22 Lessons in 22 Years

Lifestyle May 28, 2017 3 Comments

I just turned 22 and it definitely snuck up on me. You never realise how quickly life is moving until your birthday comes around. I’ve lost friends, gained friends, fallen in love and made mistakes, both big and small. For the first time in a long time, I am feeling optimistic about getting older and I am finally embracing all the highs and lows that come with being an adult. I usually don’t look forward to my birthday because my birthday is usually a sad reminder that I am not where I thought I would be at certain points in my life. My biggest fear in life is not achieving everything I want to achieve. However, this year I have decided to embrace my new age and acknowledge the fact that everyone else is still figuring it out.

Here are my 22 lessons in 22 Years:

Fashion Internships: How to Get Them & Turn It Into a Full Time Job

Fashion Lifestyle Stories Style May 11, 2017 0 Comments

Internships are a funny one, most internships are unpaid and interns are usually overworked. However,  they are also a great opportunity for you to ‘learn’ and also try out different roles for short periods of time. I have heard so many horror stories about internships and how people have been taken advantage of for no pay or very little pay. There are so many issues with fashion internships, but, taking on a few internships early in your career is a great way to gain experience as well as figure out what your interests are.

PROS: Great on your CV | Confidence boost and great for making contacts | Possible paid role at the end if you’re good | Great Learning experience | Little commitment – can always leave if unhappy.

CONS: Full-time job commitments & hours without the pay | Waste of time if the role is not what you expected.  read more

Recipe: Paleo Banana Bread

Food March 30, 2017 3 Comments

Since I went Paleo, the most difficult thing for me has been finding sweet treats. I have such a sweet tooth and banana bread is one of my favorite things to make & eat – Find my Vegan Paleo Bread here. I recently discovered this Paleo Banana Bread recipe by Chef Pete Evans (here) and I immediately tried it out for myself. It is delicious and tasted just like a regular banana bread but it was sugar-free & gluten-free. I added some Pecans because I love pecans and I knew they would go well with banana.

Healthy Chicken Pesto Pasta

Food October 29, 2016 2 Comments

My favourite thing to eat at Pizza Express is their Pollo Pesto Pasta, I’m obsessed with it. It has Chicken, mushrooms, red onion, mozzarella, Gran Moravia cheese and pesto sauce, absolutely delicious but it will definitely leave you with a whole lot of regret afterwards. So the other day I decided to try and make a slightly healthier version (by that, I mean using a healthier Pasta and without the cheese) at home and it tasted almost exactly the same. So here is my take on a healthy chicken pesto pasta.
