Cowboy Boots, I Love You

So, I have another dilemma. A fashion dilemma and a big one. It has to do with shoes and the fact that I want more than I can afford. I know what you’re thinking. Yes. This is a small dilemma. However, to me it is very important. Throughout my 20 years of life on this

Welcome back to the Depop chronicles. I believe this is my second piece regarding Depop? Although I love the resale app, I also get extremely frustrated with all of its glory. For those who are unaware, Depop is a trendy, hip, chic, teenybopper resale thrift-store app. Basically, anything you need, you can probably find on

This is going to be jaw-dropping. I know, but I can’t be sorry. Can someone please, pretty please, with sugar on top, explain the hype around high-top converse still?

I know, it’s sad. The post-Christmas retail therapy after being showered with gifts is not, by any means, a sound idea for the bank account. I’m not talking about spending the gift cards you got or making returns, I’m talking about being so sad the holidays are over that you hop online to push away

Recently, I have been growing an extremely hearty, yet expensive, affinity for trousers dated pre-2000s. What does this even mean? Excellent question. Whilst watching this man on the popular, vivacious and apparently controversial app, TikTok, I fell in love with trousers. This man makes videos to the same audio every time, showing off his stellar

Gather around, friends and foe … allow me to regale you all about the sewing machine venture of 2020. This is a tale of triumph, loss, fear, sadness and simplicity. It is a tragi-comedy and simultaneously a play of love in three acts. I suppose this is to warn you all before entering the mysterious
