A short essay on photography and mental print

France Hossegor Photography Lake FrancePine Forest France I still cannot stop taking mini snapshots of everything I see in my head. I think, one day, my over stimulated-sometimes-childlike brain is going to simply protest and ask me to just STOP be quiet Fiona. Just let me take is EASY for a few minutes.

My top 3 most underrated fashion buys

Fashion trends come and go, but there are some fashion garments that continue to stand the test of time. Unfortunately some of these items get more love and attention than others! Think about the LBD (Little Black Dress), everyone appreciates this a classic look and that it should be a wardrobe essential; for that reason, whatever the season, you’ll always be able to find one on the high street. If you could do with updating your wardrobe with some fashion staples, here’s a look at three of the most underrated fashion buys and why you should keep your eyes peeled for these the next time you’re browsing:

Women's cardigans

The perfect cardi

Cardigans are a garment no longer reserved for OAPS and are now found all over women’s clothing sections on the high-street. When you’ve worked hard on an outfit, needing to cover up because of the cold can be frustrating; cardigans are a wonderful solution. They can provide a layer of warmth with the option to leave the front open and still reveal the other garments you spent hours picking. With a cardigan you don’t have to cover up that vintage tee, or hideaway your pretty patterned midi dress.


There are many cuts of cardigan available too, making them a versatile choice. Choose from a slim-fit, crop, V-neck, Grandpa cut or chunky knit – the sort of cardi you’ll pick will depend on your body shape and the season. The difficulty when cardi shopping is the limited choice, despite their practical appeal, cardigans are rarely available in interesting patterns or prints, with block colours being the popular design. So, when you do come across a stand-out cardi garment – snap it up fast! It can be worn from season to season.
