Island Hopping in Hvar | OOTD*

Hey beach babes!

Hope you're all well and have been enjoying our unusually lovely summer! As most of you will already know due to all my Insta spamming, I recently got back from the most glorious trip to Croatia. My gorgeous gal Lizzie and I visited Split and Hvar for 10 long days of drinking, debauchery and a little culture for good measure. 

We both only brought hand luggage with us (because really, who wants to fork out an extra £40 each way for a couple more pairs of shoes that you probably don't need anyway) so when packing, I tried to choose pieces and outfits that took up minimum space but provided maximum results - basically I proceeded to try on every possible outfit I was taking and sent over many a mirror selfie to Lizzie for approval. 5 hours later (I jest), I was ready. The cute AF outfit I'm featuring in this post is from Boohoo and I just LOVE LOVE LOVE it so I hope you do too!

Sunglass Sass | Getting Camera Confident with Feel Good Contacts*

 Hey friends,

Isn't it funny how a little bit of imagination can turn your brother's grubby uni garden (if you can call it a garden) into an edgy shoot location? Ok so as well as imagination you also need a few minutes to remove the empty beer cans from shot, but ah well...

I recently ordered these gorgeous Matte Black Bronze Polarised sunglasses from Feel Good Contacts. I love Polaroid sunnies because the frames are always really flattering shapes, but also they're anti-glare lenses, which is SO much better for your eyes than regular ones! I also love how the slight sepia tint on the lenses ties in with the bronze arms. So Fetch. My brother and I took these photos a few weeks ago and it got me thinking about how much more confident I feel in front of the camera when I have a pair of sunnies on, so I decided to put together a little post featuring a few of my tips on how to ace that photoshoot and just own it!

Cutting Cravings & Stopping the Snacking | Boombod Review*

Hey cutie-pies, 

Is it just me or did Summer just appear from absolutely nowhere? What I thought was going to be a week long mini heatwave seems to have turned into actual Summer and as thrilled as I was that I didn't need to take a jacket out with me, I really wasn't prepared for my #SummerBod in the slightest. 

Engage thrusters, everyone to their battle stations, Thunderbirds are go!

Anyone that knows me well knows I've been struggling with an extremely slow metabolism for a while now and it's been really getting me down and pushing me into one of those vicious cycles of snacking rather than eating proper meals, then conveniently forgetting about the snacking, then eating the meal anyway! I was feeling pretty low about myself around a month or so ago when an email popped into my inbox about Boombod. I must admit I was dubious when I saw the words 'Appetite Suppressant' but was also extremely curious to see if it would help with my snacking!

What's A Haim? | A Weekend Away in London with Sn-ap Travel*

Hey my lovers,


Have you ever been to a concert that's just absolutely blown your socks off? I've never really gone full fangirl for any artist in the past, and although I absolutely adore going to concerts and the feeling of listening to live music, I've never been one to scream for the artists or to cry at the songs.

That all changed on Saturday 16th June when I witnessed the masterpiece that is Haim perform at the Alexandra Palace. 

One of my absolute best friends Megan IS one of those crazy fangirls when it comes to Haim and booked our tickets months ago, so we'd already began planning out our cute girlie weekend when I was contacted by the Sn-ap Travel team about trying their new direct coach service to London!

In the Fine Print | Style Spotlight: Prints!*

Hey guys and dolls!


 I'm back with another post from my Style Spotlight series; and today I'll be talking to y'all about prints. I was inspired to write this whilst doing some shopping recently in the Trafford centre in Manchester, where I came across some totally gorgeous printed pieces from Warehouse that I knew I wanted to discuss in a blog post! Also thank you to everyone that's messaged or tweeted me about my Style Spotlight series; I've been getting such fab feedback from you guys about it, and I'm honestly so glad you're all loving it.

I've scoured the internet for my favourite prints on the high street right now, so let me know in the comments below what you think of my picks, and if you've got your eye on anything right now!

Printed blouse AND funky printed wallpaper. Could this photo BE any more appropriate? (Spoken in the voice of Chandler)

#ShesTheDon | The Hottest Fashion Collab Right Now


Hey angels!

If y'all follow me on Instagram then you probably already saw, but I went to a pretty epic event with Boohoo on Thursday night. It consisted of one too many G & T's,  (who knew that was even possible..) Tiff and I cutting some shapes on the dancefloor, and an amazing performance from the woman herself, Stefflon Don. Boohoo seriously know how to throw a launch party, and the venue was full to the brim with celebs, press and a few bloggers, so I was totally honoured to receive an invite!

This is me en-route to London, in my fave Violet Black 'Brooklyn' earrings and a camo shirt dress. (Those edgy vibes)

Feeling Sassy in Slovakia | OOTD*

Hey my sassy señors and señoritas!


As you all know, I recently went away to Slovakia with my bae of all baes, Tiff. As well as exploring abandoned castles and eating ALL of the carbs; we (I say we, but the magician behind the lens @creatiffmedia should take the credit here) also took some pretty snazzy photos...

Cause you know, When in Košice!

Waiting for a strange drunk man to leave so I can continue posing. Obvs.

Just Dough It | Happy Dough Lucky Review*

Hey pals,


As you may already know, your girl loves carbs. A LOT. So when I heard there was a new restaurant in Nottingham with the word 'Dough' in the title, needless to say I got rather excited. I threw on one of my many pairs of striped trousers, (seriously though, my collection is getting out of hand) donned my favourite sock boot heels from LOTD and jumped into the car with my bestie/chauffer/personal photographer/fellow carb addict Tiff, to head to Happy Dough Lucky for all the munching.

Spring Lustlist | The Birthday Edit*

Hey beauties, 

So Spring is finally upon us, the Sun has come out of hibernation and there are no more beasts from the East, West or any direction in sight. YAY. Not to mention it's almost April (AKA my birthday month) when I'll be turning the ripe old age of 25. Basically I could not be happier right now. With each new season comes fabulous new beauty releases and as I feel like I'm pining over so many of them, I think it's time to do a little Lust List to get it all out my system.

Oh and for those of you that need some beauty present inspo... this one's for you! (April 23rd mark your calendars)

What You Saying? | Style Spotlight: Slogan Tees*

Hey Fashionistas!


I'm back with a lil post on a key trend I'm lusting over right now. I've been trying to set myself a rule of making myself wait two weeks (to be totally sure I want something) before going and buying it; but when shops like Zara have items in stock for literally 0.00005 seconds, that's not always possible. 

What I'm trying to say is, here's a list of stuff I'm loving right now, that I'll probably end up buying
all oƒ most of in the very near future. I'm really enjoying producing regular fashion content for you guys, so I've decided to make this blog post into a series, where each post covers a particular trend.

First up? Slogan Tees!

Have The Perfect Reykjavacation | Iceland Travel Guide


Hey beauties, 

As you may all have gathered by now, I absolutely adored my trip to Iceland. It's 100% a place I see myself going back to, probably in the summer to do more of the North and East sides of the island. We had planned to visit the breathtaking Diamond Beach, but as often is the case in Winter, the roads along our route were closed off due to snowstorms and avalanches. 

Honestly though, we couldn't have wished for a more perfect holiday, and I really feel like we made the most of our time there, and saw everything there was to see in Reykjavik and the Western side of Iceland! To be honest there were things I now can't unsee, but we'll get onto that later... For now, stay tuned for my absolute must-dos in Iceland's capital.

Sub Zero Skin Heroes | My Winter Skincare Essentials

Hey lovelies, 

Firstly do ya like this post's title? I do admit I giggled quite a lot when I thought it up. (And yes, before you ask, I am that person that laughs at their own jokes a little too much..)
The products I'll be talking about in this post were my absolute saviours whilst I was away in Iceland. It wasn't as cold as I expected it to be, but the wind chill over there is something else! If you're taking a trip to anywhere that's a little chilly, or your skin's just in need of some hydration, read on cause I got you covered!

Cosy Chic in Reykjavik | OOTD*

Hey angels, 

I hope you're all keeping well, and are warm and toasty in your homes while the Beast from the East passes over the UK! I must say, having just been in Iceland where they receive mountains of snow every day, it is funny how useless and ill-prepared us Brits are at the slightest flurry.  

Ah well.

I'm back with another fashion post today featuring the most stunning and cosy Aviator Jacket from LOTD. It kept me so snug whilst in the sub zero temperatures of Iceland, I knew I had to tell you all about it when I returned back to the motherland!

I actually saw this gothic-style brickwork and thought - "This is gonna match my jacket, I HAVE to take a picture!"

The Perfect Lazy Sunday

Hey munchkins, 

I feel like life has been so busy lately that I honestly don't remember the last time I had a proper lazy Sunday. (Or a lazy any day for that matter...) You know the kind where you just veg out all day doing the absolute bare minimum except for the few things that make you happy? I thought it would be fun to put together a little post featuring a few of my favourite ways to pass the time on a Sunday! So here goes..

Where My Galentines Gals At? | OOTD*

Hey lovers, 

Valentines Day is almost upon us, and as I'm eternally single, I'll be spending it by continuing on the Pancake Day celebrations with my gals. (Cause lets be real, Pancakes beat boys any day of the week). If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know I already had an early Galentines date with one of my long time besties, Hemma. We drank lots of yummy wine, ate far too much food, and she (being the excellent best friend she is) took a few snaps of me in this cute little combo from Boohoo!

Dare to Flare | OOTD*

Hey babies,


How are we all? I must say I was feeling pretty worse for wear when I took these photos, but this photoshoot with Leah was SO much fun that it instantly healed my self inflicted hangover wounds. She's looking for more bloggers to photograph too, and she's such a lovely girl and a gorgeous mumma to be! She'd researched all the pretty locations ahead of our shoot and I'm so happy with the street-style vibe we got with the photos!

Losing Some LBs | Shake That Weight First Impressions*

Hey angels, 

I'm here with a post about weight loss today. I feel like it's been a bit of a contentious issue on the web recently, and while I do understand the reasoning, at the end of the day if someone wants to lose a couple of pounds (or a couple stone for that matter) then quite frankly that's their prerogative. 

Insert sassy Britney Spears gif here...

 Anyway. I was recently given the opportunity to test out a two week plan from Shake That Weight, and after a little research on the brand and the products I'd be consuming over the two week period I said YES YES YES and signed myself up to the plan.

The Tea Dress of Dreams | OOTD*

Hey lovelies, 


Oasis has been a brand I've admired for years, I remember being little and getting so excited when my mum wanted to shop in there, cause it meant I got to look at (and dream of owning) all their pretty dresses. Ten years on they're still the first shop that springs to mind when I need to find an occasion dress - be it for a night at the theatre, a family birthday, afternoon tea at Betty's...

Another Day, Another Car Park | OOTD*



Hey lovelies,


I'm back with another fashion post! Yaaaaaaaaay! Last week I was sent some cute AF pieces from Tobi to style into killer outfits and feature on the blog, and I've been having so much fun shooting the images and putting the posts together so I really hope you enjoy.  

Before you start asking, "Who took these glorious photos Izzy?" I have to give a massive shoutout to Tiff at Creatiff Media for these beautiful pics. Obvs she's my bestie so I'm probably slightly biased, but she's an amazing photographer and I've been loving all the photos she's been taking of me! She's actually offering shoots now at a really good rate, so I'd definitely get in quick as she's getting booked up already!

The team at VÖOST kindly sent me the full range of vitamins to try out and give you my thoughts on, and I've been testing them out over the last few weeks, along with a little help from my friends and family of course!

In the Faux with Cari's Closet | OOTD*

Hey loves!


I was recently sent this beautiful faux fur coat by the Cari's Closet team and I knew the second I opened it I'd be featuring it in a blog post cause it's just so darn cute! It's also potentially the softest, fluffiest thing I've ever owned too, therefore I'm obsessed. (This was basically me when I first put the coat on...)

JORD Wood Watches | Review & Giveaway*


Happy New Year you beautiful people!


I had the most fun shooting the photos for this post so I hope you all love it as much as I do! I received this gorgeous watch a couple of weeks ago from JORD Wood Watches - a company I've followed and admired for a while cause of their creativity and uniqueness; so it was an absolute dream come true when they contacted me asking to collaborate on a blog post. They also very kindly asked me to host a giveaway - but more on that at the end...


They kindly allowed me to pick out a watch of my choice, and I went for the Frankie 35 in Zebrawood and Navy because it was just so striking. I opted for the 35 series because they're slightly more petite, and I didn't want the watch to look too chunky on my small wrists.
