My Top 5 Autumn/Winter Haul Looks for 2018 | Style


Hi everyone! Incase you couldn't already guess from the title of this blog, welcome to my AW Haul for 18/19! Seeing as we're past December and into January I thought I'd do a little round up of my top 5 looks I've be wearing during AW.. although.. since Black Friday it does feel just a smidgen out of date as I've got hold of a few more items to bolster me through 2019, and a little unanimous Instastory poll told me to do a Haul for that so I'll be getting behind the camera for that soon! But anyway over to a very mild affair that is AW18, which I'm kind of hoping that it gets a bit colder in order to appreciate some of theses pieces more (I'm sure I'll take that sentence back when we get that casual snow flurry in March...)

ASOS Most Wanted Box Review - October 2018 | Style


I prayed one day to get hold of an ASOS box, and tried may times to and failed but THIS October I finally got one and I felt like I achieved climbing the greatest mountain ever!.… What a loser!

So after many requests on Instagram for a review of said box (which I don't really do but there are some big names in this box!) I went ahead and got it done #AnotherTinyBlogWin

Now.. if I'm honest.. with the excitement of realising this box was available to still buy on the site (and even now its still available which I do NOT understand!!) I basically hardly looked at what was inside so when I got it through the post I didn't fully know what I'd bought.. but for £12 it was just a good way of pampering and trialing without the commitment.

My 7 Day Dubai Diary - The things NOT to miss! | Travel & Style


As highly requested via Instastory (and you were all pretty much unanimous on your decision of what to read!) after some seriously hard graft, gathering my memories together, searching for all my receipts (yes thats how in-depth I am!) and getting my head ‘in the zone’ as it were, my Dubai blog is finally here!

This is my day by day diary to one of the most glitz and glamour clad areas of the middle east, and one of THE places on my travel Hitlist that I've wanted to visit, plus I was luckily enough for this to be coupled with seeing 2 very good friends of mine that I only get to see once a year which made the trip even more special.

So without further ado get ready for sun, styling, brunches, clubbing, ladies nights, food and oh yeah more brunches as I show you around the dizzying heights of Dubai!

Casual outfits that stand out from the crowd - Interview with lookvine.com | Style



Casual looks are always something I think every fashionista around the world love as they're the easiest way to dress up and be yourself. Dressing up for an event, weddings or work can be fun but sometimes there are too many rules attached. Theres nothing more invigorating than a bucket load of variety, flexibility and experimentation from combining ANYTHING together that your heart desires and seeing what outfit comes of it.

5 Ways to Combat Commuter Stress | Opinion


As every big city rush hour commuter will know (and my case getting to and from Central London 5 days a week, and have done for the past 8 years), commuting is just a nightmare from start to finish. And unless you wake up hours before your body has had enough sleep or even properly switched on its power button and is still walking around zombified in flight mode, to rush in for a 7am start JUST to miss the peak rush (and for those people who do that, I admire your insanity!), those rush hour armpit to face blood boiling scenarios are something we have to encounter more often than we'd like.
