Wrapping Up for Winter

Knitwear is something you can't really overlook in the cold winter months, and it is a really good idea to invest in some good quality pieces which will actually keep you warm and will also last you year after year. Blanket wraps have been a huge trend in recent years and they can really spice up an outfit, especially if you choose a bold colour such as red and layer it over monochrome, as I have styled this outfit. However, my personal favourite benefit of blanket wraps is that you can sit down and cosy up in them no matter where you are!

NYE Party Dresses

NYE Party Dresses

New Year's Eve is the one night a year when you can go absolutely all out with your party attire and nobody will bat an eyelid. It's definitely the time for sparkles and lots of them, so I have picked out a few of my favourite glitzy party dresses on the high street for you to browse through in case you haven't found your perfect NYE dress just yet.

The Cambridge Interview

Ever since I was a little girl I have had my sights set on going to Oxbridge for University. After years of positive reinforcement from my teachers, family and friends about how intelligent I am, it was always something I just expected to happen. However, after a rocky few years and a huge drop in my own self-esteem, I was very close to not even putting them down as a choice on my UCAS application. It was a very last minute thing, as I decided to put an application in for Cambridge for Modern & Medieval Languages (French & Italian) only a couple of weeks before the early applicants deadline. I hadn't spent ages tailoring my personal statement to impress them so I wasn't really expecting much, but I knew if I didn't apply that I would be disappointing little 7-year-old me.

Christmas 2015 Wishlist

Christmas Wishlist

Christmas is my favourite time of the year, and since I was little I've always put together a wishlist of things I'd like to receive as gifts (although it used to be in the form of a letter to Santa!) Obviously I don't expect to get everything, but I find it's nice to give people an idea of the kind of things you like in case they are struggling to decide what to get for you.
