Earlier this week I was lucky enough to attend the prestigious award ceremony in London that is the Drapers Independents Awards 2014. Since starting my job at Visualsoft almost three years ago (how time flys!), I have always gotten excited seeing my clients get shortlisted for a Drapers award. Last year Little Mistress brought home the bacon by winning the award for Young Fashion Brand of the year. This year, another one of my fabulous clients was up for not one but THREE awards at the Drapers Indies and that was Collectif, a specialist in vintage reproduction who managed to take home the award for Niche Fashion Brand of the Year.

I love coming across new brands, especially ones from overseas because they offer something a little different compared to our usual British brands. One brand I have discovered recently is For Love and Lemons which is based in LA. I’ve been stalking them on Instagram for a while now but it was only recently that I decided to take the plunge and actually make a purchase. View Post


Sundays are made for eating, relaxing and sleeping away your hangover and last Sunday that’s exactly what happened. After a late night the evening before, me and my mum arranged to take a trip out for a traditional Sunday lunch at The Masham in Heartburn Village (if you haven’t been, I strongly recommend that you do – the beef melts in your mouth!). After our lovely midday lunch, we decided to take a spontaneous drive over to Yarm to have a little wander around the high street. Unfortunately most of the shops were closed, however we managed to have a good mooch around some lovely little charity shops. View Post

Spending most of my wages on the latest fashion lines from the highstreet has always been a regular thing for me so being on this spending ban has been really tough for me. Like most girls, I am obsessed with ASOS. I’m an ASOS Premier member so receiving unlimited free next day delivery,exclusive discounts and free returns on all of my favourite brands is pretty fantastic. Unfortunately this means resisting the temptation of ordering something tonight and having it delivered in the morning is unbearable! View Post

At the weekend I finally got to pay a visit to the cute little tea house named The Olde Young Tea House. After stalking their Instagram account for a couple of months and drooling over their daily bakes, I knew I had to get myself down there. Located in the heart of Middlesbrough town centre, me and my mum decided to take a visit to experience it for ourselves following their recent award win for the National Independent Shop of the Year.
