The Inspiration Behind 2015


 

I wanted my first post of 2015 to include my New Year’s resolutions, but I didn’t want to post for the sake of posting – hence, here it is, nine days into the new year, when – finally – I feel inspired. What brought on my motivation? Ashley Graham.

 

Ashley Graham is a plus size supermodel (she’s worked with Vogue, Elle and Love, among others). She looks a bit like Eva Mendes (one of my biggest girl crushes of all time) so, obviously, she’s beautiful – after all, she’s a model – but it’s her acceptance of her own body shape and her mission to make the fashion industry (and media in general) understand that beauty comes in all forms.

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year


As it's Christmas Eve, I thought I'd share some of my favourite tree decorations with you - they pretty much sum up my idea of Christmastime: traditional yet magical. Not much more is to be said, as I'm enjoying the festivities rather than blogging about them.... But I wanted to wish you a wonderful Christmas!

Christmas Sparkle

  Christmas is the perfect excuse for all things sparkly, right?
This party season I'll be wearing bling jewellery (layered up and unapologetic, most likely during the day, and over a cosy knit), fluttering my eyelashes to reveal black, glittery eyelids (unexpected but fabulous for the office Christmas lunch) and carrying glitzy clutch bags (sure to outdo any disco ball) for dancing with the girls.
 The most important thing to remember when doing sparkle? Don't wear it all at once. 
 





Clutch: Anya Hindmarch Valorie at The Outnet (sold out in silver but available in purple and copper)
Necklace: Mikey London (mine is ten years old but similar in the current collection)
Drink: Classic G&T*




*Drink responsibly, kids - and remember that the Scottish limit has been lowered (don't drink and drive).

Elisabeth May


     

 Yesterday I paid a visit to a gorgeous boutique in St Andrews called Elisabeth May. Established in 2010, the boutique is named after the Grannies (Elizabeth and May) of founder, Natalie Kerr. Natalie has almost 15 years experience in retail management and visual merchandising and, after discovering a gap in the St Andrews market for 'covetable buys' and 'something not everyone has', decided to set up shop.
