Le Freak, C'est Chic!


Happy Halloween you wonderfully spooky lot! I hope you're raring to go with your best pumpkin craving skills and your most frightfully monstrous costume at the ready. This is my officially my most favourite time of year! There's something about all the decorations, the turn in the weather and all the golden leaves scattering the streets which makes me revert back to being a 7 year old kid. So in light of us all get our freak on (Cue Missy Elliot...) I wanted to discuss the notion of how wonderful being your own little weirdo actually is! As Winona Ryder in Beetlejuice so aptly and proudly put it, "I myself am strange and unusual".

Russell & Bromley A/W17 Edit- Diamonds On The Straps Of Her Loafers




Shopping for footwear in A/W can often be a little daunting. There's a lot of limitations and practicalities to keep in mind and unfortunately when sensibility takes priority it can often seem like aesthetics have to take a backseat. As the years roll by one of the biggest lessons I've learned when shopping for my winter shoes is it's all about "investment" styles. The one's you can pull out of your wardrobe time and time again, that won't age and won't let you down. The one brand I swear by for my footwear is without a doubt Russell & Bromley, I've quite literally spent years living in nothing but their shoes and when it comes to winter they have my needs well and truly catered for.

Klarna Pay Later- Smooth Operator


Advertorial
A week or so ago the lovely folk at Klarna set me a challenge to do an online shop using their "Pay later" option, styling together an outfit which best represented both myself and the brand's staple colour scheme... And I jumped at the chance. Why? Well firstly online shopping sounds like THE easiest and most fun challenge ever, am I right or am I right? Secondly as if the premise of shopping for a challenge wasn't enough of a walk in the park, doing it via Klarna's Pay later makes the whole thing even more easy peasy lemon squeezy! Win/win situation!

Hermèsmatic- Waiting For A Girl Who Wears Scarves Instead Of Hats



Oooh I'm so excited to finally tell you all about my adventures with Hermès, I've been putting it off for the last few weeks because I've been waiting for the opening of it's brand new and super exciting pop up shop (we'll get ti that more in full in a mere moment) before I talked you through the full details of my trip down Hermès lane and my masterclass in the silk scarf... And what a pretty chic masterclass it was!

Instagram Killed The Radio Star


I've got a little question for you all to ponder on this week; has social media changed things up for the better, the worst or has it simply just changed? No real positives or negatives just- you know- made things... different? I mean we know it's vastly become a life changer but what I want to know is, is it a life SAVER? The reason I'm asking this is I guess because lately I've been questioning it. Simple. There's no denying the the teen life I led 10 years ago... eww I know- when Myspace was revolutionary and Facebook was just a gleamer in Mark Zuckerberg's dorm room- is vastly different to teens lives right now. It doesn't take a genius to work out it's largely down to social media and the pivotal part it now plays in most millennials lives whether they choose to accept that fact or not. Our priorities have changed. The way we think, behave and make every day decisions is different and I can't decide if it's a good thing or the horrible byproduct of our growing reliance on social media.
