LEVIS VINTAGE

by Friday, January 1, 2016

Ignore my socket plug things, this is me using my wall for outfit pictures when it’s too dark and rainy to take them outside. UK bloggers you know what it’s like.

Onto outfit details, ‘those levis that give you thighs’ is what comes to mind. Not that I needed anymore thighs, however I’ve been waiting to wear these high waist levis vintage jeans ever since getting pregnant and my bump arrival.

SANDSTORM

by Thursday, December 10, 2015

Recently I teamed up with DOCSNEAKER to show you how to style the latest in kicks. I’ve been trying to get my hands on the nike air max 1 sand patch babies forever, they’re pretty limited and so I was unsuccessful in my endeavours, until DOCSNEAKER hooked me up. Yaaaas.

TOM FORD

by Wednesday, December 9, 2015

Tom Ford BEAUTY were kind enough to send me some new products to try and review for you, and of course I snapped up the chance because A) Tom Ford and B) MAKE UP YAY.

All in all the ‘extreme mascara’, the ‘eye defining pen’, nail lacquer in ‘bordeaux lust’, the ‘brow sculpting kit’ & the ‘violet fatale’ lip colour.

Of course I had a little play around with everything, set my camera on self timer

MILKSHAKE

by Wednesday, December 2, 2015

How’d you like pink? I like it, I like it A LOT. Especially when it’s dusted pink, in fact dusted anything I love. I also love these textured HM scarves I can’t seem to stop wearing, btw they’ve just released a new maroon/copper colour (I’ll be posting a look with it soon obvs).

POSTNATAL BLUES

by Saturday, November 21, 2015

I'veΒ come across the term 'postnatal depression' also known as 'postpartum depression' so many times, and more during my pregnancy than ever. Skimming through various info snippets here and there on all the pregnancy and maternity websites that I found myself glued to on most nights during my third trimester! Never really giving it much thought, ...

STYLE THE BUMP | BACK IN BUSINESS

by Monday, November 16, 2015

I’m back!

Okay that was a short sentence, in case you hadn’t noticed I haven’t posted on my blog for MONTHS now. Basically, MONTHS ago I closed it down in the hopes of bringing it back with a fresh look a couple of weeks later.. that then turned into several weeks, which turned to a month and then the most part of a year! In between all of that, I fell pregnant and forgot about it completely!

LAYERS

by Monday, January 26, 2015

Slowly getting a little sick of colours.

It happens every once in a while, and when you see the black wave below, you know it has indeed, happened. ‘The getting sick’ that is. It’s also surprisingly quite warm pairing jersey midi skirts with thick tights you know, compared to my baggy jeans anyway.

Nothing special coming at you today, just a plain black handy look suitable for many of us accustomed to dressing ‘modestly’.

SKINNY ANKLES

by Wednesday, January 21, 2015

It’s not a colour I’d usually consider for a coat, but when you find something in the SALE, it sort of changes your rules a little. I’m talking about this very PINK and VERY creased coat I picked up in H&M over the xmas holidays! Why I didn’t iron this I’m yet to provide an excuse. It does look larger than the usual oversized even, but then again it is a size 18. You know what I’m like when it comes to getting things WAY too big. Even so, it’s keeping me warm so far all the way down to my ankles. So I’m not even slightly worried about the extra pair of hips it’s giving me in pictures!

TURBAN TYING | LIBERTYLONDON

by Thursday, January 15, 2015

So if you watch my youtube videos you’ll know what this post is about, and be equally EGG CITED with me!

Recently I had the most perfect opportunity come along my way to collaborate on a little styling project with LIBERTY LONDON. I was super excited, for reasons that are so obvious they do not need explaining, hah! No seriously, my sister and I LOVE Liberty and their fabric prints, so what perfect combination than to style one of their printed scarves! I filmed two turban looks with one of their ICONIC LIBERTY print scarves, specifically the Hera design, an a array of classic peacock feathers in gorgeous pink and blue hues.

It’s freezing and I’m LOVING it. Winter time is exquisite and I can’t quite get enough.

My turban is wrapped a little different today, I’ve been experimenting in front of the mirror with some new twists! Keep a look out in the new year for different turban tying!

BACK HOME

by Saturday, December 20, 2014

I’ve been missing on this blog since September, and even back then I’d say I was disappearing now and then. Hello and welcome back to my blog, the new year is around the corner and so here’s my attempt at getting back ‘on it.’ As you may or may not know, this past year had me out of the country for the majority of it, I recently came back from a life changing month away in Indonesia and can safely say, it feels so good to be home.
