In the wake of messers Turner and Kane dropping a new release named 'Bad Habits', I thought why not compile a list of my own?

- I am twenty four and I still bite my nails. I know, okay? I KNOW.
- There is a rather large pile of black boots by the front door which look suspiciously similar but which are definitely not exactly the same (eyeing up another pair now).
- Texts don't need to be replied to immediately, do they? I honestly do try, but when whatsapp's crashed on me for the sixth time in a row I tend to give up for the next few months.
- If I'm going to be on the 6.47 am train, I am going to use all forces necessary to ensure I get a seat.
- Eye contact: I'm all for it as I am otherwise useless at reading a person, and if you don't meet mine I'll immediately think you're hiding something.
- I tend to go out of my way to conceal how I feel (ew, emotions), until it reaches a point of no return and I either cry or shout at someone.
- Biting off the top, eating the filling and then eating the rest of a Creme Egg.
- Drinking that one drink too many...
- ... then agreeing to go to the pub the day after.
- Saying "just putting that A Level art to good use" every time I do something vaguely creative.
- Making grand plans of going to that new pop-up for lunch to support an independent high street, then going to Pret 'cause it's closer. Every. Bloody. Time.
- Thinking one blog post a week is totally manageable, and then realising preeeetty quickly it's far from it (send help and daylight hours).

Any bad habits you'd care to share? brb, kick-starting whatsapp again.


  1. I absolutely love that scarf, it just completes the outfit perfectly! Your photos are stunning and you look amazing! The way you eat a cream egg is definitely the way to go haha! ;)

  2. Love that scarf, holy moly.
    And that's THE only way to eat a Creme Egg! (Now I may be craving one). My bad habits? Uhhhhhm, although I like to think I'm organised, I actually put things off until the last possible minute - at least in my head it's the last minute. It's still early when I realise other people leave things later. So not necessarily a bad habit to other people? But it is to me!

  3. Haha, love this. So with you on the biting nails one- I'm 25 and still do it, wah. Also, the whole blogging in daylight hours thing is the bane of my life I swear!! Damn you, 9-5!

    Looking gorge btw!

    Jess, hi freckles x

  4. I very much want to steal that scarf. It is perfect! And I am totally with you on the Creme Egg eating method... It is the only way!

  7. Love this post, that button up skirt is perfection! Gorgeous photos, and you list of bad habits made me laugh, as a fellow owner of way too many pairs of black boots haha. Lovely post! :)

  12. I love this blanket scarfs, they are so warm!


  13. This outfit looks so perfect with this scarf! Love it!
    Your photos are awesome too!

    I think one of my worst habits is that I like to stay up at night. Sometimes I may go to bed at six in the morning, and if you ask what I'm doing at nights, I may be reading, writing or just organizing my place!

    Happy New Year!

    Best Regards,

  14. Great outfit, love how a scarf can totally spruce up an outfit :) I recently got a white soft one, and been wearing it every day. My only worry is that I'm gonna ruin it by dropping it somewhere... well I'll have you know I didn't even know what a creme egg was when I first came to the UK. My bad habit is worrying about the most ridiculous thing, sometimes it's like things not being washed or something... I'm trying to pace myself ha!

  17. I LOVE reading other people's bad habits - such a sucker for mundane detail. MORE OF THAT. Also love your little map feature. Sophiexxx

  18. LOVED THE PICS! And the maxi scarf <3

    I'm 23 and I bite my nails too... and of course I also get massively drunk and still go out the following night because why not. Worst habit...

  19. That scarf is lovely! xx

  20. haha loved reading this. I tend to buy a lot of boots that look suspiciously the same as well and I'm really weird with my emotions. To my family I'm a hot mess but in public I swear I barely show any emotions ever...

  21. I am the same with boots! I love them way too much x

  22. Nice Last Shadow Puppets reference :) i also have a few too many pairs of similar but slightly different black boots by the front door as well as an overspill in my car!

    you are suuuper cute dear,

  26. Love your scarf! You look beautiful! and the photos are all really great as well :) hope you are having a fantastic day
    one of my bad habits is when I say I will clean my bathroom or hang up my clothes every day so I can avoid having to do massive cleanouts after it all builds up, but I never do it because I always think ehh I can take care of it later.

  27. I have an obnoxious number of black boots & similar types of shoes. On another note I really like that scarf. :]
