ASOS SUMMER | NEW STRIPES

Summer is well underway which means our Instagram feeds are full of people enjoying festivals, lazing on the beach, and generally parading about in their glorious summer attire. Personally, it’s my favourite time of the year to scroll through Instagram – I find it so inspiring to catch up on where others are travelling to and the outfits they are excited to take with them. If there’s one print in particular that’s been catching my eye more than every lately, it’s stripes! And I’m not just talking the classic Breton top that we all know and love…

LA DOLTE VITA

Yep, a bit of a joke title considering I wore this exact outfit to the post office just last week. That’s the thing about fashion though isn’t it? It has the power to make you feel like you’re strolling through some quaint little Italian village, even when you’re running the most tedious of errands…

SKINCARE | NEW DISCOVERIES

It probably doesn’t come across as much on here as other things, but I bloody love skincare. I love everything about it, the ritual of a routine, discovering new brands, and finding products that really really work. Products that I can recommend to friends and family, to you guys, to basically anyone who will listen…

THE EXPIRY DATE | SK-II CAMPAIGN

Recently I had the opportunity to watch the new campaign video by skincare brand SK-II, a brand that I had heard lots about but didn’t have much first hand experience with. As an avid skincare lover, I was immediately intrigued by the video and opened it up straight away to see what it was all about. In just a few short minutes, the film manages to capture a feeling that so many women will be familiar with – this idea that as women, we are born with an expiry date. Or in short, societal expectations which we seem to constantly have to battle in order to be happy and content…

MODERN LOVE

I got to thinking about relationships lately, and how vastly different dating/being in a relationship must be in comparison to when my parents were younger. There’s so many more reasons for people to feel under strain these days – modern life often encourages us to communicate via screens, and shun those real life experiences more and more frequently…

25 THINGS

It’s officially my 25th birthday, so I thought what better way to mark the occasion than to put together a blog post in celebration. A sort of bookmark to myself – something to look back on, and hopefully something to inspire others too! Today also marks the anniversary of my blog (yup, I started on my birthday, one whole year ago to this day), never in my wildest dreams did I think I would achieve so much in 12 months, let alone for it to become my full time job. It’s been such an exciting, life changing, and often overwhelming, year – getting used to being a one man band, a new routine, a whole new way of life…

THE VINTAGE DRESS | TOP TIPS

I am that annoying person that gets asked where my dress is from by someone with appreciative eyes – only to let them down with the dreaded ‘it’s vintage’. Suddenly you see their heart sink, and you feel the vintage induced guilt all over again. What makes it worse is that being a blogger is now my full time occupation, but yet, I just won’t quit my love for vintage. With this in mind, I thought I’d give you a run down of my ‘vintage dress code’, which is a slightly fancier way of saying I’m gonna let you in on a few top tips when it comes it making the best of that vintage dress you found. The one stuffed at the back of your wardrobe because you ‘just liked the print’, but it didn’t quite fit right…

HEADSPACE

I recently spent a full week in beautiful Wales, waking up to the sound of nature, fresh air, and nothing but greenery for as far as the eyes could see. No sirens, busy roads, or northern chanting in sight. I have to say, I didn’t realise how much I needed the break (both mentally and physically) until I actually unpacked, sat down on my new bed, and breathed a huge sigh of relief…

THE LITTLE BLACK DRESS | FREE PEOPLE

A LBD is essential in every wardrobe, that’s just a given! No matter what shape, size, or age, a little black dress will always be your fail safe. It’s the one item I find myself rummaging for when it comes to a last minute night out or that unexpected dress code. Black gets a bit of a tough rep when it comes to summer dressing – white becomes everyone’s favourite go-to, and the black items in our wardrobes tend to get cast aside for another season…

HUNTER WELLIES | A BRITISH SUMMER LOOKBOOK

I love a good pair of wellies come festival season. I’m a huge fan of how they look with a trusty vintage dress, and nothing could be more British when teamed with a waterproof parka. They have become the backbone of festival style, and luckily they look great with an array of different outfits/basically whatever the hell you feel like wearing whilst you’re having fun in the fields. The right pair means we can stomp through the rain and mud until our hearts content, styling it out the way we do best, with a good sense of humour (and a thick pair of socks)…
