Simple as black and white



Jumpsuit - Mango
Shoes - Matalan 
Earrings - Monsoon / Accessorize

Perhaps being a little controversial here, but I always find that Mango in the Spanish isles stock better items then the UK!? Well this wasn't any exception and I found this amazing jumpsuit which I swear I haven't seen in my local Mango. No complaints here.

Gladiator

Shirt - H&M (here)
Bag - H&M
Shorts -Primark 
Sunglasses - Rayban
Shoes - Matalan 


I have recently discovered how amazing the H&M shirts are and these were a last minute purchase before my holiday. They are really thin so can be a perfect cover up on the more chilly evenings. Gladiator sandals are a must have for me when going away. Unbelievably comfy but adds a little more style into any outfit.

Life in colour



Of course black is classic but I feel that every one needs a burst of colour in their wardrobe and in my eyes the brighter the better. So go ahead and dig out the Hawaiian shirt, rock the bright lipstick and for crying out loud buy the ridiculously illuminating bag that everyone says you won't use.

MISSY EMPIRE - The Bardot


Top - Missy Empire (here)
Skirt - Topshop (here)
Bag - Newlook
Sandals - Matalan




The Cold- shoulder / Bardot is a trend that is here to stay so I suggest everyone get on board and give missy empire a visit. White too risky? Do not fear it comes in a range of colours.

TIP - Although stretchy this top is incredibly tight so if you plan on eating or breathing whilst wearing it I recommend that people opt for one size bigger than they would usually go (in the picture it is a 10)

Flares, flares and more flares


Top - Missguided (here)
Trousers - Missguided (here) 
Bag - Topshop
Jewellery - Miss Selfridge (here)
Shoes - similar here 










This has got to be one of the best outfits I have ever bought. I bought them at the same time but initially never thought of them as an outfit until I tried them on and instantly fell in love. Flares of any kind are on my hot list so after finding these trousers and wrap top (in the Missguided sale!!!) I don't think I have ever added something to bag quicker in my life.  

Missguided, I thank you.

There's no place like home

Last year I did a very grown up thing and bought my first house.  A real-life, grown up house. It was a bit of a doer-upper but it's now been 1 whole year since we received the keys and so I thought I would blog a little bit of the renovation that took place to make it into our perfect home.  Hopefully it will act as a little bit of inspiration for those about to go through the same journey. Please comment below with any questions.

KITCHEN 


 Probably the easiest room to decide on was the kitchen. I have always loved the cottage shaker style kitchens and luckily Steve was on board straight away. The entire kitchen is from IKEA including work surfaces and the Metro Tiles were from  Stone trader at an absolute bargain - I think the tiles cost us something like £50 in total. The thing I loved about the IKEA service was that we were able to design the kitchen from scratch adding in things as we went to ensure it was exactly what we wanted. Over a few sessions meeting with the team we managed to create our dream kitchen.

BATHROOM


 For the bathroom we both wanted a spa-like feel and so opted for large stone like tiles to cover the entire room. The sink table was fashioned from a hallway table advertised in IKEA. A few finishing touches was all it needed - I saw lots of bath Caddy ideas on Pinterest and adored them so rather then buying one I asked Steve if he could make me one and I think he did a pretty good job!

The rest of the house really only needed a bit of TLC. It's incredible what a lick of paint and new carpets can do to transform a room!

Thanks for reading! The dressing room and garden are our next project so I will hopefully be doing an update on this blog in the very near future.

Biker Style

I have to say my Missguided biker jacket is probably one of my best buys to date and has been central in helping me deal with the awkward winter / spring transition we are all going through. Mustard isn't to everyone's taste but I love how it can brighten any outfit. If I am ever having a uninspiring day and throw on black jeans and a t-shirt this jacket helps turn the outfit into something a little more interesting. Love love LOVE this jacket. AND IT'S STILL IN STORE!


Jeans - ASOS (here)
T-shift - Primark
Jacket - Missguided (here)
Loafers - Newlook
Glasses - Primark
