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 :)

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

How To Read More & What I Read In May

*gifted items and affiliate links Hi mates, it's been a while!  So, I've had quite a few requests to create a blog post all about how I read so much. Don't get me wrong there are loads of people out there that read way more than me. But I average 4 books a month, however with lockdown in the UK I've been able to rack up my monthly average.  Let's just jump straight in to how I read as much as I do. 1 ~ Choose books you WANT to read This sounds super obvious, however I myself have been known to follow book trends and pick up a book because it's all over the gram, or because my favourite influencer has told me to read it. Doing so can result in books you just don't get in the flow of reading and books you don't want to actively pick up.  Know what genres you like to read. Know what authors you like and do some digging to make sure you pick wisely. Sometimes you will be disappointed with a book that you feel you should of enjoye

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
