LEARNING TO DRESS FOR MYSELF

LEARNING TO DRESS FOR MYSELF

– It’s more important that women like my handbag than men like my ass – My style like most peoples has changed dramatically through the last decade. If I look back at the transition of my twenties the change is phenomenal and I can actually pinpoint the epiphany I had that made me hone in on my personal style that I have today. When I used to shop as ‘twenteen’ I’d pick up a dress and think of what other people would think of me in it, in particular boys and so my fashion decisions where very boobie, figure hugging…

A SINGLE disadvantage in the blogging industry?

A SINGLE disadvantage in the blogging industry?

My whole life my single self has been my best self. It’s when I truly feel me, I work harder and I play harder. Probably because I have a habit of dating the wrong men but I’ve always been happiest alone. So jumping on a plane to Milan after flying solo to Los Angeles wasn’t something that scared me. Booking a table for one at restaurants, wandering the Italian streets alone with an ice cream is actually something I enjoy. It dawned on me on this trip though after asking the sixth tourist to take a picture of me at…

LONDON FASHION WEEK

LONDON FASHION WEEK

Okay, okay, I know it’s been a while, but hopefully you should be reading this on my brand new blog! Yes welcome to my new home and it probably explains my little absence for a little while. A blog overhaul was long overdue as I’d never actually invested any money into the design before (except for the domain). I’ve been blogging full time now since March and I thought it was about time I blogged in a place I was happy with and hopefully you’ll be happy here too. It would be wrong of me to blame the whole blog…

CITY OF ANGELS

CITY OF ANGELS

– AN UNEXPECTED TRIP – My life used to be so exciting, I travelled the world, went to the most amazing parties and pretty much said YES to any opportunity. I was a ‘wet hair girl’ and by definition a girl that simply jumps at any opportunity – the good, the bad and the damn right crazy. Mid twenties I freaked out, pressurised by society to settle down, get a job in the real world, find a place to call home. This year something happened. I quit the real world after lasting approximately five minutes and started to live my…

A LIVERPOOL DATE

A LIVERPOOL DATE

 – BRITISH STYLE COLLECTIVE – Eight years ago I headed down south to live in the ‘big smoke’ – a city full of opportunity. Moving from Liverpool to London I never thought I would return, but sure enough I’ve retreated back up north, something which I never thought I’d do. Whether it’s a change in the city or a change in myself, Liverpool seems like it has so much more to offer these days. From the British Style Collective to Vogue events (which I’m heading to tonight) there’s something going on in the Northern hemisphere that was missing all those years ago. Don’t get…

THIN/FLAT HAIR TIPS

THIN/FLAT HAIR TIPS

– HAIR HACKS – Hair envy is something which I’ve had to deal with throughout my life. I wasn’t blessed with beautiful thick hair that just falls into place when I wake up in the morning. I have limp, flat, lifeless hair and have to really rely on products to inject life into it. Over the years I’ve started to realise the real benefits of having thin hair – it’s malleable and can hold a hairstyle all day. Again the right products to achieve this is something that i’ve tried, tested and perfected. Volume usually requires heat so firstly heat…

CLASSIC CLINIQUE

CLASSIC CLINIQUE

– NEW IN PRODUCTS – Like so many of us my mum introduced me to Clinique so it’s a brand I attach a lot of sentiment to. The Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel was the first moisturiser I ever used and my mum still religiously uses it to this day. For me Clinique is a brand I trust with my skin and for someone with acne, prone, sensitive skin that says a lot! TAKE THE DAY OFF Firstly let’s talk about removing that stubborn make up. So many times I’ve thought I’d wiped my face clean only to reveal when washing my face I still have…

SORRENTO ESCAPE

SORRENTO ESCAPE

– THE TRAVELLER GUIDE – I’d never been to Sorrento before but having recently visited Venice and Rome I had high expectations on what this Italian coast line had to offer. Italy is always beautiful, even borderline make believe with each street and scenic route somewhat magical. A flight to Naples then a coach ride past the iconic volcano Mount Vesuvius followed by cliff tops all the way to Sorrento – not one for vertigo. The hotel was right in the centre and a short walk to the harbour, where you can swim, eat and of course board a yacht…

MY ITALY WORKOUT

MY ITALY WORKOUT

– SCULPT YOUR SILHOUETTE – I used to work out in a ten year old baggy t-shirt and sweats and wondered why I was so de-motivated to exercise. Now, well into my gym bunny phase I can totally see the importance of looking good in the gym. Don’t be fooled my attire is not to impress any on lookers – as a firm singleton I probably should browse the gym crowd however my gym time is strictly for me. The activewear of choice has to tick all the boxes. Performance – does it hold everything in place? Durability – is…
