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

This is the cruelty-free and vegan sun care I’ve been using this year

It was hot in the UK this summer guys. I mean not right now – it’s actually about to rain – but it was hot, and we all lost our collective minds for a while because we’re not used to it and we don’t know how to handle anything above 15 degrees. One very important… Continue reading This is the cruelty-free and vegan sun care I’ve been using this year

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

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?

An everyday hair styling routine for loose, lived in curls

...aka how I try to give the illusion of having an Instagram-worthy mane on the regs despite actually having pretty rubbish hair. I’m writing this because a couple of people requested it over on Instagram – I know, I know, I almost don’t believe it either, considering I spend alternate days looking like Hagrid (wild,… Continue reading An everyday hair styling routine for loose, lived in curls

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?

28 things that, at the age of 28, I am still yet to master

For anyone who doesn’t follow me on Instagram and therefore didn’t have the pleasure of seeing me make a big song and dance about it, it was my birthday at the weekend. I turned 28. This is the blog post that would have gone up on my birthday/the day after if I wasn't too busy… Continue reading 28 things that, at the age of 28, I am still yet to master

Look at my fucking yellow trousers, and other things about wearing bright colours

I’m sorry for the swear in the title, but not that sorry because you can blame the creator of the look at my fucking red trousers blog, which I always found to be tremendously amusing browsing material and couldn't help but reference. These aren’t red trousers, obviously, but they are very yellow. Fucking yellow, you… Continue reading Look at my fucking yellow trousers, and other things about wearing bright colours

On finally learning to enjoy learning

I haven't really enjoyed the process of learning for years. The book character that I was probably most compared to as a child was - classic noughties cliché alert - Hermione Granger. Not for having bushy hair (it’s always been fine and flat) or for being badass (I was a hopelessly wimpy), but for being… Continue reading On finally learning to enjoy learning
