Sightseeing in Oxford


Dress: Charity Shop | Shoes: Ebay | Bag: Old | Sunglasses: Oscar De La Renta

I always enjoy trips to Oxford, it's my other half's home town and so it's lovely when we get the chance to pop through to visit his family and this trip we managed to squeeze in a day of sightseeing. We did the MOMA, Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers.... I felt like a kid in a candy shop, particularly in the Pitt Rivers, I could happily have been left there all day, it's such a treasure trove!! 

Thanks for a lovely weekend EJ!

Combating Stress with Scents!


Did you know citrus scents have been found to reduce feelings of stress and anxiety? I love using citrus in my food, fragrances and beauty and thought I would share with you three of my favourite every day products that add a little zest into my life!



This daily moisturiser is full of skin-boosting ingredients that brighten your skin leaving it with a healthy glow. The formulation itself is really light weight (oil-free) and sits lovely underneath makeup. It also smells delicious....a  little bit like a Terry's chocolate orange...without the guilt. 


PHB Brightening Facial Cleanser

Just like the GinZing moisturiser, the formulation of this cleanser leaves your skin looking and feeling amazing. After using this to take my makeup off I actually still look human and could leave the house if I had to with just this on my skin! It's paraben free and made of 80% organic ingredients....I hiiiiiiighly recommend trying this out for yourselves!



I got this perfume for Christmas and it was the first time I'd actually smelt it, but as soon as I tried it I fell in love. What I really like about it is that it's great for both day and night, winter and summer....it's just an all around easy and beautiful perfume. As I mentioned at the beginning of the post, orange scents supposedly combat stress and promote happiness but I agree...when I put this on I immediately feel uplifted!

So there's my top three! What are your favourite citrus products to use? Have you used any of these before?

Thanks for reading!

Summer in Black and White



Top and Skirt: British Heart Foundation | Bag: Old | Shoes: Ebay | Sunglasses: Oscar De La Renta

This skirt has been my go-to wardrobe staple for the past few weeks and finding it for £3.99 in a local charity shop makes wearing it eeeeeven sweeter! It may be summer, but monochromatic looks are still my favourite no matter what time of year....besides I made the effort to shave my legs so I'm trying my best to be "summer ready..."

I managed to escape packing up my flat this morning to take a walk and stop off for some cake and coffee, I'll be moving at the end of the month and have lots of exciting news to share, but for now I have to keep quiet! 

Thanks for reading and don't forget you can keep up with me on Twitter and Instagram!

D.I.Y Inspiration: Embroidery Hoop


Hey guys! Throwing a bit of inspo your way today, now that I've finished Uni I have a little bit more time to spare doing things I love, including GETTING CREATIVE! Something on my to do list was to make an embroidery hoop for myself, I've made these as gifts before but never actually made one to hang in my home! 

They're so easy and  cost effective to make, I simply put together some words and shapes in Photoshop to the size I wanted and then lightly traced over them onto some white fabric with a pencil, then using a needle and some embroidery thread, began stitching! Easy peasy! It takes a few hours and is very therapeutic, I love crafts that you can pick up whenever you have a spare moment and embroidering is perfect for that!

The Perfect Dressing Gown: Tara Starlet



Kimono: Tara Starlet // Lingerie: Ann Summers (old)

If you're no stranger to this blog, you'll know I'm no stranger to all things vintage. Retro hair, clothing and makeup....I'm obsessed with it all and have been since I was young. So when I happened to stumble across the brand Tara Starlet the other month....I was as giddy as a kipper. Tara Starlet create clothing, lingerie and nightwear all made in Britain and stay true to vintage cuts and shapes but update them with the most delectable colours and bold prints. When I saw this kimono number in the sale I had to get it and I'm really glad I did, it's so soft and feminine and I love the colour. I love the romance of slipping into sultry nightwear....it might not keep me warm....but it keeps me looking bad ass...and a girl's gotta have her priorities in order.
