My Halloween Look

Hi Guys,

Halloween is one oy favourite holidays of the year as I love all things creepy and I like to think of myself a little edgy at times.

This year I dressed up as Caroline from the vampire diaries. She’s organised, confident, a great group leader, sassy, smart, gorgeous and occasionally edgy! I can try and pull that off right?!

BoHo Queen Jewelry Review

Hi Guys,

Boho Queen jewelry recently got in touch with me offering me a statement necklace of my choice available from their very cute and unique website. Boho Queen makes unique necklaces, accessories, and swimwear all at an affordable price whilst still offering great quality.

They say that their website offers products fit for a queen – that sounds good to me?!


I picked out the Simple Shells necklace from their website as I thought it would be perfect for the many beach holidays that I have coming up both this year and next year!

IMG_0062

I purchased this necklace and received it three days later bubble wrapped! There was no cost for shipping and I found the price of the necklace to be very affordable.

I am actually an ambassador for Boho Queen so I did receive a discount but even at its original price I find the necklace to be very good quality for its cost!

I would highly recommend that you go check out Boho Queens website. It’s the perfect place to find some high quality yet affordable accessories and swimwear. Whether you’re jetting off on a winter holiday or in need of some new statement necklaces Boho Queen is the perfect place!

Let me know what you think of the shell necklace and what your favorite pieces from boho Queens site are?

See you next Sunday at 6pm!

Affordable Style Wish List

Hi Guys,

I may be getting way too ahead of myself but I’m so excited for Spring/Summer and the new trends that are starting to appear in the shops and online.

I have been browsing online and in the stores looking at some of the new pieces in stores for Spring and Summer and I thought it would be nice to share my favourite pieces with you guys.

Spring Summer Wishlist;

ASOS;

Pink skater mac coat

I brought a black mac similar to this one from ASOS about 8 months ago and I love it! I wear the mac whenever I can and it goes with so many outfits so when I saw this I knew that I would definitely love it.

White shirt dress

I don’t actually own very many shirt dresses but I love how you can dress up or dress down a shirt dress. I spotted this gorgeous shirt dress on Asos and I loved the frilly details and perfect length of it. I will definitely be wearing this shirt dress a lot this spring and summer.

Leopard print sneakers

Recently I’ve found a love for leopard print. I recently purchased a leopard print clutch and pumps. I saw these trainers and instantly fell in love thinking of how many outfits they could go with in my wardrobe.

Skinny Dip hearts iPhone 7 case 

Valentine’s day is almost upon us and I thought that this phone case would be such a cute and festive statement for both your iPhone and outfit at the moment. I mean who doesn’t love glitter and hearts? This case is just too cute and I need it!

BooHoo;

Oversized Frill Top

I love this top. It’s something a bit different for me and I think It would look so cute with the distressed blue jeans, the pink leather jacket and a pair of nude heels.

The material is very thin making this top perfect for Spring and Summer.

Rosie Faux Leather Biker Jacket

This jacket is just gorgeous! I love my black leather jacket and I wear it loads but a pale pink one?! I think this jacket was made for me. It’s easy to wear for all seasons with all kinds of different outfits.

I would probably wear this jacket with blue distressed jeans, a white tee and white trainers for Spring and Summer!

Tall Helsa Mid Rise Distressed Jeans 

These jeans are gorgeous for spring and summer. They rips can make an outfit appear less girly and edgier and the colour makes them easy to pair with a variety of outfits and styles.

I’m in need of a pair of new jeans for more casual outfits and these are perfect to add a little something different and edgier to a casual outfit.

Forever 21;

Sequined denim jacket

Denim jackets can really pull together a spring summer outfit but I really love this denim jacket from Forever 21. The sequined roses are so cute and they add a something little extra to an outfit.

Faux Leather Satchel

White bags are perfect for spring/summer and I really love this satchel. You have two options for carrying the bag and it’s an open bag (With a zip if you want the security) which makes it easy to throw all you ‘essentials’ into your handbag.

Leslie Patchwork Dress

This dress is just gorgeous. It’s so unique and I think it would look gorgeous with a plain denim jacket and some nude heels or sandals. It’s so cute and unique!


I really hope you enjoyed this blog post! 

There are so many gorgeous pieces for Spring and Summer starting to come into the stores. 

Make sure to follow my Instagram where I will be using stories to show you what I get up too behind the screen. 

See you soon,
