29 March 2014

When am I not lusting after a handful of pieces from missguided?! I decided because of this it was about time I put together a sizeable wishlist post that shows how much I love to shop MG and why!

make work wonderful

26 March 2014


Some of you will be aware that I changed jobs late last year and I couldn't be happier from doing so. I moved because the business I worked for previously was quite a toxic environment for a number of reasons and i'm still so pleased that I moved back to the company where my love affair with the inter-webs began!

Being happy in your job is so important, it shouldn't just be a place where you turn up to get paid. I believe that everyone should enjoy their work.

craving: love(ly) pieces

25 March 2014


Every now and then I find myself drawn to a theme, rather than a colour or a trend, a word will encourage me to shop for certain things and at the moment that word is love.

I need help with hair treatments

23 March 2014

My hair is looking a little worse for wear so I need to get hold of a good leave in treatment, mask or oil .. anything really that will save me.

craving: trainers perfect for spring

21 March 2014

This sort of in between-y weather makes me want to live in trainers, sweet pastel coloured plimsoles, super-cool hi-top trainers and other lazy trend footwear. I've done a little window shopping on my favourite shoe site again and have come up with a great mix of trainers I would love to have in my spring/summer wardrobe.

london retro glasses review and giveaway

20 March 2014



I'm hosting a giveaway on behalf of MyOptique for the chance to win a fantastic pair of London Retro glasses! This is a great opportunity for one of my lovely readers to get hold of some prescription glasses or sunglasses!

I went for the London Retro glasses called SOHO DK TORT 47 they're well made an fit my head perfectly which is surprising as I have a relatively little head (apparently). I have dubbed these my new at home glasses as it hardly feels like they're on thanks to the large lenses and the lightweight material.

It's super easy to enter this giveaway and i've even thrown in an extra entry to support Bournemouth Uni with their mission to get their summer ball pimped by mtv - there's more info here about what's going on - i'm just trying to help out because of a friend that goes to BU and I think it's a great competition being hosted by Lucozade and MTV.

I did a little shopping at the weekend and as it's not often I get to town for a shopping trip let alone have time to photograph it I thought that i'd share my purchases.
