Wear | Life | Eats


Lately the weather has been real hit and miss, which is most of the time for London, but it's been rather extreme.  We've had scorching hot days and down right miserable rainy days.  Now that we are in June and hopefully entering the summer season I'm hoping for a lot more sunny days.  Until then, however, to get me through the 'in between' weather I have dug out my trusty leather jacket and have been throwing that on with almost every outfit.  The thing I love about leather jackets is that they go with literally anything.  You can wear it casual like I have below, with jeans and a t-shirt or you can take it with you on a night out to put on over a pretty dress or playsuit.  If the weather is a bit chillier then I can either wrap a scarf around it or wear a hoody underneath and layer it.  It's so versatile!  I got mine from Miss Selfridge and I love the zip detailing.


I feel like a broken record here but I am studying YET AGAIN.  I'm hoping this will be the last of my exams now as it's the final one so as long as I pass I FINALLY get to graduate!   Without boring you too much, the exam is on contract law and part of the Chartered Legal Executive (CILEx) qualification.  When I left school after my A-Levels I had no idea what I wanted to do and really couldn't be bothered with any more studying so didn't really consider uni too much.  A couple of years later, however, I decided to enroll in this course at my local college which my firm has funded and it's great because it's a hell of a lot more cheaper than doing a law degree, you can work and study part-time and you can still train to be a lawyer at the end of it.  For more info visit:


Now I'm definitely going to sound like a broken record here... 'Lauren's Health Kick' haha. So part of my health kick has been cooking the amazing courgetti.  This is basically spaghetti made out of courgettes.  Some also call it zoodles (zucchini noodles).  I make mine with a Julienne peeler which I bought for 99p on eBayer.  Then you just use it as you would a potatoe peeler or any other kind of peeler until all the courgette has turned into little spirally spaghetti-like pieces.  I then throw mine into a wok or frying pan with a little Fry Lite and then serve with vegetables, quorn, tofu or meat/fish if you wanted and then add a sauce.  It honestly tastes just like pasta.  Here is the pesto and tofu one I made below.  Yum!

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here .

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
