The Brightest Coat You Ever Did See

Happy Monday and here’s to all the #MotivationMonday hype because the sun is shining and life is good.  I’ve just returned from 2 trips last week and can’t quite figure out whether they’ve given me a boost of energy or I’m just past the point of tired now, but either way I’ll roll with it.  So to complement my rather bright and perky mood today, here’s an extremely bright and perky outfit in good old ‘here’s what I wore’ style. …

Who is an Engineer and Why Aren’t There More Girls in STEM?

Just me and some cool engineered thing I found the other day.  I joke.  Just needed a pretty picture so here’s a totally irrelevant one.  Rome spam will be coming your way soon. If you’ve been kicking around here for a while, you might remember that back in 2015 I was a Vlogger and Ambassador for Tomorrow’s Engineers Week with Engineering UK.  Just typing that sentence makes me feel like I’m about to slip into my little explanation speech that…

Style Steal Skinnies and A Note on Dressing ‘Smart’

Oh HI THERE side eye.  Totally unintentionally shade being thrown here I promise.  Ain’t nobody got any need for that on a Friday morning.  Far more need for coffee and the like. Anyway, gone are the days of the good old ‘here’s what I wore today’ outfit post and most of us just share when we wore something fan dabby dozy… but realistically how often do most of us wear our fan dabby dozy outfits?  Time for the boring but…

Bigging Up the Hometown | New Food and Fun in Preston

Howdy.  So much as I like to share exotic places far and wide on this blog (and defo would if I could erm, go to new places every week) I’d like to keep it a bit more real and share cool new things closer to home too.  Much closer to home, so in Preston to be specific.  This delightful little city in Lancashire.  Interpret that with whatever sarcasm you wish.  Mine depends on the day.  Fellow Prestonians (feel like I’m…

A Different Way To #PackMoreIn

I hardly need any excuse to head to My Favourite Place Ever for a day, but a challenge to pack as much into a day as possible would be a pretty good excuse if I did.  This country bumpkin loves a good roadtrip day out.  Original Source challenged me to #PackMoreIn to a day just like they pack more in to each bottle – a challenge I was willing to accept!  In the past I’ve crammed all sorts into a…

31 Lifestyle Blog Post Ideas For When You Need a Little Inspiration

Just a short and snappy one from me tonight!  Much as I like reading and writing long rambly blog posts I thought I’d share something (hopefully) more useful today.  A blog post about blog posts, woo!  These are based on lifestyle ideas I’ve written/have in my drafts – we’ve all seen the same ideas come up time and time again on Pinterest lists, so hopefully these provide some different prompts.  Sometimes just a little prompt is all it takes to…

Why I’ll Never Be The Cool Girl | 19 Going On 90

Just thought I’d change up my style a bit y’know.  I joke (sitting here wearing a jumper dress and tights like 6/7 days lately).  It’s fun to let other people style you and play dressup with a different look sometimes though!  These shots are from a test shoot with Joseph Clarkson back in January and I really like how different they look!  Can’t say I’ll be rocking pinstripe pants and green eyeshadow every day from here on out but you…
