Lover of monochrome | Style


On the countdown to Christmas I feel obliged to wear a bright red lip frequently and start swapping my flat white, to a Christmassy special. Around this time of year is when my constant sporting of monochrome outfits comes in handy, as they really let bright red lippy pop. Some might argue my following statement but, for me, believe it or not, is quite a Christmassy outfit!


Lets start with the huge (amazing) specs on my face. Glasses just add a little quirkiness to an an outfit don't they, and recon if I had worn my contacts, the overall look would be so different. I really love adding lots of different elements into an outfit such as this. I've thrown a red lip, fluffy jumper, layering, gold detail, a pom pom and a little touch of smart with my shoes of choice all together. I never do it on purpose, and never think 'oh lets mix that texture with that'. I just grab what I want and go with it. 

I'm really into subtle jewllery at the moment and loving my small dainty studs from Jewellery Box. As they're so small I leave them in day after day. And, being sterling silver, they don't aggravate my ears at all (which I know some people suffer with). The other accessory to this outfit which is actually really new, is the Pom Pom. Superdrug were having a deal that when you buy three beauty products, you get a free Pom Pom (on trend or what) so naturally this became the thing I had to do that day and actually really like it with this get up.



Deets as follows: Glasses | Missoni at Specsavers, Lipstick |  Makeup Revolution, Dress | Primark, Jumper | Topshop, Bag | Russell & Bromley, Pom Pom | Superdrug, Tights | Primark, Shoes | Topshop, Coffee | Costa, Studs | Jewellery Box

If you really like the dress, then get down to your nearest Primark asap as it was in the sale for £5!

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
