Trends AW17 | Battle Of The Boots: Designer Vs. High Street

Silver Lace Up Isidro Boots Aldo ShoesAs soon as Autumn starts, my focus shifts to footwear - boots, in particular.  So, now that the season is well underway and winter is creeping up on us, it's the perfect opportunity to pay some attention to the current footwear trends, as well as how much we're wiling to invest this time around.  Whether we splurge or save usually depends on how much wear and tear we reckon the boots will get, right?  Are they durable?  How often will you wear them?  How soon will this trend pass?  I've narrowed it down to five standout footwear trends this A/W that are appearing on both ends of the scale: designer and high street.  The question is, which gets your vote?

The Art Of A Gentle Morning | Bonsoir Of London

Bonsoir of London Blue Paisley GownSomething I adore about this time of year, is how everyone's attention turns to comfort.  It's all about how best to keep warm, stay cosy and achieve a general sense of wellbeing.  I'll be the first to admit I get ahead of myself with the seasons, which lately has resulted in curling up on the sofa watching Christmas films (oops), surrounded by candles.  But the question is, how can we embrace this season? Using the weekend as an example - it both starts and ends at home.  Things tend to quieten down on the social front between now and the festive season, providing the perfect excuse to indulge in a very, very gentle weekend...

Things To Do In Cambridge | Luxurious Stay At The Tamburlaine Hotel

Cambridge Romantic The River CamHaving never visited Cambridge before, I was really looking forward to checking out the city for the first time!  With a couple of days to play with, a stay at The Tamburlaine Hotel was on the cards - a hotel high on my travel wishlist, having seen it described as the most 'Instagrammable' hotel in the area - as well as plenty of architecture (and food!) to take in.  I had prepared myself for plenty of idyllic spots and cosy corners, but I hadn't anticipated the sense of sanctuary and luxury that comes with a cold-weather visit to the university city...

5 Reasons To Join A Gym | Seafolly At Cocobay

Seafolly Mandala Printed Black Long LeggingsAlright, so I'm still obsessed with working out.  Nothing new there!  However, after having recently convinced a friend to join a gym and then hearing about how much she's loving it, I'm feeling a little more pushy than usual (sorry).  With the gym at The Tamburlaine Hotel setting the scene, accompanied by one of my all-time favourite activewear looks via Cocobay, I've put together a few reasons as to why joining a gym might just be the best thing you can do for yourself this year...

The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge | Architectural Focus

Mosaic Tile Flooring at The Fitzwilliam MuseumThis week has been far less exciting than last week, which isn't all that surprising considering I started the month of October in Cambridge!  With a couple of days set aside for exploring, plans were set to ensure I soaked up the most architectural beauty as possible. Mission accomplished.  Considering Cambridge is very much a university city, you can anticipate a ton of college buildings, alongside various famous chapels.  Just ten minutes in the area will give you an idea of what it would be like to live there.  Honestly?  It's not somewhere I'd want to live, but that's not to say it doesn't make for a fabulous city break - particularly with so much beauty around every corner!  Speaking of which, The Fitzwilliam Museum was one of my favourite finds...

The Importance Of Discovering Your Aesthetic | Ft. The Tamburlaine Garden Room

The Tamburlaine Garden Room CambridgeRewind a few years ago and I literally had no idea where I most liked to be.  By this, I'm talking about environments, interior design and general aesthetic.  Somewhere along the line, I became interested with glasshouses and to cut a long story short, I'm now obsessed with them.  And now, anything that resembles influences of that fresh, clean and minimal vibe ticks all the right boxes for me!  Even better if they're closely followed by luxurious, classic and historic settings (the two can co-exist, promise!).  The thing is, before I knew it I found those same influences applying to my fashion, interior design, experiences and even preferred hotels when travelling.  So, that's pretty much what led me to The Tamburlaine Hotel in Cambridge earlier this week.  But the question is, why is discovering your individual aesthetic so important?

Parisian Chic | Why You Should Wear A Beret This Season

Double Breasted Camel Waistcoat Dress WomenWell, the title of this post says it all really!  A turn of phrase that pops up time and time again in fashion is Parisian Chic - that elusive, highly coveted vibe we're all wanting to emit through our outfits.  Sadly, it's much harder to achieve than a young Brigitte Bardot would have us believe.  Dammit.  Although, this season it's just that little bit more attainable thanks to a surge of interest in berets.  Any colour, any style.  Unlike Baker Boy hats that demand a dark shade and utilitarian feel, berets aren't asking for much.  They just want to look super chic!  Oh, and to also hide your bad hair days...
