Touchdown Londoooooooon!  

I try my best to visit London as often as I can, however living up north and over 3 hours away has its down sides!  

Nevertheless I was in London not long ago and enjoyed my time there, managed to meet the beaut Niga Ghafur (yes internet friends are real) ... also not to mention I was there on the best 3 days, the weather was just perfect!  

Walking around Oxford Street, it was super busy and absolutely boiling. However no matter how warm it is, I always think it's important to carry a jacket around, we really can't predict this British weather.

Double denim was actually an unintentional one, I literally picked up the first jacket I saw and walked out the hotel room, it took me a while to realize, but I was pleased with myself because I don't think it looked too bad haha! 

This combo features a denim jacket by JALC and distressed denim trousers by ZARA, paired with a simple white tee and black heeled boots from Topshop!

Oversized fits are my favourite, as far as wearing fitted clothes goes ... skinny jeans is the closet I get! 

I recently fell in love with Pull & Bear, although I'd heard of them before I never really checked them out properly! Scrolling through their site, this sweatshirt caught my eye, it's so quirky and the quote on the back keeps me motivated, I love it.

Also from Pull & Bear was the white pumps with a caramel sole, I've been after a pair of shoes like these, they're such a comfortable fit! I decided to pair this with trousers from New Look Men's. These are such a such good quality, just at £10, my size and the last on the sale rack. Lucky me! 

You can shop my look below, hope you enjoy!

ASOS X NIKE CORTEZ | VOGUEWONDERS

I'm super excited to be featuring my first ever collaboration with ASOS on the blog. Since starting the blog two years ago, I never would have imagined working with such a huge and highly respected brand. I'm so grateful! 

In a new campaign, i was lucky enough to be selected for the ASOS X NIKE Cortez project in which I was gifted with the coolest old school Nike trainers! I styled them with a Puma sweatshirt, regular black skinny jeans and a mandarin collar shirt by La Moda, from ASOS. 

Thank you to everyone who has supported the blog so far. It means a lot!

Balmi Lip Balm Review 

So recently I got hold of a Balmi lip Balm. I have heard so many people talk about this product and how good it is, I thought I’d test it out myself.

There are many different smells and flavours, I got the blackcurrant one, and it smells absolutely amazing!

In all seriousness, I don’t think I’ve come across a lip balm like this. There’s something very different about this and I can’t quite get what it is. It’s just different... Maybe it’s the, vitamin E, soothing Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil it contains which is why it feels so good!

I’d say this leaves your lips moisturised and super soft for a good few hours, and you can top it up whenever you want too. Another thing I love about this is the little cone shape and tub it comes in, it's so cute! Easy enough to fit your pocket so you can carry it around with you when ever you as well

Balmi is available at Boots, and they are on offer at the moment! So why not get yourself one at just £2.99 http://www.boots.com/en/Balmi-Cube-Lip-Balm-Blackcurrant_1539598/

Touch of colour ft a Regal Rose

As if it's June already! It's crazy how fast this year is going, however summertime is fast approaching and it's my favourite time of year! You probably know I love my dark colours & like to keep it pretty simple. Today's look of the day features a white shirt by Vera Moda which I bought online from ASOS. I love this, it's collarless and has two large pockets on each side. I paired the shirt with a two tone black jacket from SkinnieBelle and basic black skinny jeans from Primark.

Completing the look I wore the most gorgeous white leather sandals from Schuh. I have to admit...I'm not really a sandal person, but these were a purchase I had to make. Just look at them, they're so perfect for this season and you can wear it with almost anything, whether it's shorts, a skirt or dress!

Finally to accessorize, I carried a mustard colour shoulder bag by Jane Shilton and wore the Balance Antique Silver Gemstone Ring' and the 'Eleana Sun Stars Above Knuckle Ring' both from Regal Rose, available at http://www.regalrose.co.uk/ along with some other beautiful jewellery which is definitely worth checking out!

Spring look FT Over My Body

So, you may realise this post is different to my usual posts, instead of styling a piece I thought I'd create a mini set featuring my favourite brands at the moment! OMB

Keeping it clean and simple I put together Minkpink Badlands jeans from Over My body, pairing it with a Monki Tonia shirt. To accessorize I matched it with a bag by Naked Vice from Over My Body. I absolutely love this! It's so different and so cool. it definitely has a great edge to it, I seriously need to get my hands on one soon!

jewellery wise I chose to add a Komono Winston watch from Over My Body and a Alona Jonelle Bracelet also from Over My Body. I love the rustiness of this, and how stylish it is. It can be worn with anything.

Over my body is one of my favourite companies at the moment, from so many Australian, US and unique British brands to chose from, you cant go wrong!

Winter look featuring Lulus London

The New Year is just around the corner! It's been a great one, so I thought I'd finish 2014 with another winter look. IMG_1562

As the winter sales hit stores, I got some great deals! Continuing to keep warm this season I wore some knit joggers from ZARA. These were selling at £17.99, They come in 4 different colours, one being grey, and others; black, navy and camel.

IMG_1513I paired the joggers with a white thick jumper from Topshop which was reduced to £25. This features a zip on each side of the jumper so you can style it how you want!

IMG_1563Finishing the look I wore steady ankle boots from schuh & a long green coat from Jigsaw. This I purchased a while ago however similar coats will be available on ASOS.
