My favourite autumn trend


    You know what I love the most about Autumn? Apart from the pleasant chill in the air, the longer nights, the gold and red colours in nature?

I need more Red in my life


    I don’t know what’s been going on lately guys, but all I’ve been buying is black. More jeans, more tops, more frocks… all black. It’s a downright travesty.

My Ankle Booties Wishlist


  Ankle booties wishlist by katnappd featuring black leather booties     Ankle boots are the marmite of fashion, I find. You either love ‘em or you hate ‘em. To me, they were a slow burner. I used to think they look weird with skinny jeans or dresses but it turned out I wasn’t wearing them right and the fact…

OOTD: Date day in Liverpool


  I had a random date day with hubby at Liverpool on Thursday and you know what? Even after eating my bodyweight in super tasty Moroccan cuisine and drinking my way through a pitcher of their mint infused lemonade I felt like a million bucks in this skater shirt dress from SimpleBe.   It’s probably the most comfortable dress I…
