Blue Vintage Dress - Outfit of the Day

Vintage Dress // Hello loves, I hope you've had a great weekend! I was recently going through my wardrobe and came across this 'vintage' inspired dress from the online brand, Glamorous. It's funny how you can just easily forget about clothes that you own - I definitely have too many dresses and it's a shame because half of them don't get worn as much as they should. I think I may need to try out this Marie Kondo revolution and get rid of some of my clothes. I'd love to try a 'capsule' wardrobe some day - you know, when you only have like 30 items of clothing and you can somehow create endless outfit possibilities? But I dunno, I love all my clothes too much and so many hold sentimental memories, I don't think I could ever throw them away...

My Life in Pictures // Instagram

Instagram // Hello loves, hope you've had a great week. Valentines Day came and went in a blink - Owen and I enjoyed a Chinese takeaway and laughed at some classic episodes of Peep Show, but I can't help feeling like the year is already flying by. It feels like Christmas was only a few weeks ago and when I stop to think about it, I get freaked out when I realise just how fast life is whizzing past. But, it's also exciting - in a couple of weeks time I'll be enjoying a long weekend break in Copenhagen, a trip that was booked back in December and I had tucked away at the back of my mind. It's a great feeling knowing that I'll be back in the country that I love so much, and will no doubt be sharing a picture or two on the blog soon!

'Appy' Valentines Day with Vodafone Smart Prime 7

Smart Prime 7 // Hello loves, hope you’re having a great week so far. Oh, and Happy Valentines! I’ve got some exciting news – I was recently contacted by Vodafone, who have kindly offered me the chance to review one of their state-of-the-art smartphones, the Vodafone Smart Prime 7. Now, I’m very much an Apple ‘kind of girl’. My first phone as a young teenager was the classic Sony Ericsson W810 (who didn’t have one of their phones?!), but as soon as I could afford an iPhone 3GS, I was obsessed. I’m now using an iPhone 6, but if I’m being honest, I’ve never used any other kind of smartphone or brand.

I know that there are so many other options out there, and therefore jumped at the chance to review a different model. The Smart Prime 7 phone has only been lent to me for the purpose of this review, but I’m still very excited to try it out over the next few weeks and share my thoughts with you all. What are my first impressions though? Well, I am already warming to this super sleek smart phone – the design is perfectly simple and stylish.  The handset, so far, is incredibly easy to use and I’m impressed with the wide range of innovative features – it has everything you would ever need and want from a modern phone. And the best part, and possibly the most surprising? It’s incredibly affordable – the phone will cost just £16 per month or £70 pay as you go.

Valentines Love Heart Dress - Outfit of the Day

Valentines Love Hearts // Hello loves, wishing you all a lovely Valentines Day for when it arrives on Tuesday. Now, you may remember that I mentioned a while back that I'd fallen in love with a certain dress (it was this one here!) And you may have also remembered that I told you I had picked it up in two colours... Well, here we are! I decided to keep this cherry coloured beauty for Valentines time, and show off this heart print dress when we are about to celebrate the day of love! I'm going to be honest though - I actually decided to return this dress. The purple colour was not as discreet as the black and every crease and fold was very noticeable. When I sat down, the back of the dress became extremely crumpled and I just wasn't happy with how it looked - the black was much more forgiving.

My Life in Pictures // Instagram

Instagram // Hello loves, here I am again sharing another dose of weekly pictures. As you can probably tell, I'm obsessed with anything purple and shiny. I recently discovered that I'm short-sighted in my right eye, and my other eye has some sort of stigmatism - I'm not 100% sure what it all really means, but I do know that I now need to wear glasses in order to see things in the distance... Naturally, I chose a purple pair and have enjoyed wearing them over the last few weeks. Also, how awesome are those glitter donuts? I really want to try and attempt to make these with some edible glitter, do you think it would work?

Topshop Striped Orange Jumper - Outfit of the Day

Striped Jumper // Hello lovelies, how are you today? I'm hoping that you've had a great weekend. I'm sharing yet another quick outfit post today - this is a staple outfit of mine, particularly for work. I know this Topshop jumper is pretty old and I remember when most people had a version hanging in their wardrobe, but I really enjoy wearing it. It's a slightly different take on the classic 'breton' top and the orange is a much brighter colour than traditional black and white stripes. I always enjoy injecting some colour into my clothes - it's so easy to opt for monochrome most days but you know what they say.... The future's bright, the future's orange... ;)

My Life In Pictures // Instagram

Instagram // Hello loves, hope you've had a great week. So, it's February... it seems like only yesterday we were celebrating the New year - I know I say this pretty much every week, but time is certainly flying by! Anyways, I'm just sharing a few of the snaps that you can find on my Instagram account - I really try to use my Instagram as a sort of digital mood board, sharing inspiration and motivational images one day at a time. I recently picked up a few new books and I'm excited to share my thoughts with you soon. One of them was 'The Muse' by Jessie Burton, which has a gorgeous cover that is incredibly 'instagrammable'. Let me know if you've read this one as it would be interesting to hear your thoughts...
