Wider Thinking and New Ideas….

Hello my lovelies!

Sorry I have been away soooooo long but I have taken time away from my blog to think of a perfect restructure of my blog as I was not 100% sure on the way I was running it before!

Therefore after researching and looking at many of my favourite bloggers I have decided the perfect way to blog for me….

My old blogging style consisted of me providing daily updates about my life and my style as I always showed my OOTD at the end of each post… HOWEVER I want my blog to be a fashion & Beauty blog only therefore I have decided to stop these daily posts and instead I will post my OOTD everyday on my instagram – lilywrist.

Therefore you’ll all be wondering what I am actually going to post on here… Well I will be posting weekly updates about my favourite trends each season in my trend tab and I will also be posting Beauty updates as often as possible on my favourite beauty products and all those new beauty products I will be treating myself too every time I finish one of my uni assignments!!

Post Glastonbury blues..

Sorry for the lack of posts this week but I’m finally back from Glastonbury and am back to having unlimited electricity and phone charge 😂

As promised, I am going to share my Glastonbury experience with you all… It may have taken 13 hours to get in because of the torrential amount of mud due to weeks of rain before the event but it was SO worth every minute of that 13 hour queue.

I truly can’t find a way to put my weekend into words therefore I am just going to share photos with you all…


The atmosphere and the views were just unreal…


But my favourite moment of the weekend was watching Coldplay shut down the festival with their breathtaking performance. It is up there with one of the best things I’ve ever seen and I’m not a massive Coldplay fan but honestly they were incredible… From bringing on a BeeGee to the creativity of the performance, everything was just on point and the perfect way to send off Glastonbury 2016 and you can watch them here.


I am currently sitting on my sofa feeling very depressed about life as I’d do anything to be back in that muddy field! I highly recommend anyone to attend Glastonbury if you ever have the chance to as you will not be disappointed!!

GLASTONBURYYYYYYY

I know I haven’t posted in a few days but I have been a very busy bee over the weekend catching up with friends before I disappear for three weeks and getting ready for the first of my trips over the next 3 weeks which is….. GLASTOOOOO!!


The car is all packed and ready for the three and a half hour journey early in the morning 😁😁😁, just eating my last bowl of fruit before my burger van binge! When I get back on Monday I will make sure I share all my festival styles with you as well as my Glastonbury experience! Hopefully it’s not too much of a washout! 

Wednesday wander

As you all know I absolutely love the city life up at uni and cannot wait to permanently live in a city.

But as summer starts this Friday, I have to readjust to the quiet countryside life in my hometown for 4 months, therefore there is no better way to embrace the countryside but to go on a brisk walk with my little Mobes.

A walk is also the perfect revision break as you get a good dose of fresh air to re-stimulate the brain as I have my final exam on Friday and therefore will be travelling back up to uni tomorrow!

For my walk I opted for a halter-neck crop with black jeans and showcourt trainers to provide a basic but stylish look.

Lacoste showcourt, Adidas Original Superstar and Stan Smiths are my favourite trainers this season as they literally go with any outfit, from trousers to skirts and therefore are a simple way to complete any look.
Get the look:

  • Top – Urban Outfitters
  • Jeans – Topshop
  • Trainers – Lacoste

Date night

So tonight’s my one year anniversary with my wonderful boyfriend and he’s taking me out on a surprise date…

The only instructions I’ve been given are “to dress up but not smart”. 

Therefore I’ve decided to opt for a jeans-heel combo with a simple tie up vest and a long cape.


I decided to apply a nude lip, gold eye makeup and bronze cheeks in order to coordinate with the gold on my bag and my heels (shown in the photo below).

Let’s hope I’ve dressed appropriate for the occasion!

Get the look:

  • Jeans – Topshop
  • Vest – Brandy Melville
  • Cape – Matalan
  • Shoes – Zara
  • Bag – Vivienne Westwood
  • Lipstick – ‘Yash’ by Mac

Sunny Saturday

So today was my boyfriends last day off work and a perfectly warm sunny Saturday so we decided to go to the zoo. It turned out to be a perfect day to visit the zoo as it was feeding day for the Tigers, therefore it was fascinating to see their strength in action. I also saw my ultimate favourite, the elephant. 


My zoo outfit consisted a casual look with a simple tshirt, ripped jeans and converse. 

To top off my summery look I used Mac’s ‘Frou’ lipstick to provide a light shimmery glaze to complete my casual look.


Get the look: 

  • T-Shirt – Brandy Melville
  • Jeans – Topshop 
  • Shoes – Converse
  • Lipstick – Mac
  • Necklace – Tiffany & Co.
