The affordable skirt you need this summer

SHOT BY SARAH TREACHER

Summer is 100% HERE and I am so happy about it. Blue skies, light mornings, long days, beers in the sunshine… what’s not to love? And with the warmer weather inevitably comes the wardrobe switch up, digging out old dresses you forgot you owned and finding sandals you can't quite believe you once wore out in public. But let's be real, trends change all the time and people don't stay the same size forever (I ate a lot of pizza between September and June and I'm not sorry about it) so sometimes you're left with absolutely NO other option than having to spend money on pretty new weather-appropriate clothes. Heh heh heh.

How To Get Invited To Blogging Events

SHOT BY FORDTOGRAPHY

I count myself a really lucky girl that I get to attend some of the press and blogging events that I do. This year has already been an absolute whopper – Last month I attended the Stefflon Don x boohoo launch party in London which involved a really frickin cool performance from the legend herself (the free cocktails weren’t bad either, seriously a free bar just never gets old), and more recently I had a gorgeous breakfast meeting with seven stunning ladies at the Bloomsbury hotel to talk about and celebrate the Dafi hair straightening brush. There are some phenomenal events that I sometimes can’t go to because of working full time and it fully breaks my heart when I see the insta stories that evening of all my best gals partying it up – I get maaajor FOMO at the best of times – but then again I’m quite hopeful that another fun blogger event or meet up will land in my inbox before too long.

Once again, I want to reiterate that I am SO lucky, grateful… often bewildered even to get these invites, and I would hate this post to come across as braggy because any showy-offy stuff just makes me majorly cringe. I’m just being really open and honest about my own experiences and sharing a few of my tips that might help new bloggers or people thinking about blogging when they want to start networking a bit more.

Vintage dressing for a modern soul


I haven’t done a dedicated outfit post in what feels like forever, and this time I’m really excited because I’m mixing things up a bit and throwing it waaaay back to this 40s inspired sasspot of a number. I was about to claim that dresses really aren’t my thing before I realised that was a total lie, long boho maxi dresses are absolutely my thing, but cute tea dresses like this are more of an anomaly in my wardrobe.

Eyewear made simple with Arlo Wolf


I don’t know how many people know this but on a normal day to day basis it is rare you will find me without a pair of glasses glued to my face. I can see very little without them and since I started needing specs at the age of 17 my vision has got progressively worse. After an awkward trip to the opticians (has anyone else just had to totally make up which letters are up on the screen because they genuinely can’t read any of them??) I FINALLY got my myself a very overdue up to date prescription, and very quickly looked to get myself a new pair of specs to match.

This is where Arlo Wolf* absolutely came to the rescue.
