A mid-month catch up: September

Hello there one and all. This is the first in a new ‘regular’ post of sorts that I’m going to do – a monthly catch up, where I’m planning to just chat, diary style - the kind of everyday stuff that probably gets lost in other posts. It might be what I’m doing, what I’m… Continue reading A mid-month catch up: September

Missing: 1 x mojo, please return immediately if found

I’m not entirely sure what I’m going to write here, so bare with me while I offload a little. This will undoubtedly be somewhat self-indulgent - which most things I write are, I suppose – but feels needed all the same. This summer has been an odd one in several ways, and one of the… Continue reading Missing: 1 x mojo, please return immediately if found

A very important list of the reasons that jumpsuits are fantastic

This is a sponsored post. Look, this might be a really frivolous topic, but a little bit of frivolity never hurt anyone so we’re going to talk about it anyway. I think – and I don’t say this lightly – that the jumpsuit may be the best item of clothing I've ever been introduced to.… Continue reading A very important list of the reasons that jumpsuits are fantastic

A summer occasionwear lookbook

One of my absolute favourite things about summer is the potential for occasionwear to make an appearance; I don’t go to a lot of occasions, whatever occasions actually are, but this is the season that I’m most likely to have weddings, Christenings or other events that require the kind of ‘dressing up’ that isn’t an… Continue reading A summer occasionwear lookbook

A shocking confession: I almost never clothes shop online

The 'confession' I'm going to share today seems strange considering that 1) I spend a LOT of time on the internet, and 2) I post a shameful number of photos of myself loitering in the street to illustrate my outfits. Obviously I put it in the title (the clickbait was ridiculous with just the first… Continue reading A shocking confession: I almost never clothes shop online

SO sorry for the delayed response; will I ever get on top of life admin?

It was nearly 2am when I started this blog post, having intended to spend the entirety of the evening in question writing one. Not this one, actually, but another that I was yet to think of a subject for (so maybe this one? Who really knows) and never got around to doing. The reason? Admin.… Continue reading SO sorry for the delayed response; will I ever get on top of life admin?

Five things I want to make time for in the UK this summer

I think we can safely say that summer is officially here in the UK now – as safely as we ever can, in any case, which is probably not very safe at all, but my boobs are currently sunburnt and that’s what I’m basing my confidence in the matter on. In lieu of having any… Continue reading Five things I want to make time for in the UK this summer

Let’s catch up: what’s been happening (and what I’ve been wearing) in June

I’m writing this on a train, which is one of my favourite things about trains; you don’t have to be doing anything else because travelling from one place to another is the thing that you’re doing, so you can use the time to catch up on all the things that have fallen by the wayside… Continue reading Let’s catch up: what’s been happening (and what I’ve been wearing) in June

Will this be the year I shake off summer dressing dread? (Spoiler: no, but let’s talk about it anyway)

My first denim skirt wearing session of the year lasted a grand total of about 90 minutes and exposed parts of my legs that hadn’t been exposed in a while to the people of Norwich. I spent the whole of said 90 minutes excruciatingly aware of this fact, pulling the stupid thing down every few… Continue reading Will this be the year I shake off summer dressing dread?
