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.

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

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?

ARKET

(gifted)

I'm really trying to get into the habit of posting more here - even if it's just little snippets. It became difficult in a world where it felt like you needed to have something to say, but sometimes I just like sharing pictures.

Either way, this is a new Arket dress I was kindly gifted so I decided to shoot it alone indoors. I recently got a new camera and it's become fun to self-shoot again so I thought I'd share the results. As always, you can shop the dress

here

.

Finally we're off to NYC and then Tulum as of tomorrow so hopefully I can create some pretty things to share with you when I'm back! I'm always full of good intentions so it'll be bloody interesting to see if I carry them out.

Ooh and I've also got a new video

here

, so feel free to have a nosy. It's a Summer haul. 

Speak soon, G

Recently the blogging world seems full of contradicting rules on how you should live your life and wronging people for doing differently. Firstly I’m going to put out there that I am entirely of a “live and let live” mindset, providing no one is getting hurt etc. 

It seems that you can’t do right for doing wrong at present. You can’t have too many luxury pieces, as your lifestyle is unattainable and may upset people who can’t afford it. You can’t only wear cheap brands as that’s not eco friendly. You have to be vocal about every issue, but have a non argumentative stand point on it, to avoiding upsetting anyone. 

As I said, I’m very much of a live and let live kind of guy. I’m obviously aware of most political, ethical, and ~everything in between~ issues and have my opinions on it but that's for another post!

I started blogging because I had wanted to get into the fashion industry since I was about seven years old and it gave me a platform to discuss what I loved. I never realised the responsibility that came with it. I don't think many of us 

foresaw

 'having a voice' and few know quite what to do with it!

I often feel I can’t celebrate any success without fear of making someone else feel guilty for being at a different stage in their life, or simply on an alternate path etc. I recently bought a new handbag after wanting it for so long I lost count, and yet I feel that I need a justification for doing so. Is I wanted it, saved for it and bought it not enough?

Sites like gurugossip seem to thrive on people living their best life, or blow the smallest mistake out of proportion. It's bloody exhausting! A lot of people seemingly despise people making money through blogging, and I'm not sure if it comes from a place of jealousy or simply misunderstanding but it's becoming a dated way of thinking. Every year when Black Friday is on the approach I simply wait for the snide remarks on affiliate links etc. It's tiring.

Bringing it back to basics, blogging is a lot of people’s jobs. Which requires making money. “Swipe up” stories, affiliate links and crazy posts on Black Friday are people’s income - it’s how I pay my rent, insure my car and do my food shopping. While I wholly believe that everyone needs to be both self aware, and aware of current issues both locally and globally, I do think we are simply allowed to pull it back to sharing something because we enjoy it every once in a while without fear of backlash. 

We are all in different stages of our lives, in different financial situation etc - the list goes on - but part of being an adult is recognising that, and choosing to digest what works for you. Whether that be following someone for their sense of style, their political views or just because you like their hair, take what you need from it and leave it at that. I think we are all looking for something in everything, when sometimes an image really is just an image.

What do you think? I'm pants at putting my 

thoughts

 into words so I hope this makes some sense!

Happy nearly Valentine's Day friends! Now I know it might be seen as an excuse for corporations to make more money, or even make single people feel guilty but I have to admit that I do have a soft spot for the 14th Feb.

Not only is it two short weeks after my birthday, it's also an excuse to buy some new lingerie - whether it's for a special someone or just to feel *flames emoji* for yourself,  as that's important too.

So with that in mind, I've put together a few of my favourite pieces from places you might be slightly less likely to think of here on the blog, and then a haul of ASOS and Topshop pieces on my Youtube channel, which you can find here.

Some of my favourite brands are ones that I've found on Instagram, namely Hopeless Lingerie and Love Stories. Sadly neither are UK based but both deliver here so definitely worth a look! I stocked up on all things LS whilst I was in Amsterdam as they have an outlet there too.

Shop the post, and some other favourites:

!function(d,s,id){var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? 'http' : 'https';if(!d.getElementById(id)) {e = d.createElement(s);e.id = id;e.src = p + '://' + 'widgets.rewardstyle.com' + '/js/shopthepost.js';d.body.appendChild(e);}if(typeof window.__stp === 'object') if(d.readyState === 'complete') {window.__stp.init();}}(document, 'script', 'shopthepost-script');

URBAN OUTFITTERS

AND OTHER STORIES

jumper, STRADIVARIUS boots (

similar

), CÉLINE bag

I promised I'd do another outfit post soon, so here I am, before the year is out. I get pretty sad because I often feel like there's no place for blog any more, and few people take the time out to read them now. I really miss both blogging and finding the time to read more, so if you have any faves please do send them my way.

In other news, this outfit was a few weeks ago when it wasn't positively arctic - hence the lack of coat. I'm struggling to find a place for these satin skirts now it's so chilly. I don't think they suit tights or taller boots so I'm at a bit of a loss, any ideas?

Shop the post:

!function(d,s,id){var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? 'http' : 'https';if(!d.getElementById(id)) {e = d.createElement(s);e.id = id;e.src = p + '://' + 'widgets.rewardstyle.com' + '/js/shopthepost.js';d.body.appendChild(e);}if(typeof window.__stp === 'object') if(d.readyState === 'complete') {window.__stp.init();}}(document, 'script', 'shopthepost-script');

how to be savvy on Black Friday and my picks



So Black Friday - it's on lads. I try and use it for useful purposes, which I'm going to explain in this post for ya, as well as show you a few of my favourite pieces! I've also strewn a few little shoppable banners throughout the post so go wild!

Hover over the above edit to shop, or see the widgets throughout the post.


ASOS

Mango



1. Only buy what you would full price
It's entirely not a bargain if you wouldn't have thought about purchasing it in the first place. Think carefully before you impulse buy and make sure you'll get your wear out of it. I like to see if it would go with at least four outfits before I purchase.

2. Use it for Christmas presents!
Black Friday is great for treating yourself, but also fab for sorting those Christmas presents (fairly) early! I always buy for my sisters, as well as my Mum as they're pretty hard to buy for full price and it's nicer to be able to get a bit more for your money!

3. It's great to get furniture/bigger items you've been saving for
Perfect if you've just moved etc, but with retailers such as MADE offering discounts - why wait?! Items such as furniture don't often get reduced as they're not seasonal so consider buying whilst the discount is high.

4. See if any luxury items on your wishlist are reduced
Again, make sure you wanted it in the first place but BF is a great time to make that big purchase you've been saving for. A new handbag, or a pair of shoes might have a couple of hundred pounds off, which is a huge saving for anyone!

a chat
Copenhagen Copenhagen
PIXIE MARKET skirt, ASOS jumper*, CONVERSE trainers, CÉLINE bag, CÉLINE sunglasses, ALL SAINTS leather jacket

Hi guys! Been a hot minute since I just had a chat with you all, and I feel like I've got so much to say so this will either be really long winded, or not. We shall see.

So, what's new with me? Nothing much has changed since my last update (here). I'm still very much loved up with my lovely, super, fab boyfriend. I have an inane fear of mentioning him, or how happy I am for fear that something will go wrong and I'll have to announce I'm single again lol but that being said, I really don't think that's on the cards with this one. He's a real good egg and I think I just need to chill the fuck out and enjoy what's going on. We've just booked New York for March, followed by a week in Tulum and I can't wait!

We also just got back from Copenhagen which was an absolute dream weekend. We did lots of eating, drinking and a little cycling, and naturally I vlogged the entire trip so that'll be up on Sunday for ya!

Speaking of YouTube, I've actually been trying to get some more content up as I do really enjoy it. I just find it hard to find a place for what I want to create, as well as finding the time and skill to make what I have in my head. I'd love if you had a little look, or even subscribe ya know...

I'm also really honing in on what I want to wear and creating a space that I love alongside that. I am going through a major cull of my wardrobe, furniture and general house so that I can live in a slightly more minimal space, and have a more 'staple' type wardrobe. I've come to the resolution that I'm not happy with clutter and extreme mass of stuff. That's not for a weird spiritual reason, or anything else lame. I'm just simply a bit fed up of what I have and how much I have of it. I'm also absolutely obsessing over Arket at the moment, which is late to the party but you know. Better late than never. 
Off the back of that, a few of my pals and I are hoping to hold a big sale of some good bits during November so keep your eyes peeled for that!

Lastly worth noting, I am going to try a keto diet. It's no secret I'm unhappy with how I look, as I talk about it all the time (more on that in a post soon) but above that my M.E goes into overdrive around this time of year and I've been recommended it by a few people off the back of this video I made. It sounds like a bloody nightmare given that I thrive on carbs and I am basically a walking cup of sugary tea, but if it a) helps me to slim down to where I'm happy again, and b) improves my CFS then I have to give it a go. The best part is that Kim is going to do it with me, told you he was fab.

Anyway, I think that's about it. What's going on with you guys?

Back with another outfit post, finally! How are you all? This is an outfit I actually wore a few months ago but with the turn of the weather I can see me reaching for it again ASAP. I have been really missing throwing jeans on - I feel so much more comfortable than I do in little dresses or shorts!

I styled my UGG Joni slides with a really casual, go-to outfit, and my favourite Levi's - which I cut down myself for the length. I genuinely adore the sandals as they've got a layer of cushioning in the sole, which unlike my other slides, makes them super comfy and wearable all day. Pepe has also taken a shine to them though, and I keep finding them separately spread around my flat. Naughty puppy. I'm also leaning towards more neutral colours instead of blues and blacks right now, so the beige-y pink tone is perfect for what I'm wearing this Summer.

UGG have popped a little page up about me and how I chose to wear my Joni slides too, which you can find here if you fancied a little look!
