one year on

Yesterday, my Twitter feed was full of screenshots of the UCAS website, pictures of celebratory dinners and memes like this guy who drank straight from his hip flask live on morning TV (don't worry, he was actually celebrating!). I got my A level results last year. I was so nervous I thought I might pass … Continue reading one year on

primark – land of the dupes

Primark is the land of dupes at the moment- whether it's gingham dresses like those in Zara, Prada style mules, a palette like Urban Decay's Naked, lip kits that aren't all that different from the Kylie Cosmetics ones or the shoes that look exactly like Gucci's: The newest set of dupes is a make up … Continue reading primark – land of the dupes

treat yo’self

Hello! Last week, loads of parcels arrived at the same time so I thought I would do a mini haul (can you tell nothing is happening in my life?). Read on for jewellery, books and some Colourpop bits and bobs! The first thing I got was a ring from Featheroak, a brand I first heard … Continue reading treat yo’self

live well with IBD

Good evening, Today all around the world, thousands of people will be wearing purple, over-sharing, selling cakes, hashtagging and doing what they can to raise awareness of Inflammatory Bowel Disease. This World IBD Day, I thought I would make my blogging come back and talk about why I disappeared from the blogosphere, and talk about the … Continue reading live well with IBD

chocolate bark

Good morning! Now, this post is slightly later than planned (hence the mini eggs) but better late than never? This Easter, I made biscuits, cakes and chocolate bark! It went down an absolute treat, and wasn't something I had heard of until I went deep into the foodie side of the internet, so I'll share how … Continue reading chocolate bark

beauty haul

Hello! I've never done one of these, and I probably never will again but I have bought lots of cute bargain beauty bits and bobs that I just want to show off! All of the make up products listed are cruelty free, and available on the high street. A couple of weeks ago, I got Collection's … Continue reading beauty haul

mum’s day

Hello, and Happy Mother's Day! Normally, I'd put a cringe picture on Facebook or Instagram of me and my Mum. I'd write something ironic, or share a private joke to maintain my air of mystery... However, this year I thought I would do something a little different. Here are all of the reasons my Mum … Continue reading mum’s day

adjustments

Hello! I said something about my IBD the other day, which in retrospect really made me laugh: 'This is my life now. I'm kind of just getting over it.' I mean, bloody hell past-Izzy, why so melodramatic?! Once I stopped laughing at myself, I figured I had a point. When I received my diagnosis, I … Continue reading adjustments

playlist!

Hello! I'm always updating my playlist over on Spotify and as easy as it is to just embed it in a post and call it a day, I thought I'd talk about some of my favourite new songs! GSAP, Stormzy That's right- we're starting with a whole album! I feel like we've been waiting for … Continue reading playlist!
