Looking Back On A Glorious Autumn

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the most optimistic person and god help me, I love a good old-fashioned moan. But after 2017’s far-from-perfect summer, I decided to change my mindset walking into Autumn, and I’m pleased to report that it has been positively glorious. I decided to embrace positivety, practice forgiveness and let go of relationships…

I Just Uploaded My First Ever YouTube Video!

Um, holy sh*t. I can’t believe what just happened. This may not seem like a big deal to most people, but for me, this is HUGE. I’ve been blogging for about six years now and have absolutely loved every second of creating photo content. And, as is always the case with comfort zones, you develop a ‘style’ with angles, outfits,…

Closing Notes Of Summer

Okay, so summer may have technically ended a couple of weeks ago, but I had to share these absolutely lush pictures we shot earlier in the season while I could still get away with not posting tights, coats and boots. This shoot also happens to be one of my very few favourite moments of summer 2017. To say this summer…

The Bank Holiday Weekend In Pictures

Sometimes, when a holiday just isn’t an option, a weekend worth of spending quality time with your favourite people, persuing hobbies and eating great food (washed down with Prosecco, of course), can be just as fulfilling. Which is exactly how we decided to spend this long weekend. The fact that it was consistantly sunny without so much as a cloud…

You’re 28 today and were meant to be celebrating your birthday in Turkey, but things didn’t quite work out as planned at the last minute.

Our Epic Turkish Fail

So here I am, NOT sitting on the beach sipping a cocktail in Turkey like I said I would be in my last post. Not wearing any of the new clothes I bought for my holiday. Not anywhere but back on my own sofa writing this and drowning my sorrows in a tub of ice cream. We packed our bags,…

BRB – Off To Turkey

Last year, it seemed like all we did was travel, which is why, save from our little trip to Milan in March, this year has seemed a little quiet so far. However, things look they’re about to get a whole lot more interesting as James has booked us a spontaneous holiday to Olu Deniz for my birthday this week! My…

My Battle With Anxiety And How I Overcame It

  In case you didn’t already know, its #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek. And right up there with women empowerment, the fight against cancer and animal welfare, mental health is a cause that is very close to my heart since I know first hand how lonely, isolated and terrified one can feel, sometimes for no apparent reason. I believe that bloggers are very fortunate…

Random Musings – Women’s Day, Instagram and the Best Fan Letter Ever

Since I re-launched my blog as Mascara Every Saturday, part of what I wanted to do was strip things back to the basics of blogging. Y’know. Go back to where and how it all started – where people actually shared their thoughts and opinions on subjects, before it became all about collaborations, making money and brands, brands, brands.
