No matter how horrendous life might seem at times (I just broke my longest nail, for instance, and I’m pushing through a harrowing mourning period), there’s always something to be thankful for. It can be big or small; important or fleeting. Here’s a little list of what I’m thankful for. I have enough money to pop into Primark and pick up a pair of new pyjamas whenever the impulse strikes me (basically about once a fortnight – a gal’s gotta have Coca Cola pyjama leggings, right?) I have enough stability in my life to care for my ever-growing menagerie of…

If you’ve stumbled across this blog and thought, “who the heck writes this stuff?!”, then hi, hello, pleased to meet you – I’m Sally. I’m a busy bee, so this blog doesn’t always get the love and attention and premium themes it deserves. In my dreams it’s a glowy, beautiful space on the internet with dreamy OOTD shots and perfect flatlays.

For these boots. *insert angelic chorus sounds here* The lovely people at JD Williams sent me these stunning snake-print ankle boots, so I’ve styled them up for you (in my very inexpert ‘this looks good, right?’ way) and I’m loving the look! I paired the boots with some really casual ripped Topshop jeans (loving mom jeans for summer – you can hide your ice-cream food baby especially well in…

I flipping love Summer. It’s always warm, people are smiling, there’s ice cream vans on every corner and – Oh, wait, I live in Britain, so it’s cold, people frown at you and the only ice-cream vans you might see have run out of Mini Milks and are now only selling out-of-date cans of Coke. But that doesn’t mean we can’t start experimenting with our makeup! Gone are smoky brown eyes and burgundy lips (who am I kidding, I wear that year-round), and here to stay are bright colours, shimmer and glitter. Yay! So here are some of my favourite…
