How I Learned to Love Mondays

The start of the working week, the end of the weekend. Monday is certainly a day that gets a lot of stick and I can totally understand why, but what if I told you that there were a few little tricks to help you make Mondays great again. Over the years I have learnt a few things about embracing the hated day and Monday has even become one of my favourite days of the week. I know, can you believe it! Today I thought that I would share some of my secrets to loving the day that so many of you dread. It is time to learn to love Monday! Let's dive straight in...

Sunday Vibes Playlist

Sunday is one of my favourite days of the week. I have always thought of it as a day that everyone is able to be completely chilled out and totally themselves. My favourite way to enjoy a Sunday is to spend time doing something that I love with the people that I love, even if that is just relaxing with our favourite magazines. I know that a lot of people still use Sundays as a real family day and I think that is great - it is so nice that there is one day in the week that is just that bit more chilled out than the rest. It's pretty good isn't it? However you like to spend your Sunday, it is about to get even better. Today I thought I'd share some relaxed, feel good tunes to make that great day into the perfect one. Let's get listening!

9 Wardrobe Staples & Why I Love Black Clothes

Wardrobe staples are something that I had never really thought about until the other day I read a post all about how to create a capsule wardrobe. Despite the fact I love the idea of a capsule wardrobe, in reality that level of control & minimalism just isn't me. However, despite not being convinced to take on the ultimate challenge, I did pick up a few really great tips from this post that have helped me to streamline my wardrobe. Yes! The main tip was to work out what your go-to wardrobe items are and why you love them, so that when you invest in new pieces they will be things that you are going to wear over and over - rather than just a load of seasonal junk. From doing exactly that, I feel like I have got a real sense of my wardrobe stripped down to its basics and today I am going to share with you my newly discovered wardrobe staples.

Tip Top Tableware

A year ago if you had asked me what my favourite thing was to shop for was, then I probably (definitely) would have told you clothes, clothes & more clothes. Now, don't get me wrong I still love shopping for fashion, but there seems to be a new kid on the block and I just can't get enough of them. Homewares, I'm talking about you. 

I'm not sure where this newfound obsession has arisen from, maybe it has come about because I have crossed the border into the the 'terrific (terrifying) twenties' & adulthood. Or perhaps it is because I have found yet another thing that allows me to express myself, result! Whatever it is I am interiors obsessed and loving it. Long may it continue I say! Anyway, in my bid to hoard as many beautiful pieces to fill my future home with as possible, I seem to have amounted rather a lot of what I like to call 'crockery'. Today I thought I would give you a run down of some of my favourite tableware pieces, in a bid to encourage you to join me in my newfound quest for the cutest crockery around.(spoiler alert: I think I may have found it already!). 

Style File: The Modern 80s

Anyone else a fan of the 80s? I love it so much that I often think that I was born in the wrong era. It was definitely a time of amazing, experimental fashion (if you block out the leg warmers & stirrup pant) and much to my joy the trends of the day, like huge shoulders, big hair & chunky earrings, seem to be back with a modern twist and I'm lovin' it. Today I thought I would share a recent purchase that is giving me a small slice of what it felt like to be dressed up & ready to go in the 80s. The oversized blazer of dreams.
