I found some really nice sports-luxe trousers from Very. They can be worn at waist height with a fancy belt, fitted top and block heels for a casual evening look or lower slung with a hoodie and trainers in the day. So versatile for Spring/Summer!

I found some fat laces from B Boy Laces so now my trainers finally look proper old skool.

If I’m going to wear summer makeup and an outfit that’s pretty, it’s going to have to be tropical! Click here for where to buy each item.

I always feel that I verge on the modern glam-rock side of alternative style when I go on a night out so I put this together. I’ve just realised this look would also be great for a festival if you replaced the heels with ankle boots or wellies.



I’ve really struggled to find cruelty free shampoo for coloured hair, that has a decent use-by date on it and a mouse that gives a natural look. Read my review of these two here.

Beauty isn’t all about complicated skincare and haircare solutions, sometimes your household products can help too. Read my review of Beauty Kitchen Hand Wash here.

I absolutely love this colour of Zoya nail polish! A pretty medium 80’s kind of pink in daylight, tropical pinky-orange in the evening and almost illumines orange in bar/club lighting. Read my review of Zoya nail polishes here.


Practical and natural Dr Organic lip balm. Read my review here.

Could this limited edition packaging be any cooler. Nope.

I like Chai tea with milk and sugar so I thought I’d give this a go. It’s a really nice spicy-sweet milkshake.

I usually make my own smoothies but I’ve been too tired to keep up with shopping for fresh ingredients so I bought this. It did give me a boost of energy and was thick enough to water down by a third so it lasted for hours. However, I did have a big sugarless slump several hours after I stopped drinking it.

My bloke found this pad he’d had for a while but not used. He said it looked cute and wobbly just like me, ha! I love that it matches my pen.

My mate was gigging with his band The Breath at my mates bar MASH in Macclesfield so he gave me a lift down there. What a lovely gig! I always find it funny how many muso’s around Greater Manchester are friends, I mean it’s hardly a small place.

The backyard is doing really well, thanks to my Dad ^_^

My bloke got a little accidental visitor. The Bluetit was surprisingly chilled out considering, and left when it’s mates called to it through the open window. Much nicer than the giant pigeon we had last time o_O

    Dude, I just tried Rebel Kitchen’s Chocolate flavor…it tastes just like a (healthy?) Yoohoo from my childhood! So good!

      I love the chocolate ones too but have a hard time tracking them down.
