Saying Goodbye To Fast Fashion and Shopping More Consciously.

Today I’m here to discuss some thoughts on fast fashion. Now I’m the first to admit I love fashion. Clothes are a huge interest of mine and I love experimenting with different styles and trends. I’ve tried in the past to have a ‘minimalistic’ wardrobe with basic colours etc. But that really does not work for me – at all. I love colour, I love prints and I love having fun with my outfits. But that doesn’t mean I can’t shop more consciously. It’s weird but since turning vegetarian a year ago, I’ve become more aware of how my lifestyle…

Feeling Confident With Summer Style.

TOP: MONKI (SIMILAR) | TROUSERS: BOOHOO | SHOES: XYLONDON* | EARRINGS: BOOHOO If you’re anything like me the words ‘summer fashion’ usually generates feelings of horror and panic. When I was younger summer didn’t bother me all that much. I spent 90% of my time outside, had a face full of freckles and tan lines where my socks had been.

Previously I think I was more self-conscious of the paleness…

I think overall I’ve just become happier in myself. I’ve struggled over the past few years with issues with, self-confidence and generally not feeling comfortable with my body. This can have a huge effect on lots of different things. In the past, I’ve…

Embracing Colour and How I Found My Personal Style.

I am here today to talk about personal style. Now, this is something I’ve struggled with a lot over recent years – I feel this has mostly been down to some issues I’ve had regarding weight gain. But I also think spending a large amount of time on social media doesn’t help, you’re constantly bombarded with images of incredibly stylish bloggers who look incredible meanwhile, you’re sat on your sofa at 11.30 on a Friday morning with unwashed hair, wearing Pokemon pyjamas that you probably should have ironed. Back when I first dyed my hair bright ginger I had issues…

WINTER WARMERS: MY TOP PICKS FROM THE HIGH STREET

Jacket: Zara   Jumper: Primark    Jeans: Topshop     Boots: Marks and Spencers  Handbag: Charity Shop Warm coats, colourful jumpers and knitted scarves are my favourite part of autumn and winter. There’s just something I love about wrapping up on colder days with lots of layers. But just because the weather outside is a little on the dull side, doesn’t mean your wardrobe has to be too. I’ve mentioned this before but 2017 was the year I re-introduced colour into my wardrobe, and I’m going to tell you now 2018 ain’t going to be any different – it’s probably going to be…
