The Bloggers’ Market

#TheBloggersMarket

After what seems like forever away from my blog, I’m back with a clothes-shaped bang! I thought it would be best to kick things off with a super quick post telling you all about #TheBloggersMarket, a clothes sale in Camden this coming Saturday 31st put on by me and my gal pals Carrie, Lucy, Liv & Kristabel.

We’ve got clothes, shoes, accessories and more for sale in the prettiest of venues – check out the Facebook event for all of the information you need! Prices will be ‘oh my god how cheap!’ good, starting from 50p for accessories and a few pounds for clothes. Everything will be either brand spanking new or pre-loved items that need to go to a new home. There’ll also be cake from Lena Rose Bakery, hair styling by Joël and lots of time to chit chat with us all.

If you’re planning on making it down, please do let me know, I’d absolutely love to meet new faces! And stay tuned for a good old outfit post on here very soon : ) x

Christmas Comforts

I know the word Christmas has some pretty obvious connotations (over-eating, flavoured hot chocolate and cosy socks I’m lookin’ at you!) but I’ve also been getting busy with my own set of Christmassy things. For one, I’ve been letting myself sleep in just a little bit more, as I get up at 6am every weekday for work. That means a sleep-inducing combo of an eye mask (which is also super cute) and pillow spray whilst wearing a robin on my jumper (see below)- oh Christmas!

And because I’m the kind of girl that tends to forget to do the whole self-pampering thing (e.g. paint my nails properly so they don’t smudge) my hair gets forgotten, aside from the obvious fact that I know it’s on my head. The wonderful people over at TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe sent me a special bumper pack of goodies a while ago that I’ve been using, all wrapped up in their Matthew Williamson wash bag (potential last minute Christmas present?). I’ve also been getting in to the Christmas spirit with my ever so subtle Christmas jumper while wrapping presents in paper you might have spotted on my Instagram wrapping paper- the perfect unique gift!

And finishing on a sentimental note… My family is quite scattered around the world, so the best thing about being home properly over Christmas (with zero plans, hooray!) means getting in touch with my aunt in Italy, my uncle in Sweden, my other aunt in Canada (I won’t go on…) which always makes my mum so happy. Above every material thing over Christmas, the best part is hearing from family overseas that we can’t be with, and I guess that’s the most special part of Christmas- that and all of the food, obviously! ; ) x

Amsterdam: The ’70s Flares

What I Wore: Hat – Zara, Jumper – c/o Next (similar), Jeans – c/o Oasis, Bag – c/o Oasis, Shoes – Clarks X Orla Kiely, Faux fur scarf – New Look

Day two in Amsterdam pretty much consisted of a lot of walking, and I mean a lot. We opted for the healthiest (and best way to see the city) option of walking to everywhere we wanted to go instead of taking any form of public transport, which meant we were able to stop and snap away when a particularly cute shop caught our eye. We must have looked a little odd, all cameras in hand looking up and around us as we walked, but this was one of my favourite bits, because (and I don’t mean to be soppy) I had the best time just hanging out with my chums as we walked, talked (aka laughed lots) and snapped away.

And as you might have guessed from my first outfit from day one, I was heavily inspired by the ’70s when packing for this trip! But it seemed like the right time to wear my Oasis jeans- I’ve had them for a few months but have been waiting for the right outfit to wear it. Wearing platforms and a fedora also seemed like the most natural compliment to the jeans, and while I’m halfway between thinking flares might not be the most flattering on me, I’m still a pretty big fan of them regardless! x
