Last but not least in this years Surviving Summer Series, is everything Yellow! Yellow is on everyone's radars this year, and it's one of my favourite colours to wear in summer (we all know how much I love my lemon tulle skirt, and yellow rose earrings!).
My love of cat-eye shades is on record going back many many years, and I’m constantly falling in love with new styles each and every season. If you’ve seen this post, then you’ll be familiar with my two favourite pairs by Ralph by Ralph Lauren.
We may not get much sun here in Scotland so in Summer we tend to jump on a flight and take holidays wherever the sun is shining, and the cocktails are icy-cold! This season, sun hats are big and bold and have a lot to say for themselves. Style these hats with a classic, retro swimsuit for a day on the beach, or with a maxi dress with some oversized shades if you’re in the mood for a picnic instead.
If the heat and humidity is getting you down, then it's time to step up and make a statement, and what better way to make a statement this summer than with some bright prints and funky florals!
Somehow, the colour scheme for the post has ended up being very green. I don't particular ever decorate with green, but hey, there ya go! Anyway, I mentioned in this post (and then again in this post, because hell, why not?) that Ben and I are moving soon! Not only are we moving, but we’re consolidating (i.e. … Continue reading Decorating on a Budget: A Guide for Beginners on Where to Shop and What to Buy
When I was a youngin’ I decided to have some artwork inked onto my body. No big deal, right? This was the early 00’s afterall, when tattoos still weren’t a common thing but were starting to become far more mainstream. Day by day more people were getting tattoos and piercings, and the industry was definitely … Continue reading Tattoo Removal: The Good, The Bad, & the Painful!
The last two weeks I’ve had the joy of sitting at home doing very little, other than heading into town to attend two interviews during my first week off. It’s been bliss! My most recent contract (you know, the one with the stress) came to its conclusion the other week, so I decided to have … Continue reading How to Dress to Impress (for an interview)
This week’s Wishlist Wednesday was going to be named “Happy Mule Year”, however I absolutely struggled to find any of this season’s Mules that I liked, so I had to scrap the idea entirely. Now, I am not saying Mules are ugly shoes I general, but this seasons Mules are all being designed with chunky … Continue reading Colouful Courts
Welcome to this Wednesday’ Wishlist which of course involves shoes. This weeks’ wishlist is inspired by the recent purchase of the recent purchase of these Miss KG Florrie Heels which I have been coveting forever. Thanks to my favourite online shoe store, I was able to pick them up at £30 down from £80! Ok, … Continue reading A Soft Spot for Polka Dots
We’ve all done it, left the house feeling great, only to walk past our reflection and realise something, somehow, how gone tragically wrong – whether it’s a piece of lettuce in our teeth, tissue remnants from the washing machine, or a less than flattering silhouette, knowing that something isn’t quite right with how we are … Continue reading How to Feel & Look Your Best When Leaving the House
It’s sale season which means I have been endlessly pouring over my favourite websites looking for the prettiest, shiniest things that I absolutely must have. However, I am currently on a shopping/spending ban as my current contract is about to end which means no more “me” shopping until I secure my next role. This has … Continue reading Rose Gold Heels
This morning whilst hurrying off to my train, having just kissed both Ben and Maia goodbye for the day, I quickly peeked out the window of my top-floor flat to check on the weather, only to see a wee red fox sauntering across my neighbour’s lawn in the gentle post-dawn light. I stopped to watch … Continue reading For Fox Sake!
I currently have some gluten free dough to make naan bread rising in the kitchen (with the radiator on, because my kitchen is incredibly cold today despite its sunny aspect), my sheets are hanging out to dry. Ben will be over later tonight after work and I’m making us a delicious curry which I’ll be … Continue reading Nail’d It
A few years ago one of my friends asked what foundation I was wearing, as my skin looked “flawless”. When I responded that I wasn’t actually wearing any makeup at all, let alone foundation, I was quizzed about exactly how I managed to get my skin so spotless, smooth and glowing. Now, I have been … Continue reading How to Maintain Beautiful Skin
As someone with ultra-sensitive skin, I am always reluctant to spend money on products that promise to be “the one”, when in fact they are “the wrong one”. I first saw this scrub on YouTube a few years ago and have been using this scrub ever since – it is completely natural with no harsh … Continue reading Beauty: 5 ingredient all natural face scrub
