blogger presets for Lightroom

Blog post features my own product - Hey guys, happy Monday! I'm super excited to be sharing a project with you that I've been working on for the past 6 months! I get asked on a daily basis how I edit my Instagram photos and what filters I use for my Instagram photos so it was about time I got this blog post live. It's been a long time in the making and has taken a ton of work but I'm proud to announce that I'm launching my own Lightroom presets and filters to help you speed up your Instagram editing process. I have made a dedicated site with all my top tips for editing Instagram photos too called emspresets.com

Hey guys, today I wanted to write a nice positive blog post so I thought I'd write down some ways to have a better week. It's taken me a long time to get to the point where I wake up on a morning and feel excited and ready to smash the week, obviously, I am human and do not feel like this every week (no-one does and we are all facing battles people in the online world may know nothing about) BUT here are a few tips I have to try and make sure you have a better week, no matter what life may throw at you.

Everything You Need To Know About Pensions: How To Set Up A Pension, What Is A Pension? Do I Need A Pension?

When I first started writing my blog I did it for two main reasons: to help me enter the degree course I wanted to do and also as a hobby to satisfy my love of English, creativity and beauty. It could have gone either way (I didn't really know what a blog was when I started one) but I quickly found that blogging gave me great fulfilment and introduced me to so many lovely, like minded people and friends for life. I started off writing about my life then moved to beauty, fashion, fitness (and still do talk about these topics daily) but actually, over the years I quickly found I also like writing about important topics such as how to save money, everything you need to know about renting or buying a house in London and todays topic? How to set up a pension, what even is a pension and do you need a pension?! Today I want to talk about something they definitely didn't teach us in school but something I hopefully can help you with. Yep, I had no idea I even needed a pension... let's discuss.

What To Do On Valentines Day

valentines day gift ideas

Advertorial Post with Aviva - Love it or hate it, Valentine's day is around the corner. For me, I’ve always loved the idea of Valentine's day, whether I’m single, taken or seeing someone. I think Valentine's day is first and foremost about showing yourself some love, so buy yourself some roses, eat some melted chocolate or run a nice candle lit bath, or, you can go and spend Valentine's day with your besties. It goes without saying that you should show your loved ones love all year round, but I do love the excuse to go all out on Valentine's day too.

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Supermodel Lipsticks Review And Swatches

Charlotte Tilbury Supermodel Lipsticks Review
PR gifted items featured* - If you read my latest review of Charlotte Tilbury's Cleanser, the Goddess Cleansing Ritual or my review of Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk you'll probably know I'm a huge Charlotte Tilbury fan and have organically been buying the brand since the get-go. Who doesn't love Charlotte Tilbury products? To me, it's a brand that gets me really giddy about one of my passions, beauty. Charlotte Tilbury popped into the beauty world with glitz, glam and sparkle and truly took it by storm. I've always loved how the Kardashian's do their make up (love them or hate them, they have flawless make up). I love anything bronzed and flawless goddess like and you could say Charlotte Tilbury is one of my favourite brands for creating exactly those looks (helloooo just look at the Charlotte Tilbury Bar Of Gold Highlighter) and tell me she hasn't nailed that brief. Charlotte Tilbury has launched some new Supermodel lipsticks so today, a review and swatches of the Charlotte Tilbury Supermodel Limited Edition new matte lipsticks.

My Diet and Fitness Over The Last Year

It's the start of the year and that means everyone's talking about fitness, health and wellbeing. Love it or hate it, it happens every year. I approached my January/new year fitness a little bit different this year. In previous years, I've taken the whole of Christmas off and just eaten everything and refused to go to the gym (TOTALLY FINE BY THE WAY, FOOD IS LIFE and you know what, our bodies need rest after a busy year) but then I really struggle to 'get back on it' in January/Feb. I feel as if over the last year (2018) it's been so difficult to stick to a workout routine because I've been living out of hotels or between cities so actually, Christmas time for me this year was the only period where my life was in one place for a set amount of time and I lived for the routine so for once, just smashed out the gym during Christmas. I know to some that sounds absolutely crazy but honestly? I do it for my mind and driving to the gym with no phone, no work commitments, having a little bit of me time and breathing on Boxing Day, made me feel incredible. I feel as if 2018 was so stressful in so many ways and one of the only ways I can de-stress myself (apart from a long hot bath with a Jo Malone candle and all the chocolate) is hammering it out at the gym for 45 mins or stretching my legs and getting some fresh air. I go to the gym a total stressed mess and I leave feeling epic. Today I want to talk to you about my diet and fitness regime over the last year I get a lot of questions about my gym routine and diet so hopefully this may answer some.
