OOTD: The Mismatched suit

As much as I love being a #girlboss, some days I’m just not feeling myself (which is totally okay). It’s easy to get stuck in a cycle of wake-up, work, sleep, repeat. I’ve always been a creative type and this ‘feeling trapped’ is just not my jam. So whenever I’m feeling in a bit of a rut, I make a change: colour my hair, try a new coffee shop, style a trend, buy a puppy (I wish). So, a quick ASOS browse and 24 hours later, I’m sporting a seriously sassy look…

Lobster Benedict Brunch at Browns, Leeds*

Brunch is most definitely the greatest ever invention, after the sassy lady emoji ofc. There is never an occasion where brunch isn’t fabulous. Need a hangover cure? Brunch. Need a shopping break? Brunch. Need an excuse to drink Prosecco before 11am? You get the gist. AND no one will ever judge you for going straight for the sweet options, ’cause pancakes are blooming delicious. It’s a win win. If you’ve checked out my top 5 brunch spots in Leeds post, you’ll known Browns Brasserie & Bar is a firm favourite of mine and my last visit was as scrumptious as ever…

Resolutions & Eating Disorders; New year, no thanks!

Like clockwork, each year the festive period is accompanied by decadence, over-indulgence and more, always more. The ad industry fills us up with FOMO for treats we wouldn’t normally eat but absolutely must have, and calories obviously don’t count because, well, it’s Christmas. Then the second January rolls around, they turn on us. Every calorie we ate over Christmas is a sin we must now pay for, in the gym and in the kitchen. Salads are suitable for every meal it would seem. We should be improving ourselves, we MUST be better. New year, new me and all that jazz…

OOTD: Lace-up everything

Suffer for your art they say… is wearing a mini dress with bare legs in January (by the blooming breezy seaside I might add) suffering enough? But the hypothermia is worth it when you get to show off THE most amazing shoes. Every once in a while, or every thirty seconds if you’re me, an item of clothing/a bag/a pair of shoes (delete as applicable) will come into your life and you will just have to have them. And it turns out glittery, lace-up heels with stars and brightly coloured pompoms on are my kryptonite…

Bao Buns at Yuu Kitchen, London*

Whenever I’m dining out (a.k.a always, ‘cause have you tried my cooking??) I try to visit somewhere new and, ideally, independent. So with an open invite to the newly opened Yuu Kitchen, I grabbed my gal Karis from Shy, Strange, Manic and headed to check it out. A nosey at the menu was enough to get me dreaming of bao buns and satay skewers. It’s full of small plates meant for sharing, so you can try a bit of everything, which is handy when everything looks and smells so blooming good…

My Biggest Style Influences, 2016

Everyday, at least 1,000,000 gals* must say they have nothing to wear, despite having a wardrobe full of clothes and more shoes than you can shake an on-trend, Vogue endorsed stick at. So since 2016 is almost up, I figured I would share where I’ve looked for my style inspiration over the past year, whenever my wardrobe has felt a bit flat…

BLOGMAS// December Style Day 18

One of my fave things about Christmas is heading out on a Winter walk. Getting wrapped up warm and heading out into the cold is just so satisfying – it’s one of the best things about leaving the city and being back home in the country side. Most people would probably plump for wellingtons and scarfs (my normal attire) but for today’s look, I’m feeling country chic…

BLOGMAS// December Style Day 17

Midi dresses can be a little difficult to wear, especially when you’re not 6 foot tall and they end up trailing along the floor. But when I spotted this gorge piece from La Redoute, I knew i had to have a good go. I’m loving metallics and burnt orange shades so this is pretty much my perfect piece for the party season – though I decided to style it up as an off-duty look to show of the versatility of the dress. Excuse the creases, ironing is not something I subscribe to (soz Mum)…

BLOGMAS// December Style Day 16

Blogmas was going swimmingly. I’ve loved the excuse to talk about fashion, body image and all that jazz everyday, to pose and pout even more than usual, to get dressed up everyday and make the most of the lead up to Christmas by wearing as much glitter as possible… Then my office Christmas party rolled around, along with a two day hangover #PrayForLucinda. But I’m working hard to catch-up, so you’ll be getting a couple of extra posts over the next few days. And whilst we’re on the topic of parties, it’s about time I show you my office party look…
