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.
I noticed when I was tidying round the other day that all of my favourite products at the moment are following a super cute orange and peach theme. I tend to leave my favourite products out on the top of my Muji drawers as I’m using them and this little line up appeared! There are tonnes of products here but I wanted to run through some new and old beauties that are right at the top of my routine at the moment.
This post is 100% not sponsored. I bloody wish. Matalan, hit me up babes – we’d be a collab made in heaven, not gonna lie. I’m simply just a homeware junkie, Pinterest addict and we’re in the process of buying our first proper home so as you can expect, I am all about shopping for budget-friendly buys to pimp out our new pad. Yas! Here are 10 of my favourite things that Matalan are stocking at the moment. I dare you to not click add to basket.
We’ve had a snippet of summer recently and it’s got me very excited for some sunshine as I’m sure it has for you guys too. Summer means barbecues, cute white tops, making a bee line for the beer garden after work and of course, upgrading your sunglasses collection. I headed down to Loxley for a lovely bloggers event last week to check out their new sunglasses launch, catch up with some lovely people and meet some new blogger babes too.
What’s your perfect Saturday? Mine is definitely something food and fun based and that’s exactly what the recent Bumble event organised by the gorge Jess was all about. A bunch of us blogger babes headed to Oscar & Rosie’s in Nottingham to create our own pizzas, learn how to chuck the dough about and basically have the best time ever.
For a while, it looked as though spring had finally arrived, following a ridiculously long winter. But, then it went back into hiding, and the grey skies and rain returned. This has left a lot of us feeling a little miserable or even depressed. Many people suffer from seasonal depression as a lack of sunlight and warmth affects their mood and their desire to go outdoors and this extended period of poor weather can start to get to all of us. So, whether you suffer from seasonal affective disorder or you’ve just had enough, it’s important that you find ways to beat the bad weather blues.
