13 ways that I’m failing at being an adult

Recently, a few of my friends have told me they can’t believe how grown up I am now, and how I’m a proper ‘adult’. I’ve got a great job, amazing friends, a lovely place to live, a fab car and am engaged to the best person ever. However, this is just how it looks to…

What a month of blogging has taught me 

My little space on the internet is one month old this week! If it was human, Rosie’s Life would be the size of a poppy seed now, and I’m super proud of my little poppy seed so far. While it’s only been four weeks, I feel like I’ve learned so much in such a short…

I’ve been wanting to do a calligraphy class for a couple of years now, but put it off and tried to teach myself using books. When I say ‘tried’, I mean I’ve done it maybe three times at home, and got frustrated that I wasn’t as good as everyone on Instagram. Over the past couple…

How to style a lob: beachy waves with Bumble & Bumble

I’ve had a lob (aka long-bob) for around a year now, and never bothered to do much with it other than straighten it. My hair was getting frazzled with heat and bleach, and my hairdresser has refused to let me grow it out – hence why I still have a lob! My hair is naturally…
