Mink and Stone blogger challenge


Monday morning I woke up to an email from the lovelies over at @blogginggals asking 
whether I would be interested in joining in with a little fashion blogger challenge, and when I saw that it was dealing with necklaces..... I was already there!

The Mink and Stone website allows you to create your own necklaces from scratch, choosing the length, clasp and beads. So heres my design....... (click on the picture to go to the website and check out my wordy description).


I tend to wear a lot of black,khaki and grey as we get into winter so adding a striking necklace is something I like to do to make my outfit looks a bit more interesting. The choice of beads on the website is a little overwhelming as there are so many, but the process of making it was really fun and could easily get addictive. The glass cluster beads are my fav by far and if I could do another would love a necklace full of those! 

The challenge was to create a necklace for an outfit, and this is the outfit I had in mind whilst creating the necklace. As its very dark and dull and quite punky I really wanted something to add a pop of colour. I loved including the spikes and grey/metal looking beads to compliment the edginess of the long jumper and leather.


High neck on the jumper so when the necklace sits on top of it the colour and the silver will really stand out.
My camera helper was not on form... but here is the jumper, really long and cosy but teamed with the jacket its got an edge. All I have on below are black jeans and black boots.

Overall an awesome website, easy to get around and easy to create your design. I had a slight problem with creating an account but they were great and emailed back instantly with help and advice. Now its a waiting game to see what bloggers have won the challenge and get to see their creations in the flesh. If I win I will do another post showing it off with my outfit and my normal camera helper.

Go check out Mink and Stone

Thanks for reading and keep your fingers crossed for me!

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.

mucho love

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…
