If there’s one blog post that I’ve wanted to write for a long time it’s this one, but I’ve always been in two minds about it. I guess my biggest fear is that I don’t want this post to lead to me loosing the friends I do have by offending them, because that really isn’t … Continue reading Seeking a Girl Squad and Social Media FOMO. Why I’m Struggling to Navigate Friendship in Adulthood
Can you have an addiction to the ASOS new in section? Because I think I have it. Seriously. For a month straight I was asking myself, 'I wonder if there's anything new on ASOS?', and ordering myself at least one new outfit a week, and now in hindsight it's ridiculous. I had ASOS parcels coming … Continue reading Throw away fashion & me: the story of an online shopping addiction
For a while I've been wanting to reconnect with the blogging world and find my place again. When I started blogging, back when I was a little 13 year old, I felt like I knew where I belonged because the community was so small and I was so engaged with the wonderful world that blogs … Continue reading Trying to find my place in the influencer world
A few months ago now, (yes, it's taken me a while to actually get round to writing this blog post), I headed off to Paris with a brand I have admired ever since I became interested in fashion. DIOR!

Then … Continue reading Learning to not give a sh*t about Instagram
Although I would say that 90% of people I follow are now ‘infleuncers’, in reality there are very few that really influence me. If I’m being brutally honest, my timeline for a long time was constant stream of samey-ness (I’m very much over those white house backgrounds). Recently I've really put time into appreciating the … Continue reading Here’s to my influencers
Just before Christmas I made the decision to leave my job in the city and my daily commute in favour of a slower pace of life back in my sleepy home town in the country side. (Oh’ and to also save a LOT of money!) After a year and a half of commuting and trying … Continue reading Taking a city detox
Whether you decided to not go to university (like me) or you have a degree, the reality in most industries, especially fashion, is that you are going to start your career as an intern. Before I became an intern, that word filled me with dread because in the last few years internships have rightly been … Continue reading Interning: how to get more out of it than just making tea or photocopying
Goodbye summer and hellooooo Autumn...
With my blogging hiatus came the lose of blog post inspiration and, as much as there is nothing wrong with hauls and posts that are made up of outfit photos, I love to write and for me there’s just no substance in that. So, a few weeks of thought and a purchase of a feminism … Continue reading Should feminism have ever become a ‘trend’?
