Checked linen shirt: Vintage. Necklace: H&M(Similar). Black crop: New Look. Cream midi dress: Topshop (old)(Similar). Sandals: Next. Sunglasses: New Look.

We're nearing the end of Glastonbury and I'm so gutted that i'm not there. We tried and failed to get tickets, but there we go!

Now, if I did manage to go and enjoy the delights of Glasto, this is totally the type of outfit I would rock. I have been to quite a few festivals in my time, so if you're like me and like to get right to the front of crowds, then you need something lightweight and comfortable. 

Hair up is totally a must! 

Are you attending any festivals this year?

Acai bowl.

Sunday, 21 June 2015

Well, I've been on a health kick for quite sometime now, and it's been eye opening to say the least. I think when you start to take your health into your hands, and truly think about what you're putting into your body, it can change the way you think and the way you feel. And who wouldn't want that?

One of my fave new dishes has to be an acai bowl. I tend to have this for breakfast on the weekends, when I have a little extra time and fancy a sweet treat.


-1x heaped tablespoon of acai powder,
-1x tablespoon of chia seeds,
-1x frozen banana,
-1x handful of strawberries,
-1x handful of raspberries,
-1x tablespoon of almond butter,
-A small serving of liquid, I tend to use almond milk or coconut soya milk.

Place all ingredients into the a blender and blend until smooth. I tend to sprinkle a seed or trail mix onto the top just before serving.

Summer uniform.

Friday, 12 June 2015

Sunglasses: New Look (Similar). Shirt: Zara (Similar). Wrap Skirt: WarehouseBoots: Topshop (Similar).

With this delightful weather gracing us of late, I will be wearing a variation of this outfit, on a daily basis.

Now I do enjoy the warm weather, but I truly cannot stand feeling hot and sweaty *shudders*.
So it's all about light weight materials and loose fitting items. All topped off with my ever faithful top knot.

Now someone point me in the direction of a good beer garden..

Stepping into summer.

Monday, 8 June 2015
I feel like i'm no longer in the UK, the weather has been glorious and i'm developing a delightful glow. Happy days.
I do believe shoes make an outfit, so it's about time I refresh my shoe collection and get ready to step into summer. Here's an assortment of just how I would like to do that:

I remember when I was younger and used to be taken to Brantano to get my school shoes, I did enjoy those days and would try on shoe after shoe.
Now I may no longer need school shoes, but I do need shoes (of course). And the great thing about Brantano is the sheer amount of options and multiple different brands, including Clarks. 

Every season, without fail, New Look win the shoe game. 
It is safe to say that 75% of my New Look wish-list is shoes. Affordable prices and a ridiculous amount of variety means there's something for everyone!

Which are you faves?

Layers in June.

Tuesday, 2 June 2015

Biker, Grey Tee and Roll-up Jeans: New Look. Midi Dress: Topshop (Similar). Cross Over Mules: H&M (Similar).

I don't know about you, but I most certainly can't keep up with this weather. One minute it's lashing it down with rain, and I'm sporting a summer dress with sunglasses (no umbrella of course!). The next minute it's ridiculously warm, but i've got a scarf and chunky knit jumper on.

I can't keep up!

On this particular day, it was incredibly grey and cold, but very bright (hence the squinting!). For days like these, I have reverted back to my favourite autumn/winter styling and gone for layers.. You can never really go wrong with layers.. FACT!

Oh, and the reason why i'm giggling in one of the photos, my little sister can't help but make me laugh. Love her!
