Dress - Zara / Bag - Topshop / Shoes - Topshop

After a busy couple of weeks I'm back again, I had an awesome time in Amsterdam for my birthday which I will upload the photos of to show you all soon! I could not recommend Amsterdam for a short trip away, we stayed over the night too which made it a lot better. 
Anyway, on to the outfit, I got this dress from Zara when in Meadowhall and for £29.99 I couldn't turn it down, its very flowey and can be dressed up with heels and down with boots and tights which is always a plus. I feel very young Stevie Nicks in it, could spin around in it forever. I'm really not one for heels, I got these for my birthday night out and have to say I died, my body was not prepared to be out of control drunk in 5inch heels, infact I had to be carried most of the way home. I've been doing a bit of research on heels using this Stylist famous shoe article which is pretty interesting especially fitting in with my college work. On to that, I've just started getting myself prepared for uni, starting my UCAS and personal statement I'm hoping to do a course on fashion promotion in Manchester, if anyone has some advice on writing an awesome advice on writing a personal statement please feel free to give me some as I'm no good at this kind of stuff!

skin care

Winter is the worst season for my skin, it goes really dry and horrible and I need to take care of it extra well. Here are some of the things I use the most, I always have to remember to take my make up off, especially when its cold if I don't my face starts to feel weird and not smooth, thats why I love using exfoliators, they always make my face feel clean and smooth and topped off with my favourite moustiriser its a dream! 
I love using fake tan, but tend to stick to anything for fair skin or gradual, because I'm really pale I find I look a little weird with a tan so thats why St. Tropez's gradual everyday tan is the one for me, I like being able to control how tan I am.
Salon SkinCare offer so many amazing brand, including one of my favourites 'REN' and also Moroccan oil all for a great price too, I know what I'm linking to my mum for Christmas!

Dress - Topshop / Shoes - Dr. Martens / Amethyst necklace - CatSabbath / Mayan necklace - Balance 

I don't know what it is about the weather getting colder but I start to wear less clothes than I do when its boiling hot, but then again the summer in Cleethorpes has been ridiculously horrible. I picked up this Rib Topshop tunic last week for a measly £25 (with student discount), when I tried it on in the store I was worried about the shortness of it also with it having the little slits up the side but I decided to be gutsy and go for it anyway, its so easy for college days when I wake up 5 minutes before I have to leave and I've even dressed it up a little on a night out, they also do it in a burgundy colour but I'm hoping for a black one to come out soon!
 And I know I say this an awful lot, but I'm hoping this is me back in blogging business, the summer just got so hectic with work and college stuff on top but now I've found a nice balance of when to fit stuff in, just excuse the bad quality photos until I can get my hands on a better camera! I've got a few interesting events, gigs, and plans lined up over the next couple of months that I'm excited to share with you all.

Ready for winter with Joules

Wednesday, 15 October 2014

I've come up with a small wish list for getting ready for winter with Joules, an amazing British company full of gorgeous bits. No wardrobe would be complete without tunic dresses, they're a classic. Whether you're wearing jeans, leggings, or being a little daring (depending on the length) wearing tights. One of my favorite looks, tunic, tights, chelsea boots, and a fedora. My fave being the tradiotional printed Etty tunic, styles with the faux fur scarf and you've got a perfect outfit!
