Charity Shop Finds

If you have read my blog for awhile, you will know that I have been working for a local charity (Prama) since last September, and I love it. I mainly run their social media accounts, whilst also working on marketing and general admin as well. The charity have several shops across Dorset, and I really enjoyed visiting them to take photos for the website and social media before lockdown. Our...

The 3 Jumpsuit Styles I’m Currently Loving

•Sponsored post featuring gifted clothing•  I admit, I have had a bit of a love hate relationship with jumpsuits and playsuits in the past. On the one hand, they are so easy to throw on and can look stylish with minimal effort required. On the other hand, they can be an absolute nightmare when you’ve had one too many cocktails and are attempting to go to the toilet. I have...

Dressing Up During Lockdown

•Sponsored post, gifted items• 10 weeks of lockdown, hey? As the rules begin to relax a little here in the UK, I have still been spending the majority of my time at home in our back garden, working, playing with the kids, sunbathing and, if I’m being honest, recording TikToks (yep, I’m addicted). FemmeLuxe recently sent me across some pieces, which I featured in my post about finding my over thirties style,...

Although I have just about started to get used to this ‘new normal’ and settled into a routine, it is still a strain on your mental health to have to stay indoors for an extended period of time.

Over 30s Style with FemmeLuxe

•Features gifted items• This weekend I am turning thirty one, effectively entering the ‘over thirties’ category, something which would have terrified me a few years ago, I won’t lie. Now, especially with everything going on in the world at the moment, turning another year older is something I consider a blessing rather than a curse. I am not afraid of getting older anymore, but I have been trying to work...

Spring Stay at Home Style

Sponsored  Although I don’t ‘follow fashion’, I do love sharing my own personal style in these posts. It is a little more challenging, when you are confined to your own home, with only a garden to escape to other than your daily exercise allowance, however I wanted to share some of the outfits I have been wearing whilst on lockdown, including a gorgeous tailored coat, which I was sent prior...

Styling up High Waisted Jeans

Sponsored Post  If you are a regular reader, you may remember I mentioned my main goal for 2020 was to work on finding ‘myself’ including working on my own personal style. Although I am now in my thirties, and a mum of three, I don’t want these things to define me or my style. I am consciously trying to work with clothes that highlight the areas of my body I...

Dressing for Winter Weather with Lighthouse Clothing

•Gifted items• I have written before about how much I love to get out and about, especially during the cold and dark winter months, when everything is a little gloomy, so that I have exercise and fresh air to keep my energy levels up. We live close by to the sea, the New Forest national park and not too far from other places of interest including Corfe Castle. As National...
