Jersey // Topshop (similar one here)
Disco Pants // Missguided
Converse // Schuh
Choker // Ebay

So, this weather is REALLY horrible ain't it? I'm not sure if a mesh t-shirt is the best idea in this weather, but hey ho, I like it. I got this t-shirt in the almighty Topshop sale (online) and I said I was going to save it for the summer but, as I saw it hanging in my wardrobe, it kept screaming "wearrrrr meeeeeeee!!!", so I did. But its been put away at the back of my wardrobe so I don't over wear it by the time summer comes around (I have a tendancy to do that). 
I've been loving choker recently and I found this little gem on ebay. Good ol' ebay. 

Thoughts on the outfit?

Ello ello ello, okay so I know its been a while...ok maybe a bit more than a while but I'm back and ready to keep up with this blog and make 2014 KICK ASS. 2013 hasn't been the best of years to say the least, but i'm all about moving forward and living life with no regrets! So, I thought I'd start this year off with my personal fave, a good ol' outfit of the day.

Mesh Top // Primark
Skirt // Boohoo
Necklace // Topshop
Converse // Schuh
Jacket // New Look

so, sometimes I get in those moods where I just want to wear all black and other days I want to wear cute pastel colours, today I chose black. black is the new black after all, right? as I don't really like wearing completely all black I threw on this g o r g e jacket from new look to add a bit of colour. Anyone think of fresh prince of bel air when they look at this jacket? I've never been a huge bomber jacket fan BUT when I spotted this jacket I just grabbed it because how can I resist it? like really?

July Faves 2013

Vaseline and Cocoa Butter has been used in my family since the birth of baby Jesus. Since Vaseline decided to bring out a cocoa butter version of their famous creams, I knew that I had to jump on that wave. I CAN-NOT stress how much I LOVE this product. I don't like using different products on my skin, as I have been a eczema sufferer since I was born and its only in the past few months that I've actually been able to use 'normal' creams and lotions, but I'm still a bit reluctant to putting any cream on my skin, until I started using this cream last summer. Its really good for when you get straight out of the shower, because I get horrible dry skin like 10 secs after I leave the shower, so I have to moisturise literally straight away, then sit in my towel for like 25 hours after that (I know I'm not the only person that does that!). Another thing I love about this cream is that you literally only need a little bit to cover a lot of your body and its not sticky at all, so its great for summer..well its great for any time of the year

*get it from Superdrug here and from Boots here*

so during summer my hair gets so dry and dead and because I'm giving my hair a 'weave break', it's out all the time and well i don't know about you but, (I'm feeling 22) I need to keep my hair moisturised  or it'll just be all itchy and ain't nobody got time fo' that. This spray works wonders to my cray cray hair and keeps it moistened and shiny. Whether you have weave, braids, twists, or your natural hair, it keeps it looking and feeling fresh

*get it from Paks here*
(they sell this in most afro/caribbean a.k.a black people hair shops)

okay so nobody wants be be THAT GIRL, who gets all sticky and smelly during the hot weather...well I know I don't. so I decided to pick up a few of these body sprays. The one I usually use from boots has been...discontinued *cries* but I'm hoping they bring out another one similar. But this body spray does the job quite nicely and I've been spraying the crap out of a range of these sprays all summer

*get it from Superdrug here*
(couldn't find it on the Boots website, but it's in store)

so when I first got this lip butter I wasn't too keeno beano on it, because my lips are just weird and my bottom lip is more moisturised than my top lip...(yeah I don't know either), so I just usually stick to good ol' Vaseline but this summer I've picked up my lip butter again and its just been WERKING. I really do love it for summer, I think its because I don't have the whole chapped lips thing that tries to happen during winter, so for right now I'm loving this lip butter and it smells SO GOOD I literally wanna eat it

*get it from Superdrug here and Boots here*

oh the famous peach melba. I've been hearing about this peach melba since it came out and I only recently got it because its such a cute summer colour. This summer I've been loving my peaches, light pink and nude nails (although right now as I'm typing my nails are a dark red, but shh). The summer weather makes me wanna have either bare or really light colours on my nails and I've been lurrrrrrrving this peach melba because its literally the perfect summer colour. 

*get it from Superdrug here and Boots here*
(I couldn't actually find this colour on the Boots website, but it's definitely in stores)

Imagine Dragons - Radioactive // Icona Pop ft Chari XCX - I Love It // Zedd - Clarity (brillz remix) // Miley Cyrus - We Can't Stop - #willpower (album) // Demi Lovato - Demi (album) // Fuse Odg - Antenna // Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - The Heist (album)

so, clearly I love my chart music. I'm always listening to Capital FM or Kiss FM and usually I just get addicted to the songs they play on there. These are the songs & albums I've just seen loving this July and playing on repeat, there's obviously A LOT more but these are the main ones I think. 
Demi's new album is basically perfection and just continues with his BANG-ERS on this new album. I love my afrobeats and have been for years so when I heard 'Antenna' on capital radio, I literally had to do a double take and I thought it was my iPod, but nope, it was the radio and I'm literally so happy that FINALLY afro beats are becoming more and more known.
I've also been listening to the whole of Frank Ocean - Channel Orange every night, like its my job.  

thoughts on my july faves? whats your july/general summer faves?

Dress - Goddiva // Shoes - Ebay // Bow Tie - Topshop// Bag - Vintage (aka, used to be my mums in the pre-historic times)// Flannel Shirt - Portobello Market

so recently I was contacted by the laaaaaavly people at Red Hot Pr who work alongside Goddiva. I've been to a couple to Goddiva events before (Louise Thompson & Josie Gibson) and the events have always been so good and clothes on the website are just uhh-maze-zing and super affordable. I chose this dress because I really don't own a lot of dresses and I lurrrrve me some denim. I don't think denim will EVER go out of fashion..well's denim. Its such a statement piece and I so versatile. I think this dress is just super cute and I seriously love the fact that it has pockets. I could easily wear this dress in the colder weather, with some tights, ankle boots and chunky cardi. I wore my jelly shoes because 1. I'm just completely in love with jelly shoes at the moment and 2. it just WERKS. Jelly shoes can go with so many outfits and I would definitely recommend getting a every colour ;-) 

you can look at all the new Goddiva denim range here and while you're there look at just all the Goddiva stuff here

HoMedics and Salter Event

oh hello AGAIN, so i went to another event this week, and this one was for the showcase of products from HoMedic's and Salter. It was interesting to go to an event that wasn't just about fashion and/or beauty. 
HoMedics are a brand that specialises in health and wellness products. They have a range of products from handheld massagers to humidifers. (i'll be reviewing the handheld massager in a later post!) I'm all for trying to relax after stressful days/weeks/centuries and products that will help me to relax is definately something I need. Some of the beauty products are designed by no other than the be-a-UTIFUL Elle Macpherson. ((i'm crying just thinking about her beauty)) If these products will make me look like her, then SIGN.ME.UP. all in all, the HoMedics range has some really uhh-maze products and these newer products are going to be in various shops such is good ol' Boots. 

the HoMedic goodies are here

Salter are a homewares brand founded by a guy called Richard Salter, which guessed it...homewares! One day (hopefully soon) I will move out and i'm gonna be needing some house essentials and Salter are definatly a brand I can trust to give me value for my money and I'm all about finding a bargain. It was amazing to meet the designer of a range of scales (the scales that show you the effects of your junk eating and lack of exercise...yeah those scales). It's just so refreshing to see a product and meet the person who came up with that idea and now its like a real-life thing. I'm not sure if i'm making sense, but it makes sense in my head ok.

the Salter goodies are here

I had a REALLY good time at this event, from the amazing gin cocktails to the massage chair session. We all got given a goody bag with some products from the HoMedics and Salter ranges and I've always been using the wireless speaker everyday!



Krystof Strozyna Signature Event

so recently, I went to the launch of Krystof Stroyna's signature collection. I was really excited to attend because 1. I had not been to an event in what felt like donkey years and 2. his designs look uhh-maze. So me and my friend got there just a liiiiiiiiiiittle bit late, but there was still a lot of people there and my eyes were just drawn to these gorge pieces. The bright colours and unique symmetry of the pieces really caught my eye and just look so simple, but still so chic. My fave item was the yellow cropped top. I can just imagine wearing some disco pant shorts and chunky boots for a night out look and, some high-waisted structured trousers and flats for a super cute daytime look. I really enjoyed my evening at the showcase and I hope to be going to loadsssssss more! 
*also the bubbly when down a treat!*

have a lil look at his designs here
