    B for burgundy and beach

    (shirt & necklace - H&M, shorts - Topshop, gladiator sandals - New Look)

    WOW! What a long hiatus from blogging! Gosh, I've certainly missed it and certainly shaking my head on how I've lacked so much when it's summer time!

    Here's a post I've been meaning to post weeks ago. Just a simple shirt and shorts combo with burgundy and white as my main palette since burgundy is my favourite colour.
    I added snippets of one of the beaches here in Cornwall too since I wasn't able to visit any this year I thought I'd throw it back a year.

    I hope you guys had a good summer and are ready for this Autumn that descending more and more. Anyway bisous x

  2. classic denim

    classic denim

    (denim jacket - carboot, dress - River Island, Vans via Office, lips - Born Pretty)

    Loving the sunshine weather England's currently having and so taking full advantage of it with light dressing with a pastel dress and just a classic denim jacket in case it does go cold cause everyone knows England's weather is bipolar. Took out these bright green Vans as well as I've not worn them in ages and it just reminded me of how comfy they are and can totally add statement to an outfit.
    Some black lips too for some edginess and would've loved to have a choker necklace too but I'm still in the hunt for a good one, otherwise this outfit would've been ace on my books :)
    Check out this review and links with discount for the black lipstick I'm wearing in this post.
    Hope y'all are having a fab summer so far :) xo

    Born Pretty

    (Born Pretty:
    lip balms - dark plum & cherry,

    Hey lovelies, summer is here and England has been looking pretty nice with the sunshine here and there. Speaking of looking nice, here I am back with a beauty review, cause who doesn't like to look pretty once in a while right? :)

    Born Pretty is an online makeup shop and here are some items they have on offer within the site.

    If you've been following me for a while now, you'd know my strong affinity for lip products that if I had to choose one make-up item only it will be a lipstick, guaranteed.
    So when given the choice to choose from the wide range of items in the site, I obviously deviated to the lip products first and chose these 2 lip balms in dark plum and cherry colour. I know it's dark and wintery but I kind of dig the idea of dark colours during summer and a dark lippie just gives the right edginess.
    The products are lip balms and not lipsticks so the formula is really soft on the lips but stays on like a lipstick without drying your lips and making them chappy.

    I also chose an eyeshadow palette cause you can never have enough of pretty colours :) I chose a palette with some shimmer and matte shadows for texture and chose one with more of a pastel theme for subtle summer eye make-up.The colours are pretty, the top row can be used for day and the bottom one more for night or just mix and match. The shadows stay on for hours too, of course with the help of eye primer for longevity.
    There's a range of different palettes to choose from in the site as well if you're more into brighter or darker shades.

    Finally the last item is the angled foundation brush. I actually wanted this to use for contouring as I wanted an angled one to make hollow cheek effects easier to achieve and this certainly holds up to that. The angle totally helps for contouring but at the same time the thickness lets you blend the make-up in. It's soft and small enough as well to put in your make-up bag.

    Check out the site for more beauty items here and don't forget you can get 10% off with the code 'JPG10'. For links to the items featured in this post, just click on the item tags :)

    I hope you're having a good summer lovelies xo

  4. Flashback: The Eden Project

    The Eden Project

    A flashback post to last year's Summer time when I went to the Eden Project to check it out. I realised the other day that I haven't posted any of the photos here and for y'all who've been following me quite a while will know how I love to post my travels and my photo diaries (see here). So I thought I would do a flashback post to remind that winter isn't forever and soon the sun will come out and play again and that's a time a lot of us can't wait for.

    We visited the Eden Project as it is one of the many touristy places here in Cornwall and having moved here made it easier for us to just drive there during the weekend and we can't really find an excuse not to go with the nice weather and only an hour's drive away. 
    Plus I do love doing touristy things especially going to places I've never been even within just my neighborhood; adventure is a must.

    I love the Eden Project and the best thing about it is the fact that it is a charity and so we only had to pay for a ticket to enter that day but then that ticket is then valid for a whole year so you can come back whenever you want and I really wished we went back for Winter to see how the place looked but nevertheless I shall make my visit again soon. 

    The project looked amazing inside and out. If you're a nature person then this is definitely up your street, the trees, the flowers, the plants, everything is just stunning. I don't really want to go into depth with everything or else this post will be so long, longer than it is already with lots of photos to take in. 

    So what I'm going to do is just leave you guys a link to their site (click here) and you can find out more about it and if you have particular questions then feel free to leave them on the comments and I shall get back to you as soon as although I've only been there once but the imagery and everything about it is still fresh in my mind.
    Also visit the place if you're ever down the great Southwest, it is a fun day out, one you won't regret :)

    Remember that spring is coming soon so hold on to your wits and feel positive :) xo

  5. joggers for college

    joggers for college

    (spike hat - Romwe, faux leather top - Primark, joggers - H&M, bag - River Island, shoes - New Look)

    One day I just decided to wear joggers to college and I didn't even care. Got to college and as soon as my tutor saw me he said: 'Did you jog to college?' whilst a classmate said: 'You look like a rapper' 
    Fashion ey! 
    These joggers are insanely comfortable though. So much room for your legs to breath, I guess that's required if I was actually wearing them for jogging but let's be honest, running is hateful and I don't do running so these babies are sadly just gonna be used for general wearing.
