Clashing colours for a summer wedding

I wasn’t lying when I said I was going to start doing the occasional fashion post in my post about relatable blogging. I know, right? I’m kind of shocked, too. When I had such a good reaction to my body confidence post, it actually really inspired me to start trying a little harder to accept myself. And whilst I may be working on losing a few *cough* several *cough* pounds, that doesn’t mean I can’t accept that this is how… View Post

Ideal World Blogger’s Box

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Ideal World asking if I’d like to work with them. I told Joe and his first response was “OH MY GOD I USED TO GET POKÉMON CARDS THERE!” so that was encouraging.

Sigh. It’s really shit, isn’t it? OH WELL.) I am no stranger to food fads. I… View Post

I’ve joined the Fitbit crew

I’ve done it. I’ve joined the Fitbit crew. To be fair, I should say re-joined because a year or two ago I had a Fitbit Flex, but more on that later. I bought the Fitbit Alta and I’ve been using it for around 2 weeks now so I figured I’d let you know my thoughts on it. A lot of you tweeted me asking for a blog post about it when I posted my “HEY LOOK I BOUGHT A FITBIT… View Post
