About Me


Hello and welcome! My name is Paula, I am a thirty-something Advertising Executive by day and a personal style blogger with an interest in photography the rest of the time. I live in the North East of England and have always had a huge interest in style, whether that be in fashion, films, architecture, art, music... pretty much everything that is visually stimulating. This is my place to document aspects of my life, my interests, my inspirations.

Advertising, Sponsorship & Gifted Items

If you have interest in any of the above, please email for more information.
Gifted items are accepted and illustrated with * in each post (new in July'13, so updating back posts is taking some time). However, I will only accept gifted items for review if they strongly fit in with both my and this blog's aesthetic - I am in no way writing this blog to receive gifted items. I do not believe in a bad review (and will not accept gifted items to do so). Therefore you may see gifted items written about only in a positive light but that is purely because they are items I myself would buy with my own money and those reviews are purely my own unbiased thoughts.
