HAPPY SUNDAY! <3

I know I said in my last post that since my blog has had a revamp I will be posting a lot more… Well, it’s been a little tough over the last couple of weeks. Ben and I are currently searching for our first home together. Yes really! We never thought it would be so time consuming but also very exciting and stressful all at the same time.

A couple of weeks ago I went on another photoshoot with Stu to our favourite, picturesque location in Dorset. In this shoot I wore a silk, black playsuit from MissPap and some faux suede, thigh-high boots from In The Style. Both fashion retailers provide affordable, quality clothing that are perfect for evening wear.

I lovee this wrap front playsuit with a plunge neck line. I decided to style it with a choker necklace which I like to do when wearing something with a low cut neck. I also chose to style this playsuit with these thigh-high, faux suede boots which I think gives it more of an edgy look. I rarely wear thigh-highs, but I felt they teamed perfectly with this outfit.

My stay at The Hoxton Hotel, Shoreditch <3

I’ve always heard good things about this hotel so before I got there I knew it definitely wasn’t going to be a let down. I go to London every now and again to attend blogger events and just to spend a little time away with family… because we all love a bit of sight seeing don’t we? 🙂

Hello guys and gals! <3

I hope you’ve had an enjoyable, relaxing Sunday? I know I have, although I did have a lovely night Friday spent at The Hoxton Hotel in Shoreditch.

I’ve always heard good things about this hotel so before I got there I knew it definitely wasn’t going to be a let down. I go to London every now and again to attend blogger events and just to spend a little time away with family… because we all love a bit of sight seeing don’t we? 🙂

I had a relaxing 3 hour trip on the train from Dorset to London Waterloo station and from there I caught an Uber to Shoreditch. I instantly fell in love with the area because there was so much to do a lots going on. There were lots of bars and restaurants on the same street as The Hoxton so I knew I definitely wasn’t going to get bored.

As I walked through the doors of The Hoxton Hotel I instantly fell in love with the style of the place. They have a gorgeous restaurant, bar and coffee area as well as roomy seating areas. I caught the lift to the 6th floor where I was greeted by my room for the night. My room was very light, spacious and modern with a brightly patterened carpet, a table and chairs, coffee making facilities and a cool TV that I could pull away from the wall and face in any direction I wanted (AMAZING, HUH?!) The bathroom was decorated with black tiles which also gave it a modern feel. The white lights lit up the bathroom as well as the spacious shower. In the room was an air con and a fridge which kept my Prosecco nice and cool 🙂 I absolutely love how welcoming the hotel made me feel. Continue reading “My stay at The Hoxton Hotel, Shoreditch <3”

My 23rd Birthday! <3

I am still in shock that I turned 23 just a few days ago.. Man I’m starting to realise that I’m turning into a fully grown adult. I even had to tell my boyfriend off for calling me a ‘girl’ yesterday. “No I’m not a girl” I replied, “I’m a woman”. At what age do you turn from a girl into a woman? Is there a set age?

Happy Sunday guys and gals!

I am still in shock that I turned 23 just a few days ago.. Man I’m starting to realise that I’m turning into a fully grown adult. I even had to tell my boyfriend off for calling me a ‘girl’ yesterday. “No I’m not a girl” I replied, “I’m a woman”. At what age do you turn from a girl into a woman? Is there a set age?

Anyway, I had an AWSOME Birthday, spent with my boyfriend & sister. My sister and I went to get controversial tattoos (we like to be controversial) LOL! I had a large Bohemian style tattoo on the side of my thigh and my sister had a little elephant on her ankle. I’ve received lots of comments on Instagram asking me if my thigh tattoo hurts. Let me tell you, it’s not an unbearable pain at all, but of course there is an ounce of pain. It feels like a burning friction sensation, but it is definitely a bearable pain. After 5 minutes of being in the chair I hardly thought about the pain because I got used to it. I must admit, the shading felt a bit weird.

Here’s my new thigh tat! I’ve got to go back in a couple of weeks to have a bit added to it but you can see photos when it’s finished over on my Instagram page (so keep an eye out).

We also spent the day shopping in Bournemouth which was great (a girl gotta shop on her Birthday). I bought loads from Topshop and Miss Selfridge. I was a little gutted I didn’t see anything I wanted in River Island because it is my all time favourite shop! (*sad face*)

The weather was gorgeous and we chilled in the gardens with beautiful flowers (I’m not sure what these gardens in Bournemouth centre are called). I could have sat there all day!

We then carried on with a little more shopping and bought a Bubble Tea from the top of town. If you follow me on Snapchat you will understand the love I have for Bubble Tea.. That’s if you haven’t deleted me due to the number of Bubble Tea snaps I post almost daily haha (*monkey covers eyes emoji*).

PS. If you haven’t tried Bubble Tea yet then PLEASE, the next time you’re near a cafe that sells it.. Buy one! It’s surprising how many places sell them these days. They’re so fruity and I swear some of them don’t even contain tea at all? My favourite is the passionfruit syrup with mango boba at the bottom in case you’re stuck deciding on a flavour to try.

After a wonderful day shopping, we headed to Poole for some dinner. We decided to eat at Chiquitos and I had their pulled pork Tacos (nom nom)! For those who love Mexican food, Chiquitos is an absolute must try. We had a lovely meal followed by a quick game of bowling. We decided that whoever lost would have to give the winner their mobile phone for the evening. The winner could send a text message of their choice to 10 of the losers contacts and see what hilarious replies they received back. It was such a tight game and my boyfriend won followed by me and my sister drawing! Can you believe how lucky we were to both draw meaning that no one had to sacrifice their phones for the evening (phew).

I later returned home to a rather large parcel from MissGuided that contained a load of gorgeous dresses, jeans and a top. I love a MissGuided delivery! If you want to find out what items I received then head on over to my Instagram where I will be posting photos over the next couple of weeks 🙂

So that was how I spent my 23rd Birthday. I had the most enjoyable time and I’d like to thank everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday through social media. I will be filming a Youtube haul today on the items I purchased and also on my MissGuided delivery! My video should go live either tonight or over the next couple of days.

Kelsi Dagger Brooklyn Sandals <3

I am amazed at how beautiful this British weather is! It was forecast to rain this weekend yet today I spent the day in a short sleeved top and caught the sun. Who needs to go abroad for Summer when the weather is like this, huh?

Heyyyy,

I am amazed at how beautiful this British weather is! It was forecast to rain this weekend yet today I spent the day in a short sleeved top and caught the sun. Who needs to go abroad for Summer when the weather is like this, huh?

Anyhooo, I decided to publish a post on my gorgeous new Kelsi Dagger Brooklyn sandals. You may have heard of this brand before as they are HUGE in the US but have begun releasing their high quality footwear in the UK too. You can currently browse and buy their gorgeous range from Office Shoes. These black sandals are made of leather and feature twin buckle straps on the sides making them easy to put on and take off. They offer a slight gladiator style which is totally in this season, plus they’re super comfy! What I love about these sandals is you can wear them with just about anything, so you don’t need to spend ages planning on how you’re going to style them. I love them with a pair of rolled up jeans but they would look great with a pair of shorts too. I went out on a shoot earlier on this week so show off my snazzy new Kelsi Dagger Brooklyn sandals, check them out! <3
