It’s August and yesterday I went out in a waterproof jacket. Fully zipped up, with the hood up. So much for summer, eh? I had so many plans for this summer, including a couple of festivals (and you’ve probably seen how Y Not Festival went last weekend) and I’ve got a trip to Brighton coming up next week. I don’t think I’ll be sitting on the beach with an ice cream as apparently it’s going to rain while we’re there – brilliant! I’ve recently bought a couple of pairs of sandals but it looks like I won’t be wearing them until next year now if the weather carries on like this! I’ve been living in my Dr Marten boots for the past couple of weeks.  View Post


You should know by now how much I love a good city break. Whether it’s Barcelona, Amsterdam or even just a weekend in London, packing for a summer city break can be tough. Unlike beach escapes where you can throw a few bikinis and a pair of flip flops in a case, city holidays need a carefully considered wardrobe.

City breaks are naturally more active than beach holidays, as you explore all that the city has to offer. With the wrong clothing, this can be a disaster — blisters and sunburn anyone? I was stupid enough to get a horrendous sunburn on my back when I was in Barcelona in June and I will definitely be doing all I can to avoid this on future city breaks! View Post

On Friday, I made my way over to the Peak District in Derbyshire for my first festival of the year – Y Not Festival. This was also to be my first time camping at a festival and I was really excited to spend the weekend in my tent, experience the festival fully and see some of my favourite bands. Unfortunately, the weather was not on our side at all as it rained heavily for most of the day on Friday and then during the night on Saturday meaning that the ground was completely ruined and the site was deemed unsafe for the public – the festival had to be called off. However, despite all of this, I did enjoy myself so here’s the best bits of Y Not Festival 2017View Post
