Warby Parker -Leith Clark Collection

GLASSES… where are my glasses? Probably something I say to myself everyday as I am your typical four eyed girl always crawling on the floor searching like Velma from Scooby Doo! When I was younger I used to despise the fact that I had to wear glasses so I never wore them and quite frankly made my eyesight worse by not doing so… However, I now embrace my so called ‘four eyes’ and I’d say glasses are one of my biggest fashion statements whether they’re my eyeglasses or a pair of sunglasses.

I LOVE GLASSES, I mean who doesn’t? They hide your face if you’re ever having a bad makeup day, they hide the bags under your eyes after a night out in the club or waking up from them ever so early 9am starts at work…

Warby Parker, an AMAZING glasses brand have recently collaborated with Leith Clark and I LOVE their new vintage inspired collection and to top it off this amazing company is donating a pair of glasses for every pair sold to an organisation called Girl Up – a United Nations Foundation which helps to promote the health, safety, education and leadership of girls in developing countries.

Sunny Days

Sorry I haven’t kept you all updated recently my lovelies but I have been sunning it up on a well deserved break on the island of Mallorca for my boyfriends 22nd birthday… But now I’m back and blogging will be back to usual as my hectic few weeks of summer are now over and I can now tick Glastonbury, Beyoncé and Spain off my list of the year!

Anyway… The island of Mallorca is beautiful and there are some incredible views…


As for food, I think I ate more this week than my entire first year of uni 😂. But as you can see I’m still loving pasta!


As for fashion I decided to switch up my look each day in order to cram all my favourite summer bits into one week as England just isn’t warm enough to wear them most of the time. Here are my favourite photos of the week for some outfit inspiration…


As for travel the Longchamp bag and Lulu Guiness passport holder have to make an appearance…


Plus who can resist duty free Pandora in Spain?!

So that’s a quick flick through my life this week! If you want to know where any of my outfits or items are from just pop me a message and I will let you know!

Just one last thing…


Hotdogs or legs??? 😜

BEYONCÉ

So last night I had one of the best nights everrrrrr as I saw the queen of life Beyoncé on her Formation Tour! I traveled all the way to Cardiff because I am in Spain during her London dates. When the tour got announced I nearly had a breakdown, not joking.

Anyway, she was absolutely A M A Z I N G as always!! I don’t want to spoil it too much if any of you are seeing her throughout the rest of her tour so I’m only going to share a few photos…

She performs so many songs and the amount of hard work and determination that has gone into her set just proves why her tours are always a sell out! Plus her outfits were amazing 😍


I also went a bit cray cray on the merch, no one can resist Bey’s merch… Oops…


As soon as I bought my sweater I had to add it to the rest of my outfit because yanooo fan girl and all that jazz!!

Get the look:

  • Sweater – Beyoncé
  • Jeans – Topshop
  • Shoes – Lacoste
  • Hat – Ivy Park

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! 

Every Inch Matters

Today I decided to try out a pair of ‘flatform’ shoes because I have never previously owned a pair before. I was never into the platform converse or creeper phase back in school, I didn’t care how short I was those shoes weren’t worth the added height for me! But  recently I have noticed Kendall Jenner being a massive fan of Stella McCartney’s flatform shoes which I absolutely ADORE . Ever since I’ve been on the hunt for a similar styled pair on the high-street and this is where I found these beauties from Zara…

As you may or may not know I am very short, 4ft11 to be precise therefore it isn’t always easy achieving the look I want due to limited petite resources. Therefore for me every inch counts. Whether it be heels, platforms or flatforms adding a few inches can be so important to my style as it provides an elongated illusion to my legs.

blog 1

As for my clothes… I decided to go for a kind of urban athleisure vibe due to the mix of my branded tee, cap and skinny jeans as athleisure has proved to be one of the best casual looks since 2010 and I am a massive fan of this look and love the fact that it can be mixed with less casual items like my shoes!

Get the look:

  • T-Shirt – Ralph Lauren
  • Jeans – Topshop
  • Shoes – Zara
  • Cap – Ivy Park

Zozo

So today I’ve spent the day shopping for fathers day and birthdays with my Mother, whom everyone knows as Zozo. The famous Zozo…. A basic summary of her would be; she always makes me look as pale as a ghost, she constantly copies me, she stalks me and all my friends on social media, she literally has her own abbreviated language but most of all she is nuts and everyone loves her for it.


Since I started my blog she has been so desperate to feature, so I thought today was the perfect opportunity to introduce her to you all… Mainly because I thought her outfit was pretty good today 😂.


 Today she is wearing a tan hat with a grey longline vest with leather trimmings paired with ripped skinnies and buckled sandals. Zozo has an obsession with hats she’s got about 10 of those hats in different colours so she pretty much wears them with every outfit.


Today I went for a simple pastel pink vest, alongside my pastel pink slip ons paired with some skinnies to channel my inner casual city chic. Finished off with some Candy K!

Get our looks:

Me

  • Top – Brandy Melville 
  • Jeans – Topshop
  • Shoes – Vans

Zozo

  • Top – Miss Selfridge 
  • Jeans – Topshop 
  • Shoes – Topshop
  • Hat – Orvis

Vita Coco

Today I have had a really postive day and therefore I’ve decided to share one of my top beauty secrets with you all…

I live by this stuff for my hair and it can be bought in the condiments aisle in Tesco as well as shops like Urban Outfitters…

Taaa daaaaaa!

Vita Coco coconut oil is perfect for everything from beauty to cooking!! It has many purposes and makes a great mosturiser however the main reason I use this oil is for my hair…


This stuff is A M A Z I N G for hair. I always apply it to my hair the night before I wash it or if I don’t have time for that, I leave it on at least one hour before I wash it. It provides my hair with so much strength and has increased the shine of my hair especially in my blonde ombré! 

As for the application, I leave my Vita Coconut in a room temperature environment so it doesn’t go rock hard but doesn’t melt this making it the right consistency for application. For my hair I scrape some of the oil out and massage it in until my whole head is covered. I apply extra to the ends of my hair and tie my hair up so it doesn’t soak into my clothes.

I then wash and blow dry my hair normally and I am left with healthy, clean, soft, silky and shiny hair.



It is also very long lasting and therefore worth the money! I’ve had this pot about 3 months and still have half left!

I really recommend you try this product out to keep your locks healthy this summer as the sun can be damaging to your hair.

Go get your Vita Coco oil here!!!
