Postcard From Antigua

Postcard From Antigua

This week has been rough, I’ve been ill for most of it including the glorious Easter Bank Holiday weekend, which has led to boredom, annoyance, depression, as well as a lot of queasiness. So in an attempt to cheer myself up I decided to relive my Caribbean honeymoon to Antigua

It was only five months ago, but my wedding and honeymoon have become sources of extreme happiness, it used to be when I was down I pinned gorgeous wanderlust pictures of travels I hoped to make, now if I am in need of some cheering up I find just by flicking through my images and videos really does make things better. Do you have something that instantly makes you happy?

Anya Hindmarch AW15

Anya Hindmarch AW15

I always seem to be drawn to the quirky and fun, especially when it comes to accessories, and Anya Hindmarch is killing it when it comes to injecting a little fun into fashion. For autumn/winter 2015, the British designer is embracing traffic, roadworks and road signs with her own unique humorous pun-packed collection. Think speed cameras, chevrons, highway code symbols, reflective surfaces, as well as a whole raft of service-station references from Little Chef to a cute Eddie Stobart lorry

Best Photo Apps To Boost Your Instagram

Best Photo Apps To Boost Your Instagram

A couple of years ago it was all about 140 characters, the trick was the getting what you wanted to say around the 120 mark so to leave room for a hashtag and RT, now the power of the word is kind of being overshadowed a little by everything visual, or should I say Instagram, and I’m kind of loving how the platform has reignited my passion for photography, thanks in part to the amazing photo editing apps that are out there. 

I know what you are thinking social media photographs aren’t an art form, probably not always from me **I’m trying**, but I do love how inspiring Instagram can be, especially when you can see the effort people are putting into getting their images just right. It really is a platform that I’m trying to take more time and effort in, it isn’t as instant as it used to be, but I think that’s the beauty of it.

My Jewellery Habits

My Jewellery Habits

Is rotating your favourite jewellery pieces stuck in a rut or just sticking to what you love? That’s the question I’ve been asking myself recently as my jewellery needs have been very similar day-by-day of late. I’m not complaining, but it got me wondering about my own jewellery habits that I thought I would share how my jewellery look comes together. 

First up, I always start with my arm candy, I have a lot of love for bracelet stacks, pretty watches, and statement bangles. The starting point is generally, silver or gold, nine out of ten times it is silver, just my preference, but as soon as that’s sorted it guides me down which pieces to pick out first. Normally that first piece is my watch, I have a lot, probably too many but I do like to mix this piece up, whether it is changing the strap on my current fav, Shore Projects, I do love the metallic and mint green ones, or going for something a little smarter like the Citizen Eco-Drive, and then I can decide which bracelets will work best with my outfit.
