Tassel Earrings.

Sunday, 14 May 2017

I have fallen in love with statement earrings (aka Pat Butcher earrings), especially in tassel form. They add so much more to an otherwise boring outfit. My obsession started when I saw Alex from The Frugality wearing them, she did a whole post here. I've also seen Megan from Pages By Megan supporting them with her sassy outfits.

The pair I am wearing are just a cheap pair from Amazon, they were around £3. I wanted to experiment with a smaller pair, just to make sure I could pull off the trend, before investing in some bolder ones. By bolder I mean big red ones... I just have this image of ruby red tassel earrings, a gingham shirt and bright red lipstick, dreamy!

Do you like statement earrings?

3... April Favourites.

Tuesday, 9 May 2017

I feel like my favourites are getting a bit repetitive now, but hey it shows how much I love these products right? Also, they are always a bit late aren't they? I mean it's the 9th of May already... where is this year going?! Anyway, lets get into my faves.

So my first fave is the YSL Black Opium perfume. I ALWAYS go on about this, I've loved it for years now (I did a full post on it here). Since Feb I have been using my Jimmy Choo perfume but I was just going through it too quickly, so I decided to go back to my YSL for a little bit. I fell in love with it all over again. In short the scent is very sophisticated but still very sweet.

My next fave is kind of what I covered in my last post. I said I was really loving gold, and that included rediscovering my gold Casio again. I have a silver one which I wear all the time but my gold one is the original, the one I got first for my 18th from my sissy. It is slightly worn now but that just adds to the look of it I guess.

And finally, my love of magazines is back! I used to buy Elle religiously, eagerly waiting each month for the new issue. I don't know what happened but I just stopped getting them, I always bloody do that don't I?!! But I love em again, I love flicking through the pages and getting new inspo. And I am really enjoying using them as props and backdrops for my blog photos, it's a win win situation!

Did you have any April favourite?

Playing With Shadows.

Friday, 5 May 2017
Top-Asos // Jeans-Primark (similar) // Shoes-Birkenstocks // Necklace-H&M (similar)
This is probably going to be one of the most useless posts I have written to date, but I loved how the photos turned out (for a change) so I had to share.

So recently I feel like my photography style has changed. It does every now and again, I seem to just naturally drift into a different direction with my style. For the most part it has always been bright white with minimal or muted colour. I still love that kind of look and it will probably remain like that over on my Instagram a little while longer, but as for my blog I am changing it up.

I have started to embrace the shadows around my house. On my stairs/landing the most beautiful shadows land on the floor and walls. I had a mini photo shoot (sad, I know) and loved the way the images turned out. As well as playing with shadows I have come to love warmer tones, like browns, beiges and gold. My images tend to get 'cold' looking with all the white and monochrome, so warming them up gives more of a sophisticated look... thats what I think anyway haha!

I was mostly inspired by Eimear from The EVB Edit. She shows a lot of the behind the scenes on her Instagram stories. She is always creating shadows and using different textures for her back drops, her images turn out stunning. Kate from Kate La Vie inspired me a lot too. I love the way she has a cluttered but organised theme and her images always look 'warmer' with the wooden and golden accents she adds to her images.

Who inspires your photography style?

3 Trends I Am Loving.

Monday, 1 May 2017

It is currently 22:34 on a Sunday evening. I have been attempting to write this post for around an hour now and nothing is coming out... But I am determined to get something up on this little blog of mine, even if it only includes crappy IPhone pictures and a minimal amount of writing. So anyway, lets talk about the 3 trends I am currently loving.

Come to think of it, it's not really a trend is it? I mean golden jewellery is timeless right? Up until now I have (more or less) always been a silver gal but warmer golden tones are just calling my name, especially now the weather is warming up. I've even been buying gold homeware bits too. The little leaf dish above is from Primark, it was only £3. 

Probably one of my favourite trends of the mo, layering vests on top of t-shirts. I know it is a love/hate thing, but I seriously love it. Layered in the right way with a pair of raw hem, blue jeans is a match made in heaven. I am especially loving slogan or graphic t-shirts peeping out from under a sheer cami, yaaas!

Gingham is baaack. It never really phased me before but this time around I am loving it. My collection is growing, with a lot of the items being summer pieces. I don't really wear colour so a pattern like this is a nice alternative.

So, what are your favourite trends this season?

Oh, and look! I am almost at 200 followers on Bloglovin! As soon as I hit the big 200 I am going to do a giveaway, so keep an eye out.
