Monthly Favourites May 2016


I'm well and truly on a YouTube roll! I've posted another video, and although I'm not on a regular schedule with videos, I'm still posting as much as I possibly can. 

I've collected a few new additions this month and wanted to take you through my monthly favourites ranging from shoes to beauty to homewares. Let me know what you think and maybe take a moment to subscribe to my channel.

The 70s Called, They Want Their Jacket Back

Vintage 70s Festival Outfit Suede Fringe Jacket Fashion Blogger
Jacket*: Beyond Retro // Hat*: ASOS (similar) // Sunglasses: Spitalfields Market // Dress*: TOBI // Necklace: Primark // Boots: Missguided

For the first time in a decade I haven't got any upcoming festivals planned - ZERO, ZILCH! It's a strange and unnatural feeling not having any lined up for the summer months and I'm bound to suffer with a serious case of FOMO, especially during Glastonbury Festival next month. I'm tempted to just runaway to another country for a weekend to avoid any TV coverage. Who's with me?

However, having no festivals on the horizon doesn't stop me from dressing the part over the coming months. My day-to-day summer wardrobe resembles a festival frolicker, even if it just means popping to the shops or going out for coffee. I tend to mix up vintage with high street or secondhand, modern pieces most days but still aim for that late 60s to early 70s look that has become my daily uniform.

A Blogging Essential: Penclic B3 Mouse Review


Technology reviews aren't usually my thing, but when the opportunity to review a Penclic B3 mouse landed in my inbox, I was intrigued.

As a digital marketer and social media manager by day and a blogger by night, it's fair to say I spend a lot of my time in front of a computer screen. A lot of bloggers like myself are in the same boat with digital based careers meaning without realising there is a lot of pressure and strain on our hands, which are consistently curled in an unnatural and uncomfortable position over our mouse, touchpad and keyboard. This motion can lead to severe RSI (repetitive strain injury), which can cause aches in your wrists and fingers, as well as long term damage. 

I'm A Not-So-Crazy Cat Lady (& A CAT THEMED GIVEAWAY!)

Not So Crazy Cat Lady Blogger

I'm a self-confessed crazy cat lady; I live with seven at the moment! The cats actually outnumber the humans in this household. 

The reason I crossed out the crazy is because my love of cats (and all animals, great and small!) has not led me to any erratic, unstable behaviour that has deemed me to be unfit for social situations or finding a partner. 'Crazy cat lady' is a term that has so many, unnecessary negative connotations attached. I mean just look at the Crazy Cat Lady from The Simpsons who is depicted as nothing more lonely, screaming, older woman whose past time happens to be launching one of her hundred cats at anyone and everyone. It's because of popular culture images like this that single cat owners have been given a bit of an unfair reputation over the years.
