Hiya pickles! I bought this vest top from New Look around a month ago, and by luck it's still in stock so I would snap one up if you like the look of it - it's only £7! I absolutely love blush pink at the moment.

Hey loves! It's been a while again, hasn't it? James kindly passed on his man flu to me, and as I have asthma that means instant chest infection. Yay, lucky me! ;) In today's post I'm going to talk about how I hacked this long lagenlook dress from a three-quarter length playsuit.

Anyway, here's a really simple casual outfit I wore on a blisteringly hot day last month. A few of the items I've had for months, but thankfully as they're basics they're still for sale.

The other evening I sat down to capture why I feel so out of sorts with blogging, and in my usual bulldozer-in-a-meringue-factory style I ranted impulsively without any thought to who would read my words and relate to them as if I wrote it especially for them. This isn't a complete about-turn for those hoping for one. This post won't placate people who disagree that there are some fake aspects to blogging, or those who think purely fashion-related blogging as controlled by brands is better than the radical fatness/political days of old. I stand by the message, but not necessarily the delivery of it. There are kind ways of getting any message across, and my words were hasty, not kind.
What I really want to apologise for are the people who messaged me directly to say my scattergun accusatory tone had found a home in them. Hearing that my words had made anything they were already going through worse made me feel like shit, and quite rightly so. I deserve to feel shitty about that. When I sit and tap out posts in the small hours I have no idea how far my words travel, and little imagination of how they'll be taken by the tender souls of fellow creatives. It's been an important reminder that the pen is mightier than the sword, especially when wielded by someone in a shitty mood. To those people (and you know who you are), you didn't deserve that.

There are a million other things I could and should be writing about now, like my shiny new flat or the fact that because I've been so stressed I've had an upset tum for a week and all my knickers keep falling down. But no, I have other things on my mind right now.

How to declutter in an eco friendly wayAlthough our upcoming house move has been quite short notice, I was determined that I would donate and recycle as many of our unwanted belongings as I possibly could. Here are some of the things I've done to pass on our surplus goods. I'm not writing this post to paint myself as some kind of saint, but to give you some ideas about how you can clear out your clutter AND perhaps do some good with it. In the past when we've moved we've been quite wasteful, but this time round I've spent a lot of time and money making sure we throw away the bare minimum.
