New Year's Resolutions

Happy New Year y'all!  I hope you all had a good night and weren't too hungover yesterday?!  I celebrated in Orlando (blog post coming soon!).  Be sure to follow my Instagram and Facebook for daily updates on my 3 week American adventure @wonky_lauren

Now for the resolutions.  I'm sure I did a post on this last year but you know what, I don't even want to look back on them in case I'm like 'damn, didn't stick to any of them!' so on with the New Year..

Find a balanced diet

May as well get the diet ones out the way first.  I don't want to lose weight but definitely eat healthier and more in balance.  I aim to do this by pinning yummy but healthy recipes on Pinterest and trying them out.  Which leads me to my next one..

Cook More

I don't cook proper meals enough because I'm not that good at cooking.  However, it's something I have really started to enjoy so maybe the more I do it the better I'll get?

Do more weights at the gym

At the moment I do a lot of cardio but I feel I need to up my weights a bit more in order to get muscle definition.  

Have a better nighttime routine

I'm terrible at going to bed on time and then struggle the next day with tiredness.  If I get into a routine then maybe I'll get my 8 hours!

Travel More

I used to travel a lot but recently I've just been back and forward from the UK to the US. I want to see more of Europe.  So far this year I have a trip planned to Greece but that's it. Any suggestions?

Learn Spanish

My boyfriend's family are Cuban and they all speak fluent Spanish and then there's me; not a word.  I took French, German, Russian and Turkish at school but not Spanish!  So I'd really like to learn.

So far, that's all I've got.  I don't want to set too many and then break them all!  I'd love to hear yours though?

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 . Not only does   Esprit   do runway trends for

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
