Hi lovelies! When I think of 'Street Style', I think of super casual clothes such as Flannel Shirts, Leather Jackets, Trainers etc, but as I live in Essex, I like to think we make street style a little more glam! This leopard print dress could not possibly be more Essex and paired with a leather jacket and trainers makes the overall look much more casual and perfect for everyday. We can't forget to add the girly Essex though and the fur collar on this jacket, the glitter on the trainers and gorgeous studded bag add a touch of glam to a casual outfit.
I absolutely love ASOS for any kind of outfit, but I think they do Street Style/ Casual wear so well. Like I said, if you want to add a different touch to your outfit be it a girly touch, a tough edge or boyish vibes, they really have something for absolutely everyone. Needless to say I've bought several of my Christmas presents on ASOS this year!
What do you like to wear on a casual day out?

Hi lovelies! With just over a month to go until Christmas, I thought it'd be the perfect time to get started with some little countdown to Christmas giveaways! Last year, I did a few mini giveaways leading up to Christmas and they went down really well, so I've decided that this year, I'm definitely going to do it again! This giveaway will run for a week, followed by another giveaway next Sunday, then the next Sunday and so on, until the final Sunday before Christmas (December 21st).
For this giveaway, I wanted to give something that I really love. I was sent this gift set from Lanolips and thought it would be perfect for a giveaway as I have both of the products myself and absolutely love them, so I thought I'd do a little mini review of them both to let you all know how fab they are! I've already reviewed the Lanolips lipbalm here. so I won't go on and on, if you don't want to read the full review though, all you need to know is that it is incredible. It's honestly the most moisturising lip balm I've ever used, an absolute necessity in the winter, it's all natural and healing for chapped lips, amazing! The hand cream is just as fab and also all natural and medical grade and is incredibly soothing on sore, dry hands - which is always great in the cold weather.
So, you probably all want me to cut to the chase, how do you enter? Well, as usual, it's as easy as filling out the Rafflecopter form below (I do check that all entries are legit, so no being sneaky!!) Good luck!
If you think there's someone in your life who would love this set as a Christmas gift, you can view it online here!

Hi lovelies! I have another Christmas gift guide for you all today and you may notice that it's a bit of a special one! Today, I thought I'd do a Christmas Gift Guide for a Disney lover! In my opinion, Disney is timeless and despite it being sort of aimed at Children, I think Disney is something close to many people's hearts as it was a huge part of almost everyone's childhood. Being a massive Disney lover myself (if you saw my last post, you'll know that I even called my puppy Belle, after the Disney princess!), I'd be thrilled to receive any of these gorgeous gifts!
I think this Let it go Necklace from Zentosa is just beautiful, it's perfect for the season as it's got the little snowflake, but isn't too over the top and too obviously a Frozen necklace, making it a 'grown up' Disney piece. I think a new phone case makes a fab stocking filler for anyone, but this Aristocats Phone Case is just perfect for a Disney fan. This one is from eBay, which is where I get all my cases from, as they're so inexpensive and there's so much choice. If you type in 'Disney iPhone case (or whatever phone you have!), there are pages and pages of cute cases to choose from.
For the ultimate Disney fan, this Mickey Mouse Watch from ASOS would be a fab gift. It comes in a gorgeous little Mickey shaped Disney tin too which is super cute! In honour of my adorable little Chi Pup, I had to feature a Belle item and I think this Belle Bauble from the Disney is beautiful. They have all the Dsney Princesses available so you can pick your favourite! Also from the Disney store, I think this Aurora Mug is just lovely. Again, they have all the Princesses and several different styles of mugs, but I do think a cute printed mug makes a fab gift this time of year as it's definitely hot drink season!
On the subject of the colder season, this Bambi Sweatshirt is just perfect to snuggle up in and is an absolute bargain from F&F at Tesco. And while you're snuggling up, why not cuddle up with a soft toy like this beauitful Rapunzel Doll, I'm not gonna lie, I have the Rapunzel and Elsa soft dolls from the Disney Store and I love them, never too old! To match the cute sweatshirt, these Bambi Knickers from Topshop will make a fab stocking filler for a Disney lover. Finally, this Simba Necklace from Zentosa is just amazing. If you're buying for someone who loves the Lion King, I'm really not sure you could get anything better (or cuter) than this, adorable!
What do you think? Would you like to receive some Disney gifts like these this year? Which is your fave?

Hi lovelies! You may have noticed I've not been blogging so regularly the past few days and those of you who follow me on twitter and instagram will already know why! The past few days, I have been through the process of visiting, buying and bringing home the brand new love of my life, Belle! Belle is a sandy coloured Long Haired Chihuahua puppy and she is just beautiful. I've never actually owned a dog before, but I've always grown up around them in the family and have wanted one of my own for so long!
We bought her home yesterday and so far, she's been settling in really well. For a chihuahua, (who have a reputation for being very yappy little dogs!) she's very quiet and so far hasn't barked at all. She's super playful but seems to love nothing more than curling up on our laps for a cuddle and a nap! She already seems to have gotten the idea of doing her 'business' on her puppy training papers, as she can't go outside just yet!
Belle has already met lots of new friends and family and has been very sociable with everyone she meets, although she's already following me around everywhere I go! She's very happy to meet new human friends, but until she's had all her jabs she won't be meeting any furry friends just yet! As she's so tiny, you really have to watch your step when walking around, as she likes to be right by your feet at all times!
I'm sure you'll be seeing much, much more of my little Princess popping up in posts from time to time (okay, all the time), I can feel myself becoming a crazy dog lady already!
What do you think of little Belle? If you own a Chihuahua, any tips for training would be fab!

Hi Lovelies! Today, I wanted to introduce you to one of my current Advertisers (you may have seen the banner in my sidebar!), Pulse Light Clinic. The Pulse Light Clinic in London is a clinic that specialises in Rosacea (a form of acne), Skin Rejuvenation for brighter, younger looking skin, Laser Hair Removal and Tattoo Removal.
As a beauty therapist, hair removal is pretty much a part of my every day life - be it my own hair or someone elses!! While waxing is a great, long lasting method and much better than shaving (in my opinon!), for those who have a lot of hair on places like the legs, underarms and bikini line, it can be a bit of a pain to do every single day.
While waxing does eventually start to lessen the amount of hair, can you imagine never having to shave or wax again? If the idea of no more boring and sometimes painful hair removal sounds good to you, then Laser Hair Removal may be something you'd like to consider. Unlinke many other laser hair removal clinics, the Pulse Light Clinic offers three different types of hair removal, including one for light and stubborn hair, which many clinics don't actually offer.
Pulse Light Clinic offer Laser Hair Removal in London, more details can be found on this here.
What do you think? Is Laser Hair Removal something you'd consider?

Hi lovelies! I don't know about you guys, but I've been absolutely loving Taylor Swift's newest album '1989' and this may just be me, but sometimes, when I'm listening to songs I think about what the song really means and what it should have been called. If you haven't heard the album, then, honestly, this post really won't mean all that much to you, but if you have then I hope you enjoy reading my alternative song titles! (No hate intended, I love the album!)
Am I right?

Hi lovelies! Today, I'm taking part in the 'Sure Festival Blogger Challenge', you're probably thinking, it's November, Festival season is well and truly over! Well, Sure are teaming up with bloggers to keep the Festival spirit going into the Autumn and Winter! Sure are one of my favourite deodorant brands (and the compressed cans like this one are perfect for travelling, not only to festivals but anywhere at all!) so I was keen to get involved!
They set a challenge to create your own floral crown - a festival staple - and they sent over all the bits and pieces I'd need to create my own! While I absolutely adored the pink pink roses (and trust me, they have found their place in my room!!), I wanted to make my floral crown a transitional one and have made mine autumn themed! I think the deep purple and red tones are perfect for the time of year, but little white flowers and white roses keep the festival feeling! I've never worn a floral crown before, but I do really like this and it definitely helps bring a little bit of summer into the winter time!
I hope you all like my Festival Challenge entry, thank you Sure for helping me get involved!
I really enjoyed making my own floral crown for this challenge and will definitely be making more of these in the summer, let me know what you think, have you ever made anything like this?
