What’s next?

Hello people! Remember me? I know, I know….I haven’t blogged in like forever! It’s a mix of life just being too busy, losing a bit of motivation to blog (I am still pretty active on Instagram) and not really being sure anymore what my ‘niche’ is on this blog. I started this blog 7 years ago very much as a beauty blogger, and it then over time it became more about fashion and lifestyle with a big focus on food by adding my favourite recipes and recommending foodie places to visit. So now, what’s next…?

10 Things About Me

You may notice that the blog has got a bit of a new look going on! You could call it a makeover, or a make-under for that matter because I actually decided to go for a more simple modern look this time around. It’s still a bit of a work in progress but I really like it and hope you do too? Thought I would start the new look blog with a random list of 10 things about me..

Celebrate what you love!

People often ask me ‘do you write negative reviews on your blog’? And if you are a regular reader of Dutchess Roz you probably know the answer to this already being; not really! When I started this blog I made the conscious decision that I wanted it to be a positive experience, for myself and for my readers. Now this doesn’t mean that I would ever lie and write a positive review about a product or restaurant when I actually secretly hated it. No, it’s more that one of my philosophies in life is to “Celebrate what you love, rather than putting down what you hate!”


On this blog I want to mainly share my positive experiences, for example; that beauty product I can’t get enough of, talking about an amazing restaurant I went to,  my travel stories, motivating quotes, or blogging about a delicious recipe I think you should try! Of course this doesn’t mean I never have negative experiences. Often I will try products that I am not that impressed with, or I’ve been to restaurants were I thought the food or service wasn’t great. But I just decide not to share those moments on here, because instead of putting things down, I prefer to share the positive and celebrate what I love!

I do pinky-promise that whatever I write on my blog is always my honest opinion! I have for example blogged before about certain products or places that I felt were over-hyped for what they were, but in general I tend to mainly share about what I truly enjoyed and loved. There are plenty of other beauty, food and lifestyle blogs out there that will give you more detailed reviews including negative reviews and I think that’s great, because I personally find them very helpful when deciding on products to buy or places to go. But this is just the way I am, I prefer to spread joy and positiveness! :)

What do you think of my ‘Celebrate what you love’ philosophy? Happy Hump Day!

Such a thing as too many statement necklaces?

I think a girl can never have too many statement necklaces. Well….I’m currently totally hooked on them that’s for sure. I got this new goodie at H&M recently for only £14 and I think it just jazzes up any simple outfit. Think a little black dress, a colourful top with jeans or just like this with your favourite chambray shirt!

I love the brass/gold chain with the big diamond pieces. It gives it an edgy look!

These are some other statement necklaces I am loving at the moment. So pretty!
Like I said, a girl can never have too many statement necklaces right?
