A Moment in Paris

Not long ago I took a little 24 hour break in Paris, also known as one of my favourite cities on Earth. The weather was absolutely perfect; not too hot with lots of clouds to break up the direct sunlight (also perfect for photographs!).

The Perfect Summer Skirt

Skirt - C/O ChicWish | Shirt - C/O FatFace

I feel like it's been a while since I wrote a good old fashioned outfit post, with no bells and whistles attached. So here I am, just talking about clothes. I hope it's not too boring in this day and age where basically every blog post has to have something interesting attached to it, but if I'm totally honest, I don't always have much interesting to say!

Sweet Dreams with Leesa

Is it kind of weird to say that one of my favourite things to do is sleep? For real, there's nothing I like better than being all warm and cosy in my bed during the majority of my day. I'm kidding about that part but I really am the biggest sleep fan.

The Tea Files - The Draycott

It's not usual that I post two Tea Files posts so close together, but I was very lucky to be invited down to the Draycott Hotel near Sloane Square to try out their new Wimbledon themed afternoon tea. It seems Wimbledon is the hot theme to go for with teas now, doesn't it?

Maggie Jones, Kensington

London is full of little hidden gems that most of the time I've never even heard of! And of course it's always wonderful to discover somewhere new to visit and recommend to others. So, when the lovely folk at Maggie Jones got in touch and asked me to come down and review their restaurant I was intrigued as I'd never even heard of them before!

Why Holding a Grudge Will Never Get You Anywhere

Playsuit - Hello Molly

I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that at at least one point in my life I have held a bit of a grudge against someone and I'm sure you all know how awful that feeling can be.

The Tea Files - The Landmark, London

The Tea Files are back with a bang and I am so excited to be sharing with you my review of the afternoon tea at the Landmark Hotel in London. This is a hotel I've wanted to visit for quite some time now, simply because it's so spectacular to look at. The main lobby opens up onto the Winter Garden - a stunning area with a high glass ceiling and some gorgeous palm trees. It really is like stepping into another country.

How to Nail Posing for Outfit Photos

Skirt - C/O Chi Chi Clothing | Top - Missguided | Shoes - Oasis (Similar here)

This might be my most requested post ever! People seem to be under the impression that my poses are good, but to be honest even now I sometimes look at my photos and think, "What the hell was I doing!?" However, I have been perfecting the art of looking OTT in public for over four years now so I feel like I have picked up a couple of tips and tricks to making the whole process far less uncomfortable than people imagine it to be.

My Amsterdam Guide

This blog post is way overdue, but it's finally here! My Amsterdam City Guide! Amsterdam may have been one of my favourite cities that I've ever visited, which says a lot. There was just so much to love and I've already started talking my boyfriend into taking a visit there next year (but during tulip season which we sadly missed this time!). If you're thinking of visiting this incredible place, hopefully some of my recommendations will help you out!

Summer Lovin'

All clothing C/O Fat Face

Who else has been absolutely living for this Summer heatwave? I know I have! I've seen a lot of people complaining online about how it's too hot, but for me it's just perfect. Despite being born in the middle of Winter, I'm definitely a Summer baby. And if I have to put up with bitter cold for the majority of the year, then I'm sure they can put up with the heat for a couple of weeks!

My Top 5 European Summer Destinations

Despite the fact that we've been getting some seriously good weather in the UK lately, I've still been feeling the urge to jet off somewhere a little bit more tropical. Sorry, England, sometimes you just need some palm trees and a clear blue sea to remedy your wanderlust!

Why Disney Means So Much to Me

There are two types of people in the world: the ones who love Disney and the ones who just don't get it. I think you all know which category I fall into, mainly just from the title of this post, and while I don't have anything against people who don't get it, I am often bombarded with the same kinds of responses from them:

Mama Kelly, Amsterdam

Dress - Missguided

Between our visits to Bath and Amsterdam, my boyfriend and I celebrated our one year anniversary, so instead of doing presents we decided to book a nice meal out in Amsterdam during our stay. I'm not going to lie, I already knew that I wanted to visit Mama Kelly. After seeing it's amazing pink interior on a handful of Instagram accounts, I knew that it was the place for me...maybe not my boyfriend so much, but he could enjoy the food!

A Weekend in Bath

A couple of weeks ago my boyfriend and I headed to the city of Bath in Somerset for the weekend, after years of really wanting to visit! It's one of those places that feels like it's not in the UK, mainly because it's just so different from any other city I've been to! The architecture is just something else and I loved being able to visit all the spots I'd seen only in photos and movies.

18 Things I'm Excited For This Summer

Dress - C/O St Frock | Shoes - Dune London

I don't know about you guys, but in the Summer I feel like I get so much more done. Not only in terms of blogging and work related things, but just generally when it comes to doing exciting stuff! Last Summer was one of the busiest I've ever had and I feel like I really got to experience it, rather than just sitting at home like I normally do in the colder months.

Bridesmaid Styling with House of Fraser

Top - C/O House of Fraser | Skirt - C/O House of Fraser

Tis the season know what I'm talking, not Christmas silly! Wedding season! One of my favourites, don't you know! 

Now, personally I am a huge fan of weddings, always have been. Whenever I get invited to one, even if it's just for the evening, I'm ridiculously excited. Partially because I can't wait to see what the happy couple have done for their big day, but mainly because I get to dress up. And, if you're a bridesmaid it's even more special, of course! 

There's nothing like being chosen as one of the bride's special girls and being able to put on a gorgeous dress for the day that you might not be able to wear any other time. But it can often be a challenge if you're a bridesmaid (or a bride!) and you're unsure of how to style up a dress that's essentially been chosen for you. So I was very excited when the lovely people at House of Fraser got in contact and challenged me to style up a beautiful bridesmaid's dress from their collection.

House of Fraser is basically my go-to location for anything occasion related, especially since they have a huge variety of brands to choose from, so there really is something for everyone. It's also the place to shop for bridesmaid's dresses, and I often find myself browsing the website imagining what I would choose if I were getting married! 

I chose this gorgeous top and skirt combination from Coast after absolutely falling in love with the blush pink tones and the floaty tulle ribbon that adorns the top. Together, they make the ultimate bridesmaid's outfit - elegant, classy and timeless. As you can imagine, the outfit is gorgeous quality and I just feel amazing sashaying around in the skirt. The movement in it is truly beautiful, as I'm sure you can tell from the pictures! I also love that the skirt can be dressed down after the wedding, perhaps with a black roll neck jumper for an Audrey-esque look. 

I chose to wear the top strapless, but it does come with detachable straps for those who aren't as keen on the whole strapless vibe. The tulle ribbon can be tied multiple ways which will give a lovely variation if all of the bridesmaids are in the same dress. 

As for accessories, I went with a classic pair of nude strappy shoes (you can't really go wrong!) and dainty silver accessories including these gorgeous leaf earrings that just add a little something extra. All finished off with a sparkly clip for the hair! As a bridesmaid, I would want to feel confident and pretty on the day, but I wouldn't want to wear anything too outrageous and distract from the bride! 

I'm pretty much in love with this look and now I'm just wishing that I was actually a bridesmaid! One day! 

Let me know what you think of my take on a bridesmaid look and if you've got any weddings coming up! x
