The Best Winter Sun Destinations 2018

At this time of year, when I'm back at work after a hectic Christmas and the UK is STILL dreary and cold, all I want to do is escape the winter blues and jump on a plane to somewhere hot. Luckily there are plenty of winter sun destinations a short plane ride away from the UK and with flights at reasonable prices in January/February it really is the best time to travel and get some much needed Vitamin D.

Ways To Give Back While Travelling

As you may know by now travelling is an incredibly fulfilling experience for me. It gives me the opportunity to experience new cultures, meet new people and broaden my horizons. As well as this, being well travelled can help us all grow as people as whilst also finding a great way to give something back.

Ways to Transform Your Life in 2018

Even though we're less than a month into the New Year, there's a pretty good chance that a lot of people have already given up on their resolutions, I know one of mine is to stick to the gym and that hasn't really happened yet. We all make lots of plans, but it can be difficult to hang onto them for the full year. However, just because your resolutions might have fallen through doesn't mean that there aren't things that you can do to make your life just that little bit better. Here are a few suggestions:

Knitwear Lookbook with Tobi

Today I've not got one, but two outfits to share with you in collaboration with LA based fashion brand Tobi. If you saw my previous faux fur outfit I'm a big fan of knitwear this season and luckily Tobi have plenty of gorgeous pieces online. Knitwear is the best way to keep warm in the winter, comes in various prints and styles including roll necks and can be layered really easily. For me it's easy dressing when the temperature is at its lowest but it can make a maximum style impact and I'm here to show you two outfits that do just that.

Tips for Making Guests Feel Welcome In Your Home

With the popularity of Airbnb, many more people are now accommodating people in their homes, whether it be having friends you already know round for the weekend (which is what I do a lot) or even offering your home to a friend of a friend or complete strangers. Whoever it is, before you agree you want your home to be prepared for their stay and it’s important you consider their needs as well as your own. There may be certain rules or things they need to know and questions they may have about your home. Generally people can be too polite to ask for certain items or arrangements, so its better if you think of them first.

Styling Faux Fur for Winter

With the new year finally here, I thought I would brace the cold and hit the ground running with a new outfit post and what better way to showcase my winter style then with an exciting collaboration with LA based fashion brand Tobi. I was able to pick out three items from their website and believe me it was difficult! They have such a fab range of clothing, shoes and accessories and the best part is they have regular offers including a huge 50% off and free delivery to the UK, so you can definitely grab a bargain for winter.

The Best Copper Accessories for your Home

Copper has become a firm favourite with home owners and bloggers like me, in my living room it's mainly themed with grey's and black's, which can be quite dark when you first enter the room so adding copper accessories certainly adds a warm glow to my room and makes a stylish statement too.

 For Christmas I was very excited to receive the below copper items for my home including a lamp from Aldi, copper coffee cups and a cool cocktail shaker from M&S. I also bought myself these copper letter shapes from Hobbycraft with mine and Blake's initials (too cute!). And because I think you can never have too much copper in your home, I'm sharing some more of my favourites from online, all under £30!

My Festive & NYE Outfits 2017

To finish off another amazing year in style, I have put together my final outfits...It has been a while since I have shared fashionable outfit pictures on the blog after all! I don't know about you but in the winter I find it difficult to shoot photos, its usually raining, dark and miserable and whilst during the week I am also working full time, but having time off over Christmas meant I could take some snaps of my festive and new year looks which I'm eager to share with you!
