WARM IN WINTER | CAFÉ DE FLORE

I recently got the chance to visit Café De Flore whilst in Paris – I have to blame Tumblr and Pinterest for making me want to go, and spending a ridiculous amount on coffee. However, it’s definitely worth it as a little luxurious treat, sometimes we all need a little of that in our lives – particularly in January. I don’t know what it is about this time of the month that turns me into a sluggish, unmotivated, sloth creature. I just haven’t been hit with that new year get up and go just yet, so a little getaway provided the perfect distraction…

WHITE SHOES IN WINTER

After a few wonderful and relatively stress free days in Paris, it feels good to be home and getting my teeth sunk into some new blog posts. We managed to shoot quite a few outfits during our stay, so you can expect lots of Paris themed content coming your way over the next couple of weeks! It was quite a chilled trip in all honesty – half of it was spent picture taking, and the other half exploring some of the places on my wish list. Paris is definitely one of those places that gets better with each visit – especially once you’ve ticked off all the usual tourist spots. It’s only then that you can really wander around without the inevitable tourist guilt that presents itself when visiting a new city…

A SICILIAN GETAWAY | A WEEK OF HIGHLIGHTS

I spent all of last week in beautiful Sicily, in the little hilltop town of Taormina to be precise! Positano, Puglia and Lake Garda had all been high on my Italian wish list, but we finally settled on Taormina after a couple of weeks of researching. We left booking a summer getaway until the very last minute, so neither of us knew what to expect. We arrived in the middle of the night, groggy from the flight, and unable to see much of the landscape around us. On the first morning, I woke up around 5am and pushed open our balcony shutters to find a pastel pink sunrise waiting for me. I was instantly filled with excitement, a sudden feeling that this was a place I was going to fall deeply in love with…

DS AUTOMOBILES | A PARISIAN ADVENTURE

I recently had a very ‘pinch me’ opportunity to visit Paris in collaboration with DS Automobiles – the chance to ride around the magical city and uncover some secret locations along the way. I last visited in February and it pretty much rained the entire time in true Parisian style, but Paris in the sunshine is way more beautiful than I ever could have imagined…

FOUR DAYS IN PARIS | A PHOTO DIARY

Hello you wonderful lot – I’m officially back in Manchester, but my heart is definitely in Paris! I recently visited for four days and they were the most magical four days I’ve had in a long while. We spent our time getting lost down picturesque little back streets, exploring book shops, and eating an unhealthy amount of macaroons. I thought I’d share a little more insight into our trip for those of you that have been asking. I’ll be talking you through my ‘must see’ spots, and some top tips I picked up for anyone who plans on visiting in the near future…
