I promise I’ve not been hiding. The key is within planning and organisation. I have been devoting my time to a key plan for blog posts and innovation. I’m up to date with all the fresh content to soon appear for debut.

Today I thought I’d share one of my favourite coats in spotlight. I love styling this in so many ways but for me simplicity is essential. So I thought I’d share it with you guys. With a simple outfit of full black the navy blue is caught with the eye which is the exact vibe I love to go for.

Molly Overcoat – Your Shores.  A long boyfriend overcoat is a staple this A/W if I say so myself. They’re everywhere on the high street in the deep burgundy and light grey shade. You can style them my layering and even with the simplest of items. I love how mine fits, the length is not too long and it’s not to oversized either.

Short Polo-Neck Top – H&M. I love the style of this polo-neck as it’s not your average polo-neck as its much more thinner. It’s so easy to style with any pair of jeans as well as a nice pair of trousers.

Skinny High Waist Jeans – New Look.  It doesn’t get more standard than a black high waist pair of jeans. However, I love the fit of these I didn’t really think New Look jeans would be this satisfying.

Suede Chelsea Boots – Asos.  I purchased these boots a couple of months ago and honestly I love styling them with all different outfits. The ones linked aren’t the exact ones I have but they’re the closest I could find.

What is your favourite outerwear this A/W? Comment below.

This is a post I’ve been waiting to publish for a long time! I’m so excited ahhhhh. As you may or may not know I’m all for coats and jackets as this is what I love to see in my wardrobe. During the summer me and Jess picked out our favourite trends for outerwear so I thought I’d share these picks with you guys.

Fur Parka in Khaki and Pink – Shores. Parkas have always been a top trend during the colder months whether that’s a khaki one, camo or even a pink hooded one. They are seen on the likes of Zoella, Louisa Johnson and even Kylie Jenner. I loved modelling this pink hooded parka as it is just a piece essential for the wardrobe. I guess it’s bold but in a subtle way.

Embroidered Souvenir Jacket – Shores.  This has to be my favourite of all the outerwear I just cannot stop wearing it. The embroidery on the jacket is so detailed and stands out on the black. I do love the material which is silky and so lightweight. Bomber jackets are so trendy easy to throw on and perfect to layer with!

Pink Bomber Jacket with Patches – Shores.  Another bomber jacket which I’ve also been loving is this pale pink one, which fair enough isn’t for everyone. However patch work and patches has been going crazy on denim jackets, jeans and even bags. Adding that hint of quirky. I do love how spontaneous this jacket is.

Lightweight Duster Coat – Shores.  Finally another one of my favourites has to be this duster coat. I love how lightweight it is you can add a scarf and a knitted jumper on under as well as a beanie and bam it’s the perfect winter outfit. I love layering this and adding colours to the black.

I cannot wait to do an autumn look book post including some of these fabulous pieces – so do keep an eye out!

October Favourites|2016♥

img_1066 img_1067  img_1069 img_1070 img_1071 img_1072

As the leaves fall from trees October has sadly come to an end. It’s my favourite month so it’s sad to see it pass by so quickly. However, that doesn’t undermine that some of the more exciting months are coming closer ahhh. I don’t know about you but I’m loving these dark nights – more excuses to get cosy and drown yourself in mini marshmallows.

Today’s post is my October favourites this has probably one of the hardest I’ve had to do I have over 25 things to narrow to 6. Crazy right?

Hugo Boss Orange Fragrance For Her – I got this as a gift and honestly since I’ve got given it I haven’t stopped spritzing it because the scent isn’t strong but it’s the right amount of strong. I get so many compliments and always get asked what the scent is. Plus it’s an orange scent and I love it!!!

*Nails Inc (Mayfair Lane) Gel Effect Polish –  I got given this in a goody bag and I’ve worn the colour a couple of times and it’s so pretty it matches my phone and is subtle. This is what I prefer in a nail varnish too as it doesn’t chip easily.

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip (Tulle) – I wear this at least 3 times a week as it is such an autumnal colour and it adds so much to an outfit I think and honestly I just think this is a colour everyone needs in their lip draw.

*Soap & Glory Matte Lipstick (Super Nude)  –  I kind of forgot about this but I’ve had a couple of important places to go and I’ve just worn it to not stand out as much. Honestly I love how it feels on my lips because normal matte lipsticks feel so bad on my lips. However, this is creamy but still looks matte.

*Soap & Glory Righteous Butter Body Wash –  I received this when I went to see the Soap and Glory tour bus and I think it’s something new they’ve bought out. I love their righteous butter so I knew I’d be a fan. I love this I’ve used it multiple times and it’s so smoothing on the skin and I do recommend it if you love righteous butter.

*MTV Staying Alive Ultra Facial Cream – Kiehls. Finally Kiehls they do make me very happy, my love for this facial cream grows day by day. I wear this every morning and honestly I’m loving how my skin feels – highly recommend this to anyone with any type of skin!

Last Friday I got invited to Selfridges VIP launch event of their new contemporary studio at The Manchester Exchange store. On arrival we were greeted and told to up to floor 3 were the studio had been launched! Trembling with excitement, it was like walking into a party pink and white balloons everywhere, DJ flowing with the tunes and the most creative drinks with sparklers coming out of them. I mean could it get any better?? YES it did indeed.

The studio it self has been transformed completely I do love it, it was a bit dark because the event was held in the evening but it didn’t stop the fact of us seeing how amazing the set up was as well as the brands. There is such a variety from Kenzo, Moschino and Aaape by Bape. They even have Topshop, which I love all my favourite places all in one! I mean it can’t get any easier for us shopaholics!

There was lots of other bloggers and the event and it was lovely to meet everyone! Another awesome aspect of the event was a GIF booth I mean it was so cool  loved making one!

So if you are down in Manchester or even live in Manchester do go down and take a look a their new studio I promise you won’t be disappointed its filled with bundles of fashion trends!

Eid | Nude Make Up+Outfit♥

img_20160912_210530imag4315 imag4319 snapchat-2227202557025883726 snapchat-8230401057983739020

I’ve been mounted with college work and a never ending list of things needing to be done ugh. But I’m back and I’m better. Starting back at college is always so time consuming so bear with whilst I get back into routine! After a lovely Eid spent with my family I thought I’d share with you my outfit and the make-up look I decided to go for.

L’Oreal Infallible Foundation – Superdrug. I think it’s pointless putting what foundation I use because you guys already know. I just apply this with a damp beauty blender as I think it applies better rather than using a brush.

Makeup Revolution Sculpt & Contour Kit – Superdrug. To contour I used the bronzer and applied it lightly as I didn’t want a dark bronzy look just a subtle one. This added definition to my face as well as structure. Then I used the highlighter to highlight the high points on my face.

BarryM Lip Paint – Superdrug. For my lips I then used this lip paint in the shade ‘Everythings Rosie 164’ which I haven’t used in a while which has a matte finished and complimented my outfit perfectly.

Smoky Grey Down To Earth Eyeshadow Palette – The Body Shop. I used the charcoal grey shade in my lower lash line to add a subtle effect as well as the pink shade in my crease just to get it one balanced colour.

Archery Brow Putty Dip And Brush – Soap&Glory. For my brows I kept them looking natural by using this dip brow just to add a little definition and dimension to the shape.

L’Oreal Paris Superliner Superstar Eyeliner – Boots. For my winged eyeliner I used pen with I do recommend as it is super thin and easy to get the precision of the wing exactly how you want it.

L’Oreal Colour Riche Lip Couture – Superdrug. To line my lips this complimented the lip paint as well as my outfit and lasted all day! Plus this as to be one of my all time favourite shades.

Nearly Nude Pointed Nails – Primark. To finish up my whole look I bought these nails from Primark which are so inexpensive and were a perfect match to my outfit and lasted without chipping!

Dramatic False Lashes – Primark. Normally, I’m not a fan of false lashes but these looked so pretty I had to pick them up. Once I had put them on they lasted all day and didn’t even irritate my eyes, I was super impressed!

Lastly, my outfit was a nude pink which I loved, it was a mesh lace material and I cannot wait to wear it again!

May Favourites|2016♥

IMAG3566 IMAG3576 IMAG3575

Its finally the end of May which I actually couldn’t be any happier about as this means its coming towards the end to exams. I will officially be stress free which means I’ll be a happy bunny as there’s no more staying in and revising its all about adventures and fun outdoors.

However, it means its time to share with you what I’ve been loving this month. It was quite easy to pick this months as its been the same things that I’ve been using throughout the whole month.

Peanut Butter M&Ms – Amazon. The first favourite has to be my new favourite of 2016. I blame Hemisha for this as seriously she was nibbling on these in college one morning, I tried one and I totally fell in love. So I went out and bought some and now I have a stash in my bedroom. I mean everyone needs to try these they’re so nice like you will thank me!

Nivea Post Shave Balm – Boots. I wanted to see what the hype was about so I purchased it but I just had the chance to try it as a primer. My foundation went on so easily and smoothly. It also made my foundation stay on and there was no creasing, which also happens to me so this is a win win!

Palmer’s Olive Butter Formula – Feel Unique. This is such a subtle and absorbing moisturizer  and especially on my skin as its really dry this brought some life in to it by rehydrating it for as long as 25hrs.

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Lip Balm – Boots. I’ve needed a new lip balm as I was sick of the strawberry scented and flavoured ones and seriously this is literally so handy to stick in your handbag it tastes lovely and leaves your lips feeling smooth and fresh.

Matte Liquid Lipstick – Maybeline. I mentioned this in a post last month since then I haven’t stopped wearing this I mean this has to be my holy-grail colour on my lips I love it so much. The application is easy and the look of it is flawless I mean its just a 2 in 1 really can’t go wrong!

Grey Acid Wash Ripped Jeans – Jailbird. Finally, I’ve rediscovered my ripped jeans and honestly I couldn’t be happier as they’re so easy to style and look super trendy. I’m going to definitely have to invest in a couple more pairs.
