My Faux-chella! Inspired By TickPick.

Monday, 30 May 2016

Today I am back with a festival inspired post... Lets call it Faux-chella. Its basically a fake (sadly, haha) festival with my ideal line up of bands and artists! This poster was created by TickPick, a great company that allows you to buy, sell and bid on concert tickets. A pretty handy website when you come to think of it. They offer a wide variety from concerts, to music festivals and they even have NFL tickets for all of you sporty guys and gals. The season is coming so snap up your tickets! 

So, onto the Faux-chella! My line up is pretty unique I guess... I haven't gone with a theme or anything. I have literally just gone with bands and artists that I am loving at the minute. 

The first has got to be The xx. I could listen to these forever! I mentioned a song of theirs in my 3...Songs post. I love their old stuff the best, its just so relaxing. 

I love every song Coldplay have ever released. Again, I find them pretty relaxing to listen to but I love their more up beat sounds too. Errrrbody loves a bit of Coldplay.

The 1975 would fit in great in a festival atmosphere. I'd love to see these live one day, maybe at a festival ey ;)

I'd slow things down a bit with Adele. I know she isn't the typical festival entertainment but I do think it would be magical! I love her new song Send My Love as it is a bit more unusual for her, but its amazing!
I enjoy The Weeknds older stuff a little more than the new music he has been releasing, so I would deffo get him to play that. After all it is my music festival, right? Haha! Anyway, listen to this... This is the stuff I like of his.

These two. I wish they'd just get married and have babies already! I'd get Drake & Rihanna to preform together because they are just heavenly. Their new albums are pretty good too!

So, let me know what your prefect line up would be!? And don't forget to check out TickPick for all of your ticket needs!

Summer Essentials: Fashion.

Monday, 23 May 2016

So its Summer essentials time again! This time I thought I would separate this post in to 3 categories; fashion, beauty & food. So, to kick it off I thought I would share my fashion must haves! 

The first being, white tops. In summer I live in white tops! I swap my thick, woollen knits for cool white basics. I recently picked this flared sleeved top from Next. I hadn't been into Next for agesss but I popped in recently and found this gem for just £22, bargain!

Another love are Birkenstocks. I had the cheapy ones from Primark last year and I lived in them! So, I thought that I would invest in some proper ones this year. I picked up these ones from TK Maxx for £30 (well, I had a £15 gift card too so technically I got them for £15!!).

And finally... sunnies. I have a decent collection of glasses now (you can see a few of them in my old sunglasses collection) but these have to be my favourites. I got them from a vintage shop in London for just a fiver. They fit my face really well and the shape is super flattering.

What are your summer go to's?

Currently Loving: Culotte/Wide Leg Jumpsuits.

Sunday, 15 May 2016

I am currently loving culotte jumpsuits. I find them really comfortable, easy to throw on and flattering on my body which are my musts for a Summer outfit.

The first culottes jumpsuit is from New Look. I got this a few weeks back, but its still available here (was £22, now £13!!). I first saw this on their Instagram and instantly fell in love with the wide leg and dark floral. I've not figured out what kind of shoes I'd wear with it yet, so if you have any suggestions please let me know!

The second pair are from Primark. I was actually really surprised to find something like this in Primark, I love the stuff they have in at the mo! Anyways, this was just £15 and although I look like a human cactus/gardener in it I am going to be wearing it a lot this Summer.

Do you like the culottes trend?

A Little Update.

Tuesday, 10 May 2016

Today I thought that I would post a little update. I have not been blogging as much as I would have liked to recently because I have just been so busy, I literally had no free days for myself, never mind to sit down and write. So, where to start ey?

I've finally started my driving lessons! Wuheyy! I have been meaning to start for so long now, but I just haven't have the courage or confidence. I had my first lesson today and I have definitely caught the bug now. 

Work work work work work work (Riri reference there ;))
I have been working a lot more. I've been doing some overtime as I want to save for a new laptop and camera, to better my blog. I feel like I have hit a dead end with my blog so I am thinking new equipment will up my game again. I also want to do a lot more with my YouTube channel but at the mo I don't have the access to the equipment I need at home. So yeah I've been working loads more at the moment.

When I say travelling I mean seeing family. I have been to see my mum a few times (you might have seen the London piccies on Insta). Next week I am going down to Birmingham for a few days to see my brother, sister-in-law and baby niece which I am super excited about!

Etsy & Depop(@poppyykayy)
I finally opened my Etsy store! Check it out here. When I get some time I plan on making a few more hangers, I have a few ideas floating around in my head so I am eager to make them! I am also thinking of adding them to my Depop page too. Anyway, I'll keep ya'll updated.

Yeah, so that's about it! Let me know what you guys have been up to. You planning anything exciting?

Aveeno Skin Relief Lotion.

Friday, 6 May 2016

For the past 2/3 months or so I have suffered with dry skin. It was mainly on my arms, chest, my forehead and around my mouth. My face was so dry that it was getting to the point that my foundation would just flake off... like I could literally just touch my head and it was like dandruff. It might sound petty but it was really getting me down. I am not a big lotion user, which is bad I know(!), until I heard about Aveeno. Someone mentioned it to me so I went out, parted with the £5 and I haven't looked back since. It does what it says on the bottle, literally instant relief (and results in my case). I used this on my face, chest and elbows mainly, the biggest result was deffo on my face. Are you even meant to use lotion on your face? Oh well, It cleared up the dry skin near my mouth immediately which was great! I didn't feel like the joker any more haha! I started to notice that my foundation started to go on a lot easier and my skin started the have that 'airbrushed' effect again. 
I have been sharing this find with everyone! I've got my mum hooked on it, my sister, my friends...everyone! Its been heavily tested so I thought it was about time that I shared it on my blog. This is just my opinion though, like I say every time, I am not a skin care pro or whatever... in fact I am far from it! I just want to share my opinion. 

So basically it is amazing! It smells lovely (a subtle hint of creamy oats), it soaks into the skin straight away, it isnt greasy at all and the 200ml will last a good while! 
I havent got a bad word to say to be honest, its honestly changed my skin for the better!

Have you ever tried Aveeno lotion?

See the little Etsy tab there? MY SHOP IS OPEN! I have only listed one design but there are 4 of them available. I'd love it if you'd check them out :)

3...April Favourites.

Monday, 2 May 2016

To finish off my (attempt at) 3 posts a week thing I had going on I thought I would post about my 3 April favourites (I really like the number 3 don't I?!).

My first fave has been blogging, oh how cliché! But I have actually really enjoyed it this month. I've enjoyed planning the posts (I have been super inspired!), taking the pictures and typing away. Although I haven't posted 3 times a week every week, I have posted more than I usually do. That deserves a gold star for trying, right? 

My second favourite of this month has been wearing hoop earrings. I don't even leave the house with out any in any more! The three pairs above are from Topshop, H&M and a local jewellers, but you can find them everywhere now a days.

And finally, this little W7 quad. I cannot for the life of me remember where I picked this up, but I vaguely remember it only being a few pounds (I've linked it on Amazon anyway). I use this everyday, just to add a splash of colour to my lids. The white shade is also great for highlighting the brow bone and tear duct too. 

Have you been loving anything this month?
