my holiday haul

30 September 2014

Shopping abroad is fantastic, especially in Portugal. There are so many stores that I love to visit and we're always finding new unique stores hidden between the amazing and huge 'chinese shops' and various cafe restaurants. My favourite discovery this year is a store named Parfois which I subsequently found have stores all over the world and ship to the UK which I'm pretty excited about. This is are the majority of things that I bought, excluding the clothes - I'm going to write about those separately.

my health kick: sleep

29 September 2014


Sleeping is so important - people aren't always aware of the effects that a lack of sleep can have on your body and mind. It may seem odd for me to be talking about health and sleep but continue reading and you'll understand why.

autumn / winter at boohoo

27 September 2014


Autumn is my favourite part of the year with the red and orange leaves everywhere, the crisp chill in the air and smell of log burning fires - then there are the clothes. The beginning of this season is always full of wishlist's for me thanks to the reintroduction of beautiful deep colours and layering pieces.

life in black leather boots

22 September 2014

I've found myself knee deep in bookmarks again and I appear to be collecting a wishlist for every type of black leather boot there is! Almost every saved shoe is shade of black, most likely leather and of course a boot because that was the original purpose of my online shoe shopping spree. You may know by now that my staple footwear is a boot of some sort and beyond that a black boot is my go-to. To have a collection of every shape, height and style would be a dream! The collection below would do my quite nicely - especially because of the variants in heel height.

I thought I'd show you some favourites from my shoe shopping list, explain why I like these types of boots and how I wear them.


my happy distractions

21 September 2014


I spend a lot of my time on digital devices, it comes with the job and of course the blogging - but recently I stepped back from myself and remembered that there is a life beyond it all and I still have one. Don't get me wrong, I love the internet in all it's wonder but there is a good amount of shit on the web, and quite literally in some instances. I'll never step away from my phone, iPad and laptop forever, as I said, it's my job, my hobby and I love it but I am drawing myself a line.
