Marrakech Travel Diary.

I spent a few days exploring Marrakech with Next and couldn’t resist filming a travel diary vlog. I ate delicious moroccan tangine, walked around the YSL gardens, visited the souks and walked around the beautiful stands of clothes, rugs and home decor. Theres a few blog posts on the way about my time in the city..

Best Basket Bags for 2019: High Street to High End.

JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser. Reactivate it to view this content. I’ll be the first to admit that I didn’t think the basket bag trend would stick around. I thought it would be a fleeting trend that lingered for a couple of months, before drifting into our distant memory (like I hope neon will.. but that’s another story). However, here we are a couple fo years after their first appearance, still dipping our toes in and investing in various basket and straw bags. I’ve seen so many natural bags recently that I thought it would be nice to compile a list of my top high street and high end  basket bags of the season so you don’t need to scroll endlessly through websites. The lowest price bag is £15 and the highest is £300 so there is something for everyone! JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser. Reactivate…

How I Look After My Hair After Breakage & Hair Loss.

Most women experience hair loss and breakage at some point in life, and it happened to me a few months ago. I was sat in a New York hotel room having washed my hair the night before, and it just kept falling out in clumps – my tangle teezer was filled with so much hair that it looked like I’d not cleaned it in a month! It was one of the most traumatizing experiences because like most girls, my hair is my love. I take my vitamins, avoid heat, use hair masks and generally kept it in such good condition.. so how did this happen?! I felt such a knock to my self confidence and immediately messaged my hairdresser for advice because I was terrified to wash it again incase more fell out. Luckily for me, it only happened on one occasion so we easily narrowed the cause down to using…

10 Locations in Paris for the Best Instagram Pictures.

Did you even go on holiday if you didn’t take pictures? Whether you’re an influencer or not, everyone gets their camera out to post envy-inducing pictures on social media. As a generation, we’re all obsessed with instagram. Whenever I go on a trip, my social media is filled with inspiration boards with tourist spots, places to eat and of course – the places to get the best Instagram snaps! Paris is one of my favourite cities in the world and every corner provides a new photo opportunity, so the fact I’ve never posted a city guide is shocking but it gives me even more ammo for this post. So here you go, ten of the best places to shoot if you’re in Paris: Up the Eiffel Tower There are so many ways to get pictures with/on the Eiffel Tower and it depends where you are. I’ve got a few different locations…

Timeless Wardrobe Pieces to Invest In.

JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser. Reactivate it to view this content. Oh, what do we have here? A cheeky outfit post to kickstart the new year.. well why not! I’m pretty excited to be back to writing on the regular and can’t wait to share some of my coming posts with you. The posts were meant to start from the 1st January but with the absolute chaos in my inbox, the slight postponing was needed. But that being said, its crazy how much you can miss the tapping of a keyboard and that fast brain waffle while you frantically try to convey the words before they’ve flickered through your mind.. Anyway, today we are going back to basics and talking about the timeless pieces that I’m beginning to invest into. As I grow older, I’m beginning to realise the importance of my personal style rather than being completely…

How To Slow Down When Keeping Busy Is The Latest Trend. 

JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser. Reactivate it to view this content. Have you ever noticed how most conversations have the typical exchange? “How have you been?!” “Really busy, but I can’t complain” (or something along the same lines.. you catch my drift) Our generation seem to thrive when we’re too busy for our own good, enjoying the stress of having a giant to-do list and drinking endless cups of coffee to stay awake and complete tasks. Its as though we’re ashamed to say that we’ve had a lazy weekend or enjoyed an evening binge watching Netflix on the sofa! We are too used to living life in the fast lane that we can’t slow down.

Reasons To Consider A Trip To Benidorm.

Ah, Benidorm. The infamous TV series and a favourite amongst the boozy British holidaymakers.. but surely this little Spanish town has more to offer than beach bars and sunburnt bodies lazing all day on the sand, right?! As a travel blogger, I feel that I shouldn’t only show the places you’ve seen all over instagram but also to help you to re-consider somewhere new that doesn’t break the bank, because we can’t all afford to jet off to Africa several times a year! On one of my recent trips, I was invited to discover the beauty of Benidorm alongside Jet2 and the tourist board to prove that there is so much more to the town than meets the eye (or that you’ve seen on TV). So here is a few reasons why you should consider adding Benidorm to your travel plans.. Flights to Benidorm are Affordable. I flew from Manchester with…

What I Wore In Bilbao.

I packed for Bilbao into a carry-on suitcase which was quite a challenge given the fact that Europe is having quite the weather mix up right now. Is it going to be sunny but freezing? borderline monsoon? temperature reaching ‘Monica in humidity’ status? Hard enough with your entire wardrobe to choose from, but even harder when you’re having to decide the limited items for your cabin bag. Our trip was only four days long but naturally, I packed enough to change three or four times per day. As it was a surprise trip (we didn’t know the destination until we got to the airport), I added layers just incase I needed them but also – the summer wardrobe essentials too. But I made it work and thought I’d give you a little overview of my outfits in the beautiful Bilbao (theres a video version too if you’re interested).. Day One:…

Cycle Shorts | Autumn Trends 2018.

JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser. Reactivate it to view this content. Following on from my last Autumn trends of 2018 post featuring gothic layering, its about time that I got around to the second of the five trends. This time? We’re talking cycle shorts. The trend we all love to hate but can’t stop wearing.. I’ll be honest, when I first saw the Kardashians walking around in sweatshirts and cycle shorts.. I didn’t think it would take off. . However, looking to the street style of right now? Cycle shorts are definitely one of the biggest Autumn trends for 2018 are everywhere as much as we all love to hate them. I’m quite late to the trend as it took me a while to fully commit and even now I’m still limiting myself to plain black in a style that works for me.. This outfit is quite a simple…

Gothic Layering | Autumn Trends 2018.

London Fashion Week is officially over for AW18 and I’ll be honest, its the first time I’ve been excited in a while. I tend to take a step back and focus more on my own campaigns rather than run around between shows, but this was (possibly) my last season for a while. You might remember that the past few seasons, I’ve flitted in and out giving LFW a miss but I had to have one last go! Maybe in a future post I’ll talk about my love/hate relationship with it but for now.. enjoy a few trend focused posts showing you my favourites of the moment. As its a new season (and a new chance to grow your wardrobe) it seemed like a great time to focus on current fashion trends and share some of my faves with you. The first trend had to be gothic chic, perfectly timeless for AW.

Thomas’ at Burberry: Luxury Lunch in London.

Who doesn’t love a luxury lunch in London? I’ve lived in London for just over a year and decided its about time that I shared a few of my favourite places to eat in the city. I’ve been to Thomas’ Cafe a couple of times and its quickly become one of my favourite places for a catch up with friends and loved ones. Thomas’ Cafe is a bit of a hidden gem. Its the lovechild of Burberry, attached to their flagship store on Regent Street and much quieter than you’d expect for its location. Its the epitome of British dining with 1940’s inspired decor and a calm space away from the busy streets. The cafe is split across two floors with a relaxed downstairs for coffee and slightly more formal first floor for dining. I’ve actually been to Thomas’ Cafe for afternoon tea before, but as there is a new lunch…
