Moving Home: Inspiration

Posted on by Zoe

When it comes to spending, Topshop, Boots and Space NK have remained consistent mainstays on my bank statements. But, ever since the advent of adulthood, some other unexpected names have been appearing on the list, like John Lewis, Ikea and the oh-so-pretty Homebird in my Cheshire postcode. Spending money on my digs has become a new and dangerous pastime, where I feel like I just can’t go on without a white, ladder shelving unit, or … Continue reading

The Private White VC Twin Track Jacket

Posted on by Zoe

When it comes to Sundays, there’s nothing much that can beat a jaunt into the English countryside under unblemished, blue skies. And when it comes to English threads, I don’t think many do it better than Private White VC. You know how a lot of labels these days love to stamp out their lineage in big, bold, printed claims, e.g. “Made In Britain”, “Fabulously British”, and so on? Well, a little bit of research will … Continue reading

What’s your favourite movie soundtrack?

Posted on by Zoe

It will come as no surprise to those that know me, that my favourite movie soundtrack is this one. On the date of the movie’s release, I had organised a night at the cinema. I settled into my front row seat cradling a box of salty sweet popcorn, fizzing with excitement (not just at seeing a tattoo-spangled Gosling), and sat transfixed at the screen for 2 and a half hours. I remember walking out with damp … Continue reading

My New Autumn Kicks

Posted on by Zoe

There’s nothing quite like a pristine pair of shoes to kick off a brand new season. With autumn well and truly on its way, I’ve found the age-old task of outfit selection even more difficult, and I’ve penned it down to footwear. Having worn my Birkenstock Arizona’s the entire summer, I’ve been feeling a little confused as to where to turn next now that the weather calls for jeans that are a little toastier, and … Continue reading

3 Reasons Why September Will Be All Kinds of Awesome

Posted on by Zoe

Every year, just like clockwork, the final days of August send me into a state of grief and mild depression at the thought of winter being just around the corner. Whilst my Aussie-drenched Insta-feed mocks me with sunny snaps and excitable captions (“Summer is nearly here! *sun emoji* *bikini emoji* *happy-face emoji*), I’m dramatically staring out of my window with a pained expression, dreading the seasonal doldrums that are coming for me, the inevitable cold, … Continue reading

My Favourite Breakfast Smoothie Recipe

Posted on by Zoe

I’ve flirted with healthy eating in the past, but that’s all it’s ever been, and as hard as I’ve tried, I’ve really struggled to ever stick to a healthy diet. But these days, you can find me Googling where to buy ‘bee pollen’ (the new superfood, apparently – if it’s good enough for Mille Mack, it’s good enough for me), or even rustling up one of Deliciously Ella‘s newest recipes. So unlike me, I know. This is … Continue reading

The August Playlist

Posted on by Zoe

Wowza. How did we end up in August already? The sweetest season of the year is sadly flying right past my eyes, so I’m taking this opportunity to quell those “SUMMER’S NEARLY OVER” woes, and bundle together a whole handful of sun-soaked songs (and a sneaky couple of Hozier tunes, because I think I’m in love). Maybe, just maybe, these will help to bring that delicious heatwave back? Yeah, sun? Let’s not waste any more … Continue reading

The Best Music Reads (In My Humble Opinion)

Posted on by Zoe

If you know me well enough by now, you’ll know that I love a good blog. I’ve previously written about my all-round favourites here, but I thought I’d make this one all about music, as that is the backbone of this blog that you’re reading right now. Whaddyaknow! Whether I’m on the hunt for some new jams, wanting to read up on the latest under-the-radar bands, or I just want to know how Refinery29 scored … Continue reading

Abersoch: My Seaside Escape

Posted on by Zoe

As you may all be well aware from my Instagram, I spend a LOT of time beachside. Though I call a little part of Cheshire my home at the moment, there will always be an invisible string pulling me back to the little seaside village that I was lucky enough to grow up in, and now that summer is well and truly upon us, I can’t help but come running back home to drink up … Continue reading
