Statement Bomber Jacket

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone,

I love having new places to photograph my outfits and we shot these whilst in beautiful St Albans!

Like pretty much everyone at the moment, I am obsessed with a bomber jacket. They’re the perfect shape when you’re sitting in a wheelchair and they’re never too tight on the arms so I can still drive and move easily! When I saw this one I instantly fell in love; the print is beautiful with an oriental feel and I like the range of colours (so many outfit options!). This one was on the more expensive side, but there are so many others out there and I’ll link a few different options below.

For this look I wore a white slogan t-shirt so that the jacket would stand out, biker jeggings and a black hat and boots for contrast.

A Weekend in St Albans

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone!

So this weekend I took my fiancé to St Albans for his birthday and I thought I would do a blog post all about it!

I’d never been before and it’s always so exciting to go somewhere new and explore! We arrived late on Friday night to our hotel which was the Premier Inn in the City centre. The staff were fantastic the whole time we were there and after calling ahead to make sure we had a wet room and bed raisers (if you have a manual hoist, you’ll know what I’m talking about!) we got to our room and it was great. The bedroom and wet room were huge, perfect for manoeuvring around.

On Saturday morning we woke up and had a cheeky breakfast at Costa which was lovely. We tried to look for a local cafe but it was freezing so we decided to go to the nearest place! Unfortunately it rained all day Saturday, but we persevered and wandered around the shops which were on the high street literally a 2 minute walk from the hotel.

There was a really lovely place called Christopher’s Place where there were some lovely shops; I had to take a cheeky look in Space NK but I was strong and managed to walk back out without buying anything! Definitely have a few things on my wish list though, namely the new Nars Spring Collection!

We also stumbled across a really love cafe called Kanuka where they sell all sorts of different flavour tea. I’ve never liked hot drinks my whole life until the end of last year where I started to drink lemon & ginger and other fruit teas, so I was in heaven! They had every flavour you could imagine including strawberries & cream, popcorn and choco nut caramel which I had to try!

You can buy Kanuka Tea online here.

Luckily on Sunday the rain disappeared and we were able to explore the cathedral, but not before we had devoured a delicious unlimited breakfast at the Premier Inn!

The cathedral was free to enter and is something I’d recommend to look around, just to appreciate the history and the sheer size of it!

Before heading home we stopped in a little shop called Raindrops on Roses (cutest name for any Sound of Music fans!!) and it had so many lovely things in it. I came out purchasing a gorgeous Lipstick print which I can’t wait to put on my wall!

I love travelling in both the UK and abroad, where would you recommend?

Much love,

Always good to remember though, it doesn’t matter how much you spend, nothing will matter more than making memories! But if you do want to to treat your Mum’s/ Grandma’s/ Nan’s then hopefully this has helped!

Rose Gold Trainers

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone!

I’ve got to admit that my love for trainers is strong! When you’ve got wide feet like me, there is nothing comfier and I thank the fashion gods that they are still on trend for the spring/ summer season! Everything is rose gold or copper at the moment from home ware to jewellery, so its no surprise that it’s now moved into fashion. I fell in love with these trainers the moment I saw them on the website and they didn’t disappoint!

They’re so comfortable, the colour is amazing and really sets off an outfit. I wanted to keep the rest of my look quite simple and I picked up the rose gold in my sunglasses to finish the outfit off.

Kiko BFF Make Up Collection Review

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone!

Happy Valentines Day!

When Kiko launched their new BFF collection, I instantly fell in love! Kiko is a relatively new brand to the UK and it’s extremely affordable. I first purchased some of their products when I was in Spain but they are opening up more and more shops around the UK which makes their stuff much easier to get your hands on!

The BFF collection couldn’t be more perfect for a Valentine’s Day post! As you can see, the packaging is stunning and the products are really good too. I only purchased a couple of pieces; there are 6 lipsticks in total, 6 lip pencils, 3 nail polish shades and even more available in store or online.

The face palette has 2 shades of blush and a bronzer; they’re all really illuminating so I think I’ll get much more use of them in summertime for a fresh face look.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Not only are these the prettiest lipsticks I’ve ever seen but they also have a great formula. They’re moisturising and creamy but not super glossy either for those of you who love a matte lip!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I was really surprised when I opened the box for the lipbalm, that the heart shaped pot came in a little pink drawstring pouch, which for the price is amazing and makes it feel very high end. The balm itself is quite sheer with a subtle hint of colour, it’s really easy to apply and moistures lips well.

Have you ever tried Kiko products before? What else would you recommend that I try?

Much Love,

Valentines Day Outfit

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone!

As it’s Valentines Day on Sunday, I thought I’d show you an outfit that I thought would be perfect for whatever you get up too! It’s quite simple but I really wanted the accessories to stand out. I love this tweed-style layer dress which I picked up in the January sales as it’s a stretchy material so it’s really comfortable but the design makes it a bit more special than an everyday dress.

Of course as it’s valentines I had to use this bright red bag in the shape of some lips and my heart sunglasses! They just add a bit of fun to the whole outfit and I pulled the look together with bright red lipstick too.

Slogan Tee

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone!

I’ve been noticing a lot of slogan tee’s in the shops lately and I really love the trend, so when I saw this one I had to snap it up! The material is a blue grey which went perfectly with this stripe cardi. I love the different tones of blue and although it’s not technically denim, I felt it really lent into this spring/summer trend.

I know you’re not ‘supposed’ to mix navy blue and black together but it’s actually one of my favourite combinations! I’m currently obsessed with these¬†black boots and if you’ve read some of my previous blog posts, you’ll know that my others from Primark would be hard to beat! They’re also in wide fit so they’re really comfy, with a small heel which means that they will smarten up any outfit.
