Holiday style is one of my favourite parts about heading off to the sun. On holiday you get to wear super fun stuff that sometimes you can’t wear at home! (I’m lookin’ at you cute swimsuit) It’s so fun to go shopping and style up outfits for the evening too. I’ve just come back from my travels and I wanted to share three of my staple pieces that I wore on my latest vacay. Let me know what your favourite pieces are. I’ve linked up some similar pieces that I also love from ASOS. Enjoy!
Can we say that spring is here now? Finally! We’ve had a few days of around 15 degrees and I think that’s pretty great. Basically just because I don’t have the leave the house wrapped up in a hat, scarf, bomber jacket and parka when I go to work. Winner!
I live in a really hilly, high up place in Nottingham where it’s literally always 5 x colder than it is in the city centre so I’m always chilly on my commute. I’m glad that I can now get back to wearing half my wardrobe again! Trousers, jumpsuits, jackets and tops that I’ve put off wearing for months because it’s basically been too cold. Does anyone else have a summer and winter wardrobe? I always try to pack away some summery pieces so I don’t confuse my wardrobe. I just wish I had a walk in wardrobe so I could see everything better, don’t you?
A bit of a rambly post today, all about blogging and the world of influencers! At the moment, it feels like everyone is a blogger and also, at the same time, everyone is making it seriously big! These girls are giving up their jobs to be their own bosses, travel the world and absolutely smash it. I love following these girls, I love blogging and I (obviously) love paid jobs with brands I love but, would I want to do it full time?
Hey Christmas vouchers, presents to exchange and mon-aaay! It’s Boxing Day, it’s time to spend that dollar and get some stuff you actually want. Let’s talk beauty bargains.
First up an absolute steal of three of Benefit’s amazing tinted lip balms, Posiebalm mini, Benebalm mini and Chachabalm mini in a super cute Benefit Lip Hydrator Trio for only £11.30! Next in line is this beautiful little Clarins 5 Minute Kit With BB Cream in Shade 02 which is £13.33 on Boots at the moment. You have the fab BB Skin Perfecting Cream SPF25 in 02 Medium 15ml which I featured in this post (plot spoiler, I love it), there’s also the amazing Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector 01 Rose Shimmer which is an awesome lip balm/gloss, the Be Long Mascara and a super cute tiny Blush Prodige 02 Soft Peach which is the perfect handbag size.

Winter is well and truly here and it’s time to get snuggly. One of my latest loves is this Black & Grey Colourblock Cape from Mint Velvet. I love this piece because you can easily just wear it as a huge scarf or a wrap around your shoulders as well as wear it like the cape it’s designed to be (it’s got arm holes!). It’s really versatile.
Party season is a comin’ people! It’s time to get sparkly, sequinned up and sassy because no doubt you’re going to have all kinds of nights out, parties and get togethers to go to over the next couple of months. I’m not usually a really girly girl during the day, I live in trainers most of the time, but, I do love a little bit of sparkle when it comes to the festive period. Here are 6 of the best sequin pieces on the market right now, ranging from the pricey to the pocket-friendly!
I know it’s uncharacteristically warm for September but I’m really craving a temperature drop! I can’t wait to layer up with cosy scarves and knitwear and I always feel like I look nicer in the autumn and winter, style-wise. I’m much more comfortable when I’m wrapped up and I much prefer darker colours and thicker materials like leather and wool. Here’s my new season wish list. Come on weather, keep up!
I spend a lot of my time in denim, black, white and navy with a sprinkling (OK, a bucket load) of Breton stripes. This is my usual wardrobe but when I head abroad to warmer weather I like to mix it up a bit with some jazzy prints and something a bit more exciting. These are my top 5 holiday pieces from my holiday just gone.
Summer changes your skin, that’s for sure. I’ve recently just got over a two-year crazy bad bout of cystic acne on my forehead (with the help of antibiotics) and it’s finally changed how I feel about skincare. I feel like I can really enjoy skincare again because I’m not just focusing on the blemishes, I can really see other skincare products working. I’ve been loving face masks again and it’s got me really excited so I thought I’d share some that are on my wishlist and some that I already love using.
Say hello to my favourite new trousers. They’re just like forgotten P.E kit tracksuit bottoms and they really are the comfiest things ever! Plus, they go with almost everything because, monochrome. These ASOS babies are also under £30 which is a super-bargain and are really great quality. Styled up here with my (also favourite and super comfortable) Vans Old Skool and trusty white knit.
