So I'm not lying (or going a bit Kanye West) when I say this may be my favourite set of blog photos of all time. 1: new tulle skirt. 2: the most beautiful street in Brighton and Hove. I mean, what more could a girl ask for?!

Almost three years ago, I stepped foot onto the campus of The University of Sussex. I was scared, overwhelmed, nervous, lost. When I had left school, many people had told me, "You'll be the first one to drop out...you won't even last a term". Part of me believed them.
But I'm not a quitter.

Not going to lie, I've never really seen myself as a 'festival girl'. The idea of going away, getting drenched in the rain with no way to warm up while being drunk has never really appealed to me. But Latitude was different, and I'm not just saying that because I was able to go with such a fantastic brand.
The lovely people at Fat Face invited me along to be a part of their #WashedInHappiness campaign, and you all know how much I love them! I've worked with them several times in the past and they have always been a joy to be associated with. So, I was absolutely over the moon to go away for the weekend and see all that Latitude had to offer. I also dragged along the lovely April Todd for the weekend to keep me company and take some shots!

One area of my home that I haven't quite got right is my dining room. I say dining room, but it's actually just a space off my living room where a table could fit. I absolutely love surfing Pinterest for my favourite dining room inspo, though, and I'm hoping that soon I can get it just right!
As you can probably tell, I'm loving grey tones at the moment, and one of my favourite ideas is having material chairs with lots of pillows and blankets on them. It gives the most cosy feel ever and I know it would be lovely to curl up in one during the Winter months with some work. The dining room furniture above is from Fishpools and I love both the wooden chairs with darker seats and the grey material chairs. They have some of the most gorgeous dining room sets and are perfect basic staples to add things too.
Of course, I had to find the perfect grey cushions and throws to complete the look and I found these super cosy looking ones online. I love the look of having loads of different cushion textures but the faux fur look is always a winner!
And the dining room wouldn't be complete without the perfect crockery! Anthropologie always nail it with their plates and glasses. They're so unique and come on, they have glasses with unicorns on them. It's like they know me. I've also been obsessed with their pastel tea plates for ages and they're currently in sale!
Let me know what you think of my dining room aesthetic and if you have anymore ideas for the dream dining room in the comments! If I didn't have something unicorn themed I would just lose my mind to be honest.
This post was kindly sponsored by Fishpools but all love of grey and gorgeous dining rooms are my own.

So, in my last post I mentioned that I went somewhere very special for lunch on my visit to London last week. As a huge foodie, I have always wanted to visit one of Gordon Ramsey's restaurants and I finally got to dine at Maze in Mayfair! Famous for their sushi, they focus on taking classic European dishes and twisting them with Asian influences.

THE SUUUUN HAS ARRIVED!
If you read that in the voice of a certain Gorilla from a certain Disney movie then you, my dear friend, gain my eternal love.
On Wednesday I headed up to London for the day and (let me take a moment to throw my hands in the air in praise) it was warm enough for bare legs.

Ever since my obsession with Instagram truly set in, I've been working my hardest at increasing my following. Of course, it's not all about the numbers, as they say, but the numbers are a pretty damn good bonus (everyone thinks it!).
Now, I'm not claiming to be an expert in growing numbers super quickly, in fact there are people who have grown their following by triple the amount I have in an even shorter period of time, but I have made a significant increase since this time last year and I have often been asked what my "secret" is.

It's definitely not a secret that I adore pretty accessories. Something about them just makes everything brighter! I'm also obsessed with all things blogger cliche, as you know. This is including but not limited to; pink peonies, white marble, copper and selfies. So when the lovely people at Nunuco Design Company got in touch to ask if I'd like to review some products from their website I was absolutely over the moon!
They're a Finland-based company specialising in some of the most beautiful phone cases, stationery and accessories I've ever seen. It kind of reminds me of Rifle Paper Co crossed with Skinny Dip, and I have to say I'm pretty much in love with everything on their website.
