    Darla, (a GORGEOUS clothing brand!) (gifted)

    Hello! How are you on this rather dreary day? It’s certainly not the summer we had last year but oh well! (We British really do always have to talk about the weather… guilty). Anyway, the lack of summer is not what I am here to discuss… What I am talking about today is a lovely clothing brand called Darla. Now let’s get this out of the way from the start, I contacted the brand and they said they would send me out an item for free if I were to do a review. I wouldn’t have sent them a message if I didn’t like their items, so that’s hopefully enough…

    Cruelty Free – Have I given in?

    Hello people! How are you all doing today? It’s finally the weekend which is fantastic. I hope you all have nice plans, whether it be doing nothing or the complete opposite! At least we now have something which vaguely resembles summer… Anyway, what I wanted to write about today is really a sort of update on how I am getting on as a cruelty free makeup user. If you haven’t already seen my first post, then you can read about my change over here: Why I’m now a cruelty free blogger. A few weeks ago, I decided enough was enough and that I would make the switch over to animal…

    Why I’m so awkward at taking outfit shots

    Hello, hello, hello! I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’ve started doing a lot more fashion blogging. I’m actually really enjoying it! I never thought of myself as ever stepping into this niche, but I just thought to myself, why not? I think it is nice to be able to not categorise yourself, as such, but to be able to post what you want to. That’s what I enjoy most about blogging, is having this little space where I can just ramble about whatever! Sorry everyone… Outfit shots… What I wanted to talk about specifically today is the actual taking of outfit shots. This is the main reason why…

    I’ve never felt cool enough for jumpsuits…

    Hello lovely people! What did you make of the sunshine over the Easter bank holiday weekend!? Completely unexpected, but I did enjoy it very much. I think I have a love/hate relationship with the summer, sometimes it just is that bit too hot, I know that’s an unpopular opinion, but how could I not complain about the weather – I am British…! Anyway, the reason I’m talking about the sunshine, is because it led me to do another outfit of the day type post. Today I am wearing a jumpsuit, which is completely different and ‘out there’ for me! I’m not sure about you, but my go to outfit is…

    First Outfit of the Day Post!

    Hello! 👋🏻 How are you doing today? I’d like to know how your week has been and 1 highlight from it! Today’s post… I’m doing a slightly different post from normal (well for me anyway). I’ve never been that good at doing outfit shots. Partly because I am lacking a photo wiz partner to take some nice photos for me (that comes as part of the job description for guys now!), but also because I always feel so awkward doing them! I’m not really sure how you’re meant to pose, and all the fashion bloggers that do these photos look so much cooler than me! Anyway, enough of that. Today…
