Last weekend I attended 2000 trees festival which is held in Cheltenham. This year was my third year running and I have to say it’s the one event I look forward to every summer. The festival itself showcases new & underground music from across the world of  varying genres and personally, I find it so refreshing. Day to day I listen to house/electro/dance music mostly but aside from that I really rock & indie (especially live)  so 2000 trees is a must for my inner rock chick!

You can catch up on last years line up & music review here.



The weather on the first day was gorgeous but I had to remind myself that we are in England so I wore an outfit prepared to adjust to any sudden showers. I absolutely LOVE this little dress by Boohoo, the embroidery reminds me of the Dolce & Gabbana SS Collection (see photo below). I teamed the dress with a western style belt just to give a little more shape and pull the outfit together.

Recently I’m liking feminine dresses and maxi skirts worn with distressed military boots, the combination is striking and suits pretty much everyone as you can put your own spin on it. This kind of grungy/rebellious style is perfect for festivals and I channelled this for Look One.

Dress – BOOHOO


Boots – Primark

Sunglasses – eBay

The second day wasn’t as sunny and it had rained the night before which called for the wellies! One thing I really like about festival fashion is that you can throw an outfit together in seconds and it works. I will admit I panicked slightly the morning of day two because the weather had predicted sunshine! I love the sequin top but I really wasn’t sure how it would look over a swing dress (plus the lack of full length mirrors really doesn’t help) so in true English festival style, I literally just threw it on and went with it. Looking back at the photos this outfit reminds me of the iconic Kate Moss Glastonbury snaps, have a look below for some glittery inspiration.

Strappy Cami Dress – Missguided

Fedora Hat – Boohoo



This year I kept my base make up natural by using a mineral foundation instead of my usual full coverage liquid one. I also find that using a mineral foundation makes it much easier to blend in your bronzer & highlighter which is ideal for festivals and holidays when you want to enhance your glow. My favourite products for festivals are listed below and you can find the tutorial for this heavy pigment eye make-up on my festival guide here.

Foundation – Bare Minerals


Bronzer – Mac ‘Give Me Sun’


Highlighter – Mac ‘Mineralize’ Skin Finish in Light/Medium.


For your festival make up bag…



Lips are a tricky one for festivals, I remember wearing a full red lip to a festival style day party in Ibiza and regretting it almost as soon as I arrived! High pigment coloured lipsticks are high maintenance at the best of times which is why i opted for my go-to natural lip combination of Mac ‘Soar’ lip liner pencil and Mac Satin Lipsick in ‘Faux’ these two products blend beautifully together and last all day. The colour is so similar to my natural lip colour that it doesn’t matter if I forget to re-apply. TIP: run a thin layer of liquid Carmex lip balm over the top to keep your lips from chapping and add an SPF 15.




Flower crowns are an absolute must have for any festival, a simple flower band instantly completes any outfit and compliments your face, hair and make – up. Plus they’re so easy to wear. My favourite has to be the ‘Cloud Nine’ crown from Candy Flower – you can find out more by reading my brand review here.


Harnesses are another simple accessory that I’ve found really make a difference. I was sent this black choker style harness a couple of weeks ago and I had been waiting for the perfect opportunity to wear it. I personally love pulling together monochrome outfits and teaming black with crisp whites, so i decided to wear the harness underneath my favourite long t shirt dress by Missguided and threw my Zara leather jacket over my shoulders. The perfect combination for the journey to the festival.



For my nails I chose ‘Minted‘ by True Brit London from their Classic collection. I wanted to wear a fresh summery colour that would match every one of my outfits so this creamy peppermint shade was just right. The high gloss colour also has a pearly white tint which gives off a luminous glow – the perfect partner for silver jewellery.

I would recommend applying a coat of their caviar base coat and then two coats of the colour and finish it off with their high shine top coat for prolonged wear at a festival.

Thank you for reading my 2016 Festival Lookbook,




Last week saw my blog turn one year old which feels crazy because it only seems like the other week I decided to launch it! When I first started I had no idea how successful it was going to become – I had just graduated and thought blogging would be a good way to keep in routine and start my career. I could only dream of collaborating with companies and other bloggers…

Now, a year on, I can say I’ve worked with a huge selection of fantastic independent brands that I feel honoured to be affiliated with. From my first collaboration with True Brit London, a luxury nail lacquer brand from London, to my most recent one with JD Women’s. Hard work and persistence really does pay off!

So, to celebrate one year, my friends at Saltwater in Nottingham offered me the chance to throw a little blogger party…so I jumped a the chance! It was so good to finally meet other bloggers that I’d come across online and get to know them. When I planned the event I also wanted it to be about networking. I recently attended a Blogger social in London which gave people like me a chance to link up and make new friends with other people in the industry. I remember walking out wishing there were more events like that up here in the East Midlands which would bring more people together, so, that’s what I did!


A couple of days prior to the event I was deciding on which cocktails to offer on the night and with the bar tenders, we came up with a ‘Strawberry Russian’. One of the reasons Saltwater is my favourite bar is how knowledgeable the staff are, if the extensive cocktail menu isn’t enough – you can tell them what your favourite flavours are and watch them come up with something just for you. I’ve always loved White Russian cocktails but fancied something a little different for the party so the strawberry twist was just perfect.

As well as delicious cocktails and personalised cupcakes from the wonderful Rachael’s Kitchen, the Saltwater chef’s brought out some nibbles for us. If you’re ever out and about in Nottingham and fancy a bite to eat, check out Saltwater’s new menu here. One of my absolute favourite things to do in Summer is sit out on the rooftop bar with a cocktail and enjoy the food! Their steak is the best in town and the sweet potato fries are amazing!


For the event I kept my outfit classic and opted for a midi LBD teamed with a thick black choker and nude heels. I’ve recently started wearing midi dresses much more frequently, they’re perfect for this in-between weather and show just the right amount of skin.

You can shop each item in the ‘Shop my Style’ section of this page.

Thank you to everyone who attended my event last week and made it so special & a huge thank you to all of you reading this, my followers! This past year has been a dream come true and I’m incredibly excited to see what this next year holds…








Yesterday I came home from work to the most generous and seriously amazing delivery from JD Womens! I’d previously seen the likes of Sarah Ashcroft, Charlotte Crosby and Sam Faiers wearing and looking incredible in Pink Soda Sports wear so, I was over the moon to try the sporty gear out for myself!


First off I was stunned by the quality of the fabric used on each of the garments they sent me, the lightweight and breathable material means this collection is ideal for working out on the tracks or yoga mats. Their capsule collection I’ve been wearing really is all a girl needs, sports wear can be pricey and what I like best about this brand is how versatile and durable their pieces are.

So, if you’re looking for some motivational new gym garms, look no further! Read my review below and shop the full Pink Soda collection here.
All five items of sportswear they sent me fitted perfectly, I (like most girls) find it really hard to shop for sports bras, the cute ones are always too small and tight across the chest and the ones that are big enough don’t provide enough support!
The Pink Soda Sport 2-in-1 Vest & Sports Bra is an absolute must have! Not only is it true to size and caters for bigger cup sizes but also provides lasting support (I’ve worn and washed mine a couple of times now and the bra is still supportive as it was when I opened the box!)
I absolutely love the simple and elegant monochrome design of the Pink Soda Contrast Fitness Tights. For me, what I wear when I work out is so important. If I feel confident I know I will focus and work hard to reach my goals, if I’m feeling at all uncomfortable it puts me off my workout completely! After all, there is nothing worse then feeling self concious at the gym. I would highly recommend these sporty leggings to any girl that takes her fitness seriously, the breathable fabric draws sweat from the skin cooling you faster. Plus the hidden pocket in the waistband is absolutely genius – perfect to store your keys and iPod whist you workout.
The plush Pink Soda Contrast Hoodie & matching Pink Soda Contrast Joggers are super soft and cosy meaning they’re perfect for both lounging on a Sunday as well as throwing on after swim or gym session. The Skinny fit bottoms are flattering and super comfortable, they fit all your curves exactly how they should do & the simple black and grey design keeps you looking stylish even after a tough workout!
When I first put on the sports bra and matching yoga leggings I instantly felt motivated to hit the gym! The powerful yet girly branding is empowering and infectious, I actually had a  few inbox messages on Instagram after posting a photo of my new goodies from girls wondering where they could get their hands on some Pink Soda!
If you’re still wanting to find new ways of keeping motivated have a read of my New Year Motivation post which will help you stay focused on your goals.
Girls make sure you follow both @JDWomen & @PinkSodaSport on Instagram and use the hashtag #PinkSodaSport to show yours off!
Pink Soda Sport is available exclusively at JD Sports, in-store & online.

Firstly, I am just so excited about this collaboration! The two mega babes behind popular blog A BIKINI A DAY Miss Natasha Oakley and Devin Brugman have been my absolute idols for the past few years. Aside from travelling the world and working with some of the most desirable and luxurious swimwear brands from all four corners of the globe they’re mantra has always been to inspire girls to feel comfortable and beautiful in their own skin by promoting healthy and natural bodies, which is something I fully support.
Their blog covers fashion, beauty and lifestyle and the duo are constantly addressing serious issues and using their fame for good purposes; read their latest article about why you shouldn’t pay to ride elephants in Thailand here.
Now that you’ve got a good idea about the girls behind A BIKINI A DAY lets talk about their recent collection with my favourite on-line retailer Missguided!
The sexy collection launched earlier this month and features a variety of cuts, shapes and styles. Personally, I’m really glad the girls chose a wide range of bikinis to feature in this collection because every girl is different; there really is something for everyone. The colours used are perfect and bang on trend, they range from pastel nudes to bright reds so you can find the perfect bikini to flatter your skin tone.
When it comes to the A BIKINI A DAY X MISSGUIDED collection, the stand out selling point for me is that each bikini is designed to fit the female body perfectly; the bikini top from the ‘Mesh Mix Triangle Bikini Set Red‘ has over the shoulder style straps that hook into the back straps to spread the support evenly just like a bra & I have to say it’s the most comfortable bikini top I’ve ever worn! I’d highly recommend this swimwear collection to anyone with a bigger bust C-D/DD the cups are wider and slightly longer than most I’ve seen on the high street and support you perfectly so that you feel 100% confident.
If you’re more of a halter neck girl then have a look at the ‘Mesh Panel Tie Bikini Set Nude’ which features a gorgeous gold tasselled neck tie with matching tie side bottoms (perfect for curvier hips).
Since following Natasha and Devin on Instagram I’ve become much more aware of what cuts suit which body shape. Before following them I would always wear full coverage bikini bottoms (to be honest I didn’t even know what ‘Brazilian cut’ meant!) In my mind I’ve always found full coverage bottoms quite annoying, they can easily become saggy or uncomfortable, which is definitely not what you want at the beach! I bought my first ever Brazilian cut bikini actually by accident, I ordered a bikini on-line without inspecting it and when it arrived I really wasn’t sure whether or not I’d get on with it. Luckily, I was pleasantly  surprised and haven’t looked back since. I find the Brazilian fit very flattering and comfortable so now my bikini collection at home now has a good mix of full, medium and small coverage bottoms to match my mood.
The ‘Mesh Panel Tie Bikini Set Nude’ is a great introduction to Brazilian Bikinis so if you’re a bit apprehensive like I was at the beginning, I’d say this set is for you! The colour is just to die for and the adjustable ties mean you will get just the right amount of support.
Still unsure? Read up about why you switch to Brazilian bottoms on the A BIKINI A DAY blog here.
One other reason to treat yourself to a couple of pieces from the collection is the price vs quality. The fabrics used are super soft and supportive, they’re not scratchy or clingy at all and in fact are very similar to the fabric used in Natasha and Devin’s luxury swimwear brand Monday Swimwear which I bought and reviewed earlier this year, you can catch up here. Monday swimwear is roughly triple the price of the Missguided collaboration and when I’m comparing the two, there’s little/no difference! The same high quality design and fabric of the luxury brand is used in the Missguided collection meaning you get a beautiful, perfect fitting bikini without the hefty price tag!
This is the reason I’m so glad that Natasha & Devin decided to work with Missguided as opposed to the other on-line retailers. I will always head straight to Missguided for on trend fashion for less and this collection is no different, ranging from £20-£35 you really can’t go wrong.
Here are a couple of my favourites from the collection, click to shop.

 This week I wanted to share with you a super easy nail art effect. For a while now I’ve been obsessed with all things marble, I love the simple, monochrome design and when I came across a photo on Instagram of some marble nail art, I had to recreate it!

This clean and elegant design looks best with an all black or matching monochrome outfit and the same marble technique can be applied on top of any colour. To achieve this stunning nail effect, read my step by step tutorial below!

IMG_6167 (1)
Remove any old polish with True Brit London’s new Strawberries and Cream acetone free remover. I like to use circular cotton pads.
TIP: Hold the pad on the nail for 10 seconds and then wipe off.
Buff nails and shape before applying any varnish. Short squared nails look great with the marble effect.
IMG_6169 (1)
Protect your nail with Nails Inc A&E base coat. I swear by this product, it prevents flaking and prolongs the colour applied on top.
IMG_6171 (1)
Apply a coat of Essie nail polish in the shade ‘Blanc’, allow 30 seconds to dry and apply another coat to give your nails a more solid colour.
Allow to dry! While you wait why not catch up on some of my previous posts here!


Using Collection 2000’s fast stroke eye-liner in black draw lines onto each nail in a marbled pattern, you can take some inspo from the images below…Also, as long as you apply the liner on dry nails, you can use this for your eyes too, it’s one of the best quick drying liners I’ve ever used!
TIP: Alternate thick and thin strokes and don’t be scared to be creative!
Allow the liner to dry (30 seconds/1 minute) then apply OPI’s Top Coat to keep it super shiny and chip free!
Be the envy of all your friends with your new marble nails! Drop me a photo in the comments section if you get a chance to try it at home!



I’ve been a huge fan of luxury nail lacquer brand True Brit London for a while now, being a Londoner myself it feels so good to wear and support a brand that are so proud of being British and centre their entire brand around my favourite city; London!

Since their launch back in 2014, I’ve had the privilege of reviewing their extensive selection of beautifully crafted nail lacquers for you (you can catch up on previous posts here). Their Spring Collection however is a little different; each nail varnish has a soft glittery shimmer making them light reflective and even more eye-catching!


SO, lets start with the colours! First off, they are all to die for, Spring is my favourite time of the year and their carefully developed colour palette consisting of beautiful blues & perfect pinks pretty much sums up what Spring is all about;  each unique and perfectly packaged shade has it’s own personality – making them the perfect addition to your favourite summer dress.



Rainy day is the summer pastel blue. For me, when it comes to styling this shade, it looks incredible with an all white outfit; the muted blue tone is a stand alone show stopper. I would recommend taking this shade on holiday & pair with chunky silver rings for the ultimate bohemian look. Feeling blue? Shop ‘Rainy Day’ here.



This one is for my Queens & Princesses, the candy pink colour makes ‘Street Party’ look edible, it’s the sweetest shade of the S/S collection and looks stunning on all skin tones. Make the colour pop by teaming up with a floral outfit & Party this way!



I am totally obsessed with this peachy hue, it’s not only bang on trend but the sparkly orange colour is simply perfect for festivals, holidays, BBQ’s or traditional English garden parties! Team this nail colour with matching peachy orange lipstick ‘Sexy Sienna’ by Charlotte Tilbury for extra style points.  If this is the shade for you, shop here.




My pick from True Brit London’s S/S collection.

‘Apples & Pears’ is the ideal nail lacquer for S/S, when I opened the box I instantly fell in love with the Turquoise colour!  This versatile shade can be worn with a range of coloured clothing making it the ideal varnish for daily wear. When I’m wearing it, it puts me in a good mood (if you think this sounds silly, you haven’t worn True Brit!) the vibrant and eye catching colour is like nothing I’ve worn before, it reminds me of the ocean and sipping cocktails on the beach, the ultimate mermaid nail varnish.


Like every single one of their nail laquers, the Spring collection is no different, each shade contains the same nourishing formula infused with Vitamin E, Elderflower & Rose extracts that protect and look after your nails underneath. The experts at True Brit London always recommend using the best selling ‘Caviar Base Coat’ and ‘Gloss Top Coat’ for extended wear and salon finish.

I really hope you’ve enjoyed reading about True Brit London’s brand new S/S Collection and I can’t wait for you all to see for yourself how beautiful the new colours are!

Buth Bheag is an independent handmade candle company based in the beautiful Isle of Harris, Scotland. This week I was sent a sample of two of their popular scented candles to review for you and I can’t tell you how impressed I am with both the quality and fragrance!

Like a lot of girls, I’m a little candle obsessed at the moment! I usually buy high end scented ones from Yankee Candle or for special occasions Diptyque but pay a lot for them. It’s rare that you find a candle range that smell amazing without a hefty price tag.

Buth Bheag is the first range I’ve tried and tested that has the same quality fragrance as the high end brands and half the price. Their full candle range is inspired and named after the stunning beaches surrounding the Scottish isles and I was lucky enough to trial two, ‘Losgaintir’ and ‘Huisinis’, read my reviews below!
Pink Champagne and Pomelo.
Husinis Beach, Isle of Harris.
As you probably already know, I love champagne (what girl doesn’t?) So when I read that the Huisinis collection was a blend of citrus fruits, Brazilian orange and sweet grapefruit, I was sold! After all, every girl needs a pink champagne flavoured candle!
Paradise Beach.
Losgaintir sands, Isle of Harris.
It’s not surprising why they’ve nicknamed this candle ‘Paradise Beach’, the combination of fresh bergamot, bright orange and rich amber remind me of beach sunsets, tanned skin and perfect summers. The almond and vanilla notes are quite warming, this candle is ideal to burn at dinner parties, romantic nights in or late evening drinks with friends.
These stunning scented candles are the perfect addition to your home just in time for spring, make sure to visit their brand new mobile friendly website where you will find their full collection and the perfect scent for your home.

This week I attended the Bloggers Hangout in London which was fantastic, Lauren (creator of BinBagCouture.com) and I were introduced to some new and exciting brands which I will be sharing with you on my Instagram account over the next week. The event was held at the Pop-Up Café in SE London (one of my favourite parts) and was just around the corner from Heron Tower.

Before the event got started Lauren and I decided to use our time wisely and went on the search for a location to shoot some outfits in South Kensington. I titled this post ‘Chelsea Girl’ as my inspiration came from poplar reality series ‘Made In Chelsea’  and was shot in one their local hotspots! When deciding what to wear, I wanted to replicate the effortless chic that the likes of Lucy Watson and Stephanie Pratt channel each episode, so I opted for a classic black outfit.

The cast of ‘Made in Chelsea’ can usually be seen shopping at the designer boutiques darted around Chelsea high street and the show follows their lavish West London lifestyle. For this post I wanted to show you how you can re-create a high end designer look for less.

My hair has always been wavy, but not those nice kind of waves you see on LA models, I mean somewhere in between straight and curly with really annoying flicks that do not like to be tamed! So, like a lot of girls I’ve tried and tested a huge range of products in order to find the ones that are right for me. Here’s a list of my current hair car routine products and the reasons why I think you should give them a go!


John Frieda Beach Blonde Purifying Shampoo, £3.99 at Superdrug

I love this product. It has a tingling effect on your scalp and leaves hair feeling squeaky clean and smelling ah-mazing. Plus, it’s not just for blondes! The product doesn’t have any colour depositing ingredients so can be used on all hair types .

Living Proof Restore Mask, £35 at Space NK

So you know how Jennifer Anniston has the best hair in the world? Well, she uses this. Enough said.

Seriously, I know it’s pricey but it’s so worth it!

Oribe Gold Lust, £45 at Spack NK

If you suffer from wispy  stray hairs or hair lacking shine then this little bottle of miracle oil is for you. Not only does it smell amazing but it also lasts forever. 1/2 drops through wet hair after washing will make a huge difference. Well worth the investment!

Bumble and Bumble Thickening Conditioner, £7.50 at Boots

If you love that fresh hair feeling when you leave the salon then this conditioner will be your new best friend. Finally, you can achieve a professional bouncy blow dry at home. This product adds gorgeous volume and actually makes your hair feel thicker, as if you have more of it. Use with their thickening blow dry spray for extra wow factor.

Schwarzkopf got2be 2 Sexy Big Volume Hairspray, £4.00 at Ocado

Aside from sounding like an awkward compliment from a chavvy boy this hairspray is my go-to product to make sure everything stays in place. A lot of hairsprays that I’ve used in the past turn my hair hard and frizzy, which I hate. This one is very different, it provides all day hold and doesn’t harden at all, so your hair stays soft and manageable. Plus it smells delicious.

This week I met up with Lauren Francine on location at the Park Estate in Nottingham – after meeting recently we decided to shoot some outfits and talk fashion over cocktails! Lauren is a fashion blogger over at www.binbagcouture.com and has recently collaborated with boohoo.com!

When I was prepping for the shoot I wanted to showcase two very different looks to replicate the edit rails I put together at my Style Lounge.

For my first look I went for an all black outfit, which is my absolute go-to. I often get asked at work why I wear all black by choice and the answer is simple – I spend my day styling other people and focusing on them, so when it comes to my outfit, I want it to be sharp and stylish but understated at the same time so that the customer knows the day is about them.

I’m excited to share this post with you as it features one of my favourite new season pieces by Topshop – the Sleeveless Faux Leather Jacket. I adore this piece – the chunky metal belt gives it a rebellious edge and the greyish tint of the fabric makes it the perfect alternative to a heavy classic biker jacket, meaning you can wear it through spring.
