I never finish anyt-

I thought I'd write a little ode to me never finishing anything, or more specifically, never finishing anything I commit to online.

Now I’m actually a person who usually, once committed to something, will never leave it half finished. I stuck out a foundation diploma that I hated every bloody minute of, stayed with an ex I should’ve left sooner for eight whole years, will always clean a room within an inch of it’s life and never just spring clean, and have even had the same car since I was 17. I’m not sure if I’m just really sentimental, or just hate quitting something I’ve dedicated time or effort to.

In essence I don’t really know what the point in this blog post was. I think it might have been to express some frustration I have with my own motivation when it comes to my blog, and content in general. For example, if you’re a long term reader you may remember some of the many series I’ve started on this blog. There was a Sunday update at one point many moons ago, then monthly favourites and most recently - ‘The Weekly Edit’. I managed three posts, not even all on time and then I gave up. I gave up because a) I didn’t think anyone was finding them useful and b) I think my motivation behind sticking with something is if I, or someone else is benefitting from it, or it makes life easier, or is something I simply can’t avoid doing and I don’t think any fitted those categories.

I often find that I have all these great ideas when it comes to shooting or writing, and they either never come off or they don’t come out as planned and then I get fed up with myself. So really, I need to stop putting so much pressure on myself to live up to expectations I can’t always meet.

I think what I need to take from this, is while I can’t commit to certain pressures and promise content I can’t create, I don’t need to. I can create as I can and wish and so can you. So many people I know who work in this industry are struggling with keeping up with posting schedules and succumbing to the pressure of three Instagram’s a day and two videos a week but are unhappy with what they’re creating and that’s entirely not why any of us started this! There’s no worse content than forced content (it’s always pretty obvious) so I think we all just need to take a step back.

This is my career and I do by all means take it seriously and work bloody hard but some times we all just need a little break from the constant online life.

So here’s to creating content I love, as and when I can and hopefully that in itself will motivate me to create more often. Hope you enjoyed this random word vomit, I’ve had a wine.

swimwear favourites

Summer in the UK might be on it’s way out, but that doesn’t mean we’re not heading off abroad. Kim and I have just booked a trip to Lisbon for the end of September and we’re hoping for early 20s in terms of temperature, so there’s still a hope for some bikini action. We’re also planning to do Bali in November so I’m keeping my eyes peeled.

Shop my favourites below - let me know of any upcoming trips too as I like to live vicariously through other people.

a city guide: brooklyn, NYC

On our recent trip to New York we chose to stay in Williamsburg as opposed to Manhattan and I can honestly say it was such a great decision! Brooklyn is a really amazing place, worth a visit on it’s own is definitely worthy of a post.


The Hoxton, Wythe Ave

First up, our hotel. I adore The Hoxton hotels and having stayed in their London and Paris locations I knew it had to be our choice in NY. It’s fairly new and really well located, about 7 mins from the nearest subway station. Our room was little but had everything we needed. We also got upgraded to a Manhattan view so that definitely made the size more than ok. The hotel also has a beautiful restaurant downstairs, as well as a super cool lobby to work or just grab a coffee in. We did pop into their bar which was lovely and knows their way around a good whiskey sour.

Cafe Colette,

After running out of places we fancied in Manhattan, we thought we’d stay local and fell into Colette. It’s a compact little place, with a real European feel (think vintage Paris) plus they do an amazing French toast. I think anywhere that deems an entire branch of cherry blossom as reasonable decoration is a place for me.



I was actually shooting with Sammi when she mentioned here, only for it to be a stones throw from our hotel. Aland is a really cool concept type store full of Asian brands that we don’t tend to see much in the UK. It also has a tonne of really aesthetically pleasing skincare and is all really reasonably priced.

Sunday in Brooklyn,

Another brunch spot! This one a little further from our hotel, but still so great. A real mixed vibe going on inside, and not too long of a queue - Sunday was perfect for grazing on 11am cocktails and having a slow morning. I got the chorizo hash and it was f-a-b.


The Great Eros, Wythe Ave

Again, a few steps from the hotel (told you, great location) we found this little lingerie shop tucked away. If you know me then you’ll know I’m lingerie obsessed and screamed when I found this little place. It’s all designed in Brooklyn and made in Italy using the most amazing lace and meshes. Not cheap, but a beautiful store stocking some really great pants.


Milk Bar, Williamsburg

Not strictly a Brooklyn-only place but genuinely my favourite place in NY. I don’t have that much of a sweet tooth but this place just gets me. You need to try their cereal flavoured soft serve and confetti cookies. I bought back five and would’ve carted the ice cream over with me too if it was possible. Crack Pie (yep) is their best seller but Kim and I found it a bit *too* sweet as it’s literally just butter and sugar but it might be your kind of thing.

Honourable BK and NY mentions; Joe’s Pizza. The Spiderman pizza place, as Kim told me 10347 times but genuinely the best slice we had in NYC. I actually had it for breakfast one day. Mr Purple was also a super fun bar on the LES with a really great view from the roof. Kinfolk bar near the hotel was lovely too. We grabbed a cocktail during the day and the doors were open with the sunshine streaming in.

some recent outfits

Thought I’d share some of my recent outfits with you guys here as I often find it hard to shoot full looks for the blog nowadays yet share content on Instagram every day - or try to.

Outfit one; Barcelona day time


Outfit two; swimwear at Soho Farmhouse


Outfit three; casual day outfit in Barcelona


Outfit four; all white


Outfit five; linen midi


So lately I’ve not been able to post as often as I’d like due to the bloody house move but I have been really enjoying more neutral tones and darker backgrounds. I’ve tried to link everything below the picture or similar if it’s out of stock!

I’m also loving big ugly dad sandals too. I think they’re the perfect remedy when it comes to ‘dressing down’ a prettier dress. I think it works with my tattoos and piercings to make it look a big rougher around the edges. What are you thoughts on ugly sandals?

how to holiday on the amalfi coast
amalfi .jpg

This post has taken me a year to write, but better late than never eh!

I found when I visited the Amalfi coast that there wasn’t much practical information online and I’m definitely someone who worries about how often buses run and where I can go to a supermarket so this is for my fellow over-planners. Without further a-do, my top tips;

  1. Hire a car. SO do this if possible. It made our trip so much easier. The buses are honestly awful and come every 2 hours or essentially whenever they fancy. It’s also not very clear where they go, and naturally Citymapper doesn’t work there so just get a car. It’s a bit scary to drive at first but as long as you’re careful and confident you’ll be fine.

  2. Everywhere is good to eat. Being half Italian I might be a bit biased but honestly 99% of places are absolutely great. There are lots of family run restaurants dotted around and they all know a good bowl of pasta like the back of their hand so trust your gut and try literally anywhere.

  3. Visit Praiano. I was so set on getting ‘that’ photo on Positano beach but it was so expensive due to the area being a tourist trap. We actually found a gorgeous little beach in a town between Sorrento and Positano called Praiano and it was honestly the highlight of my trip. Quiet and beautiful with an amazing restaurant on the edge of the water, we ate there every day!


4. Take some comfortable shoes. Don’t assume because you’re going to the beach for the day you’ll only need flip flops. Big mistake! We had to park over a mile away as there’s very few designated car parks and then you essentially have to scale down the side of a mountain in order to get to a beach.

5. Do stop at the random stalls and shops. You can get hand painted crockery everywhere but there are some really cool ceramic shops where you can meet the artist, as well as old Italians selling limonata along the side of the roads while you’re driving into the towns. Definitely worth a look and you’re helping out a local!

6. Make your own decisions, don’t base it all on Pinterest! I know you’re reading a blog post but I went to a few places that the internet told me were beautiful only to find they’d been cleverly edited (some even had tourists removed, the sea cleaned etc!) to look a million times nicer than they actually were. Fiordo di Furore was one of these.

7. The nearest airport is Naples, which is another reason to hire a car. Hiring a car in itself is a whole world of stress but entirely worth it in my opinion! I believe there are bus transfers but essentially this tip is to make sure you plan ahead and ensure you can get to the coast when you land.

I honestly can’t recommend a trip to Amalfi more, just do your research and go prepared! It’s such a beautiful place and lets face it, the food alone is worth the flight.

Let me know if you go and if you have any other tips!

Thought a photo of us was fitting

Thought a photo of us was fitting

Hi friends! How are you all? It’s been a while, hasn’t it?

Where should I start? Well, I have a new website! I don’t know if you’ll be able to see much different as who even looks at peoples’ site design. I now have a fancy page for my work, titled ‘portfolio’ and have updated the layout to make it a little easier for you guys to shop my outfits and things I’m fancyin’.

Next up, I’m moving in with Kim! I’ve mentioned it here before (I think) but I’ll be moving into his current flat after a little change around of furniture etc but it’s all very exciting. I’ve honestly gone homeware mad, I think it’s driving Kim insane but hopefully it’ll mean some lovely content over here. I’d love to vlog the move but it’s going to be a little bit all over the place as we don’t have a set move in date, so we’ll see how it goes.

Let me know if there’s anything specific you want to see from me, I’d love to know! I’m thinking of doing room-by-room blog posts as well as getting back to some old school outfit posts as I really do miss blogging as it was in 2012.
