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!

Dreamland For Spring/Summer 2019 - Press Trip

It's that time of year again, DREAMLAND is open for business! I get so many questions about Margate and DREAMLAND in particular, so why not do another post for you. 

As a South Kent girl through and through, this place has a special place in my heart. Full of nostalgia, and pride of what it's like now. 
You may or may know that I've actually created two blog posts already from DREAMLAND, but wanted to give you a little update on it. I also played around with my camera and a new setting so it's a bit of experimenting too haha. 
Shall we?

Lets get the disclaimer out the way if you didn't catch it in the top right corner. I was invited to the park on this day as press, so received a free wristband, food and drink tokens. I wasn't asked to create a blog post in any way, but I always like to as you guys like it and its such a fun place to photograph. 

Now on to DREAMLAND:
I can't describe how much fun I always have when I visit this place. On this day pictured, it was…

So here i am, back after what seems a life time. Since my last post so much has gone on and happened in my life that my blog didn't even cross my mind. Some of the issues were personal and boyfriend related which has been hard but i feel I'm back to myself again :)

I would like to say a massive thank you to all of you that have stuck around and have continued to follow me even though i have been absent for a while.

So my outfit is just me on a Saturday after teaching Ballet and decided to go shopping and spend money i don't have!!! A haul post will be up in the next couple of days I PROMISE.

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

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 pretty amazing vegetable when it comes to yo…
