The Cropped Knit









Jumper - Topshop £36
Riding pants - American Apparel £64
Bag - Zara £19.99
Boots - H&M (sale) £7
Chain - H&M £7.99 (I think)
Lips - MAC Russian Red £13


I do apologize for all the hand-in-hair poses, I did have other shots but when it came to the cut - these were my favourites!
Anywho this was very similar outfit to the one I wore yesterday, I went to Westfield to have a lil look around (Didn't pick up anything too exciting in the end) and throughout the day I was thinking that I really wanted to snap this look.

It's of course just a very simplistic one and another monochrome number but I bought this jumper recently from Topshop and really wanted to wear it asap! I have to say it is slightly hard to work with because it falls at my largest point which I should have realised before, but i'm going to try & just work with it!

Today I have been chilling as its Easter weekend, at the moment i'm cooking a recipe from my Lorraine Pascale cookbook (i'm getting old right? haha) 'Stove-top haddock with fennel seeds & basil'.

I'm going off on such a tangent so i'll leave it there, Hope you like this look and are having a lovely Easter!

Gold & Burgundy










Top - ROMWE*
Dress - H&M (Sale)
Bag - Zara


I was wondering for quite a while how to style this gorgeous gold embroidered top which is from ROMWE. I loved it on the website and have wanted to wear it out, I found it looks really nice with rich colours like this burgandy dress which I found in the sale the other day and so built the outfit around these two pieces.
I forget sometimes that you can transform a piece of clothing like a simple dress or top by layering it with another more interesting piece - building some depth and mixing textures!

Hope you are all well,

My Current Go-to Items



NYX TerraCotta blush
Ray-Bans
MAC Studio Fix powder
Nivea Vanilla & Macadamia Lip butter
Maybelline Babylips in Peach Kiss
YSL Parisienne
Loreal False lash Telescopic mascara
Warm vanilla sugar hand gel

Its recently been very cold & windy here in the UK but oddly enough its been quite bright so my sunnies have come in handy, I have a few lip conditioning products as i'm trying to nurse them back into good shape after the winter.
I'm head over heels for this MAC Powder, one of the best i've tried! So I always keep in on me - it also has a mirror and thats great for being on the go.
The blush and mascara are makeup items I have been trying out recently and so are always to hand. The hand gel is a handbag essential which smells amazing too and then the perfume is well-loved scent of mine and is great for this time of year as it is quite sweet but light.

There you have it! please let me know what items you have to have with you at the moment, i'd love to know!

Spring in my step











Dress - MOTEL*
Shaggy coat - ROMWE*
Bag - eBay
Heels - Zara
Necklace - H&M
Watch - Michael Kors
Lips - MAC Rebel


Products used under my lipstick & on legs*

Hey dolls!
Now I know in the UK it is still frostbite weather, but safely inside I put together an outfit with springtime in mind and it is definatly something I would wear for a night out or for dinner somewhere. (Tights included if the weather was as cold as in the last few days!)
I had the opportunity to pick out this stunningly bold, kaleidoscope-type pattern dress from MOTEL's website, they have such amazing pieces for this spring! Also to help me get into the spring spirit I got to try out these Palmers products, I have been a fan of Palmers from the age of about 10 when I was obsessed with their body moisturiser so it was lovely to try out a newer product!

This builds up a nice natural tan on the skin and I used it on my legs here, for me it helps give a little bit of glow to the skin (picks up better in person!)
There was also this lip balm to try and its very moisturising, the only thing I didn't like as much was the smell as its very pungent & sweet.

These heels, this dress and the cream have got me so geared up for spring! I cant wait till I can wear this outside without freezing over!

Hope you are all well,

Rimmel Kate Moss 02






Hey guys,
So I just wanted to confess a recent love of mine to you all - its something which has been hiding away in my makeup collection for months & months. At first I dismissed it thinking it was too bright for me and the wrong tone for my skin but the other week I tried it on again and...wowza!

Kate Moss for Rimmel lipstick in 02 (When it first came out the shade was 02 but i'm not sure if it might have changed now to 20) - It's a bright pink lasting finish lipstick which feels very moisturising on the lips and is comfortable to wear. It lasts well on me and dosent bleed into cracks on the lips or fade away leaving an ugly lip-rim effect (ew).
As I said, at first I pushed it to the side because over the years I have grown cautious of bright/fuschia types of pinks as they usually clash with my warm skin tone but this one I really do like! Perhaps it will spark a new love for bright pinks for me! Perfect as we're coming into spring.

Have any of you guys tried this shade? Let me know what you think!

The Floral Jumper



*Jumper - ROMWE
Riding pants - American Apparel
*Bag - Missguided
Boots - H&M
Glasses - Ray Bans
Watch - Michael Kors
Nails - MODELS OWN Concrete mixer
Lips - Revlon Smoked peach

Hey dolls,
I picked out this top from ROMWE recently and I really love it! Its similar to the Wildfox floral jumper which I had my eye on for a while but this one is much cheaper!
As Spring is close I thought I would bring a little brightness onto the blog and there would be so many ways to style this top but as its actually still quite chilly here I went for simple and practical bottoms.
In the spring I will definatly pair this jumper with skirts!

Hope you are all well & incase you guys might be interested I filmed a video with Pixiwoo which is up on my channel (and i'm in a makeup video on theirs!)
They are such lovely and inspirational women and It was like a dream to film with them! Check it out here if you like =]
