I am weirdly proud to admit that I own more than 40 perfumes. My collection started off small and blossomed very quickly when I realised the effect that choosing a scent could have on my mood, my memories and even my confidence levels, to me there is no greater joy than when my fragrance choice matches how I’m feeling because I know that I'll be able to wear the perfume in the future and remember the amazing day I had. Here are 3 of my favourites for the summertime.

3 Ways I Will Make My Blog More Successful

Sunday, 30 June 2019


Something I’ve been thinking a lot about recently is the purpose of my blog and Instagram account. Maintaining both takes up every minute of my free time, my weekends aren't mine to do what I want with - if I want to go on a short trip or even a day out shopping I have to plan for it weeks in advance because of my full-time job. Though I love being creative and taking photos, sometimes it can feel a bit like I’m working 7 days a week. Don’t get me wrong, I love creating content and I’d be lost without this little space I’ve created on the Internet, but I do wonder if I could be achieving more with my platforms. Here are some of the goals I’ve set myself for the year ahead.

5 Feel Good Movies For Gloomy Days

Wednesday, 19 June 2019


I've always been quite an emotional person, but this year my moods have been all over the place. I can start a day feeling positive and hopeful and end it sobbing into my pillow, which can be really difficult to deal with. In the past I haven’t been a big movie watcher, I’m a terrible fidget so I find it difficult to sit still for two whole hours, but recently I’ve discovered the power of movies for lifting my low moods into a more positive place. Here are some of my go-to feel-good watches. 

The Little Details - An Accessories Haul

Having taken an accidental 7 month break from blogging I’ve decided to make yet another come back, this time in a much clearer mental space and with a plan up my sleeve. I’ve never been able to commit to blogging before, I’ve always blamed a lack of time for my lazy posting schedule (which is somewhat a valid excuse considering it feels like I spend every hour under the sun working my full-time job), but if I’m being totally honest, the main reason was because I found my own content to be so uninspiring that I couldn’t drum up the motivation to keep posting it. I’ll admit that I would have never read my own blog in the past, but that’s going to change from now on. I’m committing to posting only content that I enjoy writing, content which contains more of my personality and comes from the heart, I hope you’ll want to follow along with my new blogging journey, I’d love to see your face around here! Now that I’ve got that off my chest let’s get into the post.
