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…

THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: TURNING 28 AND FEELING GREAT

I remember turning 23 and at the time thinking that was terrifyingly old, five years later and I’m practically a spinster! Joke! (My mum will tell me off for that one). Turning 28 is something I feel like I don’t want to say out loud, it feels like a whole heap of seriousness to me. The idea that I’m ever so nearly out of my twenties fills me with complete dread. I’m in panic mode. I should have got my life together by now, right? Wrong! I’m single, I’ve bunked back at home with my parents and frankly, I don’t know where the heck life is taking…

Here is an opening line you probably didn’t expect; I go on dates ALL the time.

Admitting to this in a recent conversation made me realise that dating isn’t just for those who fancy the pants off of each other. This all stemmed from an Instagram poll I saw believe it or not.

THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: SOCIAL SOCIETY HOME TRUTHS

A couple of months back I was heading back home on a train journey from London where disaster struck; my phone had died. Furiously searching for my portable battery pack, I discovered this had lost all juice too. Frankly, I was stuffed. In a society of digital hysteria, what on earth would I do for the next forty minutes of my journey? No emails, no Spotify and even more horrifying, no Instagram. Fuck! I actually started to feel a little uneasy. With seats full of people, eyes down, headphones on, I preceded to awkwardly stare out of the window in an attempt to feel less outta place…

THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: TATTOO Q&A

Post summer I’m always refreshed and reminded that I’ve got a load of ‘ink’ (I hate this word) slapped across my legs. I had my first tattoo at sixteen, a whole eleven years on you can imagine I barely clock them anymore, they’re very much part of the furniture. They’re big, bright and bold so I understand why they create a fair amount of attention, sadly not just from fellow tattoo admirers. So many times have I had the oh so original line of ‘oi, nice tatts babe’ shouted at me from across the street, usually from a dodgy building site on the corner. I always politely…
