craving: christmas jumpers

14 December 2017

With it being Christmas jumper day tomorrow I've been all over the internet looking for the best festive knitwear and pulled together some of my favourites.

Be it for an occasion or just because it's Christmas, most of us don't need an excuse to get involved in the festivities but if you require a little encouragement this year then try these on for size.

pretty gifts for her (that aren't makeup or skincare)

8 December 2017

It's here. Tis' the season where we all drive ourselves crazy trying to pick the perfect gifts for our loved ones. Thinking about what to buy female family and friends can be a bit tricky, especially if you want to avoid the standard beauty gift sets. Makeup gifts can ben hard due to selecting the right colours and skincare can be such a personal thing that preferences and allergies are hard to know. With that in mind I've put together a collection of ideas that aren't makeup or skincare and are sure to give everyone a smile.

shopping for adidas originals

29 November 2017

When talking about sports trainers there are few brands that come to mind and that's because they're the best and have been leading the way for so many years. Most sport-style trainer fans will have at least one pair of both Adidas and Nike trainers in their collection, though some will collect (and obsess over) just the one brand, making it their ambition to own each and every style that brand releases.

I myself have a pair of Nike Air Max trainers and am looking to add some Adidas trainers to my shoe collection. Of the two Adidas shoe types, Originals and Performance, it's the Adidas Originals style and functionality that appeals to me the most. The Campus, Gazelle and Stan Smith low rise trainers seem to be the most popular as well as the easiest to wear and style.

Nail polish perfect for autumn

27 November 2017

The autumn season is full to the brim with beautiful colours and we all have our favourites that we love to wear throughout these chilly (and wet) months. It's easy to show our go-to fall shades through clothes, accessories, nail polish or even eyeshadow that we choose to wear. The easiest (and cheapest) way to inject these gorgeous shades is through nail varnish and with a million and one colours and brands to choose from you're guaranteed to find the one.

home style | decorating the space between spaces

19 November 2017

When thinking about redecorating your home a lot of people won't consider the in-betweens, the places you use frequently but pay no mind to and the details that are important in those spaces. Of course i'm talking about hallways. Decorating a hallway is much like connecting the dots. You want the hall to work with, and in some way reflect, each room that it leads to otherwise it can look out of place in your home.

Having recently finished decorating each of the upstairs rooms the hallway required a makeover to complete this part of the house. Pulling elements from each of the fours rooms the hallway space now sits comfortably between them.
