A Well Deserved Night Away OOTD#29

Yesterday, after having worked a crazy amount of days in a row, I had booked a night away at the Durham Royal County Marriott hotel. I love Durham and the Marriott is a firm favourite of places to stay. Anyways, I had the best day so I thought I'd share the- mainly outfit- details... We [...]

Time To Catch-Up…

My blog seems to have become a common place for sporadic breaks- of which causes numerous mental battles. Only recently is it becoming apparent that its because my interests are changing but my blog hasn't. Anyways, before this post gets too bleak, I wanted to explain my current interests, so you know what to expect [...]

Fight Against Plastic: An Experiment

With Boots announcing their plan to ban plastic bags in the news this past week, it reminded me of my aim to write more on being environmentally conscious. With time on my hands, I'm able to read up on and learn different lifestyle changes I can make. In this post, I'll include the things I've [...]

How I’d Like to Spend My Summer

A month ago today I finished my first year at uni and surprisingly I've now only just been thinking of all the things I'd like to do with the rest of the time I still have off. Since I've been writing them down every time I thought of a new one, I thought I'd share [...]

Why My Bedroom is *RIDICULOUSLY* Tidy

*'Physical clutter causes mental clutter'* Dr Emerson Wickwire has explained that clutter in the bedroom affects your sleep because of its mental impact. The clutter activates the brain and therefore disrupts sleep. Without knowing that logical statement, I've always lived by a clean room helps towards a good sleep. So in today's post of being [...]

What I’ve Been Up To…

Usually, if I've missed a couple posts, I don't find it too difficult to get back into blogging (touch wood, I've never been gone much longer than that). But the past few weeks have been so full on, I don't know where to start. Maybe we should start with an achievement. Last week, I finished [...]

Bank Holiday Weekend OOTD #28

The past few (5 to be exact) posts I uploaded have actually been going towards one of my modules for uni. However, writing them made me realise they're the type of things I want to continually post. The difficulty being, it takes a lot more time, which until the end of May rolls around, I [...]

Taking Inspiration from the Harris

Something I don't write a lot about on this blog, is where I get my inspiration from to help with my course. If you didn't know, I'm currently coming towards the end of my first year of University, studying Fashion. Due to the creative nature of the degree, I'm always aware of what could inspire [...]

Broken Nature Exhibition- Milan

Today- 22nd April- is Earth day, therefore finding it very appropriate to write about an exhibition I visited at the Triennale di Milano titled 'Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival'. I found each piece fascinating, so I thought I'd highlight a few of my favourites in a post. Figure 1 & 2- Plastiglomerate One [...]

How I’m Stopping Contributing to Fast Fashion

Globally, the second most polluting industry is fashion. This alarming information appeared in Stacey Dooley Investigates 'Fashion's Dirty Secrets' (BBC, 2018). Since then, I've gained a growing awareness to the state of the environment and the particular effect the fashion industry is having on it. After reading various sources, I've accumulated my own list of [...]
