The Five WOWs: Pom Pom Shorts & Other Stories

Pom Pom Shorts, Pom Pom Accessories

1. Earrings | PROPSFashion  //  2. Assorted Cushions | Love Frankie  //  3. Scarf | Hobbs
4. Necklace | Handmade By Neha Bajaj  //  5. Shorts | Ark Clothing

Ark Clothing asked me to share some of their awesome shorts with you folks and when I saw these adorable little pom pom shorts, I couldn’t resist building a little story around them. They are precious. Team them up with a white vest for any late-Summer vacationers and if you’re stuck in the UK for the rest of the year, grab those black opaque tights and stacked boots!

Don’t you just love handmade? These indie designers take a trend and work it up in the most creative ways possible. I’d love a statement necklace like this, so much classier than those chunky neon beaded ones that were so popular for a while!

The child-like scarf is my nod to the upcoming Winter – I am so excited to wear tights and boots and coats and scarves again. These giant pom poms hold memories of the Winter accessories I’d wear as a kid.

Health & Happiness: Laughter

LaughterImage Credit

We all have those moments (you know what I’m talking about!) when the bin bag splits or the dog shakes too soon and coats the hall in bath water – it’s so easy to feel like the whole world is against you, but next time try to see the funny side: Our Frank-Monster looks like such a doofus when he shakes!

One thing we could all do with a whole heap more of is laughter – seriously, it’s scientifically proven to improve your health.

For as long as I can remember, the TV show Friends has been my comfort blanket. I have watched that show so much I now laugh before the jokes. I always watch it when I’m home alone for the night – it covers up those creaky noises every empty house has and convinces me I’m not about to be attacked by a rogue axe-murderer. HAH.

Amongst our friendship group Friends has been a source for a lot of laughter – we have ‘Friends Scene It’ tournaments, ‘guess the line: Simpsons or Friends’ games and Boyfriend and I always say it has a quote for every occasion. We quote it a gazillion times a day!

Simplyhealth, who provided the above article on the health benefits of laughter, invited Boyfriend and I to watch Friends at the Everyman Cinema in Leeds. It was the perfect opportunity to spend what would have been a dull weekday evening, laughing at the early haircuts of the cast together. It was also lovely to finally meet Dannielle from Chicadeedee too, so thank you for that Simplyhealth! We were grinning from ear-to-ear all night!

It’s easier than you think to adopt laughter into your daily life:

1 // Laugh more – even at those niggling, annoying moments!
2 // Find a ‘go-to’ comfort blanket, like Friends DVDs, for when you’re sad or scared.
3 // Play games, even if they seem geeky to outsiders. You’re never too old!
4 // Accept invitations – a little change of scenery is perfect to inspire laughter.
5 // Have in-jokes and quote your favourite TV shows over text or social media.

Without laughter, life is all a “moo point”. Am I right?
“Like a cow’s opinion. It just doesn’t matter. It’s moo.” – Joey Tribbiani 

What makes you laugh? Loves x xx

Outfit Post: Black, White and Mustard


I’m totally going for comfort with my style these days – it’s great to make fashion so easy and reliable when you’re feeling pressures elsewhere. Feeling happy in yourself is a sure fire boost for your self-motivation. So at the moment I’m reaching for slouchy cardigans and loose dresses and I can’t wait for Autumn to roll round so I can layer up those adorable knitted tights and boots too!

Mustard Black and White

I’m so excited to be wearing a piece from Adventures and Tea Parties in an outfit post; Jo has become a very dear friend of mine and is definitely partially responsible for me not losing my mind on those days when I’m convinced I can’t make my business work. Her shop is full of beautifully handmade, fabric pieces and I chose this necklace because I really wanted to team up some black and white outfits with mustard accessories. I’ve worn the necklace with tonnes of variations of black, white and mustard and this just happens to be the first one we snapped!
