Tell us about your style?

Oh, that’s a tricky one… it's definitely changed a lot over the years. I'd say my style really depends on my mood, how I'm feeling and what I'm up to on that particular day, so it changes often.

 

What are your fave pieces right now?

I'd have to say my black polo neck jumper, black skinny jeans and oversized jumper.

You look amazing – what’s your skincare routine?

I have super-dry skin, so need to take extra care of it – basically, moisturiser and lip balm are key for me.

 

What items do you always carry in your make-up bag?

I could literally talk about this for ages – it's so full! I'd have to say my lip pencil and lip balm are the two things that I'm the most obsessed with.

You've got so many followers! How does it feel?

Well it didn't happen overnight. At the beginning it wasn't my dream at all to end up being a big, successful blogger, but now I really love it!

 

What’s your favourite trend this season?

Weirdly, I'm actually really happy that oversized coats are back – I've been missing them so much.

Any plans for party season?

Hmm, it’s a funny one this year… I always plan so many parties and sort gifts and everything, that when it finally comes around, I'm so exhausted. I don’t have the time to put in as much effort as I originally wanted to.


What style advice would you give for any NYE parties this year?

I think anything goes, really. You can go classy with something glamorous like a maxi dress – or choose sequins or a cool trouser suit. If you're hosting the party, I'd recommend doing a themed one. It will make life easier for both you and your guests!
