THE ZATCHELS BACKPACK | SS17



Zatchels have significantly stood out to me over the years, they've truly developed a name for themselves. The high quality craftsmanship, leather materials, it's product longevity and vast range makes it a fun and wearable brand. Although they have so many shapes and sizes of bags to offer, I immediately swooned over the classic city backpacks. The one that stood out to me the most? Iced Coffee. Perfect for S/S 17, I decided to style it up for the upcoming season....


BABY PINK & FLARED SLEEVES




Flared sleeves and frilly fabrics are massively on trend right now. There's so much available on the high-street, it's difficult to filter down and find that 'unicorn' item that you absolutely, genuinely, utterly and completely love. You know the feeling. The 'I cannot leave this shop until it's MINE' kind of feeling. That's the exact sensation I felt, when I discovered a baby-pink gem in Zara....


MOTHERS DAY GIFT GUIDE 2017


Mothers day is always a time to show your mum how much you love and care about her. Forget about nipping to the petrol station to grab some cheap flowers. Make an effort this year, surprise her. Sometimes I feel like I take my mum for granted, that's why I always take her out to the occasional blogger event, make sure she has something extra special to open up on Christmas day or even just to hang out and go shopping. The one constant in your life is family, so it's important to make them feel special. So, I whipped up this last minute gift guide in the hopes of helping you choose what you get your Mum this Mothers Day....

HOW TO WEAR GINGHAM | SS17


Gingham. Love it or hate it, the stand-out print is back again for this S/S 17 season. I previously styled up the eccentric design back in 2014 (see the post here) and people seemed to really like it then, so I think it's great how the trend has come back around once more. Gingham itself can be quite tricky to style, but the picnic-friendly checks are great to pair with plainer tones. First, figure out what colours you like to wear the most, or feel like you can personally 'pull off' and feel comfortable with alongside the gingham print. For example, I opted for light denim and dashes of baby pink.....


THE BODYSHOP MOTHER'S DAY BLOGGER EVENT


The Body Shop are a favourite company of mine, that goes without saying. Their scents were around when my oldest sister was strutting around in her too-high killer heels and giving me a cheeky sip of her pineapple barcadi breezer. Oh, those were ignorantly bliss days. Until mum caught us! But I have so much love for my mum, she's an avid beauty lover and enjoys going out, so when The Body Shop contacted me about the Mothers Day bloggers event in Leeds, I just had to take her.....

WHAT I GOT FOR MY BIRTHDAY



Who doesn't love birthdays? It means eating loads of cake, getting to do fun things and just letting the day be all about you. I personally love giving presents more than receiving them, it definitely feels good to spread the love. But, I thought for once I would show you what I got for my 22nd birthday. (Obligatory 'I'm in no way bragging etc etc etc) It's just something I enjoy reading when pondering the internet, so I figured, why not? I was a lucky girl this year and I'm so so grateful.....
