10 Amazing (& Easy!) Pancake Recipes

Good morning beauties! Firstly, apologies for the lack of updates recently. Life has been pretty hectic with wedding planning and all (it's SO near) and needless to say it has left me feeling a little overwhelmed. I miss updating this space of mine more regularly but life happens. I will try to bring new content every once in a while but until the wedding, it probably won't be as regular as before which is ok with me given despite the stress, I am having so much fun with planning our big day and I can't wait to share every detail with you guys! Until then, follow me on Instagram where I post daily so you're in the know of what's happening lately!

Now, onto today's post, I'm recycling a post I wrote two years ago which is still very much relevant today given it's Pancake Day! I bring you the ultimate list of pancake recipes you will need for today. These are bound to be crowd-pleasers, and if you want something healthier, more chocolaty or even savoury pancakes, I've got you covered! Check these out:

S/S 2017 Trends: Ruffles & Fuchsia

Last spring we saw a rise of Ruffles and frills on the catwalk as well as on the high street and I spoke about the trend previously here. This spring it is back and gutsiest than ever which is great news for ruffles lover me. For instance, Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen showcased ruffles in black leather embroidered and printed with Scottish roses, which sound just as stunning as they were. Erdem, Preen, Jacquemus and 3.1 Phillip Lim were also among the number of designers keen on the style, each bringing a different take on it. But one thing they all had in common was that there is something about ruffles that seemed perfectly Victorian. I love the exaggerated leaves in garments, the ruffled high neck, ruffles along the collar bone...which is why when I saw this gorgeous denim shirt with excessive ruffling detailing and this throat-constricting neckline, I knew it had to mine. As soon as I spotted this shirt I knew I was onto something. Not only have I worn this a couple of times already (I only got it last week!) but I strongly believe this will be my go-to shirt in the upcoming sunny season! Let's see how I paired it!

3 Mistakes You Are Probably Making When Applying Mascara

Apart from looking like a mad woman with my eyes (and mouth) wide open when applying it, I am guilty of a few common mistakes we probably all make when it comes to applying the one product we love the most, mascara! You will agree with me that mascara pulls everything together. It can hide dodgy eyeliner (I’m certainly guilty of those), it can make you look more awake, it can give the look a more dramatic finish and we honestly can't get enough of it! With the hundreds of mascaras I've got sitting on my vanity table, I am guilty of making these mistakes with every single one of them. When I recently learned about these mistakes I decided to bring them to the blog and help out a fellow blogger/reader. So here goes, 3 mistakes you are probably making when applying mascara.

How I Keep My Hair Long & Healthy

My hair has to be one of my most complimented features (my skin is a close second and y'all must be blind to be saying it is flawless haha) on Instagram and blog photos. Which is why, I decided to dedicate an entire post to it and in it give a few tips on how I keep it clean, healthy and protected. Back in 2015, I wrote about my favourite haircare products at the time and whilst the principles still stand, I am doing a few things differently and I believe these changes to have made a massive difference. Today I am much more focused on my internal well-being rather than on the products and something I learned recently is that whilst using the wrong products can result in hair damage and loss, the trick to truly healthy hair has more to do with what goes into your body than styling products and hours spent in front of a mirror. Hair loss, dullness, and slow growth often comes from the absence of nutrients in your body or bad habits. After a bit of research on my end, here are some tips I found if you're looking to keep your hair long and healthy like I am.

The New Denim Shape To Try: Flared Jeans

If you would have told me this would ever happen I would have called you mad, and that just proves how bad I am at predicting fashion trends. But it's true, the time has come for you to put away skintight jeans and embrace this season's denim's new shape; the flared jeans! And before you roll your eyes at me, let me tell you why this is a good thing. The flared look, whilst at first will push you out of your comfort zone, trust me when I say they are incredibly flattering and will compliment your existing wardrobe so no need for new additions! Sounded good enough for me to give them a try, so I did!

Don't Break Your New Year's Resolution: Keeping Fit The Right Way

"I am going to be fit this year."
"I am going to eat clean and workout."
"I am going to lose weight and get back in shape." 

Who hasn't put this one resolution on their list for 2017? Year after year, the top two New Year's resolutions made are to 1. to get fit, and 2. to lose weight. If either of those is on your to-do list, good for you! Keeping fit is vital and you should not be putting it off until next month or heck, next year. If however, your motivation levels have already drastically dropped you're probably doing this whole fit life wrong. The scramble to lose weight and get fit in the beginning of the year is always a given, and the gym industry reaps all the benefits. But did you know that 4% of new gym goers don't even make it past the end of January and 14% drop out in February? Do you wanna be part of this percentage? I didn't think so! I've been there before myself and yes you save gym money which you can spend on clothes and food, but in the long-run, you know you would have been better off working out with no drop outs. With this in mind, today I bring you 5 tips which massively help me staying focused and motivated!
