Building 3 Healthier Breakfasts

Posted on by Zoe

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and it’s a universal truth that breakfast is also by far the best (with brunch interchangeable if it’s the weekend). The possibilities are endless - smoothies, smoothie bowls, porridge, granola, muesli, pancakes, waffles, scrambled eggs, poached eggs…I could go on, and on, and on. It’s just a shame that I’m not enough of a morning person to have road-tested Bill’s pancakes yet, which I have been told … Continue reading

The Playlist With Lilly Ahlberg

Posted on by Zoe

I’m so excited to finally share with you all a brand new series on my blog called “The Playlist”, where I’ll be raiding some of my favourite musicians, tastemakers and trailblazers’ song stashes. I’ve got friends who are doing some incredible things, and who truly inspire me, so I’m going to be discovering the songs and melodies that are inspiring them, and documenting them right here every month in 2015. For the first instalment of The Playlist, I’ve … Continue reading

Being an Introvert, and My Experiences With Social Anxiety

Posted on by Zoe

This post was a difficult one for me to write, but in 2015 I have vowed to open up more. I hope it helps anyone who’s dealt with or is dealing with social anxiety, or for anyone who feels like they’re alone in the way they feel. I’ve always preferred staying in to going out, I’ve always had a few close friends than a big group of friends, and I’ve always steered the conversation more … Continue reading

A Night at Luke’s Eating House

Posted on by Zoe

If there’s one thing I love possibly more than music, skincare or Topshop, it’s going out to eat. I’m still getting the hang of rustling up clean, healthy meals at home (my fridge has never looked greener!), so going out for a meal feels like a real treat, when I can take a break from the daily grind and screens of all shapes and sizes - except when I’m whipping out the camera on my … Continue reading

DIY Project: An Office Space

Posted on by Zoe

The beginning of a new year calls for ambitious new plans, and having my very own workspace is one of them (to indulge my inner geek, of course). So, continuing on from my last few “home” posts, I thought I’d let you all in on my office dreams - yep, some girls have wardrobe goals, I have office goals. I haven’t ever had one, but as I spend most of my evenings surgically attached to … Continue reading

On Repeat: JP Cooper

Posted on by Zoe

There’s a boy whose songs I have been playing a lot around my house. I mean, a LOT. Spotify already knows by now who I’m going to search for when I get home each evening; I barely need to type a J and there he is. His name is JP Cooper - the JP stands for John Paul (not to be confused with Sean Paul, and JP’s dreads are way better). With a sound pleaching … Continue reading

My Top Beauty Discoveries of 2014

Posted on by Zoe

It’s been a brilliant year for beauty launches, and clattering through my disorganised makeup/beauty collection (gimme a break, I just moved…like, 3 months ago), I realised that I’ve acquired a handful of products this year that instantly became staples. Here are 5 that I discovered in 2014, and I’m sure I’ll keep on repurchasing… 1. Vaseline Spray & Go moisturiser - Don’t you just hate those moments when you feel like you’ve got plenty of spare change, so you … Continue reading

8 Wardrobe Staples For ’15

Posted on by Zoe

Slowly, I’ve been building a wardrobe wishlist in my mind. My favourite bloggers can be blamed for the length of it by now - culottes worn beautifully by Lucy Williams, a dungaree-playsuit worn over a long-sleeved top by Clare Harrison, and a fur clutch by ASOS stylist (my favourite, FYI) Megan Ellaby. Whilst I know that I am a “basics” kinda girl, bloggers have been getting me back into the swing of trends, and into fashion … Continue reading

My New Year’s Resolutions

Posted on by Zoe

HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2015 has arrived, and 365 blank days lie ahead, waiting to be lived and remembered. While that thought fills me with equal measures of pressure and relief, I know that making a few resolutions are sure to help pepper the days ahead with laughter, love, peace, music, magic and all of the good stuff. Quite often, resolutions can quickly turn into unenjoyable obligations, so if you’re yet to make any, my tip is to … Continue reading

Staying in or going out? Pick your NYE playlist…

Posted on by Zoe

Well, we’ve nearly made it to the end of 2014. It’s almost time to brush off your sequinned threads, smear on a red lippy and head out to the midnight ball-drop. Or, if you’re like me, you’ll be getting cosy in your pj’s and watching Jools Holland on the sofa with a bag of popcorn the size of your head. I much prefer a stay-in NYE over a going out, but as I’m aware that some of you … Continue reading
