Salt and Pepper Coat // Outfit of the Day

Salt and Pepper Coat // Happy Sunday, hope you've had a lovely week. I bought this 'salt and pepper' coat from Oasis about three years ago, and it's been a staple piece of my wardrobe ever since. It was honestly a fantastic purchase - it was £100 but I also think it's a good idea to invest in a quality coat, and this one has been such a great purchase. I've had it dry-cleaned a number of times but it's still looking as good as new. The speckled black, white and grey design complements so many of my existing items of clothing, making it such a versatile jacket.

My Life in Pictures // Instagram

Instagram // Oh how I just love the arrival of Spring and the warmer days... It just makes everything better. I've always told myself that I'm destined to live in the sun - I think it was all those summer holidays spent travelling around Europe, mainly Italy, when I was younger. I am now a full-blown sun worshipper and can honestly say I'm only truly happy when in the sunshine. So, as you can imagine, living in cold and wet Scotland can be difficult and I'm pretty sure I've suffered from S.A.D at some point in my life... Still, Scotland looks extremely pretty when the sun does decide to shine, and I thought I'd share some of the pictures that I've been snapping lately.

How to spend 48 hours in Copenhagen, Denmark

Copenhagen, Denmark // At the beginning of March, I travelled to Copenhagen to celebrate my lovely friend DeeDee's 30th birthday. I was so excited to return to CPH - I spent a wonderful 6 months living in Denmark whilst studying at University - I was fortunate enough to take part in the study abroad Erasmus programme and attend Teko University in a small danish town called Herning. Now, Copenhagen was a good 3 hours away on the train, but it didn't stop us from visiting every couple of weeks, and I soon fell in love with the city. Going back there just deepened my love for the country even more, and so I thought I'd share my short trip with you all. We arrived on the Friday night and left early Monday morning, so we had a solid 48 hours to enjoy the beautiful city...

Aztec Print // Outfit of the Day

Aztec Print // Hello loves, hope you're having a great weekend. It's been a relatively quiet week for me, but I still managed to have a wander through the local charity shops in search for some bargains. I'm particularly excited to show you this little black and white number - I was drawn to the busy aztec print and cute cut, and sold by the £4 price tag! As much as I love finding pieces on eBay, charity shop bargains are just as great. I know it's not for everyone, but I love being able to find new pieces for a little price tag.

Imagise Personalised iPhone 6 Case Review and Giveaway 2017

Imagise iPhone Case // Happy Friday, hope you've had a great week so far! Exciting news: I was recently contacted by the lovely team over at Imagise, who kindly offered me the chance to design a personalised iPhone 6 case! I'm definitely one of those people who are obsessed with their phone and it's constantly in my hand or extremely close by... I've always loved buying cases for my phone and making it as pretty as can be, so when I got the chance to design a new case, I was really excited. I'm a sucker for bright patterns and recently came across this pastel, watercolour design on Pinterest. I was particularly drawn to the pink, purple and blue colours (my favourite!) and was instantly in love when the case arrived in the post last week. I am really impressed with the quality of the case. It's made from thick plastic which is protective and will keep my iPhone completely safe and secure - perfect for anyone who is clumsy like me! :-)

Easter Parade // Outfit of the Day

Easter Parade // Hello loves, hope you're having a wonderful weekend. It's Easter - the only time of year that it's acceptable to eat as much chocolate as you like, and nobody will judge. Hope you're having a great mini holiday with family and friends, and I also hope you've got easter eggs coming out your ears. Brace yourselves but I'm about to admit a big secret: I'm actually not a fan of chocolate. Yup that's right, I hardly ever eat it and when I do, I feel really sick. It's just not my go-to snack or treat. Now, crisps are a different story. I'm always the first to open a bag of crisps or dip my hand into the big bowl. I could seriously eat crisps for daysssss and I'm known for always carrying an emergency packet in my handbag... I really wish there was a British holiday that celebrated crisps, not chocolate! ;)

Feeling Grey - Outfit of the Day

Feeling Grey // hello loves, how's your week been? I picked up this grey jumper from the H&M sale last week. It was an absolute bargain - £5! and it's blended with cashmere and wool, making it feel like such a luxurious piece for the tiny price tag. I usually hate the itchy feel of wool against my skin but this jumper is lovely to wear and doesn't irritate at all - yay!

Amazon Fire TV Stick Review 2017

Amazon Fire TV Stick Review // Hello loves, I have a slightly different post for you today. I was recently asked if I wanted to review an Amazon Fire TV Stick. Now, I’m going to be perfectly honest and let you in on a little secret.... I had no idea what an ‘amazon fire TV stick’ even was but with a name like that, it was too exciting an opportunity to miss, haha! :-)

I quickly learned that an amazon fire tv stick is a sleek, black USB-shaped stick that you plug into your TV through the HDMI port. It’s an easy way to enjoy over 7,000 channels, apps and games (yes, really!!), AND it gives individuals the chance to watch over 250,000 TV episodes and movies on Netflix, Amazon Video, BBC iPlayer, YouTube, ITV Hub, HBO Now, HULU to name a few… Yes, that’s right. This is pretty much every TV lovers’ dream and a real game changer when it comes to the way we now watch TV. We have all seen the success of channels like Netflix and the huge trend of watching TV and movies in a portable, wireless way.

Daniel Wellington Watch and Discount 2017

Daniel Wellington // Hello loves, hope you're having a great week so far! You'll know from my previous posts [here, here and here], that I have a slight obsession with my new watch from Daniel Wellington. The Swedish brand very kindly sent me one of their Classic Sheffield watches and I was over the moon. These watches are gorgeous and are the perfect accessory for any outfit - seriously, this watch goes with everything. That's why I love a black and gold combo so much, it's a timeless look that means you can honestly wear this watch pretty much everyday.

Another Floral Dress - Outfit of the Day

Another Floral Dress // Wow, it's April, when did that happen?! Anyways, here's me in a floral dress - what's new? It's true, I must own about 100 different floral dresses, but to me, they are all unique in their own way. It's kind of like it's become my wardrobe staple, just like some women love black jeans or a classic white shirt, I love floral dresses. To me, you can't really go wrong with them and usually go well with my jackets, black tights, and accessories.
