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.
I have been honoured to announce this new product line for the release today and here are some of my favourite frames matched with a few of my outfits to provide inspiration for you all…
and finally combo 5…
My favourites are the ‘Zelda’ frames featured in combo’s 4 & 5, LOVE LOVE LOVE!!
Share your favourites with me and click on each photo to link you straight to the webpages or if you want to decide for yourself you can shop the glasses collection here & the sunglasses collection here. Just remember purchasing a pair of these fabulous frames means another pair will go to a very good cause!!
One of the hit accessories this season is the Choker necklace and if you have been looking at my instagram posts recently you will have noticed that I am somewhat a fan of this latest fashion craze…
The choker necklace was a very popular accessory back in the 90s and recently it has re-surfaced itself and became ever popular throughout SS16 and has now become a top hit for this winter.
Chokers have made a comeback with many different shapes, materials, patterns and colours. You can get cord ones, velevet ones, metal ones, beaded ones and even the elasticated ones that were ever so popular in the 90s!
I recently invested in this pack of 4 from Stradivarius… A shop that I am gutted I’ve only just found out about because I absolutely ADORE everything on their website and will definitely be visiting their London store next time I’m in town!! Check out their website here and here is a link to my chokers…
THE CHOKER… here are some of my favourite chokers which are available to buy now…

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…
THE TINY TEE – the piece that keeps your summer buys alive this fall… The tee doesn’t have to be white it can be any colour (that goes with the dress). Here are my top picks…
Dress – Topshop (old)
Tee – ZARA
Shoes – Vans
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
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.

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!
Hello my loves!
Has anyone else been sucked into the world of Pokemon go because I know I have! Pokemon was my childhood I had all the merch. But I always wanted to be like Ash and catch my own Pokemon, therefore I absolutely love this game and I think it is a brilliant idea as it has turned everyone’s childhood dreams into a virtual reality and now I have my very own Pikachu 💅🏽💅🏽
That’s enough of my nerdy Pokemon fan girl here’s my ootd for you all!
So for my day of catching Pokemon I decided to wear a simple red floral floppy dress. I absolutely love this dress as it sits perfectly and is so lightweight and comfy, therefore perfect for Pokemon hunting 😉. I paired this dress with a pair of gold sandals and tied my hair in a simple pony tail.

- Dress – Topshop
- Sandals – Sole Trader
