The Muse by Jessie Burton | Book Review 2017


'Not all of us receive the ends that we deserve. Many moments that change a life's course - a conversation with a stranger on a ship, for example - are pure luck. And yet no one writes you a letter, or chooses you as their confessor, without good reason. This is what she taught me: you have to be ready in order to be lucky. You have to put your pieces into play'.

Monsoon Floral Freida // Outfit of the Day


Floral Frieda // Do you ever come across a piece of clothing that you just feel was designed specifically for you? I spotted this floral mix dress in the Monsoon sale last week and nearly gave out a little scream - I just loved it that much! Everything from the pattern, to the length, to the subtle bell sleeves, to the comfy stretch material - this dress just had my name written all over it. It's actually so rare for me to go into town these days and wander through the shops searching for bargains - you'll know I'm such an eBay / Charity shop kind-of-gal... but after shopping in town that day, I actually came home with eight (yes, 8!) new dresses, haha! It's true, a girl can never have too many...

Vero Moda Dress // Outfit of the Day


Vero Moda Dress // Hello loves, hope you had a great week. I was searching through my wardrobe one day last week and came across this navy blue dress from Vero Moda. It's the only piece of clothing that I own from the brand, and I remember it was a very spontaneous purchase during the ASOS sale a couple of years ago... I'm really happy to have rediscovered it this week - it's shocking but it's been one of those items that just sits in the wardrobe, still with its original tags. I've no idea why I haven't worn it because it's gorgeous - and yes, it also needs a very good iron - apologies in advance...!

The Handmaids Tale by Margaret Atwood | Book Review 2017


'The Republic of Gilead offers Offred only one option: to breed. If she deviates, she will, like all dissenters, be hanged at the wall or sent out to die slowly of radiation sickness. But even a repressive state cannot obliterate desire - neither Offred's nor that of the two men on which her future hangs'.

Broderie Anglaise Dress // Outfit of the Day


Broderie Anglaise // hello loves, hope you've had a great week. I've spent the last few days staring out the window at the grey Scottish rain, dreaming of the warm, hot sun of central Europe... I came across these pictures on my phone, taken last month on a rare day of sunshine... I had completely forgotten to post them earlier, and it made me feel depressed about the weather - yet again! I wish I could wear simple, summer dresses all year round, and not have to worry about thick tights and carrying an umbrella with me everywhere I go...

The Girls by Emma Cline | Book Review 2017


"I looked up because of the laughter, and kept looking because of the girls. I noticed their hair first, long and uncombed. Then their jewellery catching the sun. The three of them were far enough away that I saw only the periphery of their features, but it didn't matter - I knew they were different from everyone else in the park..."
