I didn’t really come to London with career in mind, I saw it as a working holiday, emphasis on the holiday. I wanted to see the world and saw work as a way of making this happen financially. It’s incredible how quickly that changed.
I entered the Young Cannes Lions awards this weekend with a colleague of mine. To enter, you must be a creative under 30 years old. Around 100 teams (of two) enter from the UK and the winners go to Cannes to compete against the winning teams from countries worldwide.
Happy Pi day guys! The date known as 3.14 became known as Pi Day in 1988 and is celebrated in countries with backwards month to date numbering systems. Now I know this is neither Australia (where I grew up) or the UK (where I am currently living), BUT who can resist a day dedicated to pies?
Welcome to my first food post, albeit a few days late, but hey, maybe everyone else’s hamentashen recipes have made you want to make these yummy little biscuits yourself. Here’s how you can easily whip up a batch! I've made mine pink for good measure and filled them with delicious, healthy, refined-sugar free home made jam!
This week in London the 'Beast from the East' came knocking. Extreme colds swept across the UK coming in from Siberia and London turned a crisp shade of white. The snow was absolutely magical and as an Aussie girl who only really saw snowfall properly in December last year, I leapt out of bed, grabbed my camera and took to the streets.
Spectrum Collection create beautifully, bold makeup brushes for 'total mer-babes', quote, unquote. They are vegan, cruelty-free and will be forever best friends with my Lush face tint. I'm all about beauty products that are good for my skin and good for the environment!
When you're new to a city the thought of sorting out your beauty trustees is daunting. Where should you go to get your hair done? Waxes? Nails? Eyebrows? The list goes on. I've been let down by apps like treat well before so here is a true review from me to you.
I'm going to put this out there. If you are heading to the Netherlands and you only have a couple of days, and the dates are right, prioritise Keukenhof because Amsterdam is always there, but Keukenhof is only around for the spring. Transport yourself to this magical place where 7 million blooms come to life in an intersection of art and nature.
Welcome to the first of many Hooray Hayley Outfit of the Day posts, that will be part of the series Hooray #OOTD. I wanted to share with you how I styled my Valentine's #OOTD and hopefully through this series I can help you out with tips and tricks for adding colour with your wardrobe! I know for a lot of people experimenting with colour, prints and pattern all at once would be a bit much, but with a little bit of thought, it's really quite easy to create outfits that give you confidence and radiate with personality.
Today I went behind the scenes with JK Rowling at the exhibition 'Harry Potter: A History of Magic' at the British Library. At times I felt like I could understand the ways her mind worked, and I really appreciated her twists on folklore and ancient beliefs. With the extra charm of being in the British Library, I loved seeing the reference materials which inspired character names, plant species, classes at Hogwarts and so much more.
