Style is something that's incredibly important to not only boost your confidence and self expression too however the hotter months can bring with them their own considerations in terms of potential outfits. In preparation for a Summer holiday away it's always good to add a few new pieces to get you excited for the break, so when the folks at Hammond & Co* from Debenhams got in touch it was the perfect excuse to play dress with my favourite guy. How are you dressing for Summer?
The sun has officially (and finally) come out to play in the UK and although it's still a little hit and miss at times in general the heat is on the up. During the warmer months it's incredibly important to protect and hydrate yourself against the beautiful rays so the effect of your damaged skin isn't as bad. Here are some essentials in my sunburn fighting kit, what do you need?
Since April I've been fortunate enough to start producing items for my own stock shop. After the completion of Woodland Wanders, my first photo set, it came to me that not everyone wants a whole batch of images especially if they're only interested in 1 or 2 so with that in mind there are some exciting new addition and something for you. How do you feel about stock shops? Which are your favourite?
During April / May of this year my motivation and creativity levels in regards to Not Copper Armour were incredibly low. A slump in inspiration is something we've all experienced from time to time but how we overcome this period is just as important as understanding why it happened. How do you come back after any kind of crash when your muse leaves you (be it a complete surprise or not)?
Summer has definitely arrived bringing with it heatwaves, adventures and icecreams; the warmer months are the perfect excuse to step away from any black in your wardrobe and introduce something new by the use of colour or lines. What are your Summer essential items? Which is your bag of choice?
Minus a Christmas break I've been a fairly frequent gym goer now for approximately a year and although I'm not a fan of willing myself to go, it's been one of the best life decisions I could've made both for my physical and mental health. If you've been thinking about joining the gym here are a few valuable lessons I've taken away from my time pumping iron. What kind of exercise regime do you have? What lessons have you taken away from your experience of it?
At the start of April this year I announced the relaunch of Not Copper Armour and all the new things it had to offer with its look, feel and features - this has all been created due to a move to Squarespace. It's been the best decision I could have ever made for my tiny piece of internet and it's has the potential scope for so much more. Are you considering a move to any other blog hosting site? Have you moved and do you like it?

For me style is important for not only as a form of self expression but it can also give you a boost of confidence when you may not necessarily be feeling your best, an item that represents this is the midi skirt. I'm usually found gallivanting in leggings and an oversized shirt but when the heat kicks in I find it the perfect excuse to switch things up a little bit to prevent falling into a complete style rut. How do you style the mid skirt? What your favourite summer staples?
