Birthday Gifts!

Hi Guys, sorry I've gone back to posting sporadically. I'm still working on my dissertation as well as working my three part-time jobs plus now I'm doing job applications so I can try to get a graduade job (fingers crossed!) so it's all been a bit mad for me recently but I promise I'll get back to daily posting soon. In the meantime here are a few of the things I received as birthday gifts from friends and family .



I am very nearly out of my favourite perfume Chanel Chance Eau Tendre and it's not cheap so I can't tell you how happy I was when my mum gave me a bottle for my birthday :D. I think it's the perfect perfume for someone in their early twenties - sophisticated but still fresh, girly and slighty sweet. When I get to my 30s I think I'll wear the original Chance which is a bit heavier and smells more sophisticated

Trend alert!!! Not so Mellow Yellow...


It's official. Neon yellow is the colour of the moment this Spring ♥. I'm seeing it everywhere and I must say that I love it! Particularly because I already happen to have a few pieces this shade in my wardrobe so I'm already ahead of the trend - bonus! I love colour trends because they're the most versatile. You can go all out and wear a lot of it like in a jumper or just have neon yellow nails and still be rocking the trend. All of the high street stores have something to offer as you can see below! 

Jeans: Hollister, Scarf: Boohoo.com, Sunglasses: Bank, Necklace: New Look, Skirt: Misguided.co.uk, Shoes: Converse, Earrings; New Look, Satchel: Cambridge Satchel Company, Nail Polish: China Glaze, Top: H&M


If you're feeling a bit iffy about this bold hue I've just posted a video on how to wear this colour here on my YouTube channel. Check it out, you might be surprised how easy it is to make it fit your style. I'll post some outfit pictures of me wearing this trend here soon too so keep an eye on this blog!

My New Hair

In all the madness that's been my life recently I completely forgot that I haven't showed my new hair here on my blog. I've been using hair relaxer (perm if you're American) since I was about ten years old. It's a harsh chemical treatment that permanently straightens the hair by breaking down the bonds which make it curly in the first place. Some people get relaxers with no problem but I find them to be really damaging to my hair, they dry it out so it breaks off at the ends and I've never been able to grow it past the shoulder length. I've been used to wearing hair extension of some sort on and off (but mostly on) since I was ten. Here you can see a variety of my old hair looks...


1. With braids in my last year of school aged 18. 2. I loved the versatility of clip-in hair extensions 3. A half wig - I really like this length on myself. 4. A good weave 5. And a very bad one. 6. Bleached and dyed burgundy 7.  The burgundy faded fast 8. And eventually the bleach broke of my ends 9. Twists - far too fat n looked like bad dreadlocks! 10. I finally chopped that relaxed out! I hated it this short though.

About a year ago I decided to stop give up on relaxers and try to learn to love my natural hair and heeere it is...

Feelin' Blue...

Hey guys, I'm back with another outfit post! I love these posts as I get to show you guys my style without the limitations of my wardrobe. This would be my ideal lunch date outfit for this spring. Cobalt blue is huge this season so I decided to make that the focal point of this outfit. I love these baggy tie-dye trousers, I've seen them on a few different bloggers recently and was incredibly happy to find out they're from...
