The devastating impact of fast fashion

I’ve been thinking a lot about the sustainability of our fashion consumption over the last few months. As someone with a small amount of social influence i’ve become more and more conscious about the way I consume fashion in order to produce new content for my myself, my followers and brands I work with. I’ve aways loved fashion and style but the rise in social media as a platform for marketing and the constant need to consume content has I believe, intrinsically changed the way we view and consume fashion. Clothing has always had an affect on a person both…

Palermo | Sicily

Palermo has been high on my bucket list for ages. As the capital of the beautiful Italian island of Sicily it naturally peaked my interest but seeing the amazing street food and culinary scene on multiple travel/food programs over the past few years further confirmed my need to check it out – asap. We landed in Palermo in early October for two days of exploring at the beginning of our 10 day trip around Sicily. The weather didn’t disappoint and at 28 degrees was actually a little bit too hot for city exploring. I was really excited to get to…

With Jean

I thought I’d write a post on one of my favourite brands of the moment – With Jean.

As I own three of their dresses, all in different styles, im hoping this post can offer some advice if you’re in the market for one of their pieces. So firstly, I own mediums in all three of my dresses.…

That was untill I met my boyfriend who has had a very different upbringing to me, whose parents are still together, and happy, after 42 years of marriage. He has always been sure that marriage is…

Gdansk On Film

I’m writing this blog post on Tuesday evening, having just landed back from Poland yesterday evening, and couldn’t wait to check out the film I’d taken during our trip and transport myself back to the beautiful city of Gdansk. Earlier this year I snagged some really cheap flights for my boyfriends Birthday after my housemate had suggested I take him to Gdansk over Warsaw (which was my original plan). I knew very little about the city but I love nothing more than a good travel recommendation and am so glad I took her advice; we spent an amazing three days…

Summer Dressing

One of the things I love about England are the seasons, unlike other countries we get four distinct seasons (although admittedly some can be longer than we’d like..) which means four very different types of weather to dress for. This summer i’m loving long flowy skirts, basket bags and printed dresses, here a few of the brands and pieces i’m crushing on this summer (old and new loves alike). The Kate Dress The Valentina Dress Sandals Basket Bag Realisation Par I have eternal love for Realisation Par, it’s honestly one of my favourite dress brands out there. I can’t get…
