My Designs - The Burberry copy

I actually made this skirt a while ago, but completely forgot to post it! It's just a simple skater style skirt, with a zip at the back. The one thing I love the most about it, would have to be the materiel. Not only is soft and easy to work with, but it also looks very much like the famous Burberry pattern. I'm not huge into brands, but I have to admit that there's something very appealing about this specific pattern. The muted colours make it easy to wear with a variety of styles, and yet the checks also give it an element of interest.

Discuss - Is social media healthy?

So, one of my new year goals was to post regularly on this blog, ironically new years was over a week ago and I have yet to post anything… So yeah, if any of you are feeling bad about struggling with new years resolutions, just know that I’ve pretty much failed before the year has even started. Anyway, as much as I love dwelling on my failures, what I really want to discuss today is social media or, more specifically, the impacts of social media.

Madrid in photos (& Recommendations)

We all know that Winter has it's perks, but with it comes an array of downsides. It's not only the season for cute party dresses, hot chocolate and barrel loads of chocolate, but also the one for hot water bottles, copious amounts of Lemsip, and truck loads of cough medicine. So if you've been wondering where I've been for the past week, I'd have to say, buried under a pile of blankets, with the blinds closed. Yep it wasn't pretty. I'd love to say I'm one of those people who takes illness in their stride and still manages to go to the gym, do 100 different things, and still somehow look like an absolute God, but I'm really not. My reality is more, stay in bed, binge on Netflix and... well... moan a lot till it passes. So anyway, I'm sorry for the lack of posting, but I'm starting to feel a lot better and will *hopefully* be back to my regular uploading schedule from now on.

My Designs - The SC Dress

If you know me in person (which most of you probably don't) you'll know that I love the smart casual look. I'm that girl who went to school dressed in little collared shirts, blazers and black heeled boots. So when I feel like sketching, my designs usually have this as a common theme. My most recent design is in complete parallel with this idea. A simple black and white, skater style, pinafore dress. I thought it would go perfectly paired with a little white collared shirt (which ironically was in the wash when I was taking the photos) underneath, and black tights. Blending the smart, the shirt, and the casual, the skater style dress, together seamlessly.

The Liebster Award

Image from

So I'm incredibly happy to say that I recently got nominated for the Liebster award!

I'm not going to lie, until recently I had never really heard of the Liebster award. It was kind of just one of those posts that I saw going around but never really paid much attention to (oops my bad). But after actually taking the time to research it, I began to realise how great the concept is, and am very pleased and honoured to have been nominated. So if, like me, you're a total Liebster noob, I'm going to put a quick explanation of what it is before getting into it.
