HIGH RISE
SUMMER IN THE CITY

Credit where credit’s due guys, we are having one GREAT British summertime. Everyone’s just so happy! England are smashing it in the world cup (I’m aware that I’m posting this just before we take on Croatia in semi-finals but I have faith – IT’S COMING HOME!!) as well as football fever taking hold across the nation, my whatsapp groups are going crazy each night between the hours of 9pm-10pm #Loyal #DoBitsSociety yep – in case you’re not on board with the lingo, Love Island has offically got me hooked. I mean, I am SO in! I get fully involved each night and in all honesty, I’m more invested in the villa realtionships than I am my own love life. Which is non-existant at the mo FYI. Livid! In other news though, this gorgeous weather has meant my holiday wardrobe has been given a new lease of life and I am here for it. I featured this little stunner from Dorothy Perkins on my Instagram (@littlemisswinney) a few weeks back and wow – You guys bloody loved it! I got so many messages about it. I will say it’s been one of my summer staples this year. It’s super flattering, got…

ONCE UPON A TIME…
BELLE – BEAUTY AND …

Welcome everybody to the first installment of my new ‘Once upon a time’ series. I uploaded a sneak peek of this shoot over on my Instagram stories a couple of weeks back and got such a huge response from you all trying to guess who I was. Well the majority of you got it right and I’m so excited and happy to finally share the finished product with you… “With a dreamy, far-off look And her nose stuck in a book What a puzzle to the rest of us is Belle.” Disney’s Beauty and The Beast holds such a special place in my heart. It’s not only my mums favourite film but it was the first West End musical I ever saw in London. Even as a child, although I was petrified of the Beast (I used to have to hide when he steps out of the shadows at the beginning) I always loved Belle! Something about her character resonated with me, she was a bit quirky and different, not quite fitting in with the others around her and full of dreams to escape the small village she’d grown up in. So when originally having the idea for this series,…

DON’T LET ANYONE DULL YOUR SPARKLE

Hi gang, sorry for the (unintentional) break, I’d had enough of social media last week and so decided to have a mini detox. This also coincided with some seriously stunning weather here in the UK so I decided to skip a week of blogs and allow myself to simply enjoy it without worrying about followers, likes and analytics. Although we don’t get sunshine here that often, British summertime really does bring out the best in people and seeing every ones smiling faces made the last few days simply beautiful! So after a little break and some much needed TLC, I’m now rested and ready to get back to it, which brings to this post – these images are some of my favourites ever shot with the wonderful Zoe. Although on first glance they may look care free and graceful, getting there was quite the mission and had both Zoe and I in fits of tears and laughter. I’d love to have a film crew follow us one day when we’re shooting so you could see the real ‘behind the gram’ goings on because wow, the things we do to get a shot you wouldn’t believe! Anyhu, I wanted to write…

BEAST FROM THE EAST

Happy Sunday everybody! I hope you’re all swell and cuddled up under a duvet or in front of a fire somewhere. Now as you can probably guess, these pictures were not taken this week. I had planned to shoot some new content however with the ‘Beast from the East’ taking full hold and covering the UK with snow – it wasn’t happening! So instead we have these shots (which I love FYI) taken by the gorgeous Zoe Griffin a couple of months back when it was much warmer! Jacket – Zara, Top – H&M, Skirt c/o – Boden, Bag – Chanel Shoes c/o – ASOS, Glasses c/o – Glasses Direct Photography – Zoe Griffin A few posts back I asked what you guys would like to see more of on this blog and I can’t thank you enough for the replies I got on both the blog and over on my Instagram. The feedback helped me so much in knowing which direction to take my little corner of the Internet. The most mentioned thing that seemed to crop up in everyone’s responses was that you wanted more ‘day to day’ me. What I get up to and how my week…
