year abroad :: short but sweet

Finally!!! I have time for a blog post. So I’ve officially been in France three weeks as of tonight. I can’t believe three weeks ago I was on a plane to Bergerac. I genuinely never expected to feel quite as home as this. Of course, it’s not simple. Every day there is something new I […]

Beauty was always a side-line to my love of fashion until I undertook the role of Fashion & Beauty Editor of SCAN. It opened my eyes to talking about something just as, if not even more, artistic than fashion.  Ever since I was little, I always loved doing my eyeshadow and that still continues to […]

fashion :: ice queen

I woke on Wednesday morning to this view: Frosty to say the least.   While on the annual Boxing Day sale shop, which was very disappointing might I add, I came across a variety of t-shirt style dresses in Topshop. I’m not usually one for basic pieces, as you’d know if you ever opened up […]

life :: 2016, a year in review 

Rather focusing on all the negatives 2016 brought me (although let’s be honest it’s the way we act, and not the numbers themselves), I thought I’d re-digest the good parts and the happy parts, and look forward to the next year ahead. So, if you’re interested, brew a tea n cuddle a pillow and have a […]

Particularly motivational quotes. I get that obsessed reading words of truth that I both pin them and […]

fashion :: dazzled in effort

After reading “Can we talk about…Gucci”, I feel as if I have connected with Claudia Winkleman on a level I never would have expected. I want to be that “44 year old…” who writes like that about a designer brand.  Maybe it’s merely the wannabe journalist, the over-analytical, ex-English Language student in me, but ahhhhh. I […]

food :: pack horse

If you live anywhere near me, you may have heard of The Pack Horse, in Affetside. I absolutely adore this place. Everything about it is just spot on, and also, they do amazing cocktails. Just saying. Yesterday afternoon my mum text me “Shall we go out for tea?” And let’s face it, it would be […]

change

Hey so, After a long deliberation in which months have passed by, I have decided to change my blog over from Blogger to here, WordPress. I have countless articles and weighed up both the pros and cons. I am mainly doing this because I wanted my own .com; I can’t lie it makes me feel pretty […]
