Detox Your Wardrobe: The 5 Golden Rules

It's officially spring today (thought it may not feel like it) and we know what that means - spring cleaning your closet. By now we're all familiar with the typical 'Keep', 'Sell', 'Donate' and 'Throw' piles we make when having a clear out but I have a few extra tips that will help you to really detox and declutter your wardrobe once and for all. 


For me, cleaning out my closet isn't just about getting rid of the clothes that I never wear anymore, that's easy. It's about taking the time to take a step back and really assess how my current collection makes me feel and purging anything that I no longer love. That's the reason I encourage you to think of it as a wardrobe 'detox'. It's about getting rid of the items that may be having a negative impact on your life.

DIY Ombre Glitter Nails

I don't know about you but for me Sundays are a time to relax, unwind and reset for the week ahead and that includes a killer manicure. I haven't set foot inside a nail salon in years because I'd personally rather put the money aside to spend on a meal out, a few glasses of prosecco or a nice Zara top. Instead, I prefer to DIY which is so much easier than you may think!


Read on for a quick talk-through of how I do this ombre glitter look myself in five simple steps.

Dancefloor to Desk Reverse Styling

One of the most important aspects of dressing well on a budget is knowing how to work and rework pieces so that they can be subtly reintroduced to your social circle in a fresh way. 


In November I showed you how I'd style this beautiful lace overlay jumpsuit for an evening occasion. Now that the festive period is over and we're stepping into spring, I need to transition some of my evening wear into the day time so that I can get more bang for my buck. In this post I'm showing you how to do just that with a few simple styling swaps.

DIY Poke Bowl for Under £5

If, like me, you're a prize pinner then you'll have seen the plethora of pretty poke bowls popping up all over the place. Never one for a simple sandwich, I knew that this was my kinda grub, so I set about creating an easy and affordable DIY version to share. 


Read on for an easy peasy poke bowl recipe that'll leave your bank balance intact and your colleagues jade with envy (see what I did there? *insert obnoxious wink face emoji* no really, please read on).

DIY Gift Flower Box

It seems that the humble vase is no longer the number one way to present a beautiful bouquet. If our Instagram feeds are anything to go by, nowadays there is no superior way to present someone with their favourite florals than carefully arranged inside a fancy flower box. 


Sadly for us, hat box arrangements tend to cost around £100 from the high-end florists they hail from but - fear not! With Mother's Day just around the corner, I have a DIY version that costs less than your bog standard bunch from your local florist but looks like it actually costs a lot more. Here's how to DIY.

Beltin' It Out

Despite London Fashion Week being a bust, one thing I did really enjoy on the day (apart from the great company I was in) was my outfit. I wanted to wear something chic but still simple and most of all comfortable. I think I nailed it and a found a new super fast styling hack to boot.

The Superb Shirt Dress

There's something so beautiful about a great shirt. Pair it with a silk scarf and a pencil skirt and you have a preppy look that screams sophisticated style. Undo a few buttons, demi tuck the hem and slip on a leather skirt and you tell a whole different story. One of fun and frivolity.
