A High Street Shopping Experiment | Where The Nice People Are Round 2

Yonks ago, back in what feels like the blogging dark ages, I wrote a blog post about where the nicest shopping experiences were to be had.  Just as a little experiment to show appreciation for the friendly people who make your day that bit nicer.  And yesterday I decided 3 years down the line to do High Street Experiment Round II, with different shops, and see where had the friendliest staff and who made for the nicest experience as a…

The Struggle to Pull Yourself Together After Christmas and New Year

Hands up who’s failing a couple of their goals already?  My room’s a tip and I’ve blogged once in 5 days so erm, those two have gone down the toilet already.  Nevertheless, there’s hope for the rest! Can I also get a hands up from all the people who are struggling to kickstart their brain again after Christmas?  Seriously I think my brain cells have deteriorated and the ‘it’s 6pm, what have I actually done all day?!?’ feelings are kicking…

Metallic in Manchester | Why I don’t have a ‘look’

Top of the Monday morning to you, guys and gals.  May we appreciate that Lily has prepared a blog post for bright and early Monday morning and is feeling organised and good about life. I’m going away today, so let’s also place bets on how long the organised feeling will last before I realise I’ve forgotten all my clothes, left my laptop charger at home, or done something equally daft. (I usually do. My mum would vouch for my stupidity). …

love it? hate it?

Warning that this post’s gonna involve me taking clothes way too seriously and chitchatting about life atm.  Barcelona travel-y posts will resume shortly! But first, I introduce you to my Barbie Bag, as I’ve christened it.  Sometimes I’ll spot an item on a shelf and decide I need it in my life in approximately 0.2 seconds.  Then I’ll decide that  it’s completely ridiculous and I’ll never use it.  Then I’ll umm and ahh over it for weeks.   Cat shorts, for…

the bomber jacket – how I wore it

Casual teen shorts outfit

Happy Monday guys and gals.  I can still just about keep track of what day it is.  Providing all goes to plan, when this goes live I’ll be enjoying a very excited happy Monday, chilling in Manchester terminal 1, snacking and chatting and peoplewatching whilst waiting to board the plane.  I’ll be wearing this bomber jacket (vicious airport air conditioning, I’m ready for ya) and hopefully won’t have spilled anything down it.  But that’s only a hope, not a promise. …

great minds | cosy sweaters and thigh high socks

Brunette teen wearing plum coloured rollneck top from New Look

Hope everybody’s first week back has been as good as a rainy week in January can be!  Mine’s been pretty busy, but in a good way, and I’m feeling good vibes about life at the moment. 🙂  Might just be part of the whole New Year thing giving me false illusions, but I feel like my motivation’s come back lately, and I’m liking it!  Not that I ever dropped into complete laziness or anything, but I feel like I’d had…

january | a new khaki coat

Feels like it’s been a while since my last casual outfit / casual chatty catchup post, so that’s what I’m going with tonight!  With a Christmas present outfit, obviously.  They’ll continue to be Christmas Present Clothes ’til at least March. So yeah, life lately.  Looks like January is gonna be pretty busy already!  We have mock exams this month (yeah they’re only mocks, but still) and a textiles deadline with about 50 things to hand in by the end of…
