You know what I love? Well, as well as Game of Thrones, cheesecake and fake tan? Discovering new clothing sites, ESPESH ones where all of the clothes are fully on-trend and as cheap as the proverbial chips. We all know about Boohoo, Pretty Little Thing et al, but a new site that has just popped up on my radar is Wearall.com. I was sent a few items from the brand recently, including this amazing denim two-piece, and it’s safe to say that I’ve found a new fave. View Full Post
Since I started this wee blog back in 2013, I’ve had some pretty nice opportunities and collaborations – makeup and clothes from some of my favourite brands have plopped through the letterbox over the years, and I’ve always been giddily grateful. But nothing quite got me in the feels and throwing my hands up at how #blessed I am than when I was contacted by the big dog: McDonalds. Ah, creator of my beloved McNuggets and the saviour of many a hungover morning. Of course I said yes when I was invited along to one of my local branches to find out what’s new for the brand (AND WEAR A HAT AND APRON). I mean, who wouldn’t?
We’ve been a little bit hashtag-blessed with the weather for a couple of weeks, but of course when you live in the UK you know not to get too hyped about a long, hot summer. The chances are that there are still plenty of wet weekends ahead of us, so I thought it was worth putting together a little guide to my favourite TV shows at the moment. View Full Post
When it comes to my skincare, I can be a bit all over the place. Sometimes I’m a total skincare boff and follow all the steps (even toner, say whuuut), preach to whoever will listen about the benefits of a double cleanse, and vow to spend all spare incoming money on whatever Kiehl’s or Origins products I’m lusting over. Then sometimes I get drunk and fall asleep in my makeup… ahh, I call it balance (others may call it disgusting). View Full Post
Yep it’s that time again – I’ve scoured the Primark New Arrivals section so you don’t have to. It’s good to see a lot of new summer stuff still coming in, because I for one am nowhere near done building my summer ‘drobe yet. I’m not off on holiday until September, so I’m still in the midst of my hunt for swimwear, beach cover ups and evening outfits (all a size smaller, as I’m obviously going to have lost a stone by then too, natch). I ignored the worrying selection of wooly hats that are appearing in stores this month – leave it out Primark – and picked my favourite pieces that you should be able to find in your local store.

Oh my gaaaaahd guys, I’m only doing a bloody outfit post! It’s been a while since I’ve showcased an #ootd on the blog, but I’m so keen to share this look with you all. I feel like it’s basically summer in the form of an outfit, and it’s got me feeling SO ready for barbecues, beer gardens and a frozen cocktail (or ten).

As the old saying goes, tan-liness is next to godliness (err, something like that anyway). As such, I’ve always taken my quest to find a good fake tan v. seriously indeed, and I’ve tried a lot of brands in my time. One that I’ve heard a lot of buzz about but hadn’t got round to trying myself yet was Skinny Tan, so when a bottle passed through work recently I seized the opportunity to try it out (along with one of the application mitts and an exfoliation mitt too – in for a penny etc).
It might not have seemed like it yesterday when I practically had to wade my way into work (RIP open-toed shoes), but SPRING HAS SPRUNG. Jack Wills recently created a guide around How to Style A Trench Coat and it got me thinking about Spring fashion, and the pieces I’m personally wearing a lot this season. As the ultimate transitional piece, the trench coat is obv one of those iconic Spring staples – and I think it’s important to have a couple of these in your wardrobe each season. But just as important are the fun, on-trend items that you might only wear for a couple of months but help update your outfits (and give us something to hopefully look back at cringe at when we’re older). I think I’ve got a healthy mix of both in my wardrobe at the moment, and here are some of my absolute faves… View Full Post
