Outfit Of The Day

FASHION

Hello lovelies!

Today I have another Outfit of the Day post for you and it’s the first one of the New Year! I hope you’ve all had an amazing 2018 so far and are excited to see what the rest of the year will bring.

I had a lovely shopping day in Chester and had a little photoshoot. Chester has so many cute locations and I absolutely loved shooting photos around here. There are lots of secret, hidden away streets and staircases that makes it so hard to choose, but I’m so so happy with the location that we went with.

Jumper: I am in love with this colour. There’s something so special about a bright, emerald green and it’s THE softest thing. The fit is baggy and slightly cropped at the front and long at the back. I added a necklace which compliments the v neck so well.

This jumper is from H&M and I’ll put a link to it here

Jeans: I live in these jeans. Ripped jeans are such an essential I think, they instantly add edge to an outfit. These are black and skinny with ripped knees. They look so great with a pair of boots.

The jeans I’m wearing are Joni jeans from Topshop. They are no longer in store but I found an alternative that I’ll link here

Boots: I got these boots recently as a birthday present and they’re so cool! They’re black, suede style with a rounded heel. My favourite part about these is the star detail on the heel.

Rucksack: I also got this amazing backpack for my birthday. I love metallic style accessories so much. This is in a rose gold and compliments any outfit I put it with.

Amazing Birthday Adventure

LIFE

Hello lovelies!

So today is a very exciting post that I can’t wait to share with you! This is going to be a long one so grab a brew and get cosy!

For my 23rd birthday I went to Edinburgh for a few days and it was honestly one of the best trips I’ve ever been on. I’d never been to Edinburgh before but i’d seen lots of videos from when other people have visited and I knew it was somewhere I had to go. I just normally have a little day out for my birthday but I really fancied doing something more special. I was so glad we booked three nights as it is a good 3 hour train journey from where I live and I wanted to have plenty of time there to explore!

When we were on the train on the way there I was so happy that the weather was so still. My birthday is in January and I was so worried about it being snowing but we got the best luck! It was a little chilly when we were there but I think walking around in a snuggly coat and scarf fit into the whole vibe of Edinburgh.

When we arrived I knew I instantly loved this place. We stepped out of the train station, onto the street and everything felt so exciting and fresh. It’s crazy how alive I feel when I visit a city. It’s filled with all different kinds of people, all doing their own thing with determination and I love it.

We checked into our hotel, went up to our room and oh my gosh! The view was incredible! We’d been put in a room overlooking Edinburgh Castle which I honestly didn’t expect. It was so amazing to wake up every morning, open the curtains and just see the calm, beautiful view.

After we had a relax after travelling, we decided to have a little walk around just so we could check out restaurants and sights. This worked great because then we had an idea of where everything was, and if we saw somewhere we liked the look of, we knew where it would be. I was so shocked by how many restaurants there were. They were all so cute and decorated with fairy lights. We also saw so many incredible buildings that were all lit up and looked so magical.

We went for some food at Pizza Hut before making our way back to the hotel, enjoying all the amazing sights.

The next day was my birthday!! I still can’t believe i’m 23, I totally don’t feel it at all ha ha. I decided to just bring my birthday cards with me and open my presents once I got back home. I loved them all so much and put them in the hotel room in front of the incredible view. Then it was time to get a Starbucks (one of many ;)) then check out the shops. I noticed that Edinburgh had a Lush and got so excited because all of their Valentine’s Day range was in! I bought THE cutest bath bomb which was called “Love Boat”. I used it in my bath when i got home and it felt like I was floating in sherbert :O Definitely go and check it out!

We decided to have a wander up to the Old Town part of Edinburgh where we ended up outside Edinburgh Castle. The view was absolutely incredible. You could see pretty much all of Edinburgh and it had such a lovely vibe. Everyone was just having fun, taking photos, enjoying the view and I felt so lucky to be there. The view looked so much like a movie set it was that beautiful!

As it got into the evening we decided to try this cute little Italian Restaurant for dinner which was so lovely. I had some cheesy garlic bread and a gorgeous sausage pasta dish. After this we were really craving some cake so we made a Starbucks stop where I got a raspberry cheesecake muffin which I counted as a birthday cake! I also got a hot chocolate and oh my gosh it was so nice!

Screenshot_20180115-223816Screenshot_20180115-223915Screenshot_20180115-223728Screenshot_20180115-223603Screenshot_20180115-215239

One thing I knew I definitely wanted to do while we were here was to see “The Greatest Showman. ” I saw sooo many tweets saying how incredible it was so I gave the trailer a watch and oh my gosh…as soon as I heard snippets from the songs I had a good feeling! I’m really into Mouln Rouge and this had a similar vibe. As soon as it started and I heard the first song, I was hooked. I could write a whole blog post about this film it was that amazing. It had everything. It had humour, magic, romance, dark parts and the most incredible songs I have ever heard. I enjoyed every single one and i’m obsessed! The way it was shot was so well thought out and was so perfectly done to make every scene so much better. I won’t ruin what happens just in case you haven’t seen it but definitely go and watch it if you can, you will love it. After we left the cinema and were walking back to the hotel, I was in a daze and couldn’t stop thinking about this film.

On our last full day in Edinburgh we decided to properly see the sights and do some exploring. We walked up to the old town and had breakfast in Saint Giles Café Bar. It was so cute! The staff were brilliant and the food was amazing. I had a ham and cheese croissant, a latte and freshly squeezed orange. If you’re visiting Edinburgh, definitely check this place out.

Screenshot_20180115-221541IMG_20180113_180503_913Screenshot_20180115-222028Screenshot_20180115-222338Screenshot_20180115-221929Screenshot_20180115-222532

We then walked EVERYWHERE. I had no idea how much there was to see but round every corner was another architectural street with something new. We had a little photoshoot and it was so much fun. Another thing about Edinburgh is although it’s so big it’s pretty easy to find your way around. I think because no two streets look the same you can easily find your way back to the start. I also love that it has all the shops and restaurants you need but then it has history and amazing sights. It really does have everything you could want! Everyone you met was so sweet and polite too which makes an already amazing trip even better.

This is up there with one of the best trips I’ve ever been on and was such a great way to celebrate my birthday!

Phew okay….I know this was a long one but I was so excited to tell you about it and if you’ve been thinking of visiting Edinburgh but you’re not sure, hopefully this post has helped!

2017 Blog Wrap Up

LIFE

Hello lovelies!

How is 2017 nearly over already!? It’s crazy how fast it’s gone!

I wanted to do a little blog wrap up post just saying some thank yous, how I’ve been finding blogging and things like that!

So I started my blog at the end of July and I don’t know why I didn’t start one sooner! It’s such a lovely little hobby and is somewhere where I can just express myself and tell you what i’m lovin’ and what I’ve been up to. I found that I was doing this on my Instagram anyway and having a blog is so much better as you can just write more and get creative. It’s also great to look back on as quite a lot of my posts are from fun days/events and I love reading them back. I was a little hesitant to even start one but now I don’t know where i’d be without it.

Throughout the months of having my blog I can’t believe how much it’s grown! I remember how excited I was when I got my first 10 followers and there are now over 300 of you!! That is crazy! I honestly didn’t event think it would get to this stage but thank you so much to all of you, it means so much that you take time out to read my posts. Replying to comments is my favourite thing as I feel like we’re all on the same page everyone is so lovely.

I just want to give a little shoutout to some bloggers who have been so supportive ever since I started my blog, you’re all amazing! I’ll put a link to their blogs below so definitely go and check them out:

alexaceza.com

thehappydiary.com

uestifamilywoodworks.com

livingthelumberglife.wordpress.com

beautyandthebookshelves.com

chloeluye.wordpress.com

This first few months of blogging has been amazing and i’m going to continue working hard of my posts and putting everything I can into it! I’m so excited for what the future brings for my blog and i’m so glad you’re all here for the journey.

I did do a post back in November called “My Top Moments of 2017” if you want to check that out. I go more in details about my best moments from this year 🙂

I’ll see you in 2018 with more exciting posts!

Nocturnal Dreams False Nails

BEAUTY

Hello lovelies!

So in today’s post I thought i’d show you the nails that I have at the moment. Most of the time I paint my nails but when i’m feeling lazy or fancy having nails that are a little more special, I love wearing false nails. When I first saw these I was obsessed! Elegant Touch are one of favourite nail brands and they have so many gorgeous designs that I never see anywhere else.

These nails are limited edition and they are called “Nocturnal Dreams.” I actually bought these back in October and did a Halloween look post inspired by them because I loved them so much. I’m a huge fan of anything star and space themed and also this colour is gorgeous! They’re a royal blue iridescent style and  shine all shades of blue when the light catches them.

I’ve been wearing these nails since Chrstmas Eve and they’ve lasted so well. I aldo think that these would be perfect to wear for New Years if you have any parties to go to. These are still in Superdrug so definitely check these out if you want some gorgeous false nails.

The Perfect Moon & Star Earrings

FASHION

Hello lovelies!

So today i wanted to do a little post about these earrings that i bought recently. It has been such a mission to find the right type! If you’ve been following my blog for a while then you’ll know how much i love moon, star and space themed jewelley and clothes. I don’t know why but i’m just drawn to anything in this theme.

201712191209475817

For a while i was on the hunt for a pair of moon and star earrings but i could never find a pair which were exactly what i wanted. I wanted them to be quite a unique design but wearable and easy to put in when i’m in a rush. I also wanted them to be gold as i like this more than silver or rose gold. In all the high street shops there was never a pair like this so i decided to try online which i don’t do very often as i’m always a little worried about whether they’ll look completely different when i receive them to how they were shown in the photo.

I went into Not On The High Street and started to have a look round. I typed in moon and star jewellery and honestly i loved everything! I wanted to buy so much more because all the designs were exactly what i was looking for. They were all unique and so affordable.

This pair was one that i was drawn to straight away, they looked exactly my style. I was a little worried about how they would sit on my ears as i don’t have the biggest lobes but i decided to go for it. They arrived super quick and in the cutest little bag!! Ahh i loved it!

2017121937913313020171219-12722077320171219-105509429

There was a card inside that said “Shine On” in gold text which was adorable. It’s such a small touch but it makes what you’re buying feel so special. I tried them in and knew they were perfect. They sat on my ears so well and i was so excited. I’ve been wearing these everday and they go with whatever i wear. I should just say too, there are different colours to choose from. I went for the black ones but they did have green and peach too which were also gorgeous. I also think these earrings are amazing as they could be worn casually or with a dress in the evening, great for Christmas!

 

I really hope you enjoyed his post and if you’re into this type of jewellery style, definitely check out Not On The High Street as they have some amazing, unique things which would be perfect for Christmas presents!

Thank you so much to everyone that takes time out to read my posts, it means the world.  Hit the little follow button if you’d like to see more from me and i’ll see you in my next one.
