Hello everyone, and happy bank holiday weekend! Today's post isn't going to be a wordy one, but I did want to share with you some of my favourite shirt-dress finds, to hopefully inspire some new picks for your S/S wardrobes this year. We all know I love a shirt and I also love a good dress, so the combination of the two is perfect for me. 

I was recently sent some gorgeous pieces by Sandro, including this lovely dress pictured above. It's just so perfect for those sunshiney days, strolling through the city (which I'm hoping we'll have more of soon *crosses fingers*). So, with this dress in mind, I thought I'd share some of my recent finds with you all so that you can get the look too!

Happy Shopping!

DRESS - SANDRO [GIFTED]

Last week was the time we've all been waiting for - it was the thing we'd been daydreaming about, planning for and wishing lockdown away over. Restrictions lifted and we were all able to escape our homes for the first time since Christmas, hallelujah!

I hadn't really planned much for that first week of freedom... to be honest, I was feeling a little apprehensive about the whole thing. The idea of heading back into normality was an odd idea after being stuck in the same day-to-day routine for months on end. I think we all began to feel that way as the 12th edged nearer and nearer, a lot of us unsure of how to ease ourselves back into things, but a week later, looking back at that first week of normality, I'm so glad I got myself out and about and enjoying the little things again.



BLOUSE - AUGUSTE [GIFTED] / TROUSERS - AUGUSTE [GIFTED]

I made plans with friends, catching up after months apart, had drinks in the sunshine and finally got to head back into my favourite place, Manchester. It was really nice to feel like things had almost never changed. I'd missed laughing with my pals and seeing somewhere other than the four walls of my bedroom, and we luckily got to have some lovely sunshine to accompany it all too. 

I mean, I still fully believe we've all got to take things at our own pace. If you're not keen on heading out just yet, there's no pressure too. I know that I definitely need some time at home to recoup from the excitement and just the change in my 'new normal' routine. I've got a couple of nice things planned for this week, but I'm still looking forward to my days WFH and being able to put my PJs on whenever I want!

It's just nice to feel like things are finally moving forward in a positive way. I'm excited to see what Summer brings and to potentially wave goodbye to lockdowns altogether.

I'm a homebody at heart. I love evenings in, candles lit, snug PJs on and a series set up and ready to hit play on Netflix. The last year has made me really appreciate those moments of relaxing- those moments of taking time for myself and settling down from a busy day, but it's also made me really appreciate feeling put-together and good about myself, even when I am simply at home in my PJs and not really doing a lot. 

I think we all saw the surge in popularity of loungewear sets over the last year - we all wanted to feel put-together even when remaining relaxed (and let's face it, sometimes lazy) at home all day. I love to think of my comfies as their own little outfit now - something that's comfortable yet still makes me feel good even when I'm covered in biscuit crumbs and on my 98th episode of Ru Paul's Drag Race.

PJ SET - MEEKA [GIFTED]

Today I thought I'd share with you some Spring PJ sets/loungewear that have caught my eye - pieces that give you that fabulous feeling, yet are the perfect thing to sit back and relax in. I mean, we all wanted to look as put-together as Blair Waldorf lounging around in her nightwear when we were watching Gossip Girl, right? 

Hopefully there's something here that catches your eye and can be a lovely addition to your evening routine to make you feel good through Spring/Summer!

As we head into the warmer months, I thought I'd share with you some of my favourite mid and maxi dresses that I've spotted during my online shopping scrolls. I love these kinds of dresses for Spring/Summer and ever since receiving this gorgeous Faithfull The Brand one, photographed above, I just can't resist the urge to want to skip through grassy fields, picnic basket in hand, and really embrace the sunshiney days (given that we actually get more the 3 or 4 of those this year...)

All that's on my mind right now is the potential sunshine-filled Summer days ahead. The idea of meeting friends outside, ice-cold ciders in hand, and a fabulous summer wardrobe to accompany the situation - it's all making me really excited for what lies ahead. I mean, I know there's no promise of Summer being this way, but it's really nice to feel hopeful for once and have something to look forward to.

Lately, I've found myself dealing with some kind of Stockholm Syndrome spending so much time working from my bedroom and never really having an escape, besides the occasional walk or two, of course. Don't get me wrong, I love working from home, left to my own devices to get creative, but after a year long period of it, I'm really starting miss my pals and life outside of the village I live in.


BLAZER - ASOS / TOP - ASOS [GIFTED] / SKIRT - NASTY GAL

I'm so ready to be reunited with Manchester again. I miss the Northern Quarter charm and those acquaintances that I bump into in bars and cafes, and I even miss the dreaded walk through Piccadilly Gardens, trying to swerve my way round the hustle and bustle. 

The life I'm daydreaming about post-lockdown seems completely out of reach at the moment, but I'm hopeful that as the months pass, it will become a reality and I'll be tipsily giggling with my friends in the sunshine soon. 

Sending love to you all and here's to a wonderful post-lockdown Summer!

Shaving is a choice for everyone, as it should be. Personally, I prefer to keep my legs, pits and wherever else shaved, smooth and soft, but it's always been a struggle to find the perfect product to help me do so. I've been on this life-long hunt (well at least since my teens) for a razor to tackle the job. You know, something that doesn't leave my legs patchy with those pesky untouchable hairs or that has me wincing at those tiny little shaving cuts. 

Then, incomes the Estrid Razor! These razors are made cruelty-free and fairly priced for womankind, and not just the glossy, front-page of a magazine kind of woman, I mean, ALL women. That's one of the first things I loved about Estrid, they're here for you whether you're someone who loves to rock their sassy leg stubble or someone who likes to feel like a silky, shiny dolphin - they celebrate women and I think that's something we always need more of.



When it came to unboxing my razor, I was so pleased to see that not only was the razor included, but also a wall holder, a travel case and an extra blade cartridge. The packaging was also beautifully designed, which always entices me too. 

I'm the kind of girl who is always lost for a place to leave my razors, just leaving them a-stray and then having my Mum ask me why there's a mountain of them filling up the shower because I forget to move them (ooops). I loved the process of having a wall holder - a safe and clean place for my razor to remain until it's next use. It stuck to wall of my shower so easily, and looks so neat and tidy too. No more mess for Hol!

I love that they come in such cute colours from lilac, to pink, to peach and yellow, and the travel case will be amazing as well once we're finally free to go on trips away again, or even just to pack in my bag to my boyfriend's house. 



My experience using the razor for the first time was great. It offered a lovely, smooth shave, gliding seamlessly across my legs and avoiding shaving bumps. The five-blade cartridge and the moisturizing strip worked really well, and that's on all... *ahem*... sensitive areas in need of a shave. It felt really luxurious to use in comparison to razors I've used previously - the design just gives a much more enjoyable experience overall. It allowed for me to have a few extra days shave-free too, which is always great!

It feels like I've stepped-up my shaving routine completely. From struggling to get to those fine blonde hairs on my knees, to having a stress-free shave that leaves me feeling silky smooth. It's just such a joy and ease to use this razor. 

The best part is, they're a vegan subscription service, which is perfect if you're looking for something easy to order that arrives straight to your doorstep.

Over the last few years I've fallen heavily in love with a neutral wardrobe (if you haven't been able to tell from the millions of beige outfits haha). I find that styling neutrals makes my wardrobe work so much more coherently and it allows me to mix and match so many different pieces together!

Whether it's an amazing blazer, knitted dress or sleek pair of boots/heels, I just find that you cannot go wrong with selecting neutral tones. In today's post I wanted to share with you some fabulous staples I've had my eye on, as well as some pieces tried and tested by yours truly!
