My Summer Essentials


PHONE CASE* - ICONEMESIS

This is such a Summery phone case, designed in collaboration with artist, Sacha Kreeger. It brings a little touch of colour to my mostly black wardrobe, and coordinates beautifully with a pop of red lipstick! Iconemesis are an independent, innovative and creative business who have just launched a campaign with Indiegogo to help them become a globally recognised brand - support their cause (here) and get an iPhone case of your choice thrown in!

LIPSTICK - BOURJOIS

A gorgeous colour and formula, Bourjois have several shades of their 'Velvet' collection, but 'Personne ne rouge!' is my favourite; it's a deep red colour that glides on like a dream!

LIPLINER - BARRY M

I've gone off Barry M products slightly due to their quality, but I must say that this lipliner definitely does the job. It creates a sleek, opaque line that doesn't bleed - perfect for hot Summer days and nights.


NAIL POLISH - BOURJOIS

I've worn black nails ever since I was a grungy teenager, but this look's been given more of a fashiony update since. This Bourjois 'So Laque!'' nail polish in 'Noir de chine' is so shiny and opaque - but beware that its thick formula needs plenty of time to dry, so apply while you're sunbathing and just relax for a few hours!

RINGS - NOWSEEN

Nowseen is one of my all time favourite fine jewellery retailers. Their selection of silver rings work perfectly with all my outfits, and vary in style from minimalist to avant garde. The Hammered Ring (worn on middle finger) can be worn as a knuckle ring or can also be worn further down, while the Trax Ring can add a touch of tribal style to your hands.

BRACELET - DOROTHY PERKINS

I spotted this beautifully ornate bracelet in Dorothy Perkins this month and just had to have it. It can spice up a simple outfit or compliment your dress on a night out, and the silvery tones go perfectly with my NOWSEEN rings.


SHOES - ZARA

I'm still finding it hard to believe that I bought these in the Zara sale, as they're just so damn beautiful! The pastel pink is the perfect shade to go with white, distressed jeans or a baby blue, chiffon midi skirt - they're so girly I could cry. And the t-bars are not just comfortable, but so on point for this season!

   Somehow, the amount of Instagrammers I follow has increased significantly in the past few weeks - perhaps because there are so many bloggers whose style is so on point. Not only have I been avidly following their posts, but also my style has undergone a serious, yet subconscious (I think), tweak. 

   I've been wearing so much black lately, a shade which I hated before because it made me look so pale; however, as it's currently so sunny and hot in little old Blighty, I've had to stick to light fabrics and incorporate white to contrast. Not a huge problem, as I don't own THAT many heavy black fabrics, but I'm sure that'll drastically change this coming A/W.

   I wouldn't say my style has become more grunge (as I abandoned that look along with my moody teenage self), but it's definitely evolved into something more laid-back and nonchalant. I'm finding that I'm wearing flats a lot more, as well as making good use of minimalist silver jewellery, mirrored sunglasses and black nail polish - oh, and my current playlist seems to have gained a lot of Alanis Morissette... Is that relevant? I'll let you decide.

   Keep an eye out for my next haul video which will, no doubt, consist of many a slouchy t-shirt.

Sportswear Wishlist

   If you've watched my latest fitness update on YouTube, you'd know that I'm getting really into working out right now. I'm exercising every other day, and I'm really trying to eat healthily - but all I need now is the right clothing so that I don't look like I have no idea what I'm doing.

   Sure, I have a few well loved yoga pants and comfy sports bras that I've been making good use of, but what would really motivate me is a pair of brand new trainers - some brand new Nike Frees or Roshe Runs would really make me feel that little bit more excited to exercise!

   Here is my latest wishlist detailing my current lust for all things sporty:



Free 5.0 in Black/Anthracite/White by Nike - £90
Stamina Sports Bra by Sweaty Betty - £33.00
Sports Tights by H&M - £12.99
Sports Bra in White/Patterned by H&M - £9.99
Homiés New York Sweat Pants in Heather Grey/Gold by Reason - $68
Pop Colour Zip Hoodie by Superdry - £49.99
