Wingz (Review)

Image
Wingz is a company I came across very recently and I fell in love with the concept. They are not a bra or lingerie, but they aren’t a top or outerwear either. The product is simple. It's a piece of fabric, that has a band which goes under your bust. With a variety of sleeve lengths, you can select the perfect type for you: capped, half and full-length.

Apparently, it can seem a little bit confusing on how to put them on at first so have a little watch on this video if you're confused but I think they are a really clever and unique product but very simply and easy. You simply put on over your bra but underneath your top.

It can turn any sleeveless top or dress into a great choice for so many reasons. Many women feel uncomfortable showing the tops of their arms, whether that be because of fat, the jiggle of "bingo-wings" or the fact they have uncomfortable marks. I have a number of friends and family members who prefer not to show their upper arms, including my mother …

The Incredibles 2 (Review)

Image
The Incredibles 2 is a film many of us have been waiting for years to be released. I remember going to the cinema to see the first and loving every second. It quickly became one of my firm favourites but it wasn't until a second was announced that I re-watched it and became obsessed all over again.

It may be 14 years later for us but for the Parr family, the film picks up exactly where the last one finished. To the second. I loved it! I love that it starts exactly where the last one ended and it remains the exact same types of graphics and the same voices. Interestingly, it doesn't exactly show the story in the same way and instead it's from the perspective of Violet's love interest.
Since the first one was released, the superhero genre has now been massively over written but The Incredibles manages to keep it fresh with digital animation. I think this unique take on the craze is actually really refreshing and makes it all…

Wimbledon 2018!

Image
I love going to Wimbledon and it has become an annual tradition. A slightly stressful start to the day but a lovely day out, with beautiful weather.   Click here to watch the vlog or see below.
In all honesty, the day started out pretty stressful and it was a very hectic couple of hours. I woke up in my old bedroom which felt so strange and it didn't feel like mine, which it always had before. I got ready for the day and loved taking my lip pictures of the day in front of the wall of mirrors. Hello perfect lighting! Then I left and guess what...I got trapped in the life for almost 40 minutes! I am quite chlostrophobic but luckily, only one I feel trapped by people and I had the whole life to myself. Luckily, someone answered the call quite quickly and I ended up catching an Uber down to pick up my mum from Kings Cross Station.
Mum's trains ended up being not only the pre-announced half an hour later but a further 20 minutes later, over the train line delay and then she got lo…

Tips for Coping with Postnatal Depression

Image
As a healthcare student, I'm a big advocate for looking after yourself. Today, I'm collaborating with Aishah from "Grains & Gains", a junior doctor and personal trainer using her blog to share tips and tricks to help encourage people to lead a happier and healthier life. Together, we wanted to share some tips on dealing with something that can be very common after pregnancy, postnatal depression.

Pregnancy is a time when there is so many different emotions. Excitement, fear, worry, anxiety and happiness are just some of the feelings that a mother to be may be experiencing. During the ten months of pregnancy , a mother’s body changes to allow for the growth of a new human. Some women find this is a difficult period because suddenly your body is no longer just your own – it is now home to someone else for a long period of time.

Once the baby is born, the roller coaster of emotions does not automatically end. Many women adjust slowly to their new life with a baby. B…

Adrift (Review)

Image
Adrift shares the true story about a couple who find love shortly before sailing directly into one of the most catastrophic hurricanes in recorded history. Click here to watch the trailer or see below.  The film involves two of my favourite actors.  Shailene Woodley from the Divergent series and English, Sam Claflin from The Hunger Games and Me Before You. I thought their on screen chemistry was really sweet and cute. It wasn't powerful and hot, but it was the kind of relationship that seems more real and I felt it really kept the integrity of the film.  I thought the effects especially with the storm was really good and I liked how the film was set off. The scenes were really well designed but nothing special. I found it really interesting watching how the main character survived, especially all about the method of direction and I thought it was incredibly innovative.  As with all films that are based on true stories, the key word is based. To make films more interesting and ent…

Visiting Wales, Nephew's First Birthday and Summer Fayre!

Image
Straight from a long night shift, I got on a 4 hour train to Wales to see my dad. After a lovely meal out with the family, I went straight to bed before waking up Saturday morning and driving towards London to celebrate my nephew's first birthday. The following day we went to a Summer Fayre and then I took the train to London!  Click here to watch the vlog or see below. If you know me personally, click here for the private video.
Following straight on from last week's vlog and blog post, I headed from my third night shift in a row to Wales. My dad has recently moved there and I had yet to see his new house. To be honest, I hadn't really seen him since Christmas so I thought it would be a nice time to go down. It was a beautiful day and 4 hours later, I was sleepy after 4 trains but obsessed with the gorgeous and relatively modern barn refurbishment. His house really is stunning and spacious and it feels really homely. It was made even better by the glorious sunshine.
