Hydrating Skincare

Like many people who suffer, or have suffered with acne in the past, I immediately presumed that I had oily skin as my skin used to be so greasy and aggravated. For years I invested in products designed for oily skin and didn’t particularly see any results. It was only when I ended up using the Garnier Skin Active Rose Water Botanical Day Cream, because my sister let me borrow hers when my old moisturiser had run out, that I noticed a massive difference.

It was as if my skin had changed over night – it was instantly smoother and more hydrated. This moisturiser showed me that I have dry and sensitive skin, something which I didn’t realise before. I completely recommend this wonderful moisturiser/day cream as not only does it feel amazing on the skin it also smells heavenly. It literally smells of roses!

How I Manage School And My Blog

I’m currently in my final year of sixth form (the last year of schooling in Britain) and of course the work is tough. I do subjects that require an awful lot of work, especially textiles which is mainly coursework based, and I often receive the question, ‘how do you fit your blog in?!’.

100 Posts On – How I Feel About Blogging

This post is the 101st post on my blog and wow those posts have just flown by. It seems like just yesterday that I was starting out, setting up my website and shooting my first lookbook; yet here I am almost six months on and the world of blogging is only just opening up to me.

Blogging has opened up a whole new side of me that I didn’t even know existed. I’m passionate, committed and a lot more confident than I’ve ever been and it’s all because of this website. I have people at school that never would have spoken to me before coming up to me and starting conversations about my blog or YouTube channel, I’ve spent many hours interacting with my close friends and family as they help me shoot looks and I’ve become a lot more active online. Blogging has opened my eyes to an alternative career and made me appreciate beauty and style through lots of other bloggers. I’m finally able to act on my passion for fashion (don’t want to sound too much like a Bratz doll…) and express myself for others to see.

I love each and every one of my followers and supporters with all of my heart. This blog and everything that comes with it means the world to me and I can’t wait to bring you even more exciting content in the future!

Outfit Diaries – A Walk In The Park

Autumn is the perfect time for strolling through the park, admiring the gorgeous trees turning from vibrant green into hues of red and gold. I’ve always loved walking in my local park but it’s even better come autumn time as it feels even more beautiful than usual.

As my boyfriend Tom and I set out for relaxed Sunday stroll through the park I channelled the colours of autumn into my outfit and donned my new wine coloured cord skirt. I mentioned that I was searching for a cord skirt in my October Wishlist and I managed to find one in Primark. Unfortunately Primark don’t have an online shop but I’ve found alternatives here and here.

I paired this gorgeous (and very, very comfortable) skirt with a wine coloured floral top with a black cami top underneath. The top was also from Primark but I’ve found an alternative here.

I finished off the look with a camel coloured tailored coat, a necessity for autumn, and black chelsea boots, which I basically live in at this time of year. They’re so versatile and practical I believe that everyone should have a pair!

This was a stylish, yet practical, outfit for my autumnal park adventure and I can’t wait to spend another day exploring the acres of beauty in my local park.

How To Stop Social Media Taking Over Your Life

‘Don’t compare someone else’s final cut to your blooper reel’

In a world where social media means so much, especially to bloggers like me, it can be hard to stop it from taking over your life. It’s very easy to fall into a trap of obsession to do with likes and followers, which takes away from the true purpose of social media – for connecting with people and sharing what you love.

For me, blogging is a way to connect with like minded people and update people with similar tastes in fashion to me with pieces I love and trends I follow. It will never be about the amount of followers or likes I have. Of course, I appreciate every single follow and like, they make my blog more well known to spread my ideas further, but if I didn’t get them I’d still produce content. 

Instead of focusing on how many likes a post gets, focus on the post itself. Does it represent you? If it doesn’t truly represent you and how you truly feel then don’t post it. If this is the case you are more than likely uploading it to impress others, in order to get likes, which isn’t right. Your content should be about you. 

Don’t place all of your self worth on social media. Remind yourself daily that likes don’t really matter. Lots of things can bring down the amount of likes you get, the Instagram algorithm being a main one, and it’s more than likely not your fault if you don’t reach your target. Don’t stress over it. You are more important than likes. Instead focus on liking yourself!

Social media doesn’t define who you are as a person, so no matter how many likes you get use it as a positive platform. Use it for sharing positive, productive content on things you find interesting. Enjoy social media!

Fashion Police – Brand Snobbery

Today I’m here to speak up about brand snobbery. This is a topic I actually feel very passionate about as I think I encounter it quite a lot, not only in life, but within the blogging community. It seems that if you don’t regularly shop at Topshop and River Island then you might as well not have a blog, when in reality they’re out of a lot of people’s budgets, even if they’re technically ‘high street prices’.
