It goes without saying that Odelouca is a beautiful spot for a photoshoot. I’m always on the look out for pretty locations to take outfit photos and last week (before I had my latest haircut!) Michael thought about Odelouca, a nearby reservoir. I’m glad he did. The weather was glorious and the location simply stunning, especially this time of year when the little white flowers start to bloom everywhere. Odelouca really is a lovely place to visit to wile away an hour… Read more »

I love mixing casual pieces with more dressy elements. For example, last week we went out for dinner with friends so I dressed up my new, grey H&M jumper with heels and a clutch, a statement necklace and ear-rings (both of which I’ve had for years), not to mention the simple black leggings from Stradivarius. It’s such an easy outfit to put together yet looks stylish at the same time. You could easily wear boots with it too. A few… Read more »

While Michael was cleaning his motorbike the other day, I figured it would be a fun backdrop  for an impromptu photoshoot (pretending to be a biker chick!). His sporty BMW is clearly his pride and joy, so I had to be careful though 😉  But, as you can see from his photography skills, his bike is also the only thing he wanted to focus us (no surprise there!) hence me being slightly blurred whenever the bike is in shot! Last week it still wasn’t quite warm enough… Read more »

I wanted to show you the Massimo Dutti dress that I bought a few months ago and I had intended to take some photos before we went out for dinner. However I took too long in the bath and it so was dark by the time we went out. So, when we got back from the Chinese restaurant, I thought what a great idea it would be to take a few pics inside at home. So here’s me a few glasses… Read more »

When I started blogging, my first priority was to buy a really good camera and then I was desperate to find a decent bag to carry it in. So, having been blogging for quite a while now, I thought I’d share with you a few things to consider when buying a camera bag. Ideally, I wanted something stylish – after all, my blog is often about style. Unfortunately, style and camera bags aren’t something that necessarily go hand in hand. Not… Read more »

Life is easier when you dance – at least that’s what my t-shirt tells me anyway. Yes, this post is not about dancing, it’s about what I wore yesterday 😉 I do love things that sparkle and shine and so I couldn’t resist buying this t-shirt a couple of seasons ago. I think it came from Promod and I probably got it in the sale. And yes, I also bought it because it’s about dancing. I LOVE to dance and… Read more »

Here is the perfect example of an impulse buy. I bought these gorgeous blue velvet shoes a couple of weeks ago in the sale for a bargain (and I mean a serious bargain – under 10 euros!) even though there is a problem with one of the ankle straps. Basically, it’s almost impossible to put the strap back through the buckle because it’s a little bit too thick at the end. But I didn’t care, I totally fell in love… Read more »

I bought a fun pair of leopard print moccasins in the January sales. I never thought I’d see myself wearing something like this but they were a real bargain in Massimo Dutti so I figured why not? To be honest, I’m still a little unsure what to wear them with so yesterday I simply teamed them with a pair of skinny blue jeans, a khaki shirt, black cardigan and my favourite burgundy tote bag from Knomo. If you have any suggestions of… Read more »

A few days after Christmas we headed up to Lincoln so I could have my first tattoo at 40. Earlier in the year, I’d done a tonne of research online to find the best tattoo artist in the areas I’d be holidaying within the UK. Alex Stark at The Tattooed Arms stood out to me so I emailed him. He was fully booked for months, however (as if it was meant to be) he had one date available and it just happened… Read more »

I’ve wanted a pair of leather-look leggings for months but never found the right ones, so when I got the chance to try out this gorgeous pair* from UK Tights, I jumped at the chance. After liaising with UK Tights and deciding to try a larger pair (I was told this particular brand can come up a tad small sometimes), I waited for them to arrive in the post. I didn’t have to wait long. Sadly, the leggings were took baggy… Read more »
