Seasonal Mood | SAD

November 30, 2018


It's getting to that time of the year where you leave your house in the dark and come back in the dark. Every day just seems greyer and greyer, and it's definitely not helping your mood.

Around winter time my mood is at an all time low and I've noticed this for the past maybe 3 or 4 years now. I feel down all the time and anything can ruin my day. My college/uni work struggles because I'm not motivated, I lose friends and I just feel absolutely shit. As a generally positive person, I feel like it's all my fault. This is also when the over thinking is at it's peak, making me worry about everything I say or do and picking apart all the conversations I have, convincing myself that everyone hates me.

Anyone else feel like that recently?

Meditation, Self Care & All That

October 19, 2018

I am writing this post while sitting snuggled up in bed getting over a week long cold. It's times like this that you re-evaluate how you treat your body and notice that you're slacking. I have been living off Lemsip and paracetamol!

7 Fashion Books to Get Inspired

October 06, 2018




As most people would say, we're drawn to visual things. I was always that kid that looked at the pictures in books and watched films because frankly, it was just easier that way. I may not own many books to read, but I definitely have plenty of books purely because they have lots of beautiful visuals in them to keep me engaged. Today I have a list of some of my favourite fashion books that I either own or have borrowed.

Fenty Soft Matte Foundation Review | YAY or NAY

September 09, 2018


I haven't done a review or a beauty post in a long time and this is something that I've been meaning to say for a while now as it may be controversial. Its a NAY for me!

Wine & Dine at Sexy Mamma Love Spaghetti | Nottingham

August 31, 2018


This sexy mamma loves me some spaghetti! Nothin' better than some pasta on a week day. Just around the corner from our flat, me and Oli tried the Sexy Mamma Love Spaghetti.

This cute little restaurant in Hockley has blown up recently, being completely packed every time I'm there. The waiters ended up setting new tables outside for the customers which I very much appreciated!

Casual Summer Wardrobe | Fosse Fashionista Event

August 12, 2018
The heat waves are out of control! One day you're sweating, the next it's raining. We've had some crazy weather in the past few weeks, you just don't know what to wear when you're leaving the house for work. Fosse Park, the Leicester based retail park, kindly invited me to join their #FosseFashionista event and pick some summer outfits for the event.

With the bipolar weather I thought that going for the summer tops, shorts and skirts may not be the best idea. Who knows how much longer we'll have the sun. Working a 9-5 job I also wanted something that will be smart to wear for work but also summery. 

The Fosse Park team were kind enough to give me a gift card for one of their selected stores including Topshop, Outfit, River Island or Next to pick my summer outfit. I decided to pick some pieces exclusively at New Look rather than the other stores as recently it's my go-to high street store. Having a more realistic sizing for women and generally offering a wider range of wearable clothes, New Look stand out amongst high street competitors. Unlike other high street stores, I always find something that I like and actually feel good in. 






Overcoming a Creative Rut

July 30, 2018




We all get the occasional creative rut every now and then. Or if you're like me, every day, but who's counting aye. I haven't posted for a few weeks now because life got in the way with work placement, my mum getting married and a bunch of other excuses. Nonetheless I haven't felt creative in a long time. I ran out of ideas, motivation and the spark that makes you feel like you're onto something great.

I'm here today to share the pain with my fellow creatives and give my best tips on overcoming this dreadful time in your life. I've been trying really hard to deal with this problem as I really need some insight coming into third and final year at uni. I want to end with a bang and make the best work that I have ever made and just generally be proud of myself. Am I aiming too high?
