FINDING INSPIRATION

I’m sure we all have those times when we don’t feel particularly motivated or inspired by the world around us – it’s often difficult to pull yourself out of those phases, but more often than not, they tend to pass quite quickly. This is sometimes how I feel about blogging – I don’t always feel like I have exciting images to share, and I definitely don’t always feel like standing in front of the camera…

STYLING THE SLIP DRESS | AUTUMN EDIT

We have officially said goodbye to the last of the summer, but hopefully not the last of the sunshine – It’s about that time when I get the urge to rejig my wardrobe and make note of what I need for the new season ahead. When you find yourself in a bit of a style rut, there’s nothing simpler than a black slip dress to  help you get inspired again. I’m a strong believer that basics are best when it comes to opening up your wardrobe…

TRANSITIONAL

It’s edging towards that time of year again when it’s finally acceptable to start digging out your jumper collection and making autumn/winter wish lists. Evenings get shorter and admittedly, the mornings start to get a lot harder, but it’s definitely the transition towards my favourite time of the year…

SUNDAY IN NQ | A PHOTO DIARY

Thought I’d share a little visual diary with you from Sunday – we spent the afternoon wandering around the NQ markets, before stopping for coffee and possibly the best banana cake ever. I love market stalls of all different kinds and I’m a complete magpie so it was the perfect way to end a magical weekend…

CURRENT MAKE UP BAG

I’ve finally put together a little make up post for you guys – this is something I get asked about almost daily, so I thought I’d share what I’m currently using on my face and why it works for me. It’s worth mentioning that I’m in no way an expert when it comes to make up, and I’ve pretty much stuck to the same look since I was seventeen. I’m hugely inspired by sixties make up – Edie Sedgwick, Francoise Hardy, and of course Jane Birkin, have all influenced the way I like to put my make up together…

LITTLE BLACK SWING DRESS

Hope you’re all having a great week so far – I’m beyond ready for Friday to show it’s face as you can probably tell from these photos – the eye bags are real. Just wanted to share this little swing dress with you by a brand called Nobody’s Child, who I’ve mentioned a few times already, both on here and over on Instagram. They have some really great affordable pieces that often feel vintage inspired with a bit of a modern twist…

POLKA DOT SLIP

There’s been quite a few cooler days here in Manchester recently – which I’ve actually been thankful for! It’s the perfect opportunity to layer up a simple slip dress and dig out the ankle boots. As much as I love sandals and summery shoes, they can make your outfits seem a bit boring and repetitive after a while. Hence, why I’m looking forward to the seasonal changes that the next few months have in store…

SUNDAY STROLLS

This week has flown by for me so a chilled out weekend was just what the doctor ordered. I love spending Sundays wandering around Manchester in search of new coffee spots, before heading back home to watch a film and try out new recipes with my favourite human. It’s also the perfect opportunity to wear something laid back and comfortable – which I’m always in favor of in case you hadn’t guessed already…

MEMORY LANE

Last weekend I got to travel up to the Lake District for what felt like the first time in ages! We headed up there to celebrate a friend’s wedding and it was a much needed change of scenery. Sometimes it’s nice to find yourself with little or no internet connection and just switch off from city life…

BRIGHT EYES | BLUE DENIM

I’ve spoken about my love for denim a lot so far on this blog – it’s something I’m naturally drawn to and base the majority of my outfits around. Good denim that fits you well and is the right shade seems to be a nightmare to come by. Therefore, my advice would be not to hesitate if you find a great piece of vintage denim, it will open up your wardrobe to new options and last you for years to come…
