Rainy Summer OOTD

securedownload (46)

 

Dressing smart-casual on a colder summers day is an absolute nightmare for me. Inbetweeny clothes always stress me out – why can’t casual just mean casual and summer mean warm weather? Anyone else have these daily dilemmas?

Having said that, I threw this outfit together the other day and am really pleased with it. You can’t go wrong with wearing black.. I think I have a bit of an addiction. Also if you don’t have a leather jacket in your wardrobe please buy one. I feel lost without mine and it goes with everything.

Top – New Look

Skirt – Topshop

Bag – H&M

Headpiece – Topshop

Shoes & Leather Jacket – Vintage

1000 WordPress Followers & A Few Little Tips

1000 followers

 

When I started this blog in October last year, I never thought I’d achieve a 1000 follower goal. I find it crazy that people actually read my ramblings & it’s so nice to see the same people commenting on my posts and being really supportive.

Meeting ViviannaDoesMakeup & Lily Pebbles

securedownload (43)

When I saw that Lily Pebbles and Anna from ViviannaDoesMakeup were doing a meet-up in Grosvenor Square I was beyond excited. They make some of my favourite videos and write my favourite blogs. I’d never been to a beauty event before, so was debating whether to take the plunge and be brave. This Summer I’ve been really pushing myself to do more things and have surprisingly coped outside of my comfort zone. Even though I’d be going alone, it was something I really wanted to do, so I didn’t let that hold me back.

Brighton Days 2&3: Sangria, Beach & The Lanes

securedownload (39)

I can only apologise for the late-ness of this post. I’d gotten into the swing of scheduling blog posts to go up every other day but found myself getting behind. Long story late of my excuse is that I’ve been working with children from 8:30-6 every day and I come home exhausted and just crash down. I’m back on top of things now so nobody panic, still gonna be writing regularly.

Rant over, and I thought I’d tell you guys about days 2 and 3 of my lovely sunny trip in Brighton. I had so much fun writing the last post, so I hope you guys enjoy!

Brighton Day One | Beach, Cocktails & OOTD

brighton day one

After working for a month (doesn’t seem like a lot for anyone who isn’t a student), and before my next job starts, I had a couple of weeks off. I thought it’d be the perfect time for a quick break. The weather was absolutely gorgeous, so what better place to visit than the beach. I hadn’t been to Brighton since I was really young, so wanted to visit again to have an explore and a relax.

Holy Grail Hair Care

securedownload (16)

 

When it comes to hair-care, the majority of people prefer not to splash the cash. There are multitudes of amazing smelling products that seemingly do the job and are faff-free. I used to be one of these people, but still noticed that my hair was really coarse and dry. In the past, I suffered a lot with damaged split ends, and used the Philip Kinglsey elasticiser to rejuvenate my locks (I am still in love with this product – if you have damaged hair definitely check it out).

Battle of the Face Primers

securedownload (15)

Primers were an aspect of my routine I used to be really lazy with. I don’t suffer from oily skin, but do have some dry patches, which makes some products sit badly on my skin and emphasise pores. I’m also a big fan of using cream products, which have a habit of sliding off the skin unless you use a good primer or powder. Along the way of my primer exploration journey, I tried a number of products. I thought I’d give you guys the low-down on what I discovered and if the products really worked :).
