When new seasons roll around, I always try and have a little refresh of my wardrobe, and autumn is no exception! I pull out the vac pack of jumpers out from under the bed, and invest in some new, ladder-less tights. This year, autumn has crept up on us pretty stealthily thanks to the warm days that have littered the first few weeks of September. I’ve been a bit slower on updating my wardrobe for the new season because I just don’t want to put the flip-flops away! My go-to destination My first port of call for any new additions is MK1 Shopping Park. It’s not far from me at all, and is a great one-stop shop for all my essentials (and non-essentials…). It has one of the best Primarks around this area that isn’t littered with clothes, and has a good range of high street stores to Boot. Plus, there’s a decent selection of restaurants across the way that mean you can stop for a bite to eat after a shopping sesh! Favourite shops? Marks and Spencer has fast become one of my favourite places to go when I need high quality basics. They have really upped their game in… View Post

The George Inn Maulden is a recently restored 16th century pub. Their ethos for the refurbishment was to create a ‘home from home.’ Their 122 cover restaurant also has seven boutique hotel rooms which will be up and running later. Located just outside Ampthill in neighbouring Maulden, The George Inn is surrounded by the ancient Amptill forest which makes a magical backdrop for the country pub. At first glance, The George Inn is very much your traditional local pub, but step inside the door and you will be greeted with warm, modern decor. The inside is the complete opposite to what you might first assume a ‘pub’ to be like; there are no dark, dingy corners and every inch is lit by bright spotlights which make this a refreshing and welcoming venue for dining, a glass of wine, or a relaxing evening. The launch menu is ever-changing as they receive feedback from their guests. Their food is classic, wholesome and not particularly fussy. The choice on the menu was varied and there was enough to suit everyone from salads to fish and chips! To start, Harry and I decided on the garlic pizza bread and the selection of meats. This… View Post

Lets get one thing out the way first, shall we? HOW is it September tomorrow!? August sounds like summer, but September is a little too close to Autumn for my liking! Okay, now, the suede jacket. So impractical for English summers (and autumns), but oh so perfect. I’ve been umming and ahhing for a while now about investing in one, and I finally caved. Completely persuaded by the girls at work, and totally enabled by Missguided, this gorgeous grey-brown faux suede jacket is finally mine. The cropped, light style makes this a cover up when summer keeps switching on and off! The only problem, is I now want it in every single colour – Missguided have truly managed to create a staple that is necessary to own in every shade. Mustard, burgundy, jade green or plain black… Your move. As per, I’m sporting a bardot top. This was a mega find when we were in Amsterdam. Harry and I went a bit mad in Pull & Bear because everything was so cheap (mind, that was before the pound plummeted…) I love the tie sleeve details and the slightly open back that this top has. I’m becoming braver with wearing white; in… View Post

I have been itching to get my hands on the Rosie for Autograph makeup range for a while now, so come pay day, I decided to treat myself to a few things! Rosie Huntingdon-Whiteley is already the face of her gorgeous lingerie range at Marks & Spencer and I am a big fan. So when I saw she was releasing a range of makeup, I was pretty excited. I’m arguably a little late to the party with the range, but I still get a bit excited about make up – albeit, not as much as I used to – so it still warrants a blog post in my eyes. I’ve watched Lisa Eldridge’s makeup tutorial using Rosie’s products so many times so I used that as a starting point. If it’s good enough for Lisa, it’s good enough for me! I picked up the miracle concealer on a bit of a whim as I was in need of a new one. I haven’t tried a twist up concealer in a very long time because I don’t think they’re very hygienic. However, I’ve been applying this with a clean finger and blending with a fluffy brush which rectifies the problem. I have shade… View Post

When I was applying for jobs in the last few months of uni, I was always applying for them with a small sense of dread at the pit of my stomach. Job interviews.  There is pretty much no way of getting out of these – if you want the job, you’ve gotta do it. That didn’t stop me from being super nervous for the two I had this year! I’m confident in most things, but I get so incredibly nervous for job interviews. When I feel like I’m being judged, that’s when I get anxious. I can’t be the only one in the world that gets bad nerves when it comes to interviews, so I thought I’d share my job interview tips for creating a more confident mindset. I had two out of two successful interviews this year, one of which has landed me my job at Neo PR which I am enjoying so much. So, how can you ace your next interview? Do your homework So you’ve made the job application which will have probably involved some research on the company already. Make sure you know your CV and cover letter/personal statement inside out so you are prepared for… View Post
