8 Reality TV Shows I Can’t Help But Get Addicted to Every Year

Reality television is a bit like marmite – you either love it, or hate it. For me, I can’t get enough of it. There’s nothing worse than having no Saturday night TV in between reality series finishing and starting. What am I supposed to watch whilst I munch on my takeaway and gobble some sweeties?! I’ve slipped in and out of pretty much every reality series out there, but there are eight in particular I watch every year without fail…   The Apprentice I do hope that the theme tune to The Apprentice is now running through your head. Because…

The book that broke my heart: Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

It’s no secret that I adore a book that draws me to tears. There’s something quite magical about words on paper that have the ability to stir such strong emotions, and so when multiple people recommended Me Before You and insisted I would cry my little heart out, I couldn’t resist grabbing myself a copy even though I had no idea what the bloody thing was about. (And in case you’re wondering, they were right – I sobbed into my pillow the entire night after reaching the end.) Me Before You tells the story of quirky and colourful Louisa Clark,…

I’m happy with who won BGT, and trolling is not okay

The Britain’s Got Talent final was on TV last night (if you didn’t know that, where on earth have you been?!), and what a magnificent show it was. The finalists were spectacular – dancing, magic, death stunts, comedy, animals, music, madness – and the night was definitely a good one. I mean, the 10 year celebration that Ashley Banjo set up? In-cred-i-ble. But I’m not here to talk about the night in general. I’m here to have a good old babble about our winner. (Sooooo, if you haven’t watched it yet and don’t want a spoiler, you should go away.…

Something Old, Something New: Excerpt and Blog Tour

After a long couple of weeks with no posts thanks to ruddy exams (one down, three to go!), I have something fun and exciting for you all. Today marks the start of the blog tour for Darcie Boleyn’s Something Old, Something New, and after reviewing her Wish Upon a Christmas Cake last year, I jumped at the chance to get involved. Sadly, I haven’t time to read the book yet due to the joys of university (#notreallyjoyousatall), and so today I have an excerpt from the book to whet your appetite. I wanted to wear my baggy old joggers but…

So, I didn’t follow you back on Twitter?

I’m pretty sure it’s happened to us all. You get a new follower on Twitter at, let’s say, 8pm one night. Cool. Hey there, maybe we’ll end up being friends. But if you haven’t followed them back by the next day, well, they don’t hesitate to click the unfollow button. And sometimes it happens with the same person a few times. You’ve done nothing to offend them overnight, except not follow them back straight away. But what is so wrong with that? ** Before I get started, just a heads up. This is not a post about how I’m never…

Lusting After Dresses I Can’t Afford (And Praying I Win £500 to Spend at Maje!)

Summer is just around the corner, and I have plenty of events coming up – three holidays, my graduation and two weddings – all of which I have to find some gorgeous dresses for. After stumbling across Maje, a brand I’d not previously heard of, I fell in love with four fabulous dresses that would be just perfect. The downside? They’re pretty far out of my price range, and I can’t afford a single one. The upside? Maje happen to be running a competition to win £500 to spend. Yes please!

Meet my advertisers | April 2016

Already April has passed us by and summer is creeping up on us (and I can’t bloomin’ wait!). I had some wonderful bloggers advertise on my sidebar last month, and with shopping addicts, beauty lovers, bookworms and lots of pink, there’s definitely some great content for us girly girls to browse… www.pink-confetti.co.uk / www.twitter.com/pinkconfettiuk After living in both America and Italy, Kent-born Nicola is now settled in London and spends the spare time between her weird emergency service shifts blogging about a bit of anything and everything. Whilst her three main topics of interest are food, travel and fashion, Nicola…

Preparing for Summer Holiday Style with Aldo (plus a chance to win £500!)

I am a self-confessed holiday addict. And I’m proud of it. We all deserve to take some time off to relax in our perfect holiday setting and calm our minds. For me, a sunshine holiday is favourite, (though I do love a city break too!) and with Benidorm, Dominican Republic, Mexico and Tenerife coming up for me in 2016, I have plenty to look forward to. So when I saw that Aldo were running a competition to win £500 to spend with them, I jumped at the chance and browsed their site to pick out some of my summer favourites.…

Having a well-deserved #CalmDay

“Calm the mind, change the world.“ It’s no secret that I am stressed. Whilst juggling two part time jobs, a mathematics degree, numerous deadlines, plus blog posts and social media, my mind is constantly working overtime, even when I’m settled in bed ready to sleep. I struggle to find the time to put life on hold, breathe and just relax for a moment. Until, that is, Calm came into the picture. On Tuesday, I received a lovely ‘Keep Calm Package‘* from Penguin Random House (a special thank you to Kayleigh goes here!) to celebrate Michael Acton Smith’s Calm and take…
