I am generally a very casual dresser. A tshirt and jeans is my staple outfit and most of my clothing is from the high street. However, I like to elevate my looks with high end accessories. I can throw on a blazer, a preloved handbag and a designer belt and it just takes things up a notch!
I am not a gamer. I had a Playstation 1 when I was younger but it’s not something I’ve ever been REALLY into. Having spent 8 weeks at home in isolation, I was looking for things to fill some of my time. That’s when I found out about the Nintendo Switch.
While my handbags aren’t getting much use at the moment, there is one accessory that is – my Apple Watch. I’ve recently upgraded from the series 3 to the series 5 and I love some of the new features. I’ve also picked up some new watch straps too!
For a while now I’ve really wanted to take on a project bag. I hoped to find an item that was old and unloved and give it a new lease of life! I began my search on eBay and it wasn’t long before I came across the designer bag I was going to transform…
The world is a very strange place at the moment. Our routines no longer exist and the majority of us are working from home. For me, the novelty of sitting in my pyjamas all day quickly wore off, I ended up feeling like a bit of a slob.

I think I’ve finally found a happy medium between looking put together and feeling comfortable.
This is the first bad word I’ve had to say about any luxury brand ever, and I hope its the last. I don’t like being negative about anything or anyone, but if I can protect some of my readers from having the same experience as me, I feel it’s best to do that.
Talking through my best and worst purchases of 2019. I didn’t go on too much of a shopping spree, but I did buy a few things. I also had my 30th birthday last year so that was an occasion I wanted to mark with something special. Among the hits, there were also a couple of misses…
I’ve always thought I was a big wallet kind of girl. I have so many store cards, I hoard receipts “just in case” and keep everything and the kitchen sink inside my purse. I’ve come to realise that I use about 20% of the cards I have, and the rest is just taking up room.
A Keepall has been on my wishlist for quite a while. For weekends away, I was lugging around a small suitcase which seemed a bit too much for most trips. A Keepall looked perfect for my needs, but I definitely didn’t have the funds to buy one brand new!
The Kate Spade Daniels Drive Abigail is the bag I reach for when I want a black bag, big enough for everyday essentials but not too big. If is so versatile and robust, I couldn’t be without it. Take a look at what fits inside…
