July Obsessions

My favourites from the month of July!

Fashion Picks

July has been the month of sales (yay!) and I picked up some really good bargains from H&M and Zara in particular that I'd had my eye on.  My favourite purchases include these Zip boots from Zara that look identical to The Row ones.  I picked these up for £30 reduced from £60.  I also bought a gorgeous coat that I am going to save for winter (obviously).  It's super smart and was £130 reduced to £60.

In H&M I got some beautiful linen pieces.  I love their linen pieces as they're usually a linen mix which means they crease less and are also more affordable.  This dress was in the sale for £30 and it's so much nicer than I imagined it would be.  Would also be perfect on the beach as a coverup.

Entertainment Picks

I have been obsessed with Queer Eye recently and can't believe I only just started watching it!  We also watched the Eurovision Netflix film with Rachel McAdams and it was hilarious, would highly recommend.

Beauty Picks

I've really been into skincare since lockdown start.  I mean, I was always into skincare but I got better at it because I had more time and was wearing makeup a lot less.  The main item I'm loving in my skincare routine is a vitamin C serum.  It did break me out a little to start with but I persevered with it and now I use it every day.

Instagram Picks

I'm definitely more into stories at the moment.  Maybe because I have more time on my hands (if only) or maybe because they're just easier to watch than scrolling through.  My favourites are: inthefrow, michaelapodo, weworewhat, corriebromfield_ and daniaustin.

What were you obsessing over throughout July?

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
