BLOGMAS// December Style Day 3

For day three, and in honour of it being the weekend, today’s look is a li’l more party season appropriate. I’ve gone for a more alternative vibe, ditching heels in favour of some blooming marvellous boots. For me, this look is Christmas ‘do worthy. The cut of the dress makes it super flattering too, so if I’m having a down day about the bod, I like to throw this on and dance about to Christmas tunes and eat another mince pie ’cause screw body shaming!

BLOGMAS// December Style Day 2

Day two of blogmas is a casual Friday look, but still seriously chic. Jeans are a Winter staple and thanks to the updates on denim this season, they don’t have to be boring. Glitter, embroidary, distressed and frills have all be huge this year and jeans are the perfect way to wear those trend day-to-day…

BLOGMAS// December Style Day 1

There’s always that temptation in Winter to just throw on anything warm and be done with it. Frumpy, baggy and layer upon layer of nothing too exciting. So I’m attempting Blogmas AND I’ve turned it into a style challenge. I’m planning on sharing one outfit everyday up until Christmas, which is a bit of a step up from my usual once a week outfit post. I’ll be sharing party looks, work wear, cosy casual styles and more. Ready to dress up for December?

Cocktail making at Bonprix on the Rocks, Malmaison

I love a sparkling, floor length, Queen Bey worthy dress as much as the next gal, but there’s something to say for pieces that you can dress up or down. Whether it’s a cosy coffee date or cocktails with your huns, get you a dress that can do both. With an invite to take a pick from Bonprix’s latest collections and get glammed up for a cocktail masterclass with my blogger babes, I was more than ready to get my glad rags on…

Feeling lucky at Man’s Market, Leeds

After five years in Leeds, I still haven’t eaten everywhere. The other half and I could happily eat out every night of the week, and with new eateries popping up all the time, there’s always somewhere new to try. The latest on the hit list? A concept Chinese restaurant that has got me genuinely excited. There are soooo many places to get great Thai and pan-Asian food in Leeds, but Chinese food has been left to all-you-can-eat buffets and greasy take-aways with glow in the dark sweet and sour. Thankfully, Man’s Market is here with a rather delicious fix…

OOTD: A/W with La Redoute*

If there’s one thing I love about this season (other than Christmas, of course) it’s the fashion. Any excuse to layer up cosy AF oversized knitwear and I’m ya gal, seven jumpers later living the life of  a chic marshmallow with exactly zero regrets. It’s not how many layers but how you style them that defines the look. For Winter, I adore minimalist colour palettes with a splash of colour and a statement piece or two for good measure…

Steak School with Blackhouse, Leeds*

I adore Leeds for plenty of reasons, but one big reason is the food. From amazing brunch spots to incredible concept restaurants, there’s plenty of instagrammable plates to go around. If you know me, you’ll know I like my steak rare (or blue if I know the restaurant) so I couldn’t blooming wait to check out the steak school at Blackhouse. It also gave me a chance to nosey around the refurb – spoiler alert: it’s seriously chic…

OOTD: autumn prints

Strolling through the park on a sunny Autumn day is all well and good until you stumble in a dip hidden by the leaves… And did I mention you’re wearing heels? But, as we all know, the best thing to do is compose yourself and strut away sassily (and avoid autumn walks unless you’re wearing wellington boots). Though if you’re the stubborn type and your Instagram is calling out for yet more basic bitch snaps, golden leaves and all, then at least make sure you look abso fabulous…

Dream Christmas with Betty’s*

For me, Christmas is about stylish decor, seeing the family and a whole lot of vino. Betty’s completely captures that vibe for me, so spending the afternoon drinking champagne and sampling treats in the Imperial Suite at Betty’s Harrogate, surrounded by Christmas decor was high on my to-do list. I was joined by some of my fave blogger babes for a truly magical Christmas…

Date night spots that aren’t totally uncool; Leeds

Whether it’s your first date or you’ve been together since before Tinder was a thing, date night is essential. Yeah, there’s nothing like getting home after work, getting into your PJs, ordering take out and bingeing on Netflix. Buuutttt as it turns out, the outside world ain’t too bad (hear me out a sec). There are actually some really great Date Night spots in Leeds. Plus, there’s retro gaming and pizza to be had…
