From The Archive: 2013

With magazine placements on the side, 2013 was the last year I juggled blogging as a side gig. Things get a bit girlier in the style department too, with a lorra love for the sixties and a 'hive!


A winter’s day, a bitter snowflake on my face

You know when you put get dressed- and on the rare occasion, love every single item you’re wearing (much like a toddler wearing a Disney Princess dress, Converse and a baseball cap) you just can’t bring yourself to change? For me this was what happened when I got dressed here, and although it was certainly a bit of a bold outfit (colour blocking faux faur, colour mixing and print clashing? Who DO I think I am)- I was quite fond of the busyness and even though my plain black skirt gave me the ‘it should be me’ look as I walked out, I think it went ok…

Also- a wee bit of exciting news! I designed a bag- this bag in fact! A few months ago when Susy from the lovely Baia got in touch proposing the idea- I jumped at the chance, and along with a few other talented ladies, created a bag under my own name- which is beyond surreal! I wanted to go for something quite simple and timeless, and ultimately something that would pretty much go with anything- a wardrobe staple if you like. Seeing as maroon is pretty much my favourite colour from September-March (may have something to do with the fact it was my Primary school uniform), it seemed like a pretty safe option- and being pretty roomy, it’s been accompanying me everywhere ever since. Baia have also produced 25 of these bags for sale, so if you fancy investing in a little something special I’d head over there too (I’m biased, but it’s really quite lovely too).
