Disclaimer, before we get into this post. This is 100% a post that is only, and I mean it, only about a new sassy pair of sweatpants and a trip to Nando’s. So, if it’s a thought provoking, clickable, readable post that you’re after and you don’t want to hear about the new Nando’s pitta, leave now. I am chilling the hell out over Christmas and popping out the odd cute little post about what I’m up to and that’s about it. Of course I’m thinking about posts for the new year but I definitely don’t want to use all of my *incredible* ideas before January hits so, here’s a super simple insight into my life recently. It’s New Year’s Eve tomorrow and the last thing we all need is stress and opinions so, here’s a blog post about chicken and elasticated waistbands.
Green is literally everywhere at the moment! It seems to have crept up on us all like the red trend did and I’m loving it. I picked up this super cute floral blouse from Missguided that I showed off on Instagram the other week and I’m really embracing adding some more colour to my wardrobe. I’ve chosen 6 awesome pieces from ASOS that can fit in easily with your style. Just add a touch with accessories or go all out with a dress, just pick your shade!
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.
Summer hasn’t even really arrived yet, although it’s been really, really nice this week! But, it’s not too soon to be thinking about your autumnal wardrobe. Once the summer has passed dressing gets tricky. The summer stuff returns to the box under the bed and warmer alternatives are needed. Belted coats, dusky blues and vintage-inspired fur coats are all returning to our wardrobes this season.
Feelin’ in a style rut? Want to try something different but you’re not sure what to add to your wardrobe or what will push you out of your comfort zone? I’ve got three things that you can try to funky up your look a little bit! Obviously, you don’t have to do all three at once if you’re not comfortable with it but I’ve always been a lil’ bit crazy and over the top with my style so it works for me!
I posted one of the (awesome, thanks Anna) pics from this outfit on my Instagram this morning with a caption that was just exactly what I was thinking. What shall I write to go along with this outfit? I just felt like I didn’t have loads to say (for once, I know, parents evening flashback). Most of the time, I’ve got something to chat about, be it something great or the struggles of work, blogging, life, everything! But, this time I didn’t really know what to write.
It’s not often that I write favourites posts but every few months I find a few things that I find myself really liking and it’s always good to mix up the content on here! Here are 6 (mostly skincare and beauty but with a fashion fave) products that have been giving me life in December!

The rustic trend has been around for a while now and still continues to be as popular as ever. This is primarily due to its strong emphasis on recycling materials. Many homeowners like the idea that they are helping the environment by repurposing and recycling. Plus the unique qualities of old metal and wood add interest into their rooms, while often costing very little. So if you’re interested in creating a rustic vibe in your own home, don’t be tempted to buy everything from a store. Here are some fabulous home decor projects that can help you create a rustic theme almost instantly.
I’ve been looking for the perfect pom pom embellished sandals for weeks! I’ve seen so many gorgeous pairs on Instagram that have been serious designer styles for prices way out of my purse’s little range. Then, also on Instagram, I spotted these babies from Ego. I’ve never heard of them before (despite the fact they’ve got over 200k Instagram followers!) but they remind of Public Desire in the way that they’re super on trend and really affordable shoes. From heels to sandals they’ve got them all. They’re not amazing quality but they’re absolutely perfect for summer holidays. Prepare to see these all over my Instagram in the coming weeks!
