F**k your expectations

Dress - Boohoo.com

So I saw this news story the other day and it really really bothered me. Bothered is probably the wrong word, disgusted would be more appropriate. But yeah, it's pretty horrific. To summarise the article, a 26 year old model recently posed in an advert with unshaven legs, and as a result of this received a barrage of abuse alongside threats of rape. Imagine living a world where a woman is threatened with rape because she chooses to leave her body as it naturally is meant to be, I mean how completely messed up is this!? It inspired me to reach out to my female friends and see what their thoughts were on these issues, and here's what they said.

Why I'll always take chances


Nervously waiting in the Models1 reception in Covent Garden I suddenly thought to myself, ‘hang on, how did I end up here again?’.

So sure, I didn’t win the contract with Models1 x SkinnyDip, but entering the Instagram competition on the back of my ladies’ reminders (thanks CJ I will forever aspire to be organised like you) actually led me to be invited for the final casting at Models1 in London.

I've got the bank holiday blues (bad)


Okay so I know it's already Wednesday, and yes we've officially made it over the 'hump', but I'm still mourning the incredible long weekend that I had the pleasure of spending in Cambridge with my better half (just kidding he's also a proper weirdo like me). Cambs is always a favourite of mine as you can't beat a quaint lil' punt along the river with a glass of prosecco in hand, but this weekend felt extra special as we decided to stay over night and treat ourselves to a room at The Tamburlaine.

Kiss The Sky


Hi beauties! Been a little while since I've done an outfit post so I'm buzzing to share some pics with you and talk about one of my new favourite brands. I came across Kiss The Sky during one my usual 3-hour long Asos browses and immediately fell in love with the boho/girly/festival/casj kinda style. I picked out two items for myself - one of which was this rose/leopard print cami dress - and I've been mainly dressing it down with trainers and big cosy coats recently.

Philip Kingsley Summer Solutions


Summer is, and always has been, my favourite time of year. Hair gets lighter (or pinker in my case), skin gets freckly, nights are longer and mornings are brighter - all is good with the world again! Any time out of the office is spent lapping up Vitamin D like no one's business, and a calendar countdown to sun, salt water and sand is never far from my desktop. But, while I'm always super conscious of taking care of my face and skin during the summer, my hair doesn't really get the same level of attention. Cue Philip Kingsley!

Venice photo diary


If you follow me on social media you will have been completely bombarded by Venice spam (sorrynotsorry) over the past few days, and now I'm back home from the city that stole my heart I am super excited to share all my pics on here! Everyone says that Venice is incredibly beautiful, but honestly I don't think anything could have prepared me for a trip as stunning as this...
