Blue Pleats and an update

Image
Hi! Back in February I wrote a post about how I wasn't going to make any resolutions this year, instead I was going to make a list of things that I would like to do over the year, if I achieve them great, if I didn't I'm not going to worry at all. The main thing was to start making a few small changes to my lifestyle and try and create a better work/life balance. What do the pictures have to do with this? Well, I think they pretty much sum up how I feel at the moment. I've made a few changes with regards to handling my stress and they also remind me of a great weekend we had recently. Of course, I also wanted show this fab outfit I picked up on a late night trip to my favourite grocery store! Both items are from Sainsbury's in the sale, I absolutely adore them. The jumper is perfect for now, although it's sunny during the day sometimes the wind has been a bit chilly so a thin jumper is the answer for those days. I teamed it with this navy pleated skirt

Style | Fashion Show MK

Hi A couple of weeks I was kindly invited to the Fashion Show MK which was held at the beautiful Critchley Hall in Newport Pagnell. There was a whole host of designers from mainstream to local such as Krisp Clothing, Wheel & Thread, Boutique Cholpon, Daisy & Co London, MadFX Clothing and James Virgo Bow Ties. I arrived around 7.00pm, went inside and managed to get a few pictures of the venue, which is gorgeous (definitely a potential wedding venue) before it got too busy. There was a DJ and also live singing from the lovely Holly Bills, her voice was incredible and definitely had me swaying in my seat! I feel like fashion shows are a good way to give me new and fresh inspiration for my wardrobe, I find it very easy to get stuck in my comfort zone and not try different colour combinations but, since the show, I have found myself steering away from my current blacks, grey and whites and looking for more pieces to add to my wardrobe for Spring! So here are some of

Style | Random Denim

Hi! I saw the lovely Dani Vanier  rocking the double denim look recently. I feel like it's one of those trends or looks that either works or it doesn't but she pulled it off with her usual effortless chic style. I knew I wanted to give it a go when I bought a denim shirt from New Look recently. It was a really random purchase, I wasn't going shopping for anything (like I always do!) but ended up bringing this shirt and a dress home with me. I ended up really liking how it looked with my jeggings so, after we went shopping, we stopped by home quickly, picked up the camera and went to my favourite spot to take a few pictures! Still in love with these shoes! Shirt - New Look (sale) Tee - ASOS Jeggings - New Look (sale) Shoes - New Look (no longer available) Bag - Tory Burch What do you think of double denim?

Style | SS17 at intuMK - A visit to Rush Hair

Image
Hi!, Last week I wrote about my evening with intu for their SS 17 event. You can read the post here. Tonight is all about my fourth task. Rush hair is now situated in intu MK. I'm always keen to find hairdressers that can do afro hair, so this was an ideal opportunity to find out more and to also do my task! As you walk in there is a wall full of products for every type of hair, a part of me wanted to pick up everything and be nosy but I resisted! The salon is located upstairs. I had no idea what to expect so when I got to the last step I was pleasantly surprised! How gorgeous is this salon, it's actually the nicest one I've ever been in. It's so neat, clean and had a luxurious feel to it. The salon is open late in the evenings as well so it's ideal for an after work cut or blow dry. Anyway, back to the task. We had to chat to a member of the team about must have hair products which would keep our locks glossy and shiny all se

Lifestyle | Black, Nike and White

Hi! I went for something casual but smart and comfortable for the drive up to Birmingham as I knew we would be going out for lunch once we'd got there. I bought this blazer from New Look a few weeks ago specifically for work. I'm still not sure if it's smart enough so, for the moment, I'm keeping it for weekend use. I'm also wearing my oversized white tee from ASOS, jeggings from Sainsburys and the latest addition to my trainer collection. I always get mine from ASOS as they have really nice ones on sale. Oh and it was perfect for travelling in, I slept for the entire journey!
