I am possibly the worst when it comes to self promotion, so stick with me here while I try to do just that in this post. You see, I’ve been nominated in the UK Blog Awards 2017 and I’m feeling a mixture of pretty chuffed, overwhelmed and darn excited. And now I need your help, it’s all about getting those votes in.
I love November. I love the change in weather, I love being able to wrap myself up in all the layers, drink mulled wine and start all the preparation for Christmas. Because I’m a bloody big kid at heart.
I’m a Christmas baby, being born right smack-bang in the middle of Christmas and New Year, meaning I’m a Capricorn. And I pretty much tick off every attribute given to my zodiac sign.
Living with IBS means you face a daily battle to make sure you keep your gut as happy as possible. I’ve got this down to 11 things I do daily that definitely make all the difference.
My mum and I nipped into Selfridges over the weekend for a spot of wedding shoe shopping – more to come on that later – and upon leaving noticed a John and Pearl pop-up shop. Tempted by rose gold and concrete furnishings, we delved inside.
These sandals are bat-shit cray and it only makes me love them more. Meaning I can make space in my collection for these fluffy mules, pronto.
I’ve been obsessed with stars ever since my grandad passed away 16 years ago. Once he’d gone, my mum and I would say to each other that he would always be there, looking down on us, as the brightest star in the sky. And from that day on, I’ve been drawn to absolutely anything with a cute star print.
Sound the klaxon, we’re getting into party season people! Strictly’s gracing our screens, the supermarkets are stocking tins of Quality Streets and the stores are full of sequins. All this means one thing, bedazzled, embellished-to-the-max shoes of dreams, ready to get their groove on.
I’m cold. I’m typing this post as I get shipped off and on delayed trains, trying to make my way to the end of the line. I’m wearing my Burberry trench and my purple animal print scarf which I’ve had forever but I think it’s time for an upgrade.
For the first time ever, I went to an appointment about my IBS and didn’t leave 10 minutes later, in floods of tears. While that might not mean much to you, to me, this was a BIG deal.
