NINA NESBITT // RESCUE ROOMS 2018


Hey guys! Time for another video update, but this time I am trying out something a little different. I finished university on Monday and went to see Nina Nesbitt, with my best friend Chloe. I've kind of lost count of how many times we've been to see her now but every time it is amazing. 

I decided to have a little bit of fun with the editing of this weeks video. I really like the VHS style and I want to do more little vlogs in this edit. It was really fun to make (and film). 

Nina Nesbitt was supported by Georgie, who is also from Mansfield! Au/Ra also supported (see a sneak peak in the video below). I will link everyone's Spotify's so you can check them all out. 

Hope you enjoy the video and if you do please leave a like and subscribe to see more content from me.

A Trip to Liverpool & Outfit of the Day


Hey guys! So a few weeks ago I went on a little trip to Liverpool with my amazing boyfriend, Ryan, and I thought I would share some pics & an outfit of the day. 

This trip was a Christmas present and we got to stay in the wonderful Staybridge Apartments. I would highly recommend this as a lovely place to stay in Liverpool as the rooms are gorgeous and the location is perfect! 


I posted my outfit of the day on my Instagram and I thought I would share with you where it is all from. My Teddy coat (which I teased made me look like a sheep-bear) is from Urban Outfitters. My Jumper and Dress are both from Nasty Gal, which I featured in my latest haul video over on YouTube (feel free to give it a watch!) Then I just paired it with some basic black tights (it was freezing) and my vans. I think Doc Martin's would have looked better, however, I knew I would be walking around all day and my feet just can't take that pain. And finally, my backpack is from Asos - I literally take this everywhere with me and just throw all my stuff inside lol. 

I actually really enjoyed wearing this outfit as it was comfy but looked a bit more like I made effort opposed to my usual 'chuck on a baggy tee' vibe. 

To finish off my little post, I will share with you a few cute pics from my trip. I hope you enjoyed reading! If you didn't catch my latest post, I now have a YouTube channel, so if you could check it out and subscribe that would mean the world.

I have a YouTube Channel! Nasty Gal Clothing Haul


Hey guys! I apologise for the lack of posts, however, I am back and with some exciting news. I decided that I want to expand my little blog world to YouTube. My first video is up and ready & I will be adding more! I will always link new videos to blog posts, however, if you would 'like & subscribe' that would make me very happy. 

So my first video is something pretty chilled out, just so we can get into the swing of things. It's a Nasty Gal haul, so if you are interested in fashion I am sure you will enjoy it. 

I will always be keeping this blog up-to-date as a priority. Thank you for all your support over the last few years and it is your guy's encouragement that has made me decide to explore different avenues of blogging! 

You will be hearing from me very soon, but for now please check out my latest video!

What Does Feminism Mean To Me?


Hey guys! So, feminism is a widely talked about subject and I feel like I would like to address it. For anyone wondering, I class myself as a feminist. In order for me to explain why I think it is important to know exactly what 'Feminism' means. So I've gathered a few definitions of 'feminism'.

"The advocacy of women's rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes" - Oxford Dictionary

"The theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes" - Merriam Webster 

"The belief that women should be allowed the same rights, power, and opportunities as men and be treated in the same way" - Cambridge Dictionary  

So that should be enough for anyone to get the general gist of feminism. However, sometimes the meaning of the word gets confused and escalated to something it's not, so much so, some people feel uncomfortable calling themselves 'feminists' because they are unclear of the true meaning. There is a lot of negative stereotypes associated with being a 'feminist' and a common misunderstanding is that it means women think they are better than men. But feminism has never been about being better or superior. Feminism is about being considered as equal. 

Women have always struggled to be valued the same as men through history and 'feminism' is trying to change that. It means women and men should have equal opportunities, power and social equality. I really do not think this should be a lot to ask for! But surprisingly there is still inequality between sexes in today's society. Women are still being paid less than men or being valued less socially. Of course, there has been a lot of progress thanks to all the wonderful people, especially women, who have fought for our equality. But we still need to continue this mission to gain true equality worldwide. 

So, I am proud to call myself a Feminist. I believe that men and women should be equal. I would hate to be told I could not do something just because of my gender. Women can do whatever they want with their lives, whether that's being a stay at home mum or being a mechanic. Men should be free to do what they want, whether that's being a builder or being a makeup artist. We are our own people and we have our own thoughts and dreams. Our gender should never get in the way of these dreams. 

Nothing annoys me more than when someone expects something of me just because I am female. Yes, I am female but it does not mean that my main ambition in life is to have a family, cook for my husband or any of the other 'women's place' stereotypes. I love that some women love this and they should be able to make this decision for themselves. But for me, I want to be able to follow my ambitions and dreams that aren't necessarily in line with the traditional 'women's place' stereotypes, without so much criticism. I will make my life decisions based on my happiness and not what society perceives my happiness should be. Therefore, feminism is important to me. I want to be able to work hard and get paid the same as a man doing the same job. I don't want to be considered worth less than a man. I want society to consider women equal to men. I want to be able to have power and express my voice. I want equality. 

So I hope this post helped some of you understand better what feminism is and why it is important to me, as an ambitious woman in today's society. Let me know your thoughts on the topic!
