Silver Linings

what to wear to a festival 2016 blog

It's the grand unveiling of my new nose! Bet you didn't expect that one did you? (Well, if you follow my social media you probably did, but anyway...) - it's so exciting for me, the first set of images since my op! But anyway, I have LOTS about that coming soon for you guys to have a nosey at (see what I did there? Yeah, I know, I'm not funny...).
As part of my recovery, I decided to basically spend all of my money to cheer myself up whilst I was house-ridden and that involved buying a ton of new clothes and make up. I picked up this cute little swing dress via Octer, which is basically a website that allows you to shop from various popular retailers such as Missguided, River Island and Urban Outfitters - so basically, it's convenient as hell. Who doesn't love browsing all of their favourite brands under one roof? If you're as much as a shopper as I am, then you'll be raising your hand to that one too! 
Holographic was out, but it's definitely back in again and just in time for the festival season. This little dress is from Urban Outfitters (where else?!) and i'm obsessed with it's versatility. Wanna rock that silver style in the day? Cool, throw on a tee underneath. Taking it to the bar? Easy - take the tee off. Who knew it could be so simple?

Here Comes The Sun

in the style charlotte crosby blog

Sometimes in the UK, it gets sunny - and it's that time of year where it's sunny the most... at long last. 
My wardrobe is finally getting it's 'out with the old, in with the new' attitude back and that all begins with new summer dresses to switch up old style habits and put in a little optimism. My first summer in a new city calls for all the shopping and more, so i've been picking up new dresses here there and everywhere like there's no tomorrow.
Anything with tassels on is my fave this time of year, so I snatched up these In The Style pieces the moment I saw them! I mean, how perfect is this little cross-body bag for the festival season? Paired with more tassels, it's a summer pairing like no other. 
In The Style have been killing it this past year, going from strength to strength, and they've quickly become one of my new favourite go-to's for my wardrobe needs! 
Some oldie but goodies are these lace up shoes from Just Fab. I signed up last year and although this is my only pair from them - I am in looooooove. I mean look at them?! Teaming them up with something a little prettier is my favourite look for a tough meets girly style to mix up those outfits.

The New Normal | Plastic Surgery and Millennials

more millennials getting cosmetic surgery uk

Over the past few years, a lot has changed by way of aesthetics and what people are into - and by that I mean we're all getting pumped up to the nines with filler and all guys (and girls) care about lately is a Kim K style booty to grab hold of (you know, 'cause that's easily achievable *rolls eyes*).

Until recent years, plastic surgery was for the likes of the rich and the famous, the Playboy bunnies of the world... And the Pete Burns and Jodie Marsh's. Today, every Z list reality star in the UK has dabbled in it and that girl that passed you in Co-Op this morning probably has too. It's an evolution of either vanity or self-consciousness and most of the time, it's hard to tell which.

Maybe We Can Work It Out

best workout clothes uk

Let's talk fitness. It's a love/hate relationship and involves a hell of a lot of commitment and time - but what makes it easier? Good sportswear is what. If i'm going to be truly honest with you, i'm kinda lazy. I like to eat pizza and binge watch the Kardashians on a daily basis and leaving the house isn't my favourite thing to do. I'm a hermit and I don't care. But that one thing that gets me off my butt and to the gym is some gorgeous new gym wear as I just can't wait to try it out, and this time, it's all about USA Pro. 
You've probably seen Little Mix parading their fantastic bodies around sporting USA Pro lately in the amazing super-bright collection which I. Am. Loving. In fact, i'm loving it so much I bought my mum and sister some of their latest collection so they could try and it love it themselves. Quality, comfort and colour is key to the sportswear in my gym drawer and this tie dye effect sports bra ticked all the boxes with it's seamless finish as it's so comfortable (and looks so good on!). The leggings sit at the perfect mid-rise height to keep those lumps and bumps tucked away and the seaming detail provides an extra supportive fit - it's the kind of gym wear you don't want to take off, even after a sweaty session (gross, but true).

calvin klein discount uk blog

Jumpers in June? 'Are you mad?' I hear you asking. Well, if I didn't live in the North West then yeah probably, but unfortunately it's still bloody freezing here and Summer is a rarity (so i've learned) - plus, it's ok if it's Calvin Klein! 
The shirt/jumper combo is a vital duo in my wardrobe and a failsafe work day-casual weekend look come rain or slight shine. 
I love anything that's classic and can be repeated each season, and that's what I love about Calvin Klein. I'm fairly positive at this point most of my basics are by the brand, and it's no surprise why (we all still love them since the early 90's!). There'll always be something a little cool about that 90's logo shirt - did that sound too hipster?

Waking Up With Teami Alive

best tea for energy review blog

I'm at it again with the tea, and this time it's with the Teami Alive 'Natural Booster'. I just can't keep myself away from a good old cuppa, especially any one that includes green tea (aka my lifeblood)
Taking a break from the 'teatoxes', I opted to try this energy boosting tea blend from Teami, a natural detox tea brand offering teas with all sorts of health benefits from increasing energy levels, assisting with sleep, aiding with weight loss and strengthening the immune system.
