TIBETAN PEACE GARDEN.

three tier necklace // primark (old) leather jacket // barneys via il2l (here)+ white tshirt // primark (similar here) city bag // h+m (here) lilac jeans // cheap monday via sojeans (here)+ studded boots // ebay (here) Over the weekend I headed to the Imperial War Museum in London with Josh. Our main reason being my university project being based around WW1, although we both have a huge interest in the war. Neither of us had actually been there before so it was something new and so fascinating, especially the Holocaust exhibition. Anyway, once we had finished in the exhibition and with Canon in hand, outfit pictures were taken in the gorgeous Tibetan Peace Garden – situated right outside the museum and seemingly perfect for some shots (chosen by Josh – he’s getting good at this..). My outfit for the day was fairly simple and just featured my Cheap Monday lilac jeans with an easy oversized…

MAC PRO LONGWEAR FOUNDATION.

pro long wear foundation // mac (here) Check me out, blogging about beauty all of the time! I’m beginning to enjoy writing out reviews and speaking about new products, there is something so addictive about buying beauty products! This foundation was a naughty little purchase of mine back in June whilst in duty free. I’d gone to the MAC counter in search of a coral lipstick and ended up with that as well as this – a foundation which I’d seen spoken about within the beauty community quite a lot. Upon buying this, I was actually really impressed with the pump and how it ‘locks’ so the product doesn’t go everywhere – much better than having a lid which can get lost. When I got around to using it for the first time, my thoughts on its application were varied. I found that it gave a good colour and coverage,…

A DESIGN ROOKIE.

Following on from my post featuring Tilly Jayne the other day, I am bringing you the next of my favourite bloggers – Natasha, a 22 year old graphic designer from up north! She is a dog lover and even has her own jewellery brand which you definitely need to check out (linked in her blog). Natasha’s blog, A Design Rookie is fairly high on my favourites list. After meeting her at an event over the summer – I fell instantly in love with her style and personality, she’s probably one of the friendliest bloggers that I’ve met! The style of her outfit posts makes her images worthy of a magazine as they have quite an editorial feel. She edits them to perfection and each time there is a new post, I’m so quick to click and read. If you don’t follow Natasha already, her links are all through this post.…

NO FUR PLEASE.

I’d love to say its a staple but I sometimes find it quite hard to style because its sleeveless and our weather is all over the place! England is probably the country with the most unpredictable weather in the world – surely thats a proven fact by now?  Along with the gilet, I chose to keep it fairly simple with my black tshirt dress, ripped jeans and these adorable houndstooth flossys (review here). These are still by far my favourite shoes alongside the leopard print flossys. Obviously all of that black needed a bracelet worthy of…

THE NEXT.

lipstick // ooh la la, topshop (here)shirt // next, mens (here)jeans // new look, custom (similar here)city bag // h+m (here)boots // quiz clothing (here)+ Yet again, stealing my boyfriends clothes. If you asked him then he would tell you most of his clothes end up living with me. His shirts are one of my favourites to steal. As he’s 6ft4, they are very long on me and brought in a large means they drown me slightly – but thats the style that I love at the moment! My bag is the Zara city bag dupe from H&M which is only £30 and it fits absolutely everything inside. Its my favourite for using every day especially to university.  These boots are my current autumn favourites. They are from Quiz Clothing which is a brand that I normally look to for days when I’m feeling less casual, but these are definitely…

JOSHUA JAMES JEWELLERY.

thomas sabo black obsidian and silver bracelet (here)+thomas sabo fashion charm (here)+ Joshua James jewellery is an independent jewellers that stock various brands such as Pandora, Nomination, Troll Beads and many more. Their store is based in Hessle, East Yorkshire but they can mainly be found online with a vast range of jewellery to suit all occasions and styles. Their website is both eye catching, easy to navigate and in classic colours so isn’t too straining on the eyes – its probably one of the most attractive jewellery websites that I’ve seen! Does anyone else remember the hype around Thomas Sabo a while back? Everyone and their wife just had to own one. There is something so simplistic but lovely about the classic styles of the bracelets mixed with one or two delicate charms. For my bracelet, I wanted something black but simple – opting for the unisex obsidian bracelet due to…

DOUBLE TARTAN.

I feel like these are a better reflection of my personality and how much I like to wonder around, while Josh snaps away until I’m satisfied there could be a couple of good images! Its only upon writing this post that I’ve realised the entire outfit is made from New Look and Missguided – two stores which are favourites due to their affordable but fashionable clothing. In my local town,…

LACE SPECK.

The girl that I spoke to was really lovely, giving me lots of information about the brand and offered me this perfect jumper to style up. They stock in New Look and ASOS but do also have an independent website which is linked above. Admittedly, its taken me a long while to get it onto Copper Garden but I feel that it may appear a little more from now. I don’t really dress in the best way when it comes to university (which is where I spend 90% of my time), so my outfits haven’t been too…

ATOMIC LIPSTICKS | MAKE UP REVOLUTION.

Yep, beauty is back to this blog! I am still keeping my beauty blog live for the previous reviews and product directory, but it made sense to bring beauty back so everything is in one place. Switching to two meant that I had more to update and I often neglected beauty, now I feel like its going to be more cared about and more seen! Make Up Revolution is a brand that has become more than just a staple in my make-up collection – its a holy grail. Despite being really affordable, the products are good quality which is hard to come by.  These five lipsticks make up the new ‘atomic’ collection which has been created to give lips a more dramatic and intense look with darker, bolder shades. I personally love the colours as they are so autumnal, fitting in perfectly with the darker colours in my wardrobe and…

PERSONAL BLOG PLANNER.

I’m one of those people who is super organised on paper, but in reality I’m the complete opposite. I’m a sucker for diaries and planners and currently have; a wall one with all dates, a filofax, a phone planner, a university planner and now a blog planner. Thats way too many planners for one girl but I feel like it organises me best.  When Personal Planner approached me to have one of their planners, I instantly knew it would be perfect for arranging my blog life. When it comes to blogging, I always write down the posts/videos I’ve scheduled, ideas for posts/videos, anything being sent to me, events that are coming up and I always have a list in the back of items for hauls that month (because I always forget what came when).  The personal planners allow you to completely customise the planner in every way. You can add…
