New Look Spring/Summer Essentials

Features gifted items  I have always been a huge fan of New Look.

New Look, for me, have always offered affordable, high quality clothing, which suit my smart/casual style perfectly, and I was beyond excited to be sent...

Style – Sportswear that Works for Me

As a busy mum of three working from home, life can sometimes feel like a never ending cycle of school runs, emails and packed lunches.

Beauty – Are Primark Nails Worthy of the Hype?

I have a confession to make, one that probably isn’t surprising for anybody who watches my instagram stories and often sees the state of my nails on a daily basis. I am a nail biter. I try really hard not to bite them, but when I get stressed out (which seems to be all the time lately) I resort to biting them and, as a result, my nails are very...
