How my shopping habits are changing with the times

How my shopping habits are changing with the times

Over the last 2 to 3 years, my shopping habits have begun to really change. Looking back at a few years ago, I can remember a time when I was obsessed with fast fashion and would spend £100 every other week in Primark, coming home with hauls of new outfits, that I would inevitably wear once and then throw to the back of my wardrobe.

This came partly from an obsession with different trends and wanting to always be wearing the latest piece but also from a love of fashion and a desire to be creative with the way I dressed and expressed myself every day. However, over recent years I’ve started to think more consciously about my shopping habits and am (hopefully) making changes for the better.

August Wishlist

August Wishlist

It’s been a couple of months since I posted one of my monthly wish lists and I had considered changing the format or not doing them at all moving forward because I’m conscious that I don’t want to promote constantly buying new things, but it’s the start of my favourite shopping season so I just couldn’t miss talking to you about some of my favourite pieces.

Why I like to shop the Summer sales for my Autumn/Winter pieces

Why I like to shop the Summer sales for my Autumn/Winter pieces

Yes, I said it, Autumn/Winter! I’ve gone there and there’s no going back. So as we’re creeping further into the second half of the year, I’ve started to think about colder weather trends, mainly because it’s my favourite time of year to dress for and I get so excited at the thought of switching up my wardrobe, layering up and pulling the leather trousers back out!

An Update on my 2020 Promises

An Update on my 2020 Promises

So you may remember at the start of the year, I wrote a post about how I was planning to approach the year ahead through my promises. 2020 has definitely not been anything at all like any of us planned, so last week I began to think about how I was navigating through these strange times and whether I’d managed to stay true to my core beliefs at the same time and thought it would be good to share a little mid-year update with you all.

How I’ve Updated My Eyewear for Summer…

How I’ve Updated My Eyewear for Summer…

I love the change in seasons and how it brings about new, emerging trends in the fashion world. It always makes me feel much more inspired and adventurous when it comes to putting outfits together and I find myself rooting through my wardrobe to find what I have tucked away from former Summers that I can pull out to fit with the upcoming styles and trends.

May New In Wishlist

May New In Wishlist

It’s officially British summertime (although you wouldn’t be able to tell for the non-stop rain we’ve had this week) and that is well and truly reflected in what I’ve seen in all of my favourite retailers ‘new in’ sections this last month. Think lightweight, floaty dresses, denim shorts and thin knit vests, with barely there sandals or fresh white trainers. Continue reading “May New In Wishlist”

Black Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter

This is a bit of a different post for me today, but following on from the recent events surrounding the death of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement across the world, I’ve been reflecting on not only my own experiences as a lighter-skinned black woman but also what I’ve been doing so far in my life, to contribute to racial equality.
