An Honest Insight Into Blogging & Bullying

& Why I Can’t Keep Quiet About This As I write this I feel a host of emotions. Sadness, anger, frustration, annoyance, agitation. I’m incensed. Livd. I’m never normally one to lose my cool or to write such a strongly opinionated post that focuses on such a negative subject but I can’t help myself today. I’m upset. Exasperated. Perhaps I might calm down and not even post this but right now, I need to get it…

11 Of The Best London Wine Bars 2017

I’ve lived in London coming up to nearly nine years now and despite some amazing restaurants on offer, sometimes nothing quite beats a good wine bar. Especially those with a cheese board on offer. My poison is red wine but funnily enough, I only actually had my first sip of red wine and enjoyed it in my last year of Uni in Bristol. Then that’s all I’d drink given the choice. White wine I only…

How To Get Instant Glossy Locks With Just One Product

When I stand in front of my mirror, wet hair, expending all my energy trying to get a brush through it, I often wonder why it’s so wild and frizzy. If you follow me on Snapchat (LaurenSITC) or watch my Instagram stories, you might have come across a pic or two of me sans hair products. It’s shocking, kind of like wire wool… Perhaps it’s from someone way back in my ancestry with horse like hair?…

This Post Might Just Save Your Life

You’ll have seen me write about my family experience with Cancer before. It’s been in my family past and present. My late grandmother died four years ago. It wasn’t Breast Cancer but to this day, I still remember vividly her time dealing with Cancer, her battle and her unfortunate and hugely sad passing. Cancer affects family, friends and the person who has it. I’d give my right arm to have her back with us or…

Must Have Lip Luxe For Less

From my Instagram you’ll know that I’m big on lips. When I find one I love, I’ll use it over and over again. I’ve drawers full of various lipsticks, tints, balms and stains from every side of the price spectrum. True to what’s on trend, right now I’m loving anything that looks matte, leaves a velvety finish and of course gives me a plumped lip effect. I’ve never had fillers – not for any reason other than…

My Weekend Detoxing, Resting & Recovering

Having just returned from Costa Rica, the first couple of weeks back working were rather tiresome to say the least. The laborious task of catching up on over 3,000 emails, voicemail messages and and tax return conversations with my accountant had me feeling like I needed another break. So when I saw the new package at Champneys that helps to combat that festive indulgence and refresh ones self, I couldn’t resist checking in for some…

The Big Waves Styler Inspired By Khloe Kardashian Is Here

& I’m Loving It You guys know how wild my hair is naturally. It’s not often that I say I enjoy wearing my hair curly either. From my Instagram you’ll know that my ‘quick everyday hair’ is usually styled sleek with the occasional wave on the bottom. I don’t love the big huge bouncy blow drys of 2015 – I much rather anything remotely similar to Khloe Kardashian cool locks these days. Especially her severe…

Classic Rose Gold Finds In The Most Surprising Of Places

& Other Accessories Ok, I’ll admit it. I’m not saying this for attention, or to unintentionally come across as a snob but in the past three years I think I’ve been in to this store  twice. The last of those two times was just before Christmas. The reason? Not some anti store hatred or allergic reactions to the clothing, no. It’s just always so damn busy when I tried to visit before. Probably as my…

2017: My New Year Fashion Resolutions

& Why I’ve Got To Stop Wearing All Black Ahh. It’s 2017! Almost the second week in. While I normally like to spend the first few days looking back over the year gone by. I like working out which goals I hit and which I didn’t even bother considering come February. I feel different this year though, heading in positive, happy, motivated and ready to take on new challenges. Life choices aside, I’m not talking…

A Candid Behind The Scenes Look At 2016

When I wrote a ‘reflection’ of 2015 this time last year, the blog was only 6 months old. Not much to look back on you might think. But actually, I’d already had a host of collaborations under my belt, support from readers and a social following. I really loved throwing back and picking out my best bits. On New Years Day 2017, Sassy turned 1.5 years old. That’s 18 months of blogging. It’s been a tough year…
