    Fresh lips 💕

    I’m a bit obsessed with lip balms…I get separation anxiety if I don’t have one within my reach and I have hundreds of them scattered all over the house, in my handbags, pockets, the car etc. I hate the feeling of matte lipsticks as the trends seem to be at the moment and am getting fed up of the horrible line you get around your lips as lipstick wears off so I went on the hunt for a solution! Glosses wear off too quick, balms over mattes just seem to make the lipstick go bitty 🤷🏻‍♀️ so just short of giving up I stumbled into the Fresh shop on Marleybone…

    My all time favourite bag

    For my 30th birthday a few years back my mum said she wanted to buy me a handbag so with that I went on the hunt for the ‘one’ to mark such an occasion! As you would expect the usual came to mind- Burberry, Kate spade, Todd’s etc but none of them them seemed quite unique enough, so I started looking closer to home! I am lucky enough to live smack bang in the middle of the Cotswolds where I am surrounded by talented individuals making beautiful handcrafted items and with a closer search I found Regmeg. Meg has a beautiful workshop in the heart of Burford high street and…

    Tis the season

    Does anybody else get excited about season changes?!! Don’t get me wrong, I am 100% a summer baby but there is something exciting about waking up to morning mist on the fields and the beautiful colours of changing leaves, not to mention the clothing options! Country fashion is based around shooting season so naturally the clothes are more autumn based and I am ever so excited to get my boots out and tweed jackets! Summer this year has been amazing and everything you hope for but with that I don’t feel resentful to the cooler weather at the moment, so much so I braved the boots yesterday on my lunch…

    Lacura coffee scrub

    So I picked up the lacura coffee scrub from Aldi the other day and I had to blog about it as this product is amazing!!!! It comes in 3 scents- orange, chocolate and coconut but I got the chocolate one. The scrub comes in a generous size and is £6.99 Its 97% natural and is both vegan and paraben free too!!! If you like a good scrubby scrub then you will love this!! It’s a mixture of coffee and sugar mostly and also had oils in to moisturise your skin, so once you’ve rubbed it on, you leave it for 5 minutes to do it’s magic! Honestly, my skin has…

    My Hair Journey

    So today I went and visted my amazing hair stylist Hannah (@hannahstackwood) at Matthew Curtis in Chipping Norton. I first discovered this salon early this year through Instagram when I was searching for a simple hair up do and visited for the first time in May. The salon is a high end salon with a very luxury yet comfortable feel. You want for nothing and can even have a glass of complimentary wine…! (Bonus). The decor is beautiful with a retro feel thanks to the old style tv, comfy chairs and colour scheme! My hair was long, over processed and very black from years of home dye over bleach so…

    It’s my birthday tomorrow!!

    So tomorrow I turn 32 and I am so excited as my darling husband has got me a beautiful pair of Fairfax and favour Regina boots 😍😍 (I will share pics tomorrow). I just love the classic style of these boots and the interchangeable tassles make a nice touch to customise for outfits. I find since moving more rural, my fashion has really been inspired by country style- both practical and long wearing and looking good too! What more could I want?? I’m really inspired by HRH the Duchess of Cambridges understated country style and also the likes of Toff Georgia too for something a little more on trend. This…
