ocean Beach Ibiza.

Whenever an opportunity to spend some time in the sunshine arises, I'm the first one there. I love exploring and actually, as much as international travel is the best, I also love places near to home. It definitely shouldn't be under-estimated, Europe is beautiful and so close to the UK. Recently, Barry M Cosmetics invited me for a girls weekend in Ibiza and I could hardly say no. It was the day after my final ever University exam and I don't think they could have timed it any better really! Come join us for a lot of sparkly fun...

An Amazing Trip To Cyprus! Why You Should Visit Cyprus. What To Do In Protaras & Surrounding Areas In Cyprus!

I love nothing than jumping on a plane and exploring. As most of you will know by now, I suffer with wanderlust really bad. That means, I always want to be out somewhere, exploring. I get seriously itchy feet. I got a scratch map for Christmas and have become obsessed with scratching off new cities and countries off it. There are so many amazing places in this beautiful world that I'd love to visit. Cyprus is somewhere I never thought I'd go back to. I went as a child on family holidays and never really thought much of it. It was always a kind of standard, package holiday destination rammed with Brits and pretty rubbish all inclusive resorts. This year, I was shown a different side of Cyprus. I am far too excited to share this with you and trust me, this is why you should go on holiday and leave the resort!

Styling A White Lace Body Con Dress For Dinner After Dark At One Canada Square



Any regular EmTalks reader will know that lace is my thang. Oh and all white. When do I not wear lace or all white? It's definitely a weekly occurrence during the brighter months. If you've been reading my travel posts, you'll know that! In London recently, I was given the perfect opportunity to throw on my favourite lace dress and heels as I headed out for date night with Matt.

ScrubLove Natural Organic Coffee Body Scrub Review



As soon as Summer comes, I really start taking care of my skin properly. I know that's really bad because actually, Winter is the time when my skin hates the elements and gets super dry but I guess because I get my legs out more in Summer, for me, I focus more on keeping them soft during that period. I really need to work on doing it all year round but I hate getting out of the shower and feeling cold so I jump straight into my pyjamas in Winter whereas in Summer, I feel fine lathering myself in body butter. However, there are things you can do when in the shower or the tub to make your skin feel softer and today, I'm talking about a new exciting exfoliant product to get those legs (and any other body part you fancy!) looking amazing this Summer. Maybe I'll use it in Winter too! The best bit? It's all natural!

How To Get The Most Out Of Your Workout - Why Short Workouts Are Better; Getting In The Frame Of Mind To Work Out

elle sport
Oh hey guys, I am back and I am back with a cheeky little health and well-being post. First though, I have some really exciting news which will be coming up in July, let's just say, you're going to have lots of fitness videos and posts from me over the Summer. That's all I can say for now but I am so excited to share more fitness things with you. Summer has really only just begun and I feel that when I've worked out, eaten better and just generally moved more, I feel so much better about myself. If you read my why I will never believe in diets post, all about the 80/20 rule and how I choose to live my life, you'll know that balance is key for me. I adore Pringles and I am completely for pizza, but, eating it every single day? Nope. I couldn't do it. Once you're in the healthy mindset, you kind of don't want or crave that stuff anymore, cheat days are totally okay, but everything in moderation. Once you start working out and nourishing your body, it becomes a part of you, a part of your lifestyle, which is really great. Today I'm going to touch on the things I do to get the most out of my work out plus, a general ramble about getting into the right frame of mind to work out in the first place.

A Picnic In The Park; Favourite Healthy Picnic Foods

I am obsessed with picnics. Give me Summer weather and the first thing that springs to mind is a picnic or a BBQ and typically, as I post this, it's currently raining in the UK. The British weather seriously needs to make it's mind up! Luckily, last week the weather was perfect and I totally took advantage of it. I love nothing more than yummy nibbles which is probably why I adore picnics so much, I love grazing and tapas style food. Me and Matt went for a picnic in my local park before a game of tennis so I thought I’d take you along with me. I avoided the stodgy picnic items, sorry Pringles and sausage rolls and instead, had a healthy picnic. I’m quite pleased with how it turned out and we had a lovely evening! Hopefully it’ll give you some ideas to keep your picnic healthy!

Fool Proof Fake-Tanning Tips; Top Fake Tan Tips - Plus GIVEAWAY!

One of the things I'm asked the most is 'what fake tan do you wear?’ We all know how much I love being tanned, when I'm tanned, I feel more confident. If you asked me last year, most of the time, fortunately, I would say my tan was real because I was away so much. As someone who is completely against sunbeds, I've always chased the real sun or used fake tan. I'm a sucker for the sunshine and have always kind of turned a blind eye to the dangers of the sun, as warm and beautiful as it may be, it isn't good for us.

My Gym Bag Essentials; Let's Talk About Working Out!

When Sure challenged me to reduce the amount of bacteria in my life for 48 hours I was keen to get involved. I am such a clean freak, I always have anti-baterical hand gel in my bag and because I'm always working out, I'm always feeling a little unclean. I'm forever reading horror stories about how many germs are on toilet doors and the bottom of handbags for example but Sure challenged me to show you guys that nothing can interfere with social events with their new Sure Anti Bac anti-perspirant (trust me, I'm the girl who still goes to the gym even when she has meetings an hour later) when you're busy, you've got to fit things in! As most of you know if you've read my fitness section, I'm a big gym bunny, fitness is one of my favourite things in the world so naturally, I took the new Anti-Bac for a spin on a run with me and in a spin class...

Top Summer Travel Beauty Items; Top Beauty Products To Take On Holiday!

best products to take on holiday
I travel a lot and I certainly don't travel lightly so this certainly wont be the first of my top travel/holiday beauty posts! Holiday beauty/travel beauty is my favourite thing. Replenishing, beautiful products which usually result in the nicest glow and always leave me feeling hydrated. I love nothing more than pampering myself around the sun loungers and replenishing myself after sun exposure. Today I'm talking about a few things I've pulled straight out of my travel bag from my recent trip to Cyprus (blog post coming soon about that trip), these things have been on many trips with me over the past few months so it was only right to tell you why they're in my make up bag every single trip! I think it's so good to look at the best beauty products to take on holiday because there is so much choice! It's seriously hard to choose only a few. I'm really not a hand luggage kinda gal!
