Recently I've come across GoCustomized.co.uk a ridiculously simple little website where you upload photos of your own and create a personalised phone case. I'm the kind of person that absolutely loves having things that no one else (or not many people) has, so having a phone case with my own photo on ticks all the boxes. 

I chose a hard case (my phone is dropped. A LOT) with a full wrap, so my photo goes all the way round the case. It feels very sturdy, lucky for me and my level of clumsiness, and fits so closely it doesn't add too much extra bulk to my phone. 


You can make your own iPhone 6S case HERE along with loads of other phone models! A perfect present for anyone, or even yourself. 


Merry Christmas!

CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE | What To Buy Him For Under £20


Christmas, gift guide, lifestyle, men, style, under £20, wish list, wishlist, tesco, H and M, ASOS, Urban Outfitters, him,

Men can be bloomin' hard to buy for. Fact. The number of times I've almost bought the exact same book I bought my dad the previous Christmas is more than I'd care to admit.. But as I said in PART ONE, I adore finding perfect presents for people. It's refreshing making a wishlist for men's stuff, sometimes it gets boring looking at all that pink/floral rubbish... Just kidding, I love you girly stuff, please forgive me.

So here are my picks for what to get the man (or even woman, I'd certainly be happy receiving most of these) in your life. I know most are cliché, the scarf, the hat, a mug. But it's the thought that counts right?

CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE | What To Buy Her For Under £20

under £20, women, gift guide, Christmas, H and M, ASOS, Urban Outfitters, ban.do, unicorn, skinnydip, phone case, cushion, candle, New Look, pom pom, wish list, wishlist, lifestyle, style,

I love Christmas, as I went through my teens it lost a bit of the magic for me, I probably thought I was too cool for it. Typical. But now I can't get enough of it. Buying presents for people is genuinely one of my favourite activities too, I love shopping after all. But the feeling of 'YES! That'd be perfect for *insert relative/friend/colleague name here*', it's just so oddly satisfying. 

But for those people who are a little stuck for a woman in their life, a friend, girlfriend, mum, sister maybe, I've complied a list of inexpensive but gorgeous presents perfect for any woman - or man, this is 2015 after all.  Maybe even me, hint hint, nudge nudge. 

Stay tuned for PART TWO - What To Buy For Men Under £20.

My hometown Winchester is genuinely one of the nicest places I've ever experienced at Christmas time (this year the Christmas lights turn on was featured on The One Show, yeah, no biggie). Here's a little photo diary of how I'd spend a day in Winchester over Christmas.. 

WHAT TO DO: Ice Skating at the Cathedral, shop at the Winchester Christmas Market

LIFESTYLE | November Favourites

black boots, Boots, candle, ELLE, favourites, IKEA, Kate Moss, lace up, lifestyle, lipstick, month favourites, New Look, pom pom, Primark, style, fashion, home, home decor,

It's been a while since I've done one of these monthly favourite posts, it usually because I'm not organised enough. Shocker. But there have been a few things that I've been absolutely loving recently, therefore chewing the ears off my friends/housemates/family about how much I love them.. Sorry guys..


black boots, Boots, candle, ELLE, favourites, IKEA, Kate Moss, lace up, lifestyle, lipstick, month favourites, New Look, pom pom, Primark, style, fashion, home, home decor,

Lace Up Aquazzura Dupe Flats - Primark 


Recently a friend and I decided to go for a shopping trip in Leeds. When I say 'shopping', I actually mean 'Primark'. £87 later, I returned with these beauties (among many other things of course). I know I'm super late to the bandwagon here. My shoe-game has been pretty weak recently, (sorry trusty Converse), so for £10 I welcomed myself to the Aquazzura Dupe party.


Gingerbread 'Vinter' Candle - IKEA


As you can tell by how little is left, this candle is almost constantly burning. It fills my room with the most amazing gingerbread-y smell. And if I burn my vanilla candles at the same time it smells too good. (Sorry for going all Scream Queens Candle Vlogger girl on you there). Plus how pretty is the frosted glass?!

December ELLE 


I just love this cover, aka I'm a stereotypical blogger, I know I say it enough, but still. I love Alexa, those eyes, phwoar, and the styling. I never buy magazines but just had to grab this one. The little Benefit mini may have helped to sway my opinion too..


Deer Skull Silver Ring - Rose Waterfall Garden


I had my eye on this ring for months, never quite being able to justify buying it. So when I saw it had gone on sale I bought it before I even had a chance to think (read: check my bank balance to see if I could actually afford it). I have this strange love of deer skulls, is that weird? Also the horns and mouth are lethally sharp, so it doubles up as a self defence tool. Always making my money go further, see?

Fur PomPom Keyring - New Look


IT'S JUST SO FLUFFYYYYYY. Okay I'm back. I love this on my keys or as a bag accessory, it makes me feel like I'm part of the Kardashian/Jenner clan (I wish, sorry not sorry). I've got my eyes on a deep burgundy coloured one too, because obviously one giant fur pom pom keyring is not enough?!

Marble Notepad - Tiger


This is my 'Budget Book' - hahaha. No but seriously. My disgustingly bad spending habits are now logged neatly in this, in a hopeful attempt to curb such habits. No luck so far. Will report back soon. 


Circle Silver Necklace - Depop


I love my silver jewellery. This is so simple, a slightly longer chocker style and so delicate. It makes my almost completely Primark outfits slightly less.. Primark. If you know what I mean.

Kate Moss Lipstick - Boots


As you'll know from my Life Changing Lipstick post I'm now one of those gals who I never thought I'd be, one who actually wears lipstick. This I keep borrowing off my housemate (thanks honeyyyyy). I love the current beauty trend of vampy deep berry colours (who'd have ever thought those words would come from me?! Beauty trends?!)

Black Ankle Boots - New Look Premium 


If you don't have a pair of black ankle boots in your wardrobe, stop reading this immediately and go and buy yourself a pair. You know when people talk about 'staple wardrobe pieces'? They are most definitely one. My last pair featured in many a outfit post, but the time had come to refresh, renew (read: they were falling to pieces so I had to buy a new pair). These are a New Look Premium offering, so a little more pricey, but hopefully won't fall apart so quickly!

What are your November favourites?
