Inspiration is a huge thing to me. But, there are so many things that people demonise these days like Instagram, the internet and hashtags like #inspo because they’re bad for people’s self confidence. I totally agree that it goes too far sometimes but I think that Instagram and Pinterest especially can be amazing for motivation and inspiration for yourself!
Holiday season is well and truly here and everyone’s heading away to catch some rays! I’m off to Crete soon and I can’t wait for some relaxation, feta cheese and seriously pretty sunsets. The only thing that can be a little tricky in our vacay situations is trying to fit everything you own into a teeny, tiny suitcase!
Old Skool Vans are some of my most-worn kicks. They’re so comfy, they go with almost any outfit and they last forever. I’ve got a pair of the classic all black with the white stripe and they’re just my go-to trainers for everyday style. Here are 7 different ways how to rock my fave sneaks fresh from my Style Inspiration Pinterest board.
When I say ‘free’ weekend I mean those super rare ones where you have absolutely zero plans! I had one last weekend for the first time in about 6 weeks. We’ve been up and down the country, zipping to various appointments, seeing friends and family and having city breaks. Check out my favourite place for coffee in Leeds and where we stayed if you’re interested. I love being busy but it almost becomes a novelty when you have a weekend that you can do anything that you want with. Here are 7 things that I like to do when I have all the time in the world.
We live in a society where people are always telling you to grab life by the balls, carpe diem, push yourself out of your comfort zone and live a little! Basically, the pressure to say yes to things is huge because if you’re a ‘no person’ you can be seem as boring, negative and essentially not a good enough person.
My summer holiday countdown is on! With only a few weeks to go I’m already planning my capsule wardrobe for the 9-10 days that I’m away for. One thing that I’ve been on the lookout for a while is the perfect straw beach bag. I’m after something cute, a bit funky and with a lot of room so it’s a great size for me to take on the plane as my hand luggage!
For a modern home in particular, bathroom vanity cabinets are a near essential purchase! They provide us with a stylish decorative fixture and great storage solution all in one. With plenty of attractive space-saving designs on the market, there’s a lot to consider before deciding on the best style of unit for your bathroom. If you’re looking to really maximise space, however, one option clearly stands out in the form of a corner bathroom vanity – especially perfect for a small bathroom or en-suite.
Ok, ok, maybe a bit click bait-y but it’s totally true. Leeds is the only city I’ve been to on a city break that I could see myself living in. We’ve been to Amsterdam, Dublin, Barcelona (up there!), Manchester, London and loads more in the few years that we’ve been together and Leeds was definitely my favourite city break.
Located just around the corner from Trinity Leeds Mrs Atha’s is the absolute perfect place to cosy up with a coffee in the winter and hide from the rain or bask outside in the sunshine with an iced latte and a gorgeous cake in the summer time. Mrs Atha’s is an all year round, seriously cool, amazingly creative, mega tasty coffee shop smack bang in the centre of Leeds and you need to go there next time you’re in town.
There’s nothing wrong with being a basic sometimes when trends are this cute. I totally don’t care! You be as authentic and original as you like but I’m sticking here with these cutie-matootie trends that I can’t get enough of. From Pinterest style to that holiday Instagram prop, you name it, I’m on it.
