So I loved all these pieces way too much to save them until this month's festivals to show you and as soon as I received them I threw them on and headed out! I'm pretty positive my SS15 wardrobe is 90% suede now and only half of it all has even been featured so far. It's definitely safe to say it's the trend of the year - and if you guys checked out my Boohoo and Primark A/W preview posts, you'll know it's staying in full-force for next season as well (because what on Earth would I do with all these amazing suede pieces otherwise?)

Brand Love: Nip + Fab





As you know my beauty posts are kind of few-and-far-between but when I really love a brand, I can't resist sharing. My recent fave has been Nip + Fab. I've been using the Dragon's Blood Fix Plumping Serum for quite a while (long before Kylie Jenner claimed it to be her favourite product) and found it to be the perfect product for those constantly on the move. I generally have a pretty busy lifestyle with my day-to-day never being the same. I even work nights which means sleep is hard to come by and this really takes a toll on my skin sometimes. Enter Dragon's Blood Plumping Serum. This product moisturizes, hydrates and absorbs excess oil, as well as 'illuminates'. Paired with another favourite product of mine by Lancome (the all-amazing Dreamtone), i've definitely found it to improve my skin enough for me to go make-up-free happily!

Next up is the holy Glycolic Fix Overnight Purifying Serum - my ultimate favourite Nip + Fab product. Although I don't really have breakouts very often unless i've really overdone it with the fast food, my skin is fairly problematic. I suffer from blackheads in the nose area sometimes, and as well as being oily when wearing foundation, it's also really dry at the same time - but this is probably due to dehydration. Glycolic Fix works overnight to fight blackheads and impurities and prevent acne, as well as exfoliate the skin and i've definitely noticed a difference in the few weeks that i've been using this - not to mention it smells amazing. It leaves such a nice, soft feeling on your skin the following morning and just as it says, significantly decreases blackheads.

And onto the last two products - the more exciting ones i'd say - Nip + Fab's body range. These products were all over the media as 'plastic surgery in a bottle' and were selling out in stores at their release due to the rave reviews they were getting in the media. I remember reading about them briefly but never took any notice as I was too young to care about cellulite or the post-uni body, so I never bothered to try them until now. But I do have to say... Miracle in a bottle. I've been using Tummy Fix on and off for a couple of months now and I really love it - particularly as a gym aid and if you're looking for a quick appearance fix in a bikini or underwear. After a few days, there was a noticeable difference in my tummy and my stomach appeared tighter than before, without changing a single thing from my usual routine. I mean, it's not gonna give you a six pack overnight (or at all for that matter), but if you're not far from your goal and you just need a tighter appearance, then this is the one for you. I haven't used it as often as the bottle recommends, so I can't imagine how great the results must be if you do but i'm definitely going to start after seeing what it can do with minimal use. Both products again smell amazing, and are quite refreshing to use. 
I haven't used the Cellulite Fix as much as I have the Tummy Fix, but again, I have noticed a slight improvement since using it in my thigh area after quite the pizza binge, working impressively fast! Basically, what i'm trying to say is that it works and the products are great, especially for the high street price tag attached. 
Now, off back to the store to buy the entire range..... Toodles!

Beach Basics

Sliders - Oasap
Bag - c/o Primark 
Necklace - c/o Smashglam (here)

Slightly ironic, posting a beach-worthy look on a rainy day in London, but hey-ho what can you do... At least we can all pretend that actually we're somewhere nice and hot even though the closest we're (at least, I) gonna get is turning the central heating on a little higher! I've been posting these looks a little sporadically, but this is the last look from my Denim Lookbook that I posted last month on my new Youtube channel (I also have a new video up - a Primark Haul, FYI!) - so I hope you guys enjoyed that little series along with the video, and if there are any other series-type posts you might wanna see, let me know in the comments :)

What better away to frolic around the beach than in a chic yet comfortable jumpsuit? Living only half an hour-ish away from the seaside is my new favourite thing, and for someone who has had zero Summer plans (other than Creamfields) it makes for fun days out (and a cheeky photo-op, but of course). 
Every time Wal G have something that has a zip detail in the middle, it seems to be a new addition to my wardrobe each time - this jumpsuit being the latest, as well as another jumpsuit from their sister site TFNC... What can I say... I love a good jumpsuit!

PRIMARK JULY 2015 HAUL WITH COPPER GARDEN


So as you guys may know, I recently set up my new Youtube channel and have been uploading some Fashion videos here and there, and today my second collaboration with Jess went up! It's kind of essential to collaborate when your best friend is also a blogger and a pretty established Youtuber, so you'll definitely be seeing more of Jess on my channel and vice versa! Enjoy guys, and make sure you subscribe and give it a thumbs up if you want to see more videos from me :) 
P.S. I'm still totally new to this talking to a camera thing so excuse my strangeness

You may be able to tell judging by the fact that this is my second post featuring the place, but the museum in Brighton is my new favourite place, just look at all the door appreciation opportunities! (*stops talking because i'm a total nerd*....)
I'm not the kind at this point in my life to go for a tighter fitting dress. My student days are officially over now, and i'm currently dealing with the Dominos diet aftermath, so its safe to say i'm just not as confident as I used to be (which will all be resolved with the gym and some serious tea-toxing I hope!), but I couldn't say no to this dress. My suede obsession remains strong and this dress is just the perfect blank canvas for day or night - wherever you may be - and suede being suede, I couldn't not pair it with some serious fringing, right?!

Boohoo Xmas '15 Preview























Behold, Boohoo's Xmas collection. It shouldn't come as a surprise that the shoes captivated me the most, i'm a self confessed shoe addict after all and those pompoms are just too hard to resist - not to mention all the glitter and velvet. Christmas collections have us delve into a world of our fashion guilty pleasures - fur, sparkles and sequins, and this Christmas is no different (and thank god! A girl needs her annual sequin wardrobe fix!).
