Style – Finding My Own Personal Style

Have you ever wondered why I call this series of my blog ‘style’ rather than ‘fashion’? It’s because, although I actually quite enjoy sharing with you my latest additions to my wardrobe, and having impromptu photoshoots in our back garden, I don’t feel like I know enough about fashion to actually be able to refer to myself as a ‘fashion blogger’. For me, anybody can have style, but fashion is...

Style – Some New Looks for Our Summer Cruise

You may have realised by now, New Look is my favourite go-to clothes shop. Ever since I worked for them way back in my teens, I have loved their affordable styles, and feel that I can almost always find something I like when I head instore or have a look online. Last week I treated myself to a few new bits, after having a big declutter of our bedroom and...

Style – Roses & Whiskey Jewellery

If you follow me over on Instagram you may have already seen me professing my love numerous times about new brand Roses & Whiskey, who specialise in handmade crystal jewellery. I currently have four of their necklaces, and I love them all! Although I have always loved the look of crystals, and have heard a little about their healing properties, I didn’t actually own any jewellery before fellow Bournemouth based...

Style – Preparing for Summer with Lunar Shoes

I don’t want to jinx anything, but summer seems to be finally here and the sunshine we’ve been having here in England has had me reaching for the sandals. I was recently sent a pair of Lollyfox sandals by the lovely people at Lunar Shoes, and when they arrived I wasted no time in trying them on and having a little impromptu photo shoot in the back garden. There is...

Style – My Shoot with Fordtography 

When I booked for Kaye Ford, who shoots people (in the photography sense rather than the wanted by the police sense) as guest speaker at the Bournemouth Bloggers May Meetup, I knew I had to fit in a session with her as her images are always totally stunning. Without trying to sound like a total fan girl, and failing massively, I was really nervous in the lead up to the...

Style – Keeping Cool & Covered Up in Mexico with Miss Tunica

You may have seen my previous post, talking about the essentials I packed to take with me to Mexico. In addition to these, I also had with me a very lovely cover up, which had been gifted to me by the people at Miss Tunica. This Nikki tunic, comes in a variety of shades, including the one I went for which is called Hot Maroon, and is a brilliant bright...

Style – Holiday Essentials with Matalan

As a mum of three, I can sometimes get so caught up in buying clothes for the kids that I push my own needs aside. When it does come to clothing for me, I need to find items which are affordable and will stand the test of time, whilst still being stylish – not much to ask for then. Luckily, Matalan tick all the boxes when it comes to their...

Style – Planning my Honeymoon Wardrobe

We fly to Mexico in just over a month, which you probably already know as I haven’t shut up about it since we booked our honeymoon just after Christmas. I have started buying a few new bits, and getting some trusty summer wardrobe staples out of storage in preparation and today I wanted to share with you some items I will be packing to take with me on that long...

Mummy Mondays – Why I’m Encouraging my 7 Year Old to Take my Photos

You may have seen, because I do keep banging on about it, that my eldest son has, for a few months now, been taking my style post photos. What started as a desperate move after Ed didn’t get home from work in time, has grown into something more as Cameron seems to have a real talent for taking photos. Using my Olympus Pen E-PL8, Cameron mainly points and shoots, but...

Gifting the Globenfeld Sports Watch

Watches can be a lovely gift for both men and women, but they can also be one of the hardest gifts to get right. There are so many different styles out there, and if you don’t really know what you’re looking for, it can all be a little overwhelming. Ed is quite practical when it comes to watches. He isn’t as bothered in how fashionable a watch looks, but more...
