Hello hello, I hope you are all so well right now. It’s a given that not one of us would choose to be enduring a global pandemic but here we are and we have to get through it somehow. That somehow could mean giving into the grief of it all and letting it get the better of us, or it could mean accepting that we are in it together whether we like it or not and trying to find a way to make the best out of it. The future is bright. We have so much to look forward to. Making the best out of a bad situation is not something anyone wants to do but I have to say throughout this, making the best of things is something I am seeing happen all over the world and it makes me so proud of us as a human race. When we have to dig deep we do and we have the resilience to deal with anything. It's important to remember sunshine always follows the rain! I'm someone who always makes my to do list longer than my arm and always finds a way to keep busy, I'm not saying that's a good thing as I think it's equally as important to stop and rest, however, we all deal with things in our own way. A challenge for me is taking it slowly and doing nothing at all. I have had a lot of messages from people saying they're bored or want some ideas of things to do during this period, so I hope this post will inspire you.

What To Buy In The ASOS Sale

*AUGUST 12TH UPDATE* 20% off extra on top of sale asos

Not gonna lie, asos has always been a fave of mine. It's one of those websites I've grown up with, from the days when they showed you how to copy a celebrities style, to now, one of the biggest retailers of all time. It's exciting and I just love them as a company, I was even lucky enough to visit their factory a few years back and totally fan girled. I spotted they've got a pretty epic sale on so I keep updating this blog post with their latest promo codes and sales (not sponsored, I wish, asos take all my money lol) it was where you got 20% off everything when you spent £100. It was perfect if you already had your eye on something or you were saving for one of the big brand names but now can get 20% off SALE prices today - maybe you just want some comfy clothes or new trainers. Open up, I've put together the best buys. If you were wanting something from asos anyway, you may as well do it with 20% off! Shop asos.

P.S Don't miss, what to buy in The White Company sale. 

Don't miss: what to buy in the Anthroplogie sale.

Hello guys, hope you are so well, you may have noticed I've been doing lots of reviews on my blog, yesterday I wrote about best leggings to buy, then the best trainers and today I thought it was about time to finally write about the best All Saints leather jackets to buy and do a review of All Saints leather jackets in general. I thought it was the perfect time to review the jackets and answer any questions you may have whilst they are on sale (an extra 20% off the sale price this weekend only)! 

PS. For my US readers, Nordstrom have an All Saints sale here.

Marble leggings sold out but similar here, here and here. Grey sports bra online here

Hey guys hope you are so well, my inbox on Instagram has been out of control (in a good way hehe) recently with people asking me for recommendations for the best leggings so I thought today it was time to talk to you about that! I am going to be talking about the best workout leggings (squat proof leggings, of course) and sweat proof leggings for workouts plus just really lovely leggings for day to day wear because who doesn't want to wear leggings with a comfy jumper over the top? The best thing is, most of these leggings double up, let's call it athleisure, you can wear them to pilates or for a run but also, wear them with a nice jumper over the top too. We love a multi-tasking wardrobe item. P.S, I've also got you covered if you're looking for the best sports bras to buy or best workout trainers

Favourite Beauty And Skincare Products During Lockdown


Ad affiliate used throughout and Ad gifted products featured, not sponsored - 

Hey everyone, firstly, I hope you are well and safe, that's what matters the most right now. You might be getting your happiness from going for runs right now, eating or making banana bread, having a nap, keeping busy or just doing a face mask, whatever little thing it is that's making you happy right now, take it! There's no right or wrong here. I've really toned down my make up regime during lockdown, aka, barely applying make up but focusing more on replenishing everything, using good hair masks, face masks, having the time to moisturise and do lots of home workouts. I've been applying make up and doing my hair maybe once a week, the days I've got photo/video shoot days or Zoom client calls ha *side note, most of the time I look like a sweaty, potato so please don't feel you need a whole beauty routine during lockdown, it's what works for you* but also, I get pleasure out of a good face and hair mask and a nice pamper so I've been enjoying indulging too. I just thought I'd write a little round up of the top beauty products I am loving right now during lockdown.

My Baking And Healthier Snacks Recipe E-Book - Healthier Easy Recipes

healthy ebook

Ad my own product - all photos edited using EmsPresets 

Hi guys hope you are so well! Over the weekend I finally launched my recipe ebook eek! I am so excited to finally have it live and ready to go, honestly I have wanted to make this for you forever. I can't believe how many of you have shared creations you've been making already! As most of you will know if you've read any of the recipes on my blog or seen them on my Instagram over the last few years, I have loved baking for years. This isn't just a jumping on the banana bread hype train kinda thing during lockdown (however, those who have found their love for baking and banana bread thanks to lockdown, I salute you hehe).

I have actually grown up baking, making a mess in the kitchen and I definitely get this baking love from my Grandmas. For me, baking is like therapy. None of us want to be in a position where we are living through a pandemic but a silver lining from lockdown that I am prepared to take is that I have more time to finally bake! It's something I saved just for weekends before, but now, I've been whipping up things most days haha! I've been wanting to launch my own little place with all my favourite recipes (and exciting new ones) for quite some time and I thought, ‘come on girl, use this time to do something you’ve always dreamed about', and that’s what I did! It was already in motion, but we picked up the pace a little! I thought I would write this blog post in the hopes it answers any questions you may have about my baking e-book and to give you some more information! Thank you so much in advance for your support. #EatWithEm

PS. I've added my favourite baking ingredients and you can buy them online too!
