Trying Amazon's Private Brand Clothing Range: Lark & Ro

Did you know that Amazon produces its own range of clothing? They have various fashion brands available to Prime members (not a Prime member? Sign up here) including a boho line (Ella Moon), a swimwear range (Coastal Blue) and an accessories range (The Fix).

Rose Gold Sparkle + Bulova Diamond Watch Giveaway

"The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ / Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit / Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line, / Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it." This verse from the Rubaiyat about time and destiny was one of my favourites when I was a poetry-obsessed teenager. So when I heard that Bulova had released a women's watch collection named the Rubaiyat - I knew I'd love it!

Wrapped Up in Blue + I've Been Buying ALL the Bags

I didn't used to understand wrap coats - why would you want a coat that doesn't button up the front? But after wearing this Lydia Wool-Blend coat from GUESS - it all makes sense!

This type of coat is perfect for errand days, when you're constantly switching between indoors and outdoors. When I step out of the car, I wrap the coat around me - and I'm immediately blanketed in warmth. And once I'm indoors - I just let the coat unwrap and fall open. I don't overheat - and I don't have to keep fastening and unfastening my coat - it's very handy!

Top Tips for Buying from Chinese Clothing Sites like Chicwish, Romwe and Shein

This is one of my most asked questions from readers and real-life friends. They see me wearing clothing from websites such as Chicwish, Shein, Romwe, Zaful and Rosegal - and want to know about ordering from these stores. They are often intimidated by the selection, worried about the long wait time or scared that they'll order one thing and receive something else!

I've put together my top 5 tips from ordering from these clothing sites, so that you'll be as happy with your clothes as I am!

How We Take Outfit Photos for the Blog (Equipment Information)

As mentioned in an earlier post - my husband and I work together to produce the photography for this blog. I take all of the product shots, and he takes most of my outfit shots (I set up and frame the photo, he takes the pictures). Creating appealing imagery is an important part of fashion blogging, so I'm always looking for ways to increase the quality of my pictures.

The Best Photography Gear for taking fashion blogger outfit photos

Having the right photography gear is essential for high quality shots, so in today's post, I'm sharing the exact photography equipment I use - along with a list of items I want to eventually upgrade to.
