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.

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.

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!

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”

Let’s Talk About Mules…

Let’s Talk About Mules…

Mules aren’t exactly new to the fashion game, however they are big this season like never before and this is all thanks to the statement style from Bottega (yet again!). I remember a couple of years ago when the Gucci Princetowns were released and the high street went crazy for dupes in that shape and style, but even then I don’t remember mules being so on trend as they are at the moment.
