Life's A Beach

Location: Formby Beach, Liverpool, Merseyside

When the end of summer finally arrives, I always like to try and do one last summery activity before the freezing autumn weather arrives. I'm not overly upset about summer drawing to a close as Autumn is my favourite season, plus spending the first quarter of the year in West Africa means I'm more than ready for fluffy faux-fur coats and PSL goodness. However, it was great to get the chance to feel the soft sand in between my toes and enjoy the last of the blazing sunshine. Formby beach is one of my favourite places in the North West, and somewhere well worth visiting whatever the weather if you find yourself looking for a little adventure up north.

Ghana | Friends In Bolgatanga

Location: Bolgatanga, Upper Eastern region of Ghana, West Africa

My last photo diary of my time living in Ghana shared with you some of the typical sights I saw on my way to and from work or hanging out on the weekends. I also shared some pictures of some of the lovely people I met in my community. For this post, I wanted to show you guys my fellow volunteers who I worked with on the twelve-week placement, and some of the friends I made during my time living in Bolgatanga. I hope you enjoy these pictures and they give you a sense of how warm and lovely everyone was to me when I was living in Bolga, and as always let me know your thoughts in the comment section below.

Signs You're In A Basic Relationship

Up until two years ago, I was a single-and-proud kind of girl, officially 'done' with men. At twenty-one, I'd dated, Tindered and even had a crack at a couple of relationships, and all it had got me was a bitter acceptance that in ten years time I was destined to be a real life Bridget Jones. Then, one day, a dreaded thought entered my mind: "What's wrong with me?" contemplating everything I thought I knew about myself. Am I ugly? Clingy? A total hot mess? After investing in a tonne of make-up and adding Tinder on my phone in the hope of finding Prince Charming, all I'd wound up with was a hole in my bank account and a graveyard of frog's phone numbers. I knew at that point it was me that was the problem, but not in the way I'd thought.

Autumn In Manchester

September always feels like a brand new chapter. Maybe it's because I've always associated it with a new school year or perhaps it's just because I enjoy watching summer slowly fade into Autumn, but there's something a little bit fresh and magic about this month. Here in Manchester, the city is always full of loads to do and see no matter what stage of the year it is, so if you're trying to get over your summer blues, or just don't fancy retreating to your sofa with a duvet just yet, read on to see my little list of things to do right now.

#DareToMask | The Body Shop Superfood Masks

Location: The Body Shop, Trafford Centre, Manchester

Happy September! Literally, everyone is super excited that we're on the brink of Autumn, and as pumpkin season approaches us fast, for many of us it may be time to rethink our skincare routine. Last Wednesday I headed down to The Body Shop, located in Manchester's Trafford Centre, for a night of fizz and pampering and a chance to try out their new superfood face mask range. With the hot sunny weather beginning to fade away, it was time to put my skin through some much-needed TLC.
