Freddy is one of my biggest style icons and so I thought I’d wrap up my collection of posts based on her as my style inspiration with an outfit inspired by her pretty, girly style. I headed down to London, where Freddy takes most of her blog photos, to really get the Freddy vibe going and trotted round the capital in this beautiful outfit, which was pink and white of course.
For us Brits the summer holidays are about half way through and elsewhere in the world people have been off school for weeks. Weeks off school sound great (just think of all the lie ins) but all that free time can get boring. It is getting to that point in the holiday where it can be hard to think of things to do to fill up all the time so I thought I’d suggest a few free or very cheap ideas.
Have a picnic
Having a picnic is a cute, cheap idea. Arrange to meet up with friends and tell everyone to bring one piece of food each – soon enough you’ll have a whole picnic spread for next to nothing!
Go for a walk
Going for a walk is a great way to explore your local area as well as being a fab way to get exercise. I personally love going walking in my local park as I’m a fan of walking in nature but you could also go for a walk in a more urban place; go and explore your city!
Go to the cinema
Going to the cinema has been a classic meet up idea for decades and nothing can compare to watching a film with your friends on the big screen. Cinema tickets, if you get offers, can be cheap or alternatively you could set up your own ‘cinema’ at home. Choose a movie, invite your friends round, buy a couple of bags of popcorn and you’re sorted!
Visit another town
There’s often hidden gems mere miles from where we live which we spend our lives unaware of. Research into beautiful places in and around your local towns and cities – you’ll be surprised by what you find; there’s a treasure trove of beautiful places to discover out there.
What’s your favourite thing to do in the summer? Tell me in the comments below!

I admit that I haven’t perfected the art of taking a flatlay, like a lot of things to do with blogging and the photography that comes with it, I’m still learning. However I have collected together a few tips and tricks to boost up your flatlay game and show off your products in the best way possible.
In the morning before school it can often be a rush and things like doing your hair are obviously not going to be top of the list of things to do for most people. I know the struggle of looking in the mirror debating whether to use your precious couple of minutes making your hair look presentable or actually packing your bag for school. As a self confessed nerd I always tend to make sure I’m ready for school (I’m such a baby I just really don’t want to get into trouble…), but unfortunately that means my hair usually ends up looking like a scarecrow. So, learning from my mistakes, I have collected my top quick, simple and pretty hairstyles to make your morning routine a lot easier.
I did my last ‘what’s trending right now’ post on the colour yellow but there’s another colour which is equally as in style – red. Classic, pretty and awfully sexy, red never truly goes out of style. I’ve collected my favourite red pieces I’ve seen online and in store and there is also a new addition to my posts – different pieces I’d style them up with. Click on the links to shop!
When going on holiday you don’t want to be lugging giant perfume bottles around. Firstly, there’s the risk of the glass bottles cracking whilst you’re travelling (which is always going to be devastating isn’t it?) and they also take up precious space in your case. Continue reading
Ahh, the dreaded, scary colour that is yellow. I don’t know if I’d ever be able to carry it off without looking like a bumblebee but I know lots of people who can wear it all year round and look stunning. Whilst out shopping yesterday I noticed there seemed to be yellow everywhere – my sister even picked up a yellow bodysuit! This trend doesn’t seem to be stopping going into autumn/winter as I even saw yellow coats so I thought I’d make a ‘what’s trending right now’ post centred around it. As always, click on the images to shop!
This mustard yellow coat is very eye catching and is a very bold way to incorporate the new trend into your wardrobe. This would look stunning layered over a multitude of winter jumpers and great with denim, a very beautiful statement yellow piece for sure. This was actually the piece I saw which inspired this post!
