Blogging: Those Pinch Yourself Moments

Harvey Nichols Winter Gift Guide

Recently I have had quite of a of those pinch-yourself-this-is-real blogging moments. Most of the time I’m quite hard on myself, berating myself for not working hard enough or making too many spelling errors. It can be hard to celebrate your achievements when you are doing your own thing and I never want to be one of those egotistical bloggers who truly believe their online fame has made them real-world famous. That said, once in a while, it is nice to celebrate your achievements.

Harvey Nichols Winter Gift Guide

This month I was asked to pick out some of my favourite Winter and Luxury beauty products and give quotes about them for Harvey Nichols. I can remember visiting the Harvey Nichols store as a teenager and wanting everything (some things never change!) I love their stores and I have so much respect for their marketing campaigns, buyers and of course, the visual merchandising team (please tell me you have seen their christmas windows!) It feels kind of amazing that they have been following my blog and selected me as an influencer to help them out with the project. Click here to see the guide.

Instagram Milestone

Just last night I hit 30,000 followers on instagram! I joined instagram a couple of years ago and I LOVE posting pictures of my travels, food, blogging projects and snippets of my life on there. It’s kind of nuts to think 30,000 people follow my daily snaps! Find my instagram here, come and say *hi*!


Last weekend I was whisked off to Paris with Crabtree & Evelyn, treated to a day of sight-seeing and dining on delicious food. I have some other amazing adventures planned for 2016 and every single day, my eyes seem to pop at all the new and exciting brands reaching out to work with me. Sometimes you just have to sit back and think, wow! I have worked hard and I think I have started to achieve kind of amazing things!

Did I go kind of American Thanksgiving Dinner on you guys there?! Anyway, I’m thankful, thanks to everyone who follows me on my blog and social media, you guys are awesome!
