An outfit for a best friends wedding





To show appreciation and pure jealousy that I'm unable to attend London Fashion Week I thought I'd blog about more fashion related posts this week. Back in August I was lucky enough to watch my first ever friend I met at University get married, and finding the perfect outfit for that occasion took so many months Im not quite sure on the exact amount. I knew that I needed something comfortable to last the whole day, something I wouldn't get crazy hot in as August can go either way in the weather front. 

It wasn't until about a week before the wedding that I found this little co-ord in Zara and instantly fell in love with it and knew that is was formal enough, comfortable enough and something I'd lots of wear out of so needed it in my life. Being cream with burgundy and mustard detail it had the perfect amount of summer mixed with a tad of Autumn.

For accessories I chose a fascinator from Debenhams which was my first and found incredibly exciting. Having a lovely fashionista sister I was able to borrow some shoes from her as I'm not that much of a shoe person and the fact she works for Russell and Bromely means she has nice ones. I have a few pairs of trainers, boots and loafers but nothing really wedding like. And to keep my items together I turned to my trusty Mulberry Lily bag which will always have the key to my heart and is just perfect for any occasion. 

The day/weekend was perfect and my friend Lizzie looked absolutely stunning. The weather was perfect and my outfit lasted well through out the day and I kept the shoes on right up until 8pm (which I thinks good going). 

This gorgeous co-ord is still in Zara and would lovely at an Autumn wedding.

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

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips 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

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
