Wimbledon’s Cancelled

Wimbledon’s Cancelled: Unluckiest Week Ever!

Tickets to Men’s Semi Finals on Centre Court? Sounds too good to be true? A sequence of unfortunate events came out of nowhere… I think we know where this is going! I had my outfit sorted out months in advance. Way before I even got tickets. I just had to go. I love Wimbledon, and […]

Day of Tennis | Queen’s Club: Day 4

Front row tickets? Yes. Heavy thunderstorms and lightning predicted on weather forecasts? Also yes. Come on this crazy journey with me! I mean, who can call themselves a tennis fan if they haven’t been to Queen’s? Especially as it’s right on your doorstep… not literally as it’s a couple hours away from my home but […]

Eurovision – Switzerland

Who Will Win Eurovision 2021?

Saturday night only means one thing. Eurovision! I’m gonna keep this short and sweet… for once. I obviously want United Kingdom to win but I’m 99.9% sure I’m setting myself up for failure. Let’s just say I wouldn’t bet on it! Italy, France, Malta and Switzerland have all been favourites in the past few weeks […]

The Unluckiest Week of My Life & Eurovision!

You know how lockdown’s been all about saving money? You can see where this is going… I have one word for you. Eurovision. And no I’m not attending… just yet. If you don’t know what Eurovision is (I don’t think most have if you don’t live in Europe), it’s an international song contest which features […]

I’m on a rotating schedule

Mentally Preparing for Lockdown Easing

In the UK, we’re still technically in lockdown. We can’t go into peoples houses, not supposed to travel unless for essential reasons, but we’re allowed a pint in the pub (outside seating of course). Make sense? It’s been a peculiar world for over a year, but especially in the UK, we’ve practically been in lockdown […]

Photobiology: The Results!

I didn’t spend 4 days in Manchester for nothing! Or did I? Let me take you back to how I was feeling the night before… Anxious. Nervous. Expecting the worst, meaning their will be no results. You may be thinking, isn’t that a good thing? I haven’t spent 4 days in Manchester (2 hours away […]

Upcoming Week of Appointments: Photobiology

The excitement is killing me… I hope you can sense sarcasm. In reality, who likes appointments? Especially ones that drag on for a week! If you don’t know, photobiology testing is basically photosensitivity testing. They test you for sun allergies and sun related conditions. You might be thinking, how are people allergic to the sun?

4 Mistakes That Are Ruining Your Natural Makeup Look!

Lightweight, minimal, glowy makeup without the cakiness? Yes, I’ve got you! I think it’s safe to say everyone, “natural, glowing makeup” is everyone’s go-to right now. It looks easy, but can be a mission to recreate. 2021 is all about glowing skin, feathered brows and a rosy blush. But we all know, we can get […]

Black board with text – Happy Easter. Colorful Easter Eggs and flowers

Happy Easter!

It’s the holidays! A chance to share much bountiful brunch recipes, Easter Bible verses and the chance to come together with your beloved family members and/or friends that you might not have seen since Christmas, or even longer! One quote stands out to me, “It’s the thought that counts”. Especially with the holidays upon us, […]

My Heatwave Survival Hacks

The heatwave has hit the UK, in March! Save me now! We haven’t even prepared for this… Only last month it was Winter, and if my calculations are correct the first official day of Spring in the UK began on 20th March 2021. The UK recorded its warmest March day in 53 years on Tuesday […]

The thought of fighting someone for a staycation booking

Post-Lockdown Holidays: Smart or Naive?

‘Sun, sea and mojitos’ sounds like a glimpse into heaven. But is it too early to be booking your next vacation? Once lockdown lifts, people are gonna be moving erratically. Just think of shopping malls on Christmas eve, but leaving all the gifts and grocery shopping until 30 minutes before closing time. Yeah, that kinda […]

My Birthday in Lockdown!

In the words of Taylor Swift, “I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22!”. The day has come. I never thought I’d be spending a birthday in lockdown, and was eagerly hoping that restrictions would be lifted just in time (not to have a party) but to at least see another face instead of […]

COVID-19 Vaccination: Miracle or Sceptical?

Apart from Coronavirus, vaccinations are next thing on everyone’s minds. But will you even get it? One year ago, our lives remained untouched. We could go, see and do what we wanted, when we wanted. Freedom, in its entirety. We couldn’t begin to imagine, how our world’s would be turned upside down, and the way […]

The Girl on the Train

Pre-pandemic of course! Maskless and 2 metre who? What a time to remember! The freedom of hopping on a train without a care in the world seems like a delusional thought in 2021!

The Queen’s Gambit – Review!

Chess. Or is there more to this drama? Guess what? I thought this was just gonna be another quarantine show to binge watch. A show to think nothing more or less about. Nonchalant at its very best. An overly hyped show. But was I wrong? HELL YES! I mean, there’s a reason why it’s Netflix’s […]

Let’s Quarantine Together… Then What?!

The dilemma this generation is going through. But is it rational? The pandemic has been the cause for many relationships falling apart. Whether that’s because it’s highlighted pre-existing issues, or whether you looked at your other half one day and thought, “Lord almighty, what was I thinking?!”. Throw co-habiting into the mix, can spell disaster! […]
