We all have borg starrey eyes recently and it's everywhere. I picked up a new hoodie not long ago, which has now gone viral in various colours, but I couldn't resist getting my hands on this oversized jacket in the same material too. I know it's not exactly season appropriate as we welcome Spring, but lets be honest, it's still freezing and all I care about is comfort.
I can't quite express to you guys how much my new mattress has changed my life... for the better. When I moved into my new place a few months ago, Drift kindly contacted me to work together and try out their affordable, luxury pocket spring roll up mattress. I had never deemed a mattress as the ultimate life-long investment piece before, but I've always known they were something worth spending money on. As humans we spend an average of 229,961 hours in bed.. which is a third of our life!!!
At the same time they contacted me, I had just purchased a new double bed and was in search for the perfect mattress. I was looking for one which gave great support to my back and posture but also was super comfy and soft. I wasn't sure whether such mattress even existed. There timing couldn't have been more perfect..
I'm back with a new blog post and a more focused mind set. I am definitely felt more sure of the direction I want my blog to go in these past few months and especially in the content I want to create. I write this now whilst sat in the bath, as it has been a long day. I'm relaxed, I have candles lit and I'm trying to get back to what I used to love.. stripped back.. the bare basics.. (hmmm I'm not sure if these choices of words are entirely appropriate with me being in the bath, but hey we'll roll with it)
For those who have me on Instagram... you will have seen me feature this amazing berry coloured suit from Unique 21. Normally I would go for a black coloured suit, something very understated like myself but I'm loving deep red colours at the minute and this seemed the perfect thing to spice up my wardrobe this Autumn.
All thanks to LullaBellz I now have a beautiful luscious head of hair again, I have recently been taken off the contraceptive pill for certain health tests and with being on it for so many years of my adult life, I was unaware of such devastating side effects it would have on me mentally and physically. The past few months have been extremely hard, but now thanks to LullaBellz I feel confident again and much happier I am on the mend..
I have gone and found the 'black co-ord' of dreams from Missy Empire. This Gold Piping co-ord is super comfy, it's flattering and a perfect staple for this time of year. I'm also really looking forward to being able to style both the jacket and trousers separately. It comes with a very delicate tie for around the waist which is a nice touch, but you can wear this both with and without.
Instagram, the app that seems to run the world these days. I often see people create 'help' posts and I personally really enjoy reading them, so I thought it would be a good idea to share some of my own advice with you on tackling the world of Insta.
For those of you who are wanting to turn it into more of a business venture? Perhaps you are a blogger and struggling to get the recognition you deserve? or perhaps you are just wanting some handy tips on how to make it more aesthetically pleasing? then this post is for you..
I'd love to be able to tell you that the style, colour or layout of your Instagram doesn't matter all that much, but unfortunately it does and you have to have a Masters in 'Fine Instagram Arts' to combat it sometimes. I have spent far too long perfecting my layout and only now after years of practice and identity searching am I 99.9% happy with it. As many bloggers will tell you, we are never fully satisfied with our feeds, but I promise you.. seeking for perfection is a constant disappointment.
I am totally in love with this outfit.. I have been wanting the perfect denim dress for some time now. This denim maxi is from an online store called 'Liquorish'. Their clothes are to die for and I had to get my hands on this very special piece with the heavy silver zip detail on the front. The fit is perfect and it is so well made...
Still loving monochrome.. and even though I did a very similar look to this one last year, I have my flared pants and basic tee's back out to enjoy this beautiful weather. I have also been living in my fur sliders this Summer and they are the most lazy fashionable accessory I own. Whenever I struggle for what footwear to match up with an outfit, these have been my go-tos.
Finally got a little holiday post up for you guys.. I'm not going to blab on too much as the pictures pretty much speak for themselves. I really grew to love Marrakech and all it had to offer, I was lucky enough to go for a week over my birthday and taste real Moroccan cuisine, experience the souks, relax in the blistering heat, meet such amazing people and take a tour to the Yves Saint Lauren Gardens.
