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…

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 one transitional dress you need this season

For Autumn in a parallel universe where transitional wear is actually a thing for longer than a week, btw.  We all know there’s a fat chance of that happening.  Fear not though, I have searched the shelves and come up with the goods to cruise right on through 1 week of Autumn into freezing cold drizzly winter.  Hear me out! Open shoulders and long sleeves = perfect Autumn combination.  We can continue with this refusal to wear anything that covers…

body on me | Top Shop bodysuit

Nothing new that I’m slightly obsessed with bodysuits!  You’d think I’d have added another couple to my collection already based on the amount I’ve banged on about them, but nope – just this one so far.  Unless you count my old ballet leotard.   Haven’t found any others that fit yet!  #Tallgirlproblems strikes again.  A too-short bodysuit ain’t a pretty sight.  Literally feels like you’re trying to squish into a child’s babygrow.  Sexy.  So instead of a ‘3 favourite bodysuits’ post,…

the numbers game | some blogging stats for the curious

2000 comments.  My blog received its 2000th comment on Sunday, and for that – for everybody that’s ever commented – I am very, very grateful! 2000 comments – that’s a lot of thoughts.  Stepping back and putting numbers into perspective, it can feel a little crazy.  Good crazy; most definitely good crazy.  Addictively crazy.  Blogging isn’t quantity over quality, but numbers are becoming ever more important, and there’s no denying that.  It makes total sense. If you want your blog…

blogging goals and a life catchup

Monday night life catchup, hows about that?  Feels like a good time for a chat about life lately.  I’m saying that like I don’t have an absolute mountain of homework right now that should *maybe* be my priority, but a girl’s gotta check in hasn’t she? I’d envisaged this 5 day weekend as one of daytrips and outdoorsyness – all was looking great on Friday, and then the view from my window turned into this… … so I promptly scrapped…

positive thoughts | a life during A levels

Teen blogger with long straight brunette hair

I literally feel like I could start every single weekend post by saying that ‘it’s been a long week’, but I guess that just means I should stop expecting my weeks to go quickly doesn’t it?  Although I can 100% guarantee that this week off (half term THANK THE LORD) will fly by in 2 minutes.  Sod’s law does like to bite me in the ass.  Spoiler to anybody starting A-levels next year: they will suck the life out of…
