Q: What is your favourite item of clothing ever?

A: It would have to be my vintage velvet floral 1950’s dress! Someone who was a big part of my life at the time bought it for me on my birthday and it’s the most gorgeous dress ever! It’s something I would only wear on special occasions. 

Q: What is your ideal writing environment?

A: In bed pls. haha no, let’s be realistic here! Either at my home desk with a brew or in a quiet cafe somewhere.

Q: What is your skin care routine?

A: For a very long time I didn’t have a proper skin care routine but now I feel like I’ve got my shit together and my skin is thanking me for it. I make sure I always take my make up off before bed, cleanse, tone and moisturise. I only exfoliate once a week as my skin is on the sensitive and I use glycolic acid products which I highly recommend! Glycolic acid helps with acne, fine lines, sun damage, uneven texture, oiliness and gets rid of dead skin cells to reveal brighter and smoother skin. 

Q: How would you describe your personal style?

A: This is always a hard question for me because I don’t have a personal style, my style can change from day-to-day. I actually written a post all about not having a personal style, you can read it here.

Hello! I disappeared again didn’t I? I’m sorry. I have been mad busy with deadlines and doing shoots for other stuff that doesn’t really relate to my blog but i’m back for now!

p.s I think I have writers block (never ever good when your trying to write a post) Just stating the obvious right there.

Anyway, today its all about french gurrrrrrrl style. I have always been a fan of the cool Parisian chick and i’m forever wishing I was Anna Karina. I just love how they look so classy and cool with very little effort. These shots were taken on a very sunny Sunday afternoon by the lovely Emilia Castle. We were both terribly hungover and definitely picked the wrong day to shoot! We were trying to find a cool little cafe to take some snaps in and they were either too full, not open or we were turned down, nightmare! So we decided to just take a few shots outside the lovely Soup Kitchen in the Northern Quarter. However, I do love how they turned out and I love how relaxed the shots are. Hope you enjoy them!

Hey! just a quick one because I am currently bed bound right now with a nasty throat infection *cries* I just want to show you one of my casual outfits that I would wear whether it’s a lazy day at home, college days or a coffee with the girls (I don’t actually drink coffee but coffee just sounds better doesn’t it?)

 I have gone for the casual mom jean paired with black converse, striped T, red neckerchief and a black faux leather for some bad ass French vibes.

All about the Beret

Oh hey! How are ya? I feel like there should be an Eiffel Tower behind me but nope just rainy manc! and March why are you so cold? This always happens doesn’t it? We pray to wake up to snow and Christmas day but we are given nothing but rain or the odd bit of sun! Then February and March come and BAM! snow everywhere!! Like seriously c’mon March I’m ready for spring now.. I’m sick of wearing the same old jumper and jeans combo.

Todays outfit is.. well, a little red.. I’ve been obsessed with red lately and I love how it stands out against the duller shades and gives you that pop of colour. The cord jacket I found in a charity shop, its about 3 sizes big but I had to get it because I instantly fell in love ❤ Also I kinda like to wear my coats/jackets oversized. I teamed it with a red lip and beret. I love this beret, at first I went for the black one and had a good stare in the mirror for 10 minutes (ok maybe not that long) but then I decided to give the red beret a try as I wanted to experiment rather than wearing the usual plain black hats AND I’m so glad I did! It’s such a cute little number and adds that little bit of French girl look to any outfit.

The faux snake skin bag I’ve only worn around twice as I only bought it for a festival because I needed a smallish kind of bag to carry my things around. However when I got home I neglected her for a while as I didn’t think she matched with most of my outfits but now she’s back! I don’t know how long for… but at least she’s back. I really need to stop referring items as people.

The top (which is actually a dress) is a really lovely ribbed knit which I tuck into skirts or jeans to wear as a top instead. It has long sleeves with a slight high neck and its supaaaa comfy! With the knit I wore my favourite pair of jeans, The cropped kick flare! They really don’t look like kick flares here because I forgot to iron them before I left the house as you can tell, oops. (Thanks Dad for not telling me I had creased pants!!) These jeans are the best fit I’ve had in a while. Not too big on the waist, not too long on the leg and not too baggy on the bum! a common problem for me when trying to find the perfect jeans because I’m a teeny 5’3 with a 24 inch waist. I still convince myself that I’m going to grow taller but lets be realistic, that’s not going to happen now 😦 To finish my look I wore a printed scarf and suede, black pointy boots which seem to be appearing on every blog post lately!
