Travel beauty pitfalls not to fall into

Don’t be ripped off First things first…most of those mini drugstore products are a total waste of money, especially the deodorants and shower gels.

Three golden rules to become a wardrobe minimalist

For years and years and yeeeaars I would try to clean out my wardrobe every 6-8 months or so and get rid of a very small bag of clothes and within a few weeks it would be totally full and unmanageable again and I would lose things in it constantly. Since starting my minimalist journey I…

5 Podcasts to listen to if you love Criminal

Podcasts are the best, I listen to then everyday when I wake up for work as my brain is too frazzled for music, they are also my favourite thing to have on a plane, train or bus when travelling and for some weird reason my little brain is obsessed with crime and murders. Not because I…

How to start an Etsy shop for almost no money

Last month I wrote a post about How to strive for financial freedom in your 20’s and talked about needing a side hustle. As I’m still a struggling intern with barely any money to spare I set up my little shop on a shoestring with minimal effort and I wanted to share the process with you. Recently I’ve…

How to Strive for Financial Freedom in Your 20’s

Ok so I totally get it, you’re probably thinking ‘what the f**k is this chick on about?’ and I know it seems ridiculous to be considering Financial Freedom in my early 20’s but it’s definitely something that future me will thank 22 year old me for and I figure it’s good to get a head start. Full…
