Fresh Faced with Garnier.

Over the last couple of months I’ve been giving my skin a well deserved break, opting against make-up on most days and favouring natural skincare to help unclog my pores and give me back the blemish free face that I once had. My skin seemed to hit a phase this year where it had enough and decided to erupt – possibly down to coming off birth control (accidental, I’m going back on it) but it also could be climate changes, stress or a number of other things. So with that all in mind, I used Croatia as my testing ground for change. I took minimal makeup with me and decided to embrace being natural. In total my base was only applied maybe a handful of times and usually consisted of concealer and bronzer only with foundation remaining untouched. I honestly just didn’t care for wearing makeup, I liked being able to rub my eyes…

Travelling as a Fashion/Style Blogger.

    Its been quite a tough transition going from living at home with an ever-growing wardrobe filled with options, to a suitcase that has to remain under 23KGs. I’ll admit that over the past three months there has been a few times when my eyes have wandered. I’ve had to pull myself away from spending money but refrained to the delight of my bank balance. It actually meant that I discovered more outfit options using clothes that I already owned which gave me way more enjoyment every morning when I got dressed! Before I left the UK, I tried to find other style bloggers who had also set off around the world on long trips and found it quite difficult. There aren’t many girls have left the comfort of home to take their fashion blog to go around the world! Thats why I felt the need to write this post. Its a kind…

Leather Jackets Are Never A Regret.

As I’ve been chasing Summer since earlier this year, my collection of ‘warmer weather appropriate’ clothes is far outweighing the knitwear. My once overflowing Winter wardrobe has slimmed right down to make way for lighter pieces. Because you know, because I plan on avoiding the cold weather for as long as possible.. Sorrynotsorry for the beautiful location of this post too. While in Malaga, Gemma and I decided to shoot some looks quickly before dinner. Sometimes other bloggers get the best shots because we just get it don’t we? We know what works for the ‘gram and this post is no exception! I guess the main talking point of this look is the £10 playsuit.. yep, a tenner!! I originally brought it from Primark as a ‘throw me on’ outfit but its actually now one of my favourites for everyday wear. I picked it up on a whim and just assumed it would be taken straight back for being…

The Trick To Perfect Legs With Wilkinson Sword.

What do you think of when you imagine a woman with wisdom? Now I’m not saying that I’m this gal full of wisdom with a crystal ball but I do like to think that I’m quite clued-up on certain aspects of life and echo the glimmer of someone wise within these pictures.. (bohemian vibes and all) I like to think that I’m quite wise when it comes to advice. I’m the friend that will always give you a genuine opinion and welcome you with open arms. But alongside this, I’m also pretty good at looking after my skin and in particular, my legs. Being quite short and flat chested, my lower half has always been my favourite and I do pretty much everything to protect my favourite assets. Whether its multiple gym sessions, flattering outfits or endless beauty products – you can bet that I know all of the tricks! So…

Spanish Beauty in Frigiliana.

Frigiliana is one of the most beautiful towns in Spain. So I had to share these images with you the minute I was home.. Getting lost in unknown towns and wandering aimlessly down cobbled streets is one of my favourite things to do. Whether its in the UK or somewhere further afield, there is something so calming about discovering new places and appreciating a rich sense of history within nature and architecture. Thats why I loved Frigiliana. Last weekend I was lucky enough to go to Spain with Otterbox and one of our road trips lead us to the little town of Frigiliana – famous for its Santorini style streets and beautiful views. Its set back from the sea and staggered across a mountain top so the views are beautiful, but you do have to climb a fair few hills and stairs to get around. Throughout the day we came across…

Classic Accessories For Summer 2017.

Classic style; def – “wardrobe staples. clothing that remains stylish throughout multiple seasons and becomes a timeless item” JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser. Reactivate it to view this content. How often do you buy into trends each season, only to banish the pieces to the back of your cupboard when something new comes along? A lot right!? Don’t get me wrong, I love fast-fashion as much as the next person but there is something so refreshing about classic accessories that remain timeless and work with each season! I know what you’re thinking – timeless means investing in designer but that’s not always the case. You’ll be surprised to know that most of my classic accessories come from the high street. With a little love they last just as long! Granted that sometimes the quality is way better but even if you did want to splurge, there’s so many discounted websites…

Bohemian Vibes | BrandAlley.

   When it comes to designer purchases, I’m still the girl that spends hours justifying why I need to spend so much money on one item – mentally planning outfits to justify the spend. I guess it’s the student in me because so many years of my early adulthood were spent broke. I was trying to be Carrie Bradshaw and saw my bank account weep too many times. It was always a tough transaction – even if the items were worn continuously. You’ll probably know by now that I’m trying to work on curating my wardrobe down to being more timeless. My focus is on quality pieces that I will wear a lot of rather than just on quick trends and smaller price tags. This has led me to plenty of internet browsing. I’ve become quite the designer scrimper and managed to save the pennies without opting for second hand pieces. JavaScript is currently…

Maxi Dresses For Shorter Girls | Summer 2017.

Well well well, if it isn’t the first of many outfits coming to you from Malaga – all of which will be kept in the handy ‘travel’ tab at the top. If you hadn’t seen already on my instagram, I had the pleasure of spending the bank holiday weekend in the Spanish sunshine with Otterbox and a group of other influencers. There is more on that in some #DaysOfCopper vlogs coming soon but for now, lets talk maxi dresses for shorter girls.. and every girl! I’m only 5ft3 (and a half.. trust me the half counts) and like most shorter girls, shopping for dresses can be a challenge. No matter on the style you choose the length is always a bit of an issue. Maxi dresses in particular are always far too long so I’m forever tripping up but things are changing this Summer.. JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser.

May to July Travel Update | Where Next?

The pictures for this post are slightly irrelevant, but I’ve never shared them and needed a little something.. lol. Its about time I gave you a travel update isn’t it? How crazy is it to think that I left for South Africa exactly three months ago, and right now I’m sat at my Dads house wishing I was back at the beach. As its the three month ‘anniversary’ of leaving England, it seemed like the right time to catch you up on where we’re heading next and a few things we’re thinking about for the rest of 2017.. as a very chatty, very ramble travel update (but whats new there..). So obviously for right now, I’m back in the UK on my own. I’ve had a few questions in the vlogs about why Adrian isn’t coming with me but its quite difficult to explain. Basically my visa was only for three months…

Must-Have Summer Styling with Shoeaholics.

Have I caught your attention yet? Who wouldn’t want to know about discounted designer shoes! I’ve been aware of Shoeaholics for years after an ex-housemate (whose bedroom was piled high with shoe boxes) told me how incredible it was for discounted designer shoes – up to 70% off retail price dontyouknow. I’ll admit that many of my purchases were made during uni hours with money that should have paid for my rent, but each pair was so worth it when my cupboard was filling up with designer shoes and now I’ve got the chance to work with Shoeaholics, I can share my love with you so that you can make better accessory choices too (or like me, shoes that can’t pay your rent but probably should have). So I have two pairs of shoes and a bag to share with you today which were chosen after a lengthy browse of the website,…
