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!
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. In order for me to be productive, I needed to put some actual clothes on and make myself look presentable. 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.
It’s that tricky time of the year when it’s difficult to know what clothes to put on. I live in the North East of England and this week alone we’ve had wind, rain, snow and sun. It feels like every week there’s a new storm to contend with – but it’s March! Spring should be just around the corner…
Oxfam have launched #SecondHandSeptember – a campaign to try and discourage people from buying new clothing and accessories for the entire 30 days of the month.

The Chanel Wallet on Chain is the newest bag in my collection, and the most expensive! For that reason I want to make sure I keep it looking as good as possible, for as long as possible. Therefore, I’ve decided to use some leather protect products to help achieve this.
I’ve always wanted to go to Bicester Village, so as part of my 30th birthday celebrations we decided to drive the 250 miles south to spend the day there! I had an idea of what I wanted and managed to find them in Gucci and Valentino. If you haven’t already, check out my video reveal.
Last week I spent a week in Santorini for my sister’s wedding – a breathtakingly beautiful Greek island in the Aegean Sea. I have never taken any luxury bags with me on holiday before, but this time I wanted to use at least one.
I absolutely love my small but perfectly formed luxury handbag collection, because I feel it’s really versatile and it covers all bases for what I need. I use each one in a different way, depending on what I’m doing.
The Longchamp Le Pliage was the bag that started my obsession with totes. Long before I got into higher end luxury pieces from the likes of Louis Vuitton, this was the bag that I used on a daily basis. Hence why it looks like it does…
