Payday Treats From The Hub Of Sophisticated Fashion

(*Sponsored*) Donning my comfiest flats and most casual dress I always feel ready and set to hit some stores and treat myself. Especially when I’m at Bicester Village.

Famed for its selection of high end designer stores and discounted prices, a trip around payday is usually in my diary. As a blogger and general fashion lover, the pursuit of exceptional street style involves looking for some awesome designer pieces without the hefty price tag.

My Holiday Bathroom Shelfies

I love a good holiday. Last year I was fortunate to travel to Costa Rica, Rome, Las Vegas, Marrakech, Cornwall, and Venice and this year, well I’m currently in Cornwall and planning a little honeymoon (which is proving tricky now that I’m pregnant). Each time I travel, I always think carefully about what to take – particularly if I’m in a country where things aren’t that easy to come by.

The beauty of a holiday is that you’re more relaxed. You’ve more free time to exude on things you really like which for me, results in more time to spend on my beauty regime. I always like to take an indulgent mask away with me, be it for my hair or face and invest that little bit more on new treatments that require a little more time.

I’ve Been Wearing False Eyelashes For 14 Years

I guess you could say I know a thing or two about false lashes. Whether you’re a fan of fake strips or individual semi permanent lashes, I’ve noticed among friends and family there are usually two camps; those that find them easy to use and those who hate the upkeep and maintenance and stay clear. I’m not exaggerating when I say I’ve been wearing them for this long. My love affair started when I was 16 years old at school. Although my natural lashes are somewhat long and dark already, the first time I tried them I was hooked.

What Happened When I Tried To Move To NYC

A.K.A the ‘concrete jungle where dreams are made of’. Well that was quite literally the case for me. The first time I visited New York was one Christmas a few years ago. It had been six months in the planning; Christmas Day at Maddison Square Garden to watch Bulls v Knicks, dinner at The Four Seasons and various other restaurants plus VIP tickets for NYE at Jay Z’s club. Lil Wayne had just been let out of prison and was at Times Square – it was all very exciting (ha!). It wasn’t the glitz and glamour that drew me to my decision to try to move there though but the atmosphere, the people and the culture. It was then I decided, I had to move to New York alone and get a job.

I Wrote A Quote A Day Journal & Here’s What Happened

When I first heard of the bullet journal trend (getting a notebook and essentially drawing up your own template for a diary) I must admit I was tempted. Then I saw how much work was involved and how much time you need to dedicate to it. As a self confessed time poor, occasionally disorganised under pressure person it just wasn’t for me. Still, feeling inclined to do something with my copious amounts of notebooks (trust me I have a lot) I decided to use my small Smythson diary as a quote diary. Something to use to jot down a quote a day.

Why We All Need A ‘To Do Never’ List

To do lists, places to be, people to see, emails to read and plans to make… Phew. I’m tired even thinking about what I’ve got to do in the next couple of weeks. In life, in addition to thousands of other people I’m always being told how to be organised, how to be productive and how to force relaxation to train our body into winding down. It all feels a bit synthetic doesn’t it? I’m sure I’m not alone in sometimes closing my bedroom door, sighing and just saying ‘enough’.rewa

How To Spend A Day Alone In London

Aside from all the shops, bars and salons I know London like the back of my hand. It’s a great place to spend a day alone. My favourite place at the moment? Connaught Village. Aside from the beautiful salons and restaurants, the pre owned designer shoes and bags are absolutely worth a visit. From Chanel bags like this to previously owned designer shoes, they’re worth the short walk from Oxford Circus. The prices are great.
