WISHFUL THINKING


It's that time again! The beginning of December and Christmas is looming so what better time to launch into some gift ideas... from me, to you. 
The ladies in your life deserve a special something and if you're not sure what you want for Christmas maybe it's the perfect time to add a few things to your wish list and send it over to your parents so they can stop continually nagging at you with 'what do you want for christmas?!'
L'Occitane have a huuuuuge selection of products so their Christmas gifts section is the perfect place to start. During the winter months your skin needs some TLC & products like this hand cream set are ideal for a stocking filler!  
Know someone loves a certain place? Or always wanted to travel somewhere? Travel guides are always an eye opener for some different and key places to go whilst visiting a new country! Cereal do a few different tour guides including this Copenhagen guide!
Make up palettes are always a good stocking filler, especially if they're Mac... *smirk emoji face*! This palette is part of the Ellie Goulding collaboration but, they have a huuuuuge amount of eye shadow and pre-made palette's available. 
As a lover of film photography, instant photos are definitely clawing their way back into the modern modern, technological world. If you read my 'instax series #1' post you'll have seen exactly how some of the Fujifilm Instax Mini images come out. The camera is the perfect gift for something a little different. One thing I love about this camera is how compact it is, making it super portable. It's nice to be able to hold images in your hand rather than jam packing a hard drive with snaps you'll most likely not look at again! Click here to shop instax & film!
Nail varnish, nail varnish and more nail varnish. Do I even need to explain further? 
So there we have it, just a few ideas for you! If you haven't already started Christmas shopping like me then hopefully this may help get the ball rolling... even if only ever so slightly!

Leopard print and frills over and over again pretty please? 

It's really no secret that I'm a huge sucker for a good old leopard print but, team it with this mega cute blouse and I'm in my element. I love love LOVE the lace detailing on this blouse; it's so 70's but with a modern 'kooples' twist! There's something about wearing a bold print with something so delicate and almost 'cute'. It gives it a rock 'n' roll edge don'tcha think?

I love wearing my leopard print with high waisted jeans. It's a regular occurrence (one that I'd actually love to get out of) and not exactly daring when it comes down to it but, it looks good and of course I feel good in it too. Win/win!

I've tried to include as much info as possible to make shopping black friday as easy as possible. Should I find anymore codes etc I'll post them on my twitter

Whenever i'm not exactly feeling inspired by an outfit, i'll always go for a printed shirt. They're the perfect staple to give a plain outfit something that little extraaaaa! 
2 - A N K L E  B O O T S

Time and time again you'll see ankle boots featured in  my blog looks and there's a perfect explanation for it. It's pretty simple really, they go with bloody EVERYTHING and always look fab. What more can a girl want? (other than a puppy, half of Selfridges etc etc)

If there's ever a better time to buy a new biker, it's now. A biker is the perfect staple in ANYBODY's wardrobe and I can honestly say I spend most of the year in leather jackets! Although they're pricey, they're investment pieces so why not save a little money on them whilst you can?!

Up until recently I was super hesitant with any blue jeans. Don't get me wrong i'm still uncertain every now and again but, that's because i've got stupidly used to living in black skinny jeans thanks to work. Both of the pairs above, I absolutely love and of course they're super easy to integrate into any wardrobe. I've tried to avoid skinny by going for a light wash mom jean or a boyfriend fit instead!

If any of you read this post you'd know that this time last year, leopard print wouldn't be anywhere near me. 2016 has opened my eyes to a few different things and leopard print is definitely one of them (see my instagram for proof). I'm still very picky with colours and tones but leopard print really does give you that extra little bit of SASS! If you're scared of going full leopard print, maybe go for a black and white version?
I hope this helps! You work hard so why not get yourself a little somethin' if you're using some of these offers to christmas shop!

After looking at some of my most recent content, i've come to the conclusion I want to start making my blog more personal. I want YOU to start to get to know the girl behind the blog, behind the camera and behind the writing.



The day I started my blog all I intended was to share my personal outfits, but now I want to start pushing both fashion and personal content. I want to show you all a much more personal side to me and, with that said, I thought what better way to get the ball rolling than by sharing some weird and wonderful facts about myself!

1 - I'm annoyingly indecisive
2 - My middle name is Lucy
3 - I really really really hate mayonnaise
4 - I have an unhealthy obsession with Ellie Goulding
5 - My least favourite feature is my teeth (hence why I never smile on photos)
6 - I'm 5ft 8" and wear size 5 or 6 shoes
7 - When I find a song I love, I listen to it on repeat!
8 - I have a brother
9 - Everyone seems to love ham... apart from me
10 - When I went on a family holiday to Rome, I fell in to the Louis Vuitton window display...


11 - Full fat over diet every time!
12 - I once died my hair ginger (and by ginger, i mean pretty much orange)
13 - I share my birthday with Elijah Wood
14 - 90% of the time I eat dairy free! But chocolate is a huge weakness
15 - Up until recently, I had 0 cousins
16 - The last couple of years I've become a super anxious person
17 - I regularly tag my friends in videos of cats.. and dogs... because I really like cats and dogs
18 - Eczema has taken away a huge chunk of my self confidence
19 - I hate the sound of people cracking joints!
20 - I love steak. Gimme that medium rare

Please let me know the sort of content you'd like to see from any personal posts! :)

This has to be one of my favourite outfits to date. i know it's super simple but I felt so good wearing it! I've never been one for long skirts but I've been eyeing up various pleated skirts for a while. 

This topshop number caught my eye because of the colour. I knew it'd be super easy to fit into my current wardrobe and for £32 it's an absolute steal! Chuck it on with a t-shirt and leather biker or with an embroided jumper (this is a personal fave) over the top; trust me it goes with bloody everything!
