This week was a first. After years of watching me receive blogger mail and having none of his own, the lovely people at petshopbowl sent Teddy (the crazy dreadlocked thing you see in some of my photos) a parcel all of his own! It was even sent in a recycled box and contained all of his favourites including a kong , dentasticks and much more!
So this post is a bit different for me, but here goes. I'm a bit of a recluse in the blogging world and don't really attend many blogging events. Don't ask me why... I'm definitely not too busy as 99.8% of my spare time is spent watching Netflix in bed, preferably with some form of biscuit in hand. But last week I was lucky enough to be invited for dinner with the guys at links of london to celebrate Manchester's hidden gems and this wasn't really something I could turn down. Obviously I jumped at the chance (especially as us Northern birds don't always have the time or the funds to travel to London for events) and I was so happy that I finally got to eat at Manchester House as I've been wanting to go for ages!
The food, the bar and the people were all completely amazing ( I took a particular shine to the bathroom as you can see, where I even found myself swooning over the soap dish... A SOAP DISH PEOPLE) and it made me so happy to hear about places in my hometown that I've never even been to! If you live in manchester or if you fancy a trip, make sure you go to the places on the hidden gems map! Katie hand picked these all herself (hey Katie) and she's totally nailed it in my opinion. The Links hidden gems are some of my all time faves and contribute to why I love Manchester so much!
I also received a mini friendship bracelet that hasn't been off my wrist since and will definitely be coming on holiday with me to Croatia in the next few weeks (yep I'm going away again!)
Anyways, I think I'm going to be posting lots more than just outfit posts and include things that I do day to day from now on, just to keep Fashion-fade nice and eclectic as I always intended it to be!
So once again, I went MIA but I'm back with a distinct lack of hair (WAHH) and an all new looking fashion fade for you all.
Apart from being out of the country for about a month, I kind of fell out of love with blogging but I have a new improved layout and post style coming that feels so much more natural and a bit more "me" so fingers crossed you like it too!
I'll be posting lots more of my inspirations and general musings instead of just photos of the outfits I occasionally decide to share.... although, outfits are still kinda my thang so don't you worry.

She had glitter in her eyes and ice in her heart.
This is a forgotten details post that I shot a few months back when the weather was grey, so I thought I'd share it with you before the weather gets warmer and all I want to do is post summery things.
the dress was sent to me at Christmas by the guys at Rare and I wore it to my Christmas party with massive black clompy shoes and dark red lips. I love the way that it makes you look like an ice queen in Winter but will probably look a whole new level of dreamy on a beach in Summer.
In other news... I really need to blog more. I think that in a strange turn of events, after promising to blog more, I've actually started doing it less! But I've had a pretty mental month and lots of things that were all up in the air are now changing for the better and I can get on with blogging and other lovely things.
I'm also going to Budapest at the end of April so if anyone has any lovely tips/ suggestions of what to do and where to stay that would be amazing and I will love you forever!
I'm currently pretty MIA on social media as I've got a lot on, but hopefully I'll be blogging a bit more soon. I've also been contacted by the guys at American Apparel which is something that I can't wait to share with you....so there will be lots of lovely posts soon to come.
I've also developed an unhealthy obsession with pinterest which is currently inspiring me so much and making me look at where I want to travel to/ move to in the next year. You can follow me HERE.
Lots of love,
