Beau Beads UK Choker Necklace

I was going to just  include this necklace in an outfit posts, but sometimes I feel special items can get lost in the blur of a whole outfit and wanted to make sure it got the recognition it deserved. This gorgeous chocker is from Beau Beads UK which is a jewellery brand recently started by my lovely friend Emma. I literally cannot stop wearing it as I feel it gives a really effortless edgy look to a what might be otherwise plain outfit! There are loads of others to chose from on her Etsy store so I'd really recommend having a look. These little chocker as well as all her other items are only £6, which I think is amazing as it's handmade and something like this in a high street store could be up to £20!

She is also holding a giveaway at the moment where you could win one of the chokers simply by following Beau Beads UK Instagram page, and liking and regraming this picture! You have nothing to lose so be sure to give it a go!

Falmouth Adventure Outfit

Jack and I went on a little Saturday adventure the other day around Falmouth, popping to the beach, town and the docks. We made a little video of our day which will be up on my youtube channel soon so head over and subscribe to be notified when that's up! We also took a few pictures of my outfit so thought I'd share those with you too!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

As it's that time of the year again, I thought it would be a fab idea to spread the word a little more about Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Having a following on here and other social media platforms allows me to share things with lots of you but I really appreciate my following numbers when it comes to sharing something truly important like this.

This is a subject close to my heart as my mum had breast cancer a few years back, and although now she is fine, there are many others who either have it worse, or sadly don't come out the other side. Even the smallest donation helps hugely, which is why I have made this little chart below to show a few things you can purchase from all price ranges from which a certain amount of the cost go to the charity and the links where you can purchase them from!

Breton Top and Midi Skirt

A new look for you all today! This was just an outfit I was going to wear to uni one day until I felt lazy and decided not to go in so thought I'd just photograph this cute outfit instead!

This skirt is one I found in a charity shop a while ago and decided to make it into a cute midi skirt, so if you're wanting to try out this style but don't want to spend too much on your first midi then I'd suggest searching for a super cheap skirt in a charity shop and giving it a chop!

What I Wore This Week #14

If you're looking at this post on the homepage of my blog you will see that below this post is last weeks 'What I Wore This Week' which means I haven't posted for a week and haven't been a good blogger. But despite not being a good blogger, I've been pretty good in the rest of my life-y things.

I've been in uni everyday for the whole day then returned home to help cook dinner, do job and get early nights. But whilst I've been good with my real life, I seem to lose it a little on my online life, so apologies! I'll be back to normal next week with new posts every Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday as well as new videos on Tuesdays and Saturdays. This weeks videos have been a yellow make up look tutorial, the first in my Tunisia holidays vlogs, and today's brand new outfit of the day. Anyway, onto this weeks daily looks!

October's Resolution

- Last Month -

If you saw my last month's resolution post, you may remember my aim was to go from sleeping on two large pillows at night down to nothing as it is supposed to help aligning your back and get a better nights sleep. I did manage to get to nothing, but I ended up getting such a bad neck as I always sleep on my side and reckon the back aligning would work better if you slept on your back, that I have decided to stay with one small pillow as I get a much better sleep that way!

- This Month -

This month I will be carrying on with the well-being, self improvement type resolution and trying to do a few things better for my body. Firstly I want to try and exercise more. It's an obvious one but I have just joined the cheerleading group at my uni and went to my first session last night. It was great fun and having done cheer before, it was so nice to get back into it! They train twice a week and I'm going to try my hardest to go every week as not only is it great for fitness, it's also really nice to get out of the flat and have a break from doing uni work!

Little locks!

This month I'm also going to see if I can challenge myself to wash my hair less. Since having it cut short, I have to use much more heat on it as if I left it to dry naturally or style without heat, it looks like a big heaped mess! By washing it less, it eliminates about 4 hair dries a week which would be so much better for it! My aim is to wash it once a week (with a huge help from Mr Batiste!) and maybe again on days where something special is happening.

Will you be joining me on any of these? If so let me know on my twitter, it's much more fun doing it with someone else! I also have a new September Favourites video up on my Youtube channel and have popped it below if you want to have a watch :-)
