An easy August exploring outfit | Style


A warm day in August meant that I got my milk bottle legs out and was proud. I will either get my legs out or arms out, and today was the perfect weather for this Topshop slip dress that I'd bought a few weeks ago. As I was desperate to wear it styling around the over the t-shirt trend I knew this day was the perfect chance for me to try it out. 


We went to Rye and Dungeness for a day of exploring, coffee and chill time in the sun along with quite a bit of photo taking. I wanted to be comfortable as the weather was lovely and warm and knew that mixing warm weather and lots of walking might mean you become a bit of a sweaty mess (ewww). The paisley top underneath the dress was a bargain buy (I think last year) from Topshop in the maternity section. Its lightweight and pretty breathable and adds a little bit of colour to my very monochrome wardrobe. I've worn the slip dress out on its own before with a lace bralet and thinks its great to have pieces like this in your collection that are so transitional, and can be used both day and night. I went for my boohoo lace up shoes because they're just cute and summery and crazy comfortable.

When it comes to accessories, I'm totally obsessed with these sunglasses from Shop Two Three that I picked up at the #BigBloggerExpo. They're far too cool for me, but I wear them regardless.  My jewellery is pretty much all Pandora and I rarely go out without my Daniel Wellington watch Tony bought me ages ago. You've probably already realised how totally into my Whistles backpack I am. Always use it, goes with everything, and I just love it. I really need one in a different colour to mix it up a bit but need to start saving!


Got any summer staple pieces you like to wear to feel comfortable in the warm weather?

  2. I recently bought a leopard print slip dress and I love wearing it with a mesh t shirt and adidas superstars. I'm really digging the tshirt under a dress trend :)

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…

Current Cruelty Free Skincare & Lip care Gang | AD

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…
