A TIMELESS BAG | BEARA BEARA

For me, a bag is always as much a part of my outfit as the shoes I’m wearing or the blouse I have on. Granted, it’s the last thing I might pick up, but it’s definitely never the last to be considered. I’ve always had a love for interesting, vintage inspired bags, whether that’s a slightly impractical basket bag, or something sturdy and timeless…

THE STATEMENT BLAZER | REASONS TO INVEST

I’ve had a blazer in my wardrobe for as long as I can remember – as my style has grown and evolved, a blazer seems to be one piece that’s always stuck around. It’s a classic piece that for me, helps to blur the line between strictly masculine or feminine dressing. It suits everyone, it looks good on everyone, it comes in an array of different styles and designs, and it’s definitely not just suitable for that job interview you’ve been dreading. Without further adieu, I’ve put together a fun little list of reasons of why a blazer will always be a piece worth investing in…

MOON RIVER | AN INTRODUCTION

I’ve been widening my brand horizon a lot more recently – partly due to being a bit uninspired by what the high street has to offer, but mostly due to wanting to try out new designs and be a little more experimental in my outfit choices. I’ll forever be a jeans and blouse girl (it’s just my happy place), but there are times when I fancy something different, or I want to welcome pieces into my wardrobe that make me feel a certain way…

BEHIND THE SELFIE | GIRLS SUPPORT GIRLS #3

Welcome back to another instalment of my Girls Support Girls series – a series of posts in which I hope to continue for as long as I have this little internet space to call my own. I have to say, out of everything that I write on here, this series is proving to be the most challenging. Writing about myself is always easier as I have nobody else to let down, but telling other peoples stories can often be down right daunting. Whenever something gives me that feeling, I know it’s usually important that I do it anyway, to not only challenge myself, but to utilise the internet in the most productive way possible. To connect with others, to help share their stories, and to offer comfort and inspiration to other women…

YOUR MID TWENTIES

I recently turned twenty five and got to thinking about how much my life and responsibilities have changed, even in the last couple of years! I thought it might be fun to put together a light hearted list of all the things to expect in your mid twenties (from someone in their mid twenties)…

GROWING UP

I recently had one of those moments where I was dwelling on the old ‘how did I get here?’, and how things might have panned out differently had I taken a different university course, rejected that internship, or even something as small as not downloading Instagram. It’s funny to think how the little things end up shaping so much of our future without us realising – it’s a game I could play all day long (and would probably drive me crazy in the process). I thought it might be fun to take you through some of the job titles I have considered over the years, and how they might have brought me to where I am now…

A SLEEPOVER IN THE COTSWOLDS | DISCOVER AVEDA

This week I got the chance to head to the Cotswold for an overnight stay with AVEDA – a brand that I have come to both love and respect over the last couple of years! The trip was a chance to get to know more about Aveda’s heritage, whilst also exploring Ayurveda and how it’s shaped the very foundations of the brands continued philosophy…

STAYING INSPIRED | HELLO FASHION MAGAZINE

I have always been a fan of magazines from as far back as I can remember, whether it was picking my mums up from the coffee table and scribbling my own ideas all over them, or buying in bulk so that I could cut and paste them all over my bedroom walls. I love to be surrounded by imagery, and I feel that this is where my love of fashion and photography stems from. Now that media is readily available to us online, it’s easy to abandon the pastime of bringing home your favourite magazine, written by creatives you admire, full of carefully curated inspiration for whenever you decide you need a little escapism…

YELLOW BRICK ROAD

I recently did something I don’t do all that often and wore the colour yellow – a little vintage blouse I came across I was absolutely certain wouldn’t suit me. I did that thing where I tried it on in the mirror a few different ways, before taking it off and throwing it to the side. The next day, I came back to it, put it on again and tied it up with my jeans – this day I didn’t really care if it suited me or not, the colour made me feel good and this got me thinking about how life tends to trick us into thinking we know what we want, and how quickly this can shift in the space of a week…
