Bedroom updates + win £50 to spend at JUNIQE

I’ve always loved prints and, posters and sticking things up on my walls. From Kerrang! magazine posters to quirky prints from Urban Outfitters and IKEA now, I just love how they can change a room’s look and feel. I even painted Alexisonfire lyrics on my walls when I was 13, (sorry Mum), but I just love a bit of art, don’t I? On this note, we finally got around to doing something with our bedroom and giving it the same TLC that we’ve given the (only other) room in our flat, the kitchen/diner.

5 things on my September wish list

As if it’s September? It’s basically autumn and summer is well and truly behind us. Well, I hope the weather realises so anyway because I always get so confused this time of year about what to wear. The day will start out freezing and you’ll be sweating by lunchtime. Nightmare. Anyway, seeing as it’s a whole new month I thought I’d share some items I’m lusting over for the new season.

How to navigate British summer in style

On a rare sunny Sunday I shot a few snaps with some new buys and I thought that this is typical British summer. It was about 19-ish degrees and sunny at random intervals. When I think British summer, this is it. Not those freak heatwaves we have for about a week and then it rains for two. This is British summer and how to style it can be tricky!

How to style a lob; the easy wave

Curls, waves and beachiness look so great on shorter hair. Long gone are the days when short hair meant that you couldn’t style it any other way than straight. Celebs like Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Alba and even Chezza back in the day have all rocked the long curly lob and it’s still super cute in 2017. I love this look and at the moment, I’m not a fan of my hair straight because I’m growing my fringe out and it just stands out too much. I’ve been trying a new tool to help me get this look and I’ve got a little review for you.

Paul’s Boutique Fleur Clutch Bag

When I say to you, Paul’s Boutique, there’s probably a few images that come to mind. For me it’s definitely the bag I had about 6 years ago, black and covered in crazy neon patches. I know, I haven’t always been a fashion blogger, k?

Well, that image is well and truly a thing of the past as they’ve had an amazing rebrand into a much more stylish and on trend brand. They kindly let me review one of their really popular bags, the Fleur Reversible Clutch Bag. This one is bright pink on the outside and on the inside it’s a lovely dark purple, kind of an aubergine colour which is perfect for the autumn/winter seasons. The pink, on the other hand is fab all year round and is amazing for adding a pop of colour into any outfit. Here, I’ve styled it with more colour as I think the bright blue and the bright pink look really good next to each other. This is a really casual look but I think this bag is so versatile that it can be a great day clutch (it’s big enough too!) and a really good night out bag too. It comes with a little hand strap too so dancing without worrying about your handbag is easy as pie.

Baking a Battenburg!

The summer holidays will always mean moments of boredom for small people. It was our lovely Abby’s (our Nanny, we call her Abby as it’s short for the Spanish for grandma… long story short) birthday yesterday and she’s coming to stay tonight. We thought we’d make her a cake and it killed two birds as it kept little G occupied for an afternoon.
