Reminiscing On A British Summer.

Where do you enjoy summer the most? For me, nothing beats a British summer (as much as I love to get away). The echo of the past rings through each afternoon with endless weekends spent in the park eating sausage roll filled picnics, or visiting the local coastline for a day at the beach to lounge in a deck chair with a Mr Whippy ice cream. I decided to spend this summer at home and planned only one trip abroad. Granted, being in London isn’t quite the same as being in Brighton but I’ve spent my evenings lying on Clapham Common and had several picnics with friends, or drinking Pimms at golden hour.   My wardrobe this summer has also been the much more refined with a focus on quality and investing in pieces which will last longer than one season. The selective process made minimising my wardrobe a lot easier…

Self Love and Lingerie.

Self Love We hear about it all the time but do we really know what it means to love ourselves? When I was approached by Wonderbra recently and asked to create some content featuring their new backless bra, it seemed like the perfect time to pull this post out of my draft folder and finally finish and publish it – because I think lingerie is the best accompaniment to the discussion of self love. There’s a strange feeling that comes with getting older which is almost an acceptance of who you are. A kind of realisation that regardless of how we look – it’s what’s inside that really matters. This year was the official beginning of my late twenties (or the end of my mid twenties depending on how you look at it) and as thirty approaches, I’m determined to enter a new stage of life with the full acceptance and understanding…

What I Packed For A Sailing Holiday in Croatia.

I’ve done my fair share of sailing over the years and definitely learnt from experience when it comes to (over)packing for boat life. The very first trip that I did involved a medium sized suitcase, giant rucksack and my friend with the same amount of luggage in a tiny cabin with no room to move. Safe to say we both learnt from our mistakes and packed much lighter the second time around. For this trip, I thought I’d show you how my packing usually goes.. and share everything that went into my case. JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser. Reactivate it to view this content.

What To Wear To Be Respectful, But Stylish in Marrakech, Morocco

Whether you’re wondering what to wear on a trip to Marrakech or just browsing for some holiday travel inspiration – you’ve come to the right place.. I hope! Morocco is one of the most beautiful, instagram worthy locations in the world but there is also a majority Muslim population. You don’t have to cover up because the locals are understanding of the western culture, but if you want to be respectful then there’s a few style rules like covering shoulders and wearing dresses below the knee, etc. You’re probably wondering why every instagram pic seems to be someone in a cute summer dress or bikini by a pool.. and I honestly didn’t question the dress code until I looked on Pinterest for some Inspo. The most typical accommodation is Riads or retreats, which is where the western dress is more acceptable. I stayed in a beautiful retreat on the outskirts of…

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…
