iPhone X: a latecomer’s review

Ah the classic curse of the iPhone. Once you buy one, there really is no turning back. You are now destined to spend your life waiting for your contract to run out so that you can upgrade to the slickest new member of the apple family. Because let’s face it, who really wants an android?…

Statement earrings

If there’s one thing I can’t get enough of at the moment, it’s big, colourful earrings. With this funky trend growing steadily over the past few months, it’s fair to say that high street shops have seriously upped their jewellery game, and I am very happy about it. After going through a young teenage phase…

2018

2018? When did that happen? Once again we have arrived at the end of another year. Inevitably, as the midnight hour edges closer, it elicits that somewhat cliché air of reflection within us. In the anticipation of a new year, a new life, a new tomorrow, we are invited to contemplate the events of the…

Christmas in London

The idea of going to London near Christmas is pretty marmite-esque. For some people, it fills them with joy and excitement, for others, it fills them with a sense of sheer dread.

Pyrenees paradise

There are few views more spectacular than those you find up in the mountains. Unfortunately, back in England, living in possibly one of the flattest areas ever, these views don’t come around all that often. That’s why the Pyrenees became one of my top destinations to visit this year, and what better time to escape…

NEON

I never thought in my wildest dreams that neon would come back around. For me, it represents the luminous tights, bright green tutu’s and nerd glasses phase of my life which quite frankly, still gives me nightmares to this day. How can something that was so tragic (I still can’t believe my parents actually let…

Burberry on a budget

Being a lowly student and a self-confessed bargain lover, it’s clear that designer brands and I don’t exactly have the strongest relationship. In other words, I am basically a designer shopping virgin. Of course, it would be great to be able to afford high-end items on the regular like the Instagram fashionistas of today, but…
