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…

Fall is coming

Fall dawns upon us as the leaves are starting to fall off the trees and the bitter air is slowly starting to consume the summer breeze – therefore the coats are slowly making their way out onto shop floors.

However if you’re like me and can’t bare to let go of summer and all the cute little lace vests and slip dresses you’ve recently invested in there is a way to keep these items alive during this fall season… A trend so simple all you have to do is invest in a tiny tee…

THE SLIP DRESS… an infamous wardrobe classic that never goes out of fashion – therefore all the more reason to invest if you do not already own one and heres some of my favourites you can get your hands on…

Denim, stripes & cake

So today I’ve finally had a day off work and am able to share my ootd with you all as I realise I haven’t done this in what feels like a long long time!

I spent my day off on a casual outing with my Mum and we went to a little cafe to eat chocolate fudge cake (which was absolutely delicious) whilst walking our little mobes…


As today was a perfectly hot summers day I dressed to suit the occasion wearing my new denim cut off mini skirt. Denim mini skirts are a massive trend this season and will literally go with anything on any occasion and they’re always a handy piece to keep in the wardrobe!

I paired this with a striped tie up bardot top as bardot and stripes are another big trend this season. I finished the look with a pair of old worn converse to compliment the cut off style of the skirt.

As for beauty I finally tried out my Kylie Cosmetics Koko K gloss and I absolutely love it and I will review this product on my blog very soon as the glosses are very different to the lipkits so keep you eye out!!!

Get the look:

  • Top – Topshop 
  • Skirt – Topshop 
  • Shoes – Converse 

Augustttt 

Now August has arrived summer seems to have disappeared! However yesterday the sun was shining and it was a perfect opportunity for a costal walk and an ice cold mango juice because I’m in love with the mango ☀️☀️☀️.

I have always loved the beach. However, when I was younger I tended to complain about my hometown as there was never really much to do however days like this and living part time in a city makes me appriciated how lucky I am to live on the coast as the views can be so beautiful!


Due to my love for animals and the beach recently I have become an ambassador for a company called Sand Cloud… The sell the cutest beach towels and every single purchase helps save ocean and marine life!

I have a personal reward code for 25% off, which I can share with abou all if you are interested in supporting marine life as well as buying a dope towel!!! The code is: LilyW25 so get ordering!!!

Anyway… Here’s my outfit of the day for you all….


I decided to go for a simple all black outfit which I paired my distress denim shorts with a lattice black body and dressed it down with a pair of havaianas.

Get the look:

  • Top – Topshop
  • Shorts – Topshop
  • Shoes – Havaianas 

Nude nails

Hey lovelies! It’s been a while since I’ve done a beauty post but recently I got my nails done as there has been such a fashion craze with acrylic nails due to celebrities such as the Kardashian/Jenner clan, Rihanna and Beyoncé. 


These days there are many different shapes and styles for acrylic nails such as stiletto, ballerina, almond, round, square… You name it there’s a shape for it!


I decided to go for a nude nail in the ballerina style with a rose gold glitter on both my ring fingers… I looked at the bottles in the nail parlour and saw that the nude colour was an Essie colour named “Sand” and the rose gold glitter was an OPI colour called “Rose Gold”. But unfortunately as these are not my colours I can’t take a photo of the bottles or remember the numbers of the colours!


It’s amazing how great something so little like getting your nails done can lift your spirits! So if you’re ever feeling down go to your nearest nail parlour!

Chocolate fudge cake is everyone’s favourite in my household so that’s what I made. And instead of icing I smothered it in a tub of Nutella topped off with cadburys new “wini eggs” 😜😜.
