A couple of months ago New Look asked me to be part of their interactive ‘fashion flashback’ timeline, I jumped at the chance to highlight and celebrate the ways in when fashion has evolved over the years.

From the 60’s to the 90’s, every decade has made a comeback in recent seasons. Late last year, and moving into this year the 90’s, in particular, had a big revival. Whether it was ribbed high neck crop tops, or button front denim skirts, or oversized denim jackets, I was into it!

Lifestyle // Lochcarron Lambswool Blanket

Lochcarron lambswool blanket, Sweet Monday home tour
Lochcarron lambswool blanket - £114.99

We moved into our new flat on Sunday. It's still looking a little bare. We have all of the main furniture but need lots of furnishings now to make it more homely. After saying that, one item that we received a little while ago, and have been dying to use, is this beautiful lambswool blanket from Lochcarron

Wednesday Wants // The Culotte Jumpsuit

wish list, culotte jumpsuitL-R: New Look £19.99 // ASOS £50 // Topshop £26 // River Island £45 // Topshop £58

The culotte jumpsuit is something I really want to try. After seeing one of my colleagues in a beautiful navy and cream stripe one, it's had me longing to try one on, and see if it suits me. I think the culotte trend in general, is something many people are afraid of. Shorter girls worry it will make them look even shorter, taller girls worry it will look like they're wearing a jumpsuit that's too small for them. It's can be a tricky item to pull off, but I'm seeing more and more people doing just that. 

When it comes to trying a new fashion style out, I think New Look is a safe bet. They're clothing is so reasonable and they often have lots of different colours/patterns of the same item.

Some of my favourites, that are currently on the high street, are above. Have you tried the culotte, or culotte jumpsuit trend yet? Do you like any of the ones I've chosen?

Internet's Best Date

With so many people now looking on dating sites, such as match.com, to find Mr or Mrs 'right', it brings the question - What would be the internet's best date?
We all are guilty for spending hours a day on the internet, whether it be on our laptop or mobile, browsing the web, or scrolling through our social media apps. The internet brings with it many cultural phenomena, videos that go viral, and a gif or meme for just about anything! 

I thought it would be fun to create my perfect date based on this criteria. It's wacky, and will never be possible, but it shows an insight into someone's personality, and what they enjoy to look at on the internet. 

Mine would have to include Ryan Gosling - preferably I'd be on a date with the man himself, but if this wasn't possibly, I'd settle for him serenading me. I just want to hear those two words... 'Hey Girl!' 



Dinner would be a must for any date, I'm such a foodie. It's hard to pin down exactly what cuisine I'd like to eat. Last week I was asked the question, 'What would be your last meal on earth?'. After having spent at least half an hour trying to come up with something, I came to the conclusion it was too hard a question. I would want ALL the food. So perhaps I should opt for a buffet of all my favourite foods - mussels, pie and mash with mushy peas and gravy, lentil and sweet potato curry, ramen, apple crumble, salted caramel ice-cream... I think I'd put any date off me! 



After dinner, if I could still walk from all the food, I would love to go for a walk along the beach, at sunset, with my French Bulldog in one hand, and Ryan Gosling in the other ;) haha!

A couple of weeks ago, my 'Wednesday Wants' post focused on the pinafore dress, and here is the one I bought. This one is made from a navy corduroy, and is available in Topshop for just £39. I have seen so many of you wearing pinafore dresses recently, that I couldn't resist choosing one.
