CRAFT: DIY KIMONO

DIY FLORAL KIMONO


With festival season upon us, I thought I would attempt a DIY that will be on top of everyone's packing list. This easy DIY Kimono would make the perfect cover up for those chillier evenings and is perfect with a pair of shorts and wellies or over a dress. So grab a coffee because it's a bit of a long one for me!

STYLE: ASOS SMOCK DRESS

ASOS SMOCK DRESS


We’ve all got that one item of clothing that just makes you feel good about yourself when you wear it. For me, it’s this ASOS smock dress that I brought last year. I love the daisy style crochet detailing that's all over the dress and because it was from the petite section, it just hangs in all the right places. I got 4 compliments in one day whilst wearing this dress, which just makes me love it even more!

BEAUTY: EVERYDAY BASE LAYER


My everyday base layer is not something that I change on a regular basis. Unlike all other make up  products, once I've found something that works well in my base layer I tend to stay quite loyal to it. However I have introduced a few new products lately so I thought I'd share with you my current routine.

STYLE: ASOS MIDI SKIRT

ASOS MIDI SKIRT

Do you ever fall in love with an outfit and then think when on earth am I going to wear that?! Thats exactly how I felt about this outfit until recently. You probably can't tell from the past few outfit posts but my typical weekend outfit consists of jeans and some kind of top. Comfort is key. But there is something to be said about feeling a bit more put together and thats exactly how I felt when wearing this outfit a couple of weeks ago.

CRAFT: DIY LACE UP BALLET PUMPS

DIY LACE UP BALLET PUMPS

I have seen so many pictures of black lace up flats like these on Instagram over the past couple of weeks so I dug out a pair of old black ballet pumps that I rarely wear and decided it was time for a DIY! I'm really happy with the result although I would say if I was to do it again I would make sure my D rings were the same width as the elastic used as I've found that they can twist a bit, but it's not a major problem. Have fun!

BEAUTY: CORAL MAKEUP EDIT

CORAL MAKEUP EDIT

Now that summer is upon us, its time to refresh your daily make up routine and start adding one of the seasons hottest hues - coral! You can incorporate coral into your make up routine in many ways but I've put together a little edit to give you some inspiration! And if there's anything I've learned from putting together this edit, it's that there is definitely a fine line between pink, coral and orange. Hopefully I haven't crossed that line to much.

STYLE: RIVER ISLAND TOTE BAG

RIVER ISLAND TOTE BAG

White and Tan

When it comes to jeans, it's not too often that I stray from a standard light/medium wash skinny jean (unless you saw my attempt to master the flare jean). But when I saw these white jeans I knew I had to have them. They are my first pair of Topshop Joni jeans and I can't get over how unbelievably comfortable they are. If it wasn't for the fact they get dirty so quickly (white jeans aren't exactly the smartest idea now are they), I would wear them every single day for a more summery twist to my normal look.

BEAUTY: DIY OAT FACE MASK

DIY OAT FACEMASK DUPE FOR LUSH OATIFIX

When it comes to skincare I'm pretty slack (you'll know just how slack if you've read my beauty crimes post, don't judge me!). But recently I've been trying to make a real effort and wanted to use a face mask to hydrate my dry skin. Therefore, I decided I wanted to try to recreate one of Lush's most loved fresh face mask 'Oatifix' and I'm pretty chuffed with the result!
