I've written about being single on here before – in fact it's one of my most popular posts. Well, I can kind of see why – being single at 21 is kind of an intriguing topic.. especially when you throw in the fact that I've not had a boyfriend.. EVER.. or a first kiss. Anyway, just because I've not been in a physical relationship doesn't mean I've never fancied anyone or even been in love.

London Fashion Week spring/summer 2020 was an event.. as always. Full to the brim with delightful looks to please every fashionista. From Burberry's beautiful re-vamp to Molly Goddard's signature tulle accents and Rejina Pyo's preppy chic collection for spring 2020.


Rejina Pyo's ready-to-wear collection for spring 2020 was full to the brim with preppy prints, chic textures and a neutral colour palette (with just a pop of colour for transitioning into the summer). Clueless vibes are prominent with multiple looks – especially the yellow check two piece suit. The backdrop for the runway was a book shelf which really added to the overall collegiate feel of the collection.


Burberry's SS20 collection is different when compared to this time last year, when Christopher Bailey was in the driving seat. Riccardo Tisci's Burberry SS20 collection had a different vibe to past collections. Empty of Burberry's signature Nova Check and lacking of the whimsical boho feels from previous runways, this collection was different in every sense of the word. A cool colour palette was prominent as were the appearances of glittering embellishments – two things that Burberry and Bailey never really showcased throughout his reign. Whimsical has been replaced for modern while the recognisable serif Burberry logo has been replaced with their new(ish) sans serif font. The classic Burberry trench made a few appearances, each in a completely different way – one very classic and another embellished with crystals.


Tulle. Tulle. And more tulle. A beautiful collection from Molly Goddard for her SS20 collection. Ankle-length dresses and skirts, miles of tulle and an abundance of embellishments – this collection is truly breathtaking, whimsical, romantic and highly feminine too. The soft silhouettes of the outfits, the way the tulle flows and the way in which the accessories clash – all of this adds an edge to her collection. Blues and yellows were prominent throughout this collection (they seem to be hot colour trends for SS20).


Anya Hindmarch has been a favourite designer of mine since I jumped head first into the world of fashion back in 2014. Her 'Counter Culture' collection from when she was at the top of her game was and always be a firm favourite collection of mine. Although, could her 'Post Box Maze' top her 'Counter Culture' collection? Maybe. Taking mundane everyday items and turning them into couture, Anya has gone and done it again. As a lover of all things hand-written and tangible, when I discovered that Hindmarch's SS20 collection was based around 1) the colour red and 2) letter writing – I fell in love before I even set eyes on anything. Stunning bags shaped like envelopes and purses too, beautiful bespoke pieces that can have an address and special date embossed onto the leather, and a bag that resembles an actual postbox – could this collection be anymore dreamy?


House Of Holland's spring/summer 2020 showcase featured a whole host of bright pops of colour. Inspired by the 1970s, House Of Holland combined relaxed styles with more structured garments. From blazers to dungarees and sheer shirts to lounge suits – this collection is free, easy, relaxed and groovy.


Inspired by the Italian actress and activist Tina Modotti, Erdem's SS20 collection combined bold colours and modern styling with Victorian style gowns and garments. Modotti apparently dressed as a form of self expression during tough times before suddenly passing away in 1942. Showcased outside in a rather dreary environment, Erdem's collection lit up the location with the beautiful prints, colours and designs. 

The spring and summer of 2020 looks bright, bold and as striking as ever. Florals for spring may be groundbreaking, but they certainly don't look to be as groundbreaking in the spring of 2020. Pair blue with yellow, green with purple and crystals with a cool colour palette for the most impactful look in the spring of 2020.

What are your thoughts on some of the collections for spring/summer 2020? Are they up your street or do you pave your own catwalk? Let me know...

I've been writing songs since I can remember. Songs about love and life, songs about tiny details and songs that mean an awful lot to me. As much as I would love to record these songs, they're very unfinished. And as I'm not in the frame of mind that I was when I started each of these songs, I figured I would publish them here as poems.

I made pumpkin spice muffins. They're the best muffins I've ever made and they're the best muffins I've ever eaten. No exaggeration – try them for yourself and you will be in pumpkin heaven.

Editing photos can be damaging. Not only for others, but for ourselves too. Dark circles, wrinkles, crow's feet, cellulite, stretch marks, blemishes, blackheads – the list goes on and on – but all of the above is frowned upon in today's society. Why? I have no idea.

Jealously is something I absolutely hate. Jealously serves no purpose to our lives and only strips away the beauty, happiness and joyfulness that we experience on a day-to-day basis. I wanted to write this after watching a Netflix film that represented the facets of jealousy and how dramatically it changed the lives of the people in the film. I just want to sprinkle a little bit of positivity.

Every year on my birthday, I host a cute and kitsch tea party. Gorgeous decor, lots of tea, a splash of gin and mountains of sweet treats to delight my loved ones...

Happy September 1st, the first day of meteorological autumn! Okay, so the autumn equinox (also known as Mabon for my Wiccan friends) isn't until September 23rd, but I start decorating for autumn in August so you're lucky that this post is arriving as late as this! In August 2018 I created my Instagram page @theperksofautumn. I created an account dedicated to autumn because it has been my favourite season for as long as I can remember. My account has grown so much and I'm so lucky to have an entire community of autumn lovers.
