Katch Me if you can!

Well well well. We have another month of lockdown ahead of us. So while we’re all at home again we might as well make ourselves comfy and cute at the same time. My top tip – loungewear! Imagine my joy when online fashion brand Katch Me reached out to me and asked if I fancied trying some of their cute and comfy clothes out.

I hadn’t heard of Katch Me before but I’m always excited to hear about new brands and after a little browse of their website I was surprised that I hadn’t heard of them.

Anyway, the first thing I chose to try on was this grey oversized sweater dress which, not gonna lie, is probably going to be my uniform for the next 6 months! It’s like my favourite hoody but long enough to cover my bum so I can wear it with leggings without feeling self conscious. I absolutely love it.

Also the hood is perfect for if it starts raining or you know, “go away don’t talk to me I’m social distancing” haha! Also, might I add that this is loungewear I am still happy to leave the house in – as evidenced by my photos. It looks like clothes rather than pyjamas so it’s a big win in my books!

As it’s getting quite cold now I also chose this super sweet pink double pocket teddy trucker jacket. This particular trucker jacket comes in various colours but I chose pink because
a) its my favourite and
b) who doesn’t want to look like candyfloss?!

Katch Me have quite the assortment of coats and jackets but I particularly like this one because the ‘teddy’ material makes it snuggly, although the cropped element means its probably best worn in Autumn/Spring. In fact, the pretty pink colour would make it perfect for spring!

The bag ladies among you may have spotted the handsome number I was sporting on both of those photo op days. Well you’re in luck my friends because Katch Me sell bags too!

This bag is called the Alicia Brown Multiway Faux Leather Bag because the eagle eyes may have clocked the 2 different straps on it! How genius!

There’s the long brown shoulder strap for when you’re out shopping or running errands or whatever. And then there’s the short fluffy handle strap for when you’re out for dinner or drinks (when we’re allowed again!). Also I have to say the fluffy handle feels really nice in your hand.

Brown isn’t normally my colour, however, what I do appreciate about it is how versatile it is. This bag is the perfect size to fit the bare essentials in (phone, purse, keys, mask, anti-bac) without me needlessly filling it up with pens, receipts and other junk, so I have a feeling this bag will make it into my every day, every occasion arsenal.

So if you fancy treating yo’self go check out the Katch Me collections.

Fabulous Fashion

How’s your lockdown going? Bored yet? Well if you’re like me and have absolutely no intention of braving the shops just yet then you may have succumbed to a little online retail therapy. The girls at Femme Luxe Finery got in touch again and sent me some more clothes so I could conduct my own fashion shoot during lockdown hehe. So if you’re looking for a little fashion inspo keep scrolling…

Saving the World Slogan Print T-Shirt

Black 'Saving The World' Slogan Print T-Shirt

This slogan print t-shirt is channelling the ‘stay home, save lives’ message and Femme Luxe are kindly donating 100% of the profits from the sale of this t-shirt to the NHS. I may look silly but I just couldn’t get the idea out of my head so decided to wear a sarong as a cape and traipse off to the fields behind my house for a little photoshoot. Well, if you’re gonna wear a t-shirt with ‘Saving the World’ written on it, you gotta look the part right? I teamed it with black leggings and chunky black boots for a slightly dressed down rock chick vibe.

Wine One Shoulder Ruched Slinky Midi Dress

Femme Luxe Wine One Shoulder Ruched Slinky Midi Dress

You know I love a dress, especially a red one. Well, this beaut is just like the black one from my first Femme Luxe haul but it’s a rich red wine colour. If there’s one thing that Femme Luxe Finery do well it’s dresses, particularly their slinky midi dresses – this one actually comes in 9 different colours and is so flattering. I am looking forward to wearing this out when we’re allowed to have parties again!

Sage Mesh Overlay Long Sleeve Mini Dress

Sage Mesh Overlay Long Sleeve Mini Dress

This little number is a bit different for me. Its a tight fitting mini dress in a gorgeous sage green colour. I’m not normally a huge fan of green clothing but sage is such a pretty colour! The sleeves are a delicate mesh material which add something a little different to this outfit. This would look great with a summer tan, so I best get working on that one!

Rose Short Sleeve Boxy Loungewear Set

Rose Short Sleeve Boxy Loungewear Set

Last but not least is this loungewear set which is a pretty blush pink and has a slightly cropped length in leg and a boxy shaped body. This is an ideal outfit for when you can’t go out out (hello covid-19!) so you can look and feel a little more presentable than if you were just lounging about in your PJs. I’m a big fan of a loungewear set as it allows me to feel comfortable without looking completely scruffy.

Go check out Femme Luxe for all the latest in fashion for staying in and going out!

Learning Tarot in Lockdown

Day 86 of lockdown… or so I think? I’ve completed an online course, upcycled a piece of furniture, baked a cake, cleared out some of my drawers, dyed my hair pink, done some drawing, followed youtube fitness videos, questioned my life choices, watched ALOT of tv and spent ALOT of time on the internet. So what next?

Well for the last month or so I’ve been learning to read Tarot! I’ve always been a secret hippy at heart and used to love browsing the alternative shops when I was on holiday in the UK as a child. I remember wanting some Tarot cards as a young teen but my mum wouldn’t let me and then I kinda forgot all about it until recently.

learning tarot in lockdown

After much research online I decided to purchase the traditional Original Rider Waite Tarot cards as they are the easiest for beginners to learn, however I have got my eye on a few other stunning decks so I can see why people get addicted to collecting them!

I also downloaded 3 books on my Amazon Kindle Unlimited trial, they are Tarot for beginners by Meg Hayertz, Tarot for beginners by Lisa Chamberlain and How to read Tarot by Jessica Wiggan. I then noted down key words from each book about each of the cards and tried a few of the spreads out.

I’ve been keeping a diary of meanings and readings I’ve done for myself. One really cool thing that’s happened is when I did a reading a couple of weeks ago something came up telling me that someone from my past may be in touch with me. About 6 days later I received an email from a childhood friend who emigrated to Germany over a decade ago!

I also did a Tarot reading for my cat which basically told me that he thinks I’m in control and a bit too forceful and cuddly. He’s bored and either wants a bit more playtime and adventure… OR he’s really just bored of me and wants me to go out more hahaha!

Anyway I’ll keep you posted on my Tarot journey.

FREE Kindle books to read during lockdown

If you have an Amazon Kindle (or even the Kindle app for tablets) did you know you can get a 2 month free trial to Kindle Unlimited? No, neither did I until the other week. As I already smashed through 5 books during the first month of lockdown I thought it was definitely worth my while getting a free trial. So here’s what else I have been reading…

4 Riverside Close – Diana Wilkinson

I demolished this book in less than 24 hours. This is a psychological thriller centred around Riverside Close, a middle class cul-de-sac in North London and a seemingly harmless social networking site called ‘Join me’ inviting people to connect and socialise with like-minded individuals. The chapters are narrated by four different characters but because they are all so different I didn’t find it confusing and I think as the author had made the characters quite well-rounded, it helped me to picture them in my mind. In the opening chapter we learn that there is a murder on the close, the book is then a build up towards the murder and introduces the characters and possible motives. I personally didn’t work out whodunnit until it was revealed, which made it quite an engrossing read. My favourite character was Alexis – a young woman with desires to become a private investigator – and I would love the author to write a spin off with her and her friends Gary and Olive. The feel of the book reminded me of Desperate Housewives so I think fans of that show would enjoy this read.

Checking Out – Nick Spalding

Checking Out is the story of Nathan, a 33 year old man who has made a small fortune creating beloved children’s characters in the form of singing fruit and veg. But before Nathan can fully enjoy his money and freedom he discovers that he has a deadly brain tumour. We then follow Nathan and the bizarre situations he finds himself in as he deals with anger at his misfortune, a potential new love interest as well as the nagging urgency to do something meaningful with his life.  I must admit I was slightly anxious reading this given the subject matter but actually found it quite a humourous, uplifting and thought provoking read.

The Other Wife – Claire McGowan

This is a mysterious thriller which centres mainly on two women, Suzi and Nora, who live in a small remote rural village in Kent. Both are hiding secrets and it is their loneliness initially that bonds them, but we later find out that there is more to both these women than meets the eye. Throw in a few more characters and you have a story that builds quite slowly but then picks up pace with its twists and turns. The chapters are narrated by different characters so it can become a little confusing at some points, but bear with it and it will make sense in the end.

Jessica Beam is a Hot Mess – Kirsty Greenwood

Jessica Beam is your fun friend, a commitment-phobe party girl who drinks, swears and sleeps around. Her so-called best friend Summer has had enough of her shenanigans and after a disasterous event, Jessica finds herself homeless and penniless. The only person Jessica can turn to is her long lost grandmother Matilda – author of a series of books popular in the 1950s teaching women how to conduct themselves and catch the perfect man. For the sake of a new book and some much needed money, Matilda transforms Jess from Hot Mess to Demure Woman in order to capture the heart of one of London’s most famous playboys.
I loved this book. It was funny and even though she’s a bit trashy I still really liked Jessica. All the characters were wonderful apart from Summer.
If you’re looking for some lighthearted fun and entertainment I would recommend this book.


That’s just the tip of the iceberg. I’ve already read another three books on Kindle Unlimited but I don’t know if I will write about them but you can read some of my previous book reviews here.

What have you read lately that you would recommend?
