Valentine's Day Looks‏

With Valentine's day veering its head once again, it's time to get your outfit on point. Whether you're spending it with your other half or your girls, no matter what you do, do it in style.


Hitting the dancefloor?

If you're off dancing - go bold or go home. Nothing says romance like a little red dress and this H&M number ticks a lot of boxes - great colour and even greater texture - lace. Wear with a platform sandal to reduce the pain of all that dancing. And for that cold walk home - a duster coat is a must!

Cocktails with the girls

Catching up over cocktails with the girls? Mix laid back and luxe by teaming a smart one shoulder dress with a biker jacket. An ankle strap heel carries on the simple but chic vibe.

Dinner and drinks

An LBD never lets you down and this H&M piece is a hottie with its off the shoulder cut. Throw on a boyfriend blazer to keep the look timelessly classic and as for shoes - only a court heel will do!

Cosy night in

Who says staying in means you have to compromise on style? Not true in this satin set from Topshop. Finish off the look by pairing with a pretty paisley robe.

The Emotional Stages Of Your First Day Back At Work After Christmas

As told by Gossip Girl...

The night before realising that that Christmas is a mere memory


Setting your alarm to before 9am


And when your dreaded alarm sounds


But then you get to work and see everyone you've missed and it's okay


Opening your mailbox to hundreds of emails...


Asking and telling everyone you bump into how your holidays were, until it's the 100th time when you're just like


Trying to get back into the swing of things, be motivated and remembering


But then you remember all of those lie ins, endless after eights and second helpings of turkey


And realising that this is 'normal' now, until next Christmas

2015 My Resolutions


I rarely make resolutions, not sure why not, but new year - new start and all of that...

Eat healthier
My diet is something I need to look at in the New Year. I used to be really good at sticking to restrictions at university (like not eating chocolate until the weekend) but this year I've let that slip and am reaching out for one more skittle far too many times. I know the food isn't doing me any good so now it's the New Year I'm clearing out my cupboard of the majority of my 'treats.'

Get more sleep
Towards the tail end of last year this has become true as now I live in the city centre I immediately get more time in bed (#WINNING) but I still need to get more sleep as I'm always exhausted and have to rely on red bulls on a Friday to get me through the day (mention not sponsored by red bull by the way). I think this resolution will tie in nicely with the above and both will benefit each other. Anyone who knows me knows how much I like my sleep - try and get me out of bed and you aren't my friend!

Continue my fitness plan
I'm proud of what I've achieved in 2014 fitness wise and it's something I'm conscious about continuing as I'm finally starting to really enjoy it, plus it's a great portal for me to release stress. So my resolution for this is to aim to cover 20k minimum a week in distance and develop my upper body strength as that's where I'm weakest.

Stop stressing
I'm one of those annoying people who's all or nothing. I'm either as cool as cucumber and relaxed or I sometimes get stressed super quick. So I'm going to try and take everything with a pinch of salt going forward and not let things or people who do little for me control so much of my emotion.

Travel more
I love exploring new places and getting lost so this year I intend on seeing more of the world. On the bucket list is Mexico and LA. I'm heading to Prague in the summer for a wedding which I'm really excited about.

I haven't done enough volunteering lately so this year it's something I need to invest more time in.

Continue to push myself out of my comfort zone
I think it's really important to push yourself as a person. I've talked about this a few times before but I like to 'scare myself' a few times a month in doing things that I would normally say 'no' to. I wouldn't mind getting back into my dancing and hopefully some more activities that push me out of my comfort zone.
