    Floral power

    It is officially cold outside. Like time to turn the heating on cold! I have even invested in a beret, now that I have come across 5 different bloggers rocking berets on Instagram.

    15 min easy Korean Beef Salad

    Like the English weather, I too am not entirely ready to let go of summer. I mean yes I do want chunky knits and hearty stews but I also still want tanned skin, summer dresses, and fresh salads. Korean beef salad has become our happy medium, the fact that it’s towards the healthy side helps too.

    Dressing for you

    Recently the boyfriend and I were sat watching the Apprentice and he turned to ask me to explain how women dress. Honored and a little baffled, even I struggled to put into words why women have so many ‘styles’

    He went on to explain that for men it was mostly pretty simple… you found a style you liked and you stuck with it.

    Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer dupe!

    Happy Monday sasspots!

    Are you kinda amazed by seeing this post? Yeah me too! Not really. We are starting week one of my new blog schedule and I thought I would kick it off with a little money saving tip 🙂

    I have long been a super fan of the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, it’s been my go-to for years and I think anybody who’s tried it would agree there isn’t a comparison. Ok so maybe Urban Decay Naked oooor Shape tape… but I am in forever attempting to find cheaper dupes to my already expensive makeup.

    8 years in England

    Suede biker jacket and culottes

    I’m not entirely sure where time has gone but ladies and gentleman it is in fact 8 years this month since I moved to England.

    Don’t worry, I’m feeling mega old now too. SORRY MOM!

    The years have literally flown by and although I don’t know if will be spending the next 8 years here, I do look back at the past years with some mixed feelings. They have been 8 great years, they have been hard, they have been sad and they have been life-changing. I have made some amazing friends, made some enemies and met people I don’t even remember.

    Leaving my job: One year on

    They say time flies when you’re having fun. These past 365 days have just disappeared. To the point, I hadn’t even realized a year had already passed. A whole year since I made the craziest, stupidest, biggest and best decision of my life.

     

    Just over a year ago I handed in my notice and walked out of a full-time job into… well into nothing.
