LFW AW15 DAY 1 | What I Wore





 Pajama Suit: Vintage
Belt: Vintage
Suede Jacket: Vintage
Hat: Warehouse
Shoes: Clarks

Now my next post shall explain all about my wonderful first day at LFW but first i thought i would tell you about my outfit!

Basically, me being me I never learn and didn't plan a outfit. This led to me aggressively searching through my wardrobes in hopes and finding some treasure and luckily i did!

This pink pajama suit is actually pajamas and was legitimately in my PJ draw screwed up at the back. Turns out my mum bought it back from Vietnam or Cambodia years ago. I love oriental print and bright colours which i'm sure is going to come back into style soon.

Now what is in style is the 70s - it is everywhere! Through my recent modelling for Bird On A Wire i now have a obsession with suede and was ecstatic when i found this black suede blazer that my mum was going to throw out.

It was LFW and bloody freezing so i had my mums thermals on underneath (apparently i insisted a few years ago i didn't need thermals and that they were stupid). I was VERY glad to have my mums thermal bottoms hoisted up and tucked into my bra.

Last bit of info about this thrifty outfit. I was being interviewed/ street styled by Maybelline and they asked what lipstick i was wearing. Now you all know i'm no beauty blogger, the lipstick is however a gorgeous orange colour that was my Nans. As i explained to the reporter its probably very out of date and does have a kind funky smell but i love it.

This outfit just proves hoarding is always a good thing ha!

Pastel Fur Coat: Boohoo (now only £35!)
Boots: Ark*

Sully from Monsters Inc, a Hubba Bubba - i've heard it all when it comes to this coat!

I fell in love with the coat the minute i caught eyes on it - its a pastel, fluffy, 90s dream! I hardly ever take it off, it genuinely completes me! ha

The reaction to this coat has been pretty hilarious as well. I was sat in a Starbucks and a little boy ran up and started stroking me. His dad then had to come and pick him up and asked him 'did you just come over here to stroke this ladies coat?' The boy shyly nodded, pointed and said Sully. I guess i could paint myself blue and start doing kids parties - cheaper than taking your kid to Disneyland.

Bucket Hat: H&M
Pizza Top: Velvet Sphynx*
Microsoft bottoms: O-Mighty
Nike Roche 

I don't really know what to say about this look. I got my bucket hat on, pizza over my boobs and Microsoft of my legs. I was feelin pretty fly.

Oh and one other thing - life's too short to wear boring clothes.

Pizza Pants: Velvet Sphynx*
Over The Knee Boots: Public Desire

Here is the second post of the ball pit series!

Hope you all had a great Valentine's day! I finally got a Valentine's date... with my 80 year old Grandpa! We went to the cinema to see 50 sha... just kidding we went to see Shaun The Sheep! I also got a Valentines Card but its making me kinda suspicious how it had the same handwriting as The Easter Bunny, Santa and The Tooth Fairy.

I thought it would be appropriate to shoot my pizza bikini bottoms with my rainbow fur heart jumper! Both things I love immensely and as every single girl knows 'who needs a boyfriend, when you have pizza!?' The only thing missing from my ball pit/ sassy outfit fun was a massive Domino's!

 Luckily my sister and I had an amazing Domino's/ Prosecco girly night last week after i did my first shoot with the great brand and best vintage finders EVER Bird On A Wire but more on that later!

Who let the dogs out?






This shoot is why i nearly got band from going to charity shops by my mum. 

I LOVE charity shops not only because often the charities are dear to my heart but also because i always love searching for some unique finds! I may have taken it up another notch though when i came out of a Thames Valley Cancer Research shop with this crochet blanket (£2) and a massive bag of multi plastic balls (£3.50).

Naturally the first thing i did when i got home was empty them all in my bath to create my very own personal ball pit! 90s eat your heart out! 

I also thought it would be a great creative way to showcase my new bikini from the amazing brand Velvet Sphynx! The founder Bettina creates the most incredible unique prints and designs that i cannot wait to rock on the beach in a couple of months! For the time being though you can find me wearing it in my ball it. 



[my mum thinks this post is going to get loads of hate comments so please be nice]

Green Juice Detox | Detox Tea


So this is a bit of a different post. 

I'm going to start doing more lifestyle/health/ fitness posts as its been a big part of my life for the past couple of years. 

I thought i'd start with a guide to some of my favorite juice recipes as well as a intro to my new favourite thing of detox tea! 
 
I find Banana/ Kale green juice is great for a lunchtime snack as its very filling. 
I used:
  •  1 medium banana
  • 1 cup chopped kale 
  •  1 cup almond milk 
  • 1 tablespoon of Flax seeds

I did a take on my fave Apple, Kale and Lime drink at Waitrose
I used: 
  • 1 Apple
  • 1 Cup of kale
  • A dash of lime
 I used: 
  • 2 medium apple, cored and roughly chopped (peeled if not using a high-powered blender)
  • 5 1/4-inch slices cucumber (skin removed if waxy)
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • *add ginger for a greater taste 
 This is my favorite breakfast smoothie

I used:
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 teaspoon of Meridian peanut butter
  • 1 cup of Almond Milk 
  • a dash of cinnamon




 I also love avocado in smoothies! Try this recipe:
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 Tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ½ medium avocado (50 grams), pitted, flesh scooped out
  • 1 cup frozen mango cubes
  • 1 pitted medjool date
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
 


At the end of last year I wanted to give detox tea a go and now I am obsessed!

 I started Nudey Tea* 14 day teatox and cannot talk more highly of it!  It tastes yummy, like a mixture of green tea/ginger, which is perfect for this cold winter weather.

However, the best thing is how it make you feel! Now i had read many reviews about different tea detox's and was like 'really? can it make you feel that good?' but it really does! By drinking to tea i felt cleansed and had more natural energy rather than the caffeine high's and low's i usually get when drinking coffee. The detoxing qualities also means one cup a day keeps the bloat away. I am starting the gym in a few weeks, ah first time im ever signed up to one (eek) im excited to see the results when im working out of drinking my Nudey Tea!
