THE INNER FIX

THE INNER FIX

– TIPS TO STAY YOUTHFUL – I have to let you in on a secret – you can rewind the first signs of ageing. When I reached twenty-five I noticed that I could no longer bounce back from a night out, it was more like a near death experience and a few days in intensive care to get over any hang over. My skin for the first time started to look old, in particular around my eyes. I did all the things that you’re not meant to do in life – drank (a lot), smoked, partied non stop and ate…

– THEY THINK BLOGGING IS EASY – ‘Is fashion blogging, like, actually a thing?’ said the girl from behind her computer peering over her specs at me, definitely looking at me like I was crazy. Yes it’s a thing! A thing I find hard to believe that some people don’t know about. But sure enough there are a lot of people out there that haven’t discovered this world wondering if you live on a different planet when you say fashion blogging alongside career talk. ‘WHAT ARE YOU DOING THIS WEEKEND?’ Blogging. You tackle two full time jobs, working 9am-5pm on…

CITY GIRL

CITY GIRL

A GIRL OR WOMAN WHO IS A NATIVE OR INHABITANT OF A CITY, OR WHO HAS URBAN TASTES OR MANNERS… I am a born and bred country bumpkin who made her way to the big smoke as soon as she could. I dreamed of the hustle and bustle and the chance that anything could happen! I used to climb to the top of the highest hill where I lived and look at the horizon wishing to cross it one day and go on as many adventures as I could. As soon as I hit eighteen that’s exactly what I did. My twenties…

– KICK-ASS AT FASHION WEEK – It’s my favourite time of year when the last of Summer slowly turns into crisp Autumn Days. The smell of the falling leaves and a warm ice creeps into the air making you reach for your woolies once again. Not only that but Autumn also means fashion week!

A DAY AT THE RACES

A DAY AT THE RACES

I’d never been to the races before so when I got invited to Newbury Racecourse for ladies day I jumped at the chance. With a bit of a wardrobe malfunction last minute I was able to pull together this little number. I’m never one to say no to tea so I was very grateful for the opportunity to be treated by the Honesty caterers of Hungerford to Afternoon Tea in an exclusive picnic garden. Everything was made fresh from their own kitchen including the bread with their philosophy being ‘made honestly with care and no additives’ – as such a fussy eater this was…

LOST IN THE WILDERNESS

LOST IN THE WILDERNESS

– THAT MAXI DRESS – You don’t have to be lost in the wilderness to feel lost, in fact the times I’ve felt most alone and bewildered are in rooms full of people. The feeling of lost has taken me to the other side of the world just to find myself. What is it that makes you tick? Not knowing can drive you insane – not having any purpose when you wake in the morning. I’m the type of person that needs constant stimulation, I always need to be learning something or being productive. So when hit with that lost…

BALLGOWNS & BEACH WALKS

BALLGOWNS & BEACH WALKS

What are the reasons? Why do we pick the clothes we wear? What thoughts go through your head as you scroll through hundreds of online boutiques? What decision allows that final dress to make it to checkout? I spent years getting it so very wrong. The deciding factors used to vary from the colour complimenting my skin tone to making sure it made my figure look at it’s ultimate best, resulting in a disaster that somehow came across as a collective mix of Jordan and Britney. Now it’s a whole different story. My main focus is how the clothing makes…

A SPECIAL DELIVERY

A SPECIAL DELIVERY

– These are a few of my favourite things – It’s no secret that a beauty box is a bloggers dream. A monthly subscription of the latest products straight to our door ready for review makes things a lot easier when having a blog to upkeep. There are a few boxes on the market at the moment, so how do you know which is the right one for you? Well, Cohorted Box is a brand that I’ve been using since the start of my blog as it speaks my language both in aesthetics and products. For those of you that don’t…

IN THE WORDS OF KATE SPADE “PLAYING DRESS UP BEGINS AT AGE FIVE, AND NEVER TRULY ENDS”. The dressing up box lived in the attic and was brought down on occasion for my sister and I to rummage through. To the ordinary eye it was filled with limp lifeless items that once had their day but were now left to collect dust. To us it was a box of adventures that paved our stories, whether I was a princess, a bride, a nurse, a horse – my sister directed and I followed suit. We painted our faces as well as…

THE WANDERLUST OUTLOOK

THE WANDERLUST OUTLOOK

I was lucky enough to travel the world in my early twenties, I kept packing my bag and leaving without any notice. It gave me such a rush and each trip I came back a little wiser, as if I had obtained a little more knowledge that no one else understood. Escaping the bubble that you’re in makes all the little things that seem so important diminish, allowing you to readjust your priorities. Seeing how other people live their lives around the world allows you to break old habits and maybe introduce some new ones. It also highlights what or…
