The Bargain Blazer

If you haven’t been living under a rock then you’ve probably noticed that blazers are all the rage at the moment. I mean, in terms of staple pieces, blazers have been timeless, but right now they’re hotter than ever. The smart-casual look is taking fashion bloggers by storm and I have seen so many styles…

Spa Weekend on the Spanish Border

So it appears that I am somewhat addicted to mountain getaways. Less than a week after my weekend skiing in Saint-Lary, I was packing my suitcase for another overnight stay in the Pyrenees. This time, I was heading to the pretty little country of Andorra! The saying goes that good things come in small packages, and…

Skiing in Saint-Lary

One of the best things about living in Toulouse is that I am only a mere few hours drive away from the Pyrenees. As someone who has been brought up in probably one of the flattest countries on earth, I have been so lucky to be able to spend time in the mountains whilst on my…

One hoodie, three outfits

During the winter months, I like to take inspiration from these oh so wise words from CHANEL: ‘luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury’. Now obviously I’m not going to be sporting Chanel on my blog any time soon, but hey, ‘luxury’ is what you make of it, and I say that luxury is…

Daytime styling: the satin dress

After purchasing this gorgeous satin dress in the Topshop sale last summer, I couldn’t believe my luck.

The first time I wore…

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. This year I fell into the former category and decided to head to the capital just a few days before Christmas. London at…
