Valentines Day Outfit Inspiration



Hello lovely ladies, a nice bright post from me today. I have well and truly been sucked into all things Valentinesy but to be honest, I am just a sucker for pretty bright things and I'm not going to lie, the dresses about get me very excited for Spring. Valentines Day is just around the corner (seriously, that one crept up quickly!) whether you're a single pringle, you're ready to mingle, you're taken or you just really don't care - I think these beauties are perfect for a girls night out, a date night or just a nice meal - or you could always just buy one and dance around your bedroom in it (if you're anti-vday, don't worry!). I absolutely adore them and not just for Valentines day, but for Spring too. I know they're ALL on my hit list so let's talk about them...

I am already back into Spring mode, Spring is easily my favourite month because it means I can wear white more often! Last week I was invited to London for an exciting event with Motel and I also stopped off for some afternoon tea with one of my favourite girlies. It was a chilly day when I shot this look so I teamed this gorgeous white dress with my favourite knee highs and my trusty leather jacket. I also added my current favourite chunky jumper for a nice layered effect! Let's talk white dresses, brunch and afternoon tea!

I feel so excited and privledged to be one of the first people to wear their amazing new range.

I am in love with fitness and I feel like this is a great way to reintroduce it to my blog.

Girls Night Out With Victoria, InTheFrow + Thomson Scene

When a girls night out presents itself to you, you can hardly say no can you? Any excuse to catch up with one of my favourite people and longest blogging friends - a girl who through blogging, has become a genuine true friend to me. A few weeks ago I was invited to an event with Thomson travel and I actually decided not to go, I'm not a fan of going to events etc by myself and got wobbly feet but then the night before, that friend in question, Victoria said she was going so we decided to go together! Let's talk cocktails, little black dresses and a few too many bubbles...

My Life In Black + White With Sure Crystal Invisible Black + White Diamond!

Sure crystal invisible black

When I was challenged by Sure to put on my favourite little black dress and test out their new deodorant, I could hardly say no - I am that person who ALWAYS gets white marks on my black clothes, I don't know how, but it's always me so I was ready to put this product and my lovely new dress through it's paces. Everyone has to wear deodorant unfortunately so we may as well make sure we're using the best one. Oh and you lovely readers also get the chance to win a Michael Kors bag too so it's worth reading on! Let's talk about this gorgeous LBD and see how it got on...

Topshop Make Up Review; Topshop Foundation, Smokey Eye Palette And Lipstick

topshop make up review
Ah Topshop, as a nation, we adore Topshop - you can't walk down the street without someone wearing  something that you also own from there. I know I'm glued to the place, even though it breaks my bank balance. In more recent years, Topshop has grown (so have it's prices) but hey, we still love our good old British brand. Not so long ago, they released a beauty collection and it's gone from strength to strength, me however,only properly tried some of their new pieces this year (shocking I know) so I thought I'd do a review of the Topshop beauty range and give you my thoughts and first impressions when it comes to Topshop make up... can they make clothes and beauty products? You're about to find out...

A Crisp Day In North Yorkshire; Outfit Of The Day

uk lifestyle blogger
I love Yorkshire. I love Northern England. I feel so fortunate and grateful to live in such a beautiful place and I feel like I should show it off more. As much as I adore running around London (it is my second home after all) there's no beating good old Yorkshire. It's funny, I've done so much travelling recently but actually, what's on my door step is true beauty within itself. I decided to take my camera out with me on a crisp Winter's day (the sun looked so beautiful) and I want you to come for a little walk around one of my local towns with me...

A Personal Reflection; 2014 in Photos, New Year's Resolutions and More...


Instead of doing a 'my most popular posts of 2014' post, I thought I'd do a timeline of my year - the things I feel I've achieved, the places I've visited, the food I've eaten (all with clickable links too so if you missed those posts, you can catch up on them!) I've literally had the time of my life this year, obviously I've had ups and downs but I really think we should celebrate this year, after all, rainy days make flowers anyway so who cares. Let's move into the new year remembering the best parts of 2014, my recent personal posts went down really well too (thank you for the lovely comments) so I've added in a little personal chat and obviously as promised, we're talking about new years resolutions too... grab a hot chocolate and say hello to 2015 with me...

The Floaty Boho Dress with Ghost, New Year's Walks + Roast Dinner!


Firstly, happy new year! I wish you all an amazing 2015 (soppy, 2015 style resolutions post coming your way very shortly). I decided to go and shoot my first outfit of the day down my street this week. It's funny, but you sometimes forget about the beauty right in front of you, I have such beautiful countryside right outside my front door and I feel so grateful. It felt good to get out into the open air and just take in the beautiful scenery that surrounds me (and click away at the camera). I absolutely adore this dress, it feels so boho, fresh and floaty which is why I decided to take it out into the countryside to shoot, here's my first blog post of 2015! I guess that makes it a pretty special one right?
