    What’s Made Me Happy This Month

    As I write this, I am sitting in a hostel in Iceland and honestly, it still feels like a dream. I don’t think it has hit me yet that I’m on holiday, so I’ll give it a few more days. Regardless, I was meant to have this post up yesterday but as that was the day we were flying out, things also went flying out the window. Have you ever been in place where you think, nothing gets much better than this? Like when you’re eating some really good pancakes or reading a book that you can’t seem to put down? I always find that it’s the little things that…

    In The Spotlight: Yasmin Natasha

    I had the pleasure of working alongside Yasmin whilst interning at Mutual Media, two years ago. She’s honestly one of the nicest person you’ll ever meet, and I’m so glad her career is taking off. I thought it would be nice to do a little interview with her, so everyone else can get to know the woman behind the saxophone 🙂 Who are your musical inspirations? My musical inspirations totally vary, but for sax: Maceo Parker (Soul Power 74′), John ‘Fathead’ Newman (Ray Charles) – I love the upbeat jazz rants that they go on with the sax! For songwriting: Jimmy Cliff, Buddy Holly, Four Seasons, Ken Boothe, Hopeton Lewis,…

    The Month of Turn UP

    I’m not really sure how it happened, but I’ve somehow managed to get most of August booked up doing absolutely everything. It started with a Mexican Food Fiesta cooked by yours truly, in which I tried my hand at making watermelon agua fresca using this recipe. Not trying to boast, but it was delicious. Next thing I knew I was filling up all available spots with things to do. To be fair, it IS my birthday month, so you can excuse me for wanting to turn up every single day. Although 22 isn’t exactly a big milestone, it is still a pivotal moment in our lives (I’m quoting Mutay, here, btw). Mutay…

    A Gym Playlist Is a Must Have

    The wheels have been set in motion for my holiday in June. I’ll be flying to Barcelona for 3 days from the 21st, and to say I’m excited is an understatement. Excitement aside, I’ve realised that I actually want to wear a bikini on this holiday because, a) It’s gonna be hot, AF and b) there’s a rooftop pool at our hostel. That being said, I’ve realised that perhaps the takeaways and overeating has taken it’s toll because I am nowhere near a flat stomach. I’m not fat, but I could do with a little toning here and there. Also, just being fit in general is always good. I actually…

    Bump ‘n’ Grind

    So, my best friend is on a first date with someone she met on OkCupid. It’s still ‘Blog Everyday In February’, so I’m sticking to it. I’ve been chilling with a ‘friend’ and the bartenders because being a third wheels sucks. I’m still having fun, though! We decided to play dirty/romantic songs for them including Hot in Herre, Ignition, Bump ‘n’ Grind and I’m Horny. If you don’t see a post tomorrow, you know I’m dead. My ‘friend’ said he’s my wingman. I’m putting quotation marks because we’ve known each other since primary school but he used to bully me. He’s still annoying. Haha. He’s trying to make me get…

    November Loving – Happy December!

    November has finished, already?! Hello, friends! I can’t believe it’s December already… Last month flew by so fast, but I’ll admit it has been an awesome month. The Coca-Cola adverts have started showing in the UK, so that means it’s officially Christmas! Has anyone started their Christmas shopping yet? Anyways, to mark the end of November/start of December I thought I’d let you guys know things I’ve been loving in November! Shoes It gets really cold in the winter, so I treated myself to some new boots from Daisy Street. I used to wear my mum’s boots but she gets pissed out when I wear her stuff, haha. I love…

    Let’s Talk About… Blurred Lines

    I don’t often engage in social commentary on my blog and I feel like I should do this more. I always love having an open discussion and see how other people react – makes life just a little bit more interesting. How many of you have heard the song Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke feat. T.I. & Pharrell? No? View the video above and let me know your thoughts on the song. Let me know what was the first thing that came to into your head when you viewed it. Today, at work, I was reading this article on the Guardian. It basically spoke about how a whole of people are in…
