Facing your Fashion Fears

Friday, 29 September 2017

Oh hello me, in a bright red swimsuit, booty out and all. Today I want to talk to you all about something I have battled with forever, and still do, and I'm sure you do too. Sure enough I advertise myself as a fashion blogger, I should be confident in whatever I wear right? Nope. We all have our insecurities - sometimes there are clothes I just adore, but no way in hell would I be brave enough to wear them. Today I ask you to face your fashion fears, and heck, BUY that item, and bloody well ROCK IT!

Let me present to you holiday outfit number 2! Jamie and I headed out on a whim one night, just to see if we could catch the sunset and boy am I glad we did. These photos are some of my favourite Jamie has ever taken, they're just so beautiful!

Dressed in Red

Friday, 22 September 2017

If you follow me on twitter or instagram, you'll know that (unfortunately) last week I got back from my holiday in Gran Canaria. I had the best time with my boyfriend Jamie but I'm excited to be back home, back at uni, and ready for the academic year ahead! Of course while I was away, my amazing insta boyf took a bunch of outfit photos for me which I'm sharing with you over the next few weeks!

The 5 Product Face

Makeup 5 Product Face

Some days we just don't have time. Those extra 15 minutes in bed are way more worthy than a full face of makeup. With that in mind, I've created the perfect 5 product face - 5 products to give a full make-up look but in half the time.

The skirt that doesn't fit

Friday, 15 September 2017

I have a confession. This skirt does not fit. Every time it goes on I have to do that little wiggle to get it over my bum and my hips, and every time it comes off, it takes at least 5 minutes and is a two man job (Sorry Mum and Jamie). The worst part of all? I have the exact same skirt in blue too.

Bloggers apps and tools

Tuesday, 12 September 2017

After blogging for nearly 5 years now, I've come across some handy little apps and sites that every blogger should use to really ace their content. I really love writing posts that will be useful for other bloggers, like The Ultimate Flatlay Props and How to Blog with a Full Time Job, so today I thought it was about time I shared some of the most useful tools I've come across.

Palm print

Friday, 8 September 2017

Plam print has to be one of my favourite trends of this summer. I'm all for gingham, and frills and a bit of embroidery but theres something about banana leaves (I think that's what they are?!) that I love just a little bit more. Maybe it's because I'm a geographer and I'm supposed to love green leaves and earth 'n' shit.

Spend vs. Save Dry Shampoo

Dry Shampoo Spend vs Save
I would struggle without dry shampoo - it saves me on a weekly basis. For years now I've been using Batiste as my number one go to dry shampoo brand. I've tried a few in the past, but found they left my hair greasy, didn't smell right, or simply didn't quite do the job. As a student, and with some Batiste dry shampoo's costing £5, it's pretty steep. 

What's in my travel bag?

Saturday, 2 September 2017

I'm going on holiday biaaatches! Today I'm off to the airport to jet off to Gran Canaria. I know I'm a bit late with the holiday theme posts but I suppose that's just the way it goes - Jamie and I have opted to go on holiday in September for the last 2 years. Let me tell you it is SO good seeing everyone else jet off on their holidays all summer knowing yours is still to come! I also managed to cop allll of the summer sale goodies last week just in time for our trip. 

Today I thought I'd share some of my must haves in my hand luggage this year.
