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…

A High Street Shopping Experiment | Where The Nice People Are Round 2

Yonks ago, back in what feels like the blogging dark ages, I wrote a blog post about where the nicest shopping experiences were to be had.  Just as a little experiment to show appreciation for the friendly people who make your day that bit nicer.  And yesterday I decided 3 years down the line to do High Street Experiment Round II, with different shops, and see where had the friendliest staff and who made for the nicest experience as a…

My 10 Favourite Instagram Accounts | Who I’m Loving on The ‘Gram

I’ve slated Instagram’s algorithm hoo ha on here lots, but I’m still hopelessly addicted to it (aren’t we all?).  So today, instead of ranting like I seem all too fond of lately, I thought I’d share some insta love and shoutout some of my absolute fave accounts.  There’s a selection here of big and small, niche and random, travel, fitness, funnies, bit of everything – there’s no set criteria for making it onto Lily’s Favourite List (big achievement that) because…

When The Creativity Gotta Come Out

Here returneth the ‘typed up post that I scribbled in a notebook on a train’ thing that I’m rather fond of. This time scribbled in a notebook balanced on a bag that the zip went bust on because I couldn’t get the bloody thing open again.  So that was fun.  I kept alternating between staring out the smudgy window, watching the city and then the countryside and then a load of hedge go by, and observing the people around me. …

Thou Shalt Take No Sh*t

HI.  All going well this should go up sometime whilst I’m dressed up to the nines at the #GoGlamGala blogger event tonight, hopefully without having tripped on my dress / smudged lipstick across my face / spilled a drink down myself.  That’s the plan anyway.  Bag is packed for my trip down to London with Tasmin later and I’m 92% certain I haven’t one singular shoe or something like that.  Let’s hope. Following my post last week about what we…

The Struggle to Pull Yourself Together After Christmas and New Year

Hands up who’s failing a couple of their goals already?  My room’s a tip and I’ve blogged once in 5 days so erm, those two have gone down the toilet already.  Nevertheless, there’s hope for the rest! Can I also get a hands up from all the people who are struggling to kickstart their brain again after Christmas?  Seriously I think my brain cells have deteriorated and the ‘it’s 6pm, what have I actually done all day?!?’ feelings are kicking…
