STYLE | A SUMMER'S DAY WALK






Hello lovelies! 

First of all, sorry for the long absence, turns out my 2nd year of uni was a lot more time consuming than I imagined. However, with spring here and summer fast approaching I figured it was time to start posting again.

With the rain finally stopping and the sun coming out I went for a very long stroll alongside the River Cam which was the perfect opportunity to snap up an outfit post.

With my style changing day to day, this outfit is vibing a very casual utility look. The military style paperbag trousers from Topshop I couldn't resist and are super comfy (which can never be a bad thing). I decided to pair them up with my favourite Fila crop top from Urban Outfitters. My orange Converse are literally my favourite pair of shoes, and as soon as I thought about the khaki trousers they came out of the wardrobe. Lastly, my favourite little backpack which is from my parents latest trip to Vietnam/Cambodia completes the look with it looking as if it was made to go with the trousers.

Hope you enjoyed this outfit post and hope you've all had a lovely start to the week!

LIFE | A NEW YEAR

Firstly, I want to a wish a big happy New Year to you all!
Now my assignments are all handed in and I actually have time to breathe, I figured why not spend some time focusing on my blog.

After ending 2016 with an amazing Christmas (which was made even better when I got the camera I'd be wanting forever! - some of my favourite pictures taken from the weekend below)


I think now 2016 is over, it's time to focus on what 2017 means for me, and many others.

As usual, a new year brings the saying "New Year, New Me" back into focus. Myself not being to good at sticking to the phrase past January, (I'm sure like many others) means I've decided to be a bit more realistic with myself a set an ideal 'wishlist' of what I wish 2017 will bring. 

  • The first on list being Hard Work. I know you're all thinking whoever would wish that upon themselves??! but in order for me to achieve a maybe wishful thinking, 1st class honours degree in a years time, hard work is necessary. Therefore, the first thing I want to continue into 2017 is a hard working work ethic.
  • The second is Fun. Alongside the hard work, I want 2017 to be a year of fun. I want to create as many hilarous memories as possible.
  • The third and final thing is Me. I wish 2017 to be a year where I do things for myself and not always just for others. To work on myself, in terms of fitness, health, skills and happiness.
I hope you've enjoyed my ramblings. Feel free to share you're 'wishlist' of 2017 with me in the comments.
I hope you have a lovely week!

LIFE | WHERE HAVE I BEEN?

I'm back. Again.

After creating a habit of coming and going I'm going to try my best to break that and stick around. Along side my return to the blogger-sphere I figured I'd start a 'LIFE' series. In this series I'll chat about my latest doings and findings.
So what have I been doing?

University 


I recently moved into a house with four of my girlfriends and have just started my second year. Going is the best decision I've ever made.

Travelling 


New York City
The Alps 
Going to NYC last year was incredible and will forever be one of my favourite places, my sister going again without me was painful. Earlier this year I also went to France skiing like me and my family do every year!

Working



I also recently got a job at my local Topshop branch! So look forward to the endless outfit posts whilst I spend all of my money in there using my discount (when I should probably be buying food..).


So excited to start blogging again and hope your looking forward to it toooo, hope you all have a good week!

HOW TO | FIND MOTIVATION


I think it's safe to say that all of us at some point or another cannot find an ounce of motivation no matter how hard you try. Whether it be to get a blog post up, do school work, work out, or to finish a job you've been meaning to for a while, it happens to us all. 
With this, I thought that I would give my top 3 tips and tricks that I've been using over the years to help me find both motivation and inspiration.

1.  Pintrest
While this sounds distracting and for me some of the time, is. It works a treat. Need inspiration for a blog post? Search up some ideas that relate to your blog and create a board all about it. For me personally, I love to pin quotes. It helps motivate me as it puts things into perspective and clears my head. I really recommend trying it out, it might just work for you like it does for me.

2. Working Out
This for most is probably the least appealing idea. It used to be for me too until recently when I've finally started working out regularly. It releases endorphins, and endorphins help. For me going for a run only makes me more inspired and motivated to work out more and really helps to clear my head. & we obviously can't forget the health benefits! 

3. Netflix Binge
This is the exact polar opposite to the tip above and is most likely a lot more appealing to you but it is equally as important to remember to allow yourself time to relax. Most of the time I put work off till later because I find myself too stressed thinking about the amount I have to do, to do any! So, because of this I decide not to stress and instead relax for a while. I set an amount of time to watch Netflix (at the moment it's Grey's Anatomy!) and stick to it. Sticking to it is the hard part but if you do, this method really does help.

I really hope that these three top tips that help me help you too. I'd love for you to let me know if they do!
As a side note, if you fancy checking out my Pintrest click here. & also I'd like to say thank you to everyone that both follows and reads my blog. I'm so grateful and astounded at how quickly it has grown. In order to show my appreciation I'm thinking of doing a giveaway when I hit 500 followers and would love for you to let me know what you would like to see in it!

WISHLIST | ASOS


This both lovely and affordable top that retails at £12.00 comes in three different colours (this one being my favourite) and could be styled perfectly with a dark denim jean. The long sleeves make it ideal for winter, although with the Bardot neckline a scarf might be a good idea! 

This comfy sweatshirt from Nike that retails at £45.00 is also ideal for the cold months. With it being Nike it means it comes with a steeper price than other similar sweatshirts that can also be found on Asos at a much lower price, but if you're shamefully a bit of a brand girl like myself and don't mind paying the extra then this sweatshirt is ideal!

These light wash jeans from River Island that retail at £42.00 could be paired with just about anything you have in your closest. The versatileness of them make the price worth it, as well as that with jeans I always believe that in most cases you get what you pay for. For me that means repeat purchase of Topshop's famous Joni Jean. The stylish 'Busted Knee' adds to the look of these jeans and would help finish any look off nicely.

This beautiful wrap blouse from River Island which retails at £34.00 is to die for! It would be perfect either for more casual outfits, for example paired with the jeans which I speak about above or you could even dress it up to be suitable for going out. This top might just be in my basket ready to order! 

Hope you've enjoyed & let me know if there is anything you've personally been lusting for over on Asos!
Have a lovely weekend!
