Travel | Munich Photo Diary and Tips for What to See and Do

 Earlier this month I was lucky enough to travel back to one of my favourite European cities, Munich. It was completely different to my last visit a few years ago, mainly because it was more of a family visit this time but also what we did. Munich is such a varied city, you can go over and over again and do something different each time.

Lifestyle | Breakfast at Billy Bob's Ice Cream Parlor

 If you can't have ice cream for breakfast on your birthday, when can you eh? 

So I turned 26 a few weeks ago and to celebrate never growing up I took the day off work to eat ice cream and open presents. I had wanted to check Billy Bob's out for a while but heard it was super busy at weekends so a mid week visit on my birthday was the perfect excuse. Billy Bob's Parlor is a 50's style diner on a large farm in the beautiful countryside of North Yorkshire.

DIY | Metallic Painted Pumpkins for Halloween | Tutorial

 With October flying by already, I thought it was about time I got my Halloween DIY on! 
I have been pinning, searching and Instagram-stalking decorated pumpkins around this time each year but never got the chance to give it a go myself. With buying my own house I feel I can go all out Halloween crazy this year, starting with these super easy DIY pumpkin decorations. Metallic has been everywhere from interiors to fashion this year and is one of my favourite trends, so I thought it only fitting to add a little shine to these seasonal fruits with some bronze and copper. Read on to found out how I made my DIY metallic decorated pumpkins.

Lifestyle | Updating An Old Wardrobe Favourite for Winter

Although I love shopping and buying new items for the coming seasons, I also hate letting go of things I really love. Once in a while I find myself getting emotionally attached to items in my wardrobe that, although a little worn, are still my favourites. My Olivia Burton watch is one of those items. I have had it for a couple of years now, after treating myself to it with my very first wage. I noticed a few weeks ago that my watch had been lovingly worn so many times that the strap was becoming discoloured. Instead of going out to buy another watch altogether, I decided to reorder a new strap to bring a lease of life to this little chap.

DIY | Glitter Star Boot Tutorial | How To

 To me, October means getting out the cosy scarves, oversized jumpers and winter boots ready for the cooler weather. I cleared out my summer clothes last week and made room in my wardrobe for my winter outfits, among the old favourites I get out every year were my favourite Topshop boots. They are super versatile and have seen me through a couple of winters, but I noticed they were looking a little tired this year. I decided to jazz them up for this coming season and jump on board the 70's trend by doing a little DIY on them. 

 Here's how I revamped my old black boots into glitter embellished 70's style boots.

Lifestyle | Inside Papergang Subscription box

Last week, I got an early birthday present when this months box of goodies from Papergang popped through my letterbox. I thought it would be nice to show you inside this one as it has been a while since I posted about my very first box. As usual the outer packaging is just as fun and colourful as the contents and I couldn't wait to see what was inside the dreamy ombre wrapping.
