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,...

Dressing for Me During Lockdown

•Sponsored post• Lockdown is tough, right? 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. I have found a few things have helped me to feel in control whilst at home during lockdown, and one of those things is how I...

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...

Why You Should Visit Your Local Charity Shop

I must admit, I never used to ‘get’ charity shops. I wasn’t sure they were for me, and I was a bit hesitant about trying to find something which somebody else had deemed unworthy (yes, I realise how awful that sounds). Ever since I started working for a charity, however, I have realised how amazing they really are. Not only do they allow those who don’t have a lot of...

Dressing for Autumn Walks

•Features Gifted Item• Suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder, I try and get outdoors in the fresh air during daylight as much as possible in autumn and winter, when the days are shorter. Wrapping up warm and heading out into the countryside on a Sunday is our favourite family activity as the nights draw in and it gives me some of the vitamin D my body is lacking in during this...
