Amongst all its faults, sometimes Instagram throws up a real gem. I’m not sure how long I’d been Insta-stalking Emma Low, creator of Pot Yer Tits Away Luv — I was captivated by her handcrafted creations and trusty sidekick, Lady the cat. A few DMs later we spoke about all things boobs, business and beyond.


You can read the full interview on Bricks Magazine, trust me - it's a gudden.

Just when you’d got your head around Hygge, there’s a new wellness movement on the scene. I’ve seen the words “wabi-sabi” pop up in magazines, on Pinterest boards and on my Instagram feed over the last few months. There have been chic coffee table books published on the subject, and it’s even being hailed as the inspiration for the interior trends of the moment.

Sad facts: Consumer waste has increased more than tenfold over the 20th century—from 40 kilogrammes to 560 kilogrammes of waste per person per year. Rainforests are being cut down at a rate of 100 acres a minute, with an estimated 50,000 species inhabiting our tropical forests become extinct annually.


Every one of us can make a small change and have a positive impact. I've chosen the chicest products that are doing great things for our planet, for Byrdie. And it needed cost big bucks, prices range from £2 to £90. The feel-good factor is free.

On Who What Wear today, I'm making a case for "Mom shops"


I'm going to guess that these brands aren't rated as highly on your fashion radar--on a shopping trip, they are most likely the stores you simply “don’t look in.” I'm going to urge you to venture from a strict shopping path, as I think you'll be as surprised and delighted as I was at the fashion on offer:


Perhaps you wouldn’t buy every single item from the following stores, but isn’t that true of any brand? What is guaranteed is that you’re missing out on a whole host of delights by omitting them. I often find the below brands offer superior fit and comfort. The focus is on well-cut silhouettes and quality of fabric as much as it is on trends.


The way we shop is changing, with supermarket clothing brands upping their style credentials to compete with high-street retailers. In fact, they contribute £3.1 billion to annual UK clothing sales and as I'm about to show you, can add a trendy update to your wardrobe without you spending big. Similarly, 'catologue' brands Boden and La Redoute are shedding their yummy-mummy image and are fast becoming fashion blogger favourites.

There's something so relaxing about burning a candle. Whether you're chilling out watching some feel-good TV or reading in the bath, the flicker of a flame and a beautiful scent can instantly lift your mood. Sure, you could buy a candle in the shops, but creating you very own personalised version is even better.


Making something yourself is so satisfying, plus you can customise everything from the jar and scent to the label. Even better, they make a super-thoughtful gift for a friend or a lovely pick-me-up from you to, well, you. This version can be made for under £10, so at this time of year when money is tight and the weather is rubbish, why not give it a try?


Head over to Byrdie.co.uk to find out how it's made (in just 10 easy steps).

I teamed up with the lovely Charlotte Jacklin of Betty Magazine to show you how to embellish a collar for S/S 18.


We were pretty taken with Gucci’s shining catwalk offerings this season, with embellished coats, collars and cuffs. The 70s vibe reined on, with exaggerated pointed collars added to tops, dresses and shirts. Now, for less than a fiver you can create your own statement piece, the best bit? It takes less than 20 minutes.
