B & M Autumn / Winter Candle Haul

Hi Everyone,

So if you’ve followed my blog for a while, you’ll know that I am completely obsessed with candles. I’d heard about the infamous B&M ‘Bath and Bodyworks’ candle dupes and I was desperate to get my hands on them. Unfortunately I can’t find any online to link for you but I went into store and they had a huge selection there.

I bought a whole range of candles with Autumn scents to Winter ones and they all smell soooo good! Also can we just talk about the packaging… I almost don’t want to burn them because they look so pretty! They were only £2.99 each for two wick candles so you literally can’t go wrong.

Now, we all know that describing scents is the hardest thing ever, so I’ll show you my haul below and then I’d definitely recommend you go and check them out in your local store.

Homemade Halloween Treats Part 2

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone!

So here’s part 2 of my halloween treat series, I hope you enjoy these ideas as much as you did the last two!

Rice Krispie Pumpkins

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Ok so I have to admit, these are probably the most fiddly out of all of the treats I’m showing you! But if you’ve got a bit of patience and persistence, they will look and taste great!

  • Cheekily I used a rice krispie recipe off of the internet because it’s such a simple recipe! It basically involves rice krispies, butter and marshmallows
  • Add orange food colouring to make them as orange as you want them to be
  • Separate the mixture into several sandwich bags, you can make smaller and larger pumpkins, so add as much mixture into each bag for the size that you want
  • Mould the mixture in the bag into a round shape
  • Add a fudge sweet into the top for a stalk (you could also use black liquorice)
  • Tie up each food bag tightly and pop them in the fridge for a couple of hours so they set into a ball shape

Bat Bites

How cute are these! Are they too cute to eat though… Of course not 😉

  • Separate each half of 4 oreos and slice them into halves again. I did this by using a table knife in a slicing motion slowly so that they don’t crack! You should then end up with 16 ‘wings’
  • Melt two bars of milk chocolate in the microwave (roughly 30 seconds but do it 10 seconds at a time and stir until melted)
  • Fill small cupcake cases with the melted chocolate, this mixture made 8
  • Before the chocolate has set, push two wings into each cupcake case at the top and two small white marshmallows at the bottom
  • Add a dot of black piping icing onto the marshmallows for the eyes
  • Put them in the fridge for a couple of hours
  • Once the chocolate has set, remove the cupcake cases carefully so you don’t break the wings

A Year as FashionBelle

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone!

So my blog hit one year old on 23rd September and I can’t believe it, it’s gone so quickly!

When I started my blog, I wanted to inspire both disabled and able bodied people to be who they want to be and to style themselves in anyway they want. I had never let my disability get in the way of my love of fashion and beauty and I wanted to show other disabled people that their disability didn’t need to stop them from standing out in their own unique way.

Honestly a year down the line, when I look back, I thought I’d have more than a thousand instagram followers and hundreds of views on my blog each day; but it doesn’t work like that.. I’ve learnt that I will get nowhere without hard work and determination and that if I continue to do this, then it will pay off eventually!

I enjoy what I do so much, I love writing my blog even though some days after work I just want to chill and do nothing! But my passion is fashion and beauty and I’m so pleased that I have this platform to share it with everyone!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve got so much planned for the future of FashionBelle, but if there are any posts etc that you’d love to see, products you’d like me to review etc, then please let me know in the comments and I would really appreciate it!

British Summer Neutrals

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone,

Because we live in the UK and sometimes our summers aren’t always what we hoped for (fingers crossed this sunshine now stay’s for a bit longer!!), I thought I’d create an outfit that is lovely and light to wear but keeps you warm on the cooler days.

This is the prettiest jumper and so perfect for this outfit because its really lightweight, the fact the fabric almost has holes in it is great for covering up but not so much that it feels like it’s a winter jumper. The peplum detailing and ruffles add a really girly touch to it too.

I wanted to team it with some neutral trousers and the jeggings from Select are my holy grail jeggings! I’ve mentioned them so many times on my blog already, but they are so comfortable and flattering and I adore this colour for summertime.

Espadrilles are what summer is all about; I actually picked these up from Primark last year but I will link an alternative for you below. They add a nautical twist to the look which is finished off with these incredible sunglasses! They’re so fun and unique and I love finding pieces like this to finish off an outfit.

I’m Getting Married!

E Shoot S&N 032

Hi Everyone!

I can’t believe I’m saying this but on Saturday I am getting married! I have been planning with my fiance for way over a year and it’s finally here. Planning a wedding has at times been very stressful but overall, of course it’s been so exciting.

Obviously the next weekend and beyond are going to be super busy, so I just wanted to apologise as my blog posts may be a bit inconsistent for the next couple of months what with swanning off on a honeymoon too 😉

I can’t wait to share details from our day on here; my make up, tips on what I have learnt from planning a wedding and details from our honeymoon. So please keep your eye out on my instagram and twitter for updates and to make sure you don’t miss anything, sign up on here and you will get email notifications!

90s Camouflage

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone!

I love bringing back the 90s trend and this outfit really reflects it. Wearing camouflage can be really grungy sometimes but by pairing it with this pink bomber jacket, it gives it a girly edge. This top is perfect when you’re sitting down all day as it has an open back so it sits really well, it would also look amazing if you’re able bodied as the open back detail is quite unique.
