Best Workout Leggings 2021 - Which Workout Leggings Should I Buy?


Ad affiliate used throughout some Ad gifted items mentioned - 

Hello hello, hope you are doing well! I feel like I've been living in leggings for the last year, not just for my home workouts, home spin sessions and runs but also, for my daily walks and my daily Netflix sessions. I've definitely been able to put my leggings through some durability tests. I thought it was the perfect time to do an updated best leggings blog post because every time I post about leggings on Instagram I get so many questions about sizing, durability and more. The best thing about leggings is that most of these leggings double up as athleisure or loungewear, so you might be wearing them to a spin class one day, a HIIT workout the next but you bet they'll see you through your walk too and be comfy enough for your Netflix session too.

Gucci Marmont Bag Review - Things To Know Before Buying A Gucci Bag / Purse


Ad affiliate throughout - 
The Gucci Marmont bag launched years ago but it's one of the most iconic Gucci bags and one of those bags that just keeps getting better and coming back stronger. I started with my Gucci Marmont Belt, got some Gucci shoes and then the Gucci matelass√© bag came and made my Gucci love affair even stronger. I remember buying my Gucci Marmont bag, I went for velvet and I fell in love, I'd wanted it for so long. Today I thought I'd do a review of the Gucci Marmont Flap bag after having it for years, as well as answering the question: is the Gucci Marmont bag is still worth it in 2021? If you're wondering whether you should buy the Gucci Marmont bag, this review should help you.

Obagi Hydro-Drops Facial Serum Review


Advertorial - If you've read any of my skincare posts you'll know I am a sucker for a good serum, it was a very good day indeed then when I was introduced to the Obagi Hydro-Drops Facial Serum.

Put it this way, I was very excited to try when I read reviews saying it's the best hydration product people have used. Open up for my full review of the Obagi Hydro-Drops Facial Serum.

Best High Protein Snacks / Foods


Ad affiliate / PR throughout - If you read my best healthy snacks post you'll know I love snacking, snack queen over here. One thing I've been trying to do as a bit of a New Years resolution is eat more protein, in whatever way I can. I work out a lot and I definitely do not eat as much protein as my body apparently needs. A quick Google will tell you how important protein is in the diet and I definitely need more because I am so active. I'm not a personal trainer or nutritionist so do always speak to the health professionals first before making any drastic changes but I thought I'd pop together a list of some of my personal favourite high protein snacks, aka the things I am trying to grab to snack on at the moment. I'm a sucker for a loaf of sourdough and honestly can go through the whole thing in record time, there's nothing wrong with that (bread or life) but I've been training myself to grab some high protein snacks alongside my sourdough...

The Best New In Beauty Launches Of 2021 - 2021 New Beauty Launches



Ad affiliate / PR throughout - When a new year lands, new beauty products land too. Personally, I’ve been trying to have more ‘self care’ and ‘wellbeing’ days and let’s be honest, we have to take happiness from whatever we can and for me, that’s a bit of me time. I talked about my favourite lockdown beauty/wellbeing products back in May, and here I am, still self-caring months later but that's another blog post entirely. It can be overwhelming seeing so many new launches and trying to see what’s worth a shot (you’ll probably know I have my old favourites, check out my best beauty products of 2020 for that) but there’s always room for some newbies in my life. On todays blog post, see my round up of the best new beauty launches of 2021 that I think are genuinely worth trying... get ready for the new in beauty you should try this year.

If you’re lucky enough to be locked down with your partner, you may be wondering what you should do to celebrate Valentines Day together and mix things up a little from date night in the lounge (or, you may be missing them lots and wondering what you can do to celebrate with them from afar)... or you may not be thinking about it at all... however, this post is for my Valentine’s Day lovers… that’s me. So many things have been cancelled in the last year, really important things for many people so I am trying to embrace the little things and make them as wonderful as possible, even just from home and after celebrating many different loved ones birthdays virtually in lockdown, I feel like I am armed with fun things to do for special occasions during lockdown as well as gifts you can send near and far! 

PS. I know Valentines day is a commercialised holiday and we should tell people we love them everyday - that goes without saying, but I also enjoy using the day to celebrate, so as well as my boyfriend, I send the people I love gifts too - see it as GALentines day, why not send someone something lovely to brighten a tough year? If you’re reading this I assume you love Valentines Day too, below you’ll find lots of gift ideas including some different gift ideas for Valentines Day ad some things to do, I hope it will help you if you’re looking for Valentines lockdown inspiration.
