Reflecting on 2016

Firstly, I just wanted to say that if you're reading this I want to wish you a Happy New Year 🎉🍾 and thank you so much for following both new and old subscribers my blog. I hope, like myself, you can see a slow improvement on my content and I vow to keep on growing and evolving over the next year also. 

This year has been such an up and down year for me personally with both highs and low I know this sounds like such a cliche thing to say but its true i've been through so much this year that has taught me a lot and allowed me to grow as a person. It hasn't been easy, but then again whats 'easy' these days ?!

Last Minute Gift Guide ; Luxury

With less than two weeks to go until Christmas Day it's time to step the shopping up a notch if you haven't already got everything you need and unlike me, you're super prepared whoops! You may have caught my stocking filler gift guide for both him and her previously, listing ideas under £25. Well this time i've decided to do a little last minute gift guide and this time have it a little bit more luxury.

Stocking Fillers For Him ; Under £15

Following on from my stocking fillers for her  I obviously couldn't miss out a one for him. Lets face it, it can be difficult finding little fillers for the man in your life, they're a lot harder to buy for I think personally, because for me you can't go wrong with perfume, makeup etc for women. 

When it comes to buying for you boyfriend, brother, father or even male friend it can be a little more tricky to find little gifts that perhaps will go alongside a larger gift.

Stocking Fillers For Her ; Under £15

It is finally December, which means I can officially get into the Christmas Spirit. And boy did I do just that last weekend when I headed off to London for a bit of Christmas shopping and a visit to Winter Wonderland Hyde Park.  🎄❆ (which was amazing fyi)

And so after doing a bit of retail therapy myself and battling my way through thousands of shoppers all trying to get to the same place I decided it was a good idea to put together a little gift guide for last minute stocking fillers under £15

Tan Day Thursday's

You may or may not have seen a past post where I shared with you my first time experience with the Bondi Sands Tan and I actually really loved it. And i've been using that particular one ever since as my go to. However recently i've been wanting to branch out and see if I can find another alternative. 

And so the hunting began ...

Mens Fashion ; Designer v Highstreet

You probably will have noticed that my blog is dedicated to women's fashion/beauty etc for 99% of the time. But for a while now i've been toying with the idea of introducing a little more mens fashion into the mix to spice things up a bit and add a little bit of variety.

We all know that these days men love fashion just as much as we do and that's a good thing so I thought about it and decided for my first test post i'd put together

Winter Warmers

I have to be honest Winter isn't really my favourite season going. It's cold, dark and miserable and it makes you want to do nothing more than curl up in a ball on the sofa and watch movies and trashy tv whilst sipping on a large cup of hot chocolate, well for me anyway.

My Zara Picks

I love Zara as much as the next person seriously. I think it offers everything from your basic's to your more luxe and staple pieces. With such good quality at affordable prices there's literally something for everyone, I can't remember the last time I wasn't able to find anything in there.

It's My Birthday (Almost!)

So it's the 1st of November and it's almost my birthday, so I thought why not put together a little wish list of things i'm loving and lusting after right now.

Ivy Park A/W16 Collection

For those of you who haven't heard of Ivy Park then first of all, er where have you been ?! and second of all you need to know about this brand. It's a brand which was co-founded by none other than the Queen Bee, Beyonce.

Clinique 'pep-start' Review

On a recent spare of the moment shopping trip I came across the Clinique concession stand on my way out of the store and my eyes were instantly drawn towards the new 'pep-start' collection. I'd heard a little bit about this new collection whilst scrolling through Instagram.

Wednesday, 26 October 2016


It's almost that time of year and although i'm personally not a fan of the whole dressing up thing i've been seeing quite a few ideas of things that could be worn on nights out if you have any planned around this time.

Luxury For Less

I love all things fashion as much as the next person I'm sure and although i'd love to have an endless amount of money to buy every single thing I see and love, it just isn't feasible or realistic for me (for now, yes I like to think positively and that one day i'll have everything i'll have everything i'll ever want) but for now shopping around for alternatives has kinda become my thing.

Happy 1st Birthday!

Okay, where the heck do I start?!? ... Today is such a big day to me, for me, well for my blog!  It officially marks the 365th day that I took 'fingers to keyboard?' and took the plunge and decided to take the plunge and turn my dreams and passion into a reality....

Sunday Shopping Spree

Who doesn't love a sale though seriously? And when you're signed up to like a million emails and you get instant updates telling you theres upto 50% off it would be rude not to look right?! ...

Autumn Edit

I officially feel that this last week has well and truly been the start for that autumnal feeling, for me anyway. The temperature has dropped slightly and the dark nights have crept upon us fast. 
This is what prompted me to get online and find some pieces for the forthcoming season ahead.

I just love receiving these monthly boxes and i'm always so intrigued to find out what little goodies I'm going to find when I open them. This is my third box that i've received so lets take a look inside...

Gucci For Less

Fashion lovers hold the front door!! have I got a treat for you. The much coveted and loved Gucci Princetown Leather Slippers which are everywheeeeere this season, especially on Instagram as fashion bloggers and lovers alike have been posting their pictures of them.

At first I must admit I didn't really like them by boy have they grown on me.

LFW ; Julien MacDonald Spring/Summer 2017

Since Fashion Week started in New York I have loved keeping up to date with the imagery appearing on social media and following bloggers day to day business whilst there. Now that the first week is over it is time to focus on a place a little closer to home which means it's time for London Fashion Week. wahoooo

Giuseppe Zanotti Review

It will be a few months now since I first purchased my first pair of Giuseppe Zanetti shoes and they were none other than the Cruel Summers.  These shoes are to die for and I can't wait to show you more of them....

NYFW ; Brandon Maxwell Spring/Summer 2017

Brandon Maxwell 

Brandon Maxwell is a designer that I had only came across this year, and I must admit i've became a bit of a fan. It is a luxury women's ready to wear label which was launched New York in 2015.

NYFW ; Vera Wang Spring/Summer 2017

Vera Wang

I love love LOVE Vera Wang, these designs are unique, structured and mix minimal with detailed bead work. She is such an iconic designer it wouldn't be the same without her collections hitting the run way and it is of course only right that it be previewed in New York. 

Tuesday, 13 September 2016

NYFW ; Zimmerman Spring/Summer 2017

Spring/Summer 2017 

The Zimmerman show is one of those collections that I always look forward too. Although it's not necessarily something that I would wear maybe if I had an event I love the intricate fabric and lace designs as well as the feminine and flowing styles.

Look Fantastic '#LFBESTOFBRITISH' Review

It's been one month now since I received my second instalment of the Look Fantastic beauty box. This time around it was a special #LFBESTOFBRITISH edition which featured six cute little goodies from British brands. 

The box is super cute, all pink and girly with the British flag on the front.

Sarah Ashcroft x Missguided Collection

I'm a big fan of this British Blogger Miss Sarah Ashcroft I think she's come so far and she's still relatively young and really has it all going for her. I was excited for her at the thought of her launching her own collaboration with one of the biggest online fashion websites where you can find on trend pieces at affordable prices.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Review

Around a week ago now I received a cute little parcel from Jeffree Star Cosmetics (here) and it was none other than the 'King Tut Skin Frost'. 

Upon first impressions it was wrapped cutely in silver paper and bubble wrap sealed with a Jeffree Star sticker

My Top 5 Tips ...

... for Healthier Looking Skin 

To be honest when it comes to my skin routine it's no secret that I keep everything basic and to a minimum. I know as well as most of you that when it comes to skin care the products in which are available can be very confusing as well as expensive.

ASOS - Under £30

I spend a lot, and I mean a lot, of time browsing the internet looking for things I can spend my hard earned cash on. And as much as I like finding new brands and websites to shop on I know that I can always rely on one particular website to stock pretty much anything I want to get my hands on.

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lip Review

If you caught one of my latest posts about the Huda Beauty lip contour pencils then you will have seen that I had been lusting after the Liquid Matte lipsticks from the same brand. 
And finally around a week ago they landed on Cult Beauty after witnessing people purchasing them in Dubai and the US.

Topshop Wishlist

I love online shopping, and even just browsing to get a feel of what the latest trends are and the new pieces everyone is lusting after. I like when other people put together a little preview of what they're loving for those days when I'm feeling a little less inspired. So i've chosen some new pieces from Toyshop to hopefully inspire you....

Designer Footwear - For Him

If you read my last post you would have seen me put together a short list, a kind of wish list in a way, of some of the Designer trainers/sneakers that i'm really into at the moment. And as that one was dedicated to the ladies I thought it only fair to do one for the guys as well.

Sneakers - High End

I LOVE sneakers I can't even try to deny it. I LOVE heels too, don't get me wrong, they make me feel confident, sexy and feminine and can really change the look of an outfit, but boy sneakers are just an 'easy' convenient shoe to throw on whether you're running errands or going to the shops. 

I've recently become a little obsessed with high end/designer sneakers because I really think the designs and quality of the products (okay some not all) are really refreshing and add that little something different from regular Nike trainers for example.

I love working out, I admit it. For me it helps relieve stress, releases endorphins and makes me feel happy and more confident in my self. When it comes to working out I like to make sure i'm wearing the appropriate clothing with the necessary support, because lets face it I don't want to be running *attempting to run* and end up with an injury or have something fall out of place #bigboobproblems.
