Cordially Yours

I'm so, so happy cord is a thing right now- and if you're of the same mindset- you need to act fast as the key pieces are getting snapped up. The H&M suit I'm wearing is pretty much sold out everywhere (I stumbled upon mine in store- if you do happen to find it anywhere, then size down- I'm wearing an 8). Luckily, Mango have dropped their latest Committed Collection (which is, as always, sick), and they have some excellent corduroy pieces (yessss) including this blazer and these pants. (I also love love love this jacket and trouser combo). There are also some beaut higher-end versions around, most notably, this Acne number (matching pants here), which you've probably seen on Amanda Shadforth and drooled over. Is cord doing it for you this A/W? Are you ready to unleash your inner Annie Hall? Lemmie know x

I Don't Have A Boyfriend, But I Do Have Balenciaga

As tragic and deeply impoverished as my love life is, I ain't bovvered, coz I always have handbags. So, say hello to my new lil' baby/boyfriend-substitute- the Balenciaga Bazar Pouch. I love that it's not chic (in the basic sense of the word) and that most people will probably think 'what the sweet Jesus is she carrying around that stripey rectangle for?'. I also like that is clashes with almost everything and that it doesn't NOT text me back. Result. If you're thinking that it's cute but you might like another slightly lower-key colour-way then try this or this. (Dupe-wise....jump on this or this). Let me know if you're feeling the Bazar stripes (and also if you know any cute single guys with tattoos- thannnnnnx) xx

Straight To The Point

I don't think I've ever wanted a shoe more in my entire life, than the Balenciaga Knife Mule. I checked FarFetch everyday until I finally found a pair of Size 5s *victory dance*, and they are undoubtedly satin perfection. They actually seem to go with everything too, in a clashy clashy kinda way, but I've paired them here with some check pants. So, let's be real for second- satin mules aren't really ideal footwear for popping to Sainsbury's or hanging out at the pub, and such a beautiful shoe naturally comes with a hefty price tag. So far, the high street has been a leeeeetle bit slow to dupe these babies, but.....Jessica Buurman have come through with a copy, and if you want a reallllly cheap hit then try these. I deffo recommend the Real Deal though, if you can stretch to it. What's been your latest big ticket purchase? Are you as obsessed with Demna G as me? Lemmie know, catch you soon x

The Holiday Make Up Edit

Ain't gonna lie, I love being tanned. Most of the time I have to fake it, (with my beloved St. Tropez), but there's no doubt I definitely like to glow 24/7/365. So when Fragrance Direct recently hit me up to pick my fave products for a holiday make-up look, I was all over it before you could say 'Can you see my highlighter on the moon hun?'. Call me naive, but I had no clue that Fragrance Direct actually did make-up, I thought they just carried a super-huge selection of bargainous perfume. (Not even sure if bargainous is  a word but let's roll with it). But no! They do a gigantic choice of make-up too, including one of my fave brands Nars. If like me, you're cray for contouring til the cows come home, the Nars Multiple Bronzer should be your go-to. You can use it to do your regular Kim K Kontour, or you can also use it to do a tanned-all-over kinda face. To get your glow extra-luminous, whether you're on hols, returning from vacay or if you just like to shine bright like a diamond on the regs, you should deffo try the Nars Dual Intensity Blush. This product 100% does what it says on the tin. Fragrance Direct were also kind enough to send me a scent too- the beautiful Chloe Signature which I'm absolutely obsessed with. How's your glowy holiday face going? Let me know your faves for contouring and highlighting. Catch you soon x

Summer Luvin' With FarFetch

Despite Autumn approaching at a rapid rate, I'm not ready to give up on Summer just yet. Yes, I'm scanning New-Ins on the daily (speaking of new season drops, my most recent addiction is FarFetch's Designer Clothes New In section which I check every morning like an eager fashion beaver)- but back to summer for a hot minute- and this all white outfit. I just like the simplicity of a tee and a mini, which means I can then throw on whatever accessories take my mood. Nine times out of ten over the Summer I've gone for a straw basket, but this time around I added in my one true love- my Balenciaga Bazar. I can't recommend this bag enough- it's super-light, extremely roomy (you can even get loads in the Baby Bazar if you're looking for a more compact version of this beaut) and of course, it looks sick AF. But with my mind inevitably half into A/W the newest version of the Bazar is this incredible (and extremely tempting) Logo Bag. Is your sartorial mind in the current season or the season to come? Let me know if you're as confused as me! Catch you soon x
PS Don't forget to take a look at FarFetch's excellent editorial section featuring yours truly and a host of other amazing bloggers all talking about our fave travel destinations, and what we wear when we're there!

Interior Refresh With Desenio

 This year I've seriously considered a complete make-over for my flat, but then reality has sunk in when I've remembered that all my money basically goes on a) handbags and b) council tax. (You feel me?) So, being is desperate need of an economical way to update the place I call home, my mind instantly turned to prints and posters. I'd seen some amazing ones flying round the blogosphere by Desenio, and I was all set to purchase with one of their incred blogger discount codes when they fortuitously contacted me for a collab (result!).
SHOP THE LOOK



The selection Desenio have is huge (and you can also rather handily buy frames from them too), so whilst browsing is fun, if you need to narrow things down these are the prints I went for:

HONEYBELLE X HOUSE OF SUNNY

I've been a long time fan of House Of Sunny. Their pared down aesthetic with a high-fashion twist is totally up my street; so I was buzzing when they recently hit me up to style some pieces from their amazing Vol 09 Collection. I went for the Stripp Tunic Top and the matching Side Popper Pants. Both pieces are a dream. The fabric is weighty and drapes in the right way and basically makes you feel as cool AF. So few brands embrace both a boyish sensibility and more unusual feminine details, but House Of Sunny definitely have the formula down. Are you a fan of the label? Let me know, catch you soon x

The Mango Obsession

No, we're not talking fruit, but- surprise surprise- clothes. Mango have actually always slayed- albeit- in a slightly more under the radar way than Zara; but this season they've really upped their game with the phenomenal Committed Collection. This low-key selection of neutrals in a bleached-out palette has basically got me wanting to gambol through a field of straw (and trust me when I say I'm usually thoroughly devoted to my sofa). Drawing on the amazing work of Simon Jacquemus (I die) and Stella McCartney's SS17 Collection, every single piece will give you major summer vibes. I went for the paperbag-waist pants which I adore, but these palazzo pants are equally insane. Mango's shoe-game is also incredibly strong RN, and I recently picked up these white leather flats which may just win the medal for the most comfortable shoe of all-time, (and may also just be a teeny bit similar to this very expensive, very beautiful original). You feeling Mango this season?  Let me know, catch you soon x

The Pierce Bag

I've been a bag obsessive since Day One. If I look back at my childhood pictures there I am, strutting about the place with a handbag hanging off my arm- and I think it's fair to say- nothing much has changed. I hadn't actually been considering The Pierce Bag until my friend Lauren from Fashion Panic got hers. And like a proper annoying stalky Single White Female weirdo- from that moment on- I decided that I absolutely needed one in my life. Thus the surfing and searching began. I did Netaporter, I did MyTheresa, and then- it happened- a beautiful discount code for Matches landed in my inbox. Yassss, there is a god (I cried), and she obviously digs on handbags. The big decision was the colour. I ruled out The Black straight away coz I already have a lot of black babies in my life, (as it were). The Navy is so bomb, but for me a little difficult footwear-wise (do you go matchy-matchy or clashy-clashy?); so I went for The Tan. My shopping experience with Matches was super-smooth (I asked the online stylist a couple of questions before I leapt and she was a dream). I'm so so happy with this new addition to the fam, and I have to give props to J-Dubs himself for creating It Bag after It Bag for his own line and for Loewe too. (Whatever 'It' is, he's got it). You feeling the Pierce bag? Let me know, catch you soon x

Honeybelle x Lee

Like most of us, I'm obsessed with denim, and pretty much wear it 24/7/365. So when Lee hit me up recently to style some of their range I was all over it. The first pieces I picked were the classic Rider Jackets. The black one I paired with my fave Adidas trackpants and the blue I teamed with these amazing cream kick flares from Zara (similar designer ones here or cheaper versions here). For jeans I went for the Scarlett Cropped Skinny (in black) which have a useful ankle-zip which you can dial up or down according to your mood or outfit or both. I also chose the Elly Slim Straight Jeans to style. These are what I call a 'proper' pair of jeans- they hold you in (deffo necessary in my case) but are still comfy, I put them with this cute long sleeved tee from Olive & Frank (similar here) and a pair of Vans.

I also recently bought this incred H&M drawstring top which I wore with my final jeans choice the Scarlett High Waist Skinny. These skinnies are literally the most comfortable jeans everrrrr. You know the way most skinnies start to cut off your circulation after a couple of hours (or a big lunch, lolz)? Well, these don't- #winning. What are your fave jeans RN? And which of these looks are you feeling? (If any!) Lemmie know, catch you soon x
