Fashion Friday - Brighton #OOTD


A day trip to Brighton with Tony was certainly on the cards as soon as his day off was agreed, so off we went at 9am for a little day trip. Even though we had nothing planned for the time we were there, I just love walking around the town and the Laines. So many nice shops to go in and great places to eat that have vegan options and thought I would share with you my outfit from the day.

I'm not very outgoing when it comes to fashion, give me some purple eyeshadow and a crazy bright lip and I'm all for it however I'm quite bog standard with my style. I felt some what brave on this day and busted out a hat from H&M ages ago. This is the first time I've ever worn this hat out and actually loved the way it looked with my outfit. I knew it was going to be windy so my hair was put up and the hat was chucked on.

Layering is key! Especially in Brighton on a windy, chilly day for four layers it was. The top is from Whistles sale maybe last year of the year before, black and white silk t -shirt that is just so easy to wear and can be dressed up or down. I had a sneaky cardigan over that from good old M&S that was a dark grey to add some warmth. When COS have a sale I try to stay clear because it can be dangerous, however when shopping with my sister that goes out of the window. The Woolen cape was a steal at 50% off and really added something extra to my outfit. Lastly my pleather jacket from Warehouse. You can't go wrong and is water resistant, go with keeping out the wind, and lets face it, pleather jackets just look good!

Is there any girl out there that hasn't got a pair of Topshop jeans? These are the ripped Jamies and I love them, can't stop wearing them. So comfy and the rips give you a little bit of an edgy look. To go with the comfort of the jeans I busted out my trusty old white vans *that aren't that white anymore. Seemed the best bet because of all the walking we had planned to do. 

I had intended to buy lots however ended up with more vegan treats than clothes or make up *however a trip to SpaceNK did happen. So for the job of carrying a lot of food and my accient poloriud camera my large Longchamp bag was a great help.

Who else loves a day trip? Would you like to see more #ootd posts?

Much love. happy Friday!
xoxo

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…

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…

Hi, hey, how are ya?

It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know. 
So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that). 
Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips. 
Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products I use on a rotation and not all at the same time. My skin enjoys it when it swap aroun…
