A West End Wander.

I forget how much I adore autumn until it’s here; in the lead-up, all I can cast my mind back to is soggy leaves, constant drizzle and cold, dark evenings… but really, I live for the sun-drenched days and golden leaves!We’ve been making the most of the crisp mornings by exploring Glasgow, and this time we headed west for a look along Byres Road. I wore one of my favourite outfits at the moment; this Missguided Wrap Top in white, along with my Mango Pleated Midi Skirt – this is so flattering and the navy shade goes with everything!...

Three Fun Breakfast Ideas.

* This post is an advertisement feature for Light* & Free. If you follow me on any sort of social media, you’ll know I’m crazy for breakfast! It’s basically the reason for getting up in the morning.I usually opt for yogurt first thing, as I find it’s easy to make it interesting everyday – topping it with fruit, nuts, peanut butter or coconut chips. I never get bored of my creations! Last month I went to a creative workshop event with Light* & Free, and as part of the day they put on activities for us to try. There...

October Goals.

I’m quite excited about autumn being here, although yesterday I almost cried twice because it was so cold – truly, it was really horrendous weather! Don’t judge me, I’m made for sun.I guess it’s time to just accept that I’ll spend the next four months indoors, but yay for cosy evenings, pumpkin spiced everything and candles everywhere! 01. Say yes to more sun! I can’t wait to squeeze in one last little summer holiday next week as we head to Italy! Mmm Nutella and pizza. Nutella on pizza.I’ve been hoping to visit the Amalfi Coast for so long, but...

Five Apps Every Blogger Needs.

I always say that a bloggers day never stops – I count time spent on social media as hours clocked, and I’m constantly thinking of ideas for new content, planning Instagram posts and more.I spend a lot of that time on my phone – in fact my iPhone is never far from me at all times! It just helps me to stay ahead of my to-do list, as well as keep in touch with my readers.With that in mind, there’s a lot of Apps I use to help me do my blogging thang… MosaicoThis is actually a recent discovery for me, but since VSCO updated, I’ve been in need of something to help plan my Instagram feed.I’ve said before (in my How I Take My Instagram Pictures video) that I don’t really subscribe to the whole Instagram theme thing, but sometimes you do want to have an idea of how it will come together.For that, I use Mosaico. It shows your feed in full, and you can add photos from your library to get an idea of how they’ll look. What’s more, you can go in to ‘ghost mode’ to see what your feed will look like if you delete a picture or two. Very handy! Bloom & WildI’m calling it, fresh flowers at the click of a button is an amazing concept and so helpful if you need...

How To Improve Your Instagram Photos.

If there’s one thing I get asked for often, it’s how I take my Instagram photos! I’ve been promising a video on this forever, but I thought I’d throw in a few tips on here too. Instagram is one platform we don’t seem to be getting sick of – despite their many changes to the algorithms and App itself. I love expressing myself through photos, and I think Instagram allows us to share snapshots of our day without overthinking it.For me, it’s a bit like a mini blog – a more relaxed way to share my life. 01. Get...

7 Things I Learned When I Became A Gym-Goer.

So, it’s started… I’m preaching about fitness! I seriously never thought I’d ever find myself writing a post like this, but here we are. Shall we just embrace it? I love, love, love the feeling of smashing a good workout, and I wanted to encourage any other newbies to get involved – because I remember how terrifying it was when I signed up.When I first started committing to the gymming (meh, almost rhymes) I would feel so nervous the night before that I’d struggle to sleep! Not normal, surely? I’ve never ever been a fitness person, and even now...
