Here comes the summer’s son.

I don’t have a summer holiday booked yet this year, but that doesn’t stop me coveting a whole new wardrobe of sun-appropriate threads… Summer style —and I mean sun-drenched, frolicking on the beach, wandering through dusty medinas and lounging languidly on the terrace, cocktail in hand— is my absolute weakness, despite the fact that I wilt instantly in temperatures over 25°, and my skin turns lobster red at the slightest sign of a sunbeam.    My dream destinations are always

Style evolution.

Style, or rather, my recent lack of style, has been at the forefront of my mind a lot lately. A year spent indoors, socialising only with my boyfriend, his sister (with whom we were a support bubble), and virtually over Zoom, has meant the attention I pay to what I wear each day has dwindled exponentially. Loungewear has naturally formed a big part of my day-to-day uniform but, in the early months of this year, remaining in my pyjamas from

Alex loves Adam.

It’s been a long while since I put together a ‘what I’m packing for’ post, but I feel the occasion definitely calls for it!

By exploring the Centre through the women

You’d have thought, having made the decision to move up North, that I’d have invested in a good raincoat well ahead of time, right? Wrong. Well, partly.    I have great options for keeping me warm in the depths of winter, but right now I’m severely lacking something waterproof that will take me through this transitional season of ‘somewhat chilly, but exceptionally damp’ and not have me too bundled up against the chill and therefore unprepared for it to get

wiwn, Sept.

With both Awards Season and the London Design Festival upon us, this month has been all about smartening up my act a little and hunting down a few statement pieces guaranteed to turn heads, whilst still retaining my love of comfy casual.. For the Northern Blog Awards this past weekend I was delighted to discover Manchester-based fashion brand Lavish Alice, who hooked me up with the most fabulously swishy black satin one-shoulder asymmetric-hem dress**, which made me feel über-glam and
