My Classic Wedding Outfit

In my mind I’ve worn a thousand different outfits to my wedding. A tea length dress with a ballet tulle skirt, very Dégas. A white dress and leather jacket, heels not included. A sleek two piece outfit, no top underneath because I’m chic and risquée. The very real short, sparkly, 70s style minidress I saw online but couldn’t track down. These flitted in and out of ideas of weddings I had but never planned, with men and women I’ve never known or met. Just daydreams, really! And the real thing couldn’t have been more different. In my dreams, my outfit was so clear. The aesthetic was there. In real life, it was a bit of a jumble to get to the classic wedding outfit I ended up with. Let me explain.

How I Went Freelance

Hi friends! Maybe you’re here because you want to know how to go freelance, but I’m going to say it right off the bat: I don’t know! There’s no one right way. On today’s episode of the Monthly Memo I’m talking about how and why I started freelancing. I haven’t done a Monthly Memo since April because… to be honest, there’s not a lot going on in lockdown! And my only updates sucked. They were like “I’m missing my wedding today” and “I miss my dog a lot” – not exactly fun, blog worthy material. On the other hand, since April I’ve been working away at becoming a freelancer. And here we are.

My Skincare Counter

the body shop skincare routine - vitamin c cream, facial stimulator, drops of youth serum

I’ve had a love/hate relationship with skincare. I’m definitely not the person who has always had a retinol, or a vitamin C, or gua sha in her skincare routine. Instead, I’m a solid: I put moisturiser on regularly and I clean my face before bed every night. I’m interested in the rest of it, but I’ve never really taken the time I needed to learn about skincare in a deeper way. Until now, that is. I’ve not been wearing much makeup lately, and I’ve replaced my makeup ‘me time’ with skincare ‘me time’!

Pinspiration For The Home

I live in rented accommodation so I can’t paint the walls or do anything drastic to change my flat. But, a girl can dream! Pinterest has become a new source of inspiration for homeware, home decor and general interior design for me. I usually don’t know where to start, but I’ve learned a few things about what I really like in a home. ‘Pinspiration for the…’ will be a series where I share some of the posts, ideas and products that have been inspiring me from Pinterest. Pinspiration for the Home (episode one) looks at the three main styles that I’ve developed after some long hard hours spent pinning.

Top tips for new runners

According to social media, a lot of people have started running for their government allocated exercise of the day. It’s a great way to get cardio in, but my friends and I keep having the same conversation: it’s so hard. Going from someone who never runs to ‘a runner’ is never a smooth transition. When you start, you feel too self conscious, you keep having to stop to catch your breath, or you’re never motivated to go out for a run in the first place. So, I went to the fountain of running wisdom: my mother, a four time marathon runner. She did one for each kid she had. I asked her for her top tips for new runners, and this is what she sent me…
