As we're slap bang in the middle of festival season, I thought I'd supply you guys with some inspiration!  I based this outfit around my amazing silver CAT boots as they're the perfect festival boot and thought I'd bring in some colour with my holographic raincoat from Boohoo.  I'm off to Kendal Calling this weekend and this is one of my outfit options, especially as it's looking like it's going to rain!  Who will I see there?

If you subscribe to my YouTube channel, you'll know how totally obsessed I am with bell bottoms at the moment (my collection is getting a little ridiculous!!) so of course I had to get a pair when Missguided brought out their festival collection.  Shockingly, there's no black in the outfit at all, instead I opted for white & grey to match the flares - I love how it looks and this get-up would look gorge at a festival!  Speaking of which, I'll be at Kendal Calling next weekend - who will I see there?

A Makeover with Pipdig + GIVEAWAY


I've had my little corner of the internet running for 4 years now, and I'm always striving to improve my content and mix things up a little.  Since starting up, I've had the same blog design, and I couldn't help thinking that it's holding my blog back; sure the crystals were pretty cool back in 2011, but I wanted a fresh start with a cleaner feel.  I can code myself and I created my last layout from different templates, but when you're trying to run a blog it's so difficult to dedicate time to something that isn't 'urgent', which is why it's taken me over a year to implement this new layout (oops!).

Thanks to Pipdig, I managed to finally start on a fresh face for my blog.  Phil somehow managed to translate a scruffy drawing and some vague descriptions into a gorgeous, finalised template within days, and I loved it straight away!  I always got an immediate response, and any tweaks I wanted were done straight away - Phil seriously knows his stuff!

As you can see, I've gone for a very clean look, with minimal colours, to let each post speak for itself, and I've decluttered any ugly widgets.  The banner I actually made myself; I kept the crystals as a nod to the old theme, and tried to hint at my personality through it (for example, one of the things peeking out from behind is part of a Suicune!).  I also have a super snazzy mobile layout, which I keep having to look at, so pleased with it!

All in all, I think you'll be able to tell that I'm over the moon with my new design - let me know what you guys think in the comments!  If you're looking for a revamp, you can buy pre-made templates from just £29, for both Blogger and Wordpress and they're super easy to install yourself, or you can have a professional do it within 24 hours!  Phil also does custom & semi-custom designs if you're looking for something specific - just check out the website!
Goodbye old layout!
