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…

6 Core Beauty Products I Use Until Empty

& Why I’ll Continue Buying Them After the last post on ’empties’, I wanted to update you guys on more key pieces that I’m using until they’re literally running dry. As you know, being a full time blogger I’m often asked to review new beauty launches or try out some innovative products before they’re on the market. However, whilst that’s all fine and dandy, the truth is there remains those essential core products. The ones that I’ll…

Celebrations & Champagne Etiquette With Moët

Goodbye 2016 & Why I’m Taking A Blogging Break It’s almost the end of 2016 and whilst it’s been an amazing year, I’m going to take a well deserved break. I can’t wait to dip my toe in the sea, climb through a forest without a handbag and best of all, not be glued to my phone! Whilst I’ll still be snapping the occasional picture on my Instagram, there’ll be a few scheduled blog posts…

So What Actually Is Hanukkah?

Menorah’s, Dreidels, Latkes, “Happy Hanukkah, Monica” You’ll have seen a post I wrote before, “So What Actually Is A Jewish Wedding?“. It was so lovely hearing feedback and reading comments on how much people didn’t actually know about Jewish weddings. Now I’m obviously bias but they literally are So.Much.Fun. Chatting to a friend the other day, I enjoyed telling her how the upcoming Jewish festival of Hanukkah is not a “Jewish Christmas” but actually something much different.…

An Urban Winter In River Island Studio

& How To Style To Suit You It’s December and who else has noticed it’s surprisingly really sunny? I’m loving it! Although always a fan of heels, I also love that I’m ditching them more and more for some comfortable flats. As I did some shopping recently it got me thinking. So I have to be honest, I’ve kind of found River Island again. Maybe it’s because I’ve a little more of a flexible schedule since…

The 5 Minute Mind Workout

& Why Every Busy Person Needs This Being ‘in the moment’, being present and being aware. Having purpose, having a realisation, gaining clarity. Considering our deliberate actions, considering our body and thinking about our emotions. We could be here all day talking about this couldn’t we. But there’s a reason I’m mentioning it on the blog. Additionally, I’m conscious that once we’re actually aware of what mindfulness is, it makes us all the more patient and tolerant when…

‘Tis The Season For Life’s Little Luxuries

& Here’s How To Make My Favourites Ah Winter. If you’re anything like me, it’s a time for hibernation. Curling up on the sofa with all my grey blankets and my feet snug inside my Ugg slippers. Heck, perhaps even a good film on TV (or The Affair, anyone watching?). Obviously there will be a glass of red in one hand (after my detox obviously). It’s a time for making that extra special effort, putting Deliveroo…
