Lazy Oaf & Disney

Sunday, 20 November 2016


I love a disney collection as much as the next guy princess. Disney has had such an effect on so many people's lives for so so so many years that it's no surprise many brands have jumped on the bandwagon, releasing Disney collections. Of course, this is great for people like me. People who are far too old to be watching disney movies all day (only because we have work...) but not old enough to truly let go of our childhood. Lazy Oaf have answered our prayers and created a collection like no disney collection before.   

It's available both on asos and, both of which offer different products from the range. I love how they've managed to keep the collection fun and childish- it's not a subtle range of products, that's for sure, but that's why it's so great. Which are your favourite pieces from the collection?

How to take better blog photos

Sunday, 6 November 2016

1. Find your 'studio'

Most bloggers (especially those part-time) won't have the luxury of having a designated studio space for taking photographs. To be honest, I really don't feel it's necessary. As long as you have some sort of space you can set up a shoot, it will work. If I'm shooting indoors (flat-lays and product shots) I'll always pick a spot by a window. Natural lighting is an absolute god-send with photography, and if you're shooting indoors, you need to get as much light as possible into your shot. Shooting in front of a window also means you can control the type of light- if the sun is particularly bright that day and casting shadows on your set, close the blinds a little- you'll still have some light coming through but you can eliminate the harsh shadows.

A/W '16 at New Look

Saturday, 5 November 2016

Those who know me personally will know that I buy 896% of my clothes from New Look. It's always the first place I go if I'm in the mood for a spot of window/online shopping and I'll rarely come out empty handed. I must admit, my bank account doesn't have such a loving relationship with the store as I do, but the fact that they offer such good value completely overules this.
