THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: LIVING WITH YOUR PARENTS

‘Um, I live with my parents’ I say softly (so unlike me) with my head down, feeling myself cringe as I tell the guy I really fancy that I currently reside with the mothership. Luckily for me, a ‘me too’ response makes me feel less like a 28yr old big human baby. So there, I said it. I live at home. The truth of the matter is, so many people (older and younger) I know still do live at home. There’s nothing abnormal about it. In the society that we live in, we all know too well how difficult it is to own your own home and…

THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: THE CAMERMEN (WOMEN) BEHIND THE BLOG

It’s fair to say that my blog, and my Instagram, wouldn’t be much without a little helping hand. A lot of the credit should really go the lovely ladies that help me shoot; night, day and more often than not, in the pissing rain. There is so much more to it all than simply taking a photo. Long gone are the similarities to say a quick family snap; out of focus, slightly blurred, wonky and worst of all, closed eyes. That just wouldn’t do, and it certainly wouldn’t make a spot on the ‘gram. A style shoot is complex to say the least. The outfit, the location,…

THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: HOTSPOT BLOGGING, A CATCH-UP & A GIVEAWAY

one.two.three.four.fucking.walls. As most of you have gathered through various blog posts and social media, I have moved back to the family home, all in favour of having a little extra cash in the back pocket. As much as this has faired an all round great decision, it does come with a few niggles. One of them being the lack of space to freely blog, which I say in the kindest of ways. I’ve got the box room – fine. It’s quaint, cosy and great for formalities such as sleeping and most importantly, kicking back and binging on Netflix (I’ve joined the Peaky Blinders hype and by that,…

THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: THE INTERNET ‘ME’ vs THE REAL ME

We all know that what we share on the internet is a rose-tinted, perfectly polished version of ourselves and our lives. Reality being, no-one wants to see a Friday night me, two glasses of wine down, sprawled on the sofa watching Gogglebox, all with a dollop of tikka masala takeaway splattered down my pj top. At the same time, it’s the version of me that is probably the most relatable, even if nobody wants to admit it, let alone show it. I regularly make light of my life in the office at work, poking jokes at myself on how dreadful my bank account looks, how I am…

THE STYLE EDITION: WHY 2017 TRENDS ARE FAST BECOMING UNATTAINABLE

The fear of being labelled as a style blogger for me (although admittedly self-titled) is the expectation that comes with that title, the hope that my wardrobe is bursting with brand new, totally trendy, 90% designer threads. Let me tell you something up front, if that is the idealistic wardrobe for a twenty something female, I welcome you to a world of disappointment. This for me is completely unrealistic and I’m sure for some, very much unattainable. I cannot and will not bankrupt myself just to earn my cool girl Instagram stripes. I have always been a lover of affordable style. I think this stems from my…
