Hello Lovelies!

Usually I take a lot of my inspiration from the seasons, with cute pastel palettes for Spring, tropical touches for Summer and cosy blankets for Winter. But this past week... well it's been very rainy and also humid. London has been like an awol rainforest, and hasn't felt like Summer or even Winter. So I've taken inspiration from the rain and gone VERY blue this week. Enjoy! 

Lush | The Big Sleep Jelly Bomb

Hello Lovelies!

It's been a while since there's been a Lush review around these parts, but have no fear you will be seeing quite a few over the next few weeks. Those who saw my latest Lush haul video will know that Lush has discontinued a few products *sad face* including two of my faves: Frozen Bath Bomb and Fizzbanger. However that means that they've also released some exciting new products...

Hello Lovelies!

Recently I've been going a bit awol with spending. This girl has bought too many magazines, Lush products and coffees so writing up a homeware post is definitely throwing me into temptation. For this week I've focused on earthy tones, and forest vibes with a quirky modern twist. All of the products are actually from one site this week: Red Candy, who have the brilliant slogan: shut up, beige! That tells you all you need to know...

Lifestyle | The Start of A New Chapter...

Hello Lovelies!

This weekend I have found myself very much in the company of my own thoughts. I am the queen of over-thinkers anyway, but extremely dodgy internet connection, long country walks with Flossie and the absence of my boyfriend who’s away on a mini break have left me in a deep thought quarantine.

Life at the moment feels very much like one chapter has closed, and another has begun. After finishing my exams, I quickly got an internship in social media that has now been turned into a permanent job as a Marketing Assistant. My anxieties about getting a job, and more importantly fitting in at that job have suddenly flown out of the window and the pages of my life are turning over effortlessly. I will also graduate this Friday with a 2:1, and leave education for the first time in almost all my life behind me.

Fashion | Finding The Statement Ankle Boots Of Dreams

Hello Lovelies!

When it comes to fashion I am exceptionally picky, and when it comes to shoes I'm a whole other level of picky. I'm like Goldilocks - my shoes have to be just right or there's no way they're for me. Now, my latest love has been ankle boots. I cannot for the life of me stop buying them even though it's Summer and it's JUST TOO HOT. 

What I've noticed is that I only seem to buy my shoes from one place these days, and that's Topshop. The main reason is that I get blisters so easily, and if I get shoes that are even vaguely uncomfortable it's like a foot massacre. Topshop shoes however have never had any problems with my wide feet, so I can definitely vouch for their comfiness.

The pair on the right are my absolute favourite boots at the moment, and gosh I am so sad they are starting to fall apart. What I love about this pair of shoes is that 1) they are elastic (so no silly zips), 2) THAT STUD DETAIL THO and 3) The heel is the perfect height, not too high, not too short. Honestly I don't know if you can relate but isn't it the worst when you start to realise you'll need to get rid of your favourite pair of shoes? Definitely think I'm still in denial... 

The beautiful embroidered boots of dreams on the left are beautiful, but not so practical. To be honest I love them but I hardly wear them because I'm so scared they'll get ruined. That said they are the perfect shoes to make a casual outfit pop. When I first bought these shoes a girl chased after to me to ask where they were from so you can tell, they're really nice boots. My only issue with them is the zip at the back which never wants to close - so annoying!

Also, shoot me but I'm kind of over every shoe I see being embroidered. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE ALL THE EMBROIDERY, but is anyone else bored? 

The pair on the left I saw in my lunch break in a Topshop advert, and I KNEW I needed them in my life. They're basically the taupe, rose gold heart boots of dreams that are also totally impractical. Probably should have got the black version because adult life decisions, but they were just too pretty to say no to. 

My other pair were a complete sale steal at only £15.00! I'd actually seen these boots before and been a bit unsure but there was no way I couldn't get them for that price. I love that they're a bit different. They're pink but more of a salmon than a super girly pink, and I love the cute little floral details. 

Oh and Topshop seemed to like my snaps of these two pairs, so there's that! Wish Topshop credited their pictures but hey ho that's big brands for you. *They did ask for permission to use the photos though!

Basically as you can tell I really love Topshop shoes. They're comfy and a bit different, so I can't recommend them enough.

Have a great weekend lovelies! Love Vicky x

Lifestyle | When Does Editing Go Too Far?

Hello Lovelies! 

For most of us bloggers, if we learn anything about photography, it will be that editing is our best friend. It can take a photo from looking meh to amazing with only a few tiny adjustments. Editing is just a part of the magic that goes into conjuring up a beautiful, eye pleasing shot. 

Home | The Monday Home Edit (10th July - 16th July)

Hello Lovelies! Today I'm feeling super under the weather so this post has been written in a slight sleepy haze. Anyways, this week I've been loving homeware pieces that are a bit more traditional with a modern twist. Enjoy! Picks are from Paperchase, Chase and Wonder and Papier.

Lifestyle | Why I Love Pride

Hello Lovelies! Years and years ago when I was in primary school I remember two of the boys in school coming over to me and my friends. One of them asked me, "are you gay?" to which I replied no, and they started chuckling and saying but "gay means loving men, so you like girls." Of course this was your standard 'banter' in which being gay was a throwaway insult. I don't think it was until years after that, that I really understood properly what being gay was. Being gay was just one of those things that people didn't talk about.

Hello Lovelies! Today's home edit is all about a simple colour scheme with lots of fun little touches of colour and quirk. Picks are from House of Fraser, OhhDeer and H&M home!

Lifestyle | How I Deal With Being Tired All The Time

Hello Lovelies! Through my late teens right up to now when I've just ventured into my twenties, tiredness had always been a really big problem for me. The reason why is in short, my iron deficiency. Tiredness is a really frustrating thing to deal with, especially when you're juggling a relationship, a blog, an internship and Love Island (sorry I'm addicted too!). Sometimes you can feel super frustrated with yourself especially if you're bagging those hours of sleep you need, but tiredness is one of those things that we all deal with. So I thought I'd write a post all about feeling all ZZZ and how I deal with it.
