Black and White

I wasn't so sure about the 'mom'/boyfriend kinda jeans trend at first, but I have to say they've really grown on me. I was also desperate for a pair of distressed jeans too so when I saw these mom/boyfriend jeans with distressing I knew I had to have them! I have to say, they were a little tight at first but after a couple of wears they're so comfortable now and I can't stop wearing them. I don't often wear looks like this but I am a complete convert to the sort of 'off duty model' look. It's so casual and easy to wear, and throwing on a big floppy hat just completes the look.

John Frieda Volume Products Review

When I first started blogging I did quite a bit of beauty reviews and general beauty posts but recently I've found that's not really where my interests lay. But when I was given the opportunity to try out the John Frieda Luxurious Volume range*, I couldn't say no. This particular collection is focused on creating volume for hair, which is something I've always lacked. Watch my review below to see how I got on, as well as before and after photos! Then maybe give my routine a go along side this great tutorial I found on creating more volume, and let me know how you got on!

Before.. watch the video to see an after picture!

Clothes Haul - Primark, Fashion Union, OASAP, The City Rack & Love Hearts and Crosses

I'm afraid there's no What I Wore This Week post today as quite frankly, a post showing me in a variety of PJs wouldn't be too exciting. I haven't been very well this week as, on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning, I was taken to hospital and have only just started to feel better. I've also had uni work to do before I start again tomorrow, so haven't been wearing anything but my slops!

I thought I'd share with you a few bits I bought/received recently instead (the one day I did get dressed this week, I wore the jeans and leopard print pumps shown below, so that's kind of a What I Wore (for one day of) This Week, right?).

Silver Skirts and Print Crop Top

Another little outfit for you today. This is a pretty summery look and I don't know about where you are, but the weather is actually pretty opposite right now! It's been raining and cold the past few days, but I couldn't wait to share this look with you anyway. Hope you like :)

April's Resolution

So April is finally here (wtf, so quick) and that means it's time for a new resolution. March's was to have no lazy days, and yet again I didn't fully complete it. Not for lack of trying though, I had to have a couple of days in bed from damaging my back but after that made the most of every day!

For April, Jack and I have decided to do a joint one for moral support and not drink anything other than water for a month. I've already struggled today as my usual routine is to have a coffee in a matter of seconds after waking up, so work today was particularly difficult!

As always, I have to make slight exceptions to the rules as I might just explode other wise. So as well as water, I can have sparkling water, squash (only very rarely) and herbal teas as I like having a hot drink every now and again.


Let me know if you join me! Wish me luck!

Midi Pleather Dress

Recently I've had a sudden love for midi skirts and dresses, especially when paired with little ankle boots or socks and heels. This dress from Warehouse is literally perfection in my eyes as it's midi, it's black, it has pleather detail and is super flattering in my opinion. I paired the dress with my trusty black ankle boots (I swear I don't wear anything else nowadays!) and my big floppy hat which is another piece I'm addicted to at the moment!

What do you think of this look? Are you into the midi length at the moment too?
