Pacifica is a brand that has been making their way onto my blog quite a few times in the past year. So when I found the Pacifica Indian Coconut Nectar gift set under my tree this Christmas I was certainly a happy girl.

There comes a time in every 20-something life when they realise they have become their parents.

For me this moment came when I decided to write this blog post raving about a product which is not lipstick or a new skirt, but laundry detergent.

On the topic of women's health, periods can get heavy and can get in the way of many things (and is still not taken seriously as a health issue).

Here's a pre-made blog planner on Amazon.

A great ASMR YouTuber I found this week is Heather Feather.

I don't share much writing from my work blog however I thought this recent one on consumers having more influence than the government in making utility companies behave themselves was worth a share. 

We've all read the self-development guides that travel makes you more well-rounded, but does it really?

Remember I said on new years day that one of my goals was too chill out this year? I like to think this post is a reflection that I am doing just that. Twenty-one days into 2015 I am writing about my very final restaurant experience of 2014 (and I still have another Edinburgh restaurant to blog about from the year that was) and not getting all Type-A on myself by insisting that it needs to be up within a week because then my blog wouldn't be organised and punctual. Justttt chilling.
