Boho Grunge Dress // Outfit of the Day


Boho Grunge Dress // Hello lovelies, hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far. The weather has been glorious over the last few days and I’m really hoping that means we’ve put the bad ‘Beast from the East’ behind us – Summer is finally on it’s way (I bet I’ve gone and jinxed that now and we’ll be back to -2 degrees next week…). I love it when the sun shines and we get into the warmer months though – it’s time to pack the thermals away and get back into my summer dresses. This floral number has been in my wardrobe for about five years and it’s always a good one to throw on – I’m amazed it still fits actually…

Purple Dress of Dreams // Outfit of the Day


Purple Dress of Dreams // okay, okay, okay, I need to breathe. I know I say this about every dress I own, but seriously, this may be my new all time favourite. I love everything about this dress: the colour; the lace design; the stretch fabric; the sheer sleeves; the scallop edge neckline; the length; and did I mention the gorgeous colour?! It's so lovely it deserves a double mention. Oh, and before I forget, the price tag was also amazing - £4 from eBay. Yes, £4!!! Another reason why I just love searching online for hidden gems like this one.

Lucerne Travel Diary // Switzerland 2018


Lucerne Switzerland Travel Diary // Over the last six months, I've been fortunate enough to travel to Lucerne, a small town in northern Switzerland, three times. In one word, it is idyllic. I've been travelling there for work and although I have not been able to be a 'proper' tourist outside of my working hours, I've still managed to explore the beautiful, historic town. I wanted to share some snapshots with you all and show off the beauty of this hidden treasure.

Floral Polka Dot Dress // Outfit of the Day


Floral Polka Dot Dress // Morning lovelies, how are you all doing today? I'm particularly happy this Sunday, as I picked up this new dress from my local charity shop. It's by the brand Cameo Rose? I'm sure I've seen it before, maybe in the Topshop concession area? Anyways, it's a lovely wee dress (not so different from the outfit I posted last week) but you know me, absolute sucker for any kind of floral tea dress. I was particularly drawn to the bow tie sleeves - it's a really small detail which actually helps to make the dress quite unique.

Regeneration by Pat Barker // Book Review 2018


"I am making this statement as an act of wilful defiance of military authority, because I believe the war is being deliberately prolonged by those who have the power to end it.

My Life In Pictures // Instagram


My Life in Pictures // Hello loves, how are you doing? It's been a while since I've shared some Instagram snaps with you all. Even if I go a little quiet on here, you can guarantee I've probably posted on my Instagram account, it's funny that isn't it? Anyways, here's a combination of some yummy treats, pretty flowers and some fabulous home bakes. Also, can you tell that I like coffee?...

The Pursuit of Love by Nancy Mitford // Book Review 2018


"There is a photograph in existence of Aunt Sadie and her six children sitting round the tea-table at Alconleigh. The table is situated, as it was, is now, and ever shall be, in the hall, in front of a huge open fire of logs. Over the chimney-piece plainly visible in the photograph hangs an entrenching tool, with which, in 1915, Uncle Matthew had whacked to death eight Germans one by one as they crawled out of a dug-out. It is still covered with blood and hairs, an object of fascination to us as children."

Hippie Floral Dress // Outfit of the Day


Hippie Floral Dress // Hello lovelies, happy Sunday! I hope you've had a great weekend so far. Well, here I am again sharing yet another floral dress (shock), but you guys know me, I'm always happy to add a new piece to my wardrobe. This dress was quite a nice find, it cost me £3 on eBay and it's originally from Primark. When it arrived, I was initially unsure as it was much longer than it had looked online, but I'm actually loving the length - I don't really own that many midi length dresses and the inner hippie in me was dancing about when I tried it on for the first time - any piece of clothing that makes me feel like Stevie Nicks is a winner in my eyes...

The Nest by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney | Book Review 2018


"Because the three Plumbs had agreed on the phone the previous evening that they should not drink in front of their brother Leo, they were all - unbeknownst to one another - sitting in separate bars in and around Grand Central, savouring a furtive cocktail before lunch".

Black Floral Top // Outfit of the Day


Black Floral Top // Hello lovelies, hope you are all well and surviving the bitter Beast From The East. It's been incredibly atmospheric here in the North East and it's making me feel as though I should be getting the Christmas decorations back out and cranking the Christmas music to high. But instead, it's actually March and we should be getting excited for Mother's Day and Easter and warmer days ahead... please weather, make your mind up!

H&M Floral Top // Outfit of the Day


H&M Floral Top // Hello lovelies, hope you are all doing well! I am finally back with an outfit post, after what feels like years! I didn’t manage to take that many pictures over the Christmas period, as I was just so busy with work, and the freezing cold weather certainly didn’t help! It's now February and the weather is still pretty cold to stand outside and take pictures, but I will try and organise a few shoots soon. If you look closely, you may notice that I am standing in front of a Christmas wreath - we actually took these pictures back in December and I've only managed to get round to posting them now - oops! :-)

Valentines Day Gift Inspiration for that Special Someone



Hello loves, hope you are all doing great. It’s been an incredibly busy start to the new year and I can’t quite believe it’s already turned February. All the Christmas and New Year celebrations (and lingering hangovers…) are well and truly out the way and I always look forward to celebrating other exciting holidays that are coming up. Let’s be honest, February is known for one thing, and one thing only: Valentines Day. Love it or Loath it, it’s hard to escape it and whilst some people do hate the commercialisation of the holiday, I actually think it’s a lovely idea to tell the ones you love how much they mean to you (I mean, I know we really should do this all year round but Valentines is always a nice reminder …) and what better way to do that, than with a brand new luxury watch.

Birthday Gift Inspiration


Birthday Inspiration // Hello lovelies, I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and new year. Can you believe it’s already 2018? I have no idea where the time is going! I have finally emerged from my festive food coma and I'm ready to face the new year head on! It’s always a little daunting though, because for me, January is such a busy month. I’ve always got a lot of marking/ work to catch up on AND it’s also the major birthday month in my family. Not one, not two, not even three but SIX members of my family have their birthdays in January, and let me tell you, it’s a nightmare. Just when I thought all of my Christmas/ December shopping was done and dusted… Oh no, that's right... I need to head back out into the crazy town centre and battle my way through keen shoppers to find some bargains and birthday presents...
