Hey baes! So, some of you may know that I’ve been a little bit poorly in the last couple of weeks so I’ve not been able to blog much or get any shoots done. I’ve been stuck in the house feeling pretty much uninspired, so I’ve decided to share my top 10 favourite blogger gals who I look to for some inspiration or just to have a lil browse on those chilled Sunday afternoons.
So here we are, in no particular order:
Summer is over and I definitely have the blues! Although Manchester is being kind and gifting us with that extra little bit of sunshine lately! I’m definitely a summer gal at heart but I can say I’m excited for big coats and layers. I’ll miss the pale denims, florals, flowing dresses and the occasional ugly sandal but it’s time to say goodbye and put them to the back of my wardrobe for next year. This summer has been a good’n! Festival season is always a winner because you get to sit in a field drinking beers and watching your favourite bands with your favourite people. I have also had amazing opportunities collaborating with brands and to watch my blog and followers grow so much in a short amount of time means a lot to me.
So, this is probably the last summery outfit you will see on my blog until the sunshine greets us with it’s presence again. Let’s start with the culottes. Culottes were massive this summer and they came in a variety of different styles from metallic pleats to light wash denim. These babies are originally from Zara but I found them on Everythingfivepounds.com for well, 5 pounds! I was so happy with this bargain as they are a good quality denim and they fit like a glove (I clearly haven’t used an iron again lolol) Pale denim goes very well with floral prints so I decided to pair them with a yellow floral high neck top which will also look cute under a mustard or brown Pinafore for Autumn/Winter!
Jacket – Boohoo | Top – Primark | Culottes – Zara | Bag – Primark | Shoes – New Look
The rust suede tassel jacket goes so well against the yellow florals. However, I have had the jacket for a while now and it’s definitely been worn to death. The tassels are a little tangled and matted so I think it’s time to ditch it and upgrade for a much warmer one for the winter. The bag I absolutely love! The suede patchwork gives you them 70’s feels and the colours will take me right through to Autumn too (p.s it’s a Primark bargain so grab it before it’s gone!). To finish off my look I wore a pair of white pumps because white shoes go with any summer outfit right?
Iyaaaaaa. Hope y’all good. Last Sunday I went to Leeds Fezzie so I thought I would show you some little snaps I took. Some pretty some not so pretty!! Oh my god, the mud. I’ve never seen anything like it! These pictures are definitely sugar coated. It was past my ankles at one point and me being me didn’t even put wellies on! My poor little Dr Martens are currently still in my back garden caked in mud! Anyhow, this didn’t stop us from having a good time! and how pretty do the flares look! We had a great time getting stuck in the mud, eating cheesy chips and watching our favourite bands even if it did feel like we were on a army training course at times haha! The Jack Rocks This Feeling tent was definitely the highlight of the festival and I said the same thing about it at YNOT Festival. It has new and upcoming bands playing right through the day into the night, the friendliest vibe and you can treat yourself to a cheeky JD and coke or 10 (JD honey and lemonade for me, cheers!)
Hey hey hey! I’ve created the slick back look using some products from L’Oreal Studio Pro Range. This look has been spotted on many celebs such as Gigi Hadi, Rihanna, Kendal Jenner, Kim K and more.. It’s so so easy to do so I’ve made a YouTube tutorial and step by step guide below, enjoy! 🙂
1. First apply the L’Oreal Studio Pro Sleek It Ultra Smoothing Cream to the hair to smooth it down and get rid of any strays.
2. Back comb the front of the hair then smooth back other with a comb.
3. Apply the L’Oreal Studio Pro Boost It Volume Hairspray onto the hair and comb through again.
5. Apply more hairspray then comb through one last time. Your done! How easy?

Hiiiii friends, strangers, lovers and animals! It’s nice to be back after having a little break from Instagram and blogging. Sometimes we get trapped into this circle of always trying to please people and feeling like we have to upload everything that’s happening in our lives (I’m guilty for this since I’ve become a blogger) but I can tell you I have never felt more refreshed after taking a 5 day break from social media. Last weekend I went to a festival with some lovely friends and I didn’t have any signal on my phone to check my Emails, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, WordPress and YouTube! That’s a hella lot of checking! But I was glad. Not being able to check my phone made me appreciate the present moment, something I haven’t done for a while. I was enjoying sitting around in the campsite without having my head stuck in my phone and being able to watch bands without filming the whole bloody gig! I returned home feeling a lot more positive and I still didn’t feel like I had to check social media straight away, I was just happy to see my dad AND my cat of course! However, there’s always a downside isn’t there? I’ve only gone and brought a chest infection back with me so whilst I’m bed bound not able to do anything else, I thought I would share these lovely shots with you taken by Arthur Yushi. You can check out some of his amazing work here.
This dress!! I fell in love as soon as I lay my eyes on it. I was sifting through depop looking at 60s mini dresses and I was so happy I found this vintage gem. It fits perfect and I can’t get enough of that contrast panel! Dreamy dreamy dreamy. You know when you have that one dress that your scared to wear because it’s so pretty? That was my situation with this dress. It was actually stuck in my wardrobe for at least a year and I kept saying to myself that I would save it for a special occasion. Anyway, that special occasion never happened so I thought I would do a little outfit shoot with it on! Yes, I’ve cropped the shoes out because I forgot to bring the right pair of shoes with me which meant I had to wear the ones that I already had on and they didn’t match with the dress but hey ho, the dress does all the talking!
Hope you enjoyed this post!
HOW TO CREATE SOFT TEXTURED WAVES
Iyaaaaa! Last week I was sent some lovely products to try from the new Studio Pro L’Oreal range. I will be writing a little review and step by step guide on how I have created textured waves using these products ANNNND I recorded my first lil YouTube video tutorial on how to do so too!! The lighting in the video is terrible, i’m sorry. I don’t have my own camera yet so I had film it on my phone! Buy hey ho, I hope you enjoy!
- Apply the L’Oreal Studio Pro Heat It Hot & Curl Spray onto towel dry hair and massage through
- Blow dry hair thoroughly making sure all the hair is dry.
- Section off hair. This varies depending on the thickness and length of the hair but I sectioned my hair into 3. Don’t worry about getting the sections neat we are wanting to create that messy bed head look.
- Take a piece of hair and place the straighteners below the root. Glide the straighteners down the hair whilst twisting them in the direction you want the curl.
- Do this until all the sections of hair are curled.
- Run fingers through the curls to loosen them up.
- Apply the L’Oreal Studio Pro Extra Strong Volume or L’Oreal Ultra Strong Fixing Hairspray all over the head whilst shaking fingers through the curls
The Heat It Hot & Curl spray definitely prepared my hair with the protection it needs when using heat. Also I found that my hair was easier to curl. However, I was a little disappointed with the hairsprays because I noticed my curls were starting to drop after around an hour but it did give my hair the volume that it needed.
Hope you enjoyed today’s post! Check out my YouTube video below and if there are any other tutorials you would like to see then please leave a comment 🙂
