Simple Days

I like to say my style is very simple. I adore fashion, and I truly believe it’s a way to express yourself, but I also like to dress to suit my surroundings and personality. I’m a Yorkshire girl at heart,…

All About That Backpack

Happy last day of November! I’m making it a thing, it’ll catch on. It’s so unbelievably cold right now. Actually, it is believably cold because it’s winter, but I feel like it’s an English think to talk about how the…
