Bare Faced Confidence.

Why is it that as girls, we struggle with embracing our natural beauty with bare faced confidence? I don’t wear a lot of make-up but the idea of being completely bare faced is daunting and I think a lot of you are with me on that. Maybe its the generation we live in. Our lives are almost entirely online! Or maybe its just that we prefer to add make-up to boost our confidence. So for today, I decided that my focus should be on stripping it back to nothing but my make-up free face, in HD, on the internet. Over the last few months, my skin has become a priority because not only do I want to be blemish free but the anti-ageing products need to step in too. I know I’m only 25 but lets be honest – anti-ageing products are to prevent ageing before it starts, not once…

Things I Wish Someone Told Me About Blogging Full Time.

Blogging isn’t something that has always been considered as a job. If we take a peek back to 2013 when Copper Garden first started, blogging couldn’t generate an income and was purely a community of likeminded people posting their outfits and beauty purchases online. I had my blog purely as a form of procrastination and a way to document my outfits, as did many other girls. To this day it still baffles me that the day I decided to create a website was the day that I unknowingly created myself a job for the future. Crazy right? I have now been a blogging full time for a year and as much as I wouldn’t change it for the world, the last couple of months, I’ve been thinking about what being a ‘full time blogger’ means to me. Every time someone asks me how I managed to take my blog to…

Trying To Love The Baker Boy Trend.

Hats are something you either suit, or you don’t. You know sometimes you see a girl that just suits every style? Beanie, cap, floppy, baker boy.. you name it and she suits it. I want to be that girl. The baker boy hat used to remind of Peaky Blinders or Victorian guys in the mines (I can’t be the only one that loved looking at the pictures rather than listening in History class?!). But recently the baker boy hat become a style that we’re all wearing and one that can take an outfit from a solid 5 to an 8/10. Its kind of like a replacement for the fedora which has been exhausted over previous seasons. JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser. Reactivate it to view this content. Now this particular baker boy hat comes from Amazon with a leather strap buckled around the front and a really cosy…

The Perfect Blonde Balayage from Live True London.

Its about time that I started talking about my hair, isn’t it? Most of my Instagram comments mention my hair in some way.. regardless of what my actual post is about. I guess its the length that catches the eye but also the current gorgeous colour. I take absolutely no credit for any of it because Paco is the one that made it look so rich and healthy. Taking my hair from lions mane to princess tresses..literally. Me and hairdressers haven’t got on for quite a few years. I had a pretty botch job in a walk-in salon 4 years ago that completely put me off. My hair was pretty damaged and when I asked for a trim with layers, they cut a few inches off. I was left with such choppy layers that you could see chunks of hair missing. It resulted in hair extensions being a permanent fixture for around 18…

5 Changes You Can Expect To See On Copper Garden.

All of my social media platforms have been a constant chatter of ‘Copper 2.0’. I decided that it was about time that I sat down to write about the changes so you know exactly what is happening in my world. A few things have already been creeping through but for the most part – I’ve kept pretty quiet and worked hard behind the scenes. Before I get into all of the changes, you need to know that my life is a little spontaneous. I don’t stay in one place for too long and change is a constant reoccurrence. Whether thats my location, likes, dislikes or even the direction of my brand. Change One | Making YouTube More Style/Travel Focused. My YouTube channel has been a little neglected for the last 18 months and it honestly fills me with guilt and sadness. YouTube was the first stepping stone of Copper Garden and one that I…

The Check Blazer | Ways To Style

I wonder how many of you remember back in the day when I’d film ‘ways to style’ videos on a regular basis? When most of my videos were filmed in the garden with a tripod and signature few poses? Yep, those ones. Wellllll, I’m bringing them back (but better) and kind of excited about the coming changes! I’ve been talking on my Instagram about ‘Copper 2.0’ and it’s starting this week on all platforms. Think more editorial, more interesting posts and the likes. There will be a post all about the changes coming up so keep your eyes peeled! But that’s a story for another time, for right now let’s talk about the check blazer. A style that’s fronting the AW17 trends and one I can’t get enough of since my London Fashion Week post. The one shown in this post is from Find but I’ve linked a few of…

Health and Wellbeing Upgrades.

Moving to London was like a fresh start and I decided to use it as a time to not only explore a new city, but to really invest in myself again. I’ve been drinking more water, upgrading my skincare routine, looking into yoga classes and overall just thinking about my personal wellbeing. In a 2016 Pinterest study it was proven that 59% of us want to make positive changes to our lifestyle as soon as September hits.. and I’m one of them. Essentially giving myself a little life overhaul and sharing my healthier life choices with Robinsons.  The main step was refreshing my diet, choosing to cook meals from scratch instead of the quickest hunger fix possible. Working from home helps quite a lot when it comes to my food choices because I have a little more time to cook. One of my favourite brunch ideas is granola with berries…

All Black Gym Clothing | Keeping it Capsule.

This is kind of a stripped back outfit post.. for your gym wardrobe so listen up fellow 'I buy more gym clothes than I need' gals because you'll love this one.. 'Mostly black with a hint of grey or white' is pretty much my style summed up. I'm a creature of habit and rarely venture into the realm of colour, even in the gym. I love keeping to the monochrome spectrum because there is nothing worse than owning 3 specific gym outfits that don't work together – much rather own a few pieces that can be interchanged. Now I'm not a fitness fanatic but I love working out and keeping myself healthy. The buzz from aching muscles and endorphin rush are worth the early start or tough session. I might be alone in this, you might not agree but whether you're a part-time cardio gal or love lifting weights.. you'll…

Day to Night Style | The Wrap Around Dress.

Do you ever experience the days when you’ve got a bursting diary that requires a couple of dress codes with no time to change outfit? Yep, me too! This ‘day to night’ wrap dress look started with a breakfast event, leading on to a coffee-fuelled meeting and ending at the theatre with friends. Essentially – a day that needed more than one look with no time to go home in between. I ended up throwing some heeled boots in my bag and the overall look changed. And thats when this on-going series came to mind. The wrap dress is a style thats been everywhere the last few months. Its a LFW staple and seems to feature on my Instagram feed on the daily. I’ve been loving for a while and this wrap dress from Wear All is the most versatile that I own and comes in 3 different colours (but obviously I chose…

Checkin’ It Out | 5 Days, 5 Trends | LFW Autumn 2017.

JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser. Reactivate it to view this content. Well hello there, aren’t you glad to be seeing me on a daily basis? Can you believe Fashion week is already over for another season!? My fun isn’t over yet as I’m heading to London Fashion Week Festival this weekend to bring you the latest from this seasons RTW! Remember to keep your eyes on #CopperxLFW for the updates, or check my previous outfits and trend focus in my ‘Fashion Week’ tab. Anyway, this look was a cheeky little focus on checks in the form of this seasons must have: the check blazer. Its a very typical ‘me’ look with the skinny jeans but for one day I just wanted my comfort and it was bloomin’ cold (hence the scarf).

The Teddy Fur Jacket | 5 Trends, 5 Days | LFW Autumn 2017.

This season is already one of my favourites ever. LFW seems to be a little quieter and it makes the whole thing more enjoyable. I love the hustle and bustle when the streets are packed but the fact we could move a little easier is always appreciated. Day two was all about the late afternoon events for me after a boozy brunch date with my friends. JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser. Reactivate it to view this content. Now for day two I decided to rock the teddy bear trend. A style which made its appearance last Autumn but this year it looks set to be one of the biggest trends. Teddy fur coats have already creeped onto the high street with so many style variations to choose from. I’m actually so pleased there was a comeback because what could be better than literally wearing a teddy bear around for the…
