3 Ways to Stay Motivated When Working from Home

There are two types of people: those who enjoy a life free from distractions and thrive in a home working environment, and those who struggle to find the oomph to get up and go. Between the challenges of homeschooling, finding the right workspace, and navigating a working world of Zoom meetings, it can feel impossible to accomplish anything. If you’re struggling to strike the balance between enjoying the flexibility of working from home, and smashing through your to-do list, here are 3 top tips to keep you motivated.

Perfumes Perfect For Summer*

by Nikki LLL Blog, June 18, 2021

 I LOVE perfume. I'm not one of those pure experts who can smell a fragrance and pick out all the notes & tones & that - my feedback normally goes along the lines of "that smells well fit" ... but it's still something I'm passionate about. 

You can tell I genuinely feel strongly about perfume, as I don't resent paying the price on the bottle, and actively avoid knock-offs (yeah I know, not like me at all that is it!) So there's that. Pure, unadulterated passion that; in my eyes.


For those of you who don’t know what a defined body is, it's not the same as being toned. Toned is one way of being defined. Having a defined body is where you can separate your muscle groups, giving your limbs a look that you would find in a neatly drawn anatomy book. It takes a long time to get a defined body and with good reason. Our muscles like to clump together. When we exert energy, tiny rips occur in our muscles. Over these rips, scar tissue tends to linger. This tightens our muscles together and prevents them from separating. To avoid all of this, let’s take a look at what you can do.
If you do a lot of your work in a home office, like many of us, then you can find that any working environment, even one custom-made to suit your needs, can feel frustrating and constraining after a while. For that reason, it’s worth taking the time to update it and re-invigorate it from time to time. Here's a few tips on how you can do exactly that!

Whether it's your child’s first day at school or whether they are just heading back after the summer holidays, there are a number of things that they will need on the big day. If you are unsure on what they need, or just don’t know where to start, here is a guide to everything your child will need for heading back to school.

My Top Chi Chi London Picks For Summer 2021*

by Nikki LLL Blog, May 19, 2021

Now that we've passed the May 17th milestone and (in-between mad bursts of hailstone, torrential rain, gusts of wind flipping the wheelie bins on their arses & pyar thunder storms lashing down on me when I'm obv in my flip flops) Summer is on the horizon, I have caught shopping FEVER! I want all the outfits, I want all the social occasions and I want them NOW, hun.

I've recently been perusing the Chi Chi London* website (I never knew just how versatile their range was before tbh, they've got some fab daytime dresses as well as their statement glam pieces) for a bit of inspo, and I've picked out some of my top Summer 2021 picks to share with yous in today's post. 

Skincare trends, amiright? 

It seems like every other day a new trend or 'TikTok must-have' product drops - and / or a new skincare term is coined. From 'purging' to 'glass skin', from 'ice rolling' to 'skinimalism' and from 'phygital' skincare to 'slugging'... it's wild out there, guys

With so much information and so many skincare enthusiasts, experts & bloggers sharing their skin hacks, it can feel overwhelming trying to wade through all the info out there, trying to determine what actually works - or what will be best suited to your complexion. 

Developing a morning routine to follow every morning is very useful for our health and mindset. All too often, people wake up before work at the last minute and rush about when getting ready. However, this method isn’t great when your health is concerned. 

One of your priorities each morning should be maintaining your oral health and incorporating some steps to achieve this into your morning routine. Lucky for you, we have researched for you and compiled some tips into this article. Interested? Stick around to find out more.

Hot Interior Trends For Summer 2021*

by Nikki LLL Blog, April 02, 2021
Thanks to the pandemic and everyone staying at home, 2020 fostered renewed interest in interiors. And now, in 2021, many of those ideas are maturing into exciting concepts. In this post, we take a look at some of the hot interior trends to expect this coming summer. 

Getting On The Property Ladder*, #WednesdayWisdom

by Nikki LLL Blog, March 09, 2021

Owning a home is the dream for so many people, but I can confirm that as a renter (and a skint renter at that!), the thought of getting on the property ladder induces feelings of pure stress. Property is by no means cheap! And neither are all the fees that come with purchasing one. Gah!

Some slightly brighter news on the 2021 horizon though, when it comes to buying your own gaff - the recent budget announcement has introduced the idea of 95% mortgages... which means the prospect of putting down just a 5% deposit. The stamp duty holiday has also been extended, meaning that those purchasing property between now and the end of June could potentially save themselves thousands. It seems that ‘generation rent’ is finally being given the opportunity to become ‘generation buy’. And I'm here for it!

Just like everything else in our lives right now, Valentine's 2021 is gonna be unprecedented. We can't book meals, trawl the shops for the perfect gift, head out for drinks at your favourite bar or God forbid book a mini-break. Some couples may be forced to celebrate the big day via Zoom. Some couples may not celebrate it at all. And some of us (like me) may be totes single and opting to choose self love, and celebrate Galentine's / Palentine's this year instead. 

No matter how you're spending Valentine's Day - and no matter who with, things are going to be different this year. But they can still be special, they can still be romantic and they can still sit within your budget; with Jack's.

New In Beauty: Jolie Beauty Highlighters*

by Nikki LLL Blog, February 01, 2021

It's been a hot minute (or not so hot, in my case) since I've done a blog post about makeup. Or let's be real, a blog post about... anything. My life is chaotic AF right now and this lil blog has took not just a backseat, but has probs more accurately been banished to the boot; in my metaphorical life / car analogy.

2020-2021 - Where Have I Been? Grab The Tea Huns 🍵

by Nikki LLL Blog, January 31, 2021

Lol if you've clicked on this expecting pure goss, you're about to be as disappointed as I am every time I check my bank & realise I'm still not a millionaire. However, if you're here for the ranting and tea, HIHIHI let's be m8s. 

I haven't meant to be quite so terrible at keeping up with blog posts and social media over the past year or so. I really haven't. My channels have suffered due to my lack of posting - and I've dropped followers faster than Imma be droppin' it like it's hot as soon as we're allowed to hit the club dancefloors again. I've lost relationships with brands, PRs and similar contacts. I've been snipped firmly off many a PR list, and probs blacklisted from a fair few too. Loooooool.

No matter where in the house it goes, art never looks out of place. It’s the perfect thing to hang on the walls to bring a room together and make the space feel a little more homely.

Of course, certain art styles or colour schemes work better, depending on where you put them. For instance, a cool-coloured landscape tends to suit a bathroom more than a vibrant surrealist piece.

When it comes to the office, abstract art can be a good way to go. Why is that, though, and how do you pick artwork that suits the room and creates a more homely atmosphere?
