What To Pack In My Suitcase This Summer

Summer's here and everyone's starting to get pack their suitcases not knowing what to pack. Que me to help you all find the perfect outfit for each of your summer destinations.

If you're struggling to figure out what to pack this summer, myself and Farfetch, have got you covered.

City Break

Now if you're going on a city break, wear light layers that are easy to move in and keep you cool while you're traveling the beautiful city streets. Footwear is a massive game changer. If you decide to do a lot of walking in heels, you're silly. Most site seeing worthy places require a lot of walking on cobble floor, so choose something practical while still looking stunning like a great pair of gladiator sandals.

For the evenings you can simply put on a cute dress or a pair of jeans with a cute top, perfect for partying the night away.




Pool Party

I love a good pool and I love a great party, so when summer comes along I can't help but get excited at the idea of a pool party. When it comes to dressing for a pool party, anything goes, Grab your most exotic bikini, monkini, with a pair of denim shorts or kimono and don't forget those amazing sunglasses to protect your eyes. You could even chuck in an oversized hat to go total diva.



 Country Side Retreat
The countryside just makes me think of floral. So for a lovely break in the country a cute flowing floral dress is perfect. You can team this with gladiator sandals and a chunky knit jumper for the evenings by the fire.

Mellow Yellow








Top Misguided | Jeans Topshop (*) | Shoes Topshop (similar here) | Sunglasses LeSpecs

Seeing as I am currently working in Portobello I have decided that I will be taking full advantage of the beautiful scenery and my new photographer friend Pippa.

I am currently OBSESSED with these jeans. I love everything about them. The colour, the style and of course... the ripped knees.

Topshop have currently got their summer sale so it's worth a little check so you can pick up some great buys for the season.

How To Deal With Hateful Comments On Social Media


The beginning of this week marked my first dose of hateful comments.

I uploaded a photo on Sunday and started to receive a backlash on Monday afternoon/evening. 

I had three different people post on this one photo of my face about my eyebrows. Now I'll be the first to admit that they weren't having their finest moment but I really liked everything else in the photo so I uploaded it anyway.

Firstly, I may be exaggerating because it's not like 100 people were being rude, there were only 3 girls; two of which were commenting in German. Don't underestimate me and google translate. I understood what you said! 

Comments such as tagging friends and saying 'haha the eyebrows' or 'ugly eyebrows' and the English comment 'ergh eyebrows need help'. Well thanks for that. Would you like to come and help them if their so bad and yours are so great? Didn't think so.

These comments really upset me, more than I thought it would have done and as a result I deleted the photo. However now I greatly regret that decision.

So what if my eyebrows were 'untamed' or 'ugly'. Firstly, it's no ones damn business but mine. Secondly, I had a look at their own pictures and they were girls that were a lot younger than me who hadn't even got to the age of taming their own eye brows. Thirdly, I had no idea that my eyebrows would offend these three girls that badly. 

But it really made me start to think and re-evaluate the situation. I have those three hateful comments the power by deleting that photo, when in reality, I had a lot more likes and nice comments than rude ones. 

How has society got to the point where YOUNG girls start to belittle 'bully' (if I dare to say so) and troll bloggers and women who set out to do something positive and helpful for those who need and appreciate the advice and tips we have.
It's shocking, but I guess most people don't like to see others doing well and feeling confident. 

I have uploaded the photo here and you can all leave comments, nice or hateful I do not care, but please be aware that myself and other bloggers or instafamous girls all have the same feelings, doubts and insecurities that everyone else has. By you trying to bring us down, it doesn't make you prettier, or in my case, make your eyebrows look nicer.

So how can we deal with these horrible comments? Delete them and move on. Don't respond to them, and don't even show anyone else, because who has time to worry about a shrimps opinion!

So be nice! We're all just trying to survive out here.

Denim And Crochet






Top Topshop* | Skirt Topshop* | Sandals New Look | Sunglasses LeSpecs

I didn't manage to post this look last week as I was extremely busy, but here it is. Better late than never.

I'm so glad I finally got my hands on one of these Topshop Skirts. I loved them in the suede and now I can't get enough in the denim, it's so practical and cute. But most of all I adore this crochet halter neck top. Denim and crochet is my favourite 70s style and I will definitely be rocking this all summer long.

Which is your favourite Topshop skirt in this shape?

It's My Birthday!











Dress Topshop (*) | Jewellery Ottoman Hands (*) | Shoes Jimmy Choo

If there's ever a day to be spoilt it's your birthday. I'm very lucky to say that I have the most thoughtful and caring family, boyfriend and friends who have already made this celebration of me just being me, really special and I can't wait to see what else I've got planned for the rest of the weekend.

I love wearing a special outfit for my Birthday and this dress from Topshop is a great show stopper. I absolutely adore the mesh and embroidery detailing all over and you can't go wrong with a classic white dress.

If you haven't read my latest post about turning 23 I suggest you do as you can go and have a little chuckle at my struggles here.

Here's to a great birthday! Lot's of kisses.
