Saying my last goodbye to summer

Last week, when I was doing my usual morning post office trip, I could literally see my breath as soon as I walked out my door. I had to come back inside, put down my huge never ending pile of parcels and grab my sheepskin from the back of my spare room! It was a pretty sad moment for me as a lot of you know I’m a little summer child. The feeling of the warm sun on my face is one of the things that make me feel the happiest in life. I love going for walks in the sun, I love eating my breakfast in the garden, I love little summer dresses and most of all I love sitting in a field listening to my favourite bands with a pint in my hand.

10 things I (wouldn’t) want to live without

FASHION, LIFESTYLE

Hey hey! I wanted to create a quick and fun post so I decided to do a post on things I (wouldn’t) want to live without. I put ‘wouldn’t’ in brackets because I’ve seen posts before on ‘Things I couldn’t live without’ and when I was planning this post, which was originally going to be ’10 things I couldn’t live without’ I realised that most of my answers, realistically, I could 100% live without. Lets be honest, It’s clear that I won’t survive without water but I definitely could survive without pizza (even though that would be a miserable life) So, here’s my 10! 

Pen and paper – There’s something so old school about pen and paper! In a world focused around phones and technology, there’s something that excites me about pen and paper. It takes seconds to send a text to a friend/loved one but a hand written letter is the best gift you could ever receive. Postcards, hand written to do lists, paper diary’s and calendars! (pls never get rid of these precious things)

My Cat – An absolute obvious one! you know how much I love my cats. Cats are the best company (when they want to be haha) and they are just the cutest little fur babies!! I could write some more about cats but it’s probably best that I don’t, because once I start I wont stop…

My gold cat necklace – I told you I wouldn’t stop! My best friend bought me a cat necklace for my 21st birthday and I’ve had it on ever since. If I forget to put it on I feel completely naked!! like I may as well not be wearing any knickers.

How to stay inspired

Hey hey! I thought I would write-up a quick post for you today on how I stay inspired and hopefully it may help you to stay inspired too. A few weeks ago I was ill, I couldn’t go out the house much so I was basically either in a hospital bed or in my own bed/couch. I started to feel really shitty about myself and my blog. I wasn’t able to get any posts written up because I couldn’t go out and get photo shoots done and I was surrounded by either my own home or nurses and other people who were ill. Don’t get me wrong I’m always truly inspired and amazed by nurses and doctors and what they do for us but I couldn’t help but stare down at my snot green hospital socks whilst hooked to a drip and think ‘I NEED SOME INSPIRATION, I AM GOING INSANE!’

“What is your personal style?”

FASHION

32219181733What is your personal style? A question I get asked a lot in interviews and a question I can never fully answer. When I think about this question, something comes to mind that I don’t actually have a personal style and to be honest I’ve never had one. Ever since I got into fashion I never wanted to dress the exact same as someone else, I never had a fixed style. Don’t get me wrong I’ve always had my style icons, Debbie Harry, Anna Karina, Alexa Chung etc.. but they’re just celebs that I look to for outfit inspo if I’m feeling uninspired. I would pick parts of Debbie Harry’s style but then I would also pick parts of somebody elses style and then put my own twist on it. I still do that today, but now I’m dressing more for me, rather than dressing to just look ‘cool’ or ‘ vintage’. I dress in clothes that flatter my figure and that make me look like the best ME. I know what doesn’t look good on me and what does, I think that’s the most important thing when it come to fashion. I’m a teeny 5’2 and a half (haha I had to add that half in) which means I know to wear skirts and dresses that come above the knee to elongate my legs. I can’t wear those dreamy bohemian maxi dresses because I literally look like I’m wearing a potato sack that is trailing along the floor collecting up dust. I don’t do too well with some cropped jeans because I feel they cut my legs off even more. However kick flares are a god send!! and booties above the ankle are an absolute no go for me! #cankle probs.
