hands free

Zara black jumpsuit

I'm kind of obsessed with this rucksack. It's pretty much got everything going for it. It's large enough to fit all your essentials in, yet not so large as to be cumbersome. It's got all the hands free benefits of a rucksack, but is still smart, chic and work appropriate. It's butter soft leather and a beautiful pale shade of grey. And it was in the sale! OK, I'll stop now, but you can tell why this baby has barely left the crook of my arm since I bought it...

the july wish list

July's wish list includes some big earrings, because I can't get enough of those right now, a beautiful bronzing palette and a luxurious silk kimono, because who doesn't need one of those?

cactus addict


If you follow me on Instagram you'll realise I have a pretty obsessive personality, and that is mostly evident in my taste in interiors. Two things you will find hundreds of in my flat: Diptyque candles and cacti. I probably only bought my first cactus about three years ago, and it wasn't until I moved into my flat a year and a half ago that I really started stocking up. But since then my obsession has steadily grown, to the point where I buy one probably every other week and I've pretty much reached saturation point. Two things struck me when I assembled them all for these photos: firstly, yeah I do have a lot of cacti crammed into a two bed flat, don't I? And secondly: how empty and lifeless the rest of my flat looks without them.

the joy of the jumpsuit

Zara black jumpsuit, Mango perspex sandals and 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli medium burgundy bag

This jumpsuit is one of those pieces which after wearing it a few times, you realise it's so perfect you wish you'd bought two. It's that elusive combination of smart yet comfortable and versatile yet standout. Whenever I'm travelling with work I'll always wear this on the last day, because it's ideal workwear but still comfortable enough to fly home in. Paired with my new absolute favourite Perspex strap shoes - which are also beautiful yet supremely comfortable - it's pretty much my go-to outfit in this warm weather.

bronzed make-up tutorial

Bronzed make-up tutorial

In case you haven't figured it out, I went on holiday to Mexico recently (what, you knew?!) Anyway, I try not to tan my face because I don't want any more wrinkles/sagging than I already have (the struggle is real post-25, my friends). So when I get back I inevitably have a paler face than body and need to use make-up to rectify this.

frill seeker

Zara black frilled top, Whistles Fairhope sandals and Topshop Boutique leather croc skirt

I would never have thought I'd wear a top with frill sleeves. I think I retired my last remnant of ruffles about five years ago, if not longer. Since then it's been clean lines and simple cuts all the way in my wardrobe. But we all know that you can never say never when it comes to fashion. I mostly blame Ellery for bringing back oversized proportions and making mega sleeves and frilled layers suddenly seem cool again. This has now filtered down to the high street and Zara for one is full to the brim with all things frilly right now.
