The MOTEL night out

Dress - MOTEL / Faux fur gilet - F21 / Earrings - Black tied
(I got caught in the rain on the way..*cries!*) MOTEL Gabby sequin dress

Hey dolls,
Recently I was kindly invited to the No-tell MOTEL night out! I trotted over to the MOTEL showroom just off Oxford street for a sneak peek of the A/W range, some of the items are out already and some are out over the next few weeks/months incase anyone wondered!
The whole room was so colourful, chic and funky! There was an ever-so-tempting spread of cakes, sushi, popcorn and bubbly. There was a hairdressers table, a Nails rock table (the nail foils) and of course there was a beautiful array of A/W apparel which included lashings of sequins, crosses, chiffon, leather, denim, stripes, dots & geometric prints.

I thought I would take some snaps for my blog to share with you what will be arriving soon at MOTEL and to hopefully make you as excited as I am haha! Also a little side-note, while on their site recently I discovered they now sell Jeffrey campbells! They stock some awesome designs!

I had my nails done by the lovely Katie and I chose the 3D black caviar-inspired nails, though I also had my eyes on those turquoise ones. It was such a lovely evening and everyone at MOTEL was so friendly and I want to say a big thank you to all of the gorgeous girls at MOTEL!

Hope you enjoyed this post =]

Chunky gold + The maxi








On the way back home I saw this cat, its so furry! Sorry for the complete randomness
Top - Topshop / Maxi Dress - ASOS / Boots - Topshop / Necklace - HRH Collection / *Bag - Missguided / Bracelet - Shop style suzi / Sunnies - H&M / Nails - Topshop Utilitarian

Hey dolls,
This evening I headed to an event and before I left I thought I would snap my outfit of the evening. I don't have anyone to take my style photos for me so I usually venture out with a tripod looking slightly like a crazy person - and today was no exception. I got some pretty weird looks haha but oh well!

I have been dying to style this maxi dress and so put a simple outfit together based around it. I know theres not too much to the outfit but I was going for quite a laid-back look but with some more grown-up accessories. I am in LOVE with this bag! Its from Missguided and is so much cheaper than the similar Zara one, plus its amazing quality. I also chose my Topshop Allegras, I hadnt worn them for a while and thought they worked with the outfit. Later on I chucked on a leather jacket over top.

Hope you are all well!

September Joliebox - The Jolieblogger

Hey dolls!
Im so excited about this Months Joliebox! First off its London fashion week themed, I love all things fashion and had an amazing time at LFW myself so I thought it was a great theme to have, it also helps bridge the gap between beauty and fashion with a few pick-me-up products which can be easy to use on the go or when you're in a rush.

Also, Im this months Jolieblogger! Im so excited! I met up with the ever-so-lovely editor of the Joliemag, Grace, for a light lunch in mayfair not too long ago, where we chin-wagged about everything beauty & blogger related and so here is my interview in the magazine! Thank you again so much to all of the Joliebox team - I appreciate it SO much =]
I Haven't used all of the products yet so I cant give you detailed information but here are my initial thoughts on this months box...



Balmi - This reminded me straight away of the EOS lip balms - I picked some up in America because I loved the packaging and the scents but then decided I wasn't the biggest fan! Im defiantly up for trying this though, Im interested to see if its different atall and a big plus straight away is the smell, I love the blackcurrent scent.
I Love...mango face mask - I haven't tried this yet but it looks yummy (I'll try not to eat it), It does contain alot of alcohol though which isn't too good! Im a big lover of face masks however so i'll give it a go. (The coconut one looks amazing too)
Redken Straightening lotion - I have heard alot about Redken and I know its a high quality brand. i straighten my hair alot so this should definatly come in handy. + It smells gorgeous
Twistband - At first I thought this was a little odd, but after reading its little introduction on the Joliebox menu I see that its catch is that it dosent leave kinks in the hair after you have tied your hair up and then want to have it down straight again. I think they are very handy to have around and i'll be putting these to the test one day to see if they work!
Dr Bragi exfoliant - Im am very intrigued about this product. It looks as if the full size would be very expensive after having a read about what the ingredients contain and it is marine based. Theres not enough to be able to monitor a difference in the skin but i'd like to have a first impression of it.

I hope you liked this post and I want to say another big thank you to all my readers for being so supportive of my blog and for just being the kindest, loyal followers!

Also - If you would like to get your hands on this box you still can until the 30th september =]

Hey dolls,
I went up to west end with the boy for his birthday yesterday, We just went on a casual kind of shopping trip so We didn't dress up or anything. I threw on a grey tee and riding pants but I wanted to jazz the outfit up just slightly so I added a faux fur gilet.

Hope you are all well =]
