Hey babes’, I’ve had to come to terms lately with the fact that I’m only going to be able to post when I’m able to. If that makes any sense at all – haha. Everything is crazy at the moment filming a brand new TV show for a pretty big channel and filming is everyday! By the time I grab my blogging camera these days, it’s always bloooody dark outside. Anyway, I’ve found two AMAZING new brands that I love. The first being Terry De Havilland. His footwear is remarkable and tick all three of the most important boxes – UNIQUE, MAJOR HIGH QUALITY AND ACTUALLY COMFORTABLE! I’m serious. If you keep up with my instagram, I shared a photo of my TDH gold wedges that I wore in Barcelona… I walked around the city in them all day with no hassle. This shoe collection is so beautiful and each pair are so insanely individual I had to have them all!! The shoes I’m wearing in this post is Terry De Havilland’s collection with ASOS (see – even asos know!). I also discovered a brand called Fan Club Clothing. They produce really cute slogan stuff but not ya basic slogans! It’s all pretty retro (which is perfect for moi) and american themed.  Full details of this look is at the bottom of the post!maccheesemacandcheese7macandcheese8macandcheese1macandcheese6macandcheese5macandcheese4macandcheese2Shades – VOW London, Tee – Fan Club Clothing, Skirt – Topshop, Shoes – Terry De Havilland X asos, Choker – Zara.

On Friday I had the best post imaginable. Three absolutely amazing Skinny Dip bags from their new Western theme collection. We all know how much I wanna’ be a cowgirl so these bags are absolutely perfect in helping me along my way haha. I styled three different outfits based around the bags with all the info below!

Click the products to be instantly directed to the site to purchase. These are my genuine everyday products – I feel as though a lot of blogging sites cheat their readers by solely advertising products that they’ve been paid to. I would always want to be honest with you guys and hope these products can be a part of your life. ALSO, just a heads up – A lot of these products are discounted at the moment so grab them whilst you can!

Another part of my beauty regime is my Beauty Box from ‘Look Fantastic’. Every month they send out a box of products worth £65. My last one was the ‘Jet Setter’ box and it’s so useful as you can find out what beauty products actually suit you without splashing out a load of cash on wasted items that end up not working with your skin type. It’s also very exciting when it comes in the post as you never know what’s going to be in the box!11140463-2144392532120434

So here is part 2 of my Summer Dreams segment – with clothes from We Koko & jewels from Wild Hearts.

This fur jacket just ‘SCREAMS’ Chanel no.1 (pardon the pun) from Scream Queens. I’ve actually been stopped a few times in the street by people asking to touch it NO JOKE. IMG_3684IMG_3710IMG_3694IMG_3706IMG_3690IMG_3699IMG_3677IMG_3688IMG_3685IMG_3682Jacket – We Koko (Karizma), one piece – We Koko (Marian Eespaev), all jewellery – Wild Hearts

It’s that time of year when we’re all shopping around trying to get the fleekiest outfits for summer. So here I am gracing you with the ideas and websites to make you look the best dressed TAN babe. And lucky for you everything I’m wearing from these ‘Summer Dreams’ segment is only from two websites – two websites that I’m obsessed with! We KOKO & Wild Hearts  Jewellery. We KOKO is FULL of diversity and has so many different designers so they’re literally your best bet if you cant be bothered to shop about and just wanna get ya whole wardrobe in one place! And Wild Hearts is the most perfect place to purchase that dinky, effortless summer jewellery. The pieces are so define and well cut and pop with any outfit.  PART 2 COMING MONDAY <3

Sorry my posting has been a bit wishy washy! Everything will be on track on Thursday. Hallelujah! Theres just too much going on at the moment! ahhhhh.

So here’s a post that has been due for a loooooong time. CHOKERS. I admittedly have way too many. They just make every outfit look great right? These are a selected few from my bundle at home. I think a choker wardrobe sounds like a plan.

Anyway, every choker is still available in store. I’m so sick of saying ‘choker’……

If you follow me on social media you’ll know I’ve just come back from a few days in Berlin! Berlin is a place that’s never really intrigued me – until I discovered the Bikini Hotel. tranquil19

The Bikini Hotel is in the top 100 design hotels in the world. It is jungle themed and one side of the hotel is actually complete glass so you can get a full view of the Berlin Zoo which also just happens to be in the hotel’s back garden pretty much!

IMG_2820

The hotel is full of quirky little features including your own bicycles in your room to ride around the city in, hammocks, electronic bathtubs with an in-tub sound system and insightful books scattered around the hotel and your room in case you fancy a read with titles such as ‘How to be an Elegant Gentleman’.  Not to mention the elevator having the soundtrack of David Bowie along with electronic artwork moving around the walls. IMG_2941tranquil14tranquil8tranquil13tranquilOur room was an XL Urban Room. Which meant it was facing the city. The main feature point was the extreme, grey URBAN bathroom with the HUGE electronic bathtub gracing the middle of the room. Unfortunately we made such a mess in our room (my boyfriend doesn’t seem to grasp the concept that clothes can go in a wardrobe….not the floor haha) – I didn’t think it was best to photograph it so I photographed another room for y’all. Everything is the same as our room except our bathroom was a hell of a lot funkier haha!tranquil5tranquil3tranquil4tranquil6tranquil1One of the main features of the hotel is the infamous Monkey Bar. People come from all over and queue for a loooong time to get into the popular bar – one of the perks of being a hotel guest is that you gain instant access with your keycard. Smooth. The bar faces the Berlin Zoo and is honestly the best atmosphere I’ve ever witnessed. tranquil18IMG_2984tranquil20tranqul21This is the hotel ground floor BTW. OMG!tranquil16And little features like this didn’t go amiss… tranqul11IMG_2954tranquil9tranquil15 Our stay overall was so fun. This hotel is full of so many amenities that you don’t want to step outside! The staff was ever so tentative and nothing was ever too much to ask.
IMG_2959tranquil10

Oh and did I mention the hotel has it’s very own shopping centre… with the CHICEST stores that stock designers such as Moschino, Comme Des Garcons, Vans and many more. tranqulil12

I also did this shoot whilst in Berlin…

We also ventured to Mitte and I found my dream store where you could make your own jewellery. The beads and accessories were to-die-for kitsch and featured every sort of charm you could ever wish for from life-like miniature cats to mini records with Michael Jacksons face on it. This is the necklace I made. I also got a bracelet but I’m piecing it together myself as I thought it would be fun… I clearly like to make life difficult.

I should say Berlin was a success!…xo

One thing I don’t like to do is post the same outfits on my blog as I do on my instagram. I like to keep it all fresh and interesting for you guys. Also – no one wants an essay long caption that takes up half their timeline when scrolling through instagram. That’s what my blog is for – an essay letting you all know the exact details of where my outfit is from. This week i’ve been feeling pretty sassy and have been running around the capital going to lots of events. Here are my looks from the past week as well as where you can purchase!

This snazzy little outfit was worn to the Braid Bar X Illustrated People event. A pretty cool event at the Illustrated People headquartres – girls were getting their hair braided, printing tees and of course eating the most delicious cupcakes from Conscious Cook. I’m wearing a sequined two piece jacket and crop set available to purchase in the links below. On top of this I’ve worn my most fave jacket by brand Karizma London where you can purchase from WE KOKO. Paired with new Topshop jeans and my Skinny Dip clutch!

dress1This outfit was for a private event I attended. Hair and makeup as always by the impeccable Kristina Theodoris at the HD salon and Charlie Wilkinson. This was a very special dress as it is from the Jessica Choay exclusive collection. It is completely stunning and feels like a dream on me. I paired the jacket with a DIY choker, Chanel necklace, classic biker jacket and KILLER heels from Public Desire. 

RAFG7033This outfit was my SAILOR inspired look that I rocked to the Designer Car Boot event at Brewer Street CP. The shirt is from new online store Unique 21. It sells great stuff so definitely keep an eye out on their website! My rose gold anchor necklace is one of my favourite things ever. It is by designer Katie Mullally Silver and I am obsessed!sailor

During my visit to the new Smashbox studios where my face was BEAT by the most amazing makeup – I took full advantage of the amazing camera lights and took a few pics! You definitely need to check out the studios – you can get all your makeup done and all you have to do is buy £30 worth of makeup in return. Make sure you tell them who recommended you 😉 My choker is again – the incredible Jessica Choay, my top from Boohoo, my fur gillet from a designer concession on the Oxford St. Topshop and belt from Beyond Retro.

Happy BLOG day! AND a Happy Birthday to my boyfriend who turned 21 on Sunday. To celebrate, we checked into the immaculate Park Plaza Hotel in Westminster followed by a truck load’a food and a suave dinner overlooking the thames. The best part about checking into a hotel room is that nerve wracking/exciting moment when you slot your keycard in and open the door to the COMPLETE unknown. The excitement for what your room is going to look like is overwhelming. Having checked into about 300 hotels in the past couple of years together – the novelty never seems to ware off! Luckily we opened our room door to the chicest room with the most spectacular view of THE Big Ben himself and was only a matter of minute before there was a knock at the door with a big chocolate (Matilda style) cake, macaroons and a plateful of goodies. Hospitality at it’s finest. Here is my little photo journal of our stay. No comments necessary – just simplicity and chicness.
