Fashion Blogger Outfit Of The Day, What I Wore Today, River Island Outfit Of The Day, Warehouse Outfit Of The Day, River Island Crop Top, Warehouse Maxi Skirt, Next Sandals,

Hello all! Looks like the traditional British weather is back with a vengeance! Though it is quite nice for a change for it to not be humid and sticky, if only it could be dry as well! These photos were taken at the weekend - luckily when the weather was still holding out. I went on a shopping trip with my mum to Leicester to return a few things and for a general look around - I must admit I had to force myself to put a Reiss skirt that was still £50 in the sale back down. We then went for a late lunch and cocktails at Coast to Coast - an American restaurant and bar. We had never been there before, but the food and drinks were gorgeousssss - a special mention for the red berry cheesecake cocktail, it literally tasted so real!

Crop Top - River Island | Maxi Skirt £22 - Warehouse | Shoes - Next | Necklace - Next | Bag - Oasis | Sunglasses £4.99 - Ebay

Fashion Haul // Ebay

2 comments
Ebay fashion haul, Bargain fashion haul, Ebay Fashion, High Street Haul


Hello all! As you may have already seen, I did an Ebay beauty haul detailing all my lovely beauty and make up bargains that I had picked up since joining the world of Ebay a couple of weeks ago. I am now going to show you all my fashion bargains! There are quite a few as I get a bit over excited bidding on things, I get the mentality that I *have* to win if I like something, but anyway I think I've found some real gems and I'd definitely continue shopping on the website.

Beauty Haul // Ebay

Ebay beauty haul, make up haul, clinique make up, clinique beauty products, max factor lip gloss, maybelline lip stain


Hello lovelies! So as some of you know, I have recently joined the world of Ebay and I must say in the two weeks I have been a member I have become hooked! I love the excitement of bidding on an item and grabbing a bargain - and boy have I got some bargains so far! I am going to share with you what I have won so far and I am going to split it into several posts as I have got quite a bit (I must admit I did get a bit trigger happy with the bidding :p) This post is going to be dedicated to my beauty and make-up purchases, I thought it was a great way to try different products without having to fork out full price for them, so if you have something you want in particular it is really easy to search; there is everything from high street to designer branded make up and everything in between, and you can get many things for way under face value!

Trend // Summer Style And The City

Leave a Comment
Unless you have moved to the Arctic recently, you will have noticed it has been hot, hot hot! We have had weeks of basking in the sun, firing up the BBQ and making the most of the weather whilst we still can. It has been an excuse to get our pasty English skin on show and finally get the chance to wear the latest summer trends; perfectly fine for when we're lazing around in beer gardens or local parks, but how do you survive the heat when in a professional environment?

We can't exactly turn up to the office in our latest crop top and denim shorts; yes it might be trendy, and yes it's too hot to wear proper clothes but I'm sure your boss will not approve of your lack of clothing. It's very hard for 9-5ers to find a happy medium between looking smart but staying cool in weather like this, especially in cramped, humid offices with air conditioning about as useful as a chocolate teapot; but fortunately Next has a go to collection for fashionable and slick summer work clothing that will help you survive the city heatwave in the latest styles

Outfit Of The Day // 19th July

Leave a Comment

We made it guys, it's finally the weekend! I definitely had that Friday feeling which was made even better when I was allowed to leave work an hour early - score! Had a lovely afternoon chilling and having a cheeky drink with my mum whilst catching up on TV. It seems like I have so much on my to-do list over the weekend so I hope I don't get distracted by the prospect of spending all day in the sun.

Daniel Footwear Wish List!

Leave a Comment


In my opinion, a girl can never have too many shoes! There are so many styles, heights colours and textures; we are spoilt for choice when it comes to picking our footwear and there is something for every occasion and event possible. I recently came across Daniel Footwear, which is a boutique that provides on trend and stylish footwear and accessories. Featuring labels such as UGG, Chloe, Michael Kors, Hunter and the own Daniel brand to name a few, there is an extensive collection available at highly competitive prices - check out what's available here

I think a girl should own at least one of each of the main styles of the season to compliment the varying trends and I have devised my own wishlist of the top styles available on Daniel Footwear as part of the blogger competition. (If you would like to enter as well I will detail what you need to do at the end of my post)

Outfit Of The Day // 17th July

Leave a Comment

Hello guys! Another day of melting in paradise, I definitely would like a heatwave better if I had a pool/beach within walking distance rather than a desk! - A cocktail or a bottle of Kopparberg would do nicely as well. I have once again got my legs out in the hope of them getting just a smidge of colour, but alas no joy so far, you wouldn't think I've been to Mexico recently!

Hello lovelies! Oh my goodness when I mentioned the weather in last week's posts, I had no idea it would have lasted this long! Or even that it's looking like we've got another week of this heatwave - brilliant! well.. not so brilliant when you are stuck in a stuffy office 9-5 during the week with no air con. I just hope the weather lasts another weekend.

How To Get Your Wardrobe For Less!

Leave a Comment
 Like me, I'm sure a lot of you are students wishing your money would stretch that little bit further! I always lust after the latest must have items and I wish I could justify spending large amounts of money that I should really leave in my bank account. So when I find similar items that has a student friendly price tag I just can't resist!

As students, although as much as we like to believe, we don't have unlimited money to spend on clothing but we don't always see the difference between needing something and wanting something, especially when there is so much temptation living away from home and retailers trying to entice us to spend. Thankfully I've become a lot more savvy since starting University; I determine whether I *really* need something to avoid impulse buying something that I will never wear as well as researching online to find the look I want for the best value for money. I've made a list of the best websites that will help you get the style you want for a lot less than you thought!

Outfit Of The Day // 7th July

Leave a Comment

Hi all! what a day! Not only was it gorgeous weather once again, Andy Murray smashed it and became the first Brit to win at Wimbledon since Fred Perry 77 years ago. So yes, my day consisted of watching the tennis down in my parent's pub as well as raiding Tesco for any BBQ related food so we could have a BBQ feast out in the sun with a few cheeky drinks! I'm so glad I'm in a 9-5 job on my placement as I get to fully enjoy the weekends, when I worked in retail I worked most weekends as well as being in Uni most of the week, so I really appreciate the free time I have now to do whatever I want for the year! I chose this outfit as it was loose fitting and casual, though after a while I did have to take the gilet off as it was just too warm; it seemed to be hotter in my house than outside!

Outfit Of The Day // 6th July

Leave a Comment

Hello all! I hope you are all taking advantage of this fabulous weather we are experiencing; looks like summer is finally here! Knowing England though this will be our only bout of sunshine for the rest of the summer. As I am now working full time as a Buying Assistant, my only free time is at the weekend, so I certainly wanted to be out in the sun whilst I could! I chose this outfit as it was light and airy as well as being very summery, perfect for lunch with my dad and spending some of the evening in the beer garden with my mum (my parents run and live above a country pub, I know it's a student's dream to live in a pub :p).

Haute Right Now // Part II

I hope you all like my first installment of 'Haute right now' featuring Versace, Christian Dior, Giambatista Valli and Chanel's couture collections from this week. I'm going to continue with the capsule reviews of the collections that were featured later on in the week and I hope you like looking at them as much as I do! Couture really excites me and I would die happy if I ever got to wear an outfit as magnificent as some of the ones featured, a girl can dream!

Haute Right Now // Part I

Leave a Comment
Couture Fashion Week has to be my favourite time in the fashion calendar, I could spend hours poring over all the pictures of the most beautiful and theatrical garments that shock and stir people's emotions. When I designed at college I would always look at the fashion juggernauts for inspiration  and I would always be drawn to the couture shows and my mind would be buzzing with creativity; excited to experiment and not be afraid to break the limits. I guess I'm a bit of a magpie, I love anything that shimmers and sparkles and excites my senses. Everyone loves a bit of drama and extravagance, couture is not realistic but it causes people to dream and fantasise. I couldn't wait to get some free time and start looking through the latest couture collections,  in particular Elie Saab's, which has been my favourite for the past few seasons.

Review // L'Oreal Steam Pod

10 comments
Hello guys! I have a real treat for you today, if you suffer from thick, frizzy or lacklustre hair and can't go a day without your GHDs or will protect your hair at all costs against the elements then this could be your hair saviour and THE END of bad hair days!

Now a bit of my hair background, I have suffered from chronically frizzy hair for the majority of my life, you wouldn't believe I had hardly any hair until I was 3 or 4! My hair is mid length but ultra thick. Now it wouldn't be a problem to have thick hair if it was naturally straight or curly, but unfortunately (as you will soon see, gulp!), mine is a cross between Monica from Friends when she goes to Barbados, Anne Hathaway in The Princess Diaries and Chewbacca.

Every time I wash my hair, I will probably spend 20 minutes washing, 20 minutes drying and 70 minutes straightening, if I want to curl my hair I have to straighten first then curl, so add another 60 minutes on top. That's up to 3 hours to wash and style my hair!!! Now I have better things to do with my time then have to go through this process 2 times a week, so the amount of time I spend doing my hair is ridiculous and laborious! I'm always envious of people who have naturally beautiful hair that's never out of place when I spend hours doing mine for it to go fluffy and horrible at the slightest hint of rain or humidity, which usually results in me touching up my hair with my GHDs every day.

I thought GHDs were the best thing I would ever get for my hair, don't get me wrong they are good, but I have to use them so much my hair looks over processed and as my boyfriend always says 'has a burnt hair smell'. As my hair is so thick it can handle the heat, but it just doesn't look nice, smooth and glossy.

My latest trip to the hairdressers resulted me sitting having my hair blow dried within an inch of it's life, producing so much smoke and steam they had to open the fire doors to prevent the alarms going off (a regular embarrassment for me). The owner of the salon came over to me and said 'instead of going through all this, would you like to try the steam pod treatment?' Now, you might be asking yourself 'what the hell is a steam pod?'

Outfit Of The Day // 1st July

Leave a Comment

Hello lovely readers! I hope you all had a lovely sunny weekend, we're being treated in the Midlands with another nice day, not as hot as yesterday but I'm not complaining as I'm accustomed to the constant rain of Manchester!

I was due to start my placement today but I was given the day off as they are relocating their offices to a bigger building, this now means I will only have to travel 10 minutes to work rather than half an hour which I won't be complaining about! I can't wait to see the new building tomorrow and get started with my placement year as a buyer's assistant.

Today was a more casual day than I was expecting but it was nice to have today off to settle in a bit more to my new surroundings. So today's outfit reflects my laid back day of running errands with my mum in town, grocery shopping and walking our Shar-Pei Toby down the park.

As it was a little milder today, I opted for some black tights and my leather jacket to throw on top, though I had to take it off a few times when the sun popped out! I seem to be paying tribute to America today with my converse and American flag on my t-shirt

Top from Gap - Shorts £28 Topshop - Tights £3 Primark - Sneakers from Converse - Necklace £5 Dorothy Perkins

(I don't have prices for some items as I've had them a while and they are no longer on sale)

Outfit Of The Day // 30th June

Leave a Comment

I thought I would start to post some of the outfits that I wear to showcase my own style and influences. I have invested quite a bit in a holiday wardrobe as well as a working wardrobe for my upcoming placement, so I have lots of lovely new clothes to show you all!

As you may have noticed, I recently went on holiday to Mexico (see post here), so you will see that my outfit is inspired quite a bit by the Aztec trend! I apologise for the camera quality, I resorted to using my IPhone as my camera is still packed somewhere from moving house on Friday!

Today it was nice and sunny, so it was any excuse to spend time in the garden and try to extend my tan for a little longer! This outfit is cool and casual, perfect for Sundays in the sunshine.

Top £9.99 New Look - Skirt £22 Miss Selfridge - Shoes £12 New Look - Necklace £10 Next - Bracelets $4 from Mexico
