10 Bloggers You Should Really Check Out In 2017

A new year means new things. Or that's what we're all lead to believe. So to run with the trend and to kick things off right in 2017, I've compiled a list of my fave bloggers you really really should, if you don't do anything else ''new'' check out in 2017. If the below beauties aren't already on your list of fave blogger babes, then where may I ask have you been?


First up, flamed hair vixen Aofie, as well as having a killa blog, killa style and a monochrome wardrobe of dreams, this babes the loveliest thing through and through with a heart made of fucking gold. 


Of course, I had to include Vix, she has that kind of wit that makes me do an ugly laugh when I'm reading her latest post. She has a no bullshit approach to any topic that she is discussing, girls all about the real talk that makes her so damned relatable. Such a queen. P.S have you seen this bloody photo of her, heart eyes forever.


Scottish lovely, living it up in London. Emma's blog is a mixture of travel, lifestyle and her personal fashion style that I'm such a bloody fan of. She has this grunge, rock and roll edge to fashion that I just love. As well as her blog, she also runs a YouTube channel with vlogs, makeup tutorials and look books. She is the main reason I wanted to really start using my Youtube channel. I also had the absolute pleasure of meeting her at LondonEdge earlier in the year. 


Fii's blog is one of the first blogs I started reading regularly. I love her mixture of honest reviews, the cutest OOTD post's, informative posts on the latest topics and her passion for anything South Korean. She is a little ray of positive sunshine in the blogging world and super supportive! I just really love anything this girl writes. 


After a recent move to London, Lucy has been including alongside her wicked fashion and beauty posts, her best bits of London and the lifestyle that comes with it. Lucy has an eye for sportsluxe and can make something as simple as a pair of joggers into a banging outfit. I can't wait to hang out with this little beauty at LondonEdge in Feb! 


 After only starting her blog back in June Kim has been absolutely smashing the blogging game with her makeup looks and grungey AF outfit post. I love love love seeing how she styles her wardrobe or latest buys. She's such a lovely gal to chat to and shows no end of support to other bloggers. Fellow Yorkshire lass waheyyyy ;)! 


Ok, it's not even funny how much I fangirl over Alice and her blog. Her outfit posts are out of this friggin' world and she is a no end of inspiration source for me. Her blog posts just go from strength to strength and the content she produces in second to none, she has a quirky sense of style and does everything her way. 


 Sarah recently started a new blog very aptly named ''This Side of me'' where she explores the realms of sex, dating and general lifestyle all with a twist of Sarah. One f my old time favourite posts is Sarah's Body Confidence: Disabled and Sexy [which you should all go totally check out] She's also one of my blogging besties and I can't wait to spend more time with her in the new year.


Tara is a fucking hero. She is such an important voice within the blogging world and fights daily to break stigmas around important subjects. To quote Tara herself:  ''A feminist lifestyle blog dedicated to questioning the norm and exploring subjects that are often seen as ‘taboo’. Similar to the women’s mags you can buy off the shelf but, you know, actually helpful.''  She's a breath of bloody fresh air and I've loved watching her go from one incredible thing to another in 2016. 




Kim is one of my original blogging friends. I love her sense of style, her attitude and how God damned sassy she is. All of this is channelled through her blog. I love the mixture of her lifstyle and beauty posts, plus a few OOTD's thrown in for good measure.

How To Dress For The Winter When You Don’t Know How To Dress For The Winter

Alternative Blogger

Ok, lol, that was a lie. I have no idea how to dress for the winter. Well, I do, It usually consists of all the layers, A new pair of winter boots and a coat that closely resembles a duvet hug as possible. What I don't know how to do is dress interestingly or blog-worthy in the winter.

So I pose the question:

How does one dress interestingly for the winter?

No really. I don't know about you but when the weather is so bloody GRIM out there and all you want to do is make a warm and cosy bed nest with all the snacks thinking up an outfit that is practical and not boring is kinda hard for me. Creativity is at an all time low for me this year and I really struggle to get my butt into gear. I get a serious case of ''BUT I DON'T WANNAAAA''. 

I was recently offered the chance of being in The Blogging Grotto Magazine [and guys if you haven't already pick yo self up a copy whywhywhy?] knowing the theme was winter I started to panic as I didn't want to produce some half arsed crap for the debut of Jess' magazine. I started to try and think up some incred outfit and after a while of coming up with diddly squat I realised, hang on a second, why force something I really ain't feelin'. Instead the day James and I decided to shoot the images for the mag, I opened my wardrobe and pulled out the first things I wanted to wear, and you know what the result wasn't that bad. 

Ok, I've got a cropped jumper on [srsly, when the heck is an appropriate time to wear a cropped friggin' jumper?!] a stripped long sleeve tucked into my Topshop pants that resemble jodhpurs [lol] and make me look really really tubs around the middle [not a fan] my ridic oversized lumberjack coat I got from Japan last year and my ''Be Nice'' beanie you're all probs sick of seeing but I ain't sick of wearing. It doesn't exactly scream outfit inspo of the year but it ain't so bad. 

Can we all just please take a moment to appreciate my boy's handy work with these pictures, for someone that's not really into photography he's been doing such a sterling job recently. And oh man the colours of that day were just so beautiful. I haven't edited this pictures in the slightest. Hashtag no filter.

Tis The Season To Be Creepy

Iron Fist Christmas Girly Sweater
Ok, I'm just going to jump right in and put it out there, this is possibly my favorite outfit combination for a very long time. Reasons why I reached this conclusion as follows:

1) I feel like it has all the Japanese school girl vibes and I can totally pretend I'm in Harajuku eating fancy crepes and not in dull old Howden 5,822 miles away. [Totally googled that].

2) Because I'm such a Bah humbug bitch and I'm not really sure how to embrace that festive cheer, this ''festive'' themed jumper is kinda right up my street. So yano, I'm in keeping with the season but with all the edges.

3) I love me some skulls, so much so I actually have a matching pair tattooed on my feet. [Heart eyes and everything]. No judgment, I was a young and impressionable 18-year-old and basically, I can't hack the pain of getting them covered up. Avril Lavigne eat your heart out.

This gorgeous little knit landed on my doorstep as a complete surprise from the babes over at Iron Fist. James was poised and ready to have the ''Jess do you really need to buy any more clothes'' convo with me lol. I actually made a squealing that alarmed my cat so much so she went running under the Christmas tree for cover. Festive.

It was James' ingenious idea to add the red bow from one of my cosplays, which adds a splash of colour that I'm always caring and basically finishes it off beautifully. 10 points to you JimJam.

So question time ladz, are you sick of seeing these boots yet? Cos I ain't sick of wearing them #sorrynotsorry I believe River Island are the queens of all things boots and each season they bring out some crackers. [lol crackers, sorry I tried. . . . ] but srsly they are wicked awesome and until summer rolls around yo9u'll be seeing a lot more of them.

In conclusion, if you haven't already guessed,  I'm loving Iron Fist this season WBU? Are there any bits from the collection you would love to have in your wardrobe? I'd love to know in the comments below! Peace, Love and all the edges <3 [Who frick am I?]

All Thangz Alternative With Blue Banana: Part One


Banned Kitty Jumper Blue Banana

Ok, I'm pretty sure we all know I'm all about the alternative thang. something I developed in my teens. I have a penchant for fun fashion and I'm not afraid to try something a little different, I by no means play fashion ''safe'' [A fringe that's a CM anyone?] One of my favorite old haunts, where I'd get most of my ''alternative'' get up would be Blue Banana so when an email dropped into my inbox last week from my Emo Baes I got all giddy and had to compose myself before replying in a calm and collective way. 

Rewind to the beginning of the week where I received goodies from the baes themselves that I can't wait to show you through the week. First up this creepy cute satanic kitty jumper. Very much echoing my kitty when she has run out of dreamies. As it is practically Christmas I thought I'd crack out my forever fave tartan trousers that you have seen on this lil blog O' mine as they're all festive and shit right? My blogger pal Lauren said they looked liked Santa pants and it was basically the best compliment I have ever received regarding an item of clothing I was wearing. 

 One of the main reason I loved shopping with Blue Banana was the vast amount brands they would carry, leading me to discover a new fave essentially every week. This jumper is by Banned, they seem to cater for the vintage lovers out there with a vast amount of 50's themed pieces and a few alternative fun bits throw in for good measure. I freaking adore everything about this kitty knit, especailly the huge creepy cat across the back with crescent moons, [love me a crescent moon] and the fact that it's so versatile, meaning I can dress it up or down is pretty great too! You can get your lil mitts on this very jumper I'm wearing using the following Link. YEY 4 JUMPER TWINZ!
