This past week or so has been a period of change for me. I've been slowly trying to find myself again - I've felt lost amongst a sea of Bali bikini photos, beautifully shot streets style, and PR events I couldn't make. I've been clinging onto this vice of comparison, and the sudden consciousness of that has been a weight lifted from my shoulders.

I feel like for a really long time, this comparison to others has completely taken over my life and my creativity. I've found myself so off-track, and panicking over what to produce and how to produce it. I've dabbled in so many different styles, yet it's always left me feeling deflated. There's always something making me think my work isn't as good, and up to scratch, as everyone else's.

I don't live in a picturesque city. There are no beautiful backdrops on my door step. It takes a lot of time to produce content if I'm choosing to shoot outdoors - time that I no longer have a lot of and that has lately been consumed by a lot of ups and downs in my own life.

This whole thing has become so obsessive to me. I can spend hours planning out an Instagram feed and 'stalking' other people to see if my work is as good as theirs. It's driven me mad - mad to the point where it's affected my joy of my job, as well as my mental health.

So, with that in mind, I'm trying to strip it back. I'm trying to focus on me, solely me, and what I'm good at. It may not be the most 'perfect' content, but it's mine. It's personal to me, my own lifestyle and I enjoy creating it.

I think that with the pressures of social media these days, it can be hard not to lose yourself. It's so difficult not to be comparing yourself to everything else that's out there. But, I just want my life to feel more lighthearted again. I just want to go back to creating what I love and enjoy doing it at the same time.

I'm just going to do 'Me', and I hope that's okay.

Reclaiming Myself From The Pressures Of Social Media

So, if you can't read the title of this post without singing 'Black & Gold' by Sam Sparro, then you're on my wavelength haha.

Anyway, hello guys, how are we all?

December is fast approaching, and honestly, it's kind of stressing me out. This is usually my favourite time of year - I love food, festivities and being around my favourite people - but something is looming over me this year that is just making the whole thing feel a little.. tense... I don't know. I think it's my incessant need to please people, and the idea that I currently have ZERO idea what to gift anyone this Christmas is driving me mad. But, alas, I'm sure all will be solved (and my bank account will be emptied *cries*).

It's still exciting that it's only 6 weeks away though (probably less by the time this goes live!). I'm really looking forward to celebrating and dancing the evenings away with a glass of wine in one hand and mince pie in the other.

With that being said, I'm all about getting dressed up over the festive season. I think it's just the perfect month to make yourself feel glamorous and fabulous, whilst feeling incredible merry!



DRESS - CLOSET LONDON [GIFTED] // RINGS - MEJURI, ANIA HAIE & THOMAS SABO [GIFTED]

A new dress entered my wardrobe this week and I'm absolutely head over heels in love with it. It's this stunning Black Stripe Long Sleeve Wrap Midi Dress from Closet London.

Now, if you've followed my blog for a long time then you know that Closet London were one of the very first brands I began working with back in 2015, so they hold a very close place in my heart. I've always loved their pieces - it's one of those perfect brands that just effortlessly elegant, yet on trend all at once - but, I have to say, this is my all-time favourite piece from them. I just think it's beautiful.

From the wrap front style, to the sunburst sleeve cuffs, it just fits me like a glove and I couldn't be happier with it.


I can't wait to wear this dress out over party season. I've collected some of my other favourite LBD's for you down below!

It's no secret that as winter rolls around, so does my ever-growing collection of knitwear. The temperature drops, and out come of cable knits and fluffy throw-ons, leaving me in a state of complete cosiness for the next 5 months.

The thing is however, I often find that styling knitwear grinds my creativity to a halt, leaving me a little lost for inspiration. I spend each day grabbing for a jumper, jeans and some boots and that's all there is to it. It's one of those things that comes with the cold weather... the laziness to style and the urgent need to be warm. 

I mean, sure, I know that if I sat there and really thought about an outfit, I could probably pull something a little more 'chic' together, but with 5am wake up calls, and windy, rainy weather to battle, I just don't have the time!

But, regardless, I've found a bit of a loop hole...




When it comes to knitwear, I usually like to play it safe with the typical neutral tones and basic black roll necks, but recently I've found myself grabbing more for colourful knits, with a bit of character and 'fun' to them - it's really helped spruce up my day-to-day looks.

This one I'm wearing here is a gem from Miss Selfridge. I absolutely love the combination of the baby blue, along with the tan brown details, and the over-sized harlequin pattern is just the perfect 'on trend' thing for this season. The high neckline is right up my street too. I'm always more in favour of a 'mensy' crew neckline than anything else.  

So, with this beautiful jumper in mind, I thought I'd pull together some of my other favourite jumpers that I've spotted recently and share them with you down below. Maybe it can help you feel more excited about your every day winter looks too!
