A coat dilemma: Will it be khaki or camel?



I have a dilema on my hands.... is it going to be camel or khaki? Theres something about these two colours that I love in the winter. Camel can look really classy and smart where as I see khaki as smart but relaxed. So I need to make a decision and wondered if you lovely followers could help?

Khloe premium coat- £69.99 from Missguided - Having seen a picture of the gorgeous Sarah Ashcroft over at 'That Pommie Girl' wearing this obviously I instantly wanted it. It looked so luxe, soft, smart and just dreamy in the pictures. Its definitely on the upper end of my price range but feel that this would be a good investment? When thinking of possible outfits I can see this being quite versatile and could be worn with dress and heels and also jeans and trainers. I have one problem, I'm only 5ft5inch so will it be too long?

Khaki textured coat- £22 from New Look - I've wanted a duster coat for a while and really like them because of the thin material that you are able to really layer underneath for the colder days. This duster has a certain smart look to it also which I feel is because of the lapells. I like the fact it has pockets and can be dressed up and down. Being on the lower end of my price range it seems like a bargain, but should I be going for something made of a thicker material?

Camel oversized coat- £80 from River Island - Very similar to the Missguided coat however has that boyfriend oversized fit. Not 100% sure if that shape would flatter me as I think it could drown me, but I still love it. It's a lighter camel colour and has a button which I probably wouldn't do up but I like the way it breaks up the colour. It's quite smart looking  and could be worn during the day for a casual outfit and evening for smart. It costs more than the Missguided though!!!

The laden showroom mac- £115 from ASOS -This coat is totally different to the others I have seen and the most expensive! The fabric looks so luxe and soft and the way the coat falls is just lovely. I feel it's more on the casual side but could be a fun challenge to smarten it up. Its a beautiful colour and love the 3/4 length sleeves. 

The camel coat trend is certainly going to be seen everywhere but should I be different and go for a khaki coat instead?

Please comment and let me know what coat you like best!

Much love, happy Sunday!

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

How To Read More & What I Read In May

*gifted items and affiliate links Hi mates, it's been a while!  So, I've had quite a few requests to create a blog post all about how I read so much. Don't get me wrong there are loads of people out there that read way more than me. But I average 4 books a month, however with lockdown in the UK I've been able to rack up my monthly average.  Let's just jump straight in to how I read as much as I do. 1 ~ Choose books you WANT to read This sounds super obvious, however I myself have been known to follow book trends and pick up a book because it's all over the gram, or because my favourite influencer has told me to read it. Doing so can result in books you just don't get in the flow of reading and books you don't want to actively pick up.  Know what genres you like to read. Know what authors you like and do some digging to make sure you pick wisely. Sometimes you will be disappointed with a book that you feel you should of enjoye

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
