EMBRACING ME

I talk a lot about self-love, confidence and living your best life on here and that’s all good when trying to get OTHERS to love themselves, however, when it comes to me, the path is not so linear. When I often speak with my readers about the struggles they face and the confidence issues they […]

TO FINESSE A HUMMINGBIRD: A PHOTO STORY

SEQUINNED CO-ORDS YOU SAY?

Oh hai. It’s me. How are you guys doing? Today I thought I’d bring you an outfit that I’ve been rocking for a couple of weeks now.

CHECK IT OUT

Is it just me, or is check print having a bit of a moment right now? As with the polka dot frenzy before it, check print is back, and is currently most frequently seen on blazers and jackets, however, the detail has graduated to leggings, asymmetrical tops, and floaty dresses.

THE SHIRT DRESS

I’ve always been in two thoughts about shirt dresses for the longest time. On one hand, I’ve been living in shirt dresses for about a good 3/4 years now – I find them easy to dress up, casual and simple. In the back of my mind, however, I would always be on the hunt for […]
