Instagram’s Impact on Mental Health

Instagram is one of the biggest movers and shakers in fashion communication and promotion, but the promotion of perfect lifestyle is negatively impacting Instagram users. I was prompted to read the Guardian article discussion with the headline, ‘Instagram is supposed to be friendly. So why is it making people so miserable?’ It really got me…

Chatsworth House

Over the last couple of years, I have fallen more in love with stately homes and beautiful gardens and grounds. As part of my job as a Welcome Week Ambassador, I was lucky enough to be taken to Chatsworth House, located in the heart of the Peak District near Bakewell and was the location of…

Designjunction 2018

Designjunction London 2018 took place on 20-23 September 2018 at South Bank, London. I was walking along the River Thames and suddenly spotted structures and installations in the near and far distance. I unfortunately got there just as the design works were being dismantled and in some cases, shipped away. Having said this, I still…

Vegan Fudgy Brownies

These brownies are possibly mine and my mum’s all-time favourite sweet treat. The brownies are gooey and fudgy and I love the crunchy bits of nut on top. I used peanuts as this is what I had in my cupboard at the time, however feel free to use any nuts you like the best. Serving…

Black Bean Corn Bread Recipe

This recipe is perfect for big batch cooking; I froze the leftovers for lunches later in the week. The bread is crispy and golden on top but soft in the middle. It pairs very well with a bean stew or five bean chilli – the texture combination of the beans in the stew and crumbly…

As the article states, ‘Orla Kiely ceased trading after its parent company,…

I was due a catch-up with one of my friends from uni. We decided to go to brunch and my friend suggested going to the Fox Cafe. I had walked past the front of this cafe so many times, but haven’t had a chance to explore inside. Seeing that my last name is Fox, it…

Vegan Apple Crumble Recipe

I don’t usually love a dessert like an apple crumble, however this one is definitely an exception! This particular recipe makes the sweetest little treat and they are so delicious, especially when warm out of the oven. I love serving them as a little afternoon tea bites or with a dollop of ice-cream or Greek…

Fashion month is upon us, and New York is kicking off proceedings in style. A mix of established and emerging brands are making prominent statements on the catwalk. Away from the runway, loose, floating wrap dresses, practical jumpsuits, playful leopard-print pieces are appearing on New York streets. Victoria Magrath, known as ‘In The Frow’ on…

Veggie Scotch Eggs Recipe

These, I find, are a great addition to any meal. I love them as part of a simple lunch bowl with veggies, brown rice or even with homemade baked beans and avocado for brunch. They are also really simple to make and just need five kitchen cupboard ingredients. This recipe makes 2 scotch eggs. Ingredients:…
