Fashion fads and why I hate them

I’ve had a problem with faddy fashion trends from a young age. The way that something ‘trendy’ can flood high street stores and then within a few months it’s almost cringe to wear that one thing again. That thing you thought was really awesome and now it’s sat gathering dust because it’s ‘so last year’. I understand fashion is fast and that’s apart of the fun, but not when my beloved disco pants look better on e-bay. It…

My Goals for 2018

I’m currently writing this while in Spain (on new years eve) visiting my mum who recently immigrated here. I feel so grateful to have spent Christmas and these last few days in the sunshine with my family, that I can’t even remember what day it is. As I’ve been feeling so content with my life, I almost forgot about setting…

Budapest in December – Christmas Break

One gloomy, September morning, Jack text me whilst at work asking if I fancied a trip to Germany in December to visit the Christmas markets. With the thought of winter drawing in I jumped at the idea and booked the needed four days off work. He said we’d be going with friends of friends and would arrange the whole trip for us – what more could a girl want! Come the…

DIY : Furniture Makeover (Upcycling my Chest of Drawers)

When I moved out of my mums house she gave me this little chest of drawers which she bought years ago from a carboot sale. Featured in my ‘Buying home wear on a budget’ post. The drawers were originally a dark brown wood which Mum decoupaged with pink and gold patterned paper that you can buy from Hobbycraft by clicking…

November Bargain Buys: Fashion

Since re-birthing my blog I haven’t posted anything related to fashion or buying clothes. I think I tried fooling myself by writing in my last post that clothes are not a big part of my life any more… which is a big fat, silly lie. As I work full time in an ‘casual dress’ office, 5 days out of 7 I wear leggings with a…

The Girl behind the Blog

I’ve decided to write this post to give my readers a better sense of who I am. My favourite thing about reading blogs is feeling that sense of connection with the writer. Being able to get to know them on a personal level. Whether that be in the way they dress themselves, their aspirations or their past life experiences. So my name…

Buying homeware on a budget

My home style will of course not be to everyone’s taste, but I wanted to write this post to prove that you can decorate on a budget and still be stylish! Renting a non furnished home meant Jack and I had to buy everything that we needed when we moved to Bristol. This really opened my eyes to how much money I might have to spend… or in…

DIY : Queen of the Dead Sea (Halloween Mermaid)

I am absolutely crazy about Halloween. I love fancy dress and anything a little scary so this is my time to shine when it comes to being creative. My first choice for a costume this year was to go as mermaid. A little over done I know but I couldn’t shake the idea! On the sly I spent 4 days at work doing some cheeky Pinterest research looking…

Moving from Oxford to Bristol

So in March of this year, Meow, my boyfriend Jack and I made the ever so exciting move from Oxford to Bristol. Our main reason was that we longed for a more exciting life outside of work hours. With a small bit of persuasion we knew Bristol was the place to be. Don’t get me wrong, Oxford is a beautiful city…

My born again blog

  So, where do I start…. I’m back with a brand new blog! To elaborate more on ‘I’m back’, I previously blogged between the years of 2010 to 2013 alongside studying fashion graphics at university, (stopped for a short while, like everyone else to find myself) then carried on with dribs and drabs of half assed posts to summer 2016 when I decided to call it a day. A lot…
