OOTD: Palm Print

It's number four from my wishlist! Did you spot it?! I'm loving palm print at the minute and monochrome always has a place in my wardrobe. For a trip to the shops I couldn't not wear my new fave!

OOTD - Mixing Up The Pastels

It's been so sunny recently and I've been loving wearing lighter colours more than usual. This outfit was worn for an afternoon shopping with my Mum! I wanted to keep it casual.

Schwarzkopf Essence ULTÎME Crystal Shine Finishing Oil

I had a hair cut last week and me being me, I decided that I needed something new to apply to my hair, post-styling, to give it that "just-outta-the-salon" feel every time. I figured that a serum or hair oil would be my best bet, as creams tend to make my hair feel greasy really quickly.

 I'd seen some adverts on TV regarding Claudia Schiffer and hair (I must have been paying some real attention...) and as I saw Schwarzkopf Essence ULTÎME Crystal Shine Finishing Oil, I made the link that this is what I'd been hearing about.

BarryM Cosmetics - Silk Collection

You don't have to look far to see what a huge fan on pastels I am. When my mum called me upstairs a couple of weeks ago to show me her recent purchases I did not expect to find what is now possibly my favourite BarryM range...the Silk Collection

New Look Wishlist: Tops

Over the past few years I feel that New Look have really upped their game. I find myself walking into one of their stores and lusting after almost everything in sight. It's become a real favourite.

Quinoderm Antibacterial Facewash Review

I have never suffered from acne but boil-esque spots often became a problem throughout my teens. In fact, they sometimes do now after spouts of unhealthy eating or leaving my make up on overnight. Quinoderm 5% Acne Cream was my saviour in these cases, so when I saw that Quinoderm wanted bloggers to review their antibacterial facewash*, I jumped at the chance.

ghd Pastel Collection

ghd release beautiful collections and limited editions rather often, but when I saw that they were releasing a pastel collection I was eeeeever so slightly overwhelmed. Pastel is my favourite trend yet. I find myself accessorising everything I wear with my mint green mini satchel and pepperminty nail polish.

Company Style Blogger Awards Nomination

My blogging journey started on the 5th June 2013. I started my blog after reading so many for such a long time and falling in love with the fashion and beauty community. I started out with beauty reviews and favourites etc, but soon after found my feet in fashion posts. From OOTDs to trend previews, I love writing fashion posts as they're just another way of expressing myself over the web, showing you a little more of me. 

When I heard about the Company Style Blogger Awards I got very excited. To think that it was possible to achieve an award for doing something I love after having only done it for a year? That's sooooo cool. 

Advice For My Younger Self: Fashion, Beauty & Lifestyle

Everyone looks back at old photos and cringes, right?! Today was spent majorly procrastinating and some of that procrastination involved browsing my iPhoto and revisiting the "good" old days. I thought I'd give my younger self some advice. I love seeing these kind of posts and who doesn't love stalking people's photos to see how people have changed over the years?! Or is that just me? *cringes*

Quit the cringey poses.
This goes for just about every photo you will see in this post. I was so keen with the selfies, even more so than I am now and if you follow my instagram you'll see what an achievement that must be. 

Stop layering your hair.
I was the queen of layering my hair. The shorter, the better. it got to the point that my hair was virtually a bob with long, extension-like strands hanging below. They didn't even flow into each other, just random short bits. Gaaaaaaah! Also the fringe - I got one random short bit of hair cut in and claimed it was a fringe. See proof below.

Boohoo's Share A Style Secret Collaboration

If you're been reading this blog for a while you'll have noticed that I am a huge fan of Boohoo.com! I was over the moon when then they told me how much they'd enjoyed my wishlist and CoppaFeel! posts and even more so when they asked if I'd like to be part of their next infographic; a collaboration with bloggers around a specific topic. This time round it's Share A Style Secret!
