Outfit Post: Lusty Layers (+WIN a £500 UK Adventure)


It’s been a pretty boring year travel wise, which is totally fine as I’ve been working hard and making a lot of changes so next year will be awesome, but I have itchy feet to go on an adventure. The folks at Uniqlo asked me what I would do if I had £500 to spend on an adventure in the UK and it’s a great question – there’s so much mischief to get up to without having to hop on a plane. That’s not all, though, Uniqlo have also invited you all to share what you’d do with the same £500 and the best idea will win their dream UK adventure (+ £100 to spend at Uniqlo)! Watch for entry details at the bottom of this post.

Recently my best friend moved down to Cornwall and it’s a whole world of adventure down there that I never knew existed. When I visited her last year she took me to this gorgeous private beach, Lusty Glaze, set into a cove with a cosy restaurant and bar, roaring fire and homely touches. If that’s not cool enough for you, Lusty Glaze also put on weddings, events and live music and the latter is where my dream UK adventure lies. If I had £500 to spend I’d arrange a music event at Lusty Glaze, put on my friend’s bands, grab a cosy blanket and lay on the beach under the stars.


I’ve been to endless music festivals in fields, but never on the beach! To keep in the festival spirit I’d want my outfit to have a huge chunk of Boho style; floral tights, wooden accessories and cute dresses with some broderie anglaise thrown in. With the UK weather being such a charming unpredictability I’d also need a pair of boots or wellies with layers and a cosy jacket for when the sun goes down. Uniqlo’s new Ultra Light Down collection is ideal, lightweight and soft and also packs into a little pouch for travelling. I don’t usually like this type of outerwear as a fashion girl, but the cut of their Parka is surprisingly flattering!

Wheelbirks Parlour: Ice Cream in Autumn

Wheelbirks Ice Cream Parlour

A couple of weeks ago I ventured up to Northumberland to hang out with my besties. We had a few drinks, nice meals out & went to a gig. It was also “a random day in October that we declared my birthday”, so I got gifts! I don’t see these girls very often so we have to take what we can get ;) We spent one day exploring the kooky shops in Hexham and Corbridge whilst getting rained on, so naturally we decided to stop at Wheelbirks Parlour for an Autumn treat!

The Parlour is on an actual, working farm (complete with smells!!) so we felt a little intrusive as we were driving up, but I promise you it’s there in the depths of the farm. The actual cafe itself is huge, but it looks like a little shed from the outside. They sell a couple of gifts, offer food and hot drinks as well an extensive ice cream flavour selection: Fudge & Pannacotta, Bubblegum & Popping Candy! Yes please!!

Admittedly it was a weird choice to go for ice cream, but it’s so cosy inside! A definite win!

Indie Biz: Official Supporter Of Movember

Movember Moustache Jewellery

After donating to Movember in a number of small ways in the past I am so, so excited to be an official supporter of the charity this year. You can now buy any moustache products from my official store or my Etsy store and 25% of the sale will be donated to Movember UK. Not only that, but you can then wear your moustaches during November to help our fellow Mo Bros raise awareness for the cause.

Mo Sistas, you have no excuses not to get involved! Don’t forget to tell people why you’re wearing your Mo, where you got it from and how they can take part too!

I feel like I’ve announced this a million times with Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and adding some information to all my new and existing product listings, but I’m still not bored of it! I’m so proud to be supporting Movember UK in an official capacity with my business, chatting with Movember about how we could work together to benefit the charity and ultimately them being happy to endorse me as an official supporter. It’s just like a great big hug! Thanks Movember, I hope I can do you proud.

Movember Moustache Jewellery

I’ve designed some brand new moustaches that you won’t be able to get anywhere else including a super fun sugar skull inspired tash! I wanted to give you a reason to fall back in love with moustaches and add to your collections instead of pushing out the same designs year after year.

It’s really got me excited to work with charities more in the future and design whole collections exclusively for them. Every time I take a step forward I come across a million more doors I could open, I just adore my job so so much. If you’re a charity and you’re interested in working together, do pop me an email. I’d be delighted to hear from you.

Now go forth and spread the word about Movember & Onetenzeroseven, let’s work together to change the face of men’s health! I’d love it if you could share this project on your blogs and social media. Let me know if you do and I’ll be sure to share each and every one! Thank you!
