Selection of the giveaway prizes with pink peonies and pink ribbon


1,000 is an even composite number often referred to as a kilo or a grand. It's also the number of followers I reach on Instagram a couple of weeks ago. What made this Insta-milestone extra special is that two of my favourite blogger ladies, and friends - Katie Jane Konstanz and Lois La Mode, also hit the same milestone. So, to celebrate we are hosting a joint giveaway with prizes worth over £300. Yep you heard me right, over £300.

Wedding season is already upon us and last weekend I was happy to be invited to celebrate the wedding of two friends. It was a gorgeous day and I inadvertently managed to dress to match their New York theme where the colour scheme was taxi yellow and blue. Every wedding is different and it can be hard to know what to wear to suit the weather, the formality of the occasion, what suits you and most importantly to be comfortable.

When I worked in retail 10,000 steps a day was a breeze, I could do it by 11am. Now I find myself walking around my car a few times to get an extra couple of hundred at lunchtime or to the printer and back a few times more than I need just to edge closer to that magic 10k.

Welcome to June.

This month is probably one of the most hectic on my calendar for the whole of 2018. Five concerts, a wedding, a family birthday and a day at the polo and that's just on the weekends. With all of these events though comes the need for different outfits/looks so here are some of my favourite pieces I have my eye on at the moment.

The UK weather is nothing short of unpredictable. It can go from snow to sunshine to rain and back again in a matter of weeks if not days. You can leave the house with glorious sunshine and then be caught in a downpour just down the road.

The royal wedding was just under a week ago and honestly I'm still not over it. It was a moment in history which I'm so glad I could be a part of, even if it was from my sofa slightly drunk on prosecco. I hosted a little Royal Wedding party for my mum, gran & James and I decided to make a Lemon & Elderflower 'wedding' cake for us to all indulge in to replicate Harry & Meghan's choice on the day for their own cake. I mean every wedding needs cake right?

As you probably guessed from my best buys for throwing a Royal Wedding party post, I have truly been taken over by Royal Wedding fever. Prince Harry has always been one of my favourite royals, but shh don't tell the others, and when he announced his engagement to Meghan Markle I was genuinely over the moon.

So as mentioned in my fashion fix the other week, things are getting fruity in the fashion world this summer. Dreams of the amalfi coast and freshly squeezed juice have more than likely been triggered by D&G's 2016 lemon print dress.
