Zara Wish List

Monday, November 29, 2021

I have been absolutely loving Zara recently and with my birthday around the corner (hint, hint, friends and family) I have curated a little wish list of the items I am gawking over this season. 

Leather Trousers - £29.99

These trousers I already brought them in khaki (was a bit impatient for this one) and am obsessed. I recently uploaded an IG reel with a try on of these. They hug in all the right places, except being a bit long as I’m small and curvy. 

I love them so much, I’m asking for them in black.

Straight Leg Leather trousers - £29.99

However, I found these lower rise black trousers which are more of a straight skinny fit. This is also super flattering and I love how these are a bit shorter on the leg. In the try on clips in the reel, I wore an XS but it was an absolute squeeze, so I would wear a small. 

Seamless Top - £14.99

Cannot go wrong with the Zara basics. For the price, the quality is unmatched. I have been loving the brown seamless top but I did size up to a medium to allow for a long crop. 

Halter Neck Body Suit - £14.99

The bodysuits are great and I love the neckline on these. I think they are really flattering and it’s a touch that I can go bra less with a lot of coverage and support. 

Long Coat - £199

I have been looking for a winter coat for ages now and I love this one from Zara. Although it kinda reminds me of solider coats for some reason, it looks very sophisticated on.  

City bag - £19.99

I’ve been looking for a new work bag. I feel like this encapsulates chic and sophisticated and “I have my shit together” all in one bag. 

3 body-posi activities to do - to start your body posi/neutral journey

Saturday, November 20, 2021

If you follow me on IG you’ll know I’m reading “Just Eat It”, I felt inspired by the book to create 3 activities to do that can help with body neutrality/positivity and just make you feel better about yourself which we all need from time to time. 

Have a good old wardrobe and bathroom product clear out 

  • let’s throw away all the clothes that don’t feel comfortable (i have done a whole post - here
  • let’s rediscover all our old pamper products to give our bodies a good moisturise and massage

Write a letter to yourself and body 
Write a letter for everything you are genuinely thankful your body does. It could be anything from breathing, laughing to digesting your pizza you ate for dinner. Our bodies do a lot for us, this will help change your mindset from aesthetic to appreciation. I also wrote a list of things I loved, this could be the fact you like drinking tea or you love exploring. Away from your body, this will remind you that there is more to life that how your legs look. Plus gives you abit of inspiration when your in a funk

Social media clear out 

Especially in this day and age, it’s important that we curate a social feed that’ll make you happy and feel accepted. Don’t feel bad to hiding someone’s page if it makes you feel anxious for the time being. Things may change and it may not bother you in the future so you re-follow them but it’s so important to surround yourself with positive messaging. 

Homemade Chilli Recipe

Friday, November 12, 2021

 Here is a delicious cosy staple for the cold winter months. 



1 courgette 

2 carrots 

1 large red onion 

2 cloves of garlic 

500 g lean mince beef 

1 can of chopped tomatoes 

1 can of kidney beans in chilli sauce 

1 tsp of worchester sauce 

1 tbsp of soy sauce 

1 tsp of oregano (optional) 

1 packet of El Paso chilli con carne mix 

Olive oil

Salt and pepper 


  1. Chop all your veg 
  2. Fry it all off in some olive oil and season with salt, pepper and oregano 
  3. Place in a bowl to a side and add the beef mince to the same pan. 
  4. Brown of the beef and add the worchester and soy sauce. Season the beef with salt and pepper.
  5. Add your veg back in and give this a good stir. 
  6. Add the chilli con carne mix with the appropriate amount of water (noted on the packet) 
  7. Add your cans of tomatoes and kidney beans 
  8. Let it simmer for 20 mins, stirring every so often. 
  9. Enjoy! 

This can be frozen and defrosted at a later date. A cheap, hearty dish to keep you warm and doesn’t break the bank. It’s also very versatile, any veg would work that maybe are going out of date. Head over to my Instagram to watch the video that goes along side it!

Small Biz Series: Gifts for yourself or someone else who has anxiety.

Sunday, November 7, 2021

I have been recently been struggling with my mental health at work. Just feeling abit overwhelmed and anxious at times which is always normal when your job role changes or you start a new job. I thought it would be helpful to run through a few pieces of stationery from some small businesses which I think would help get my head a little clearer.

The Shit List - Sighh 

I thought this idea on a notepad. It’s kinda like an idea I was taught in CBT, where you write out everything that’s troubling you in an overwhelming period and then on the other side, you breathe and find a way to solve the issue in order to let go. 

Power Hour Note Pad - Sighh

I also loved the idea of this notepad. Especially for those days where you sit on the sofa all day, thinking about everything you need to do but don’t end up doing them… or maybe helpful for productivity at work. 

The “Be Kind To Yourself” Pin - Juniper Moon

I love the idea of constantly reminding yourself to be kind to you. Having a cute pin on your bag or a makeup bag, may be a daily reminder to not beat yourself as life’s too short to be mean to yourself and we all deserve better. 

“Worry Angel” Bracelet - Letterbox Love 

I feel like this would a perfect gift to a friend or yourself for those who have gone through a troubling time. Just as a reminder that no matter what your mind to saying, everything is okay.
