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.

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…

THE COLOUR RED

I’ve always found it strange how certain colours have feelings or moods attached to them – these can often be triggered in so many different ways, for so many different people. Whether it be the little blue dress that makes you feel confident, the silver shoes that transport you to a happy place, or that little red vintage jumper that instantly brightens your mood, and your outfit too…

THE VINTAGE JUMPER

My love affair with vintage only seems to get stronger as the years go by – I have quite the collection of vintage pieces, everything from bags to battered Levi jeans that I can’t seem to part with. There’s something different about an entirely vintage outfit, the way it makes you feel as though there’s a story behind it, a little bit of history that gives it that added charm…

The basics we own really become the backbone of our personal style, and are often the pieces we turn to in times of need. They are the essential key pieces, the time savers, and the comfort blankets ready and waiting in our wardrobes. Of course, these basic items will differ from person to person, but I thought I’d give you a rundown of my absolute must haves, and how to make the best out of them…

FEEL GOOD STYLING | TOP TIPS

I think it’s safe to say that sometimes we tend to find ourselves feeling negative about the way we look, the clothes we own, and the way they can sometimes make us feel. We often aren’t mindful of the impulse purchases we make and this can leave us feeling ‘stuck in a rut’. I thought it might be fun to talk you through some of my top tips for feeling good about my body image – everything from educating myself to increase a positive mind set, to buying fancy underwear, well, just because…

I have been toying around with the idea of this blog post for quite a while now – if you follow me over on Instagram, then you may have picked up that I have a huge admiration for cinema, and the outfits that have now become iconic in their own right. I thought I’d do a little round up of some of my absolute favourite ‘fashion in film’ moments, and how they have inspired everything from the way I cut my hair, to the everyday essentials hanging in my wardrobe…

SET BACKS & STAYING TRUE

Hello you wonderful lot – last week was a strange old week for me, one of those that starts off in a very optimistic fashion, and then everything that possibly could go wrong, goes wrong. This happens to all of us and it’s true that bad things usually present themselves in groups of three. It’s sometimes easy to get caught up in negativity instead of focusing on the positive things that surround us too…

JANUARY BLUES

Christmas has officially been and gone, the New Year’s hangovers have well and truly eased, and the realisation that it’s 2017 is finally starting to sink in. Although, as always, my brain is still incapable of writing the correct date down until at least six months into the year. Not long ago, I wrote a little post on how the new year can often bring a positive sense of change, so I thought it was only right to be realistic and talk about the negative feelings that the new year can often magnify, and the different ways in which I try to overcome these. Oh, and I wore a blue dress for the occasion…

THE TEDDY COAT

The teddy coat has been around for a while now but seems to have had a major comeback this season – there’s been lots of different variations available on the high street, and most of them have sold out within a few weeks! I can definitely see why – it’s the perfect cosy cover up that makes you feel as though you haven’t parted with your duvet, but adds that cool edge to any outfit…
