My Year in Pictures

I can't believe that today is the last day of 2015, seriously where has the year gone? This year has been filled with lots of living, lots of loving and most importantly lots of laughter too and so, as is becoming tradition, here is my year in my favourite 12 Instagrams...

My Fitness Diary - December 2015 Edition

Whoever said that December wasn't made for being healthy has obviously not met me! I fully expected this to be the hardest month and to be honest it was but in some ways it was also the best month I've had and the most motivating...

My Threads, Treads & Treats - December 2015 Edition

Christmas has been everywhere we have been and looked for the past month or so now, I'm fairly certain it never used to last as long when I was little. Anyway I digress, this month has been filled with lots of fun and festivities so here is a rather seasonal Threads, Treads & Treats for December...

My Favourites - December 2015 Edition

And so here it is, the last favourites post of 2015 and what a wonderful year of discoveries it has been! I'm thinking of mixing this segment up next year so this will possibly be the last time you see 'My Favourites' in this format...

The Present Haul

'Tis the season to be jolly and after the last few days I am certainly that! I fully appreciate that there is more to Christmas than the gifts that we receive, however, as I sit here full up on Turkey & Prosecco I thought I would take a few minutes to talk you through 'The Present Haul'...

Dear Santa

This year has been truly amazing, from a week in Sorrento for the most magical wedding to meeting a close friends baby for the first time, I've certainly made some fond memories. When I was little I would always leave a Christmas card out for Santa along with a drink and a snack, here's what I'd be saying this year if I still did...

Love Your Leftovers

Recently I've been thinking a lot more about the amount of food we waste as a household. Although there are just two of us, we tend to have quite different tastes in food which can often lead to food going to waste and after watching 'Hugh's War on Waste' and 'Eat Well for Less' recently I've really started to try and clamp down on the amount of food finding it's way to landfill...

Christmas in Leeds

When it comes to traditions at Christmas, I don't have many (unless you count always posting my cards on the last day and madly wrapping presents at midnight Christmas Eve), but I do always make time for a girly afternoon in Leeds in the week before Christmas and I do love going home...

Mocktails & Cocktails

Tis the season to be jolly and over the next few weeks we will spend time socialising with friends and family, feasting on roast dinners and canapes and enjoying ice cold drinks by roaring fires as (hopefully) the snow starts to fall. But drinking doesn't always mean you have to have alcohol as these little mocktails demonstrate...

The Christmas Tag

It's the last Saturday in December, which means it is time for the last of my Blogmas videos, sob. Tonight is a Christmas Tag video, the idea was to do 10 questions in 1o minutes, but I waffle, a lot!

Christmas Jumper Day 2015

It’s easy to forget the true sentiment of Christmas with all of the hype, glitz and glamour of the high street. Christmas is a great time for reflection and a great time to take stock of everything that we have and everything that we have achieved over the past 12 months, but it is also a great time to give something back to those that have helped us throughout the year and also to those we don’t know.

Birchbox: The Birchbag Edition

For those of you out there that are regular visitors to this site, you may remember that I was rather unimpressed when November's box landed on my doorstep and I never really intended for these 'un-boxing' posts to become a regular feature, however, this months was a stroke of genius...

Staying Fit & Fab at Home

Holidays are coming and ready or not so is the food, the stress and all the fun. I am such a festive girl, I love the music, the traditions and the fact that it brings everyone together. But Christmas can be hard on your regime, especially if you're away from home, so here are a few tips to stay 'Fit & Fab' this Christmas time...

Luscious Winter Lips

There are two times of the year where I seemingly embrace lip products more than others; deepest darkest winter and the warm midsummer months. Here are my 'fantastic five' lip colours for this Winter...

Gift Guide Vol. 3 - Gifts for Him

The one person I always struggle to buy for, is the person I spend the majority of time with. The men in our lives always seem to be the hardest to buy for and I am pretty sure that they would say the same about us if asked. Today is all about the fellas, with a festive gift guide designed just for them...

Winter Skin Made Simple

As much as I love those cold and crisp mornings, I hate what they do to my skin. Winter brings with it those biting winds that batter our skin on our daily commutes, we then crank up the central heating as soon as we get in and before you know it our skin is dull, dry and sore...

Winter Makeup Haul

It's Saturday, so over Christmas at least that means it is time for a new video and this week it is time to cover off my Winter Makeup Haul featuring a little Kat Von D, Charlotte T and Maybelline...

Gift Guide Vol. 2 - Secret Santa

It's the present that we all probably dread buying, the Secret Santa gift! I've been on the receiving end of some pretty awful ones (baubles) and some pretty damn awesome ones (like the Next frame I got last year, thanks Becky!), but what's out there this year?

Gift Guide Vol. 1 - Gifts for Her

I’m sure one of the few things that we all dread most about Christmas is finding suitable presents for our nearest and dearest. In part one of my Christmas gift guides I take a look at what is out there for the ladies.

Feeling Festive

Things are about to get all sparkly and festive here at Harmony Blaze HQ which got me thinking about all of those little things that get me feeling all festive at this time of year. So turn up Mariah and crack out the tinsel it's time to start feeling festive...

Avoiding the Bulge

It can be all too easy to put on a few extra pounds in the Winter, especially around Christmas time. Our offices are filled with chocolates and biscuits, our homes with fruitcakes and gingerbread and our plates with lovely starchy carbs. But if like me you'd rather not 'fluff' up this festive season here are a few tips for you...

Let's Get Lifting

There’s more to the gym than just the treadmill and tummy trimming, something that I never really realised until a few months ago. Since then I have stopped trying to cram as much cardio as I can into each day and started to pay more attention to lifting...

My Christmas Party Makeup

If you're anything like me, on the night of the office Christmas Party you will have little time to transform yourself into a dancefloor diva and will need to turn to some of the most reliable products on the market to make sure you hit the mark.

What's In My Handbag

We're all guilty of it, throwing everything bar the kitchen sink into our handbags, and I am no different. So today's post is (not very festive) look at what exactly I have stashed in my handbag.

The Christmas Party Edit

This weekend sees the start of one of the Christmas Party season and I'm fairly sure that at some point over the next few weeks we will all be pulling on our gladrags and sparkle as we celebrate the year's successes with our family, friends and loved ones.

The Hennessy Gold Cup 2015

A few weeks ago I was very lucky to be invited to attend the last day of the Bet365 Festival at Newbury races after entering a competition online and I have to say I absolutely jumped at the opportunity to go as it was something that would be completely new to me...
