ADDING SPARKLE THIS SEASON

The festive season is well and truly upon us, and the pressure to have a different outfit for every event can be well and truly exhausting. Over the years, I’ve found that even the most simple of outfits can be made holiday appropriate with the right balance of accessories on your side. Whether it’s a interesting hair clip, a statement bag, or your favourite layered jewellery – for me, the personality of an outfit always lies within the details! With this in mind, I thought I’d talk you through some of my favourite ways to add a little something extra to my festive attire of choice…

UNDERSTATED FESTIVE LOOKS | KEY PIECES

I recently went to shoot in the Altrincham Everyman Cinema after seeing how beautiful their screening rooms were online. Most of the content I shoot for my blog throughout the year is street style based, so it’s really nice to have a bit more fun with the locations at this time of year. Plus, I’m in favour of a comfortable velvet armchair in exchange of a freezing bench in central Manchester any day of the week…

FESTIVE DRINKS

I thought I’d kick of the first of the festive looks with some recent work I did for Zalando – this blog post isn’t sponsored by the way, but I loved the images we shot for Instagram, and wanted to share them over on here too. The outfit features two of my favourite brands this year, so I thought it was fitting to go into a little more detail about them, whilst hopefully inspiring some festivity at the same time…

WORKING FROM HOME

I thought I’d share something I wrote about working from home. I definitely want to start sharing a different side to my writing on here – shorter posts that I write and never really do anything with. Posts that capture a feeling rather than share an outfit or an idea…

A FESTIVE GIFT GUIDE

I thought I’d put together a little gift guide this year – partly to inspire you guys, and partly to inspire my own Christmas shopping list! Every year it can feel a bit daunting, so I thought I’d curate some of my favourite stocking fillers to get us all off on the right foot (no pun intended). There’s nothing ground groundbreaking here in terms of unique ideas, but I just wanted share some of the things I’d personally love to receive, along with plenty of pieces I know those close to me would love to receive too…

TACKY PHOTO BOOTH | HAIR CLIPS

This blog post has arrived off the back of a very prominent hair accessory addiction – I’ve always been a fan of scrunchies and hair scarfs, but since I cut my hair short, I’ve developed quite the hair clip collection. Not only are they fun to wear, they also give any outfit a slightly tacky/festive feel – making them the ideal stocking fillers. I’ve rounded up my favourite online hair clip destinations for you, along with all my top picks, and some silly photos (just because)…

PLANS AND PREPARATION

Hope you’re all well and having a wonderful week so far! It’s that time of year when everything seems full speed ahead until the Christmas break – it’s easy to get swept up in last minute shopping and loose ends, then before you know it the festive period has passed you by. I’m trying my best to be organised this year, i the hope that I can enjoy the month of December a little more than I did last year…

TIPS TO AVOID IMPULSE BUYING

I’m guilty of being quite an impulsive person – I pretty much know right away when I like/want something, but it’s not always a positive trait. Especially when it comes to my bank balance, I’ve really had to teach myself to curb my spending habits over the years and consider my purchases more carefully. At Twenty Six, I feel like I’m much more in control of my finances and generally behaving like a responsible adult (most of the time) – I budget, I save, and I try to avoid impulse buying as much as possible. With this in mind, I thought I’d share some of my top tips to help you over the Christmas period and beyond…

BABY PINK MOHAIR & LEOPARD PRINT

A cosy knit and a midi skirt are always a fail safe for me at this time of year – especially when teamed with chunky ankle boots. I think one of my greatest investments this year has to be these Grenson boots – they are doing quite the rounds over on Instagram, and I can definitely see why. They make any outfit extra warming on those bitterly cold days, and they keep my feet toasty and dry during the all too often Manchester downpour. I’ve been wearing them with everything and anything, and they haven’t given me blisters once…

WHAT’S UNDERNEATH

I often write about insecurities and things that make me feel anxious – today I felt like writing something different. I decided to type up all the things that make me feel strong in some way. The things that make me proud, the moments that feel important to me…
