5 Days in Dubrovnik

As a big Game of Thrones fan Dubrovnik was very high on my list of places to go, mainly so I could recreate Cersei's walk of shame *just kidding - or am I...?*.  It definitely lived up to my expectations, so I thought I would put together a little Dubrovnik guide for those of you who are maybe thinking of heading there yourselves.

Is Gymshark worth the hype?

If you're reading this post, chances are you have been sucked into the world of Gymshark by their beautiful athletes, and from seeing everyone on Instagram rocking these insane high-waisted leggings that somehow make every booty look incredible. Well, I'm here to give my honest thoughts and opinions on whether Gymshark is 100% worth the hype.


Spoiler alert - yes it is. If that's all you wanted to know, then there's your answer. There are some things in their collection that I think are better than others, and some ranges that are definitely much more suited to specific figures and workout styles however.

Why you need to add straight leg jeans to your wardrobe

I've always found shopping for jeans extremely difficult and I'm sure I am not the only one! But, I have finally found a style of jeans that I am super comfortable in, and that I feel fit me and my style to a tea.

Up until the past year, you wouldn't have seen me dead in any jeans that weren't extra high waisted, super stretchy and very skinny, but your girl has massively branched out. Now, wearing anything remotely similar to the Topshop Joni jeans is out of my comfort zone and straight leg jeans are at the heart of it. Don't panic though, I definitely have not abandoned the high waisted style - I don't think I ever could!

Things you need to know before getting your first tattoo

It's been over 6 months since I visited the lovely Gee for my first tattoo, and I've been meaning to write this blog post ever since. It was the best thing I did in 2018, and my tattoo has massively improved my body confidence and honestly I can't see myself ever regretting it. There are some things however that I think are important to think about and to know before you get your first tattoo, so here goes!


Finding An Artist
Make sure you have found an artist whose work you really love and who you feel that you can trust. I found Gee's work on Instagram after she tattooed Suzie, and as soon as her books opened I knew immediately that I wanted her to tattoo me. Her work was dainty and exactly what I was after.

The truth behind the Gucci belt...

If you follow me on Instagram you will have probably seen my Gucci belt featured in near enough every single one of my outfit posts. It's the biggest material purchase I've ever made, and something I thought about for the entire year that I was saving for it - which by the way, I wholeheartedly recommend doing when you are thinking of purchasing something the same cost as a holiday... 


The cost per wear for my belt is probably less than £1 now, and I think that shows just how much I love it. It can dress up even the most simple of outfits, I particularly love how chic it looks with a pair of black straight leg jeans and a black turtle-neck tucked in, but I do also love using it as a waist belt to pull in dresses like this gorgeous one from the Sarah Ashcroft In The Style collection, to accentuate my waist. It's honestly just the most versatile accessory, and instantly makes any outfit look more stylish and expensive.
