So.. This Is Adulthood?

So apparently I'm now 21. From what I've heard, adulthood begins now.


Budgeting At The Most Expensive Time of Year

Christmas. Carols, cookies, cards, candy canes.
You know that other 'c' word that usually comes to mind? Cash.


Call Me M.I.A

I've been M.I.A that long I may as well change my name to Mia.


The Ultimate Holiday Check List

Summer is FINALLY here (well, this British weather currently says otherwise) and that can only mean one thing... Holidays!! This weekend I fly off to the beautiful Canary Islands and so whilst I've been planning what to take away with me I thought I would share with you a guys a list of my ultimate summer holiday travel essentials. 


The Reality Of Being A Fashion Marketing Student

For those of you that don't already know, I have just completed the end of my second year as a fashion marketing student. As a bit of background on me, to begin with fashion was never actually the job I originally saw myself in. Growing up I always wanted to be an actress. Long story short, it's a very competitive and very expensive industry and I certainly didn't have the talent for that. One thing I always enjoyed however, was writing. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I'm some gifted writer; far from it. But as far as my 'talents' go, writing is something I've always felt somewhat 'good' at. Anyone that ever read a piece of my work would always tell me they could tell it was written by me, that my work always had that trademark 'Toni stamp' to it.

The Importance Of Investing Time For Yourself

Happy Bank Holiday weekend! How are you spending your extra day off from the working week? Bank Holiday's are always the perfect time to treat ourselves with some much needed 'me time' as a reward for all of our hard work. 


British 'Summertime' Blues

What happened to the sunshine?! This past week in Manchester the weather has been 95% gloomy af with frequent rain showers making it difficult to find the opportunity to shoot some snazzy outfit shots for what is meant to be the 'summer'. Oh how I love British weather. Thankfully the weather Gods spared us from the rain this Sunday meaning I could share with you all this cute little blue number I'm currently loving. Featuring my newest pair of shoes from Zara... how beautiful are they?! 



My oh my, has it been a looooooong time since I last sat down at my computer and wrote a blog post. 2017 has so far been one of the most hectic years of my life. With university, a job and more recently moving house - This year has been mental to say the least. Blogging has had to take a back seat in my life for quite some time now but as I've now officially finished my university studies for the summer I FINALLY have some free time to kickstart my blog again and I couldn't be happier.




10 Everyday Reasons To Smile

Loooooong time, no blog! I cannot believe that this is my first official post of 2017!

I've kickstarted myself back to the gym and I've even gave my wardrobe a much needed clear out. I just made a Depop account where I will be sharing some stuff for sale, if you're interested in grabbing yourself some bargains you can check my shop out here.
