Mission Prom

On Friday my little sister had her year 11 prom. Nina’s not the most fashionable soul god bless her, she has asked atleast 20 times in the last few months if she can go to prom in her pyjamas. Getting her prom ready has not been an easy task. But all joking aside, Nina’s not…

A magical festival holiday.

  So last week I got back from the holiday of dreams and I wanted to tell you guys all about it. I went to Bilbao for a week with some fabulous friends and my wonderful boyfriend. Our primary reason for going was to attend the local festival BBK. But firstly we had a couple…

The Fear

Today I’ve been a little sap. I think we all have those days of 0 motivation and feeling like a slug. I normally rely on James to give me a little boost and chirp me up, but the selfish bastards having an amazing time at Glastonbury and only turns his phone on once a day…

Becoming Aunt Flo

This year has been big for so many reasons. But right up there has got to be becoming the inappropriately named Aunt Flo. Unlike thousands of women out there who associate these words with anger, excessive chocolate eating and crippling cramps. I associate it with joy, pride and love. My nephew Kit is the most…

Not feeling so fabulous….

Hi everyone, Feels like a while since I’ve written a blog. I’ve been crazy busy slaving over my dissertation all about body image, I’ll share a blog with you on this after I’ve finished! So lately, probably because I’ve been working a lot and feeling incredibly stressed, I’ve been having a terrible time with my anxiety….

Patch and pin your way to denim perfection

Denim Embellishment is everywhere at the moment and as mentioned in my last blog it’s a really fun way to spruce up your old wardrobe and resist succumbing to fast fashion.  I’m in the middle of building my unique vintage pin’d and patched denim jacket and I can’t express the excitement of getting a new…

How to be more ethical. The opinions of an unqualified woman

As humans we’re a peculiar bunch. We so easily sit back and ignore such glaring injustices. Don’t worry this isn’t a preachy blog, I’m the absolute worst! I’m fully aware of how horrific the meat industry is but still I needed that last twisted pepperoni dough ball before taking the veggie plunge. I constantly hear…

Sisters, am I riiiight?

I’ve been thinking a lot lately of the sort of woman I want to be. I’m nearly 22 and I think I might be starting to grow up. It’s terrifying. I figure the best thing to do is take example from those around me. My own Mum’s a good place to start, a mother of…

When hard work doesn’t pay off….

Yesterday I got my first marks back for final year. I was excited, I’d really got this assignment. I’d worked hard, found super relevant theories and dare I say it maybe even kind of…enjoyed it! I scrolled through the excel sheet of student ID’s  waiting to find the string of numbers that had become my…

How a haircut has ruined my life….

It was a glorious Wednesday morning and I was excited to chop my shoulder length locks and feel renewed. I was going in for a choppier textured bob and a new fringe. About 2 inches off, nothing too dramatic. As I explained this look the hairdresser said, kind of like Caroline Flacks?! YES exactly. She’d…

Amy Schumer AKA Wonderwoman

Hey guys! I’ve been feeling a bit rubbish the last few days so spent them in bed going on Youtube journeys (the BEST way to feel better!) While doing this I’ve been introduced to the best woman in existence, Amy Schumer. Amy’s an amazing comic. I guess she’s made an impression on me because she’s…

A-line Fever

Hey guys, Today I want to talk about summer trends, in particular the A-line skirt. An A-line skirt it pretty self explanatory- it looks like an A! Tight on the waist flaring out in a rigid style, usually stopping well above the knees. I’m sure, like me. you’ll have been seeing it EVERYWHERE. It’s such…
