Chuck on a grid skirt day


Skirt. top & shoes, New Look. Chain, Primark.

Just a quick one of my other day's outfit. Coral lips, silver chain, grid skirt, and chunky caged shoes. A easy outfit to chuck on for work and a skirt I have already talked about on the blog. I have been loving mini skirts at the minute. The whole 60's vibe has been in, A check, grid or plaid skirt, with a long sleeved turtle neck top = perfect. Throw a boyfriend coat into the mix and some over the knee boots - which I have yet to decide if they would work for me and to find the right pair if I was to invest in some.

TRIANGL - Milly New York Noir




I have seen Triangl bikini's all over - posted by bloggers on blogs and Instagrams. I fell in love with their minimal designs and the amazing box they come with. Good packaging is a way to my heart. I was over the moon when Triangl contacted me a few weeks ago offering to gift me one of their bikini's - any of my choice. How could I choose one when I had at least three top faves. The Milly - Indiana Ice and the Dakota Superfuly were perfect, but I stayed with my comfort zone and went with the Milly New York  Noir. A slight leather look, black and makes one sexy bikini for my holiday next year. Nothing like preparing right? The bikini comes exactly how it appears on the website and arrived so quickly. A lovely company to deal with. But ok, I have to let summer fantasising go. Bye Celine sunglasses, triangl bikini's, sliders and cocktails and back to the warm reality of Christmas, oversized jumpers and hot chocolate. But I hope this post points anyone in the right direction for the ultimate bikini next year.

Sunday positivity


It was decided that after I had my 30 minute work out, morning shower, popped on my body lotion and did my usual tan routine, followed by a good tidy - and a clothes wash sort out - that I could treat my self with a chocolate cookie protein shake and a re read of August Vogue - the inside scoop on Victoria Beckham's life. I am not usually that super productive but I woke up in such a positive and productive mood and I love it when that happens. I don't want to fool you guys or make you think I work out everyday because I haven't in ages and it is something I need to get back into - going on runs and using my boyfriend's weights to help myself tone up. I can get in serious 'health freak' moments and I am starting to have that phase again. Lets hope it stays this time. I read a quote the other day which I need to keep reminding myself of, 'A year from now you will wish you had started today'. I am in my early 20's and if you start looking after yourself properly from now, imagine how thankful you will be for it even in 20 years time. It's got to be worth it. And I'll leave with a second cheesy quote, 'You can change your future by changing your attitude'.  That comes with everything. It's cringe but it's true.

High neck tops and fur scarfs

Turtle neck, Primark. Jeans, Topshop. Faux fur scarf, knit & shoes, New Look.

Oh how I love autumn/winter weather and getting wrapped up in faux fur, wearing turtle necks and investing in knitwear. Christmas lights are being turned on, Christmas music is playing in the shops,  I have already got my advent calendar sorted(22 years old and what).. oh and most importantly I had my first Gingerbread latte at Starbucks in their famous red cup. Christmas is here and I am loving it already.
