7 Tips For Styling Up A Rented Space

If you’ve ever lived in a student flat/most rentals, you’ll know how un-appealing they are. Why do landlords think there is nothing sexier than a brown carpet? Our current flat is in a lovely location and has a lot of potential but thanks to the aforementioned brown carpet, darkness thanks to the single window facing north, an abundance of Ikea furniture and a very fetching purple and black curtain, it’s not so cute.

I wish to god I could rip up the carpet and see the floorboards underneath, get rid of the ugly blind and replace a couple of bits of furniture. But mucking around with interiors is one of my favourite things to do in my spare time so despite the dire beginnings, I’ve worked my little space into something I’m kind of proud of.

An Instagrammer’s Guilt

The past week has been a funny one. I’ve spent a lot of time sloshing about a) in bed watching Criminal Minds b) hungover in my bed watching Criminal Minds and c) fretting about the fact I don’t have anything to post on Instagram and if I did find manage to rope something together WOULD IT GOT WITH MY THEME ??

Does this sound familiar? Do you have this problem? Worrying that your following (and my following is by no means medium sized, let alone large) might forget about you, the fact you existed on their Instagram feed and you’ll drop off the face of this internet world, never to be heard from or seen again. This is called Instagram guilt.

Beauty Products I Have My Eye On For Spring

I’ve become a bit of a beauty fan this year, choosing instead to spend my money on beauty products as opposed to falling into ASOS head first. Don’t get me wrong, I would still quite happily fall into ASOS but in an attempt to be savvier with money I’m trying not to spend my money on clothes that I’ll never wear, I’ve been looking to check out some body care shops for wonder products.

Spring is one of my favourite times of year. I adore the summer months so spring is the perfect warm up and I’m heading to Ibiza at the beginning of April which is the perfect excuse to stock up on some bits and try out some new ones.

7 Bloggers To Start Reading Right Now

I am full of love for the blogging world right now. Every day I thank my lucky stars that I plucked up the courage to start wittering away online and discover a world of incredible writers, photographs and content creators on the internet. I love finding new blogs myself and I’ve done a couple of posts in the past sharing my favourite bloggers to follow. Seeing as it is 2018, it felt darn right to do another one.

To set the scene a little bit, this marvellous idea came to me just after midnight one Tuesday night. I most definitely should have gone to bed but I knew I would forget all about this wave of inspiration the next morning. I practically got myself ready for bed, crawled back into bed and picked a ‘Musical Hits’ playlist on Spotify. And ta-dah!

7 Books You Can Completely Escape With

I’m a sucker for a book that completely removes you from your life. One that you can be enamoured with, totally lose yourself in and completely escape with. I’ve been an avid reader for as long as I can remember so I’ve read my fair share and one genre I keep returning to, not matter what age I am, is books that flirt with the supernatural/fantasy/history and the deepest of mysteries.

Sounds like your cup of tea? All of the books on this list I’ve read at least twice and I will read anything these authors throw in my direction. Finding a book that you can have a genuine connection with and find that others love too can be quite tricky but I think these books will allow you to totally escape whilst make excellent discussion points.
