Weekend Casual

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone,

Sometimes I love a casual outfit perfect for a Sunday stroll in the park and comfy for chilling at home and this is perfect.The major thing is the jumper which I am in love with! Just because it’s a casual look, it doesn’t mean it has to be boring 😉

The jumper comes super oversized and I’m actually wearing an XSmall (possibly for the first time in my entire life) so not only does it make you feel great about yourself but it looks amazing too!

I recently discovered these jeggings and they are so comfortable and easy to get on. I really like the tone of blue that they are in as they’re not too bright and more of a true denim colour in my eyes which is hard to find in jeggings. They’re so stretchy that I think I could have gone down a size, but I’m impatient and I just wanted to wear them too much!

AW16 Trend Series – Grunge Spirit

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone!

This is the second part of my AW16 trend series and this time I’m talking you through ‘Grunge Spirit’. I had so much fun styling this look; I think it’s partly due to me reverting back to my emo days 😉

This trend incorporates everything 90’s, chokers, tartan, leopard print, brooches and layering. I wanted to give a girly edge to my look but you could also style it with ripped jeans, a rock band tee and leather jacket. I have linked some other alternatives below. My inspiration off the catwalk for this trend was from Burberry, Alexander Wang, Victoria Beckham and Prada.

Hi Everyone!

Ok obviously not everybody wants to be a cat… but I just couldn’t get the Aristocats out of my head while I was writing this post!! I fell in love with this cap when I saw it on the website, it’s so quirky and fun and I love wearing something that will start a conversation!

It’s a gorgeous velvet black and is adjustable at the back so it’s really comfy and completely perfect for days when I can’t be bothered to do much with my hair as it sasses up any outfit!

I think I’m getting into Autumn mode because I seem to be wearing a lot more black again lately and this mesh top was a complete bargain, I’ve seen other versions of the same thing in other shops much pricier!

You know how much I love khaki from other posts and these leggings are just a dream. The open knee cut out detail is so cool to add interest to a more casual look.

I added some other statement accessories but equally if you don’t like to wear much jewellery etc you could just wear the cap and let it speak for itself.

August Favourites

Hi Everyone!

Here we are again for another monthly favourites and I feel like I say this every time, but hasn’t this month flown by?! Here are a few things that I have been loving this month, there’s not as many as usual as I feel like I’ve been using a lot of the same make up as in my July favourites and also I have lots of new things to review and try!

Makeup Favourites

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Josie Maran – Illuminizer – £19.00

My friend brought this back for me from America after I had seen reviews on youtube raving about it; I have been mixing this in with my foundation and I love the effect that it has. It makes my skin naturally dewy and bright without looking sparkly as the shimmer is very subtle.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Benefit – Gimme Brow – £18.50

I actually got this free sample in a magazine this month, I had never used it before and it’s actually a complete game changer! I have very full brows anyway, so if I’m going for a natural look all I have to do it comb this through them and I’m done!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

NYX – Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi – £5.50

I find some nude lip colours really hard to wear but I love this shade as it compliments my skin tone. It glides on really easily and isn’t too drying which is perfect.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Tarte – Tartelette in Bloom Palette – £33.00

I hadn’t really tried many Tarte eye products before I purchased this palette but I am completely sold! All of the shades are really buttery and easy to blend and there is a brilliant mixture of both matte and shimmery shades which mean it can be used just as easily for daytime and evening looks.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

L’Oreal Sexybalm – £4.99

These have to be my favourite favourite of the month! The sexybalms come in both sheer and bold, both of which are incredible. Even the sheer balms are very pigmented and moisturising as are the bold shades. You have to take your time applying the brighter shades because they can slide around on the lips a lot but after 5 – 10 minutes of them setting in, the colour will literally not budge for hours on end which is amazing for a balm.

Random Favourites

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

River Island – Cat Cap – £16.00

My fashion favourite for this month is this cap, I haven’t taken it off since I got it! I can put it on when I’m wearing the most boring, comfortable, everyday outfit and it gives instant sass!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Marks and Spencer – Honey BBQ Wholegrain Snacks – £2.00

These snacks come in 5 small bags and they taste sooo good! I can kind of convince myself that they are healthy as they’re ‘guilt free snacking’ which is great in my books. I’d definitely recommend you trying them if you haven’t already!

TV Show – How to Get Away with Murder

This is an american tv show on Netflix which is about a group of students training to be lawyers and the trials they have to go through to defend murderers in the court room, whilst their own lives get turned upside down. It has so many twists and turns and it kept me on the edge of my seat right up until the last second.

So these are my monthly favourites, what have yours been for August?

Much Love,

Nineties Throwback

Hi Everyone,

You may notice a theme emerging on my blog with my love for khaki dresses! But I wanted to show you a different way to wear one compared to my last post here.

I love the 90s trend at the moment and layering t-shirts under dresses for a unique look. This dress is perfect for me as it’s huge so it’s comfortable when sitting but I decided to cinch in the waist to give me some shape. I also love adding a print to make a statement on an outfit and camouflage is really popular at the moment which I have used in this neck tie.

I have mentioned my feet before and how much I hate them! And I always struggle to find shoes which fit me because my feet are so wide, it’s one of the things I get from my disability that I hate the most! But these trainers are so awesome and I’ve barely taken them off since the start of summer! The trainer part covers up most of my feet which is brilliant and the fact they are open at the back keeps them perfect for the hot weather and to slip on and off so easily!
