A 24 year old living in Norwich. I started my blog back in 2010 as a 17 year old with too much time on my hands. I bloody loved it.

I started up again in January 2017 after quite a mental breakdown. I thought I would love to blog again but all I've realised is that it's all absolute bullshit. This fashion and beauty platform is so fucked. Materialistic and built for consumers. I don't want to be a part of this. It has taken the inspiration and creativeness out of it for me. I only enjoyed taking these photos and creating this content to bond with my little sister anyway.

Yeah, I love fashion but it's not the be all and end all. Who really cares what anyone else is wearing. The only reason we care is because we want to be seen wearing the latest trends. It's about how we look to everyone else...

Look at me 
Look what I have
Look how fashionable I can be
Look at how expensive my taste is
Look at this plate of overpriced food
Look at my £600 shoes that I bought for 1 photo
Look at my shitty flat-lay of carefully organised plastic


This doesn't mean I'm any less passionate than before. I still lust over designers. But instead I'm appreciating the beauty rather than battling in my head that I can't afford that shit. I'm so bored of wanting stuff. And it's so liberating to finally say 'fuck it' and just not want to buy stuff. I don't need more stuff. None of us do.

"I like to wear and eat my money - I am fashion, shopping, food obsessed.
I am wholeheartedly in love with fashion. I love nothing more than creating outfits and lusting after other peoples style. I absolutely love to travel, becoming engrossed in different cultures and all the fascinating people along the way. I am a huge foodie - mostly everything evolves around food for me! I also have a particular love for health and fitness, photography, music and interiors.

My perfect day would start with a huge stack of buckwheat pancakes in a trendy-health cafe, people-watching the gorgeously stylish on the streets of Amsterdam. Followed by some boutique shopping, strolling along the canals, perfect photo opportunities with no effort. Many coffees, multiple purchases and just enough cocktails later and I'd slump down into a deep, cosy sofa with a good book, my favourite blogs and maybe some Made in Chelsea. And of course food. Make it a burger!

Enough about me, I do hope that you enjoy my blog as much as I love to write it.
Write to me, I'd love to know more about you!"

I want to punch January 2016 me.
And do you know what? I didn't actually give a fuck about you. That was a lie. It was a completely selfish thing to write.

"Look at me
Talk to me
Notice me"

But don't.

Over and out
