Fashion | Slogan Styling Ideas

Hand’s up who else is slogan crazy? Whether it’s hats, t-shirts or jackets, slogans are massive in fashion right now. Everyone is wearing them, even the super chic Victoria Beckham. But this isn’t a surprise considering how versatile an item they are.

Chuck them on with leggings and a jacket while you run errands, tuck them into jeans for a casual lunch or team them with a pleated midi skirt and heels for a more feminine look, all are great options.
With the growth of political movements, such as #BlackLivesMatters or empowering communities such as Girl Boss, there has been a rise in people making a clear statement with their fashion choices.

But don’t worry, wearing a slogan t-shirt doesn’t always mean you must make a massive statement. If you don’t feel comfortable with getting involved in politicas, you can go down the novelty route like me. As always, you can see that I am taking my diet very seriously, with this Pizza is my Soulmate tee! This one is unisex, so Joe, the real pizza fiend, can always steal it for himself.

Not sure how to style your slogan tee? I have been scouring scanning Instagram for some great slogan tee inspiration….

I love this Weekend Vibes jumper, shared by fellow Brighton Blogger Everything’s Rosie. This jumper would be ideal with jeans and trainers for weekend walks with Bruno (who I am still to introduce on the blog…)

Lifestyle | Three Ways to Improve Your Sleep

Having an adorable puppy has really effected my sleep, I'm exhausted all the time and have noticed it has done more to my body than just make me feel ‘tired’. A constant lack of sleep can cause serious health conditions. With that in mind I thought I would share some some helpful tips to make sure you get enough sleep each night.

No Screens Before Bed

One of the easiest ways to help yourself fall asleep is to stop using your phone or tablet before bed. This is because the light from the screen suppresses the production of melatonin which is the hormone that makes you feel sleepy in the first place. If you often find that when it comes to turn in for the night you don’t feel like sleeping, then cut out the screen usage before bed. If you want to wind down in preparation for going to sleep, though, you do something like play a board game, read a book or listen to a podcast. Whatever you choose to do, just don’t use your phone before bed. Hard, I know.

Get a New Bed/Mattress

You spend an enormous amount of your life asleep, you should do it in comfort. If you have an uncomfortable or noisy bed then it will result in many bad nights of sleep. This will mean you constantly have broken sleep and can lead to sleep deprivation. You can get cheap beds and mattresses from places like Bedstar. They also provide next day delivery, you won’t be without a bed at all. It is important to get the type of bed that is best for you and your current living arrangements. Take your time and make sure it the one you really want. Once you have your new bed though it might surprise you how much better you sleep.

Sleep Pattern

Something as simple as going to bed at the same time each night can help to get more sleep overall. If you frequently have trouble falling asleep and have tried all of the above then it could be because you don’t have a stable sleeping pattern. Brushing your teeth and getting into your PJs at the same time each night, for example, will train your body into knowing it is soon time for sleep. You could also start to associate going to sleep with listening to a podcast or reading your book for half an hour. All of this will help you to develop a sleeping pattern and it will be even more effective if you do the exact same things each night at the same time.

Obviously it is fine to have some nights when you don’t follow this but generally, if you keep to a pattern you will find you fall asleep better and have a more restful night.

What are your best sleeping tips?

Lifestyle | Last Minute Mothers day gift guide 2017

Another year, another mothers day. Not only am I thankful to have a fantastic mother, who has always wanted the best for me, supported me and loved me, no matter how hard I have made it. She's been a fantastic role model and I honestly believe that I will be happy in life if I achieve even a fraction of the happiness that she has. Mummy dearest is on holiday with my dad, so my sisters and I will be treating my nan this Sunday. But that doesn't mean my mum won't get a pressie! Here are a few things I've got my eye on for her:

Bloom &Wild

My mum loves having flowers in her house, she has a lot of dried and silk ones, but really appreciates a good bouquet of flowers. She loves light colours, nothing too bright or colourful. She's also really good at arranging flowers and I think would love a Bloom & Wild subscription.

Ugg Slippers

Mum can be super glam, and has been called a yummy mummy more than once, but she is a comfort girl at heart. I know she loves her warm snuggly Ugg boots, and I think the slippers would be a lovely gift for when she's working from home, or having a Netflix day.

A good handbag

I guess this Kate Spade bag is more my taste than my mums. But she loves a designer bag, over the years she has collected a few, that give us all bag envy. 

Neom Sleep Kit

I've heard great things about this kit, and know that my mum often finds it hard to sleep (mainly because my dad is a champion snorer!). But what a lovely gift, the contents aim is to help relax your body and and bring you to the calm that you need in order to get a quality night sleep.

Wine Glasses

My mum loves a good old bottle glass of wine. She is a very sociable women, and regularly has guest over, which also means, that a lot of glasses get accidentally broken. Why not be a good daughter and help her replenish her collection?


What person doesn't love being gifted a good fragrance? My mum is currently in obsessed with Estee Lauders Aerin fragrances, created by Estee Lauders daughter. But other great choices out there are Kate Spade, Walk on Air  and the classic Chanel no. 5.

Novelty Mum Mug

No Mother's day is complete without a novelty Mum mug!

Cherish your mummy this year, and spoil her rotten.
