Five Things My Mum Taught Me About Beauty

Five Things My Mum Taught Me About Beauty

I’ve been into makeup and skincare since my teenage years. I loved going into Boots and scouring the brightly lit shelves with foundations, mascaras and nail polishes neatly arranged in plastic casing, making mental lists of which product to buy when I got my pocket money. When I couldn’t afford the Dream Matte Mousse or MaxFactor False Lash Effect that I desired, I would scour my parents’ bathroom cabinet for…

Here’s Everything I’ve Got My Eye On This Black Friday

Here’s Everything I’ve Got My Eye On This Black Friday

I’ll be the first to admit that I always forget about Black Friday. Maybe it’s because the past couple of years I haven’t been in a strong enough financial position to go mad, or perhaps it’s due to the odd timing of the event, as Thanksgiving isn’t really a thing here in the UK. However this year I’m determined to pick a couple of things up, so here’s a rundown…

A Year After Sobriety

A Year After Sobriety

This week marks a year since I started working on my relationship with alcohol. Before we launch into it: to confirm, I am not currently sober. I initially went sober for 100 days, and now do periods of sobriety to check in with myself and to confirm that I still feel in control of my drinking. I won’t lie, it feels absolutely unreal writing that down – if you’d told…

I Don’t Know Who I Am And It Scares Me

I Don’t Know Who I Am And It Scares Me

Two Fridays ago, I was told that I wasn’t going to be working with a particular company. I’d spent the best part of three months meeting with them, sending over summaries of myself, trying to persuade them that I would be a good investment of their time over the next year at least. The lady I’d met with told me that while she really liked me, the company needed to…

What Happened In October

What Happened In October

Can you even believe that October has been and gone? We’re heading swiftly towards 2018 and every time I remember this I feel mildly panicked. Where did 2017 go?? It was a ridiculously busy year for self improvement so I kiiind of get how it’s flown by but that doesn’t excuse anything… My September self made an accurate prediction: October was a good month. I’ve been especially happy these past…

Working For Myself: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Working For Myself: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

As it’s nearly Halloween, let’s talk about something scary: the post-graduation fear of finding regular employment. I certainly had my fair share of nightmares in the months leading up to my dissertation hand-in, and many centred on how the heck I was going to find a company who wanted to employ someone who’s skillset was not even remotely connected to their degree. Social media content production for an African history…

Four Things I Wish Brands And Agencies Knew About Influencers

Four Things I Wish Brands And Agencies Knew About Influencers

Hi, I’m Lucy. I’m a twenty two year-old YouTuber, podcast co-host and fresh-out-the-womb blogger – in most professional circles, I’m considered an influencer. This term came to be because I, along with many other people with a social media following, make a fair chunk of my income through working with brands to help them advertise their products to my audience. They have a product to promote, we come up with…

What Happened In September

What Happened In September

The first month of the school year has been and gone. My newborn blog is now four weeks old. Oh, how time passes. September has been good to me – not in clear, obvious ways, such as big projects landing in my inbox or exciting life developments, but more so in terms of my frame of mind. Most noticeably, I think I’m finally out of the creative rut I’ve been…

Do I Have The Body To Be A Fashion Blogger?

Do I Have The Body To Be A Fashion Blogger?

I like to consider myself a relatively well-adjusted twenty two year-old woman. I’m self-employed, making ends meet, go to therapy once a week and get nearly all of my five-a-day. I could be drinking wine in my kitchen every night and avoiding the iMessages I need to respond to like twenty year-old Lucy but no, here I am pushing through those urges to sit on my floor and eat pasta,…
