Transition into Spring & Out of Lockdown

Transition into Spring & Out of Lockdown

So this year, I feel like the transition from Winter into Spring feels so much bigger than usual. Here in the UK, we are on the road out of a strict lockdown which we’ve been living in since the New Year and the prospect of lighter nights and warmer weather, along with being able to go out and about more is a momentous moment! I’ve been daydreaming about my Spring outfits after spending the last 12 months in loungewear but you may be surprised to know, that loungewear is still going to be a big trend as we move into the new season.

The Gift Guide Series: Something For Her

The Gift Guide Series: Something For Her

So here it is, my Christmas 2020 Gift Guide ‘For Her’. I’ve tried to gather as many different types of gifts within various price ranges that I could think of, so that hopefully this caters to a lot, if not all, of the women in your life. I decided not to include fragrance as I find that quite a personal preference and probably not one I would choose on recommendation, but aside from that you’ll find everything from skincare and haircare, to homewares and hobbies.

Christmas Pyjama Edit

Christmas Pyjama Edit

At this time of year, when it’s dark from 4pm until 8am and the evening and night time seems to last forever, one of the things I love the most is getting my festive PJ’s out from the back of my drawers and cosying up with a glass of mulled wine and some Christmassy snacks. It somehow makes those long nights more bearable, and really helps me get into the Christmas spirit.

Three Coat Trends for Winter 2020

Three Coat Trends for Winter 2020

Ok, it’s been a while, I know. But I’m back and hoping to inspire you over the coming weeks with all things fashion and festive! Autumn/Winter is one of my favourite times to dress for and a huge reason for that is because I absolutely love coats. I usually buy one new coat every Winter, although I could definitely buy A LOT more, but as I only buy one it’s a decision I take very, very carefully. I’m usually scouring the shops for weeks beforehand to make sure I’m making the best decision and through my constant searching, this year I’ve come across some gorgeous coat trends for the 2020 Winter Season.

Brand Overview: nu-in Fashion

Brand Overview: nu-in Fashion

Todays’ post is dedicated to the new kid on the block for sustainable fashion, at the high street level of the market. As you guys know, I’m always striving to bring more elements of sustainability into the way I shop and have talked to you before about specific brand campaigns and ranges, that are based on more considered processes and garments; but I think this is probably the first time I’m talking to you about an actual complete brand whose entire ethos is based around sustainable clothing.

4 Ways to Style that H&M Knitted Vest

4 Ways to Style that H&M Knitted Vest

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last month or so, you’ve no doubt seen those H&M knitted vests or gilets that are allllll over the internet. First came the v-neck, then the high neck and now I think I’ve even seen a crop version pop up a couple of days ago. They are the perfect in-between season piece for someone like me who’s pretty much dying to get their knitwear out, but is also still wrestling with some sort of Indian Summer or mini September heatwave.

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.
