Velvet Teddy

mac - velvet teddy

I finally caved into the Kylie Jenner velvet teddy hype and purchased the lipstick that everyones currently talking about. I'm already a huge fan of MAC and their lipsticks due to the formulation of their lipsticks, staying power, shades and of course, beautiful simplistic packaging. After my first few outings wearing this i have to say i'm in love with this lipstick. The colour is a gorgeous matte nude which stays on for hours whilst im eating and drinking away, and is perfect for a casual, classy daytime look. I'm also on the hunt for a lipliner to wear with this so if anyone has any suggestions please leave them in the comments! Thankyou!

Grids

jumper - topshop
boots - zara

For some reason i've found culottes have become my favourite item of clothing to wear since Christmas. I found them amazingly comfy whilst sitting and revising all day and i haven't gone near a pair of jeans in over a month, also partly due to laziness, along with padded, cupped bras which also never make it into my daily attire anymore. Is it just me or has turning 21 caused some type of reflection, and i find myself asking why i wear the tight jeans and the uncomfy strapped in padded out bras? I think this year has allowed me to have the confidence to wear what i feel like and not what i feel obliged to wear, and i just want to wear comfy clothes that i can eat a lot of food in! Sorry if you made it to the end of this pointless paragraph! Revision is sending me delirious.

10 Instagram Accounts I'm Currently Obsessed With

FREDERIKKEWAERENS


I've been following Frederikke's instagram for quite a long time now and she always amazes me at her talent for capturing a gorgeous photo, plus i am INSANELY jealous of her bedroom! I would also very much love to know how she edits her photos as they are all gorgeously white and crisp.



Vanessa's life also makes me insanely jealous. lets just say all these instagram accounts i've featured are just portals that i sit and look through everyone's amazing lives whilst i'm in a lecture theatre! seriously, i swear everytime vanessa uploads a photo she has travelled to some amazing place on the other side of the world, where the weather is insane! She also manages to pull the best poses, which if i were to attempt...i'd probably be laughed at by many people (including myself).

TRIANGL SWIMWEAR


If you haven't seen this amazing bikinis all over the internet.. where have you been?! i've literally been lusting over one for so long, however with no money and no holiday currently booked, i've took it upon myself to just look at gorgeous models wearing the bikinis i wish i could wear!



This account definitely is a guilty pleasure. I seem to always be fascinated by amazing nature shots and how they can be taken on the same planet i live on, and how one day i'm going to travel to all these places (hopefully) and see them for myself.



Pholondon is a store which i believe is opening in March this year and it really has been a long time coming. I started following them when they only had a few hundred followers, and their inspiration shots and mood boards are amazing and i hope their store is going to fit the same trend.



This lady also takes beautiful photos and her casual simplistic style is always on point.



I think everyone i know who has instagram follows ASOS. how can you not? ASOS is definitely within my top 3 online stores due to its diversity in clothing, amount of clothes to choose from and also just how faultlessly stylish and current all of the items are. If i could, i would buy it all! ASOS upload insanely fashionable bloggers, models and dogs rocking the latest styles.

BEFITBABES


This is my past, present and probably future 'fitspiration' account to follow. this account provides photos of women with amazing bodies, transformations, healthy snacks and fitness workouts to help you improve your body...which i will definitely start tomorrow.

FIGTNY


This lady really does outdo me on the monochrome life. She takes the most stunning photos, all with the black and white theme which makes her feed look flawless.

SAMANTHA ISTELLA


This too is an account i'm always visiting and looking for inspiration on how to take amazing instagram photos, as i love the simple, minimal styled theme running through her whole feed.

I thought i would post something a little bit different today which i've been meaning to do for a while now. Recently-over the past 2 weeks or so, i seem to have found myself becoming increasingly and worryingly obsessed with instagram. I don't know why its taken me this long to realise my love affair with this app but theres a huge correlation between discovering my love for it and the start of revision week/exam period. I gather so much inspiration from it and have been loving looking through amazing feeds, which has inspired me to become way more active on it, and hopefully take photos which will also inspire. So i've shared the 10 accounts i visit the most for fashion inspiration so please give me a follow here as i would love to check all your accounts out also! I've only been able to link half of them on here as the web instagram site is impossible to navigate! however i've left all the platform names for you to go have a nosey. Have a lovely evening!

Girls On Film

running shoes: zara

I caved and bought my first pair of culottes. I've been lusting at other fashion bloggers wearing them for a while but i always thought they were a bit 'out there' for me. What also added to my self consciousness was being laughed at by girls in the street and library whilst wearing this (boo). However i've come to learn that everyone has their individual styles and if you like it, wear it. I'm a huge fan of wearing all the same colour but playing around with textures and shapes so this sort of outfit was right up my street! I also cannot explain to you how COMFY this outfit is! I could eat a million sunday roasts and still my food baby will be all tucked away comfortably and no need to change pants. Also, both these amazing items are in the sale! Hurry!

Checked Blazer

blazer: missguided
top: primark
trousers: primark
boots: zara

Today's outfit was just a majorly casual one for the 7 hours i was sat at a desk revising for my exam tomorrow!! My lovely housemate Alice, left me a present outside my bedroom door the other day and it was this gorgeous casual blazer from missguided as a belated birthday present as she hasn't been around. She (and everyone that bought me clothes) was so nervous about buying me clothes that she showed my boyfriend and my other best friend it beforehand as apparently i'm very particular about them, which i had no idea about!  I guess i must've developed it whilst having this blog, as my style has developed as the blog has. Anyways i hope you've all had a lovely weekend staying inside and away from the cold!

January Blogger Babes






To break up the outfit posts, i thought i would share this the blogs i have been absolutely loving reading (pretending im not dying inside of jealousy at their clothes!) this month. Theres only three this month as i haven't physically had the time to go around and read loads of new blogs like i usually would do as revision is still not letting me have a life, and will be for the next 2 weeks. Anyway I hope you love these blogs as much as i do and please leave me your links down below also as i want to catch up on reading new blogs for after exams!

Kendall Jenner Inspired

jumper: zara

The other day i saw a gorgeous photo of kendall jenner wearing knee high boots and a sweater... so i went and bought knee high boots to wear with a long sweater. These missguided beauties are one of the comfiest pairs of boots i have EVER worn, and i've had so many compliments on them! The material is a gorgeous and soft faux suede that i could actually sit and stroke them for hours, no lie. I really wish i could've photographed these without tights, but the bitter cold here just forced me to take them without developing hypothermia!

I don't know about you but now christmas has come and gone, i'm sick of the cold and already counting down the days till summer! I've already been scouring the web for inspiration for warmer months-wear. However i found a few images for winter wear inspo and thought i would share them along with some summer wear to keep you going if you're in a similar situation to me! Sorry its just a quick post from me today as I'm in full blown revision mode still!

Sleeveless Obsession


blouse: topshop
hat: ebay
trousers: topshop
boots: zara

I probably couldn't have picked a windier day to take these shots so sorry for nearly every photo having me holding onto my hat- it was a necessity and blew off without me doing it! Theres got to be a recurrent theme (and addiction going on) from the past 3 posts as each one has featured a sleeveless blazer! I've found them a godsend recently as its too cold in the library for regular tops, jumpers make me itchy and sweaty and no one wants to wear their coat inside. I've found that sleeveless blazers definitely keep you that content temperature whilst in a cold-ish room. I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend!

In The Navy


DRESS: MISSGUIDED
KIMONO: TOPSHOP
SLEEVLESS JACKET: CHOIES
BOOTS: ZARA
FUR HEADBAND: PRIMARK

This sleeveless jacket is the and WILL be the only the item of coloured clothing that i can see myself wearing in the distant future. I have worn it before on the blog, however its been shoved to the back of the wardrobe and i have recently rediscovered my love for it! I'm so sorry nothing i'm wearing can be linked, however my procrastination has got the better of me and during revision breaks i think i've spent a BOMB on new clothes just purely due to boredom. Also, i've been trying to find a way to style this Missguided day summer dress for ages during winter as I still can't face the tight jeans after the amount i have consumed over the christmas period!

Distractions

SLEEVELESS BLAZER: SHEINSIDE
TROUSERS: TOPSHOP
RUNNING SHOES: ZARA

I've finally managed to upload my first outfit post of 2015! I've been trying to reuse and restyle of few old favourites as the post christmas poor-ness has definitely hit me hard. The first week of the new year for me has been amazingly dull, as always since the age of 17 due to the dreaded exam period. However i always seem to find that i post on my blog more often during exam period which says a lot about my procrastination levels right now. 

What have you all been doing the first week of the new year? please tell me its better than constant revision all day everyday!
