Travel | A weekend in Munich

Hi guys,

I am back from an amazing trip to Munich this bank holiday and wanted to share with you some of my snaps from over the weekend and some handy tips if you are thinking of visiting Munich.

I went with my boyfriend to visit my brother, who lives there. It is such a beautiful city and I loved exploring its many historic buildings, gorgeous parks and tasting traditional German food. It’s safe to say I came back to England with very sore legs from non stop walking all weekend.

Travel | Tips on packing for a European city break

 Hi guys, I am jetting off to Munich, Germany this bank holiday to visit my brother who lives there and am super excited. 

Having been a couple of times before, once by myself and again with my mum and dad, I can honestly say it is one of my absolute favourite cities to visit. This time I am excited to be going with my boyfriend Tom, who has never visited this beautiful city before. I can’t wait to show him all the cool beer gardens, amazing views and historical architecture Munich has to offer.

I have been super keen and already started packing. I need to make sure what I pack is minimal but will last all weekend. Seeing as I can only take hand luggage on the plane I need to be organised or I’ll end up packing things I really don’t need. So I thought I’d share with you some tips on packing for a short trip to Europe and how I would style up outfits when faced with limited baggage allowance.

Day dresses and playsuits are the easiest to pack and style as they are lightweight, cool and can easily be worn with or without tights depending on the weather. They are also great to wear at night if you haven’t got time to nip back to hotel and change. I am packing a few in various prints and materials, this mulberry tartan skater dress is one I made myself at the beginning of the year from a really simple sewing pattern. It’s great as the material is durable but lightweight so can be worn all year round. 

As well as day dresses packing a variety of tops that go with bottoms is a good idea especially if you are going for a few days like myself, then you have a variety to choose from. I am taking one jersey maxi skirt that can be worn day or night and three tops that can be mixed and matched depending on the temperature and time of day.

My denim jacket is perfect for this kind of trip. As it is late summer and Munich is generally warmer than Britain, I think this lightweight but stylish Topshop one is great..

Lifestyle | An evening at... Coffee & Clay Skipton

A couple of weeks ago I visited Coffee and Clay in Skipton to celebrate my good friend Chloe’s 22nd birthday. 
Coffee & Clay is a small café, on the main cobbled high street in Skipton, where you can sip tea and munch cake along side painting some cute pottery of your choice, which you can take away and keep. Amazing!

They also provide great party packages in the evenings… read on to find out more about my visit and see what I thought of Coffee and Clay!

DIY | Tribal Tassel Necklace | Tutorial

DIY Tribal Tassel Necklace

August is here which means one thing… Festivals! 
I love going to festivals, not just for the amazing music, atmosphere and people but the chance to wear outfits that are little bit quirkier, fun and boho inspired than everyday wear. For me no festival outfit is complete without a statement necklace, and if its handmade… even better! 

So I decided to give an old necklace I don’t wear anymore an injection of tribal style by adding coloured threads and created tassels, making it the perfect accessory to create cool boho vibes at my next festival.

Here’s how I did it…
