I’ve been buying a fair bit from Monki recently, in preparation for my trip to Barcelona and for the Summer weather we are yet to have. My boyfriend and I snapped a few outfit shots whilst we were away (of course) and some of those outfits featured my items from Monki (double of course). When I uploaded my photos to instagram I tagged the brand, tagged their styling hashtag and they left a comment on my image. Ok, it was an automated comment but still – I was excited. I agreed to the terms and conditions out using my photo by putting the hashtag #yesmonkistyle on my images. I waited and wondered if my photos would ever show up on their Instagram or Twitter feed…
I ended up on the website. THE WEBSITE.
I can’t even deal with how awesome that is.
This was found totally by accident because it never dawned on me that I could end up there. I’d gone back to the site to grab the link to this jumpsuit to share with one of my followers on instagram, along with a few other links of items I’d bought that I’d recommended. Then I started to have an absolute (excited) meltdown over the fact I was on the website at her (sorry girl!). But to my surprise she told me she already knew because that’s how she found me to follow me. I literally couldn’t believe it!
It may not be a big deal to some but I am really stoked about it. I genuinely feel like it’s an honour to have been chosen. Have I made it in life? I feel like I have. This is better than the time ASOS used one of my tweets.
I’d like to thank my boyfriend for taking this photo, my best friend Annis for getting me a little discount on the item and my Mum, because you always thank a parent, right?

I have no idea how long I’ll be on the site for, perhaps until the item is out of stock? But either way, I’ve got this screenshot, this image and this blog post to remember it. How awesome.
