Nothing’s gonna touch you in these Golden Years

So, it’s that time of year again where we reminisce about everything we’ve been up to over the past twelve months (yep you guessed it, this is another “Year in Review” post). Personally, I just love this time of year – although I’m not quite sure why. Perhaps it is the thought of a fresh new slate – new year, new me and all that or maybe it is simply the idea of picking up a fresh new journal with all of the trimmings … I’m leaning  ...

Forever in Blue Jeans

For me, 2017 has been the year of Personal style. As a huge fashion lover, I have followed print and digital fashion publications from a very young age. I have always had a keen interest in reading about the latest trend pieces and seasonal style predictions. However, even with all the outfit inspiration under the sun, I found it extremely difficult to refine my very own personal style. This was until I stumbled upon The Curated Closet. The Curated Closet by Anushka Rees is a style guide  ...

Detoxing your Wardrobe

Like many people, I would describe myself as a little bit of a hoarder – especially when it comes to clothes. With this in mind, you can only imagine how cluttered my wardrobe can be.  If you are a bit like me, there’s a good chance that there are more than a few pieces lurking in your wardrobe that you haven’t worn since god knows when e.g those disco pants from 2012 (you know the ones). Additionally, you may find that there are also a few pieces in there that no longer  ...

My Autumn Fashion Picks

If you haven’t already guessed from my abundance of autumnal themed posts, Autumn / Winter is definitely my favourite time of the year. Living in Scotland, I feel like we sort of get a bit of a bum deal when it comes to summer. Every year we buy sandals and sundresses in hopes of a few toasty days – or maybe even a week of ‘em. However, realistically those sunny days are very few and far between. Don’t get me wrong, Glasgow is my favourite place in the whole world. However, I can’t  ...

My Personal Style Journey – An Update

As a huge fashion lover, I love reading pretty much anything style related from outfit of the day blog posts to articles on seasonal trends and high street fashion finds. However, over the past few years, I have become increasingly intrigued by the idea of personal style and how it can be defined. Since my teens, I have always had a rough idea of the general vibe I like to go for. However reading “The Curated Closet” by the wonderful Anuschka Rees has really helped me to define  ...

Escape to The Highlands – The Lookbook

  This weekend, my mum, my sister and I decided to book up a last minute trip to the highlands – and man, last minute plans really are the best kind of plans. Over the past few weeks I have been spending crazy amounts of time glued to my computer screen between work, blogging and Netflix binging (no regrets), therefore this little last minute getaway was the perfect way to detox in a digital free zone. Glencoe is probably my favourite highland hideaway, its mountain views are  ...

Identifying Personal Style and Building my Dream Wardrobe with “The Curated Closet”

“I Have Nothing to Wear” As a huge lover of all things fashion and lifestyle, I have always enjoyed reading about the latest seasonal trends, searching for style inspo online and picking out “must have” pieces to incorporate into my wardrobe. However, over the past few months I have all too often found myself blankly staring at my overflowing shelves and thinking “I have nothing to wear”. Yes, realistically I have an ABUNDANCE of pieces I could mix and match together  ...

The £5 H&M Belt You Need in Your Life.

Have you been swooning over THAT Gucci belt? I’m pretty sure you’re not the only one. However, it seems that H&M have come to save the day! For a good few months now the Gucci double G belt has been floating around my Instagram feed (taunting me) and has been a firm favourite amongst some of my favourite style bloggers. The belt itself has a very minimal design – with its plain black band and iconic branded buckle. However, I feel that its simplistic nature is the very  ...

Styling with Colour Elements

Colour Elements I have to admit, I for one am more than guilty of looking at my overflowing wardrobe and thinking “I have nothing to wear”. For anyone who has ever experienced this frustration, you will know that the struggle is real. However, over the past few months I have made a conscious effort to be a little more mindful when it comes to clothes shopping. Having read so many interesting articles on the benefits of building a capsule wardrobe, this A/W I will be working towards creating  ...

Blush Pinks and Quirky Prints

Over the past few weeks I have been picking up a few summer bits and bobs from the highstreet and thought it would be cool to share my favourite picks.  As I’m not jetting of on holiday until the end of August I’ve been trying my best to be sensible and  pick up pieces which will work in both rain and shine – even though this season’s beachwear has been extremely tempting!   First Up – The Bomber Jacket I’m not usually one to wear light, pastel  ...
