where’s wally?

I recently bought a new laptop and was sorting through my old files. I came across a folder of articles I wrote five years ago and giggled a little to myself. My very own time capsule of a 22-year-old me. I thought it would be fitting to republish them in the lead up to my…

why i need to stop saying i’m ‘lucky’ at work

Last week I received a message from a colleague in a different team about a role that was on offer and if I’d like to be considered for it. I read the job description and quickly realised that if I were to create a list of the things I love to do, this job has…

can we ever get over our first love?

when was the last time you visited your grandparents?

Two weeks ago I lost my Nonno. Two years ago I lost my Abuelo. I often have moments where I forget just for a second or two that they are gone, as in my mind it doesn’t make sense. It’s a strange feeling to lose someone who has been a part of your life from…

hopeless at beauty: db cosmetics absolute feather brow pen review

A few years ago, my beautiful sister got her eyebrows micro-bladed and they are picture-perfect every time I see her. As for me, I do not like needles or any other sharp paraphernalia approaching my face and cutting my skin, which is a dilemma because I have very unruly spider-leg eyebrows. So, what should I…

The proverb, curiosity killed the cat, holds a different meaning to me than its intended purpose. In a nutshell, “Curiosity killed the cat” is a proverb used to warn of the dangers of unnecessary investigation or experimentation. For me, I always thought it was the curiosity of not knowing something that kills you. The yearning…

hopeless at beauty- bangn body firming lotion review

I’ve started the #shred for the wedding, which although is off to a very slow start, it’s a start.

the do’s and don’ts of finding a grey

Entering the latter half of your twenties comes with a whole new world of bodily changes.  For me, my metabolism has slowed. right. down. and even thinking about food goes straight to my hips and thighs. Another great discovery I recently made is grey hair. I’m not embarrassed about it as there is nothing I…

There’s an unspoken cultural rule that states French women are just naturally chic and effortlessly cool with the ‘I woke up like this’ look down to a fine science. With books, YouTube channels and fashion shoots all dedicated to one of the fashion capitals of the world, Paris just oozes style and sophistication. For as…
