Come Shopping With Me | The Trafford Centre

If you follow me on Instagram stories, you may have noticed my recent little trip to the intu Trafford Centre. A common misconception for visitors to Manchester that it's in the city but in fact I see it as a separate trip completely. You can easily spend a full day here and if shopping isn't your thing, there's an extensive list of places to dine to suit everyone, along with a cinema, sea life and Legoland centre, mini golf and much more. A short drive over the road and you even have an indoor skydive and ski slope centre! So plenty on offer for all members of the family, but I personally like to stick to the shops. With a new addition to the centre, Argento is a jewellery store filled with many 'blogger favourite' brands. Selfridges have also completed phase one of there Beauty Hall transformation so I took a sneak peek and even treated myself to an appointment at Tom Ford. With keeping up to date and always adding new exciting brands, intu Trafford Centre is paid with regular visits from myself, not to mention I used to work at the Hollister there! It's also reminiscent of when we lived in America when my mum and I used to love trips out to the American shopping malls, they even have my favourite fast food chain Five Guys!

Where Are The Most Life-Affirming Places To Travel?

Where are the most life-affirming places to travel? This is a worthwhile question, because we are only allowed a certain amount of vacations in our lifetime. This is true even if we can take a new one every week. Quality must outdo quantity, and of course this will depend on what form of experience you cherish the most. However, there are some universally wonderful things you can experience if you would only take the chance to appreciate and take the risk of enjoying them.

These following suggestions might be much different to how you usually appreciate or expect a vacation to be, but the effort of trying to head to these foreign shores could gift you something you might not have known you needed.

My Skincare Routine

My obsession with skincare only really started within the last couple of years. After constantly hearing that anti-age products should start being used from 25, I feel like now, I've really starting investing more time and money into good products and a regular skincare routine.

Being Your Own Boss


One of my ultimate goals in live has always been to be my own boss. Having suffered with anxiety since a young age (officially diagnosed at 14) my most happy and comfortable place is generally when I am at home and relaxed. Events, jobs, travel are just a few amongst many other things that can bring on my anxiety. Even something seen to anyone else as insignificant as going to the shops for instance, has brought on stress. I could do a whole story time video on my Youtube Channel all about how I have had to deal with stress, depression and anxiety but that's not really today's focus. Today I'm taking about working for yourself and being your own boss. The idea of being my own boss for me personally is the most healthiest and happiest I feel with less pressure from others and in particular not letting others down. Therefore not only being my own boss but also pursuing my career as a full-time blogger and Youtuber, has given me the flexibility of doing something I love and right now, my motivation to work is at an all-time high. With a few things lined up and lots of creative ideas running around in my head, I felt inspired today to write a little post all about being my own boss and how this can be achieved by you too if that's what you're after.

Dining at Pier Eight and the Sleeping Beauty Ballet at The Lowry

Myself and Tom were very kindly invited down to watch the Ballet performance of Sleeping Beauty at The Lowry this week. It was a first for the both of us and we thoroughly enjoyed it! You can stay tuned for more footage on my weekly vlog next Sunday however in the meantime, I wanted to share with you another new discovery of ours. We were also invited to dine the new Pre-Theatre set menu in the adjacent restaurant called Pier Eight. I have to say we were both very pleasantly surprised! We weren't expecting the standard of food we received at the price point set. Having worked in the industry ourselves, we recognise great cooking abilities and if you're after great value for money, I couldn't recommend the Pier Eight restaurant enough.

Mother's Day Gift Ideas 2018

It's that time again whereby we take just one day out of the year to tell our Mother's we love them....WRONG! Every day we should make them feel loved and appreciated and thank them for everything they have provided and given us to make us the individuals we are today. And to all those who sadly don't have a mother in their lives, Mother's Day is an opportunity for reflection and sentimental contemplation. This year, I have been shopping online and spending hours on Pinterest for gift ideas to give your Mother this year, but above all the greatest gift I think you can give, is time. Whether it be one on one, an experience day or even set a date to meet sometime soon, gifting your mother with your time spent with her how she likes, is the greatest gift in my opinion. Nevertheless, if you're after some gift inspiration, here are some of my favourite gift ideas I've come across to spoil your mother rotten!
