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. But the older you get the more self-conscious you get about your body and how it looks. My legs are a huge insecurity for me and have been for years. Previously I think I was more self-conscious of the paleness…

Adult friendships and finding your tribe.

I’ve spoken previously about friendships, introversion and about how I sometimes struggle with finding the confidence to approach people and start friendships. The post in question I wrote back in 2016 when I was really struggling with not feeling like I belonged. Fast forward two years and I’m in a much better much happier place. So what’s changed? 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.

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.

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…

GOODBYE 2017: THE YEAR AHEAD

We’ve now said goodbye to 2017, and what a year it’s been. As a society, we’ve had some pretty terrible things happen throughout the year: Theresa May, Manchester Arena bombings, London Bridge attack, Grenfell tower to name a few. Aside from all the horrible occurrences, we’ve suffered from over the year, on a more personal level 2017 has been a year I’ve enjoyed quite a lot. So similarly to last year, I thought I’d talk through some of the highlights of my year. Slimming World: Back in January 2017, I decided to join Slimming World in order to get myself…
