Brunch is my favourite food group and yep, I’ll accept being basic af with that admission but, what you gonna do? This gal likes eggs, and anything on toast. Last week I popped to Cartwheel in Nottingham with my hun Robyn for a catch up. She took the photos that I obviously couldn’t take myself – thanks babe!
Another post full of shopping-enabling picks for you today, gals. I don’t know what happened but after I tried on this amazing River Island crochet jumper I’ve been obsessing over yellow. 100% my new fave colour of the summer. I picked up some amazing yellow sandals in Primark last week and I’m just trying to stop myself buying all of the picks in this post! Let me know what you think about these pieces in the comments.
I’m still obsessed with Refinery 29 money diaries and I totally want to be on one. Life goals right there.
I asked on my Instagram stories whether people would rather read what I spend in a week or what I eat in a week and it was a huge percentage towards spend so basically you are all as nosy as I am and I’m totally OK with that. I thought I’d kick this off in June and start from a Saturday where I’m more likely to actually spend something! Grab a cuppa and have a lil’ read.
This post was going to be my May favourites but I didn’t quite get around to sorting my life out so it’s a general summer-themed jumble of some products that I’ve been loving recently and wanted to share! There’s everything from tan to library books so I hope you enjoy!
1. The blonde booster
Jeans are 100% my go to thing to wear every day. They’re just so easy and I’m lucky enough to have a job casual enough that I can wear them every day if I wanted to. As the trends of SS18 make their way into our wardrobes, it’s time to choose your faves! But, when it comes to washes, shapes and styles, do you know this season’s jeans and if they’re going to make you feel awesome? Let’s check it out.
When I was younger I loved styling, I was much more into ‘fashion’ than I am now and it was all about the statement piece for me. These days, as I’ve grown up a little bit I’m more about style, classics and the odd trend that catches my eye! Of course I love a good statement piece still but I’m definitely more into wearing maybe one statement piece at a time with some classic pieces not 3!
Who doesn’t love a little picnic in the sunshine? We’ve had a National Trust membership for about 6 or 7 months now and we’ve been loving exploring new places. It’s the perfect way to get out and about basically for free (after you’ve paid your monthly membership) and all of the sites are amazing. We pay £9 a month for both of us and that includes unlimited access to most National Trust sites including parking. Some of the places that we’ve visited have been priced at around £10 an adult to get in plus parking so we always feel like we get our money’s worth. Plus, even if you don’t manage to get to one a month, by paying the membership fee you’re helping to preserve amazing places like Lacock Abbey.
Midi skirts used to give me nightmarish flash backs of my old school kilt that was absolutely huge, scratchy and not at all cute. Why did everyone else’s kilt actually fit them and the school shop lady thought I was apparently about 20 stone heavier than I was? No idea but it was horrific. Now, midi skirts are sassy, flirty and all kinds of Insta-worthy. These are 7 of the babes that I’ve spotted recently and wanted to share.
Wedding season is well and truly here, I don’t know how many hen and stag parties I’ve seen roaming the various cities I’ve visited recently but they are everywhere! I’m heading to one this week myself and I’m so excited as it’s my first wedding since I was 12 and a bridesmaid so it’ll be a very different affair to that one I expect. It’s also a good friend’s wedding and I’m just so thrilled for her I’m so excited to be celebrating with them! Here are three outfits that are perfect for this glorious weather and super happy occasions.
Well, I say Leeds because technically it is in Leeds. But, it is not in the city centre. Only visit these guys if you’re driving or you’re going to the student-y side of Leeds anyway. Don’t take a £13 round trip in an Uber for one like we did. Doh. (Lol, just read that back, not an intentional doughnut pun, I’m just gonna leave that in there…). It was almost worth it though because these guys are insanely delicious.
