Must-Have: 70’s Tassel Skirt

After embracing every decade from the sixties to the nineties over the last few seasons, seventies style has finally arrived. It was the most prominent trend on the spring/summer 15 catwalks back in September and is now taking over our High Streets as denim, suede, fringing and flares become big …

Let’s Get Colourful

There’s no city like London, is there? Every corner has a story waiting to be told, a photo waiting to be captured and memories waiting to be made. It’s easy to see why so many people say they fall in love here and never want to leave. Having grown up …

5 Beauty Products I Discovered in 2014 – And Now Can’t Live Without

Can you believe we’re almost 2 months into 2015 already? I can’t quite get my head round it. It seems I still haven’t quite adjusted to the fact it’s no longer 2014 as I continue to get the date wrong about 50% of the time. Anyone else? In many ways, …

Valentine’s Presents For Your BFF

Whether you love it or loathe it, Valentine’s Day is going to happen in just a few days. Fortunately, the days of tacky gifts are (mostly) over, meaning the shops are currently filled with pretty presents that would actually be nice to receive. I’ve always preferred to celebrate the big …

Feel-Good Friday: The Perfect Gym Outfit

Now January’s been and gone, it’s much easier to believe summer will actually arrive one day. Thinking about how long that leaves to get the bikini body ready, that day suddenly doesn’t seem too far away at all.

A Lazy Lunch Outfit

On Sunday afternoon, Jess and I were interviewed for the Q & Eats series on Fashion Worked. One of the questions (spoiler alert!) was about whether we prefer to dress up or dress down, and it basically summed up my constant inner struggle at the moment.

L’Occitane One Minute Hand Scrub

January’s a pretty difficult month, isn’t it? It brings us the worst weather, the most depressing day of the year and… dry, dry skin.

Musings | Defining Success

Over the past few weeks, I’ve read a lot of blog posts on goal-setting. I know that’s because it’s January and a natural time new beginnings, but it really got me thinking.

Winter Uniform: Roll-necks and Monk Straps

How happy are you to think that it’s nearly Spring? Seeing the clock tick on and the day still cling on to its daylight a little later each day sure puts me in a good mood.

The Changing Room Test

Ah, changing rooms. A place where dreams can come true but, more often than not, self-esteem is completely crushed instead. The unflattering lights, tight space and feeling that nothing from the heap of clothes next to you looks good creates the perfect breeding ground for insecurity and before you know it you’re having a …
