Why style transcends trends

I’ll be completely honest with you here. Despite being a full-time fashion and lifestyle blogger, I know very little about fashion. I wouldn’t consider myself trendy, nor particularly stylish and I truly believe I’ve made so many faux pas that I should win some kind of award. I will never let myself forget the time I turned up to a family outing at a garden centre in a black leather skirt, knee high fluffy boots, a feathered jumper with a sequin rabbit emblazoned on the front and an equally flamboyant headband. I thought I looked like Blair Waldorf. The pictures…

How to be your own Wonder Woman!

I’ve always been very hard on myself and for so long, I thought this was a positive attribute of mine. I believed that by not celebrating my successes and instead, pushing harder for more, I would motivate myself to achieve and be a better person. Tough love, as they say, is sometimes needed. However recently, I’ve come to the conclusion that while a little self-assessment is necessary, being consistently self-critical is actually counter-productive. It was a session with a therapist that opened my eyes to just how self-critical I actually am. “Don’t you think you deserve some kindness?,” I was…

Things my friends have taught me

I suppose it’s the cliche, as you grow older you begin to realise who your true friends are. But it’s true.

I’m by no means the perfect friend, but if I care about someone, I’ll help them no matter what. One of the qualities I pride myself on the most is that I’m loyal. But around the age of 18, I…

Winter passes in a blur of dehydrated skin, dark smoky eyes and (for me) a whole lot of concealer. So by the time summer comes around, I’m wanting to completely revamp my make-up bag and begin to bring back the glow. Because lets face it, if there’s any season we can attempt a Gigi Hadid esque dewy look, it’s when the sun is shining. So, in case you feel the same way, I wanted to introduce you to a few of my latest dressing table additions, which are helping me update my ‘everyday’ look to something a little more fresh and…

What to do in St Moritz If You’re not a skiier

As a location, St Moritz is synonymous with glamour, glitz and wealth. Renowned for being the winter playground of the rich and famous, it plays host to a number of sporting events, designer stores and award-winning restaurants – and it regularly welcomes Kate Moss, George Clooney, The Beckham’s and even royalty onto it’s neighbouring slopes. It’s certainly a place that’s always intrigued me that’s for sure. But as a relatively novice skier, I’d previously been too afraid to suggest a visit in case everyone else I found myself adventuring with were seasoned black-run enthusiasts. And with my luck, that would…
