Summer Loving

Photos by Darrell K Morris

These photos mark a point in my life that I was very much in love with; university. It's funny how your heart can be taken up with places just as much as people.

However, as well as somehow managing to get a law degree during my time there I also managed, more importantly, to gain a best friend - my favourite person.

Alas I will not be spending February 14th with him, but I've never been really sure how I feel about valentine's day anyway.

Feelings don't need to be dressed up in sugary sweetness and accompanied by overpriced flowers to be meaningful, nor do they need to be expressed to anyone else. Feeling content with a glass of something cold or a mug of something hot, netflix and a long evening. Romance is not dead.

With that said, Valentine's day does bring with it one of my very favourite things; puns. In card form.
(See here or here.)

How will you be spending your February 14th?

Rosegal (literally)

 So apparently it's February. How on earth we have got to the second month of 2017 is beyond me, especially with all that's going on in the world - I would comment further, but I feel politics may be outside the remit of this happy-go-lucky blog. 

Anyway, frostbitten days and existential matters mean I am in dire need of a little brightness. Something that adds a touch of colour to wardrobe. I've gone on relentlessly about how I've tried to step out of my bat cave of black clothing, and I'd like to think injecting a little orange or pink to an outfit provides that little lift which my morning mood so desperately needs. (That and the La la land soundtrack. Honestly.)

These little gems are both from Rosegal and I am most certainly smitten. Given the month, I feel that my new found love is rather apt.

Which is your favourite item (and do you have any valentine's plans)?

Say something loving

Top - Zaful
Skirt - Zaful
Shoes - Primark
Bag - Zara

Currently trying to stave off those gloomy Sunday night feels with hot chocolate and outfit planning. I hope they'll come a time when I'm not wishing for Friday and can actually enjoy the working week. 
Fingers crossed.

I'm curious to know how all of you lovely readers spend your weeks; leave me a comment and let me know :)

Sammydress Mini Haul

TGIF. For real. I find it upsetting that I'm currently living for the weekend, but I guess it makes me appreciate my Saturdays and Sundays more. Fridays also provide me with an excuse to browse through a shopping site of choice until my heart's content,
The items from this little haul however, were very kindly sent to me from Sammydress; pretty pieces that are slotting into my wardrobe very nicely.

01. I know embroidered everything is everywhere, but I could not resist this little gem. It just gives that classic biker style something different and I am all for twists on classics (aperol in my prosecco - you know the drill.) The hummingbird design is so delicate - I wish I was quite so skilled with a needle and thread.

02. This marshmallow jacket is perfect to adding an extra element of colour or texture to a wintery look. It's super soft but still retains a structured fit,perfect for just throwing on when you need a sugary injection of pink.

03. These shoes have to be the real stars of the haul though. They came through my door on New Year's Eve so I was eager to wrestle open to box and stagger around Liverpool in them. I find this style of heel so much more comfortable, supportive and actually easy to wear for extended periods of dancing. A true new fave.

Which is your favourite piece?

Winter VIPme review

jumper - George
jeans - Zara
coat - VIPme
bag - Gamiss

These photos were taken by the wonderful DK Morris around Liverpool. 

Unable to quite believe it's 2017, but here we are. A new year, a new season and a new coat. How perfect that for the colder weather I have been lucky enough to get a piece of clothing that is anything but dull.
I have a thing for coats. Whether the pavements be frosty or drenched in sunlight, I will often reach for my trusty leather jacket or duster, to add that extra layer of interest to an outfit. I have never really had (shock horror) a really nice longline number suitable for the colder months.
Cue VIPme.
A true treasure trove of pieces,with just about everything you could ever wish for. As winter was approaching, I decided to choose a coat, which VIPme were kind enough to send to me.
I wanted something classic, yet with something a little more. Naturally, when I saw this chic camel number with a splash of red adorning the back, I could not resist.
The quality is the thing that surprised me the most. It's lovely and soft, as well as being well put together, something which is often overlooked in this world of fast fashion. And pockets! Actual real pockets which I can put things in. 

VIPme have very kindly given me a discount code Georgia485 which can get you $5 off a $50 order. Would also recommend a peek around, as they have some gorgeous things in the sale right now. 

Would you wear this coat?
