Saturday Crafternoon With Hillary’s Blinds.

  On Saturday I was lucky enough to attend an event, which may have been one of the best events i’ve attended in a very long time, if not ever. Hillary’s blinds have launched a new range of fabric designs to be used in their curtains, blinds and other home furnishings. As a way to promote the new range, which they launch every 2 years or so, they hosted a blogger crafting event with The Crafty Hen and it was so much fun! Now before I start I must say, I am in now way crafty, especially when it comes…

Pop-A-Ball @ The Tea Shed.

  Recently I’ve been spending a lot of my time alone at home job-hunting, or at least at my boyfriend’s house. So when I received an invite for The Teashed Pop-A-Ball launch night last week, I jumped at the chance to go. Nothing cheers you up quite like a local blogger event!   Now if you don’t know The Teashed is a North-East based business that started by Northumbria University Graduate Jules, who was inspired by her time as an intern to create a company that specializes in lots of different types of tea and tea memorabilia.   Back in…

Truth be told I think my lack of confidence/inspiration has stemmed more from the fact that i’ve gained weight than my actual hair colour. Generally at the moment i’m living in jeans and breton tops because thats all I feel comfortable in, and i’ve totally lost my spark. I’m bored of wearing t-shirts and monochrome, I miss colour and cute dresses and feeling sassy as fuck! I’ve always found my biggest fashion inspiration comes from fellow bloggers…

Lifestyle | Dealing With Anxiety.

Now you’d struggle to browse the inter-web today without noticing the mention of #timetotalk, which is all over social media today. Time to Talk is a campaign to encourage the discussion of mental health, and take 5 minutes out of your day to talk. So I thought this would be the perfect time to share my story and my experiences with mental health. You probably don’t know, because i’ve not really talked openly about it on here, but I suffer from anxiety and have done for over 10 years now. I am happy to say over the past 3 or…

New Year, New Hair.

One of my aims for 2015 was to be braver with my appearance, as over the past year and I half I have really struggled with my confidence about how I look. For years i’ve had the problem of a wardrobe full of clothes and nothing to wear, i’d pick up clothes I liked but was never able to put them together with other items in my wardrobe. Too many clashing patterns and colour and generally quite muddled about my personal style.  But since I have gained a little extra weight over the past two years, this has gotten even…
