Birthstones - Diamond (April)

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, right? For some people yes, for others diamonds just aren’t that exciting. Add in the fact that they are super expensive, and the dupe diamantés can sometimes look too fake, and styling for April’s birthstone Diamond is no easy task. As a transparent gemstone selecting colours was tricky, and I didn’t want to end  up with a board full of greys and white. So for this colour scheme I took some inspiration from the rarer pink diamonds (did you know diamonds actually come in a wide range of colours?) and created a palette of white, silver, greys, hushed pinkRead More →

Sharing Saturday - Geeky Girl Bloggers

In honour of International Women’s day this week I wanted to bring attention to a group of women who deserve recognition; geek girl bloggers! The celebration of women comes with messages of inequality, a reminder of why feminism is needed and the gender gap between men and women. One I am keenly aware of is that in the geek world. As seen by my regular feature Geek on the High Street, geek fashion is often limited to just the mens and kids sections. Women aren’t geeky, they don’t like Star Wars, comics or superheroes…. yeah, right! In the last year I have had the fortuneRead More →

Sharing Saturday - tried and tested recipes

One of the things I love about Pinterest is the wide array of yummy recipes people pin. I have had a recipe board for yonks, and recently have started adding Atkins/Keto diet recipes to a diet recipe board too. The problem with pinterest is that you never quite know what you’re going to get from a recipe or a DIY idea. So this week I’m sharing with you some of the recipes found on pinterest that I’ve personally tried and tested. There’s some personal pictures mixed in, however, I don’t have photos of all my attempts sadly.   Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars   UsuallyRead More →
