craving: an affordable handbag

26 February 2015

Since an incident which occurred last week where a strap snapped clean off my everyday bag I've been more desperate for a new, pretty and functional handbag than ever. I'm looking for one that won't give way and that can take the heat so my instant thought was River Island and then of course ASOS.

l'oreal professional steampod review

23 February 2015

I haven't been wearing my hair straight very often of late and that's mostly been down to the weather and longevity of my hair staying straight. Normally when I straighten my hair it bounces back up again within minutes of leaving the house, I've tried all sorts to prevent this from happening from hairspray to hair masks and extra special heat protection sprays nothing has worked in my favour. At least until now. I'm super excited about this product because it has allowed me to have a different hair style during colder months besides my usual natural messy waves.

birthday gift menswear haulin'

17 February 2015

It was Shaun's birthday at the beginning of the month and for some of his gifts I decided to take my own advice and go on a mens clothing binge at one of my go-to online shops, Spartoo. I bought a small selection of things that I knew Shaun would love and that he needed. Though he didn't know he needed them, for instance the leather belt he was wearing daily was looking quite worse for wear and I thought it was about time he had his own jogging bottoms so that he stopped borrowing mine!

craving: co-ords

16 February 2015

I'm becoming obsessed with co-ordinates again. Blacks, white and neutral beauties are adorning my fashion wishlists and 'if only' online shopping baskets. All of the above co-ord sets are from Missguided and Boohoo, well two are from Boohoo and the rest are MG which is no surprise really, I'm always scouring the new-in section for their co-ordinates and they always come through with gorgeous pieces in flattering cuts and on trend styles.


how I motivate myself

How to motivate yourself to workout - I've really had to think about this lately because I lost my way recently and completely stopped exercising at home. They say the hardest step is getting off the sofa and it's unreal how true that statement is.

I'm subscribed to so many shop email newsletters that it's hard to keep track but in recent weeks two stores have stood out to me; Miss Selfridge and River Island. So I thought I'd share some of my favourite picks along with trends and styles I'm loving at the moment.
