Who is an Engineer and Why Aren’t There More Girls in STEM?

Just me and some cool engineered thing I found the other day.  I joke.  Just needed a pretty picture so here’s a totally irrelevant one.  Rome spam will be coming your way soon. If you’ve been kicking around here for a while, you might remember that back in 2015 I was a Vlogger and Ambassador for Tomorrow’s Engineers Week with Engineering UK.  Just typing that sentence makes me feel like I’m about to slip into my little explanation speech that…

Bigging Up the Hometown | New Food and Fun in Preston

Howdy.  So much as I like to share exotic places far and wide on this blog (and defo would if I could erm, go to new places every week) I’d like to keep it a bit more real and share cool new things closer to home too.  Much closer to home, so in Preston to be specific.  This delightful little city in Lancashire.  Interpret that with whatever sarcasm you wish.  Mine depends on the day.  Fellow Prestonians (feel like I’m…

A Different Way To #PackMoreIn

I hardly need any excuse to head to My Favourite Place Ever for a day, but a challenge to pack as much into a day as possible would be a pretty good excuse if I did.  This country bumpkin loves a good roadtrip day out.  Original Source challenged me to #PackMoreIn to a day just like they pack more in to each bottle – a challenge I was willing to accept!  In the past I’ve crammed all sorts into a…

31 Lifestyle Blog Post Ideas For When You Need a Little Inspiration

Just a short and snappy one from me tonight!  Much as I like reading and writing long rambly blog posts I thought I’d share something (hopefully) more useful today.  A blog post about blog posts, woo!  These are based on lifestyle ideas I’ve written/have in my drafts – we’ve all seen the same ideas come up time and time again on Pinterest lists, so hopefully these provide some different prompts.  Sometimes just a little prompt is all it takes to…

Why I’ll Never Be The Cool Girl | 19 Going On 90

Just thought I’d change up my style a bit y’know.  I joke (sitting here wearing a jumper dress and tights like 6/7 days lately).  It’s fun to let other people style you and play dressup with a different look sometimes though!  These shots are from a test shoot with Joseph Clarkson back in January and I really like how different they look!  Can’t say I’ll be rocking pinstripe pants and green eyeshadow every day from here on out but you…

A Girly Spa Night with Boohoo x Village | #WeAreSS17

Any excuse to crack out the first bikini of the season and I’ll take it!  I am seriously craving some actual sun and warmth on my back right now I tell ya.  Grey skies are getting hella boring.  Sadly a pre-Spring trip to the Bahamas hasn’t presented itself yet, but Boohoo invited me along to their #WeAreSS17 launch with Village Spa which satisfied my bikini craving.  Still wouldn’t turn down a Bahamas trip though, if you’re offering!  After what turned into…

A Light-hearted, Post Valentine’s Day, What Not To Do For Guys

So.  There were many love-y posts and cynical posts in the lead up to Valentine’s day, but probably not many in the wake of good ol’ V-day.  We’re going with a tongue in cheek, hefty pinch of salt approach to a ‘what not to do’ for guys today.  I’ve been single for a while now so why not! — Don’t make the mistake of playing it cool to avoid scaring someone off.  If they’ve really enjoyed the first date then…
