Millennial pink brings all the bloggers to the yard and they’re like, ‘Let’s spend 20 minutes arranging our food.’ 😂 💕@sanspereofficial #abmfoodie http://ift.tt/2rkLABG

For every perfectly posed photo on my grid, there’s at least 57 in my Recently Deleted folder. Tyra would not be impressed. 🤦🏾‍♀️ I’d like to thank @sanspereofficial for the perfect backdrop and @bubblyaquarius for putting up with my 📷 demands. 💕 #bodenbyme http://ift.tt/2mVLdbV

‘If you can't appreciate what you have now, nothing else will ever be enough.’ 🙌🏾 Another quote from a podcast to remind me of the importance of gratitude (if anyone knows the source, it’d be a massive help). This year I’m trying to enjoy the journey more as each time we progress, the goalposts move. Flatshare living, singledom and my 237 confusing iPhone notes will be something I look back on fondly one day. 😊 #abmspaces http://ift.tt/2DguFF4

3 Blogging Improvements To Make For The Year Ahead - I Want You To Know

Time For A Spring Clean OK so the last time I did this sort of post I may have been a little too optimistic. I still have 755895 RAW files on my computer and the list of newsletters I’ve saved for later is piling up. There's only so much you can do in between Christmas and New Year and most of my plans involved cheese. [ 873 more words ]

Another snap of the abode, since I’ve had the same jeans on for four days now (and I’m probably 50% strepsils). 💛 Feeling all kinds of positive after watching Oprah’s Golden Globes speech, having her as my inspiration since the age of 10 was a good decision. 🙌🏾 #abmspaces http://ift.tt/2m9XKHt

An Honest Look At 2017 - I Want You To Know

Trust me to be doing my 2017 roundup on the 5th! To be honest the first week of January is always a bit weird, in school I’d be writing the wrong date most of the time and still eating the reduced mince pies. Remember Kristabel, you need to allow one 'worse-for-wear' day and one 'WTF am I doing day?', before things start falling into place. [ 1,521 more word ]

Middle Eastern Shredded Lamb with chickpea rice, get in my belly. 😜 I’m going to be sharing some foodie faves soon but I’d love to know what you’ve been making recently, whether it’s meaty or not. Perhaps this is the year I finally attempt Korean Fried Chicken (before giving up and searching for it on Deliveroo)... 🍴#abmfoodie http://ift.tt/2ENR0HJ

A belated Happy New Year! 🎉Breaking all the freelancer rules by working from bed this morning but have you heard the rain outside?! I need all the help I can get when it comes to deciphering 15-page contracts. Is anyone else having a bit of a slow start today? 😬 #abmspaces http://ift.tt/2DPWgtn

How are you spending the last day of the year? 🎉 I’m aiming to be a productive ninja by shooting a recipe, attending a charity Zumbathon, cleaning and dolling myself up for @livpurvis’ gathering later on. Also need to think of the face I’m going to pull when all the couples do the midnight snog. 😂😬😭😅🙃 #abmwinter http://ift.tt/2Cf8OxS

There’s a new post about my love of Germany at Christmas time. 🇩🇪 Think fried potato cakes, timber framed houses (complete with elderly photobombers) and a toddler cousin who’s obsessed with my vlogging camera. ❤️ #abmwinter http://ift.tt/2pZFIgq

How I Spent Christmas In Germany - I Want You To Know

Wunderschön My annual Christmas trip to Germany is a bit of a thing now. Since going home for the festive season usually involves a bus and overground train to the other side of London, I’ve created a new tradition that gives me a chance to have a break from reality. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve become less precious about things being exactly the same each year. [ 701 more words ]

Can I swap my flatshare for one of these fairytale houses please? 😍 Wiesbaden is full of neoclassical architecture, undamaged by the war. We’re heading here tonight to start the celebrations Hungarian style, with champers, fried fish and cake. 🍰 http://liketk.it/2tZBC #liketkit @liketoknow.it http://ift.tt/2BvE6fI

... Mariah’s royalty cheque? I did consider putting ‘Snowman’s not hot’ on my letter board but decided to play it safe. 💰💰💰 This is about as festive as my room gets, thanks to gifts from @afternooncrumbs & @elemis. It’s taken all my willpower to save the gingerbread man for the ‘gram. 😬 #abmspaces #abmholidayspirit http://ift.tt/2BP4Lay

AD | Watch me now! ⏰ If you fancy getting creative with your Christmas shopping, then @swatch_uk have a pop-up that will solve your gifting dilemmas. You can design a unique watch for a loved one at any Swatch store or also online, choosing from pastel pops, quirky stripes or festive glitter. 🎁 I created one along with my BFF @shinythoughts and I think they suit our colour-loving personalities perfectly. Which one is your fave? P.S Have a peek at my Stories to see how it’s all done! 😘 #SwatchXMe http://ift.tt/2AU39sC

OK I’ve given in and started covering up the ankles again. 120 denier tights and faux fur all the way! 🙌🏾❄️ P.S This week’s video is basically how I get ready for a Tinder date, getting hair stuck in my curling tong and going highlighter crazy.

My #FentyBeauty bits looking pristine before I messed them all up. 😂 I’m sharing my thoughts on the launch and why it wiped the floor with other ‘inclusive’ efforts. Brands, advertising and magazines have the power to shift cultural perceptions (take note Alexandra Shulman) and the beauty industry should be empowering, rather than making us feel like we don’t matter.

AD | #SCHWARZKOPFcreators I call this look co-working glam. 😂 I’m far too practical so instead of splashing out on sequins for the party season, I just try to dress up something that I can wear all year round. Thanks to my blue hair, most of the hard work has been done for me. 💙 My trick is to refresh with the @schwarzkopf Colour Expert shampoo & conditioner, protect with Guardian Angel and finish off styling with the Happy Hour hairspray. The compliments still keep coming in, despite the British weather’s attempts at ruining everything. ❄️ #MYstyle http://ift.tt/2CzxYnH

How Fenty Beauty Got Me Excited About Makeup

Only Rihanna will have me watching Instagram live when queuing for a flight and devouring every bit of information about her Fenty Beauty launch. I’ve seen so many tweets stating the fact that teens today can skip the dream matte mousse and have a range of foundations to choose from. Well, I didn’t even have a my-face-is-a-different-colour-to-my-neck phase. Firstly there weren’t many affordable shades to choose from and I also spent most of my teenage years makeup free (though still obliterating my eyebrows with £3 threading). [ 1,188 more word ]

Ah Liberty flowers, I’ve missed you! I was tempted to move the postbox to complete the shot but decided it was a step too far. 😂 I’m also doing daily Instagram Stories if you fancy taking a look, today I made ramen and gave blood (though not at the same time fortunately). Have you ever donated before? The best thing about doing it in December is all the mince pies. 🙌🏾 #abmplantlady http://ift.tt/2kowUye

Kristabel Loves #12: The December Reading List

If I had to have a Man Repeller-style theme for this month, then it would have to be ‘I was in denial about the end of the year, until the 1st of December happened.’ All of a sudden I've gone from freaking out about not achieving certain goals to thinking 'GIVE ME ALL THE PIGS IN BLANKETS.' The festive season is a great distraction and I'm all for it. [ 610 more words ]

The perils of shooting in Tooting. Tried to keep calm and carry on despite the cars slowing down and people shouting ‘Lemme take a selfie’ for the 67th time. Why do I do this to myself?! 😂 Had so much fun making gingerbread houses today with @camillaackley!

Managed to turn this gloomy corner of my room into something more vibrant thanks to the magic of editing.

A flatlay selection that would probably make a good gift guide. 💕 Life would be so much easier if I could just buy for myself, I don’t know if my Dad would appreciate #FentyBeauty or biscuits made specially for the gram. How’s your Christmas shopping going? 😂 #abmspaces http://ift.tt/2n87OEG

My Smart Shopping Strategies For Black Friday & Beyond

HOW I BECAME A SMARTER SHOPPER Trust me to be more strategic with shopping rather than my career! Over the years my approach has definitely changed, from buying as much as possible and making snap decisions to becoming more patient. The democratisation of fashion was probably a main factor. We can create our own style templates, save for later and search for discounts, instead of feeling the urgency that magazines and brands used to create. [ 1,866 more word ]

How I Style: Old Faves & Stuff I Bought In Sales

I can’t be the only one who did the big wardrobe switch-over and realised that most of last year’s clothes were a little tight? Having a 30-year-old metabolism is a hoot. Now certain items are looking a bit ridiculous (such as this now childlike dress) and I’m trying to replace a few key components for a slightly bustier frame. [ 598 more words ]
