Cue independent ladies fashion boutique - HaveToLove, Gosforth.

The time has come for us to finally accept that Winter is coming, with the those chilly autumnal mornings upon us it's time to reevaluate our wardrobes. 

With the arrival of Autumn and winter just around the corner, comes the added pressure to have an all-new wardrobe that will make you look fashionable as you tackle the brisk chillier weather. I love Autumn layers, boots and tights, but it can be exhausting making sure you are...

If you know me, you'll know that I have a bit of a shopping addiction - i'll hold my hands up high to this one. I have a wardrobe to challenge that of Carrie Bradshaw and 8/10 my clothes still have the tags on. I have no will power so when I see something I like i just have to have it and this beautiful dress from Fash1.com was another one I just had to add to my collection.

Fash1.com is a newcastle based woman's fashion brand...


If you're anything like me, you're getting rather tiresome of this temperamental British weather. One minute Spring is here and in the next minute you find yourself bringing back out your Zara puffer jacket... throw me a bone here! 

With summer just around the corner, it's time to really start considering your Summer wardrobe and at Apricot, they're got many transitional items to help you through the SS17 period and with a name...


I've got a confession to make, until recently I've never actually owned a red dress and I can't believe it's took me all this time to wear this colour.

I know this dress below isn't red, in fact it's a beautiful raspberry colour but I absolutely love it and it was such a steal from the Boohoo website for only £6! Yes you read that right, i do love a bargain. 

The dress fits like a dream and I just love the arm detailing which ti...


I dub this outfit Mummy chic! Today was a day for errand running and even though I had to be in a million places at once I still like to make an effort (at least my version of making an effort in a hurry) of how I look. It's not exactly the most glamorous of outfits but you can't beat a classic long camel coat, stripes, skinny jeans and a designer cross body bag.  Obviously trainers were a must today and these beauties from Ni...


It's official, I am now over this miserable cold, wintery British weather and I'm yearning for the warmth of the sun on my skin! 

We've booked a holiday to Santorini and I'm super excited that I've already started to plan my wardrobe for the week that we are there. Sad, I know, but Santorini is such a picture perfect place I want everything last detail of our holiday to be amazing! Unfortunately for me, we're not...


I cannot get enough of this body con set from Have To Love. I was kindly allowed to choose an outfit of my choice from their beautiful boutique in Gosforth, Newcastle after winning a competition via the Have To Love Instagram page. I was like a kid in a candy shop when i arrived but as soon as my eyes fell on this little beauty it was love at first sight and i just loved the pretty pink packaging in which it was wrapped in too...


I was recently asked by a company if i would feature an outfit of theirs on my social media pages. I've been following this company for quite some time now so, obviously, i jumped at the chance. I was kindly sent the Sienna Floral Shirt Dress in Pastel Pink. Personally, i don't wear prints. I don't know why, i just don't. I'm always more of a neutral tone kinda gal but when i tried the dress on i was over the moon that i was s...
