The LBLD #PartyPose3







Dress - c/o BooHoo
Jacket - c/o Sister Saviour
Boots - Missguided
Collar - ASOS
Necklace - Missguided
Bag - eBay

Hey guys!
So this is my last post styling this BooHoo pleather dress! As I said before its actually on sale at the moment if you wanted to nab it! This time I went for a slightly more edgy look with a tailored and studded jacket from SisterSaviour and these badass heels! I think the sherling collar finishes this look off nicely as it contrasts with all the black that is going on!
Let me know what you think! =]

How close is it to christmas? Im SO excited!

Belt - Beyond Retro
Jacket - Missguided (On sale)
Faux fur collar - H&M

Hey dolls,
This is my second look styling this Pleather dress from Boohoo, This time I went for more of a glitzy look with one of my favourite pieces of the moment - My sequin blazer! I wore tights for a little extra warmth and I also thought these ears were the cutest thing! They would be the perfect touch for a themed party or just for a bit of fun =]
I played around with this look a little bit, adding a belt and a fur collar eg. - I love having fun with outfits whilst shooting! This dress is on sale on the Boohoo website right now if you wanted to get your hands on it, its very versatile and is actually really comfy!
One more look to come...look out for it very soon!

The NUDE Skincare






*NUDE Treatment oil  £58.00
NUDE Perfect clensing oil  £28.00
NUDE Celllar renewal serum  £64.00

I have been testing out these products for a few weeks now and I have really been enjoying them so I thought I would give them a little review and tell you guys what I think!

I believe NUDE is quite a new skincare line and I have seen their products in SpaceNK and also John Lewis recently - They are more on the 'high end' price wise, as you can see above! But are they worth it?

Treatment oil
This is possibly the most luxurious feeling oil I have used on my skin thus far, I use it overnight in place of my moisturiser and i'm sure its reminiscent of the Estee Lauder Advanced night repair which I have always wanted to try. 
This is rich in Omega oils too (3,6,7 & 9) which makes me feel that i'm doing alot of good for my skin and with the perception of 'natural' skincare changing alot these days with all the different products around, I feel this one genuinely gives my skin a bit of what it needs!
The morning after I use this my skin feels much plumper and has a natural glow about it which is always good! It makes my skin feel extra soft and dosent sit on the skin but sinks in well (even with my combo-oily skin). I personally think the price is pretty high! It would be a lovely present to someone or a great big treat to yourself! 

Perfect cleansing oil
I think the price of this product is much more reasonable and I also think this product works wonders! Things I always put into consideration when looking to purchase a new skincare product. 
It removes my eye and face makeup incredibly - Even waterproof makeup. It is light and gentle on the skin and is very easy to use. It comes with a pump so is very hygienic and I also love the packaging! If you are looking for a new cleansing oil I defiantly recommend this one =] (I actually enjoyed using it more than my Shu Uemura cleansing oil)

Cellular Renewal serum
Now this product is the highest in price out of the three and I will share what I can about it but I feel that I want to try it out for even longer before giving you a total/full review. I do really love this product so far, I use it morning and night, before my moisturiser. This serum sinks into the skin like no other! It disappears so fast so no time is wasted waiting around until you can apply your next cream/makeup product. The cap of this product and also the treatment oil has a built-in Pipette so you can squeeze out exactly how much product you want which is super-handy. As I said, I need to use this a little more to get a full idea but at the moment I think the price is a little too high personally!

Overall I think these are very nourishing, luxurious and effective products, defiantly worth a try - They made a noticeable difference to my skin after only using them for a short amount of time. I love the packaging and I also like that they are not too heavily scented. I think the only thing here is maybe the price point, the two treatments would defiantly be 'special' buys!

Let me know what you think of these, and if you have tried them or not! =]

*Ooh also if you wanted to check out even more skincare you can see the John Lewis skincare hub here

#Partypose
Dress - c/o Boohoo
Belt - Topshop
Heels - Boohoo
Croc clutch - ASOS
Watch - Daniel Wellington
Bracelet - Skychaser 
Faux fur gilet - F21

I am currently collaborating with Boohoo to bring you this little black dress, three ways! I will be styling it in two more ways soon. I personally love 'one item - different ways' posts/videos so I thought you might all like it too, I hope so!
This look is tailored for a christmas party of some kind and is the most simplistic way I would wear it. No worries if you want a look which is a little warmer, I'll defiantly be layering one of them up!

Hope you liked this post (Again i'm so sorry for the lighting, i've been a little ill recently so couldn't bring myself to do this outside in the cold! Also it gets dark so quickly now which is a bummer!)

The Metallic Skirt

Jacket - Topshop + DIY
Crop top - ASOS
Skirt - c/o LASHES
Boots - c/o Missguided
Necklace - H&M
Faux fur collar - eBay

Now I do really apologise for the lighting and quality of photos in this post, It was getting dark at the time but I really wanted to photograph this outfit!
I think this skirt from Lashes of London is such an awesome statement piece. Metallic and skater-style, two of my favourite things of the moment. Its such good quality and holds its shape really well, I also wore it in my last fashion video on my yt channel if you wanted to check it out there.

Hope you're all well,

The Missguided bloggers lookbook





Hey dolls!
I've had a bit of bloggers-block recently and I apologize for the lack of posts, Life has been getting a bit 'cray' and i'm also currently vlogging every day (vlogmas) incase any of you are interested!

The other week I had the amazing opportunity to take part in a Bloggers lookbook with Missguided at their head offices and studios in Manchester and above are some of the final images from the shoot! If you would like to see my feature on the site along with 4 of the loveliest & most stylish bloggers i've met Then please click here to go to the Missguided site.


Everybody's outfits, laid out ready for the shoot


We nibbled on strawberries and sipped on some bucks fizz whist we styled out outfits - yummy!

Here are my outfits laid out, I was still deciding on accessories

Kavita and I chatting while choosing what to wear, She is SO lovely! And her style is impeccable too!

I fell in love with these heels, so badass! They are also surprisingly comfortable

The styling rails - We could choose out 3 outfits from here - We were in heaven!

We then went downstairs to the Missguided kitchen and had the most beautifully laid out brunch I had seen - It looked way too good to eat!

Post-brunch with some trendy mags to flick through

The team at Missguided surprised us with customised hangers with our names on! We even got to take them home, mine is hanging proudly in my room!



I was shown this image during the day - They were watching my latest video down at the offices, crazy!

So as I mentioned before, I had the chance to meet and work with four other fashion bloggers Kavita, Lydia, Heather & Charlene and I was so excited for this! Everyone was SO friendly, genuine and we all had a good laugh together!
I took the taxi there from the station with Kavita and it was great to have a good old chin-wag with her! I have been smitten on her blog and style for months and months and I have to say she is such an awesome girl - She is so down-to-earth and is funny too!
I also got the train Back with Charlene who I got to know a little more too but we were so tired on the way back to London that we were nodding off on the train near the end haha!
{Ooh I also wanted to say - Im sure most of the items I wore on the shoot are available online now, If not they will be very soon}

I know i've spoken alot in this post already, But I want to say a huge thank you to Sara and everybody at Missguided for making this possible, Its feels surreal to be on the Missguided website and I'm so excited about it! I hope you guys like it too and can find it fun and interesting.

Haven't the girls got style!! ^_^
