British Fashion Awards 2014: My View As Sole Wheelchair Fashionista

2014-12-01 21.14.58

I was one of the lucky few to be in attendance at the 2014 British Fashion Awards this time last week.  It feels like only yesterday, but at the same time it has taken me to long to take it all in.  Glamour on glamour, fame on fame, layers and layers of everybodies favourite indulgences with a cherry on top.  It was truly heavenly.

We went […]

buelna-beach-asturias-spain

I love Christmas time in England.  We have so many traditions and so many things to look forward to.  That being said, there are times when I just crave the escape of planning a holiday I won’t take, a day I won’t have, and an outfit I could only dream of in the depths of winter.  Dreaming gives variety and escapism, and a good reason to spend hours window shopping online.
