2017 treated me to so much โค๏ธ Along with @samunsted, I explored some wonderful European cities I had never had the opportunity to visit, armed with great recommendations, while also increasing my appreciation and love for London. When the year began, I didnโ€™t know I was starting the last eight months of a fabulous 4.5 year journey at @birchboxuk, or that Iโ€™d make the difficult decision to take the leap into freelancing. But that moment of bravery led to some fantastic consulting work with the content/social teams at @lush and the gift of a little time to work out whatโ€™s next. Mostly, though, it was all about the amazing people I laughed with, worked with, and spoke to, both familiar and new. I feel so so lucky to know so many wonderful people. Who knows what 2018 will bring, but Iโ€™m excited for it! #bestnine2017 #positivity #newyearseve ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜โœจ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป๐Ÿ•ถโšก๏ธ๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿป๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ๐Ÿ’ก๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ”ฎ๐Ÿ’ค December 31, 2017 at 11:10AM
Today @samunsted and I went full tourist and got a guided tour of the #housesofparliament and it was pretty fascinating. Not sure why weโ€™ve never done it before. I guess youโ€™re always the last to do touristy things in your own city?! We were shown around by a silver haired wonder named Jennifer who had the coolest gold trainers, all the knowledge, and a bit of resentment there wasnโ€™t more diversity in the House of Commons. Loved her. Totally worthwhile. This is the floor in the Palace of Westminster, btw. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป #lovelondon #touristing #ihavethisthingwithfloors #palaceofwestminster December 02, 2017 at 06:11PM
Some of my favourite recent @lush discoveries: for after an AM shower – #onceuponatimebodylotion ๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ; and before bed – #sleepybodylotion ๐Ÿ˜ด; #haircustard smells too delish and fights flyaways; #maskofmagnaminty – great for spots and smells minty (obvs); #thebirthofvenusjellymask tones and balances skin; #daddyoshampoo beats brassiness and smells like sweets๐Ÿฌ; #supertrampbubblebar goes further than a bath bomb, with extra bubbles. All repeat purchases. Not pictured #aromacodeodorant – a natural solid deodorant bar that WORKS (the dream) and #vanillaryperfume ๐Ÿ˜ which basically smells like the Hair Custard. Lush.
