This is a bit of a different post for me today, but following on from the recent events surrounding the death of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement across the world, I’ve been reflecting on not only my own experiences as a lighter-skinned black woman but also what I’ve been doing so far in my life, to contribute to racial equality.

My favourite ways to unwind after a day WFH

Recently, my morning and evening routines have become my landmarks for every day and I’m really precious about what I do and don’t do within that time. Since not going into the office each day, I’ve really enjoyed getting some extra time back which is usually sucked up with the daily commute and am making the most of it by taking some extra time to relax and start or end my days in the best way for me.

6 Ways To Style your way through ‘No Spend January’

January often feels like theeeeeee longest month of the year. It follows all of the fun and festivities of December with a sudden, much more serious tone. We love to use this time to set new goals and resolutions, get our heads down into a busy period at work and make those all-important self-improvements after reflecting on our mistakes or downfalls from the previous year. After chatting to work colleagues and friends, it seems like this month is absolutely full to the brim of healthy eating, no alcohol and zero spending.

Why it’s important to have the Confidence to Be Yourself with Fashion & Style

Fashion and style is a part of our everyday lives, whether you like to think it is or not. Each morning when you pick out what top to wear, or which shoes are most appropriate for the day you are making a conscious decision on how to style yourself for the day ahead.
