You and Me Always – Jill Mansell – Review

(While you try to get that song out of your head, have a read of this)

Lily’s always been surrounded by love. 

Ever since her mother died, she’s been cared for by friends who are as close as any family.

Coral, her mum’s best best friend, Pasty, her old babysitter – and even Dan, Patsy’s incorrigible younger brother – have always been there for her. 

But when the chance comes to meet the man who was the love of her mother’s life, Lily knows she has to take it. Getting to know him could change everything, and not just for Lily… Continue reading “You and Me Always – Jill Mansell – Review”

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine – Gail Honeyman – Review

Eleanor Oliphant leads a simple life. She wears the same clothes to work every day, eats the same meal deal for lunch every day and buys the same two bottles of vodka to drink every weekend.

Eleanor Oliphant is happy. Nothing is missing from her carefully timetabled existence. Except, sometimes, everything…

Pureple Outfit Planner – App Review

So when watching the legendary 90s film Clueless I was always envious of Cher Horowitz’s wardrobe and even more envious of the computer programme she created that helped her choose her outfits for the day. So cue 22 years later and Pureple has finally done it!

So anyway onto the app…

I first saw Pureple on Safiya Nygaard’s YouTube channel where she let the app pick her outfits for the whole week. (Check out the video below!)

So I was sceptical of the app actually working, being able to pick my outfits and make an outfit that I didn’t realise I had.

I can see the app being very helpful in certain situations whether it’s for an event, work or a date night, but for just normal every day? Maybe not…

 

Pureple is a fairly straight forward app to use, first you have a list of options on what to do, once you’ve done the boring choosing a name and password you can start choosing your outfits.

So now for the tedious part… To be able to choose your clothes, the app needs to know what you have in your closet, so it is time to take photo’s of your wardrobe and start adding your pieces.

Once it’s all put into the app, you choose what category of clothing you want to wear and then you let the magic happen and it will search through your clothes, shoes and accessories and choose you an outfit.

Once it’s decided you get a list of outfits you can save by either swiping right for it being a good choice or left for it being a bad outfit. (it’s tinder for clothes…)

It’s a free app in the app store, and as long as you can deal with the tediousness of putting in every item of clothing you have then it could be really good for you.
