BLOGGING IS DYING AND WE ARE HOLDING THE KNIVES

Walking in with the piping hot tea.

Let’s get the truth out the way so we can get back to content creating.

It was about this time last year I went to my first proper PRed blogging event. The Launch of Make Up Revolution in Superdrug L1. My now good mate Josie Peaches helped me get the gig the day I met her. Like, five minutes into knowing her. I was blown away by how someone could do that for me and thought this community was going to be as kind and supportive as she was to me. I soon found this not to be the case and I’m here to tell you what’s good.

LA REBELLE WITH A CAUSE: HOW THE FASHION WEEK TREND OF REBELLION HAS ALWAYS BEEN A STAPLE IN THE WARDROBE OF A SCOUSE BIRD

The common theme of ‘rebellion’ was apparent across many shows at Paris Fashion Week. Whether this was through up and coming fashion houses like ‘Jacquemus’ setting the standard of what they can get away with, or other designers such as Maria Grazia (creative head of Christian Dior) reflecting on themes of past historic rebellions for inspiration. But Liverpool women have been doing this for years. Except, our fashion week only lasts three days, and it is held at the same venue every year: Aintree racecourse. The rebellion I’m talking about isn’t too much alcohol or the arguments caught on camera, etched into tabloids across the country.

THE ROYAL TREATMENT: URBAN CALM REVIEW

If I belonged to any monarchy, my title by birthright would be Queen of awkwardness. When I say I’m awkward, I don’t mean a bit socially introverted and shy. I mean keeping my shoes and socks on during a massage awkward. SO you can probably imagine my reluctance to make beauty and spa treatments, as much as I enjoy fresh skin and manicured nails. If only a spa existed that made me as comfortable as when I’m watching Drag Race sans pants avec takeaway.

WORKOUT FOR LAZY GIRLS

You promised this year it would be different. New Year Day came and you were hungover, then that Australian flu came and you, of course, caught it. You told yourself you’d wait till next week to really get into it, like maybe when you go back to work or school/uni. Now it’s fucking February and you’ve actually gained weight instead of losing it. Sound familiar? Well, fear no more. Here is my work out advice for girls (and guys) who are as lazy as I am.

NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS AND THE BUZZ PHRASE ‘TOXIC PEOPLE’

It’s such a trend right now to cut every one negative off and leave them in 2017, but when no one is left to cut off, what are you gonna do? Should you cut yourself off for complaining about Monday mornings? Here is my guide on how to incorporate the phrase CORRECTLY into your resolutions this 2018.

Happy Birthday, Margaux!

MATERIAL INVESTMENTS; WHAT TO BUY AT WHAT PRICE

Doing things on the cheap is a field I have expertise in. I’m the Joanne the Scammer of the blogger world complete with my fur coat. Sometimes, however, you can’t always fake it. Here is a list I’ve compiled of things you should be willing to spend a bit more on, and things you can go cheap on in there for good measure.

You might hear the phrase ‘can’t wait to see the back of this year’ every damn year and be sick to the back teeth of it like at midnight we get ‘2017’ in a box and throw it in the Mersey like it’s a concrete object? Things have been out of my control this year but has this stopped me making the most of what I can control? NO. Here are my four resolutions that I achieved this year.
