Scarves are something I don’t tend to accessorize or experiment with too often. For me, they are more a warm, cosy additions that I bundle myself up in during the winter, choosing the biggest, blanket-like thing out there. Come spring and summer, I opt for lighter options and just sling them round my neck. Boring… right? I mean, how many ways to wear a scarf are there? Well, Style By Portobello sent me one of their vintage scarf sets and I decided to set myself a bit of a challenge to see if I could incorporate it into my wardrobe in a few different ways. Well, I’ve succeeded and come up with four ways to wear a scarf, so keep reading, especially if you’ve got a few abandoned scarves in your bottom drawer.
Following on from my Three Breakfast Ideas To Kick-Start Your Day, I thought it would be a nice idea to continue this on to lunches – specifically quick lunch ideas! As an arts student, my contact hours are limited so I spend a lot of my time studying at home. This is great but it means I have unlimited access to the fridge and it is often rather tempting to spend the day grazing instead of taking proper meal breaks. I like to take time out to make food, especially when I’m in the house all day because it gives me a chance to take a break. These can be adapted to fit in with your preferences, but some are more suited for eating at home than taking to work. Either way, these quick lunch ideas are sure to prevent that mid-afternoon droop.
If there’s anything I love more than a new lipstick or pair of shoes, it’s definitely a brand new notebook with fresh, blank pages. Sigh. Well, as if you needed any more of an excuse to buy some more sticky notes or pens, National Stationery Week kicks off on Monday 25 April to celebrate the power of the written word and all the stuff that makes it possible. Keep reading to find out more about it and what I’ve got my pen-loving paw on!
I don’t post much beauty related content on here any more, but occasionally the moment takes me and I just want to take pretty product photos! I thought I’d do a post on my spring beauty picks for the upcoming season, that will probably end up seeing me into summer as well. As much as I love the dark berry shades of winter, it is nice to embrace the lighter shades as the weather gets warmer, and days get lighter and change up some skin care stuff.
