Making Gifts More Meaningful – 3 Ways To Personalise Jewellery & Watches 

Over the past few years I’ve taken more time to *really* think about the gifts that I’m giving. 

I want them to be true joy-givers and to have meaning behind them. That way I know that they’ll become gifts that their receivers truly treasure.  

This year, as part of my partnership with accessories brand Olivia Burton (who as you know, I LOVE), I’m sharing how I’ve made my gifts more meaningful. 

If you’re on the lookout for last minute gift ideas, I hope that this post helps you to navigate your purchases with heart.

Recapping The Philips Steam Sanctuary At Lime Wood Hotel

What a way to kick-start the summer! If you follow me on Instagram you’ll have seen that Ella and I recently hosted an incredible retreat with Philips, at the beautiful Lime Wood Hotel in the New Forest.

The purpose of our retreat was to bring together a group of our favourite blogging girls, to get to know the new Philips Steam&Go Plus handheld garment steamer. Which as you know, I’m already a huge fan of.

(I’ve literally used nothing else to prep or refresh my clothes since getting it!)

What ensued, over our 24 hours together, was a truly magical retreat. It was filled with LOTS of chat about clothes (what else?!), how to care for them, and a dialogue around mindfulness and how we can all look after ourselves better.

It was a trip I’ll never forget, and I’m so excited to relive it with you on the blog today . . .

How I Prepare For A Blog Shoot + Tips & Tricks For Styling Your Own

Of all the things I love about blogging (and there are a lot!), conceptualising and styling a photoshoot is my favourite.  

It’s the bit of my job I used to dream about doing when I was little. Albeit blogs didn’t even exist then – so it was more of a: “one day when I work at Vogue” situation!

Today I’m so excited to take you behind the scenes of pulling together a photoshoot for the blog! I’m sharing some of the most important elements I focus on to ensure a successful day . . .
