2018 ~ My Year Of Living Stylishly

You might be looking at these photos in this post and be like babe, you are not achieving this. And to you I reply, jog on. Fashion and styling has been one of my biggest passions for years. I would play dress up – from my dressing up box to my mother’s closet. To fashion shows after a shopping trip for my parents to sharing my style with my friends on shopping trips.

When I discovered blogging back in mid 2014 when I stumbled across the queen that is Hannah Gale, I found a whole new way to consume fashion. I didn’t need to flick through Vogue absentmindedly anymore, not caring about high end fashion so far out of my reach I couldn’t even see it. I could see personal style and fashion that I related to on my computer screen. And it was amazing.  View Full Post

Writer’s Block Sucks – & This Is How I Deal With It

Writer’s block can be really shit – especially when your ultimate escape route is writing. My blog is easily one of the most enjoyable things in my life – it is definitely one of the things I care about the most. The complete and utter freedom of having total control of the content, the vision and the future is something I thrive of and somewhere I go to to escape. Having the words unable to come is my idea of a literal hell.

I had about three posts to write for the next couple of weeks. With an essay deadline prancing around my shoulder and another hangover day (swear I’m not an alcoholic, just a student who has partied too much recently), it was the perfect day to smash out some blog posts.

A Birthday Wish List

The time has come, I’m about to turn another year older. I’m finally saying goodbye to my teenage years and entering the next decade of my life ~ what the actual flippity, flipping hell. I though I’d whip together a wish list of all the things I kinda fancy for my birthday and might treat myself too because it’s my birthday.

It gives me an excuse to trawl the likes of ASOS, Urban Outfitters and Etsy for all the pretty things because I’m a bit of a magpie and like shiny things. Urban Outfitters is probably my favourite shop right now for everything ~ fashion, accessories and interiors and everything in that store sings to me.

33 Things To Add To Your Basket In 2018

2018 would be the year I am more daring with my personal style, if I had more money. I am currently living on the tightest of tight budgets (well trying too, keep accidentally falling into Nando’s) so all of these dreamy things are planted firmly on my wish list.

As much as I love wrapping up in a huge coat accompanied by a cosy jumper, boots, scarves and hats (oh god hats, live for the hats), I’m excited to have a life without tights again and move onto sunnier styles. I’ve included a couple of borg jackets in this wish list as Chloe Plumstead made them look oh-so-dreamy on her blog and Instagram. But can we say a big fucking hello to the polka dot dress and the return of the bardot neckline, especially in that dreamy Topshop number?

My Favourite Beauty Bits Of 2017

Whilst I’m still quite appalling at make-up and in desperate need of a new mascara and foundation, I think I found my feet in the skincare world this year. My skin really played up in the summer due to stress and hormones which had a huge knock on effect to my already unstable confidence.

Which was a real bundle 0f laughs.

I’ve always prided myself on having ‘clear’ skin so having this comfort blanket taken away from me was pretty horrid and having a club of spots on my face was not helping.

So the point is: when my method of doing nothing failed me, I jumped in the other end and decided to treat myself to some new bits and sort myself out. I’ve had lots of fun checking out new brands from Your Good Skin to Glossier to Fudge and I’ve finally got a beauty routine that suits me down to a tee.
