HEY DUDES! 

How are we all holding up today? I hope you're all feeling great and that your week has been successful. I am currently feeling pretty tired from exercising today, lol ye I have exercised. I am not one to exercise at all really, and I manage to eat so much processed crap without ballooning which I know seems bizarre. But as much as I love the easy lifestyle a high(ish)-metabolism creates, I feel like I need to start being a bit kinder to my body, so I've been working out recently in the hope my body will be thankful that I'm making a concerted effort to look after it. Anyway, in the essence of kindness, I've got a little bit of a charity themed post for ya'll today so please, grab a cuppa tea and enjoy this read. *grabs cuppa*

First and foremost, I must say I am digging this outfit. It's so me! Despite the fact this cardigan is super chunky and I will predominantly be wearing this over the winter months - something to look forward to - I have got to say, I think its great and the thickness is definitely not going to prevent me from wearing it at any opportunity. I'm especially loving the way it compliments my washed denim jeans as I think this colour combination works really well together. Also, as I am not a huge wearer of small, cropped tops, by adding this chunky knit I instantly feel a lot more confident about pulling off a cropped top because it leaves less flesh exposed. I am not typically someone who feels empowered by wearing very little, I am definitely more of a layering kinda gal. Comfort is so important to me when ensuring I feel great in an outfit, and I find being heavily exposed does not boost my confidence in any way. So this is knit is a great layering piece to add a bit of spice to a basic outfit!

Why do I look utterly concerned lmao


Charity shops. I suppose in a way, charity shops have a strange kind of stigma attached to them. Walking into a charity shop on the high street makes you feel as though you're super old, or super stingy. I don't really know to be honest, but there's something about charity shops that appears really off-putting and sort of daunting, particularly if you walk in alone. But in actual fact, we shouldn't fear the almighty charity shops, because they're great. Firstly, they're raising money that's going to incredible causes, and in the process, we are receiving recycled clothing for an inexpensive price - win win! Recycled clothing is awesome as in a society such as ours, we throw far too much away, so the opportunity to reuse and re-home a garment is essentially a good deed. To make this situ even better, we are giving money to charity, and receiving something back for ourselves...COULD IT GET BETTER? Yes. Yes it can. Not only do we get a cool piece of clothing with a bit of history, we also get it at a great price...£1 for this cardigan...ONE GREAT BRITISH POUND, HELL YEAH!




I hope this has been worthwhile of your time, and I'd love if next time you walk past a charity shop, you take a step inside and have a rummage. Who knows what hidden gems you might find.

PEACE AND LOVE X X X

Winter Coat Styling & The Most Important Aspects Of Life.

Evening everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far and are keeping warm and cosy in this awfully miserable British weather. I also expect that you have seen the John Lewis Christmas Advert for this year, or else you're a slight scrooge and complete disappointment. Watch it here before you continue to read this blog post, if you haven't already indulged in the festivity because it is wildlife-filled and exceeds the word cute.

American politics aside, I am hopeful that you have all had a great week working hard, and are being rewarded with a relaxing weekend so far. There's nothing quite like a chilled out weekend after a busy week. Lush.

This week I thought I would go all guns blazing with a wintery blog post, as I have been desperately waiting to start wearing this gorgeous coat. Although, I'll be wearing from now until probably April before we see sunshine agai…

HEY DUDES!

In less than a month I am tooting off to Spain for the festival Benicassim with George and some friends, so the next couple of posts are going to be pretty central to outfits relating to festival attire and what I've been wearing during my trip. So, this is the last 'normal' outfit I will be posting for a few weeks, yet to be honest, this is still relatively holiday appropriate. Hope you enjoy.

sorry about the awful brow game...lol

The focal point of this post is evidently this insane shirt by ASOS. When I first came across this shirt on the ASOS website, I absolutely fell in love with the back detailing of it, and also the sketchiness(?) that the print provides. I was also really digging the orange and pink vibes, alongside all the other colours proudly displayed on this piece. However, I must say when it arrived by the lovely DPD that knows me very well now (lol) it really didn't loo…

October 21st 2016. An evening of reflection.

Hello!
So, picture this: A slightly sleep deprived student perched on the step of the backdoor, coffee to hand. The sweet sound of Nick Mulvey's album First Mind complimenting the silence of an empty house. A cold, crisp evening in midst October and a wandering mind. I decided to write this post as an expression of reflection and contentment, a diversion from the usual materialistic posts on fashion items and styling attempts.

I would firstly just like to apologise for not posting in a few weeks, but as you may or may not know, I have just began my university adventure and despite the fact I have only been here three weeks, I feel as though its already been a lifetime of experiences and lessons learned.

First day of uni
University has honestly been the most insane journey so far: the almost sleepless nights; extreme consumption of alcohol and trying to find my way around university and the town I now call home. I have enjoyed every hungover moment and I simply feel like I needed …
