Bargain Boots to see you through ’till Spring

I know Spring is coming and we should all be thinking of sandals, flip flops, mules etc, but this is England, and I still haven’t taken off my reliable winter boots. And to be honest, I’m getting a little sick of them. So I’ve been hunting the high-street for some more exciting but inexpensive boots to see me through until real spring (June perhaps?!) and … Continue reading Bargain Boots to see you through ’till Spring

November Style Staple – Seven of the Cosiest Blanket Scarves

As John Snow would say ‘Winter is here.’ The weather is chilly, the mulled wine is mulling and it’s finally time to get your snuggle on. God knows we’d all prefer to stay in our jammies drinking wine and watching netflix, but for those days where you simply have to leave the house for boring tasks, some snuggly outerwear is just the ticket. And my favourite … Continue reading November Style Staple – Seven of the Cosiest Blanket Scarves

Halloween inspired wardrobe wonders you’ll want to wear all year

Elaborate fancy dress and jaw-droppingly gruesome makeup? Nope. I like to do Halloween a little more half-assed-ly, because, to be honest, Halloween is always a bit of a non-event. So, spending loads of cash on a costume and sanity on trying to do hideous makeup? No thanks. However, halloween is the perfect excuse for a number of things. Themed chocolate ✓, making my skeleton gingerbread ✓, spending … Continue reading Halloween inspired wardrobe wonders you’ll want to wear all year

October’s Style Staple – Five Fedoras Under £30

I have a real love/hate affair with Fedoras. I love the look of them (mainly on Pinterest), I love the idea of them, I especially love them on other people, but I usually hate my head in them. Which is why I am not willing to make a huge investment into one. And more importantly when they fly off with every gust of wind (which they always do), you … Continue reading October’s Style Staple – Five Fedoras Under £30

Va-va-Velvet

Seasonal trends can be difficult to embrace. Gareth Pugh’s SS17 jazzy marble crocs, Alexander McQueen’s 2012 Armadillo shoes, everything from the Naughties… Velvet on the other hand, is a trend I’m only too happy to get behind… It’s so easy. No matter what your style and your budget, there are velvet updates for everyone. Bored of plain leather courts? Try the ahh-mazing Topshop velvet ones in … Continue reading Va-va-Velvet

September’s Style Staple: The Bomber

Ah September. The most emotionally confusing month of the year. It marks the end of summer, which obviously equates to the solemn end of surviving off a liquid diet of Rose, in some weird, godly, wine/water switcheroo. But it does bring some joys; coats, cashmere and comfort food, winter luxuries can finally be justified. The weather front, is, however, dubious. Indian summer to torrential rain … Continue reading September’s Style Staple: The Bomber

A Street Guide to Venice

I can honestly say that Venice is the most beautiful city I’ve ever seen. The people are lovely, the Prosecco is abundant, and I honestly can’t think of a better place to spend a few days, in a semi-drunk stupor, aimlessly wandering. So here’s a few of my favourite Venetian haunts and a few tips on travelling. Admittedly I’ve only stayed in one hotel in … Continue reading A Street Guide to Venice

The understated espadrille – the heroes of summer

As someone who is chronically too lazy to paint my toenails and with a mild phobia of feet, I am loathe to force them on any poor pedicurist. Thus summer sandals are not my friends, and peep toes? – positively enemies. This should make summer shoes a minefield, if it wasn’t for the gloriously understated espadrilles. Comfortable, toe-hiding, and undeniably summery, espadrilles are the understated … Continue reading The understated espadrille – the heroes of summer

The best £30 you’ll spend on beauty this year (or maybe ever)

Now, I might be late to the game (I often am), or I might be about to introduce you to a beauty secret that will change your life – or at least your look. Last weekend, I had a makeup lesson at my local MAC store. And despite my initial reservations – my natural ‘fight or flight’ instinct kicked in as soon as I was approached … Continue reading The best £30 you’ll spend on beauty this year (or maybe ever)

Shoes to put the Spring in your step!

No it doesn’t feel like it, but technically Spring really is here. Having said that, it doesn’t mean much, an hour less sleep, foreign-farmed daffodils and the dreaded “Easter weight” is the best we’re probably going to get. But we have to embrace it anyhow, and what better way than with some beautiful spring fashion (aka not black). Spring shoes are a tricky one, you really … Continue reading Shoes to put the Spring in your step!
