In case you haven’t heard, today is Blue Monday – the so-called most depressing day of the year. Apparently the day is based on an actual scientific equation involving the weather, personal debt levels and the disappointment of failed New Year’s resolutions.
So in my ongoing attempt to read the entire internet/never go more than 45 seconds without checking Facebook, I’ve come across several articles about these reversible sequin ‘mermaid pillows’.
WTF! Pillows You Can Draw On! … OMG! These Pillows Are Made From Unicorn Tears! … Holy Balls! Sequins Are a Thing!
I think my husband and my bedroom floor would both agree that I have a lot of clothes. Many of them are random pieces from Topshop or H&M that I bought for a tenner and wore once but can’t bring myself to throw away.

One of the best things about the time between Christmas and New Year’s is the sales. Sure, it makes me cry a little to see the things that I’ve just purchased as gifts at full price are now marked down to the extreme… but it’s a great excuse to pick up a few new items.

Anyone who has attempted to diet or detox during the month of December knows that it’s a ridiculous concept.

I have a sort of love-hate relationship with shoes. Because I have really large feet, it’s really really hard to find shoes in my size. And it’s even harder to find them in the UK. I’m also tall, so I’m constantly on the hunt for the perfect heel that’s not too high but still super cute.

A couple weeks ago, I posted about how my adorable 1-year-old nieces are nailing the art of best friend dressing. Of course, when you’re under the age of 10 you can pretty much get away with wearing anything and coordinating with your twin sis is sort of expected. But those two mini fashionistas reminded me of this adult duo that I stopped in NYC awhile back.
